Democrat Bullshit

Stunner: Scared Mass. Dems Plot to Delay GOP Victory In Teddy Seat Until ObamaCare Passes
Article: News Busters

As Republican Scott Brown’s campaign warms up to take Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat in Massachusetts,

Frank Quaratiello of the Boston Herald is reporting something shocking: if Brown wins, Massachusetts Democrats may drag out his certification as the victor to enable appointed Sen. Paul Kirk (the former DNC chairman) to put ObamaCare over the top.

“We want to get this resolved before President Obama’s State of the Union address in early to mid-February,” Kirk told reporters at a Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce breakfast…

“Absolutely,” Kirk said, when asked if he’d vote for the bill, even if Brown captures the seat. “It would be my responsibility as United States senator, representing the people and understanding Senator Kennedy’s agenda. . . . I think you’re asking me a hypothetical question but I’d be pleased to vote for the bill.”

After all the rule-bending shenanigans of the Massachusetts Democrats, leaving a dying Kennedy in office, and then ramrodding Kirk’s appointment to the Senate to help ObamaCare, now they’re desperate enough to ignore the people’s vote?

It’s one thing to immediately swear in Democrats, claiming a public mandate, as House Speaker Pelosi did in the Scozzafava and Garamendi special elections last year. It’s another scandal entirely to delay a swearing-in — telling the people that their elected choice shall not be allowed to represent their most current wishes. Will the national media notice? It certainly has national ramifications. The Herald story elaborated:

Few have considered the Jan. 19 election as key to the fate of national health-care reform because both Kirk and front-runner state Attorney General Martha Coakley, the Democratic nominee, have vowed to uphold Kennedy’s legacy and support health-care reform.

But if Brown wins, the entire national health-care reform debate may hinge of when he takes over as senator. Brown has vowed to be the crucial 41st vote in the Senate that would block the bill.

The U.S. Senate ultimately will schedule the swearing-in of Kirk’s successor, but not until the state certifies the election.

Today, a spokesman for Secretary of the Commonwealth William Galvin, who is overseeing the election but did not respond to a call seeking comment, said certification of the Jan. 19 election by the Governor’s Council would take a while.

“Because it’s a federal election,” spokesman Brian McNiff said. “We’d have to wait 10 days for absentee and military ballots to come in.”

Another source told the Herald that Galvin’s office has said the election won’t be certified until Feb. 20 – well after the president’s address.

Since the U.S. Senate doesn’t meet again in formal session until Jan. 20, Bay State voters will have made their decision before a vote on health-care reform could be held. But Kirk and Galvin’s office said today a victorious Brown would be left in limbo.

In contrast, Rep. Niki Tsongas (D-Lowell) was sworn in at the U.S. House of Representatives on Oct. 18, 2007, just two days after winning a special election to replace Martin Meehan. In that case, Tsongas made it to Capitol Hill in time to override a presidential veto of the expansion of the State Children’s Health Insurance Program.

If we had a national media that was truly nonpartisan and cared about fair play, this would be a big story. Instead, we often see a Democrat-favoring, Kennedy-adoring media that cares about liberal results first, and the rest is all poli-sci “process.”

For his part, Scott Brown certainly had something to say:

“This is a stunning admission by Paul Kirk and the Beacon Hill political machine,” said Brown in a statement. “Paul Kirk appears to be suggesting that he, Deval Patrick, and (Senate Majority Leader) Harry Reid intend to stall the election certification until the health care bill is rammed through Congress, even if that means defying the will of the people of Massachusetts.

“As we’ve already seen from the backroom deals and kickbacks cut by the Democrats in Washington, they intend to do anything and everything to pass their controversial health care plan. But threatening to ignore the results of a free election and steal this Senate vote from the people of Massachusetts takes their schemes to a whole new level. Martha Coakley should immediately disavow this threat from one of her campaign’s leading supporters.”

Coakley offered the Herald reporter no comment.

    I gave a $5.00 donation to Scott Brown…I live in SC but I want this guy to win in Massachusetts…so if you can donate to this guy…he maybe the only one that can stop HC and other crap legislation between now and November 2010! Even $5.00 will help defeat the well funded, morally bankrupt, facist loving, christain hating morons that make up the democratic party!

