From my good friend, Angry White Dude, we get this very timely, and much needed dose of HARD TRUTH!


The Republican Civil War continues with wussypants Republicans choosing sides with either the Tea Party movement or the Republican establishment. Earlier this week, Mitt Romney (see ya!) joined Sarah Palin (see ya!) to endorse the Great Arizona RINO John McCain. These politicians apparently have not been watching what happened in NY 23 or what is happening in Florida. The Tea Party scuttled RINO leftist Republican Dede Scozzafava’s hopes of voting with the Democrats by supporting conservative Doug Hoffman. In Florida, conservative Marco Rubio has come from being 30 points down to Florida RINO Governor Charlie Crist only a few months ago to now poll 14 points ahead. Rumor has it Crist is about to run as an Independent since he knows he is toast. All due to the Tea Party movement! Look for more RINO losers to switch to the Democrats or run as Independents as the Tea Party runs them out of the party.

Today, former Minnesota RINO Tim Pawlenty also endorsed McCain. It’s appropriate because they have much in common. Neither one will ever be President! AWD never trusts ANY politician who comes from socialist states. Minnesota tops that list closely followed by Massachusetts. No matter how tough they talk, you can bet they have breathed too much of that socialist air. Pawlenty is that guy. So is Romney. It appears so is Palin.

The RINOs are betting the Republican establishment will either overpower or co-opt the tea party movement. Neither will happen. While totally grassroots, the tea party has a few things the Republicans lack. Momentum, guts, principles and votes! The Republican elite are the same as they’ve always been. Drunk on power and ready to sell their souls to stay in office. The tea party’s motives are pure. We see the Republican RINO establishment nearly as big an enemy as the Democrat socialists. The wussypants RINOs are merely enablers. Put the RINOs in charge and the government will continue to spend us into oblivion…only at a slightly slower pace.

Wussypants RINOs are making a huge mistake by underestimating the Tea Party movement. Palin, Romney, Pawlenty or any other seeking to curry favor with the good ol’ boys in Washington by endorsing the RINOs are committing political suicide. It’s a good thing. The Republican party needs a good bloodletting. RINOs must be thrown from the Republican party. We will accept only principled leaders…not unprincipled politicians!

Goodbye Tim Pawlenty. I’m glad we didn’t have to suffer through more of your RINO shenanigans!

Full Story Here:

I have to say, AWD really likes the word wussypants, and I do too. It describes the RINOs to perfection.

I hope there are MANY in the Conservative camp, and the TEA Party folks that are paying very close attention to these shenanigans. And don’t forget to HELP too, vote out the RINOs right along with the Dem/Libbers!

YES, we can! :P

    I kinda like the “wussypants” designation too. Have to figure out a good bumper sticker with that on it and sell em in yer store Fred!!! LOL!!!!

    Gotta love that post from AWD. It certainly spells out what I’ve been thinking.

    I love the picture and saved it for future use.

    You know what they say about birds of a feather flocking together.

    I think what makes the Tea Party movement great is that it has no centralized control. There’s no national headquarters or leaders. I see the Tea Party as local and local only. Groups of law abiding Conservative Americans gathering at churches, social clubs, neighbors garage, parks, and just about anywhere folks gather to talk who answer to no one but themselves . They all see things the same way and are fed up with an out of control government. They look at the issues, discuss them amongst themselves, and support the candidates that will stand for the Constitution, America, and Conservative Values. Now it seems Republican politicians are trying to take control or steer the movement. The recent Tea Party convention with its self appointed leaders see to bear this out. The Tea Party doesn’t need any national spokesman or leadership. IMO, the only ones pushing for that are the enemy within.

    The RINOS are in for a rude awakening come the 2010 elections. They need to start updating their resumes.

    Love that picture. Funny thing is McCain, Pawlenty, Palin all think that “They know the will of the people” and that the “Dem’s are out of touch” No guys, Y’all are out of touch and about to be unemployed. Which could be a problem…

    IF McCain is unemployed, can he still beat his wife with his good arm?

    Since UNEMPLOYMENT leads to spousal abuse I worry about John McCain, how can he possibly affect a good and proper ass whooping with one arm?…Damn the problems he faces ahead…

    I am always very suspicious of so-called conservatives from blue states. A blue state conservative and a red state conservative can be totally different animals. I have little use for those who hide behind a conservative mask while running for office only to toss it aside when the election is over and join the good of boys in congress who care little about the folks back home because they are more in tune with the special interest groups who wine and dine them and are constantly whispering sweet nothings in their ears.

