THAD COCHRAN ATTACKS TEA PARTY RIVAL CHRIS MCDANIEL FOR ATTENDING TEA PARTY EVENT
Breitbart ^ | April 4, 2014 | by MICHAEL PATRICK LEAHY

Posted on 04/04/2014 3:43:38 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

Friday morning, Sen. Thad Cochran's (R-MS) campaign sent out a press release criticizing his GOP primary challenger, state senator Chris McDaniel, for planning to attend a major Tea Party rally this weekend.

"This Saturday, Kentucky will focus on the Final Four in Texas, Thad Cochran's campaign will focus on Mississippi...and Chris McDaniel will focus on...Kentucky?" the release began.

"I love how Orwellian they get," FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe told Breitbart News as part of an exclusive interview. Kibbe's group is hosting the event, titled "Free PAC Kentucky," which will feature remarks by Glenn Beck and is taking place Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's political back yard.

"If anybody's a Washington insider it's Thad Cochran," Kibbe said of the six-term, 76-year-old senior Senator from Mississippi.

For Kibbe, author of the new book Don't Hurt People and Don't Take Their Stuff, the notion that the Cochran campaign has any "grassroots" component is hysterical.

America is still a two party country with the DCP and the RCP
The Democrat Communist Party, and the Republican Communist Party. What hope is there for the once great country?

I have long said we need a new 3rd Party—and I don’t think its the drug crazy Libertarians or the Reform Nut Case Party—But more like the Conservative—or—Constutional Parties. I said long ago in Mittens was defeated—with all he had going for him—then the GOP was dead. We need a Liberty Party—IF The Democrats win the next election and put their Obama Clone in the White House in 2016 (Hillary is too much of a thinker—so the Democrats will NOT run her—they couldn’t control her like obama) IF that happens or if the GOP becomes the RINO Party—Democrat Light. Then Liberty we must go! We will take the best, brightest, most clever, best known, and start a party that will drive the GOP from American History. I can see out future platform—Pro-Growth, Pro-American, Pro-Military, Pro-Guns, and Pro-Freedom. I can see out leaders—if they will come forward—Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Mike Lee, Don Trump, Newt Grigrich, Glen Beck, Clint Eastwood, (the list is too long to place here) and Chris McDaniel! We must do this and stop the rot in the ship of state before it takes on more water, or rams into the rocks. We must do this or see the USA—as breaking into several nations—the American Dream will die of self destruction.

It must be bad for Thad because a liberal friend of mine in Jackson is posting pro Thad things on his Facebook. It may be the first time in our lives that this friend has posted anything nice about a Republican.

Cochran is a demented 76 year old fossil.

Preposterous that creatures like him will do whatever it takes to make sure they stay in Congress until they either die or become so senile that they are incomprehensible, and even then are mostly successful at keeping their seats.

Term Limits via an Article V Amendment is our last chance.

OMG, a member of the TEA Party is going to a Tea Party event. TC, if you want to go to a Moderate Democrat Party event you can, but please, STFU. You're a moron who would fight Conservatives instead of the Marxists.

When was the last time you were home in Mississippi, Thad?

The NRA can be confusing in their endorsements, because they go by voting record only. Sometimes the opponent does not have any voting record to go by. That’s what happened when they endorsed Gillibrand in NY over a much more conservative opponent who had no voting record.

Not sure if that is true in this case, but it probably is. I’m sure the 2A people will let me know if I’m wrong.

I don’t see any other way the NRA could do it, really. They have to have a clear standard or there would be constant disputes.

I’ve been saying that it’s time to Organize “THE CONSERVATIVE PARTY of AMERICA”. But, the word “conservative” has been so demonized in the minds of millions of Americans, I can go with “THE AMERICAN LIBERTY PARTY” or just “THE LIBERTY PARTY”. I like the way you think and express yourself.

The defeat of Thad Cochran will be a triple whammy:

1. One less RINO in the Senate.
2. A major blow and a “eff you” to the GOPe.
3. And a big-time rejection of the twangy Haley Barbour who has worked so hard for the old fart.

I’m lovin’ this!

Impossible, a conservative "3rd Party" only serves to elect RATs. (See: History)

Unless and until you completely have a majority of something in either the House or Senate, whoever does WILL control the committees and the floor votes.

How many decades do you have?

Besides, there are already 53 "third parties".

Once the Republicans were a 3rd Party. Maybe we need to take over one of the existing 3rd Parties. Its that or be locked into the Two Party system—with outany real differences—we that have now. Rino Republicans or Progressive Democrats until they merge into the Progressve-Workers party in the future. Now they just trade jobs—in the future a one party state will surface—and elections will be forced—and rigged.

“This clown is 76 years old. I mean, seriously. Why can’t politicians realize when it’s time for them to hang it up?”

First of all, Reagan was 73 when he ran against Mondale.

Second, the last republican senator from NM was Pete Domenici. I did not want him to retire as I thought we might lose that seat permanently. I did not want him to retire until I saw him in person and he made the right decision.

I also saw Ted Stevens before his election loss and he should have retired as he was having trouble walking.

I recently met Cochran. His mind is clear, he knows the issues, he is physically fit and able. There is no reason for him to retire.
