Posted on 06/18/2010 7:09:32 PM PDT by Halfmanhalfamazing
Rep. Jo Bonner, an Alabama Republican, is calling on Rep. Joe Barton to step down as the ranking Republican on the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
Bonner is the second Republican, following Florida Republican Rep. Jeff Miller, to call for Barton to step aside.
In a lengthy statement, Bonner said his colleagues Thursday comments regarding BP sadly fell short of an appropriate response.

I stand with Joe Barton.
This Quisling and others need to stand down !
Even if I completely disagreed with Rep. Barton, it takes a grandstanding butthole to call for him to resign over this.
Messrs. Bonner and Miller, get bent.
this tells me the republicans are as dumb as a stump..they missed a perfect opportunity .....dont they care about the rule of law in this country...we have laws and the obama administration is constantly making up its own laws to suit themselves and it looks like Republicans are supporting them
So called Republicans acting like Democrats in the locker room isn’t acceptable behavior.
RQSR stands with Joe Barton.
Join me in calling these RINOs on Monday.
What is wrong with these people? I am amazed at their arrogance and ignorance.
Our country will continue this terrible downward spiral (fall) until the Republicans - ALL of the Republicans - get sense enough and spine enough to acknowledge right from wrong and WRONG from RIGHT!!!
20 Billion buys a lot of RINO Amunition... not that I am saying Bonner and Miller have been bought... but, have they?
Jo Bonner, I'd like you to meet Heywood Jablomie. RINO punk.
Hey Bonner. We are taking names.
These so-called Republicans couldn’t find their gonads with both hands and a mirror. They’re eunuchs! Their kind make me want to barf. They’re gutless, spineless, Elitists just like the RATs they suck up to.
I thought he was told if he apologized he would not be kicked off the committee? Well that is why he should have stood by his statement in the first place stand for your convictions gosh darnit. Serves him right for folding under pressure
This is a perfect illustration of just how pathetic certain elements of the Republican Party have become. These guys are as much a part of the problem as the dims.
This is the first time I’ve felt physically sick over Republican leadership.
I called yesterday and today. Did you?
I haven’t been this furious in a while. Boehner led the charge. He needs to pay.
Screw those little wimps.
Joe Barton is a man who speaks the truth
and deserves a badge for it.
