McDaniel Blasts RINO Cochran in Mississippi Senate Race for Constitutional ‘Inability’
tcotreport.net ^ | 1/22/14

Posted on 01/23/2014 8:49:35 AM PST by cotton1706

GOP Sen. Thad Cochran of Mississippi is facing a spirited challenge from the tea party wing of the party as he seeks a seventh term, with his opponent, state Sen. Chris McDaniel, citing the senator’s voting record as his reason for running.

“I am running primarily because of [Cochran’s] inability to follow constitutional constraints — on spending, on sovereignty, and other major issues,” McDaniel told Newsmax, citing the senator’s vote last year to re-open the government with a resolution that included funding Obamacare.

Although more Republican senators supported the measure than opposed it, McDaniel said that he “would have stood with” GOP Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas, Mike Lee of Utah, Rand Paul of Kentucky, and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania “who voted no, and fought that fight.”

I don’t see how Cochran can defend his votes and actions if he debates McDaniel. Cochran and his reelection director, Roger Wicker’s Son in Law, can go pound sand.

O Boy is he hitting all the buttons. Keep it up guy, and you will win. Add that and the lack of opposition from Cochran to the EOs the little turd in the white hut is handing out..in fact, Cochran is failing his oath of office.

From the Article:

“The Magnolia State almost never turns out sitting senators. The last time a U.S. senator from Mississippi lost a bid for re-nomination was in 1942, when Sen. Wall Doxey was beaten by fellow Democrat James Eastland. Eastland would go on to serve 36 years before retiring in 1978, when Cochran won the seat for his first term.”

This is THE problem in the South and Mid-South states. Ignorant voters, most of whom who live off of the government tit!

As for your own comment:

I'll take this golden opportunity to remind you that the SOUTH has been saving the Union from the demonic-rats for decades, without any help from the LIBERAL infested states like my native CA!, so how about you getting your facts straight or else minding your own business?


You have no idea that we have THAD ENOUGH!

I think you mean the northern states. We, in the South, have done a lot better job than the north or other states electing conservatives. Get your facts straight. In the past the southern dems were a lot more conservative than now.

Not only are we going to kick thad the impaler out of office... we are going to kick wicker’s ass out of office in 2018. You have no idea how angry Mississippians are. We have a bad case of “throw all the bums out”. The state party has little control over primary voters so watch and learn. It’s a new day in the Magnolia State.

If you mean “saving” by the likes of McConnell, Lamar, Thad, Old Helmet Head from MS, The “Ford Family of Crooked Blacks from Memphis,” etc. My point was to the effect that the South has had a propensity for electing people “for life.” Much more so than other parts of the country. BTW, although I am not a Tennessean by birth, I did spend seven years in Memphis. Just loved to watch the corruption in McNarry County!

Memphis is a septic tank and has NOTHING in common with the fine Conservatives in Mississippi. BTW, we refine your gas, grow your cotton, develop and launch your Space ships, build your Naval Vessels and we are even responsible for ATM machines.

“In the past the southern dems were a lot more conservative than now.”

That’s not my point. The South ( and the Mid-South) have tended to elect people in perpetuity to office. Old Robert Byrd went from his Senate seat to his grave. McConnell, Alexander, Cochran, Old Helmet Hair (the other guy who was a lifer in MS), may be Republicans, but they are not doing anything to solve this nation’s problems and should be thrown from office. But I will bet that it will be a miracle if any of these jerks are removed from office by their constituents this year. I just hope I am really wrong. Southern Democrats rode the slave ships to Washington after the civil war and stayed until they died.

Note one difference in all of those you cite. Like it or not, they're RINOs, but not DEMOCRATS, like the LIFETIME infestations in CA of Boxer and Feinstein!

The South is NOT the problem and that is my point.

So explain why Boner, from the midwest, has been there as long as he has?

Ignorant voters there too?

Or that fossil McCain. How long’s he been in the senate? Most of AZ living off the tit too?

“Memphis is a septic tank and has NOTHING in common with the fine Conservatives in Mississippi. BTW, we refine your gas, grow your cotton, develop and launch your Space ships, build your Naval Vessels and we are even responsible for ATM machines.”

This discussion has nothing to do with commerce. And for what it’s worth, in my business there I did business with of those industries, all whom existed to some extent by reason of the government tit. That’s for certain with Ingalls and the other shipbuilders, and Huntsville. But the issue I see is “lifetime” politicians who see their sole responsibly to their constituents to “bring home the Federal Bacon.” It’s gratifying to see that there is a spark amongst the decent conservatives in the South to try and oust these jerks, but it’s not likely to happen this year, although I hope I am really wrong in that thinking. And you have to ask yourself why. The why is that Mississippi lives off of the Federal Government to a greater extent than most states and the people there are used to the Federal handouts so they won’t get rid of Cochran or people of his ilk because to do so may cut off their personal gravy train.

The other thing I remember was the way they handled miscreants down in Parchment Prison. They called it “ringing you up.” Just connect an old telephone magneto to the prisoners genitals and begin turning the crank. Now that’s “enlightened” punishment don’t you think?

BTW California grows substantially more cotton than does Mississippi although with the way it consumes water we shouldn’t be growing it.

Most of what you say is very true. The South isn’t alone when it comes to voting it’s own self-interest. My point was that it’s probably going to be a lot harder to get rid of “the old boys” there than elsewhere. A lot of them have died in office like Robert Byrd.Thad Cochran has been in the Senate for 34 years. McConnell and Rockefeller 25 each. Richard Shelby 26. From my perspective, any of them that are beyond their early 70’s or have been there more than a dozen years should not be there no matter what state they are representing.

Yeah but AMERICANS pick our cotton which is far superior and has none of those turd world bugs in it. You still think that we live on Toabacco Road and have pig shit between our toes. I am telling you that everyone that I know despises cochran and if you pay attention in November... you will learn something. If for some reason the republican party cheats... we will write in McDaniels name and elect him anyway... but that will not happen because we have a GREAT Governor who is not haley barbour and is a true Conservative in name and deed. As far as Parchment goes... the feds have turned it into a resort for criminals.

The Ten Commandments contain 297 words. The Bill of Rights is stated in 463 words. Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address contains 266 words. A recent federal directive to regulate the price of cabbage contains 26,911 words.

CA wasting precious water on cotton!
Where's the outcry from the libtards totally in charge of the once Golden State?
I know, too many ILLEGALS and government employees living off the taxpayers.

The south is no different than the rest of the country in this regard.

How long have the good ladies from CA been in office? How old are they?

Incumbants are seldom replaced. No matter the state of their origin.

“IGNORANT voters keep electing The Jerry Browns of the world.”

No kidding! It is sad to see just how far we have fallen from the days when Ronald Reagan was our governor. Sadly, at my age, I doubt if I will live to see California regain the position as the number one state in the nation again. With all the immigrant trash, it may never happen. At the same time just look at FR. There are still good people like the Robinsons here who are trying to make a difference and they will never give up.

Too long! Hopefully, Fineswine will have a visit from the grim reaper, because she’s 80! Babs is 74 so who knows about her. They have both been in office for 20 years. Which is 20 years too long. The only thing that would save parts of California if it were to be subdivided. There is just too much liberal/illegal trash in the big cities to change anything statewide.
