GOP puts its tea party
´civil war´ behind it

Los Angeles Times, by Doyle McManus

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 5/21/2014 10:14:16 AM

Sen. Mitch McConnell´s easy victory over his tea party opponent in Kentucky´s Republican primary Tuesday presents a tidy storyline: the establishment strikes back. In the primary season so far, McConnell and fellow GOP incumbents have successfully out-organized and outspent such challengers from their right. And yet even as they rack up wins, they are revealing how the tea party already won the battle for influence in the Republican Party. The GOP´s civil war now looks more like a merger: the establishment has moved right, and many of the tea party´s voters are rejoining/reconciling with that new mainstream — even if some of

If the result of the Tea Party Movement is that the entrenched Republicans wake the hell up, see what this leftist juggernaut is doing to our country and start paying attention to the people who put them there, it will have served it´s purpose.
These Country Club Repubs. better figure out they´re being watched very closely by their constituents and get the hell to work.

I am suspicious of anything the LAT writes, especially Doyle McManus.

But as Milton Friedman said "The way you solve things is by making it politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing."

Boy, does that describe Mitch McConnell´s situation.

I think many have just given up on the GOP. Regardless of a candidate being identified as Rhino Establishment or Tea Party it matters not. Action and results are no longer the criteria for evaluating and electing a candidate or incumbent. It seems to be more geared on optics and how well they speak and identify with special interest groups. Not to mention, how much money they have to spend on the campaign. America now has its own Oligarchy running the show. Engaging in the conversation at this time is proving to be ineffectual, boring and a bit tedious.

It´s not over until November. We´ll see what platform the establishment runs on; if they don´t offer specific solutions to our problems, encompassing conservative principles, then there is no reason to vote for them instead of the Dems.

I agree, #3. I don´t have the numbers to prove it, but we don´t seem to see the pre-Tea Party level of mealy-mouthed statements from GOP incumbents.

If the above is true, the head line might more properly read, "Tea Party puts is GOP ´civil war´ behind it".

Let me help the LAT. The TP put a shot across the bow of the RINO majority leader. He´d much prefer not having to campaign in a primary and save all his $$ for the general. That he won this round does not insure against future rounds with perhaps better contenders, the best strategy is to prevent the party base from wanting an alternative. We´ll see if he´s learned his lesson.

The republican party put me behind it and out of sight along with the tea party. They have fully confirmed that there is no political solution to the collapse of the United States. When the left and the "right" are both big government, big spending, big entitlement, central power, political elitists, then I have no reason to participate. What´s the point? No matter who I vote for I get the same crud. So goodbye republicrats. You finally pushed me out the door. Does anyone here actually think an insider elitist like Mitch is ever going to lurch to the right? His victory speech made me sick to my stomach.

If Kentucky voters want McConnell, it is their choice. If Georgia voters don´t want Karen Handel, that is their choice, too. There is nothing "lo-fo" or "idiot" involved. There are simply voters making their decisions. We don´t get to pick other states´ political representatives.

In GA: Handel had Sarah Palin´s endorsement, but she was grossly outmatched by Jack Kingston, who has been in Congress forever.

She did well.

I don´t consider Paul Broun terrible. GA had a huge slate, but somebody had to lose. Money, name recognition, power won.

TEA Party is playing it cool. Republican Party needs them, and they have no reason to merge without a dowry.

#16, would it be possible for you (or anyone) to provide some documentation for the statement that 4 million Tea Partiers stayed home in 2012 rather than vote for Romney? I see that figure quoted and thatclaim made quite often here at LCom, and I´d like to know if there´s any actual basis in the fact for it.

If it is true, then 4 million people are either abysmally stupid, or they´re in the pay of the Democratic Party.

Anyone who actually wants to further the conservative cause will drop usage of terms like "lo fo" and idiot when describing Republican voters. Kentucky isn´t as red as you think and it was Bevin´s to lose, which he did several months ago. He wasn´t a good candidate and he had little discipline. He never told anyone why they should vote for him, he just ran on not being McConnell. That´s not how you win a race. Best thing to do now is to get behind McConnell and make sure Grimes doesn´t win. McConnell polled far better than Bevin against her, but they are neck and neck

Read #20. The numbers are very embarrassing for someone of McConnell´s "stature." As to the Tea Party prevailing because it is causing incumbents to move right? I believe an assumption like that is extremely premature. It´s not what they say to get elected, it´s how they vote once elected and which group they align themselves with in the Senate. Republican candidates have fooled us many times before.

