Here’s The ONLY Dem To Vote For Sessions As Attorney General

by
February 9, 2017

Joe Manchin

Only one Democrat out of the 46 in the Senate voted to confirm Jeff Sessions as the next U.S. attorney general.

West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin voted “yes” during the Wednesday night confirmation hearing. The vote ended up at 52-47, with Sessions voting present.

Manchin, 69, is one of the last remaining blue dog Democrats. Blue dogs are southern state Democrats with a conservative voting record. He was West Virginia’s secretary of state from 2001 to 2005, and then its governor from 2005 to 2010.

He opposes Democrats filibustering Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch, and he clashed with then-President Barack Obama and then-Sen. Harry Reid. Manchin calls himself “a West Virginia Democrat, not a Washington [D.C.] Democrat.”

    With the vote 47 t0 52 who was the Republican that did vote?

  • NM Leon says:

    Okay, I have to eat crow, I was wrong and I admit it. There IS a single honest Democrat in the Senate.

    Gotta wonder how long it’ll be before he stitches parties.

      Twenty years ago there were about a dozen so called “Blue Dogs”. They were slowly but surely removed by the dumocRat party. If they can’t cause them to be unelected they might have an accident of some kind. That IS the dumocRat way. Politics is a blood sport to the Left and the republicans just haven’t realized it yet. The fools are still playing “patty cake”.

      1. NM Leon says:

        I think Trump probably realizes it and is ready for them. Let’s just hope the Reps are capable of learning.

    YEP…ONE BRIGHT DEMOCRATE IS BETTER THAN A BUSHEL OF DUMB SHIT DUMBOCRAPS….LOL…LOL…

  • Anthony Guastella says:

    In the mold of JFK, who was concerned about America and its people and its safety and prosperity. Sadly, the democratic party is nothing like JFk or that vision. And MLK, who was a registered republican, admired JFK.

    1. maxx says:

      That is exactly why both JFK and RFK were silenced by the government. History proved both were personally morally bankrupt, but they were still patriotic Americans.

  • CBUJAN says:

    Even though Manchin is a democrat he is a good honest guy. He should cross over.

    1. maxx says:

      He is probably more effective sitting as a democrat. But after this vote his very life could be in danger. Remember, nothing is off the table as far as the dumocRats are concerned. Just think of the Clinton suspicious death list.

  • FRENCHIE1369 says:

    I DON’T KNOW WHY MANCHIN DOESN’T JUST THROW OFF THE YOKE OF THE DEMOCRAT PARTY. ONLY THING I CAN FIGURE IS, HERE IN WEST “BY GOD” VIRGINIA, THE STATE BREAKS REPUBLICAN IN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS, BUT GOES MOSTLY DEMOCRAT ON SENATE, STATE, COUNTY, & LOCAL ELECTIONS. WV DEMOCRATS ARE DIFFERENT THAN ANYWHERE ELSE. SEEMS THEY LEAN MORE CONSERVATIVE IN THOUGHT, BUT IT GOES RIGHT OUT THE WINDOW IN THE VOTING BOOTH & THAT’S PROBABLY THE SOURCE OF 80% OF THE PROBLEMS IN THIS STATE…GUESS THAT’S WHAT GENERATIONS OF UNION LIBERAL INDOCTRINATION GETS YA. BUT A LOT ARE STARTING TO WAKE UP, THANKFULLY. MANCHIN IS TOO SMART TO STAY A DEMOCRAT, HE NEEDS TO BREAK RANKS & GO REPUBLICAN…EXCUSE ME, CONSERVATIVE !!!

  • Stephen Howe says:

    We need more blue dogs!

  • Janthony132 says:

    BRAVO SENATOR MANCHIN. You have shown our country what a man of character and patriot, is.

  • Webb says:

    Thanks Joe…

  • capa760 says:

    When will our politicians ‘stop acting like high school rivals of hate’ at the sports events? That is why smart female students only dated the college guys, who had personalities of ‘Right and Wrong’, honesty, and moral guiding manners. You do not owe apologies for your actions, IF you have made THE RIGHT CHOICES in the first place. Have you heard the really stupid ones in U.S. Congressional moves? Of course, I have had ‘respect for our Congress and the trusted position of our elected representatives in both houses’. Until I received mail about the ‘Most Corrupt Politicians in Congress’. You have to be KIDDING! They were not kidding…… Congress has members seated for too many years, lining their pockets with unpro-fessional projects, with taxpayer’s bribes/payoffs/gifts, etc. Our Judicial Branch should look up the ‘Earmark:Sea Monkeys (Brine shrimp fish food). They voted in a $189,000.00 earmark to teach synchronized swimming to BRINE SHRIMP. Not only that “JOKE”,but they voted in an earmark “to watch monkeys gamble”. America has a long way to travel back to those days of our forefathers trying to make the BEST JOB FOR AMERICA. We have just come through the worst trashing of the American Constitution that
    was trying to turn America over to the dictatorship United Nations AGENDA
    21 Takeover of America’s lands, riches, rights, freedom, and liberty. Since

    the Congress allowed everything to be Obama dictatorship, we promised
    to VOTE FOR PATRIOTIC DONALD TRUMP as Our HERO. We knew that
    Hillary was more of the United Nations, like Bill Clinton’s signing away of the U.S.A. SEA TREATY ACT of SHAME TO THE UN. Fight FOR OUR USA REPUBLIC, our BILL OF RIGHTS, OUR SOVEREIGNTY, America.

