Senator Warner’s mumblilngs about possibly seeking another term have not gone unnoticed by Jerry Fuhrman, who gives some excellent commentary (“You Want More Of The Same?”) about just how bad an idea this is over at From On High. Jerry is right on the money here.
What I find particularly galling about Senator Warner’s behavior is his penchant to run into the arms of Chuck Schumer and Dianne Feinstein every time there’s an opportunity to consider another abomination which would unconstitutionally restrict Second Amendment rights. If you want more gun control, regardless of how the scheme has miserably failed everywhere it’s been imposed, by all means support another term for Senator John Warner. If you want higher taxes, abortion on demand, or expensive social engineering experiements, suppport John Warner. I am relatively confident that Senator-Elect James Webb, who at least in his campaign promises has indicated a willingness to support Virginian values to some degree, will produce a voting record superior to what we’ve seen from Senator Warner.
I know it’s going to be a tough fight to keep this seat in Republican hands, but it’s certainly possible that with a strong campaign by a good candidate — and we have strong candidates available — with hard work it can be done. It’s time to lay the groundwork for something better to happen for Virginia than being subjected to another term by this phenominal disappointment.
