I’m forgetting something…

I’m supposed to do something today but I just can’t remember what it is.

Hmmmm.  What was it?

That’s right!  I have to take out the trash.

Regime Change Starts TODAY!!  



Gang of 219 revisited

The day after the House of Representatives’ vote on Obamacare I captured information on the Gang of 219 that voted for it as well as their opposition. 

That was back on March 23rd and it was as much therapy as scientific research, but I had convinced myself that it might prove useful in removing each and every one of these arrogant Congresscritters that had voted against the will of the people.

I revisited my old spread sheet tonight now that the primaries are done.  The website Politics1 is an invaluable website for compiling such things, incidentally.

It was dismaying on March 23rd that of those who voted YES, many thought they were safe as they had no opposition at that time.  64 of the Gang of 219 had no opponent.  Today, there are only 12 with no opponent.  I appreciate every one of those people who have stepped up in the face of adversity.  Of those stepping up; a pastry chef, a funeral home owner, a carpenter,  a roofing contractor, multiple medical professionals, and a realtor who happens to have been the former President of the Haitian Senate.

Among those running are 26 candidates who entered the fray after I collected my info back in late March, went up against others who were already running and won their primaries.  Most notable is Daniel Webster, who beat 9 challengers in FL-8 to go up against the Devil, Alan Grayson, probably the most despicable and detestable Congressman in the Gang of 219.  You remember Grayson, right?  Do I have to assemble all of the reprehensible stuff he’s done and said?

I don’t know anything about THIS Daniel Webster, but I’m going to have to give him the benefit of the doubt.

Same goes for Joe Walsh and Isaac Hayes in Illinois.  Rock On boys!

There is simply not enough time to research this completely if you’re actually employed.  Any insider info on any of these races would be appreciated. 

All I know is there are 14 of the Gang of 219 who are no longer seeking re-election to their House posts.  Some are running for higher office like Kendrick Meeks, who is opposing Marco Rubio for the Senate, so that means he’ll soon be retired. 

Others, like Bart Stupak realized that their late night dalliances with Barack Obama, has resulted in them being double crossed, exposed as frauds and know that their electoral fortunes have turned to crap.  That’s what they get for their slow dances with a street hustler.

This is a view from 40,000 feet, but I am simply amazed and grateful that so many patriots came out of there comfort zones to try to save their country, for better or worse.

Find your disfavorite incumbent and show some love to the opponent.  I’ll try to use this list to flush out more info over the next few weeks.  All of the reps on the left voted for Obamacare.

Thank you all and God speed.

Those People Should Be Thanking Me! (The Audacity of The Left)

Rep. Rick Boucher is asking voters to believe he was acting in their best interest when he voted for the coal killing cap and trade bill. Boucher was chairman of the energy sub-committee of the previous Congress which first drafted the legislation, and was deemed to be instrumental in the bills development. Boucher opened his pre-vote remarks on the bill by saying that he was in “strong support of the bill.”[

The challenger Morgan Griffith, one of the most influential and efffective members of the Virginia General Assembly, opposes the Obama/Pelosi/Boucher “cap and trade” scheme. Their program will result in massive job cuts in Southwest Virginia’s coal industry while raising electricity, gasoline, and heating prices for all consumers and will devastate the economy.

Griffith Question’s Boucher’s Commitment to Border Security

I just read an interesting post from Jason on Bearing Drift and I used it as an inspiration for my latest Rick Boucher cartoon.
