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.

    Romney opposed all increases in tax rates, and promised a reform of the tax code.

    For the record.

    Has anyone found a Kommiecrat voting block that is excoriated or is it only The Establishment that attacks their base?

    “or is it only The Establishment that attacks their base?” … I agree #24 … and I am tired of the low down tactics each party (but mostly the republicans) use on their own people. IMO, there are actually FOUR parties… in both the democrats and republican parties there lies two sides, the traditionalists and the progressives. That is where the division and hostilities lie. There are just far less of the traditionalists in the democrat party, which is why their division is not so strong. The battle currently raging inside the republican party is very, very important. Whoever ‘wins’ determines what direction the party takes… *sigh* just my opinion of course.

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

    A repeat of 2010 will be coming in 2014, and that will be especially so if Obie’s brinksmanship fails and the country goes over the “fiscal cliff”.

    Watch Obie when that happens, and you’ll see a sore “winner”.

    I’m reminded of an amazingly true observation:

    “Politicans never say what they mean and never mean what they say”

    There is not one politician in Washington telling the truth. Secession is looking more and more interesting all the time.

    The final nail in the coffin. Rinos will going to lose election after election.

  • Wild Thing

    Mitt Romney did not want to raise taxes. The person that posted this article by Rubin is a Sarah Palin zombie.

    Jenny: My, that was a cranky column. And not horribly perceptive. From it we learned: 1. You were in a pissy mood when you wrote it. 2. You hate anyone who challenges the current power structure. 3. Shut up if you have a different idea.

    Rather run of the mill stuff for mainstream media. Other people have pulled this kind of thing off with much more flair – until they were fired from MSNBC, that is.

    This is exactly the type of internecine warfare that Obama was counting on to tear the GOP apart and neuter it heading into his second term.

    You are playing right into Obama’s master plan, to the extent he has one.

    Give him his lousy tax increase already for the top 2%. When it doesn’t work & the economy crashes & burns he’ll own it outright. Or maybe not. But one thing is certain, if we do nothing, taxes go up for everybody & the GOP will be hung with that albatross & its consequences.

    Jennifer Rubin? Who’s that?

    Just who’s side is she on? With fellow Republicans like her, who needs enemies?

    A an internet warrior with the name of “Bubba” says that Romney losing by 2 percentage points means he “absolutely got his ass kicked” and that “Limbaugh and Levin should STFU about it”. Well, by all means -Bubba must be correct because his obvious intellectual inferiors think that 2 percentage points is a small margin of victory.

    Get this straight – BO received no mandate from his paper thin victory. If the weakling Repubs give in to him on amnesty and taxes they are writing a needless death warrant for the USA.

    Well, add another pundit whose columns I will no longer read, and who will get muted when she’s on tv. Geesh. What a jerk.

    The idea that Akin was a tea party candidate is quickly becoming an accepted truth. It is a fabrication since FreedomWorks supported John Brunner and Sarah Palin supported Sarah Steeleman. Some shrewd advertising by McCaskill partially led to Akin’s nomination.

    Without the Tea Party, we wouldn’t have Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Ron Johnson, Mike Lee, Deb Fisher and other conservative stalwarts in the Senate, as well as the majority in the House. Furthermore, moderate GOP candidates in North Dakota and Montana cost us seats we should have easily won.

    Sharon Angle nearly displaced Harry Reid who has brought millions of crony money to Nevada.

    Ken Buck got screwed by last minute allegations of plagiarism…which were proved to be false – after the election.

    Christine O’Donnell, Todd Akin were idiots.

    But there have been plenty of rino losers that lost.

    Let’s get this straight:


    TEA Party. Everyone who uses the lower case “tea party” denigrates the anti-tax movement.
