Obama’s Republican Cousin May Challenge Kansas Incumbent GOP Senator Pat Roberts

How delicious would it be to have a relative of Obama’s in the Senate helping derail his agenda? It could happen. Goodness knows the GOP needs some fresh blood in the Senate.

Barack Obama’s second cousin once removed, is laying the groundwork for a potential Republican primary challenge against Kansas Sen. Pat Roberts next year.

Milton Wolf has been gauging support, sources told POLITICO, sending an email to GOP activists the last week of August asking them to get in touch if they want more senators like Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and Rand Paul.

Wolf, a 42-year-old practicing radiologist, accused Roberts of raising the debt ceiling, bailing out Wall Street and supporting earmarks. He noted that Roberts said recently that he does not see a way out of using military force in Syria and endorsed former Kansas Democratic Gov. Kathleen Sebelius to be secretary of Health and Human Services.

“If you’ve ever asked yourself what you can do and you’re ready to fight for America … email me,” he wrote in his email. “It’s time for the patriots to save America from our failed political class.”

The president’s great-great-grandfather, Thomas Creekmore McCurry, is Wolf’s great-grandfather. His mother was five years older than Obama’s mother, and he writes on his Website that the two were childhood friends in Wichita.

Wolf’s potential candidacy comes as several Republican senators now face primary challenges, the latest sign that the tea party versus establishment battles are still dividing the GOP. But unlike past years, Republican senators say they won’t be caught off guard: They are pumping big bucks into their war chests and wooing conservative activists and lawmakers in their states.

Roberts is already talking tough but he’s deluding himself to think Wolf wouldn’t be a formidable challenger.

    Trust not what they say. It’s all to easy to say one thing and do something else once the election has been won. Examine their records, and if those records are found wanting, dump them. Keep on doing this until every potential candidate understands that they will be expected to live up to their promises or else be kicked to the curb.

    “You sending The Wolf?”

    “Oh, you feel better?”

    “*&^#, negro, that’s all you had to say!”

    I will support whoever works for Conservatives. Currently our Senators are bowing Barack Obama and Democrats as John McCain and Lindsay Gramham did.
