Skip to comments.Juan Williams: Republican leaders must keep Tea Party on the run
Posted on 02/17/2014 5:06:21 AM PST by lowbridge
Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnel (R-Ky.) are now in position to end the Tea Partys death grip on the Republican Partys political future.
Last week, Boehner and McConnell faced down the Tea Partys threat to cripple the government when they supported raising the nations debt ceiling. That move prevented GOP political suicide.
If the nations credit rating, stocks and the recovery went down the sewer because of Republicans refusal to raise the debt ceiling, the GOPs chances in the midterm elections would have been severely damaged.
Having successfully defied the Tea Party on the debt ceiling, now it is time for Boehner and McConnell to use that momentum to pass three bills: An extension of unemployment benefits for people suffering long-term joblessness; a minimum wage hike; and, most important of all, immigration reform.
The Tea Party caucus in the House and the Tea Party star in the Senate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) are never going to love Boehner or McConnell. Both Congressional leaders have tried for years to accommodate Tea Party passions but they can never do enough.
By standing up to the Tea Party now, the GOP congressional leadership can create a legacy. They may suffer attacks from right-wing talk radio. But they will go into history as the team that made it possible for future Republicans to win elections with the support of some working class and Hispanic voters.

So how are they going to do that, Juan, when the TEA Party comprises their base voters?
Juan has become more of a bleeding heart leftist since 2012. I wouldn’t listen to a damn thing he says. This only reflects badly on McConnell and the shame caucus. We should us Juan in ads against them.
Shut up, Juan. Just shut the **** up!!!
The imbeciles in the GOP-E will take this to heart. Funny how the dems wants to destroy the Tea Party and the GOP-E are their lackeys.
Juan Williams is as useful as teats on a boar. Roger Ailes is wasting his money, paying “contributors” such as Williams, Whorealdo, and Beckel for their tired Leftist drivel.
We don’t watch Fox as much as we used to.
Juan is the purveyor of the talking point de jour.
He is projecting the leftist wacko fear
Tea party on the run from the liberal republicans.....LOL! The Pubbies have been running from the tea parties!
Juan's advice to the GOP :Become Democrats.
Where would Juan be if his hotline fax machine from the White House broke?
They need to stand up to the communist fringe that has taken over their party. If they will stand up and reject the radial leftist agenda being pushed by extremists like Nancy Pelosi and embrace a moderate agenda which includes passing a constitutional amendment outlawing abortion, lowering tax rates, and impeaching President Obama they might have a chance to create a legacy. They may suffer attacks from left wing news outlets hosted by sodomites. But they will go into history as the team that made it possible for future Democrats to win elections with the support of some working class white and evangelical voters.
sadly...Bonehead will take his advice
Juan Williams is the George Costanza of political pundits. Whatever Juan says, the correct course for Republicans is the exact opposite.
What a leftist liar. Twisting and distorting reality to create an illusion of what he wants to see the liberal way - 1 truth to 3 part lies (minimum), stir, spin, and the idiots will believe it without understanding the context or history.
Juan Williams (to the RIGHT of most on FOX) wants
Americans to “eat dog food” to help his undocumented
corrupt Master, the Union thugs in the IRS, and the DNC.
The Tea Party gets in the way of his dream
(a nightmare for the American people as they are slowly
Juan, The Tea Party will keep the GOP at bay.
Individual candidates are receiving more direct contributions, while the GOP fundraising languishes.
And THAT is as it should be.
America has been compromising with the devil for too long.
It is past time to move back in the RIGHT direction.
I'd say the jury is still out on that.
You think so, little buddy, you think so.
“Roger Ailes is wasting his money, paying contributors such as Williams, Whorealdo, and Beckel...”
RA is smarter that that. IMO he is just trying to show liberal idiocy at its finest.
Looking a little “gay” and RINOish in his photos online:
150 years ago the Republican party was the anti-slavery party fighting democrat tyranny. Today, the Tea Party is the anti-tax-slavery party fighting democrat tyranny.
A house divided will fall...
When your enemies are fighting, just throw more fuel on the fire to keep it going....
Well lookie here, ole Juan has been busted for plagarism before. Sounding more RINO than ever now:
We’re running alright. We’re running right towards DC with pitchforks and tar in hand.
Poor Juan...not the brightest bulb on the string but Fox’s “token” to keep them fair and balanced, therefore an unfortunate necessity.
