Why The August Recess Should Scare Immigration Reform Backers: GOP worried about town hall protests

June 25, 2013

Down with White People … Flood the country with people from the South America’s, re-colonize America, the right way, with a massive influx easily led communists. All they want is free stuff, until we run out.

Immigration reform-backing Republicans are concerned that town hall protests could derail support for the immigration legislation.

Advocates of immigration reform, who once hoped to have a bill on President Obama’s desk before Congress leaves for their annual August recess, should be nervously checking the calendar. If the House and Senate adjourn before a bill is finished, members will begin feeling pressure, especially from conservative critics who think the bill amounts to little more than amnesty.

Immigration reform backers need only recall four years ago, when the August recess gave rise to scenes of angry protests at town hall meetings across the country, protests that effectively ended any hope Democrats had of winning Republican support for comprehensive health care reform.

Six months into Obama’s first term in office, Democrats held out hope that they could fashion a bipartisan agreement on health care reform. Sen. Max Baucus, the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, was working closely with Sen. Chuck Grassley, the committee’s ranking member. Obama himself was assiduously wooing Sen. Olympia Snowe, who seemed open to reform. And White House officials believed they could find areas of common ground with dozens of Republicans in the House to form a truly bipartisan set of reforms.

Then came August, when conservative protesters who affiliated themselves with the nascent Tea Party movement descended upon town hall meetings held by members of Congress from both sides of the aisle. Democrats were on the defensive while Republicans, who might have once considered supporting a compromise, realized the level of anger their base felt over the bill…..

Snowe’s retirement leaves Senate Dems with tough decision

April 29, 2012

More Tom Foolery From The Donks … How can we fool(lie) to voters and still win the election.

Getting harder out there, now that the lamestream doesn’t control the play anymore. Read and see how the party of the KKK slithers the election.

Democrats looking to replace retiring Sen. Olympia Snowe (R) in Maine have a delicate decision to make.

If they back independent former Gov. Angus King, who stands the best chance at winning, they risk the appearance of having abandoned their own party’s candidates.

But if they support one of the four Democrats competing in the primary, they risk siphoning votes away from King and handing the seat back to Republicans.

Looming over the race is the lingering question about which party King will caucus with if elected to the Senate. King has steadfastly refused to say with which party he’ll cast his lot, a silence that some of his opponents claim deprives voters of the information they need to cast an informed ballot.

But both Democrats and Republicans seem to agree that when push comes to shove, King is likely to side with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.).

“It’s simply insulting to voters in Maine and to the candidates running for the Democratic nomination that King is playing this dishonest, cat-and-mouse game,” said NRSC spokesman Brian Walsh.

And here I bet you thought Abe Linclon was the founder of the KKK, if you listen to the Democrats tell it. If the Democrats didn’t lie, they would likely not win another election. Look what they did for Commie Obama.


Snowe: Obama fails at lawmaker outreach

March 28, 2012

Who is irrelevant? Why you are, so why do I need to discuss anything with you? Sen Snowe does her exit interview.

It must be nice to be an outgoing senator. Suddenly, your opinion about everyone and everything is relevant! If you’re retiring because the atmosphere in the Senate has grown too bitter and partisan, you have a special credibility; you can comment on members of both parties.

At least, that seems to be true in Olympia Snowe’s case. Why else would it be news that she gives the president a failing grade at lawmaker outreach? She doesn’t tell us anything we didn’t already know. The president keeps so much to himself that even members of his own party have complained about his lack of accessibility.

Still, it’s instructive to recall that the president has little interest in working with accountable, elected representatives. He has his boys’ club of inside advisers and his constitutionally questionable czars. Why work with Congress?

Sen. Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) hasn’t met with President Obama in two years, she said in an interview on Tuesday.

“I think it was during the healthcare debate,” the centrist senator told ABC News. “There was a meeting on energy, a meeting in the spring of 2010.”

Asked to give Obama a grade on his outreach to legislators, she said it would be “close to failing.”

“A president should be reaching out to many on the opposite side of the aisle. You know, to many Republicans, on a bipartisan basis,” the three-term senator said.

The reporter also asked Snowe who the president does make an effort to contact. “Good question,” she quipped.
