Friend, I Accept
Email | Mitch McConnell

Posted on 05/21/2014 7:08:05 PM PDT by ObamahatesPACoal

Thank you. I am humbled to once again accept your nomination to represent Kentucky in the United States Senate.

I just walked off stage, and I wanted to let you know how grateful that I am for your support. You and I both understand how important it is to take back the Senate in 2014 and fix the problems created by the big government liberal policies that have run amok. Now more than ever, anything that you are able to contribute to my campaign will help us win in November.

This is just the first step on the road to victory in November. President Obama and Harry Reid's hand-picked candidate, Alison Lundergan Grimes, has been fundraising with the top liberal donors in places like Hollywood, New York City and Chicago. She's running to do their bidding, and if we end up with her as our Senator in 2014 then this is what we can look forward to:

A continuation of the 'war on coal.'

More spending and debt.

And Obamacare will be the new norm.

And the icing on the cake: Harry Reid will retain control of the United States Senate.

Is this what you want for Kentucky and for America? I didn't think so. Please, contribute to our campaign now and help us fight back:

Mitch McConnell deserves to be forced to live in a 6” by 12” room where every inane, compromising statement he has made is played through loudspeakers on repeat. His leadership abilities are worse than your typical high schooler’s.

Not a freaking chance in hell after you declared war on Conservatives and vowed to "crush us wherever you find us".

I'd rather Grimes take your seat than continue to have you cut our legs out from under us with the enemy behind closed doors and then have your minions slit our throats while we sleep in the GOP camp.

I'll write in my dog come November if I have to rather than support or vote for you Mitch.

You wanted a war on Conservatives, you got one. Good luck winning without Conservatives. We're through with you, as you said you are of us.

I already judged Mitch on his lack of support for Ted Cruz when he fillibustered Obamacare. I can’t vote in Kentucky but McConnell would never get my vote. Period.

” - - - fix the problems created by the big government liberal policies that have run amok. - - - “

This is why the GOP-E are Doormats to Democrats!

Son-of-a-Mitch makes the following assumptions:

1.) Federal Politicians are capable of “fixing” problems;

2.) Problems are created due to the “running amok” of big government liberal policies.

The historical reality is as follows:

1.) All “fixes” by Federal Politicians result in additional problems due to the many unintended consequences, cost overruns, and higher taxes.

2.) Big Government Policies and Liberal Policies have always failed, or otherwise “run amok.”

3.) There has never been a “Big Government Liberal Policy” program that has not gone bankrupt, (outgo>> income), within four years from legal inception.

McConnell is just another Doormat to Democrats Republican who is NOT TAXED ENOUGH ALREADY!

Exactly my point. Mitch McConnell and the rest of the elitist establishment GOP can sh!t all over you and your liberties, but come election time they know they have your "lesser of two evils" vote. In the meantime, nothing changes except the degree leftward the country slides.

Same here.

I'm all for mutinies in the primaries, and we have well made some valid points; that said,

It's so critical to reconcile during the general.

Look what has happened to our national defense and our economy and our way of life. The First and Second Amendments are in jeopardy.

There are no perfect candidates or perfect office holders.

Our way of life depends on coming together for the general elections.

It is imperative GOP gets 51 senate seats and boot Reid from majority leader. It is the best chance to impede the community organizer’s agenda.

I see you have your memes and your catchphrases all ready to go....”throwing a tantrum”, “taking toys and going home”, and no doubt the line about “purity” isn’t far behind.

You can trot those out, and more, ad nauseam. I don’t give a rip. Go ahead and be the good little lapdog for liberal Republicans....Karl Rove said that people like you would ultimately vote for them, and he was right.

Meanwhile, you delude yourself that these traitors to the country are somehow an improvement over the left, even though they support amnesty, refuse to do anything about Obamacare, and lack the guts to give us any kind of principled representation.

So when the GOP officially adopts queer marriage as part of the platform, maybe you’ll still be able to convince yourself that giving them your support is somehow a “lesser” evil.

Me? I choose NO evil.

