    And it begins.

    Hatch’s had enough from groups tied to tea party


    Sen. Orrin Hatch and his campaign team have heard enough from their most vocal critics and are fighting back, lambasting the leaders of FreedomWorks and the Club for Growth as hypocrites and political has-beens struggling to remain relevant.


    The groups counter that Hatch’s broadside is "a sign of weakness" and an attempt to shift the conversation away from past votes that may derail his 2012 re-election bid.


    This spat comes at a time when Hatch has no declared challenger but still has faced repeated criticisms from these tea party-affiliated groups, which argue that he is not conservative enough, a campaign reminiscent of the way they attacked former Utah Sen. Bob Bennett in 2010.


    Their latest jabs focus on the debt-limit debate that consumed Washington in recent weeks. FreedomWorks created mailers and the Club released a television ad slamming Hatch for repeatedly voting to increase the amount of money the nation can borrow, which he has supported 16 times since joining the Senate in 1977.


    But Hatch’s staffers, led by campaign manager Dave Hansen, say they won’t lie back and take such attacks, particularly from people who have long voting records of their own. FreedomWorks Chairman Dick Armey voted at least twice to raise the debt ceiling as a former House majority leader, and Club for Growth President Chris Chocola did so three times as a congressman from Indiana.


    Hansen called them "extremely hypocritical," and he didn’t stop there.


    "In the case of Dick Armey, this is a retired congressman from somewhere in Texas who is trying to remain significant in the political realm," he said. "And with Chris Chocola, here is a guy who is a defeated congressman from Indiana. They are just trying to do what they can to promote their outside interests."

    It was only a matter of time before the teabaggers were thrown under the bus. Their usefulness is coming to an end, and are now seen as a liability and a threat to future power.

    LOL, of course he doesn't. They are going after him NEXT.

    Unlike you cultist Democrat voters who will vote in any and all crooks, cheats, liars, adulterers, career politicians as long as they have a D next to their name. The Tea Party is going after BOTH PARTIES..

    tsk tsk for Hatch.

    How friggen funny we are now seeing the left fweeeel sorry for Republicans...and how bout that last statement.

    that my friends is what Liberals really CARE ABOUT.

    The teabaggers are a threat to future GOP power, not Democrats. The country has woken up and seen them for the extremist fringe that they are.

    Watch for more of these establishment Republicans distancing themselves and criticizing the teabaggers.

    Hatch has done very well representing the Country Club Community and crushing opposition to Oligarchy rule, over the years. Seems every time momentum builds on anything that can bring real positive change, he is there throwing water on the BBQ coals defending the status quo. His handlers should be very proud of him. I'm sure he is worth every penny. ;)

    They will never understand.

    But it's funny as hell to see a lefty desperately praying for the demise of the TEAs while saying they don't fear the TEAs. If they don't fear the TEAs, why worry about it? Why keep trying to demonize them?

    :lol: Yep, they scared.

    The republican party created this monster and now they are paying the price.

    They will be decades shaking off this distructiuve base.

    As long as Alies and Fox live in their current form the tea party will rule the republican party.

    It will be taking a WHOLE passel of election cheating to win elections for them from now on.

    75% of this country wants a constitutional balanced budget amendment and it is not just the tea party.
    The silent majority of voters created the tea party, not the republicans.
    You don't have to be part of the tea party to have the basic points of view.
    Smaller more controllable government and a balanced budget is the majority of the voters views.
    You don't need to cheat when it is the majority of voters.

    I couldn't agree more. Hatch is one of the sleaziest members of the Senate, and that's saying something. He has insinuated himself into every movement that has come along, from Reagan to the Moral Majority to the 'Contract For America' to Impeachment to Pro-War to "Ownership Society" to 'Credit Card Government' to TARP. He has no core beliefs and is a major tool of the establishment and the Mormon Church. But Tea Party is too crazy for him and his long record. It's not a good match.
