Democrat Michelle Nunn leads
Georgia Senate race: poll

The Washington Times, by Seth McLaughlin

Original Article

Posted By:SpeedMaster, 8/25/2014 5:04:48 PM

Democrat Michelle Nunn is running ahead of David Perdue in the race for the U.S. Senate in Georgia. The WSB-TV poll found that Mrs. Nunn has 47 percent to 40 percent edge over Mr. Perdue. The libertarian candidate, Amanda Swafford, received 3 percent, and 10 percent of the respondents were undecided. The winner of the race will replace retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss. Mrs. Nunn, the daughter of former Georgia Sen. Sam Nunn, is seen as one of Democrats best bets to flip control of a GOP-held seat. Republicans need to flip six seats to win back the Senate.

Comments:
This cites a WSB-TV poll which basically means Atlanta. IMHO the "establishment" has blown it again, conservatives will sit this one out, I will vote for Nunn for reasons I have stated many times.

A vote for Nunn = a vote for Harry Reid. Is that what you really want?

I find this appalling. Michelle Nunn is another community organizer. She´s liberal and unqualified.

Who on this forum could possibly support her?

Great, poster - you´ll vote for Nunn. Thank you for giving us Harry Reid again! You are a great example of why we always will have Harry Reid in charge. We can´t win the close ones. Christine O´Donnell in Delaware, Todd Akin in Missouri. Whoever that guy was in Indiana.

The Democrats are politically smart, even though not smart in anything else. They´ll take a less-than-Marxist Democrat in Alaska and North Dakota, knowing that only one vote really counts- who is the majority leader? Once they have that, that party controls the agenda for the term.

I would would vote for anyone who has the "R" next to his or her name. Since I am in Massachusetts,yes, that might be a dreaded "RINO." But, without winning seats, you can´t do anything. We live in a democracy.

@#2: Leadership is the last ´quality´ necessary to hold higher office. Nunn will vote the way Harry Reid tells her to vote. They all do it.

Correction #3, we live in a constitutional Republic, and libtards keep pushing the meme that we live in a democracy because you can destroy a democracy much more easily than a representative Republic.

# 1 Let me ask you a question.

Do the current (thus those after the 2014 election) Republican Leaders in the Senate believe they are there to govern or to push conservative solutions (if they know what conservative means) to the countries problems. The last batch helped create the mess we have now.

Believe this poll was done by WSB; if so, perhaps it was just done in Atlanta. Never, never do I want to see Michelle Nunn represent Georgia - a community organizer who is probably counting on her dad´s name to help her. Two votes from this household will be cast for Perdue.

My big concern re this November election - voter fraud.

The OP is not only actively supporting Ms. Nunn, but is quite proud of his effort.

No, I don´t understand either. Why not just declare for the other side and stop pretending to be a conservative Republican? No conservative Republican could cast a vote for a Democrat and thus help Reid to stay in control and to help Obama pack the Supreme Court.

A vote for Perdue is a vote against Harry Reid.
Nunn has no experience to be in the Senate.

It may well be insane for an alleged conservative to support a Democrat who will vote for Harry Reid´s agenda, down the line, without question.

If OP´s thought is that packing the senate with clones of Elizabeth Warren will result in a Great Conservative Revolution in 2016, then that is the very definition of insanity. Or delusion. Or virus-induced delirium. NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. By the time 2016 rolls around, the majority of voters will be so addicted to entitlements that they´d vote for Karl Marx as president.

#12: Perhaps I can explain it to you, although, it won´t be to your satisfaction.

Although, the recent R primaries indicate a majority of R voters want kinder, malleable, and D lite candidates, like McCain, Romney, Alexander (Tenn.), et al, conservatives such as OP, and I, are tired of supporting those types of politicians. We´re not nuanced, enough, I guess, to see the differences between those type of R´s and D´s.

I don´t expect you to respond. You seem shy when asked to explain your positions. Nonetheless, it will be helpful if you give us (OP & I), your views on what will be different, based on the histories of when R´s were in control, if the R´s gain control of both the House, and Senate this time ´round . . ., or the presidency in 2016, for that matter, if the candidate is another McCain, Romney, Ryan type R.

I agree with you #12. Of course, I realize this puts both of us and anyone else who agrees in a position to be ridiculed and insulted by brainiacs in the "party" and being called "establishment". Of course, we are supposed to believe they are looking out for Conservatives... If it weren´t so blatantly dishonest, that would be hilarious. IMO, it matters not what they say, CONSERVATIVES will take the Senate back in November and keep the House in spite of the name-calling. If my opinion makes ME a rino, all I can say is good luck with that and the old "sticks and stones".....

