    I predicted this in 2010.

    The Tea Party was merely a "holding tank" for Republicans which gave them a place to hide from the abject economic failure at the end of the Bush administration. They herded righties into a safe house called the Tea Party. Ron Paul started it as a largely anti TARP Libertarian group, and Fox News promoted it as part of the GOP's grand rebranding effort.

    Righties sucked it up and hid there, till now.

    The Tea Partiers are being shot and kicked in the ditch politically because they've completely saddled Obama with everything wrong in the universe, and now they are of no use. Hitler did the same with his brown shirts.

    This was all preplanned

    Which is exactly why Trey Gowdy called GOP voters stupid after the last election. Even after they were told by no less that their MessiahRushie after the Cochran primary that the GOP was just using them and if the GOP kept the House and took the Senate it would be seen as confirming Boner's plan to keep as many in the Tea Bag Brotherhood off the ballot as possible as the best way to win in 2014. Yet the idiots still voted GOP rather than stay away and defeat Boner's plan, and now Boner was rewarded for his successful plan.
    SUCKERS!

    RUSH:
    They can't believe at TheHill.com that anybody would challenge Boehner.
    And do you know why? Do you know why they can't believe that? Because if you read -- you don't have to go very far -- halfway into the story you find out at TheHill.com it is John Boehner who gets credit for all of the new House Republican seats. I kid you not. It is the most amazing thing. And these people think that they are a cut above, they're smarter than everybody else. This is their business, not ours. They know it; we don't. They're sitting in there and they're writing -- and TheHill.com is typical. It's not an outlier. They really think, why would these Tea Party types, why would these Republicans be upset with Boehner? Why, he just led to unprecedented victory for Republicans in the House.

    RUSH: Yeah, they [the GOP] make a play at party unity, but as you say, it's a one-way street. They will not in any way, shape, manner, or form support a Tea Party idea or candidate. But they want the Tea Party to think so. This is the great trick that they're trying to perpetrate here. The establishment wants the Tea Party, even after this debacle in Mississippi, to think that they're in support in some ways.

    November 03, 2014
    RUSH: They've [the GOP] attempted to diminish and impugn the Tea Party to the point now we've got a Politico story, which says that the real thing the Republicans are gonna celebrate if they take the Senate is not taking the Senate but vanquishing the idea that the Tea Party is needed for Republicans to win.

    January 06, 2015
    RUSH: The Republican Party is doing everything it can to dismantle its own base, as identified by the Tea Party. It's doing everything it can to impugn them, to join the Democrats in mocking and making fun and to render their base, their own base impotent
