Who Can Oust Patty Murray?

by lewwaters

Patty Murray, dubbed “the Mom in Tennis Shoes” and first elected as US Senator in 1992, is facing another “tough election” in her bid to retain her seat of power. In typical leftist fashion, Murray begins the victim card early by whining of a “tough election” even though she is Washington States senior Senator and holds some very powerful positions in the Senate.

Murray says she “understands voters’ frustration with a struggling economy, prolonged war, complex reforms in health care and the fact that a fix for immigration issues continues to elude Congress,” completely ignoring that she has been part and parcel of the escalating economic problems and growing tension over ILLEGAL immigration that she and her fellow Senators have long ignored.

Claiming “Every time I run, I’m an underdog,” Murray’s $11 Million raised for her campaign war chest isn’t too shabby.

Murray, queen darling of pork laden leftists, is facing 3 viable Republican challengers, Dino Rossi, Clint Didier and Paul Akers and defeating her will be a tough task. But, she is vulnerable, as shown in Rasmussen Polling, giving Didier and Rossi each 48% to her 45% preference by voters polled.

Akers remains close behind her and gaining ground.

After our August 11 primary, only one will be running against her and it is critical, if we wish to unseat Patty finally and hopefully begin returning sanity to our government, that we choose who best can defeat her.

Dino Rossi, twice defeated for governor of Washington State, the 2004 election being an obvious stolen election, enjoys the most name recognition, but doesn’t seem to hold the passion for the run like he once did. His late entry into the race is said to have prevented much fund raising of others as they tried to build campaigns, most of those candidates dropping once he entered and endorsing him.

Clint Didier, former football player and farmer, is gaining in name recognition and is probably the most passionate of the three. However, he has chosen to embrace the foreign policy and other views of well-known politikook, Ron Paul in regards to the ongoing War in Afghanistan and the health reform bill purchased 3,000 shotguns for the IRS.

Paul Akers, inventor, entrepreneur and small businessman, remains the least known of the 3 challengers with the best chance to defeat Murray, seems to have the most ideas, but lacks in the passion shown by Didier and does not have the name recognition of Rossi.

Didier and Akers both shows ties to the loosely knit group known as the TEA Party throughout the state, Didier receiving the well received endorsement of Alaska former governor and vice-presidential candidate, Sarah Palin, while Rossi indicates he can ignore the group and still receive their support in the November general election, leading many conservatives to feel taken for granted.

Both Didier and Akers have held functions of their own in Clark County while Rossi has yet to.

All 3 made appearances at the Republican Resurgence Convention held in Vancouver this past June, Didier leaving suddenly to meet with Mrs. Palin Friday morning in the Tri-Cities area.

Rossi remains far ahead of both Didier and Akers in campaign donation, having raised some $1.4 Million, compared to Didier’s slightly more than $350,000 and Akers’ more than $275,000. Rossi has also spent the least, in part due to his late entry while others were campaigning.

One of these 3 will go on to run against Murray in the general election in November and I can’t honestly say which one I support yet. But, if we are to unseat Murray, as many in the state desire, we must choose who we feel is best suited and support whoever wins the August 17 primary with all we have.

We can expect the Democrats to fight with everything they have to retain Murray as in the US Senate seat.

Shouldn’t we throw everything we have towards ousting her?

    If YOU hate that “SOCIALISM” word so much, then WHY do YOU support policies that promote CORPORATE SOCIALISM?

    The difference between you and me is that I am against ALL SOCIALISM!

    And YOU are for that SPECIAL Socialism that doesn’t include YOU in it!

  4. LOL, Chuckie, thanks for once again, showing your total lack of knowledge and giving yet another liberal/progressive incoherent rambling.

    Everything you whine and bellyache about WAS VOTED FOR BY PATTY MURRAY.

    The bailouts, stimulus that went to the rich banks and corporations and drove unemployment up, restrictive taxes that put small business out of business, you name it.

