Civility: DCCC Executive Director Calls GOP “Foaming-at-the-Mouth, 1%-Loving Wing-nuts”

Posted by on Nov 29, 2011 at 10:58 am

I guess they won’t be practicing the civility they keep calling for. Every email we get from these folks always includes the requisite swipe at the “Tea Party Republicans,” but geez, isn’t this just a wee bit over the top?

It starts tomorrow at Midnight.

That’s when the two major political parties have to report out fundraising totals for November, and we enter the final countdown to re-elect President Obama and take back our House majority.

This is the first FEC deadline since the Republicans’ latest attempt to torpedo the economy and since we passed the one-year-out to the election mark.

We’re just $84,120 short of our grassroots goal before the November 30th deadline and your support can help put us over the top. The media, political pundits and our opponents will scour our fundraising totals to see if we have the momentum and the fight to win in November. Help us have a powerful showing.

We’re running neck and neck with the Tea Party Republicans’ fundraising totals for 2011. Their primary candidates have been strutting around puffed up like peacocks claiming they’ve got the momentum to defeat President Obama and control Congress next year.

Let’s prove them wrong tomorrow. Let’s show these foaming-at-the-mouth, 1%-loving wing-nuts that grassroots Democrats are fired up and ready to go.

Midnight tomorrow is when we begin the march to victory in November for President Obama and House Democrats.

Thank you,

Robby

    Politically incorrect? Yes. But, minus the “wingnuts” epithet, she is right that the Tea Party supports the 1%.

    I left the Tea Party when it decided to support extending tax cuts for the already rich but not extending the payroll tax holiday for the middle class. Unbelievable.

    exTPer – The Tea Party is all about lower taxes and cutting runaway spending by the government. WE are worried about half the country living off the government teat. WE are tired of the hypocrites in Washington who think “For me, but not for thee” when it comes to accepting Obummercare. WE care about following the Constitution. WE care about a 15 trillion dollar debt due to entitlements. WE ARE the middle class. And YOU are not, nor ever have been, a Tea Party supporter. YOU are a troll.

    Yeah! How dare those rich people keep their money! It’s our money! They used roads and stuff!

    Also, it’s not fair that we have to pay our own social insurance when other people are already rich. Let them pay for it. If they don’t like it, they can stop earning so much money.

    @exTPer – Actually, the Tea Party is for the **100%**; it’s sad that you feel the need to attack segments of the population, 1% at a time.

  5. exTPer on 29/29/11 at 4:46 pm

    Not sure any of you actually read my comment or if you’re just trolling, but I specified why I left the Tea Party.

    Hint: it’s because it doesn’t want to cut payroll taxes for the middle class. It really is unbelievable that they would stand against a tax cut just because Obama beat them to the punch.

    On this issue there should be zero daylight between the president and the Tea Party. Until the Tea Party gets its act together and supports tax cuts not just for investors but for those of us who are struggling to make ends meet, underwater in our homes, and running out of hope and unemployment insurance, I will stay as far away from this elite group of charlatans as I can.

    Oh and I do support rebate checks to everyone, not just the poor and not just the wealthy. I remember a time when conservatives actually thought it would be a great thing if half the country paid no income taxes.

    I want a Tea Party that wants to make it less burdensome on Joe Sixpack, not more.

    And therein the moby outs itself.

    Payroll tax affects only those who are working, not welfare mobys who are lying their way onto unemployment insurance.

    Furthermore, those with money are not just “investors”; they are working people who put in long hours and a great deal of time on their education to make what they do.

    You’re just flinging Obama Party class warfare rhetoric and lies, just like your massa Robby Mook. You belong to the Obama Party, and you’re a pile of welfare trash, just like your raping, vandalizing OWS Obama supporters.

    @ North Dallas Thirty

    And you’re just a charlatan like the rest of the pro-tax and spend Tea Partiers.

  9. exTPer on 29/29/11 at 5:14 pm

    Also, payroll taxes affect a lot more than just investors.

    Why should only the investor class be subject to tax cuts but not the rest of us, who last I checked work just as hard or even harder?

    The Tea Party is sadly beholden to Wall Street, not Main Street. The comments disparaging me as a welfare bum only prove how out of touch with middle America and addicted to big government the Tea Party has become.

    ExTPer,

    Magic eightball say……… Neither you nor any of your Ronulian buddies were ever part of the TEA Party Movement.

    No, those comments just show that folks here aren’t as stupid as you hoped they were and as such they see right through your lies.

    Xtpr – I thought payroll taxes were matched by the employer and sent to the state to cover unemployment checks. I’m no math genius, but how can payroll taxes be cut at the same time they’re mandating 99 week eligibility?

  13. exTPer on 30/30/11 at 12:13 am

    Thankfully, tonight Boehner and McConnell are finally indicating the GOP will acquiesce to those of us who are not in the Tea Party but are demanding an extension of the payroll tax cut.

    It shouldn’t have come to that; the GOP should have been out in front loudly supporting a permanent payroll tax holiday.

    Regardless, I am glad my voice has been heard.
