What if the tea party decides to
walk away from the GOP in 2016?
It could happen

Washington Post, by Chris Cilliza

Original Article

Posted By:quantumman, 4/26/2014 1:14:42 PM

The relationship (or lack thereof) between the mainstream of the Republican party and the tea party has long been pooh-poohed by GOP strategists as standard operating procedure for a party out of the White House. The base and the establishment feud and, in the end, the base falls in line, they argue. But what if the tea party movement represents something new -- and less manageable -- for the establishment heading into the 2016 presidential race?

Wishful thinking by a first order magnitude DBM Lib. They are hoping the Pubbies will self destruct and forget Zippy and Obamacare in 2014 and 2016. Not!

The Tea Party are not slaves to the GOP plantation. The GOP will follow the Tea Party wherever they decide to go. You couldn´t run the GOP away from the Tea Party with a bulldozer.

Watch and learn black democratic conservatives.

It has already started - How many million conservatives didn´t vote in 2012? How many won´t for Jeb Bush or Chris Christie?

Personally, I´ve already changed my voter registration, and I´m sick of the choice of Democrat or Democrat lite. I´ve sucked it up twice and I´m not likely to do it again.

You have to wonder what is wrong with the GOPe. In the case of the Dems, they just want to get along with them. But in the case of the Tea Party, the people who gave them the House, they want to destroy/reject it. Seems there is a serious mental illness in the GOPe that keeps them from seeing the reality of things. Not good for the future.

This Tea Party/912 Project guy walked away from the GOP many years ago. Political "teams" are for shallow thinkers; the GOP stands for nothing and has no bedrock principles. Embracing a candidate because he or she has an (R) next to their name is absurd.

The more people who stop playing the partisan game the faster we can begin to fix this mess.

Typical Leftist argument, full of lies, deceptions, and propaganda. It is no wonder no one understands the TEA party. All emotion? Radical? Taxed Enough Already is emotion and radical? Oh, and the Racism thing, the TEA Party is racist and only exists because of President Obama. If you believe ANY of that you are part of the problem. and, most likely, you are a Moderate who supported John McCain and Mitt Romney, who both lost.

If we haven´t learned anything from the last two elections, we will lose. If we figured out what the problem is and will fix it, we will win. It´s that simple. Tea Partiers, Christian Conservatives and a lot of Independents stayed home during the past two presidential elections. They didn´t like what they saw as Republican Candidates. They couldn´t abide voting for Obama, so they sat it out. This time around, hopefully, EVERYONE knows the only way to save this country after Obama has come close to destroying it, is to elect a CONSERVATIVE Republican. If we elect a CONSERVATIVE Senate and President, we might be able to set things right. First order of business is to throw out all of the Moderates from a Cabinet Seat. That includes Boehner and McConnell. Fire most of the IRS employees and most of the Attorneys in Eric Holder office. Audit, and fire, any government employee who used a Government Credit card for personal business. Fire any IRS or other government employee who hasn´t paid their taxes. Repeal any subsidies given to members of congress and their staffs for their insurance. They can pay what the rest of us pay! Then, lets get to work! Repeal Obamacare! Disband the EPA. Disband the Bureau of Land management. The government shouldn´t be in the business of rounding up cattle. I would like to see either Ted Cruz or Scott Walker running the country because I don´t think they fear anyone! They actually love this country and want to take it back to where it was before Obama. Chris Cilliza WISHES Republicans will lose, but they will win and it will be big and democrats all over Washington will be running for cover! Lots of Investigating to do. Start with Lois Learner and Harry Reid!

Howzabout stipulating to the following:

1. Jeb Bush can sit in the passenger seat for VP.

2. The primary is devoted to legitimate discussion of issues.. i.e. no Rovian smear tactics, negative ops, planted stories, push polling, etc. Just legitimate debate among Ryan, Walker, Jindal, Pence, DeMint, Cruz, Christie, Martinez and she whose name we dare not speak at the risk offending the half dozen white board rockefeller republicans embedded herein. Most articulate issues and ideas candidate wins.

The argument "since the enemy of my enemy is my friend argument usually wins out in presidential contests" will NOT win out in 2016. If Jeb Bush or Chris Christie are on the ticket they will lose my vote and millions more. To have a Bush on the ticket is completely Un-American.

