Non-Violent Coup, Part of Larger Intolerant GOP Narrative
This is a damn outrage, a disgusted David Brooks, the faux conservative columnist for the New York Times, declared on Sundays Meet the Press reacting to Republican Senator Bob Bennetts loss Saturday at Utahs Republican convention which chose two others to compete in a June primary for the seat. Brooks fretted he was punished for being a good conservative who was trying to get things done by bravely working with Democrats on health care and supporting TARP. Now, he repeated, he's losing his career over that. And it's just a damn outrage.

If Brooks hates it, this must be a GOOD thing!
Hey Brooks it is about the people taking control. The people are tired of the “insiders” calling the shots. Take your whining and go sit in the corner.
Losing his career?Public service was never intended to be a career.
Mr. Brooks, may you and the so-called newspaper you work for end up at the business end of either a poodle or a parakeet.
LOL! Tough nuts, ain’t it?
LOL... love the Waaahmbulance pic.
Was watching Fox news this morning and a Bennett interview... the pathetic loser was crying on camera. How sad. He ONLY got to serve far too long. Now what is that poor man going to do with himself? Poor poor man. Take your lifelong health and pension and go buy yourself a fishing pole.
You are either a Reagan conservative or F. U.
Damn outrage indeed. He should have been unplugged by the Utah Party six years ago.
Under title of "The future of democracy in America" at UVA's web site containing quotations of Thomas Jefferson, appears this statement from Mr. Jefferson:
"If we find our government in all its branches rushing headlong... into the arms of monarchy, if we find them violating our dearest rights, the trial by jury, the freedom of the press, the freedom of opinion, civil or religious, or opening on our peace of mind or personal safety the sluices of terrorism, if we see them raising standing armies, when the absence of all other danger points to these as the sole objects on which they are to be employed, then indeed let us withdraw and call the nation to its tents. But while our functionaries are wise, and honest, and vigilant, let us move compactly under their guidance, and we have nothing to fear. . . ." --Thomas Jefferson to William Duane, 1811. ME 13:29
How could Jefferson envision "our government . . . rushing headlong . . . ." or, "violating our dearest rights, the trial by jury, the freedom of the press, the freedom of opinion, civil or religious, or opening on our peace of mind or personal safety the sluices of terrorism"?
Certainly, America's Founders intended "the People" to "watch over" (Jefferson) their elected officials, and recall them when they did not do "the People's" will.
So unless I missed something, the results of our time-honored process to decide party nominations are “a damn outrage”??? Ha ha ha hahahahahaha.....
The “outrage” is that these peope think they’re entitled to a lifetime “career” on our backs.
Piss on all of them. They can all go to hell.
the faux conservative columnist for the New York Times
OXIMORON? OR JUST PLAIN MORON...........OR BOTH
This is not the coup. The coup began in 2008, and the enemy has been consolidating power since then.
This is the counter-coup.
Hey Bob,rejection hurts don’t it.Bet it doesn’t hurt as much as the realization that millions of people in this country have that their grandchildren will struggle to pay off the debts that you and your pals saddled them with.So Bob just fade away gracefully.
The Tea Partiers, that's who!
If this is how Brooks feels, I wonder how he’ll feel this November??? If Palin runs/wins in 2012, Brook’s head will explode.
...lots of duct tape needed here ;)
Anyone who “bravely” works with the demo-rats should expect the outcome they deserve.
And it's just a damn outrage.
Bob chose poorly, now didn't he David?
And, btw, David, 'we the people' don't elect politicians "to a career!"
What a concept, eh David?
And, get ready for some more outrage, you moron.
Now this RINO can bravely find a new career, one in which he does less damage to the free world than he did with TARP.
Oh, that is just sedition and anti-govt. bombast incitement to riot, etc. MSM haven't let out a peep that I have heard. It is all about that awful Tea Party and the danger from them.
These people are so irrelevant to more than half the population, sealed in their own little bubble.
BLESSED BE THE NAME OF THE LORD.
BLESSED BE THE WORD OF THE LORD.
[one of the things I say to avoid cheering when an enemy falls]
bravely working with Democrats on health care and supporting TARP
I want to primary David Brooks.
Dave knows that. But he believes that the people are wrong.
The ruling class knows better. And he's one of them...
I couldn’t get the pic to post, so I could only post the link.
Hey Brooks! Why don’t you STFU!!!
So the bum was crying about joining the ranks of the unemployed? It’s about time he grew up and got a real job and you can bet his “real” job will be as a lobbyist.
Ending his career? I also heard Bennett stating that this was the end of his career. They do not get it: We are tired of “career” politicians.
“If Brooks hates it, this must be a GOOD thing!”
Definitely, Juan Williams was almost apoplectic this morning. So it has to be good.
Let’s keep it this way. We all saw what happens when the Times selects GOP candidtates — witness McCain ‘08.
Hey Brooks, join the unemployment line you Socialist Douchebag nitwit. Waterboard this idiot.
You know what drives these RINOs and Leftists crazy? The fact that the TEA Party has no one leader!
This fact makes us a very politically dangerous opponent to these Statists!
Get used used to Statists and RINOs! We’re not going anywhere...EVER! We’re everywhere!
Why is it that most of us poor schlubs are told not to bother thinking about a career after the age of 55, and we should pity this poor geezer that doesn’t get to extend his career from age 76 to age 82?
Okay, a 76 year old politician wants to go for his 4th 6th year term, after promising to serve only two terms. Bennett’s been in their 18 years and his voters haven’t seen any improvement in the Federal Government in that time. He’s supposed to get 6 more years to fix, what he didn’t fix in the first 18 years? Where’s the beef?
My rule of thumb is to try really hard not to elect any politico whose name I would have recognized five years ago.
Public service....I always thought that was an odd name for what politicians do.
“These men (government officials), in point of fact, are seldom if ever moved by anything rationally describable as public spirit; there is actually no more public spirit among them than among so many burglars or street-walkers.”
~ H. L. Mencken
We elect them.
Not the other way around.
Brooks, the house conservative, dances for his dinner again.
I prefer the word ‘restoration’. We’re going about the task to restore a constitutional, limited government federation, which the DC elite has been trying to dismantle for a century.
The citizens come up with a new set of rules for those they elect to office.
Republicans vote on Tuesday, Democrats vote on Wed......:)
And if your are on welfare / any Fed teat right now.....
YOU CAN'T VOTE!!!!!!!
No Feeders, only Workers are allowed to vote on the rules of conduct.
