GOP Traitors: Graham, Snowe, Collins, Brown

Have you seen the latest list of traitorous votes by ostensibly Republican Senators?

The FINREG bill would not have passed, but for three Northeastern US so-called Republicans in the Senate:

-Olympia Snowe, R-ME
-Susan Collins, R-ME
-Scott Brown, R-MA

Then there's the Progressive Republican Senator from South Carolina, Lindsay Graham. He voted in committee for ultra-liberal Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan.

What's with these Senators?

I had lunch with a conservative friend yesterday, and we discussed these turncoats. Both he and I are more independent conservatives than Republicans. So to us, these Senators, and, more importantly, the Senate Minority Leader, Mitch McConnell have displayed a total lack of understanding of the desires and anger of the broad independent middle group of US voters.

If I were McConnell, I'd be shoving these four out of the party if they didn't vote along conservative (party) lines.

What's the benefit of having Snowe, Collins and Brown if they bolt on key legislation. Key bad legislation, at that!

What's Graham doing voting with the liberals for perhaps the most liberal snake ever nominated to the court? A purposely pro-Federalist, anti-States, anti-military nominee.

How'd she even get by the Judicial Committee? Democrats of a bygone era would have quashed her nomination simply on her record of anti-American behaviors and utterances.

Really, does it make any sense to have these liberals allegedly in the GOP camp? Caucusing with them, only to break ranks on the big votes?

Could these Senators get elected as Democrats? Doubtful.

Which brings me to McConnell, about whom, and whose failures, I'll write in an upcoming post.
