Well, look at it this way. We need his vote against the Healthcare disaster that is waiting in the wings. Censor him now and he’ll throw his weight to the other side to be a “bi-partisan” politician. But later, let him know in no uncertain times that we conservatives are watching him and his re-election campaign will be in full gear after the 2012 elections. He has to see that people are fed up with RINOs, so we need to encourage him to stand with us and remind him of the consequences, if he falters.
That’s what I’m thinking. He’s got five more years I think until his re-election race. We need to “keep him in the fold” until then, but then he’s fair game and we do our best to replace him with an actual conservative Republican.
Joe Wilson can say whatever he wants. The Republicans in South Carolina have heard enough out of fancy pants. Besides Lindsey is a white guy and has said he hates white guys being in the party.
