“Joe Manchin is anti-abortion, anti-gay marriage, anti-gun-control. I hope that leads him to a good pick but I still think everyone should scream to high heaven to “Let the People Vote!”.”

You are correct. Joe Manchin is about as conservative a Democrat that you will ever find but he is also a big Obama supporter. I’m sure he will take his marching orders and appoint who he is told to appoint to fill the vacancy until a special election could be called. The long standing rumor was that he was going to appoint HIMSELF as the senator. I think he denied it though.

If Manchin goes to the Senate, all of his prior beliefs are null and void until proved otherwise. Such is the nature of these people.

"...Joe Manchin is about as conservative a Democrat that you will ever find but he is also a big Obama supporter..."

OK ... riddle me that one. How does this work? Manchin himself is 'anti-abortion, anti-gay marriage, anti-gun control' ... however he is 'big' supporter of a President who is pro-abortion (very pro-abortion), pro-gay marriage, and pro-gun control ...
If Mr. Manchin really supports a President with these attributes - I don't believe the qualities (pro-life, pro-marriage, pro-2nd Amendment) you credited to him...
Something does not compute...

He's not going to appoint himself. The Lieutenant Governor is going to do that.
