"Conservative Democrat" Joe Manchin, Who Won in WV Due to His Supposedly Pro-2nd Amendment Stance: "Everything is on the table" with Respect to Gun Control

How many f'n' times are voters going to fall for this trick?

And more to the point, I guess: At what point is the RNC going to be running ads featuring previous supposed "conservative Democrats" showing how each in turn flipped to the liberal side on ObamaCare (and the abortion mandates), guns, etc.?

Sen. Joe Manchin, who once shot a copy of the cap-and-trade bill through with a rifle in a campaign ad to prove his down-home bona fides, is apparently looking to change that. In the month since Newtown, Manchin has been pro-gun control, then back to pro-gun, then at a No Labels event, presumably because his opportunistic flip-flopping defies ideological classification.
On Andrea Tantaros’ radio show Monday, he was back to more aggressive talk on gun control:

“Do you think there should be more gun control laws?” Tantaros asked Manchin directly.

Manchin responded, “I believe that you have to have an approach, to where everything is on the table. Now, when you say ‘gun control,’ I just don’t think it’s a one-issue problem. That’s why people keep talking about that, and people keep wanting to say ‘yes’ or ‘no,’ ‘are you for this or against it?’ We’re in an environment in Washington where your guilty by conversation.”

Red-State "Conservative" Democrats