I'm not part of that parade. The point is we no longer have choices. Our pro-Constitutional, pro-liberty candidates get swept aside by the GOP-e and millions of voters reflexively go with either the establishment (R) or (D) candidate. But, backing an establishment candidate who has spoke against those (Ted Cruz and Mike Lee) who stridently oppose the Caliph Hussein, repeatedly insulted the conservative base of the party and eviscerates his conservative primary challenger with far more passion than his leftist opponents in the general, is nothing more than being an easliy gulled stooge.

It is imperative GOP gets 51 senate seats and boot Reid from majority leader. It is the best chance to impede the community organizer’s agenda.

The rub here is none of this may not even happen. Hussein has bypassed congress numerous times with blatant disregard to the Constitution. With the exception of two senators that I know of, the Republicans have proven to be ineffective and, even worse, too afraid to all-out oppose Hussein's reign of tyranny. Instead, they talk of working with him to get some considerations that fall from Hussein's table like so many crumbs. Furthermore, Mitch McConnell may have burned too many bridges with the conservative base to put him over the top in the general.

There are plenty of folks who will no longer gobble up the excrement the elitist GOP establishment types like McConnell dish out to their base. Then again, maybe I'm wrong. Maybe plenty of folks like being GOP stooges.

The fact is, dozens of bills passed n the house do NOT even get a chance to debate in the Senate. Harry Reid has the power to stop any bill coming up for debate. And he has used this power ruthlessly. At least McConnell is likely to be better than Reid. Then bills have a chance to pass the senate. Then Obummer must veto them and it is on record for every low information voter to see.

Correct, Chris Buckley is a buffoon. His endorsement of Obama proved that beyond any doubt.

Of course that has nothing to do with the Buckley Rule.

Does the idiocy of Ron Reagan Jr. in any way diminish the presidency and legacy of Ronald Reagan? No, of course not.

The same is true with William F. Buckley.

Great men are not remembered for the stupidity of their offspring.

Congratulations, Mitch would no doubt approve of that sentiment.

Firstly, I said nothing about staying on the sidelines. I'll vote downticket, but no damned liberal, regardless of party affiliation, will ever get my vote. It's just not happening.

Secondly, my concern is not being "relevant", but rather holding onto my principles.

Great post Catherine.

I'm leaving GOPe behind for the sake of my children and grandson. I just turned 60, and want to leave a better country to them. GOPe will run us over a cliff at 30MPH, while Democrats are breaking the sound barrier.

There is no doubt in my mind that the average politicians are conducting themselves much like the looters and moochers in Atlas Shrugged, trying to keep things afloat for one more term, or until they can find unwary producers to leech off.

Votes for GOPe are similar to Henry Rearden's travails prior to the epiphany he finally encountered, thanks to the lessons provided by Francisco d'Anconia.

I am not retiring to the sidelines, I'm freeing up the GOPe to rev up their engine of destruction, so I will be there to assist my family in reconstruction. They will need my guidance, wisdom, and leadership to survive the looming hard times.

I will also be there to support conservatives as they do battle in the public square. As long as they're willing to fight, so are we.

Do you hear me, John Cornyn? Do you hear me, David Dewhurst?

At least I know Ted Cruz hears us!.

Unfortunately, there are too many who seem to be stuck in this rut of reelecting big government, establishment Republicans in the hopes something will change. As if there will finally be a return to our rightful course with the GOP-e at the helm. The old lather, rinse, repeat cycle and yet we lurch further leftward.

I'm afraid there is no way to nudge them from this rut. They are left to hope there will be enough votes to put their old, power-guzzling, moss-back, Beltway GOP-e statists over the top without the support many in an increasingly alienated conservative base. As for me, I'm done being a Republican dupe.

I don’t think Mitch needs your vote desperately. So it is ok if you do not vote for him in general.

What I want is to get rid of Harry Reid as senate majority leader. He is stopping all good bills passed by the House. Not even a debate! I will bet my bottom dollar Mitch as majority leader will allow debates and votes on all House bills. If those bills get passed in senate, Obummer will be forced to veto them. It will be on record for all to see.

I do not vote in KY. So I will accept whatever Kentuckians vote for in general. If Mitch loses and GOP still get 51 seats, I have zero problem.