Comment is happy talk while whistling past the graveyard. The walk away is already in progress, given the ever increasing number of TP challenges to the republicrats, whose only interest is their bottom line. A republican conservative; conjures up a Unicorn or a square circle; none of whom exist. Simply, its a fight over traditional principle vs compulsive political expediency exemplified by failures such as the Bushes, Romney, Boehner, Cantor, McConnell and all the rest of them.

The simple answer to the headline . . . the RINO establishment would be very happy to have cleansed the party of the unwashed heathens and surprised that they lost the ´16 election because very few voted for their anointed candidate . . . sort of like replays of Dole, H.W. Bush, McCain and Romney.

When you have the Republican leadership like Boehner who is not endearing himself to the conservative base, indeed he sucks up more to Dems than to us. When we see no direction, no pushback to the lawless actions of our president, we hear nothing for which we stand - what exactly are we to support in the GOP except traditionally, that´s the way we vote? Well, some of us are saying that´s not good enough. If we have to walk away to make a point - so be it. We aren´t winning anything that matters anyway. For the record - I have never NOT voted in the past 30 years, primaries included, and almost always have voted Republican or conservative. But yeah - I´m getting weary of the GOP in general.

#2 hit the nail on the head! But as Hillary says "Does it matter" since it already appears that the Establishment Republicans would be happy to control the Congress, and that´s a long shot, while forfeiting the Presidency again by putting up the next RINO in line. Why vote for a Democrat lite when you can vote for a real Democrat?

They seem to be politically dumb or naive enough to do so. But, on the other hand, if God wills it otherwise he can always have a trump blown and spirit go cross the land?

We can´t fear and worry about everything and everyone´s poor choices especially the unmovable ones, the only heaven bound and proud of it? IOW to touch people´s hearts and minds it often takes more than just two democrat-socialist terms and two Ross Perot affected elections.

The Tea Party cannot win and force the right wing fundamentalist Christian agenda but they can give the election to the democrat party with a less that 50% majority vote again. Their choice--in their hands-and thankfully God´s.

If we are subjected to a RINO candidate in 2016, watch for Rand Paul to run as a modified Libertarian. He could win as a third party candidate.

He is reaching out to the youth who put Obama in office. He reaches out to the Tea Party and he is appealing to disaffected Dems.

The Establishment better start paying attention because real Americans have had enough!

Romney received 4 million less votes than McCain.

I have always thought that McCain´s vote total was inflated because Sara Palin was so popular with Conservatives, especially those who would later become Tee Party members

Palin´s enduring popularity among committed conservative is something that the RINOs are in denial over.

I´m certain the GOP nominee will be Christie or Bush and if that is so, we´ll loose in 2016 by a bigger margin than Romney did in 2012.

However, I for one will not sit out either of the next two elections.

I will either be working very hard to elect Conservative candidates or I will be voting a straight Democrap ticket depending on who the GOP nominees are.

If the GOP really wanted to win the WH in 2016, they would insure the ticket consisted of Palin, Cruz or Lee and one other conservative and make damn certain that Christie/Bush/Ryan/et al are not on the ticket.

Yes I know. Wishful thinking........

I fear that we will not get rid of the GOPee RINO Pizz Heads until Most of America is so disgusted with Democraps in general and GOP leadership in particular that they vote McConnell, The Bonner, Cantor, McCarthy and their ilk out of office and replace them with Conservative Men and Women who have back bones and who will stand up on the back feet and fight like real Americans!


I´m afraid it will take many more years of Democrap control of the Senate and WH for America to get to that point.

I think McConnell´s scalp might be enough Senatorial Crap that gets flushed down the toilette to get the remaining RINOs to man-up a little and work with, and not against, Cruz and Lee et al.

And so it begins.....again. Just gonna stay home because we can´t vote for "rino"s. How´d 2012 work out for all the "true" believers? Clue: obama WON four more years, the IRS, kept the Senate, chuck hagel, john kerry, the muslin brotherhood, susan rice, samantha powell, and too many others to name, and they are busily working to destroy what is left of this country. What an accomplishment! Guess some would rather win the "battle" but this country will surely LOSE the WAR! Unbelievably unproductive and most of all Depressing. God help the U.S.

I understand this isn´t the popular sentiment among the stay-home-if-my-fave-isn´t-nominated crowd, but our worst Republican is far better than the best of the Democrats. Our nation will not survive another Dem White House term in 2016. Do you care? It´ll be cold comfort wrapped in the lesson you believe you taught the country if there is no longer a country at all.

