Put the enemy on record...and I want the vote results by name as to whom supports each of them.
RAUL LABRADOR ON THE ISSUES:
Strengthen border security; redouble our efforts. (Nov 2010)
Opposes a pathway to citizenship. (Nov 2010)
On with Hannity..
Sounds sane.. That can make for a real clash RE: eGOP
McCarthy is the rubber stamping a Vichy eGOP takeover
Or is a continuance of the same old same?
Sadly folks I like are not in the hunt
I hope Obama doesn’t try to eat him.
Boehner needs to be voted out.
Local Fox radio says this afternoon that Labrador is pro-amnesty.
Do you want this 7 foot rattlesnake or do you want that 7 foot rattlesnake?
I’d vote for Rep. Raul Labrador. Its not so much his politics but his race and background that our now racist population is going to be looking at.
We need him for the wrong reasons, lets just hope he can save of for the right reasons.
I guess Beck will back him
Another supporter of amnesty that’s not amnesty.i
Yep, Raul is THE man for the job!
I don’t trust this guy, but he’s certainly an improvement on McCarthy.
Labrodor, I guess, just wants legalization of Illegals - McCarthy wants full Amnesty.
The country loses either way.
Trouble is, some of the best House people are chairing crucially important committees, and they need to stay there. However, look for more "back benchers" (tee hee! like Gingrich, back in the day) to at least make a race of it!
It would, but since Labrador has no chance of winning then it won't.
I have corresponded with Labrador. He is not a political insider or a GOP elite. He is a strong conservative, though there are some things I disagree with him on.
He is an honest, decent man, who loves this country. I would far rather see him as the Majority Leader than McCarthy.
The praise for Labrador from numerous conservatives puzzles me. He’s more pro-amnesty than Cantor.
I hope Labrador can retrieve this position. :)
This sounds good. I never heard of him before but anybody but McCarthy according to other FREEPERS. Good News. He is kinda young too.
