    Mitch McConnell draws a line in the sand for the Tea Party « Hot Air

    Mitch finally is telling the TP leaders to SHUT UP! Now the TP will go after him with a vengeance. Yup, they will push another loon through the Primaries and the Dems will pick up another seat.

    This script is playing out again and again.

    Kentucky remains a Border State and as such is neither red nor blue. It will be interesting if the radical TP is able to defeat McConnell and then lose the general election to a moderate - maybe a blue dog - Democrat.

    Agreed...It seems the TP is determined to make the GOP another "also ran" party. Maybe Mitch will begin a movement to stop this seemingly never ending story.

    Act 1- TP dislikes GOP person because is not not conservative enough

    Act 2- TP pushes and gets nominated a far right TP candidate in primaries

    Act 3- The Dem, who wouldhave lost to a moderate Repub beats the TP loon in the General.

    I mean, you don't have to be a Rocket Scientist to figure this one out. Look at Virginia. The moderate Lt Governor Bolling could have won, but the TP pushed the Cooooch through the primary.....:cuckoo:

    I would like to see the size and scope of government reduced in all areas.
    McConnell has shown little interest or effectiveness along these lines.
    As the TP shows signs of shifting from economic conservatism toward radical social authoritarianism, I personally could care less which emerges victorious. Either way the country loses.

    Idiots.

    Remember 2010? The worst ass-kicking in Congressional History? Remember who put that ass-kicking on dimocrap scum?

    The Tea Party.

    Know why the Tea Party was ineffective in 2012? The illegal and criminal use of the IRS to illegally and criminally harass them.

    Big mistake. They'll be back stronger than ever next year.

    Count on it.

    Republicans take another 25 seats in the House and between 12 and 15 Senate Seats.

    The end of obama's presidency.

    dimocrap scum are shitting bricks everywhere.

    All 15 dimocrap senators that are up for re-election made a deal with the scumbag in chief yesterday. They're scared shitless. The deal is that they can criticize obamacare but that they won't call for a delay. LOSERS!!

    There are five (5) more dimocrap scum that are retiring and one (1) appointee position is up for grabs.

    Twenty-One (21) dimocrap seats in all. dimocraps will EASILY lose between 12 and 15 of those spots.

    The tide of the TeaPoCrappic impulse is over.

    2010 was then and won't ever come again, and now is the time for the GOP to put the TeaPoCraps down.

    It is a matter of survival. Either they shed the TP loony toons or they watch the Dems win national races. Karl Rover has put together a huge war chest to battle the Baggers. Let's see what happens.

    The GOP is wising up to the Dem crap lines. They have done some serious homework on what works and how to counter it. The "Tea party Nutjob" line won't work anymore. How do you call someone in favor of individual choice, lower taxes and less regulation a nutjob? The opposite is the case.
