Once again Dick Lugar pulls out the RINO horn and breaks with Republicans
by Trish Turner
President Obama’s nominee to be Attorney General Eric Holder’s top deputy at the Justice Department crashed into a Republican roadblock in the U.S. Senate on Monday, garnering just 50 votes, 10 short of the number needed to break a GOP-led filibuster. Dick Lugar of Indiana was the lone Republican to support the nomination. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., switched his vote at the last minute to ‘no’ in order to have the vote reconsidered at a later date.
No higher crime can be committed by a RINO
James Cole, a veteran Washington attorney nominated in May, had been serving in the position since late December courtesy of a presidential recess appointment, one that expires at the end of the current session of Congress. And despite the bipartisan support of eight former attorneys general, Republicans remained steadfast in their opposition, though nothing about Monday night’s vote changes Cole’s temporary job status.
The Rino List
From backing the DREAM Act to supporting President Obama’s crippling START Treaty with Russia, Dick Lugar has had a checkered past with Conservative thought and policy. Maybe if he had spent less time golfing with the President he would have had the time to look through these disastrous bills. There is now hope.
In January, RINO Hunters in Indiana gathered to decide on someone to run against Lugar, and Indiana State Treasurer Richard Mourdock now is challenging Dick Lugar in the 2012 Senate run. Richard Mourdock’s campaign site has a wonderful YouTube video with damning comments falling from the lips of no less than our own Commander-in-Chief, Barack Hussein Obama, of policy shaping relationship between himself and good ‘ole Lugar.
Obama’s Favorite Republican Senator RINO Dick Lugar
Richard Lugar even went so far as to return the slobbering fanboyism by thanking Obama for his outreach to Republicans via a Huffington Post puff piece. Wow, talk about senile. We need Richard Mourdock in the Senate! Head over to www.richardmourdock.com to check out the awesome campaign site, and start believing. We hunting down Lugar in 2012!
