Commentary: Lott Throws In The Towel (Conservative base will be gone)
crosswalk ^ | 12/20/2002 | Gary Bauer

Commentary: Lott Throws In The Towel Gary Bauer President, American Values

After days of endless apologizing, Trent Lott has thrown in the towel and resigned as Senate Majority Leader. Late last night he began making phone calls to GOP colleagues to let them know his decision.

Also over night the White House began a more concerted push to replace Lott with Senator Bill Frist, who will now emerge as the "frontrunner."

Frist is a savvy media personality, but he angered many conservatives by interfering in Republican primaries around the country, virtually always in favor of the moderate candidate over the conservative. And he was a staunch supporter of former Surgeon General Satcher, who was pro-abortion. I hope a more reliable conservative-- either Nickles or Santorum-- will throw their hat in the ring.

Now comes the hard part. This mess doesn't end with Lott's resignation. The GOP needs to find its backbone. One example: There are reports that the Administration is now afraid to go into court against the University of Michigan's offensive racial quota system that selects students from certain minority groups regardless of grades while rejecting white students with much higher grades.

For 30 years the Republicans have opposed these quasi-quota schemes. Are we now going to throw in the towel because of the smear campaign against Republicans of the last two weeks?

Some insiders are suggesting there will be reluctance at the White House to nominate conservative judges. Such reports better be inaccurate or the conservative base of the party will be gone.

Let me bring up again one easy way for the White House to signal that it knows how to play hardball and help Americans of all races. Many Washington D.C. schools are abysmal and the children, mostly black, trapped in them are ill served. The White House should send a school voucher program to Capitol Hill on the first day of the new Congress just for the District of Columbia. Ted Kennedy will scream. Hillary Clinton will pull her hair out. Daschle will reach for the Maalox. And they will line up and vote "no" against those black families and in favor of the teacher unions.

Last year Bush dropped his voucher plan because Kennedy refused to let it out of Committee, but there should be no cave in this time.

Manipulation of definitions is also a lawyer specialty. I could post a vanity as to why I think I am the one of the few true blue conservatives in this neighborhood. Think of the flames. Folks could save on their heating bills.

Quite right. Folly is defined as acting consistently against your self interest. The Democrats foolishly (for them) have handed the Republicans a real victory, for Lott's successor will have more spine (could not have less spine) and not cave in so often to the Democrats' whines and demands in the "interest" of collegiality and "getting along".

How Lott handed this past few weeks of "apologizing" speaks volumes on why the Republican Senate has been so tame, so docile, so unimaginative in recent years. Lott just wanted to "get along". He has no real principles to guide him. After these past few weeks, we see Trett Lott clearly - everything is 'all about him'. He will say anything to curry favor - anything to be liked. He announces that the definition of a racist is one who feels superior to another, and then he knocks down the straw dog by saying to the black audience that he does not feel 'superior' to them. Alas, he even goes so far as to insist he is and always will be for affirmative action. Lott tells people what he thinks they want to hear, and only a man without a conscience or principles can do that consistently.

I say, in the coming months and years, we will be thanking the Democrats over and over again for creating an atmosphere in which Trent Lott was forced to resign his position as Majority Leader.

And the Republicans played the Trent Lott implosion well: "You can do anything to me, b'er Fox," said the Tar Baby, "but don't put me into that Briar Patch."

I have a hard time taking seriously somebody who supported McCain over Bush for the nomination and can't flip a pancake without falling off the stage.

Today is a good day for the conservative movement in America, and the United States in general.

Trent Lott, statesman extraordinare, has stymied the subversive lefts attempt to turn him into the next Newt Gingrich and has selflessly stepped aside to allow Frist to become Senate Majority Leader.

As Hasterts replacement of the unfairly maligned and truly founding father like Newt Gingrich has thwarted the race baiting souless evil democrat socialist crooks villification of the GOP leadership, so shall Frists appointment deny the leftist propagandists scum their pound of flesh.

Merry Christmas Senator Lott, and thank you for upholding the code of honor.

