Chamber of Commerce: Rand Paul was our “secret weapon” in “beating” the Tea Party   November 19, 2014

It’s weird how all the women Bill Cosby raped also happen to be ugly and insane

Scott Reed ran Bob Dole’s 1996 presidential campaign, and now serves as senior political strategist for the U.S. Chamber of Lobbyists.

On Tuesday, Reed appeared on a WSJ panel to gloat about how he and the GOP establishment defeated the Tea Party…

The Tea Party…recruited people that were not capable of being even in the freshman league of this business, and that’s why we were able to beat them, and that’s why they quieted down.

[Rand Paul] was a real secret weapon for us in this last election…where there were libertarians on the move, he was able to go in there and nullify that.

Paul worked closely with the Chamber of Lobbyists during the 2014 cycle…

Last November, Paul ally and soon-to-be Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called the Tea Party “bullies” that needed a punch in the nose.

In March, he vowed to crush the Tea Party.

Done and done.
