Because of his support of gun safety legislation, Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) has watched his approval ratings soar. They are now at the highest they’ve ever been, as opposed to say, Kelly Ayotte’s. According to a Qunnipiac Poll, 85 percent of Pennsylvanians approved of his and Senator Manchin’s gun background check proposal.
You know what at least 85 percent of Americans should DISapprove of? This, via the Times Herald:
“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 said.
In subsequent comments, he 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.
“The toughest thing to do in politics is to do the right thing when your supporters think the right thing is something else,” Toomey said.
Hey America, open your eyes. This is what the GOP is all about: Obstruction, hate, and self-interest. They care nothing about what we want, they ignore the polls and the wishes of many of their constituents because of their disdain for President Obama.
Gee, I wonder what about him they find so distasteful… I can’t imagine, because he’s compromised, he’s put forward many of their own plans and ideas, so think… think… what could it be?
