'But what saith it? The Word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach: That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in your heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.""

Dan Coats Comeback Hits GOP Push Back

Fort Wayne's own Emery McClendon figured prominently in Coats' campaign inspired by the 'out of touch' national RNC, hitting a very visible roadblock. Hoosiers have suddenly, particularly since President Obama has seen fit to surround himself with a wide range of nasty lobbyists whose sole interest in the destruction of our American Republic, lost their taste for Washington's business as usual, no absolute truth perspective on reality.

Dan, you were out of politics...stay that way...go retire in North Carolina like you originally planned...don't sell that property to appease conservative voters who will not vote for you anyway....You could try to appeal to 'WE THE PEOPLE' in a really big reach out but we already have good candidates, Hoosiers with clean slates....America does not need more of the same.

Actually folks, Dan has been in politics as a lobbyist for foreign interests (India) to our government but hey, so is Birch Bayh, Evan's dad. Birch can boast Hugo Chavez and Venezuela as one of his customers...Nice, huh?

Below, is a great article I found on Politico.Com this am....enjoy

The recently announced Senate candidacy of Dan Coats, a prospect warmly embraced by national Republicans, is receiving a decidedly mixed reception back home where the former senator’s absence from Indiana has been noted.

From the moment word spread that Coats was planning a run against Democratic Sen. Evan Bayh, surprised numerous state Republican activists and local leaders greeted the news with something short of enthusiasm.

When Indiana Republican National Committeeman James Bopp, a prominent Coats supporter, sent a late-night e-mail to a string of party officials linking to a news story detailing Coats’s interest in the race, state committee member Barbara Knochel wrote back: “Please excuse my naivete, but why would Coats, who retired once, come back? What am I missing here?”

For some state and local Republicans, there is frustration caused by the perception that the Washington GOP establishment — particularly the National Republican Senatorial Committee, which helped to woo Coats and has played an active and public role in promoting and defending his candidacy — is intruding in Indiana politics. And the populist conservative grass roots in the tea party movement feels it most acutely.

One day after Coats announced his interest in the race, a Huntington, Ind., tea party group circulated an e-mail with the subject line, “NO to RNC/Coats for force feeding us this crap sandwich,” while Emery McClendon, a Tea Party organizer, has distributed an e-mail to activists declaring that the push for a Coats candidacy “is the Republican Party’s way of slapping we the people in the face ...”

A coalition of 10 state-based tea party groups, meanwhile, are set to launch the “Indiana Patriot Coalition,” which will be taking part in an e-mail and phone call campaign directed toward the Indiana Republican Party and the Republican National Committee, asking Washington to stay out of state races.

“We have our own state, we have our own candidates, and we have some darned good candidates,” said Mark Leyva, a tea party organizer who is involved with the effort.

For Indiana Republican Party leaders, who are aware of fierce anti-establishment backlash from grass-roots conservatives in states like Florida and Kentucky over NRSC involvement in contested primaries, the early warning flares from grass-roots conservatives have not gone unnoticed.

After Knochel’s e-mail to Bopp last week, state party officials on the message chain traded e-mails expressing concern over the grass-roots unrest, according to copies of the emails provided to POLITICO.

“They view it as Washington insiders disregarding the ‘voice of the people,’" Pete Miller, a state committee member, wrote in one note.
