Vice President To Attend Fundraiser For Landrieu

Source: TPM



NICK MARTIN 11:30 AM EST, SATURDAY JANUARY 26, 2013

Vice President Joe Biden is scheduled to attend a fundraiser for Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) on Saturday in New Orleans, according to the White House.

Tickets for the event, held at the Ritz-Carlton New Orleans, reportedly range from $250 to $2,500.

Landrieu, who is running for a fourth term next year, is one of a number of red state Democrats who have yet to take a position on the White House push for universal background checks on firearms purchases.

Biden, meanwhile, has been the face of that push, travelling to another red state, Virginia, on Friday to make the case for background checks and other gun control laws in the wake of the Newtown, Conn., school massacre.

1. They're letting Joe go to New Orleans during Mardi Gras?

2. Louisiana GOP

The morons at the LAGOP sent out an email blast this week urging their minions to call Landrieu's office and withdraw the invitation because Biden wants to regulate firearms. Baton Rouge and New Orleans are at the top of the list for murders and firearm assaults and at the bottom of the list for education and healthcare, and all those morons are worried about is keeping gun manufacturers happy and prosperous.

And to top it off, Governor Jindal is making the state the poster child for bad Republican policies with wholesale changes to get in line with Republican ideology to favor the wealthy at the expense of the disadvantaged. My prediction: Jindal's Alfred E. Neumann face will be all over the media this week to cash in on the Super Bowl exposure.

6. Why do I have a feeling that moron Jindal will run for President?

He is certainly dense enough to believe he is fit for office.
and now he is all over the news positioning himself as the voice of moderate Republicans.

8. Whatever else we might say about Jindal, he is neither a moron nor

dense. That is what makes him particularly dangerous.

Don't take your eye off of him.

3. Deal for her vote?

I'm guessing this is part of getting blue dogs on board for gun safety.

4. Makes sense.....


And as much as I get frustrated with blue dog Dems at times, having any seat in the hands of a blue dog is still far better than it being held by a tea-bagger.

7. Probably not

more likely the White House is supporting her because they are very concerned about being able to keep control of the Senate in 2014.

If Landrieu votes for gun control, she will lose the seat in 2014 to a Republican.
