Wow folks, what is up with Democrats these days? Talk about grumpy!
Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA), along with Ben “Cornhusker Kickback” Nelson, was one of the last remaining holdouts when Senate Leader Harry Reid was pulling every funny bunny and funky handkerchief out of his magician’s hat trying to get all 60 Democrat Senators on board the ObamaCare freight train back in December.
She had been claiming one of her main beefs with the Senate version of the bill was the “public option,” more accurately described as the “government option,” but lotsa folks think what she was really holding out for was a fabulous financial deal in order to gain some political points back home since she is up for reelection this year.
Reid eventually capitulated to her and Nelson’s big money demands doling out hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to secure their votes and finally gain passage of the nearly $900,000,000,000 Senate version of ObamaCare on a strict 60-39 party line vote.
Here we have the emotionally fragile Senator trying to defend her decision to vote for the ObamaCare bill, in exchange for what many have referred to as a three hundred million dollar “bribe,” on the Senate floor ending her screwy little diatribe with a firm suggestion to Republicans to put an end to any further criticisms of her deal and basically just shut the hell up.

Interestingly or perhaps TELLINGLY this woman actually had the sack to say she stands up to “defend” the voters of her state when, according to her misplaced logic, “they’re wrong” on the issues and gently pats them on the head “when they get it right.”
People like Landrieu show why there is such a visceral backlash against all these arrogant self important Democrat politicians all around the country.
I sure hope this goof enjoys that political career ending retirement party come November.
