Tthe TpCaucus contnues to GRoW.. in most all places.. (JAWS THEME)..
Oh, Olympia..............Oh, Olympia..........are you paying attention.
I don't care what democrat legislation this guy voted against as a democrat. Once a democrat, ALWAYS a democrat I say.
Don't let him switch, it'll just be one more RINO we'll have to throw out in 2012 anyway.
“and wouldnt have worked for my district.”
And that’s what our senatorial and congressional members are supposed ot keep in mind when looking at law: Their District.
Whether or not the people who elected them will want to tar and feather them if they vote for something unpopular.
John Hall here in NY learned that the hard way.
Topo bad JigglyBrand and Schmucker are still reprehensing, er, representing NY.
This seems to suggest a “replay” of what happened after the 1994 elections — a number of conservative-leaning democrats switch parties.
Nothing particularly wrong with that. Those who are “opportunists” will be seen for that quickly. Those who switch because they really agree with the Republican side more than the ‘rat side will demonstrate such by their future behavior, and should be welcomed.
Remember that Ron Reagan was the greatest “switcher” of them all!
Great! Just what we need...another RINO!!
What’s the ratio of ‘Rats turning Republican and vice-versa? I’ll bet it’s better than 10:1.
I wouldn’t touch this turncoat with a sewage dipped barge pole.
He’s just another DemonRAT mole.
The caucus should refuse to seat him, and his election should be nullified for switching parties.
He is a liar and a thief.
We want PRINCIPLED LEADERS, not malleable followers, or even worse, spies and moles.
I would not trust a “Switcher.”
They ONLY do it to save their hides!
Plus, just another Republican-lite. We have enough of those already.
No Big Deal
these are local Maine seats not US House seats ....
at first it looks like they are talking about US House seats but it is not.....
Alas, liberal and conservative is what counts.
Republican and Democrat is just a political conduit.
He's already switched and you can't put a broken egg back together. So give him a chance and see how he votes. He sounds promising.
Remember what's written on Chicago's outdoor trash containers, "Every Litter Bit Helps".
This is a pet peeve of mine. If you get elected as a Democrat, you stay a Democrat. If a Republican, you stay a Republican.
If you want to switch parties, do it before the election cycle— not pull a bait and switch as soon as you’re elected.
This is fraud, pure and simple. Thousands of people gave money to their party to help elect their representative— or, even worse, gave money directly to his campaign. He’s got an obligation to those constituents to fulfill that “contract”.
That is just one of the many reasons I don't trust the Republican any more than I trust the Democrats.
One party with two faces.
Welcome, and remember why you switched. America needs all the help it can get. Our Country is in real trouble.
A dem switching over in the county is huge news!! Politics are a bit strange up there and full of social pressure to stay put.
The Maine is plainly pain for Obama.
“By George, he’s got it. “
