Republicans Are Smarter Than Democrats on SOPA

I’m withdrawing my co-sponsorship for the Protect IP Act,” said Sen. Roy Blunt, a Missouri Republican.

Sen. John Boozman, an Arkansas Republican, “will be withdrawing his name as a co-sponsor” of Protect IP, a spokesman told CNET today. Fellow Protect IP co-sponsor Sen. James Risch, an Idaho Republican, said today that he wants “more time to re-examine the legislation before going to a vote” and has asked staff for a detailed briefing, a spokesman said.

And Sen. Orrin Hatch, the Utah Republican who has long been a close ally of Hollywood on copyright and is up for re-election this year, said on Twitter that “I will not only vote against moving the bill forward next week but also remove my co-sponsorship of the bill.” [...]

Rep. John Carter, a Texas Republican who is listed as a SOPA sponsor, “reserves judgment on the final bill,” a spokesman told CNET today. “He’s certainly not saying pass the bill as-is — there are legitimate concerns in this bill.” SOPA sponsor Tim Griffin, an Arkansas Republican, now says: “I will not support a bill unless my constituents are comfortable with it.”

If you keep reading that story, the Democrats listed all remain adamant that they’ll remain co-sponsors of the legislation but work to “fix it”. . .

Those goddam Democrats would rather keep collecting their Hollywood checks, than heed the will of millions of Americans who have lent their online voice in an unprecedented manner.

Are they really this stupid? Can they really be this idiotic?

Yes, they can. The most recent whooping that the Dems got in the 2010 elections apparently taught them nothing about the need to listen to their constituents. And then they will be publishing endless articles trying to solve the mystery of why they are losing their voter base. Truly, who can solve this enigma?

Idiots.

  1. People ask me sometimes why I don’t support the Liberal Party of Canada. I tell them it’s because, as an ex-American, I am sick to death of spineless centrist parties who have their heads shoved so far up their ass they can taste breakfast.
    Guess which party I was referencing?

  2. Do you know what the really sick part is though? No matter what happens the Democrats know that they will still be in power this time next year as absolutely no one with a functioning brain is going to vote for which ever freak of nature the republicans put up against Obama.

    The Dems know they have the American people over a barrel they can support whatever free speach obliterating bill they feel like because hey its ether them or nothing.

    Truly disgraceful behaviour and my heart genuinely goes out to every intelligent American who has been forced into this predicament.

    • I agree completely. This is a very bad situation for this country because we are genuinely stuck between two evils and this endless figuring out of which lesser is less evil and which evil is lesser is very frustrating.

  3. Here’s a before and after chart of who supports SOPA/PIPA

    Neither side looks overwhelmingly Republican/Democrat.
