While President Obama was still running for President he made this promise:
“When there is a bill that ends up on my desk as the president, you the public will have five days to look online and find out what’s in it before I sign it,” Barak Obama (D-IL)
Apparently promises are made to be broken. Not even a month into his Presidency, he has managed to shatter plenty of them. He also mentions “no pork” and “no secrecy” in this very same speech. For those of you watching at home, this compromise was done in secret behind closed doors, and the bill was not even available to the members before they voted on it. The ink had not even dried on the paper yet before it got the Presidential pen. Combined with the fact that most of his cabinet is filled with former “lobbyist”, you will learn that “words” from the campaign trail don’t mean very much anymore. This “new” administration full of “hope” and “change”, is neither new, hopeful or a change, rather it is just retread of the Clinton administration.
Of course, our old friends are up to it again, well really still:
“And let me say this to all of the chattering class that so much focuses on those little, tiny – yes – porky amendments: the American people really don’t care.” – Sen. Up-Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.)
My, my, Up-Chucky gets a little uppity when he feels that he has a little power. The problem is, I don’t think Up-Chuck would recognize a ‘real’ American if they were kicking him in the ass. And if he did, I highly doubt he would stoop down to talk to them.
Of course we can’t forget our good friend Harry ‘smell the tourist’ Reid:
“I’m pleased to announce that we’ve been able to bridge those differences,” Harry ‘Dingy’ Reid, (D-Nev)
Nice try Dingy, since you finally were able to fund your pet project to build the train to nowhere that “bridges” the gap between L.A. and Las Vegas. Nice work, smug and arrogant as usual. Of course who could ever forget this:
“My staff has always said, ‘Don’t say this,’ but I’m going to say it again because it’s so descriptive because it’s true, … In the summertime, because the high humidity and how hot it gets here, you could literally smell the tourists coming into the Capitol.” Harry ‘Dingy’ Reid, (D-Nev)
Again, for those of you playing at home, this is how Harry actually feels about the ‘little’ people. If this man we to actually break a sweat from doing some real work, he’d be checking himself in the Bethesda for fear he had contracted some sort of medical condition.
And finally. let us never forget the “terrible trio” of Arlin Spectre (r-PA), Olympia Snowe (r-ME), and Susan Collins (r-ME). If we had just one person in leadership at the RNC with the balls to call for these three ass clowns to be expelled from the caucus, I’d consider giving them assholes my money again! Spectre, Snowe, and Collins have for too long been a thorn in the side of the Republican Party. And this latest breaking of ranks to pass the Economic Stimulus Bill (pronouced Steal-from-us Bill) is the final straw. The time for them to go is NOW!
