“If I’m given the opportunity to lead the United States Senate next year, I won’t let you down. I will lead with integrity, we will fight tooth and nail for conservative reforms that put this country back on track, we will debate our ideas openly, we will vote without fear, and we will govern with the understanding that the future of this country depends on our success.” [Mitch McConnell at CPAC 2014]
“I won’t let you down?” Anybody else get the impression that Mitch McConnell accidentally wandered into CPAC last week thinking he was at a Democrat National Committee meeting?
Either that, or McConnell thinks we Conservatives are as stupid as Obama voters.
Although, it could just be that in the excitement of knowing he would make the news for carrying a gun, McConnell got so flustered he misspoke.
Perhaps what he meant to say was, “I will lead the Establishment. We will fight tooth and nail against the conservatives who want to put this country back on track; we will avoid debating entirely, and we will vote like scared rabbits. We will govern with the understanding that the future of our permanent political aristocracy depends on our being mealy-mouthed cowards and crushing any Tea Party opposition that might come along.”
I’m relatively certain that my version is more akin to what Yertle the Turtle really believes. Because this is what McConnell told the New York Times just this past weekend when discussing Tea Party primary challengers:
“I think we are going to crush them everywhere. I don’t think they are going to have a single nominee anywhere in the country.”
So, in other words, no sooner does this quisling bastard tell conservatives he won’t let them down, than he lets them down.
But he always lets us down, doesn’t he?
So, sure, he can act like Lucy holding the football for the umpteenth time. But unfortunately for McConnell, we Conservatives aren’t a bunch of Charlie Browns.
We’re not falling for it again, Mitch.
I don’t care if you show up at CPAC carrying an AR-15, three hand-grenades and throwing stars.
You are not a conservative.
You are barely a Republican.
And you’ve been in Congress far too long.
Hey, Kentucky. Do me a favor. Vote for Tea Party Conservative Matt Bevin in the Republican primary and make McConnell eat those words.
What a slimy bastard.
Meanwhile, over in the House, John Boehner who is Speaker only because of the Tea Party, continues to live in the alternative universe where America is doing so well that all Congress should focus on is giving a bunch of illegal aliens amnesty.
Meanwhile, the least popular Senator in America is none other than the decrepit old crank from Arizona, the always “moderate” John McCain. Who, by the way, after Ted Cruz remarked in his CPAC speech that we all remember President Dole, got so angry at Cruz, he demanded that he apologize to Bob Dole.
For what? Pointing out that when the GOP nominates mush-mouthed moderates like McCain and Dole we lose?
Hate to break it to you, Senator McCain, but Ted Cruz shouldn’t have to apologize for speaking the truth.
McCain, McConnell, Boehner, Graham. These guys spend more time fighting Ted Cruz than they have ever spent fighting Liberal Democrats.
If only these assholes could get that fired up over the people who are actually destroying our nation.
Ted is a cruise missile. These guys are nothing but duds.
Isn’t it time to get rid of the Dud Dynasty?
How much more are we willing to endure from these morons?
While the Democrats lay down cover fire to protect Obama’s ass over the IRS scandal, the Obamacare debacle, Benghazi, our foreign policy mess, and our failing economy, these idiots in the GOP Establishment focus all their energy attacking Tea Party conservatives.
Hey, we’re not the ones who are killing our economy, our healthcare system, our currency, our jobs, our savings. We’re not the ones who are using the IRS to harass and target the opposition.
Don’t you idiots in the GOP Establishment think it’s time to focus on the actual danger to our nation? Isn’t it time you fight the good fight with us instead of fighting us?
The bottom line is, you useless duds are part of the problem. You, like your Liberal Democrat buddies are destroying our nation.
Citizen legislators. That is at the very heart of our Constitutional system.
They go to DC for a short time. Serve in office. Then go home and go back to their regular lives.
But that isn’t what we have today.
Today we have entrenched parasites who feed off the life-blood of our nation. They live fat and happy while they get rich off of elected office.
These leeches are draining us dry.
And when we have the gall to actually run against them, they act as if we’re committing treason.
For the John Boehners, John McCains, Lindsey Grahams and Mitch McConnells of Congress, “citizen legislators” are chumps.
Congress is a means to an end. It is a get-rich quick scheme.
Sure, they’ll show up at CPAC or a Tea Party event and make grand pronouncements of “fighting for conservatism.” But at the end of the day, all they are fighting for is their own sorry asses.
These men are no citizen legislators; they’re plantar warts.
These duds are the entrenched permanent political aristocracy.
They will not go quietly.
But they have to go.
It is time to get rid of the Dud Dynasty.
It is time to return to our Constitutional system of government where temporary politicians serve at the consent of the governed, not in spite of the governed.
Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, John McCain, Lindsey Graham and their ilk have worn out their welcome.
They no longer serve the people.
They expect us to serve them. To shut up, offer no opposition, reelect them, and let them stab us in the back term after term, after miserable term.
Isn’t it time the Dud Dynasty came to an end?
