I don’t understand how anybody, especially an insider like Dick Armey can consider Bill Nelson a “moderate.” I think his ADA score is over 90. He talks real folksy but he’s a radical.
‘You talk like the Rats will actually honor the agreement.’
These kind of ‘gentleman to gentleman’ agreements are ALWAYS honored in the Senate, since otherwise they would not be made, and in that case the Senate could not operate.
I care about repeal. I don’t care to hear it from a former congressman who was in a house leadership position, when the GOP spent like drunken sailors and he said or did nothing.
Get your fact straight.
Armey wasn’t in congress during most of the Bush administration. He was squeezed out by the likes of Delay.
I have no problem with “staying the course”, but as I pointed out to dumblank, we only have 47 votes in the Semate and don’t forget the dems have spent their whole lives drooling for socialized medicine.
Does anyone actually think the dems, 2 years out from next election, will suddenly become concerned with what the majority wants?
I damn sure am no serf to them!
Where does that leave us? It leaves us to remember why we got on the Tea Party bandwagon in the first place, for the next 2 years with enough momentum to gain enough majority to over-ride even a RINO POTUS veto of real conservative Bills.
Agree that there is no such thing as a "moderate" Democrat. That said, at the very least, they should be contacted, to remind them of their reelection prospects.
His math is good anyway.
What does a ‘moderate’ socialist tyrant look like, and do they carry any disease?
Only 4 more needed to force a vote.
Don’t forget that to override a veto they will need 2/3rds or 67 votes, not just 61.
Let’s pull together, everyone...we don’t need any negativity, but rather a positive, all together now, attitude and effort.
I agree, that was my point.
With that attitude nothing would ever get accomplished.
I call Bill Nelson's office all the time and stood in front of his office in Tampa on several occasions back during the early work on the ObamaCare legislation...to no avail. But we do it anyway.
And you betcha he will face a very tough race in 2012! Don't be surprised if he decides not to run cause he knows he is on the way out! Florida will have a new Conservative Senator in 2012 to work along side Senator Rubio! :)
At times like these I wish the Senators were appointed by their states.
Casy’s no moderate. He ran on the pro life plank and turns around and votes for this health care bill which will most likely expand publicly funded abortions. He could have cared less about the Stupak amendment. He’s a lefty running on his Daddy’s name.
Good morning Mr. RobertClark :)
Do you think they are awake in D.C. yet? ; }
I hope they heard phones ringing in their dreams, and wake to find that they are ringing STILL!
May God give us strength.
I would imagine that they are attempting to ignore the constant ringing. We all need strength and must continue to push - if not us, whom?
