      Lugar, a Republican, played a major part in securing the world’s loose nuclear material so that it does not fall into the hands of terrorists to use against the US in a dirty bomb (or worse).

      His downfall was trying to do something good for the US, and the Tea Party will have none of that.

  • How Do You Feel About Obama Signing Our Rights Away Via International Treaties? http://thehill.com/opinion/columnists/dick-morris/209283-obamas-assault-on-america

    ” International Criminal Court — Clinton has reversed George W. Bush’s policy and entered into negotiations over U.S. participation in the court.”

    “The Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) has been signed, and the Obama administration — with the aid of RINO Sen. Richard Lugar (Ind.) — will push for its ratification as soon as Lugar’s primary in Indiana is over this year. LOST requires that the United States pay an international body half of its royalties from offshore drilling. The body would then distribute the funds as it sees fit to whichever nations it chooses. The United States would only have one vote out of 160 regarding where the money goes. LOST will also oblige us to hand over our offshore drilling technology to any nation that wants it … for free.”

    “Small-arms control — Clinton is about to negotiate on a global ban on export of small arms. It would only apply to private citizens but, of course, most small-arms deals come not from individuals or private firms but from governments, specifically those of the United States, Russia, China and Israel.”

    They they would shut down the gun manufacturers in this country to get rid of gun ownership no doubt.

    “• Outer Space Code of Conduct — Under the guise of stopping debris from accumulating in outer space, the European Union has enlisted Clinton in negotiations over a code of conduct. The code would prohibit activities that are likely to generate debris in outer space — space littering. The code might inhibit or prohibit the United States from deploying anti-missile missiles on platforms in space, denying us the key weapon we need to counter Iranian, Chinese and North Korean missile threats.”
    If this isn’t what he wants, why did he sign them?

      You belong in the kitchen, and you should make me a sandwich. You have no right to use contraception either.

      Us Republicans haven’t declared a war on women – this is a fake controversy created by Democrats during an election year.

    Will The Lugar – Mourdock Primary Battle Bring Attention To May 8 Romney Vs. Santorum INDIANA Primary? 10 points for best information and prediction as far as media / ad campaigning over next 28 days or so — here’s POLITICO angle (www.politico.com/ column)

    Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney are essentially tied in Indiana’s Republican presidential primary, according to a poll commissioned by the Indiana political site Howey Politics Indiana.

    The survey — taken by the bipartisan polling team of Fred Yang and Christine Matthews, and largely focused on the state’s Senate race — shows Santorum with 27 percent support to Romney’s 26 percent support. Both Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich clocked in at 6 percent. [35 percent undecided or uncertain]

    The Indiana primary is scheduled for May 8, and would be an important battleground if the Santorum-Romney fight lasts past the Northeastern primary date of April 24.

    The main headline from the poll is that Sen. Dick Lugar is in serious danger of losing his own primary fight, polling at only 42 percent against state Treasurer Richard Mourdock. The man who could potentially sway either the presidential or Senate primary: Mitch Daniels, who has an 86 percent approval rating among Republicans.

    thanks for polite postings and interesting observations

      Your question has only a shelf-life of 7 days — the Primary is a month away

      Lugar is definitely a walking “Bull’s Eye Target” — he is sort of a Romney type (1% wealthiest — not even resident of Indiana any more)

      Mourdock may get endorsement by Mitch Daniels — that would be quite a brawl if GOP Indiana types fight it out in a public, open air kind of way
