MAINE MANIACS – Olympia Snowe (R) & Susan Collins (R) ^ | 12-28-2010 | AJ

Posted on 12/28/2010 6:37:00 PM PST by Whenifhow

What can I say about Maine’s Senators that you don’t already know? Yes, they voted to ratify the dangerous New START Treaty and they failed to research Russia’s alliance with countries like Iran, China, North Korea and Venezuela.

To ensure Senator Collins’ vote in support of the treaty, it appears she received a letter according to the Washington Post:

“For example, concern was ignited across Europe recently when stories appeared about Russia moving tactical nuclear weapons near the border of NATO countries. During last week's Senate treaty debate, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates had to explain in a letter to Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) that a short-range ballistic missile unit had long been stationed near Russia's border with Estonia. They added that Moscow had announced that its newer SS-26 short-range missiles would be stationed there.

Recognizing the unease such actions cause, the Clinton-Gates letter went on: "Although this deployment does not alter either the balance in Europe or the U.S.-Russia strategic balance, the U.S. has made clear that we believe Russia should further consolidate its tactical nuclear weapons in a small number of secure facilities deep within Russia.”

Their comment about the Russians moving their tactical weapons east and far away from Russia's borders with NATO countries brings up what will be the first sticking point in dealing with Moscow about the weapons.

Despite the “R” next to their names, both are clearly Progressives. Senators Snowe and Collins have voted in favor of unconstitutional and fiscally irresponsible legislation time after time. Yet in election after election, the voters of Maine keep them in office. These “career politician” Senators have been in office since the mid-1990’s; Snowe was first elected in 1994 and Collins in 1996. Violating their oath of office is a common occurrence.

Here are just a few of the fascist and unconstitutional bills they’ve recently voted for:

o Food Takeover

o Bank Takeover

o $814 Billion Stimulus Bill

o Cash for Clunkers

o NEA Funding

o DADT Repeal

o Cap and Trade as part of a 2008 Senate Amendment

o $15 Billion Stimulus Slush Fund

o Forced Volunteerism and Child Recruitment

o Sonia Sotomayor Confirmation

o Elena Kagan Confirmation

Here is a couple that Senator Collins voted against:

o Prohibiting Earmarks

o Requiring Completion of Border Fencing

Olympia Snowe is up for re-election in 2012 and Susan Collins in 2014. Is it possible to find constitutional and fiscally responsible people in the state of Maine who can run against these Senators in the primaries?

Regardless… Snowe and Collins join the 11 other Republican Senators who are traitors to America because of their vote to ratify the New START Treaty which is a huge mistake for America.

I don’t understand why people just don’t get it.

They know what they voted for so lets stop making excuses for them.

Failed to research?

We fail to understand that people like this want America fundamentally transformed.

Until this election there were very few conservative Republicans with name visibility to challenge either Snowe or Collins. In Maine, all of the state-wide officials such as secretary of state, treasurer, and so forth are appointed by the state house and senate meeting as a single body-until this year, the Republicans did not have a majority of the votes in this single body-so ALL of the state officals were Democrats. That has obviously changed and we now have some good conservatives in office.
Will anyone of them challenge Snowe, probably not; Collins maybe.

In DeeCee, Collins and Snowe are more desireable than Angelina Jolee.

The Maine twins need to lose regardless who they lose to.
When there is no price to pay, whatsoever, nothing changes with these two. Maine is liberal alright, but these two need to be beaten and replaced. Maybe their replacements will respect Republicans more if they know the twins paid the price and that they will also.

The danger is that Russia will have attacks done by insane suicidal Iraanians who they are helping to develop nukes. We sshould tell Russia, “Any strike by Iran, North Korea or unknown foes will be assumed to be backed by Russia. We will have half of our nuclear forces targeted across Russia and set on Ground Burst. Russia would be uninhabitable minutes after a nuclear attack by anything that could be construed to be by you or any of your evil allies. We will launch all at once. Do you trust your survival to your evil allies?”

Dear leader zero is doing the exact opposite.

Cmon Maine’s alright. A new tea party Governor, LePage, and the R’s took the state house and state senate.

I assume that Snowe will be primaried out. She’d still have a good chance of winning as an Independent. Independents do win in Maine.

Even if they win the primaries, they need to be defeated.
A leftist RepubliCRAT is worse than a rat, as the leftist R simply gives cover and subversive assistance to their fellow progressives, rat or crat. In other words, a liberal Republicrat can be counted on to stab in the back and betray Conservatives when the chips are down, without fail. We need to know exactly where Conservatives stand if we`re to effectively deal with the aftermath of Obozo`s regime, let alone start to dismantle the Federal bureaucratic monster that threatens our Republic.