Mo, this is one fight that is not going to get settled soon on FR. Both sides are digging their heels in. I am exhausted from the flame wars. I'm thinking this is all going to turn out ok in the end. Maybe not right away, but in the long run. The President will make lemonade out of the lemons he has been given.

The GOP needs be united as a political party, if it wants to be successful and advance PresBushes agenda over the next two years and beyond. Taking these hits on the race issue, does the GOP no good.


ain't that the truth... what is it with the republicans in 2002?

Cleaning up after the Lott fiasco, doesn't address the central problem that Republicans face. Liberals are working in overdrive, labeling the GOP, racists. And it shows no signs of letting up, or going away. Instead of cleaning up, Republicans should be fighting back. So far, they're not doing that and such inaction, will only complicate matters.

The Supreme Court will decide the affirmative action cases. The US Government is not a party to the cases. Who cares what they do?

I would say that most politically active Americans would want the Bush administration to take a stand here and file an amicus brief.

Most likely, due to the current paintng of the republican party as South Africa redux, the Bush administration will take a pass.

I lived in the south for four years, I'm sure they were offendd by Lotts remarks on BET. He all but admitted he was a racist. He could have very easily turned it around on the RATS but for some reason he dug an even deepr hole for himself.

If you look at his leadership rein the government Grew, Lott was nowhere to be found to stick up for taxpaying people, he was as inept as Dole, another big government conservative. I'm hoping the GOP can get back to it's roots and start cutting programs that are foolish and trying to put more money in the taxpayers pocket. I still have 20 more years of work and I'll be damed if I want to live on social secuity payments alone. Give me a tax break and let me decide how best to invest my money for retiement.

And he's right, again!

We can't toss in the towel on quota's or conservative judicial appointments just because our Senate or the White House let Je$$ie Jack$on and the racists over at the CBC intimidate them a little.

Lott's comments reflect on Trent Lott and no one else, if you tank the agenda conservatives have been waiting patiently for over this, then you had better call the rats and get a quick lesson in vote fraud.

You'll need it.

I have not been following the entirety of this thread, but my take on the whole Lott deal is this:

If you want Lott out because you do not like the job he is doing, fine; get rid of him.

But if you want him out because of the things that he said at an old man's birthday; things that have been manipulated into portraying Conservatives (Not just Lott) as still racist; then you are playing right into the Liberals sweetest desires.

Don't be fooled by the theory that we are better with Trent out of there, because 'Now the Liberals don't have anything to complain about', because that is NOT what they were after.

They want to be able to not only attack Conservatives, but to GET RID OF THEM WHENEVER THEY WANT, WITHOUT EVEN THE SEMBALANCE OF DUE PROCESS!!!

Think about it; we suffered here for 8 long years with a President who openly broke Federal laws, AND WE COULD NOT GET RID OF HIM! The Liberals screamed that his crime did not 'Rise to the level of Impeachment'. And he got away with it.

Now we have an individual who BROKE NO LAWS; indeed, he simply exercised what is supposed to be his Freedom of Speech, and because his words were twisted to imply that he actively supported Racism, (Even though he DID NOT ACTUALLY STATE THAT), the Left successfully had him removed from his position with absolutely NO DUE PROCESS!!

Amazing. Mark my words; this has opened the floodgates. This opens up the potentional that anytime they (The Left) wants to get rid of a Conservative, all they have to do is find a way to tie him to the evil of Racism, (Or some other 'Politically Incorrect' stance) and they can have him forced out with absolutely NO DUE PROCESS!

In conclusion, the Right has proved themselves whimps once again by caving in, (Did the Left cave in and give up Clinton???? How about Byrd???), and they have handed another big power card to the Liberals. To all of those Conservatives that wanted to put their heads back into the sand by giving up Lott, well, you made a huge mistake. You've told the Liberals that they can have their way any time they want it.

Ann didn't ask Lott to step down. Get your spin right!

