Editorial: Is Bullying Bentivolio a Wise Move?

Did you hear the AARP advertisement on the Frank Beckmann show on WJR Detroit today, threatening seniors that they are about to lose Social Security and Medicare benefits due to cuts to spending in D.C.? The ad ends by inviting listeners to call an 800 number and tell a single person, Kerry Bentivolio, to stop attacking seniors and their benefits – strange?

Did you read the national news article, “Who’s behind GOP’s rush to the right?” by Doyle McManus, a Los Angeles Times columnist?

McManus writes, “But they (DeMint and Heritage Action) should expect some push-back. Some of those K Street Republican lobbyists told me last week that they are already organizing to support endangered incumbents, including McConnell, and plan to do some “primarying” of their own, funding moderate GOP challengers against several tea-party members of the House, including two Michigan Republicans, Justin Amash and Kerry Bentivolio.”

Only two names in a national article, and one is Kerry Bentivolio – odd co-incidence? What’s going on here?

Could it be that K Street Republican lobbyists, with money from large GOP donors, like Bentivolio’s announced GOP challenger, David Trott, are funding a campaign with national co-conspirators like AARP to discredit one of the few leaders in D.C. who:

Wouldn’t the GOP national and Michigan money be better spent attacking the AARP-favored campaign of avowed leftist Gary Peters for the U.S. Senate from Michigan?

Tea Party activists, libertarians, and grassroots Republicans are uniting more every day in the anger they feel toward the progressive GOP establishment; they are hardening their commitment to stand with statesmen like Kerry Bentivolio, Justin Amash, and Ted Cruz as part of the emerging Cruz Coalition.

  1. Congratulations to Dick Manasseri for an insightful article! When I hear someone referring to the “Cruz Coalition,” I cannot but wonder if this is the beginning of a final split between the Tea Party members of Congress and the mainstream GOP. My prediction has been that if the “establishment Republicans” do not embrace the Tea Party, and attract Libertarians, unaffiliated conservatives, and others on the right of centre, then they are making their party more and more “progressively” irrelevant, (pun intended). WARNING: If the GOP leadership continues to treat the Tea Party and other Constitutional conservatives and traditionalists with the current level of disregard, (and sometimes outright disdain), that they have far too often shown them, then the “Cruz Coalition” may end up removing itself altogether from the Republican camp. Does anyone besides me think that the term “Cruz Coalition” may be becoming synonymous with the term “third party?”

  2. Hi! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
    I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had
    problems with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.
    I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a
    good platform.

  3. Let’s not forget that AARP was a huge proponent of Obamacare in spite of its members opposing it 15 to 1. Then they had the gall to roll out the “You’ve Earned a Say” campaign.
