Time to panic? McConnell trails
Democratic challenger in polls

Washington Times, by Jacqueline Klimas

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/10/2014 12:20:42 PM

The latest Kentucky poll found that Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican, is trailing his Democratic challenger, Kentucky Secretary of State Allison Lundergan Grimes, by 4 percentage points. Forty-six percent of those polled said they would vote for Ms. Grimes, who has campaigned primarily on bringing jobs to Kentucky and raising the minimum wage, while just 42 percent said they would vote for Mr. McConnell, the Courier-Journal reported. “When he says that raising the minimum wage is the last thing he wants to do, Mitch McConnell apparently thinks that over 60 percent of Kentuckians are wrong. Only 32 percent oppose

Comments:
This is not good! I´m not wild about McConnell but he´s obviously better than a Democrat. Bevin is trailing McConnell by 26 points. I guess the establishment Republicans would see that as a victory.

Reports of a poll last week indicated Bevins over Grimes-----too early for polls.

I don´t see much difference between McConnell and democrats. At least if he loses, he won´t be able to continue to shame Republicans. We can no longer reward poor performance..I would rather swallow the bitter pill.

SO the Libs trash all the coal jobs then apparently blame McConnell...which means the DIMS candidate will save their jobs.

How criminal is this?

McConnell should start supporting Cruz, lee and rand and stop coddling McCain and other dem lites.
Sexual predator Clinton is campaigning for Grimes as Dems continue the REAL Wars on Women, Coal, Our Healthcare system and our finances through IRS lawlessness.

McConnell is a tough campaigner and he´s won close races before. He´ll win his primary and we´ll see about the general election. It would be truly devastating to lose that seat to a Democrat.

#1 Is right. Polls don´t mean much right now . . . Well, excepting the republican primaries because they´re fairly close; and, that has to be McConnell´s concern. It looks as if Bevins may oust him.

Nonetheless, only 32% of Kentuckians are right about the minimum wage issue, but the majorities dissatisfaction with McConnell is well placed. So, on average, they´re average.

#2 says : "I don´t see much difference between McConnell and democrats." If so, then he´s either not looking or he wants a democrat to win. There is one clear and plain difference between any any republican (including McConnell) and any democrat: A vote for the republican is a vote against Harry Reid´s and Obama´s continued control of the Senate, and all the harm to America that entails. For one thing, it is very likely that a seat on the SCOTUS will open up in before Obama leaves office. If the democrats still control the Senate, that seat will be occupied by another Obama left-wing justice, and America will be lost--maybe forever.

Can not believe that posters here would gladly see McConnell´s seat lost to a Democrat. This is like happily letting your country be overtaken by Russia because you don´t like the moderate in power. Just form your own party, Tea Partiers.

The obvious solution is to support Matt Bevins in every way possible - please Kentuckians do not believe the ´democrats are for jobs´ mantra, they would prefer you lose your job and cling to the government teat for life support.

Old Bull frauds and hustlers like McConnell, Cochran, Cornyn, among others, should have been retired by the voters ages ago. As for the embarrassingly absurd SCOTUS assertion, the R´s have installed arguably the most radical leftist Justices in the history of the republic. Eisenhower gave us Earl Warren and Wm Brennan, Nixon, Harry Blackmun and Bush, David Souther to name just a few. Hardly a surprise, as all 3 were secular progressive establishment types who governed accordingly. Nothing has changed in DC for 4 generations because the same gang holds power; alas re-electing the same buffoons will change nothing.

Let´s all play a game. It´s called "Guess What RINO Squish Elitist Traitor said the following recently?":

"We have way too much partisanship in Washington. And it shouldn´t be a function of, you know, the Democrats are this, therefore the Republicans have to be opposed to it. Or vice versa. Shutting down the government is ridiculous. This idea of us being bomb throwers, being zealots who, ´It´s my way or the highway´--that´s craziness. Government is about negotiation, government is about compromise."

If McConnell loses and a Communist Lefty takes his senate seat, he´s go no one to blame but himself.

He´s the idiot who´s pandered to the "independents," played kissy face with the likes of Dingy Harry, and trashed his base.

