Skip to comments.Shameless promotion (but not for me) For John Boehner's Primary Opponent-Vanity!
Posted on 10/16/2013 10:03:14 PM PDT by JSDude1
This is just a plug for John Boehner's more organized primary opponent: anyone that feel up to it should send Mr. "Speaker" a message!
I like him a lot.
No matter what Boehner thinks, it was impossible to overcome senate majority and the socialist white house. If House repubs hold out any longer they will be blamed for default by MSM.
A better way to achieve success is elect GOP majorities in senate and house and win white house in 2016.
There is no 2nd option which can work. Elections have consequences.
If we would have Nominated candidates who could have won in states such as Indiana, Missouri, Delaware & Nevada, Obamacare never passes. Mourdock, O’Donnell, and Angle were all good people but lousy candidates.
“A better way to achieve success is elect GOP majorities in senate and house and win white house in 2016.”
An even better way is to get rid of the RINO’S, since the RINO’S have proven they can be “bought out” and will attack the base.
The media, Rove, GOP-e, will dump a lot of resources into preserving the status quo. So it’s going to take more than just rooting for the opponent.
Mourdock, Akin, O’Donnell, & Angle were no Rino’s.
The primaried candidates who were RINO’s who all had a much better chance of winning.
Result: Democraps have majority in senate.
Result: Obamacare passes.
Not a single republican voted for Obamacare INCLUDING EVERY RINO.
My conclusion: It is a losing policy to nominate bad conservative candidates. Actually worse than nominating RINO’s who can win.
And I reach that conclusion in spite of disliking RINO’s immensely. I let my brain rule over my heart.
I disagree. I like the Reagan model. Vote for the most conservative person running.
Sometimes they are more liberal than I would like. Truth be told, most all of them are more liberal than I would like. Then come the next election, I vote for the most conservative candidate I see.
Electing liberals to send a message or to settle is self defeating, I think.
I would rather be blamed for doing the right thing than capitulate and do the wrong thing. These Rino's don't have a set of testicles between them.
The problem cannot be solved with the hope of electing virtuous politicians. Bush had a Republican congress for a couple years and blew the debt sky high.
Our Framers didn't rely on the election of righteous and moral men; neither should we.
Joe Carr to oust Lamar Alexander in TN
Lee Bright to oust Lindsey Graham in SC
PLEASE, contact Louie Gohmert and tell him we want to add his name as opposing Cornyn
Agree - while I live in Boehner’s district and am not pleased with everything he has done, I’ve taken a look at his primary opponent and while he may be very conservative, he is a high school teacher with little political experience. Even in this highly Republican district, the Democrat opponent would eat this guy alive, and there could be enough Republicans who could sit it out that he would join other lousy candidate losers.
We have to work to encourage experienced conservative candidates that won’t put their foot in their mouths, the traps will be laid for even the most cautious.
Reagan did NOT say that!
He said he will vote for the most conservative WHO CAN WIN.
Please check again.
That is a losing strategy. Now we lost 4 conservative candidates for senate in 2012 and Obamacare passed due to majority democraps.
Coach Lombardi was correct..winning is the ONLY thing.
Bush era republicans were drunk with power. They spent money like drunken sailors. We have a better crop of politicians now. Thank heavens.
Just stay smart and play it right. I have hopes for 2014 and 2016, unless we nominate more Akins and Mourdocks.
You got that right! Use brains not emotions!!
Scott (Rino) Brown was the deciding vote.
Scott’s vote was immaterial. Democraps had the majority votes already. But my understanding is not a single republican voted to pass Obamacare.
You apparently don't understand the value of federalism over majoritarianism. Most don't.
All I understand is that winning elections is EVERYTHING.
If that does not happen, all theories are useless. Right now democrats are in charge. They won elections. Just take the punishment since we lost senate elections in Indiana, Missouri, Utah & Delaware. Every one of them could have been won with better candidates.
Elections have been demonstrably useless in stemming the tide of Marxism these past 100 years. Venezuela has elections, and all they do is serve to condone the tyrant. The American version is, "Obama won, get over it, let him rule." Last night's vote in the Senate and House proved it.
Absent a senate of the states, the very structure of our government GUARANTEES consolidation of power in Washington DC. We are witnessing the culmination of a mistake, the 17th amendment.
Because of the 17th, we have two demagogic houses of congress, whose members retain power, regardless of party, when they promise goodies to the people.
Majoritarianism is killing us, and party affiliation can have little aggregate effect.
I am still not so pessimistic. With good conservative candidates WHO CAN WIN, in 2014 & 2016, things can turn around. We need candidates who are skillful in dealing with MSM. Someone who will not be trapped easily.
Trying to defund Obamacare was not a smart move at this time, as results have proven out. Cart before the horse tactics. Obamacare will be a disaster. It is 100 times more complex to run than social security and 10 times more complex than running Medicare. Let it go into execution mode. Middle class will see quickly how bad it is. It will not become popular like social security & Medicare. I can bet on it.
