Rand Paul to give tea-party group’s response to State of the Union after Rubio delivers GOP’s

posted at 5:08 pm on February 8, 2013 by Allahpundit

Not unusual but still significant. Paul’s delivered his own SOTU rebuttal each year since joining the Senate. The Tea Party Express has sponsored a SOTU rebuttal each year during the same period, with Michele Bachmann and Herman Cain having done the honors in 2011 and 2012, respectively. The news here isn’t that they’re hooking up, it’s that someone of Paul’s national prominence and ambition is upstaging another nationally prominent, ambitious colleague at a moment when the party’s trying to leave him alone in the spotlight.

This rivalry’s been brewing for awhile in various ways but I can’t recall a clearer expression of it than this.

Paul will make his remarks soon after Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Florida, wraps up the GOP response Tuesday night, a Paul spokeswoman confirms to CNN.

“We are giving a voice to the tea party movement when the mainstream media and the Republican establishment wants to write us off as dead,” said Amy Kremer, chairman of the Tea Party Express…

“We expect many of our supporters and many of Rand Paul’s supporters, freedom loving, liberty loving Americans to be there because this is our time to be heard,” Kremer said. “We are proud that Marco Rubio is giving the official Republican Party response because he is a tea party conservative and one of our own. But the Republican Party doesn’t necessarily speak for all conservatives and the tea party movement has its own voice and this is our chance to be heard.”

The temptation is to call Rubio the loser in this deal because he’s being upstaged. Is he, though? He’s been inching away from the tea-party label since literally the moment he became a senator. According to a CNN poll taken shortly after the election, the TP’s favorable rating is 32/50. Part of the reason he’s taken up immigration reform enthusiastically is because it lets him show centrists ahead of 2016 that he’s not the “hardline conservative” or whatever that he was sporadically billed as being circa 2010. Having Paul deliver the “official” tea-party SOTU response only underscores that. You can see both of their 2016 primary strategies shaping up here: Paul will run to the right while he tries to build credibility with centrists and Rubio will run a bit further to the center while he tries to maintain his credibility with the right. (Kremer’s approving mention of him in the excerpt suggests he’s doing okay with that — so far.) The real losers here are Paul Ryan and Jindal, who risk being marginalized if the party starts to get caught up in a Rubio/Paul rivalry.

Exit question: In what meaningful ways will Paul’s “tea party” address sharply differ from Rubio’s official GOP response?

Not true. I voted for Reagan happily. He had one message and one face. I remember when Reagan fired the air traffic controllers, permanently. When our guys took a hit, Libya took it in the jaw. Star Wars was in your face. Mr Gorbachev: ‘Tear Down that Wall’ . He never stepped on the border patrol, like Bush or called Minutemen ‘vigilantes’.

I should add that all the people accusing Rubio of amnesty are missing the point. We have 11 million people here. Deporting them all would offend all of our fiscally conservative sensibilities, and they can’t self deport as Romney hoped they magically would…eski502 on February 8, 2013 at 6:20 PM

It wouldn’t offend my fiscal conservative sensibilities. Crack down on employers. Make them liable for the expenses of illegals they hired, and fine them to the moon for each day they retain them, migrant farm workers aside. You wouldn’t have to deport. They would cease to be hired. The RINOS would have apoplexy if we cut out their illegal work force

I am not doing it a third time no matter how much drivel you peeps spew about electability. We have an “electable” speaker of the house who has a frickin majority and he is using his position to basically vote Democrat. What exactly is the frickin power you talk about if they are all going to vote against the Republican party anyways? I think it is people like you who are knuckleheads.

melle1228 on February 8, 2013 at 8:34 PM

But if your policy is, AFTER the GOP Primary process, to then vote for the Libertarian Party or Constitution Party candidate or even Hillary Clinton (Because you want things to get as bad as possible) then YOU are a knucklehead…I can’t help you, because you’ve decided that Perfect is better than Good Enough.

This is exactly the right approach – in fact the ONLY approach. Try mass deportations and you will easily face race riots if not armed revolt, and that’s assuming Clowngress didn’t cave at the first whimpering wetback who got on TV.

But this is also why it’s so hard to do…the RINOs would have a fit if they had to suddenly pay American workers American wages.

I am really impressed with Rand. The only reservation I have is that he was raised by Ron..

melle1228 on February 8, 2013 at 8:55 PM

Rubio is certainly the loser here.With Rand getting the nod from the Tea Party Express there is an indication that not only is Rubio distancing himself from the Tea Party but that they are rebuking him.With his amnesty crap Rubio is losing the suport of the Tea Party and although they may not win it for a candidate they certainly could lose it for somebody they don’t like.Go ahead Marco, keep kissing Hispanic and RINO butt-even if you win the nomination, the people you need to win the general just won’t show up.Go talk to McClame and Mittens about that!

