Mr. Lugar (yes I refuse to give him the honorarium Senator) has been in Washington DC for way to long. It is the Lugar’s the Schumer’s the Harry Reids, who have sat and destroyed this beautiful country of ours for their own small minded and wealth desired benefits. They no more care about the 309M Americans in this country then they care about about the fly they swat in their luscious offices. When Lugar went to DC he as they all do promised to be there shortly and to help right this ship, instead he helped tip her so far, she is the equivalent of the Titanic. It never makes this conservative happy to throw out one of our own but when one of our own becomes one of the bums, it is time to Throw Them Out.
The last time Richard Lugar was challenged in his own party it was 1976, he wasn’t yet the incumbent senator and he beat his main rival, a former governor, by 35 percentage points.
For Lugar, who has held that Senate seat ever since, that was the definition of a tough primary election.
It’s not just that he’s got his first primary opponent in 36 years.
Lugar’s problem isn’t really Treasurer Richard Mourdock, who faces him in the May 8 election. It’s all the groups that have lined up with Mourdock.
There are fiscal conservatives, including the Club for Growth, led by former Indiana Rep. Chris Chocola.
There are social conservatives, such as the Indiana Right to Life.
There are tea party groups, both home-grown Indiana organizations and national ones such as FreedomWorks and Tea Party Express, and political powerhouses such as the National Rifle Association.
There are so many lined up against Lugar that the Democratic candidate, U.S. Rep. Joe Donnelly, hasn’t had to join the debate. Besides, other Democrats and outside liberal groups such as the American Bridge 21st Century political action committee have been happy to pile on.
In short, Lugar is taking fire from the right, from the left — and, perhaps worst of all, may have shot himself in the foot by choosing to have no home in Indiana. Voters who know nothing of Lugar other than the TV ads they see might think he is a 79-year-old Virginia resident.
The net result is Lugar is facing an election like none he has ever before experienced, and he is in trouble. Polls from Democrats and conservative groups show him leading Mourdock, but with support less than 50 percent — typically a sign that an incumbent is vulnerable.
You needn’t even read the entire block quote, the beginning where it starts at 1976 is all one needs to know about Lugar. No man or woman should have a lifetime appointment to the Senate or the Congress, they are stale, they are whores and they are looking to line their pockets. They stopped giving a crap about you around their second term, when they agreed that “comity” was the rule of the day. Let me add that the hateful word “comity” only works one way. the socialist Democrat way.
