Read this one! I promise you will not be sorry!

I love how all the kool-aid-drinking so-called Republicans like to claim the Tea Party lost the senate races for us and they ignore Rove and company won TWO races while the Tea Party won many more - and a lot of them thanks to Palin... people like Ayoette is in the senate thanks to Palin (though she seems to think it was McCain??)

It's about time McConnell stood up to somebody because he sure as Hell doesn't stand up to Reid.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

The Tea Party is representative about what republicans are supposed to be, and why they got elected in the first place. During election cycles, we receive countless emails, phone calls, and letters from republicans who stress the word 'conservative' in every other paragraph.

McConnell is going after the kinds of people he was elected to be. I hope he falls hard!

it really does, you know. It really does get to the critical point where you have to wonder who these people are working for.
 
The majority of so called 'Republicans' hate us. They wolrship the state the 'government' more than they respect people. It is always the same.

If the GOP Establishment were smart (and yes, if pigs could fly...) they would join forces with Tea Party organizations and map out a strategy to coordinate efforts during the 2014 election campaign. Such an effort would necessitate compromise on both sides, which as a practical matter means the GOP leadership would have to accept the necessity of some primary challenges to a few Republican incumbents, in exchange for, perhaps, a rhetorical cease-fire and an agreement to work together on a broad-based message.   

But alas, the Stupid Party would rather alienate its own base by essentially agreeing with the Democrat/Media anti-Tea Party campaign.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

and when you put this into perspective it makes you wonder if McConnell is a)senile or b) wants to remain in the minority because the Tea Party he, and others like McCain and Graham, love to denigrate in 2010 was responsible for the biggest GOP sweep around the entire nation in 100 years.  People love to concentrate on the whipping boys Akin and Murdock, but ignore that Maine went red, NH went red, Wisconsin elected Republicans, etc....

The inside the beltway crowd (both parties) see the TEA party movement as the greatest threat around to their little game and will do ANYTHING to protect it from them! ANYTHING!

The overall "Tea Party" movement is seen by many as a loose cannon. You don't know what might happen next.

Big business is interested in having a voice in tax and other major policies. If they fear that the GOP candidate is going to step in his own poop, like several Tea Party types HAVE done, they shy away.

BTW the people at the top of the various TP entities ARE skimming advertising, fund raising consulting fees, just like Rove does. I would not be surprised if DeMint does that, too.

The TP support is narrow, something of a fad, to set the followers apart as being different, noteworthy.

They disappeared for the 2012 elections. Their recent approval is down substantially. Study the polls.

I've been admonished they couldn't operate effectively in 2012, because their IRS tax exempt status was delayed. Then what the hell did they do in 2010 when they were so effective?

It's really simple at the end of the day!

Either you are part of the solution or you're part of the problem!  The GOPe is definitely part of the problem!

TEA party support may be "narrow" where you are but I'll assure you that is NOT the case in large chunks of this country! Most folks I know are sick to death of the establishment peeing down their leg and telling then it's raining!

Their "narrow" support gave the GOP a landslide across the country in 2010... so if that is a loose cannon - give me more!  and BTW you are on this board daily, so you are not living under a rock and thus low information - so I KNOW you know the reason the TP was not more active in 2012 had more to do with the IRS not issuing their 501(c) than anything else....... I realize you think the GOPe is a great thing, more of us do not and are sick of business as usual in Washington, DC.

The Tea party Senate candidates in 2012 were a bust, just as they were in 2010.  They thought they were still preaching to the choir when Murdock and Akins made their ridiculous statements about rape, but, alas, it was the general election. 

This article is a perfect example of Breitbart's disingenuousness.  McConnell doesn't trash the Tea Party, but does comment that some of its tactics are misguided.  The obviously are; Cruz and Lee took the Republican brand to the basement with their dopey shutdown strategy.

The Tea Party seems to be focused on defeating Republicans.   I'd rather focus on Democrats.  We've got them in a vise right now, and the scumbag Bevins is more interested in trashing McConnell than in making sure Allison Grimes goes down.

What freaking planet have you been living on?????????  Certainly not our planet.

I don't know about Sinkspur but on my planet you proved Sinkspur correct with your quote from Breitbart.

Sinkspur said The majority of the American public DOES NOT favor repeal of Obamacare..
and you quoted a CBS poll that states 43% favor repeal.

43% is not a majority.
