Nelson, Casey should be thrown out -- What to do about so-called "Pro-Life" Democrats.
12/19/09 | malkee

Posted on 12/19/2009 2:15:41 PM PST by malkee

Just wondering if any of you have any ideas about what to do with Casey and Nelson other than attempting to vote them out. This healthcare vote is more than a sell-out on their supposed anti-abortion stance. One thing I would REALLY like to see is some pro-life female candidates running against them!


TOPICS: Government
KEYWORDS: 111th; abortion; benedictarnoldnelson; benedictnelson; bennelson; benodictarnoldnelson; benodictnelson; bobcasey; healthcare; nelson; prolifedems
Any more (realistic) ideas?

It’s a sad day. We could have avoided this if Al Franken hadn’t stolen the Minn. Senate election. Ditto if the MSM had not whipped up a frenzy about George Allen saying “macaca”. And Jon Tester won his Senate election in Montana by a handful of votes in ‘06.

I saw on another thread that lawsuits could happen with Obamacare. They are saying that some aspects of the bill are unconstitutional, and that they want to challenge in court. Bring it on, if it comes to that. Liberal judges will uphold Obamacare, while conservative ones will rule against it. So that will be a crapshoot in the federal courts.

First, there are NO pro-life Democrats. All of them just claim to be in order to get their share of bribe money. Nebraska and Arkansas voters will take care of their whores.

If they call themselves a Democrat, they are not pro-life. Period. They need to be voted out of office. Period. Do not listen to their lies and obfuscation.

Two Rats with absolutely no principals. But in reality, all the Democrats have no respect for anything other than their Marxist party.

I hope the Catholic Church takes a position with Casey who is now promoting abortion.

In regards to the twerp Nelson, I can’t wait to see how long he’ll be able to hide from his Conservative constituents in Nebraska.

They think that the public forums they attended were rough before?

Somehow, the folks in Nebraska must force Ben to resign ASAP.

Hire some private dectectives, dig up some dirt. Do like the Dems and Hilary do.

Get in the game. Strike a blow for freedom.

When a man decides to sell his soul to the Devil, there isnt much we mortals can do about it.

Nelson is a sellout , a Judas Escariot.

A man with no principles except coin of the realm.

Lil’ Casey has always been more ‘flexible’ on the abortion issue than his father was. PA voters sometimes have trouble distinguishing between the son & the late-father.

The hardest part is having to watch that slut Pelosi and the village idiot Reid stand beside the Anti-Christ Obama touting the history of the moment and that they did this wonderful thing for America. Once this goes down, we are all screwed. Forget America having any future worth aspiring to. The Dems will rig every upcoming election and morph the constitution into something so vile none of us will recognize it. Hope all you morons that voted for this Kenyan a**hole are happy, but then I am sure you are because you chose this di*khead. Hoax and chains for sure.

If you have followed the Democrats platform over the years, you would realize there are no pro-life democrats.

There are only democrats loyal to the party leadership.

That's why I can make a good argument for a straight ticket vote when I go to the polls.

Casey’s hometown (Scranton) newspaper has an article today pondering the possibility of a President Casey in 2016. The paper consistently downplays his pro choice voting record.

Good luck on tossing Casey. He’s Senator-for-Life in PA just like Byrd and Rockefeller in WV, only he’s young enough to be there 50 more yrs. He’s the perfect representative of the people of PA - a Socialist, (faux) pro-lifer, and dumber than a rock, just like the people who elected him.

Well, can’t totally disagree with you, and I live here. There are some real pro-lifers, however. And I’m not so sure he’ll be here for life. He’s a lightweight.

Yes, PA has a lot of serious pro-lifers. Unfortunately, many are not bright enough to distinguish the real deal from a phony like Casey. W PA is filled with Socialist pro-lifers, or as my husband calls them - “Born Democrats.”

Well, I got a response from Casey to the email I penned today.

"Thank you for your email. Your message has been received by my office.

Sincerely, Senator Robert P. Casey, Jr.


I asked him how he could call himself a man. Guess he didn't like what I had to say.

I sent Casey a little nastygram today, and got the same response. It’s an automatic reply. In a few months, you will get a real response from Casey, but it will be a BS form letter telling you how great Obamacare is for Pennsylvania and what a great senator we have.

Yeah, I’ve gotten those, too. I was just a little surprised with the speed of this response.

I am inclined to agree with you that there are NO prolife Dems. It is no secret that the Democrats put abortion as part of their official platform about thirty years ago. Anyone who goes into Democrat politics has to know this. They know that Planned Parenthood and NARAL are part of the Democrat coalition as well as Emily’s List and many pro-abortion rich liberals.

These so-called pro-life Democrats have to be in on the scheme. They know that there are not that many abortion related votes. On the rare occasions when an abortion related bill does come up, they will just wait it out till the Dems get enough votes from the liberal safe districts and the turncoat liberal Republicans.

I've called Casey's office, but I can't remember if I've ever written or sent an e-mail. I know I've been on Specter's "round file" list for some time. He used to send me the pre-printed "Thank You" message and always the answer had nothing to do with the subject I had written to him about. Around 2000, he stopped responding even with that. Now I just call, mostly the local office, sometimes, D.C.

I asked him how he could call himself a man. Guess he didn't like what I had to say.

You've probably earned yourself a spot on Casey's "round file" list with that. LOL

I've noticed these people no longer make any pretense of working for us. I suspect because the salary the taxpayer pays them is only a tiny portion of their overall earnings.

The is pro life democrats. But they are “Pro My Politcal Life” who will say they are pro life to get elected but once in office, they forget what they promised. The funny thing is that when they have to run again, they do the same thing and the morons keep falling for it.
Our government is a joke. They dont listen to what we want. They dont care about the laws. They do whatever they please and they keep getting away with it.
