The Democrat Traitors

Senate Democrats tried Tuesday to channel public anger at $4-a-gallon gasoline into passing a bill to repeal federal tax breaks and subsidies for five major oil companies, but they fell short.

After bashing Big Oil in a hearing last week, Senate Democrats mustered fewer than the 60 votes they needed under Senate rules to move the bill to a final vote. The final count was 52 - 48. Three Democrats - Sens. Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, Mark Begich of Alaska and Ben Nelson of Nebraska - voted against the measure. Only two Republicans - Maine Sens. Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins - voted for the bill.

Let’s face facts, Sen. Mary Landrieu (D Louisiana) was one of the few Democrats who felt as though the Obama administration was too harsh on BP after the massive oil spill in the Gulf that left eleven people dead, and the ecosystem devastated.

Sen. Mark Begich (D Alaska) along with Sen. Mary Landrieu (D Louisiana) has big oil interest in their states. As Sen. Begich stated it, "I don't have a problem saying what's on my mind," he added. "If (the bill) hurts Alaska, they're going to hear from me."

What both of these Senators don’t understand is that they think they’re hoodwinking the people of America by pretending they’re looking out for their constituents; but instead they’re protecting the interest of their biggest donors to their re-election campaign. Do these people think the American people is that stupid?

Sen. Ben Nelson (D Nebraska) always vote with Republicans, I honestly don’t know why this guy will not just change parties and become a Republican.

What really bothers me is that I see Tea Party members and Republicans pushing their misguided agendas to benefit the richest of the rich, while laying all the blame on Firefighters, Police Officers, and School Teachers for the economic down-turn in America today.

Where are the supposedly outraged Democrats, one would think after silencing the birthers at least the Obama supporters would say something; but yet, once again they’re silent.

One would think after President Barack Hussein Obama showed he had more courage than his predecessor to go after those who threaten the citizens of America with deadly force, his supposedly supporters would be campaigning in his behalf in the likes of the Tea Party supporters campaigned in behalf of the birthers; but yet, once again they’re silent.

Can you imagine if it was a Republican president that ended the rein of Osama Bin Laden? Of course there would’ve been dancing in the streets that we saw in New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Miami, and all over the world rejoicing the killing of the person who masterminded the murder of just as many Muslims as he did the infidels. But the Republicans would’ve played it like, “We told you Democrats was soft on protecting the American people, we’re the only ones who can keep you safe.” But yet, Democrats are silent.

I’ve come to the conclusion that Democrats are cowards, or they are part of those who just can’t stand to see the first American Black President succeed.
