Skip to comments.PAT ROBERTS ON TEA PARTY'S CHALLENGE OF HIM: 'I MIGHT BE NEXT'
Posted on 07/09/2014 1:42:35 PM PDT by bkopto
Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS) told Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) that he may be the next victim of the anti-incumbent Tea Party mood sweeping America with the defeat of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor earlier this year, Politicos Manu Raju reports.
I might be next, a deadly serious Roberts told Corker on a ride on the underground senate subway, Roberts recounted in an interview with Politicos Raju in Kansas. You never know.
Roberts was referring to how Dave Brat beat Cantor using an anti-incumbency style that Roberts current conservative primary opponent, Dr. Milton Wolf, is following. WolfPresident Barack Obamas second cousinhas emerged as a leader in the Tea Party movement over the past few years, and his fiery style of anti-political class politics has played well into the conservative new media brand of grassroots politician.
Wolfs story aside, however, Roberts situation is eerily similar to other incumbents whove been dropping at an abnormally high rate.
Hes been dogged by questions over his residency ever since a February report in The New York Times that he rents a room in the home of longtime friends and donors when he returns to the state, Politicos Raju wrote. Though Roberts does own half of a duplex in Dodge City that he has rented out for years and previously lived in, the issue is reminiscent of the problems that doomed longtime Indiana Sen. Dick Lugar two years ago.
Raju asked Roberts about the residency question, at which point he sought to differentiate his situation from Lugars.
Dick Lugar had his farm, for goodness sakes, and thought it was his home; thats not the same thing, Roberts said during the interview with his wife in the room. I own the property there, I pay taxes there, I vote there. He didnt do that.

We can only hope, jackass
Milton Wolf is a nut case, a publicity hound, a liar and a fraud.
Yes, Wolf is related to Obama, and the similarities are very obvious now.
Wolf posted X-Rays of gunshot victims on his Facebook account.
Wolf is an idiot.
politicians are like diapers..
they need to be changed often, and for the same reason
This tea party guy will be voting for Roberts
He may be an idiot, but Roberts is trying to pull a Thad Cochran with race baiting, which renders him despicable in my eyes.
Milton R. Wolf is an American physician.
He is a Tea Party movement-aligned activist
who is challenging incumbent Kansas U.S. Senator Pat Roberts
in the 2014 United States Senate election.
Kansas Primary - Tuesday 5 August 2014
Right! Active for about 6 months. Never any activity before that time.
What has Pat Roberts said about Thad Cochran and the Mississippi run-off?
If he has supported Cochran - cut him off, now!
If he has said nothing - you are either against lying and cheating, or you’re abetting it!
If he has come out opposing Cochran’s tactics - re-elect him!
Gonna quote you on this one. (lol)
If the name was NOT on the xray, then there is no violation of privacy laws.
how are you related to Pat Roberts?
I’m voting FOR Wolf.
Has he been solid this year cause he has opposition?
Note that Lamar Alexander says he’s a solid Conservative too. He even runs ads showing him challenging Obama tho he voted to fund obamacare and increase the debt limit.
WHEN did Roberts do any “race baiting”
That is silly
Wolf has never put up a yard sign, walked door to door, or campaigned for ANYONE else his entire life.
Wolf doesn't even vote very often.
Wolf is a fake, Wolf has earned the disrespect of the major 2nd Amendment players in Kansas by trying fake “lifelong” 2nd Amendment support.
Wolf posted mostly party pictures in his home, prior to announcing, then he scrubbed his FB page and has pretended to have deep religious faith that was never before apparent.
Wolf has lied repeatedly about his meeting with Obama, his Cousin. Yes they met, but Wolf never “confronted” Obama.
Yeah, mega-dittos on that.
They’ve run ads calling him a life-long Kansas resident.
And this from a veteran.
Good grief. Nothing worse than the uneducated.
I think birthers are often kooks, and I think those who oppose abortion restrictions based on “purity” arguments are also silly.
I have helped defeat more incumbent Republicans than anyone you know.
You just don't like it when I tell flakey loose cannons that they are on the wrong path.
Pat Roberts is a liar. He is not a Kansas resident, unless that has changed.
He has a chair in somebody’s house.
“Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS) told Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) that he may be the next victim of the anti-incumbent Tea Party mood sweeping America”
I believe the “Tea Party” to be nothing more than the republican party’s Conservative base. If the republican acknowledge this the republicans would need to stop using the term Conservative, to them it’s just an obligatory campaign slogan.
... the gaffe reinforces a criticism that Roberts is too close to Washington and out of touch with his state. The New York Times reported in February that the senator is a virtual stranger in his home state, renting out his Dodge City property and staying with two donors when he stays in Kansas.
That is not YOUR call.
The US Senate says Roberts is a Kansas Resident.
The Kansas Department of Revenue says Roberts is a Kansas Resident.
The Governor, the Kansas AG, the Kansas Secretary of State all say Roberts is a Kansas Resident.
Nearly every member of Congress, Senate and House, maintain a home in the DC area.
This is silly.
It's a pathetic jokes and a lie to Kansas residents for him to portray himself as he does in his official ad.
This is just one reason the whole nation is screwed up.
Hope he gets booted, this fraud.
state - singular - typo
Not everyone in Kansas is happy about having a Senator from Virginia representing us in the U.S. Senate. The guy left Kansas in 1957.
(a ping to you since you’re on top of this)
Politicians and diapers need to be changed often, and for the same reason.
