    Sharron Angle Caught on Tape Blasting GOP Leaders

    Sharron Angle Caught on Tape Blasting GOP Leaders

    On the tape Angle can be heard, both boasting about her clout in Washington and blasting Republican leaders for their lack of principles.

    “The Republicans have lost their standards, they’ve lost their principles,” Angle says. “Really that’s why the machine in the Republican Party is fighting against me. ...They have never really gone along with lower taxes and less government.”

    But Angle says her grassroots support gives her “juice” with Republican leaders in Washington.

    “I go to Washington, DC and want to see Jim DeMint, he’s right there for me. I want to see Tom Coburn, he’s right there for me. I want to see Mitch McConnell, he’s there,” she says.
    Angle: “I’m not sure I can win” if Ashjian’s in, nat’l GOPers “have lost their principles,” need to “leave me alone”

    At the meeting’s outset, Ashjian seems open to a deal, suggesting if he can get an apology from the Tea Party Express, “we can get on board.” He claims he does not want money, wants the lawsuits about his candidacy to go away – remember those voicemails from GOP lawyer Cleta Mitchell posted elsewhere on my blog suggest she was trying to “settle” something with him. By the end of the meeting, it’s clear this attempted backroom bargain is going nowhere – and I’m not sure Ashjian ever wanted it to.

    There’s a lot more, too, including:

    ----Angle’s open disgust with her own party’s leaders and principles (or lack thereof)

    ----James’ obvious abandonment of Ashjian’s candidacy and insistence that Angle will lose unless he withdraws and that there is still time to get his name off the ballot

    ----Some brief trashing of Sen. John Ensign by Ziser and Ashjian

    ----Ashjian’s claims of physical threats and of being followed

    ----Angle’s agreement with him that both major parties are “corrupt”

    ----Angle’s claim to have taken over the Washoe County Republican Party and having her “guys” in the Clark County GOP

    ----Her promise to deliver to Ashjian “anything I can personally,” including an apology from the Tea Party Express after the election.

    It is a unique and quite entertaining fly-on-the-wall look inside a campaign.
    It's over Johnny.

    Thanks to the teabrains, the Dems will hold the Senate and Reid will stay in charge.
    Well done, regular folks...

    GOOD!!!

    This isn't new... the GOP has shown their hand, and it's a bit pink. Conservatives have been making this claim for a long time. Stop running RINO's and being such panderers.

    Doesn't mean Reid will win... there's something called an election and turnout. Reid has a 1.4% lead... with a month to go... and a brutal president and record to defend.

    It's wide open.

    You may be correct , but it has more to do with demographics than any new Liberal ideas that can actually work.

    Angle, O'Connell in Delaware & Rand Paul in Kentucky are in actuality 2nd stringers - unseasoned - yet they might slide by and Win. Obama does not mind and he surely wants Sarah Palin front & center for the next 24 months. If Everything goes real well for the GOP this time out with TP jubilation - odds are Barry gets another 4 years.

    I know some Conservatives cannot accept this however. They are purists more interested in eliminating other Republicans than making any genuine gains.

    Could be worse. She could win. I'm no fan of Reid and his colleagues, but sometimes you have to chose the lesser of two evils.

    The recording is worth listening to in full despite its poor quality. It suggests that -- at least for the purposes of this conversation with a Tea Party figure -- behind the facade of a real grassroots outsider who hates the organized Republican Party is ... a real grassroots outsider who hates the organized Republican Party.

    ...

    Angle emerges as a very reluctant Republican, one who speaks with pleasure of the "moaning and groaning and weeping and gnashing" that greeted her victory among Washington Republicans. And the degree to which her and her allies are going to be directing their demands for change at the Republican party itself shouldn't be underestimated.
    Tell us what you really think, Ms. Angle - Ben Smith - POLITICO.com

    In what alternate universe is this a bad thing?
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Reid is extremely moderate (although far-righties won't see him as such) and does solid job or corralling the progressives.

    Obama has dug himself such a huge hole, and has a record he has to defend... he can't run and hide, won't get away with Yes We Can, Hope, Change and We are the ones we are waiting for...

    He'll have more on his hands than Palin... he'll be busy running away from himself.

    I hope someone challenges the incompetent for the Dem nomination; won't happen, but might be their saving grace.
