Sen. Mitch McConnell’s primary challenger Matt Bevin speaks out about the “Kentucky Kickback”

We all know how much Glenn would like to see Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) voted out of the Senate next year, and on radio this morning Glenn interviewed Sen. McConnell’s challenger in the Republican primary, Matt Bevin. As far as Glenn is concerned, Sen. McConnell is finished – especially after the $2 billion “Kentucky Kickback” he received in exchange for shutting down TEA Party conservatives and handing the President yet another victory (and the American people yet another defeat).

“Matt Bevin is on with us. I hope to be saying the good senator Matt Bevin from the state of Kentucky. He is running against Mitch McConnell. And we have had him on the program once before. We liked him. We thought we would have him on again. Welcome to the program, Matt,” Glenn said. “So can you tell me any thoughts on this $2 billion, you know, gift that Mitch McConnell definitely didn’t have anything to do with?”

“When you have Dianne Feinstein coming out and running interference for you as your cover, something smells a little fishy there. Here’s what I’ll say. This was specific to a project, the Olmstead Lock and Dam project, which is in Southwestern Kentucky, and it’s a critical project. It is a project that needs to be completed, but the methodology for this 2 billion, 2.8 billion just stinks,” Matt said. “This is not how funding is supposed to occur. Sweeteners, kickbacks, whatever you want to call them, should not be a part of these sort of processes where we are saving the American people supposedly from some manufactured crisis, and in order to make that happen under the cover of darkness, favors at the taxpayers’ expense get bandied about.”

Matt does not have an easy primary fight in front of him. He will be going up against the well-stocked campaign war chest of Sen. McConnell, as well as the wrath of the establishment GOP. But Matt recently received a very important endorsement that should provide a bit of relief.

“I just within the last hour received the endorsement of the Senate Conservatives Fund. This is Jim DeMint’s old group. It’s now run by a gentleman by the name of Matt Hoskins, and I cannot tell you how exciting this is,” Matt said. “The Madison Project was my only other significant national endorsement and so this is a very significant additional endorsement. I’m very grateful.”

While it is easy to believe that anyone would be better than Sen. McConnell, Glenn asked Matt to explain to the American people what his plan will be if he is elected.

“We have got to wean people from this idea of free lunches, and it’s free lunches at a scale the likes of which literally nobody can afford to pay for because there is no free lunch. And what we’re doing is we’re sticking it to people, this artificially deflating interest rates and keeping them artificially low is coming at the expense of those people who saved their money, who did things the right way, who expected to get 4, 5, 6% perhaps and are now getting 0.1 or 0.2%,” Matt explained. “And we’re doing it in order to accommodate the ballooning debt and the interest payments and we’re sticking it to the people who have been responsible in order to cover for those who have not. What we need to tell the American people is that the party’s over. And while that is painful to hear, austerity, we have no idea what this is going to look like if we don’t start walking that dog back soon.”

“I will hold out as a Republican. Even in the minority, I would just hold firm,” he continued. “I would unite the caucus as to the absolute degree. The liberals, I must say, are fantastic even at uniting when they disagree behind something.”

Glenn decided to play devil’s advocate for a moment and asked Matt to consider what he would do when faced with a situation where everything is being blamed on him and his reelection chances are endangered.

“That has been working brilliantly thus far, which is why the Republicans have been folding like sock puppets. You know, it’s remarkable,” Matt said. “But we have got to stop spending. 40 cents of every dollar, Glenn, that we are spending in this country is still borrowed money. Plus, we’re twisting, whether we’re quantitatively easing or twisting, we have some cute little name for what we’re doing in terms of printing money. And we cannot continue down this path. We must hold firm for cessation of increase in debt. We cannot dig deeper into a hole that’s already questionable as to whether future generations will be able to climb out of.”

“Thank you very much. I appreciate it, and we’ll talk again,” Glenn said. “MattBevin.com. Running against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, who must go.”

    McConnell is one of many who need to go: all of the Democrat Socialists, Vichy Republicans and RINO’s need to be booted across the board.

    “The liberals, I must say, are fantastic even at uniting when they disagree behind something.”

    And the right are equally fantastic at self-defeating purges.

