There´s nothing undemocratic
about strategic voting

Washington Examiner [DC], by Noemie Emery

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 7/2/2014 5:35:24 AM

Mississippi sore loser Chris McDaniel and his supporters wouldn´t like me too much. For many years in the state where I was born, I voted in primaries for people I didn´t like, didn´t agree with and had no intention of voting for later -- secure in the thought I was doing my best in a bad situation I had no part in bringing about. Yes, years before Operation Chaos occurred to Rush Limbaugh, I had been voting strategically in New York. Here´s how it all came about. Back in the Stone Age when I began voting, I was a genuine

Comments:
As Emery says, Limbaugh pushed it in 2008 and his fans saw nothing wrong with the tactic.

This cracks me up. This poor fool is completely ignoring the illegal votes by her favored democrats.
Free clue, Noemie: It is illegal to vote in the Democrat primary, then vote in a Republican run-off.

Journalists are truly stupid people.

´Strategic voting´ is not the same thing as ´vote buying´. And if insulting and libeling half of their voters is the Republican Party´s idea of strategy, they might want to rethink that plan.

Strategic voting? Back in the old days we had another word for it. We called it cheating.
The fact that the rinos feel the need to defend their behavior is evidence enough that they knew it was wrong. For this they deserve to lose and I hope they do.
I guess a politician will do what he has to if he cant win on his ideas or his record.
Our rinos better not complain about the democrats cheating. They are now in the moral septic tank with their good friends across the aisle.

Dishonest column - what happened in Mississippi (and Ms. Emery knows it) was more than Democrats innocently crossing over to vote in a Republican primary (of course, we´re finding out that many Democrats voted in both primaries - which is a no-no). And Mr. McDaniel is not an "Akin in waiting", what a dishonest thing for her to say. The fact is that Cochran´s people, along with helpers from the Establishment, they slashed and trashed the Tea Party and, with robo calls and flyers, told the voters in the predominately black districts that the Tea Party would take everything they have away from them. Another lie.

It has to be proven whether or not Cochran´s people paid people to vote for him.

And Haley Barbour wants his nephew to take Cochran´s seat when it is decided it is time for him to leave.

If the Cochran camp appealed to crossover voters on the basis of his spending and bringing home the bacon plus support of President Obama, I would have no problem with this strategy in a state with an open primary.

However, using race against the party you supposedly represent is vile and particularly the people guided by our Founding Documents which intended to not create a Washington Centric government.

On top of that, they decided to treat Blacks as racists instead of voters in their appeal just as liberals treat women as "ovary centered" instead of intellectually capable individuals. This is foul stuff. I am appalled that I didn´t see this challenged on the Sunday shows but those there got the result they desired and couldn´t see any of this.

This only strengthens my resolve against the "Ruling Class".

There is something wrong with a party establishment using votes from the opposition to disenfranchise the MAJORITY of its own voters. There is something wrong with passing out money to get people to vote. There is something wrong with people voting twice.

What a person does with its own vote is their own business.

Naomi don´t try to defend the indefensible.

First of all some people DID illegally vote in democrat and republican primaries which is illegal.

Secondly, what is wrong is that if you have to go to people of believe the opposite of what your party stands for then maybe you not the person to represent your party.

Big difference between an individual making an informed choice to vote strategically and the shameful shenanigans of throwing the race card down on the table to encourage what could be illegal votes against someone from your own party. Apples and oranges. And intellectually lazy and dishonest to say they´re the same.

The writer´s argument is undermined in the first few paragraphs: " I voted in primaries for people I didn´t like, didn´t agree with and had no intention of voting for later". The implication being that the Democrats voting for Cochran have no intention of carrying him across the finish line in November. So, if the Democrats will not continue supporting him and he couldn´t win with Republican votes alone in the Primary, how is he going to win in November? The answer is he will not but it is the height of Stupidity and Arrogance to think that Republicans will now have no other choice to vote for him. This is the GOP today, Stupid and Arrogant. This writer represents these qualities clearly and the reference to the Founder´s wishing to undermine parties is a clear example of ignorance to add to the list.

Well, OP, if you can show where Limbaugh advocated that people vote in two primaries, you would be partially correct. Otherwise, your point completely falls down.

Regardless, it would have been different if the Dems had advocated the disruption of the GOP primary. Instead, it was the GOP Establishment (your heroes) that corrupted the primary.

Why can´t the cheerleaders just admit their heroes screwed this one up?

If McDaniel is unsuccessful in overturning the election, then MS. conservatives should vote for the "D" in November. This would be purely and simply an exercise in revenge and behavior modification at the same time. If the establishment and its acolytes on this site object, too bad and be thankful that this suggestion only applies to the immediate insult, and not through the nation at large. At least, not yet.

