Rep Bart Stupak, (D-MI), American, Sell-Out, Bitch


The influential (supposedly) pro-life democrat vote that President Soetoro Obama needed in order to pass his massive health care reform legislation, announced his retirement today after 9 terms. An emotional Rep. Bart Stupak of Michigan said at his press conference today, that "I’ve accomplished what I want to do. Either I run again and I’d be there forever or it’s time for me to make the break; it’s time for me to move on”. Republicans however were quick to put their own spin on the abrupt retirement of one of the most heavily courted, pro-life democrats in the recent health care debate, saying...

“After selling his soul to Nancy Pelosi, it appears that Bart Stupak finally found the courage to tell her no," said Ken Spain, communications director of the National Republican Congressional Committee. "The political fallout over the Democrats’ government takeover of health care has put the political careers of many Democrats in jeopardy, thanks in part to Stupak’s decision to abandon his alleged pro-life principles."


Republicans believe that other anti-abortion Democrats, like freshman Reps. Steve Driehaus (D-Ohio) and Kathleen Dahlkemper (D-Pa.), will also face serious trouble because of their support for the health care legislation without strict anti-abortion provisions." Link

Stupak only voted for the massive overhaul of the US health care system after receiving certain assurances from President Mugabe Obama. "Stupak announced that a presidential promise in the form of an executive order, stating public funds would not be used in abortions and that “conscientious objectors” such as Catholic healthcare institutions would not be forced to conduct abortions, had addressed his concerns." Link. However, "GOP Rep. Mike Pence blasted the executive order, calling Obama “the most pro-abortion American president in American history.” He pointed out one obvious shortcoming of an executive order: It can be rescinded at will by a future president, or even by President Obama himself if he later changes his mind."

Already, Planned Parenthood's executive president Cecile Richards is hailing the legislation as "a huge victory for women's health, but our work isn't over yet." Richards went on to say "'What the president’s executive order did not do is include the complete and total ban ... that Congressman Bart Stupak (D–MI) had insisted upon," Richards continued..."So while we regret that this proposed Executive Order has given the imprimatur of the president to Senator Nelson’s language, it is critically important to note that it does not include the Stupak abortion ban.". Richards also announced, "Thanks to supporters like you, we were able to keep the Stupak abortion ban out of the final legislation and President Obama did not include the Stupak language in his Executive Order". Link


It's only speculation on my part but I believe that Stupak is experiencing buyer's remorse in voting for the bill. While Stupak was able to secure $726,409 in grants for little used airports in his district two days prior to the vote, Red State's Dave Poff calculated that to 61 cents for each of baby to be aborted. Link



The bottom line people is that if you have principles, stick to them. In the long run, people will think better of you for it. It's been rumored that Obama had the votes even without Stupak's block of pro-life democrats, but why compromise your standards for a few measly bucks? What do you think people will remember about Bart Stupak 20 years from now? That he secured some airport grant money for his district? Or that he eventually caved and voted counter to his earlier claimed convictions? The smart money is on the latter.

after receiving certain assurances from President Mugabe Obama.

Haw haw haw! I can't tell the difference between Mugabe and Obama! They're both scary black men! Haw haw haw, I made a funny!

JD Curtis said...

No. You missed the point entirely. Both are executive leaders born in Africa until I see evidence otherwise.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry, Hitler... I mean J.D.
(Don't miss the point, you're both white murderers until I see evidence otherwise)

These conspiracy theories have been checked and rechecked. I know you're scared witless but face facts; Obama is American and the President of the United States.

OK, what hospital was Obama born in and who was the attending physician?

Why can't these questions be answered with any official documentation?

If you feel confident that you can prove that he was born in Hawaii, then simply click on this link and claim your $100,000 (USD) reward. (Of course your going to give me a cut of it since I steered you towards it, won't you?)

If you feel confident that you can prove the moon exists, go to this link and claim your $100,000 reward.

(Of course you'll never get the money because you'll never be able to prove the moon "to his satisfaction" and the money doesn't exist)

Anyone else who is reading; Wiki has a great list of Barack Obama citizenship conspiracy theories -

For comparison, the Moon is visible about 28 days out of eACH monh while Obama's Long Form Birth Certificate has never beeen visible. Ever.

