Posted on 10/15/2013 4:57:30 PM PDT by Sybeck1
Weve written extensively of late regarding the widening divide between fiscally conservative Republicans and the neoconservative fiscally liberal wing of the party led by U.S. Senators John McCain, Lindsey Graham and John Cornyn.
In fact according to the website Mississippi PEP, theyve censured him.
For those of you unfamiliar with this aging RINO, Cochran is one of several Southern Republicans who habitually caves to U.S. President Barack Obama and congressional Democrats (along with Graham, North Carolinas Richard Burr, Tennessees Lamar Alexander and Georgias Johnny Isakson).
When any official continues to engage repeatedly in a course of conduct that violates fundamental principles of the Mississippi Republican Platform, even after such actions have been publicly called to his attention, it is the responsibility of all Republicans, including this body, to take such remedial measures as are reasonably available to them, a censure resolution against Cochran reads.
Item one on the resolution?
Cochrans cowardly vote last month enabling Democrats in the U.S. Senate to pass a spending plan which included funding for Obamacare.

We don’t have a candidate yet is the depressing thing. Cochran has yet to announce if he’s retiring or not (hope he does).
Mississippi, you don’t need to imitate Tennessee. Deep red states deserve hardcore conservatives. Not squishes.
My MS friends on Facebook are fed up with him. Hope he loses if he runs again.
Half of the republican party is just a bunch of democrats in drag, and they don’t even care if they show it anymore. One party rule is the name of the game now, and any opposition to new paradigm will be crushed. See the political lynching of Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz, and the TEA party as an example.
No one will run against him, but he has gotten his last vote from me.
It’s the attitude of the Senate. A few members from both sides can make a gang and decide what gets passed on their own with no accountability. They’re easily bought off and have no loyalty to their constituents or their campaign promises. That’s what this constitutional crisis is really about.
If you are on FaceBook, friend him. He's exactly what Mississippi needs in DC.
Get my nephew in law to run against him
Thanks for the info. Bad Thad needs to go.
Cornyn is a Karl Rove butt boy and is on the political chopping block right now. Primary opponents are meeting as we speak. Texans LOVE CRUZ!!! and PERRY!! I think Perry may run for Cornyn’s seat!!
Mississippi conservatives should find a good primary opponent before the Mississippi establishment RINOs find one of their own.
Think like a Democrat
Talk like a Democrat
Agree with Democrats
VOTE like a Democrat
And hang out with Democrats
Why don’t you just admit you ARE a democrat and get it over with? What is your possible reason for continuing to call yourself a Republican?
This Thursday, October 17, during the lunch hour (12:00 noon) at the Ellisville Courthouse, I will be making an announcement (one way or the other) regarding my political future.
Please come join us, and please free to SHARE with friends.
Posted on Chris McDaniel's FaceBook page. Looks like he may be running!!
I would rather have GOHMERT also, however PERRY would be a sure
win. He is a great governor, he has some faults for sure but he is far more conservative than the RINO there now!!!
I’m totally behind him if he jumps in
I’m totally behind him if he jumps in
State Senator Chris McDaniel is going to formally announce noon Thursday in Ellisville.
That’s an idee. Gohmert is real TEA PARTY. Ill do that
The only thing I know about Thad is that he paid me after mowing his lawn in the early eighties.
Once a good guy. Now just one of the “bought”.
I will never again vote for this progressive trent lott butt boy!
Yeah we’ve had enough. But even if this leech loses, he will cash a paycheck better than most of us earn. Every month for the rest of his life.
Let that sink in for a moment.
It is past time to eliminate all pensions for Congress.
Actually Lott and Cochran never got along; neither did Specter and Heinz. But in both situations, there was little difference in their voting records. Lott knew how to inflate his voting record to deceive the uninformed. People in PA and MS may have had the two most important Civil War battles in their states, but about all they know now is to go with their “friendly” incumbent.
Repeal the Seventeenth Amendment.
Can we (Texas Pubbies) censure Cornball??? If not, why not?
I also asked if they're getting lots of calls asking the same thing. He said they're getting quite a few calls. I told him that Louie would have an army standing ready to volunteer, donate, etc to boot Corny.
lott and cochran conspired together and protected bill clinton without a doubt. I despise both men. wicker is hardly any better. Believe me... if cochran runs with no primary opponent... many will just leave it blank. We will never vote for a rat but I will never again cast a vote for cochran. Most rats that would have a chance would vote exactly like cochran. The man hasn’t answered an email or a phone call with a follow up yet. At least wicker does that. We have a great Governor now... much better than the fat corporatist criminal loving barbour. What a putrid pos he turned out to be. We are trying to clean up Mississippi... we have a great Congressman now at least. Palazzo has been very good. He may replace wicker on 2016.
You might want to check yourself on Perry. He’s not terrible, but I don’t think many Texan’s are fooled by him. He backed his own RINO for Cruz’s spot until Palin anointed Cruz for the win. Dewhurst fell off the map when Palin came to town and Cruz went up 30+ points. I could live with Perry, but I hold no illusions that he wouldn’t end up even worse then Cornyn.
