Skip to comments.Bennett mulls write-in bid
Posted on 05/11/2010 10:19:10 PM PDT by OldDeckHand
Sen. Robert Bennett (R-Utah), who lost his bid for re-nomination on Saturday, has not ruled out running as a write-in candidate for the Senate this fall.
"I've made no decisions to make a decision," he said Tuesday when asked about his political future. Ive made a firm decision not to make any decisions at the moment.
Bennett would only say he'd make a decision "later."
Such a decision would put his colleagues - who personally like Bennett but will only endorse a GOP candidate in the primary - in a tough position.
"It's a little like going to your own funeral while you're still alive," the 76-year-old, three term senator said of his colleagues who said they'd support the GOP nominee in Utah.

RINOs are hated because they have no loyalty to Republican principles or to the party.
Lots of sore losers these days.
They refuse to accept that they’re not God’s gift to man.
A bitter old man...
IF he hasn’t stolen enough money to retire on in the time he has been in Washington, there is no hopes for him.
SHEESH! Someone quick, get a wooden stake!
No. Really. The Country can survive without you Senator Bennet. Really. Do just fine. Be ok. It’s not like you’ve done a bangup job of it so far.
So take a hint and go home.
Now he relishes the role of “spoiler.”
Sounds like he could care less about his Country and only about himself. He serves the people. He forgot that and now revenge is on his mind.
Yep, he does not realize that some of why he lost is his time has past.
Disgusting. They can’t just fade away, can they?
Good luck with that write in idea. Most folks are still edumacated at public schools. Bill Bennett would probably end up with more votes.
Sheesh, Bob, get a life. You lost - get over it. Go spend time with the family. Go out and see what the real world is like - for a change.
What a freekin’ baby.
take a hint
take a hike
They just don’t get it do they? You have been rejected! Your eighteen-year sinecure is Washington is over. Now stay home!
Well, looks like instincts are right again and another dishonest RINO has been flushed out.
McCain, Hatch..... Another death grip crew of elderly loser addicts.
These guys were always Democrats...and this is their final tip of the hat. In a way, they are hurting the remaining moderate-players in the party. Why stand by a guy when you know he’d flip to run as an independent immediately after you toss him out?
Look at how entitled these guys think they are. If they can’t win the right way, they’ll destroy everything. There is no difference between this and Charlie Crist. I think you’ll see the same with McCain.
I fear this will lead to an even greater majority for the dems in the Senate in November.
So? What’s your solution to the problem? Keep them in office so they can continue to ruin America as we knew it?
The time has come to take the bitter pill. We may lose a battle but we will win the war if we don’t take your concerns to heart.
Sadly, most politicians are narcissistic vermin. They’d sell their daughters, wives, mothers, and grandmothers to brothels for another term in power.
If Bennett had a shred of decency he’d serve out his term and retire without complaint. I suspect he’ll turn into a vindictive child though.
“The time has come to take the bitter pill. We may lose a battle but we will win the war if we dont take your concerns to heart.”
And that is the correct answer ... I agree with you. We just had better be prepared for another 2 years of Dem control of congress and hopefully 2012 and 2014 will be better years. It is just going to be difficult for the next 2+ years.