If folks in his state would rather sit it out than have to get drunk and hold their noses in order to vote for this old mealey mouthed, pussyfutting fool, then so be it.

And when you think about it, he probably don´t give a flip anyway. His feather bed is all turned down for him and Godiva chocolates are on his pillow. He´s gotten rich knifing We, The People in the back, and why give him another term to do more of the same. I despise him.

Hope McConnell loses his primary and then has to support Bevin against the Democrat.

#9 & #10 must like the ´leader McC´ following like a hangdog the path set by Harry Reid. The RINOs are getting confident they´ll re-take control of the Senate - if KY voters are not smart enough to vote a new Republican Senator from their state - it should be fitting for the rest of the Senators to have a new majority LEADER, and McConnell can attend as a citizen ´that helped make it happpen´. In either case get the surrender-toady out of there.

When McC won his Senate seat in 1984, never having never worked at a for-profit organization in his young life, the Total Federal Debt was a quaint $1.377 Trillion.
Today it is $17 Trillion. Thank you for your service such a great leader - our children, our grandchildren and their children will live with the damage you have passed on to their generations by your behavior in destroying the freedom of low taxes and the opportunity of an unburdened US economy growing at a sustainable rate like Reagan had created - and producing millions of jobs and prosperity for the entire nation.

@26: Easy to fix the problem. May I recommend that you only support and vote conservatives. If more folks would do that then we may have a chance to enrich the gop[ with principled and conservative officials.
To be clear, if people continue to support and vote corrupt gop progressives (RINOs), then indeed the republicans will lose and go the way of the dodo bird.
Status quo supporters have a choice...elect conservatives or lose.

Some of you don´t understand that this "Teach ´Em A Lesson!" stuff NEVER WORKS. If MConnell loses to Grimes he and all of the established GOPers will take it as proof that they should have reached out further to liberals.

And since I don´t live in Kentucky can someone please explain to me how, if polls show McConnell leading Bevin by about 2-1 among Republicans, Bevin would make a stronger candidate in the general against Grimes?

# 28 is right about establishment GOP candidates who lose their party´s nomination. They will endorse the Dem nominee and badmouth the conservative who wins the nomination.
Lesson learned from Bob McDonnell and Bill Bolling in the VA Governor´s election this year. They did everything they could to work against Ken Cuccinelli because Bolling thought it was "his turn." We the People said otherwise and nominated Cuccinelli.
McConnell will do the same if he loses.

McConnell has been a willing participant in growing the federal government blob ever bigger for 3 decades, I believe. Anyone thinking Mitch deserves to have a rose pinned on his nose is not thinking clearly. I suspect the big $$$ boys (Dems too) will do whatever it takes to drag OLD Mitch over the finish line. Democrats LOVE having McConnell as SML. Make no mistake about it. Another thing, if he is stupid enough to not even be able to strongly publicly fight for Kentucky´s coal jobs, he is beneath contempt and deserves what Democrats do to him.

It´s sad that the Rovettes have been reduced to singing background for one another. However, games aside, there are serious issues at stake here. Mitch McConnell is a GOP machine politician who, based on his recent performance and behavior, doesn´t even deserve to be minority leader, nevermind majority leader. The calculated efforts to undermine McConnell´s primary opponent are consistent with the incumbency racket that too many Republicans place ahead of conservative principles. This is what´s killing McConnell in Kentucky. He´s lost faith with the base and may very well lose the election if nominated. It doesn´t help that he looks like a half-faced caricature of the Republican Party: Old, incumbent, and out of touch.

Given all of this, I would expect the folks who really care about winning to dump this chinless wonder and rally behind the primary challenger, who is at least not toxic to the base and hasn´t been marinated in 28 years of Washington incumbency during a "throw the bums out" election.

But they won´t. They´ll denigrate Bevin, nominate McConnell, and then blame us when he blows the general and loses to a Democrat in Kentucky. It´s what they do: Nominate losers and then blame conservatives when they lose.

