What's the Matter with Democrats?

I couldn't believe it, just couldn't believe it.

In the Ohio Senate race, Iraq war veteran Paul Hakett was pressured to drop out so that the Democratic leadership could run a candidate of their choosing. It's only a guess but I think that leadership ranks buttsuck potential over popularity.

Meanwhile in Vermont, state legislators want to push Congress to impeach Bush. However the Democrat Speaker of the House says:

"...lawmakers should stay focused on state issues and suggested Bush critics
work to elect a different Congress in November "that could investigate the
actions of the president and change the direction of the country."

That's right, "Stay the Course" it's worked so well in Iraq.

The republican habits of our democrat congressman.

Congressman Dan Boren D-OK, 2d District. From a tirade on a local democrat discussion board.

He voted to repeal the estate tax. In a time of high deficit to repeal a tax that only effects the ultra rich is about as republican as you can get.

"Vote to pass a bill that reduces federal spending by $56.1 billion over five years by decreasing the amount of funds spent on Medicaid, Medicare, agriculture, employee pensions, conservation, student loans, and other projects and retains a reduced tax rate on capital gains and dividends."

Yeah, he voted to cut medicare, medicade, employee pensions and student loans to maintain the tax cuts for the rich. Maybe he talks like a democrat, but he doesn't walk like one.

He must think that pandering to the right is more important than the 1st Admendment. He voted for a Constitutional admendment on flag burning proposed by the disgraced Duke Cunningham of CA.

His only votes on abortion were anti choice.

He voted to give the firearms industry complete immunity from the law.

He voted no on a
"a motion that strikes language from the bill's amendment that that shields manufacturers of the gasoline additive MTBE from liability lawsuits concerning contamination of drinking water."

He voted no

"To strike language from the bill that will allow oil and gas explorations in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge."

He voted no
"To expedite the construction of new refining capacity in the United States, to provide reliable and affordable energy for the American people, and for other purposes."

Voted with republicans
"to pass a bill that contains certain provisions regarding medical malpractice lawsuits and revises current law regarding punitive and compensatory damages." Basically to restrict the damages awarded to a malpractice patient no matter the circumstances.

Voted with the republicans to gut OSHA.

Voted no

"to adopt an amendment that bans the Department of Justice from arresting, prosecuting, or suing individuals involved with the distribution or use of medical marijuana in states that have laws authorizing such use."

Voted no with the republicans to

"Vote to adopt a substitute amendment that creates a Small Employer Health Benefits Plan, which would provide access to qualified national and State health pooling arrangements, assisting both employers and employees of small businesses with the costs of health coverage."

Voted yes with the republicans to exclude freedom of speech from the internet.

"HR 1606: To amend the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971 to exclude communications over the Internet from the definition of public communication.

Voted with the republicans to allow the Feds to have fishing expeditions in your public library.

Voted no to investigate the federal response to hurricane Katrina.

Voted with the republicans to do away with the Endangered Species Act of 1973.

Then voted with the republicans on a bad substitute.

His complete voting record is here:

And the latest. Congress moves to bar states from making food safer.

I don't even have to tell ya'.

BTW, my son is now working on his shot technique after you telling him for 5 minutes the same thing I've been telling him for years. Thanks.
