Tom Rice Pressured On Syria Vote

U.S. Rep. Tom Rice (RINO-S.C.) is being blasted for not heeding the wishes of his district by taking a firm stand against American intervention in the Syrian civil war.

Along with U.S. Reps. Jim Clyburn and Joe Wilson, Rice is currently “undecided” on whether to support a resolution authorizing military force against the regime of Bashar al-Assad.

Earlier this week Rice asked his constituents to vote in an online poll on the issue, and a whopping 71 percent of respondents said they opposed authorizing military strikes against Syrian. Rice remained unconvinced, though, saying he “will listen to the President’s argument for retaliation.”

Wait … retaliation?

Huh?

What in the hell is this doofus talking about? Did Syria attack America and somebody forget to tell us?

Sheesh …

Limited government advocates in Rice’s district are not pleased with his stance.

“He requested responses from and got with a resounding “NO” from the people he represents in the U.S. House,” the website Carolina Patriots noted.

Indeed. Rice needs to get a clue. He may be a warmongering Lindsey Graham wanna-be, but this is a gut check vote – and one he better get right. It’s also a major test for S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley, whose endorsement provided Rice with his margin of victory in last year’s GOP primary.

He is having a difficult (Hard time) thinking with Nikki’s hand in his front pocket!
Rice in a pressure cooker is sticky and gummy, kinda like Nikki’s hand in his pocket!
Is that a grain of Rice in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me?

Terrible, just terrible

To imply that our Vestal Virgin Gypsy Queen Governor would put her hand in the pocket of a man to whom she is not married and that her fondling could cause a grain to turn into a stalk is terrible, just terrible

Sorry I didn’t think of it first

Don’t the Japanese make sushi with rice? Isn’t sushi rice wrapped around cold, raw fish? Is there a metaphor here, or just a coincidental meeting of symbols.

How is house negro Jim Clyburn undecided? If Massa Barry says we’re going to bomb Syria, Jimbo will be voting to go in and bomb Syria for fear of his made up position, car and driver being taken away.

I sincerely hope Rice is not “holding out” his vote for some traded vote later. I sincerely hope he is not. Sincerely.

In all seriousness, Rep. Rice has no business trying to save a feckless, confusable President who has no idea what he’s doing when it comes to foreign policy. Jesus! Even Clinton shut up and just fired the damn useless missiles! BTW, we are STILL in Kosovo.

I saw a Congressmen on TV today saying he was going to wait until after another classified presentation on Monday PM to decide.

There is NOTHING WRONG with getting as much information as you can BEFORE you make a decision.

Just because cable news is ADHD doesn’t mean voters should be. But, that’s what Rush and Fox have trained them to do.

Thanks for the link back. Our point is that he should not be undecided on this issue. What does he expect the “liar in chief” to share that would actually matter. Well maybe donor list, but other than that…

Most of Rice’s support outside the Dunes, Pine Lakes and Million Dollar Mile sections of Myrtle Beach comes from the Robin Tallon and John Jenrette “Blue Dog Dems”, and there are a hell of a lot more of them in the South than people think.

You’re right, though, he could get considerable more mainstream to further left Dem support if he votes with POTUS and Lindsey on this.
