There are things that campaign strategists do when they are terrified of losing, and when they are the autopilot for a candidate too detached and insulated to bother monitoring them, things get ugly really quick.
anti cochran adIn the Mississippi Republican primary race for Senate, Thad Cochran has allowed his campaign to wage a battle based on imagined horribles of one of his own states Senators, taking the guilt-by-association avenue time and time again, and refusing to answer repeated calls for debate. His in-state promoters, former Governor Haley Barbour, and his nephews Henry and Austin, along with their contacts in the revolving-door-politician-to-lobbyist world of DC, have lied about Senator McDaniel, on radio and in print, continuing their campaign of negatives against the man that filed the State of Mississippis class action lawsuit against Obamacare.
It really is DC against the people. We must understand that. Its only us out here, in our towns, small and big, that can change the direction of this nation from the course it is on.
Senator McDaniel has a line in his speeches, that is simply put, and says a lot. McDaniel says that Thad Cochran has been in Washington DC for 42 years, and then he pauses and says, thats as long as Ive been alive.
Now mind you, Senator Cochran isnt appearing at debates, and the latest Hill newspaper story has Mississippi wondering where Cochran could be in general, because he wasnt campaigning hard in the state. These facts show how detached the current Senator is, and shows a declining interest in Mississippi politics. But, its not completely out of the realm of possibility that Senator Cochran is not running a positive campaign, because Senator Cochran isnt that interested in seeking office.

Always has been.
When American folks wake up, DC shudders.
It’s getting people out of their comfort-zone induced lethargy that is the big hurdle.
If congress refuses to pass a law of Term Limits for reps and senators then WE THE PEOPLE MUST do it through the vote.
“f congress refuses to pass a law of Term Limits for reps and senators then WE THE PEOPLE MUST do it through the vote.”
We don’t need another law,we just need voters who are interested enough in their political leadership to vote the bastards off the island after a couple of terms. The problem isn’t with the law, it’s with the idiot voters!
