Skip to comments.McConnell: We Will 'Crush' Tea Party Challengers 'Everywhere'
Posted on 03/10/2014 5:30:02 AM PDT by cotton1706
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) believes that incumbent Republicans won't have a problem holding their seats in the 2014 elections.
"I think we are going to crush them everywhere," McConnell said about Tea Party challengers in a New York Times interview published Saturday. "I dont think they are going to have a single nominee anywhere in the country."
McConnell faces a primary challenge from the right. The Senate Conservatives Fund, which backs Tea Party challenger Matt Bevin, believes the candidate has a chance of defeating McConnell the the primary.
"Mitch McConnell is clearly in trouble in this primary or he wouldnt be attacking Matt Bevin and declaring war on conservatives," Matt Hoskins, the head of the SCF, told the New York Times.

I sincerely believe that a lot of these clowns fear that if they don’t stay in congress they may end up in prison.
The tea party is about integrity and that means treating corruption the same no matter what color flag they carry.
Are we SURE that he actually said this??? I really don’t believe it at all......not at all. He’s not THAT stupid. I can see him saying that about HIS race, but not the entire Tea Party.
“I think we are going to crush them everywhere,” McConnell said about Tea Party challengers in a New York Times interview published Saturday”
Great strategy dufus!!!
Later McConnel was seen with a gun to his head saying if you don’t elect me I’ll shoot, then you’re next!!!
“As any number of us have said, McConnell and his ilk never go after the democrats with this kind of glee and enthusiasm.”
That’s because the MSM will get mad at them. On the other hand, they have a green light to attack conservatives.
The corporate lobbyists are bankrolling this scum.
Sounds like Turtle Face is as power hungry as John McLame. Talk about feeling “entitled”! Voters in KY need to retire this old coot.
I see this as a liberal “divide & conquer” story rather than substance.
I want to hear the recording.
Regardless, McConnell has to go!
Conservatives need to understand that the most important enemy we currently face is the fascist RINOs.
Geez. Another “uniter.” We’ve already got plenty of those around. For cryin’ out loud, aren’t we supposed to be working together to put a stop to this crap? Oh, wait. That was in a dream I had the other night. Back to reality.
Dissent will not be tolerated, huh?
McConnell: We Will ‘Crush’ Tea Party Challengers ‘Everywhere’
I’m sure King George said the same thing... look for the same results.
McConnell is EXEMPT.
He protects Obama.
He HATES conservatives and their principles.
Absolutely. I personally think he has completely misread the Cornyn primary in TX, who didn't have a real opponent.
GAME ON, Mitch!
Here's the article in question: Link
Apparently he is that stupid.
Another ‘big tent’ republican.
Except now we know that big tent means ‘socialists welcome’ but conservatives stay away.
Is this the same McConnell that played Billy Badass at CPAC?
The article makes the following claim:
Mr. McConnells ad, his first singling out the Senate Conservatives Fund, raises a criticism that Speaker John A. Boehner and other Republicans have leveled at the activists that they are fund-raising and business enterprises more than political operations. The ad refers to unnamed news media reports that assert that the PAC solicits money under the guise of advocating for conservative principles but then spends it on a $1.4 million luxury townhouse with a wine cellar and hot tub in Washington, D.C.
As Chuckie Schumer observed: "We're united. You're not."
I see this as a liberal divide & conquer story rather than substance.
Liberal Republican or Liberal Democrat?
As Chuckie Schumer observed: “We’re united. You’re not.”
Yes, thankfully not all Republicans support cutting vet pay. McConnell, Boehner and Ryan, OTOH, happily threw vets under the bus. Support them and their beltway careerist agenda if you wish. They care nothing for us on Main Street.
I think you’re on to something. I do not put it past the slimy NYTimes to deliberately misquote in an attempt to sow discord and disunity. They are that low.
The Texas Primary is over, and the Tea Party wasn't crushed, nor even a little crumpled. Your statement is already false Senator.
Doubt it. They are simply afraid to the tea partiers, period.
Why would we attack him from thr right? Don’t you know he is a staunch conservative. Sarc.
“The Texas Primary is over, and the Tea Party wasn’t crushed, nor even a little crumpled. Your statement is already false Senator.”
They’re focusing on the US Senate. They are desperate to protect the US Senate from more conservatives.