      Come payday I’ll see what I can do, but you’re right. There was another key election happening, and I forgot who it was between and what state it was in. Way to go, DangerB. Herman Cain was talking about it when he filled in for Hannity (or was he filling in for Rush?). That is one smart SOB.

    I am going to do a five and dime donation…five dollars for candidates out of my state…ten dollars for in state candidates.

    • January 11, 2010 12:10 am

      I’ll do the best I can, but hey, every dollar counts.

      Maybe if people order enough of those Obama “Joker” stickers I’ve got in the sidebar for me to be able to send monetary support to a candidate that’s worth a shit.

      Maybe I should advertise that. So far, I’ve just made enough off of selling them to pay for the cost of the ones I bought and for domain related stuff.

      Hm…

    I’m donating to the Tea Party.
    I’ve had it with D / R.

    • January 11, 2010 12:12 am

      Yeah, but the “Tea Party” consists of people from both parties and everything in between. Just a bunch of pissed off people who cannot direct their anger towards one candidate or belief, so they gather together to protest the things they’re not satisfied with.

      I hope we can get a decent Conservative candidate on the ticket.

    DB,

    Have you been to a TEA Party?

    • January 11, 2010 2:30 am

      You better believe I have. I went to the Atlanta one; my pal Hannity was there.

    Hey ya’ll I found this on obambi…I love this guy I wish I could vote for him…who knows maybe one day I will get to:

    Lt Colonel Allen West, great American and candidate for Congress (and my candidate for President 2012), responded here: “Friends, attached is my response to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s comments, which I consider incredibly vile”.

    “The revelation of Senator Harry Reid’s comments referencing “negro talk” is just indicative of the true sentiment elitist liberals, and indeed the Democratic party, have toward black Americans. The history of the Democrat party is one of slavery, secession, segregation, and now socialism. It is this new aged socialism born from the Johnson Great Society programs that have castigated blacks as victims needing government dependency. One need only to look upon the city of Detroit to ascertain what liberal social welfare policies have produced for the inner city…..the new plantation for black Americans.

    The Ku Klux Klan was birthed by the Democrats as a terrorist wing to intimidate blacks, and whites, who sought to promote economic and education independence and social justice for blacks. What was once overt has just morphed and become covert, yet still exists..

    One can only imagine the insanity and media outrage if Reid’s quote had come from a member of the Republican party. I look forward to hearing from Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton on Reid’s comments……..or has liberal hush money paid for the silence of these proprietors of poverty and victimization theory.. Actually, if President Obama had any courage he would demand Reid step down as Senate Majority Leader, and discontinue any support for his Senate reelection…….notice I said “if”. I am quite sure the Soros money which elevated Obama to the position of President has bought his servitude.

    Why am I running for US Congress as a Republican, simple, I would rather stand proudly and be called “Uncle Tom and Sellout” than lose my self-esteem and be considered an inferior by liberals. I understand the legacy of the GOP and the black community….not that revisionist history espoused by liberal educators. I am not, shall never be, and will not raise my daughters to be a part of the liberal 21st century plantation. I am not just some articulate, clean, good speaking negro. I am an American warrior, Congressional candidate, and shall never submit to the collective progressive ideal of inferiority.

    Senator Harry Reid’s comments are disgusting, despicable, and unacceptable. They are representative of how intellectual elite liberals do indeed speak of black Americans in their closed private spaces. Next week I have been invited to NYC to address the Hudson Institute, a conservative organization, conference on “Reclaiming American Liberty”. That invite came to me because I took advantage of the opportunities this great Republic offered. I followed the guidance of my parents and set my standards above all others around me. I speak well and have impeccable communicative skills because my Father and Mother prioritized that quality.

    I shiver to think what my future could have been if I listened to the insidious rhetoric of charlatans such as Harry Reid, and the ambassadors of affirmative action who reside in the Congressional Black Caucus.

    Sure, the “stuck on stupid” blacks are going to address me in derogatory names, but I possess something which they lack; Honor, Integrity, and Character. To them I say, continue to be slaves to the liberals for your vote…….and in a year you will be calling me Congressman West.

    Steadfast and Loyal,
    LTC(R) Allen B West

      I’ve been learning a LOT about Allen West lately. He’s GREAT. He REALLY knows what’s up, and he fucks with the liberal’s “brains” so hard, they can’t even fight back.

      Then again, fighting without ammo is pretty… stupid. Thanks for sharing!
