Sen. Collins (ME) will vote with Reid for cloture on Hagel nomination vote
Fox News Channel (no link) | 2/14/13

Posted on 02/14/2013 7:24:56 AM PST by pabianice

Reid has 57 votes for cloture. Collins of Maine is one of two R's supporting cloture but claims she'll vote "no" on floor vote, when her vote will make no difference. What a coward.

Catherine Hepburn has no principles. She’s wants her fellow worthless RINO to be successful but doesn’t want to be held accountable for it.

So... I wonder who will be turned with an offer of a juicy committee assignment or pork project?

A liberal Republican voting with the liberals. Now there’s a shocker.

Stimulus girl strikes again.

People in ME truly believe in Susan Collins, but no one knows why. It’s top secret.

Are Republicans in Maine blind and only thought they saw an R on her name on the ballot? I hope there are some actual conservatives in Maine who will campaign against this RINO.

Perhaps because her husband runs a Diploma Mill that flushes millions in student aid down a rathole.

Collins has the same principles as the people of Wisconsin.

The WI voters like democrats (see election of 2012) but they are opposed to recalls (see recall elections of 2011).

Collins is opposed to Hagle (floor vote) but is opposed to fillibuster (cloture vote).

This is baseless slander of the republican senate. None will turn.

You may be right in this since she was a member of the gang of 14 but I don’t buy it. First of all she’s a dolt. Second of all she’s easily duped and changes with the winds. And thirdly, she loves to help her buddies the democrats.

"Baseless slander" of the Republican Senate... many members of which said they would NOT vote to confirm Sotomayor or Kagan, or vote to ratify the NEW START treaty with Russia. Please do tell WHY great faith should be given in their steadfastness on this issue?

What was that about a “baseless slander?”

I think she pulled the same stunt on Health Care.

Meghan Kelly reported that a damning video of a speech Hagel made is supposed to be released today. Anyone know anything about this?

“I think she pulled the same stunt on Health Care.”

You think wrong. It was now retired senator Olympia Snowe, not Susan Collins.

Thanks for the correction. They were not known as the Bopsy twins for no reason. :)
