Fox confirms Vice President Joe Biden will have dinner Sunday night with a group of GOP Senators who could be swayed on Syria. The topic of conversation is expected to be what the President needs to say in his Tuesday address.
(Excerpt) Read more at foxnews.com ...
Sens. Kelly Ayotte (N.H.), Roy Blunt (Mo.), Saxby Chambliss (Ga.), Dan Coats (Ind.), Susan Collins (Maine), Bob Corker (Tenn.), Lindsey Graham (S.C.), Deb Fischer (Neb.), John McCain (Ariz.), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) and John Thune (S.D.) reportedly have been invited.
any senator who attends such a dinner after everything we’ve learned about this subject..... should be voted out of office.
there is no protocol rule against ‘having a previous engagement’
What he is going to say will certainly be as memorable as anything Miss Othmar ever hadd to say.
So who are these people invited? Likely my Kelly Ayotte who needs her head examined.
Shocked! Shocked! There is GAMBLING in this House.
Round up the usual suspects..... (trails off...)
I guess I am going to have to re-message Coats. He does know that he is not going to get along with Many people in the sate if he is dumb enough to get wined a snookered by the Vice Village Idiot.
Ayotte is such a scumbag....she ran to the right of Reagan up in NH. Won the election by 23 points. Just seen her on an interview & she looked like a deer caught in the headlights.
Hope that meal is worth losing their next election.
Thanks for getting the complete list.
Ayotte has already caved, Corker, Graham and McLame are the architects of this disaster.
Blunt will fold like a cheap suit. Chambliss perhaps, its not like he’s facing re-election. Coats is a tossup. So is MurCOWski.
I’ll go out on a limb and say Fischer and Thune will say NO, and even Collins I think will be a NO. Maine is not a war state.
Deb Fischer (Neb.) has turned out to be a WORTHLESS Squish.
Thank you, I was hunting for the list.
Sounded like many of them accepted the invite.
It did sound like Fox News was surprised the President was going to be in attendance. Wonder if these republicans realized that before accepting?
The first thing she did was cast in her lot with McLame and Gramnesty. Only in comparison to Queen Jeanne the Abortion and Spending Machine does she look any good at all.
She’s weak. Unbelievably weak. She voted our way on gun grabbers, and the minor outrage in New Hampshire stirred up by that Nazi Bloomberg made her cry herself to sleep.
A spine of steel she has not.
How can you just sit there and not feel like you are being played?
She’s a follower.
Maybe one of Kelly’s kidswill come down with the sniffles.
It’s odd the prez isn’t meeting with Rats. Reid has lost his mojo apparently if Udall is anything to go by. Schatz and Pryor are easily explainable, but Udall didn’t have to abandon O on this one.
She showed so much promise. My mom lived up there at the time & voted for her over Ovide. Bad choice in retrospect.
What both nobama and biden “need to say”: I RESIGN IMMEDIATELY.
All these hacks support the war. So what is the purpose of the meeting?
Pass out cash they can stuff in their freezer?
Any congressman who gives you this “crap” about being undecided should be removed at the next election! I called both Heck (NV) and Heller’s office and got that response. In fact that’s ALWAYS the response on anything. I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m SICK OF IT!!!!
Now I want to know how these Senators can support such an inept delusional liar who is unfortunately our CIC?
I know. She’s a lightweight and its a shame because New Hampshire is already handicapped having sent Night of the Living Golden Girl, Shaheen to the senate
I really hope Deb Fischer isn’t going to cave.
Lamar Alexander still has his finger in the wind.
He has had 2 weeks.
After which course will Slow Joe play the video tapes of the beheadings of innocent people taken off a bus that was attacked by our friends, "the vetted opposition"?
After which course will Slow Joe play the video tapes of the dead Syrian soldier having his heart and liver eaten by one of our friends from the "the vetted opposition"?
Will Slow Joe discuss the maturation of his views of the war powers act, to see if he still feels that he would impeach a President that carries out and act of war without the approval of Congress?
What is for dessert? Humble Pie or Crow?
Ovide is a darn good man. Such a shame he was never a successful candidate. This state has gone to hell.
Ayotte has really been a huge disappointment, wishy-washy like Collins and the rest of those Northeast women. That’s why I won’t support any presidential from the East Coast.
Bear in mind, these senators have only been invited. Only Collins and Corker are confirmed to be in attendance right now. And whoever attends, doesn’t necessarily guarantee their vote.
Kelly is a follower and a wannabe - a very dangerous combination.
Ayotte is not showing up to any NHGOP meetings around the state....real brave of her.
I’ve spent time with Ovide. He’s good people. NH is a mess right now. Sad to see.
a question of launching a new war (and not where it is obviously needed, Iran, but in Syria... a Irani client state to be sure but nevertheless NOT where the nuclear missiles are being built or, so far as we are told, stored up)
this question should be easy for any intelligent congresscritter to decide, in the negative (absent at least some explanation of how an expanded war against Syria would help anybody)
if your congresscritter is undecided he is either stupid like last year’s cowturd, or else he’s trying to avoid telling you that he plans to vote to bomb the shit out of another country just to install more antiAmerican antiChristian Islamicist “rebels” for Obama
time to vote him out.
ps: i had occasion to write a famous congresscritter a little while back and was informed there would be NO reply at all (not even an evasion like you get)... unless my name was on her contributions list
we need to do some house=cleaning
The Saudis will be passing out the party favors.
free meal :D
Whenever I have read about Biden inviting key Repubs over for dinner, I keep thinking of that scene in Goldfinger where all the mobsters were gassed and never heard from again.
And the winners among Senators to face a primary opponent is........
Money, lots and lots of money
Didn’t have to read the article to know which “republicans” were invited.
Well, first of all, Moo Cowski and McInsane aren't Republicans. Neither is Collins.
Fischer is...I hope she enjoys the free meal and then tells the Clown to shove it. Thune, too.
I am not against eating with 'em...but voting with them? Nyet.
I’d go. I’d eat everything he had to offer. Then I’d tell him what a total idiot liar he is.
...prolly drop a big deuce in his personal bathroom, too.
I say "Dirty" because they're already on my list for even accepting the invitation.
They remind me of the traitor Judas who broke bread with the Lord at the Last Supper.
Will these spineless GOP senators go forth to betray their constituents after breaking bread with the Left's earthly Messiah?
Marco Rubio was not there???????
Party favors in the form of freezer cash.
You would be surprised what a freezer full of cash can do to change a vote.
You get the idea.
Rubio voted no in committee.
I vote for,"We both resign".
