Supporting the NRA is BAD politically say Dems...except when it's not

The media con­tin­ues it’s relent­less push for Manchin/​Toomey and their goal to pun­ish those who would deny jus­tice for vic­tims polit­i­cal vic­tory for Obama but as the Lonely Con­ser­v­a­tive notes via the Hill the polit­i­cal real­i­ties for the left appear to be slightly dif­fer­ent:

A polit­i­cal blog for the Argus Leader reported that DSCC offi­cials “are lean­ing, per­haps even heav­ily lean­ing, for Stephanie Her­seth Sandlin.”

Schweitzer and Her­seth San­dlin both have “A” rat­ings from the National Rifle Asso­ci­a­tion (NRA), which endorsed both can­di­dates in their most recent campaigns.

Well that doesn’t mean any­thing, after all Pat Toomey & Joe Manchin have A rat­ings from the NRA I’m sure with 90% of the coun­try sup­port­ing “back­ground checks” they will rush to endorse it right?

Schweitzer did not respond to a request for an interview.

Whaaaat? That’s can’t be all smart pols who want to be elected next cycle are sup­port­ing Manchin/​Toomey Joe Scar­bor­ough said so!

David Parker, a polit­i­cal sci­ence pro­fes­sor at Mon­tana State Uni­ver­sity, can’t see Schweitzer embrac­ing Sen­ate leg­is­la­tion to expand back­ground checks if the issue comes up on the cam­paign trail next year.

I would sus­pect given his back­ground, he would say no,” said Parker “He has lots of guns and says he’d like to get some more. I don’t see him say­ing he would sup­port those expanded back­ground checks.”

Well I NEVER! I guess Schweitzer is an aber­ra­tion and doesn’t want to win but I’m sure Stephanie Her­seth San­dlin is not of that kind.

Schaff thinks there is lit­tle chance Her­seth San­dlin would endorse the background-​check leg­is­la­tion that foundered in the Sen­ate this month if she jumps in the race.

My guess is that she will take the NRA line,” he said. “I don’t believe Stephanie Her­seth would cross the gun people.”

Well that’s HIS opin­ion I’m sure given the chance Stephanie Her­seth San­dlin is cer­tainly going to set HIM right

Her­seth San­dlin did not respond to a request for an interview.

or not.

I’ve often said that you have to see what peo­ple actu­ally do. For all the blus­ter on Morn­ing Joe and else­where appar­ently peo­ple face vot­ers have a dif­fer­ent per­cep­tion, I won­der why?

Update: mixed up Schweitzer and Parker, corrected.

The media continues it’s relentless push for Manchin/Toomey and their goal to punish those who would deny justice for victims political victory for Obama but as the Lonely Conservative notes via the Hill the political realities for the left appear to be slightly different:

A political blog for the Argus Leader reported that DSCC officials “are leaning, perhaps even heavily leaning, for Stephanie Herseth Sandlin.”

Schweitzer and Herseth Sandlin both have “A” ratings from the National Rifle Association (NRA), which endorsed both candidates in their most recent campaigns.

Well that doesn’t mean anything, after all Pat Toomey & Joe Manchin have A ratings from the NRA I’m sure with 90% of the country supporting “background checks” they will rush to endorse it right?

Schweitzer did not respond to a request for an interview.

Whaaaat? That’s can’t be all smart pols who want to be elected next cycle are supporting Manchin/Toomey Joe Scarborough said so!

David Parker, a political science professor at Montana State University, can’t see Schweitzer embracing Senate legislation to expand background checks if the issue comes up on the campaign trail next year.

“I would suspect given his background, he would say no,” said Parker “He has lots of guns and says he’d like to get some more. I don’t see him saying he would support those expanded background checks.”

Well I NEVER! I guess Schweitzer is an aberration and doesn’t want to win but I’m sure Stephanie Herseth Sandlin is not of that kind.

Schaff thinks there is little chance Herseth Sandlin would endorse the background-check legislation that foundered in the Senate this month if she jumps in the race.

My guess is that she will take the NRA line,” he said. “I don’t believe Stephanie Herseth would cross the gun people.”

Well that’s HIS opinion I’m sure given the chance Stephanie Herseth Sandlin is certainly going to set HIM right

Herseth Sandlin did not respond to a request for an interview.

or not.

I’ve often said that you have to see what people actually do. For all the bluster on Morning Joe and elsewhere apparently people face voters have a different perception, I wonder why?
