Skip to comments.Juan Williams: Republican leaders must keep Tea Party on the run
Posted on 02/17/2014 4:43:43 PM PST by yoe
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.
[snip]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.

I was unaware Republicans were in a death grip by stand up Americans....Juan, you make yourself look foolish with such blather.
Sorry Juan but you are 100% wrong.
The GOP needs to stop stalling, stop sending American jobs to foreign countries, and it badly needs to stand up for once.
I no longer expect to see any of those things from the GOP.
Which is why I now support the Tea Party.
Waiting on the national party, to choose.
Juan. Watch your own friggen party morons. We are trying to get rid of our GOPe morons.
juan... I knew that when fox hired you it was a mistake. You are a liar, cheater and thief... and a fricken racist pig!
Last I checked, the Tea Party is not on the run.
From here, it looks like the Tea Party is the last, best hope to end “business as usual” in Washington.
This is what has both Juans -—Williams and McLame in a lather.
What is Juan smoking?
Dude needs to cut back.
The GOPe wants to run against conservatives instead of Democrats
That’s what I was thinking. The GOPe are the ones on the defensive....as is their natural state.
From what I can see, the Marxist Party is on the run.
the Tea Partys death grip on the Republican Partys political future.
I can only say, “Juan, you ain’t seen nothing yet!”
Just wait till we get a death grip on the demorat party.
Can Juan be run outta town on a rail?
Yes, as any reasonable, sane person should understand, Juan Williams only wants what’s best for the Republican party. He sincerely hopes for them to do well in 2016 and 2018. That’s why he offers them his strategic advice pro bono.
People like this need to start disappearing through the holes in the ice...
I like the way that you think brother!
Kinda like Seattle trying to tell Denver on how to run their offense prior to the Super Bowl.........
Why the hell should anyone listen to a libtard trying to tell the GOP on how to win an election?????
Fairly recently I have seen Juan’s son Anthony/Tony on some talking head news show. Surprize, surprize, surprize - he was a Republican!
Juan Williams. One of the reasons I never watch Fox News or listen to Hannity.
They’re on the run? I thought that they’re running for Congress.
The civil war between the Tea Party and the GOP Establishment has been brutal. But could it be the reason congressional Republicans aren't putting the heat on President Obama for the IRS scandal?
Democratic pollster Pat Caddell thinks so, and radio host Rush Limbaugh said it's plausible. One historian even told Breitbart News the modern GOP resembles a "crime family."
"The establishment Republicans want the IRS to go after the Tea Parties," Caddell told Fox News on Sunday.
"When you have 71 percent who want an investigation, 64 percent who believe that it is a sign of corruption including nearly a majority of Democrats," Caddell said, "the reason is the establishment Republicans want the IRS to go after the Tea Parties. Got it?"
Kinda like the coyote giving chickens advice on how to run the henhouse.
Just looked up the genesis of Republican party - first convention in 1854 with 44 house seats taken in 1854. They lost the Presidency in 1856, but WON it in 1860 with Lincoln.
I’m really looking for a new party to emerge to represent WE THE PEOPLE and uphold the Constitution. We need this SOON.
attacks on the TEA Party when they should be attacking Democrats... and why should we vote for them?
What Juan doesn’t seem to get is that when you have
someone on the run, eventually they get tired and
make a stand, they you have to put up or shut up.
It’s time to STAND!
Wishful thinking Juan. As inept as the GOP is the American people, by and large, know who’s responsible for the economic catastrophe, and 2014 will be another disaster for America’s Socialist Democratic Party.
I won’t vote for RINOs and you won’t either.
“Don’t throws me in dat briar patch!” said Bre’ Williams.
Juan is like a backward compass, do the opposite and you’ll be right on the money.
I guess I didn’t get the memo. I didn’t know they had us “on the run.” LOL!
Affirmation the GOP-e is a collection of scumbags that must be primaried.
My, my. All these liberals so concerned about the Republican party.
You know why? Because they want a weak establishment GOP to keep the uniparty going.
Juan is an unreconstructed Obamophile and liberal.
“By their enemies ye shall know them.” The Tea Party should feel pleased.
“strategic advice” and Juan Williams? That made me laugh!
