Payback time:
GOP incumbents learn how to win

Politico, by Alexander Burns

Original Article

Posted By:Honeybadger, 5/21/2014 7:50:08 AM

In 2014, the tea party insurrection is starting to look more like the Boston Massacre.In state after state this primary season, entrenched politicians are proving that incumbency counts for something after all, leveraging the stature and financial firepower that comes with high office to demolish challengers from the activist right.In three states Tuesday night, long-serving lawmakers rolled over tea party opponents. Eight-term Idaho Rep. Mike Simpson beat back a challenger supported by Club for Growth, the most influential conservative group targeting elected officials in primaries. In Pennsylvania, Rep. Bill Shuster easily dispatched an opponent once touted as a tea party

By making the incumbents respond to the TEA Party the TEA Party is winning anyway.

The pubbies´ rich white guy schtick may gave worked in the primaries so far, but once the msm gets their hands on them by November, then a different story. There´s just one problem - how the pubbies will get folks to vote including a whole bunch of really PO´d TP´ers. Or do the pubbies even give a rats behind if they win or lose.

Two opposing possibilities occur to me. One: Republican primary voters are smart enough to realize polished candidates have the best chance of winning.
Or two: Tea Partiers/Conservative purists will stay home on election day because their candidate didn´t win the primary.
We either win the Senate and stalemate Obama for the next 2 years or lose the Senate and Harry Reid continues his maniacal reign as majority leader and helps Obama destroy America.

Republicans can afford losing the Senate seat from Kentucky, and support the rest of R candidates elsewhere.
We take the majority, but McConnell will be gone.

I hope McConnell loses in Nov. He´s absolutely useless .

Imagine taking the Senate in November and McConnell sitting on his couch in January watching someone else become majority leader. Brings a smile to my face.

We need to win every possible Senate seat in November. That includes the Kentucky seat. Trying to figure out how to win control of the Senate while kneecapping each GOP candidate you don´t care for doesn´t sound like a plan for victory to me.

Let´ see . . . will I vote for a democrat who is a member of a party whose policies are sending the country rapidly down the drain, or for an establishment republican who only wants to slow the speed at which the country is circling the drain? This ain´t a ballgame. We aren´t cheering for ´teams´. I seriously don´t care if the letter beside the name of the person I vote for is D, R, I or Z. I´ll vote for anyone who I believe will actively fight to reverse the downward slide of this country into oblivion. I will not vote for anyone strictly because of their party. If there is no one in the race who I believe will actually stand with Cruz, Gohmert and Hensarling to fight those who are willing to let this country sink under the waters of history, then why bother voting? I do NOT vote party for party´s sake. McConnell is only slightly better than Pelosi. Neither really cares about the county, only about holding onto what power they have, and to do that they have to promote their parties. At least Pelosi is honest about it.

The 2014 GOP Kentucky primary was won in 2012 when famous Tea Party Senator and author of the book The Tea Party Goes to Washington, Rand Paul, did a 180, blessed his family´s campaign guru joining McConnell´s campaign, and said tea partiers would like McConnell. In 2013 Rand Paul formally endorsed McConnell, said he would not back a TP challenger in Kentucky. That effectively ended chances of a serious challenge to McConnell--who personifies the exact opposite of what the TP was about. McConnell demolished nothing, Rand Paul did the whole job for him. Rand dealt a severe blow to the entire anti-establishment movement. National TP groups have been counter productive at best. This doesn´t change the job ahead one bit.

What #9 said. You don´t have to look any further than here in GA. Last night we saw a number of TP´ers fighting each other, thereby allowing the guy who won to coast to victory. This is nonsense. Some of these guys need to grow up and do what´s right for the country, not just for themselves.

Yea, I´m looking at you Gingrey and Broun.

It´s not enough to "win every seat possible", especially when the establishment Republicans look and act like the other side. The establishment Republicans are interested only in keeping their power base. As long as the establishment RINOs keep winning, nothing is going to change.

And that´s the truth. I challenge anyone here -- anyone --to prove me wrong.

