Politico’s Understated Obama Headline

After days of fear-mongering by President Obama who claims “catastrophe” awaits America unless Congress immediately approves his pork-laden, near trillion dollar “stimulus” bill, Politico headlines:

Obama paints bleak economic picture
Talk about understatement.

This Democrat bill has given us a rare gift: Looking at the three lone RINOS who are in bed with the Democrats, we can now know for absolute certain that Maine's two US Senators and Pennsylvania's lone RINO are really stalking horses for the Democrats. We got rid of our RINO (Dole) here in North Carolina, and Burr has been sounding more and more like what a Republican should sound like. I'd rather have a Democrat who tells us what he/she is doing than a RINO who leads us to believe he/she is a Republican but votes with the Democrats on important issues. If the folks in Pennsylvania and Maine are happy with these three bozos, there's not much we can do about it.

Specter is in for a hard fight to retain his seat - he will find that his vote on this piece of legislation will serve to seal the end of his Senate career. Snow' and Collin's vote will probably not affect their positions. My guess is that once this bill fails to stimulate the economy as has been promised, there will be a number of senators and representatives who will be doing some fancy talking to explain their "reluctant" vote for the package.
