Skip to comments.Casey (& the Whole Blue Dog Team) Strikes Out!

Isnt it ironic that the more the nation turns pro-life and an ever-increasing majority recognizes how bad the monstrous health care plan is the more certain conservative or pro-life Democrats are caving in on these very issues? These are times that try mens souls apparently. What sort of moral foundation of principles have you built for yourself when you so loudly declare something about your core beliefs and then so easily betray them exactly when support is building among the people you serve?!? Such historic crossroads as we face now certainly provide a test of all that.
Senator Nelson from Nebraska is the prime case du jour; he has not only accepted what is bribery in all but name (the Cornhusker Kickback), but he has accepted the so-called Casey compromise on abortion which puts the lie to all he has said in recent days. Casey produced a list of faith groups that support his euphemisms, but the US Bishops and all authentic pro-life groups have seen through the ruse. It effectively provides the opportunity for massive Federal funding for abortion. (See here and here)
Yes, as indicated above, Senator 'CASEY JUNIOR' of Pennsylvania (son of the that brave Senator Casey who experienced being blackballed at his own convention in 1992 and other real sacrifices for remaining true to his Faith) was way ahead of Nelson in betraying pro-life conservatives. He is opting for the same symbolism-over-substance ploy used by Obama at Notre Dame. The Catholic Center Party in Germany during the 1930s fell to this same tactic; they received reassuring language from the National Socialists in return for some absolutely key votes that effected the transfer of power, which in turn negated any of the empty rhetoric used to co-opt them. It's possible none of the disaster that followed would have happened if it weren't for the 'compromise' of Franz von Papen and company.

Democrats always talk the talk, they just never walk the walk....if their lips are moving, they are lying...Merry Christmas to one and all........GG
The audacity they have to talk about someone dying every 2 minutes from lack of health care and in that same 2 minutes an abortion is performed-is just mind boggling.
To talk about saving the planet from CO2 only to turn around and murder a baby is horrifying to me.
And to use abortion/murder as your bargaining chip-
well-that’s just pure evil.
They fool no one! we will have the last laugh. Rest up, enjoy Christmas with family and friends, Let us all come out of the gate like rabied dogs with thier a##es on fire!
Worse, with Deathcare, people will die every minute because of the lack of health care. A few people will benefit from Deathcare, the vast majority will get less care and less quality. Its not about healthcare at all, its about control of people, its about fascism, its about time we put a stop to it!
Unlike the Republicans, the Democrats have learned that the public wants more conservatism in politics. So, while the Republican Party continues to “run to the middle” as the answer to their losses, the Democrats fake to the right to give the illusion they are conservative, pro-military, pro-life candidates. Since Democrats are genetically mendacious, they have no problem with this duplicity or talking the talk until time to walk the walk. When the vote comes to be taken, they will vote with the Democrat party. They are not abandoning their principles. They are demonstrating the lie they perpetrated.
America wants a clear distinction. They do not want Democrat-light. They chose Democrats over Republicans when Republicans have demonstrated they are nothing but Democrats with an “R” after their name [RINOs or DIABLOs]. Given a choice between a Democrat and a Republican showing their Democrat bona fides, they pick the “Devil they know”.
Contrary to what the Michael Medved’s want to believe and sell, an identified Republican with demonstrated conservative credentials should win. This is what really happened in NY; we were just late in finding out and the Medveds, Gingriches, etc. were thinking only in two dimensions; any declared Republican is better than the Democrat.
Back the conservative Republicans. A conservative Democrat is a lie waiting to vote.
No one should be forced to pay for the murder of an unborn...I am pretty sure thats enought to get God really mad that his people have to do that...
Now thats a picture in my mind that causes some chuckles...Merry Christmas..........
We have to-it’s that clear to me.
No matter how depressing it is or how hopeless it seems, to do nothing would be worse.
Turn to the dark side, Luke! It's the only way to save the others!
Just goes to show you what slime Nelson is.
