Canít Mike Lee do better? (Jennifer RUBE salivates over a RINO challenge to Lee)
The Washington Compost ^ | 10/18/2013 | Jennifer Rubin (AKA - The Rube, or Jennifer Durbin)

It is hard not to be cynical about the right-wingers’ racket. They promote confrontation in which there is no hope of victory, assail other Republicans when it fails and, along the way, raise a great deal of money and get a whole lot of media attention.

There are two things going on here. First, the short-term incentives for Lee to engage in this stunt are obvious. He’s not ever going to be president of the United States and will forever be in the shadow of people like Jim DeMint, president of the Heritage Foundation, and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.).

(Lee could easily be senate majority leader for a Cruz admin, you stupid dolt)

But what he lacks in star power and public attention he can make up in money and more media coverage than he’s enjoyed in his entire life.

(Someone is extremely jealous of the senator)

Lee got to where he is by characterizing Sen. Robert Bennett (R-Utah) as a squishy insider. (Bennett had a nearly impeccable conservative voting record.)

(She's off her meds again)

However, Lee may have taken his own message too seriously. He apparently learned that you can never be disruptive and conservative enough. What he should have learned is that it is critical to stay close to your constituents and produce tangible results. He has done neither and, therefore, may be just as vulnerable to a challenge as Bennett was.

(I'm sure some inspirational RINO will defeat him. LMAO)

Continuing in Utah news.

Just for the laughs. Jennifer Rube pretends to be a Republican. In reality, she's a huge RINO at the watering hole that few people like, least of all the libs she plays for. Here, she attempts to convince us that Mike Lee is vulnerable (which he isn't), that Bob Bennett was a conservative (which he wasn't), and that Lee should pipe down (which he shouldn't).

She proceeds to pathetically try to drive a wedge between Lee and Cruz, failing to realize that conservatives are not concerned with insider power games. We care more about principle.

Rube-in. Proof any idiot can become a journalist

Interesting, the criticism coming from an Alinskyite

Confrontational? Game players? Naw . . not Jennifer and her ilk

I need a split screen showing Jennifer Rubin(or Rube or Durbin) talking on one side, and the narrator who freely interjects or translates her statements on the other side of the screen. Whose talking about what to whom? That is the question.

She’s a neocon! You people spent the past decade smearing anyone who pointed out that neocons aren’t conservative. And the neocons took over the GOP and purged the remaining conservatives. That’s the way communists work. And neocons are communists who split with the USSR 50 years ago.

Oh! But if I object to a police state / perpetual war ideology, I must be an anti-semite!

Don’t complain about this idiot woman. This is what the GOP chose a decade ago. Have fun voting for Liz Cheney and the Bush offspring for the next 20 years.

Bennett’s Loss in Utah a ‘Damn Outrage,’ ‘Non-Violent Coup,’ Part of Larger Intolerant GOP Narrative

“Now,” he repeated, “he’s losing his career over that. And it’s just a damn outrage.”

There are many beltway blowhards who only know how to play politics with issues that are important to the American people. They can't understand when people like Lee and Cruz stand up for what they believe. The American people deserve better then politicians who put party politics above the good of the country. The old guard elitist slobs are trying to destroy good men who refuse to play their dirty political games.

Jen-Jen, we would have had victory if we weren’t knifed in the back by cowards. I have posted about a simple strategy that would force their thieving base to support our positions. Basically it uses the budget as the hammer and default as the anvil. The position is support our position or you will loose your welfare. If 0 pushes us into default then you loose your welfare forever. So tell your dim senators to support our position. Oh, if you riot and burn down your cities you will live with it because we will not pay for rebuilding. See. Simple honest and tough. But not easy because we keep getting knifed in the back by people like Jen-Jen.

Thanks for the ping, onyx. I’m sending my hundred dollar answer to Senator Lee... Thank you, Mike!

It’s time to formulate a replacement for that deceiving piece of rino Hatch.

God bless and keep you, dearest glock!

"She's a neocon"

Remember the spring of 2011, after Obama agreed to intervene in Libya, Bill Kristol proclaimed Obama to be "born again NeoCon".
