Bart Stupak D-MI packs it in…

He got ‘all wee-weed up’ and is getting out of Dodge ahead of an electoral smackdown by his constituents…reap the whirlwind baby…He is cutting and running ahead of a Tea Party movement to unseat him, MM covers it here


(Via The Business Insider) No question mark on this: Marc Armbinder’s first mention has been expanded upon here, and CBS News is now reporting it as well.  This should surprise nobody: we’ve been expecting this announcement since Wednesday.  Particularly since the Tea Party folks are going to – justifiably – claim at least the assist on this scalp*.

So… Stupak betrays the pro-life movement and his district, then quits rather than face the wrath of either.  And don’t weep for him: he’ll segue right into the comfortable life of a DC lobbyist, which means that he’ll probably get a pay raise and will certainly enjoy the remainder of his term, free from the nagging terror beginning to fill the lives of his Democratic colleagues.  Because you cannot trust a ‘conservative’ Democrat….

I agree with RedState that there is no conservative Democrat left in this Congress. I certainly haven’t seen one. Nary a sign of anyone I would call a ‘pro life Democrat’ either. That is a door that is closed IMO.

Evan Bayh was a moderate but he caved and voted with Pelosi Reid and Obama on HCR and he is on his way out the door…Hubby and I are voting GOP until we find a D with the courage of their convictions, maybe a decade before we see any DLC types that I can support again…

Advice to the GOP Leadership from a recovering Democrat & Twofer Tuesday: Come As You Are/It’s So Easy

I need to rant a bit. The GOP leadership needs to embrace the passion and patriotism of the American people, and absolutely must ignore the race baiting tom-toms of the lamestream media and is the last refuge of scoundrels, throwing the race card at Americans exercising their God-given rights to assemble, freedom of speech, and especially redress of grievances to our government.

Team Obama continues to replay their primary campaign, we are in the phase where anyone objecting to the incredible overreach and intrusion into our lives is branded racist, ignorant, uneducated, lampooned, etc etc.

Sadly in 2008 millions of Democratic voters were floored at this treatment, by our own party, people who KNEW DAMNED WELL the things they were saying were slanderous lies.

Maybe it is because I have been a Democrat for 24 years that I feel absolutely no compunction about my passion for the country and the cause of rolling back the travesty these people have foisted upon us and our children. I have been dragging crates over to serve as a soapbox and stood upon them to lecture my fellow nursery school attendees upon proper treatment of fellow classmates time out of mind, maybe it’s genetic, lol.

HillBuzz spoke about this a good year ago or more, but I see a plethora of articles hitting blogs and MSM in re the ‘racism!” or ‘radical!” (POT-KETTLE!) nature of the Tea Party Patriots and now more broadly, all who dare to oppose the ‘gift’ of Obamacare.

Get your ya yas out as The Stones used to say. Flags, families, friends, passionate patriots expressing their will. The evolution of conservative and GOP patriots, to the point where they felt compelled to do what Democrats have done for generations, and step outside into the public sphere to express their will, the evolution into Tea Party Patriots, joined by Independents and Democrats like hubby and I, is precisely BECAUSE of the machinations and biases of the lamestream media.

Their refusal to report the true expression of the majority of Americans’ will with regard to deficit spending, taxation, cap and trade, and lately health care, left most Americans feeling completely cutoff from each other. We were cast out of the collective consciousness of America as reported and reflected by our media each night in evening news broadcasts.

It is not going to be possible for the Axelrasputian Brigade to push we moderate Democrats away from the tea parties. We have always loved America and never bought into the neoprog hard left anti American BS to begin with. Now that we have lived our primary ‘trial by race card fire’, we will not be deterred.

The Indies I meet at Tea Parties have zero problem expressing their wishes for the Freedoms we cherish to be upheld, and I wager the conservatives and GOP have had enough of the race card shenanigans also. We don’t care what you call us, we know who we are.

The GOP leadership needs to reflect that same thick skin if you will. If the GOP Leadership fails to embrace the righteous, yes frakkin totally righteous anger of Americans over the healthcare debacle then it will be ‘So Fxxkin’ Easy’ for the Dems to hold power (h.t Axl Rose).

Obama must’ve laughed himself through the entire Democratic primary as Hillary was forced to apologize for an everlasting  chain of imagined, purported ‘slights’ and aspersions involving race. She couldn’t say ‘Good Morning’ without issuing an apology after SC. Learn from our mistakes.

These people throwing the race card know damn well it is baseless. Do not try to mollify the arsonists throwing gasoline onto the burning house. Just get in touch with the American people, we are out here standing for the Constitution, stand with us.

