#ncsen: Tricky Dick ‘not getting into THAT crap.’

sneaky-richard-burr-e1389799989332Gov. Pat McCrory, senator Phil Berger, and Lt. Gov. Dan Forest have been stand-up guys in defending their state and HB2 from the leftist howler monkeys.  What does our man in DC — Richard Burr — have to say about seven of his colleagues pressuring the NBA to boycott the Tar Heel State?: 

[…] Further distancing himself from the rest of the GOP, Kirk has waded into issues that other Republicans aren’t too keen to get involved in. Asked about the attempt by Kirk and the Democrats to take the All-Star Game away from Charlotte, Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) responded: “Oh, I’m not getting into that crap. Thanks.”

Ah, great quotes from political history:  “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.”     “Mr. burrGorbachev, tear down this wall.”   “Oh, I’m not getting into that crap. Thanks.”

The leftist hordes are slandering our state and attempting a shakedown Tony Soprano would be envious of, and our man in DC wants to stay out of it?  This ranks right there with describing the attempts to defund ObamaCare as “the dumbest idea” he’d ever heard of.  

When it hits the fan, you can count on Richard Burr to duck and hide.

  1. It is things like this that make many GOP voters lukewarm about Burr. Given the disgust with Boehner, Ryan, and McConnell, just having an ”R” by your name is not sufficient any more, but Burr does not seem to grasp that. He has been in the Washington beltway bubble too long.

    It is also things like this that mean a heavy handed coup by the establishment for control of the party will likely have a blowback with collateral damage to establishment candidates like Burr. Burr’s getting involved in the last convention by endorsing the establishment candidates will put him on some folks payback list if there is a bloodbath in the party on April 30. The establishment is endangering their own candidates like Burr by doing what they are doing, and that is just stupid.

    Conservatives right now have little reason to support Burr, and an intra-party bloodbath from the establishment way give them a reason to not support him.

  2. So, this is exactly why we should have stood behind Dr. Greg Brannon in the primary. He was our best shot to get rid of liberal Burr. And we missed it. Again.

  3. Dang. I voted for Brannon TWICE but we STILL got this ol’ Dick. We really oughta have closed primaries.
