    Is that the right clip? Didn’t hear anything about an AWB.

  2. Matt Groom says:

    It sounds like the crux of their argument has been proven a lie and now they are afraid to pursue the issue until they have a more firm hold over their dissenters. They want to silence talk radio and bloggers before they push for anything openly.

    We got ’em on the ropes, kids!

  3. Bitter says:

    Where on earth do you hear that they are trying to “silence talk radio and bloggers” in that interview?

  4. Firedeacon says:

    Just saw on Drudgereport that Specter is switching parties and becoming a Democrat.

  5. Right Wing Wacko says:

    The sooner this man joins the ranks of the unemployed the better.

  6. hillbilly says:

    Specter’s switch now means filibuster-proof majority for the Dems.

    Think about that for a while.

    Yeah, once Franken gets in there. We are doomed!

    Hey guys, just to cheer you up: If Al Franken and Diane Feinstein were to co-sponser a bill, would it be called “Frankenstein?” Well, if it were anti-gun it would certainly be monstrous! I guess that wasn’t very cheery after all – sorry.

    Notice he said Congress would not pass AWB not that he disagreed with AWB. Specter is a traitor to the GOP and has been for a while. I am glad that he finally made the jump. When a RINO votes democratic and violates the principles of conservatism it is better that he is an open enemy rather than tainting the ranks.

    I do not think he will keep his A rating with the NRA like Dingell who as Democrat is a strong 2 A supporter.

    It would be a change of position to vote for it, considering he voted against the original one, and against renewal. He may be a traitor to the GOP, but he’s been pretty much with us on guns.