    How do you think she amassed some $11,000,000 in campaign funds already? John and Jane Q. Public, standing in the unemployment line did not send it to her.

    The main thing you and your fellow morons fail to grasp, is that when you take away from the so called rich, you are taking away private sector jobs as well. Without those private sector jobs feeding revenue to the treasury, there is no taxes being replenished as more and more people end up drawing funds out of the treasury.

    That is why socialism has failed everywhere it has been tried.

    You can cry you don’t believe in socialism, but your words show otherwise, unless you are actually either an anarchist or a minarchist.

    Both also fail for obvious reason.

    But Chuckie, do learn a bit about me before you ASSume so much.

    Shouldn’t we be HOLDING ACCOUNTABLE the ones who got us IN the MESS in the FIRST PLACE?

    You Republicans have been doing one HELL of a DENIAL dance concerning those PESKY FACTS, and I honestly COMMEND you for that, I have NEVER seen such SKILLFUL SQUIRMING in MY LIFE!

    But as the old saying goes, you are entitled to YOUR OWN OPINION,

    It is SHAMEFUL that a group of people can cause SO MUCH DAMAGE to this country and NOT own up to their RESPONSIBILITY for causing it.

    Hear THIS, and hear it GOOD!

    I am NOT going to stand by and let THE LIKES OF YOU further destroy this country, I care TOO MUCH about this country to let THAT happen, so YES LEW, you have ONE HELL of a fight on YOUR HANDS, and THAT FIGHT is coming DIRECTLY FROM ME PAL!

    Let’s take a look at your comments and unlike you, I’ll read with both eyes open.

    Of the 10 wealthiest in Congress, 8 are Democrats.

    Of the top 50, 28, the majority, are Democrats.

    So, you tell me, do you really think “THESE RICH BA$T@RDS actually give a damn about YOUR PERSONAL WELL BEING?

    Don’t you find it odd that after all the cries of poor mouth, increasing deficits, decreasing revenues and the need to strap us with more taxes, all of a sudden Murray is able to send $42,000,000.00 here to continue studying replacing the I-5 bridge, after already spending over $100,000,000 studying it?

    It was in Wednesdays Columbian.

    Not a single piling is paid for, Chuckie, just more “studies.”

    I have been, son. Who prevented President Bush and later Senator McCain from reforming and regulating Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in 2003 and 2005?

    New Agency Proposed to Oversee Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae

    Who was it that forced banks to lend money and issue mortgages to people that had no means to repay, creating the slide downward that we are in today?

    Capitalism didn’t kill the banks – socialism did

    The rest of your rant is irrelevant, but allow me to jog what little brain you have left.

    President Bush came into office with a recession too and then was blind sided by the worst terrorist attack in history. He also got a stimulus through Congress.

    The big difference between Bush’s and Obama’s?

    Bush’s went to the people. Obama’s went to wealthy corporations that ended up laying off millions more of the people.

    Since you hate Trickle Down so much, just who actually practiced it by turning his back on the people and bailing out the wealthy CEO’s and corporations versus who placed money in the common working man’s pocket?

    It is SHAMEFUL that a group of people can cause SO MUCH DAMAGE to this country and NOT own up to their RESPONSIBILITY for causing it.

    Here I agree. But what’s even worse is the number of braindead morons that continue to cover for the Democrats even after shown their socialism is what caused the problems.

    And yes, this is going to be a fight, a big one. People have been waking up to you and the Democrats idiocy as every step they make plunges the country deeper and deeper into despair and ruin.

    You bet this is going to be a fight to keep America, AMERICA!

    As far as, “THAT FIGHT is coming DIRECTLY FROM ME PAL!”, phhffft!

    Just more hot air and bravado from a spoiled little boy. If you really want to fight me, as you say, first go and get some ammunition. So far, you have come in unarmed, except for a little child’s pop-gun.

    The fact that you are critical of Patty Murray JUST BECAUSE she is able to raise MORE money than YOUR candidate is REAL PATHETIC Lew.

    Come on Lew, which is it, are you a capitalist, or NOT?

