Quotes of the day

The contentious political fight over gun control moved into the White Mountains of New Hampshire on Tuesday as gun-control activists began to focus on Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) as a prime target in their effort to revive their push for stricter gun laws

Back home this week for a series of town hall meetings, Ayotte is facing new constituent anger and a coordinated effort by gun-control groups to turn her vote into a political liability. These organizations include Mayors Against Illegal Guns, the group founded by New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg (I), and the liberal think tank the Center for American Progress. Other groups are deploying organizers to New Hampshire, Arizona, Arkansas, Nevada and North Dakota in hopes of shaming moderate senators of both parties who voted against the background-check plan…

“There’s a sense that the people who support background checks know that they’re in the mainstream,” Stadtman said. “To be rejected by Ayotte like that, when it was so obvious that many of her constituents wanted her to vote for it — it was a tipping point.”

***

New PPP polls in Alaska, Arizona, Nevada, and Ohio find serious backlash against the 5 Senators who voted against background checks in those states. Each of them has seen their approval numbers decline, and voters say they’re less likely to support them the next time they’re up for reelection…

After just 3 months in office Jeff Flake has already become one of the most unpopular Senators in the country. Just 32% of voters approve of him to 51% who disapprove and that -19 net approval rating makes him the most unpopular sitting Senator we’ve polled on, taking that label from Mitch McConnell…

We saw serious improvement in Rob Portman’s poll numbers in the second half of 2012 following his consideration as the Republican Vice Presidential candidate, but he’s taken a nose dive in 2013. Portman’s approval has dropped a net 18 points over the last 6 months from +10 (35/25) in October to now -8 (26/34) in April. Portman’s popularity decline has come across the board with Democrats (from 15/39 to 8/50), Republicans (62/11 to 46/19), and independents (28/23 to 24/32) alike…

And in Nevada Dean Heller has seen a more modest decline in his approval numbers, from 47/42 right before the election to 44/41 now. However with the independent voters who were critical to his narrow victory in November, his approval has dropped from 52/37 then to now 42/42.

***

Nothing like waking up to a poll saying you’re the nation’s least popular senator. Given the public’s dim view of Congress in general, that probably puts me somewhere just below pond scum.

Now, notwithstanding the polling firm’s leftist bent, I would assume that my poll numbers have indeed taken a southerly turn since my vote against the Manchin-Toomey background check proposal. It was a popular amendment, and I voted against it.

Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) revealed that some members of his party opposed expanding background checks for gun sales recently because they didn’t want to “be seen helping the president.”…

“In the end it didn’t pass because we’re so politicized. There were some on my side who did not want to be seen helping the president do something he wanted to get done, just because the president wanted to do it,” Toomey admitted on Tuesday in an interview with Digital First Media editors in the offices of the Times Herald newspaper in Norristown, Pa.

The Times Herald noted that in “subsequent comments,” Toomey “tried to walk that remark part-way back by noting he meant to say Republicans across the nation in general, not just those in the Senate.”

***

“After you get the 29″ votes to filibuster, one conservative staffer put it, “you know who to beat up.” The filibuster effort, by this telling, was something of a whip count by a guerilla unit of conservative freshmen.

So Lee, Cruz, and Paul — and their staffs — set out to work on those Republicans who were less than firm. Almost the entire GOP conference was pretty strong in opposing the Democrats’ more Draconian gun control proposals — such as an assault weapons ban — but the conservative rump didn’t want any new regulations on gun ownership by law-abiding citizens. Cruz, along with almost every other Republican, signed on to an alternative bill by Sen. Charles Grassley, which mostly beefed up the current federal database behind background checks.

Anything more ambitious was a nonstarter in the eyes of Cruz, Paul and Lee. Specifically, they rejected the proposal by Sens. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., and Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., to create a mandatory universal background check. Toomey-Manchin was the only real chance Obama had of passing a gun control bill. If that went down, gun control went down…

So, the Obama account is wrong in part because it portrays the NRA as calling all the shots within the GOP on guns. But it seems it was Cruz, Lee and Paul who drew the line, and then the NRA came in to hold that line.

Last night on MSNBC’s Hardball, Chris Matthews played this video and asked for my response.

