Posted on 11/22/2013 9:30:20 AM PST by cotton1706
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said on a conference call organized by Karl Roves Crossroads organization for large donors and their advisers on Oct. 30 that the Tea Party movement, in his view, is a nothing but a bunch of bullies that he plans to punch in the nose.
On the call, according to a donor who was on it, McConnell personally named Sens. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) as Tea Party conservatives he views as problematic for him. The bulk of it was an attack on the Tea Party in general, Cruz in particular, the source, a prominent donor, said in a phone interview with Breitbart News.
But the most memorable line came at the end of the call.
McConnell said the Tea Party was nothing but a bunch of bullies, the source said. And he said you know how you deal with schoolyard bullies? You punch them in the nose and thats what were going to do.
Rove, as well as American Crossroads President and CEO Steven J. Law who also serves as the president of sister group Crossroads GPS, were also on the call. Rove talked in a slightly gentler way, or lets say, a more diplomatic way, the source said. But the message was pretty well the same: That if were going to save this thing, we have to back real Republicans.

Mitch McConnell is a power-hungry, vindictive, insidious man.
“Pointing to how Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid just invoked the nuclear option, breaking 225-year old Senate rules to slip through President Obamas liberal nominees, an aide to a Tea Party lawmaker said that McConnells focus on trying to go after the Tea Party has jeopardized Senate Republicans chances at actually beating Democrats. Under Sen. McConnell’s watch, Republicans today just got rolled over by Democrats who pushed the button on the nuclear option, destroying years of well-established Senate order, the aide said in an email to Breitbart News. Perhaps if he focused less on destroying the Tea Party and more on defeating Democrats, he’d have more to show for his leadership.
How’s his conservative primary opponent doing? Bevin, I think?
Can’t wait to see him cry in 2014 despite using every sleazeball tactic the DNC andtheir actiists could throw his way.
FUMM, I support Matt Bevin!!!
See my tagline to see how you can help oust Mitch from the Senate!
That means amnesty and God only knows what else.
I hope Sarah Steelman primaries Blunt.
Yet another old angry man with no concept of what is going on.
I should have realized a decade ago about that beady-eyed little fat boy. He should still be wearing a beanie cap and short pants in my estimation. He is nothing but evil in my book, evil on the scale of Democrats, frankly. Goiter neck? Just another old lying appeaser who treasures power more than the treasure of our nation. He doesn’t even know what it is. Utterly disgusting.
Rush is covering this now. He also mentioned that McConnell said he wants to fix the nuclear disaster orchestrated by reid yesterday by winning back the Senate and then changing the rules back!
Friend of Rove, that's all ya need to know.
“Rush is covering this now. He also mentioned that McConnell said he wants to fix the nuclear disaster orchestrated by reid yesterday by winning back the Senate and then changing the rules back!”
Right, and the meaning is obvious. McConnell wants to help democrat get their nominees through but make sure that no future republican president can get their nominees through “because that would be fair.”
McConnell is such a gentlemanly loser.
Feel the love...
SO ... what will happen in the future, is that when Democrats are in power, they change it to the nuclear option — and then — every time the Republicans are in power, they change it back again! ... LOL ...
You can just abbreviate “power-hungry, vindictive, and insidious” by calling Mitch McConnell a liberal.
He is a liberal Republican. That explains so much about him. That his loyalties are to the liberal agenda, that he would support liberal Democrats, but never conservatives, that he imagines himself an elite whose senate seat is his by dint of his superiority, that he is filled with hate at those who object to his bad behavior, and that he is treacherous and deceptive, calling himself a “hero” when he is but a base villain.
Another politician advocating violence.
I truly hope the people of Kentucky are paying attention to this stuff.
Stop bullying the poor old downtrodden federal government with your meany protests
seriously, will the sheeple by this one?
Love your idea of checks and balances
Evidently, Mitch would love to punch Ronald Reagan on the nose.
The Saudis and Communists who fill McCain/McConnell’s offshore bank accounts each week should realize they need better actors.
Nobody is buying this soap opera.
Geotrge Washington, Paul Revere; and that rest of the group were all bullies as well.
“Bully” is a happening word.
Poor Mitch... Ted Cruz is such a big bully, having the audacity to live up to his campaign promises.
“Owww! Owwwwwwww! Knock it off! I mean it! Hey, stop it. STOP it Ted! Owwwwww that HURTS! I’m gonna tell Karl on you!”
I see... The TEA party, (Taxed Enough Already), is the bully here? We the Taxpayers of the country are getting raped over and over to pay taxes on this, taxes on that and fees up the ying/yang and we are the Bullies?
Fraid not, Senator McConnell, its time for pay back. You and yours bullied us first and took all you could from us. Now its time for you to get taken to the cleaners.
McConnell needs to go
What distinguishes the Tea Party from others on the right is that they're willing to back up their ideas with action.
They're hated because they're willing to act against government expansion rather than just trying to slow it down.
No, he is just a loser, along with all those other GOPe.
How swiftly a liberal’s mind turns to thoughts of violence.
He doesn’t have to worry about changing the rule back. If the dems lose the Senate, their last act will be to change the rule back! They’ve got it all covered!
Karl Rove’s spokesperson:
Rove: “we have to back real Republicans”
At least Rove was honest in making that statement.
They want Republicans. Conservatives need not apply. Conservatives are RINOS. Rove, McConnell, Alexander, Graham, Snowe, et al. are the “real Republicans”. And the “real Republicans” hate conservatives even more than the Dims hate conservatives.
They're still on that high horse named arrogance. They want to give us another one of their own as presidential nominee; they'll lose again.
He done lost his mind!
He is a man whowas never a man to begin with.
I would bet that when he went to grade school the other kids called him a sissy.