While I don´t like RINO´s, the big deal in this upcoming election is taking the senate. Even with RINO´s it stalemates Obama´s leftist appointments including judges . That is reason enough for me to vote for any republican even if I have to hold my nose doing it. With Obama president there is no way any conservative agenda can happen no matter if tea party candidates are elected or not.

In a very sly way, the establishment GOP is gradually adopting most of the Tea Party "platform", such as it is, in order to bring them on board.

Two problems have presented which the GOP needs to address and it appears they are doing so:

1. The Tea Party has to be happy with most of the "establishment" policies, or they won´t vote.

2.The establishment cannot alienate the Tea Party by appearing to "reach across the aisle", a tactic doomed to failure on every level.

It also seems, thank God, that the Tea Party has come to realize that winning a point isn´t the same as winning elections.

You have no power to do diddly if you win on principle and lose elections. We MUST win the Senate.

It remains to be seen that the Republicans will wage an effective campaign against Democrats like they did against the Tea Party. Neither party wanted the Tea Party gaining power.

I suspect there are a few Republicans in trouble. Both Senate and Governor level.

Prediction: The Republicans will take back the Senate, but only by one or two votes, and there won´t be any major changes with regard to policy. When that happens, watch the Republicans blame the Democrats even though they have a majority.

I would not read too much into the failure of some Tea Party candidates. The candidates had sufficient conservative credentials to satisfy the TP but they were otherwise, to be honest, not entirely game-worthy and they were underfunded facing some incumbents with deep political networks. The TP is still learning and a few TP candidates did win. All many of us are interested in at this time is to break the Democrat hold on the Senate and that´s the bottom line.

I agree with the premise that the TP is "changing" the GOP; i.e., shifting their platform to attract TP voters. However, these losers WILL revert, as soon as, they are elected and back in DC. Dump ´em.

Sounds like the majority sentiment expressed above is that if one´s favorite TP candidate didn´t survive the primary, then there´s no point in voting for the "RINO" in the upcoming election.
So let Harry Reid continue to run amok and rule by decree in the Senate and let Obama appoint a bunch of hard-core leftists to the bench for the next 2 and 1/2 years.´
Does that sound like a plan or a recipe for disaster??

I was Tea Party before Tea Party was cool, and I´m Tea Party after it is ridiculed and I call bullcrappy on the sour grapes crowd. If the TP holds the Sword of Damocles over GOP candidates, they´ll think twice before compromising away our principles. Fact: they´d rather not fight a primary battle. Secondly, this straw man ´fast´ or ´slow´ distruction crowd sets my blood boiling. Cast the baby out in the bathwater much? Put down your marbles and run home? Who gave you lessons in petulance, Obama? Stop the bleeding, people! Do no harm! Get hold of the majority and work on the leadership. Walk before you run and keep your eyes on the prize. Freedom from tyranny. All it takes for evil to succeed is for good men to do nothing.

The GOP Repstablishment can not win them all nor can Tea Party candidates win them all. It´s going to be a long slow painful battle that must be fought or we will never have any chance of turning things around. Meanwhile the GOP Elites have taken up the Tanya Harding method of campaigning and winning elections. The dirtier they play the madder I get.

I WANT McCONNELL & BOEHNER GONE! I don´t trust them.

The situation in GA was unusual. There were several good R candidates. It was not a loss to get any of them, but it would be a HUGE loss to get Michelle Nunn (D) as our senator.
We had a good gubernatorial candidate in Pennington, but he was too new to have Deal´s power. However, we certainly don´t want Jason Carter (Jimmuh´s grandson) as governor.

This, among other reasons, is why the 17th Amendment should be repealed. Senators were NEVER intended to be elected by "the people." The people already had/has their representatives. The members of the House. Senators were supposed to represent the STATES before the federal Congress. That is why every state was given the same amount of Senators. Otherwise, large states with large populations could ride over the smaller states. The Senate was intended to equalize that power. Also, the entire election process has to be completely revamped. Over time, the incumbents has created laws and rules the make in almost impossible for anyone to win against an incumbent. It´s really stomach churning when you think about it. And don´t forget the deals that incumbents can make to those who have large amounts of money and want more. As I´ve said many times, the entire DC scene is a totally corrupt swamp that needs to be entirely cleaned out.

