Opposed to gay marriage, Pro-Life and Pro-Second Amendment...... yep, I could vote for him in November and tell Thad Cochran and Haley Barbour to kiss my butt on both sides.

If you vote for him in November, he’ll be voting for Harry Reid as majority leader in January.

How many pro-life or pro-gun votes would he have to cast to make up for that?

More like conservative voters will write in a vote or not vote at all for that race.
And I hope my republican State Senator Flanagan, NY is reading, thanks for the SAFE ACT you POS. You will not get my vote in November. (I won’t vote Dhimmicrat but neither will I vote for you).

One could argue a vote for Cochran is a green light for GOPe to use race baiting tactics against the Tea Party and GOP base voters.

A conservative Democrat...

Uh, no...such a creature does not exist.

If one is anti-gay marriage, pro-life and a supporter of the Second Amendment to the US Constitution, one is not a democrat and claiming to be so simply perpetuates the lie.

When told to adhere to the party principles, he most definitely will, or suffer the wrath of the party leaders.

I will never trust a damned democrat on anything.

Two-faced lying snakes.

Thank you for pointing out that a vote for any Dremocrat is a vote for Harry Reid as Majority Leader. Democrat Senators vote in lockstep with whatever their Leader tells them. Don’t believe any campaign rhetoric that Democrats put out to the Contrary.

Childers has opposed gay marriage, is anti-abortion and anti-gun control.

This sort of Democrat is always attractive to the unwashed undecided. They never seem to realize that the SOB's stance at home is to get votes, but that his DC votes are going with the Loony Left. Judgeships? Left Wing Nut Burgers, Supreme Court, ditto.

Of course, if the good-ole-boy-conservative Democrat is running against a RINO weenie financed by the traitors at the RNC ... it just makes him all the more attractive. If through some miscalculation the real Democrat loses, the RINO/d will vote more liberally than he would probably have anyway!

I think Childers had a so so record, 60% or so, when he was in the House. If he makes major efforts to distance himself from ObaMao and Reid, reaches out to the TEA Party and pledges to caucus with the GOP if he's the deciding vote or they otherwise gain the majority, then he could win.

“...but that his DC votes are going with the Loony Left. Judgeships? Left Wing Nut Burgers, Supreme Court, ditto.”

Heidi Heitkamp, the junior ‘Rat Senator from North Dakota is a classic example.

She talked a good moderate to conservative game when she was running for the Senate (I’m for the Keystonme Pipeline, blah, blah, blah...) but in the Senator, he voting records has been pretty liberal.

Travis Childers, if elected to the Senate, would be much the same way.

Thad Cochran sucks and the way he won the run-off sucks. But if I were in Mississippi, I’d hold my nose (and close my eyes) when checking the box next to his name.

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 I feel the same way. I wouldn't take a piss on Thad Cochran if he was ablaze in a forest fire. Sometimes things go too far!

So as far as you are concerned, the fact that Thad is no different than - Heidi Heitkamp, the junior ‘Rat Senator from North Dakota - you will vote for your team just because.

It matters not to you that your team is Un-American, Elitist scum.
Are you getting any remuneration (A.K.A. Obamaphones) for your loyalty?

“Childers said he is prepared to take on the Mississippi Republican machine and “recapture” the black vote that went for Cochran in the primary runoff”

The Cochran campaign never captured the black vote, they just rented it. Childers knows that in the general election it will return to the democrats. I will NOT vote for a democrat and I will NOT vote for Cochran. In the past 50 years I’ve had many a primary candidate I’ve supported lose a primary or not get a nomination and I’ve always supported the Republican nominee in the general election, but NOT this time. I’m writing in McDaniel, I know it won’t be legally counted but the impact will be noted.

So I take it that is it perfectly fine for you if you are a conservative, to be labeled a: racist, kkk member, and kook by people who want your vote, your money and labor to get them elected but otherwise would slap you like a red headed step child in a heart beat and tell you to shut the hell up?

If so you are not a conservative. You may be a Republican Party worshiper, but you are no conservative.

So tell me all you who will defend to your death the Republican Party which it would seem is your god, is there anything they could do to stop your on your knees worship of this farce of a party?

Is there any insult, any slight, any verbal beating, any besmirching slight on your reputation and honor: any thing that will stop you from lowering your eyes, saying you are sorry, asking for forgiveness for any perceived conservative slight and obeying your Master?

Anything???

Exactly, that is why McConnell et al feel entirely free to carry out the most criminal election fraud imaginable, they are every bit as much traitors to our republic as Harry Reid, yet you will vote for Cochran, and by doing so allow and encourage our own party's lawless treasonous amoral leadership to remain. After you have seen what McConnell has done in Mississippi, overthrowing the will of the people to keep himself and his cronies in power, do enable himself and his cronies to pick who they will to occupy Cochran's seat when he retires which I suspect he will do shortly, do you really think he is any better than Harry Reid?

You don’t know that. They’re projecting now that the Pubbies could pick up as many as 14 seats. Cochran, McConnell and Graham could all three lose and we’d still be o.k.

Statistically, there’s a much better chance that 3 seats will swing the Senate, one way or another, than one seat.

So, from a calculated risk perspective, I’m comfortable with Conservatives either staying home or voting for the Dem in MS to send a message that the nonsense down there won’t pay. But I’d really discourage Conservatives from trying for a trifecta and voting against McConnell or Linda.

Any vote for a Democrat who is running for the U. S. Senate, is a vote for Harry Reid.

The ONLY way to vote for a senate candidate in 2014 is to support the Republican candidate.

IT IS CRUCIAL FOR THE SENATE TO HAVE A REPUBLICAN MAJORITY AND REMOVE HARRY REID FROM THE SENATE MAJORITY LEADER.

I rarely us upper case letters, but I am screaming (!!!!!) at everyone how important it is to get Harry Reid out of his leadership role in the Senate.

He violated the most sacred freedom the people of MS had; the right to vote in a in a fair, unadulterated election. Every person who voted for Chris McDaniel had their vote negated by voter fraud. Now, this man has stolen your sacred trust and you want to vote for him? SHAME ON ALL YOUR HOUSES!!!

Sorry, that strategy is just nuts! Everyone on the right wants to get rid of Reid. This isn’t the way that you do that! If Cochran wins, send him a drool cup as a present, and continue to support people like Mitch Daniels.

My gosh, are you suggesting people vote for "the lesser of two evils"? I'd say in this case, if McDaniels isn't the nominee, a vote against Cochran is a vote against evil!

We just might be worse off with the Senate having a majority that the RINOs control. Stick with the minority that's more conservative, and they can work with the HOR using the power of the purse to stop funding Obama's or the Chamber of Commerce agenda.

If McDaniel doesn’t get the election results overturned, the Democrat needs to win that race. The Tea Party needs to show the Republican establishment that if they want to play hard ball, our side can do it harder.