I agree with the first clause referring to Allahpundit, but the second implies that such does not exist. It is real, and has been real since the rise of the TEA Party in 2010. Repeatedly, the Institutional Republicans have worked to elect Democrats over TEA Party Republicans. Numerous examples in my home state alone. Boehner and McConnell have been working hard to suppress the TEA Party, and the first thing Boehner did when Congress came back after the last election was to purge Conservative/TEA Party members from all fiscal and appropriations committees. His second was to begin a serial surrender to Obama on all fronts, with he and his “leadership” voting against the majority of the Republican caucus and with the Democrats.

And somehow, the TEA Party/Conservative/Patriot Movement are the evil ones for noticing and protesting.

Unless there is a change of leadership in the Republican Party to people less …. collaborationist; it will not matter if the Republicans win the House and the Senate in 2014 [admittedly, that is in the realm of fantasy at this point, even discounting the known election fraud] because there is no indication that there would be any resistance to Obama at all in the absence of that change.

Rand Paul is “trying out” to be the face of the TEA Party/Conservative/Patriot Movement. There is no guarantee that he will end up as such. Nor any sign at this early point in the divorce process of who will. But I think it is fair to say that there is a large percentage of the Conservative Base who are tired of being stabbed in the back repeatedly by Boehner, McConnell, Rove, Cornyn, et. al.

I voted for Obama to crash the system quicker (Willard would have crashed it only a bit slower and conservatives would have received the blame) – clearly – we won’t recover from this debt – hell, the GOP wouldn’t even admit during the campaign that it would cut Medicare and alleged that Obama was actually cutting it more.

Look at the debt you FOOL. Without a seriously determined effort – we’ll be bankrupt within 15 years and NONE of your Ayatollah’s in the GOP establishment have the balls to face that.

Answers aren’t in D.C. … they are in the localities. If you’re not in a red state – then get in one now or else you’re screwed.

You’ve been voting for “Good Enough”Republicans for your entire life – and what do you have to show for it? $17 Trillion in debt and a nation that is on the precipice of complete marxism.

Good Luck with “Good Enough” Republicans. I’m surprised you’re not EMBARRASSED just for coining that stupid name. “Good Enough” … hilarious.

Rubio was NOT a “Tea Party” candidate to begin with. He was a mainstream Florida Republican conservative, Speaker of the Florida House. He was certainly challenging Crist for the Senate nomination from the right, and conservatives flocked to him, along with Tea Party groups and individuals. But Rubio was an established political entity long before the Tea Party ever heard of him.

It is very disappointing, as one who supported and attended Tea Party grassroots events, to see so-called “Tea Party leaders” hijacking the movement. These people elected themselves, they are self-promoters and they are driving a stake in the Tea Party reputation by aligning the name with Rand Paul.

What next? Protesting veterans’ funerals with Westboro Baptist?

I agree. My preference would be, instead of having a tea-party response, we had a GOP response that represented the tea-party. If Rubio is a voice that represents us, why do we need a separate response. If rand Paul have the GOP response, would that be better? Does Rubio not represent the GOP.

An issue I see, is that we keep leaping towards these seeming rock stars, and they disappoint. Honestly, anyone who says their choice for president is anyone other than Palin, doesn’t have much of a case, because all of the others fail to hold their ground. Maybe, Rand will, maybe Chaffetz will. Just a few years ago Charlie Crist was a GOP kingmaker. Some people saw through him, most didn’t. And look at our dear friend Krispy Kreme Chris of New Jersey.

It’s an absolute fact that the Andrew Breitbarts of the cause, are the only hope.

Rubio is certainly the loser here.With Rand getting the nod from the Tea Party Express there is an indication that not only is Rubio distancing himself from the Tea Party but that they are rebuking him.With his amnesty crap Rubio is losing the suport of the Tea Party and although they may not win it for a candidate they certainly could lose it for somebody they don’t like.Go ahead Marco, keep kissing Hispanic and RINO butt-even if you win the nomination, the people you need to win the general just won’t show up.Go talk to McClame and Mittens about that!

That’s OK, Rubio will make up for all the lost votes of old-fashioned American citizens by importing tens of millions of new citizens and their extended families to dilute the voting pool and diminish the influence of real American citizens, and then although the GOP may be dead, Rubio and rubio alone, because of his race, presumably, will be positioned to be the only Republican, uniquely qualified, of leading the GOP out of their own self inflicted wilderness.

