And they lead us?

Barack Obama promised to broadcast live all health care negotiations via C-Span. His recorded remarks total at least eight. This has not happened. Barack Obama is a liar.

Harry Reid Senate Leader (D) Nevada

Harry Reid referred to Barack Obama as a “light-skinned” African-American with “no negro dialect.”

April 2007 . . . On the Iraq war, “This war is lost.”

March 2005 . . . About Alan Greenspan . . . “One of the biggest political hacks we have in Washington.”

August 2009 . . . On the death of Senator Edward Kennedy . . . “I think it’s going to help us.”

August 2008 . . . About John McCain . . . “You know, Joe, I can’t stand John McCain.”

May 2005 . . . About President George W. Bush    . . .“I think this guy is a loser.”

December 2008 . . . About Capitol tourists . . . “You can always tell when it is summertime because you can smell the visitors. The visitors stand out in the high humidity, heat, and they sweat.”

August 2009 . . . To a Las Vegas Review – Journal executive: “I hope you go out of business.”

June 2007: About General Peter Pace, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, “Incompetent.”

Nancy Pelosi (D) California Speaker of the House

When asked if the health care bill was Constitutional,  “Are you serious, are you serious?”

About town hall protesters and tea party attendees: “They are not like a real grass roots movement they are more like Astroturf.” In other words, we really are not real people.

About Barack Obama’s promise to air the health care debate on C-Span: “You know, somethings are just said on the campaign trail.”

And then there is Senator Evan Bayh. When I read in the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette that Evan had voted against the debt ceiling I thought, gee, Evan, you finally get it. Then I discovered Evan had been given the tally before he voted, knowing full well it was going to pass so he could vote “no” and look like a “real hoosier guy” to us and maybe swing some votes his way this fall. Evan is just another political prostitute whose rise to the Senate has been well-greased. Evan, it is time for you to stand in the unemployment line. I will try to help affect that this fall. Too bad it couldn’t be now in January when the temperature is seasonal and you will have to wait for the doors to open at Work One. But, of course, you could be doing that anyway to “chat” with your constituents.

Should anyone be interested in making the effort to be heard and affect change there will be a Tea Party Meeting Friday, January 15 located at Life Church, 950 East State Street, Huntington. There will be accomplished and successful people on the speaking agenda, business people, candidates for office, and at least one doctor who will discuss health care reform. We can make a change, one person at a time. That’s the way things start. Let us all please start.

Dave Cooper,
