    Senator Orrin Hatch and Representative Charles Rangel: Experience Beats Lunacy

    Incumbents Orrin Hatch and Charles Rangel beat primary challengers

    It's a great day for American politics. Experience beats populist bullshit.

    In Utah, Republican Sen. Orrin G. Hatch handily fended off a tea party opponent, while in New York's Harlem, legendary Democratic Rep. Charles B. Rangel emerged from one of the tougher fights of his 42 years in office.

    Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. This is nothing to celebrate.

    Nope, just stating facts. Oh wait let me guess, Wrangle is a moderate? And he didnt cheat on his taxes? So Pelosi was racist for going after him then?

    Levin really stepped into the ring one night on his show and reminded all good conservatives how Orin Hatch has stood for conservatism over many a decade. Mark played clip after clip of Hatch defending Clarence Thomas during the hearings and refusing to buckle to Democrat pressure to railroad Thomas.

    Levin made very convincing arguments that convinced me that Hatch was the man who truly would and could continue to represent Utah.

    And despite getting labelled as a moderate his voting record makes him a solid Conservative.


    Orrin Hatch (R)

    Senate - Utah - Up for re-election in 2012
    Voting history
    Votes with party
    89%

    of 355 votes
    111th Congress
    90%

    of 689 votes


    Orrin Hatch - U.S. Congress Votes Database - The Washington Post

    Have to admit I was really surprised to see how high his numbers were in the conservative voting record.

    I'm only scraping the surface here. But one thing that this race taught me was just because conservatives really want to get rid of incumbents, take a deep breath and don't throw the baby out with the bathwater.

    No... The Voters were just telling everyone that "Social Handout programs" take precedence over "responsibility, and morality". No surprise in NYC.
