Mitch Daniels could kick his butt.
Another RINO that needs dumped in the primaries.
Is he gonna move to New York?
Seek and you will not find.
No more RINOs
And the tea party in Indiana intends to run a vigorous campaign to see that someone opens a can of whoop-ass on “Dick” during the primary.
He’s addicted to the good life...time for rehab, Dick.
Target ?? No Target ??
Lugar needs to be primary-ed in the worst way...
We've been trying to boot this RINO for at least 20 years in my memory.
The trouble we keep running into is he runs UNOPPOSED in the primary. NO ONE EVER runs against him.
With much prayer and crossed fingers here's hoping that the Tea Party does in fact run someone against him in 2012. It would be a first since I've been voting (and I first voted in 1976).
OK Indiana folks, Me think lugar a typical long time “RINO”?
Is this accurate? I’ve been wrong before.
And is there a true conservative hanging around waiting to kick him to the curb in the primaries?????
And that means not another old hack...
Just got done talking to the local Tea Party organizer here in the community and he says that the various and sundry Tea Parties are planning a state-wide conference to discuss “primarying” the Dickster.
Both Pence and Daniels could kick his butt however both of those guys will need the big Republican money if they choose to go for the brass ring and therefore can’t afford to piss off the old line supporters of Lugar.
Dick Lugar will get a primary opponent.
His name is Richard Mourdock!
I cannot wait to see the fight!
The senile ol'bastard needs to retire - NOW!
Lugar is another John Danforth. Drifting further to the left with every passing year. He’ll lose the nomination and pull either a Murkowski or a Specter. He’s used the GOP to get where he is but he’ll knife it as soon as he loses their support. Senate seats are like little fiefdoms and the Senators care more about their personal empire than party.
