Dems voting with 'Pukes on Fast and Furious - MUST BE STOPPED

Anyone have a list? These people need to be intimidated to the gates of hell just like the NRA is doing.

They have plenty of evidence that this is nothing more that a political hit job, each one of them need to be put on notice that if they side with Issa then they will face a primary challenge and outside money with THE ONLY goal to have them replaced.

With the SC decision and this, they must understand that it is DAMN GO TIME!

Tomorrow needs to be HELL day for the Republicans and weak Democrats.

1. Agreed...

 

I respect the fact that Democrats are not always lock-and-step with one another but on an issue like this they need to be unified. Steny Hoyer, where the fuck are you? If the NRA is breathing down their necks then they need to get a "pair", if you get my drift.

This whole issue is contrived. This has never been about a secret conspiracy to impose new gun control laws. This has always been a diversionary tactic by Issa and his henchmen to attack Holder and hopefully tarnish Obama.

Every Republican elected official and partisan have been ordered by the grand poo-bah of hate, to do everything they can to prevent Obama's re-election. They hate America and will do anything to ensure their vision of "America for the 1%" endures. Mark my words, they are unified like nothing we have seen before.

2. a contempt decision from this Congress means nothing

it is even less credible than the Clinton impeachment, which cost the GOP a number of House seats.

3. Here's some of them

Reps. John Barrow (D-Ga.), Nick Rahall (D-W.Va.), Collin Peterson (D-Minn.), Jim Matheson (D-Utah) and Mike McIntyre (D-N.C.) announced they will vote to hold Holder in contempt of Congress tomorrow.

6. Thanks, I will be sending emails to each of them saying I support a primary challenge

Supporting Issa means supporting a proven liar.

8. send them a copy of the fortune article

tell them if they're side with Issa, they're going to look unbelievably stupid when it all comes out in the wash.

12. If it doesn't sway voters then it is not a real threat

the NRA can pressure these guys because they understand the voting demographics of each district. And these Congressmen are also keenly aware what is important to the voters in their districts.

Outside voices are irrelevant - these politicians, like any politician, will do what it takes to keep their supporters happy.

They don't what you or I think. We are irrelevant to them.

13. So instead of standing strong with Democratic principles

they opt for being pushed around by the NRA - AND being pushed around by the Republicans.

It's a two-fer.

dirty-30 dems.

grrrrr
