DeMint sets sights on four Dems in 2012

South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint (R) is turning his attention to 2012 and using the vote this week on an earmark moratorium to pick his Democratic targets.

DeMint sent an email to the supporters of his Senate Conservatives Fund early Wednesday highlighting four Democrats who voted against the earmark ban, are up for re-election in 2012 and sit in states that John McCain (R) carried in 2008: Sens. Jon Tester (Mont.), Ben Nelson (Neb.), Kent Conrad (N.D.) and Joe Manchin (W.Va.).

    Demint should turn his attention from kingmaker to the real problems of the country which are disproportionatly shared by his home state. South Carolina is wallowing in unemployment, crime and povert.

    We’re going after ALL of these traitors in 2012, not just the Dems!

    Plus, the following GOP senators betrayed Americans by voting with Dems FOR Senate Bill 510, giving control of the ENTIRE food supply to Homeland Security, and outlawing individuals growing their own vegs and fruit, selling them, or giving them away. The FDA is already raiding raw milk dairies and organic farms with guns drawn.

    Great News!

    We need all the help we can get here in Big Sky Country getting rid of Tester, who as far as I’m concerned didn’t really win the vote…we have the likes of Ted Turner, Tom Brokaw, elite leftists from the east coast, greenie weenies that have invaded this state for years…they make me sick…all of them, oh yeah, the Union Big Wigs come here and play it big too.

    This made my day reading what DeMint has planned, with the other dems as well.

    Hmmmm but not one word for his fellow GOP members who voted against it too and are taking earmarks home.
    Hubris with a side of hypocrisy, it’s whats for dinner in the GOP.

      Are you saying that the tea party and DeMint will only go after democrats in 2012? That doesn’t match up with what we just saw in the recent election cycle. You can be damn sure that those Repubs who voted against the earmark ban will be hunted down too. This is just the first four targets that he is pointing out. Be patient.
