Mark Levin: If McDaniel loses we consider withholding all support for McConnell in Kentucky

Posted on 06/11/2014 5:41:52 AM PDT by cotton1706

Mark Levin just posted this on his Facebook:

McConnell raising DC money for Cochran. I say if McDaniel loses we consider withholding all support for McConnell in Kentucky. How else do you deal with a scorched earth, petty, power-hungry politician?

I think McDaniel has it in the bag now, but it doesn't hurt to put a scare into McConnell!!

Excellent strategy. Tit for tat. The days of blind loyalty in the general election while the GOP establishment stabs the Tea Party in the back are over. The way they let the Tea Party REPUBLICAN nominee lose in Virginia with no support from the GOP was shameless, and has caused an awakening. There is this realization that the GOP would rather lose a seat rather than allow a Tea Party member to be elected and join Congress. Well, if they want to act like the enemy, turnaround is fair play and all of us will lose. If the GOP sees the light and unites with the Tea Party when they win their primary, we will defeat Democrats and stop the bleeding of our country.

Grimes is much worse than McConnell.

Hold your nose and vote for Mitch.

I agree. But I don’t live in KY.

My mission is to politically destroy every liberal republican candidate, either in the primary or the general election.

People will not hold their nose and vote for liberal republican candidates any more.

The GOPe is like a drunk in a bar.

Talking to them does no good.

They just don’t get the message until you beat the hell out of them.

The drunks friends also get the message, act right or you’re next.

All support should be withdrawn from McConnell based on his behavior (never standing up to Reid and 0bama) and the fact that he is unlikely to move the goal posts between 2014 and 2016 when the ‘Rats are scheduled to take back the Senate.

Brat’s win and McDaniel most likely win proves we DO NOT need a third Party; The Tea Party inside the Republican Party is doing the job! Slowly - yes - but much faster than any third Party in history! And please don’t give me the Republicans as a third Party in 1860 - it was the split of the Democrats then (this is all I am going to say about 1860).

McConnell should be defeated if he wins the nomination. And if there are any conservatives left in SC, they should hold their noses and vote for the Democrat in order to flush Linda Graham out of office.

Nope. Bad move. If McConnell loses, its just one seat regardless of who defeats him. If McConnell wins he will SANDBAG any moves to remove Obamacare, block illegal immigration, etc.

A McConnell controlling the Senate GOP is worse than just another Democrat. But hopefully, the people of Kentucky are smarter than the voters of SC and Ohio and more like the voters of VA.

Absolutely! What a dirtbag! This is exactly how the GOP-e acts. They’d rather support the democrat than a true conservative. This is shameful.

It is not a matter of better or worse with McConnell.
It is a message that needs to be sent.

Brat’s win demonstrates pretty clearly that money doesn’t play nearly the role that voter motivation does. Given that, I’m not too concerned about McConnell raising money for Cochrane ...

Mark is dead wrong on this issue, we need to with hold support of McConnel no matter what, he is a liberal scumbag.

Exactly.

Why should we reward McConnell for failing in his stupid plan, and only punish him if he succeeds with his stupid plan?

He needs to be taught not to make stupid plans.

I am among them. I am a resident of the 7th District in Virginia and for the past three elections I have not voted for Cantor (neither could I force myself to vote for his opponent...cannot stomach Democrats). I gladly voted for Brat, though, and I contributed to his campaign.

These RINOs have such venom for conservatives, they are truly exactly the same as democrats - no difference in them at all. Voting against them is necessary otherwise there is no change to be had. If they can't listen to us and do the will of the people, they need to go.

If McConnell is made to lose it will reverberate through the RINO ranks and will make them rethink who really should run this country, “we the people”. This is a message that needs to be sent in a big way. Holding our noses and voting for liberal RINOs to just say we have the count is how we got where we are.

How about he be sent a message he can’t refuse. A group of senatorial republicans pay him a visit and explain he has too many years under his belt and not enough “salt” left to continue the future fight to save this country. Instruct him he will step down as minority leader so a younger lion can step into his place.

Peace can be kept in the party and we keep a senate seat. His next election we eliminate him in the primary under more advantageous conditions.

I'm in Virginia, but I can tell you that my days of holding my nose are over and done. Period. I will not be voting for liberals who are complicit in the destruction of the country, no matter what letter follows their names.

