Reince Priebus Thad Cochran
I woke up this morning in Mississippi with questions – lots of them.  After last night’s defeat of Chris McDaniel, I realized that there is no limit to what politicians might do to get elected or stay in office.  Maybe it’s quaint, maybe it’s naïve, but there’s been a line that even the most ambitious of politicians never crossed, at least among Republicans.

Chicago-style politics and voter intimidation at voting precincts, like what we saw by members of the Black Panthers at polling sites in 2008, were only tactics used by those on the left.  Until yesterday.

Letters and robocalls targeted Urban Democrat voters telling them it was ok for them to vote in the runoff election even if they voted Democrat in the past was ok. They were also told they could go back to voting Democrat in the November General Election. These have no been made public.  Rumors of Black Pastors encouraging voters in Democrat strong counties to vote for Thad Cochran are growing stronger.  Fliers passed around social media spread fear that the Tea Party is going to be intimidating folks not to vote at the polls were not only widely spread, but completely false.

There are hundreds of GOP campaign consultants and lobbyists who are today patting each other on the back or toasting each other with champagne at their victory.  But at the risk of spoiling their merriment, I have one question to ask them: Do you understand the Pandora’s box you might have just opened? 

The tactics deployed by liberals are now apparently used by Republicans like Thad Cochran.   Whenever conservatives and Republicans call out voter intimidation and corrupt politics in the future, we’ll be rightfully called out for throwing stones at our opponents from a glass house. We know Democrats use machine politics and corruption to manipulate results, but just like they have done with the issue of infidelity and are quick to throw the name of Mark Sanford into any article on family values, we can expect the same to occur in regards to the issue of integrity at the voter box.

There is very little doubt that Thad Cochran and the Beltway Bandits won this round, but only because they turned out Democrats in an open primary. Instead of Republicans deciding the Republican nominee, we had pandering to big government spending and earmarks to attract Democrats.

After Tuesday night’s runoff election and the way in which the Cochran campaign resorted to votes, party unity is as far away as it has ever been. 

What type of Republican Party has been spawned when we now know that those in leadership would rather recruit Democrats than those within their own Party?  It will take a superhero, someone even more compelling than a Ronald Reagan, to heal these divisions, and to put the Republican Party back together, to pull it out of the Mississippi mud in which it will remain bogged.

In the meantime, while we wait for our modern day Reagan to emerge, it should be the job of the RNC, led by Chairman Reince Priebus and the committeemen and women, to quickly bring order back to the chaos which has now been allowed to emerge within our Party. They need to publicly express their official disproval of recruiting Democrat voters to manipulate a Republican primary. While it might be too late for the McDaniel campaign to receive justice, their loss Tuesday night would not be in vain, as it might be the perfect lightning bolt to jolt our Party back so that we may remain the Grand Ole Party of honesty and true representation.

    McDaniel should run as a write in candidate, and beat Cochran at his own game.

    • Stuck_in_Ca says:

      The democrat will win with a divided conservative/republican base. The dems are counting in this.

      • builder21 says:

        At this point, the Dems have already won.
        Come Nov. the choices will be Dem, or Dem in drag…………

      • A vote for Chochran is a vote for the Democrats – That is why so many Democrats supported him. If Republicans vote for the “Republican party,” by voting for Cochran, they are not voting for Republican principals or goals. I’d rather stand on my integrity, than to vote for someone who counts me a political enemy.

        Voting for Cochran is voting for the Democrat – What difference does it make that there is an artificial “R” behind it?

        • Stuck_in_Ca says:

          Then don’t vote at all. Seriously, if my only choice is a 196 year old f2rt or a communist, I’ll stay home.

    • chewinmule says:

      Not in Mississippi. Write ins for Chris will not be counted. He lost the primary and unless Cochran dies before November, no write in.

    • It is time to teach the dogs a lesson. Don’t split the vote. Just vote for McDaniel. Period. If you vote for Cochran(D) you are already splitting the vote. Enough of this. Send the message.

    • ZeroSum1 says:

      if Chris McDaniel ran as a Write in he could most definitely win with the democrat split, Problem is about 90% of the voters are either completely oblivious to any politics and only vote for names they recognize or to lazy to do a Write-in.

    • IllinoisPatriot says:

      Can’t several posters on other sites (Breitbart is one ) have researched this option and state that write-in is not legal in Mississippi unless the election is to fill an empty seat mid-term or unless a candidate on the ballot drops out of the race – neither of which happened.

      • Call it a conscience vote then. Either that or, just stay home. Chochran is a liberal and votes with Democrats – can’t be worse to let a lib beat him come election day.

    • Eddie frOly says:

      Unfortunately he’d just split the vote and the Democrap would win. I guess it’d show the so called leadership what for anyhow.

  2. Truth, Justice & AMERICAN Way says:

    FLUSH the TURDS in DC

  3. Dave Haslitt says:

    “After last night’s defeat of Chris McDaniel, I realized that there is no
    limit to what politicians might do to get elected or stay in office.”