I´m interested in the people who won´t vote for any ticket but a Palin/Cruz ticket, or a Cruz/Palin ticket. Would Mike Pence, my favorite, be acceptable? Scott Walker, maybe? Bobby Jindal, in a pinch? Or does it absolutely have to be the one person whom we know absolutely isn´t going to run?

This article is so full of spin it is difficult to know where to start. The RINO establishment is the tail wagging the tea party dog. By that I mean there is a lot more energy and people in the tea party. They generate the votes and the energy and yet they have no representation. This situation cannot continue. Even the horror of electing democrats cannot hold back the forces demanding a change in the GOP. The RINO establishment is in the game for themselves but the TEA party are the real patriots trying to save the country. So many young men gave their lives for the sake of the country but not so that a few crony capitalists could make themselves the only alternative to the horribly destructive RATS. This has to stop, it WILL stop. RINO´s should show the RATS some good example and put the country first ahead of their own selfish goals.

You are correct. I stand corrected. Thank you.

Amazing how such an important factoid can be so incorrectly reported and then the correction so much ignored.

Sheds quite a different light on Wilard´s relationship with the electorate and it was Obama who lost almost 4 million votes 2008 vs 2012, 69.4M vs 65.9. = 3.5M down vs Romney´s 1 M up!

Again, thank you for the correction.

For the usual suspects, it´s an article of blind (and embarrassingly dumb) belief that R´s = good and D´s = bad; a mantra reeking of self righteous sanctimony and beyond preposterous. Yet this is the predictable cant of those w/zero perspective on history or any grasp of economics. Two egregious R examples suffice.
1.)The incubus for the New Deal was put in place by Hoover who collectivized more than half of the farming industry during his term, when Agriculture was still 40% of our GDP! Then FDR and his WS cronies, simply advanced their statist agenda, using Hoover´s template.
2.)That George the Compassionate was arguably the most incompetent R, ever to sit in the WH, is increasingly the judgement of history. Leaving aside his colossal recklessness on the debt, deficit, unfunded mandates massively expanding big govt, etc; his bailout of the auto and banking industries, thereby rewarding failure, is right out of the early pages of Marx´s Das Kapital; viz, force state control of the factors of production and then redistribute wealth based on need; precisely what Obama is attempting!!!
Reflective posters who know economics and history; grasp in their bones that the GOP is beyond redemption and little more than an entity where assorted frauds and hustlers congregate. It´s purpose and time is long gone. Of course our harridan contingent, obtuse to reality, won´t hear a discouraging word. Their idea of change for the better, is the likes of Willard, again, in a dank blue pinstripe w/loafers. Can´t let all that breeding go to waste. Why of course!

It´s not that the Worst-Puby is better than Any-Donkey in the WH.

It´s that no RINO will win the WH, so why vote for him/her.

I´d rather vote for the Donkey in 2016 and help give one hell of a Face Slap to the French RINO GOP leadership.

IE. A loss of 10% or 15% and 400+ Electoral Votes instead of 2% or 3% and 325+ Electoral Votes.

Neither The Bonners/McConnells/Christies nor Bushes will stop the Reids/Polosis/Obamas/Clintons or Warrens from elevating Marx to replace George Washington!

I wont waste my vote on a Damned RINO again!


I´ll fully support and vote for any reasonably good Conservative for POTUS but refuse to support the likes of Christie/Bush/Ryan or any other amnesty supporter.

If ever elected, a Christie/Bush/Ryan type would so disillusion and alienate so many Conservatives that the Donkeys would dominate national politics until the RINOs faded away.

If McCain had won in 2008, do you really think he would have been reelected as the politician we now know him to be and then how many years would the GOP be locked out of the WH!

It´s the GOP RINOs that must change. Not me or other Conservatives or Tee Party Members.

The whole premise that the Tee Party is causing a rupture within the GOP is WRONG!

It´s the RINO Jerk-Wards in power who are WRONG and giving us another Dole or McCain in the form of Christie or Bush or a reinvented Romney aint going to bring the bacon home!

I have voted GOP since Goldwater and from then on through the Good, the Poor, and the Pizz Poor candidates.

Never again! Never ever again!


PS: Romney wasn´t so bad but he´s now tainted and won´t fly again nationally.

