    Hannity Endorses Orrin Hatch

    Hannity Endorses Orrin Hatch

    I find this interesting, considering that Hatch is facing a likely challenge from Jason Chaffetz, who is gaining in the polls.

    I like Hatch, although I’ll readily admit I have followed him mostly as relates to judicial appointments, where he fought the good fight on Clarence Thomas, John Roberts and Samuel Alito, among others.  Some of those accomplishments are listed in the audio below starting at 6:45.

    Here is the audio of Mark Levin’s endorsement of Hatch (starting at 8:15).

    Is Hatch the exception to what is the recent rule that long-serving incumbents need to be challenged?

    Update: I had forgotten I previously posted about Hatch being out front in opposing the Obamacare mandate.

    In the Senate, he puts comity ahead of conservatism. Remember his position on Lisa Murkowski and her spot on the Senate Energy committee?

    Hatch has been in Washington long enough. Time for someone more in sync with Utah’s conservative values.

    I’m disappointed in Hannity and Levin.

    …that said. Lugar is the ultimate prize in 2012.

      And in ’14 its Graham.

      Try to imagine a scenario wherein republicans and conservatives aren’t better off without him in the Senate…I know, you almost have to get into sci-fi territory. I’d vote for Alvin Greene a hundred times over before I’d pull the lever for that smarmy little weasel.

    Hatch suffers from “Potomac Fever.” The longer people dwell in the flood plains of the Potomac River the more big-spending and statist they become.

    Hatch will some veer back onto the correct side of issues but it is becoming increasingly rare.

    He needs to retire…

    Hatch has been trying to kiss the Tea Party’s collective backside ever since we gave Bob Bennett a pink slip. He hasn’t even tried to hide it. He really hasn’t changed, though; as soon as the heat is off, he’ll go right back to being the man who used to be Ted Kennedy’s BFF. He’s needed to go for years, and a couple of years of blowing in the Tea Party breeze doesn’t change that.