I brought up the analogy of terrorism yielding calls for war in the Muslim world, or restrictions on civil liberties. These are standard responses to terrorist attacks, and it’s very likely that some victims or their families would advocate such a response.

“Just because there’s a victim who wants a direct response,” I said, “doesn’t mean that is a correct policy response.”

Look, the Bloomberg group is manufacturing some of this.

Bloomberg spent $260 million combined — from his own bank account — on his 3 campaigns in New York City for mayor.

Bloomberg casually spent $10 million last September and October to go after pro-gun congress members.

Bloomberg also tossed $2-3 million in spare change to attack a Democrat w/ an NRA A-rating.

Bloomberg will spend huge $$$ over the next 18 months to try to make Republicans sweat.

They’ll fund liberals to yell at GOP congressmen at townhalls. They’ll run nasty TV ads for a year on cable.

VorDaj on May 1, 2013 at 10:50 PM

if conservatives aren’t careful they’ll lose this. And then the long march of restricting who can and who can NOT have a gun will begin. Somehow you rarely hear about the left wanting to put your medical records into NICS.

but this is how they always operate, lie, wave their hands, distract, then lie some more..and get their friends in the press to help them. And too often conservatives will believe that reason is on their side, and very few people are into gun control.

conservatives are very short term thinkers, sliding from one election to another, from one vote to another….leftists are on a mission

I was seeing “Flake and Ayotte, Ayotte and Flake” blowing around the sterilized MSM copy all day.

The fact that they didn’t mention it is all the reference you need to know that neither, in fact, are up for election next year. Meaning that it’s completely irrelevant. Gun laws aren’t going to cost anyone a single vote, at least for the “against” position, in 2016 or 2018. Even next year would be a stretch.

So basically the MSM is just doing their usual due diligence with new Republicans, hoping to expose weakness. You can blame them; it works.

They are mentally deficient for tying Portman’s poll implosion to gun confiscation legislation. It has EVERYTHING to do with him coming out for SSM and revealing to his base that he is nothing more than a lying opportunist.

You can do all the polls you want about gun rights/control and get whatever answers you want.

But, if a you do a poll that asks this simple question, you’ll get such a resounding response that the rest is de minimus:

Do you think the government should be able to prevent you from owning guns or take them away from you?

And all those say the world wanted gun control and we didn’t give it to them, and the world is mad. Thinking about it, I guess I have been looking at material for awhile that tells me how uncool I am.

New PPP polls in Alaska, Arizona, Nevada, and Ohio find serious backlash against the 5 Senators who voted against background checks in those states. Each of them has seen their approval numbers decline, and voters say they’re less likely to support them the next time they’re up for reelection…

Reality check- huge majorities in moderate states and healthy majorities in many red states want better gun regulation, starting with comprehensive background checks that cover ALL gun sales. The drumbeat of claims on HA and other conservative blogs to the contrary is just so much wishful thinking masquerading as objective reporting.

I don’t think so. Maybe on dry land if they couldn’t get back to water in time.

They hate you, me, and everyone else who doesnt kowtow to liberal pipedreams and the left will never outright admit it but they wouldnt blink over sending you to a camp.

The sentiment is good, but the technicals, not so much. Wilson & the Sedition Act and FDR & internment already happened. Given enough power, they’d gleefully and openly send a number of us to the gulag.

Geez if I had a dollar every time I saw the left talk down Bush or the Bush economy only to jeopardize jobs or our country’s safety I’d be richer than UrbanElitest.

People have never lived in peace with it, either they fought back or they ran or both. Only the willing slave-apparatchiks accepted their lot and the lefties have apparently decided the chains are tolerable.

Reminds one of the Clinton era assault rifle ban. Labor camps and Stalinism were part of every day life in this country, with Nascar fans most likely to find themselves tracked by black helicopters. The horror, oh the horror.

bayam on May 1, 2013 at 11:26 PM

But how can you live in peace with this? I mean, how has anyone ever lived in peace with this? How’s it done?

You are right about the camp.

The same questions that were asked, and answered, in our first revolution, at the founding.

I know your brain probably barely operates above that of a 5 year old having a temper tantrum, but I encourage you to provide us with any supporting data that gun control or gun bans reduce homicides or violent crime in general. Take your time. We’ll wait.
