Skip to comments.Donít screw this up, GOP senators tell their House counterparts
Posted on 07/31/2014 5:12:00 AM PDT by cotton1706
Senate Republicans have a message for House Republicans: Dont screw up before Election Day.
After fumbling primaries in the past, the GOP believes it will win a majority in the upper chamber this fall as long as the party can avoid self-inflicted wounds.
To do that, Senate Republicans want their colleagues in the lower chamber to play ball and not hand Democrats anything that could turn out the oppositions base or turn off independent voters. Senate Republicans have put subtle pressure on House members to avoid a messy fight over the border bill, impeachment or a government shutdown. Democrats have recently used the latter two gleefully for fundraising.
I think the Democrats are looking for every opportunity to change the subject to something more advantageous for them, Senate Republican Conference Chairman John Thune (S.D.) said. We have to be smart about how we respond to things that they put forward.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has warned that Republicans could try to provoke another government shutdown in the fall or impeach President Obama.
Veteran Senate Republicans say GOP colleagues on the other side of the Capitol should not take the bait, nor should firebrands in their own conference.
Theyre saying, Lets not make any stupid mistakes here. Thats the message that moves back and forth, generally. Lets not undermine our candidates out there, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) said.
Senate Republicans think House Republicans keep fueling the fire.
Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Fla.), for example, recently argued that the House should pass legislation to secure the southern border and move to impeach Obama if he failed to enforce it.

You see, all they care about is their precious Senate. That's what's important to them. Not liberty, not conservatism, not the people, just getting a majority in the Senate, so Mitch McConnell can FINALLY have his beloved prize.
Oh, and they’re also laying the groundwork to AGAIN blame conservatives for the republicans not winning the US Senate.
But they won’t talk about Tommy Thompson, Rick Berg, Heather Wilson, Carly Fiorina, Denny Rehberg, Connie Mack, Pete Hoekstra and George Allen.
I got two things for these a-holes in the US Senate to explain:
2. Mark Mayfield
Until they address these 2 matters, they can F themselves.
Look at McConnell’s first vote last night, before
he changed it. This heralds the following:
The EXEMPT DNC will continue to milk the pseudoimpeachment
they discuss over and over as they mobilize their voters,
live and dead and illegal.
The EXEMPT GOP will do nothing, as usual, except assent,
accept, and encourage continued fraud and corruption,
as they selfservingly get richer, as they lie
and deceive their own voters.
They continue to use the same strategy: We will be fine if we don’t stand for anything. It worked so well I’m the last two presidential elections that they figure to use it again.
“Don’ DO ANYTHING!!!!”
That’ll do the trick—EVERYBODY will vote for folks like that.
Pray!!!! .....that Senators Sessions, Cruz, and those few cherished patriots who work with them
......can and will influence the votes of many ........
to prevent the rotten plans of those who could care less about us.....who work toward our destruction.
The cowards in the GOPe don’t deserve conservative votes. Conservatives are too intelligent to be serfs on the Republican manor.
My response would have been, "too late for that, you guys have seen to it already."
Lets not undermine our candidates out there, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) said.
See, now that they have ALL their candidates safely nominated or renominated (with the final two next week), with the Tea Party successfully “crushed,” they want us all to go away and shut up, except on election day, when they want us all to dutifully vote for them and their hand-picked minions.
They speak with a voice of corruption.
If you are State District 81 I strongly suggest you replace our current follow me rep Moody, with a LEADER not a follower. He opposes amnesty, is Pro Life, 2nd A, 5th gen farmer, businessman, and a Constitutional Conservative, Christian.

Now, we have the opportunity to knock off another Washington insider RINO Lamar Alexander who sides with Obama 62% of the time.
Beat Lamar: TN State Rep Joe Carr

If you have not voted yet these 3 LIBERAL judges need to be replaced. Connie Clark, Sharon Lee, Gary Wade. I voted NO to retain any of them. I know nothing about how they think. These 3 like 0care, and very LIBERAL. They have hired top 0 political operatives to run their campaigns.
Good morning..do you know for what time the vote is scheduled? I’d like to be home if possible to watch it live..
“Good morning..do you know for what time the vote is scheduled?”
No, I don’t.
“To do that, Senate Republicans want their colleagues in the lower chamber to play ball and not hand Democrats anything that could turn out the oppositions base or turn off independent voters. Senate Republicans have put subtle pressure on House members to avoid a messy fight over the border bill ....”
The last polling I heard of concerning Obummer’s handling of immigration was about a 31% approval. Even Dims want the invasion stopped. So House Republicans should walk on eggshells and not demand the immediate deportation of the invaders and repeal of DACA just so Senate Republicans won’t be forced into taking any meaningful votes on border enforcement?
Yeah, I know, the enemedia hates the GOP, even the RINO wing. They hated Reagan even more and he was able to talk over them. It is a quality called leadership. Ever hear of it?
95% of the Gelded Old Party in the Sin-ate are DemocRats. Nothing will change in the Sin-ate. FU Booby Hatch.
Don't forget that knucklehead from Missouri, Akin, and the other from Indiana, Mourdock. Those states whiffed on their nomination processes.
Idiots: “Continue the same plan that has kept the Senate in Harry Reid’s hands!”
Since they mehtion Ted Yoho, here’s his so appropriate campaign ad...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HkVG1StqOzQ
If the Senate Republicans are so darn smart, why don’t they have a majority?
After 11 of them voted to go along with the president’s request for money for the border crisis? Are they crazy??? They are half of the problem. The other half is the do nothing Republican House.
It’s so sad that the electorate is only affected by the last ten minutes of a campaign. Both parties are scrambling to get a ‘current’ message out to win, never mind what the a#$%holes have done for the past six years.
So they`ll give the illegals and OBozo an amnesty loop hole? Then why should we turn out for that rat wanna be party? I`ll just vote third party down the line and screw the rebubliCrats!
They’ve already screwed up. The lawsuit should have been taken up AFTER the election.
They have given the Dems and Obama an issue to beat them over the head and rally their base.
And what if a court approves a Summary Judgment against the lawsuit before the election. They are left with egg on their faces, even if they appeal.
They have plenty of less controversial issues.
Don’t you understand, you are a purist! You are supposed to support the Party regardless of their position on any issue, no matter how stupid,cowardly or corrupt it may seem to you. The Party Boys promise, no really they promise to fix things if you just let the control the $$$ for a while, really.
Aside from a couple of senators the entire Republican delegation in the senate are nothing more than statist pukes. They are so arrogant and yet so blindingly stupid and corrupt. The House leadership is their counterpart butt buddies. If they can screw up anything the GOPE will do it. I have never seen a conservative yet they didn’t hate, with Lois Lerner being their only equal in that regard.
