It is not about ridding the chaff in the general election but rather the primary.
27% of Kentucky's eligble voters voted in the primary on May 20th. Since Kentucky is a deeply conservative state, why couldn't those non-voting but eligible conservatives had taken 30 minutes of their busy lives and go vote for BEVINS???!!!!
They didn't. Call it laziness, ignorance or whatever, but we conservatives have a terrible voting problem.
Many here have said "Give me a conservative candidate for a change, and I will vote for him/her!"
Well, another chance squandered.
All talk. nothing but cheap talk. Seriously, I'm pi$$ed.
27 %. Really?! And every Kentuckian conservative wants Mitch McConnell to lose, so I'm told. Now they're so angry, they'll vote for the democrat in November just to show 'em!
Don't you realize just how lame that is, given Tuesday's turnout?
The rest of us sure wants him to go! Where the Hell where the Kentucky conservatives on Tuesday? Did non-Kentucky conservative rally to help get out the vote for Bevins in Kentucky?
No, they were on Free Republic, complaining about Boehner and McConnell being the same as democrats, and now talking about voting democrat to really show 'em that conservatives cannot be taken for granted! Seriously?
Great point AB! You gotta wonder at what level will these bozos get off the couch and come to vote?
I've been around the dance floor more than once placing the blame correctly where it belongs, at the feet of the "conservative chauvanists".
These morons gave us Obama and other "enemies domestic".
It is disheartening AND disgusting to know that the many ,many conservatives are more like the people conservatives constantly complain about...”they just want to watch American idol, they’re lazy and ignorant!”
Lots of big talk on the talk radio shows...and in the bars, but no action, no comittment or follow up.
The problem isn't Conservatives so much as it is dyed in he wool Republicans. They have been brained washed by the party for decades that “you have to vote for candidate X or we will lost the Senate/House/Presidency to the Democrats!”
I would of thought that myth was completely nuked by the results of 2012. The GOP Establishment ran their perfect dream candidate and LOST to the most corrupt incompetent President with the worst economic record in over 100 years! That what happened in GA. Rather then sending another Cruz/Lee/Paul to the Senate, we are going to send another McConnell/Bohner mindless party drone because the GOP Establishment in GA has terrified itself about the 38% of the vote Michell Nunn is going to get in Nov. If they cannot even manage to elect a solid Conservative in GA the GOP may as well close it's doors now.
