(Washington, DC) – Log Cabin Republicans announces six endorsements for the U.S. House and Senate. The organization endorses the following candidates for re-election: Senators Gordon Smith (R-OR) and Susan Collins (R-ME) and Representatives Mary Bono Mack (R-CA), Mark Kirk (R-IL), Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) and Christopher Shays (R-CT).

“We’re proud to endorse these six lawmakers for re-election,” said Log Cabin President Patrick Sammon. “They’re strong allies and they have excellent records on issues of basic fairness for gay and lesbian Americans. They have stood with us. We are proud to stand with them during the upcoming campaign. We look forward to helping them win re-election.

“These members of Congress represent the future of the Republican Party,” said Sammon. “They support a unifying agenda and they believe, as we do, that the Republican Party must be a big tent party that welcomes everyone.”

...

Congressman Mark Kirk voted against the anti-family federal marriage amendment. He is the lead Republican co-sponsor of the Local Law Enforcement Enhancement Hate Crimes Prevention Act and supports the Employment Non-Discrimination Act.

Some in the GOP think backing RINOs will give us the big tent to bring in the independent voters. I disagree. The wins in NJ, VA and Mass recently were by candidates holding GOP ideas more towards the conservative wing of the GOP than the eastern liberal, RINO wing of the party. If we want wins in 2010 and 2012, we should back candidates holding mainly conservative views on the role of government and on social values. We can’t expect purity on all issues, but small government, right to life and low taxes to spur economic growth are very important.

While I didn't watch the "Obama State of Himself," I did catch bits and pieces on FOX, and when he mentioned eliminating, "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" for the military, I noticed how the hall erupted.

I stopped and started the TV and, of course, noticed that all of the dims jumped up, but as the cameras did a sweep, I noticed that most of the Pubbies side did as well!!!

So much for Republicans being the Party of "Family Values."

It was too hard to pick out which Republicans were standing applauding or even standing at all but it did appear as though most of the section that was in camera view, was up and applauding.

Naturally they would. He's one of their own -- literally. (open secret in DC)

And when that comes out from his divorce records -- which 'the neutral press' will demand to see and make public -- another IL GOP senate candidate will go down in flames (pun intended).

Well, now THAT’S odd: folks who like it up the tailpipe endorsing RINO’s intent on giving it to the voters up the tailpipe.

One of the main focuses of Log Cabin is incorporating open homosexuality into our military. Sorry, but that just doesn't jibe with my values. I don't want our military barracks to become just another bathhouse for these perverts. Home

Every one of these must face a primary challenge.

excerpt from ft.com...

The Republicans are blessed with a strong candidate: Mark Kirk, a five-term Congressman and Naval officer still active in the reserves (he returned this month from his second tour of duty in Afghanistan). Mr Kirk is all but certain to win Tuesday’s GOP primary.

A moderate with appeal to the independents who polls suggest are wavering in their support for the Democrats, he has alienated the more conservative “Tea Party” wing of his party. Last year he tried unsuccessfully to secure backing from Sarah Palin, the former vice-presidential candidate and erstwhile governor of Alaska, when she was in Chicago. Nevertheless, faced with the enticing prospect of humiliating Mr Obama, the Tea Party-goers are likely to support him.

What say you fella Freepers? I was for Kirk until I read more about him. Now
I’m back at square one. They’re all questionable and what are “Log Cabin Republicans?

Kirk lost me when he voted yes on cap & tax.

Hughes is the conservative candidate that I’m voting for.

The new Congressional Comm idea that candidates must not be phony libs like Dede in NY’s 23rd, might moderate the RINOs here even though the 15 gays willing to say they are Log Cabin Pubs endorsed them. And the name: Log Cabin to me refers to Abe Lincoln, who was not gay. Weird. Oh well, if all GOP candidates realize that they can just be CenterRight and not not not Left, that could change a lot of other endorsements as well as primary victors. Steele has learned his lesson by saying candidates should all run in primaries and who the people choose, is what they will get. /Good idea.

Kirk is an idealogical liberal Republican who voted against the surge which worked in Iraq, he voted against any limits on abortion, he supports the gay activist agenda. There are libs in the military and he is one and he isn’t a moderate. He has never been. We have an opportunity to elect Patrick Hughes a common uncommon man who has ran a business and is a solid mainstream conservative. Kirk is not the kind of Senator we need, his election would make him the most liberal Republican in the Senate.

We cannot fail to also insist that a candidate be firm on never compromising or counterfeiting marriage as what it has always meant in this country, or allowing homosexuals to overrun and eviscerate our military. Not just important, but essential.