    Is challenging the vote count and complaining about who was allowed to vote included in your realization?

    • Randall Dornier says:

      I see what you did there. The only thing is: If election laws were broken, it is the candidates DUTY to ask that those irregularities be investigated. Nobody is allowed to vote in both the democrat AND republican primaries in Mississippi.

      • leewacker says:

        Nor anyplace else in the nation, to my knowledge!
        Ever since I was big enough to understand the voting privilege, it was drummed into me that each party had its OWN Primary, and that the OTHER party, whichever it may be, did NOT have the right to vote in that primary! What went on in Mississippi should and must be challenged–just as all the excess votes that went for Obama should have been investigated!
        Our system is broken, and must be repaired—ALL questionable election results MUST be investigated!

        • Randall Dornier says:

          Most states have “closed” primaries, where you must be registered as a member of that party to vote in that party’s primary, but some states have “open” primaries. However, even with “open” primaries, you are only allowed to vote once.

  4. Randall Dornier says:

    The RNC will not condemn it, the RNC was behind it.

    • Toodumtu says:

      Yup along with the little fat man with the white board(Karl Rove) and Haley Barbour. I would have never imagined this could happen in the Republican party, but they just proved they are capable living in the sewer along with their pals the Democrats.

    • Stuck_in_Ca says:

      Yep

  5. Joe Tokoph says:

    Its all of Washington, 99% of them are corrupt, and to make it worse you cant vote em out, its all rigged.

    • deptydawg says:

      No, you can vote them out (unless the machines are rigged (which I sometimes wonder)). The problem is we are ignorant of what these corrupt people do while representing us. It is the news media that is slanting the news in favor of their party.

  6. Left the Republican party years back because they don’t stand for anything after getting elected (there are a few exceptions – Tea Party members) which the RINO’s are out to destroy – doesn’t seem to bother the Rino’s that Obama is destroying our nation – the enemy is people who believe in the Constitution and limited government. Don’t expect the RNC to stand up for anything

    • What? What are you trying to say? You make no sense. You “left the republican party bla bla blah” and now “Obama is destroying our nation.” It seems to me you allowed Obama to destroy this nation and you need to get behind something that improves your position on things.

      • Tabitha Bliss says:

        Defining yourself as an independant in no way helps Obama. I’m an independant & always vote the most conservative choice available… I live in Az & between McCain & Flake have seen my share of turncoat RINOs. That was my inspiration to leave the Republican party. Doesn’t mean I’m not an activist promoting conservatism every day.

        • Good. Thank you. Keep it up. But I have to say. If you opposed McCain then you may have promoted Obama in 08. That turns out to be a mistake now looking in the rear view mirror. We don’t have any more chances at doing that. Please focus on the next elections carefully and vote for limited government, job creation, liberty, and conservative values. Do not be fooled again but some promises promises big government candidate. Thanks. You are awesome.

          • leewacker says:

            No, look at McCain’s loss in 2008 this way: I backed McCain in ’08, but knew from the first he had NO chance! At the time, I was blaming Hillary until I saw some of the tactics the Obama Camp was using–including his disgusting “hand signals,” his body language, and overall thuggery—then, I knew neither Clinton nor McCain had a chance! That election, just like the one in 2012, was ORCHESTRATED from the beginning by whatever group you care to name! The Democrats just happened to be the patsies as the accepted group in the public eye!
            The Democrats, I think, however, are promoting the friction between the RNC and the Tea Party, thinking it will help them win back the House and keep the Senate in November! If they can keep Harry Reid in the Senate, and get Nancy Pelosi back as Speaker, then they can do whatever they wish, whenever they wish to the country, and will not allow ANYONE, not even sitting Republicans, to challenge them!

          • I say millions of armed Americans would challenge them, along with most police officers, National guard, and Military personal.

          • God help us. that is what we do not want. That is why I am on here fighting for the republican cause. We need to unify the party. I am tired of all this RINO talk. People are pissed off at principals being compromised. I get that. But bottom line is to stay focused and beat the current field of democrats out of power. Stop Obama. and prevent Hillary!

          • Cure Lefty says:

            Once you understand that the RINOs are a major tactical part of the current field of democrats, you will have achieved enlightenment. Get off the fence and join us.

          • I am not on the fence. I already hopped the fence and am working on getting the right flag to the top of the hill. I am in the battle. Waving you all to get going. All the while you are toiling around debating small issues. Maybe even letting the enemy run by. Now stay in the fight. Stay focused. The difference is, that I am a leader and you are a follower. Perhaps you need me to show up here and tell you what to do. Because if I do not, you just sit around complaining with little or no progress.

          • Shrillary's All Washed Up says:

            There’s a very simple way for you to find out for sure if you are a leader or not, and that is to see if anyone is following. Since a growing number of conservatives are blowing off RINOs / democrat lite / progressive GOP elitists, you would do well to notice the trend, evaluate the pathology of the big government progressive elite GOP establishment, and wake up to the importance of following the only intelligent path to restore our country, which is to get back to conservation of our Constitution.

