The establishment will arrange for several candidates speaking conservative rhetoric to run against him so the opposition vote will be split.
Graham will win the GOP primary with the opposition split among several candidates......
Brewer is far too progressive to do anything fun like that.
Makes ya wonder what all has been promised to those assisting in the passage of this crap sandwich. They've been given an offer they can't refuse.
The FB comments on these two (and Rubio’s, Corker’s, etc.) sites are pretty telling. They are getting an earful of slams.
Do you know anything about Dwayne Stovall from Cleveland, TX who is right now trying to gather 5,000 signatures to get on primary ballot against Cornyn? Wondering if he is a serious candidate or does he have a chance against Cornyn?
So much for this temp. The spirt of Lautencorpse lives on.
Roger Wicker is a crapstain, he makes that old bull Thad Cochran look good in comparison. Just reelected was Wicker.
TRAITORS....they have an OATH to uphold and they aren’t. Our country is GONE!!
There are 6 Senate votes MISSING.....who are these people who couldn’t bother to vote on this.
ALL the DEMOCRATS are TRAITORS ALSO....please don’t forget to REMIND people....it’s not just these RINO’S...it’s ALL THE DEMOCRATS!!
“Well obviously, America is no longer a representative republic. At least, not when it comes to anyone but hard-core leftists being represented.
Republican politicians represent the special interests who control the party and fund the campaigns. It takes big money to run for office. When votes on issues critical to big money are taken, representatives will vote for money over constituents. These votes (healthcare, gun control, amnesty) always occur non election years so the people will forget the treachery.
In this case, big business interest in a never ending supply of low priced labor and more people to buy products trumped the desire of the public for secure borders and limited immigration.
Why cant Levin see what screws these guys are and have been? Something fishy there. Hatch has always been a sellout.
Senate Cloture vote:
YEAs .. 67
NAYs .. 27
Do you know anything about Dwayne Stovall...”
Only the one link that’s on the net about him. Don’t believe he has ever run or held public office before. IMO Cornyn can be ousted but it’s going to take a very strong candidate with lots of money, lots of boots on the ground. 2014 is an off year and may affect voter turnout.
Democrats in our area have formed a new political group, trained a lot of people and are already going door to door on the weekends to sign people up to vote.
Will be interesting to see how the special session turns out today, whether Democrats filibuster so there is no vote for new abortion standards and, if so, whether Perry calls another special session.
“Why, if it wasn’t for the blackmail, where they’d vote NO, I’d still vote for ‘em”?
Even if your hypothesis is correct, they still need to be released into the Real World: they are either dirty (to be able to obtain dirty laundry, there must be dirt) or love power too much (to stand up to the blackmail)
On a side not, I wonder where all the big gov’t boot-lickers are hiding out (ALA Snowden)? I’m sure if Rubio wrapped it up in ‘National Security’ they’d be willing to throw their 1-3, 5-8th A Rights in along w/ the 4th.
Wicker is a cousin of Fred Thompson; maybe Fred is instructing him.
But we do have to blame our own clueless Republican primary voters who just nominate familiar names, too lazy to do the work of finding out about the voting records of “friendly incumbents”.
It’s too late practically to run a primary campaign against Cornyn. And Cruze would have to be backing someone else for it to succeed.
Still though Republican primary voters in SC, which includes Democrat crossovers, don’t even know where “Loveable Lindsay” stands on immigration. They just know he is a familiar face and gets national media coverage for SC.
McPain’s mother is still living, I believe.
There was an old conservative anti-communist firebrand named Dan Smoot who said the same thing in 1970 about a certain senatorial candidate named George Herbert Walker Bush in TX. But no one would listen even though GHWB lost the general election that year to “Lord Benson”.
But in TX they are poised to launch the fourth generation of bushes — George P. for land commissioner.
SC does still have a runoff though; so if the SC voters understood Graham’s record he might could be toppled. The problem is the voters — too uninformed and too “incumbent friendly”.
TN got it right once, when they voted against Lamar! in 1974, but instead they chose a really bad man for governor who I believe had serious legal matters.
Lamar! could be jealous of the attention Corker is getting on open immigration. People in TN are so uninformed they know neither’s record. They should bring back Davy Crockett.
On a brighter note, I was pleased to hear Ted Cruz call the afterthought border security half-measures a "fig leaf." Really, it was like of a sugarcoat on a poison pill: give us amnesty for illegals, and we'll pay some lip service to securing the border. Talk about closing the gates after the vandals have already overrun the place.
We don’t have a 2 party system. We have a political class constituted from a duopoly and collusion by the dems and repubs.
My bet is that the repubs decided to pass this, and 14 members were chosen/ assigned to vote with the dems. (safe seats/time until re-election/retirement plans)
Not Voting - 6
Brown (D-OH) Chambliss (R-GA) Enzi (R-WY)
Isakson (R-GA) Lee (R-UT) Udall (D-CO)
I think you’re right about needing to have an endorsement from Cruz. To late to run a campaign against Cornyn? May all depend on how many candidates are in the mix and if we end up having a run-off. Cruz had some benefit in that he was not running against an incumbent.
Cornyn now has at least six offices scattered all over the state and a whole lot of money in his war chest. He is in line to be number one Republican in the Senate and he, like McCain and the rest of the old dogs, will never go quietly.
Enormous fools one and all!
The best way for a ruling elite to hold onto power is to create the false illusion of pluralism and choice. With rare exceptions, Democrats and Republicans stand for the same things. Most of their differences are about inflated rhetoric and matters of emphasis rather than substance.
The same interest group can hold onto power in spite of a shift from R to D every 4 to 8 years. When things get bad, people blame the R and replace it with a D, and vice-versa, not realizing that they are switching teams under the same management.
Nothing makes this sham more clear than the current "bipartisanship" on amnesty for illegals.
Yep, I'm disappointed, especially since he said he was against amnesty. I was hoping we'd get at a Norm Coleman type in there to undo some of the damage Lautencorpse had been doing in that seat. Of course, if I was appointed as a seatwarmer in NJ and didn't have to worry about the RAT machine destroying me in the next election, I'd say screw it and vote like Jesse Helms just to leave a "legacy" in the few months I was there.
>> Roger Wicker is a crapstain, he makes that old bull Thad Cochran look good in comparison. Just reelected was Wicker. <<
Another couple of squishes that don't receive nearly as much attention as they should on FR, because they keep a low profile in Washington DC and don't say much. The Mark Kirk apologists here who whine about how we should "focus on RINOs in RED states!!!" will ignore their own rule and give those turds a pass, just like they did with John Thune. Then they're wonder the next year why nothing conservative ever passes the Senate.
The squeaky RINO gets the grease, people go so far as to support a democrat against Lineseed Graham.
And the quiet squish is either ignored (Wicker) or trumpeted for Vice President (Thune) despite being in solid GOP states.
Someone should tell Lineseed to STFU, he could then get away with anything.
Hell Susan Collins isn’t bashed as much as McCain and Lineseed, 2 men well to her right, cause she keeps her trap shut most of the time and doesn’t introduce legislation!
When looking who to primary we should turn a light on the backbenchers as well as the leaders.
