Rep. Amash votes no on resolution condemning North Korean nuclear test


Michigan’s Amash was one of only two congressmen to vote against the resolution today:

Rep Justin Amash R-MI & Rep Tom Massie R-KY the only two “No” votes on a resolution condemning North Korea nukes

— Jamie Dupree (@jamiedupree) February 15, 2013

Here is what Amash said:

@wmthos @repthomasmassie I do condemn N Korea for hostile actions. I recognize that call for further sanctions, isolationism is bad policy.

— Justin Amash (@repjustinamash) February 15, 2013

It’s not as if Congress was voting on taking military action against North Korea. Why not go on the Congressional record condemning North Korea’s actions?

If you claim to support & love liberty you better denounce nations like North Korea. Looking at you Amash!

Amash has found himself in hot water with many conservatives as of late. This move isn’t likely to assuage their concerns:

Wow. Justin Amash can’t bring himself to condemn North Korea for conducting nuke tests? Yet he thinks of himself as a DEFENDER of liberty?

— Ken Gardner (@kesgardner) February 15, 2013

What’s with @repjustinamash? He opposed condemning North Korea for its nuclear test? Explanation please?

#endorse RT @keder: Epic failure Rep. Justin Amash can’t bring himself to vote to condemn North Korea? Big defender of liberty. #loser

Defender of liberty and protector of the common man, @repjustinamash refuses to condemn the North Korean regime and their nukes. #Fail

[email protected]repjustinamash is really making a name for himself this week. Slow clap for the vote to NOT condemn N Korea.

Hi @repjustinamash , I can’t wait to hear your conservative justification for voting AGAINST condemning N. Korea.

— Dr. Jason B. Whitman (@JasonBWhitman) February 15, 2013

Ditto. Perhaps @repjustinamash should watch Team America for some lessons on North Korea. At his intellectual level. @jasonbwhitman

— Bill Moody (@WRogersM) February 15, 2013

Anyone with a brain, heart, and soul would denounce North Korea. Looking at you Amash.

— Redness (@mchastain81) February 15, 2013

UPDATE: @repjustinamash will be on the Ed Show tonight to condemn the GOP for condemning N. Korea. #NotReallyButMaybe
