Will NRA endorsements give Democrats the boost they need?

The National Rifle Association has endorsed incumbent Democrats in several crucial congressional races this year, frustrating Republicans who believe the group is hurting its cause - and the party's chances in November.

Although the NRA's agenda usually aligns with that of the GOP, the powerful group also adheres to what it calls "an incumbent-friendly" policy: If an incumbent and a challenger candidate have equally strong records protecting gun rights, the incumbent gets the endorsement, regardless of party.

The NRA just joined Gun Owners of America
as the First 21th Century AARP for gunowners as far as Iam concerned and my
whole family will never join or support NRA or Gun Owners Of America AFTER they sold all Gun Owners Out! This Shows NRA
Needs New Leadership Right Now! We used to
belong to both NRA and GOA and Second Amendment Foundation as law abiding gunowners ourselves but NO More Not After
NRA,and GOA Sold Us Out! It looks like NRA
needs to vote out it's entire top so-called
leadership and the voters need to vote out
every Incumbent Democrat,DINO,Republican,
and RINO out in 2010,2012 and 2014. I refuse to Vote For Any Candidate Now Being
Endorsed by NRA and GOA! Shame On You Sell Out AARP For Gun Owners NRA & GOA!

Before you go waking up with strange bedfellows, remember: it's better to be thinking with your brain and not your gun.

So,Iam glad that I never joined NRA after I
decided a long time ago,that the current
leadership of NRA that creep Wayne LaPierre
and this Chris W Cox cannot be trusted and
sure as heck are not the late good old "From My Cold Dead Hands" Charlton Heston and this NRA endorsing lying two face Democrats proves that I was right all
along about those two losers. Shame on NRA!

NRA has always supported liars and conmen who've been lousy for America in the past, so why are they endorsing some decent candidates now? Are they starting to grow some spine and brain cells? Shocking!

Really, a powerful organization like the NRA gets in bed with both sides? SHOCKING. I'm glad, as a pro-gun anti-republican (in this election) independent.

Teabagging scumbag morons are more likely to dismiss the NRA as just another RINO (Riflelover in Name Only) group and turn their backs on it, than take any advice. Teabaggers know everything, and when they hear something they don't agree with, they know they are hearing something that some Nazi, Communist, Devil Worshipper (O'Donnell excluded) is trying to brainwash them with.

If that is the only thing a politician can bring to the table - he/she shouldn't be voted in anyway.
