    Lugar Tells Tea Party to ‘Get Real’

    Sen. Dick Lugar (R., Ind.) told Indiana station WANE-TV that he fully intends to run again for the Senate in 2012 and that he plans to strike back at the tea partiers calling for a different GOP candidate.

    Talking about how some tea partiers had criticized his support of President Obama’s START treaty, Lugar said, “I’ve got to say ‘Get real.’ I hear tea party or other people talking about they were against START. I said ‘Well, now, hang on here.’ If you want to get into START, let’s talk about it, but realistically as Americans, not as some Republican renegade. [I’m] trying to take warheads of Russia [out of circulation] so they won’t hit Indiana.”

    He also defended his votes to confirm Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor. “Otherwise we polarize the Supreme Court business to a point that conservative justices offered by a conservative Republican president — who’ll be elected at some point — are going to have trouble,” Lugar argued.

    Lugar's the sort of Republican in need of a boot, as in boot out of office.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    It's going to take some time to harvest all these pathetic dried out husks who have been entrenched in the system for decades. Lugar, McCain, Graham, etc. But perserverance is our call.

    I Republicans don't wake up to the reality of Conservatives they risk finding a Party that has ideas views and a moral compass that stems from the Founding Fathers ideals of what America should.

    The more of the old guard who take the Lugar side the more likely they are to find we have moved on without them completely, and it's about damn time.
