Exactly What is Wrong with Politics: RINO US Senator Dick Lugar Complains that Tea Party Trying To Reclaim GOP’s Conservative Principles is Responsible for Republican Senate Minority…
Hey Senator Dick Lugar, how about some cheese with that whine!
RINO Senator Dick Lugar (IN-R) appeared on CNN’s State of the Union. over the weekend and blamed the Tea Party for killing off Republican efforts to gain a majority in the US Senate. He also went on to bitch and moan that he dare be opposed with a primary challenge by a Tea Party backed candidate. UNREAL … this is exactly what is wrong with politics and why Americans have such a poor view of Congress. These incumbents think they are entitled to be there, no matter whether they are Democrats or Republicans. How dare the Tea Party dare try restore the GOP party with Conservative Republican values.
Dick Lugar living up to his name on CNN
Sen. Dick Lugar (Ind.) facing a primary contest from the right in his reelection bid said past Tea Party-backed challenges had “killed off” Republican efforts to take the Senate in the past and could undermine a GOP majority again in 2012.
“A Republican majority in the Senate is very important, and Republicans who are running for reelection ought to be supported by people who want to see that majority,” Lugar said in an interview which aired Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union.
“I think the majority of Tea Party people understand that too,” he added.
What an IDIOT! It is folks like Dick Lugar that brought into power Barack Obama and overwhelming majorities for Democrats in the House and Senate in 2008. It would appear that DICK has conveniently forgot the 2010 “WAVE” election that saw the Tea Party phenomenon thrust into office a majorities in the House, GOP Governors, Republican pick ups of 680 state legislature seats, and major gains in the US Senate. I guess Lugar missed these gains and the Republican party is only in the position they are because of the Tea Party. Americans did not vote en mass because of RINO’s like Lugar, they voted against the tax and spend establishment candidates. How does Lugar explain Tea Party favorites Marco Rubio winning in Florida? Or Senator Pat Toomay and the GOP sweep in PA? Hmm, what about Tea Party favorite Ron Johnson who beat incumbent lib Russ Feingold in the blue state of Wisconsin?
As stated by Weasel Zippers, Lugar represents every thing wrong with the Republican party. I will go one further, he represents everything that is wrong with today’s political process. Lugar is not entitled to be a US Senator. Individuals are allowed a political voice and have a right to support anything they want, especially if they do not agree with the establishment. Sorry, the GOP did not win in the Senate because hanger-on RINO’s wanted it to be more about them and the establishment Republicans shunned the new and breath of fresh air Tea party candidates.
The following comes from the US Declaration of Independence, if “We the People” have a right to abolish and institute a new form of government, WE certainly have the right to ELECT out of office incumbents who we do not agree with.
That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.
This is why all Americans should be for “TERM LIMITS” for House and Senate offices. Lugar is a 6 term Senator who was first elected in 1976. Sorry, but this is a big part of the problem. No politicians should be able to benefit from the incumbency and be able to have a life-time position. Never did the Founding Fathers expect politics to be a career with a pension plan. Keep it up Republicans and you will be in the minority, WE THE PEOPLE are sick of the establishment and the mess you have collectively got the Unites States into.
WE DON’T HAVE TO AGREE WITH YOU … YOU HAVE TO GET OUR VOTE AND DO NOT EVER FORGET IT. WE CAN FIRE YOU AT ANY TIME!
