“I’m not an ideologue. I’m not!”
Not an ideologue huh Barry?
nationaljournal.com–In the following list, senators are assigned liberal scores for their roll-call votes on key economic, social and foreign policy issues during 2007. The scores on each scale are given as percentiles. The composite score measures votes across all three issue areas. You can sort the ratings from highest to lowest liberal score across all categories or alphabetically by name. [OK, will do…ed]
Wow, look who was the most liberal member of the U.S. Senate in 2007 just before he started his George Soros backed campaign for president!

“Ummm, in terms of lobbyists, I can stand here unequivocally and say that there has not been an administration who was tougher on making sure that lobbyists weren’t participating in the administration than any administration that’s come before us.”
(Stand here unequivocally? Wow, no wonder they try and have this smartest president we’ve ever elected to office on a teleprompter as often as possible)
Well let’s see what the left wing moonies at msnbc had to say about the lobbyist issue way back when Obama first got his hands on the keys to our White House…
“Look…the truth of the matter is that if you look at the healthcare process, just over the course of a year, overwhelmingly the majority of it actually was on C-Span…”
Transparency? Healthcare legislative debates on C-Span like Obama promised several times during the campaign?
Even Democrat Rep. Joe Sestak from Pennsylvania ran that Obama talking point right up the BS flagpole….
Then we have this mind numbing doozy from Obama…
washingtontimes.com–It may be a new year, but congressional Democrats are planning the same old sorts of sleazy tactics in their bid to take over America’s health care system. Congressional Republicans, especially in the Senate, should not let them get away with it. Transparency and ethics should be Republican rallying cries, and obstruction on those grounds should be a point of pride.
By now it’s almost trite to complain that President Obama repeatedly has broken his campaign pledge to “broadcast [health care] negotiations on C-SPAN so that the American people can see what the choices are.” That doesn’t make the complaint invalid. For legislation that could so profoundly and personally affect the daily lives of every American, Congress and the White House should be more transparent and more accessible than ever before. Instead, the process has been secretive and sordid throughout.
The House passed its version of the bill on a Saturday night. The Senate held its key procedural vote at 1 in the morning, and then provided a lump of coal in our stockings by forcing full passage of its bill on Christmas Eve. The House leadership banned consideration of all but one amendment not offered by leadership itself – forbidding debate on more than 150 of them – then provided just 24 hours for members to study the bill’s final text. The Senate leadership inserted so many tawdry last-minute items that analysts are still finding jokers in the deck 11 days later…..
Honestly, can this guy get anything straight!
…or have to depend so much on his omnipresent teleprompter!
Look folks, we’re Americans. We’re tough as nails. We’ve suffered hacks like Obama before and we’ll have to suffer them again at some point in our lifetimes but we shall endure. His reign will essentially come to an end November 2010 when the GOP takes back enough seats in Congress to put the brakes on the anti American agenda his administration has wrought upon our country.
Pass the word.
