Why In Godís Name Do the Gutless Wonder GOP Want to Cave On A Winning Issue Like Gun-Control?

BREAKING: Sources Report Senate Republicans Caving on Guns | RedState

Sources inside the Senate tell me that the Republican Conference is scared to death of the tactics of Senators Lee, Cruz and Paul – that it is supposedly putting them in a tough spot.

Several of the Republicans are using the Manchin-Toomey compromise plan as an excuse to cave on the gun filibuster. They claim that Senators Lee, Cruz, and Paul are running ahead of the conference in their insistence on a filibuster.

What they fail to see is that the cloture vote is the vote to stop the gun legislation from passage.

Several Republican Senators intend to vote against the filibuster, but then vote against the overall bill. This is too clever by half.....

The GOP is dead, they just don’t know it yet.

Why do you assume the GOP wants to win?

Because the D.C. Repubs get squeamish when the Left brings up the spectre of slaughtered kids... suburbia starts to swoon...

Precisely! The fix is in, and these bastards are part of the Scam - all should be impeached and then hung.

They get a kick out of putting Justice Robert in between a rock and a hard place.

Because the moderates fear losing power. They are willing to lose us as long as the democrat party will welcome them.

They’re progressives, that’s why.

“Republican” these days is just diet Obama, or if you prefer, Obama Lite. I’m done with this party. The GOP was my last bastion of refuge, but they have abandoned me.

Republicans are caving and thinking Reid is once again a “nice” guy. They are allowing themselves to be screwed and by extension, screw us.

I am sick to death of Republicans except for the ones actually trying to stop this.

Because they want to make sure they get invited to all of the cool parties from now on.

Because we are being offered two parties; the distinctions between them are similar to the distinctions between Coke and Pepsi.

A necktie party would be appropriate.

It does matter what they do.

They are not the Boss of us.

I’m serious.

Tyrant Kim Un Obama must be very pleased that his efforts have so easily “FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGED THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.”

Exactly. They still get the perks, don't have to deal with what they cave on, and get to go to all the DC parties. Great work if you can find it..

I, too, am done with the R party, done with politicians, and done with the socialist media.

They may think that they rule me because I live in the US. They are mistaken. They do not rule me, nor do they tell me how to live my life, flush my toilet, build on my property, or possess the firearms of my choice. We will all be fine as long as they stay the hell away from me.

Our public servants are not our rulers, and it’s time they were reminded.

The GOOBer’s say they want to pick and choose the battles to fight. They just haven’t found one that they like yet.

I do not recognize the authority of any other man to tell me I must check with them before I buy or sell a gun.
