McConnell ready to move past primary,
but GOP repair work awaits

Lexington Herald-Leader [KY], by Sam Youngman

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 4/30/2014 7:48:39 AM

Matt Bevin appeared agitated as he tried to get closer to Mitch McConnell. When two of the Senate minority leader´s staffers blocked Bevin´s path to McConnell at Saturday night´s Fayette County Reagan Day dinner, Bevin called them "pathetic." When a Herald-Leader reporter approached Bevin, who is challenging McConnell in the May 20 GOP primary, he responded with a stream of criticism. Bevin then went to the other side of a crowd of people gathered to shake McConnell´s hand, but McConnell aide Terry Carmack stepped between them. As the senator was pulled away in the other direction, Bevin turned around, exasperated: "Did you notice the

I don´t know the political slant of this paper, but judging from the report, the writer is trying hard to portray both candidates in negative light, Bevin as a whiny hothead and McConnell as an aloof aristocrat.

McConnell is a small petulant little man who refuses to shake the hand of his opponent and then proceeds to make obnoxious statements about winning.

I hope Kentucky voters see McConnell for who he is and vote him out. That would send shock waves through the Republican Party unlike any other.

How about it Kentucky?

I´m with you #3 but Bevin is running an inept campaign. A strong candidate may have pulled the upset but Bevin has failed to engage the voters. Sloppy operation at best. Who picked this guy?

Bevin is an excellent candidate ! A stong business man, articulate, 9 children, some adopted from Ethiopia.
He hasn´t had 30+ years to "slick" up campaigning, and certainly doesn´t have the money either.
McConnell is getting major contributions from other RINO warchests (those who aren´t running in 2014).
Beven is depending on the little guys.

Mitch McConnell is a bad choice. He has been ineffectual in fighting for conservative principles and ineffective in fighting against Obama. He has run a poisonous primary campaign devoid of ideas. He has been abetted in this by the usual hoarse whisperers on this site, who live to attack anyone who threatens the GOP incumbency racket. Meanwhile, Mitch McConnell is less popular in his home state than Barak Obama.

McConnell is a lose-lose proposition. If he wins the nomination, we may very well lose the seat to the Democrats. Even if he wins the seat, we will continue losing the fight against the Democrats in Washington.

If you like how things have been going, re-nominate Mitch McConnell. If you don´t, you have a choice.

#4, He may be a great person but sadly that´s often not enough to run a political campaign. I don´t know who picked him but I can tell you who for sure is stirring the steamy cauldron behind the scenes. The Demos are LTAO. Once again. They just sit back and observe all the ammo we spray in a situation like this and then use it against us later. How we can do this over and over again and not learn from it is beyond my comprehension.

Bevin has McConnell pooping his pants right now. McConnell has been running all kind of slimey attack ads that are filled with outright lies and he is afraid to debate Benins. Polls show Bevins closing in at a steady rate.

#8, do you have a source for those numbers? The most recent polling I´ve seen has McConnell up by anywhere from 27 to 42 points over Bevin. Grimes will be the bigger challenge for Senator McConnell.

It´s McConnell over Bevin 51-34, according to a poll reported April 26.

www.prweb.com/releases/2014/04/prweb11796121htm.

McConnell has the support of 64.8% of Republican voters, and a larger share of support among independents than does Grimes.

JACKSON — State Sen. Chris McDaniel, still refusing to give up his challenge to incumbent U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran, said Friday via e-mail his campaign had found 8,300 questionable ballots across the state from the June 24 Republican primary runoff. He said many of those “were unquestionably cast by voters ineligible to participate in the June 24th runoff election” that McDaniel lost to Cochran McDaniel promised a Wednesday news conference “to discuss the evidence we have documented and our next steps.” McDaniel has said before he intends to file a legal challenge to the June 24 election where Cochran defeated him by 194,932

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. kept a list of dozens of women filed under the letter “G” in his cellphone, a code that his late wife believed stood for “goomah,” the Italian slang for mistress. Two of the women listed in this digital blackbook factor into what should be an interesting summer for the environmental activist and son of the slain US senator. The first is “Curb Your Enthusiasm” actress Cheryl Hines, whom Kennedy began dating the year they both filed for divorce. The two plan to wed soon. The other is Greenwich, Conn., homemaker Chelsea Chapman Kirwan, who has been romantically linked to

A huge question in Democratic politics - other than “When is Hillary going to announce?” - concerns whether or not Senator Elizabeth Warren (D – Cherokee Nation) will run for president. If Hillary does not run, it is almost certain that Warren will. Well-known for her populist and Occupy-esque perspectives on healthcare, taxes, income redistribution and everything in-between, she is one of the rising stars of the Democratic party. Anticipating that it could happen, we’re getting out in front and establish her as a storyteller, to put it nicely, about her wealth.