            To sum it up, yeah, you look real funny standing way over there on that hill with a small group of wishy-washy anything-goes-so-long-as-we-win low inormation pseudo-republicans.

          • I’m not wishy washy. i am decided. Maybe it is you, making the water muddy. Clouding things. Confusing people. The republican party is the proper path to achieve the desired goal. I want the same conservation you speak of. However neither of us will get that if we sit around looking at the WRONG person and party at the top of that hill. Why point fingers? GOP, Tea Party, RINO, democrat lite. You go on with these profiles and names. Its childish. Lets hold hands and win. Or are you just a spoiler? Look at what you accomplished in the 2012 election. Thanks a lot. With friends like you who needs enemies.

          • Shrillary's All Washed Up says:

            3rdgen, you are not the one pointing out to people that left leaning progressive republican elitists are no different than democrats, so you leave people confused. There is a massive battle of ideas within the spectrum of all that is not the DNC and that battle shall continue until issues are settled. To play the cards your way, we win win win by compromise compromise compromise. What does that entail 3rdgen? Massively wide open southern border in order to suck up to the elusive hispanic vote that you won’t get anyway? Modifying the unaffordable healthcare act to suit elitist progressive republicans so that we end up with national socialized medicine with progressive GOP approval rather than doing away with it completely? Yeah, your dear folks on the hill have been plotting for some time to just live with it because repealing it is too much work. You are the one who is childish because you give lip service to conservatism but can’t make the distinction that principles count all the way down to the details.

            I’ll tell you something about friends and enemies. When you are fighting in the trenches, the common understanding is that the enemy is the group across the field shooting at you. The more insidious enemy is the manchurian candidate in your own trench pretending to be against the opposing forces across the field when he’s secretly plotting against you from the inside. If you don’t understand that the TEA party started with Taxed Enough Already, then you don’t understand the imperative of smaller, less costly, less intrusive government. If you don’t comprehend the imperative, then anybody is ok with you….just like Thad Cochran is ok with thousands of democrats who decided the Mississippi primary for us.

            And I’ll tell you something about the 2012 election. Millions of people that voted for McCain didn’t show up for Romney. You want to blame those millions and ignore the mistake of the selection of a candidate who is a good man, but not the one that those millions wanted to represent them. I ‘ll raise you those millions against your one and call: you’re the childish one. Big mistake assuming that millions upon millions of folks who question whether Mormonism is a cult due to their own beliefs (irregardless of whether it is or not) would still show up for the man who pulled off mini-obamacare in his own state. Oh, I still voted for him in your “lets hold hands and win” strategy, but there is a better result coming out of this second term of this massive socialist obamanation, and that is the fact that many folks are waking up from their wishy washy no political stance low information laziness. I know of several personally who are finally being motivated to look at what’s what and they are waking up as conservatives. They see that your coddled progressive RINO elites are a big part of the problem. Wake up. Your bluff has been called.

            Healing can only begin when the strife between the GOP/TEA Party ends. This CANNOT happen until the GOP incumbents STOP attempting to COMPLETELY eliminate the TEA Party, as some GOP have STATED! Ant this before ANY attempt to curtail the Democrat domination of the Senate! The TEA Party also must STOP their attacks on RINO GOP, at least AFTER all runoff races are over! At that point, such action will only serve to FURTHER split the GOP voting base, a situation the Dems will be quick to exploit! When a drowning idiot tries to climb atop his would-be rescuer, this can lead to the death of BOTH! The TEA Party actions in the past have lead to the GOP regaining the House, and CAN lead to regaining the Senate! Unfortunately, some incumbent GOP are ONLY looking to save their OWN seats, at cost to the VOTERS! This CANNOT bode well for the U.S.!

          • If the Republican party will not require it’s political representatives to abide by the party platform, which it seems to have left off doing some years ago, we don’t have a political party that shares our Conservative values. What is there in the “R” party to hold onto? They let us go from their concern years ago, (‘cept when they want money… they they tell us how they just love their conservative base.)

          • If you check the box by the person with the R next to their name. You are doing your part to get closer to a limited government with conservative values. That is the idea anyway. Yeah there are problems with certain candidates I suppose. But the consensus is that the republican party conducts itself to encourage liberty and a limited government. Doing anything otherwise is basically pissing into the wind.

          • I’ll go back to the Republican party when they start acting like one; and refuse to support candidates that attack conservatives and conservative values, who who will also go to democrats, (the “by any means” method for keeping power), to win an election.

          • Wow. That was deep.. How about you stop your selfish analogy and “return” to voting for the people who will save this country. Sound like a plan? Thanks.

          • The RINO establishment is not “saving” our country! A party of slower death is still a party of death. (The death of America and freedom.) They have also labeled me their “enemy.” What is there to vote for? I’ve been holding my nose at the ballot box for WAY too long.

