As the Rinos Bring DADT to the US, Who Would Not Rather Have O'Donnell voting than any of the politicians we're told have "gravitas"? I know I would.
I'd rather have Miller than Murkowski, anyone other than Collins and Snow; and my very own Voinovich hasn't met an opportunity to betray conservatism that he hasn't embraced. Portman, who is replacing him, would not vote this way.
This really isn't about O'Donnell. It's about the manipulation of conservatives by those who say that we must vote for "moderates" if we hope to get even a small piece of the pie. Did anyone seriously think that nude-photo Scott Brown would be a boon to conservatism? It was obvious from the first moment that one would be foolhardy to lean on that man for support.
I saw what he represented, and I didn't want any of that pie at all.
As a result of betrayal by Rinos, we have now allowed our military to travel down an unnatural course. We have injured America's war-fighting ability. It might be apparent sooner, or it might be apparent later. But, it will be apparent eventually.
"Oh to grace how great a debtor daily I'm constrained to be."
I like “Mike”, but he does seem overwhelmed by the liberals and Obama a lot of times...I keep waiting for him to lash out at their foolishness sometimes, but nothing! :-(
Cornyn, Romney, Castle, Rove, Rogich are DNC or RINO
and certainly saboteurs.
Republican for Reid costing the GOP ... the Senate.
So, will someone explain HOW support of Harry Reid
and Castle and Romney make anyone a Republican?
That sentence is incorrect. Rinos are removing DADT from the military. Not bringing it to the US.
O’Donnell in this situation would have not changed much as it passed with more than what was required. O’Donnell would have been a welcomed addition to the Senate had she ran her campaign a lot better. She will run again someday but hopefully after she learns to run a successful campaign. There is a process in it for sure. There is probably a ton of books written on the subject.
dadt is used as a metaphor for homosexuality
The point is more like her and fewer like the rinos mentioned (and unmentioned).
“It’s about the manipulation of conservatives by those who say that we must vote for “moderates” if we hope to get even a small piece of the pie.”
Many of whom have inhabited this and other conservative forums even though they are only republicans. I noticed that El Jefe zotted a few today and I applaud that. Those were the types that force cowardly moderates upon us.
O’Donnell may actually have a chance at a rematch in 2 years when buyers remorse ha set in. Then again, Delaware has a huge welfare population so who knows
Castle, Murk, Kirk, Brown....but they are soooo electable!
Brown was the closest thing to a conservative in the running. Regardless, the effort to elect him seemed more about proving the power of the TEA Party. Remember how the liberals were shocked that Brown "took Kennedy's seat?" They were outraged!
However, it's true that a lot of posters on FR don't seem to realize that the Country Club GOP elite are damn near the same as the Socialist/Progressive Democrats.
>We have injured America’s war-fighting ability.<
And muslims are hi-5ing each other.
WH official says Pres. Obama made calls this morning reaching out to Senators on both sides of the aisle to support repeal of DADT.
You're leading off with a metaphor that you understood in your mind, but to the reader, the frame of reference to DADT is a a law....not a metaphor.
Not that I disagree with what you're saying, nor am I wishing to be critical. I'm just pointing out that you were being confusing.
You’re far too nice to Rove.
“The Republican senators voting yes with the Democrats were Mark Kirk of Illinois, Scott Brown of Massachusetts, George Voinovich of Ohio, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins, both of Maine.”
Too late on Murkowski and Kirk, and Voinovich is gone, but now you know who to target in primaries in 2012 and 2014.
And add in Lugar and the other RINOs who will vote for the START Treaty that will condemn a million Americans to death as the Iranian missile nuke goes off over New York in a few years.
IF they have the time after dismounting their 15 year male concubines, I’m sure they would.
I know in Wisconsin and Michigan there is a Recall Referenedum that can be used aginst Senators and Congress Critters at the federal Level. What other states have this procedure Alaska, Illinois, Indiana?
This policy will undermine the US Military, but that is part of Odumbo’s plan of action - weaken America - attack its military, economic foundations and whatever else he can destroy. The guy hates america.
Brown, Maine, Collins need all to go. Voinovich and Bennet have lost reelection - so this is how they will payback America. Welcome to how an elction can screw America even more. How much money did they receive from Odumbo?
Kraut and Rove should be happy.
No...Delaware is too blue. She needs to move to a red (or at least purple) state if she wants to be a Senator.
ALL future problems related to the repeal of DADT will be blamed on the left of both major U.S. political parties!
I’m guessing a lot of people in Alaska are not too happy.
Simply because they didn’t like Miller doesn’t mean they wanted gays in the military.
Elections have consequences, as Rush says.
Thanks, PB. I really do want to be a good writer.
I think it’s over for O’Donnell here in Delaware. We are grateful to her for getting Castle out of the picture, but she has little appeal for the Republican base in the northern part of the state and none from the heavily Democrat majority in the City of Wilmington. The more conservative southern counties don’t have the numbers to overcome that.
Um, the voters of Delaware. Or did you forget?
I just want to know now since a dem congress repealed a dem policy if Obama will now sign into law and become in favor of gay marriage when he has been against it this whole time.
She used to live in NJ, and Menedez is up for election there in 2012.
America deserves this—we have had our chickens come home to roost. Welcome to the Gayocracy. Soon only homosexuals will be able to vote or hold office. I didn’t mind when they were there but, I am getting sick of the in you face, parade gay agenda force upon the nation. Does anyone else see this as a negative.
