And Let’s Hope This Is Another Coffin Nail For an ex-Senator Bennet

The majority of Americans don’t want Obamacare.  The majority of Coloradans don’t want Obamacare.  So what does Colorado’s appointed Senator want?

Four Senate Democrats wrote Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), asking him to revive the public option in the Senate’s healthcare bill.Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) called on Reid to reintroduce the public option into the healthcare debate through the budget reconciliation process, which would short-circuit filibuster rules and allow Democrats to pass a bill with a simple majority in the Senate.

“Although we strongly support the important reforms made by the Senate-passed health reform package, including a strong public option would improve both its substance and the public’s perception of it,” Bennet wrote to Reid in a letter cosigned by Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.), and Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio).

So cramming something the American people want down their throats is soon to be ex-Senator Bennet’s idea of a campaign strategy.  And let’s make sure to start on this path to “nationalization of US healthcare” by bypassing normal Senate rules and doing it through a budget reconciliation process.

I certainly hope that Colorado knocks this schmuck down.  And its funny, because if he gets what he wants you can almost guarantee he will get booted.  If the whole Obamacare fiasco fades into the mists he might have a better chance.

Pinheaded Schmuck Endorses Democrat

Of all the things that the Senate Republicans did wrong in 2006, giving their backing to a little weasel like Lincoln Chaffee (and opposing a good conservative candidate in the primary) stands as example number 1 of why they lost control of the Senate.

And how does this ingrate repay Senator McCain who campaigned for him?

 Former Rhode Island Republican Sen. Lincoln Chafee told reporters this morning that he is backing Sen. Barack Obama, despite the fact that Sen. John McCain campaigned for him in his failed 2006 re-election bid.

Asked whether McCain, the Republican nomination frontrunner, should take offense at the endorsement, Chafee said these things happen in politics. “I’m sure Sen. McCain will understand,” he said.

How does that little knife in the back feel Senator McCain?  Now multiply that many times to get close to why conservatives hate you and your candidacy.
