Didn't I tell you that the TEA party was being used by the liberals? Haven't I said that over and over? And you who think you are serving the "conservative" movement won't admit you are being played. I'm sure you will find some way in your mind to distance yourself from this report, but the result will be more revealing.
Big Democratic donors, local liberal activists and a left-leaning super PAC in Kentucky are telling tea partiers that they are poised to throw financial and organizational support behind a right-wing candidate should one try to defeat the powerful GOP leader in a 2014 primary fight.
The idea: Soften up McConnell and make him vulnerable in a general election in Kentucky, where Democrats still maintain a voter registration advantage.
“We are doing a lot of reaching out to some of the tea party folks across the state,” said Keith Rouda, a field organizer with the liberal group MoveOn and the Democratic super PAC, Progress Kentucky. “What we’re finding — at least in this stage of the race — we’re finding that our interests align. It’s unusual.”
Sarah Durand, president of the Louisville Tea Party, said Democratic donors and activists have told her that they’d be willing to spend seven figures in a GOP primary to help a candidate willing to challenge McConnell. [POLITICO]
Good grief folks! It's just like you whack jobs who think some disgruntled gun group is going to have any influence in Washington DC and who rail against the NRA to line up with liberals. The GOP is not, Jim DeMint, the failure that you portray it to be. There is no "TEA Party" and your foaming at the mouth is nothing more than your attempt to advance your own career.
When the hell are the real republicans going to push the extremists back out of the tent where they belong and embrace those who understand that the conservative movement is not built upon momentary fear, conspiracy theories and half witted interpretations of Constitutional Amendments?
Look, I'm as open minded as you can get when it comes to accepting good ideas, but most of these nuts would willingly allow liberals to finance them because in their tunnel vision mob mentality all they can comprehend is how to hate Mitch McConnell. Why would the GOP let these people have a voice at all? And who in their right mind can conceive of letting the left set their agenda and still think they are doing a good thing? Wouldn't that be a little like letting China set our gun policy?
When the Senate has another Diane Feinstein in it, a larger majority to overcome and when the left picks up seats in the mid-terms, then where are these people going to go to protect their beloved "civil rights"? Out to the streets with their guns? Get a grip.
