Note To Republican ‘Leaders': What The TEA Party Giveth…

It's no insult to be called a Hobbit

(Mark America)h/t AFinch…It’s clear enough that the GOP establishment has a basic contempt for its base.  Let me explain to you folks, to whom Mark Levin refers as ‘Re-Pubics’ or ‘RINOs,’ what it is that you seem not to have noticed: You can’t have any lasting electoral victory without the base of your party, and that base is decidedly conservative and a bit populist, and even those who are not members of the TEA Party certainly have firm sympathies and common principles with them.

Today, those of you in the DC ‘leadership’ of the GOP may have sealed your electoral fate in 2012.  Rather than take on the President, and simply shrug and walk away from all the deal-making, you went on the attack, not against Obama, and not against Harry Reid and his band of thugs in the Senate, but instead, you went to war with your base.  You did the same thing in 2005.  You continued the practice into 2006.  You lost your majority.  I suppose you think this is a winning strategy, but I’ve got news for you, since you seem incapable of learning it otherwise:  It can’t work.

Give it up.

You tried again in 2008, by trying to get that pathetic Amnesty bill through, and the base, not even yet formed into or associated with TEA Parties, let you have it, in a full-throated, phone-line melting barrage of their displeasure.  Come November, the party was unable to motivate the base to the polls in sufficient numbers to overcome “history.” One would think you would learn these lessons.  In 2009 and 2010, when you stood in stern and unforgiving opposition to Porkulus and against Cap & Tax and Obamacare, the TEA Party folk, as well as your base, responded by giving you back control of the House.

Look at all the 'Hobbits'

Still, you did not learn.  Instead, you’ve whined about your position as “only one-half of one-third of the government,” but that baloney won’t cut the mustard here.  You want all the trappings of power without having to stand out on the front lines and lead.  Yes, we all know Obama’s intransigent.  Do you know why?  He has no intention of any deal, of any sort, at any time.  He intends to usurp your authority as the constitutionally-mandated body in which all spending and revenue measures must originate. You know, that “antiquated document” copies of which many of you carry in your pockets these days, but seem not to have read?  He doesn’t want to cut a deal. To cut a deal would be to cede the ground on an argument he’s about to make with the advice of President Clinton behind him.  When he does, will you impeach him?  Will you whine that it will be pointless since the Senate will not remove him, since you’re “only one-half of one-third of the government?”

Well, by my estimation, at least one-third of the government is in open insurrection against the constitution, and you stand there mouthing platitudes about your impotence.  Will doing so make you less so?  Will negotiating with a President, or his shills in the Senate make you any less impotent?

No, it won’t. On your way to ceding your power by silent assent, and worse, by attacking your own electoral base, what you guarantee is not only your defeat, but the ruin of our nation.  If, as John McCain and the Wall Street Journal contend, your base and the TEA Party are merely hobbits going to war against Obama’s Mordor, and we can guess that Harry Reid is Saruman, where does that leave you in this story?  Obviously, the geniuses at WSJ are only half-familiar with the story, and as HotAir rightly points out, McCain hasn’t read the trilogy, because if he had, he’d know this leaves you in the place of Denethor, the mad Steward of Gondor, who throttled and sacrificed his own at the mere threat of victory by Mordor.  It didn’t go at all well for him.  At this moment, I can see Speaker Boehner in his role as Denethor running ablaze, pitching himself over the wall.  Of course, with such a leading light as Juan McCain playing the role of ‘Grima Wormtongue’ in our camp, bending the ear of the Senate, it’s no surprise that you view your base and the TEA Party with contempt.

I’ve got a suggestion for you, or at least for Senator McCain and the fine folks at the Wall Street Journal. You’d better be prepared because I think Aragorn, the ranger from the North, this time in the form of a woman, is about to arrive with the “Army of the Dead.” I think a few hobbits will be in attendance. We’re going to clean you out, this time.

We’re going to primary all of you if we can, even if we must lose the seat in the process. Better to get rid of the fakes. Better to send you home. It’s bad enough to contend with the open evil of Obama, but it’s another matter entirely to put up with this from people for whom we voted.

  1. Awesome work, Puddy! I’ve been looking for one of the old animated Ralph Bakshi hobbits waving a sword to put the Gagsden flag behind. No luck getting it right so far, but I like yours!

    I think the TP should primary every single one of the Leadership. McConnell, Boehner, Cantor, everyone. They are too comfy in their taxpayer-funded leather chairs. Plus, 30 plus years in Congress is too much. This job was never meant as a career, it was meant to be temporary b/c the Founding Father’s greatly distrusted power and the accumulation of power.

    Plus, the new blood has zero to no chance of being able to impact the process b/c of seniority and the back scratching that goes on.

      Do you notice how the biggest and fattest grub worm of them all (McConnell) is keeping himself under the radar. That’s how he likes to play it when the heat is on….he scurries slithers back up to his offices and works behind closed doors. At least the man appreciates what he looks like in the mirror.

    • Philly, I think the enivitable outcome of all this “concessionary” legislation is going to be exactly that. The RINO/Decepticon class is going to have to form a 3rd party. The real conservatives in the electorate are gonna dispatch them all. I see it on every page I visit, and I don’t just visit the “friendly” pages. There is a whole ‘nuther wave of people waking up…..

        Right on, Sundance!! All the rest of you, stop what you’re doing and think about the concept at work here.

        For too long, conventional wisdom has held that if we, the real Americans, want to see any change, we’re going to have to form a third party which will promptly be stomped like a grape in any election.

        THIS IS BULLCRAP. WE ARE THE MAJORITY. THIS IS OUR COUNTRY. We’re not forming a third party–the DeceptiCons are going to have to form their own miserable little Cocktail Party!! And may it crash and burn with a quickness.

        All my brother and sister Americans, stop rolling with a permanent defensive strategy. That’s how they’ve been keeping us on the ropes lo these many years. It’s time to go on offense: This is our country and we’re taking it back–and all you DeceptiCons and Communists had better just damn well learn to like it.

        THAT’S how we have to roll, folks. :D
