  •  I think Senator Mike Lee was being a dick (0+ / 0-)

    This is enough grounds for him to be defeated for re-election.  After all, Robert Bennett was never considered to be a divisive U.S. Senator but got defeated in the Republican primaries in 2010 for not standing ground effectively enough for Tea Party needs.

    •  Do you seriously believe Lee can be defeated? (0+ / 0-)

        But evidence like this is something the Utah Democratic Party, probably the most unfriendly to progressives, could pick up.

        Mike Lee is a Tea Party Republican so at best, the Democrats in Utah would nominate a moderate who could do better than Senator Lee.  If that can happen, of course Lee can be defeated.

        I mean, his re-election isn't until 2016 so we've got time.  I mean, all we need is a fighting Democrat, not a wimpy Democrat.  As long as this Democrat runs in 2016 and calls Mike Lee out on his B.S. (including his votes), there may be a real race to be had.
