The GOP-e stole the election by actively campaigning with Democrats and hiring black activists to get their people to the polls to vote for Cochran.  This is a new low, even for the RINOs and Roveites.  The crossover Democrats helped send this old fossil back to the Senate so he can vote for amnesty, gun control, more pork, and who knows what else.

When the GOP calls me asking for money, I will tell them to call the Democrats since they already are using them to influence primaries.

I hate to win this way, but it sure beats losing.

When Limbo urged such pranks, conservatives thought it was really cool.

Now they paint themselves, as they frequently do, as victims.

Forget calling them RINOs.



We should call them cockroaches instead, because they seem to be impossible to exterminate anymore.

Message sent.  This seat will go to the demonrats.
It would have been a very smart move for Palin and others to go into the minority community and show them what the republicans have to offer.  Simply appealing to ultra conservatives is not going to work.  Either we expand our message or we lose.

This was a stolen election because the republicans wrote off the black voters.

The RNC/DNC are in an active partnership against the will of the American people. Not hyperbole or rhetoric, it is fact. Both will do anything, anything at all to maintain their desparate grasp on power, regardless of what the stupid, unwashed masses want.

They are a criminal enterprise in it together. Nothing could prove it more than this slimey cheat by the cockroach.

So all the Dems who got him the nomination are going to vote Pub in the election? What a stupid old fool!

He locked out the Tea Party by guranteeing
his own defeat!

If I ever meet this slimey bastard, I will punch him in his antebellum era nose.

Does the word retire exist anymore? Why do politician even have pensions, since they are all determined to die at their desk, at a hundred years old, and on a conference call?

What they did in Mississippi is a BLATANT violation of party rules and I will guarantee you that they will hear about it!

(It is against the rules for the party to take a position in a contested primary.)

No it won't.  Childers is an Obama Democrat and Cochran will crush him.  Mississippi conservatives are not going to throw a tantrum and sit out the election, like some of the dopes on this and other websites are advocating.

Uh, no it's not.  An open primary means anybody can vote who hasn't already voted in another party's primary.  If Mississippi Republicans don't like open primaries, they can urge the state party to close them.

I don't know Mississippi politics very well, but from what can gather - it is a majority Republican state and the Republican party will probably have an easy victory this fall - whether Cochran or McDaniel had been the winner of the (R) primary.

Sooooooo - if what I am reading is true, then these Democrat voters that voted for Cochran - and put him over the top BARELY - were wooed with promises that Cochran will pull through for them.  Amnesty, Obamacare, Foreign Policy, large government spending and lots and lots of social spending...................these Democrat voters and the status quo Republicans that gave Cochran his victory WANT THESE THINGS.

This is what I assume happened to a large extent here in my state of Kentucky with Mitch McConnell and Matt Bevin, and this is what we who identify as fiscal conservatives are up against.  It's hard to defeat Santa Claus with promises that we will make you work for what you have.  It's hard to beat free stuff and that is our challenge. 

Cochran and the GOPe that helped him win - are progressives, they're just too slimey to come out and say it.  I hate them worse than I hate Democrats.

Bloomberg's anti-gun group gave Cochran lots of money, so perhaps Dems also are expecting Thad to support gun-grabbing.

Absolutely right!  These people don't give their votes and money away for FREE - they WILL get something in return.  My Dad told me when he was a boy in Pike County, Kentucky - the price of a vote was a bottle of whiskey.  The price has gone way up now.

I'm not talking about how the primary is conducted but rather about the Republican party favoring one candidate over another in it you twit!

The "will of the American people" is expressed by their votes.

That seems to be an ingredient "true conservatives" have the most difficulty with; e.g. getting the MOST votes. Hence they sometimes don't even get beyond their own party's primary.

You get MORE votes by being the choice of MORE voters. Many would say that is achieved by broadening their appeal.

A new approach for true conservatives would be following in Reagan's path; common sense appeal, including independents and democrats, and being gracious to all.

Remember Reagan democrats? I do. I guess Cochran has in mind being Senator for all the citizens of his state, not just a narrow minority.
