Badg,  his vote against HCR is why he's going to be re-elected in this conservative District (that's partly why I'm voting for him)  That and he doesn't have a strong challenger.  I'm just glad Mary Bitch Buchanan is out of the picture.

I am not at all persuaded that Altmire would have voted against HCR, if his vote would have tanked it. Are you Grumps?  And he voted for the stimulus, with all of that money going to public employees, when his vote was needed. Just who are the real blue dogs, and just who are the ersatz ones? That is the question.

I actually agree with both of you guys. Wink I think Altmire would've supported HCR if it came down to his vote, but that's why I still like him. Grin

That lead is big enough, George, I suspect he'd probably pull through even if he'd supported HCR, but admittedly it'd be close. In fact if he'd faced Buchanan as originally expected AND voted for HCR he'd probably now be sweating bullets in a neck and neck race. (Say what one will about Mary Beth, she would've been a stronger candidate than a no name tea bagger like Rothfus). With both in effect he'll have a relatively uncompetative reelection in an otherwise bad year for PA Dems.

The only problem with all of that, is that if a guy votes against his party only if his vote is not needed, then well, he is basically lying to his constituents. That to my mind is quite dishonorable, Badger.

It depends how you spin it. He could also be a man of the people that listens to his constituents over his own views or something.

American democracy is weird...

So I assume you're no fan of Scott Brown's, Torie? Wink

If he casts ersatz votes, then Brown gets demerits too. Does he?
