GOP sources: Sen. Martinez to resign

WASHINGTON (AP) - Republican Sen. Mel Martinez of Florida will resign from the Senate this fall, more than a year before his term ends, according to several GOP sources.

Martinez planned a Friday afternoon announcement in Florida to officially divulge his plans. The sources spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to do so before his announcement.

Martinez already had said he would not seek re-election, but had fended off rumors that he would give up the seat early.

His decision puts Republican Gov. Charlie Crist - who is running to replace Martinez - in charge of filling the seat in the interim.

GOP sources: Sen. Martinez to resign

OK, 1st things 1st. Let’s get this story started off right. Something the MSM refuses to do. Maybe they don’t know the difference, who knows, the ignorance of MSM reporters is astounding, but here is how that 1st chapter should read;

WASHINGTON (AP) - RINO Sen. Mel Martinez of Florida will resign from the Senate this fall, more than a year before his term ends, according to several GOP sources.

There, I feel much better now. I hate it when the MSM refers to people like Martinez, Olympia Snowe, Lamar Alexander, Lindsey Graham, Kit Bond, Richard Lugar, George Voinovich, Judd Gregg and Susan Collins as Republicans. They are NOT Republicans, they are RINOs, and they are what is wrong with the Republican party. They ALL need to be removed from office ASAP!

Admittedly, I don’t know enough about Florida politics and the people involved. I know Gov. Crist is listed as a Republican, but I don’t know if that’s a misnomer or not. Maybe he is a REAL Republican, maybe he’s a RINO. That’s up to the people of Florida to decide, I have all I can deal with here in Texas. Besides, no matter what I think, there’s nothing I can do to change the outcome of Florida’s Senate problems. I just hope they handle it better than they have their last few elections…

He denied that he faced difficult re-election prospects in a state won by President Barack Obama. But he has struggled to boost public support because of his close ties to President George W. Bush and his efforts pushing an immigration bill that was unpopular with many Republicans.

As I have said previously, Mel Martinez, RINO.

No REAL Republican supported George W. Bush on his immigration bill.

No. 3 Republican to back Sotomayor for high court

No. 3 Republican to back Sotomayor for high court

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate’s No. 3 Republican announced Thursday he’d break with the rest of his party’s leaders to support Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor, who’s in line to become the first Hispanic justice.

Tennessee Sen. Lamar Alexander said he was voting for President Barack Obama’s nominee despite his differences with her, particularly on gun rights.

“Even though Judge Sotomayor’s political and judicial philosophy may be different than mine, especially regarding Second Amendments rights, I will vote to confirm her because she is well qualified by experience, temperament, character and intellect to serve,” Alexander said in a speech on the Senate floor.

Alexander, a conservative, is only the sixth Republican to publicly line up with majority Democrats to back Sotomayor, a native of Bronx, N.Y. and a federal appellate court judge. She’s virtually guaranteed to be confirmed in a vote next week, and is expected to join the Supreme Court in time for an earlier-than-usual meeting in September to hear a campaign finance case.

This article calls Alexander a *conservative*. That is as far from the truth as anything that could possibly be said. Lamar Alexander is lower than POND SCUM. There is NO WAY in hell that ANY Conservative would vote for Sonia Sotomayor, I would say that the good people of Tennessee have their work cut out for them and I sincerely hope that this RINO SOB Alexander is currently enjoying what will be his final term in office.

conservative – adjective
1. disposed to preserve existing conditions, institutions, etc., or to restore traditional ones, and to limit change.
2. cautiously moderate or purposefully low: a conservative estimate.
3. traditional in style or manner; avoiding novelty or showiness: conservative suit.
4. (often initial capital letter) of or pertaining to the Conservative party.

conservative –noun
8. a person who is conservative in principles, actions, habits, etc.
9. a supporter of conservative political policies.
10. (initial capital letter) a member of a conservative political party, esp. the Conservative party in Great Britain.

Lamar Alexander needs the above definitions SLAPPED upside his RINO head!

A Conservative doesn’t vote FOR an anti-gun SCOTUS nominee. A RINO votes for anything his Democratic and Libber brethren tell him to vote for. Lamar Alexander can’t even spell the word Conservative, much less define it.

Sen. Alexander, if you really feel that you must kiss Obama and Sotomayor’s asses, the next time, can you just do it over a beer in a motel room somewhere?

RINO - noun
1. See Lamar Alexander
