Big Lie Finally Laid to Rest (Senate Conservatives Fund email)
senateconservatives.com ^

Posted on 02/26/2014 6:03:00 AM PST by cotton1706

Fellow Conservatives:

One of the biggest lies in Republican politics has finally been laid to rest.

The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) has long maintained that its only goal is to win a Republican majority in the Senate.

But earlier this week, the NRSC disproved this claim when it refused to support conservative candidates against Democrats in the Fall.

Here's the background on this important story.

The NRSC has historically supported all Republican nominees regardless of their ideology as part of the committee's goal of electing Republicans.

NRSCThere have been races in the past where the NRSC played favorites with moderates, but the committee always maintained public support for every Republican nominee after the primary. The NRSC even supported Todd Akin in 2012 once it was clear he was the only Republican on the ballot.

But the NRSC's policy of supporting all GOP nominees has now changed.

The NRSC was asked this week if they would commit to supporting conservative Dr. Milton Wolf (R-KS) in the general election. They refused.

The NRSC is trying to assassinate Dr. Wolf's character by calling him unethical, unstable, and even sadistic. The attacks are so personal and so extreme, they've left no room to support him in the future.

It's all being driven by the fact that Pat Roberts, the incumbent, saw his lead collapse by 28 points after voters learned that he doesn't live in Kansas and has been lying to them about it for over 15 years.

If conservatives get republican nominations, the NRSC is for the democrat winning in November!

Because to these people, in a race between a democrat and a conservative, the democrat is the "lesser of two evils"

So Pat Roberts pulled the same trick that the Massachusetts congresscritter or senator pulled a few years back (can’t remember his name).

No surprise.

Do not give money to any of these organizations. Give directly to the candidates of YOUR choice.

Cotton, you know I’m on your side when it comes to conservative candidates.

But Milton Wolf is a damned idiot and we are lucky we found it out as early as we did.

And I was one of those who had high hopes until the revelation of his facebook foolhardiness.

You really think a stupid posting and some stupid comments on FACEBOOK should disqualify a candidate for office? And we should let a senator easily slide back into office unopposed because of that?

No FW, you have to understand. Anyone who declares themselves to be conservative and wraps themselves in the Tea Party flag is, ispo facto, qualified and deserves your support. Being a “damned idiot” is not a disqualifier.

This is why I no longer support the Republican Party. Well, this and a myriad of other reasons but in a nut shell, the Republican Party has gone to the Left. They abandoned my principles and me a long time ago.

Fine, I can take a hint. Just don’t ask for my vote or support. I’ll vote Tea Party.

So, I see the Surrender Monkey caucus and the Self-Righteous Caucus of FreeRepublic has shown up.

So a stupid stunt by Dr. Wolf, 4 years ago, is reason to disqualify a Tea-Party candidate.

What does a GOP-E candidate have to do?

Does lacking fidelity to conservatism count?

How about deceit of cloture votes for Liberal Monstrosities and then voting against those same Liberal Monstrosities?

How about voting to raise the Debt Ceiling without fighting for any compromises from the other side?

I take it neither of you two self-righteous posters have ever done something stupid?

We should all just support the conservative candidate(s) of our personal choosing and not trust anything coming out of official party mouthpieces. We are NOT LIVs.

Why not? Because the big bad Establishment has made your widdle job oh so difficult?

Get on with it, tough guy. If you think it doesn’t matter that a man posts pictures of dead people online, and makes jokes about them-—well, hell, you’ve got your candidate, don’t you?

Don’t you, punk?

I don't know all of the background with the NRSC with their support of various "conservative" candidates but in this case, not supporting Wolf in his challenge to Roberts so far is not the problem.

Kansas conservatives can determine which conservative candidate they wish, not others, even media conservatives from elsewhere who have determined Wolf is "the conservative" Kansas voters will have, regardless of our desires!

Some of us know better about Wolf and the recent kerfluffle over his autopsy photos and shallow attempts at gallows humor, has nothing to do with our desire not to support him!

Quit running straw dogs over Kansas conservatives refusing to get on board with Wolf, please!

No matter what "evidence" Mark Levin, Erick Erickson and a few others have convinced themselves about, Wolf is NOT what or who they believe him to be and shouldn't we in Kansas, who aren't part of the NRSC, the Roberts campaign, big GOPe, or others have a voice here???

Why must conservatives in Kansas chose their candidate based on "conservative media talking heads" from around the country say? Will someone please answer this for me?

Simple answer. You shouldn’t. Is anybody else stepping up to run against Roberts? Is Kansas just going to let their senator slide back into office unopposed?

Trust me, there more to be found out about Wolf than his postings XRays of deceased people and making jokes about the circumstances regarding the cause of their death!

...and why would anyone want to excuse a medical doctor doing that anyway?

Just because he tells some media conservatives outside Kansas he is a conservative, doesn't make him one! especially in his own home town!

