Will a Tea Party Challenger
Threaten McConnell?

Real Clear Politics, by Scott Conroy and Caitlin Huey Burns

Original Article

Posted By:tisHimself, 3/29/2013 11:51:18 AM

When Ashley Judd announced on Wednesday that she had decided not to run for Mitch McConnell’s Senate seat in Kentucky, national Democrats quickly made clear that they remain serious about taking on the five-term lawmaker. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee launched a small anti-McConnell radio ad buy the next morning. But before the Senate minority leader can devote all of his attention to fending off whoever emerges from the Democratic primary in 2014, he may first have to contend with a GOP challenge from the right.

We don´t see one here in the Bluegrass. Yesterday Sen. Rand Paul announced his support for McConnell.

Although it may be unlikely, suppose McConnell were to be knocked off by a primary challenger. Who would then become the GOP Senate leader? Anyone know?

Better be careful what you wish for...

The Liberal and RINO default position is to sabotage conservatives like Ted Cruz, Sarah Palin and Col. West just to name a few.

One of their tactics is to work in conjunction to muddy up the water for conservative candidates in the primaries.

In the general elections the Karl Rove RINO candidates get their clocks cleaned and who do they blame? You guessed it, Sarah Palin and the TEA Party.

One alternative to a third party might be a "TeaPAC" that would conduct a pre-primary convention to select a single conservative challenger for the GOP primaries.

#10, the Dems funded Akin in his Missouri primary run, did they not? It would be in their interest to prop up someone who might scratch out a plurality in a primary but not have a prayer in the general election.

I don´t know if there is anyone who fits that bill in KY politics, but if he exists the Dems would love to find him.

#10 that happened in MO. Unfortunately a lot of stupid conservatives could fall for that, and please no outrage they have before. This infighting has become very sick, everyone´s a RINO, including Rand Paul. I rarely see attacks on Obama and the democrats on the treads anymore. Obama is destroying the country and we have idiots who spend all their time tearing down our side at every opportunity. And what is a RINO? anyone they don´t agree with. I used to think conservatives went by facts I was wrong.

Yesterday I stripped and replaced a stick-on linoleum tile dining room floor with/for a friend. By evening I was having trouble cutting and trimming the little pieces - without consciously focusing.

Not that stripping and replacing flooring is anything like being a senator, but how can anyone be focused in the senate for thirty years?

Some say the minority leader shouldn´t be replaced right now but . . . Why not?

We replaced the last president with a street agitator with a revoked law license. (A former Unites States Senator)

Minnesota replaced one of their senators with a comedienne/joke.

California has two female senators with walnut-sized, petrified redwood, brains.

Delaware´s former senator was a plagiarist and unemployable in the real world.

New York´s senior senator is just a clothes horse, restrained by Spanx.

Nebraska´s senator accepted bribes for legislative votes.

North Dakota had a senator with so little sense, he panted like a dog with his tongue down to his knees, at the prospect of becoming part of a dope smoker´s (Choomer´s) cabinet.

The list is endless. So who is this Kentucky senator who is indispensable to the real world? Or was Kentucky told that after they used this senator up they would be held to a single thereafter?

If McConnell were knocked off Republican Senate leadership would go that infamous Texas ´rino´ John Cornyn.

Nevada Dems propped up a phony Tea Party candidate in 2010 to help Harry Reid. That was before Sharon Angle won the primary and they realized Reid didn´t need help. Angle could blow the election all by herself.

Mitch McConnell is not John McCain. He has not gone out of his way to stab conservatives in the back. He is very skilled, probably the best, at using Senate rules to bamboozle Hairy Reed. There are far worse RINO targets to go after in my opinion.

#10, you are the one who is in error. The Dems actively looking for a McConnell opponent inside the Republican party has been no secret. #5, you are aware, are you not, that different segments of any party might support different candidates?

he 2014 election season dawns, with 2016 closing close behind that. Make book that before both are over, the most quoted or cited person in Republican campaigns — and not infrequently in Democrat campaigns as well — will be Ronald Reagan. There is a reason for this, as Reagan biographer — and American Spectator contributor — Paul Kengor notes in his newest Reagan book 11 Principles of a Reagan Conservative. In addition to being a prolific Reagan scholar, Kengor is a professor of political science at Grove City College and the executive director of the college’s Center for Vision & Values.

