Can West Virginia Be Wild
and Wonderful for GOP?

Real Clear Politics, by Salena Zito

Original Article

Posted By:BuckeyeRon, 1/27/2013 5:11:08 PM

Weirton, W.Va.–As long as Republicans do not kick away a golden opportunity, wonderfully wild West Virginia could be their best U.S. Senate pick-up prospect of the 2014 midterm election. With incumbent Democrat Jay Rockefeller’s decision to retire, the door has opened for a strong Republican candidate to win a state that has pivoted away from Democrats in presidential races as well as in its congressional delegation.(Snip) Given that Democrats hold a 55-45 edge in the Senate, Republicans can win a narrow majority if they hold their current seats and capture the six mentioned above–all in states that Republican Mitt Romney

I wonder if there is any other state with a greater disparity between the presidential candidate it wants (Romney 60+%) and how it votes for every other office (heavily Dem). I wouldn´t bet the house (or Senate in this case) on WVa.

Rockefeller was re-elected over and over. Are the good folks really going to go for a conservative? Look at MA, voted for Teddy-the-manslaughterer-Kennedy until he died. And THEN elected a total fraud named Lizzy Warren.

But, we should never, ever give up the fight.

forgot to add this:

as for Manchin, he caucuses with the Dem/Lefties. If the chips are down, will he yield to their pressure? How can we forget what happened with the nightmarish health "care" legislation.

WV is populated by "real" democrats; the old time ones who are good Americans and not the progressive/communist ones who run the country now. Where I work I have found only two guys who voted for Obama, and one will no longer admit it.
If the republicans push the message of fiscal responsibility and freedom from intrusive government, they may have a shot here. These democrats are not bad people.

Exactly #4.

Fiscal responsibility.

Coal can be mined, transported and used in coal-fired power plants in clean, environmentally responsible way.

Coal is jobs and pays taxes that supports teachers, police and firefighters, but Democrats in Congress want to stop it.

Most of you Democrats in WV aren´t the liberal/progressives who dominate the Democrat party in DC, New England, Chicago and California.

And please vett the GOP candidate to ensure they don´t say stupid comments, particularly about abortion.

The dimwitted Senator John D. Rockefeller IV, trust fund tittybaby, married Charles Percy´s daughter, also a trust fund tittybaby, and came out for president hologram and against coal. He had no choice but to retire.
I have done alot of work in West Virginia, and respect the residents there. But it is time for them to demand that Senator Manchin move across the aisle. And the republicans have got to come up with a good candidate. The female congress critter would be a good choice.

FTA- " U.S. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., is an incredibly strong candidate for the GOP,
even though out-of-state groups such as the Club for Growth have described her as too moderate.

The purist circular firing squad will likely intervene ,
running down Capito , challenging her in the primary with an unelectable ,
which will guarantee that
this seat goes Democrat.
The names Sharron Angle , Christine O’Donnell ,
Ken Buck, Richard Mourdock and Todd Akin should be a reminder of what happens when
purity overrides practicality.
Those five Senate seats would have made things so much harder for Obama´s agenda , including lifetime judicial appointments.
His 10 seat Senate majority was a gift that never should have happened.

The Republicans will find another "rape-expert" -- like Mourdock in Indiana or Akin in Missouri -- that no normal voter could support.

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I´ve gotta tell, another little thing about Nelson Mandela. Do you realize in a couple of ways, maybe even more than a couple, Nelson Mandela has more in common or had more in common with Clarence Thomas than he does with Barack Obama? For example, Nelson Mandela (even prior to becoming president, but certainly after he became president of South Africa) insisted on compliance with his country´s constitution. He insisted on it. Obama looks at the US Constitution as an obstacle and makes end runs around it every day, practically. In that sense... These are the kind of

RUSH: Let me give you what is, I think, one of the most amazing things I ever heard Nelson Mandela say. We had fun with Mandela when he was in New York, when he came to New York and went to Yankees Stadium. But I´ll tell you, there are very few people that could have undergone what he went through and maintained any sense of dignity or optimism.(Snip) "Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies." Is that not great? And it´s great because it´s exactly right. Resentment doesn´t do anybody any good.

HealthCare.gov transactions fail
10 percent of time: official

The U.S. federal health insurance website HealthCare.gov, which has had technology problems since its October 1 launch, is now experiencing errors in transmitting applications about 10 percent of the time, a government spokeswoman said on Friday. The online insurance marketplace relays information about new customers in ´834´ transaction forms to the private insurance companies that provide the health plans. HealthCare.gov serves people in 36 states, while 14 states are running their own websites. "We believe nine of 10 transactions are being successfully transmitted," the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS, spokeswoman Julie Bataille said at a news briefing.

Washington — Thad Cochran, a Mississippi Republican who was first elected to the Senate in 1978, set up a generational and ideological clash in the state’s Republican primary when he announced Friday that he would seek a seventh term in 2014. While Mr. Cochran, who turns 76 on Saturday, has the support of many leading Republicans in the state, he is already facing opposition from Chris McDaniel, 41, a state senator aligned with the Tea Party who announced his candidacy in October and has won the support of some conservative groups. Mr. Cochran, who has raised less than $1 million

Rep. James Sensenbrenner Jr., the original author of the Patriot Act, says Director of National Intelligence James Clapper should be prosecuted for lying to Congress. "Lying to Congress is a federal offense, and Clapper ought to be fired and prosecuted for it," the Wisconsin Republican said in an interview with The Hill. He said the Justice Department should prosecute Clapper for giving false testimony during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in March. During that hearing, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) asked Clapper whether the National Security Agency (NSA) collects data on millions of Americans. Clapper insisted that the NSA does not

Washington - President Barack Obama on Thursday defended his nuclear diplomacy with Iran before an audience of Israeli diplomats and senior members of the US Jewish community and officials. At a White House Hanukkah reception, Obama said that it was important for the United States to test Iran´s intentions, and pledged to keep working for a comprehensive deal to deprive Tehran of a nuclear weapon. "For the first time in a decade we have halted progress of Iran´s nuclear program," Obama said. "Key parts of the program will be rolled back even though the toughest of our sanctions remain in

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
