Except for Dreier, it was the usual set of RINO trash. I don’t know what got into Dreier, but as it was noted, you can’t punish him because he’s retiring. We’ll probably see some silly “primary Dreier!!” threads anyway, like when people wanted to “take out” Larry Craig and Bob Turner, not bothering to check up and realize they were already gone in November.
Bass and Dent have always been backstabbing RINOs, and have needed to be purged for sometime. I’m particularly irked by Bass’ “comeback” on the wave of the 2010 GOP gains, because he won thanks to the tea party enviroment but can now return to his usual ways of thrwating everything they believe in. Fortunately I think there’s been a changing of the guard in the NH GOP leadership, so it might be possible to finally mount a credible challenger to these elistist RINO turd.
Biggert is worthless but is geninuely “moderate. Unfortunately abortion is one of the issues where she usually sides with the left. We’ve also been trying to get rid of her for years, but she looks like a saint next to...
Bob Dold. Et tu, Bob? I endorsed this SOB last time and gave him the benefit of the doubt in the hopes that he was telling the truth about being “middle of the road” on abortion and geninuely “moderate”. Instead, he quickly showed his true colors and morphed into Mark Kirk Jr. Another abortion loving Planned Parenthood yes-man. After Porter, Kirk, and Dold, that’s the third phony “Republican moderate” in that district. I could care less about him now. If I had to pick one seat the RATs “take back” one seat from our 2010 gains, this jerk would be the first to go. I’m sure some freepers will lecture me about how the RAT candidate is more liberal and blah blah blah, that’s true, but at least with the RAT you know what you’re getting and he won’t lie to your face about his agenda. I am sick and tired of abortion-loving socialist “Republicans” flat out lying to conservatives in Illinois to get their support. I have less respect for Dold than I do even worst RINOs who at least make it clear of their contempt for conservatives. This guy and the combiner liberal he spawned from, Kirk, will laughably claim they’re “Socially moderate” and the media will cover for them every time.
Bono Mack, same deal, always been a squishy “moderate” Republican but lately she’s morphed into a full fledged liberal RINO, it just took a lot longer than it did with Dold. Sonny is spinning in his grave. I really don’t think her current “conservative” husband is bothered by her liberal beliefs though, and I’m guessing he will likewise become a RINO if we elect him to the Senate, though his House record has been fairly reliably “conservative” (you heard it here, first). Both of them seem to enjoy getting invited to the usual insider cocktail parties where liberal elites will heap praise of them for “growing” in office and standing up to the mean, nasty conservatives. Probably has the same sense of family entitlement that Bass has. I’m not sure what her seat looks like after redistricting, but it would be nice to replace Mary with a decent Republican.
According to the 08 POTUS numbers her district is pretty much the same politically. GOP leaning, narrowly carried by comrade Osama in his cali landslide. Her current 45th was 52-47 Osama and her new 36th is’s 50-47.
