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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!!!

To date, Obama’s delusional lies explain why for me personally, I cannot support this Syria debacle. The way Obama handled Ben Ghazi is despicable. Obama lied to us and the world for weeks on end about the video and then went so far as to arrest and put in jail that poor Coptic Christian. Worst of all he refused to rescue our Ambassador, a State Department worker and two former Navy SEALs. There is no way I trust him with Syria.

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.

After which course will Slow Joe play the video tapes of writhing, frothing at the mouth victims of Sarin?

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?

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.

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

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.

Somebody please name those of this "Dirty Dozen minus one" who can be Tea Partied in '14.

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?