    Having already purged blacks, gays, muslims, hispanics, young people, non-christians, and half the women…
    the right now decides it must purge even some of its old white men. LOL!

    It’s anorexia.
    “Still not skinny enough…must lose more! MUST LOSE MORE!”

    You are complete fool. Anyone with half a brain knows where racism starts and ends, with the Democraps. From the democraps who didn’t want to give up their slaves to the Democraps who were against the civil rights movement. I have seen a lot of dumb people post here, but you are rapidly going to the head of the line.

    Personally. I look forward to helping to see McConnell not only loses his current job in government, but that he never works in government again; not even in jobs such as dog catcher, ditch digger or even trash collector. Once a sell out always a sell out. There’s far too many like him in government now. It’s well past time to totally clean house throughout all of government; but especially with the RINOs, all of the Senate and the White House; with no possibility of “any of them ever” returning to any kind of government work anywhere within this nation. No further damage by these criminals (my personal opinion), ever.

    So then you know what you need to do.

    You need to turn voting booths into time machines. That way, when a black person steps into one, you can send them back to the 1960′s, or even the 1850′s…back to a time when the democrats were the bad guys!
    Do that, and you can get the black vote!!

    I can’t believe that no one ever realized this before.
    Why does the right need guys like Ted Cruz when they’ve got guys like you—guys not only able to think outside the box, but think outside the century!

    no only communists they can go to your party the randians should never have been purged you call honorable men like clarence thomas and Ted Cruz traitors to their race just because they believe in the ideals of this country instead of joining the herd like people like Colin Powell a good black in your opinion. Young people are mostly marxists these days because of the education system and media. Also because of the cowards who refuse to fight and say the truth the rinos should be disposed. Unfortunately their are two types of hispanic voters those who are marxist bastards which I hate and people who vote for free stuff the mass majority though they dont know it is paid on credit and that would run out soon because of the commies in the media your friends

    I read an attack from McConnell’s camp that Matt Bevin is a New England bailout recipient who says he attended MIT. What about this?

    There is a third type of Hispanic voter: the type who knows how to use commas and periods properly.

  • greywolfrs

    Hey stupid, if you had any critical thinking skills what-so-ever, you would know exactly what I was saying. Hey stupid, Up until a couple of years ago, when he died, what party was Robert KKK Byrd a part of? Oh, that’s right, he was a Democrap.

    Here’s an even better example. The Federalists were for big central government and they turned into what party? That’s right Democraps. Even today, which party is FOR big government? That’s right, the Democraps, as they just put Obamaocare into the mix. Which party is FOR single payer, which would be the largest take over the government has ever done? Oh, that;s right, the Democraps.

    You stupid M F ers always try to claim that the roles have been reversed, yet continue to keep the slaves on the plantation with entitlements.

    As I stated before, you have got to be one of the dumbest M F ers in the country. Do the whole country a favor and off yourself, dipshit.

    My, my…so testy and grumpy.
    Very cute.

    But if you REALLY believe the democrats are the racist party, then all you have to do is convince blacks of that.
    I’ll watch while you do that. Because I suspect it will be most entertaining. :)

  • greywolfrs

    I’m not testy or grumpy, nice assumption, but as usual it’s wrong.

    I don’t need to convince them of anything, you dolts will have them in the middle of another civil war, then they will see all on their own. On another note, I noticed you didn’t try to disprove what I said, imagine that. Dipshits like you are hilarious.

    Does anyone thing that Matt Blevns is anything more than a punchline?

    I don’t even plan to vote in the Primary, but Matt Bevin has shown to me personally to be a man of low integrity and someone who doesn’t deserve the votes of anyone in the Commonwealth. The man took up an ENTIRE section at a restaurant with his staff and donors and didn’t even bother to take care of the servers. One of the servers directly involved was a kid who was trying to pay his way through college and didn’t make anything on a busy weekend night because this millionaire and his donors couldn’t bother to tip and half of em just got drinks and demanded to be treated like they were important. His wife treated my Fiance rudely and after attempting to contact his campaign about the incident I was brushed off and it didn’t matter. BEVIN IS BAD FOR KENTUCKY!
