Let’s face it: Seven-term incumbent Hatch embodies everything that’s wrong with the GOP brand. He’s a mascot for the Big Government Republican parade and masquerade of career politicians who stand for nothing and roll over for everything.

In addition to supporting Holder and now Lynch, Hatch embraced tax-cheat Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner and the TARP bailout, lavished praise on Joe Biden’s manhood, and spoke kindly of Obamacare implementer Kathleen Sebelius upon her departure.

In case you’d forgotten, Hatch co-sponsored the $6 billion national service boondoggle and dedicated it to his good friend Teddy Kennedy, with whom he also joined hands to create the ever-expanding SCHIP entitlement. That program is now an $8-billion-a-year entitlement and growing.

At a time when Obama’s executive-amnesty measures are wreaking havoc on the border, public schools, public safety, and the American workforce, don’t forget: Hatch was an original sponsor of the open-borders DREAM Act illegal-alien student bailout and voted to fully fund the Obama amnesty during the lame-duck session.
