AP Interview: GOP Sen. Bennett predicts Reid win
Associated Press ^ | July 9, 2010 | BROCK VERGAKIS

Posted on 07/09/2010 5:10:13 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Warning that tea party "mischief" may be aiding Democrats this election season, defeated Utah Republican U.S. Sen. Bob Bennett says that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid likely will keep his seat and that the GOP may not win hotly contested Senate races in Colorado or Kentucky either.

In an interview in his home state with The Associated Press, Bennett also suggested that Republicans may not have a clear plan to govern even if they do take control of the Senate this year.

Bennett is hedging on Reid, just in case Reid gets elected. Bennett wants to make sure he can lobby Reid when he starts his new job as a lobbyist, just like all the retired pols do.

FDR could not get Reid re-elected.

All RINOs do exactly this kind of crap when they lose.

That’s why its best that we don’t elect them in the first place.

Is this prediction or a hope on Bennett’s part? Sounds like a bitter old RINO hoping candidates aided by the Tea Party movement fail.

Oh, Boo hoo. Those mean tea party people kicked you out of office so now you’re going to piss on Harry Reid’s opponent because she has tea party backing. Boo friggin’ hoo.

If you’d been more of a man, Bennet, you’d still have your job.

Yeah, Reid supports Obama who told the nation not to go to Vegas. That’ll endear Reid to all Nevadans... Reid is election toast.

Sour Grapes.

Also, note the new stealth strategy of the old guard media to ignore reporting on Rat candidate, but instead focus exclusively on anything that can be spun as a gaff by Pubs.

“Sounds like a bitter old RINO hoping candidates aided by the Tea Party movement fail.”

Like a little parrot, Bennett’s mirroring/countering Jim Demint’s actions in KY, CO and UT. He blames Demint for his demise and tried to drag him down into the gutter in Lee’s primary battle.

Hey Bob - the voter’s have SPOKEN and you no longer represent them. So guess what, we get to ignore you for REAL now!! Hey that’s a fancy way of giving you some good ol’ fashioned advice - SHUT UP.

Do you see the pattern here?

Bennett, Specter, Crist - old over the hill or egomaniac politicians that think it is their god-given right to remain in office until Armagedden. When the public finally wakes up and kicks their @$$e$ out, all semblance of loyalty goes out the window and they either switch parties or take pot shots. Ask yourself why it’s necessary for old codgers like KKK Byrdman to stay in office until his 90’s. Similarities apply to SCOTUS (but hopefully Kennedy will stick around until Kenya is out of office).

The Founding Fathers didn’t envision selfish shyster career politicians; that’s why term limits were not in the Constitution. It was time long ago.

Conservatives need to wake up. All these ousted GOP politicians are only saying what they thought all along. And the rest of the Republican establishment is of the exact same mind. It’s a farce.
