Cheney ends campaign, but others
should rethink their races, too

Washington Post, by Jennifer Rubin

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 1/7/2014 5:22:46 AM

The Post reports: Liz Cheney, the daughter of former vice president Dick Cheney, announced Monday that she has decided to end her bid for U.S. Senate in Wyoming, citing “serious health issues” in her family.(Snip)But looked at in the larger context, Cheney’s campaign should be a blinking red light to conservative challengers around the country. The short version: Running for Senate is harder than it looks. Challenging a sitting senator who has no whiff of scandal or egregious misstep is extraordinarily difficult. Your family and friends have to be entirely committed and unflappable. You have to anticipate (Scott Brown, listen up)

In other words, if you dont like the way our party/government is run, tough. Sit down and shut up. Your betters have everything under control.
We get it. Weve been getting it for years. We´re tired of getting it.

I understand the reason for it but I´m not a big fan of the purity movement,especially backing people who are walking October surprises. I´m with Scott Walker,concentrate on beating dems,not other republicans.In addition,I´m glad to see Walker starting to speak out on things.This guy´s a common sense conservative who knows where the political trip wires are.

It is my opinion that we can certainly make changes wherever we feel they are necessary, but there has to be some strategy. Simply putting up anyone who claims to be a tea party conservative and then hoping for a victory over an established incumbent who isn´t perfectly conservative at all times is a guaranteed way to lock ourselves into Democrat rule forever. Why can´t we pick and choose the incumbents to challenge and do it carefully with credible and carefully chosen candidates?

I´m with you #3... Now, tell the GOP to stop their war against the very people whose votes they desperately need to take back the Senate. Seems like a pretty stupid way to win elections, don´t you agree?

I like that "pick and choose" business which is the same way John Boehner set up his committees in 2010.

The idea of challenging simply for the joy of the challenge is not going to accomplish anything. Liz Cheney has proven it.

I´m against somebody jumping in to be a U.S. Senator. You should run for a lower office, win a race or two and have a track record. Being one of 100 Senators is too much power to be a starting point. It might work sometimes but I´m against it on principle. If Liz Cheney is so passionate about helping her country, let her earn a less glamorous post and prove herself there.

I´m with #1. But, in order to promote harmony, aisle reaching, and all that nonsense let me ask our resident RINO´s this;

How do you defend your "hey, theres nothing wrong with this guy", 25+ years in the senate sittin´, gravy train drivin´ Republican? See, here is what us conservatives are on fire about, Stop.The.Spending. It really is that simple. Sure we have a handful of other fiscal/social issue we pipe up about from time to time, but the crux of our argument is the debt/deficit/spending. Once we get that under control, a lot of the other problems will solve themsleves.

Term limits would be nice, but would be a lot harder to accomplish that ejecting our lifetime appointed Senate Overlords who do nothing but play parlimentary parlor tricks will stuffin as much taxpayer cash in their pockets as possible.

So Senate seats are lifetime jobs? Enzi deserved to be primaried for the internet tax, although, otherwise, he´s been reliable. Also, I don´t believe that taking back the Senate will be any kind of panacea with McCain et al forming "gangs" to "reach across the aisle".

Well, I count myself as a member of "the GOP far right," as Jennifer Rubin puts it, contemptuously.

She is right about Liz Cheney, however. I have always liked her, and her father, and especially her mother, Lynn. But the minute I heard Cheney was running for Enzi´s seat, I knew it was a huge mistake. And was disappointed in her for such poor judgment.

We need to pick up 6 seats to bounce Harry Reid as majority leader...so of course let´s focus on beating Rep incumbents, draining money on vanity campaigns like Liz´s and rant about RINOs rather than knocking off Dems in Red States. Yep--that´s a great use of money, time and energy. Some great strategic thinkers here.

You can´t control the Senate without having some RINOs, like it or not. One more "RINO" 4 years ago and we don´t have Obamacare.

#11. Surely you grasp that the usual suspects are perfectly happy w/the GOP as the decayed relic it is. For them, its all about winning and bragging rights, so the R´s can implement (pass more laws) whatever trendy agenda is in fashion in DC. Conservative principles never, ever had anything to do w/it for either them or the GOP, a secular liberal progressive Party since 1856. Cold reality!
#14´s ominous comment is insightful. McDowell sent his buglers up the slopes at 1st Manassas (Bull Run) to alert the Ladies it was time to choose their sides. So too we will have to choose sooner rather than later, i.e. our Republic or the GOP. They are incompatible.

Bunny-hop forward. Bunny-hop back. His mother´s voice rang out through the walls. "I know what you´re doing in there!" she cried, in an episode Mr. Qahtani recounted two weeks later. "Cut it out!"

