  •  Like his vote against DADT? (0+ / 0-)

    May I remind you that Manchin was the ONLY Democrat in the Senate to vote against DADT repeal?

    That's reason enough to oppose him.

    Then again, having his as Governor for 6+ years was enough of an indication for me.

    •  He wasn't present for that vote. (0+ / 0-)

      He was at home trying to corral support for Tomblin.

      •  That was the FINAL vote. (0+ / 0-)

        Remember the first one?

        Gay-rights activists on Friday booed the mere mention of newly sworn in Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), the only Democrat to join Republicans in blocking a repeal of the Pentagon’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy.

        a Capitol Hill rally, two West Virginia natives took to the stage and condemned Manchin’s vote on Thursday, issuing veiled threats that they would work against his 2012 reelection if he did not reverse course.
