Barrasso is a No

Wyoming Senator John Barrasso is saying he’ll vote no on Holder.   The reason?

As Wyoming’s United States Senator, I take very seriously the responsibility to protect and defend our right to keep and bear arms. President Obama has every right to nominate Eric Holder to be Attorney General. I have the duty to closely review the nominee’s qualifications and philosophy on issues that are important to all Americans.

Thank you Senator.

  1. Thank God that someone is taking his 2nd A. stance seriously. It seemed that many were not taking it seriously and only worried about the pardons he had a hand in.

  2. Those are issues that resonate with other people, and that doesn’t make them any less valuable. If you truly oppose him, don’t discount the pardon controversy. Recognize that other people have other interests. If you really wanted him defeated, you wouldn’t get upset that they don’t care as much about the same things you do (gun rights), you’d find a way to promote their concerns, too. That way it looks like broad opposition instead of just one issue.

  3. I was just having a conversation today about how I want to head up to Wyoming and check out the conditions… this just makes me want to do it more.

    I hope the people of Wyoming appreciate Barrasso, I’d gladly trade them McCain if they don’t.

  4. The problem with Wyoming is that if push ever comes to shove I suspect they’ll get crushed like a bug by the feds. With such a small, sparse population they’re not really needed by politicians, and seeing as the Supreme Court seems to be exclusively made up of people who went to Ivy League law schools (and Stanford) and don’t have any trial experience, only a respect for states’ rights likely protects Wyoming.