          • The republican party is the one that can do better for this country. What is it that you are accomplishing by an absent or protestant vote? You are the helping the enemy when you do this.

          • Shrillary's All Washed Up says:

            That idea has not been working out so well, and that is because we need to do a much better job of picking candidates who are motivated by what the country needs rather than by what their careers need.

          • Shrillary's All Washed Up says:

            No, the bottom line is to return to conservatism, limited government and the Constitution. The bottom line is not to put in a bunch of *progressive* GOP elite who actually love big government and are just itching to show everyone how they can handle it sooooo much better than the democrats can.

Vote for the person who is most likely to roll back the bloated government and crony capitalism, even if that person is a libertarian or independent. A vote for establishment Republicans is a vote for statism and cronyism, as has been proved time and time again.

      • builder21 says:

        It’s a “principle” thing. Some people may not understand.

        The Democrat Party isn’t even an option, so that leaves the GOP.
        When the GOP becomes indistinguishable from the Dems, what are you going to do?
        A.) Blow smoke up your own azz and continue your love affair with a symbolic “Big Red R”.
        B.) Distance yourself from the corruption, because you stand for more than just party rhetoric.

        • B!!!!!!! Enough of these idiots. Send the message. Win dirty = Lose big.

        • Sure distance yourself from the corruption, be bigger than party rhetoric. But also Vote against the current leadership and the future democratic push.

          • builder21 says:

            Agreed.
            I just encourage people to stop blindly voting for the “Big Red R” just because they’re too lazy to do their homework.
            Believe it or not, there are just as many Republicans that don’t see their party being infiltrated, as there were Democrats who missed it when it happened in their party.

            I wouldn’t mind a majority of TP Republicans, Constitutionalists, and Libertarians. As long as the core beliefs are in alignment and their voting record supports Freedom and Liberty, who really cares what team jersey they have on?
            All that matters at this point is, they need to out number the Socialist Progressives…..

            Personally, I think we’re leaving a lot on the table when we dismiss a chance to elect a candidate from the Libertarian party.
            That would be in an instance where we KNOW there is no good TP candidate running.
            When it all boils down to Dem -vs- RINO, piss with the Progressives and vote Libertarian….LOL!

          • “All that matters at this point is, they need to out number the Socialist Progressives”

            Point made. This is all I am on here trying to say. It will take a united group to do that. My opinion is that it should be a united republican party without these distractions and a bolstered confidence. That’s all.

          • Shrillary's All Washed Up says:

            That’s your opinion, which is fine on the surface, but it fails to entail the needful detail that we are not doing a whole lot of favors for ourselves by outnumbering the Socialist Progressives with Socialist-lite GOP progressives. You want a united republican party? Get back to values, principles and the Constitution. As Democrat Lite, you always fail because who needs the Lite version when you can have the real thing? All the takers want the real thing, so they keep voting for free Obamaphones and free Obamamadeconservativespayforit. Why as a matter of fact, this weeks version of Obamamadeconservativespayforit is being argued under the category of our supposed war on women for refusing to pay for their contraceptives, so you know I’m not making this stuff up. Wake up.

          • You have used up a lot of time and energy in your posts. Please focus that time and energy on a push to make things right in the country. I am pro tea party. Pro conservative. I think you can still be that and promote the GOP. I still consider the Tea Party, GOP and republican party the same thing and going for the same goals. Weird? I am pretty sure you and i will be voting in a similar fashion for the same people. I am not your enemy. Now if you would please stop labeling people and categorizing them. By doing that, you are dividing the effort to make progress. I am sure that you think McCain was too establishment republican. I think he would have been better than O. Romney? to you he was too moderate. I think he would have been better than O. Next? What if Jeb Bush is in there. You will say. Not another Bush! Ted Cruz? Rick Perry? Too Texas. Ran Paul? Too libertarian for you I presume. Marco Rubio? Paul Ryan? Too young, you will probably say. Meanwhile Hillary is sharpening her knives. I would support any of those guys. How about you “wake up” and get behind the people in place to make a run and make a difference. The country can’t take another four years of a bad result from you encouraging protest or absent votes. Please focus on a republican sweep of senate, house, and WH. Then you can complain all you want. Which I am sure you probably will.

          • Shrillary's All Washed Up says:

            So now you are exercising your progressive / liberal itch to censor how someone spends time and energy on posts? I’ll give you short, concise posts to demonstrate how naive, to put it overly politely, you really are; Here is your precious GOP holding hands and singing Kumbaya with the Tea Party:

            http://www.cnn.com/interactive/2014/politics/hamby-midterms/

            http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/mar/10/mitch-mcconnell-beating-tea-party-we-are-going-cru/

            “The country can’t take another four years of a bad result from you encouraging protest or absent votes.” Presumptive, erroneous and ridiculous. I already told you that I voted for Romney even though they had much better people in the primaries. Now you are going around in circles, and if you can’t tell the difference between Jeb vs Ted vs Rick vs Rand vs Marco vs Paul, then you are probably a lost cause.