    At this point in time the Tea Party movement seems to be held together by several central issues—fiscal conservatism and national defense. Social issues have taken a back seat. These issues alone may be enough this fall to get many candidates over the hump—I don’t know. I also expect the immigration issue will play a big part in this years contest and believe that most in the Tea Parties favor very strict immigration reforms with much more border enforcement. Of course, we all know where McCain and many RINO’s stand on this issue. This issue alone may doom McCain’s primary election in Arizona and assure J.D. Hayworth getting the nomination. The people of Arizona will then have a clear cut choice in November—this is always good. Great post by AWD.

    I have an “answer” to the over infestation of Rino’s. It’s Boss & Sons 470 NE…
    Aside from all that? Vote them out. Run for office yourselves! And screw political correctness! Get the message out. So what if you have a graveyard full of skeletons?

    How many people are there out there anymore that have unblemished credit, or a misdemeanor or two? Who frikn’ cares if they have the right set of values now?

    I for one would sooner vote for a felon that cleaned up his / her act before I would a RINO! If they were of a mind like the folks here are anyways!

    I’ve been a supporter of Palin, but after watching her “analysis” on Fox, I’m a little disappointed in her. She certainly is not very deep in some of her answers to questions.

  8. comment number 8 by: TexasFred

    I have never understood what is was that ANYONE saw in Palin as far as her being some great political persona…

    She’s a hunter, OK, that’s good. She’s not bad looking, that’s good too. She QUIT as Governor, and the reasons be damned, SHE QUIT! Not good at all.

    She’s as shallow as shallow can be, not anywhere near good.

    If ya need a MILF in a cheerleader suit, she’s probably the one you want. If you want a hard as nails warrior, business person that has the ability to deal with world leaders on a level playing field, Palin is one of the worst choices that I have ever seen..

    I didn’t vote for McCain/Palin, I voted for Bob Barr and Wayne Allyn Root, and before ANYONE starts that BS about a vote for Obama, DON’T GO THERE…

    McCain could have had every 3rd party vote cast and Obama still would have won regardless, the numbers DO NOT LIE…

    Obama/Biden 365 McCain/Palin 173

    If the GOP wants to take back the White House, if Republicans want to get elected, they had better court the hell out of REAL Conservatives and not put up some lame-ass POS like John McCain or an airhead like Sarah Palin…

    Otherwise, we will have Barack Hussein Obama AGAIN and that my friends will be the end of America!

    Well, In my opinion, Sarah Palin was the best candidate on the list at the ballot box. Bob Barr had kinks in the armor too. IF not, he’s be a political force now. That just shows how weak the field was at the time. Nuff said about that.

    The thing we have on our side is TIME now, we have another year to sort out RINO from Conservative, progressive Republican from Republican…I suggest everyone take the time to research the candidates they like, and those they dislike in this time. Use the time wisely and quit bestowing presidential aspirations on anyone that drives a truck or killed a moose…

    IF we keep pushing the value of Palin or McCain over the worse POTUS ever Obama, we do all of us a disservice. We deserve better than ALL of them three combined and there are some out there that would be heads and tales above them….

  10. comment number 10 by: TexasFred

    God help us, if Palin was/is the best the GOP can offer up, we are ALL screwed, figuratively…

  11. comment number 11 by: Always On Watch

    The RINOs hope that pandering to the Tea Partiers will garner votes. Indeed, the RINOs will try harder and harder to co-opt the Tea Party Movement.

    I hope that the GOP has the smarts to toss out the RINOs, but I admit to having my doubts that the GOP will take a principled stand. We have a dearth of statesmen in both of our major political parties.

    “If you want a hard as nails warrior, business person that has the ability to deal with world leaders on a level playing field, Palin is one of the worst choices that I have ever seen..

    This is exactly who Carly Fiorina is, and I hope she whips the heck out of Babs Boxer!!! I have admired Carly for years.

    Patrick, I think there is great credence in what you say and I would agree, but… it is the left wing that has been so effective with making people’s “past” the number one character assassination tactic used. That would make one with a less than perfect past, think twice, no matter how successful they have been at turning their lives around. That is one of the characteristics of the Democrat Party that caused me to turn to the Conservative view.
