You have a group that both main political parties hate: the Tea Party.
No, I don’t mean the hucksters who call themselves “The Tea Party” and collect your money to do God knows what with it. I’m referring to the real tea party. The people who having watched the GOP push amnesty under Bush, then push for massive bailouts (also under Bush), and then, the whole mess under a leftist President going into hyper-drive.
I’m referring to the people who made phone calls when they saw what was happening, walked voting precincts and helped the GOP win a House majority in 2010.
We The People.
Well, the Senate Minority Leader, Mitch McConnell, the one you’d think would be hoping that same tea party bunch would give him a majority in the Senate here in 2014, just declared war on that same group of people:
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) didn’t merely say Tea Party candidates challenging him and other established Republicans in the 2014 midterm elections don’t pose much of a threat.
McConnell’s prediction is arguably more along the lines of fighting words.
“I think we are going to crush them everywhere,” McConnell told the New York Times. “I don’t think they are going to have a single nominee anywhere in the country.”
As TheBlaze has extensively reported, McConnell’s most notable opponent is Kentucky businessman Matt Bevin, who is contrasting himself as a true conservative and blasting McConnell’s conservative credentials.
“Mitch McConnell is clearly in trouble in this primary or he wouldn’t be attacking Matt Bevin and declaring war on conservatives,” the Senate Conservatives Fund’s Matt Hoskins said in the Times’ Saturday story.
See, Mitch and his cohorts, they don’t care to stop the train from crashing, as long as they have a comfortable car to ride in until it does.
Remember when your Democrat leaders said the tea party was an “astroturf” movement, created by the Republican Party to “stop progress”? Yeah, well that was bullshit. She was using proven leftist tactics to marginalize a group of people who are obviously not blind to the fact that both parties are spending America into literal oblivion.
How much time do you really think we have left? It’s not enough to cheer your “team” and curse the other guys. Have you, as a Democrat, ever called your representatives and told them to stop the insane spending?
How about this?
