Lisa Murkowski to her fellow Republicans: It makes no sense to make this attack on women
Hot Air ^ | April 6, 2012 | Tina Korbe

Posted on 04/06/2012 2:46:28 PM PDT by QT3.14

WOW. Look, I respect that Alaska Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski values her moderate reputation, that she’s a kind person who seeks to facilitate conversation across the aisle, that she doesn’t want to offend her friends who are Democrats, but c’mon. She’s going to provide cover for Democratic rhetoric that Republicans are waging a “war on women”? Oh, I’m sorry, excuse me. Murkowski didn’t say Republicans are “waging a war.” She said they’re “making an attack.” Honestly, I can’t even figure out who she’s pandering to, other than to Democrats. From HuffPo:

Thank you Murky.

Americans need a reminder of what RINOs are all about.

OK, Lisa, show me the attack. Who’s doing it? What are they saying? Or are you just believing the dem talking points and that they are the words of Pubs?

and did the small group of GOP’ers sitting at her feet for their lesson, get up and promptly smack her across the chops? See? This is regeneration of the crap that Sarah P took down in Alaska. Sarah took on the RINOs in ALASKA by beating Mrky’s Dad and it has been total pay-back ever since. Lisa should have been trounced in her WRITE-IN! campaign for Senate after she lost R primary. She should have been denied all committee assignments. But the GOPe funded her. She has voted anti-GOP consistently. All out of spite against Palin. Which side is good and which side is evil? Choose. I often feel Palin is the new Joan d’ Arc. Totally devoted women sold out by their own “people”

Lisa is only in the Republican party because her father was. She is as liberal as any other Democrat.

From Wikipedia

"Lisa Ann Murkowski (born May 22, 1957) is the senior United States Senator from the State of Alaska and a member of the Republican Party. She was appointed to the Senate in 2002 by her father, Governor Frank Murkowski. After losing a Republican primary in 2010, she became the second person ever to win a U.S. Senate election through write-in votes."

A RINO is a person in complete agreement with liberal Democrats on political issues, but regards them as too lower class to associate with socially. Though if they have money they are far more acceptable to RINOs than conservatives, that RINOs think of as “country bumpkins”.

Back in the 1950’s and 1960’s, they were the “country club Republicans”, who were quite comfortable being the minority party, as long as their personal investments were secured by healthy government contracts, they would not make too many waves, nor vigorously oppose the liberal Democrat agenda.

Finally, after all these years, the Tea Party has come along to purge as many of these parasites as possible from the party. But it is not an easy task, as the RINOs have surrounded themselves with a wealthy phalanx of lobbyists and Beltway Bandits, willing to support them as long as a quid pro quo is given.

At the very least, she should have lost her seniority after her stunt in ‘10 against Joe Miller who won the Republican primary.

I think she has cut deals with the liberals...how else do you explain her election...on write-ins.

She will continue to sabotage the Republican Party from the inside, just like the rest of the "Cocktail Hour Republicans" who only care about running with and be ACCEPTED by the "In Crowd" in D.C.

It's hard to deal with people who skirt the rules and have no integrity.

Please don’t assume all Alaskans voted for this woman. She was elected by a coalition of democratic socialists (especially the union thugs and natives) and the Alaskan Republican Party hacks. As Dennis Prager would say it was a moment of “clarity” for me. I changed my voter registration from republican to independent as soon as her corrupt write in election was certified.

What Murkowski is doing in Alaska after being elected as a write-in candidate is a preview of what Romney Presidency would be like.

"that she’s a kind person who seeks to facilitate conversation across the aisle, that she doesn’t want to offend her friends who are Democrats"

I stopped reading right there because the nausea was threatening to overcome me.

This big, brawny, manlike ilberal female seems like the type of R who's right up Romney's alley. She'll probably get a cabinet post if he wins.

This is just silly: the “war on women” fraud is nothing more than a Goebbels type BIG LIE, pronounced by a demagogue president and repeated by his amen corner in the Democrat Party and the press. The real war is, in fact Obama’s overt war on the Catholic Church. Many Republicans believe it is unjust for the state to obliterate religious freedom by COMPELLING religious institutions to act against their conscience. Catholic resistance to buying birth and abortion pills for other people is hardly a “war”. Women can obtain this stuff now. No one stops them.

She is a female mitt romney... she is so far to the left that she gets Christmas cards from putin... she is actually a dim but she runs as an “r” because she can't cut it as a “d”. She and mitt are not too far to the left for the dims... they fit in that way perfectly... but much like Conservatives... the dims just don't like either of them and never have.
