He does indeed. Kirk votes however his beltway masters and mainstream media pundits tell him to. I've been saying since 2010 that Kirk would move LEFT in the U.S. Senate and embrace gay marriage at the opportune time, and repeated my assertion when Portman switched. Kirk was probably hoping for gay marriage legislation to come up in the Senate so he could pull a Benedict Arnold and inflict the MAXIMUM damage on the GOP and milk the most fawning coverage from the mainstream media, but he got the "OK" signal because they figured SCOTUS is going to rule their way. Kirk couldn't wait to go public his support for gay marriage.
>> Rosana Pulido tried to warn us. <<
A lot of us did, like we tried to warn GOP voters about Arnold Schwatzenegger and other leftist tools. We were shouted down their supporters, who sworn up and down that "Kirk only votes liberal because he HAS TO in order to get elected in a very liberal district. He will vote more conservatively once he represents the whole state" and "We'll have Kirk's ear, he OWES conservatives big time and will listen to our concerns", blah blah blah.
I'd serve the Kirkbots their crow, but they'll either be in hiding today, deny they ever made those claims about Kirk, or flip-flop themselves, like how they were screaming from the rooftops that we HAVE TO "seat Kirk immediately" in the U.S. Senate so he can the "lame duck killer" (this was the MOST IMPORTANT ISSUE EVER), then flip-flopped 180 degrees and claimed the lame duck session "only dealt with minor legislation", once their hero broke his campaign promise and immediately began voting for cloture on Obama & Durbin's lame duck bills.
I'm not sure who is worse: Kirk, or the "conservatives" who enable him.
>> Moochelle will be claiming his Senate seat in 2016. Hes.. um... expanding his appeal. <<
I didn't vote this turd in 2010, and I won't in 2016. I honestly hope he loses. I am really sick of their hearing this "we can demand perfection in OUR state but you're in a blue state so you HAVE TO vote for liberal Republicans" lectures from other conservatives.
Kirk's mini-me Bob Dold tried to run as Dem-lite and campaign as Obama's BFF in 2012, and he lost to the official Dem. The "being liberal makes you more electable" crowd still doesn't get it. Dold didn't win over any "independents" and he certainly didn't win over any Democrats by pandering to them. Anyone who agrees with that agenda simply voted for the official Democrat in the race.
Hardly a shock. Every liberal Republican will come out for faggotry soon enough. And unfortunately some not so liberal but not so principled ones will as well. Loving father and fool Rob Portman opened the door.
I could get in some Kirk bashing but this goes well beyond Mark Kirk, all of us knew that Mark Kirk was a liberal Republican before he was elected to the Senate. If he has an excuse to take a liberal position, he’s gonna do it.
We are losing this issue big time, 12 months ago even liberals like Kirk and Collins wouldn’t have dreamed of endorsing gay marriage.
Hell it was less than a year ago that OBAMA endorsed it. Less than a year. Before that he was afraid he’d get destroyed if he did. Talk about rapid, I’ve never seen anything like this.
Oddly enough some liberal democrats have yet to officially “come out”, Tom Carper JUST did. 7 democrats in the Senate still haven’t. They better soon or the gays will LYNCH them.
They are Manchin, gun control traitor of WV.
Nelson of Florida, just reelected.
Heidi! of North Dakota just “elected” thanks to the reservation vote,
Joe Donnelly of Indiana just elected cause Mourdock is an idiot, We’ll see if he has any principles, doubt it.
Tim Johnson, retiring.
And Mary Landrieu and Mark Pryor, up for reelection in states where people read the bible.
Don’t you think the gays must be upset that all these liberals people that already supported them were too afraid to say so till now?
I hope they direct their anger at Mary and Mark. Everyone email those cowards and tell them to stand up for gay families. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL
