An Opportunity to Rid the Senate of Three RINOs

Intro to Malkin's Article: An Opportunity to Rid the Senate of Three RINOs

The RINOs and neo-cons (pretty much one in the same) in the Republicoward Party are as big a problem as the whole lot of the Devilrats, because most of the voting public have no idea how sneakily leftist they are. They need to go and this election year provides us with an excellent opportunity to get rid of them.

To save the nation from an economic catastrophe, we must get rid of the people who backed TARP and the bailouts of AIG and the broke car companies who, though Obogo is going about this week bragging about how well GM is doing, still owe $23b on their "loans." (give me $80b and see if I can keep a broken business afloat) 

Fannie and Freddie need another $4.8b immediately from the taxpayers to survive after dumping $180b into that black hole, and Obogo has just announced that he is providing two broke solar-panel companies with another $2b. Meanwhile, the Party of conservative fiscal policies allows a RINO to get them in an argument over contraception. As I've said, they don't call them the Stupid Party for no reason.

Note that 100,000 Dumborats showed up Michigan to vote for Santorum, a state in which anyone registered can vote in the primaries. That ought to wake up any brainwashed lunch-box carrying ape as to who the phony is in this primary, eh?

But we do have an opportunity to get rid of a few of the worst of the Big Government Republicowards this election.

However, they will have the money, the Republicoward establishment, FOX News, and the neo-cons on their side. Look for Carl Rove, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly, Charles Krauthammer, and others on FOX to knock their primary challengers, as they did good candidates trying to replace phonies in the last election.

A few notes scattered about this article.

An Opportunity to Rid the Senate of Three RINOs

A Tea Party Senate Takeover

Michelle Malkin

The tea party isn't dead. It's just looking down ballot. While fiscal conservatives remain split over the GOP presidential candidates, grassroots activists are coalescing around a stellar slate of limited-government candidates looking to reinforce and reenergize the right in Washington. 

And in the spirit of the modern-day tea party movement, no entrenched incumbent-Democrat or Republican-is safe.

Utah was Ground Zero for the movement's first major electoral upset. In April 2009, this column first reported on a Salt Lake City tea party protest of 2,000 Utahans who repeatedly booed GOP Sens. Bob Bennett and Orrin Hatch for supporting the $700 billion TARP bank bailout. In May 2010, the three-term, 76-year-old Bennett got the boot at the GOP state convention. Young conservative lawyer Mike Lee, who clerked for Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito, went on to win the seat.

Now, young conservative entrepreneur and renowned state pension reformer Dan Liljenquist is taking on Utah's other big government Republican barnacle: 77-year-old Hatch. Liljenquist excelled in the private sector as a global management consultant and business strategist; he also helmed a privately owned call center company that grew from two to 1,500 employees since its 1995 founding. Liljenquist was elected to the Utah Senate in 2008, where he spearheaded state pension and Medicaid reforms that earned him the non-partisan Governing magazine's 2011 "Public Official of the Year" award.

The 36-year, six-term Hatch was first elected in 1976 on an anti-entrenched incumbent platform. Hatch's campaign line then against his opponent Frank Moss: "What do you call a Senator who's served in office for 18 years? You call him home." Now, Hatch is clinging to power after almost four decades in government-and is vainly attempting to claim the tea party mantle to stave off Liljenquist's David vs. Goliath primary challenge.

Hatch co-sponsored the $6 billion national service boondoggle and dedicated it to his good friend Teddy Kennedy, with whom he also joined hands to create the ever-expanding SCHIP healthcare entitlement. He slobbered over corruptocrat Democratic Sen. Chris Dodd, supported tax cheat Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner from

Day One, lavished praise on Joe Biden's manhood, and embraced and defended Attorney General Eric Holder's nomination because, he said, "I like Barack Obama, and I want to help him if I can." (A bigtime RINO, Hatch has voted for every Big Government bill to come to the Senate floor in the last 36-years. He also calmly went along with allowing the Left to put two of the most radical judges ever on the US Supreme Court: Sotomayor and Kagan. With people like him in the Senate it is no wonder the Republicowards can't get a decent bill passed. AM)

In Indiana, another aging liberal Republican dinosaur is fighting for his political life by masquerading as a tea party standard-bearer. The six-term 79-year-old Sen. Dick Lugar-who prides himself on being Obama's favorite Republican-hasn't lived in his home state since 1977. He supported the Obama stimulus law, job-killing environmental mandates and the taxpayer bailouts of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, as well as the auto and banking industry bailouts. (Lugar lied to and betrayed Reagan three times that I know of; he should have been ousted years ago. He is a RINO and a rat if there's ever been one. AM)

Richard Mourdock, Indiana's former state treasurer, offers a fresh alternative with widespread support from both grassroots activists and local and state GOP officials. While others hedged their bets, Mourdock took the federal auto bailout head on, lodging a court complaint against the Chrysler bailout to expose its illegal abuse

of shareholders and punitive impact on Indiana citizens. He was elected to the treasurer's office in 2006, a tough year for Republicans, and was re-elected handily in 2010. Before politics, he worked in the private sector for 30 years managing businesses in the energy, environmental, and construction industries. He's never had a Beltway zip code.

In Texas, young attorney Ted Cruz is making waves in the GOP race to replace retiring GOP Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison. The former Texas solicitor general is a 10th Amendment scholar who doesn't just speak the Tea Party's language. Cruz has put constitutional conservatism into action, winning many of the 40 cases he has argued in front of the Supreme Court. Cruz isn't afraid to challenge the GOP establishment. In 2008, he successfully battled the Bush administration and meddling globalists all the way to the high court to prevent international law from superseding American sovereignty. (We definitely need people who will stand up to the Republicoward

Establishment, because its members are as bad or worse than the Demonrats. AM)

The GOP needs just four seats to take control of the Senate. With inspired and inspiring free-market candidates like Dan Liljenquist, Richard Mourdock, and Ted Cruz, 2012 bodes well for the Tea Party footprint on Capitol Hill. 

Remember: Entrenched incumbency is the disease. Fresh blood is the cure.
