Cochran Republicans, representing the establishment, call themselves conservatives but are nothing of the sort. It is a bit harder to pin down their ideological beliefs because they really don’t seem to have any, flirting as they did with Democrats in the June 24 runoff. Perhaps if Mr. Cochran had debated Senator McDaniel, rather than run after liberal votes, we might know more about what his real views are but instead he stayed scarce. That, though, was the plan. To be fair, if I had his voting record I would not want to showcase it in front of the whole state either.
So how can we define a Cochran Republican? They are the opposite of McDaniel Republicans. In short, they capitulate to the notion of Big Government
Read the whole thing here...but this paragraph is key...
It’s McDaniel Republicans who are standing against Common Core; Cochran Republicans support it. It’s McDaniel Republicans who are fighting to defend the border and against amnesty; Cochran Republicans seek open borders and cheap labor. It’s McDaniel Republicans who are seeking to audit the Fed and save the dollar; Cochran Republicans recoil at the notion. It’s McDaniel Republicans who seek to end the IRS and it’s abuses; Cochran Republicans like it just the way it is. It’s McDaniel Republicans who want to restrain the growing powers of the president; Cochran Republicans want a strong, unaccountable executive, at least when a Republican is in office. The list could go on ad infinitum.
