The title is my version of story by Nicola Menzie at The Christian Post.
There are 47 Republican Senators. Here are the names of the 28 Republican Senators you should remember when they come up for re-election. EVERY ONE OF THEM IS A RINO AND EVERY ONE OF THEM VOTED FOR THE DEBT CEILING RAISING BILL!
Please note the four Republican Senators on this list in blue--Brown, Corker, Lugar and Snowe. They are the ones up for re-election in 2012 who voted "yes" on this bill. The worst is Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA). He's voted 90% of the time with Democrats and has been an utter disaster this year as Senator. Brown should be running as a Democrat. There should be a move in the GOP to force him out. Lugar isn't any better, being an Open Borders RINO. I'm not familiar with Sen. Corker. Sen. Snowe is no better than Brown. She's a liberal masquerading as a Republican.
Three Republican Senators are retiring--Hutchison, Kyl and Enzi. All three are RINOs and all three voted for this bill:
Enzi (R-WY) Retiring
Hutchison (R-TX) Retiring
Kyl (R-AZ) Retiring
Now for the 19 Republicans who voted "no". Before getting too excited about Graham et al, understand that almost all of these are RINOs--phony Republicans--and only voted "no" because it was "a safe vote" because they knew there weren't enough votes to stop it as there are hardly any Conservatives in the Senate. Rubio is being groomed as the Republican Nominee's VP for next year and didn't dare go against the Tea Party and other Conservative voters. He's a RINO trying to look like a Conservative as we've pointed out time and time again here on The Dave Levine Show. Hatch (due to his anti-Conservative votes on extending The Patriot Act, etc.) is in a tough re-election vs Rep. Jason Chaffetz next year and needs to get Conservative voters behind him:
With only 3 Republican RINOs up for reelection next year, Conservative activists should turn their sights to booting as many of the 16 Democrat Senators (not retiring) up for reelection as possible--Ben Nelson (NE), Bill Nelson (FL), Feinstein, Brown, Cantwell, Cardin, Carper, Casey, Gillibrand, Klobuchar, Manchin, McCaskill, Menendez, Stabenow, Tester and Whitehouse. Of these, the most vulnerable are McCaskill, Menendez, Casey, Ben Nelson and Tester. Tester won his last election by less than a point. McCaskill angered Tea Partiers and other Conservatives in Missouri with he liberal voting, particularly her opposition to Prop C--the anti-Obamacare initiative that won last November by over 70%. Menendez is a reconquista who values illegal aliens more than he does citizens. But New Jersey is a liberal state so beating him won't be easy. Ben Nelson angered Nebraskans by backing Obamacare. Town Hall Patriots says, "Pundits and analysts have suggested Nelson will be one of the most vulnerable incumbents in 2012 after he secured deals to exempt Nebraska from new Medicaid payments, ease excise taxes on home state health insurance companies, and broker abortion deals in the Senate healthcare bill."
Five Democrat Senators have announced they won't run for reelection--Akaka, Bingaman, Conrad, Kohl and Webb. Of these, Conrad, Kohl and Webb's seats are most vulnerable. Wisconsin has gone red. The unions have lost power there so Kohl's seat could go to a Conservative. VA is purple and as long as the Republican opponent isn't "Macaca" George Allen, there's a good chance the Republican in VA will win. Conservatives have been eyeing Conrad's seat in North Dakota for some time.
UPDATE FROM 8-3-11: I'll be posting something on that subject--"weeding out the RINOs"--in an upcoming post with reference to an angry Senator Jim DeMint.
My thanks to Town Hall Patriots for a great post.
