Mark Levin: If I lived in Mississippi, I would not vote for Thad Cochran
therightscoop.com ^ | 6/25/14

Posted on 06/26/2014 6:19:04 AM PDT by cotton1706

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.

That’s a great idea. I’ll do that if I get any but I haven’t gotten any in quite some time. And the envelopes always seem to require a stamp, so I don’t bother.

But if I get one of those postage paid ones, I’ll definitely do that.

What the national republican leadership did in your state was reprehensible. It is clear that a substantial majority of republican voters wanted a change and under the existing election law were denied that change by crossover democrat voters. I understand your frustration and anger but would respectfully suggest a different course in response.

Since your side is clearly a majority of the republican party, rather than electing a democrat to a six year term, it would be more productive to mobilize your majority to change the election law to eliminate the open primary system. The state representatives and governor would find it very difficult to resist this needed reform if faced with a determined majority of their voter base. With a closed primary system in place, future primary elections could not be hijacked by crossing party lines.

I am not as close to this issue as you, but it would seem to me that the people who perpetrated this injustice would love to see those of you who oppose their control withdraw from the process. I would rather take away their power to manipulate the system than to let them have their way. Your group clearly are a majority of the party; don’t let the rascals run you out of your own party.

Cotton, let’s find out who these other State politicians are who supported
Cochran and these despicable dirty tricks before we send them out to vote
in other MS State races.
They deserve to be voted out, as well.
All these MS hack politicians who supported Cochran need to be voted out, as well.

This let’s elect a democrat stuff is a disaster.

If you want to end the corruption and lies in DC, you have to vote for the less corrupt and more truthful candidate. The corrupt Oligarchy always gives them selves away by the dirty attack style campaigns they run, especially in their primaries.

In 2008, Thad Cochran won with 62% if the vote. This is with heavy Democrat turnout for Obama. If McDaniels runs as write-in, he could win with plurality.

If the GOP-E never sees any consequences for despicable actions against Conservatives, they will only get bolder in their tactics against us.

They need to lose this seat and SEE that it was because Conservatives would not forgive what Cochran did to McDaniel.

As for your game board metaphor: We lined up for a game of chess against the GOP-E, and they poured gasoline on the board and on us, and set both on fire. Then they declared themselves the winners and popped the champagne corks because technically, they “won.”

There is nothing I want more right now from the November elections than to see Thad Cochran lose, and I will drive to Mississippi and help with a Third-Party or Write-In campaign if there is one.

I don’t think Cochran can remember who helped him dress this morning either. Cochran is a senile stage prop. The Republican machine is who this should be directed to.

You know that the Oklahoma Tea Party groups were absolutely against Shannon ... :-) ...

Do you know that none of the national Tea Party groups came to Brat's aid in his run against Cantor?

Having the words Tea and Party in your organization's name means squat unless you actually live the principles embodied in the Tea-Party message.

Shannon's record stood for itself. Add in the endorsements of Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz and the Senate Conservative Fund, and Lankford's implied, if not explicit, support for Amnesty, and the there was no choice except Shannon.

My friend, there are pictures all over the Internet of local and state Republocrats hamming it up with Cochran. I can assure you that my family and I will remember everyone of them in Madison County Mississippi.

I will never forget.

And yes I know the establishment GOP has done it to us. But we have to beat them.

We will beat the evil GOPe by getting people to vote for Childers.

Do you not understand the evil the GOPe used by accusing the Tea Party of racism???? That is absolutely unforgivable.

I live next to MS. I will encourage ALL I know in MS to vote for Childers.

First and foremost, the evil GOPe RINO scum must be politically destroyed.

I think you need to educate yourself.

The GOP establishment is truly at war with us and will use the most vile Democrat tactics like race baiting and fraud to beat conservatives in their own party yet folks like yourself still argue to be pragmatic and appease these whores who detest us.

We lost in 2012 by supporting their MOR crap which enthused no one.

McConnell is in trouble in normally GOP Kentucky for being uninspiring at home even though he is a chieftain in DC

Continuing to support these people only gives us 1970s era Sam Nunn or Scoop Jackson style Democrats with GOP monikers....which anyone here old enough knows this is what these folks are.

What Barbour did in Mississippi with liberal Yankee money....Union money...environmentalist cash....the funds of our enemies

Is my Rubicon...I’m done.

I was where you are now during Bush’s largesse.....

You really should inform yourself what they did in Mississippi

Ignorance and being uninformed about your votes is not an excuse.

And sadly, once Lankford votes for Amnesty, there are going to be a lot of angry Oklahoma voters.

This is exactly what Obama, Reid, and Pelosi are hoping for. A republican senate with a couple of RINO’s is much better than a democratic senate with a thoroughly conservative (and ineffective) minority. Too much is at stake in the country at large to pass up the chance for a republican congress. If there truly were enough conservative/ libertarian voters to carry the state of Mississippi in the general election, why couldn’t they easily outnumber Cochran’s supporters (including the democratic crossovers)in the primary? Please hold your nose and save the country!

I have a great idea. When GOP or a RINO send envelopes for donations, return them empty except a piece of paper with “Remember Mississippi” printed in big letters. That way they get the message and have to pay someone to open the envelope.

BE SURE TO DUCT TAPE A CINDER BLOCK or OTHER VERY HEAVY ITEMS TO THE LETTER BEFORE RETURNING IT!

Not if they supported Lankford over Shannon after Lankford came out in support of Amnesty.

Lol I forgot to say flame away. Conservatives should be able toface the hard truth. They lost this one. You never heard of a dirty campaign flyer before? You don’t like crossover votes? Then change the rules or win by more votes, like McDaniels was supposed to do.

I got a contribution call from the RNC. I cut the guy off and said I’m not going to give anything and please make a note the reason was they are not conservative enough. Then I hung up.

But I ain’t voting for any Democrats or letting them win elections or control the Senate and those of you who would are the reason I have to live under Barack Hussein Obama.

Oh, I don't need to do a thing.

Judging by your comments, you must not care about Amnesty and how it will destroy not just Oklahoma but the rest of the US.

There are going to be a lot of sad, uninformed, ignorant Oklahomans once Lankford helps to pass Amnesty and they see the effects of that evil action.

I'm with you wardaddy. I'm now a RINO, so I can vote for Cruz and other TP legislators in primaries.

This will go down as a Pyrrhic victory for GOPe. They lost far more than they won on Tuesday night.

That’s the nice thing about states ... each state gets the representatives that it wants for its people.

Getting Democrats to vote for you in a run-off destroys the entire idea of a primary.

Now, let Cochran get those same Democrat votes to win the Senate seat.

Yes I agree entirely but those were the rules. If they violated it and voted twice then M should challenge it.

They are asking everyone to send clean unopened underwear packages tighty whities) to the border because the people coming across the border aren't wearing underwear. It's a humanitarian crisis, they say. I say we all need to clean out our underwear drawers (no pun intended) and send them to these worthless pieces of dog dung. I am not endorsing sending dirty underwear. Just want to make that clear.

I understand your response because I used to think that way. But, with all due respect, these Washington players are not rascals. These people are evil power hungry men. I promise you, Thad Cochran will not win this senate seat in November. There is not a single self respecting Republican in Mississippi that will vote for him now. The RINO’s in Washington better pray that Chris Mc Daniel runs as a “write in” candidate or this is one senate seat they will loose come November. I an officially ashamed to be a Republican.
