Republican Senator Hatch Faces Primary Challenge

Six term Utah Republican Senator Orrin Hatch is facing a primary challenge in his bid for a 7th, six year term from State Senator Dan Liljenquist.  Though Hatch came very close to getting the 60% of the vote needed to avoid a primary challenge, he fell just short, which means in June, Hatch will have to go through the primary process.  Hatch has been in the US Senate for 36 years.   Since this Blogger supports Congressional Term Limits, I believe it is time for Hatch to go. 

Orrin Hatch will probably win reelection because establishment Republicans will come to his aid with money to beat his challenger.   That is just how the game is played, which is the reason we need term limits.   Though Orrin Hatch is a Conservative of sorts, he has also voted to steal money from Social Security, over the years, which has been happening since 1965, to fund wasteful government spending.   Hatch has been there reaching across the aisle for years allowing Socialist creep.  Hatch is a go along to get along kind of guy.  And, Orrin Hatch has failed to stop the nomination of Socialist Supreme Court and other Federal judges. 

There is no doubt that Republican Orrin Hatch is better than any Socialist alternative; but as we face the bankruptcy of the United States, business as usual is not going to get our nation back on the right track.   Orrin Hatch is business as usual and has been so for 36 years.   So, concerned Conservatives should send money to State Senator Dan Liljenquist to help unseat Orrin Hatch.   Who ever wins the Republican primary in Utah, will win the general election as well because Utah is a very Red state. 

It is time for Senator Orrin Hatch to retire and write his biography.   We need new Conservative blood in Washington DC committed to balancing our budget and an end to deficit spending.   Though Orrin Hatch talks that talk, he often has not walked that talk voting to increase our National Debt Ceiling many times.  

We have to take back our country in 2012 and 2014 by sweeping Socialists at all levels of government, including President Obama out of office.   At the same time, we need new Conservative blood in office to support the Tea Party Members elected in 2010.   We can do it.   We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.   Senator Orrin Hatch has made what ever impact on our nation he could make in 36 years.  We don't need politicians for life.  It is now time for Hatch to step aside in the name of citizen politicians as was intended by our Founding Fathers.
