McCaskill: I'm not disloyal to Obama
The Hill ^ | 11/17/2010 | Michael O'Brien

Posted on 11/17/2010 10:25:19 AM PST by markomalley

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) said she's not "disloyal" to President Obama, but is willing to differ with him and other Democrats when necessary.

The centrist Missouri senator said she believes Obama has done many good things, and sidestepped a fellow Missouri lawmaker's warning that distancing herself from the president would be "an act of disloyalty."

"I am certainly not afraid to oppose the president or members of my party if I disagree with them. But that doesn't mean I'm disloyal to this president," McCaskill said Wednesday during a conference call with Missouri reporters. "I think he was the right choice for our country at the right time. I think many of the things he's done should be admired, and have been good."

What she meant to say is, “I’m loyal to anyone who can possibly advance my career. Obama isn’t done yet.”

Didn't Ernst Rohm say something like that just before Hitler had him capped?

She’s really behind a rock and a hard place right now. Her behavior in her town halls and her Obamacare vote will cause her big trouble in Missouri. Now as she tries to pretend to be more reasonable after the horse is out of the barn, the left calls her disloyal. Not sure, but I think she’s up for reelection in 2012.

She’s trying hard to convince us Missourians that she doesn’t deserve the same fate as her fellow marxists on 11/2. Claire knows she would have been pitched out on her ear had her term been up. As it is, we’ll have to wait until 2012 to pitch her out on her ear.

Oh Claireeeee, we’re coming for you next. (insert evil laugh here)

“I think he was the right choice for our country... “
**************************************************
Right choice for what? To lead us on the path to socialism/communism? Right choice for Soros? Right choice to defy the Constitution? (This could go on all day, but I’ll stop now)

No worries, Claire. We The People know and agree you’ve been loyal to 0bama. The voters of Missouri will get back to you on that in 2012.

Clueless Claire now appearing as the Human Pretzel! Twisting herself every which way to avoid ticking off the left while appearing centrist. Nice show Claire.

Cannot wait to take down this idiot! I'm so ready to get this election started!

Trying to recruit David Limbaugh to run for senator in 2012 against Claire McCaskill. If he runs it would be a wipe out.
I wanted to draw your attention to this important petition that I recently signed: “David Limbaugh For Senator 2012”http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/showmestate4limbaugh/

Funny. Didn't the left accuse W of demanding loyalty oaths of people attending campaign rallies?

How bad is it that I first glanced at the headline and read, "McCain: I'm not disloyal to Obama," and didn't give it a second thought?

Prime take-down here. We really should get a good conservative Republican from MO. Then we need VA, NE, MT,ND,OH,FL I think we really need to pick up another Senator because of the likely outcome in AK and likely loss in MA. Murky will be totally useless and may even formally defect. Having these rinos in the party is often worse than going over to the Dems because these moderate coalitions usually just help the Dems get their agenda passed under the cover of bi-partisanship.

I hope you run a better candidate than the one “we” ran in Delaware.

That’s right, I forgot all about that fg. She’s a sow and definitely needs to be sent back to hubby.

Oh...she just weighed in on the TSA procedures (played on Rush’s show) and she is all for it...no biggie. (shock)
When she walks through the scanner they are going to need eye bleach I’m sure. LOL!!!

On election day, she was on local radio saying that the healthcare reform law was complex, and it was hard to explain to people.

It doesn’t help her case when she implicitly calls her constituents stupid.

She is in for a rude awakening in 2012.

The problem is, she doesn't disagree with them. She is gone in 2012.