The Tea Party in reality crushed the establishment in legislative races and others in Texas. The establishment is worried. They don’t have enough money to protect the US Senate and all the state legislatures. And the legislatures will be breeding grounds for innovative ideas, future congressmen and senators and a Convention of States, to rein in the US government’s power.
I know this: Politics doesnt like losers, said Mr. McConnell, who
suggested that a high-profile series of defeats would deflate the groups.
If you dont have anything to point to, it is kind of hard to keep it going.
Some never get over being stupid.
Turtle face! That’s perfect. I was trying to a way to describe for what he looks like!
It is being reported in a whole ton of sources. He said it alright.
Mitch McConnell has got to be removed from office. If he sucessfully wins the nomination, then we may have to bite the bullet and run a Tea Party Challenger against him in the general election.
Under no circumstances can conservatives give this man any support. EVER.
Mitch McConnell must be crushed. And the Tea Party must do the work.
Bevin or Bust!
It is 9:30 AM in Washington. McConnell has had a few hours to finish his coffee and bourbon and take to the microphone to deny this statement. So far... crickets.
Yes, McConnell is THAT stupid.
He epitomizes the mindset of the Republican Party. They claim to be conservative but in reality they’re all careerists who defend THEIR PLACE in the big government structure. Those who call for smaller government are seen as enemies.
I think that he is maybe sensing his impending doom, and tugging on Superman’s cape on the way out.
And they wonder why I refuse to send them money. Actually I should ask for a refund of past contributions.
What I don’t get is how stupid these RINOs are to state this out loud. A smarter RINO strategy would be to fight the conservatives covertly and say nothing bad about the base in hopes of getting a few extra votes come election time.
two word answer to this Bozo..... Matt Bevin
The Taxed Enough Already Party is the first serious threat to the parasitic hold that Professional Politicians in “both” political parties have been uniting to suppress since November, 2010.
The Democrats are suppressing us through the brute force of the IRS, DOJ, NSA, and other Gestapo-Style Federal Agencies.
The RINOs are suppressing us by their statements and cave-in votes to Democrats.
Thus, the RINOs and Democrats have united against us.
Fair enough: BRING IT !
Both the RINOs and the Democrats have Professional Politicians who are dependent on their ability to control those of us who pay Personal Federal Income Taxes, in order to continue to be on our payroll.
Multi-Millionaire, Son-of-a-Mitch McConnell is a true Professional Politician from the RINO Wing of the formerly great Republican Party.
What better way to control us than to make us slaves to them who are the masters of us?
Both Political Parties in our current Communal Federal Government understand that the purpose of naming a Master/Slave Federal Government Program an Entitlement is to deceive the enslaved population into believing that becoming slaves to a Master is something to be desired, and thus reduce the probability of a slave rebellion.
The Master/Slave Entitlement of Obamacare is the most Communal of all of the Federal Government Master/Slave Entitlement Programs, because it can legally collect monies and/or property after death of the Entitled Slave, or from their surviving family members.
FORWARD, the RINOcare RINOS!
FORWARD, the Obamacare Democrats!!
I’m no fan of McConnell OR Bevin. That said, this is a leftist source.
McConnell is a certifiable Lunkhead and is undeserving of continuing in political office. I stopped voting for republicans like him 15 years ago.
I still vote conservative.
Who invited this jack-ass to CPAC?
McConnell has been hanging out with obama and the rest of democrats too long, he is definitely absolutely delusional.
“I think we are going to crush them everywhere,”
So what? is he Churchill now? :-)
When McConnell came out with that old rifle all I could think of was the hubris required to pull such a stunt. If he and his handlers actually think conservatives will now vote for him because he waves a rifle around and promises to do the right thing after decades of capitulation and padding his pockets with cash he, and they, are sorely out of touch with the ways things are today.
That picture goes to show the GOPe are completely un-American and think their bosses, us, are too stupid and ignorant to understand what is happening and what they are doing to our Country.
RINOs go away! Not one cent or scintilla of effort towards GOPe RINOs...all money and effort towards Conservatives only.
If the GOPe is going to poison the well, then they can be the first to drink from it.
I would vote for Hillary Clinton at this point before I would vote for Mitch McConnell.
A traitor is worse than an enemy. McConnell is a traitor. He must be defeated at all costs.
