The Tea Party is NOT THE ENEMY Senator McConnell....get it through your head the Tea Party is made up of Patriots, real Americans....not Progressives (Democrats) which is a euphemism for Socialist or Communist which ARE the enemies of America i.e., a free nation. The Republican Party does not belong to just you and the other 30 year senators....maybe so many years in office has dulled your respect for our Constitution...not so with the Tea Party. Think you should retire?

I suspect that McConnell and Boehner have off-shore bank accounts that are being heavily fed money by the people behind BHO2.

AND this is why Mitch will be out next January. If he defeats Joe Bevin in the primaries, Allison Lonergan Grimes will defeat him in November because HE will have caused decent conservative Kentuckians to stay home on election day by his repeated assault on their values and beliefs.

He is in panic mode. He knows the conservatives WILL take the Senate.

I guess the minority leader wants me to raise that $2 million dollars for SarahPAC instead of waiting?

McConnell is making a huge mistake by lining up against the tea party.

McConnell back off. Now.

You are supposed to be fighting Democrats. Not Republicans.

We have to view his perspective as Cornyn did.

Is the fix in?

Or his he toast? That was Texas’ job, to set a precedent of rooting out the RINOs. We made a decent standing at Senator, big gains at state level.

GO MATT BEVIN!!

Note to Mitch:

“As the Philistine moved closer to attack him, David ran quickly toward the battle line to meet him. Reaching into his bag and taking out a stone, he slung it and struck the Philistine on the forehead. The stone sank into his forehead, and he fell facedown on the ground.”

~ Samuel 17

Hey Philistine! The rocks represent votes in the primary.

*McConnell is making a huge mistake by lining up against the tea party.*

It makes me wonder if the DNC has paid him off to take a dive.

Mitch, You don't understand. You coulda had class. You coulda been a contender. I coulda been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what you are.

I know enough Kentuckians who will vote for Grimes over McConnell just to get rid of McConnell. That could just be limited to those I know, but they sure want him gone.

They’d rather have an open liberal than a traitor in their midst.

********************************************************************

The GOPe would rather have their establishment candidate win the nomination and lose the Senate seat than have a conservative alternative win the nomination and then GO ON TO ACTUALLY WIN THE GENERAL ELECTION AGAINST the DemocRATS.

McConnell has become VERY unpopular in Kentucky. He’s a weasel in a turtle’s shell.

Folks have got to step up and support Matt Bevin, then, and not leave him hanging. Dwayne Stovall only had $75,000 against Cornyn's millions. He did pretty well considering the funding situation but if you actually want to - you know - win, you've got to provide the candidate with some $$$$.

Fodder for ads by Bevin and the Tea Party quoting McConnell.

McConnell, who just days earlier was at CPAC claiming himself to be a conservative, attacks the Tea Party and conservatism.

So, who does McConnell really represent? Who does McConnell really work for?

Don't be too sure....'ol RINO McConnell has been in office long enough to amass a strong machine...McCain would be out of office if his machine wasn't so strong.....maybe he will be out this next time around.

At this point, even if Mitch somehow beats Bevin through crook or hook, I’ll take Grimes over him just to see his sorry carcass tossed out in disgrace.

McConnell (31%) is polling about the same level as Jim Bunning (28%) was. Funny thing is that Cornyn forced Bunning to step aside because they said he would lose to the democrat. Looks like Cornyn wants McConnell to lose to Grimes so he’ll take Mitch’s place.

McConnell barely beat the Democrat 6 years ago. He is toast and Cornyn is licking his chops while encouraging McConnell to run (and lose).

Ever notice that establishment hack Republicans fight harder against their own base than against their (perceived) opponents, the Democrats?

Did Kerry or Obama call Dean supporters kooks or wackos?

When rural Kentuckians don’t like you and don’t believe you’re a conservative, then you’re in trouble if you’re a politician.

So Mitch does CPAC while waving a muzzleloading Hawken rifle......

Does that prove his support for gun rights? Oh h*** no!

Even liberals argue the 2nd Amendment allows ownership of guns such as they were in the Founders’ time. That is, muzzleloaders, flintlocks at that.

Of course there were security concerns. The po-po would have gone all freaky-deaky if McConnell walked onstage with an AR-15. Still, it’s hokey, it’s fake & is exactly like 2004 when Jean F’in Kerry said “Reporting for duty!”

War with the Tea Party? Bring it, ol’ turtleneck.

Why am I not surprised.

The TEA party is generally for balanced budgets and a small CONSTITUTIONAL government, so it's no wonder he's against it.

As a leading member of the kinder, gentler marxist team, he's none of those things.

Go away, Mitch. You've done enough damage.

Good bye and good riddance.

Benson [Guy Benson, political editor of Townhall.com] wondered why McConnell didn't choose his words more carefully and questioned why he chose a "hostile venue" like the New York Times.

Duh. Dumb comment since anyone who follows McConnell's follies knows he's more comfortable with liberal left-wing media outlets than conservative ones.
