After 6 terms in the United States senate, long time RINO Orrin Hatch will face his first primary battle after failing to attain the necessary 60% of delegate votes at Saturdays Utah Republican convention.
After falling 32 votes short of the required total on the final ballot, Hatch will take on conservative Republican Dan Liljenquist on June 26th.
In 2010 Hatch watched nervously as Utah colleague Robert Bennett was removed from the Senate in his own primary contest, a victim of having too often sold-out the conservative Republican base.
Concerned with mounting criticism of his own predilection for confirming Marxists to the Supreme Court from his seat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, his perpetual votes to raise the debt ceiling and his vote in favor of TARP, Hatch has spent much of the past 3 years feigning the role of dedicated conservative and champion of the right.
He voted against Supreme Court confirmation for both Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor once the strength of the Tea Party movement had become apparent and trouble appeared on the horizon for Bennett, even though he had earlier helped to confirm Kagan as Solicitor General and put Sotomayor on the federal bench.
He also introduced a Balanced Budget Amendment, though it was of course little more than a gesture as he knew full well it would not come to pass with Obama in the White House.
But this sudden conservative bent has neither fooled nor deterred members of Freedom Works Utah which led the way to Bennetts defeat and spent $700,000 over the past 2 years to rid the Senate of Hatch as well. I despise these people, said Hatch of Freedom Works. These people are not conservatives. Theyre not Republicans. Theyre radical libertarians and Im offended by it,

Buh-bye Mr. Hatch ... watch that door on the way out, hate to have it hit you in the ....
We despise you right back, Orrin. Enjoy your taxpayer funded retirement you chunk of floating offal.
We should defeat ANYONE who has held office for the last 20-30 years
THEY WERE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS MESS!!!!!!!!!!!
A few more to go.
Mr. Hatch...You are not a RINO...you are a JACKASS!! You hate tea party people.... you are a JERK...
In 2009 we formed as the TEA party movement and set out to scare and defeat the Democrats, In 2010 we did that. Now we have to scare and defeat the RINOs which we are doing. News Flash for the RINOs Democrats and their friends in the media: The TEA party movement is not dead, and your laughter is a good thing because it will keep you from hearing us when we come for you.
Lets go out and get the CRAP in Washington, and replace them with people who want smaller government, so we can STOP President ROMNEY from growing the government. (Yes, even thou I hate Romney, I rather have him then the moron who is to the left of Hugo Chavez!!
In 2010, the PA TEA party got rid of demonRAT-rino-demonRAT snarlen arlen sphincter, beat admiral joe stalin, cleared out the gubbernators mansion and fat ed, edd and eddy, got pubbies in the house and senate for the first time that I can remember.
We are not perfect in PA but things are moving in the right direction and because of pubbies regulations and fracking of the Marcellus Shale unemployment in WPA is down to 6.2%/
Of course the greenies are trying their best to demonize everything about the drillers from, dirty air and water, to earthquakes, too much traffic, too many noisy people in the bars, and on and on and on.
We will keep on working and maybe with a new President, keep the house and capture the senate we can turn this thing in the right direction.
Gotta lotta work.
