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.
