Sen. Arlen Toomey experiencing backlash (my vanity title)
https://www.facebook.com/pages/Senator-Arlen-Toomey/509367385792842?ref=tn_tnmn ^

Posted on 04/10/2013 8:05:00 PM PDT by ConservativeInPA

There is now a Facebook page for Senator Arlen Toomey.

Personally, I think someone as shallow and unprincipled as Pat Toomey would actually pay more attention to FaceBook instead of letters/emails for his constituents. I have tried to call his office three times in the past week and did not receive a person on the other end of the phone. I have emailed just as many times and still have not received a reply.

Apparently some have turned to social media to get through Toomey's thick RINO skull.

Maybe he can get on Obama’s Facebook page with McCain.

I called his Pittsburgh office at 4 o'clock and talked to Shawn. Shawn answered the phone: Senator Toomey's office.

I said to Shawn: You mean soon to be ex Senator Toomey's office. I then told Shawn to tell Toomey that he should stay in DC because his future in PA. is finished.

I told him my name and where I lived. I then informed Shawn that I would never vote for that son of a bitch again.

eff Toomey. He smelled like RINO poo from day #1. I’ll get flamed for this but I voted for Peg Luksik in the 2010 primary. In the general, I held my nose & voted for Toomey, but only because Sestak is a freakin communist.

I tried like hell to tell people Toomey was two faced. But I got laughed at, called names, and heckled by fellow FReepers. He’s a RINO - I do not know how else you describe someone who voted for the approval of RU-486, voted for the repeal of DADT, and verbalized support for Obama’s choice in Sotomayor. 100% pure RINO.

Flame away.

I’m off on Friday. I’ll call his Pgh office although I’m reasonably sure he couldn’t give a crap. He’s got his nice, cushy gov pension locked up & is part of the elite ruling class now. He has no time for us mere mortals.

Plus they turned out Rick Santorum.....and now PA does not recognize FL non resident CCW’s.

Move west to freedom my Keystone brothers.

Perhaps between the dwindling remnants of western PA and hill country OH conservatism, we clinging survivors can together make a decent state again....Pennsyio?

Flame you? Not on your life. I applaud you!

I live in AZ, but I knew Toomey was a traitorous POS when he voiced support for the repeal of DADT in the military.

I sincerely hope you can oust him when re-election time rolls around.

Thanks!

If you can spare 2:36, check out this doozy on YouTube:

How any dumbass can label this guy as a “tea-party” conservative is beyond me.

I have been locking for the actual language and all I can find is a summary on the Senator’ webpage.

As such, I suspect they are hiding the truth from us so they can try to pull a fast one.

I would really like to see the exact language.

Where was my barf alert? Lol.

You have my pity. But just remember: You have Toomey. I'm stuck with McCain!

Yes but McCain is old; at least the end is in sight for him - LOL! We’ll be stuck w Toomey for a long-ass time.

Sorry for leaving off the barf tag.

Seriously though, how did people NOT see this coming? That YouTube was from 2009, long before the 2010 primary. I guess when the party bosses back you & dump all the $$ into your campaign, they control the narrative and you really have no opposition.

Once again, the GOPe has shoved their candidate right up our collective butts.

There is no language. It isn't even written.

We are supposed to read it after the bill is passed. Just one more reason to raise hell against Arlen Toomey.

The bill should be called The Toomey-Manchin Kill The Bill of Rights Bill.

It's worse than any ban of some types or models of guns. It's a big step towards nullifying the 4th Amend., the 5th Amend., the 10th Amend. as well as the 2nd Amend.

A new law cannot do away with an amendment to the constitution. Sadly, it’ll take a lot of money and some time in jail to prove it.

That scumbag Toomey had a lot of people fooled. Maybe Santorum knew something.
Toomey blew his cover shortly after he was elected when he came out and supported the sodomization of the US military.

Toomey supported the sodomization of the US military, but he wasn’t sworn in yet so he couldn’t vote for it (although he would have).

There is the difference between the theory of a principle and the reality of life.

I hope he and his partner of this bill do get backlash.

Toomey pretended to be supportive of the Tea Party. I even heard on the radio that Obama and Reid has praised Toomey for this bill.

Link broken: either PT pulled the page or so many people are slamming it that it broke.

To PT (or any lurking staffer): FUPT ya ignorant moron. Way to toss a winning issue into the trash, idjit. Really, are you THAT d@mn politically STUPID? Did you see what happened with the Sen. Cruz filibuster? It WORKED. But NOOO, you have to suck up to the “moderate” middle. Well, moron, most of them are in fact on OUR side on this one. It was a wedge issue for the DEMOCRATS, and you just p!$$ed it away. Way to go, LOSER. Or are you really working for the other side? To scared to lose an invite to some inside the Beltway party? Either way, GTH.

I suspect that you are right and that only an outline of an agreement was hammered out, with staff directed to fill i the language.

If so, important details could be left out so it can be distributed in time for a Senate vote and debate.

If that is the cast a filibuster sounds pretty good to me.

The fact is Toomey wouldn't even rank in the 50% most conservative Democrats in the Senate. He is to the left of Dianne Feinstein.

Just waiting on Ted Cruz. I predict 2 - 6 months before he goes left.

Maybe not all of this the gun issue is the most important, but it is the only issue left. The fiscal and social issues are gone. So, if the Republicans are ready to surrender on guns, there isn’t much point in bothering.