    1. maxx says:

      Pray tell, where did these “college guys, who had personalities of ‘Right and Wrong’, honesty, and moral guiding manners” come from. Certainly not any American college during the past twenty years, except maybe Hillsdale or one of the military academy’s .

  • David Hummel says:

    Good Man, a Democrat that hasn’t been turned by the liberal progressive commucrats, there are damn few left.

  • The Redhawk says:

    Manchin might as well CHANGE party as he shall be called names and VILIFYED by the members of the Anarchist (D) party of Clowns led by CHIEF clown Schumer, the Screaming SQUAW Warrem Freak Franken, Cory Hooker,and the rest of that CIRCUS of IDIOTS!

    1. David Hummel says:

      No, he should stay where he is, I’m sure the liberal progressive commucrats consider him a DINO as we consider some of our Republicans RINO’s but he is likely to help us much like the RINOs help the liberal progressive commucrats.

      1. The Redhawk says:

        Think about this…He could make up any RINO defection until we get a super Majority in 2018…and get Chuckie serraglio of HOOKERS totally Off the Rails! Won’t that be Fun to see???

      2. maxx says:

        I’m sure the dumocRats will now do their best to remove him ASAP. There will be many paid voters to vote against him in the next primary. Count on it! But I suppose Republicans could try to keep him in. But then the dumocRats are not opposed to doing whatever is necessary, if you get my drift.

    2. Webb says:

      Redhawk,
      I agree with your thought on Manchin becoming a Republican…
      It would be a wise decision because he may get voted out next round by coal country in WV…

      1. The Redhawk says:

        Hi Webb, Yes Wva has Gone RPUB…Manchin is an OK good guy and what we need in case of Rino Defection on certain issues

        1. Webb says:

          Yes…Manchin is one of the last Bluedog Democrats left…
          Agree with your thoughts…
          Well Sessions is in Place…Warren is having Nightmares…This Political Fighting is the most fun I’ve had since being a Kid
          60 odd years ago…
          ☆☆☆

          1. The Redhawk says:

            Agree on Manchin….Faux Squw might need new Moccasins after so many crazy dances, a soak of head, and a severe need for another HEAD Explosion to accomodate those new “STRANGE VOICES” in her Empty head…as for FUn…Never seen a better Theater of the Absurd starring Pelosi as the Diva of the Crazies and Chuchk as the Clown in charge of the Circus of IDIOTS!

          2. NM Leon says:

            Pocahantus isn’t a “faux” squa, she’s a very real Squamish Cell Carcinoma.

          3. The Redhawk says:

            And here I though that she was a SICK Maggot …One never knows! :0)

          4. NM Leon says:

            No, though you are to be excused the confusion. Sick Maggot is Nasty Pelosi.

          5. The Redhawk says:

            now wait a minute … As the Historical line goes Pelosi is the One Whose HEAD EXPLODED and now hears
            STRANGE VOICES” daily in her Empty Head…..the Faux SQUAW has gotten so deranged and sick in da head to be THE MAGGOT or has something Changed??? Although your opinion about a cancer cell is serious!

          6. maxx says:

            Loved seeing Pocahontas silenced the other day. But did you notice the trembling that McConnell was doing? He is not accustomed to showing any spine so it was uncharted waters for him. I like him about as much as I liked Ovomit. McConnell is a Rino coward.

      2. Janthony132 says:

        You kidding? Coal country is going to support him and the GOP,that’s saving the coal industry that Obama and Hillary want to bury.

        1. Webb says:

          Only if he supports coal country…

          1. The Redhawk says:

            He has NO choice1

          2. maxx says:

            Being a “blue dog democrat”, why would he not support coal?

          3. Webb says:

            He will support coal…

    3. maxx says:

      I’m not from W.V. but I sent Sen. Manchin a “thank you” message for being a decent American.

      1. The Redhawk says:

        Great Idea , I will do same!

  • KKmoderate says:

    A politician with his very own mind. How refreshing!

    1. The Redhawk says:

      He;d have a good chance as a REPUB…in WVa
      Honesty is not a Positive Policy for the Current (D) eraged party

      1. KKmoderate says:

        Good points.
