Mark Levin: If I lived in Mississippi, I would not vote for Thad Cochran
therightscoop.com ^ | 6/25/14

Posted on 06/26/2014 6:19:04 AM PDT by cotton1706

Mark Levin opened his show talking about the Cochran/McDaniel election last night, saying that after what happened in this race he wouldn’t vote for Thad Cochran because he’d be betraying himself to do so:

If I lived in Mississippi, I would not vote for Thad Cochran, because Thad Cochran has besmirched me.

Thad Cochran has told Democrats, minorities, liberals, anybody who would listen that I’m a racist and that I want to stop black people from voting.

People assigned to him, people associated with him — Cochran hasn’t denounced any of this. Mitch McConnell hasn’t denounced any of this. John McCain hasn’t denounced any of this. Haley Barbour hasn’t denounced any of this.

They’re having a party! They won!

They won, and why? They’re so desperate to keep a constitutional conservative out of the Senate? They’re so desperate to protect a man in the early stages of dementia, because he’ll vote the way they want him to vote, because they can control him?

And that’s what we’ve become? That’s what the party of Lincoln has become? The party of Abraham Lincoln has become the party of race-baiting and food stamps? The party of Ronald Reagan has become the party of race-baiting and food stamps?

This is what happens when you have no principles. This is what happens when you’ve lost your moorings.

Reagan appealed to conservative Democrats on a cultural level. He appealed to their highest aspirations, not fear mongering, not race baiting, not by promoting big government programs.

No, there’s no way Thad Cochran would get my vote. I’d be betraying myself.

Amen. Glad to hear TGO, El Rushbo and Hannity sticking by conservative principles and invoking Reagan.


...Reagan appealed to conservative Democrats on a cultural level. He appealed to their highest aspirations, not fear mongering, not race baiting, not by promoting big government programs.

I’m with Mark.

The GOPe has betrayed their base, in the lowest of ways.

I am with him, and for the long-term good of the country and party, I’d pull the lever for the Democrat. Each person disgruntled needs to maximize their impact and add one to the challenger’s column...not just remove a vote from Cochran’s total.

Hate to agree. Hate seeing a Dhimmicrat get into a solid republican state, but the only way the GOP is going to get the message is for Cochran to lose. A very tough lesson indeed

I also suggest we have our own 1968 DNC style riot for the 2016 RNC convention. Time for change.

Thad seems like the right kind of person for DC. A whore who will do anything with anyone for cash.
Wait til Nov when the Democrats turn on him. I hope he gets a massive beat down.

I understand that Cochran got down and dirty to squeak out a win, however I don’t support doing a “Christine O’Donnell” on him. Seems to me that in conservative Mississippi McDaniels and conservatives needed to get out a few more votes.

If there were election irregularities, overturn it but there was an election. This let’s elect a democrat stuff is a disaster.

And yes I know the establishment GOP has done it to us. But we have to beat them. How are we going to win if we couldn’t win a majority in the Republican primary. And yes I know they let democrats vote, those were the rules of the game. We have to win the game, not knock over the board and go home.

Hannity said the same thing. Cochran would have lost if he didn’t have the welfare vote. It ain’t over yet either, I am guessing that a lot of those votes were fraudulent.

I'd rather have a Democrat win a Mississippi Senate seat than a Republican Party which gleefully plays the race card and besmirches conservatives at the same time.

I'm thinking that McCain and this disgusting group of backstabbers should not have a majority of anything, especially the US Senate.

The best way to stop them is for the HOR to reclaim its power of the purse.

The Argument that the Rove wing of the party always gives is that conservatives (read racist, kooks) can’t win a general election and are costing the party a majority. They do this because like the good little useful idiot/puppets they are, they accept the narrative of their inside the beltway media overlords. What is more maddening is that whenever one of our guys wins a primary, Rove ACTIVELY ensures that candidate loses. Then the fat faced arse goes on Fox with his white board and says, “see, it told you so” as if he had nothing to do with it.

I propose we do to the GOP-e what they do to us. Pick one or two races and put our thumb on the scale. Down with McConnell and Thad!! Then let’s show the GOP-e that without us, they are toast. After all, given the state of things the election is more about whether the liberal or moderate/conservative wing of the democrat party controls the Senate. I really see no clear choices. McConnell and the boys/ladies are not going to do Jack or shyt, and Jack just left town, to stop or (more importantly) reverse the state of things.

I am a Mississippi resident and I am furious and disgusted by what happened on Tuesday. I will not be voting for Thad Cochran in November. I will either vote for Chris McDaniel as a write in, vote for the Democrat or stay home. I am also going to go through my and my husbands underwear drawer and send old worn out pairs of underwear to Haley Barbour, Trent Lott, Phil Bryant, John McCain, Mitch McConnell, Karl Rove, and Thad Cochran. I hope their offices get overwhelmed by packages of old underwear. I know it is petty, but what they did in Mississippi is worse than petty. They disenfranchised the Republican party in Mississippi. I am officially ashamed of being a member of the Republican party. I will not ever vote the Republican party ticket again.

If we don’t make them pay a price for this treachery, they will do it over
and over again in the coming elections. They have found what they think
is a winning strategy, unless we put a stop to them.
Like you said, best to put a stop to it now in a couple of key races,
before they use it over and over again.

“There’s never a more wondrous sight than to see a person cut off his nose to spite his face ... LOL ...”

That logic only applies if you believe that a senate majority is worth it with these types of people in it.

I would not reward their evil and corrupt behavior with another vote.

Mitch McConnell should be rewarded with reelection and the position of Majority Leader for his disgusting behavior this year and last year? John Corny should be rewarded with reelection for supporting the most moderate to liberal candidate in EVERY SINGLE election over the past number of cycles? Thad Cochran should be rewarded with reelection for his disgusting behavior and pathetic voting record? Lindsey Graham should be rewarded with reelection after his smug elitest attitude and open treachery.

No thank you. “Crouch down and lick the hand which feeds you, may your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen!”

You don't beat the fascists (literally) in the republican party leadership by voting for them. You beat the fascists like Cochran, McConnell, and Cantor by ...

BEATING THEM.

Write in Chris McDaniel in November!

The execrable Thad Cochran is a fascist, a racist, and a traitor to Republican Party principles.

McDaniel (not McDaniels) won a majority in the Republican primary. He did not win a majority in a Republican primary tainted by bought Democrat votes encouraged and abetted by a Republican establishment that hates everything we stand for. There has to be a real and severe consequence for that. If you can’t see that than we can’t help you.

Actually....I believe the Democrat running against Cochran is considering switching his Party from Democrat to Republican. If that happens,
Cochran will lose. And if the Republican Establishment says no way....the Democrat should run as an Independent Conservative and he would get Republican, Conservative, Independent, Democrat and African American votes...plus he could vote and side with the Republican Senate majority......Methinks you folks in Ole Miss outta make this happen and be rid of Thad Cochran!!!

The GOPe’s must be taught a lesson, since they now think they have
found a “winning” strategy by calling conservatives racist, and enlisting
liberal democrats to vote in a GOP primary.

Otherwise, they will continue to use this strategy in the coming elections.

Don’t just stay home. There are probably other worthy elections to cash your ballot in. You can always leave the US Senate part of the ballot blank or write somebody else in.

I did that here in MA and now Scott Brown is now out of the Senate and has packed up to try to fool another constituency.

I have a great idea. When GOP or a RINO send envelopes for donations, return them empty except a piece of paper with “Remember Mississippi” printed in big letters.

That way they get the message and have to pay someone to open the envelope.
