Jennifer Rubin to Tea Party: Drop Dead

Guest Post by Mike LaRoche

Fresh off of the Republican Party establishment’s disastrous showing in last month’s presidential election, and with the federal government seemingly heading toward an alleged “fiscal cliff” amidst a bitter budget battle, “conservative” columnist and Team Romney head cheerleader Jennifer Rubin of the Washington Post unloads on her favorite targets: Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) and the Tea Party.

An excerpt:

First off they are a year and a half late. The GOP’s offer of more revenue was first made in the summer of 2011. Republicans offered revenue again in the supercommittee. And if the no-to-everything crowd is going to primary people they should include Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.), and dozens of other solid conservatives who have supported this approach for more than a year. When primarying incumbent conservatives, full disclosure would require that those doing the primarying acknowledge their other brilliant challengers included Richard Mourdock, Sharron Angle, Christine O’Donnell, Todd Akin and Ken Buck — losers all.

Losers just like your RINO hero Mitt Romney, right Ms. Rubin?

Also, “revenues?”  Just call them what they are: higher taxes.

    Jen has a long, long history of infuriating conservatives. She, Parker, Jr. Kristol, David Brooks are pond scum for conservatives.

    She’s another Donkey is disguise. She has now shown her true colors.

    From Mount Elitist to the unwashed masses comes a lightning bolt which …

    does nothing.

    Just like the other anti-TEA Party (get the spelling right) elitists do.

    It is really high time that we organize another major Tea Party street protest so these idiots understands we are not a small sliver of the population.

    First of all, the Bush tax cuts are expiring. Kaput! Gone. Anything afterwards belongs to Obama. He can raise taxes or he can institute another round of tax cuts. The bottomline is they are no longer Bush’s.

    If the people who agree with the basic principles of the teaparty fail to mobilize than apathy has truly set in and there will be no one or anything to try and turn this titanic ship of state from hitting the proverbial iceberg.

    Rubin used the conservatives to build up her readership. Now, she’s jumping ship to who she thinks will be the more popular.

    I say that the conservatives should vote their conscience. Personally, I think that they should let the sequester go…. Congress wrote it and Obama signed it. If they wanted to…they could just REPEAL IT.

    When do we admit that the Tea Party was hijacked? It went from being a fiscal conservative movement to being another failed religious movement.

  • Paul in N. AL

    There’s more than enough blame to go around on both sides here.

    The GOP’s offer of more revenue was first made in the summer of 2011.

    Let’s get this straight: tax increases do not necessarily equal “more revenue”. The idea that bumping up the tax rate will produce a sustained increase in revenue is mistaken, and no one with any common sense would believe, say, or insinuate that.

    Time for a new party, The American Conservative Party. All the Rhinos can go beg for handouts at the Obama state farm.
    $hit or get off the pot. You are either a Conservative or Obama supporter it’s come to that!

    I don’t recall the Tea Party pushing Religion as their core message. I remember them standing up for social conservatives values the way Reagan did, but I don’t remember anything about them making Religion front and center.

    You obviously know nothing about the Tea Party.

    She may act like a jack-ass, but she is surely no donkey.

  • Jeroboam

    OK. But what does it tell you that NEITHER Tea Party Republicans NOR “moderate” Republicans did very well, on the whole, in November?

  • Tim Tomlinson

    Rubin is untrustworthy. She’s clearly not an American-firster.

    The day to affirm your numbers was on Nov. 6th. Now it’s just “sore loser-ism.”

    Rubin lives in the Beltway area and writes for the WaPo.

    So, Jennifer, whatcha gonna do? Stand by your principles, or be a sellout?

    Jennifer is has been a Palin basher from way back; if Jenn ever had a kind word for Sarah Palin, who does stand by her principles, I bet she would disavow it.

    What a brainless bimbo. Sad (pathetic) thing is, she most likely fancies herself as some intellectual voice of the Right. Nope, douchebag…you’re just a ridiculously out of touch no mind. Romney was at best a “grin and fake it” candidate. And by that, I mean anyone on the right saying they were a Romney supporter was just grinning past the tears of knowing this guy was the best the GOP could put forward, and faking any kind of enthusiasm.

    Romney got his ass absolutely KICKED (Levin and Rush need to STFU with the “Obama only won 52% of the vote nonsense–it makes them sound like idiots). Romney got trounced, and in hindsight, the outcome was never ever in doubt.
