2014 targets on the republican side: McConnell, Cornyn, Cochrane, Chambliss, Collins, Alexander, Enzi, Graham. Oh and Boenher and Cantor and any other worthless House member.
On the democratic side: Rockefeller’s seat, Begich, Hagen, Levin’s seat if he retires, Shaheen, Johnson, Landrieu, Pryor, Franken, and go after Warner in VA. Oh, and every possible democrat in the House.
Look at red states getting stronger.
Always lost in the mix is the fact that once the candidates won the primary to represent the Republican Party in the general election, the Party apparatus refused to support them. THAT is why they lost. They took their ball and went home.
“grain of salt” alert. in my experience (going back to the beginning of the tea party in the bay area) this woman is a publicity seeking, clickish san francisco bay area “conservative” wanna be. no influence, following or agreement from me or any of my conservative or tea party friends in this area.
His competitors were the tea party candidates, not Akin. Akin was Bachmann's choice, while Palin and the tea party express supported the female challenger.
So why is Akin being used as a smear against the tea party, the tea party did NOT support Akin in the primary?
The GOPe on the otherhand has actually supported candidates AGAINST the GOP nominee when needed to, for instance to keep Palin from knocking off Murkowski in her Independent run for the Senate, after losing the primary.
I say go big.
The time is now. Present a real, live. running competition to the GOP.
And leading up to 2016. The whole ballgame.