“Having successfully defied the Tea Party on the debt ceiling, now it is time for Boehner and McConnell to use that momentum to pass three bills: An extension of unemployment benefits for people suffering long-term joblessness; a minimum wage hike; and, most important of all, immigration reform.”
And, being the good RINO’s they are, we can be certain that they will...
The politics of capitulation. Sickening.
There, fixed Juan's statement.
Juan Williams is the ONLY member of FOX who
is against arming al Qaeda.
For reasons known only to Boehner, but appear to border on High Treason to the United States of America, Boehner as Speaker of the House, has failed his Constitutional Duty to begin Impeachment Proceedings on B. Hussein Obama.
Writing, reasoning or in any manner communicating with Obama will only increase his resolve that he is doing the correct Commie thing in his eyes and in the eyes of his former Pakistani Mentor and bride.
The Millions of Insured Americans that Obama has financially and medically damaged by Obamacare are just Collateral Damage for the common Commie Good of The Utopian Society that will rise from the ashes of the America that Jarrett, Holder and Obama absolutely hate with every fiber of their sorry, sorry beings.
In Obamas mind the Chinese and the Russians made mistakes with their brands of Communism, but the Commie Triangle of JarrettHolderObama will not make the same mistakes because he knows that he can do whatever he wants, and knows for certain THAT BOEHNER WILL NEVER RAISE A FINGER TO STOP HIM.
Thus to them, all is going well, ESPECIALLY if we complain, because they interpret our high level of pain as the correct pain of index necessary to achieve the death of the former America they hate.
In my humble, but USUALLY correct opinion, nothing will get better for us Americans until Boehner is removed as Speaker. His Constitutional Duty failure as Speaker borders on Treason.
Thus, our efforts should be directed at our Republican, Independent and Democrat, ( RID ), US House Representatives to DEMAND that Boehner Resign.
The pantywaist RINOs such as RINO Rep. Peter King of NY will run around with their hair on fire, screaming THERE IS A SPLIT IN THE PARTY !
Let them scream. Im in this for my Children and Grandchildren, and I will NEVER put Party above Country EVER as their obsolete RINO screaming does.
For example, 3 days ago I asked my local RINOs secretary to send a letter to my un-named sorry RINO Rep requesting 3 things from him: 1.) Impeach Obama; 2.) Insist that Boehner Resign; and 3.) Support Trey Gowdy for Speaker Of The House.
Next week I will re-word, re-write and send it myself, by snail mail.
The next week, Registered Letter, etc.
My goal is a symbolic one: April 15, 2014 is the deadline for Boehner to become just another House Member from Ohio, and publicly stating to the Left Stream Media that he wants to spend more time with his family.
Remember this: A Dictator only has the power that the People give him.
DONT TREAD ON ME
Juan Williams can shove it up his racist, liberal arse. He is absolutely clueless.
Yes, Juan is so VERY kind to look out for the Republican Party.....
Oh by the way, Juan, TEA PARTY folks were among those who CAME TO YOUR DEFENSE when the bigots at NPR were calling for your head.
You know when Salon keeps track of just anout everything he says, he’s on of their own, whether married or not:
This moron thinks we are on the run? How does he think the GOPe’s sneaky amnesty scheme got shot down? This is another stupid liberal trying to impress someone.
You know when Salon keeps track of just about everything he says, hes one of their own, whether married or not:
If you start listening to what Juan Williams says you’re already defeated. I’d believe the opposite.
The Tea Party is the only chance the country has of surviving. Of course the Marxists hate it.
Pray America Wakes Up
John Bohner and Mitch McConnoll, Edorsed by Liberal Talking Head Ex-NPR Lacky Juan Williams...
I bet you won’t see that on their Facebook Pages!
We are running?
Sounds like we formed a Square and are standing out ground.
Juan is one of the AA elitists who makes millions from the DC system.
Pray America is Waking
Tea party exposes the racist communist agenda of the Democrats, so Juan the Democrat wants the RINOs to stop it.
some things are so self evident they don’t even need a sarcasm signal
Hey Juan — you all could keep chasing that illusionary Tea Party. In November, you will find out that it’s simply WE THE PEOPLE.
Thanks Juan, I am sure they will head your well meaning advice.
What a country we live in where an idiot like Juan Williams actually gets a paid forum to deliver his political opinions.
Juan Williams is a card carrying moron.
