A Democrat Senator that makes sense?

U.S. Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia broke ranks with fellow Democrats and said he’d support a stopgap spending plan that delays the individual mandate in President Barack Obama’s health-care law.

“There’s no way I could not vote for it,” Manchin said at a Bloomberg Government breakfast today. “It’s very reasonable and sensible.” [...]

“Don’t put the mandate on the American public right now,” Manchin said. “Give them at least a year. If you know you couldn’t bring the corporate sector, you gave them a year, don’t you think it’d be fair?”

He makes a lot of these claims to cover his liberal rear end at home.  However, when push comes to shove the guy is still a democrat that can't be trusted.  I am afraid that if a major issue came down to one single vote, Harry Reid would be able to count on this guy 99% of the time.

In the 112th Congress Manchin had a 16% score by the Heritage Foundation, just barely north of the AVERAGE democrat.

He has a 20% LIFETIME score over at the Club for Growth.

Liberal democrat or RINO Republican, they all talk a good game but when it comes voting time in DC, they all vote like LIBERALS.