I love Mark Levin but even he can be fooled in his avid desire to rid the Senate of people he thinks need retiring, he's chosen the wrong candidate to base his reputation on here.

Here is his apology. It sounds good and sincere. It is how apologies should be made.
My training as a diagnostic radiologist included the critical component of studying medical images published both in textbooks and online. I have myself authored and published educational material that teaches medical imaging to medical students and doctors. Of the thousands of medical images I have published I have taken care to maintain patient privacy. Several years ago I made some comments about these images that were insensitive to the seriousness of what the images revealed. Soon thereafter, I removed those images and comments, again several years ago. For them to be published in a much more public context now, by a political adversary who would rather declare war on doctors than answer serious questions that Kansans have, is truly sad. However, my mistakes are my own and I take full responsibility for them. I have said throughout this campaign and long before it began that I bear the scars of taking the Oath to my patients. When I was 15 years old, I stood at my father's bedside, himself a rural doctor, and watched him take his last breath. It was at that moment that I knew I would take his torch and dedicate my life to serving patients in need. I'm reminded just how extraordinarily difficult the burden is when I have failed to live up to his example. It is an incredible honor and an enormous burden to work shoulder-to-shoulder with dedicated people who every day run towards the screaming instead of away. The cumulative effect of day after day, year after year, witnessing so much human suffering, so much tragedy, takes its toll. I've seen the burdens of practicing medicine tear apart families and drive good people to vice and as great as the honor is to serve, I would still not wish the burdens of it upon anyone. To those I have offended, I am truly sorry and I ask for your forgiveness. And now, years later, because I have declared that I am willing to stand up for my country, Senator Pat Roberts wants to attack me as a doctor rather than giving Kansans a reason to vote for him. It's sad. Pat Roberts has not been able to identify a single issue on which he thinks I am wrong and so he's doing things the Washington way: character assassination. Kansans should know that I will not be intimidated by their bullying. I did not back down when Barack Obama's IRS audited me and I will not back down from the desperate attacks of a 47-year Washington insider either.
I am sure a lot of us have done dumb things. That doesn't make us bad people.

Disqualifies him?

Who has the power to disqualify him? I don’t.

I thought he was a great candidate for the Senate and beyond.

But he didn’t just post pictures of horrible injuries, as one might for a medical lecture.

He posted pictures of actual patients, and made stupid jokey comments about them.

Does that mean to me he is a terrible man? No, although it seems foolhardy and quite offensive. I wouldn’t want my doctor posting my images, or images of a loved one, and making wisecracks about it, would you?

The problem here is that conservatives these days don’t have to defeat only their opposing candidates. They have to defeat the establishment, the media and the sappy, sloppy easily distracted electorate.

It seems to me there is no way Dr. Wolf could win an election with these photographs and comments being used against him on television and elsewhere around the clock.

If I’m wrong, I’m wrong.

Since the Akin/Mourdock debacle of 2012, the NRSC has made it mandatory that you go to candidate school or you are basically disavowed.

The school involves 4 days of training in 2 sessions. You get grilled by former newsreporters in front of cameras and your mistakes are analyzed. You are further coached in the proper way to answer the gotcha questions.

Bottomline is now, no candidate school means no support.

Milton Wolf shot himself in the foot by posting that stuff in the first place. I agree Pat Roberts has become detatched with his state and probably should just retire, but Wolf hurt himself unnecessarily here.
Should SCF not expose the real disgusting attacks by the GOPe against other candidates. Like perhaps the ridiculous ‘he signed a document praising the bailout Mitch actually voted for’ being used to smear Matt Bevin all over Breitbart and such. Or how about the white supremacist accusations being thrown at Chris McDaniel. Or most outrageously, the lawsuit against Greg Brannon by a guy on Thom Tillis’ team in North Carolina?

We need to destroy the GOPe.

Oh, I don’t doubt they are jumping on it after local media slime dug it up. They are scared of how well he’s doing. The Pat Roberts ‘third senator for Virginia’ ads hurt a lot. What I’m saying is that the things he posted were inappropriate and insensitive. Not illegal, but cavalier and careless. What’s worse, he didn’t handle being questioned on it very well.

Who is surprised by this? Has anyone forgotten what happened in 2010 to Christine ODonnel, DE and Sharon Angel, NV? The Rinos could have retired Harry Reid, and controlled the senate with a win by either candidate, but instead fought for control of the RINO party. They also supported Murkowski in AK as an independent instead of Joe Miller.

Yes they have party control, no they will never have my support again. Who gives a ratsass if they control the senate in 2014. RINOs and D’s are inbreed twins.

I can’t get the words “anyone without sin, cast the first stone” out of my head.

It doesn’t seem that he is a repeat offender. He obviously isn’t “an idiot” or he wouldn’t have gotten as far in the medical field as he has. And, he took the pictures and comments down after realizing that it wasn’t good.

