Posted on 06/27/2014 6:57:27 PM PDT by ObamahatesPACoal
At a Democratic leaders press conference on Thursday, Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said that House Republicans are too afraid of the Tea Party to pass immigration reform, adding that the reality is that the Tea Partys power has already peaked.
The New York Democrat and longtime immigration reform supporter said that House Republicans are led by false anti-amnesty rhetoric from Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, and conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh. Schumer noted that recently ousted House Majority Leader Eric Cantor is the only member of Congress that the minority Tea Party voters were able to remove from office.

Winner Ratcliffe touted self deportation of illegals.
Lee Terry won by 6 points by painting his opponent as a Rubio or Jeff Flake. Fiscally conservative and pro-amnesty. They still are trying to get rid of him with a third party.
Walter Jones with the help of Laura Ingraham defeated beltway insider Taylor Griffin against 1 million from Adelson and Ricketts.
Doug Lamborn survived by 6 points when he touted he has never supported amnesty for Dreamers or any other group.
No incumbent would want to be in Thad Cochran's position. Thad Cochran doesn't even know what is going on this week so he has no stress.
What,the Tea Party peaked earlier this month? Isn’t it a bit too early to reach such a conclusion.
I wouldn’t want to be in Thad’s shoes. He could be looking at jail time if the massive voter fraud is linked back to him
Chuckie is dumb as usual. No, the Tea Party hasn’t peaked Chuckles. They’re just getting started. I wouldn’t take Democrats for granted on amnesty Chuck. Blue collar Democrats know who’s going to bear the brunt of the wave of illegals and I think their opposition to shamnesty is only going to grow. A dumb, useless New York liberal is the last person I want to be lectured by.
Schumer is the lowest of all Nazis ever to have lived. What a scumbag.
Thad won’t go to jail. He doesn’t even know what day it is.
Can Thad’s rainbow voters get immunity if they can tie to the bigger fish?
We’re just getting started.
Big talk Chuck. That’s all it is, has-been.
Fornicate that bastitich.
If the Tea Party has peaked, why do the dems keep talking about them?
His ilk don’t subject themselves to the peons, they just foist the illegals amd their crime and disease on us.
Haven’t we heard this epitaph before?
Just useless mumbling by a politician who knows nothing of what he speaks. He must have been feeling neglected and knew the MSM needed a story so he threw them a bone.
Chuck, you ignorant slut...
Hey Schumer, you wish! You just can’t wait to see the GOP to self immolate by immigration. You know exactly what will happen if GOPe decides to go ahead with amnesty in any form. Unfortunately for you Chuckie, the GOPe knows too.
No one’s stupid enough to believe Chuckie Schumer cares a wit about any of us...
Libs always give away who or what they’re afraid of by constantly talking about and denigrating them. The Tea Party, talk radio, and the Koch Brothers. The liberals are sitting ducks. If we had a conservative Republican Party with some guts the Democratic Party could be smashed into a million pieces and they would be the ones on the verge of political extinction.
Schumer is hitting the panic button. Those amnesty is dead.
Don’t disagree with anything you said. Another barometer of the dems.; any politician they praise is a politician they don’t fear (Romney).
I think the democrats and republicans have joined to battle the tea party. Republicans don’t care if they beat democrats but the do care about beating tea party candidate. that’s why I quit them
Not long ago they announced the TEA Party is dead.
Now they’re trying to convince themselves the TEA Party has peaked.
Soon they’ll have to face facts ... the TEA Party is alive and doing well!
Hey, Chuckie...I got yer “amnesty” hangin’ right heah, little pal. Come get it, Twinkletoes.
When lightning strikes and turns Chuckles the Clown to ashes the better of America will be.
Yes and the faithful black dem voters will also feel bear the brunt of the illegals. No one in the country thinks that the border situation is good. People outside the beltway have brains.
Chuckles, just STFU.
Well, of course it won’t happen :-), and I should have noted I was being sarcastic.
The point I see I didn’t make is, they’re going backward in their proclamations:
They first said the TEA Party is dead...
Now saying the TEA Party has peaked...
Next ... Alive and well.
How many times has the Tea Party died?
Now he is just tanked.
FU Schmuckie, you worthless despicable fascist.
Talk about ‘whistling past the graveyard.’
I guess he is referring to the runoff in Mississippi, where the Dems had to spend millions, flood the Republican primary runoff, play the race card, lie, and break the law in order to win. Why did the GOPe have to do that if our power had peaked and we were on the way down?
They just proved by these unprecedented dirty tricks that there is much more to come.
Oh look! Another one!
They still haven’t seen the true fall-out from the Cochran betrayal - we are getting so tired of their crap that it won’t be long before they all have to come out of their closets and choose sides.
They believe saying it over and over again will dishearten us, then we’ll grow weary and give up.
