Posted on 05/09/2012 7:08:21 AM PDT by Freestate316
Now that Indiana RINO Richard Lugar will be vacating his Senate office, what other Senate RINOs would we most love to see follow him? I nominate John McCain.
If you didn’t already elect an alternate in the Primary, it’s a little late now.
Get behind Crus in TX.
Gotta keep Mourdock funded for the General Election.
There’s 23 Senate Dems up for replacement this year.
Let’s get off of our butts and do something positive!
Peeing on fellow FReeper’s legs doesn’t count.
Get behind CRUZ in TX.
A RINO is a Democrat. They infiltrate or use the GOP in order to stymie Conservatism and to advance the leftist agenda. There is no such element of DINOs, since the Democrats would never allow their advancement as the Republicans do. Look at how far the execrable Socialist Slick Willard has been allowed to get. Can you imagine a Conservative getting the Democrat nomination for President ? That hasn’t happened since 1924.
Martinez, Voinovich, Bond and Gregg are already gone, replaced by more conservative members.
Snowe and Lugar are out, at least one to be replaced by a real conservative.
Kyl is out and Hatch may be. We’re making good progress!
Some should have been ‘kicked upstairs’. Lugar would have been a decent sec of state, Gramnesty a decent atty general, and Hatch a decent supreme ct nominee during Reagans term(after Bork). No guarantee how they would have performed but conformation hearings would be easier with senate collegues.
We had a shot at getting rid of McCain in 2010, but the Establishment (including Romney and Jan Brewer) and Palin rallied around him over JD Hayworth. A little like closing the barn door after the horse’s a$$ escaped.
Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe both of Maine .
Hayworth was a fundamentally flawed candidate. When you run a good candidate like Mourdock or Rubio you can win.
I don’t have a problem with that either, Reid, Pelosi, Hoyer and the entire CBC except Adam West are at the top of that list.
Dudd Gregg is working for Goldman Sachs.
Yes, we’ll see to it that Steelman beats McCaskill here in Missouri.
If Boehner and McConnel both go, that would be worth it just to shake the deadwood out of the Leaderships of both Houses. Other obstructionists in Leadership should also go, like Cantor.
Mary Landrieu is a Democrat.
It's certain that Benedict Arnold wasn't a politician, and that's what led to his downfall ... to basatard politicans that refused to reimburse his personal battle-command expenses because he'd lost his records when his ship sank in the American naval victory at Valcour Bay, a victory that delayed a British invasion from Canada for a full year.
Arnold's achievements were legendary. Read about them in Kenneth Roberts books: "Arundel" and "Rabble in Arms." In particular, Arnold's win at Lexington, where he disobeyed orders (to stay in the command area) and left the hilltop command center to lead men in a bloody and decisive counter-attack against the British ... where Arnold was badly wounded and refused to allow surgeons to remove his leg, and came out crippled for life.
Today's West Point museum has an area dedicated to Arnold's battle ground exploits at Lexington. America wouldn't exist today had the British won that battle.
The real bastards in America in those days (and now) were politicians in Congress.
Indeed, these old hysterical corrupt RINO hacks must feel the fire of hell permanently condemning them since they are so locked and stupid in their positions blocking us access. This is typical of evil’s knee jerk weak and pleady demonic desperate reactions.
Yes! A little prevention goes a long way. Keep Dewhurst out.
I just saw a video this morning of him and all the therapy he’s undergoing as a result of the stroke he had.
One is retiring this year. Look for it to flip D.
Amen brother. Texas has given us Kaye Bailey Hutchinson who has been brain dead for years. John Cornyn who is a RINO of the tallest order; and now they’ve served up David Dewhurst who is an empty suit and a career politician. Ted Cruz is the only real conservative running in Texas. I hope we can get him elected.
Some folks wonder candidate Rick Santorum voted YES on Sotomayor when Clinton nominated her to the 2nd Circuit.
Focus on younger guys closer to their election.”
