GOP senators to Liz Cheney:
We like Mike Enzi

Politico, by Burgess Everett

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 7/29/2013 5:01:13 AM

Republican senators are nearly united in their response to Liz Cheney’s challenge to their low-key Wyoming colleague: We like Mike. That is Mike Enzi, the three-term senator from the Cowboy State who was otherwise on a glide path to reelection until the daughter of the former vice president recently announced she will challenge him in the 2014 GOP primary. Despite the clout of the Cheney name in Washington, nearly the entire Senate establishment is backing Enzi — moderates, conservatives and the Senate GOP leadership team. And that unity could help Enzi surmount a very bloody fight next year.

Comments:
This was a bad move, Liz, making unnecessary hard feelings among those who would and could have enthusiastically helped in a different race and venue. Challenging solid Mike Enzi is a mistake.

The GOP Establishment is not in a good place right now. An endorsement from them for an incumbent candidate, especially one who voted to raise taxes, may not be a sure thing. It will he interesting to see what the voters think.

I thoght it was up to the voters not the senators, i like Liz Cheney maybe Mike is a nice guy but he has also been there 3 terms? Maybe new blood is needed, seems like everyone complains about politicians making it a career then they complain about someone challenging their favorite who is making it a career. New blood is needed all around.

Anyone who challenges an encumbent will be vilified. The establishment can´t have people serving who actually listen to the voters as opposed to the electeds who have sold their souls to special interests for power and greed. Washington needs a shake up because it is not working on behalf of the American taxpayer. What have these public servants done for us? We are over-taxed, over-regulated, and worst of all we are over-looked as if we are not even there. People are fed up with the incestuous relationship with government and big business. People are fed up with the elites telling us we are mean and racist because we want the border secured and immigration law enforced. Washington has proved itself to be at war with traditional Americans. Don´t count on us to go along to get along this time around. Bring on the challengers. It is time to hold the establishment Demi-gods responsible for their actions.

lol. Glad to see some of the usual ER supporters out with their protective comments against Liz Cheney. Makes me like her even more. Establishment Republicans are only good for those who want to go more slowly off the cliff. They fail to care or understand that only reform will save our country. Keeping such a grip on the good ol boy system is playing right into the Dems hands. What I do not get is why ER´s are more aggressive against other Republicans...like Palin, Cruz, Paul, and not Liz...than they are toward Dems. Is typical of those who feel threatened by reformers and see their power waning. My only problem with defenders of ER´s is that they hinder all Republicans from winning the Senate. ER´s cause Dems to win. Surely, that could not be the deep secret at the bottom of attacks on conservatives.

Go Liz! Contrary to some, her legal residency is Wyoming.
It is time to retire the old career minded politicians who are still in the dark ages of "not making waves" but are also afraid to stand up against their peers...like when McCain and Nelson tried to chastise Sen. Cruz during the Hagel nomination hearing. Did Enzi make any comment that McCain was childish and wrong in his comments? Enzi is a go along to get along type Senator and there are enough of those who needed to be booted out.
I´ve read repeatedly of "Term Limits" as a rallying cry and when someone tries to implement same, which currently the only way to do so is to challenge in a primary, those very same are saying Not To Do So.
Good Luck Liz---stand firm so you can be in the Senate to assist Sen. Cruz, Lee and others who have the Conservative leanings.
Good Luck to Arizona with the recall petition getting off the ground to put the Sedona resident on his front porch.

GOP Voters to GOP Senators: We don´t like most of you (fortunately, I live in Texas where we have John Coryn and Ted Cruz, but most of the GOP Senators give surrender a bad name).

Start acting like the opposition and maybe we´ll change ... and Liz might decide to skip this race.

Otherwise, full steam ahead!

I like LC very much, but challenging a rock-ribbed conservative like Enzi--who appears to be very well-liked by his constituents--is silly. If you read the article, Enzi is very much admired by Deb Fischer and Mike Lee, who are hardly part of the RINO establishment.

Among other things Enzi is totally opposed to amnesty. Totally. It´s off the table.

Liz has spent virtually all of her life in Virginia. She should run from there. They could use her.

Who says Joe Biden hasn´t got the right foreign policy chops? Well, former Defense secretary Robert Gates did, in January, when he wrote in his memoir that the vice president has been "wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades." But the criticism hasn´t slowed Biden down. For the past four months, the vice president has been Washington´s prime point of contact with Ukraine, quietly taking care of diplomatic maneuvering for the Obama administration stateside while Secretary of State John Kerry meets with European officials abroad. Between November and February, Biden spoke to now-ousted Ukrainian

A universe of super PACs and other organizations has been built -- and staffed by former Clinton operatives -- to prepare the way for Hillary 2016. (To understand how fully formed these efforts are, make sure to read Mark Halperin´s terrific piece in Time this week.) And yet, running through all of these preparations is a current of uncertainty about whether the former first lady, senator and top diplomat will, you know, actually run. The thinking is that Clinton would never let efforts this extensive go forward if she, in her heart of hearts, wasn´t planning to run. But that, like