Sarah Palin´s impeachment nonsense

“Without borders, there is no nation,” former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin wrote in a Breitbart op-ed this week. “Obama knows this. Opening our borders to a flood of illegal immigrants is deliberate. This is his fundamental transformation of America ... President Obama´s rewarding of lawlessness, including his own, is the foundational problem here ... It´s time to impeach; and on behalf of American workers and legal immigrants of all backgrounds, we should vehemently oppose any politician on the Left or Right who would hesitate in voting for articles of impeachment.” That this desperate cry for attention (dangling participle and all)

REPORT: Only 1 in 45 Illegal Immigrant
Children Are Returned Home

The Obama administration estimates it will catch 90,000 illegal immigrant children by the end of the current budget year in September. Last year, fewer than 2,000 children were returned home to their native countries. Only 1 in 45 illegal alien children will be returned home. Clogged courts mean young immigrants face low odds of being sent back to their home countries. The Wall Street Journal reported: Thousands of children from Central America are undertaking a perilous journey to the U.S. border despite warnings from the U.S. that they will be sent back. In fact, many will get to stay. Data from immigration courts, along

One side effect from the chaos in Libya following the armed conflict in 2011 has been constant disruptions of the country’s considerable supplies to the global oil market. But while its output remains just a fraction of what it was under Qaddafi, it does seem to be rebounding recently, as Bloomberg reports: Libya pumped 300,000 barrels a day in June, down 73 percent from a year earlier, according to a Bloomberg survey of oil companies, producers and analysts. Output has risen to 350,000 barrels a day, National Oil Corp. spokesman Mohamed Elharari said by phone yesterday. This recent rebound notwithstanding, risks abound

William Palumbo, the head of "Blog" at the New York Young Republican Club, was dismayed when a friend sent him a photo of rainbow gay pride flags hanging from the U.S. Embassy in London last month.

The former live-in nanny to a family that says she wouldn´t leave after they fired her over a month ago says she feels exploited and taken advantage of by them. “I think they´re people that try to get something for nothing,” Diane Stretton, who’s been living in her car, told ABC News’ “20/20” about Marcella and Ralph Bracamonte. “I think they´re very cheap, and I think that they try to use people.” The Bracamontes’ lawyer, Marc Cohen, says they now have to right to change the locks after Stretton vacated the property.

A trio of potential Republican presidential candidates in the Senate is rebuffing President Obama over the influx of children from Central America across the southern border. But even as Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas, Rand Paul of Kentucky, and Marco Rubio of Florida blame Obama, there are differences among their critiques. Cruz took perhaps the boldest swipes at the president and his request for $3.7 billion in emergency funding to address the issue. Cruz was also the only one of the group to speak on the floor this week. Paul remained mostly quiet, having published an op-ed during the Independence

The special guest advertised on the invitation was former Democratic senator Sam Nunn, the candidate’s father, who represented Georgia in Washington for over two decades.

What is happening at the southern border is a true and actual crisis. News accounts justly use words like chaos, collapse and breakdown. They feature images of children—toddlers, 4- and 5-year-olds—being shuffled to warehouse holding centers, sleeping crowded at night on what look like pallets, covered only in Mylar blankets. "I never thought we´d have refugee camps in America," said Texas Sen. John Cornyn, "but that´s what it´s appearing." All this gives normal people a feeling of besiegement and foreboding. Is a nation without borders a nation? Washington´s leaders seem to recognize what´s happening as a political problem, not a real

President Obama ended a visit to the Lone Star State with an impromptu photo-op at Franklin Barbecue in Austin, Texas, rounding out a two-day trip that included numerous speaking engagements, raising millions of dollars for Democratic candidates and complaining loudly about Republican opposition. The president´s BBQ photo-op comes less than 24 hours after he said during a press conference Wednesday that he would not visit the U.S.-Mexico border because he´s not “interested in photo-ops.” “Hey guys! I hear the barbecue is pretty good here. Is that true?” Obama said Thursday as he cut directly to the front of the line. “I know

Sarah Palin wants to impeach Barack Obama. In an op-ed article published last week, the former Republican vice presidential nominee declared that the crisis on the southern border (where young illegal immigrants are being detained) "is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ´No, mas´." The Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner, thinks that´s loco. (Technically, he said, "I disagree".) For Republicans hoping to avoid the kind of drama that might derail what looks to be a very good midterm election year, this kind of call is both a nuisance and a trend.

BOSTON — Comedian Bill Cosby and his wife Camille are supporting protesters marching across Massachusetts in opposition to Kinder Morgan’s proposed natural gas pipeline. The couple, who own hundreds of acres of protected land in Shelburne Falls, about 100 miles west of Boston, have been opposed to the pipeline since the company notified them last winter of plans to survey their land. Through a spokesman, the couple said it was “astounding” that New England’s six governors support the proposal, which they said shows “disrespect for humans, flora and fauna.” Supporters of the $3.75 billion Northeast Pipeline Extension Project say it will provide
