Arrogant and Out Of Touch, Lugar Plans To Run For Seventh Term
Thirty-six years in the U.S. Senate is not enough for Sen. Richard Lugar (R-IN), who apparently believes the seat he has held since 1977 is his for life. Lugar, who will be 80 in 2012, announced today he will soon announce plans to seek an unprecedented seventh term. Lugar has demonstrated repeatedly he could give a damn less what average Hoosiers think about any host of issues. He refuses to meet with every day Hoosiers to discuss any issues before Congress. Instead, he spends most of the time when Congress is not in session touring the world, pretending that he knows more about what's best for US foreign policy than anybody else. He traveled abroad with Barack Hussein Obama soon after he was elected to the Senate, going out of his way to boost his foreign policy credentials and for all practical purposes endorsed him for president in 2008, the most unqualified person ever to be elected president. People need to understand that Lugar is a part of a movement to ditch American sovereignty in favor of the New World Order. He answers to people other than Hoosier voters and can no longer be trusted to represent us in Washington. Republicans and conservatives in Indiana need to let it be known that his candidacy for re-election will not be welcomed and he will be challenged in the primary. We can't afford six more years of his out-of-touch arrogance.
