Itís a RINO Stampede in the U.S. Senate Now
DB Daily update ^ | January 27, 2020 | by David Blackmon

Posted on 01/27/2020 3:27:44 PM PST by Hojczyk

Equally predictable have been the reactions by the three most likely RINO Usual Suspects, Mitt Romney, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski.

Romney, who has been actively looking for any pretense to side with his Democrat pals, jumped almost immediately, telling a CNN reporter early Monday morning this:

“I can’t begin to tell you how John Bolton’s testimony would ultimately play on a final decision but it’s relevant and therefore I’d like to hear it.”

Ok, yeah, sure, uh-huh. Romney, by the way, refused to say whether or not he would also support calling witnesses the Trump defense would like to see, like Joe Biden, Hunter Biden and Pencil Neck. Mitt gonna Mitt. Which is kind of like saying a dog is going to lick its own nether regions.

Next up was Susan Collins, the terminally annoying Senator from Maine. As is her habit, Collins issued a statement that had been carefully crafted by her staff talking points monkeys, which revealed her own weak-kneed posture and smeared her GOP colleagues by claiming “a number” of them were having second thoughts as well:

“The reports about John Bolton’s book strengthen the case for witnesses and have prompted a number of conversations among my colleagues,” Collins said in a statement.

Collins, who unlike Romney is up for re-election this year, apparently believes she finds strength by pretending to hide among “numbers.” She’s wrong.

Murkowski did what Murkowski pretty much always does, and vainly attempted to find a way to triangulate her way through it with this mushy non-answer:

“I stated before that I was curious as to what John Bolton might have to say … I’ve also said there is an appropriate time for us to evaluate whether we need additional information —that time is almost here,” Murkowski said in a statement.

Republicans in Utah and Alaska can surely do better than Murkowski and Mitt Rino.

Meet with Senator Manchin and see if he wants witnesses?

When the vote is taken, impeachment will be rejected by a bipartisan majority. Those in the minority will be all D. There's no spin for that.

And this is the reason that you don’t want the “process” to get strung out since this sort of BS is entirely predictable

Shoulda been dismissed outright at the jump

No amount of sensible evidence from the President’s attornies is going to mean anything - the Left will dream up some new phony crap and sling it

Romney, if you want witnesses, the first one we will call is your associate that worked for Burisma.

And your law firm that worked for Burisma. And aldo represented Vindman, Strzok, Page, Hill....

We will find your link to the corruption Mitt!!!

And around noon the NYTs admitted that they hadn’t seen anything. They got it from a blind source...

I like to refer to these ones as The Special Little Asshole Caucus. I really can’t think of a better way to describe them.

And if it wasn’t these 4, it would be some other 4, Marco, because there is no shortage of wannabe special little assholes in the GOP.

I’m sorry for my language.

Man, I loathe these jerks. LOATHING!

It often feels like “our team” are the washington generals being outplayed once again by the harlem globetrotters.

I still put this all on McConnell.

He should insist on being the first Senator to speak for Republicans (like Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer do) to set the tone, and then dare his Republican members to contradict him.

But he won't do even that little bit.

If Romney and his never-Trump pals see this as the first opportunity to re-seize control of the GOP from Trump supporters he is seriously misreading the situation. Those days of GOP elite along with the neo-cons are never coming back. Any attempt by him o call Bolton will harden our position against he and his cronies.

But we were assured by the those in the know that Mitch would handle this business, no witnesses, no documents, we were heading for home standing up.

What happened?

Can any Mainers here tell us realistically how much Collins has to go along with Dems in a reelection year in order to be reelected?

Sent Romney an email and told him if he really thinks it’s a good idea to let the Democrats turn one spectacle into two, by design, he should join that party as he fits better there.
