    When politicians get too big for the people they represent and allow inept staff to deal their constituents, then it suggests they have become just another one of the co-opted, elected elite who are in it for themselves – and this goes for both parties!

    Cmon big man Pearce…we’re still waiting. Since Heinrich is such a chump in your opinion and you possess such wisdom and leadership, you are going to run for Senate, arent you? Whats a matter Pearce, dont think you can beat the young liberal Martin Heinrich? Not willing to get out of your right wing comfort zone to bless all New Mexicans with your great American leadership values? Since we know you can beat Heather, are you afraid of pretty boy one term legislator John Sanchez?

    Put up or shut up Pearce. Either back your sanctimonious rhetoric up and run for Senate, or admit you are a scared career politician chump who’s values really dont fit our whole state (since you it would show you donnt think they would agree, i.e vote, for you).

    Still waiting on the career politician Pearce to show us how chicken he is ….

    He he. “We need to stop thinking party line and thing about decreasing the debt the Democrats have cost us.”. Think about was said right there… Very consistent:)

    I forgot to mention that John Sanchez should also stay where he is. He can do more for the state and the people of New Mexico right where he is.

    Before you all start crowing about Heinrich in the race, maybe you should look at his voting record. He has shown to be a Pelosi, Reid yes man for 97% of his voting record. Pelosi and Reid were the ones that took us into the huge spending arena. Is this what the people want? Is this in the best interest of the people of New Mexico and the United States?

    Following the Progressive Democrats into a pit of spending our way out of debt is like cutting our throats. If we are intent on committing suicide, there are much more efficient and rapid ways of doing it and a lot less painful.

    Hopefully Pearce will stay where he can do the most good and not bite at the apple before him. If he decides to give up his position in Congress, he would be committing political suicide and would never be elected again to any post. The people came awake in the 2010, thanks much to the Tea Party drive. I hope they will do the same this election. We have seen the results of a Democrat dominated House and Senate in this state and this country, with rampant spending and mistakes, not to mention the large number of people in the administration brought up on charges for crimes against the people.

    If we go back to the old way of doing business, we are doomed and we will deserve it. At the present time our hope lies in Heather Wilson, Greg Sowards, or possibly Janice Arnold Jones, if she decides to run. We need to stop thinking party line and thing about decreasing the debt the Democrats have cost us.

    gm:

    I asked you this once before (almost verbatim), but which of your fellow citizens are you self-righteously deriding as “wacko city”?

  7. gm says:

    problem for Rs is the big majority–20k votes– a Dem will get in wacko city…….very difficult to offset such a majority in the rest of the state where there is more balance….

    Great news for Republicans indeed, stever. But it’s unbelievably good news for all New Mexicans because it hopefully means lefty Heinrich won’t be doing the bidding of the radical left special interests – and ignoring the mainstream that makes up NM – in Congress anymore!

    Of course if John Sanchez. Is the GOP nominee then we are all screwed.

    Everyone talks about the bad state of the economy, but no one addresses the issue of money spent for unending wars for empire. Both Lujan and Heinrich voted in favor of Obama’s Afghanistan war supplemental last summer. The only jobs young people can consistently count on is a job in the military. An economy devoted to war is like a forest fire. It will rage until all the fuel is exhausted.
