Senator McConnell: Cut, Run And Hide Plan

To call the plan traitorous that Senator McConnell has offered, is to be harsh to traitors. There is no doubt that Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is a true blue Benedict Arnold in 2011. I am unsure whether Mr. McConnell spends much time with We The People, but based upon the knives in the backs of Conservatives across America, I will say no, he does not. He has done We The People dirty in the past and until we throw the bum out, he will do so again. It is up to the TEA Party to find a primary opponent for McConnell and for We The People to give that person millions upon millions to make sure that he never again acts the Judas that he is today Senator McConnell You Are An Embarrassment To The Republican Party

Two tea party senators are mocking their own GOP leader’s debt proposal on Twitter.

Sens. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) and Mike Lee (R-Utah), in jointly timed tweets Friday, called Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s last ditch debt limit proposal a “cut, run and hide plan.”

Instead, DeMint and Lee pledged support for the “Cut, Cap, Balance Act,” which the House will take up next week and requires deep spending cuts, statutory spending caps and passage of a balanced budget amendment before any hike to the $14.3 trillion debt ceiling.

“I will not be supporting the cut, run, and hide plan to raise the debt ceiling. I support the House’s position to vote on #cutcapbalance ACT,” Lee tweeted.

Added DeMint: “GOP wasn’t sent to Washington to cut, run & hide from debt fight with ‘fallback’ plan. We need to pass cut, cap & balance.

  1. As you may recall, he won by the tiniest of margins in 2008. What I thought was good has turned out otherwise.

    Careful for what we wish for, I guess. he can’t remain in leadership after Nov ’12. He has to be pushed aside.

    • I spoke with a Republican Party insider from KY at a conference and he had nothing good to say about Mitch McConnell and the 5M he got from his dad in the waning days of that election and whether is was legal or not!

    • Pushed aside? The only thing that could describe Bitch McConnell’s next election is “kicking the horse from beneath him.” He doesn’t have balls enough to kick it himself.

      Can I pick the tree and slap the horse?

  2. What happens “When” the debt limit is once again exceeded, which I have no doubt it would be, “Before” “Expected.”

    I mused about this earlier, wondering if there is a hidden trap to drag the default scare out into next year. Just a a passing thought, you understand, but the point is, we have The Dope on the Ropes and we don’t need to cut run and hide.

  3. The Tea Party in KY 1 needs to start a full blown recall petition right now to stop this {redacted} little traitor in his tracks. Did o promise mcconnell he could be assistant prince of the world or something if he sold out the american people? Seriously. If the dimmies in WI can do it, so can we. And KY 1 needs to have it up and running by opening of business Monday morning. I am in TN and will cheerfully DRIVE to help them. Any of you either in KY 1 or who know someone who is please get this ball rolling asap.
    In the meantime, as Vassar so poignantly pointed out, the fate of freedom rests solely on the shoulders of John Boehner. Please call his office on Monday and offer up copious words of support and prayer. I feel certain the cretinous left is using their speed-dial functions to threaten him and call him all sorts of {redacted} so calls of support need to be high up on every ones to-do-list for Monday. Imagine how Boehner feels using what is probably every ounce of strength he’s got trying to hold this line knowing his counterpart in the next building is actively undermining all his best efforts. Let’s give him all the help we can.

    • Amen! But I don’t think there’s a recall mechanism for Fed officeholders; I wish! Our only bet is a super-strong primary opponent next time around. I just emailed Speaker Boehner as you suggested, advise everyone else to follow suit. The Senate doesn’t have to be like this; we have some stormtroopers there who would make excellent leaders.

  4. Thanks for the tutorial! 🙂 Civics for me was in 1959 and American history in 1962 so I either flunked them both or have forgotten the particulars or they, like everything else, have changed since that long ago simpler time.

  5. What the GOP doesn’t realize is that they have been handed a balanced budget amendment on a silver platter – one that has already been passed and must be adhered to. It’s called the Debt Ceiling, and if it is not raised then the government will be forced to live within its means for the foreseeable future. Oh, it’ll be hell for the rest of this year, but the fact is that next year a budget must be passed that is in line with projected revenues.

    Let the Democrats explain why we need to borrow money to fund their programs, and let them, for once, determine priorities.

    And if one thinks I am worried that we might miss a payment to the ChiComs, one would be incorrect. We’ll just call it payback for them stealing everything that we have ever made. Life’s tough…

  6. Cut, run and hide”…you gotta’ love DeMint’s way with words, don’t you?

    Agree with Suzanne 100% on this…his constituents will have to get him out of there in 2012, but we definitely don’t need Repubs to kow-tow now.

      • Yeah, Jaded, I agree. I would have loved to see him run for President, but he’s so effective in the role that he has now…behind the scenes, watching our backs. And I believe that he does watch the backs of “we the people”.

        This debt ceiling battle isn’t over yet, just because McConnell thinks he’s the BMAC right now. We do have some folks like DeMint who could find a way to keep that in check.

        I really wish Paul Ryan had stayed out it. I do respect the man a great deal, but in this particular case…

  7. I don’t know, and I’m not asking, if any of you ever visit the site formerly known as prince, but occasionally I do. there is an interesting post up there right now on Mcconnell and how his abdication of the debt ceiling is perhaps his way of trying to elevate himself to the position of Senate Majority Leader in 2012. If there is even a gram of truth to this, KY 1 better get VERY busy VERY fast and let him know that this little traitorous move will
    1)insure the petulant prince’s reelection in 2012
    2)insure the dimmis will retain control of the senate and probably regain control of the house
    3)insure that he, Mitch Mcconnell WILL BE OUT OF A JOB in 2012.
    And someone up there should start an investigation on the questionable 5 million last minute infusion into his campaign in 2008.

  8. Supposedly that idea he has to hand off any increase in debt limit to Obama, was to make it so that the onus was all on him if he used it and esp. if Congress then voted against it (also part of that plan). I confess there are too many legislative procedure intricacies in this for me to understand it. Sometimes I have to fall back on my gut. What does my gut tell me? I trust McConnell and the Senate Repub leadership on this particular plan, about as far as I can throw my house. It’s not the plan,it’s the people offering and implementing it that worry me. I think when they get ensconsed in DC, that’s the part they don’t get about we voters out here.
