(2010) Burr Shocks Home Boys with RINO Vote


December 19, 2010

Senator Richard Burr shocked his district today when he voted in favor of the repeal of “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.”  This further solidifies his official Conservative Shepherd status of RINO.  He made no previous indication to his constituents of his intent to support DADT.  Our “Republican in Name Only” explained his reasoning with the following confusing statement:

“It’s just that we’ve had a generational change and I have vehemently objected to making a policy change of this magnitude at this time. When cloture was passed, that settled that,” Burr said. “It’s not accepted practice anywhere in our society, and it only makes sense. But again, I was vehemently opposed to the timing of this.”

Anyone in our reading audience who can explain what he meant by this statement, please enlighten us.
Rather than go into a rant over Burr’s abandonment of Forsyth County conservative values, we shall let the people speak for us.  The following comments are samples of public reaction to Burr’s vote.

“It’s just that we’ve had a generational change and I have vehemently objected to making a policy change of this magnitude at this time. When cloture was passed, that settled that,” Burr said. “It’s not accepted practice anywhere in our society, and it only makes sense. But again, I was vehemently opposed to the timing of this.”
*********************************
No wonder he had such a hard time getting reelected. He will have a harder time in 2016.

Might be time for a primary challenge…..

He will lose the primary for this.

Too bad no one challenged Burr this year. We have to wait six long years to get rid of him.

I knew he was a tad jelly spine on immigration. Thought he was OK on DADT.

That’s it for me – I’ll vote for the D in 2016.
At least when I get stabed in the back I’ll know it was the enemy.

This is messed up. They really heard nothing on election day.

[Response] Which is why he felt safe in screwing the people.

“They really heard nothing on election day.
Oh I think they heard us alright. They just plain out don’t give a damn.

“Thats it for me – I’ll vote for the D in 2016.”
[Response]Instead, why not recruit a primary challenger and get rid of him. North Carlina used to produce the likes of John East And Jesse Helms. It can do a lot better than Burr.

Let Burr hear from you. Make him afraid to betray us next time.

Burr is not just a knave for doing this. He is a political fool as well. He had zero to gain in North Carolina by doing this. Even Lindsey Graham voted against it.

I thought this guy was a conservative.

Too bad no one challenged Burr this year. We have to wait six long years to get rid of him.

The debates between Burr and Marshall were interesting in that they chose two different methods of portraying the same stance on most issues.

Why do the Republicans always let the dimwits control the dialogue?

“Why do the Republicans always let the dimwits control the dialogue?”
[Response] Because a lot of republicans in congress are ALSO SOCIALISTS, now do you understand?

To the Republicans and Democrats who voted yes for this bill, you have been warned: You will lose your seat at the election in 2012. (To those who are not up for election in 2012 –an elephant never forgets.)

So we most certainly have documented proof that we have 65 heretics in the Senate. I really feel sorry for the Marines and other military men and officers that will take the brunt of this vile law. …very sad day for our military and our country.

Republicans who voted for this are on the “target list” for their next elections.

The people have spoken.
