I have the utmost respect for Representative Posey and I understand why he voted the way he did. I believe he’s a man of integrity but who cast the wrong vite. However, I have major issues with the GOP leadership and the many “moderate” Republicans in the House who are all too eager to pacify the liberals lest they look “mean-spirited”.
A flawed “compromise”, which was destined to die a quick death at the hands of Harry Reid in the Senate, sends a completely unacceptable message to the Administration and American people. The message it sends is that the GOP is vulnerable to caving in, once again, to the demands of the progressives in Washington. Once again, the GOP is failing miserably to communicate the message that by refusing to turn our backs on what we know is just and right, we are standing up for ALL Americans and protecting their and their children’s futures.