Sadly, there is going to be no pleasure in this performance, because the chances of an honest brokering are very small

The way Congress is fast tracking, and feeding propaganda splits about the inevitability of amnesty, and public agreement on amnesty, and Congressional aggreement on amnesty means they are not honorable. They are pulling a fast one, so any speech, what value can it have? They have to keep the Tea Party subdued, while they try to lure the amnesty crowd. I expect lies, and more lies

Adjoran on February 8, 2013 at 9:18 PM

I do agree that many people did hijack various Tea Party movements and organized them under “their” particular umbrella. Now they want to speak for the “Tea Party”. Sadly many local T.P. groups did decide to join some of these organizations. I’ve read a lot about several and believe the Tea Party Express reflects more closely the goals of the movement.

So far Rand Paul has been the only one speaking out against some of these policies. Perhaps the Tea Party Express was the only one able to arrange his speaking. I don’t know the details.

It has been refreshing to hear someone from D.C. speaking out in support of T.P. & Conservative viewpoints tho.

I never thought I’d be saying this – but I will never do it again. If I had to vote today, I’d vote for Rand Paul. The one thing I will never do again is support a party that does not support what is good for our country.

Amjean on February 8, 2013 at 10:42 PM

If we had a Conservative 3rd party, it would position the GOP as the Centrist party, which is really what they’ve become. The MSM would then have two political parties to demonize, which would make their bias even more obvious.

The Conservative party would have no fear of the MSM or the entertainment industry. They could get up in the front of the cameras and do things, like say, raking the MSM and Obama over the coals over the way they exploited a tragedy and libeled Sarah Palin and the Tea Party over Gabby Gifford’s shooting, something which not one single Republican had the balls to do.

The Conservative party could educate the American people about how much the Democrats have strayed from the ideals of the Founders, and the GOP has meekly gone along with this trend. They could make the case that public unions are an inherently immoral fleecing of the taxpayers, another thing that not one single Republican, not even Scott Walker, has the guts to say.

They wouldn’t have to win many elections. They’d just need to have their voices heard. The modern day GOP has become as docile as lab animals. And maybe they’d inspire people to see the GOP as the happy medium.

This is not a bad thing at all. So instead of one response to Obama we get two. So far Rubio and Rand Paul are the two who have stood out to me so far in terms of being potential leaders in the aftermath of election debacle. Now I have disagreements with both of them, or shall I say concerns about their views on other issues but both are light years ahead of the Romney or McCain in terms of conservatism and speaking ability. They both get the national debt must be fixed and our economy stinks.

I think a competition between them will be good and force both to improve their games. People better realize that we need Rubio and Rand Paul because the alternative is Chris Christie who is going to get the 100% of the true RINO vote. A lot of people are called RINOs who don’t really deserve it, but Christie is the authentic real deal RINO.

That article is exactly as I view it. All thru the primary season, I’ve been encouraging folks to forget voting “R” and start voting for their conscience and for those kids. Tilting at windmills? No, just evangelizing that the split will come sooner or later and citing the demise of the Whigs. The monks will always be here because the appeal to our baser nature – it’s harder being “good” and not want to enrich yourself on the backs of the ignorant and enslaved. Parties that fight in bold colors against predatory enablers rise and fall because it is easily infiltrated by conscience posers (rubio chrissy etc) and outright democrats in red like toner, castle, Bennett etc. I take heart that now more than ever more are awake and mad and determined that never again will cronyist misuse their votes like some cheap hookup just to get elected. The gig will be up. Just a matter of when. To whit, in Oklahoma even our two senators have gone DC native. The time for change is now. Goodbye rover and goodbye cotton GOP.

AH_C on February 9, 2013 at 12:24 AM

“He’s been inching away from the tea-party label since literally the moment he became a senator.”

So true.

They want the next Reagan. He wants to be the next McCain.

Ultimately, if you want the Reagan coalition, you have to give up on mass immigration and forced integration, because the implication of those policies is that eventually there will be no more white people. To be Reagan, you need the Reagan coalition. The Reagan coalition was predominantly white, and there is no other, equally conservative coalition on offer.

Or, if you want to be a hero to the mass immigration and amnesty crowd, including the cheap labor fiends at the Wall Street Journal, you need to accept that part of the price of “the browning of America” is that the American electorate will increasingly be made up of people whose culture is socialist.

The Tea Party isn’t about race, and it never was.

But the Democratic Party is, and it has successfully racialized American politics for electoral profit. So that’s the deal as it actually exists.
