Mitch McConnell on beating tea party: ‘We are going to crush them’

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell vowed any tea party candidates challenging establishment Republicans in the 2014 midterm elections would not just fail — but fail miserably.

“I think we are going to crush them everywhere,” he said, The New York Times reported, “I don’t think they are going to have a single nominee anywhere in the country.”

Mr. McConnell faces concerted challenge himself, most notably from a Kentuckian named Matt Bevin, a businessman who’s branded himself a true conservative, The Blaze reported.

    TEA Partiers are simply the bread and butter Americans. We desire a return to Constitutional Government and that is anthemia to All entrenched congressionals. Mister McConnell is a part of the entrenched politicos. He is not conservative or Republican or Democrat. He is a Problem like Boehner and the rest of the go along to get along contingent who forget their place. Of course the TEA Partiers are a danger to them. Ideas like other weapons can inflict serious setbacks to their agenda which is usually not of the people for the people.

    The Tea Party really is a third party. They should never have tried to “shoehorn” themselves into the GOP in the first place. I think that was a GOP decision years ago, and now it’s come back to haunt them.

      Yeah…..the Tea Party is really the Libertarian Party masquerading as Republicans. They would have never come to power if it wasn’t for the Republicans they call “Rhinos”.

  • CTH says:

    McConnell, and other so called party leaders, is a damn old fool and has been one for a very long time. It is past time these pseudo republicans are turned out to pasture

  • PALADIN says:

    PLEASE send whatever amount you can to Matt Bevin’s campaign against McConnell in the primaries…..even if it’s just 5.00 dollars. If a million people just sent 5.00, that would be 5 million! I personally have already sent 50.00 and am about to send another 25.00 (Things are tight for me—I can’t send as much as I want) and I don’t even live in his state!! We need McConnell gone and Bevin is a strong conservative. And DO NOT send to the nrc,nrsc, etc. because they will support candidates of THEIR choosing…not yours. Send directly to the campaigns of YOUR chosen candidates.

    i’d like to see A Paul Ryan, Ted Cruz team for the next presidential race.

  • MARYANN33 says:

    well, then we clearly see the Republicans problem is the Republicans themselves…They are not Republicans at all, the Tea Party is our true Republicans and we don’t want to vote for these old grandpas anymore…We need the Tea Party to take over the Republican party or the country is done for.

    The only way he would crush the Tea Party is if he already knows that the voting machines are already rigged for his win like Obummers were.

  • floramae says:

    He’s not only getting desperate,we can now add stupidity

  • John Henry says:

    McConnell must have stopped in Denver and picked up some wackyweed … because he would have to either be high or delusional to think that you can win by eliminating your base.

    Most Tea Party voters are INDEPENDENTS … if we stay away from the poles the Democrats will win, and McConnell and other Republicans will loose their seats.

    So … why do these elitists in the GOP leadership keep up this stuff, certainly they must have learned something at last weekend CPAC.

    1. Steve Wykle says:

      I couldn’t disagree more. I believe most Tea Party followers are really Libertarians, not Independents. If you look up the basic tenets of the Libertarian Party and compare them to the Tea Party, they are one in the same. They may say they are Independents, but that can’t be further from the truth.

    Mitch would be like a player on a football team that didn’t like the quarterback and instead blocking for him turns and tackles him and then complains he’s completing any passes.
