John McCain: Cochran's Tactics against Tea Party in MS Worth Emulating
breitbart.com ^ | 6/30/14 | Awr Hawkins

Posted on 06/30/2014 11:22:34 AM PDT by cotton1706

One week after traveling to Mississippi to do his utmost to help Senator Thad Cochran (R) beat Tea Party rival Chris McDaniel, Senator John McCain (R-AZ) talked about the strengths he saw in Cochran's approach to campaigning.

According to AZ Central, McCain dismissed criticism over the tactics the Republican Establishment used to get black Democrats to cross over and vote for Cochran.

Said McCain, "There are some people complaining that African-American voters voted. [But] I thought one of the major priorities of the Republican Party was to get all minority and ethnic voters out to vote for Republicans."

He described Cochran's "get-out-the-vote campaign" as "excellent," then talked about how he will face similar circumstances in Arizona and needs to work equally as hard if he runs again. "The key is you'd better pay attention, you'd better work hard, you'd better organize." He added, "And you'd better understand that there's a strong anti-Washington/anti-incumbency sentiment out there, which is justified and you've got your work cut out for you."

These cretins do not see that they are dividing and destroying their own party through their alliance with the Democrats.

Or they do not care.

Freakin moron. They're supposed to draw hem in with a conservative message, not by stabbing conservatives in the back and pandering to the left, calling conservatives racist and actually castigating them for not supporting the extreme leftist Obama!

I'll state this thought again: Why would we want the likes of McCain, Cochran, Flake, Ayotte, Murkowski, McConnell (the list goes on) be the majority of anything? They scare me.

LOL - McCain's 'plan' has nothing to do with working hard and being organized. It has to do with buying off folks with fear and bling... who are used to being 'bought off'.

Real conservatives are NOT charmed John McCain... you and Cochran are disgusting...

John McCain is a good example of what happens when people are consumed with lust for acceptance into the social in crowd of "This Town". He has all the amenities of life most people only dream of. Yet rather than enjoying his wife, her money and his multiple estates, he chooses the cesspool of the beltway society as where he wants to spend his life. And for all his time in congress he is leaving behind a legacy of absolutely nothing productive that anyone can cite.

So the GOPe has decided they could stop conservative republicans like Ted Cruz, by running ads with talk of lynchings and the sounds of chains dragging.

McCain was very proud of the Dems and Indies that voted for him in several 2008 open primaries and abandoned him in the general. Yeah, let’s emulate that.

McCain is disgusting. He knows damn well why conservatives are complaining about the way the Cochran campaign achieved its 'victory'.

Or he's a deranged, detached senile old bastard who IS totally clueless.

I am about to contact my congress person and Rubio asking them what they think of the GOPe tactics and whether they agree with McCain. They’d better be willing to sign an agreement stating no way, no how.

I think the GOP wants to lose, so they can stand back as the rats pass amnesty (which most of the Congressional GOP also wants), and pretend they oppose it.

Yeah -- So now John McCain can join the Democrat plantation masters who are always telling black people that it's much better to live on the subsistence-level hand-outs of the government plantation than to risk the horrors and uncertainties of freedom (or, as Uncle Tom Obama and his Democrat supporters like to call it, "You're-On-Your-Own-Economics.")

So, it’s fine for blacks or any Dim voters to crossover and make mischief, and decide who wins Republican primaries? Can Juan really be such a fool, or is he suffering serious diminishment of his mental faculties.

These are the uniparty talking points.

1) Cochran was smart to get black vote
2) nothing illegal, move along
3) McDaniel sore loser, even his own groups abandoned him

And the biggest talking point of all, Cochran won and the GOP establishment killed the Tea Party.

This is the alamo for Chris, he’s outnumbered, outgunned, and still wants to fight. Stay with him, people or the propaganda of the left (GOPe included) will win.

Conservatives need to line up a Republican for McCain’s seat in 2016. Linsey Graham admitted he worked for two years to keep his seat, donations, organization, and promotion.

If we can find someone who can be totally vetted and a fire in their belly, they can get help nationally to beat McCain.

We can't even organize to help McDaniel beat blatant voter fraud. Who do you think is going to put together your glorious "third party".

I'm disappointed in the lack of support for Chris, should have made headlines with email and donations. Like I said, if we can't even join this fight, make a difference here, then 3rd party is a fantasy.