          • And i already told you that division within the republican party is bad. What is it that you are trying to accomplish anyway? Another bad democratic president? Stop wasting your time. Your research projects are in vain and so is the good cause for the country with people like you pointing fingers and labeling people. Do you have any more names in your library of accusations? I am the furthest thing from a progressive liberal and YOU are the one playing right into their (progressive and liberal) objectives to divide the republican party. Dummy! Its really not Jeb vs Ted vs so and so. It should be get the guy who has the most conservative values WHO CAN WIN!!! Get it?!!

          • Shrillary's All Washed Up says:

            I’m sure that you don’t. In two consecutive sentences you say: “Its really not Jeb vs Ted vs so and so. It should be get the guy who has the most conservative values.”

            If you can’t distinguish that Jeb and Ted are practically polar opposites within the spectrum we are discussing; Jeb as a RINO and Ted as the best example of Constitutional Conservatism that we currently have, then you definitely don’t get it…and consequently you would be the waste of time that you are complaining about.

            We are going to have this argument. It’s called the primaries. And if GOP RINO elite put up a linguini spined middle of the road liberal, they will once again earn the votes and the lack thereof that they are so desperate for.

            At this point after I have explained so much to you, and you still ask: “What is it that you are trying to accomplish anyway?” Really? Yeah, you don’t get it, 3rdWOT.

          • I do get it. I like Ted Cruz. He is my fav. Ok? I get there are differences of opinion within the republican party. It should be healthy. It needs to be healthy for the party. We need a group effort. We need to all vote for the most conservative candidate in the republican party who can win. Jeb Bush would also be a good president, and he is conservative as well from what I currently know. I am sure there are differences. You magnify all those differences into some epic failing. But look at what we have now! What I don’t get is your pessimistic attitude. You are a spoiler. Saying “linguine spines” and non stop mud slinging and name calling in every post. Stop being a ridiculous little name calling brat. You attract bad opinion and disgrace by doing that. You divide the party and the democrats win presidential elections the last two times. i am starting to think you want the indecision, the strife, the upset and the confusion. That way you can have all this drama and you can come up with more disgraceful names to label people with. You are like a little child. Stop damaging the country just because you are pissed off about everything and seeking attention. Me? I want what is best for the country and that is a conservative republican president and cabinet who can lead. Hopefully you can law down your nasty attitude and your witch broom and get on board with that soon. Later!

Stop projecting what you see in the mirror, wake up, smell the coffee, start thinking with intelligence and drag yourself out of low-information-voterhood into the 21st century, where getting actual conservatives into office is a thousandfold more important than putting republican branded liberals into office who will give us more of the same stupidity that got us into the mess that we are in, child.

        It’s a “principle” thing. Some people may not understand.

        The Democrat Party isn’t even an option, so that leaves the GOP.
        When the GOP becomes indistinguishable from the Dems, what are you going to do?
        A.) Blow smoke up your own azz and continue your love affair with a symbolic “Big Red R”.
        B.) Distance yourself from the corruption, because you stand for more than just party rhetoric.

  7. The RNC’s silence on this and not jumping out in the first 12 hours with condemnation is their signed and sealed approval of what this low life, despicable man Thad Cockran did in this election and places the RNC and Chairman Reince Priebus right at the bottom of the same barrel Thad Cockran resides in. All fighting for elbow room with Barack Obama and his C(ommunist)DNC political party.

    • Your post sounds like a holly wood drama. This is bogus. The RNC is opposed to Obama and is trying to get him out. Lets be clear on things. Do not group them together please.

      • Tabitha Bliss says:

        You obviously didn’t hear the Cochran adds to the democrats who pushed him over the line to win.

        • ok. There is a page full of people here who care about that. And they are going to run the “RINO” thing and say how they suck. split the party. I am here saying who cares. This Mississippi is a small matter and the republicans won either way. The political campaigning process can be ugly I guess. Duh. McDaniel sounded and looked inexperienced and i think that he would have been challenged and potentially lose a Mississippi seat to a democrat. Cochran is more experienced and a more solid seat win in the senate. The TP is good. Keep fighting. Keep getting the word out. This message will make the republican party better.
          Concentrate on the bad guys please. Win seats of power. Abolish the current leadership of H.Reid, E Holder, B Obama, N Pelosie, and all the other cabinet members and corrupt people that O has appointed. Republican sweep the senate, house, and WH. Then we can all say YES!! and start fixing the mess, or are all of you going to keep on bitching? Let H. Clinton in now? No! Cmon people! Shake it off.

          • builder21 says:

            3rdgen, I don’t think you understand.
            If it were just as easy as getting more “Red R’s” than “Blue D’s”, our job would be easy.
            You do know that some R’s are purple, right?

