Well, you take your good news in small doses where you can find it these days. I guess I’m a “glass 1/8th full” kind of guy.
The extension of the Patriot Act failed yesterday on a simple procedural vote. But, like Kenny points out over at his sideshow, this cloud’s paper-thin silver lining is already tarnishing.
“The bad news is that Patriot Act extension failed because of a procedural move that required a two-thirds majority that fell short with 277 voting yes and 148 voting no. Which means that the majority of Congress are still traitors who don’t give a flip about our rights and who remain shills for the lies of the ‘war on terror.’” Kenny’s Sideshow
To be sure, this is a temporary victory as that they will bring it back with a straight vote which will only need a simple majority to succeed. It’s defeat probably has more to do with which party submitted this version of the extension and who gets bragging rights for being “tougher on terror” or some other nonsensical B.S.
But at least a few of our representatives are out there pretending to hold firm to the principles that sent them to congress. Take a look at video below of Dennis K. grandstanding about “freedom” and the “constitution” and all that jazz.
Payday for Dennis
Do I really need to remind anyone of how Dennis K. stands up to the powers that be in the White House?
History teaches us that we already know Kucinich’s real focus is to support “Obama’s agenda” over the rule of law when it comes to the unconstitutional Obama health-care bill and its illegal mandate forcing Americans to buy a flawed product from the big insurance companies.
So much for that constitution he brags about carrying around in his pocket.
Here are a few lines from the email Dennis sent to me explaining why he abandoned his support of the constitution and supported Obamacare. See if you can find the recurring theme Dennis hits on over and over again.
“To look at this in terms of the long-term impact on my constituents, of the moment in history in which we now stand, of the impact on the country, of the impact on the Obama presidency, on the impact on the president personally. I had to think about all of this.
… Those claims are just part of an effort to destroy the Obama presidency.
… The presidency will be weakened…
… and in contrast to a crippled presidency …
… The president will have a stronger hand in domestic and international affairs…
… the White House invested so much in this health care bill…
… a very exciting time where the Obama presidency gets a chance to hit the reset button. (excerpts from Dennis Kucinich’s letter explaining his support of Obamacare)
Anybody see it? I didn’t make it too subtle, did I?
I wonder how Dennis feels these days about supporting that Obama Agenda he was so worried about.
When it comes right down to it, Dennis Kucinich can be counted on to cave on this moral stand just like he did with the Insurance Company Bailout Bill. But it’s still fun to watch him from time to time. Almost seems like he thinks we have forgotten.
