Congratuations to the Winners

Congratulations to John Boozman, Mark Darr, Rick Crawford, and all of the other candidates who were able to win last night.

As has been the case in recent years, the men I supported did not win the election. I am used to that. It seems I have been lied to about some polling data, given the business I am in I don't know why I should be surprised. I am sure that other Christians joined me in praying for the election outcomes yesterday. When you do that, you have to accept what happens. Congratulations again to the winners.

I dont think you were lied to by polling data - it's just the nature of polls. They're fun to look at, but they aren't the scoreboard.

Arkansas republicans amaze me....
With anti-incumbent,anti-Washington fever sweeping the entire nation, what do we do??
Do we send our 10 year incumbent, big government, spentthrift congressman packing?? NO, we offer him a promotion!
I guess we deserve what we get.

The 500lb gorilla in the room won't be ignored for much longer. Film at 11.

Get ready for politics as usual in DC with either of the the go along get along party puppets.

The reality is though, it is not their fault or DC's fault or the AR GOP's fault;

it is our fault that we the people did not do enough or work smart enough to ensure a fiscal conservative proven on-the-field-leader was promoted to the next step of the process.

The typical primary voter in Arkansas is still very uninformed and does not yet have the will to get informed to the point where they really want to know the truth so that they are willing to fight to restore our constitutional liberties for us and our posterity.

Having a lot of information and being upset about the state of the state or country is not enough to make a change.

It takes hard work and direction from folks who have done it.

Folks that have on/in the field experience not from folks who have been sitting in the stands and know all the cheers(I for the constitution, I am a conservative, blah blah blah).

They may be skilled cheerleaders but they have never had the pads on and got it done on the field.


The People could not or would not distinguish the fact that some are skilled cheerleaders and a very few can actually take the field and very skillfully matriculate a conservative cause or movement down the field to victory.

Cheerleaders are not built or equipped the same way as game participants.

Every candidate in the senate race was a campaigning on conservative rhetoric.

Some are pretenders skillfully obfuscating to the uninformed about who they really are.


Some are not pretenders but have only cheerleading experience hoping to convince the electorate they can put on the pads and lead the team to victory.

The voter, if we are going to take the county, township, schools, city, state, and country back, we need to continue to get the right information and the right strategies and tactics to win the war we are in here.

It is a war and we must fight in all venues if we are to have a chance at not loosing what so many have fought for to secure the every shrinking liberties we do still enjoy.

Perhaps they were informed, RTB. Maybe the voters felt like they would rather choose known, albeit slightly flawed, quantities who they have observed over their times in office rather than the other "options" they had available.

If Womack wins as expected, he will not be an incumbent in the Congress, so the nationwide trend was held there. In the US Senate race, please- what other serious options were available there? None, really.

If you want to get angry, don't get angry at the voters. Get angry at a party that ensures this outcome year after year.

I do believe you're beginning to acknowledge the 500lb gorilla, if my guess is correct as to what it is.

9:03 Anon,

Not angry, The party will attempt to maintain the status quo and will successfully do so unless the voter is better informed and an active participant in the process.

The attempted obfuscation by party establishment / insiders / big gov't GOPers at the end of the cycle is even more prima facie that they do not want you the voter to know how the Big Gov't GOPers vote.

They want you to buy the flim flam campaign rhetoric they know how to sell.

Does this finally put to bed the idea that Jim Holt can be elected statewide? Do you finally understand that he is a small regional candidate? I am guess you will not accept that, but why not ask?

Newsflash-- this was a primary, not the general. The polls showed that EVERY Republican could beat Lincoln statewide, and that was probably true. But the naysayers here were pimping Baker as the only one who could pull it off. Say, how did Bert do, anyway? Oh yeah, a distant third. lol!

Why not be angry at the voters?

The voters whine about how they rank Congress on par with pond scum and foot fungus, yet they consistently vote for those same bits of detritus. Boozman?

He only found a spine after he was challenged in this primary, and he is such a weak reed to hang hopes upon. He is a sock puppet, nothing more, and we just put another good ole boy back in DC who will NOT listen, nor care, about the people of Arkansas.

Shame of it, is that there are other states that did what we should have done.

It is shameful.
