Would the NRA rather have Speaker Pelosi or the Republicans in charge of the House? ...
    A disturbing question.

    NRA only cares about NRA power and money

    Would the NRA rather have Speaker Pelosi or the Republicans in charge of the House?

    My honest answer to your question Doug is that the NRA would want the NRA in charge of the house. They would support anybody, including Michael Bloomberg, if they thought it would lead to more power and money for the NRA.

    That's why I am a life member of not only the NRA, but GOA and TSRA. Not that I always agree with the positions they take, or the people they endorse. I make up my own mind when I vote. It just so happens I never vote for a dem. The NRA endorsements are based on political strategy, and I could understand why they'd rather have Dirty Harry Reid remain at the top of the senate rather than chucky schumer. There's no doubt in my mind that the best possible thing that could happen would be a republican majority, thus eliminating that scenario.

    What we need now for a real demonstration of 'balance' is for a life member of both the democrat party and the gop to post here. Soo reasonable and so unprincipled, like trying to ride two horses at once, the NRA going to the left and the GOA going to the right.

    And thanks for attributing the question to me, but all credit goes to someone smarter, better spoken and more widely read.

    See the signature that I have had for the past couple of days and will leave up until the midterms are over to see my feeling on the subject of supporting gun-friendly incumbent Dems over equally gun-friendly Republican challengers.

    If the NRA faces the dilemma of choosing between two equally pro-gun candidates, incumbency is the stupidest tie-breaker. The wise deciding factor would be party leadership.

    Of course, that means that they would be picking lots of Republicans over Democrats, and they don't want to appear to be partisan. Again, a stupid consideration.

    In my voting district the choice is clear cut, the NRA happens to be endorsing everyone I plan to vote for. Just for the sake of arguement, if they did endorse Lord Doggett (D) over Dr. Cambell (R), I would still be voting republican because Doggett is a howling moonbat. Since Doggett has consistently followed the moonbat fringe on the gun issue as well as every other insipid platform it's no wonder the NRA endorses Cambell.

    I've heard her speak at a couple political meetings, and I'm not exactly impressed with her, but I loathe Doggett, and I would vote to have him replaced with wild boars if they were on the ballot.
