BLACKWATER BACKED... BY 30 REPUBLICAN KOOKS-- AND NO ONE ELSE

>


Will Bush also veto a bill to rein in the excesses his pal Erik Prince's mercenary outfit, Blackwater? I mean, it wasn't unanimous. It only passed by 389- 30, all 30 being ultra-right reactionary Republicans. Every single Democrat and the vast majority of Republicans voted for David Price's legislation to hold contractors like Blackwater accountable (H.R. 2740) for their criminal behavior... in U.S. courts. You can understand why right-wingers are outraged, of course. Right? Will Bush veto? Of course even before Bush has to veto, will Miss McConnell obstruct?

Watch Congressman Joe Sestak, a former Admiral, explain why this bill is important and should not be vetoed.



So who were the Republicans who voted no, who wanted to let Blackwater continue committing egregious war crimes in the name of the United States of America with zero accountability? You'll recognize many of the names. These are men who have cheered Bush along all the way to our country's disgrace and along the road to ruin in Iraq:
Rodney Alexander (R-LA)
Richard Baker (R-LA)
Joe Barton (R-TX)
C.W. Boustany (R-LA)
Paul Broun (R-GA)
Michael Burgess (R-TX)
Steve Buyer (R-IN)
Chris Cannon (R-UT)
Nathan Deal (R-GA)
John Doolittle (R-CA)
Trent Franks (R-AZ)
Planet Denny Hastert (R-IL)
Pete Hoekstra (R-MI)
Duncan Hunter (R-CA)
Sam Johnson (R-TX)
Doug Lamborn (R-CO)
John Linder (R-GA)
Jim McCrery (R-LA)
Jeff Miller (R-FL)
Gary Miller (R-CA)
Joe Pitts (R-PA)
Tom Price (R-GA)
Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA)
Pete Sessions (R-TX)
John Shadegg (R-AZ)
Tom Tancredo (R-CO)
Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA)
Don Young (R-AK)

Now there's a list of pure unadultered garbage. Can someone point out something worthwhile bout even one of these jerkoffs? This list is so bad that not even Mean Jean Schmidt, Michele Bachmann, Marsha Blackburn, or Patrick McHenry would get on board this crazy train.


UPDATE: CHRIS SHAYS HAS LOST HIS MIND... AGAIN... COMPLETELY-- AND WHAT PART OF MISSISSIPPI DOES HE REPRESENT?

Jumpin' Jesus on a pogo stick!! Joe Pitts is god awful. He has to have a record as bad as some of the worst reactionary rubber stamps. I am glad I don't live 30 miles farther west or else he'd be my rep. He's a cretin, plain and simple.

Jimmy,

I'm in Pa too..13 th Congressional district

It really sad that Lois Herr didn't win...She got absolutely no help or $$$ from the Congressional Dems. With at least Chester leaning a little blue, maybe we can get rid of that sad excuse of a Congress critter Pitts. Speaking of Pa did you read that Santorum wants to run for Governor?

I was looking for Bachmann on that list before I got to the end. I'm not surprised that you pointed her out as one you'd expect to flaunt her insanity. Not my district, but..

I've posted my reaction to seeing my representative, Michael Burgess (TX-26) on that list of bone-heads. Definitely embarrassed that this tool is from my district.

Quite seriously, anyone who voted against this bill will have to explain to a higher power. No explanation to intelligent mortals could possibly make any sense.