Juan is a silly dude. He should do stand up.
The following comments have been attributed to Democrat political operative James Carville (aka Serpenthead, an appellation given him by his own wife). According to the alleged myth-busting website Snopes, owned and operated by a leftist Canadian husband and wife team who have been often caught shading or ignoring altogether information inimical to their leftist agenda, Carville never said this:
(Begin Carville’s alleged statement.)
“Ideologies aren’t all that important. What’s important is psychology.
The Democratic constituency is just like a herd of cows. All you have to do is lay out enough silage and they come running. That’s why I became an operative working with Democrats. With Democrats all you have to do is make a lot of noise, lay out the hay, and be ready to use the ole cattle prod in case a few want to bolt the herd.
Eighty percent of the people who call themselves Democrats don’t have a clue as to political reality.
What amazes me is that you could take a group of people who are hard workers and convince them that they should support social programs that were the exact opposite of their own personal convictions. Put a little fear here and there and you can get people to vote any way you want.
The voter is basically dumb and lazy. The reason I became a Democratic operative instead of a Republican was because there were more Democrats that didn’t have a clue than there were Republicans.
Truth is relative. Truth is what you can make the voter believe is the truth. If you’re smart enough, truth is what you make the voter think it is. That’s why I’m a Democrat. I can make the Democratic voters think whatever I want them to.”
(End of Carville’s alleged statement.)
My point in bringing this to your attention?
Whether Carville said these things or not is completely irrelevant. The fact is that we are living in the midst of an era in which a distressing portion of the Democrat electorate is proving those words accurate beyond any question or doubt.
And that begs the most important questions we will ever ask: Will America the admittedly imperfect IDEA the Founders sought to leave us survive this very dangerous era? And will it survive long enough for some of us to continue improving this fragile experiment in the freest and most productive system in the history of the world or will we allow those whose only goal is to accrete and wield power by any and all means to destroy it and replace it with a system that has failed each and every time it has been attempted?
Each time I deal with this topic, the words of the perspicacious Baltimore journalist back when journalism was still an honorable profession Henry Louis Mencken come to mind: The urge to save humanity is most often a false front for the urge to RULE!
If we fail to correctly answer those questions in the next national elections, God help us.
But then, since we kicked Him to the curb decades ago, why would He?
Looks like we’re on our own and we probably only have one or two more chances to get it right!
Juan is obviously terrified of the tsunami coming in November.
Personally, I know no one that wants “An extension of unemployment benefits for people suffering long-term joblessness; a minimum wage hike; and, most important of all, immigration reform.”
Juan is an idiot and a fool.
Racist Juan and the liberal left are scared to death of people who believe in freedom!
The Tea Party will change into a new force—undreamed of at this time, but the seeds are planted and only needs blood to grow. It will be a new force upon the land.
Sunday afternoon I attended and video documented the inaugural meeting of the CT GOP Tea Party Caucus. RTC and state central members were present.
The Tea Party controls about 30% of the Ct GOP.
And the best candidate for governor, Joe Visconti from West Hartford, is a 5 year Tea Party activist.
In this video Joe goes head to head with State Senate Minority Leader John McKinney from Fairfield, at an RTC debate Sunday. McKinney was one of the architects of the harshest gun law in America, and he claimed he saved our guns.
CT Gun Candidate vs Gun Grabber Candidate Joe has nationalized his campaign. Today the Hartford Courant (the oldest newspaper in America) in its editorial compares Joe to Wayne LaPierre of the NRA.
Won’t someone, anyone just kick this guys sorry ass??
Can’t keep up with the constantly changing fortunes of the Tea Party,the Tea Party is dead,the Tea Party is running the republican party,the Tea Party has no influence,the Tea Party is destroying the country.GEESH!
Who really cares what the liberal Juan Williams wants? The repubs and the demodummies are still afraid of the Tea Party and all Williams wants is the repubs to do the work of the demodummies. Typical.
Juan doesn’t need to tell the republican party what it already is doing - tamping down the Tea Party.
I have often said here that the pubs have no problem with the IRS harassing the Tea Party. Now Pat Cadell has brought it up, and Rush mentioned his comments yesterday.
Juan is one of the main reasons I stopped watching Faux News.
