Posted on 06/12/2014 12:12:22 AM PDT by lilyramone
One day before Majority Leader Eric Cantor's historic primary loss, the Wall Street Journal reported: Immigration's Primary Effect Muted. One day after, the newspaper is reporting nothing like the shocking upset will happen again. Those senators have been preparing for months and months for whatever might come their way and they wont be caught off guard, Brian Walsh, a paid consultant of the National Republican Senatorial Committee told the Journal for a piece headlined GOP Establishment: No More Surprises Coming.

The arrogance of these guys is beyond belief. I now want to beat them worse than I want to beat democrats.
Reminds me a bit of the UKIP in the UK, who loathe the Tories (conservatives wanna be’s) worse than Laborites.
wouldnt it be nice if these GOPe dumbasses would spend as much effort and energy fighting the marxocRATS that are trying to destroy America as they do conservatives ?
does anyone wonder why they don’t ?
Doug Lamborn is in trouble from Tancredo turnout and supporting Boehner and Cantor.
Adam Kwasman is the best choice in AZ01.
They’ll double down. Of that you can be sure.
Brat is quite smart, though not well seasoned.
We must remember that these are desperate people who want to hold onto their positions and will do anything they can, no matter how slimy, to achieve that.
I take nothing away from Brat and his fine victory, but he was aided by 1: The conjunction (in time) of the election and crisis on the border, and 2: Cantor’s shape-shifting on immigration. He got more than a little lucky.
I believe we can take for granted that the 0bama administration will be looking goofier and goofier as time goes on, and I am not sure if that supports the “experienced” GOP candidates who cower before him or the ones who are at least talking about standing up to them. In terms of the electorate is what I am referring to.
It does NOT do good, IMHO to loudly proclaim Tea Party. There is a lot of animosity towards the TP, it’s totally irrational and manic...but it is there. Nobody needs to spend energy defending their position, they should proclaim what they can comfortably proclaim. I like how Brat associated with the TP and accepted their support but he did not carry their flag. Well done.
I hope, by whatever means, we can get a few more fine candidates like Brat in Congress. Things are getting quite chaotic in the world and we seriously need some adult supervision. And we need to get rid of these pigs of either party who are just in it for whatever they can skim before the whole thing collapses.
Stick to the issues. The TEA party folks will know their own by the stance taken. If RINOs want to distance themselves from the TEA party, they can do it by parroting the Left on the issues, and the choices will be clearer.
I am so proud of Breirbart news, they have kept up his legacy. I worried that they would back down— they haven’t.
We are all Breitbart! I often try to visualize him taking on all the dung we have been handed. I miss him.
We are in tragic times but he would make great sport of it and help us to carry on.
Fight..we can’t ever stop.
One thing that concerns me about Brat is that he can be easily toned down. He is sure footed but when Levin pushed — Brat allowed. (concerning getting too sure about winning)
If Brat makes it to congress... I hope he doesn’t acquiesce.
> wouldnt it be nice if these GOPe dumbasses would spend as much effort and energy fighting the marxocRATS that are trying to destroy America as they do conservatives ?
does anyone wonder why they dont ?
Most likely, cash in large envelopes from tax dollars pilfered from the system by BHO for their cooperation
> Fight..we cant ever stop.
Good always triumphs over Evil. Sometimes it just takes a little longer.
does anyone wonder why they dont ?
When life imitates art. History teaches this is true (and it answers your question):
We went Soviet.
Aye and amen!
Roger Aisles and his lapdogs are as much our foes as Pelosi
I wish the GOP fought libs like they do us.
When ever I hear the name GOP establishment, to me it means “Closet socialist” Just another definition for socialist.
THERE IS NO TEA PARTY POLITICAL PARTY. NEVER HAS BEEN. What you have a re a few “national” organizations trying to glob onto the mantle for their own sheister ends.
Rick Santelli referred to having a tea party in the same sense as the Boston Tea Party. Concerned citizens all over the country found a common call and formed hundreds if not thousands of small local groups and marched on DC organizing by word of mouth. When I saw that Dick Armey had just been named the visual head of what is called The Tea Party Express when the bus arrived, I knew this was not good. I have direct knowledge of how Jennie Beth Martin screwed all of those little local groups who aligned themselves with her Tea Party Patriots. Even though funds were sent to the TPP with promises of residuals coming back for local issues, it sounded too much like sending taxes to DC. My fears were spot on as the group I was with never received anything from them. Politicians received virtually nothing as evidenced in the IRS filings but the administrators most certainly received their fine salaries along with the political strategists. Now for Freedom Works, I have always been suspicious of Matt Kibbe. When I found out that he too is a political strategist by experience that sent off the warning bells. Sure they have gotten behind good people and staged some very good events, but they continually have their hand out and peddle in words far more than actions.
Ever since the rise of these national groups, I have received the endless streams of e-mails with their dire warnings and the bottom line was always send them money so they can fix the problem. A stunning thing happened with the Can’tor loss. Brat was outspent to the tune of somewhere around 40:1 by an incumbent second mot powerful Republican tagged to be the next Speaker. Brat’s arsenal was comparatively nothing more than a clearly defined message and a sincere heart that never wavered, and the people knew it right away.
We have heard the excuses all over the map from the media, one of which they all tried to sing was that low turnout sunk Can’tor. The reality is that somewhere around 50% more turned out for this primary than they did for the 2012.
So for you to say that the Tea Party is this monolithic national political party, by your definition, you could not be more wrong, because they never came calling on Mr. Brat, even when his campaign called on them.
Many worried at the time of the GOPe co-opting the tea party groups to bring them together as one entity under the guise of coalescing a message on a national level but those at the time warned this would do nothing but define a target for both sides of the Ruling Class establishment to blame for all the woes we faced ten and are even worse today. True, they have had some success in doing that, but in no way did brat turn them away, they just never answered the phone, but worse, never picked it up to call.
The bottom line is that one of Reagan’s main themes of painting with bold colors instead of pale pastels virtually works every time it is tried. The problem is the establishment is nothing but a bunch of lawyers who are more impressed with listening to themselves speak to a bought crowd and the media than they are to get into the crowds on Main Street.
“Read my lips” jokes don’t do it enough justice
.....Or, didn’t RINORomney tell you........
WE WON’T VOTE FOR YOU ANYMORE!!
what are they to do, use drones?
What are they going to do? Clock the investigations about the IRS targeting Tea Party groups?
Wouldn’t surprise me one bit.
“I wish the GOP fought libs like they do us.”
They think they have a better chance of beating us. Then they could declare victory over something/anything.
