CRomnibus passes Senate. Burr helps. (*Um, Surprise ?!*)

Ted Cruz (R-TX) and his crew put up a good fight, but — in the end — the horrible, horrible, evil, blood-sucking, baby-killing, puppy-kicking CRomnibus passed the US Senate 56-40. Cruz, Mike Lee (R-UT), and Jeff Sessions (R-AL) pushed a point of order vote to…

PPP Poll: 31% approval? (Burr, that’s cold.)

Burr disses Ted Cruz’s O-Care defund effort, intros basically O-Care Lite

Back when Texas senator Ted Cruz was single-handedly spearheading the effort to defund ObamaCare,  Richard Burr was dismissing it as “the dumbest idea” he’d ever heard of.  We took a poll. Spending your day jock-sniffing Lindsey Graham and John McCain actually ranks as DUMBER.  Now,…

Burr’s dalliances with the Democrats date back to at least 2002

I’ve heard some grumbling from folks about Senator Richard Burr’s steadfast support for congressman Mel Watt in his efforts to become Barry Obama’s new director of the Federal Housing Finance Authority.  I wonder what those same folks will say when they learn about then-congressman Burr’s…
