Wimpy Republicans will pass START to go home for Christmas earlier
National Review ^

Posted on 12/21/2010 3:15:32 PM PST by Windy City Conservative

“[Senators] want to go home,” Burr said. “When you got a process that has a definitive end, you use slippage backward. That’s why all of these things were orchestrated to come up at this time of year.” Burr would have preferred to see the debate continue next session, since “there is no compelling reason that this needs to be done right now.”


TOPICS: Government; Russia
KEYWORDS: 111th; gop; rinos; senate; start; whiners

Why the hurry to get it passed in a couple of days? Wait until January and do it right.

If they’re going to pass it they should just leave and let democrats do it on their own.

Yeah, we cannot expect them to allow trivial little matters like national defense get in the way of their cushy vacations.

Why call Republicans "wimpy"?

Isn't that one of those things that goes without saying?

As the article states, McConnell isn’t even whipping the vote; he’s not even talking to his guys. Probably too busy booking his plane tickets.

To keep up the appearance that someone in DC cares about the people and the nation. With two parties, everyone can believe that there is a champion and a villain.

The truth is that both parties are full of villains with very few (if any) champions. We don’t need term limits anymore. We need guillotines.

To busy hiding under his desk. NO BACKBONE. This is where we need men like the HAMMER or Ms. Bachmann. I don’t think we have even ONE senator with their backbone.

I think I`ll get a list of the traitors in that worthless party and, next election, I`ll find a way to help the rat who runs against them. I see no difference between the rats and the crats and if thats what it takes to clear that party, the one we Conservatives are told we can`t do without, then the faithful party-crats can kiss my @ss and deal!

“[Senators] want to go home,” Burr said.

So you will vote for anything at all???? Apparently YOU will since you also thought repeal of no mos in the military was such a hot idea.

Look...just earmark me in a couple mil and I don’t give a flyin eff what y’all do.

UnFREAKIN believable.

Stupid, because this can work both ways. Democrats want to go home too. Just tell them you’re not going to budge, and you’re prepared to sit here as long as it takes.

At some point they realize you’re serious, and they give it up so they can go home for Xmas.

Obama has gotten EVERYTHING he wants by demanding, pitching erudite hissy fits and talking about how it (whatever it is) has to be done RIGHT NOW, NOW, NOW, HURRY, RUSH, RUSH, HURRY, HURRY, HURRY! - Godspeed to the new TEA Party people coming in and hope they stick to it.

“Before I was up for reelection in November, I faced the vote in committee [to approve New START],” Isakson recalled. “From a political standpoint, it would have been easy to just say no. But [supporting START] was the right thing to do. And I got almost 60 percent of the vote after having voted for it in the committee. The worst decision would have been to go back on what we’ve already done.”

To think that I was one of the 60% that voted for Johnny boy. Never again...

Look at the photo from the article, specifically the white-haired fellow with the smirk on his face. Can anyone take that character seriously? He wants his goodies, now and so do his pals. They don't care about anything else, and they don't need to they've been there so long. It's way past time for them to retire. Let's help them do that.

Then RESIGN!

Invest in guillotines because that is where Mr Burr and his ilk will face the music. These worthless dictators always end up there.

Next time a blowhard like Sean Hannity tells you to “vote GOP and not conservative independent”....vote for the conservative independent

Also, people who state “Third parties take away votes from GOP” keep the GOP liberal. If the GOP knew that a independent conservative could beat them in an election...they get conservative

He is a fool. This is from his press release:

“Verification is better than no verification at all; that inspections and transparency are what prohibit things like what happened on 9/11 from ever happening again...”

Well everyone, the elites have split us. We have talk of a third party now. This means zer0, democRATs and RINOs are re-elected. I can sense this was all done by design, and the media fell right in line to report it, while we forget, Conservatives should be retaking the Republican party. Zer0, democRATS, and RINOs win, the American people are being played like sheep. Unless you want to FIGHT...Click FReeperPAC above the owner's statement (at top of Latest Articles page) and learn how to FIGHT BACK, if you want to fight.