I hate that we throw potentially good candidates away because they don’t fit the establishment.

Linda you are right. There’s some sketchiness about it all.

I looked at the original report in the Topeka newspaper, which was particularly harsh, and also the versions in New York Post and the Daily Mail.

There was also a report and a bit of commentary on the Hot Air website which recounts the story with an air of ruefulness similar to what I felt upon hearing about it.

The facebook page has been taken down so follow-up is difficult, certainly for one as computer unsavvy as I.

A doctor, who posts XRays on his Facebook page, then chats with other of his "friends" alerts me about his professionalism.

Knowing that Facebook is public, I wonder about the judgement of any doctor who feels comfortable doing it.

HIPPA rules will not allow my doctor or a lab to discuss my medical results for anything with my own family member, how does a professional decide it's OK to post my "family" member's XRay on a social website, much less make jokes about the cause of death.

I’ve seen medical IT operations, and HIPAA is really strict about protecting the confidentiality of what they call PHI. Personally identifiable health information.

An anonymous X-ray doesn’t count.

It sounds like he was training med students. I think when you see horrible things like this all the time you have to detach from the horror of it. Maybe he was making lite of it to his students, so they were not shocked by what they saw. Doctors have to detach from all the death and horror they see or they could not do there job. I’m sure in reality he felt pity for the person lying on the table and sometimes laughter/humor veils anxiety. We have doctors and RNs in the family and I know they are under a lot of stress. Humor sometimes releases stress.

OK.

Thinking about MA, if you desire to rid yourself of an elected politician, how comfortable would you be if I, some others from KS, OK, ID and AR get behind someone that doesn't live too far from you and other friends whom you know very well, have met the guy, don't like him, know he's never done anything for anyone! He now runs his mouth off, name dropping and pretending to be this big conservative, when you and others who do know him well, know he is NOT.

How do you feel knowing I and others tell you that if you don't get behind him and support him, you must be a RINO, simply because you don't agree with us, who don't know him at all?

Sounds plausible. An emergency physician has probably seen the worst of the worst. Gallows humor would almost be de rigueur. He’d be weeping himself to pieces otherwise.

One can go crazy trying to chase down every nuance of appearance in a life that is dedicated to anything of consequence. If he has made a mea culpa for taking medical student talk into the general public and repented, this may be as good as we can get.

No, but it does preclude a successful election run by either a rino or teaparty candidate.

All you are doing is perpetuating what the GOP-E and the DNC want, to make sure that conservative candidates cannot win.

The next question has to be: How far back does a mistake have to be for it not to be relevant?

4 years, 8 years, 10 years?

What you want to bet that whatever that standard would turn out to be, both the DNC and the GOP-E would keep pushing it back to suit their purposes?

As a conservative, you should never give the enemy help.

You are doing just that by supporting this "rule". And supporting it you are.

BTW, it wasn't Romney's "47%" comment that lost the election, it was his Progressive Liberal record, his support of Abortion and the Gay Agenda during the general election run-up, his sabotaging conservatives in the Primary, his refusal to fight Obama, and finally, his abandonment of the base so he could curry favor with moderates/liberals in a completely stupid attempt to get their votes.

In short, he was a piss-poor candidate from the git-go, the only candidate that was absolutely guaranteed to lose because he really isn't a republican, as his record shows.

Very well stated. Who hasn’t made a joke in a bad situation? Laughing to not cry.

It doesn’t seem right, but it is human nature. Maybe, that is why he took it down so quickly.

Also, Facebook was very new. The understanding of it wasn’t widely understood. It still isn’t.

if the information didn’t have identifiable information and he thought it was a closed group, I don’t see that he did anything that would make him a bad representative. There are far worse ones already in both houses and the White House.

“How do you feel knowing I and others tell you that if you don’t get behind him and support him, you must be a RINO, simply because you don’t agree with us, who don’t know him at all?”

When have I done that? My goal is a more conservative US Senate. A third of the senate is up for election every second year (we have a couple of extras this year because of SC, HI and OK). To achieve a more conservative senate, those currently sitting in those seats should be scrutinized. Democrats are a given. Every one of them needs to be replaced, if possible. That leaves the republicans, and they should not be allowed to just get reelected or go unchallenged because they’re in republican states and we want to safely keep those seats. Because that makes those senators arrogant and will represent, not the state or their constituents, but themselves.

I don’t know you any more than I know Wolf or Roberts. Roberts may indeed win over Wolf, but in the past, politicians have more easily gotten reelected because nobody knows somebody else is running against them. So I post stories on FR to keep people informed of what’s going on with these primary challenges across the country.

I want a change in leadership and Roberts will vote for McConnell so I’m advocating for his removal by supporting Wolf. But I have absolutely no real influence whatsoever in Kansas other than to let those on FR know that their senator has an opponent.