I think if McDaniel wins we should still withold support for McConnell! ___________________________________________________________________________________________ First of all, let me say I agree with you. But, my question is: Who is Mark Levin referring to when he says "we"? I think true Conservatives and Tea Party folks should do nothing to help McConnell; whether McDaniel wins or loses. KY folks don't need to stay home. Go vote. Just skip voting in the Senate Race. Or, if you think we will win enough Senate seats to gain control of the Senate and dump Harry Reid, then go ahead and pull the lever in the Senate race for Grimes. And please; no sermons about RINOs being better than DemocRATS. I don't give a crap. McConnell has screwed true Conservatives and Tea Partiers time and time again. I say it's time to return the favor. And yes, hell yes; I am as vindictive as hell.

I am thoroughly enjoying reading all the posts from the Pollyanna Republicans, worrying about losing their beloved Mitch in November.

“Grimes is much worse than McConnell.

Hold your nose and vote for Mitch.”

Prove it. Prove that having an R who’s a liberal in the job is worse than having an actual liberal in the job.

It’s the liberals with R’s next to their names that cause the damage. We KNOW where the D’s stand.

I’d rather wreck it, because its going down anyway, and I’d rather not get that look from the R’s, shoulders shrugged, hands in the air, muttering “Wow. Who saw that coming?”

That’s literally what’s going on in the R cloakroom today. “Who saw that coming?”

EVERYONE! I can’t even read the WSJ anymore. Everyday they’ve got some article in their touting record numbers of job openings and how there are as many jobs today as their was in 2008. It’s horsesh!t of course.

But, since they were stupid enough to publish those numbers, and since there are 92 million people not working right now, its not an unreasonable inference that perhaps the gap is accounted for by working illegal aliens.

We’re back to 2008 levels, but we have more people out of work, so the gap is the illegals.

But hey, let ‘em in.

No, McConnell is much worse than Grimes. The Unions are anti-immigration. If Grimes is beholden to them, we might get a sealed border.

You’ll NEVER get that from McConnell. Ever.

Screw Mitch. Your logic is like saying: John and Mary both applied for the job to be my house-keeper and babysitter. I know that this John guy has a record of being a child-molester. I’m not sure about Mary, she’s never served in that capacity, but she might be just as bad. So, hell, I’ll go ahead and hire the guy that I know for sure will molest my children.

No way. I’ll go out of my way to vote against him.

Bevin is way better than Mitch. McConnell deserved to lose because of his “punching the TEA Party in the nose” comment.

However, McConnell at least votes for the right thing about half the time. Grimes will vote for the wrong thing 100% of the time and the senate will lose another Republican seat.

Yes, Mitch is half skunk and half RINO. But we all know he's a RINO and know what to expect. If we send a message, the politicians are too dense to understand why we let Mitch lose. They'll think that the people of KY want full totalitarian dictatorship under Grimes.

A pure red Communist is worse than a pink RINO who we are wary of.

I'd love to vote on principal and see the Constitution Party get 7% of the vote instead of .o8%. But it's more practical to vote R even if they are mostly RINO’s.

Dem vs. Republican is the difference between hitting the wall at 90 mph and hitting it at 20.

I agree. Levin was very good on Hannity last night. McConnell is a blight on the GOP but he will prolly win his race and be back for 6 more years.
threatening him is not a bad idea though.

She is bad but McConnell is just as bad, both are liberal turds and have no problem whatsoever selling out your average American. I have voted for McConnell since 1984, not this time. I would rather face a frontal attack than a knife in the back.

Mitch made it clear he wanted a war with conservatives, the battle is joined. Pissing off your base who was already dubious of your liberal stunts in office in the first place when you didn’t have too to win should get him the darwin award for 2014...

He is one dumb SOB.

Hold your nose and vote for Mitch.

The loss of one Senate seat would be trivial compared to the message it would send the establishment -- Continue working to undermine the base, treating us as *more* of an enemy than the Democrats, and we the base stay home on election day. The message must be sent. (Last night was a good start.)

Instead of fundraising for Cocharan, they should be talking the senile old man into dropping out before the primary. If not, Levin is correct. We might get further articulating constitutional conservative issues to fed-up dems and independents than to get any cooperation from anti-American RINOs.

Another word of encouragement. I heard on Rush this morning an exit poll that stated there was a huge conservative turnout with very little overlap from Demorats - even though they have an open primary there!