Obama administration’s ‘Culture of

Washington Times, by Valerie Richardson    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 10:09:44 PM     Post Reply
Sending scores of armed agents along with helicopters and dogs to confront an elderly Nevada rancher over grazing fees may seem like overkill, but critics say it’s not inconsistent with the federal government’s recent approach to environmental enforcement. The simmering truce between the Bundys and the Bureau of Land Management comes after high-profile raids last year by armed federal agents on small-time gold miners in tiny Chicken, Alaska, and guitar makers at the Gibson Guitar facilities in Tennessee. That doesn’t include more subtle threats, such as recent efforts by the Obama administration to raise grazing fees or pressure

Congressman: Obama ´Has Been Forced

Rep. Joe Garcia (D-Fla.) is among the Democrats pressing Congress to take up immigration reform. On Tuesday, he told a conference call that deportations are breaking families apart and leaving children in foster care. "So the human toll has been horrific. This president, by implementation of existing law, has been forced to deport a huge number of Americans." Although Garcia may consider the deportees to be "Americans," legally they are not. But they might become citizens if Garcia and other immigration advocates get their way. Democrats are urging Republicans to sign their discharge petition, which would force a House vote on

Key members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform expressed outrage at revelations made in newly released emails showing ex-IRS official Lois Lerner coordinating with the Department of Justice on prosecuting nonprofit groups. One committee member said the emails prove why the IRS is “scared to give up the rest of Lois Lerner’s emails.” IRS commissioner John Koskinen was recently threatened with contempt for stonewalling the committee’s investigation. Koskinen claimed in a hearing that it could take years to provide the documents requested by Oversight. “The release of new documents

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Thank God for Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George. His investigation of what turned out to be the IRS abuse scandal may well have saved the Constitution and the nation. For his fair and impartial investigation into the Internal Revenue Service’s abuse of Americans who dissent from President Obama’s agenda, Democrats have called for an investigation of him. George should not be investigated, but perhaps the Democrats who want him investigated — Reps. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) and Matt Cartwright (D-PA) — should be. Their call for an investigation of the investigator might constitute interference with the ongoing investigation

Obama to meet with healthcare leaders

President Obama is scheduled to meet with health insurance executives and state insurance commissioners on Thursday, just two days after ObamaCare´s special enrollment period officially closed. The meetings, which will include at least one photo-op, are a chance for the White House to telegraph unity with health insurance companies and state regulators involved with the rollout of the healthcare law. The announcement of new enrollment figures was also expected separately on Thursday. It is possible Obama could reveal the numbers before one of the two meetings. Total exchange enrollment is likely to have risen since last week, when Health and Human Services Secretary

Colo. eminent domain case

Breckenridge, Colo. - A contentious eminent domain case in which a local government sought to take private backcountry land for open space has been settled, with the landowners agreeing to a $115,000 sale. "To me, what just came out of it is, you can´t win, you can´t fight the government," landowner Ceil Barrie said Wednesday. She and her husband, Andy, owned ten acres of land perched at 11,000 feet elevation in Breckenridge. The property, with breathtaking views, was a private patch of land surrounded by White River National Forest. An old, uninhabited day-use cabin, an outhouse and a shuttered gold

Sunday, George Stephanopoulos announced that Laura Ingraham was joining ABC News as a contributor. So the network that long employed a Cuomo and still employs a Clinton "bimbo" destroyer has formalized a relationship with a conservative pundit. To the Left, this is yet another example of the mainstream media attempting to compensate for a liberal bias which never was significant and vanished altogether roughly forty years ago. They want no debate. In a Tuesday piece for Salon, Heather Digby Parton, who blogs at her own site under the name Digby, asserted that the conservative claim of liberal media bias is "absurd"

President Obama called House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) to prod Republicans to bring up immigration reform, but the conversation apparently did not go well. Cantor issued a blistering statement afterward, criticizing Obama for calling him just after delivering what he called “a partisan statement” that indicated “no desire to work together” on immigration, a top priority for Obama that House Republicans have largely ignored. “After five years, President Obama still has not learned how to effectively work with Congress to get things done,” Cantor said in the statement. “You do not attack the very people you hope to engage in

After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

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

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,
