We're more fortunate over here in Jim Greenwood's old seat, where "moderate" GOP incumbent Mike Fitzpatrick was edged out by Patrick Murphy in 2006 thanks to a sliver of Philadelphia which was gerrymandered into the district. Incredibly, Murphy didn't even win Bucks County!

This year the GOP is running a terrific candidate by the name of Tom Manion. As long as all those Bucks County conservatives who sat it out in 2006 come out to the polls this year, that liberal scumbag kid Murphy could find himself dumped. Here's hoping...

Surely this would send chills up and down the spine of the far left demowits if fat boy where to lose to a bright young military Republican.

It would be great to see an ex Marine and fired Admiral kicked out of their cozy positions. It would be a win for all America.

I will have to dig into my pocket book to support Bill Russel and Craig Williams. I to taint exactly rich but feel we have to give them support. The ex Marine and fired Admiral must get the boot. They are poor examples of supporting our military in any real sense.

Sestak did not sign on to the Congressional pro-Heller amicus. He also did not sign on to the pro-DC amicus. That means he is unwilling to take a stand on the Second Amendment. That means he is a worthless piece of @#%$#!

When Adm. Mullen took over as CNO, his first act was to relieve — fire — Sestak from his position in the Pentagon. Sestak then retired as a Rear Adm., as he hadn’t been in the Vice Adm. slot long enough to qualify for retirement at that grade. That didn’t stop his Clinton Cronies from boosting “Vice Admiral Sestak” against Curt Weldon; and you know the main reason that he ran against Curt and the investigation that resulted in his defeat was to shut down the Able Danger investigation.

Yes, I want to see that scumbag gone too, but I fear that the local GOP won’t take the necessary stand or push the national GOP to help, so it’s up to us in the grassroots to push as we can.

Sestak is a bought-and-paid-for socialist, so you know he won’t support freedom.

Also sent a contribution to him today. You might want to take a look at Allen West, District 22 Congress in Florida. Happened onto a very small rally for him when we were vacationing down there earlier this year. He and his wife talked with me for more than half an hour. Sent him contribution in June. It’s all uphill for him. Recd very nice personally signed thank you letter recalling my name and our previous conversation-what a response from someone I only met once and for whom I can’t vote because I’m in another state!

I’m well aware of the Soros’ connections in taking out Welden. I grew up in that district and am really upset to see how it has turned from Red to blue. Of course the RINO’S in the district are corrupt and self-serving.

Ugh. Reading that again, I cannot believe that buffoon is still in Congress. What the h-e double hockeysticks is wrong with those people in his district?

Lord, have mercy on us!

I also sent a contribution to Allen West.

This year, I’ve decided to donate to individual candidates. The RNC will no longer get my money because I’m sick of their RINOS.

“We need to have people who love this country in office, and people who want to destroy it out of office.”

Thanks for the PING.

THIS is what people need to realize. Nothing changes unless we start one OFFICE at a time with these pukes. Even if we lose the White House (we won’t) it will be WONDERFUL when the likes of Murtha, that puke Kerry and fat Teddy are finally GONE, GONE, GONE! :)

(I’ll work on ridding us of Herb Kohl, Tammy Baldwin and Russ Feingold, LOL!)

Act locally. It’s our only chance. This would be the PERFECT year for conservative military-types to step up to the plate and run for local, state and federal offices. It’s a perfect storm of discontent brewing right now amongst conservatives.

AND, if we got lots of retired military-types elected to office, the ‘Rats would appear to be even loonier than they already are with their hair pulling and gnashing of teeth, LOL! :)

Nor am I contributing to NRC. Send my form letter back with their form letters I receive telling them that - but I keep getting more mail from them. Doesn’t appear anyone there reads their mail either or pays attention to what I say. Surprise surprise!

I have a check going out to Tom Manion this morning.

Patrick Murphy is a detestable little smear of slime who has spent the last two years snuggling up to Pelosi and Murtha, after running as a "Blue Dog".

He has taken considerable money from Obama's HopeFund PAC, and has obligingly endorsed Obama.

Murphy is billed as the only Iraq vet in congress, which is true. But in fact, he only served as a lawyer for the army. He fought the Surge tooth and nail.

Here's a clip of babbler Murphy stammering through a Hardball interview, refusing to answer whether he would have voted for going into Iraq. There was a more complete version of this on YouTube that seems to have disappeared. Matthews tried several times unsuccessfully to get him to answer the question, and once he realized he wasn't going to get an answer, he went right back to his normal ass-kissing mode.

I have the same problem. I keep getting letters beginning with:

“Have you left the Republican Party?”

My answers is, NO! The Republican Party has left me!

Another Murtha prime cut is the National Drug Intelligence Center. According to the agency the NDIC was created by Congress in 1991 to develop better strategic intelligence for the nation’s remarkably unsuccessful counter-drug policymakers in the U.S. Department of Justice.

Its 300 employees--including 120 researchers--needed $509 million last year to continue investigating the country’s drug problems despite annual White House efforts to shut it down as “wasteful and unnecessary,” government documents show.

$1.69 million per employed person? Where's the graft going? It's certainly not being spent on what it was "earmarked" for. That group should have a rough budget of $40-60 million at most. Maybe if they had some very expensive equipment, up to 70 mil. The rest is being siphoned off for someone's pockets.

Let's hope and pray that Col Russell can knock Murtha out of the box and that Craig Williams will sink cut and run Joe Sestak.
