Skip to comments.“Drunks,” “Bullies,” “Traitors,” “Fringe,” and Other Things Mitch McConnell Has Called Conservatives
Posted on 03/11/2014 5:39:25 AM PDT by cotton1706
Mitch McConnell is doing his best to walk back his comments about conservatives. He told the New York Times he intended to crush them everywhere. Now he says he was only talking about the Jim DeMint founded Senate Conservatives Fund and its candidates candidates like Ben Sasse supported by Paul Ryan, Mike Lee, Club for Growth, RedState, National Review, and others.
Actually, Mitch McConnell has been pretty open in the past about his contempt for conservatives. He has referred to conservatives and the outside groups they fund, as traitors, bullies, drunks, and fringe. He claims conservatives tear up every bar they walk into, and he wants to punch the tea party in the nose.
Those are his words. And he has been pretty consistent over time. Back in 2009, McConnells associates famously put James Dobson in a terribly embarrassing spot when they lied about Rand Pauls record. McConnell sent staff into Kentucky to defeat Rand Paul.
McConnell now says he only meant he wanted to crush the Senate Conservatives Fund, but back in 2009 and 2010, the Senate Conservatives Fund was the group standing with conservatives and Pat Toomey, Marco Rubio, Mike Lee, and Rand Paul against Mitch McConnells supported Arlen Specter, Charlie Crist, Bob Bennett, and Trey Grayson.
It is true that a number of McConnells remarks have focused on the Senate Conservatives Fund, but his remarks have also targeted groups like FreedomWorks, Club For Growth, and others. He is systematically targeting conservative organizations that do not follow the National Republican Senatorial Committees lead. Whats worse, he is enlisting a bunch of useful idiots on the right to do damage control for him and to protect him.

If you think Mitch McConnell needs protection and saving, consider that if McConnell had his way Trey Grayson would be in the Senate instead of Rand Paul; Charlie Crist would be in the Senate instead of Marco Rubio, David Dewhurst would be in the Senate instead of Ted Cruz; Arlen Specter would be in the Senate instead of Pat Toomey; and Bob Bennett would be in the Senate instead of Mike Lee.
When McConnell attacks FreedomWorks, Senate Conservatives Fund, Club for Growth, Madison Project, and even the tea party he is attacking the conservatives who have saved the Republican Party from itself. He is attacking you. So you should defeat him.
McConnell is a democrat in drag
More like Harry Reid’s bitch ...
Odd that he would call us the opposite of what we are.
Mitch McConnell is exactly the kind of limp wristed pants wetter that needs to be purged and replaced with real fighters. We (the right) keep bringing a knife to the democrats gun fight — When are these losers going to start hating getting their arse kicked.
My money has for the last seven years been going to the candidates that I deem to be fighters. No more cowards!!! Especially not the RNC.
I hope the voters in his state do us all proud. Get rid of this duplicitous fraud.
Why this man was invited to speak at CPAC is a mystery to me.
Then the phoney brings a muzzleloader
“...Harry Reids bitch...”
Very disturbing mental image. But true.
Mitch is projecting his own motives and traits on others. At least we now know how he really feels.
I sent $10.00 to Matt Bevin this past weekend...Go MaTT-DEFEAT the liberal McConnell!
McConnell tried to appear to be conservative at CPAC, only hours later to trash conservatives in a NYTimes interview.
Bevin and Tea Party should have plenty of fodder from those to run opposition ads.
Any recent polling?
Does Bevin have a chance to rid us of “Mitch the Traitor Bitch”?
Mitch has the classic ‘little man’ syndrome ...
The IRS Conservative Targeting Scandal involved:
Hundreds of conservative groups were targeted
At least 5 pro-Israel groups
Groups that criticized Obama administration
At least two pro-life groups
An 83 year-old Nazi concentration camp survivor
A 180 year-old Baptist paper
A Texas voting-rights group
A Hollywood conservative group was targeted and harassed
Conservative activists and businesses
At least one conservative Hispanic group
IRS continued to target groups even after the scandal was exposed
And 100% of the 501(c)(4) Groups Audited by IRS Were Conservative
There is NO EVIDENCE that a single liberal group went through the same scrutiny as conservative groups.
What the hell is wrong with this country to put up with this?

That deserves repeating. And an opportunity for a shout-out to the guy who has gained Mitch's deep resentment.
