Democrats are gleefully using House Speaker John Boehner's own words in an effort to garner donations for mid-term elections next year.
21st Century Democrats, which bills itself as "building a progressive majority from the grassroots up since 1985," uses Boehner's proverbial public spanking of tea party opponents of the Congressional budget proposal to take back control of the House.
"Even Speaker Boehner can't hide his disdain for the outside conservative tea party groups," the email reads.
"He actually said that these groups are 'pushing our members in places they don't want to be, and frankly I think they've lost all credibility.' And that's from Speaker Boehner," executive director Jennifer Petty wrote in an email addressed to its members.
Petty added, "These groups controlling the GOP actually opposed the budget deal before it was even released. That's how knee-jerk and out of touch they are."