Why a Sebelius Senate Run
Could Help Republicans
National Journal, by Sarah Mimms    Original Article
Posted By: tisHimself- 4/17/2014 6:53:38 AM     Post Reply
With jobs and the economy a given, Republicans are working to turn the 2014 elections into an argument over the Affordable Care Act. And that message could be helped by a high-profile Senate race in Kansas against the very woman who oversaw the law´s disastrous rollout. Some Democrats are asking outgoing Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to challenge her home state senator, Republican Pat Roberts, in the fall, the The New York Times reported Wednesday. Nominating Sebelius, a potentially serious contender in the state, would force national Republicans to spend money in Kansas, pulling away funds that could help them

Jeb Bush’s optimism school
Washingotn Post, by E.J. Dionne JR    Original Article
Posted By: tisHimself- 4/17/2014 12:09:38 AM     Post Reply
The Republican Party faces a long-term challenge in presidential elections because it is defining itself as a gloomy enclave, a collection of pessimists who fear what our country is becoming and where it is going. The party’s hope deficit helps explain why there’s a boomlet for Jeb Bush, a man who dares to use the word “love” in a paragraph about illegal immigrants. The flurry doesn’t mean that the former Florida governor is even running for president, let alone that he can win. But Bush is being taken seriously because his approach to politics is so different from what’s on offer

Hillary Clinton’s top 2016 worry

If Hillary Clinton runs for president, she’ll be getting a lot of help from Wall Street. But her friends and confidants there tell me she truly hasn’t decided yet. So why is she hesitating? The big reason, according to these sources, has to do with the dude who occupies the Oval Office now. Barack Obama’s rapidly disintegrating presidency — and the chance it will get even worse — is Clinton’s top worry these days as she weighs whether she’ll run, and can win, in 2016, these folks say.

Jeb Bush’s wife, family

If Jeb Bush decides to run for president, he’ll have to defend his family’s controversial political name. But more immediate family concerns might keep him from running at all.Republican donors and operatives are chattering about Bush’s publicity-shy wife, so worried she isn’t on board with a 2016 White House run that they’re urging people in the family’s orbit to make the case. Columba Bush has long been deeply averse to the spotlight, especially after an embarrassing encounter with U.S. Customs while her husband was still in office.

Romney Plugs Establishment
Candidate in Key GOP Primary

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which has launched an unprecedented effort to defend vulnerable pro-business incumbents in Republican primaries this year, is enlisting a big gun to boost its favored candidate in Idaho. In a new Chamber ad, former presidential nominee Mitt Romney touts his support of Idaho Rep. Mike Simpson, an establishment Republican facing a difficult May 20 primary. Romney endorsed Simpson last year, but this is his first foray into television ads in the 2014 cycle. “You can take it from me,” Romney says in the spot. “The conservative choice for Congress is Mike Simpson.”

Virginians: Before you go to the polls in November to elect a U.S. senator, there is a very real and terrifying fact you simply must know about Ed Gillespie. No, it’s not that he’s a former lobbyist (though he is). Or that he worked in George W. Bush’s White House (he did), ran the Republican National Committee (that too) and has said he was “torn” between rooting for the Redskins and the Eagles (shudder). It’s far more sinister than that. He’s from New Jersey. Sure, Gillespie has lived for more than two decades in Virginia’s Fairfax County, where he’s raised a family, gone

After a stretch of anemic fundraising, the Karl Rove-backed American Crossroads super PAC raised more cash in March than it did during the previous 14 months combined, according to summaries of campaign filings released Monday. The GOP establishment´s favorite super PAC raised almost $5.2 million last month and had more than $6.3 million in the bank as of March 31, according to the report summary. That cash will be used as the outside group tries to help Republicans pick up the six seats they need to win control of the Senate.

There are very few genuinely new moments in American politics. Ronald Reagan´s election in 1980 was one of them. President Obama´s triumph in 2008 another. Both were transformative elections, presidencies and men. And both led to parties that struggled for a voice after their defining leader left the scene. George H.W. Bush was a safe and reliable choice for the GOP in 1988: a longtime Washington hand with a golden resume and a seemingly endless and loyal list of supporters and donors. Lots of folks didn´t like him, of course, inside his own party, inside the Democrats, inside the media and outside

April 15 is a hard day for many, as their annual federal tax bill comes due. But it could have been worse. According to a new report, President Obama has sought 442 tax increases since taking office, though most have died because of congressional opposition. Having included 93 new taxes in his fiscal 2015 budget, the anti-tax Americans for Tax Reform reviewed his proposals since his 2009 Inauguration to determine just how tax-friendly the president has been. Their conclusion: He´s very friendly. "History tells us what Obama was able to do. This list reminds us of what Obama wanted to do," said Grover

Washington - As millions of Americans race to meet Tuesday´s tax deadline, their chances of getting audited are lower than they have been in years. Budget cuts and new responsibilities are straining the Internal Revenue Service´s ability to police tax returns. This year, the IRS will have fewer agents auditing returns than at any time since at least the 1980s. Taxpayer services are suffering, too, with millions of phone calls to the IRS going unanswered.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday.

Climate change’s latest casualty appears to be fish — or more specifically, fish brains — as researchers say the carbon dioxide that’s being absorbed into the ocean is causing the scaly creatures to lose their survival instincts. In other words, the fish are losing their minds, The Daily Mail reported. The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said. The acidic waters then hamper the fishes’ sensory systems, so they’re not able to distinguish between smells any longer, the scientists went on. When the acid levels get really high, the fish lose their