Up until two weeks ago, conservatives were clamoring for Lott's removal precisely because of his annoying habit of saying dumb things. (Showing their inferior intellect, liberals have only recently figured that out.) Republicans should ask Lott to step down as leader, but only for all the nice things he's said about Teddy Kennedy.
---Ann Coulter---

Just cause you are hot for her bod Todd, don't be a hypocrite. Ann called for republicans to dump Lott. You said to ban, boycott those who called for Lott to quit, (except for leggy blondes that ya like, I guess)

"Lott got caught committing thought crime which is doubleplusungood..."

Problem is, Lott has made a habit of saying stupid things that a.) embarrassed us all and b.) required apologies be made by and for him.

It was only a matter of time before he stepped in a deeper pool of you-know-what and took us along for the ride. What followed this particularly inane stupidity was breathtaking in its scope.

During the Trent Lott Apologia Tour, he managed to a.) give away the farm and b.) implicate us all in his own guilt.

Trent Lott did it to himself. The lib media set the stage but it was Lott who went out into the spotlight...and shot himself in the foot.

All of this serves to demonstrate why he wasn't an effective Majority Leader in the first place.

Are we now going to throw in the towel because of the smear campaign against Republicans of the last two weeks?

That's the bottom line. Those who wanted Lott out have gotten their wish. Along with that wish, expect some unintended consequences - more affirmative action, more racial quotas, more abortion. And, perhaps, some sort of reparations payments. Oh, and more illegal immigration, since stopping that might be construed as racism.

But, what the hey, we got to hound Lott out of his leadership position! My, how brilliant we are! (/bitter sarcasm)

Trent Lott's celebrated gaffe was probably nothing that any decent, fair-minded person should have gotten all steamed up about -- especially considering the occasion -- but the naked political opportunism and innate VICIOUSNESS of our foul-minded liberal opposition almost miraculously gave our party the best possible chance to rid itself of an embarrassingly incompetent, unprincipled and ineffectual leader who was never fit for his high ranking position in the first place.

Don't forget the VICIOUSNESS of the "canonized conservatives," who abandoned Lott. And George W. Bush, who jumped on Lott and all but labelled him a racist, but praised him today, as a "good man."

While you blast Lott as "unprincipled and ineffectual," remember this: he was elected, unanimously by his fellow GOP Senators.

When we wash the hypocrisy off, we can move on.

Inasmuch as Trent Lott was in kindergarten in 1948, he did not vote for Thurmond. He did not run on a "similar" platform to the Dixiecrats. He did not write a jacket-flap endorsement calling a segregationist an "American Dreamer."

The idea that Lott took the occasion of an old timer's birthday to introduce a new policy initiative to bring back segregation – a Democrat policy – is ludicrous.

Bauer's right about one thing, the "GOP needs to find its backbone".

I want to see the party step up and fight for a change. We need leaders that strike fear into the hearts of the Democrats.

I want a majority leader that will leap onto the floor of the Senate, rip off his shirt like a barbarian warrior, and start cracking leftist skulls! I want a leader that will go toe-to-toe with the minority leader, and make him soil himself! I want to see nothing but yellow puddles under the chairs of every DemocRAT in Congress!

"Bill Frist has an 85 percent conservative rating."

Lott had a 93% ACU rating.

Was this before or after Lott threw himself on the mercy of the liberal left, confessed that he was part of an "immoral" racist southern GOP and pledged his support for affirmative action or whatever other position might help redeem his image with the left wing racebaiters?

Trent Lott, I believe, is a decent man. He is, however, inept. I think if the President got involved in this mess, it was after Lott told BET that there had been immoral leadership in the South for a long time and that he was now for complete affirmative action. President Bush, at that moment, probably felt he had to do something. And people better start realizing that this President doesn't need Karl Rove or anybody else to tell him what to do. I am really tired of having people HERE insinuate that he can't make a decision without Rove's approval. I find that disgusting and it's what the RATS say to undermine him. Even liberal Bob Woodward had to reluctantly admit that this President is tough, strong and a leader. Bush was not about to sit there and allow this situation to continue - now, that would have been weak.

You took up all that bandwidth to say nothing. Absolutely zero.

Your opinion is that Americans aren't interested in where the Bush administration stands on affirmative action.

My opinion is that your position is as clueless as it gets.