For those of you who keep commenting that it´s better to have lame Republican in the White House than no Republican at all.. I live by something called principles. And I will fight to the bitter end to defend those principles. Thus I WILL stay home on election, rather than vote for a RINO or a poor choice that is no better than a libtard or Dimocrat.

I will not vote for RINOs, nor will I vote for these fake posers like Marco Rubio the illegal alien apologist, or Sarah Palin the hokey goofball "Mama Grizzly", or Rand Pandering Paul.

I will vote for principled conservative men like Ted Cruz, or Ben Carson if he decides to run.

If these elitists in the Republican party are allowed to continue to steer the party with their bad decisions, they can do it without me.

Kissing babies, flipping pancakes at some stupd event, pandering to a bunch of non-white racists because of their skin color, or pretending that you´re just one of the guys while you have a silver spoon dangling out of your mouth is not going to get any Republican elected. Only when you stand up like a true statesman and give a straight-forward explanation of conservatism and the values there-in will you gain votes.

Time after time, President Obama has reportedly learned of a number of big administration scandals in the media, from the IRS to Fast & Furious and now the VA scandal over wait times and veterans dying before receiving proper treatment (Jay Carney said today the president learned about this scandal through media reports). All this apparent unawareness before the fact led Charles Krauthammer to argue on Special Report today that Obama acts like he “stumbled upon the presidency” only to be shocked by how much wrong there really is. He lightly mocked the idea that Obama is “madder than hell”

Of the big three networks, only the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley covered the new revelations in the VA scandal.

After the full House of Representatives cited former Internal Revenue Service (IRS) official Lois G.

If the Post had buried the story any deeper, it would have been wedged into the classifieds or crumpled up in a backyard mulch barrel.

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush said he would strive to be like Lyndon Johnson, the Democrat famous for expanding the U.S. welfare state through the "Great Society," if he were elected president. According to the Miami Herald, Bush made those comments Wednesday night in San Antonio, Florida at Saint Leo University, while speaking about education, immigration, and energy policy.

NBA commissioner Adam Silver has pledged to pursue the ouster of disgraced Clippers owner Donald Sterling, who was caught on tape last month making a series of racist remarks and then attacked Lakers legend Magic Johnson in a nationally televised interview this week. However, the timing of Sterling’s departure remains unclear, and Shelly Sterling, Donald Sterling’s wife, has vowed to “fight” to keep her ownership stake in the team. One way or another, the National Basketball Players Association has made it clear they want both Sterlings removed by the start of the 2014-15 season, and one of the players union’s

When Barack Obama was running for the presidency, there were a number of people who warned he wasn’t ready for prime time – that he’d never really “done anything or run anything”. That he had never demonstrated any penchant for leadership at any time in his life, nor had he ever had any executive experience. That most of his adult life had been political campaigns for the next highest office – moving directly from one to the next with few if any accomplishments in-between.

Will the House arrest Lois Lerner?

The House has held Lois Lerner in contempt, but it won’t use its power to place the former IRS official under arrest, Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said on Sunday. Under a precedent affirmed by the Supreme Court, each chamber of Congress can authorize its sergeant-at-arms to detain individuals it holds in contempt. But Boehner said on "Fox News Sunday" that he has no interest in doing that with Lerner, whom the House last week voted to hold in contempt over her refusal to testify about her role in the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups. “I’m not sure we want to go down that path,” Boehner said. “It’s never been used,” he said of the

An international team of researchers has created the most complete visual simulation of how the Universe evolved. The computer model shows how the first galaxies formed around clumps of a mysterious, invisible substance called dark matter. It is the first time that the Universe has been modelled so extensively and to such great resolution. The research has been published in the journal Nature. Now we can get to grips with how stars and galaxies form and relate it to dark matter”, Prof Richard Ellis Caltech. The simulation will provide a test bed for emerging theories of what the Universe is

WASHINGTON - As the United States attempts to punish Russia for its actions in Ukraine, the Treasury Department is deploying an economic weapon that could prove more costly than sanctions: the Internal Revenue Service. This summer, the U.S. plans to start using a new law that will make it more expensive for Russian banks to do business in America. "It´s a huge deal," says Mark E. Matthews, a former IRS deputy commissioner. "It would throw enormous uncertainty into the Russian banking community."

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters.

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it. “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News. Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
