Getting Rid of RINOs April 28, 2011

Posted by Michael in Politics.

They need to go. Just sayin’.

Senator Dick Lugar from Indiana is Obama’s favorite liberal Republican. He used to represent me. He has been in D.C. way too long, and has totally lost touch with his Hoosier constituency, which are largely hard working salt-of-the-earth people in flat corn country. Lugar, I suppose, is a welcome guest at Georgetown cocktail parties.

Indiana’s current Treasurer, a Tea Party insurgent, is trying to oust him.

He has been in D.C. way too long, and has totally lost touch with his Hoosier constituency, which are largely hard working salt-of-the-earth people in flat corn country.

If not for the Hoosier/corn references you could be talking about Orrin Hatch. Since the last election and Bob Bennett getting booted Hatch is talking like a red-meat-tea-partier. I’m not buying it.

Skinny, even if we don’t get rid of them, I’m happy just to scare them.

The dirty secret of American politics is the vulnerability that incumbents all have to the party primary process, where not much money and not many people can make a big difference, if they are motivated and paying attention. That’s what the Tea Party figured out. They scare Republicans more than Democrats, and they are working not just on national or state politics, but on the level of county and city boards, where the leverage of a few motivated people and a little money is even greater.

You don’t necessarily have to beat a RINO. You just have to scare them. Orrin Hatch is a good example. People like Orrin need to be reminded that their constituents are ultimately in charge, and the home-town folks matter more than a dinner invitation from Arianna Huffington or a box seat at the Kennedy Center courtesy of some lobbyist.

I want to scare them AND get rid of them and am spending a LOT of time and effort to do just this!
