Skip to comments.The Barbour Machine’s Mississippi Ad War
Posted on 07/18/2014 8:56:47 AM PDT by C19fan
Even in the bitterly fought primary battle between Mississippi senator Thad Cochran and his challenger, state senator Chris McDaniel, some of the radio ads that aired against McDaniel were considered especially incendiary. One charged that a McDaniel victory would set back race relationships between blacks and whites and other ethnic groups. Another warned that his campaign was part of an attempt to roll back the hand of time.
The political-action committee that aired the ads raised eyebrows from the outset.

Vote out the RINOs!
I wouldn't vote for the Democrat; however there's no way I would vote for Thad in the general. I'd vote for the Libertarian or write in McDaniel's name if I lived in MS.
The GOP-e has soiled the party nest big-time with this odious stunt.
It remains to be seen whether the Republican rank-and-file will let them get away with it.
Couldn’t agree more.
Until we teach them a severe lesson, we will only be made to believe we have any real power while not actually having any. And, no, one or two nice District Primary wins is not power.
The “difference” between Reid and McConnell is the speed at which they are destroying us with overspending and higher debt, the style of Obamacare we will have etc. etc.
Ben Carson did a phone message recently saying O-Care needs to be “replaced” which is code for Romneycare.....
The GOPe is perfectly fine handing the RAT b@st@rds a seat. Don’t play that game!
Voting for a democrat is almost always a bad idea. Don’t do it, vote third party (in that slot) instead.
They can't do this in states that have closed primaries. Mississippi should adopt that system.
I do live in Miss. and Thad can go pee up a rope this Fall.
Forget vote fraud, forget race-baiting ads, forget Cochran’s refusal to debate McDaniel (if in fact he’s still capable of cogent thought). The Republican primary was so Republicans could choose their representative in the November elections. The operative word here is “Republicans”. After he trailed McDaniel June 3 he begged the state Democrats to save his political butt. God only know what deal he cut to get their support, but get it he did. His democrat allies came to his rescue, and it is to them he now owes much.
Bottom line-our “Republican” candidate was chosen by Democrats with the blessings of the RNC. If it had been Republicans alone making the choice McDaniel would’ve won. Period. The actions of Cochran and the RNC make a mockery of the word “representative”, and I will NOT go along with this blatant theft. As for those who think this is sour grapes just remember, if the poker game is crooked, it doesn’t matter if there’s no other game in town, you get out of it. And that’s just what I’m doing this Fall...
and the TEA party types that did win their primaries will see their campaigns sabotaged by their own party
Mississippi Senate Candidates, General Election November
Shawn O’Hara (Reform Party)
Kamikazi’s only get one chance El Zoro...*s*
If McDaniel fails to get justice on this, he should endorse and work for Shawn O’Hara. Wouldn’t it be something if all the conservatives that voted for McDaniel turn and vote for the Reform Party and defeat Cochran?
Reform Party is H. Ross Perot: I don’t think we need that. MS gave H. Ross Perot one of his worst showings.
Do you not think that a Perot man would be better than a Democrat?
I live in Mississippi, I will NOT vote for a democrat, I will not vote for thad cochran. I will write in Chris McDaniel. The “write in” will count only as a No vote. I may not support ANY Republican in Mississippi for any office in the future that doesn’t repudiate the actions of the cochran campaign, the barbours and the NRSC. henry barbour should be booted from the Republican State and National Committee positions and Joe Nosef should be replaced as the Chairman of the Mississippi Republican Party as he appears to be a shill for the barbours and is doing nothing and has done nothing to unify the party since he’s held the position.
You’re right, this is on the shoulders of the rinos from Mississippi and Washington and they can’t be rewarded. Conservatives have to take a stand somewhere. It’s one thing to support the primary winning rino, as I’ve done for years, when they’ve won. It’s an entirely different situation when them stolen it and denigrated and crapped on their Conservative base and them expect them to fall in line so they can do it again.
Mr. Barbour is going to find out many conservatives will remember his thuggery come election time!
ACE: There’s more in the article, including Barbour’s statement — essentially “You’re damn right I did and I’d do it again.”
Look at his expression in the article's photo. It screams "What'chyoo gonna do 'bout it, boy?"
The last time Cochran ran had Obama on the top of the ticket, which explains why each side came out IMO
What is your explaination for the turnout in 2012?
What is your explaination for the turnout in 2012?
here we go again...
allow me to explain and provide math data...
if you vote for the pub, he wins, and you have a guilty consience..
if you vote for the rat, he wins, and you have a guilty consience..
if you vote independent, or third party, the rat or the pub may win, but your conseince is clear...
and the protest vote will be recognized and noted by both parties...
it does not get any clearer than that..
if you would vote for the rat instead of third party, then you are a closet socialist, period...
get the hell off of this site, and proceed directly to DU
Possibly but not my much