It was the best of hugs; it was the worst of hugs. Or so the description might have gone had Charlie Crist labored a bit longer on his new memoir, in which the erstwhile governor of Florida—who is now campaigning for the job again—relives the fateful embrace with President Obama that he claims sunk his political fortunes in 2009. Rather than try for style, Crist renders the moment with the racy, staccato gusto that one might expect from a pulpy romance. “We shook hands. The new president leaned forward and gave me a hug. Reach. Pull. Release.” A hundred or

A FedEx truck crossed a freeway and slammed head-on into a bus carrying students in Northern California, killing 10 people, authorities said Friday. The collision Thursday evening killed both drivers, five students and three chaperones, said Lt. Bill Carpenter with the California Highway Patrol. At least 34 people were taken to local hospitals, authorities said. The bus was taking students from various Los Angeles-area schools to visit Humboldt State University in Arcata. The collision occurred in Orland, about 100 miles north of Sacramento. In a statement, the university said it got word of the crash but was working to find out more details. "Our thoughts

Give this retching, crying, sniveling, vomiting degenerate an Academy Award! I don’t know how much more I can take of Oscar Pistorius’ rubbish. A prosecutor on Wednesday ordered the athlete known as the “Blade Runner’’ for the carbon-fiber blades that replace his lower legs — which he’s not afraid to use as props to score pity — to “take responsibility’’ for slaughtering his beautiful girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, on Valentine’s Day, 2013. He told Pistorius, 27, to look at a picture of the blood- and human-tissue-covered head of the model and TV personality, who died, like a caged animal, at age 29 inside

Rolling Stone’s Constitution cover is in need of an amendment. The cover of the storied rock magazine’s latest issue features a naked Julia Louis-Dreyfus with a faulty U.S. Constitution inked on her back. Just above her derriere sits the signature of one of the nation’s most prominent Founding Fathers, John Hancock. There’s only one problem, however: John Hancock didn’t sign the U.S. Constitution. Hancock, president of the Second Continental Congress, actually signed the Declaration of Independence. His autograph on that document is so stylish and large, in fact, that it inspired the use of his full name as a synonym for

RICHGROVE, Calif. — In March 2013, a man with brooding, mahogany eyes and a walrus mustache traveled from his home in California to visit relatives in Alabama. The trip did not end well. When a business acquaintance insulted Jose Manuel Martinez´s daughter, Martinez put two bullets in the man´s head, officials said. It was a matter "of family honor," Errek Jett, an Alabama prosecutor, said Wednesday. But it was not, it turned out, the first time he had killed — far from it, authorities believe. Martinez, 51, was charged Tuesday with killing nine men mostly in California´s Central Valley, part of a

A Southern California city declared the factory that produces Sriracha hot sauce a public nuisance Wednesday night, and gave its operators 90 days to make changes that stop the spicy odors that have prompted complaints from some residents. The Irwindale City Council´s action allows city officials to enter the factory and order changes if the odors persist after the 90-day deadline. The measure passed by a unanimous 4-0 vote. The decision came despite testimony by air-quality experts that progress was being made toward a resolution.

Republicans are demanding greater transparency on how much the administration spent to promote and implement Obamacare — and hitting back at President Obama´s claim that he “didn´t make a hard sell.” The new effort comes after Obama´s claim that the administration met its goal of enrolling more than 7 million people without spending billions. “We didn´t make a hard sell,” Obama said. “We didn´t have billions of dollars to spend on commercials like our critics did.” But both Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill estimate the administration has spent roughly $4 to 5 billion to get the Affordable Care Act running, including hundreds

Despite the Obama administration´s insistence that everyone -- the government, insurance companies, doctors, medical providers, and consumers -- will reap benefits from Obamacare, a recent grant proposal by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) suggests that the agency does have concerns about the ongoing financial viability of one player in the health care market: so-called family planning centers. HHS intends to spend up to $800,000 to fund studies to "conduct data analysis and related research and evaluation on the impact of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) on Title X funded family planning centers."

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes.

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

Under the administration of President Obama, as never before in my lifetime, there is reason to be a bit afraid of the federal government. I have written two books documenting Obama´s abuses of power, his assaults on the Constitution, his wars against business and energy, his abominably reckless spending, his divisiveness, his renegade Justice Department, his regulatory expansion, his executive orders, his overall lawlessness, and more. Obama´s conduct concerning Obamacare alone would be enough to get the impeachment wheels rolling for any other president. His flagrant, deliberate lies regarding almost every aspect of that
