Orrin Hatch on the Tea Party & Freedom Works:
"Give me a break. These people are not conservatives. They're not republicans. They're radical libertarians and I'm doggone offended by it. I despise these people and I'm not the kind of guy you come in and dump on without gettin' punched in the mouth."

Even though I know no one bothers to look at any of the links I provide, here they are (I have a blog - I know that most people don't click on the links. I've done my work; how much have you done?):

Sen. Orrin Hatch "doggone offended" by "radical libertarians," threatens to punch them (us) in the mouth.

"Hatch took a decided turn to the right in the last few years after his longtime Senate compatriot Robert Bennett was booted at the state GOP convention in 2010.
Barney Keller, a spokesman for the conservative Club for Growth, called it an 'election year conversion' and said Hatch's full record reveals someone who is 'hardly conservative.'
Hatch got a 99 percent rating last year (tied for sixth) from Club for Growth and 97 percent in 2010 (tied for third). Lifetime, though, Hatch has a 78 percent rating with Club for Growth, which has not endorsed anyone in the race. There are 18 currently serving Republican senators with lower lifetime scores, but Keller said that puts Hatch in the bottom third.
Similarly, Hatch's lifetime record with the American Conservative Union is 90 percent. But it was boosted by perfect 100 scores in 2010 and 2011." (Sounds to me like Hatch is trying to appease the Tea Party/FreedomWorks - who he now "despises.")

Orrin Hatch gets angry (extended)
Someone at a town hall meeting asks Hatch a question about why his campaign manager wrote a positive article about FreedomPath (or PAC) - Hatch responds: "I'd like FreedomWorks to get out of here. I'd like all of them to get out of here. I really would." (Yeah, because they don't LIKE you, Orrin.)
Hatch says that he's not going to speak for his campaign manager, "talk to him, he's here," and then the man asking the question says, "well, bring him up here."
Then Orrin "the eliteist snob" says (at about 1:15 into this vid):
"Hey look, who the heck are you? You're an individual citizen who has a right to speak and I've given you that freedom. But let's not be obnoxious about it."