We are the people, party down and vote!! Primary votes now, November will be awesome… Come as you are Americans!

(and hey trollin Obots, ignore Kurt’s gun lyrics, they arent a secret code, lol. It is just a great tune we Gen X-ers like to listen to. ..)

Post-Passage: The Morning After..

Update: Lots of money bombs happening today. Here is linky for Fire Pelosi, just gave some dillydollars..h/t MoeLane

The countdown is ON: 40 hrs $40 40 seats to defeat Pelosi in Nov! #FirePelosi #hcr

Ed at HA has the list of Dems who voted No last night. Our Rep isn’t on it (Harry Mitchell voted yes). Lookee here, here is his GOP opponent David Schweikert. If you are in AZ 05 please give Dave some love. Here is Dave’s website,, it is overloaded, keep trying!

Here is his AZ Tea Party Network page.

David Schweikert Conservative for AZ - 05

The field now changes and the table will be run by the voters in November.

Remember, Pelosi can win when she can change Teh Roolz, but we win when the votes are in play (See Brown, Scott – MASS). No doubt many Dem Critters will wake up with a helluva corruption hangover.

We have 7 months to fund their opponents and organize at the state level to make sure these ‘Democrats’ are never ever given a chance to use Teh Roolz to usurp the wishes of the American people again.

Let’s make it count. Find your local Critters opponent, see if you can support them. If so, let’s get some money bombs going!

Update: Mitt Romney in The Corner:

A Campaign Begins Today   [Mitt Romney]

America has just witnessed an unconscionable abuse of power. President Obama has betrayed his oath to the nation — rather than bringing us together, ushering in a new kind of politics, and rising above raw partisanship, he has succumbed to the lowest denominator of incumbent power: justifying the means by extolling the ends. He promised better; we deserved better.

He calls his accomplishment “historic” — in this he is correct, although not for the reason he intends. Rather, it is an historic usurpation of the legislative process — he unleashed the nuclear option, enlisted not a single Republican vote in either chamber, bribed reluctant members of his own party, paid-off his union backers, scapegoated insurers, and justified his act with patently fraudulent accounting. What Barack Obama has ushered into the American political landscape is not good for our country; in the words of an ancient maxim, “what starts twisted, ends twisted.”

His health-care bill is unhealthy for America. It raises taxes, slashes the more private side of Medicare, installs price controls, and puts a new federal bureaucracy in charge of health care. It will create a new entitlement even as the ones we already have are bankrupt. For these reasons and more, the act should be repealed. That campaign begins today.

— Mitt Romney is the former governor of Massachusetts and author of No Apology.

Here are the Dem Critters who voted no:

2010 – Election Blitz

So Stupak and the ‘pro life’ Dems sold out. Well they have hung this albatross around their necks for generations and no ‘conservative’ Democrat (or liberal ones for that matter- See Brown, Scott – MASS), will survive the elections IMO. And now there are a few million Catholic Democrats looking for a new home.

We have only just begun to fight.

November is coming…..

Americans, start your engines!

Rasmussen: new low for Obamacare support: 41 for/56 against; 72% of Indies against the plan…

Survey says!!! BWAAAHAAAAAA!!!

Rasmussen h/t Instapundit:

Just 41% of voters nationwide now favor the health care reform proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats. That’s down two points from a week ago and the lowest level of support yet measured.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 56% are opposed to the plan.

Senior citizens are less supportive of the plan than younger voters. In the latest survey, just 33% of seniors favor the plan while 59% are opposed. The intensity gap among seniors is significant. Only 16% of the over-65 crowd Strongly Favors the legislation while 46% are Strongly Opposed.

For the first time ever, a slight plurality of voters now express doubt that the legislation will become law this year. Forty-six percent (46%) say passage is likely while 47% say it is not. Those figures include 18% who say passage is Very Likely and 15% who say it is Not at All Likely. Sixty percent (60%) are less certain.

(…)Intensity has been with the opposition from the beginning of the public debate. Currently, among all voters 23% Strongly Favor the legislative effort and 43% are Strongly Opposed.

Also, from the beginning of the debate, the has been a huge partisan divide. Currently 75% of Democrats favor the plan. Seventy-nine percent (79%) of Republicans are opposed, as are 72% of the unaffiliated.

BreaktheMatrix: Health Insurance Mandates: I’m Paying for What?!…

By BreaktheMatrix
By 10000pennies
In 2006, Massachusetts passed health care reform that implemented a number of policies that are now being mirrored in the Obama health reform plan. The president has repeatedly claimed that his plan will lower health care costs but not decrease health care quality. This visualization looks at how the Massachusetts plan has panned out in terms of cost and wait times.
