Either we're going to have some amazing rationalization acrobatics, or we'll have some highly amusing electoral fallout come November.
Or, Freepers have no power at all and lose despite going hard against the GOP, which is also hilarious.
First, inevitably, DestroyLiberalism unskews the poll:
Public Policy Polling (PPP) is a left-wing Democrat outfit and skew all their polls favorably toward left-wing Democrats. Therefore, they have no credibility and I put no stock in their polling results.cotton1706 wants revenge for McConnell's treachery and vile oligarchosity:
McConnell is an insidious and vile oligarch who should be removed from office, no matter what his party.Yeah, cotton1706 is not a fan:
To reward him with reelection and with the Majority Leader position would be granting amnesty for all his treachery.
If I can make it any clearer, I will: I OPENLY ADVOCATE THE DEFEAT OF REPUBLICAN SENATOR MITCH MCCONNELL OF KENTUCKY.boycott is done with the GOP...e.
He is a very dangerous man. He has ceded enormous power to the position of Majority Leader in numerous “handshake agreements” with Harry Reid. He thought he would be Majority Leader by now but all the Establishment’s worthless nominees (including Mitt Romney) went down in flames in November, 2012. He lusts after power and such a man should never be granted it.
There are a number of seats that can be gained to make up for McConnell’s loss.
Good!ChildOfThe60s found the primary's bad blood has not yet faded. Also everyone in Jefferson County seems to be a LIBERAL CORRUPTSTER:
To Hell with the damn GOP.
I am there with you now. After what mitch and the GOPe did in Mississippi, they have lost me for good.
No, it won’t make me happy. It is what it is. McConnell is 100% responsible for his own fate.relictele hopes the GOP runs out of money:
I am still washing off the stink of the crap that bastard has dropped on us here during the primary campaign. The fact that we have no palatable alternative doesn’t mean I will voluntarily be his butt boy.
McConnell used to be a judge advocate in Jefferson County back when. Jefferson County is spelled LIBERAL CORRUPTION.
Wondering (hoping) if Cochran’s narrow escape might wake up any fence-sitters to the desperate skulduggery of the Haley Barbour GOP Establishment Propaganda Wing.rottndog wonders if McConnell might be a sociopath:
In other words, McConnell browbeat his RINO colleagues into spending money if not sweat on Cochran. Did they burn most/all of their powder up on that race to leave McConnell exposed?
If McConnell loses, he will have only himself to blame.INVAR also joins in:
You can’t continuously spit in the faces of your base, and then expect the base to turn around and vote for you. Unless you are a sociopath.
GOOD. Better Grimes than McConnell. At least we will know who the enemy really is.DesertRhino knows McConnell has done nothing but constantly work with Democrats:
What are you going to do about it?
Declare war on the TEA Party like your idol McConnell did?
The Agent of the MarxoFascist Democrats IS McCONNELL!!!!!
Go pound sand.
Tell us when Mitch has EVER stood up to the dems and it wasn’t a façade for a prearranged deal. For bonus points, tell us how to “put the heat” on an elected official besides unseating them. Make a phone call? Send a letter?JRandomFreeper is really taking the rhetoric of a mad bomber:
The ONLY heat they understand is money and votes. They get their money from the big guys and their lobbyists, not 20 dollar checks from ma and pa. That leaves us exactly one way to apply heat, election day.
By voting out Mitch, we apply heat to all the others. And even possibly teach an honest lesson to the dem we put there in his place. Mitch has lead one thing and one thing only,,, the war against TEA. Screw him.
Considering that McConnell provided the critical cloture votes to further Reid's agenda, you bet I'll be happy to see a liberal republican Senate leader politically destroyed.Mr. K IS ALL CAPS COMMITTED:
Every single liberal republican needs to be politically destroyed at either the primary or in the general election.
GOOD I HOPE HE DOES LOSEtennmountainman, too.
AND COCHRAN TOO
AND THAT GIRL LINDSAY GRAHAM TOO
Ditch Mitch in KY.ilgipper doesn't care who runs the Senate.
Ditch Cochran in MS.
That will send a strong message to the GOPe’s.
Don’t piss on us. Don’t $hit on us. Don’t call us racist against members
of your own party, or you will pay a heavy price.
It’s too late to save the DC insiders. Losing a few will reform the party. With Obama in the White House for two more years, what impact with a Republican Senate have? We’re going to end up with 48-50 seat this year at a minimum, so nothing will get through the Senate. If there are 51-52 Republicans, we still have 2-3 turncoats who vote for Obama nominees. Going in to 2016, I really don’t care who runs the Senate, frankly. Boehner/McConnell are such pathetic leaders, they’ll probably do more harm than good, like they did in 2011 and 2012.My favorite might be chris37 just sees enemies everywhere.
If I was in KY, I’d probably end up voting for McConnell, but I would cast my vote for the Dem in MS. The conduct of the party there is not forgivable. Calling your own voters racists is below the pale.
The friend of my enemy is also my enemy.dware has no time for political pragmatists:
I can’t support a democrat, which also means I cannot support a republican.
Nothing in life is perfect, LEAST of all politics.ifinnegan goes the other extreme - this thread is full of non-conservatives!
Perhaps I am suffering from blue state traumatic stress syndrome, but after putting up for more than twenty years of the likes of Boxer and Feinstein, McConnell and even Cochran look very good in comparison.
Enjoy getting stabbed in the back, huh? How'd 2000-2006 work out for ya? If memory serves, we had a R controlled House, Senate AND WH. We got the Patriot Act. No thanks. I'm done voting for the lesser of evil.
Yes. Those who want the Democrat to win are not conservative.COBOL2Java is all for purging anyone who will vote for McConnell:
They are nihilists to the point they are sincere, not believing in anything and being broken by fear and cynicism.
But they are also just liberals who favor the Democrats.
Lastly, it is almost sad logging in here now sometimes. Post after post, thread after thread of people rooting for Democrats to defeat Republicans.Political Junkie Too does not like analogies:
You've been here since 2002 and you haven't yet figured out that this is NOT a Republican forum? This is a CONSERVATIVE forum. Conservatives of all stripes are welcome here, whether they be Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, or other. If you are a Republican and a McConnell/Boehner-supporting Liberal, you really are in the wrong place, Kemosabe...
Where do you keep your hay after you burn your barn down?Cboldt is pretty confident his side (the Democrats) will win, and is flippant about it.
It's not a barn. I don't care about hay. Talk about the Senate, not useless analogies.
We can frustrate the Senate if we hold the House. The only issue is Supreme Court nominees.
Have you ever considered “...sending a strong message...” to the DEMOCRATS?
I’m sorry but I can’t see how electing, or “helping” to elect, DEMOCRATS will “save” America.
I don’t see how your “my way or the highway” ultimatums work in a real democracy or a real republic.
And I don’t see how the damage done to America by allowing Obama to replace one or more of our “Originalist” Supreme Court Justices with new “Evolving Constitution” Supreme Court Justices can be permitted.
So, I’m sorry if Mitch McConnell once upon a time did something that hurt your feelings...
...but I think that preserving America from a perverse application of Obama’s appointment power is a far, far more important issue than making YOU “feel good”....
Nice screed. And, you get one vote!
