Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell defended himself Tuesday against a narrative that says he is opposed to the tea party movement.
Im a big fan of the tea party movement, McConnell told Fox Newss Neil Cavuto, when asked about his criticism of the Senate Conservatives Fund, a tea party group which is backing a Republican primary challenge against him in Kentucky. I think its been extremely important in helping us regain the House and do well in the Senate in 2010. There is one particular organization that I was talking about, which I think has been counterproductive.
The Senate Conservative Fund is one of a number of different tea party groups, McConnell continued. It is the one that I think has engaged in outrageous behavior thats cost us seats. Im a big fan of the tea party writ large. I think the whole movement is devoted to trying to do something about government spending and debt has been very, very helpful to the conservative cause.
The Senate Conservatives Fund supported Utah Sen. Mike Lee and Texas Sen. Ted Cruzs failed Defund Obamacare strategy to stop President Obamas health care law from being implemented. Republican opponents of the strategy, like McConnell, argued that the effort couldnt possibly succeed so long as Democrats remain in control of the White House and the Senate.
Do you need any help packing?
Funny how he “comes around” now, after seeing primary challengers such as Bevin rise up.
Take a hike, Mitch.
We’ve done heard waaay too much from you. Adios.
Only obama can tell lies like that and get away with it with his party.
Whatever Turkey neck.
Ain’t yoos the same fella who wanted to sock us in the face a couple weeks back?
Harry Reid I expect that kind of talk from and he might have the ability ti carry out a moronic threat.
But, we don’t talk violence in the present nor as an act if aggression.
Maybe you feel threatened politically and you vainly believe you woukd make an example out of us?
We wish no harm for you and would never think of commiting any act which might harm you or anyone else, except it be from a right of self defense.
I will take you up on your threat with maybe a pillow fight or “whack-a-mole” mallets whike standing in a pit of whipped marshmallow creme?
I love whipped marshmallow creme.
I’d demand a stipulation that it be televised on Nickolodean.
“Im a big fan of the tea party writ large.”
Why yes Mitchy, this is exactly the vernacular of the people outside the beltway. He’s as bad as Bush being amazed at a barcode scanner, or Obama being embarrassed when someone at a campaign event offered him an iphone and he didn’t know how to make a use it.
The ruling class is way out of touch.
FU McCornhole, you Rat POS.
That’s no vernacular, that’s a doiby!

Mitch, Mitch, Obama’s B!tch.....
Who does he think he’s fooling?
It’s not a rhetorical question. Seriously, who does he think he’s fooling?
you know how you deal with schoolyard bullies? You punch them in the nose and thats what were going to do.
I guess he musta been talking about a defective tea party that they'll replace with a good tea party (with a higher cost and no supporters in their network). Won't stand for anything...won't get anything done...but at least they'll be more presentable at the Capitol Grill.
