Brownback against Craig reconsidering

Kansas Sen. Sam Brownback participated in the Republican debate on Wednesday.

(CNN) - Kansas Sen. Sam Brownback made clear at Wednesday night's New Hampshire debate that he disagrees with embattled Sen. Larry Craig's decision to reconsider his resignation.

"He's already pulled that trigger and he's decided what to do and he needs to stick with that," Brownback, a social conservative, said of his Idaho colleague.

"I think it is important that our party stand for family values," Brownback added. "We have got to rebuild the family. That's at the core of what we need to do. We shouldn't walk away from family values for fear of instances like this happening within our party."

    Brownback just save it – don't pass judgement unless you are without sin. And while your at it, stop stepping on gays faces on your wishful trip to the white house.

    C'mon Sam, where's your compassion for a fellow conservative? I thought you guys stuck together.

    Snowshoe Larry needs your help – don't be so judgemental.