OP most likely sat out the 2012 election too.. Thanks OP for another term of Obama.

When are these so-called purist "conservatives" going to learn that ANY Republican is better than ANY Democrat?? Of course we want to get rid of the establishment cronies and professional pols who are simply in it for themselves. But to vote for a socialist Demonrat who is 100% in it for the leftist agenda against the Constitution and the American people, is just plain suicide--not to mention stupid. Why would you vote against your own best interest? Because someone isn´t PURE enough for you? So, you want to bring down the entire country if you can´t get someone who is "conservative" enough? Some people have no common sense...

To those bashing the OP, I say this - how much worse can Michelle Nunn be than Saxby Chambliss has been? He has voted with Harry Reid all too often, and has been resistant to efforts of us, his more conservative constituents, to move to the right.

I´ll probably vote Libertarian again (Amanda Swafford). Y´all can blame me for losing the GOP seat if you wanna. I said after the 2012 Presidential election that I am DONE with voting for the lesser of two evils just because they have an R beside their name. Never. Again.

not sure that I see a whole lot of daylight between the "approved" Republicans, and the Democrat of your choice. I give as examples Lamar Alexander, Corker, Grahamnesty, Snowe, Ayotte, Porter, and too many others. If you doubt that, review at your leisure the Senate confirmation votes for some of Clinton´s and Obumbles most hideously awful appointments, including to judgeships and the Cabinet levels.
Principles? WHAT principles? Certainly no conservative principles, and I submit no patriotic principles either.
We have for YEARS been doing our very level best to tell the Rockefeller Republicans that we.have.had.it.
What we´ve gotten in return are demands for votes and money. Along with a ration of insults and demands that we tug our forelocks in the presence of Our Betters.
To quote a former poster (but continuing lurker, Engraved-on-His-Hands), "they want our votes, but not our values". And that is very much the case.
I refuse to cast my vote for Benedict Arnold-lite types. And the "approved" Establishment Republicans fit that label all too well. If you intend to destroy my country, you will do it without my help.

#17, re-read this article:

http://cnsnews.com/commentary/david-limbaugh/democrats-constitution-and-rule-law

The parties are NOT the same. Their basic ideologies are so different that even if you don´t like what the Republicans are doing, they still stand for our basic way of life, they still believe in the Constitution and the American Dream. The Democrats want to destroy all of it because they are controlling tyrants and powermongers who do not want others to flourish and succeed. As I said before...ANY Republican is better than ANY Democrat. No question about it. If you vote for a Democrat, you are voting for the demise of the greatest country in history.

Whether you agree with the OP or #12, there is no denying that this debate is occurring only because the GOP Establishment has a horrific track record, has been spineless in the face of Obama´s actions, and has spent so much time and money trying to defeat conservatives rather than Democrats.

Thus, the rebellion. They are reaping what they have sown.

One final comment... the way to get conservatives into office is to beat the establishment in the primaries--NOT to vote against them in the final elections against the Dems! Of course we don´t want RINOs, but a RINO is still better than a communist. Get rid of the RINOs in the primaries...work to get more true conservatives into the spotlight so we can win more primaries...but do NOT vote leftist/socialist/communist or "Present" just because you didn´t get your way in the primary this time. That doesn´t help the cause--it destroys it.

It should makes us all sick to our stomachs that some of our friends here will vote for Nunn.

But rather than shake their heads in wonder and "tsk-tsk" at those who won´t vote for someone who spits on them just because they drag an ( R) behind their name, the die-hard Establishment Elites ought to saying, "Good Lord, look what we´ve done. We really truly have alienated our base so badly that they will vote D, L, stay home, or wear an XXX clothespin on their noses to the poll. What can we do to bring them back?"

But they won´t.

They prefer power to the party over principal. I say Bravo and Brava to OP and #24.

#28: It´s late in the evening, and I don´t expect you will see my reply, so I will make it short, and wait for another opportunity to make my point to you.

But I will quickly issue the following thought:

You are dealing in clichés instead of realities, when you say, in essence, the republicans tenets are this and that´s (such as believing in the constitution, and etc., and etc.).

I could state the catholic church, or Baptist church el al are godly foundations (and that may be true), but when you consider the number of Priest´s whom have molested children, for example, over the years, and have their actions protected by the church, one loses confidence in the foundation of the church; therefore, the church MUST be purged.

