TEA PARTY ALERT! Ayotte, Graham, Toomey and Flake Among 16 GOP Gun Control Sellouts

PHP4C5361E6A2DFDThis is what I’m saying to you nutty Republicans.

Sixteen GOP senators voted this morning to prevent Rand Paul, Mike Lee and Ted Cruz from filibustering the Democrat push for new gun control legislation. Mark my words, one of these gomers will be on Fox News tonight telling us not to worry, we can still hunt.

No one has even READ this bill!  

Today’s defeat, folks, was a RINO-orchestrated intraparty power play.

Okay, Susan Collins we understand, her lips move when she reads to herself, but Tea Party-supported Pat Toomey, joining with Joe Manchin?

Hot Air:

… Democrats voting against proceeding: Just two, Mark Pryor and Mark Begich. Everyone else in the caucus except for Frank Lautenberg, who was absent, voted yes. A message to red-state Dems (and aisle-crossing Republicans) from the NRA:

We hope the Senate will replace the current provisions of S. 649 with language that is properly focused on addressing mental health inadequacies; prosecuting violent criminals; and keeping our kids safe in their schools. Should it fail to do so, the NRA will make an exception to our standard policy of not “scoring” procedural votes and strongly oppose a cloture motion to move to final passage of S. 649.

Whole lotta NRA ratings are going down tomorrow. Toomey’s reportedly telling friends that he hopes for six to eight Republican votes to beat the next filibuster on cloture (although Mark Kirk appears to be the only sure thing right now). That’s possible, but is it possible to get to 60 with “only” that number of Republicans? You’d need at least five even if the Democratic caucus votes unanimously, and that’s a big if given the pressure on Pryor, Baucus, Landrieu, and Begich to block the bill. I can even almost imagine a scenario where Reid gets 60 votes for cloture and then the bill fails on the final up-or-down vote. There’ll be plenty of centrists, starting with the red-state Dems I just named, who’ll be looking to please both sides by casting a yes vote on cloture to beat the GOP’s filibuster and then a no on the bill itself to prove their pro-gun bona fides. If the GOP votes no as a bloc on the final vote, you’d need just six Democrats to join them to kill this thing. But Reid won’t allow that humiliation to happen. Presumably, if he knows he can’t get to 50, he’ll pull the bill. Stay tuned. [More]

Look, we don’t have a bill yet, but ANY EFFORT to further the liberal agenda to infringe upon The Right to Bear Arms, PERIOD, is a sellout. When are you Republicans going to get smart and take away these RINO’s right to junket?

Conservatives need to mount a national campaign to defeat Republicans who cave to the RINO leadership in both houses.

Jeff Flake? Was that the best you Arizonans could do? Sarah Palin even supported the guy.  Sarah, Sarah, Sarah! When they have a face that can double as a can opener, it’s time to rethink the endorsement.

    The 16 Turncoats have made their bed and we better make them lie in it. They have turned their back on their constituents and that is inexcusable.

    Right on!!!!
    These self serving wimps need to retire (fat chance) and if not, we need good strong conservatives to run against them. Palin ran against a corrupt Republican Govenor in Alaska and won…..
    Let’s do it again…..we need some strong gutsy canidates that are not afraid of the machine.
