I read this morning that Webb was ticked off about how his arm had been twisted earlier this week on the first vote.

When ALL these turds get walking papers come next election I hope they remember this vote and understand that it led to their downfall.
I will not forget.
Oh yeah and here’s hoping they get crap for their support for the rest of their lives no matter what endeavor they pursue.
Hound their asses.

This is just the beginning. The scumbag RINOs and DEMs who supported this have to be removed. The libs WILL GO AFTER FREE SPEECH RIGHTS AND TALK RADIO. Just wait. And they will be joined by RINOS! These scumbag politicians will now go after the Constitution to SILENCE TRUTH AND REALITY ABOUT WHAT THEY ARE TRYING TO DO TO AMERICA ... and the people have to be ready to deal with, AND WATCH, these scumbags.

The open border RINOs must go and the DEMs MUST BE KEPT OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE.

After the roughing up that Voinovich got on Hannity’s radio show yesterday, he changed his tune from the “You don’t know what’s in this bill and I do.” line to voting against it? hmmmmmmm...

I can understand (though disagree with) a vote to bring it up for debate earlier in the week, but this cloture vote was critical. I would say forgive and forget to the Senators who voted to bring it up earlier, but now voted against cloture.

Some of these guys could smell the coffee on this vote. Some were changing their vote once they saw it would not pass. “If it’s not going to pass, then I’ll vote no”.

“Which RINOs are up for re-election in 2008?”

Pandsey Grahamnesty, the biggest RINO of them all, is up for DEFEAT in 2008.

I wish him well in his new life selling insurance :)

Thanks for the list. It’s a keeper!

I’m surprised and pleased that Bernie Sanders voted the right way on this. I’ve always said that he may be a moonbat, but he has a good heart. Unlike Leaky Leahy, who is a Cold, Calculating Fish of the worst kind.

Go, Bernie!

If the RINOs aren’t defeated in the primaries then there is very little alternative but to vote for them in the general, just hold your noses. We could probably do alright and get rid of a couple of them, Specter and Hagel for starters.

Well Martinez was elected in ‘04 unfortunately , so he has a few more years of RINOism until he gets defeated in the primaries .

Can’t wait to send money to Grahamnesty’s primary opponent though ...

Kyl has been a total disappointment ...

Not Voinovich (and any others in his position). You don't get to vote "yes" and then switch to the politically more popular "no" after you see that the "yes" votes are failing.

Any senator who switched an actual vote or who slow walked their vote to be able to vote on the winning side gets no forgiveness.

Fun with spell check: one of the suggested replacements for Voinovich is Knavish.

UNbeeeeeelieveable!!!

Commie tommy Harkin finally voted for America. I am assuming someone threatened his family.

Harkin was AS ALWAYS coy to the end, I called an hour before this vote. Never never has he voted for anything but socialism and the defeat of AmericA.

Freeper People—you made a major difference—remain vigilant. We did prevail. Tomorrow is a new challenge. We will and must meet it.

My husband believes the Republicans that voted for it did so because they are afraid a more liberal bill will be made and passed. That they were trying to nail down the most conservative approach to this whole thing.

I'm actually shocked that Bayh (D-IN) voted NO. Of course he probably has some rationalization that has nothing to do with America and our sovereignty.

Not supposed about Lugar's Yea vote though. He's a RINO and has to GO! Unfortunately he's safe until 2012.

Here's the story behind those numbers, folks . . . Look at all the NO votes from Democrats in "Red" states.

At first glance, it looks like Stabenow (MI) is the only Democrat from a "Blue" state to vote NO.

The other story behind those numbers is that a substantial portion of the Republican Party is perfectly content to pitch George W. Bush overboard before he leaves office.

“Don’t forget Brownback and Voinovich who switched to NO after the writing was on the wall.”


To further clarify, those two voted for cloture today, then changed their votes at the last minute, to make it look like they were against it all along.

You are 100% correct, just sit back and watch the reaction, how dare the people try to voice their opinion, within the next 6 years you will be able to watch our country move from democracy to facism, just that quickly, it's happening.

Kyl (R-AZ)

It is sad, really, that Senator Jon Kyl has gone from stalwart conservative Republican Senator to supporting this amnesty crap. He has really pissed off a great number of Republicans in Arizona over this and he will feel the heat when he runs for re-election. What's more sad is that Republicans in Arizona mostly detest McCain, but we can't get rid of him. But Kyl may be one that we can get rid of and, despite his support of this amnesty garbage this time around, he's far better than McCain ever was.

Yes... I thought I would never have uttered the words that “I’m glad McCaskill is/was on our side on this issue..” but it happened.. As a resident of the Show-Me State, I am disappointed at Bond’s performance on this issue.
