Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? Really!.....

As an accused GOPe supporter, I'm going to turn the tables and say Cochran should gracefully bow out should he lose, and McDaniel gets nearly 50% of the vote.

Time is up, Thad.  Thanks for your service, but let's get a real fiscal conservative into office in Mississippi.  If your party supported you, you would have won this in a landslide.  This is the type of seat attainable for Tea Party/libertarians, and I'll do what I can to elect Cochran and pull the DC GOP a bit further toward fiscal responsibility.

I meant to say I would support McDaniel, and Cochran should step aside.  McDaniel will win against any Dem in MS.

So this whole contest decided nothing and we have to do this all over again in a couple of weeks. I would like to see Thomas Carey, the guy who siphoned off the <1% of the votes that deprived either one of the majority to reimburse everyone for all the trouble his vanity campaign caused. Yet that, of course, wouldn't happen.

Who besides a dim or a suicidal GOPer would want Cochran to be the one to withdraw?? We don't need any more futile Tea Party candidates. Particularly one with an unexplained scandal (the nursing home photos) waiting in the background.  :chairbang:

Not to worry! The TEA party is dead! Don't you read the papers?

If they keep doing this kind of thing, I'll know the cause of death was suicide.

We have another Christine O'Donnell in McDaniel.  Forget the nursing home scandal.  His radio shows (all recorded) are a treasure trove of racism and kookiness.

The ONLY Tea Party win is going to cost the GOP a seat they hadn't figured into the mix.

Last time I looked the polls had congress at about 11% approval. How is that going to get fixed if we keep sending all of the same players back?

Oh, goody.  There's no end of material for the dim campaign. /sarc

This is a dim Senate. I can pretty much guarantee that another dim controlled Congress won't score any better than the current one.  Let's just try with a GOP majority in both houses for once and see what happens.

We had just that for several years I recall! Was there even a pretense of a return to Constitutional government during that time?

I think not!

The last time we had that was in the first 2 years of Bush's second term. That was an entirely different situation.
And, no, we're never going to go back to a strictly Constitutional gov't. We got away from that for good in FDR's admin. But that doesn't have to mean we are just as well off with a socialist dictator.

Well at least I now know that YOU have given up on the idea of Constitutional government! I never will as long as I'm breathing!

You're chasing unicorns. Powerless people can only rant and rave. They can't do anything. You want all or nothing. I'm not happy with nothing. I want to give power to the people who will stop this march toward total socialism. After that, we can talk about how far back we can go - maybe only one step at a time, but it's better than giving all the power to the socialists and just whining on bb's about it.

Look in the mirror. That's where you start finding people who will stop the insanity.

The socialists have been working on this for a hundred years. One small step at a time, take the local, take the schools, take the universities, take the courts, take the statehouses. All things that impact people far more than posturing in Washington.

Yet every single member elected will receive far above 11% of the vote.

That's what I've been saying. The socialists got us here one step at a time. Some conservatives won't fight unless they can have everything all at once. Isn't gonna happen.

But taking control of Congress would be one very good step in the right direction.
