A List of the Cut and Run Senators
Who voted to Cut and Run from Iraq today in the Senate?
I suppose it should be no surprise that, with only two exceptions, it was mostly Democrats. And, sadly, it should be no surprise to any veteran Watcher of the 109th Congress which two "other than" Senators voted to support Francois Kerry's idea to run home with our tails between our legs, ala Vietnam(this time voting on the Carl Levin amendment).
Of course, one of those Senators was "Jumpin' Jim" Jeffords of Vermont. He of pretending to be an "Independent", but who was always more of a Democrat Party supporter than anything else. Yes, "Jumpin' Jim" voted to show the yellow feather.
And, predictably is that Party traitor, that whiner that no one will support him consequently, that supreme RINO, Lincoln "But what about me?" Chafee, of Rogue's Island... uh, I meant Rhode Island.
So, there you have it. The one "Republican" that the Democrats can always count on to support their every move has, once again, supplicated his country's interests to the anti-American left.
Lincoln "I never met a tax I didn't want to raise" Chafee has slithered up to the Michael Moore wing of the Democratic Party and offered his support for their campaign of self-loathing and immolation.
THIS man is why none of us should give money to the GOP directly. Give, instead, to the candidates you support instead of the GOP itself. Washington understands cash. If they find their usually free donating members suddenly holding back because of RINOS like Chafee, maybe they will take hold of some of these leftists in Patriot's clothing and either dump them or conform them to the ideas a real American should sponsor?
Chafee must be defeated. And, in his case, I would rather have a Democrat in his chair than a putative Republican that never, ever supports his Party in anything whatsoever.
Here is the full list of those who wish to replicate our humiliation during Vietnam with their vote to cut and run...