3.01pm GMT And here is the Reuters version. Ukrainian authorities accused Russia on Saturday of provoking a fatal gunfight in the eastern city of Kharkiv overnight, fearing Moscow could use violence against ethnic Russians to justify invasion. The interior minister said police arrested about 30 people involved on both sides of the clash after two men, aged 20 and 31, were killed late on Friday when pro-Russian demonstrators fought rivals near an office of a Ukrainian nationalist group. Both groups used firearms, Arsen Avakov said. Moscow, whose troops last week seized Ukraine’s Crimea peninsula on the grounds that its ethnic Russian majority feared the new

David Plouffe Sounds ‘Screaming Siren’ Warning

Former White House advisor and President Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign manager, David Plouffe, issued a warning to his fellow Democrats on Friday. Remarking a Republican candidate’s victory on a special election in Florida this week, Plouffe said that the race’s results should serve as a “screaming siren” to Democrats that they have a “turnout issue” and could face another 2010. Speaking with Bloomberg’s Al Hunt, Plouffe said that Rep. David Jolly’s (R-FL) victory on Tuesday could serve as an indicator of events to come. “It doesn’t necessarily have to be a harbinger. We have a turnout issue,” Plouffe told Hunt. “And I

In an incident where nothing can be ruled out, is it a surprise that some relatives of the passengers on missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 are hoping it is a hijacking? To some it is a far-fetched conspiracy theory, and to others, it represents the only scenario that leaves open the possibility of seeing their loved ones alive. That´s how some of the families of the missing in Beijing feel. Authorities have been unified in their preliminary conclusions that terrorism does not appear to be behind the plane´s disappearance. But no one can rule it out. "I cannot confirm whether there

Headlines that Mitch McConnell wants to “crush” the Tea Party are spreading across conservative websites. But the New York Times article, which quotes McConnell, is—of shock to no one—misleading. The piece opens by providing a background of 2010 and 2012 Senate races in which conservative activist groups supported Tea Party candidates able to succeed in primaries, but unelectable in general races. The Times identifies groups such as the Senate Conservatives Fund, the Madison Project, and FreedomWorks as similar players in 2014 Senate campaigns. In Kentucky, Kansas, and Mississippi, Tea Party candidates, with help from the above-mentioned groups, are opposing incumbents—McConnell being one of

HONG KONG — Within an industry notorious for impoverishing shareholders and irking customers, Malaysia Airlines has stood out for its years of restructurings and losses. The company now has global recognition of a far more unfavorable kind after one of its jets disappeared four days ago with 239 people aboard. There has been no suggestion that the unrelenting financial pressures faced by the airline and its 19,000 employees somehow played a role in the disappearance of flight MH370 en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. But the revelation this week that the jet´s co-pilot allowed two female passengers to ride

Recent fundraising figures show the RNC faring better than its DNC counterpart in just about all areas. Notably, the RNC has no debt and nearly $10 Million in cash on hand. The same, however, cannot be said for the DNC, thanks in part to some clever money shuffling among kindred spirits. In the final two months of the 2012 election cycle, the DNC was strapped for cash, and opted to take out two low interest loans totaling $15 Million. The loans were provided by Amalgamated Bank, which uses the tagline, “America’s Labor Bank” and promises to continue “the progressive traditions of its

The phrase “cooped up” won’t hold quite the same meaning much longer if Californians have their way. In 2008, voters in California inexplicably passed a proposition requiring California-based egg producers to provide either free ranges or larger cages for their hens. After concerns were raised that this would put California’s egg producers at an economic disadvantage with producers in other states, provisions were added to extend the mandate to any eggs imported from other states to be sold in California. The law is currently set to go into effect next year. However, six state attorneys general, including Alabama AG Luther Strange, have

The 49-year-old Bonds spent his last 15 big league seasons with San Francisco, finishing in 2007 with 762 homers. But his final years were clouded by suspicions of performance-enhancing drug use, and the seven-time NL MVP was convicted of one obstruction count in April 2011 by a jury that found an answer he gave was criminally evasive during 2003 testimony

The maker of Sam Adams beer announced Friday that it is withdrawing its sponsorship of Boston´s St. Patrick´s Day parade because organizers exclude gay groups. Boston Beer Co.´s decision came a day after a bar in Boston´s South End said it would no longer serve Sam Adams beer because of the brewer´s affiliation with the parade, which is scheduled for Sunday.

Fertility is the missing chapter in sex education. Sobering facts about women’s declining fertility after their 20s are being withheld from ambitious young women, who are propelled along a career track devised for men. The refusal by public schools’ sex-education programs to acknowledge gender differences is betraying both boys and girls. The genders should be separated for sex counseling. It is absurd to avoid the harsh reality that boys have less to lose from casual serial sex than do girls, who risk pregnancy and whose future fertility can be compromised by disease. Boys need lessons in basic ethics and moral reasoning

US officials believe that two communications systems aboard Malaysian Airlines flight 370 were shut down separately, 14 minutes apart - which indicates the plane did not come down because of a sudden catastrophic failure. The data reporting system was shut down at 1.07 am and the transponder was turned off at 1.21 am just after the the pilot signed off to Malaysian air traffic controllers with ´All right, good night,´ and before the Boeing 777 apparently changed course and turned west.
