Goodbye, Norm.

Senator Norm Colman’s performance has become erratic and abysmal. He seems to have no direction except whichever way the wind is blowing at the time. His prior tepid support for our efforts in Iraq, his vacillation on the immigration bill, lack of certainty about the Bush tax cuts showed him to be generally rudderless.

Now the straw has fallen to break the camel’s back. By joining the Harry Reid caucus and supporting the Webb amendment that would undercut our current strategy that is paying dividends, Coleman is not looking at defeating America’s enemies, but trying to play politics with next year’s election. TvM points out that Coleman is already behind in the money race. The apparent ‘threading of the needle’ hasn’t worked with the previous issues, and his current attempt to undercut what is becoming a successful surge in Iraq is not going to yield any more positive results.

So it’s ‘Bye-bye’ Norm. This is one member of the base who can’t support your re-election. We need a leader who looks to understand situations, not a reed who bends with every breath of the Washington media wind.
