Dems Won’t Be Saved
Again by the Tea Party

Commentary Magazine, by Jonathan S. Tobin

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 5/21/2014 3:54:03 PM

Yesterday’s primary results in Kentucky, Georgia, Oregon, and Idaho confirmed what has already become an obvious trend this year. Tea Party-backed candidates would not sweep to victory in Republican primary fights across the nation as they largely did in 2010 and 2012. That was good news for the so-called GOP establishment as well as for incumbents like Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, who crushed his Tea Party challenger in a Kentucky landslide. But it is even worse news for President Obama and the Democrats. Republicans blew golden opportunities to take winnable Senate seats from vulnerable Democratic incumbents in both the last

It is really simple. The GOP is going to perform or there will be a 3rd party formed. History teaches that old parties die. Crow away - but the GOP had better perform. And soon.

if democrats want 100 people to jump off a 100 story building tomorrow, the establishment republicans want 50 people to jump off a 50 story building next week.
they don´t offer solutions or alternatives.
maybe tea party members should just stay home in november. we´ll get democrat instead of democrat light but apparently we´ll never get an alternative from the boehner´s and mc connell´s of the world

What if McConnell loses in November, but we still manage to take the majority in the Senate?
Could we push to have Ted Cruz as Majority Leader? There´s a win-win..we send a message to the elites, and get a powerful Leader.

I voted yesterday and I voted for the candidate most likely to win the general election. I weeded out several candidates for positions or comments that in my opinion made them unviable in the general election.

Folks....we have to WIN back control of the Senate in November. If that means we do it with a candidate that I agree with 80% of the time, then so be it.

We are in our current state precisely because "principled" conservatives threw a hissy fit and sat through two presidential elections and ceded the country to a Marxist because the republican wasn´t conservative enough.

You either give people a reason to show up or you dont. Its that simple. Maybe the Republican Establishment should have thought about that. Slapping people in the face and then expecting them to show up to vote for you is asinine. In what reality other than Washington D. C. does that make sense.
As the line between Republican and democrat fades so does the reason to chooses between one or the other.

The hissyfit is all of your creation. Deal with the consequences.

We owe you nothing.

If one side of the isle is filled with establishment republicans, I don´t much care which party holds the majority.

As for Ldotters whom get their panty´s in a wad over my attitude, explain to me the following: What did the republicans do differently then democrats when they controlled the senate?

Most of these establishment figures are conservative enough, so I will support them all. The problem for me is that longer term I see the establishment going the way of the Nevada Republican Party and dropping opposition to abortion and same sex "marriage." I think the average establishment Republican is embarrassed by us social conservative, and by Jesus for that matter.

In California even Hugh Hewitt and Daryl Issa are telling us to vote for Kashkari for governor even though he supports gay marriage and abortion and voted for Obama because the Tea Party guy Donnely made some gaffs.

Getting directions on the road from Google Maps and other smartphone apps is a popular alternative to the expensive navigation aids included in some cars. The apps are also a gray area when it comes to laws banning the use of cellphones or texting while driving. The Transportation Department wants to enter the argument. The department is intensifying its battle against distracted driving by seeking explicit authority from Congress to regulate navigation aids of all types, including apps on smartphones. The measure, included in the Obama administration’s proposed transportation bill, would specify that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has the authority to

While Iraqi jihadists are slaughtering the masses, taking over major cities and engaging in the mass execution of Iraqi military in their march on Baghdad, you have to ask: How much sense does it make for Secretary of State John Kerry to be tweeting to Hollywood celebrities about the environment this past weekend? Or for President Obama to be working on his golf swing? Imagine the “optics” that sends to our foreign enemies. After all, when Islamist terrorists were attacking our U.S. Consulate in Benghazi in 2012 and murdering our people, the Obama administration looked the other way. Then blamed

Fox News Special Report anchor Bret Baier and his wife share how their faith was tested and, ultimately, strengthened when their oldest son was born with multiple heart defects. It takes a lot of strength and resilience to be a parent, but even more so when your child is suffering a life-threatening medical condition. To all the parents who, like the Baiers, have a sick child: Thank you for your unwavering courage, and for the wonderful example of love you set for all of us.

The Puerto Rico-born Labrador was part of the "Group of Eight" talks in the House last summer to craft a bipartisan immigration reform bill. But Labrador, one of the most conservative members of the House departed the group due to disagreements over how to pay for immigrants´ healthcare.

Poor Katie — get her some Kleenex and a wrinkle-free pantsuit. TV star Katie Couric took such a beating in the press after she jumped ship to CBS she started comparing herself to Hillary Clinton, a new book says. The steep drop in popularity that followed Couric’s exit from NBC’s “Today” show in 2006 left her full of self-pity, according to author Sheila Weller. “In private, Katie — who had recently turned 50 — was now beginning to actively and repeatedly compare herself to the embattled but energized Hillary Clinton,” Weller writes in her new book — “The News Sorority: Diane Sawyer,

My father gave me what too many girls nowadays ruin themselves for lacking: A strong, loving, steady masculine presence. It’s inconceivable what I would be like without him. So, before I explain why my dad’s story is bigger than us, let me brag on him a little. It’s Father’s Day weekend, after all. Dad’s presence in my life kept me safe from many things my girlfriends put themselves through in frantic search of a man’s love. And my dad’s love was tangible, more acted out than spoken. He didn’t just say he loved us. His life repeatedly proved it. I never

ARLINGTON, Va. — Book signing in aisle 30. Among pallets of paper towels and bottled water, Hillary Clinton spent more than three hours Saturday morning autographing copies of her new memoir, “Hard Choices,” at a Costco in Northern Virginia. And, as it turns out, you really never know who will show up. “I don’t believe this,” Clinton said as she embraced Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor across the table. Justice Sotomayor said she happened to be “just shopping” at the bulk discount depot when she spied the former secretary of state sitting down. She told Clinton she plans to read her book. “You better, I