I have no problem with following the law and winning with Dem votes. That´s not the issue. The issue is the tactics used to acquire those votes and the betrayal and slandering of Cochran´s own party. Tea Partiers were portrayed as segregationists. Voters were bought off just so a bunch of K Street thieves could have the Senator they bought and paid for back. At some point ethics and character have to count. In a race between Cochran and Childers I´d vote Childers.

Well Noemie, then you are part of the problem. This trick was invented for the very purpose that you applaud, which is to thwart the interests of those in a political party. It is used as a tool to interrupt the wishes of one party or the other. If you were interested in a true vote of the feelings of those in a particular state, you wouldn´t like this at all. The time to finally chose is in the final election. This is why we dislike the behavior of both political parties. I applaud Chris McDaniel to attempt to have the truth come out about the horrible practice of buying votes and stuffing the ballot boxes with fraudulent absentee ballots. Enough is enough giving in to these political felons.

Lawmakers came out swinging on Thursday afternoon after the State Department issued a blanket denial regarding statements that Secretary of State John Kerry made to members of Congress earlier that morning about the potential need for new sanctions on Iran. Kerry was widely reported to have told a group of Jewish lawmakers Thursday morning that the administration is open to a new sanctions bill, as news emerged from Vienna that U.S. negotiators would likely be unable to force concessions from Tehran before the July 20 deadline for nuclear talks. The administration’s narrative—which has long held that new pressure on Iran is not

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie arrived in Iowa Thursday, surrounded by a media gaggle befitting a presidential frontrunner, just as new poll was released showing him trailing Hillary Clinton by a single point.

That noisy flutter above the rooftops is the sound of chickens coming home, trying to find a place on the crowded Democratic roost. Chaos on the border grows noisier, with a backlash in unexpected places: The governor of Connecticut, a Democrat and a fully credentialed liberal, tells President Obama to keep his children’s crusade out of liberal, nice, compassionate Connecticut. The ambitious governor of Maryland tells the president, his great friend, that enough is enough, he agrees it’s sad what’s happening with the children, but the solution is not in his backyard. Hundreds of rallies are scheduled across the nation this weekend.

Though facts on the downing of the Malaysian Airlines flight over eastern Ukraine remain hard to pin down, the event could easily end up being a game-changer. While it’s impossible to rule out that the Ukrainian or Russian militaries are responsible for the tragedy, the rebels have been the ones bringing down Ukrainian military aircraft throughout the course of the conflict—with a marked uptick in attacks just this week. Radio chatter leaked by Kiev, purportedly between rebel commanders and their Russian intelligence handlers, seems to indicate that rebels brought down the plane thinking it belonged to the Ukrainian military:

With House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., shooting down a bipartisan bill to address the crisis of unaccompanied children crossing the southern border Wednesday, it looks increasingly likely Congress might wind up at an impasse just before their five-week summer recess. Until now, Pelosi had said that potential changes to a 2008 law that prevents speedy deportations of unaccompanied children from countries other than Mexico and Canada was not a "deal breaker" for Democrats. That´s what two Texas lawmakers, Republican Sen. John Cornyn and Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas, are aiming to do with their bill that would mandate the same

A kidnapping and ransom case in the Carolinas suggests just how active Mexican drug cartels have become in the U.S. Today, authorities identified three purported members of a Mexican drug cartel as the alleged kidnappers of a South Carolina man last week, according to a criminal complaint filed in U.S. District of Court of South Carolina. The American hostage, who authorities said was drug courier for the cartel, apparently was kidnapped on July 9 and held for ransom, with demands for as much as $400,000 coming from unknown cartel members in Mexico.

The reluctance of Hamas’s “military wing”—a misnomer for the more extreme elements of its extremist leadership—to accept the cease-fire designed by Egypt is, well, logical. Let’s admit it. They do not wish to accept defeat, and the Egyptian terms are a defeat for Hamas. By attacking Israel, what has Hamas wrought? Considerable damage was done to Gaza by Israeli air power, and Gazans will be picking up the pieces for months if not longer. But Hamas proved unable to kill one single Israeli with its hundreds of rockets, and all its special tricks—tunnels, longer-range rockets, a drone—also failed. Nor could

House Republicans are moving quickly to address the growing humanitarian crisis on the southern border, possibly holding votes as soon as next week. As Congress moves closer to the monthlong August recess, the speedy action sends a clear message to Senate Democrats: Take it or leave it. Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), incoming Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and a group of top lawmakers working on the border crisis are set to file a bill that very closely mirrors the legislation crafted by Texas lawmakers Sen. John Cornyn, a Republican, and Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar.

"We live in a complex world and at a challenging time," Obama said. Obama touched on the laundry list of global flashpoints situations during a statement from the White House on Wednesday — the disputed elections in Afghanistan, the negotiations on Iran´s nuclear program, the Israeli-Palestinian crisis, and, finally, the conflict in Ukraine. The most significant recent development in these situations was the announcement of new sanctions on Russia shortly before the president spoke. Obama described those