          • I don’t see how you can possibly fix the mess by putting the same people who created the mess back in. Like doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Cochran has been in washington for over 40 years. How can you say he is not part of the problem? What bills has Cochran introduced to help the people of this country? He is designated the king of pork. That will put my children and grandchildren in debt for generations to come. He must like tax money just like the democrats. He was chairman of the apporations committe under a democratic senate majority leader. So he gets along real well with the democrates. He might have voted against Obamacare but turned right around and voted to fund it with nary a whimper of protest.

          • Exactly spot on Tony,,, These people don’t seem to understand that if Obamacare had no republican support like they claim.. it wouldn’t be law…. Republicans allowed funding for this… They controlled the purse and gave it to the Dem’s… How can they sit there and lie saying that they had nothing to do with it when 25 RINOS crossed over to fund this???

          • I have heard this argument and I disagree. R’s at all costs. Stand by your man. All the good ones. I stand for principle. Period. End of discussion. I am willing to go DOWN fighting for that principle. So either you stand for principle or you are a Dem/Demlite and you have no principles. Sorry there is NO SHADE OF GREY here.

          • Agreed GB,, I am sick and tired of hearing we just need to get more Rs in there… More Rs like Thad Cockroach,, who would rather beg the enemy for help than let one of his own have the nomination…40+ yrs for Cockroach,, It’s just a disgusting game to Thad Cockroach…. Does this mean he would stand with the republicans in times of need??? Or does he now feel he owes the enemy one???? Why would I want the king of pork spending in there playing that game with my money and lively hood???

          • Actually I agree with you. Mediocrity and posing is bad. Standing for principals is good. In respect to the country and the direction it is headed. Winning and getting more republicans in power is also good and very much needed.

          • Cure Lefty says:

            Does 3rdgen stand for 3rd generation inbred? You’re completely dismissing the idea that principles and issues matter, and brushing aside the corruption within the GOP that occurred in order to place Thad “crazy treatment of animals” Cochran over Chris McDaniel in spite of the fact that McDaniel had a clear majority of the actual Republican vote: Elite RINOs yes I said RINOs banded together to essentially have the democrats pick the GOP candidate and it can not be more accurately characterized. And you’re going to squat here and tell a real conservative Duh. Or perhaps your moniker stands for 3rdgen dumb if you think that not putting a principled conservative in position rather than impotent Thad is going to help us in putting Reid,Holder,Obama, Pelosie and all of the other obamunists out to pasture – considering that RINOs wanted a pushover to play their democrat lite game instead of a firebrand to help us reinstate principles of limited government.

            Maybe it just means 3rdgenDuh.

          • You know what? You slander my name and you have the wicked witch of the west icon? Listen up you “all washed up witch” . I am not defending any sort of corruption within the GOP. I am defending the GOP period. They are the only hope we have at steering the country in a safer direction away from democratic leadership. Which has proven to be bogus. Much more bogus than anything that ever has or ever could, come out of the republican party. You are SO vehemently opposed to everything and everyone that you are absent from the cause. Now get on your stupid broom and fly out of here. You want to be some tyrant? You give the tea party a bad name.

            I am so vehemently opposed to the type of chicanery that happens when big government progressive GOP elitists band together to have democrats in Mississippi decide the Republican primary in Thad Cochran’s favor even though Thad clearly lost the Republican vote in that state. And the content thereof gets down to the issue that values, facts, integrity, standing against corruption, and focusing on less intrusive, less costly limited government as the real need at hand.

            Now if you could be so thorough as to read the by-line on my avatar, you would realize that I am poking jibes at the next *one* that the democrats are so eager to have run. As to being here, it seems that you are uncomfortable with anyone poking jibes at the party of John McCain, Orin Hatch, Mitch McConnell, and so many other GOP elitist RINOs who have no intention of limiting the size, scope, cost or level of intrusiveness of big government. You say that you are “defending the GOP period”. I just thoroughly and concisely explained to you how to rescue yourself from the mental status of 3rdgenRINO. Another correction: I am not so vehemently opposed to everything. I am absolutely for limited government. Get with the program, and stop making the tea party look like slackers in the category of intelligent discretion for conservative leadership. .

      • What was bogus, in case you missed it, was that election. What I posted is the reality of that election and its post outcry or lack there of. Facts

        Don’t tell me to not group Republican Establishment Democrats with Communist Democrats as I wish and I won’t tell you to pull your head out of your……….

        The RNC supports Thad Cockran and what he has done here. They teamed up with the enemy to defeat what registered Republicans of that state truly wanted and disenfranchised every registers Republican vote that went for McDaniel and the RNC is supportive of that. Period

        Yes they are two pigs in the same barrel of swill even though they may be fighting each other for the top of the hill next month. Fact is, they helped each other to stay in power because they both want the same thing, except who is on top of the hill; and they do not want the people of this country gaining a bigger foot hold taking their country back from them. Some people are blind.

