The Dems voted against an amendment that said you can’t bribe someone with earmarks. This is what the Dems stand for. Corruption, buying votes, lies.
Democrats voted down the DeMint Amendment tonight 53-46. The amendment would have prohibited the practice of trading votes for pork and pet projects. Jim DeMint reported:
Today, U.S. Senator Jim DeMint R-South Carolina, chairman of the Senate Steering Committee, made the following statement after the Senate defeated his amendment to prohibit the practice of trading votes for earmarks in the United States Senate. Senator DeMint’s motion was defeated on a 53-46 vote.

Alright, let me tell you a little tale about a company. Now this little company, back in 2003 made a little game called “Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic” aka KOTOR. Now this company was known as BioWare and they took on a big challenge in making a Star Wars game. Why? Because, almost as a rule, Star Wars games SUCK!
Now, BioWare, had some things that George Lucas didn’t have with Episodes 1-3. They had a story and talent. KOTOR was amazing. It combined action, with an RPG, linking a turn based combat system into real-time play. But, for all the wonder that was the KOTOR engine, the real joy was the story. The KOTOR story was just incredible; deep and thoughtful. KOTOR made your decisions during the game influence how the game progressed and how people treated you.
According To Quinnipiac Poll, 72% of Americans Against Public Funding Of Abortion. Not Even Dems Support
I guess that most Americans are just wrong and we need Obama to correct us, right?
“Although a small majority favors abortion rights, allowing the use of public money for the procedure under a national health care plan, which has been a matter of some dispute in both houses of Congress, is extremely unpopular,” said Pat Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.
The poll of likely voters showed 72 percent said they oppose allowing abortions to be paid for with public funds under any new health care system created by the government.
Quinnipiac asked respondents: “Do you support or oppose allowing abortions to be paid for by public funds under a health care reform bill?”
Just 23 percent supported the idea, and 5 percent did not know.
The strong opposition carried across all political parties. Self-described Republicans predictably opposed public funding for abortions in the largest numbers, with 91 percent saying they would not support it and just 5 percent in favor of the idea. But self-described Independents also opposed the idea by a margin of 74 percent to 23 percent. Democrats, too, opposed using public funds, albeit by a slimmer 54 percent to 38 percent majority.
Bush was definitely hated in his second term. That’s why we lost. Not because everyone wanted a liberal president, but because they wanted one who was not Bush. And they picked one.
Well, according to Rassmussen (I posted it a few posts back), his “Strongly Disapprove” is at 46%. At the end of his second term, Bush had a 43%.
Now Obama’s Approval Index is still higher, at -21 (compared to Bush’s -30), but consider this: Less than a year ago, his index was +28 and now it’s -21. Bush lost 9 points in 1 year. Obama lost 49 and is going strong.
Few Things Say “It’s An Obama Christmas” More Than Ornaments Of Communist Murderers On The White House Tree.
Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the White House
Not a loyal American was stirring, nor even that Mao louse.
The dissenters were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Obama soon would be there.
Why let a holiday season come between the White House and making some political statements? The White House pegged controversial designer Simon Doonan to oversee the Christmas decorations for the White House. Mr. Doonan, who is creative director of Barney’s New York has often caused a stir with his design choices. Like his naughty yuletide window display of Margaret Thatcher as a dowdy dominatrix and Dan Quayle as a ventriloquist’s dummy. For this year’s White House, he didn’t disappoint.
