The Pink Flamingo detests the Club for Growth. Then again, there a number of organizations and groups of organizations I detest. The Club for Growth is responsible for the “RINO List”, something which has basically destroyed the GOP. Well, now they are after Lindsey. Considering how thick Jim DeMint is with them, that alone is a nasty insult, but then again, anything these people do is insulting to NORMAL Republicans.
“..Club for Growth strongly supported four South Carolina GOP candidates for Congress in the 2010 election cycle. Club for Growth members and the group’s PAC together contributed $130,000 to Rep. Jeff Duncan of Laurens County, $122,000 to DeMint, $86,000 to Rep. Mick Mulvaney of Lancaster County and $66,000 to Rep. Tim Scott of North Charleston, federal data show.
Club for Growth often supports the same candidates as Senate Conservatives Fund, a well-funded political action committee that DeMint set up to support candidates who share his commitment to limited government and free-enterprise principles. DeMint couldn’t be reached for comment but Chocola said the Senate Conservatives Fund is unlikely to oppose Graham. DeMint has a policy of using his PAC only to oppose Democrats and promote conservatives seeking open Senate seats, Chocola noted. Though he has ideological differences with Graham, DeMint has said they are friends.
Matt Hoskins, a longtime DeMint aide who runs the Senate Conservatives Fund, said the group is focused on 2012 races. “We haven’t looked at 2014 races,” he said. “We haven’t talked to the Club for Growth.”
Tea party conservatives generally haven’t been happy with Graham, whom they see as too willing to compromise with Democrats. Since Obama took office, Graham has adopted a stridently conservative tone and voted with fellow Republicans to oppose Democratic initiatives like the 2009 economic stimulus package and the 2010 health care reform law….
No one has emerged to take on Graham in 2014, but Club for Growth’s announcement that it would consider backing a hypothetical challenger — which Chocola first made at a Christian Science Monitor media breakfast on Thursday — could serve as a casting call, analysts say….”
It’s all about control, and the ability to rile up the base.
The Pink Flamingo truly detests groups like this. They do far more harm than good, and they are a danger to the GOP. Basically, they have destroyed the Republican Party.
- Americans for Prosperity and it’s nasty little off-spring including Freedom Works and numerous tea party disasters. I think they are a greater danger to the stability to this nation than anything George Soros ever imagined.
- Club for Growth, National Chamber
- Heritage Foundation
- ANY anti-immigration group connected to FAIR
- Just list all the “religious” “family” and “patriot” groups together.
One of these days, people in this country are going to get enough and tell these organizations to take a hike. The Pink Flamingo is not holding my breath. ‘Little’ individuals, such as Chris Chocola of the Club for Growth, Tony Perkins, Gary Bauer, John Tanton, Sam Stein, Phyllis Schlafly, and so forth and so on, have truly harmed this nation. They have become so powerful, with their faux mailing lists and operating cash that the more cowardly members of the House and Senate bow to their demands. You can’t have a real Republic with people like these entrenched with so much power.
