In an abrupt change in strategy, Sen. Mitch McConnell has decided to go after Ted Cruz, Sarah Palin, the Senate Victory Fund and other conservative groups who are backing his primary challenger.

 

According to the Lexington Herald-Leader,

Several allies of McConnell and other Senate Republicans say the senator is now planning a two-front war: one against Grimes and the other against the fundraising groups that are supporting Bevin. McConnell’s real targets are the Senate Conservatives Fund, which announced its endorsement of Bevin on Oct. 18, Heritage Action for America, Madison Project, FreedomWorks and other outside groups.

If McConnell can crush Bevin, the thinking goes, he can expose a lack of ideological consistency in the outside groups, allowing him to separate Tea Party voters from Tea Party fundraising groups.

McConnell has fumed for about four years as he watched outside groups back primary challengers who defeated Republican incumbents then lost to Democrats, making his dream of becoming Senate Majority Leader a nightmare.

The decision by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, a Tea Party icon, to become the face of the government shutdown gave McConnell an opening to start pushing back. In an Oct. 11 interview with the Lexington Herald-Leader, the senator made his move, abruptly departing from the dominant no-compromise message and boasting of his record of making deals with Vice President Joe Biden.

Sen. Ted Cruz, Jim DeMint, Sarah Palin, and the tea party supporting groups wanted a fight with McConnell, and now they’ve got it. Sen. McConnell has seen his chances to become Majority Leader destroyed by the tea party in 2010 and 2012, and the reality is that 2014 will probably be McConnell’s last chance to become Majority Leader. McConnell is 71 years old, and in 2016 Senate Republicans will be defending 24 seats to the Democrats 10. If Democrats hold on to control of the Senate in 2014, they could be in the majority for a long time.

 

For McConnell, this is also about payback. The Senate Conservatives Fund ran an ad against Mitch McConnell in Kentucky over the summer. Sarah Palin stuck her nose into the situation, and has been chirping about supporting McConnell’s primary challenger Matt Bevin.

 

The decision to fight a two front war against both his primary challenger and his fall opponent Alison Lundergan Grimes is risky. If McConnell gets damaged in the primary, it could open the door for Grimes to take his seat in the fall.

 

The fallout from the government shutdown continues. The mainstream media is obsessed with the healthcare.gov website, but the same conflict within the Republican Party that almost caused the nation to default is raging on. These tea party challenges to incumbent Senate Republicans are great news for Democrats, and the great irony in all of this is that Mitch McConnell opposes all forms of campaign finance regulation. McConnell favors all forms of unlimited outside campaign money, just not when it is used against him.

 

McConnell’s throw down with the tea party is nothing but good news for the Democrats.

More hyperventilated leftist Disinformation.

And I'll bet blind McConnell said nothing about Cruz or Palin.

Good. McConnell needs to be thrown out, he's the Democrat's best friend in the Senate publicly attacking but behind the scenes advancing the liberal agenda.

 

Clearly (if this story is true), McConnell feels threatened by the Primary Challenge and this is nothing but good news for America.

Politicians should be held responsible for their actions, regardless their position of power.

Probably not... but I'm rooting for him to be beaten by his TEA Party challenger.

I don't know. McConnell has always struck me as understated and crafty.

 

Working toward getting the Senate and the presidency, then embarking on a huge reform plan of the Welfare State.

 

It takes both the Cruz-type and the McConnell-type to be effective.

Boy, it is really is true that Republicans eat their own, isn't it.

Spoken as if the Tea-Party is going to survive two more election cycles.

 

And McConnell is no Liberal. He's been the House Tea Party's supporter in the Senate. His main objective since Obama got elected was to do whatever was necessary to destroy his Presidency (no coincidence that has been the Tea Party objective as well) - even if it meant destroying the country in the process.

 

You have a short memory. .

 

McConnell is doing what all slimy conservatives to when the boat starts leaking - He grabs the only lifeboat and lets his friends go down with the ship.

Apparently you missed the Obie vs. Hillbilly show eh? Nawww......I'm sure you were watching and slurping up every second of it - you just chose to be ignorant with your statement.

 

I'm not familiar with what you're talking about.

My statement is a very old one. It did not originate with me.

Spin baby spin.

 

Your statement "Boy, it is really is true that Republicans eat their own, isn't it" - implies the Democrats do not, and its unique to Republicans. I provided you with but one lefty "eating" their own scenario for you to reference.

 

Then you come back with the above quoted malarky? You're an idiot.

You may be right about specifics, but McConnell has been very vocal in his opposition to Cruz and Palin's tactics. Remember the "there's no education in the second kick of a mule" that was in direct response to if cruz should challenge the debt limit again in January.

Damn right it's good for America! The splitting of the Republican party guarantees general election victory for Dems. I love seeing all of the money spent between your infighting. Herritage vs GOP. A lose/lose situation!!!

Claymation death match?!!! Yea, that was funny!!!

What you are referring to is a typical primary. What the article represents is two groups of the Republican party attacking each other. Apples and oranges.

Reasonable people can disagree over whether Cruz was correct in his tactics. Time will tell.

 

But that doesn't mean McConnell is rejecting the Tea Party.

 

That's just a troll lie.
