How the Tea Party Libertarians Will Destroy the GOP this November

Share

INSULTING MINORITIES EVERYWHERE

Perception is everything. Because of the far right libertarian extreme populated by Michelle Malkin, Rand Paul, and the anti-immigration freaks, we’ve in danger of completely losing the Hispanic vote for several generations. The GOP was finally making inroads with African American voters. Now, opening his bigoted nasty mouth, Rand Paul destroys what we have been trying to create since Nixon. The more conservatives attempt to defend their little libertarian darling, the worse mess they are creating.

Rand Paul MUST Return White Supremacist Money!

Share

Once upon a time the GOP soundly renounced David Duke. Too bad those days are over.

Unfortunately The Pink Flamingo can no longer support either Sarah Palin or Jim DeMint. I will support them when they renounce Rand Paul and demand he return the money he took from white supremacists. I do not understand how Sarah Palin, who claims to be so very pro-Israel and supports our military can endorse someone like Rand Paul who is, according to Pat Buchanan, one of them. He does not support Israel. He is against the “military industrial complex”, does not believe in fighting the war on terror, and wants to bring our troops home from Afghanistan and Iraq – immediately.

The Pauls, Third Parties, DeMint’s Ambition, and Tea Party Spoilers

Share

The Ron Paul ego trip continues. In Iowa, his Bots managed to stage a small coup (the way they have done in SC, OK, UT, etc). Now they are promoting this idiot for POTUS.

“...Since the 2008 caucuses, no potential presidential candidate has visited Iowa more than Ron Paul. With a friendlier SCC, a tailor made political environment, and a wealth of knowledge from his previous run, Ron Paul could be a force to be reckoned with in the 2012 Iowa caucuses.

UPDATED: Republican Voting Records and Tea Party Lies!

Share

Funny thing about the alleged “Tea Party Movement”, promoted and nurtured by FOX News, it is not Republican. We’re being told by Sean Hannity that it is all about a re-vitalized conservative movement. People like Jim DeMint and Ron Paul are heralded as “pure” while men like Lindsey Graham, John McCain, Bob Inglis, and Mitch McConnell are treated like dirt by conservatives as “impure”.

Well, until March and the latest ACU ratings, this is the best we can do. And – it looks like Lindsey Graham, John McCain and Bob Inglis, denigrated as “impure” may actually be “purer” conservatives than Jim DeMint and Ron Paul.

Go figure.

The WPost has their voting record database for the 111th Congress compiled. There are a few surprises.

“…The Post’s voting database showed that Graham voted with Republicans 91 percent of the time while the state’s junior senator stood with his party 87 percent of the time.

The Conservative’s Version of ACORN

Share

The Pink Flamingo has a commentary about conservatives meddling in elections where it is none of their durn business at Blogcritics.

If conservatives aren’t careful, their newly found desire to meddle in misc. “local” Congressional and Senate races is going to cause them no end of grief. Not only will it back-fire, but it will end up making them a laughing-stock.

This meddling is about several things. It is part of the ongoing purity war that will do nothing but doom us all to a life-time of Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Barack Obama. After repeatedly trying to figure out why someone would be so abjectly blind and stupidly want to doom a GOP Majority, there is only one logical conclusion. It is all about power. If we have a GOP majority, then certain far right, irrational conservative freaks like Michelle Malkin, Laura Ingraham, and any number of pathetic bloggers and columnists will be forced to admit they were wrong. Trust me, these people would rather destroy the country than admit they were wrong.

We are also in one of those interesting periods of Republican politics where there is no “heir” apparent. The GOP has some excellent potential candidates. The Pink Flamingo cannot help but think some of this hyper-conservative manipulations is nothing but a run at poll positions for 2012. If so, then it is is war, plain and simple. We could be seeing supporters of one candidate doing underhanded things to destroy the chances of the supporters of another candidate or the candidate themselves.

It is obvious Jim DeMint is dealing with a little quest for power. Some tout his POTUS aspirations, another group thinks he is manipulating elections to propel himself into Mitch McConnell’s job. Then again there are some who theorize that the far right is engaged in a nasty and vicious war against Lindsey Graham because he is one of the few Republicans who could manage to pull in enough independent voters to actually defeat Barack Obama.

(NOTE: The Pink Flamingo did not come up with this theory, it was pointed out to her by a very unexpected source).

Then again, we currently hip-deep in a manufactured “populist” movement designed to promote the careers and ambitions of a couple of disgusting media personalities. The Pink Flamingo believes we are in the middle of a libertarian (read that Losertarian) assault on the GOP in order to weaken it and to make a heck of a lot of mischief. If you dig deep enought into this disgusting and populist tea party movement, the roots are either losertarian or something even nastier.

Why Does the Far Right Hate Lindsey Graham?

Share

“…”There will be no climate change bill with my vote unless you have offshore oil drilling,” Graham told Fox News on Thursday. “I won’t vote for any climate change bill that doesn’t allow a dramatic increase in nuclear power. I’m not going to vote for any climate change bill that doesn’t allow us to use our coal deposits.”…”

Friday on his show, Rush Limbaugh did not tell the truth. He was complaining about the fact that no Republicans were standing up to the Obama Administration and trying to be leaders. He lied. Lamar Alexander is standing up to them. So is John McCain. Mitch McConnell is fighting. Charles Grassley, once denounced as “liberal” is sounding like a regular Ronald Reagan as he fights the liberals.

We have some great Republicans trying to fight Obama. Unfortunately the far right talking heads would rather lie about their efforts than to praise them. There’s a good reason. I think the far right wants to prevent the GOP from winning in 2010.

It’s obvious they have a “hate on” for many of our leaders, Lindsey especially.

There’s a good reason for this.

Lindsey is emerging as THE leader of the Republicans in the Senate. If Lindsey continues on his current path, he is going to be the most powerful Republican in Washington, the perfect replacement for George W. Bush – a true patriot and a man of honor.
