Tonight's show: Apparently opposing John Boehner gets you fired from your job these days. Did Sarah Palin cross the line with recent comments linking water-boarding to baptism? Did Rand Paul jump the shark by endorsing Arlen Specter...err...Susan Collins? When establishment candidates write the Democrats' commercials for them. Atheists demand punishment for praying in military. Turns out Democrat NBA owner about to receive a lifetime achievement award from the NAACP is a racist. Secretary of State John Kerry calls Israel an "apartheid state."
Hypocrisy is defined as a feigning to be what one is not or to believe what one does not. Republicans Slam Stimulus On Fifth Anniversary — But Most Took Credit For It Back Home BY IGOR VOLSKY ON FEBRUARY 17, 2014 AT 12:00 PM Monday marks the five-year anniversary of the passage of the American Recovery Act, President Obama’s $800 billion stimulus package that invested in everything from infrastructure projects to electronic medical health care records and alternative energy sources. Every single Republican in the House and almost every Republican in the Senate — with the exception of Former Sens. Olympia Snowe (R-ME), Arlen Specter (R-PA), and Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) — voted against the measure and today the GOP continues to deride the law as wasteful an ineffective. But as ThinkProgress reported throughout 2009, over half of the GOP caucus praised the effects of the stimulus or took credit for the federal dollars in their home districts and states — despite repeatedly voting against it in Wa ...

2 of the 7 types of politicians follow. For the other 5 click on the article. REPUBLICAN Libtards: The Liberal Democrat in Disguise. You will typically find these ‘Yankee’ types in the North East. They are essentially the same as The Ignorant Do Gooder Libtard, with the only difference being that they are members of the Republican Party instead. These self righteous Political Puritans see it as their noble calling to water down the “extremism” of the Southern and Western Republicans. Examples: Olympia Snowe, Susan Collins, Mike Bloomberg, Arlen Specter (deceased), Scott Brown, Chris Christie REPUBLICAN Moderates: The Gutless, Spineless, Supine “Moderate.” Very similar to the Careerist, the “Moderate” is driven by fear of the liberal news media. He may actually be quite conservative at heart, but the minute The New York Times or Washington Post fires a few warning shots over any given issue, the “moderate” instantly soils his panties, caves in, bends over and begs to cut a deal with ...

No one should ever forget this. Thanks to Arlen Specter and senators. Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins of Maine, the GOP wasn't able to block the 2009 stimulus, and saved this country from going into a deep Depression. I firmly believe that. Those three senators personified profiles in courage by going against their party for the better of the nation. RIP Arlen Specter
In 2009, the modern Tea Party movement got underway shortly after President Barack Obama took office and he and House Democrats subsequently passed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 without a single Republican vote. The stimulus act became law in February after three Senate Republicans -- Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania (who has since become a Democrat) and Maine Sens. Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins -- crossed party lines and voted in favor of it. The lack of bipartisanship outraged many conservatives and even a few moderates who saw the $787 billion "emergency" expenditure as a demonstration of wasteful spending and an egregious growth of government
Here is something for those who may be tempted to believe that Mitt and the GOP somehow support women more than does Obama, just because the GOP and Mitt say so: "The Senate voted 72 to 23 to invoke cloture on S. 181 on January 15, 2009. (The vote to invoke cloture ends debate on a bill, and usually leads to a final vote within a few days.) The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act passed the Senate, 61-36, on January 22, 2009. The votes in favor included every Democratic senator (except Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts, who was absent from the vote because of health issues), two independents who caucused with Democrats, and five Republican Senators - Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania, Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe of Maine, Kay Bailey Hutchinson of Texas, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. Specter later switch to the Democrats; the others include all female Republican Senators."