      The current RNC is NOT the true party, and doesn’t have the guts to stand up to anyone!
      Most of that I lay at Rence Priebus’ feet–he is such a weak little person–no grit, no guts, not anything! Karl Rove should be driven out of the country, stripped of his citizenship, and told NEVER to come back or to bother us again—he is, whether he wants to admit it or not–a TRAITOR–HE is one of the reasons Mitt Romney lost in 2012! Add to Rove, John McCain, who was only trying to keep his drinking buddy in the Senate–the country could go fish! We MUST get rid of ALL the old-timers in both the House and Senate–we are in the 21st Century, and need younger, more “hip” representatives–both men and women–who can actually relate to the new stuff in the new century—ALL of these old fools began back in the days of LBJ and his failed policies–they have outlived their times, and must step aside! If men and women are expected to retire at 65 or 70, why not politicians? NO elected position should be a guaranteed lifetime career!

  8. Dana Lind says:

    McDaniel is the true winner, we have seen the depths that some Republicans will go to, to keep their seats. These should be the first to be fired. The True REPUBLICAN party needs to stand up and condemn this election and demand that the “winner” resign.

But if it is a republican backed by the TEA PARTY (R) i would vote for them… These just (Rs) Are destroying the country as much as the DemonCRATS… After all they did just sleep with them..

    Does the republicans realize they just lost the November election? Does anyone of either party have any morals? Is this what we want of our country? Yes Mr. Cochran, you should be REAL proud of yourself and your party right now. I am ashamed for you.

    • Maybe the McDanial backers will cross-over in the November election. Wouldn’t that be the sheets?

      • That is exactly what is going to happen. Thad Cochran is history. The rebellion within the Republican party has now turned to all out war.

    • builder21 says:

      I’m sure the GOP realizes that.
      Conservatives might not get it yet, but if the Progressives want the win at any cost, they would likely make sure both candidates were on their team.
      They got EXACTLY what they were shooting for with Cochran.

      They get bonus points come November when they throw Cochran under the bus and claim a Dem victory over that “Evil Conservative”.
      You KNOW the media will spin it that way………….

      We witnessed the same thing with McCain and Romney, both Progressive-lites.
      It’s the perfect back-up plan, should the voters ever suddenly THINK they’re awake and rush to the Republican ticket for redemption.

  25. Mary Cole says:

    It’s too late – much, much too late – for the Republican Party to bring healing such as would be needed with Conservative Mississippians! The Republican Party allowing itself to be controlled by the GOP-e has committed POLITICAL SUICIDE! Thad Cochran and ever so many others like him are nothing but elitist crooks. The lies, swindling, strewn filth, and aiding and abetting the ‘enemy camp’ to find recruits to deny Mississippi of its choice candidate Senator in the U.S. Congress is UNFORGIVEABLE! The Republican Party aided and abetted the GOP-e in the Mississippi Run-off election – from our governor, Phil Bryant, on down…all who came to the TEA Party for help in getting elected! They need not come back when they need re-electing.

  26. I have had a ton of comments here and replied
    to most. Here is my opinion. All these posts are mostly republicans griping
    about RINOs and compromised principals. We need to stand for conservative
    principals and not allow shady tactics. BUT possibly MORE IMPORTANT we need to
    have unity as a republican party in the most solid opposition to the current
    democratic field of people in power. AND not only that, but oppose the
    posturing of more to come of bad Obama policy and a potential future with H.
    Clinton. All of this strife is likely a factor in why Romney is not president
    right now and Obama gained another term. You that are complaining about everything probably didn’t like Romney either. You probably said “he is
    too moderate” or he is this.. or he is that. Well Romney would have been
    100x a better president than what we have. The country would have very likely
    been in better shape and a safer healthier place than it is now. So I recommend
    that we not continue down this road of bashing the party from within. Realize
    who the enemy is and not get caught up in bar fight skirmishes when there is a
    war to win.

    • If putting people who engage in the tactics Cockroach Cochran did in this primary in to office is how you propose to win this fight, count me OUT. We want lowlifes out of office. a vote for Cochran by a Conservative is a vote by a Hypocrite.

    • jerry1944 says:

      You will never get that from the mod gop that doesnt want change. Thats how they put old mitch, bonehead and mc cain back in office And they all have said they would crush the Tea Party so that shows they are no longer conservatives and love haveing to crawl before the dems

  29. Cure Lefty says:

    The best thing that Mississippi can do to fix the outsider RINOs who banded their efforts and funds to have democrats pick your candidate is to write in Chris McDaniel in the general election. Stand against the RINOs, flush their time, efforts and money spent to crap all over your choice down the toilet and write in Chris.

  30. SouthronCross says:

    The RNC is not going to do a damn thing about Thad Cochran. They wanted him re-elected, no matter what it took.

