Conservative group: Mitch McConnell, John Cornyn ‘turncoats'
Politico ^ | 9/24/13 | KATIE GLUECK

A conservative political action committee on Tuesday slammed two of the Senate’s top Republicans as “turncoats” who have “surrendered” on the health care fight.

“Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn have surrendered to Barack Obama, Harry Reid, and the Democrats,” charged an email blast from the Senate Conservatives Fund. “More importantly, they have surrendered to Obamacare — the biggest job killer in America.”

“We knew Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn weren’t with us when they voted to fund Obamacare earlier this year,” the email continued. “But then, under pressure from grassroots, they said they supported the effort to defund it. They even ran political ads in their home states to make voters think they were on their side. But now, faced with the prospect of having to fight for the things they claim to believe, these Senate leaders have surrendered.”

The email, bearing the subject line “the ultimate betrayal,” urged readers to contact GOP senators and indicate opposition to moving forward with the bill.

“We can’t let these turncoats force millions of Americans into this liberal train wreck,” it said.

Two more for the tree of liberty. Do they want to hang together or separate?

Neither of the SOBs will ever be UNDER the yoke of ObamaCARE.

NONE of them.

Nor their families, forever.

Nor whomever they put on their staffs, forever.

They are the equivalents of Marshal Petain and Vidkun Quisling. Collaborators.

As a high ranking minority, you can get a lot of hay from the majority by turning your coat at opportune moments.

Some people (cough McCain) do this so often that it is almost an art form.

You can't get thru to Cornyn’s office. These RINO bugs are crawling out of the cracks en masse. Now we have no doubt who has been advancing the liberal agenda for all these years and wants to continue. Yes, follow the money on all these lifelong politicians. They are being paid well to support certain legislation. I wish someone would investigate and publicize.

Oh, no....they’ll have that “No” vote on ObamaCare to cover their butts in their next election....the vote that Reid will win with 51 votes to strip the House defunding language from the bill. But these slime balls will have voted for cloture tomorrow, which will enable Reid to win the vote to fund ObamaCare with 51 votes instead of 60. The vote that counts is tomorrow, and if all 46 Republicans voted against cloture, Reid couldn’t win. Don’t be fooled by the liars who think we are too stupid to catch on to their well-worn trickery.

Liars. All of them. Repubics and Democraps. All of them. I have no faith at all in either "party". There is only one party. Liars, all of them.

Where's all the FReepers gravitating to this thread to tell us the GOPe candidates aren't bought and paid for, that it's "okay" because they're the lesser of two evils, or to sling the "purist" accusation?

Also, where's the herd jumping in line to explain how McConell and Cornyn are playing some sophisticated multi-level chess game and that by "caving" or portraying turncoats Mc and Cornyn are somehow "political geniuses" doing this for the benefit of us poor non-politically astute ignoramuses? (ala the genius 'It's a Tax Roberts')

This is what happens when we blindly vote for (R). This is what happens when we sacrifice principle so "our guy" can get in there. I'm not advocating that [you] only vote for the guy with 100% the same views as [you] but if they don't meet the 75% threshold and your candidate's attributes are -

He's the lesser of two evils

He sucks less

His platform evolved

He'll get mentored and taken under the care of some conservative

Some other (R) or group of (R)s will 'hold his feet to the fire'

He has (R) by his name

Well, he claimed to be a "severe conservative" --

Here is your folly in action - McConell, McCain, Grahm, Cornyn

Now let's hope Boner can hold onto the backbone he borrowed over in the House.

Rand Paul: Time for GOP to soften [immigration, gay marriage] stance.
"We're going to have to be a little hands off on some of
these issues ... and get people into the party," Paul said.
cr@p...Has Rand Paul, "grown" into office now?...
it seems he's gone CINO.I guess the
District of Criminals does that to you.
