GOP co-chair invites Senator Manchin to change party.

We already know Manachin, a Democrat, sold out West Virginia with his gun-control antics and sucking up to Obozo. Is the Republican party that stupid.

Are they that stupid.?

Yes. And even more stupid than that. They call McCain leadership.
That should tell you how stupid they are.

And why would Manchin change parties and lose whatever support he has left from the coal miners union, which I suspect is what got him/keeps him elected.

My view: We ought not be so cynical as to rule out a redemption story, no matter how imperfectly carried out on the face of this sinful earth. If he did jump parties, that would render him free not to be beholden to the Democrats’ cruel lockstep. It’s a conundrum that has no easy answer because there is always the possibility of diluting the GOP vision. However if we remember to trust more in God than we do in “princes” such invitations could bear more good fruit than bad. There is nothing perfect on this mortal earth but God himself.

Well, the coal miners’ union (and other unions) are beginning to see how much trouble the Democrats are. The GOP would be more likely to try to keep their jobs around than the Democrats would.

Or maybe his chances of reelection are better as a Republican than as a Democrat.

One can never be too thin, too rich, or have too many RINOs...

That’s it GOP, keep it up. And don’t count on my vote anymore.

Another reason not to give anymore money to the RNC, recruting gun grabbers that take bloomberg money. Last week we have Reince Prince saying “we have consenus on immigration reform and everyone agrees on it.” All the republicans I know ssy we need to inforce our current laws and protect our borders.

What you’re mocking at here, if you are mocking, goes whizzing right past me.

Forget the league of superheros. Remember Jesus Christ.

And where does Jesus instruct to welcome evil into our home? Because a Democrat, by nature of his affiliation, stands foursquare behind everything Jesus preached against...including Jesus Christ himself.

I am mocking the fact that while we are trying to rid ourselves of Republicans in name only, you are ok with a gun control DEMOCRAT to be admitted.

In a word, No.

You would never even invite a wife into your home, sir, because she too is a sinner needing redemption.

By mocking redemption you automatically block its work for yourself too... God has built this ironclad rule into the creation. I would stop and tremble if I were you.

I don’t mock redemption. Refer to my statement. Redemption is great. Has he shown ANYTHING like intent to renounce his Dem ways?

History does not equal future. These things have to be felt out by means of the Holy Spirit. To sit and snipe about what he had been is easy enough. To approach in Holy Spirit power PRIOR to making judgments is less easy.

How about he gets a new religion OUTSIDE a position of power and brings his faith in once he’s shown it. Why exactly do we need a Dem to go through this particular spititual overhaul IN OFFICE?

He is a Dem. He is inherently screwed up morally, mentally and pretty much every other way. We have a GOP that is about 2 nanometers better. The last thing we need is this. All he would do is be an incumbent Repub to block election of a conservative while playing at best the McCain role.

"Is the Republican party that stupid."

Had no question mark, so a statement . . . not a question. If that's the case, then the sentence is phrased wrongly. Should be . . . "The Republican Party is that stupid."

Because Obama is destroying the coal industry, Manchin might be smart to get out of the Dems.

Manchin votes 75% Marxist. Only a RINO would invite Manchin to join the R party. Republicans should be criticizing him, NOT inviting him to join.

I’d offer it to every Democrat up for reelection. Offer them the world.

Get the majority, go nuclear, impeach Obama, put Ried and Pelosi in prison, change back everything Obama did to destroy the country.

And in exchange we will give you one more election cycle.

I agree....I doubt he would have been involved in a gun deal as a Republican from WVa....he would be in an entirely different dynamic. He probably did have to do that on guns to keep from the Reid mafia on some other issues. Remember, these people do not exist in a vacuum. He is more Republican than Lindsey Graham or John McCain frankly.....

Meanwhile Obama and the RATS conduct open warfare on coal mining. Go figure. I supposed the Mine Workers will want a bailout like GM and Chrysler.

I don’t know if the change is possible now...Manchin got his “I’m Obama’s b!tch” tattoo already .... I wonder how you modify that for a party change?

Republican Senators vote for Republican Senate leaders. If there are 51 Republican senators, it’s bye-bye Dingy Harry. Any more questions?

Moving to the GOP would be an embarassment to Obama,make his legislation more difficult, opposing him easier, and he could be primaried out.

This is not that stupid.

"Moving to the GOP would be an embarassment to Obama, make his legislation more difficult..."

Without meaning to sound unkind, I'm wondering if you've been paying attention...

First, I've yet to see Obama embarrassed. He's thin-skinned and gets pissy & vindictive, but there's not much indication that he's embarrassed by anything. Especially when a move would be ignored and cushioned by the MSM, effectively mitigating any potential embarrassment.

Second, given the number of RINOs looking to roll over and have there bellies rubbed by Obama & the Dems, how much hope can we have that a party-switcher is going to fall in with a nearly-nonexistent conservative faction of an already compromised and compromising GOP? It's hard enough to get long-time GOP senators and congresscritters to take a principled opposition view.
