There are a lot of pretenders to the conservative Presidential nominee throne. One is Mitt Romney, whom we exposed as an America-hating, tax-wasting phony.
Now, there’s Kansas Republican Sam Brownback, or as he shall now be called here: Sam Brown-BACKBONELESS.
First, he appeared on “FOX News Sunday” a week ago. The topic was the then-just-released Iraq Study Group report, and Brown-BACKBONELESS was supposed to be the conservative Republican. He was on to be the opposition to the Surrender Group report.
But, NO. In fact, he agreed with far-left Democratic Senator Chris Dodd that the report was “good.” He said he agreed with the report and its conclusions/recommendations and supported them. Lost my vote.
Then, there’s his latest pushover move. Yesterday, Brown-BACKBONELESS pulled his hold on the Bush nomination of far-left Judge Janet Neff to U.S. Federal Court. Brown-BACKBONELESS put a hold on Neff because she attended (some say, Presided Over) a lesbian wedding of a friend in Massachusetts. But now, Brown-BACKBONELESS is backing down. And the real reason why he dropped his hold is interesting.
He claims that the lesbian wedding thing is not that bad for a would-be federal judge . . . “not that bad” because he’s taken a lot of heat over it, and, hey, he wants to be President, and now wants to do “the right thing” and allow a vote.
But here’s the real reason:
Domino’s Pizza founder and billionaire Tom Monaghan is bankrolling Brown-BACKBONELESS’ campaign for President. And Monaghan wants a vote on Bush’s companion nomination for the U.S. Court of Appeals, his friend U.S. Attorney Stephen Murphy III a/k/a “Abu Porno“–a man who is apparently addicted to porn (on the tax-paid job) and who is tight with a number of Islamic terrorists (many of whom he’s tipped off and allowed to leave the country). (Full details here.)
Bush nominated Murphy–NOT a conservative–as a compromise candidate (and sop to Monaghan) along with Neff–also a compromise candidate, in order to get Democrats to vote for them.
While Brown-BACKBONELESS had a hold on Neff’s nomination, there wasn’t a chance in hell that porn-addict, friend-of-terrorist-money-launderes Stephen Murphy would get a vote either.
But now, he will (assuming Bush renominates both of them). And Brown-BACKBONELESS will be 100% behind this soft-on-terror ignoramus candidate for judge because he wants to keep Murphy-ally Monaghan’s money flowing. We wonder if Brown-BACKBONELESS agrees with Monaghan’s new illegal alien legal defense program at Ave Maria Law School.
Is this the kind of guy you want as President?–A guy who thinks the Iraq Study Group report is good and thinks Bush should follow its recommendations, a guy who backs down on liberal judges that support gay marriage, a guy who is supporting the nomination of a federal prosecutor who is soft on terrorists and allows them to leave the country, a guy who takes money from a man funding lawyers for illegal aliens?
That’s not the guy I’ll ever be voting for. We need a President who has principles, who has a backbone. And that guy is NOT Senator Sam Brown-BACKBONELESS.
Bush must renominate both Neff and Murphy a/k/a “Abu Porno” in January, if he wants a vote on them. We hope he will have the good sense not to do so. Call the White House and demand that he doesn’t.
