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.

Many Republicans are excited about the midterm elections. They see a good chance of taking over the Senate, which means they can neutralize Obama’s last few years in office. Many also are hopeful about the presidential election in 2016, though Hillary Clinton will enter that race with decided advantages. Regaining the presidency, some believe, will lead to a reprise of Ronald Reagan’s presidency, in which the country was turned from its leftward drift under Jimmy Carter. Yet even if this scenario unfolds as the Republicans hope, it is doubtful the deeper structural problems of the country will be solved. The entitlement

It doesn’t take a genius to know there’s a huge philosophical divergence between the socialist democratic party and the constitutionalist GOP (note the word ‘constitutionalist’). The tightly unified party of progressive socialists believe that massive, oppressive government is authorized to have a boot at every citizen’s throat, while Republicans are supposed to believe in the constitution and a limited government that adheres to the rule of law. But the GOP is no longer unified nor does it stand for adhering to the U.S. Constitution. Swept up by a ‘kinder, gentler’ political correctness, the GOP’s ideology has waffled on the role of

HOUSTON, Texas -- Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay was found not guilty today by the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals. This is the highest appellate court in Texas for criminal cases and thus brings DeLay’s political persecution to an end. The court upheld the ruling last year from the Texas 3rd Court of Appeals. That decision tossed out the convictions on money laundering and conspiracy charges. At that time Justice Melissa Goodwin wrote “The fundamental problem with the state´s case was its failure to prove proceeds of criminal activity,” according to a September 19th report on Breitbart News.

AUSTIN, Texas -- Last weekend, Texas Governor Rick Perry defended his support for a 2001 bill that granted in-state tuition to illegal immigrants for Texas colleges and universities. As reported by Breitbart Texas, in a keynote conversation at The Texas Tribune Festival, Perry was asked directly by Texas Tribune CEO and Editor-in-Chief Evan Smith if he now believed the bill should be overturned, and Perry answered "No," also commenting, "I still think in 2001 it was the right thing to do in the state of Texas." After Perry´s remarks hit the news, public reaction was swift. Breitbart Texas´ article on

Even though Republicans may take back the Senate by running against amnesty, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush pushed amnesty legislation while stumping for North Carolina Republican Senate candidate Thom Tillis on Wednesday. Bush, according to the New York Times, reportedly said that comprehensive immigration reform "will restore and sustain economic growth for this country." And even though a recent Gallup poll found that illegal immigration is now the top concern among Republicans, Bush said that if immigration reform is "framed in that way, I don’t think there’s a big debate in the Republican Party about the need to do this."

AUSTIN, Texas -- Over the weekend, Texas´ two senators traded barbs over the last year´s government shutdown in a pair of speeches delivered at The Texas Tribune Festival, a conference at the University of Texas at Austin organized by the online media outlet. Senator John Cornyn delivered a keynote address on Saturday morning and Senator Ted Cruz followed later that afternoon. Both made remarks placing blame for partisan gridlock on Democratic leadership of the Senate, but it is their comments on the shutdown that are generating the buzz.

John Koskinen has failed the IRS and the American people. IRS Commissioner John Koskinen testified last week about the missing emails lost forever due to computer failures. When questioned about any more crashes or computer issues recently, Koskinen told the House Oversight and Government Reform subcommittee that “Hard drive crashes continue as we speak.” Can someone please buy the IRS reliable computers and a backup system? Don’t forget, the IRS canceled the back-up contract service that they had for six years, shortly after Lois Lerner’s original hard drive went missing.

My last article for American Thinker was too long. And too short. Too long because the gurus tell us articles should be about 600 words. My story about the president talking to the black caucus about white people inflicting constant racial injustice on black people came in at 1500 words. I was just getting warmed up. I thought it strange that at the same time the president was trying to persuade us that black people are relentless victims, black people were committing acts of racial violence in places like Seattle, Miami, Indianapolis, Bronx, Ferguson, Kansas City, Providence, Minneapolis and 18 miles from where

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false. We discover that lapses in

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner. Goldberg told O´Donnell, ´F*** it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don´t want to listen. If you want to go there Rosie,

Mitt Romney and 2016:

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey.

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

On Wednesday, the ex-CNN talk show host wrote his first story as editor-at-large for the Daily Mail. While the content is vicious, angry and sure to tickle conservative journalists and pols, the writing is colorful, even entertaining.“A slapdash Secret Service detail isn’t what’s wrong with the White House — the real scandal is a President who is so complacent about protecting Americans,” the headline blares. Piers predicts that now that President Obama went on “60 Minutes” and distanced himself from U.S. national intelligence agencies on the rapid spread of ISIS, he’s guaranteed himself leaks to the media for the remainder of his

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It
