In her lavish praise of the GOP turncoats who joined the unified Democrats in voting for passage of Gov. Brewer’s Medicaid/ObamaCare expansion taxation package, sap monger columnist Laurie Roberts highlights the principled stand taken by Seeing Red AZ.
Listing the turncoat Republican posers deserving of “DeKookification” in the upcoming election, Roberts writes, “A big round of applause goes out to Rep. Heather Carter of Cave Creek who engineered this week’s democratic revolution. Also, to Reps. Bob Robson of Chandler, Kate Brophy McGee of Phoenix, Jeff Dial of Chandler, Frank Pratt of Casa Grande, Doug Coleman of Apache Junction, Ethan Orr of Tucson, Doris Goodale of Kingman and T.J. Shope of Coolidge. Also, to Sens. Steve Pierce of Prescott, John McComish of Ahwatukee, Bob Worsley of Mesa, Rich Crandall of Mesa and Adam Driggs of Phoenix.”
Then she laments,” They will have targets on their backs in 2014.”
Roberts no doubt familiarized herself with that bulls-eye technique through associations with her RINO ally Kathy Petsas who went to great lengths attempting to oust conservative Republicans from GOP Legislative District 28.
In an attempt to marginalize Seeing Red AZ, which Roberts says is rife with “party kooks” seething about “colluders” and “traitors,” she identifies this site as “the right-wing blog that railed at length on Thursday about ‘Enemies Domestic.’”
That we did!
It’s a good bet our readers take pride in being so described by the far-left wing publication we refer to as the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic).
Expecting Republicans to represent their constituents and those who worked to get them elected, is not unrealistic. Those who campaign for office on specific platforms intended to generate conservative support and then collude with the Democrats, are deserving of scorn — and the fitting descriptive identifiers, “colluders” and “traitors.
We don’t recall Ms. Roberts getting huffy about this target, complete with trigger crosshairs. In this instance, smears and dirty tricks were being played by a liberal against a completely exonerated conservative, which was enough to keep her lips buttoned up and her fingers stilled on the keyboard.
Robert’s diatribe brings to mind the quote of President Harry Truman. During a speech a supporter yelled out “Give ‘em Hell, Harry!” Truman replied, “I don’t give them Hell. I just tell the truth about them and they think it’s Hell.
The Democrat president’s truism serves as our comeback to Laurie Roberts.
This video illustrates the true conservatives. They make us proud. The list that Robert’s declares deserving of a “a big round of applause” are indeed traitorous. They have betrayed the Republican voters who put them in office and their own caucus members. In turn, their legislative seatmates expose their despicable actions:
