Tea party movement might spur challenge for Lugar (RINO Lugar disses Tea Party, backs DREAM Act)

Bottom line (see page 2):

* Lugar defends his support of the START Treaty: "I really couldn't care less whether the tea party or whoever else it is, is interested. Somebody has got to be"

* Lugar defends his vote for Elena Kagan, saying that his vote makes him a "strict constructionist"

* Lugar defends illegal aliens: "To deny them is just un-American!"

This bastard is up for re-election in 2012!

Lugar is a bought and paid for CommieCrate operating under the R label for obvious reasons!

Death to all RINOs (politically speaking, of course)

RINO Lugar has always been a POS IIRC. He has to go. The guy shouldn’t have an ‘R’ by his name.

Give that asshat a stiff primary opponent and he’ll do exactly what McCain did to beat Hayworth: try to out-conservative him and fake strength on national security.

Hell, his first move will probably be to stop by McNasty’s office to ask him how he pulled it off.

I would guess “dick” Lugar voted for Obama. Lugar is the ultimate elitist RINO that travels below the radar.

I called “dick’s” office to ask him to vote no on the SB 510.

He could care less what the people want.

Problem is that he has ran unopposed for many years. If a democrat runs against him I would vote for the democrat just to see Lugar’s time end.

“This bastard is up for re-election in 2012! “

Could be he doesn’t plan on running again! These old entrenched politicians cannot stand to see their influence fade. They still don’t believe in the CHANGE zero started. The biggest, of which, is the Tea Partiers taking back America.

You know, some recent Senate votes (Safe Foods, Earmarks) show the RINOs as so dismissive of the tea party that I would swear that they are trying to piss us off on purpose and maybe drive us to create a third party.

It seems like that would only help the Democrats but some of those snakes would do anything to avoid a primary fight.They’d rather take their chances in a general election. They all saw what happened to some of their “moderate” buddies this year in primaries(Castle, Crist...really Specter also).

lugar is one of those senators who feel so indispensable that he probably will have to be taken out of the senate feet first. He feels he is soooooo much smarter than anyone else that he is essential. Please, Indiana voters, get rid of this self-entitled old fool.

While the Indiana governor acts like he’d be a great presidential candidate I have a totally different opinion.

Yesterday we watched a program with various public school commissioners discussing the initiatives taken by their state to improve the quality of education.

To hear the man from Indiana discuss that state was quite an eye opener. He considered their public school system a total disaster.

The gov can strut around like a bantam rooster but he has nothing to his credit, IMO.

Flame away!

Thats not entirely true. AZ basically has an open primary, which allows independents to vote in GOP primaries.
Thats why McCain got re-elected. Or at least nominated, which lead to his re-election.

There's your problem ~ voting for a Democrat is NEVER a solution to a problem with a Republican.

What you need to do is get Lugar out of there now. The man is obviously senile and living in a totally different age where he imagines the agricultural sector in Indiana still needs guys to pick beans by hand.

Fact is the bean growers probably do have better access to Lugar than most members of his constituency, but they don't need the bean pickers unless there's late season rain and the fields are muddy. Otherwise they are some of America's wealthiest farmers ~ with fine contracts with Mexican and Puerto Rican bean packers.

NOTE: about 90% of the US fancy bean crop is under contract with Mexican bean marketers. In Mexico 90% of all protein derives from fancy beans. This is one of the tightest co-dependency situations between any two nations on Earth. The Rubber Meets The Road in Indiana, Illinois, Arkansas and Tennessee when it comes to fancy beans. These guys usually have 8 members of the Senate bought and paid for at any one time.

Why do we at FR “support” a news source that won’t let us quote them? This with the “link only” rule? In this case, there are OTHER sources for this same information. Why “advertise” for someone who won’t support FR, just post it from a friendly source.

One guy's opinion ~ the NEA has been on an anti-Indiana campaign since the electorate voted for a cap on property taxes a few decades back.

I'd take a good look at what that "one guy"'s relationship has been with the NEA in the past. Most professional "educators", like that "one guy" continue to mouth the NEA mantra no matter how far they've advanced in that business.

It's really pitiful.

BTW, I have found, though, in digging through statistical reports, that public schools in Indiana with substantial African-American presence usually have low scores ~ just like everywhere else.

If you have a solution to this problem let us hear about it.

Lugar moved to the left of Evan Bayh yesterday by voting against the ban on earmarks.

Bayh has moved pretty far right after he decided not to run again. In short, once he could tell Harry to stuff it without fear of repercussions.

Gotta wonder why a peon from Nevada that got ~30K more votes than a losing candidate from South Carolina (Green) got has so much power...

It may not have been the deciding factor but you have to admit-—he really did the “Reagan conservative” bit up brown.

It was hard for loyal conservatives to buy, given McCain’s record, so it figures that Independents did the trick for him.

I know about open primaries-—I’m from Georgia. We used to vote for all kinds of squirrely candidates on the Dem side just to create problems...in ‘92 I voted for Clinton because I regarded him as a ridiculous character who could never win a general election. Hard lesson, that one.

There is another factor involved as well, and it has influenced much of Lugar’s legislative agenda and actions.

He is and has always been a fully-owned CFR asset. In unguarded moments he sometimes refers to them as “the foreign relations boys” when commenting on why a particular issue is a non-starter, as in “I doubt the foreign relations boys will go for that”. It is, in the truest sense, one of their useful idiots.
