How divided this country has become. I have never heard such contempt and sophomoric talk against the American public by their own elected officials in my life. I guess they are learning from Teh One's great oratory skills and his eloquent use of Alinsky's tactics. Bart Stupak, who's true colors are reflected in this video at about 3:29 in, by sounding off on his fellow Americans:
If anything I just made the tea party people spend a lot of money that wasn't necessary on all these ads they have to run against me so they can't use it on anyone else. So I'll take credit for sucking their treasury dry."
Really, Bart? The "Tea Party people." Who are the tea partiers, Bart? They are your betrayed constituents who now give their hard-earned money to defeat progressive-socialists hiding in conservative clothing politicians like yourself. They are hard-working Americans who are tired of government taking over their lives and stealing the fruits of their labors through oppressive taxation. They are the very people you call 'neighbor' and 'friend' back in Michigan.
This now seems to be the norm and how elected members of Congress and other officials treat those who have been betrayed by their congressmen. Role models, indeed. Your constituents did not want you to vote "yes" on the government health care takeover, nor did they want to pay for abortions and unconscionably kill unborn babies. After 18 years of service, your ego finally consumed you. We could see it in the interviews with Greta. The man of the hour--Bart Stupak--was it worth it?
Additionally, as seen in this other video, you clearly did not have the consent of your constituents--the governed--and yet you still voted for the takeover despite their vehement opposition.
I'd have to say, Bart, that you drove yourself out when you lost sight of the fact that you were sent to DC to represent your neighbors back in Michigan. See, you have to look them in the eye and know that you betrayed them, their voice, and lest we forget the unborn who you used as a political tool to get your 15 minutes. Too bad the 15 minutes were of shame and not fame. I feel sorry for you--knowing what you did and how you will have to explain yourself to your grandchildren that you were the great betrayer of the American people and the unborn.
History will not be kind to you, Mr. Stupak. We can only hope there are enough "Tea Party people" across America--the land of the free and the home of the brave--to take her back and elect people that will cause a reverse legislative revolution and restore this Constitutional Republic back to what the Founder's intended.