And so it is with the republican party. The party has lost its way, and must not be supported until it is purged.

Nunn is daddy´s girl - but not the Nunn that served as a Dem Conservative.
Think of her as Meghan McCain of the Republican Party.
A vote for her is a vote for Harry Reid- who has blocked over 360 bills from the House and personifies gridlock and corruption.
This is no time for amateurs and poseurs - we have had enough of that in the WH.

I am stunned at the number of Georgia L-dotters voting for Reid et al. by voting for Nunn or the Liberterian. I don´t like Perdue, but I would vote for any Republican this side of the Grand Dragon or Bernie Sanders. Why bother to vote Libertarian? Might as well go ahead and vote Dem because that´s where your vote is going. Thank you!

I shouldn´t be stunned though - this happens during every election cycle. So depressing.

As to whether the polls are correct - of course they´re correct. Do people not realize what the Nunn name means in Georgia? All the same - I hope they´re wrong.

A fact that every politician and news talking-head in the world seems to be certain of is that you can’t win a war by air power alone. Even the media-hired retired generals throw it out as an absolute truth of warfare, as if it had fallen from the lips of Sun Tzu himself.

On Sunday night, Nigel Farage, the Chairman of the United Kingdom Independent Party (UKIP), said that the next time Republicans prop up a “continuity, establishment candidate” for President of the United Sates, they are not going to win. Appearing on Breitbart News Sunday, airing at 7-10 pm ET on Sirius XM Patriot Radio and speaking with Breitbart Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon, Farage said that unless you can “energize and engage, to use an old fashioned term, the blue collar voter, you are not going to beat the Democrats.”

Radio’s Laura Ingraham, a tireless champion of anti-amnesty efforts, blasted the Republican National Committee in a statement provided exclusively to Breitbart News, slamming the RNC’s apparent support of President Barack Obama’s plans to grant executive amnesty for millions of illegal aliens. "The RNC sure seems crestfallen that President Obama didn´t sign an executive amnesty for millions of illegal workers in the U.S.,” Ingraham said in an email. “I, for one, am glad that now we all know where the GOP Establishment´s allegiance really lies -- and it´s not with the American working class that is desperately looking for its champion.”

Despite admonitions from amnesty activists, more Senate Democrats are urging Obama against extending executive amnesty to millions of illegal aliens, especially before the November elections, according to a Politico report. “I have concerns about executive action,” Minnesota Democratic Sen. Al Franken, said in a statement Thursday, reported by Politico. “This is a job for Congress, and it’s time for the House to act.” In recent weeks Democrats in red states facing tough reelection races have pushed back against the president taking unilateral action on immigration reform.

President Obama insists that he still plans to make an executive decision on immigration reform, but his timeline for action grows increasingly convoluted. Obama and his team spent most of the summer previewing his executive action on immigration reform, vowing to fix what they describe as a “broken immigration system” without Congress as soon as possible. "I expect their recommendations before the end of summer, and I intend to adopt those recommendations without further delay," Obama explained in June, referring to a requested proposal from Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson.

Third Parties Won´t Save Our Country

Thirty-six seats are up for grabs in the Senate and all 435 seats in the House of Representatives will be contested. Of those 36 Senate seats, 15 are currently held by Republicans while 21 are held by Democrats. Clearly, the math is on the Republican side, as is the fact that the incumbent party typically loses seats in mid-term elections. This upcoming November 2014 election is crucial for America and voting for a third party candidate will not achieve the victory. To end the Obama “Rule by Decree” power grab, we have to wrest control of the Senate from the Democrats.

If our Congress wishes to fight its steady march into irrelevance it will have to actually go back to doing its job. Once upon a time, the first Article of the Constitution established all the powers that the Congress has and obligations that Congress must adhere to as they conduct their legislative business. Then, beginning in the 1930’s and 40’s, through the passage of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), and other actions, Congress abdicated part of its legislative authority to an ever increasing number of federal departments and agencies.