Wolf won’t get 30% of the vote.
Wolf is a JOKE in Kansas. He has virtually no support.
joke - sorry typo a lot today
Well, that may be true. I don’t know.
What I do know is I don’t like some guy in any state who doesn’t actually reside there a significant part of the time.
He is not a state representative in those cases; he’s an actor.
Tiller violated that law, and it got him charged in criminal court. (unfortunately Tiller won, but he shouldn't have).
The silly “no compromise” crowd fought that legislation before it was signed into law.
I know Kansas.
I know Pat Roberts.
Roberts should win and Roberts will win, easily.
Don't waste time and money on the gadfly phony Milton Wolf!
I am rather confident that Roberts spends more time in Kansas than either of your two Senators.
I see Pat Roberts IN KANSAS on a fairly regular basis.
And WHERE does Pat Roberts ‘live’ when you see him in Kansas on a regular basis?
Is he staying in the chair of one of his donors?
Pat Roberts doesnt have his own home in Kansas
~~~In an interview, ******the three-term senator acknowledged that he did not have a home of his own in Kansas******. The house on a country club golf course that he lists as his voting address belongs to two longtime supporters and donors C. Duane and Phyllis Ross and he says he stays with them when he is in the area. He established his voting address there the day before his challenger, Milton Wolf, announced his candidacy last fall, arguing that Mr. Roberts was out of touch with his High Plains roots.
I have full access to the recliner, the senator joked.~~~
Dude. I do know what I'm talking about. I'm a radiologist. You don't have a clue about this subject.
You are not telling the truth.
Medical Records are not to be released to the public, period.
And, Wolf made clear they were all gun shot victims. How many of those are there?
And the dates were on the X-Rays.
Yes, you should know better, which means you are not telling the truth.
Roberts OWNS a home in Dodge City which Roberts rents to someone else.
You are not telling the truth at all.
I’m telling more truth than you are.
Roberts does not have a residence in Kansas.
And you know that’s what this is about.
Are you a donor or just a campaign worker?
Why does Pat Roberts need to use a home owned by OTHER PEOPLE for a voting address?
You must go fishing with Roberts, to get all bent out of shape like you are. Sheesh. Have a nice day.
HUH? So you think someone who does not own real estate and rents can not serve?
Roberts owns a home that he rents out.
Roberts, himself, rents another room elsewhere.
Yeah so if you have a double-wide in Zimbabwe that you rent out, that makes you a Zimbabwe resident and you can be ambassador.
That is Pat Robert’s logic.
Individually identifiable health information is information, including demographic data, that relates to:
the individuals past, present or future physical or mental health or condition,
the provision of health care to the individual, or
the past, present, or future payment for the provision of health care to the individual,
and that identifies the individual or for which there is a reasonable basis to believe it can be used to identify the individual.13 Individually identifiable health information includes many common identifiers (e.g., name, address, birth date, Social Security Number).
The Privacy Rule excludes from protected health information employment records that a covered entity maintains in its capacity as an employer and education and certain other records subject to, or defined in, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, 20 U.S.C. §1232g.
De-Identified Health Information. There are no restrictions on the use or disclosure of de-identified health information.14 De-identified health information neither identifies nor provides a reasonable basis to identify an individual. There are two ways to de-identify information; either: (1) a formal determination by a qualified statistician; or (2) the removal of specified identifiers of the individual and of the individuals relatives, household members, and employers is required, and is adequate only if the covered entity has no actual knowledge that the remaining information could be used to identify the individual.15”
The Tea Party has done great things. It is a shame that many try to pick up the mantel of that generalized group and claim it for their own, without substance and accomplishments to back it up.
While Roberts has been a good Senator and had a good but not perfect adherence to conservative standards, he is certainly not a THAD.
Wolf made an interesting challenger when he was going to run on the issues. There are posters on this forum that have met him and we all hoped for the best. That being said, every news story about the challenge by Wolf is about smear and BS and not about conservative issues — those are the issues that would make Wolf a true representative of the Tea Party values.
I don’t live in Kansas any more as I did for decades, but if I did, I would have little cause so far to support Wolf.
Roberts is not a Cochran and neither is Wolf a Chris McDaniel who ran on the issues. Wolf must run on his ability to defend and represent the conservative values and that has not happened in the recent months.
Thanks. I have been reading, but not engaging. I don’t want to pick a fight with Kansas 58 who has good reason to support Roberts and I would probably do the same if I had experienced a similar set of circumstances.
The residency issue is certainly a valid one despite what the political guild has to say about it. Incumbents are protected like they are some national treasure. Roberts was essentially gifted his Congressional seat when Keith Sebelius retired, reward for his years of service on his staff. The fact that his father was the Chairman of the Republican National Committee certainly helped with all of that. He moved up to the Senate in the great Republican tradition of senority. He sees no need to live in Kansas, as Kansas 58 points out, perfectly legal for him to do so. It does matter to me as far too many of our elected representatives see political service as their birthright and career. The Democrats have practiced this scheme for years and our government is less effective because of it.
I’ll vote for Wolf. Roberts is not in real danger, at least not yet.
I’m good with the conservative things. Just that someone who is a Virginia resident should not portray themselves as “a lifelong Kansas resident”, when they indeed are NOT a Kansas resident, but a former resident who visits and owns rental property.
The campaign ad is completely misleading. Were it not for FR, as an observer, I would not have known these things.
