I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Dick Lugar (from my home state of Indiana!) is a great senator. If the GOP had more like him, we would all be better off.

you mean the debt Bush left us? And you think conservatives will get control of it?

Don't hold your breath.

debt free but out on the street because they couldn't find a job and a republican/tea party controlled GOV wouldn't help them.

They face them when they ring the doorbell and ask to move in, because the tea party just pulled the plug on Social Security.

Good on him. The TP are paper tigers. I applaud his effort to fight back.

Lugar tells it like it is about the tea baggers so of course, they want to try and take his seat.  Lugar is a moderate Repub that isn't afraid to vote for something just because Obama is for it.  The tea baggers are just against anything and everything that Obama is for and have no intelligence for governing.
 
That's no way to run a country.  If the tea baggers were so upset about big government and excess spending, where were they when Bush was in the White House and the Repubs were in the majority in the Congress?  Oh silly me,  Bush was a Republican.  They don't mind big government and big spending when it is the Repubs doing it.

Exactly ! Where were the teabuggers while Bush ran up the biggest deficit in the history of this country while he was president? He spent taxpayer money like a drunken sailor...yet not a peep from conservatives.

"Where were the teabuggers while Bush ran up the biggest deficit in the history of this country while he was president?"

Insisting that criticizing the sacred Government "in a time of [manufactured] war" amounted to treason.

It is sad when you know that someone is committing political suicide by doing the right thing. But any state that would send Dan Burton and Mike Pence to the House is not going to tolerate someone who is thoughtful. I wish him well.

It takes courage 2 stand up to the tea party if your a politician.....this guy is awesome. He's definitely got a re election fight on his hands though!

Dick Lugar is a reasonable honorable man, a respected Senator, a voice of moderation and someone who is respected on both sides of the aisle. I don't agree with many of his positions but he's at least thoughtful, well spoken and educated. He's also unlikely to win the GOP primary in his state.

Al,
 
It is sad that he might not win the GOP primary because some tea bagger runs against him.  Lugar knows how to govern.  The tea baggers don't.

Luger should throw in the towel.He cant beat this irrational goup of fear mongers with rationality.The tea party has become a blind political party demanding absolute fealty before it has really ever had the reins of power.Give them more rope.

I think they will vote him out in a primary. You have to remember who votes in primaries: the activists. And if Indiana has closed primaries then chances are he has no hope making it through a primary.
02:31 AM on 01/27/2011
Yes and no - he is very well respected in Indiana.
