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.

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Decades before the television show, a Marine Corps battalion decorated for extensive combat in World War II and Vietnam earned the nickname the "Walking Dead." Now the 1st Battalion, 9th Marine Regiment, which also saw action in Iraq and Afghanistan, is being deactivated during a ceremony Friday at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in North Carolina. The step comes as top U.S. military and political leaders are moving to trim the size of America´s military after more than a decade of war in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), the chairman of the House select committee on the attacks in Benghazi, Libya, says the panel´s work should be done by the end of 2015, according to a report. "Assuming cooperation from agencies, witnesses and the administration," Gowdy told The New York Times, the committee should have concluded its investigation before 2016. The timeline is relevant because Democrats say the committee is looking to tarnish Hillary Clinton, who was secretary of State during the attacks, and the closer the investigation gets to the presidential election, the more damage it could do. The Benghazi committee made headlines in May,

Sen. Ted Cruz is expanding his political operation, a move sure to stoke speculation that the Texas Republican plans to run for president in 2016. In recent weeks, the Cruz team signed contracts with three Republican consultants with national experience and ties to some of the early presidential primary states. Cruz has cultivated a national following and traveled to the early primary states often since winning his Senate seat in 2012. Yet his political team was relatively small and oriented almost exclusively toward Texas.

The company owned by Jerry Lundergan that is leasing a tour bus to the U.S. Senate campaign of his daughter, Alison Lundergan Grimes, does not appear to have the proper permits required to operate the charter bus. Grimes´ campaign tour bus has come under scrutiny in the last two weeks since Politico ran a story suggesting that the campaign paid less than the market rate to charter the bus, which if true would violate federal campaign finance law. The revelation that the bus itself could be operating outside the law keeps alive a story that has some focused more on Grimes´ mode

A large majority of Americans think the world is a more dangerous place than it was several years ago. And a terrorist group that was not even on the public’s radar a year ago – the Islamic militants known as ISIS or ISIL – today ranks near the top of its list of U.S. security threats. As the public’s views of global threats have changed, so too have opinions about America’s role in solving world problems.

Forty years ago, a relatively unknown youngster had fought his way to a slight advantage over former Nevada Gov. Paul Laxalt. But the challenger felt he needed a coup de grâce, so he raised questions about Laxalt´s family finances, wondering about the provenance and propriety of certain funds. Laxalt responded by putting his sister out front to explain how she had lived her life with a vow of poverty: She was a nun. The outrage was palpable; Laxalt was elected by 624 votes. The loser in that 1974 race was 34-year-old Harry Reid, whose putative killer instinct had killed the messenger (i.e. himself),

HOLLYWOOD, California—Picture a movie theater, packed for the opening night of a blockbuster film. Hundreds of strangers sit next to each other, transfixed. They tend to blink at the same time.

CULLMAN, Ala. — California is looking to bar the “Stars and Bars.” A bill sits on Gov. Jerry Brown’s desk to ban California from displaying or selling the Confederate flag or objects with images of it. The state’s Legislature passed the bill nearly unanimously last week.

The last two Republican candidates for president have been among the weakest GOP candidates in 50 years. Barack Obama presented Mitt Romney with a gift in 2012: A struggling economy, sluggish growth, a paucity of jobs, and a health care law that was extremely unpopular. In what should have been a landslide rejection of Obama´s policies, Romney flubbed it big time and allowed his opponent to define him - and Republicans - in the most unflattering way imaginable.
