Yes, Coburn, You Really Are a RINO.

Another case of Butthurt in the First Degree from a Republican Congressleech who doesn’t much like being reminded that refusing to fight, no matter what the odds, doesn’t translate into “heroism” and “commitment.”

“I’m getting all sorts of e-mails from people that supported me because they’ve been totally misled about what’s possible…I’d love to get rid of Obamacare. But I don’t see a path forward to doing that until the president is out of office.”

And you are, of course, missing the point. That, by the way, is the charitable interpretation. The more likely one is that you don’t really give a flying fuck what the Americans who were daft enough to vote for you have to deal with for the next three years as long as you have a subject to raise funds on. After all, you’ve got yours. YOU don’t look at losing your job, your home and your healthcare coverage because of a law that you won’t even fight against.

Listen, you drooling twat, there isn’t anybody on the Defund It side who doesn’t realize that getting past a veto is impossible at this point. Or, at the very least, extremely unlikely.

But your “strategy” of just telling the American people to lay back, close their eyes and enjoy it for another three years and then, THEN you’ll fight, fight, FIGHT FIERCELY INDEED, to get it repealed isn’t exactly, how can we put it diplomatically?, “inspiring.”

There is value in fighting even though you can’t win. First and foremost the value of showing your increasingly disillusioned constituents that you actually know what fighting is, but also creating a rallying point, getting the message out and building a platform and a battlefield where you can win in the future.

Constantly rolling over does NOT convince the teeming masses upon which the success of your future fight depends that you’ll bother fighting even then and, without their enthusiasm, without their backup, without them driving people to the polls, there won’t BE a future fight, you inexcusably imbecilic fucktard.

But then you’ll just fall back on your current excuse, won’t you? “We don’t have the votes, so let’s don’t be beastly to the socialists. But we’ll fight the NEXT time!”

Fuck you. We’ve heard that refrain so many times now that it doesn’t even make the needle on the Enthusiasm Meter twitch, yet we’re the Bad Guys for pointing out that a limp-wristed fuck who won’t even try to fight unless victory is ensured isn’t exactly the sort of guy anybody would want to rally to the banner of? You think the 101st told the Nazis to go fuck themselves at Bastogne because they knew they were going to win? Should they, perhaps, rather have surrendered because things looked pretty hopeless? According to your idea of “courage”, they obviously should. And everybody should have praised them for their “pragmatism” forever more.

Or how about, say, Leonidas? Thank Zeus that he, when faced with the enormous might of Xerxes, pragmatically decided that there was no way in Hades that he could win at Thermopylae and heroically packed up his Spartans and went back home, thus setting a heroic example of realistic pragmatism that would rally the Hellenic nations and ultimately crush the Persian invasion.

Oh wait. That’s not how it really went down, was it?

Just shut up, you puling coward.

Go put some ice on that butt of yours and decide whether you’re here to lead, follow or get the fuck out of the way.

Until then, kindly shut up.

Coward.

Thatisall.

Let’s see Coburn. He can join Cornhole Cornyn, McLame, B#tch McCockless, Corker, that Wyoming Asshole who cussed out Ted Cruz, Murkowski, Snowe or Collins, on the RINO Hunting List.

And there’s always this: “If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival.

One of the true positives of the internet is that you can find articulate people expressing and clarifying troubling concerns that help you focus and seek starts of solutions.

Senator Coburn, you were not put in that office to warm a chair and mark time. If doing your job is so scary and demeaning, step down and fade away.

Tom Coburn has turned into such a disappointment in the last few years. When first elected, he was a standup Republican. He was such a pain in the ass that the Senate tried to make him either give up his medical practice or resign from the Senate. He did neither. Early in his career as a Senator, he made some… Read more »

LC Ogrrre @ #: Tom Coburn has turned into such a disappointment in the last few years. When first elected, he was a standup Republican. Republicans “grow” in office. Like surrender and betrayal, it’s just what they do, though unlike the former, it’s partly forced on them by their philosophy. It’s part of the problem with being “conservative” – the… Read more »

Here are the 19 who actually had the balls to fight:
Crapo (R-ID)
Cruz (R-TX)
Enzi (R-WY)
Fischer (R-NE)
Grassley (R-IA)
Heller (R-NV)
Inhofe (R-OK)
Lee (R-UT)
Moran (R-KS)
Paul (R-KY)
Portman (R-OH)
Risch (R-ID)
Roberts (R-KS)
Rubio (R-FL)
Scott (R-SC)
Sessions (R-AL)
Shelby (R-AL)
Toomey (R-PA)
Vitter (R-LA)

Here’s a list of the RINO cunts who voted with Harry Reid to fund OstalinCare:
Alexander (R-TN)
Ayotte (R-NH)
Barrasso (R-WY)
Blunt (R-MO)
Boozman (R-AR)
Burr (R-NC)
Chambliss (R-GA)
Chiesa (R-NJ)

McCain (R-AZ)
McConnell (R-KY)
Murkowski (R-AK)
Thune (R-SD)
Wicker (R-MS)

Flake (R-AZ) and Hatch (R-UT) didn’t vote, so they may as well have voted with the traitors.

Senator Richard Burr on twitter today Filibustering such a bill is not only the height of hypocrisy, but also lays bare for the world the hollowness of this so-called strategy.

Any of the Congresscritters or D-Bags on TV that say shit like “It was passed by Congress, signed by the President, and upheld by SCotUS” is a worthless RINO and should be figuratively beaten to a pulp. I’m sick of those MFers rolling over and pissing all over themselves at Dingy Harry’s feet.

Unfortunately, Peggy is trying to re-rat back to being on the Right after swooning over the Obamessiah. Doesn’t diminish what she says, I suppose, but it’s more jilted lover than astute observer.