A substantial number of political prognosticators, including the likes of the highly respected Nate Silver´s 538.com blog, give the Republicans a substantial chance of not only picking up senate seats in November, but of getting at least 51 and thus a working majority (50 seats would see a tie with Vice-President Biden giving the Dem´s a majority). Where the seers differ is not only the percentage probability of the Republicans gaining control of the senate, just how many seats the GOP will end up with. This is where the tracking poll sites like Real Clear Politics and Electoral-Vote.com come to the

The only interesting things about Douglas Carswell’s switch from the Tory Party to Ukip are that it took him so long and that he has acted alone. Any thinking person has been able to see for years that the Tory Party hates conservatives. It is a roadblock, not a road, championing the elite against the people. It is kept in being only by the BBC and various dodgy billionaires, who provide it with airtime and money out of all proportion to its real support. It has no actual aims except office at all costs. It has no actual policies either, only negative

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) signaled on Sunday that Congress may hold hearings on the NFL’s handling of domestic abuse in light of the Ray Rice case, if the league does not “police” itself. “If the NFL doesn´t police themselves, then we will be looking more into it. We will -- I wouldn´t be surprised if we have hearings,” she said in an interview with CBS’s “Face the Nation.” Baltimore Ravens star Ray Rice was fired from the team and suspended indefinitely by the league after a video surfaced showing Rice punching his then-fiancee Janay Palmer in the face in an

Former President George W. Bush put together a 48 member coalition for the Iraq War in 2003. 40 of those members supported military operations and 37 provided some number troops. In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland). An additional 37 countries provided some number of troops to support military operations after the invasion was complete. Despite these numbers the liberal media continues to push the lie

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said comparing Republican treatment of President Obama to how Democrats handled President George W. Bush is a false equivalence and that Democrats don’t bear culpability for the comparatively fewer number of bills being passed by Congress and signed into law. “Let me just say that any of this equivalence, both sides, this or that, no — we never treated President Bush the way they treat President Obama,” she said Monday on MSNBC. “It’s no use whining about it; we just have to get people out to vote” and make people aware there’s an election this

The Department of Labor coordinated with the White House on whether or not to release hidden portions of former Labor Secretary Hilda Solis’ schedule as Solis battled an FBI investigation into her illegal fundraising for President Obama. New emails provided to The Daily Caller from the nonprofit legal research firm Cause of Action show the White House thanking the Department of Labor for “flagging” a public information request for “withheld” portions of Solis’ schedule. The White House then asked for the name of the conservative group making the request — information that Labor officials were eager to give up. As TheDC previously

Department of Justice is launching a new program today in partnership with the White House, the Department of Homeland Security, and the National Counterterrorism Center that will train "community leaders" like teachers and social workers to monitor their communities for signs of radicalization. (snip) In his announcement of the initiative, Attorney General Eric Holder described the program as a way to "be both innovative and aggressive in countering violent extremism and combating those who would sow intolerance, division, and hate" in the homeland. He labeled it an expansion of existent efforts to "to identify threats before they emerge, to disrupt

There’s a lot of competition for Barack Obama’s biggest lie. The man who could assure the American public with a straight face over thirty times that they could keep their doctor under his health plan, when he knew that to be completely false, is one hellluva fibber. But execrable as that serial prevarication may have been, it doesn’t hold a proverbial candle to his most recent whopper — that the Islamic State is not Islamic — not to mention its corollary, or perhaps subsidiary lie, that real religions do not indulge in murder. Islam has been doing that pretty much straight

Is a mutiny happening around President Obama? It appears possible that the president may not have made two of his most recent decisions with complete free will. The announcement that he would delay his immigration initiative until after the election and his formal announcement that the United States would take military action against the Islamic State could have been coerced. Maybe Democratic leaders in Congress and a few members of the Obama team have had it. Could it be that, after President Obama briefed Democrats in Congress on the immigration plan, they balked? Maybe the president was told that, if he

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) tsk-tsked conservative media for "coarsening our debate" and vowed to "do my small part" to keep things civil before spontaneously praising President Obama´s recent foreign policy decisions. In an interview for Meet the Press´s "Press Pass" segment, Ryan and new host Chuck Todd might have been mistaken for being on a "No Labels" panel discussion as they both lamented how politicians are rewarded in "advocacy media outlets" for bold rhetoric and standing firm in their positions. Todd lamented that "members of both parties" often "get standing ovations for the rhetoric," to which Ryan replied, "I don´t

The United States government is sending thousands of military troops to the west African nation of Liberia as part of the Obama administration´s Ebola virus-response strategy, the White House said late Monday night. [Snip] ´A general from U.S. Army Africa, the Army component of U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM), will lead this effort, which will involve an estimated 3,000 U.S. forces.´ Liberia is the hardest-hit of the four west African nations that have confirmed Ebola cases, accounting for more than one-half of the fatalities. The others are Sierra Leone, Guinea and, to a lesser extent, Nigeria.
