Tag: Dick Lugar
Michigander Jen Kuznicki makes some great points during a critique of Dick Lugar's 'concession speech' last night.
The not so gracious Lugar had a few things to say after getting the kick in the jewels reminder that nothing is permanent last night to a Roll Call reporter. In the short blog piece answering his statement, "Well there's your problem, Dick", her analysis nails down the essence of the RINO mentality:
"Rejectionist orthodoxyThis particular blog post drew the attention of none other than conservative radio host Mark Levin this morning, where he posted it on his fan page.
H/T to Levin. Indeed.

Bottom line is we need to understand when we've taken the wheel, and are actually driving this thing.
I don't doubt the ability of the tea movement to shoulder once again, a myriad collection of RINOs, power hungry moderates, and mislabeled Republicans this election. I expect them to once again carry across the finish line, the standard bearers of establishment elitism and compromise. But there is something else that we will see.
They will have replaced a few of those along the way.
And it starts with the victory of Richard Mourdock over Richard Lugar in the Indiana Republican US Senate primary. Tea party grass roots ultimately helped by favorites such as Palin, and Club for growth, to overcome the entrenched RNC financed defense of "Obama's favorite Republican" made the Bob Bennett loss of a couple years ago more real. It took it from fluke status to a legitimate answer for politicians who pander too far over to the left for their own good.
Fair play,and a good game. Play to win, and when we don't, we plod forward to the next election.
But what really makes this especially interesting, is that the same folks who shepherded in Mourdock, are now backing Gary Glenn. The search to replace Stabenow has brought out a number of candidates, all of whom would be satisfactory when making the stark comparison to the puppet of the leftists, but not all will make it into the final cut.
