Classy statements by both men. Mourdock is, I think, a first rate guy.
Anyone whose defeat Obama laments, I celebrate.
Now hope Lugar doesn’t pull a Lisa Murkowsky backed up by the GOPe. Remember how they pulled the rug out from under Joe Miller?
Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don’t stand in the doorway
Don’t block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There’s a battle outside
And it is ragin’
It’ll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin’.
Next? Orrin Hatch!!! Teddy Kennedy best friend in the Demonicrat Party!!!
Great news.... a wonderful start
They mentioned “tea party” twice in the first paragraph.
Ding! Dong! The Dick is out!
Bravo! 5 federal departments is a good start.
"Get things done" = help the Democrat socialists grow government.
Good Riddance DICK Lugar.
Lugar has been a John McCain for the past 8 years good riddance
Good riddance to an anti-2nd Amendment individual.
It is now time to keep a very short leash on Dick Lugar as regards ratifying either the UN Law of the Sea Treaty (UNCLOS) or the UN Small Arms Treaty. That weasel has every reason to twist the knife on the way out.
Heh...Eric Cantor isn’t looking so good right now. He’s disavowing his own PAC, that supported Lugar. They spent a boatload of money on this race for Lugar.
He made a huge mistake with this pick. I hope he’s learned that the TEA Party is alive, well, and not protesting, but has morphed into a real and functional grassroots operation, electing folks from the local level on up.
Whoever said that the TEA Party is dead is looking pretty silly right now.
That can work, Dick, when one side knows how to hold the other side's feet to the fire without feeding the other side's expectation that soon one will be himself
See ya 'round, Dick. Don't let the door hit you. And take your copy of LOST with you!
The tea it is a-boilin’
.. Lugar, in the Senate since 1976, has been shown the door. But as Lugar reminded everybody tonight, hes not finished yet:
My public service is not concluded, Lugar told supporters in Indianapolis. I look forward to what can be achieved in the Senate in the next eight months despite a very difficult national election atmosphere.Lame ducks, like wounded animals, can be very dangerous. Gird your coins
In Lugar, the Senate would lose one of its few remaining members with a habit of bipartisanship
Translated:”In losing Lugar, the Senate would lose a Republican that the Democrats can count on for votes”
Lets do away with the Department of Education, Energy, Commerce, Housing and Urban Development, Mourdock told ABC News in an April phone interview, and he has also has proposed ending the IRS. Mourdock has suggested that Paul Ryans budget doesnt go far enough, and he released his own rough plan last year to shrink spending by $7.6 trillion in 10 years (Ryans would reduce it by $5.5 trillion, according to the Congressional Budget Office).
I'd call this a "good first step" ... a sterling example of "reasonable budget control" that we can all support.
