OK, so everyone’s calling on the blue dogs now.

But Sarah Palin should not participate in this?

My blue dog’s office would not answer the phone during the cap & trade fiasco.

Tyrants do not care what the opressed want or think.

Case in point, calls were running 100 to 1 against Bush’s bailout of 800 billion $$$. What did the tyrants do, they passed the bill.

Calls were against TARP I by about the same margins. What did the tyrannts do, they passed it, UNREAD.

I fear we must wait for our troops to take a stand on the COLB issue and remove the Dictator-in-Chief.

All hail Obama, blessed of the blessed, the holy one of Kenya. end sarcasm

it would also help things if the Blue Dogs received another arse-ripping over Cap-n-Tax when they come home for recess (the last one seems to be having a positive impact on this health care debate)

I didn’t say anything about lobbying them to do the right thing. Nothing wrong with that.

I just don’t want her or any Republican endorsing them in any election. They are our greatest enemy because they provide the rats with the majority as they sit in seats than can and should elect Republicans.

Agreed.

BTW does anybody know what the definition of small business (to be exempt from Obama Care fines/taxes) if they do not provide gov health insurance to their employees is? BTW: Military and Military dependents are the only ones grandfathered out!

These out of touch fools could define a small business at 5000 and then we collapse even faster.

Please don’t get your panties in a wad over trivial things, really!

These bluedogs are only FICALLY conservative so therefore I would garner a guessture that Palin would only endorse social conservatives.

I’ve called and e-mailed my BD rat daily. IMO we have to support them as they get pressured by Pelosi.

They aren’t really fiscal conservatives. Compared to Barney Frank maybe but not compared to a decent Republican. Only 2 house rats dared to oppose the unions on card check for example. Only a small handful voted against porkulus.

Palin would have no business endorsing a socialist but socially conservative democrat (like John Murtha).

There are actually a lot more house rats that are pro-life and pro-normal marriage for example than show any signs of supporting limited government and the free market.

My friend, what kind of leverage does she have other than to offer to campaign for them? You mean to tell me that if a democrat is willing to do enough conservative things to be a moderate that she should offer him nothing as an incentive? That’s not how politics works. Improvement should be rewarded.

If they won’t do the right thing cause that’s what they believe in they’d do it because they are afraid their GOP-leaning districts could toss them out if they don’t. Those are the only 2 reasons. If their constituents make enough noise it could scare them into compliance. That’s what this thread is about. It’s not about Palin bribing them with promises of support. I don’t know why you even brought this up. What she suggested was that she would support any democrat who happened to be conservative not that she would bribe liberals into voting the right way.

Anyway that would be silly because no democrat is gonna do anything because Sarah Palin offers to campaign for them. They’d lose the primary if they accepted such an offer. And they all hate and fear her opposition to their messiah. PEOPLE who are conservatives who sometimes foolishly vote democrat may like Plain. Democrats in office hate and fear her.

Hypothetically she could offer NOT to campaign for their Republican opponents but that would be supremely unjust to those candidates and counterproductive and basically a bribe. I doubt she would do such a thing. Palin’s efforts should in electing good Republican candidates and I believe that they will be,

Helping the other party get elected is actually not how politics works.

If democrats remain in charge there will be no improvement of anything. (except hopefully GOP poll numbers as they continue to screw things up). These blue dogs (almost none of them are close to what we would called conservative in their voting records) are the ones who keep Pelosi in power, they shouldn’t be supported by conservatives for any reason in the general election.

LOL. Dennis Moore is listed as a blue dog. I don’t think he has ever voted different from Pelosi.

Dennis Moore, D-KS IS NOT a fiscal conservative. He voted for TARP, for cap n trade, and for the stimulus.

I emailed my congressman and got a canned reply. Basically he let me know people voted for change last fall and he will vote on healthcare according to the results of that election. Between the lines I read my opinion means nothing to him.

I called Jame Harmon’s office in CA. “Listen, our phones are very busy today and we are only taking calls from constituents.” I am in Florida. All the other bluedog dems took my calls.

Maybe my phrasing was simplistic [I prefer to talk that way], but in light of the pressure Pelosi is bringing down on them, I for one am glad that Sarah Palin has reached her hand out, offering Blue Dogs a leg up, with such divinely inspired timing.
