HERE COMES TROUBLE: Mary Landrieuís Going To Vote For Gun Control
The Hayride ^ | April 9, 2013 | Walter Abbott

Posted on 04/09/2013 1:34:17 PM PDT by abb

According to the Wall Street Journal, U. S. Senator from Louisiana Mary Landrieu will vote to move forward gun control legislation now pending in the U. S. Senate.

Reid Sets Gun-Bill Vote for Thursday

Two conservative Democrats who are up for re-election in 2014 held back from immediately joining the GOP effort to stop the Senate from voting on the gun-control bill.

“This is an issue that we should debate,” said Sen. Mary Landrieu (D., La.). The Louisiana Democrat said she plans to wait until she sees the final language of any bipartisan deal on background checks before deciding whether she will support it.

Sen. Mark Pryor (D., Ark.) told reporters that he wanted to “see how this develops” before deciding whether to join the Republican filibuster. “I know that many senators are working to try to get to some sort of compromise,” he said.

She is not a terribly clever politician. The main vote is the filibuster. If the bill comes to an actual vote Reid has eough votes to pass it in the Senate without Landrieu. He definitely needs her to vote against the filibuster. The voters of Louisiana will see right through her nonsense. However now that New Orleans has been repopulated with reliable Democrats, she does not need the few rednecks that foolishly helped her in 2008.

Johnson has already decided not to run for re-election in 2014.

I suspect that she wants a vote, so that she can go on record voting against it. If it never came to a vote, she wouldn’t get the credit, and she couldn’t wave her no vote in front of the crowds at the election rallies. I suspect that the other Dems in conservative states will adopt the same strategy. Argue in favor of an “open debate”, and then vote against it.

I don’t think that Harry Reid would oppose this strategy, he doesn’t really want a real bill, he just wants to appease the gun grabbers and the leftie deep pockets.

There is no such thing as a conservative Democrat.

Sick of her, sick of the Landrieus. She’s got nerve voting to ‘control guns’ when her brother, the Mayor of the Hole Called New Orleans, can’t control the thugs using the streets as a shooting gallery. When I see them ‘control’ guns by storming into the projects and known criminal neighborhoods, going door to door and checking the residences of felons for guns, then -and only then- will I say government is doing its job. Controlling CRIMINALS not inanimate objects. In the case of the Landrieus- who live with armed security-voting for denying the rights of law-abiding citizens while not have the GUTS to control the criminals just makes me wish they would meet a thug on a dark street.

I expect LA to vote stupid, which explains Landreau.

What baffles me is how North Dakotans could be so masochistically gawdawful stupid as to vote in this POS. What the hell were y’all thinking?

The DemonRATs think this gun issue is something they can club the Republicans with. I say to the Republicans, stand fast for the Constitution. The DemonRATs are trying to scare you using their boiler plate tactics of putting children up as their shield.

Probably the same as the West Virginians that elected Manchin as senator. In Manchin’s case, he was helped by a quarreling Republican party that couldn’t find its ass with both hands.

Cassidy is maybe not quite as conservative as Vitter, but close. He has a good record in the House.

Because of Ben Nelson NE, voting for obamacare, republicans picked up what was a conservative democrat seat. Bob Kerrey (once governor of NE) tried to run against Fischer and lost by a landslide. I think this next election will see the republicans pick up seats held by so-called conservative democrats. People are mad at what is going on. From the results of the primary mayors race in Omaha, I think we will have a republican mayor. We will go from red to bright lipstick red. Obama is going to be blamed for democrats losing next election. I hope so anyway.

Landrieu Under 50 Percent in New Poll
Louisiana politics led off Politico’s “Morning Score” today with a new Senate race poll and new plans for Jeff Landry.
The Harper poll has Sen. Mary Landrieu leading Congressman Bill Cassidy, 46-41 percent, and BESE Chairman Chas Roemer, 46-33 percent. That Landrieu remains under 50 percent, as in recent polls, points to vulnerability, says Politico. Also, that 56 percent of those surveyed did not have an opinion of Cassidy and 64 percent did not have one of Roemer means the Republicans have room to grow in favorability. What should be concerning to Landrieu is that in a generic ballot test, 46 percent said they would prefer a Republican candidate to 40 percent who wanted a Democrat.