Running Tea Partiers against each other is total insanity.
The Tea Party supporters must pick the strongest to run alone
How else do we have a chance against the communist RINO´D
lifers? Point two, at this stage, our last ditch stand is to vote for the Mitch idiot who makes it, just to have another R vote in the senate. Let´s face it, past elected tea partiers, Rand is a perfect example, have not been strong, visibly strong, once elected. If they don´t talk and act like Ted and Trey, they aren´t much use anyway.

We need an avalanche of whistleblowers to wake up the Mitch McConnels the McLains the Rubio Tea Party traitors ....... and the good news, we´re getting them
As horrifying as it is, the growing numbers of wounded vet whistleblowers, is creating a huge break in the dam of silence, everybody needs to speak up, shout from the rooftops, go to your local smiling multi racial newscasters,
ask them embarrassing questions, annoy them for censoring local news, they´re criminals, too. It´s not just the censoring Steve Pelley and Diane Sawyer.
Fox News is the only TV investigating operation.

President Obama betrayed the highest obligation of his office — safeguarding national security — in trading five hard-core Taliban for the American serviceman who appears to have deserted in Afghanistan. The five sworn enemies of the United States are now in the Gulf state of Qatar, where they are free to come and go as they like, beyond the watch of American agents. In just one year, they will be free to return to Afghanistan to fight there and stage terror attacks far beyond that country’s borders.

The feds are investigating whether golf legend Phil Mickelson, billionaire investor Carl Icahn and Vegas gambling kingpin William “Billy” Walters took part in an insider-trading scheme, federal law-enforcement sources told The Post Friday. The FBI and the Securities and Exchange Commission suspect that Mickelson and Walters illegally traded on nonpublic information from Icahn about his investments in public companies — specifically his attempted takeover of ­Clorox, the sources said. The two-year investigation was launched after Icahn made a $10 billion offer for Clorox in July 2011, causing the stock to skyrocket amid a rash of suspicious trading, according to sources with knowledge

On Thursday, Charlie Rose spent the entire commercial-free hour of his PBS show interviewing Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice, yet never asked her a single question about the 2012 Benghazi attacks or her role in disseminating faulty talking points afterward. In fact, the B-word never escaped Rose’s nor Rice’s lips during the entire show. [Video below.

Early in the interview, Rose asked where in the world America’s core interests were under attack at the moment. Rice pointed to the ongoing terrorist

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

Contrary to what those who defend the right to own high-powered assault rifles believe, not all guns are created equal. Due to a combination of availability, portability and criminal usage the following five types of guns are the country's most dangerous. School Shootings: Widely Reported Tragedies Since 2000 - Using firearm trace data from the ATF, as well as FBI homicide records, we determined the types of guns most often recovered from crime scenes and/or used in murders.

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

The headline in the Washington Post on June 4 was clear: Rove-backed American Crossroads won’t get involved in Cochran runoff Said the Post story the day after Tea Party favorite Chris McDaniel had defeated six-term Mississippi GOP Senator Thad Cochran in the first round of the state’s GOP primary: American Crossroads, a GOP establishment organization, has decided to shift its political focus almost entirely to the general election and will not be spending money in the likely runoff election to decide the Mississippi Senate nomination that was virtually deadlocked after Tuesday night. […] “Other than Alaska, we have completed our work on Senate primaries

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it. “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News. Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged Americans not to forget race while working for justice and equality in their country. “As it stands, our society is not yet color blind -- nor should it be -- given the disparities that still afflict and divide us.” Holder explained, “We must be color brave, and we must never forget that all are made better and more prosperous if all are given equal opportunities.” Holder made his remarks during a speech at Howard University on Tuesday for the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Civil Rights Act. “We must take into account not only the

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin
