Waco cover up Senator Danforth finds hate in the Tea Party GOP

November 29, 2010

Former Senator Danforth has denounced the “new” GOP for hate. Danforth was in charge of the Waco commission that released its report on election night of Bush v. Gore. They found no wrong doing except by the assistant prosecutor who asked for the investigation.

Ron Horiuchi was the FBI’s Japanese gunman who was the only one who shot Whites in cold blood at Ruby Ridge as ordered. The White FBI agents wouldn’t do it at Ruby Ridge. FBI mgmt sent Horiuchi onto Waco and there gun shells were found around his position and some think he fired the first shots. Danforth, of course, found no such thing. But he does find hate in the Tea Party.

“If Dick Lugar, having served five terms in the US Senate and being the most respected person in the Senate and the leading authority on foreign policy, is seriously challenged by anybody in the Republican Party, we have gone so far overboard that we are beyond redemption,” Danforth said, as quoted in the New York Times.

Lugar has found himself at odds with many Republicans over his support for the START nuclear missile treaty with Russia, as well as his support for the DREAM Act, which would create a path to citizenship for illegal immigrant youth who complete an education program and stay out of legal trouble.

“Swiss voters back deportation plan.”

Vanishing American finds a ray of hope where Danforth finds only hat.

    I skimmed the NYT article for clarification, and found this:

    “Now Mr. Lugar’s willingness to buck his party is leading to talk that he will face a primary challenge from a Tea Party candidate when he runs for re-election in 2012. It is a possibility that Mr. Lugar, who said the current environment in Washington was “disappointing” and “without a doubt” the most polarized he had seen since joining the Senate in 1977, understands clearly even as he declines to modify his positions.

    “I’m always optimistic,” he said in an interview in his office on Wednesday, “that good reasoning, good will and proper spirit is going to lead to constructive results even as I describe, as I have, intense polarization that I think is currently there.”

    Even after the midterm rout that will remove many long-serving members from Congress, the idea that Mr. Lugar would be vulnerable to a primary challenge is a chilling notion to many Republicans, a symbol of symbolism gone too far.

    “If Dick Lugar,” said John C. Danforth, a former Republican senator from Missouri, “having served five terms in the U.S. Senate and being the most respected person in the Senate and the leading authority on foreign policy, is seriously challenged by anybody in the Republican Party, we have gone so far overboard that we are beyond redemption.”

    Miles responds:

    Apparently John Danforth is upset anyone would dare run against Dick Lugar in the Republican Primary. What does Danforth think Lugar is? Some sort of appointed Medieval baron over a principality, anointed by the King to serve the duchy of Indiana for all of his damned life?

    This is an electoral democracy, and Senatorial terms are for 6 years, not life. I hope Lugar is defeated.