Far from being excommunicated by Republicans after his loss to President Obama, 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is enjoying a brand resurgence of late, drawing several potential 2016 candidates to his "ideas summit" this weekend in Utah and even earning some 2016 speculation himself. Meanwhile, some other potential candidates are in Iowa for the state Republican Party´s convention there Saturday. And not to be left out, Gov. Chris Christie, R-N.J., was in California Friday to raise money for the Republican gubernatorial candidate there and participate in a Facebook chat. It all adds up to a busy weekend for the early 2016

Joe Queenan´s Guide to Public Speaking

People routinely say that being asked to speak in public is their No. 1 fear, inspiring more dread than flying. The idea of speaking to a group of people, even if they know the audience, scares them…well…speechless. And when it does come time to mount the stage, inexperienced speakers only make things worse by resorting to corny jokes and sappy, improbable anecdotes. Their agony makes everyone else in the room feel uncomfortable. The room reeks of flop sweat. There is also the flip side to public speaking: having to listen to it. Few things in life are more unpleasant than being

At any other time, the growing crisis on the Mexican border, with tens of thousands of unaccompanied young people crossing illegally into the United States, might dominate the news. Yet the situation has received less attention than it might amid the furor over House Majority Leader Eric Cantor´s primary defeat, the collapse of Iraq, the continuing Bergdahl matter, and Hillary Clinton´s book tour. They´re all genuinely important news stories, and they´ve crowded out disaster at the border. But whether or not many people noticed, this was the week in which the Obama administration´s attempts to deflect blame for the border

I know, I know, the recent ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Levant) gains have everyone scared. No doubt, the Islamophilic administration will want to step in, and save Islam from itself once again. Let me advocate a course of action that will make sense (snip) Let the Muslims kill each other. After the administration blundered on Benghazi, on the Arab Spring, and Syria, Heaven itself has afforded it one last chance to set itself right.

In an astonishing challenge to traditional Catholic doctrine, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, nominally Catholic, has taken to telling San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone that he should not attend the National Organization for Marriage’s June 19 march on the Supreme Court in Washington D.C. Cordileone is scheduled to be a featured speaker at the event, according to the San Francisco Chronicle, which is consistent with his championing of Proposition 8 in 2008. Cordileone helped raise $1.5 million for the initiative, which intended to ban same-sex marriage in the state. He once said, "The ultimate attack of the evil one is

Top Jeb Bush adviser Mike Murphy, who did not even pay attention to Dave Brat´s campaign like Breitbart News did, has falsely been claiming that Cantor´s embrace of amnesty for illegal immigrants was not the reason he lost last Tuesday. Liberal writer Mickey Kaus had enough of Murphy´s nonsense and slammed him on Twitter on Friday evening. Kaus became Brat´s de facto press secretary and top advocate on Twitter in the last months of the campaign because Kaus, like Brat, opposes amnesty for illegal immigrants because it would hurt American workers. He mentioned to Murphy that talk radio host Laura Ingraham

Bill Clinton is by far the most admired president of the past quarter century, a new poll shows, underscoring how much he has done to burnish his profile since leaving the White House in 2000. Asked which president of the past 25 years they admired most, some 42% of respondents named Mr. Clinton in the new Wall Street Journal/NBC News/Annenberg Survey. That was more than twice the share that named any other president. The other three presidents of the quarter century all polled about the same: 18% said they most admired President Barack Obama; 17% named George W. Bush; and 16%

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. – It´s perhaps appropriate that President Barack Obama is vacationing this weekend in California, where the state flag features a roaming grizzly. The restless president, who has compared himself to a caged animal on recent wanderings by declaring the "bear is loose," took a long Father´s Day weekend away with his wife and older daughter. The visit to the desert resort area of Palm Springs is one of the ways Obama has been trying to escape during his sixth year cloistered in the White House.

Anaheim, CA - President Obama, appearing emboldened after his recent move to cut carbon emissions from coal-fired power plants, on Saturday ridiculed members of Congress who deny climate change or plead scientific ignorance as an alibi for avoiding an uncomfortable truth. Speaking in gleefully sarcastic terms to a commencement ceremony at the University of California, Irvine, Mr. Obama likened those who deny climate change to people who would have told John F. Kennedy, at the dawn of the space program, that the moon “was made of cheese.” He saved his most scathing words for lawmakers who say they are not qualified to

President Barack Obama said denying climate change is like arguing the moon is made of cheese, as he issued a call to action on global warming to Saturday´s graduates of the University of California, Irvine. Obama issued the call to the tens of thousands gathered at Angel Stadium even though he said Congress ´is full of folks who stubbornly and automatically reject the scientific evidence´ and say climate change is a hoax or fad. Obama said others duck the question. ´They say, "Hey, look, I´m not a scientist." And I´ll translate that for you: what that really means is, "I know that

Members of Congress called on President Obama Sunday to link up with Arab allies and quell a quick-moving crisis in Iraq, where Islamic militants swept toward Baghdad and left a bloody trail in their wake. Republican lawmakers said the administration has sat on the sidelines for too long as sectarian violence threatens to undo what U.S. troops accomplished during the war in Iraq. The bloodshed spurred by militants from an al Qaeda splinter group could topple the country’s fragile government while civil war rages in neighboring Syria, they said, offering a magnet for extremists from Iran and even western nations.

The series is being produced by prominent Obama donor Steven Spielberg. First Lady Michelle Obama accompanied Malia to the CBS Studios as the teen helped with re-shoots of the pilot episode, assisting with computer alignments, and the director even let her use a production slate
