Cornyn to conservatives: Screw you!

The NRSC Chairman says it is not "realistic" to try to elect conservatives to the Senate:
Sen. John Cornyn (Texas), the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), suggested that conservatives need to have a more realistic sense of which races are winnable and with which candidates.
"Folks on the right . . . have to yield to the world as it is and not necessarily how they wish it would be," Cornyn told Reuters for a story about centrist Rep. Mike Castle's (R) bid for Senate next year in Delaware.
But Florida is not Delaware, is it, Senator? With 2010 shaping up as a good year for Republicans, the candidate with the "R" beside his name is a contender, and in every single race where the NRSC's influence has been exercised, it has favored bland "moderates" like Castle, a worthless fossil from the Gerald Ford era.

It's the same deal in California and Florida, and also in Nevada, where the "establishment" candidate is the former GOP state chairwoman whose chief achievement is running the state party into the ground. By backing the failed politics and failed politicians of yesterday, the NRSC is forfeiting the future.


  1. John Cornyn can kisss our ass! Us conservatives are clean house in 2010 and it starts in Florida!

  2. This really looks to be like a time to be more proactive. Republican higher ups choosing a candidate is one thing, but letting them get away with it is another. The power of the tea parties must be applied to every primary possible. There are signs of success already. Rand Paul is giving it his all in KY, while Toomey is ready to smack down Specter or Sestak. Rubio has gone from a 53% deficit in January to a 43% even tie. Michael L Williams in TX has got the backing of DeMint after Hutchison retires. Heck, even Chuck DeVore is tied at 27% with Fiorina. In Nevada, Sharron Angle is the one that conservatives can get behind. She even beats Reid by similar margins as Lowden and Tarkanian.

    PS: It certainly didn't hurt to gain Parker Griffith.

  3. Too bad people who voted Obama could not buy back their vote like the reps in congress are selling theirs? And why do we not have term limits again?

  4. Ignore him. Work your tail off in the primaries to get a conservative nominated. But even if a moderate wins the primary, still work your tail off to get a Republican of any kind in office- even RINO's voted against the cap-and-trade and healthcare bills.

  5. Dear Mr Cornyn... As a member of the GOP and a believer in its values rather than the opportunistic timeservers looking to protect their own rice bowls, permit me to say... you're fired.

  6. I also think we must vote for conservatives in the primaries. Rubio is a perfect example. Take over the Republican party. We cannot afford a third party spoiler.