    And, they wonder why conservatives stay home in general elections…

  31. I done sent the RNC notice that if they think I will vote for that crap they can go jump in the lake, maybe we should flood their inbox and let know with out organization that we the people are disgusted and will not tolerate these corrupt strategies, if not lawless; including but not limited to voter fraud, MASSIVE voter fraud. We are a people of laws, with honesty and integrity, of good character, well maybe I am wrong maybe it is just me.

  32. johnny b says:

    We still have a chance in November… We MUST start a write-in movement so McDaniels can still kick the azs of a RINO… One that is a party to the most disgusting and despicable dirty trick campaign ever… This is something that democons do and I never thought I would see Thad Cockern as a party to this corruption….
    Now we must examine the voting records and see if they are legal because the democons are used to voter fraud…. In one county there have been 1000 violations from democons… and now the Secretary of State is trying to hamper the examination of the votes by democons… It appears that several voted in the first primary and that makes them ineligible to vote in the second primary….
    Why is the Secretary of State hampering this investigation??? One would think that the true ands fair election is what matters, but not to the Sec of State….
    I think everyone should call that office and inquire as to why they are impeding the fair count and fair election in Mississippi….
    Has Mississippi become the Chicago of the south??? Where voter fraud is the norm???
    Lets keep the pressure on and express our displeasure at the impediment by the Sec of State in the vote examination….

  33. Mike Failla says:

    It is not okay to vote in both elections! This must be repaired immediately!

  34. I hope someone gets every demoratic name that voted republican. This cannot be allowed. cochran is an undercover demorat.

  35. The only reason why I’m still in the Republican Party is so I can vote for true conservatives in primaries. After the debacle of Romney’s campaign and the GOP 2012 joke of a national convention at which validly elected delegates were not seated, I’ll never vote for a RINO again. And for the record, I didn’t support the delegate’s candidate. I support the right of voters to select their delegates and have them seated, a right the GOP elites flagrantly violated on national TV. Let the chips fall where they may, I’ll never vote for those lying cheats or their candidates again. This new controversy just seals it for me.

  36. Virginia Brahmer says:

    Cochran will stoop to anything to remain in power. This is disgusting.

  37. Carolyn Baker says:

    Because of these despicable actions, I will no longer even consider donating one penny to a Republican. The fact that none of them has stood up to Cochran or called him out on it tells me that they are not true conservatives. In the past it was easy to vilify the dems because this was just the way they conducted business and have done so for decades. There are so many RINOs that I doubt the GOP is truly republican anymore. The tea partiers I have been following have been consistently for the right values. Constitutional integrity among them. Go TP. you have my support.

  38. Flood RNC mail box with negative responses to this corruption; it may not change this situation but it may help, at least make them think on the reactions of continued voter fraud corruption, If the RNC thinks I will vote for any of them after this they can jump in the lake,

  39. Don’t hold your breath for this..

    The democrats and republicans have done a good job destroying this country and after what Cochran has done , Wouldn’t it be better to just let the democrats have it all ? vote all Rino’s out let this melt down happen ! ( It’s going to happen anyway ) We all see it coming don’t we ? No matter how hard we have fought to keep America free and prosperous , It is all slipping away from us and I think ( and know ) We have lost what America once stood for ! Too much damage has been done ! The people in this country are asleep and nothing is going to wake them up faster than to let this melt down happen ! Then after everyone is awake and we ALL realize what we have lost ,Then we can all stand together and take this country back and NOT EVER let this country forget again !

  41. Dalton Mann says:

    i am kinda confused on how they accomplished this? on the 24 th in oklahoma we had our elections too. when i went to the polls i had to show them my id and tell me my party affiliation and sign on the line in the appropriate book, and they handed me my appropriate ballot. how did this happen? i dont understand how all these people from another party could get a ballot for another party’s election? without an id or signing on the line, so please if someone can explain this to me i would appreciate it.

    • It is called “open primaries.” Some states have em. Some states have also had their voter ID laws struck down by fed. district courts as discriminatory, (because most minority voters can’t afford the ID they are required to show to enroll for federal assistance programs.) I believe MS. is one of these in both cases.

  42. Bernice Graham says:

    Theo and Carolyn, I’m with you. I don’t donate too much to the Reps, but I won’t even give that much. Several years ago I told them they wasted funds by mailing several letters a day to the doners. We don’t owe them anything, they work for us!

  43. I always thought it was the Democrats who lied through their teeth, circled the wagons in DC, campaigned like bottom-feeders, handed out ‘walking money,’ and engaged in massive voter fraud. But thanks to Cochran and Barbour it looks like there are some RINO Republicans are in the cesspool too. What a miserable episode in politics. For two cents I would strongly support a third party; but unfortunately, that would only ensure Democrat hold on our government for the next two decades (till there would be no country left to save).

    • Wade in the sewer long enough and the stench fades away. Seems that some third generational Republicans might have been swimming in the sewer with RINOs too long.

    The RNC? Condemn Cochran’s dirty tricks? LOL The Tea Party is a direct result of the inability of the RNC to exhibit any kind of support for Conservatives or even conservative thinking.