Add Cornyn to the list with Graham who is also two years to the primary. We have a chance to finally have at least one Conservative Senator in Texas this year to replace Hutchinson if people will rally behind and vote for Cruz.
Yes, I realized my error once the caffeine kicked in.
You're exactly correct on both counts.For example...I just checked the Americans For Democratic Action website (the ADA being an openly Communist "progressive" organization).They rate,on a yearly basis,members of Congress on their revolutionary zeal.In 2010,both Snowe and Collins got a 40% rating (100% meaning "pure revolutionary").In the same year,both of RI's Senators (RI being the home of Lincoln Chaffee) got a 90% rating.In other words,in some parts of the country one must settle,for the time being at least,for less than perfect candidates.
OTOH,there's no excuse that I can think of for a Graham coming out of South Carolina.Vermont? Maybe. But not South Carolina.
Absolutely must replace both Tennessee senators. The ONLY reason I voted for Alexander last time was the threat of a 60 vote majority for Obama. I don’t care any more. I will vote for a democrat over either of those two again.
Man, 67 posts to get to one of the top 5. But I'm glad someone weighed in. And there's one and only one woman who should commit to replacing her.
But I'm completely down with replacing her, with Bobby. He would make a good Senator.
I don’t know if it’s true in Texas or not, but in SC, it’s so easy to win as a Republican, that many political animals that are not necessarily conservative become Republicans in this state. That leads to the country club GOP set that opposed Nikki Haley and its the same base Graham started playing too after being a more conservative House member. The ease of winning sort of becomes a detriment in a sense.
Too bad we can’t have two Jim DeMints’ from SC. (And Texas and Georgia for that matter).
anybody listed as a supporter on the web sites for RMSP Main Streeters or It’s My Party or whatever claiming to be the cat’s meow for the GoP.. Vote them out.
Texas is really a mixed bag. Sanctuary cities - Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Austin - are becoming bastions of liberalism and growing lots of RINO’s, particularly Austin which on occasion is referred to as the San Francisco of Texas. Suburbs and rural areas tend Conservative and there are lots of them but the population in these areas is smaller and cannot overcome the big cities. Lots of Hispanics which would seem to vote primarily Democrat.
And then, of course, we have Sheila Jackson Lee and Malcolm X who is our version of Sharpton/Jackson. Registered Democrats outnumber registered Republicans. It has been said that had even a somewhat small portion of them who voted for BO in 2008 shown up to vote for the Democrat Governor candidate in our last election, Rick Perry would not have been successful. We are one of the fastest growing states and unfortunately too many of our new citizens tend to bring their liberal leanings with them.
And we now have a new problem - hundreds of unaccompanied children, some as young as 8 or 9, are coming across the border from countries south of us in a steady stream. Yet another problem the Federal government won’t admit is happening or provide any assistance. Lots of medical and educational problems with this batch. Our two RINO Senators are again AWOL.
Yes, pretty much everyone affiliated with http://www.republicanmainstreet.org/members/
Their favorite game is playing Rotating RINOs to advance liberalism.
Also, those affiliated with No Labels that perpetuate the lie that Giffords’ shooting was because of conservative rhetoric.
yup, morphic-like orgs that reek of those prone to chameleonic behaviour .. they can turn green,, yellow, even red.. on a dime. yours. ;-)
Seriously, I would say 95% of the so called republicans are rino’s and are not true conservatives! The easier question would be which ones are not rino’s and are true conservatives.Betcha it would be a short list and you could probably count them on one hand, maybe two.
Which republicans are trying hard to protect our borders, our language and our culture?
Which republicans are pushing strong Ronald Reagan conservatism?
Shouldn’t there be republicans speaking out against obama and the left in congress almost on a daily basis? All I hear is crickets chirping!!!!
Unfortunately, you’re right. Those of us on the right have become too used to compromising on the lesser of two evils. We haven’t had a candidate who represented our values since 1984.
