ABC News Reporting Lott Says He Has Votes to Remain Leader, Will Not Step Down
ABC NEWS Radio Report ^ | December 17, 2002 | Doug Limerick

Posted on 12/17/2002 12:17:43 PM PST by ewing

No text yet, just a radio report at the end of Rush's show.

Must be worried about the Russert report this morning that he is 'Far' from the 26 votes needed for a Senate Caucus victory.

As much outrage that boob has created, I cant help but think this guy is either the dumbest man on Earth, or ignorant beyond all possiblity. That or he is right. Which I cant bring myself to think he is.

The best thing for blacks would be for Lott to stay, he'll be busy overcompensating to prove he has changed.

ABC reported Gore won Florida in 2000.

Those Senators are in their home districts for the holidays. They are getting an earfull from their home bases. Much could change between now and Jan 6. Lott's lot (pardon the pun) isn't set in concrete for him to retain ML.

"Jesse Jackson is on Fox News taking up for Lott. LOL!"

That can't be good news. The only reason that Jesse Jackson would be standing up for Lott would be if there was something in it for Jesse Jackson.

You betcha. That's why this story's been planted. The 'Craps just realized that if they are successful at driving Neville out of SML, they'll lose their biggest lever against Bush.

Sort of like Toricelli. We did such a good job of demonstrating what a crook he is, the 'Craps panicked and pulled him off the ticket. Add one pliable NJSC, and you have a seat held by an ancient 'Crap.

I knew it, I knew it, I knew it!!! Now that they realized that the Republicans might kick Lott out, the Rats are now sticking up for him. They realize that if Lott doesn't quit the Senate, that they are much better off with him still as ML. All the more reason that the GOP has to remove Lott as ML.

Oh Lord. Anytime Jackasson is defending a Republican, you know someone made a deal with the devil. So who's the devil? Lott or Jackson?

Trent Lott is beginning to remind of Hitler in his final days in the bunker, ordering around those imaginary Germany army divisions which no longer existed.

Well, if Jesse gets the Senate to retain Lott at ML, then Jesse and the Black Caucus can force Lott toward their issues (i.e., overcompensation). It is a way for Jesse and the Black Caucus to get the upper hand over Lott and put Lott at a power disadvantage. (Buy out; sell out; shakedown--sounds like the making of a rap song)

This statement probably ensures that the vote will be after Christmas now.

Trent was reeling this morning after that interview last night.

He's telling Shep Smith exactly what Lott has to do to satisfy the blacks.

And he's also saying HIS remarks about New York aren't the same.

HAHAHA.........Smith asks him when he was going to be on O'Reilly.......Jackson is UPSET.

Jackson says today this country is in an upheaval. BAH.

Trent Lott has always been for sale to the highest bidder. It's all about the pork. He left the Rats for the Republicans, he could jump right back if the price is right. He has no principles.

He is NOT really taking up for Lott, he's calling for censure. But we all know the consequences that go along with censure.

Jackson calls President Bush "MR Bush".

Shep is holding Jesse's feet to the fire. Jesse is quoting scripture, for crying out loud.

Jesse Jackson, the biggest Hypocrite of all times, the Rev. Jackson has no place calling for Lott to seek redemption for his actions.

But then, we could all join hands and pray for Lott, ask the Lord to forgive him, ask the Republicans to forgive him, and ask the Blacks to forgive him and push forward..like they did with the most Reverand JJ. Seemed to work for him.

It took a Stupid Party to make and keep Lott Majority Leader until now. It will take an even more Stupid Party to keep him. If they keep him, GOP fundraising will be slammed hard, because few people will want to contribute to a really Stupid Party.

The best thing for blacks would be for Lott to stay, he'll be busy overcompensating to prove he has changed.

The best thing for African-Americans would be to realize why it's in the interest of Jesse Jackson and other power-hungry Democrats to keep them powerless and "on the plantation."

Yep. Lott said he now is for affermative action. (barf)
Time to rally against it.
Right now, I believe the issue is headed for the Supreme Court? If the Supreme Court says it favors one race above another and is unconstitutional, the left wants Washington to over ride the verdict.
Lott should stay , but not as leader right now. He's a beaten dog. Now he's anti-white .

Exactly. When the Rats were calling for Lott's head, they expected the GOP to rally around Lott. When that didn't happen, and they saw signs that Bush was willing to jettison Lott, they changed their tune.

You and I both!! This whole thing makes me so mad and even though I'm ticked all the parties involved - the press, the liberal race baiters from the Congressional Black Caucus, the conservative pundits, etc. - I'm most pissed at Lott. He created this mess.

The rats want Lott to stay as majority leader, therefore he has to become a regular Senator and let somebody with a brain take over.

If he isn't a racist, what the hell was he apologizing for in the first place?.

His pandering to the left as the price of his personal redemption is completely unacceptable.

He is an idiot, a spineless idiot, and it's time for an effective MAJORITY leader to take over.

Minority leaders don't make good majority leaders, they have the wrong mindset.

I said it to Marc Racicot this morning in an email and I'll say it again: unless they get rid of him, not another penny from me. Not ONE cent.

Imagine, Lott having his 'people' do this.