For most of 2014, the Democrats looked on the looming congressional elections with considerable dread. All of the standard indicators portend an unhappy outcome for their party.(snip) Then came last week’s Hobby Lobby ruling. In that imminently sensible Supreme Court decision, the Democrats found an unhoped-for opportunity for shameless demagoguery. Indulging their gift for Orwellian rhetoric, they declared that the Court had re-opened hostilities in the fabled “war on women.” (snip) Millions of American women, they thundered, will now be denied access to birth control because five male justices sided with the closet theocrats who own Hobby Lobby.

I’ve never had many charitable things to say about John Kerry, but now it’s worse; I feel sorry for him. Kerry certainly isn’t an evil fellow, merely a run-of-the-mill narcissistic opportunist who has risen to the top of the political heap. I admire his service in Vietnam; many children of privilege — did someone mention George W. Bush? — found ways to avoid the war. If he had any stellar accomplishments during his 28 years in the Senate, they are not etched in my memory. He proved to be an inept presidential candidate in 2004. But now, the spin goes,

I had just turned 22 and I had the self-esteem of a squashed toad. This may explain why I was having an affair with a married 36-year-old sound mixer whom I’d met on a film shoot a couple of months earlier. I’d had only one serious boyfriend by this time and recently had been asked for the first time, “Can I buy you a drink?” by a man. (He was an actor in a film I’d worked on the summer before; he asked everybody that question, but still it felt like progress.) Somehow, by that tender age, I had convinced myself

Now that the Supreme Court has issued its ruling in the Hobby Lobby case, the legal fight over the Affordable Care Act will shift a few blocks away to another Washington courtroom, where a far more fundamental challenge to Obamacare is about to be decided by the powerful U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. Indeed, if Hobby Lobby will create complications for Obamacare, Halbig vs. Burwell could trigger a full cardiac arrest. The Halbig case challenges the massive federal subsidies in the form of tax credits made available to people with financial need who enroll in the program. In crafting the act, Congress created incentives

This morning’s Supreme Court ruling in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby will doubtless precipitate a flood of stories from the establishment “news” media claiming that an entrenched cadre of conservative justices have dealt a grievous blow to the reproductive freedom of women and somehow endowed corporations with religious rights. These reports should be ignored as so much hysterical nonsense. What the Court actually said was that the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) requires the government to provide closely held corporate objectors to Obamacare’s contraception mandate the same accommodation it already provides nonprofit organizations.

Computer experts and Republican lawmakers are poking holes in IRS claims that the agency did all it could to retrieve embattled ex-official Lois Lerner´s allegedly "lost" emails, which the agency blames on a 2011 hard-drive crash. The email revelation already has prompted three congressional hearings -- with more likely to come -- as lawmakers grow more skeptical of the explanation and look for inconsistencies in the story. Among them, they point to a flurry of emails from mid-2011 between Lerner and the agency´s information technology team about the alleged computer failure which was attached to the agency´s mea culpa delivered to

Irritating phrases and words are not confined to political circles, or solely to Washington, although here in the nation’s capital they burrow in and proliferate like obsolete, but entrenched, government programs. This is a call to arms to fight them—but only metaphorically. 15: “WAR ON [FILL IN THE BLANK]” Syria’s civil war has produced 2.5 million refugees and a death toll of 160,000, a tragedy that has galvanized neither major political party into action.

I´m old enough to remember when American liberals cherished the freedom of speech guaranteed by the First Amendment. They celebrated especially the freedom accorded those with unpopular beliefs and protested attempts to squelch the expression of differing opinions. Today things are different. American liberals are not challenging the Supreme Court rulings extending First Amendment protection to nude dancers, flag burners and students wearing antiwar armbands. They are content to leave these as forms of protected free speech. But political speech is a whole other thing. Currently 43 Democratic senators are so-sponsoring the constitutional amendment introduced by New Mexico´s Sen. Tom Udall to amend

I spent a lot of 2008 feeling crushed. It was exhilarating covering Hillary Clinton’s historic run for the presidency, but there was so much about the race that was backward and retro, more 1958 than 2008. It wasn’t just the media’s goggle-eyed questions about whether the country was “ready” for a female president or the inane things that spilled out of people’s mouths on cable television—though let’s remember that Christopher Hitchens called Clinton “soppy and bitchy,” Mike Barnicle compared her to “everyone’s first wife standing outside a probate court,” and Keith Olbermann suggested that the Democratic Party needed “somebody who

The odds are that you think President Obama’s foreign policy is a failure. That’s the scathing consensus forming, with just 36 percent of Americans approving of Obama’s foreign policy in a New York Times/CBS News poll released this week. Foreign policy used to be a source of strength for the president, and now it’s dragging him down — and probably other Democrats with him. Mitch McConnell, the Senate minority leader, warns that Obama “has weakened the national security posture of the United States.” Trent Franks, a Republican member of the House from Arizona, cites foreign policy to suggest that Obama is “the
