MCCONNELL: TEA PARTY 'BULLIES' WHO NEED PUNCH IN NOSE
Breitbart ^ | November 22, 2013 | Matthew Boyle

Posted on 11/22/2013 9:34:00 AM PST by Star Traveler

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said on a conference call organized by Karl Rove’s 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 that’s what we’re going to do.’”

Someone needs to recommend that Mitch order his packing boxes next week so he gets an early start.

The tea party is the best thing to happen to the GOP since Reagan. Too bad they’re too wrapped up in big government and corrupt cronyism to see it.

It is time to replace this party, folks. Now or never. I have never been a third party type, and I am not now, but this party needs to go.

So Mitch, how many votes do you think this will yield for the Republican cause after you start punching your base voters in their noses?

Brilliant strategy!

RE :”Haha. I’ve been warned by the moderator not to change the title so I always copy directly from the site”

It was a small change removing the first word ‘exclusive’ and capitalizing the rest of them.

Makes searches harder.

Its not locked yet though.

“Exclusive” wasn’t the title of the article. The “title” is everything after “exclusive”.

“Exclusive” is what a paper or magazine says when describing the “type” of article it is.

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, it’s time for pay back. You and yours bullied us first and took all you could from us. Now it’s time for you to get taken to the cleaners.

Punch back with a contribution to the campaign of Matt Bevin. Bevin is opposing McConnell in the Kentucky primary in 2014.

I suggest making the contribution through the Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF), a group of patriots that McConnell hates. 100% of your contribution through SCF reaches the candidate. SCF was the group that first introduced Ted Cruz to me with their endorsement of Cruz for the U.S. Senate seat in my home state of Texas.
