Liberal Group Praises Crossover Republicans
Fox News ^ | 02/08/2009 | Fox News

Posted on 02/08/2009 3:49:26 PM PST by Robwin

Usually, Americans United for Change buys ads to lambaste Republicans for opposing issues backed by the liberal, union-supported issue advocacy group initially founded in 2005 to rally against President Bush's Social Security reform plan.

But when three Republicans crossed the aisle over the weekend to say they will support a compromise economic recovery plan opposed by every other Senate minority Republican, Americans United for Change bought up radio time urging voters to call and thank Sens. Olympia Snowe, Susan Collins and Arlen Specter for "providing the leadership we need to get the job done."

Oh, definitely. "Leadership" consist of betraying your country's and your Party's best interests. These 3 make up the senatorial Benedict Arnold Caucas.

Part of this may be an attempt to block complaints about the traitor three from getting through the overloaded Senate phone system.

What is this group going to say if Kent Conrad (D-ND) decides not to vote for the package like is being rumored?

I don’t call those three having any leadeership — I call them traitors who are out for themselves and could care less about taxpayers.

I, to this day, have no idea why President Bush campaigned for Specter. He was a pain in W’s arse and a huge pain in ours!!!! The other two and Specter are not only RINO’s, they’re out and out liberal Democrats.

Spectre probably voted “Glenfidditch”, Scottish Law for having drunk too much whisky to know what the hell he was doing.

Sens. Olympia Snowe, Susan Collins and Arlen Specter are NOT Republicans, the are RINOs.

A few RINO votes does NOT make a "BiPartisan Bill".

I actually think Rino is too kind of a name for the three marxcateers.

They are traitors to our party and to the American people!
I hope Americans who understand what this legislation will do to America/Americans, will make their lives a living hell until they switch back. I will be on the phone first thing in the morning and all day long. My lie_bral Sin_ators are going to be hearing from me again too.

I don’t know why we even bother to call them RINOS. They are REALLY liberals. They only run on the GOP ticket so they can get elected. Specter’s been a horse’s ass on too many important votes in the past. I hope the sorry POS will have to retire SOON!!!