Of all of the contraversies that have swirled around the Obama mystique, this one is easily the most avoidable of all however Obama refuses to clear it up.

Froggie said...

BO is doing exactly what he promised to do.
I had a good laugh about the republicans bragging how health care was dead when Scott Brown was elected to Ted Kennedy's seat in Mass.

JD, if you think you want to go back to a time when Laizzez Faire was the norm, read "The Jungle" by Upton Sinclair and "The History of the Standard Oil Company" by Ida Tarbel.

During the years of slavery there were more white men in the north being paid starvation wages and working in unsafe conditions. There were more of them killed during those years than there were slaves in the south that were killed.

It took a socialist movement to get trade unions to protect the workers from the industrialists.

A purely capitalist system cannot exist as it would leave millions of people dying in the street and undereducated.

Stupak: See ya', BEEEEEOOOTCH!

Jeez, the moon seeming to be visible was the first objection explained on that page. No $100,000 for you. Like your page where "Hawaiian 'Certification of Live Birth'... does not constitute valid proof to claim the reward." and "Born in USA still might not qualify"

while Obama's Long Form Birth Certificate has never beeen visible. Ever.

Ever? Are you serious? In case you don't get it - You are the same as the moon guy. There is no evidence that will convince you.

Of all of the contraversies that have swirled around the Obama mystique, this one is easily the most avoidable of all however Obama refuses to clear it up.

All the conspiracy theories HAVE been cleared up.

As compared to the high literacy and low mortality rates Havana, Harare, Hanoi and other hellish capitals of workers' paradises. Speaking of distinguished world capitals where capitalism is not exactly the order of the day, the literacy and mortality rates in Washington, DC are nothing to write home about either.

And back to the original point of this post, I will not miss Bart's stupakity.

JD Curtis said...

Thanks MDC,

Has anyone actually read the exchange between socialism-lite, liberal democrat, talk-show host Phil Donohue and economist Milton Friedman?

"Donahue asks: "When you see around the globe the mal-distribution of wealth, the desperate plight of millions of people in undeveloped countries … when you see the greed and the concentration of power, did you ever have a moment of doubt about capitalism and whether greed is a good idea to run on?"

Friedman responds, "What is greed? Of course none of us are greedy; it's only the other fellow who's greedy. The world runs on individuals pursuing their separate interests. … In the only cases in which the masses have escaped from the kind of grinding poverty you're talking about … they have had capitalism and largely free trade. … So that the record of history is absolutely crystal clear: that there is no alternative way so far discovered of improving the lot of the ordinary people that can hold a candle to the productive activities that are unleashed by a free enterprise system."

Later, when asked by Mr. Donahue whether capitalism rewards virtue, Friedman says, "Is it really true that political self-interest is nobler somehow than economic self-interest? … Just tell me where in the world you're going to find these angels who are going to organize society for us? I don't even trust you to do that!" Link

"Just tell me where in the world you're going to find these angels who are going to organize society for us? I don't even trust you."

That is why we are set up as a constitutional republic.
We are free to elect our "govenours."

Those governments you refer to are oligarchial dictatorships. We remain a free and democrtic constitutional rpublic.
That is the difference that you don't like to recognize.

But Freidman was referring to the economy, not government.

Just out of curiosity Froggie, if BHO were to appoint an "economy czar", do you have any doubt that they would be more Marx and less Hayek?

Froggie said...

Yes, I do. We will not be seeing collectivism embraced in the foreseeable future.

Here's a photo of some 'Tea Party' protesters... just change the 'communism' to 'socialism', the 'antichrist' sign can stay -

Yeah. I went there.

JD Curtis said...

What does the integration of schools in Arkansas in the 1960's have to do with today's Tea Party?

I looked it up Frogster and Obama's economic czar is Paul Volcker.

JD Curtis: Both are executive leaders born in Africa until I see evidence otherwise.


But that's nothing to do with race, right? I mean, you'd be saying the same thing if Obama were a white man, right?
