McConnell Admits He “Boxes Out” Cruz – Helps Obama

Surrender Monkey Mitch McConnell and far-Left President Barack Obama

In one of the most stunning admissions of establishment Republican perfidy in recent political history, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has admitted that he and his staff “box out” one of his own Republican colleagues – principled limited government constitutional conservative Senator Ted Cruz – to the advantage of our political opponents, far-Left Democratic President Barack Obama and his allies in the Congress.

That there has long-been enmity between the conservative Republican Senator from Texas and the establishment Republican Senate Majority Leader is not news – they could hardly be more different in terms of temperament and politics.

Ted Cruz is the straightforward advocate of limited government constitutional conservatism and the grassroots conservative view that the Republican majority in Congress should use all the tools the Constitution provides to rein-in the lawless overreach of President Barack Obama.

Mitch McConnell is the embodiment of the go-along-get-along approach to “governing” embraced by the old bulls of the Capitol Hill Republican establishment. McConnell and Republicans of his ilk believe that the chief job of Congress is to divvy-up the spoils the welfare state extorts from producers and as long as his cronies are rewarded and his state of Kentucky gets a proper share of earmarks all is right with the world.

McConnell, with his usual self-satisfied smirk, has long maintained that his disagreements with Ted Cruz and other conservatives are really just tactical in nature and that he and conservatives really agree on the goals, he just disagrees on how and how fast Congress can get there.

We have long-maintained that was a lie, and that McConnell and the Republican establishment have no intention of actually confronting and defeating Obama – and now Senator McConnell has admitted we are right.

An article in Tuesday’s POLITICO “How McConnell outfoxed Ted Cruz,” outlines how “in the latest shutdown scare, which will end on Wednesday, the leader [McConnell] and his team executed a coordinated strategy to box Cruz out, according to interviews with GOP leaders and aides.”

The truly bizarre premise of the Republican “leaders” quoted in the article is perhaps best expressed by Senator John Thune of South Dakota, the No. 3 Senate Republican: “He’s [Cruz] running for national office. He’s got a different endgame than we do. There are things we have to do here. We’ve got to fund the government every year.”

Thune’s comments are bizarre for at least four reasons:

First, what Thune is saying is that Republicans will never fight to defund any Democratic initiative, no matter how unpopular. If Democrats threaten to “shut down the government,” then no program, once funded, can ever be eliminated as long as a Democratic President or Democratic Senators want to keep it. Such a concept of “governing” is absurd and makes electing a Republican Senate majority an exercise in futility since, under Thune’s formulation, such a majority would never fight for any conservative principle or spending priority.

Second, the notion that Ted Cruz is pursuing conservative policy outcomes solely to advance his presidential campaign is ridiculous on its face. What Cruz is doing is fulfilling promises he made in the Republican primary in which his underdog campaign defeated his establishment Republican opponent, long before the notion of a Cruz presidential run had any currency.

Third, the actions that Ted Cruz is advocating are not unique Cruz ideas – they are positions Republicans campaign on every election and most promptly abandon when they get to Washington. If Ted Cruz’s sin in the eyes of the Senate’s Republican leadership is taking the Republican platform and campaign promises seriously that is an indictment of them, not him.

Fourth and perhaps most importantly, conservative policy success is an end in itself. It is what Republicans supposedly come to Congress to achieve and the idea that Republican leaders would oppose defeating Obama or stymieing his far-Left agenda because Ted Cruz might get the credit is beyond appalling – and it is the best argument we’ve heard yet for a complete house cleaning in the Capitol Hill Republican leadership.

In a blistering speech on Monday, which we reported and you can read on CHQ through this link, Cruz said that McConnell is “not willing to lift a finger” to take on Planned Parenthood or Iran and said that, despite massive GOP majorities, “Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi remain the de facto leaders in the Senate and the House.” He also accused McConnell of using an “unprecedented procedural trick” to deny Cruz a roll call vote on Monday.

And let’s be clear about who wins and who loses when Mitch McConnell and other establishment Republican Senators, like John Thune and Cruz’s fellow Texan John Cornyn, stifle Ted Cruz’s efforts to roll back Obama’s far-Left agenda.

The winner isn’t Mitch McConnell and his go-along-get-along cabal in the Senate, it is Barack Obama and that means the losers are America’s taxpaying citizens who have seen their liberty eroded and their quality of life destroyed by Obama’s relentless assault on constitutional liberty.

If that isn’t an undebatable justification for new Republican leadership in the Senate we doubt we will ever hear one.

Mitch McConnell must step aside

It is an absolute shame that for the past several years, the "Leadership" meaning McConnell and Boehner have been nothing more than stooges for this president. It begs the issue as to whether or not Obama has pictures of them in compromising activities for which they have been blackmailed into selling America out.

It is time that if we are going to have a chance to reverse the years of garbage these folks have foisted on us by capitulating to Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Barak Obama, that we act now and bring in new and effective leadership to bear. A leadership that will be willing to fight for us and not their cronies and lobbyists in DC. If we do not rapidly change direction and by default, leadership and start preserving and protecting our Constitution and that which we hold most dear, our way of life will be lost forever and we will be vassals of the United Nations and our enemies. Thanks primarily to Obama, McConnell and Boehner!

Unless they know something that we the unwashed masses do not their lack of testicular fortitude is a great mystery. From where we sit, it seems that this is what the "Progressives" want and it seems that it is also what McConnell wants as well. If this is a "Beltway" issue, then perhaps it is time that he is run out of DC along with the rest of the "hacks" and other "low lifes" that have been infesting that cesspool!

For what its worth!

McConnell Boxes Out Cruz

Mitch McConnell is a lowlife of the the highest form when it comes to RINOs. He has lied to the American people and his constituents in Kentucky. In many ways, he is more of a traitor to this country than Obama. I hope he rots in hell when judgement day comes and he is faced with admitting to the Creator of his deeds against this country.

The ruling elite of the senate

Well, this article certainly explains the whole disgusting process. It is hard to believe we as the legal constituents of this country have allowed this nasty process to come into existence. But, now that we know, it is our responsibility to dismantle this unethical, anti constitutional, oligarthy of usurped power to continue its existence. We need to vote this bunch out of power. Vote out their power base. Vote out the senators and the representatives that are enabling this little spider web to exist at all. No supporters for Pelosi, Reid, McConnell, and the speaker and they are finished.

Let us do what we can in 2016. Any good conservatives to run against McCain for his seat? Salmon is backing down after much chatter and obviously no substance. Brewer or anyone else that might be a challenger? Much like his run for prez, does McCain not understand this will result in a vote against him, not for his opposition. Even a dem wit is better than continuing with this liar! At least we will know exactly what the dem is going to do, with McCain it has always been promises made then quickly forgotten once his behind was reelected.
