We’re not in Raleigh anymore: #NCSEN race sounding a lot like one for #NCGA

kaytomThe last six years in DC has offered a treasure trove of ammunition for conservatives seeking to ”take out the trash” in our nation’s capital.  Barry Obama has wrecked our economy, further damaged our health care delivery system, shoved gay marriage and abortion-on-demand down our throats,  and made us an international laughingstock, among other things.  And OUR KAY has been a ready, willing, and able accomplice for him in that mission.

Now, that we have a GOP nominee against Kay Hagan, you would think we’d hear a lot about her antics over the last six years.  But, sadly, no.  The media and the Hagan campaign have focused the debate on the current General Assembly.  The Tillis campaign appears to be taking the bait — telling us all about what Kay DID in Raleigh from 1999 to 2008.  This would be a great tactic if Tillis were trying to unseat Hagan from the North Carolina Senate. 

Here is a sampling of things you could be reminding the voters about, in regard to Madame Sock Puppet.  Hagan has been taking credit for stuff where she was really nothing more than a bystander.  Kay and her caucus voted to pay for ObamaCare by raising interest rates on student loans.   She’s played racial demagogue on state election reforms and has helped hammer through amnesty legislation.  Kay has voted in favor of giving states the power to collect sales taxes from online sales.   She’s voted to clamp down on the Second Amendment while vociferously defending a “right” to abortion that is not mentioned anywhere in our Founding Documents.  The abortion industry has been loading her campaign treasury with cash.   Kay has voted in support of judges who want more government meddling in churches as well as radical leftists for key Justice Department posts.  She also told us that we’d grow to LOVE ObamaCare if we only took time to “understand” it.

It’s time to talk about Kay’s tenure in DC and how the Republican nominee will do better over the next six years.

  1. There was a point in the Romney campaign where a clear shift occurred and, whether consciously or not, his campaign began to be about rescuing his future in the Republican party.
    Seeing the Tillis campaign flounder with an unpopular candidate after they pissed off the grassroots makes me wonder how many in his campaign are beginning to see the writing on the wall.

  2. With a liberal dingbat to run against, you would think that we would field a candidate who could rise to the occasion and use her record against her. Thanks to Karl Rove and his outside meddling in our primary, we do not. We are stuck with a candidate whose own record makes it difficult to go after some of Hagan’s weaknesses, the very same situation we had with Romney as nominee for president..

    The first thing, Tillis should have done is resign as Speaker, which would have freed him from the entanglement he now finds himself in. The Speaker of the Oklahoma House, T. W. Shannon, had the smarts to resign as Speaker as soon as he became a US Senate candidate this year. Tillis and those around him did not have the same smarts, or maybe they did not want to lose the pay for play fundraising opportunities of being Speaker.

    Watching Tillis reminds us why Rove has lost 10 of the 12 US Senate races he has gotten involved in.

  3. You kind of get the feeling that Tillis doesn’t really know what’s going on and is woefully incompetent.

  4. 2 leftists in a race, does it really matter who wins? Neither party has the guts or honor to do what is necessary to fix this country.

  5. The end game is to elect Tillis to retire Hagan and bench Harry Reid. If we don’t do this we will never see conservative measures from the House see a vote in the Senate! It’s as simple as that!

  6. Tillis is a non-starter since Rove. Changing to unaffliated. Cannot in principle vote Republican anymore. Had enough.

    1. Yes there are problems with Tillis as Senate nominee, but there are quite a few other good Republicans out there to vote for in NC. I understand your angst about Tillis and Rove, but that is not a reason to throw the baby out with the bath water.

      1. Agreed, there seem to be vert distinctly different types of Republicans out there. If and when I see the type that align with my principles, I’m more than happy to give my support and cast my vote for ’em.

        Party affiliation alone is no longer a worthwhile or obvious mark for or against. (Although, I admit I have yet to see someone align themselves with the Democrat party and still be someone who’s principles I can say are at all related to my own).

        Tillis is, of course, in a different boat than that one. 🙂

  7. ” The media and the Hagan campaign have focused the debate on the current General Assembly. ”

    Gee…. never coulda seen “that” one comin, eh? 🙂

    “It’s time to talk about Kay’s tenure in DC and how the Republican nominee will do better over the next six years.”

    “do better”?? 🙂 heh, sorry, but sad to say, that ship has sailed. The sad truth is, Tillis is not likely to be an “improvement” – It’s simply trading one bag of stupid for another. Barring a miracle of some kind, the people of NC are going to have poor representation in DC for at least a few more years. Apparently, we’re in to that kinda thing *shrug*

    I agree… Hagan is a horrible representative, but it’s a mistake to think Tillis is somehow “better” just because he’s horrible in a different fashion.

    1. Many conservatives saw that focus on the legislature coming, too, back in the primaries, and argued that Tillis was a weak nominee because of it. Rove and the establishment party bosses did not seem to comprehend that. The Democrat US Senate campaign beating up on the Republican legislature due to Tillis being the nominee is also likely to cost us seats in the legislature. After Blueprint, and the incompetent GOP pushback against it, it was a death wish to run anyone from the legislature for the US Senate. To win the Senate seat and to hold our own in the legislature, it was imperative that our Senate nominee NOT be a legislator. Rove was move interested in getting an establishment ally as the nominee than whether that nominee could actually win or not.
