    ...A defiant McDaniel offered no explicit concession when he spoke to his supporters in Hattiesburg, but instead complained of "dozens of irregularities" that he implied were due to Cochran courting Democrats and independents.

    "We are not prone to surrender, we Mississippians," McDaniel told his backers. "Before this race is over we have to be absolutely certain the Republican primary was won by Republican voters."

    So RINO cochran went over the democratic neighborhoods and claimed McDaniel would cut food stamps. So he convinced them to vote in the GOP primary.

    The establishment would have lost otherwise.

    Yes, that's pretty much the way I'm reading it as well. Just goes to show that most Tea Party candidates are not ready for prime time. It's too bad.

    You say this about a man who would have won the Republican primary by a landslide in a Republican/Red state?

    Maybe you should stick to baseball, ITL. It's becoming obvious politics and finance are not your forté.

    Uh what? How do you take that away from that?

    Cochran playing dirty pool and showing exactly why he and others are called a RINO does not mean Tea Party candidates are not ready fro prime time.

    McDaniel would have slaughtered him had he not gone to liberal dems.

    Yes, proves my point quite nicely. McDaniel's election campaign didn't know how to counteract a veteran politician's strategy. Not ready for prime time, indeed.

    They've lost just about every election they've run since 2010. Besides the governor's primary in Virginia recently, what else have they won?

    Some people should observe what happens and adjust their thinking to the facts rather than maintain their thinking and try to make the facts fit.

    Uh no it doesn't. When so called conservatives have to go to liberal dems to overcome the coming landslide then they have lost. Bringing in Dems to beat the oponent is not a legitimate strategy and it is underhanded. He did not win on conservative issues. He won by scaremongering liberals.

    HE WON. That is every politician's goal. Was it a surprise to McDaniel's campaign that Mississippi has an open primary system? Was it a secret that Cochran was pursuing this strategy? What's McDaniel doing today? Disputing the election results. Sheesh...Some people should observe what happens and adjust their thinking to the facts rather than maintain their thinking and try to make the facts fit.

    And for the record, I would have voted for McDaniel, so you guys can withhold your "typical liberal response" and other nonsense I figure you're ready to post about me.

    LIberal or not you do not get it. You stated McDaniel was not ready for prime time because he was not willing to compromise in order to win. I was addressing your idiotic statement. I was not trying to address whether he won or not. Cochran won by compromising principles. If that means being ready for prime time to you then that only shows how Obama got elected.

    Yep. Meant to say "otherwise would have won ... "

    Cochran's use of the media to "unofficially invite" Democrats to cross party lines will likely lead to his own defeat in November. He doesn't honestly think those liberal idiots are going to continue to support an obviously weakened candidate does he?

    Naturally, you can show where I said that. C'mon, post it. Quote me: "McDaniel was not ready to compromise, that's why he lost." :BangHead:

    NO of course not. You are just ignoring the fact that you responded to what I said and even agreed with it and then went on to assert that is the way to win elections.

    You're making things up in your head.

    I never suggested that McDaniel compromise to win the election, so stop putting words in my mouth. There are a number of different ways he could have counteracted Cochran's crossover strategy without compromising. I mentioned no strategy. I only said he was not ready to run a winning campaign. Whatever he did, he failed. He lost. The Tea Party are rookies at the election game. That is a fact.

    Republicans aren't going out of their way to vote for Cochran, especially after what he did. The senate will not be won like this, will it ?


    Cochran is a dirtbag.

    Bub, ignoring the compromise of Cochran and focusing on the win in order to claim the Tea Party are rookies says allwe need to know.