    Oh I see how it is, if YOUR candidate is successful at THE SYSTEM. then HIP HIP HURRAY, but if a DEMOCRAT DARE be successful at RAISING campaign funds, then SOMETHING is WRONG.

    I’ll tell you what’s wrong Lew, YOU are acting like a SPOILED CHILD!

    And YOUR FACTS are A JOKE, by the way!

    President Clinton left THIS COUNTRY with a SURPLUS, and MASSIVE job opportunities, those are FACTS,,,PERIOD!

    And when George Dubya Dipstick got done we had MASSIVE DEFICIT, and well, the job situation speaks for ITSELF!

    These are FACTS Lew, and to deny THESE BASIC FACTS is to be in denial of REALITY!

    As far as “Socialism”, which is a word that seems to scare the HELL out of YOU, what Socialism are you TALKING ABOUT?

    What SOCIALISM exists NOW, that did not exist BEFORE President Obama took office?

    Oh THATS RIGHT, the answer is ZERO, because YOU REPUBLICANS are SO GOOD at SCARE tactics, but SO BAD on FACTS!

    Who said anything about the wealthy fat cats from Wall Street funding Murray? You all are the ones who claim we are the fat cats, then duck away when it is shown it is your people are the wealthiest, hoarding their wealth while taking others away.

    Oh, Chuckie, but how amusing you are in your juvenile rants. Take a hint, son, we aren’t the ones crying “at a certain point, I think you’ve made enough money.”

    Your stupidity is only equaled by your ignorance.

    President Clinton left THIS COUNTRY with a SURPLUS, and MASSIVE job opportunities, those are FACTS,,,PERIOD!

    BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!! You’ll fall for anything you’re told by the left. Massive job opportunities?

    What Surplus?

    The Myth of the Clinton Surplus

    Where is that federal budget surplus?

    Another point you left-winged twits always seem to omit, Clinton was held in check by a Republican Congress through the majority of his administration. You know, Congress, where spending actually happens?

    You really ought to look into another line, Chuckie, you aren’t very good at this.

    As far as “Socialism”, which is a word that seems to scare the HELL out of YOU, what Socialism are you TALKING ABOUT?

    What SOCIALISM exists NOW, that did not exist BEFORE President Obama took office?

    Oh, government takeover of the housing industry, government take over of the banking industry, government takeover of auto manufacturers, threats of government takeover of the energy producing sector, government mandated health insurance (a very large tax), pushing for government mandates on energy consumption (cap & tax), pushing small businesses out with excessive taxes, the list goes on and on. Pull your head out of your ass and you’d see it.

    OTHERWISE I suggest you SHUT UP!

    And, I suggest you seek a new line of protest, one you might come across looking like you have a slight modicum of intelligence. So far, you look as if your brain took a vacation.

    And, just what good does it do you to post this at 4:36 AM, then come in 5 minutes later with,

    COME ON Lew, just ONE EXAMPLE!

    No, Chuckie, I am not paranoid, realistic as i see massive bills written behind closed doors (from supposedly the most open and transparent government ever) that contain hidden mandates that do not come out until after they are passed.

    You asked or examples and I gave them. Just because you bury your head doesn’t make them lies, son. It just means that you cannot handle them and put up the blinders.

    We aren’t talking about “a few government programs” that even we wish to see continue, but government interference in more aspects of our lives than ever in our history.

  16. Valentine, while Godwin’s law often comes true, the comparison to 1930 Germany, the year itself, not the decade is strikingly similar.

    “Hitler offered something to everyone; work to the unemployed, prosperity to failed business people, profits to industry, expansion to the Army, social harmony and an end of class distinctions to idealistic young students, and restoration of German glory to those in despair. He promised to bring order amid chaos, a feeling of unity to all and the chance to belong. He would make Germany strong again, end payment of war reparations to the Allies, tear up the treaty of Versailles, stamp out corruption, keep down Marxism, and deal harshly with the Jews.”
