McConnell-BoehnerCharlie Crist, now running as a Democrat for Governor of Florida, could be a United States Senator.

Trey Grayson, now working for a super PAC to elect Democrats, could be a United States Senator too.

Bob Bennett, who joined Democrats to come up with a federal individual mandate, could still be a United States Senator.

Arlen Specter, who recently passed away, could have died still a sitting United States Senator.

David Dewhurst, the moderate to liberal Republican Lieutenant Governor of Texas now struggling to stay elected after a conservative wave through the Lone Star State, could be a Senator.

All of these men were supported by Mitch McConnell either openly or behind the scenes. All of these men are the men McConnell wanted to surround himself with.

Imagine a United States Senate with Charlie Crist and Arlen Specter and without Rand Paul, Mike Lee, and Ted Cruz. That is the United States Senate that Mitch McConnell wanted.

Now McConnell says of the new crop of conservative candidates that he wants to “crush them everywhere.” He calls conservatives traitors, fringe, and drunk.

Mitch McConnell backed Charlie Crist against Marco Rubio.

Mitch McConnell backed Trey Grayson against Rand Paul.

Mitch McConnell backed Bob Bennett against Mike Lee.

Mitch McConnell backed David Dewhurst against Ted Cruz.

Mitch McConnell backed Arlen Specter against Pat Toomey.

It is time to back Matt Bevin against Mitch McConnell.

    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx For me judgment is based on what one believes to be right in a broader version than “rules”. This website usually means getting our country back, but what is one using as a Model?. For some
    it is the country we were told the Founders planned, and the success of such a country, free of obsessive control, based on the belief that poeple are basically honest and with a sense of justice for all ingreaned in their soul. WEll, we cannot list here what is HONEST. Universally, honesty decries deceatful people. So, on the above list of preferences we differ greatly. For me, Ron and Rand Paul are the most sincere, and that is very important. Both love this country and while I do not agree with following Liertarian or any doctrine, they fight for what is correct and proper–“Do into others….” the principle is a good one. I do not think Cruz fits any where close to our principle because he is perceived as standing for any thing that gets him elected. RUBIO is basically decent but wrong people are advising him, as well as too young and inexperienced to be President in todays world. Look where and what Bush got us into, it was not his idea. All others are just politicians. Do you like their politics for sure based on what appeal to the “numero uno” people.
    Finally, The Tea Party went wrong, took over by politicians looking for a ride BUT, the original people were sincere. USE your judgment, assess the individual, study their sources for the opinion they express, is it for large block of Votes or what is good for the Country and the Nation. That is Ron Paul and Rand. Rand needs to get off the abstraction and get down to application such as: “Is Feinstain right in claiming Consitutional immunity from the CIA?” The Constitution also assure us that NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW. Was the CIA looking for illegal leaks? if so it was their job to check. As for “immunity” and Separate parts, Yes. the Executive is also a separate part and,the President makes foreign policy. Any country will tell you that in foreign affairs spreading bad info, or even Passing info, to foreign entities, especially the potential opposition, IS TREASON, Ms Feinstein, and that is what the Congress should be concerned with. It took the Press, and few of them at that to “call” Graham and Mc Cain on that. Clean out that nest of vipers you have there and Rand/Ron Paul should help by standing on the facts.
