Republican Senators Declare Themselves Gutless Wonders
The Politico has a story about Republican Senators running away from Sharron Angle. It includes this gem of gutless wonderdom:
Several Senate Republicans told POLITICO that they don’t favor privatizing Social Security, as Angle has supported. Small government conservatives said it doesn’t make sense to eliminate the Energy and Education departments – as she’s called for in the past. And some recoiled at the thought of pulling the United States out of the United Nations, a position Angle has touted.
Really?First of all, no person can be a “small government conservative” without wanting to make government smaller. Getting rid of Energy and Education are long held small government conservative positions. And privatizing social security is a terrifically conservative idea.These are your Republican Senators. These are your allegedly conservative Senators. These are the same Republicans who supported Trey Grayson, Arlen Specter, and Charlie Crist.These are the samel Republicans who even now are supporting Tim Bridgewater and Utah and Jane Norton in Colorado.If you support Mike Lee in Utah, Ken Buck in Colorado, and stand with Sharron Angle, we really can send some small government conservatives to Washington.
