Senator Richard Lugar faces a tough primary fight in Indiana today against State Treasurer Richard Mourdock. Mourdock is backed by the Tea Party while Lugar remains Barack Obama′s favorite Republican senator, after John McCain. Conservatives should have a good day giving the RINO Lugar the boot and passing North Carolina Amendment One, banning sane-sex marriage Constitutionally. Naturally, the Media is whining about NC Amendment 1 and the loss of Dick Lugar from the Senate. But I say good riddance to he who supports Obama′s latest folly, the Laws of the Seas Treaty, or LOST. The treaty would force the United States to pay 50% of the oil royalties from off-shore drilling within 200 miles of the coast to some United Nations oversight group. The treaty would also give that group a good deal of authority over the U.S. Constitution, which is completely unacceptable.
So why does Richard Lugar play this game of compromise? Why is he willing to sell the nation out? Just look at his latest attack ads against Mourdock. Lugar borrows from the Democrat playbook of having an elderly grandma type talk about how Mourdock supports the Paul Ryan budget which would kill off all senior citizens. The funny thing is, Lugar claimed to support the Ryan budget, even voting in favor of last year′s version, which was far more austere than the 2012 version.
Dick Lugar is the sort of politician whom when I see him on TV, I automatically change channels, otherwise I would puke! He is just a wretched, vile man. A perfect example for the need for federal term limits. He claims that he is an expert in foreign policy matters which would be sorely missed if he loses his reelection bid. Given the state of our foreign policy these days under Barack Hussein Obama, I cannot image things getting any worse should Lugar get another six years.
So Richard Lugar and his primary fight in Indian against Richard Mourdock is just one of the two major election stories being watched closely today. The other is the fate of North Carolina Amendment One to ban all same-sex marriages. Both Mourdock, who has Tea Party support, and NC Amendment 1 are expected to win tonight. For Dick Lugar, today may be the beginning of the end of his political career. His support of Barack Obama and items like the Law of the Sea Treaty, LOST, may be a reason for his defeat. Or maybe the folks in Indiana have just had enough of Richard Lugar, who does not even own a house in the state! Maybe he can move in with fellow RINO and ex-senator, Rick Santorum, and they can write more endorsements for fellow RINO Mitt Romney in the middle of the night?
