At the 3:20 mark it shows Rick Santorum standing and applauding.

 

They Represent us…….

 

 

‘Three Missouri Republicans running to take on Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) in November were asked during a radio debate on KMOX what the federal minimum wage is and whether they would vote to increase it. None of the three knew what the minimum wage it, but all knew that they would vote against increasing it, regardless’.

‘Host Charlie Brennan asked the three candidates — businessman John Brunner, former State Treasurer Sarah Steelman, and Rep. Todd Akin — “What is the federal minimum wage? Would you vote to increase it?” Here are their responses to the first question’:

BRENNAN: ‘Okay, do you know what the minimum wage is’?

BRUNNER: ‘No sir’.

BRENNAN: ‘How about you Sarah Steelman’?

STEELMAN: ‘Uh…$7.50 an hour’.

BRENNAN: ‘Do you know what the minimum wage is’?

AKIN: ‘My guess is its somewhere in the 6 or 7, but I don’t know the exact number right now’.

‘Perhaps explaining their ignorance of the current minimum wage is the fact that none of the three candidates personally live anywhere near it’.

‘Akin owns two homes and receives an annual congressional salary of $174,000’.

‘Steelman has donated upwards of $400,000 to her own Senate campaign’.

‘Brunner tops them all, sporting a net worth of approximately $100 million’.

Tea Party politics

Now just WHO are they ‘representing’?

‘Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, I’ll just keep re-electing you’.
Reactionary politics.

Let’s put in new people that think like ‘real’ Americans!

‘Tea Party insurgents swept the Republicans into power in 2010, riding a wave of frustration with the status quo to a majority in the House of Representatives. But after less than two years, many seem to have become quite comfortable with the ways of Washington, or, in this case, Key Largo’:

‘That’s where we caught up with a select group of Republican freshmen, engaged in business as usual. But they didn’t come alone. They invited big campaign donors and lobbyists to join them – for a price. And we secretly sent our cameras along for a unique inside look at their first joint fundraiser, where special interests got the kind of access ordinary Americans can only dream of: on the golf course; over drinks at the resort bar; at a private beach lagoon’.

‘The hosts are veteran congressmen Spencer Bachus, of Alabama, Pete Sessions, of Texas, “and 12 of your favorite Republican freshmen!”

‘The 12: Sandy Adams (Fla.), Quico Canseco (Texas), Rick Crawford (Ark.), Bob Dold (Ill.), Sean Duffy (Wis.), Stephen Fincher (Tenn.), Mike Fitzpatrick (Penn.), Daniel Webster (Fla.), Mike Grimm (N.Y.), Nan Hayworth (N.Y.), Jim Renacci (Ohio) and Cory Gardner (Col)’.

‘Congressmen Canseco and Gardner were seen on camera heading in to host happy hour. To get in, donors had to pay at least $10,000’.

‘During his campaign, Gardner promised average voters would inspire his actions. One ad said, “I will always put Colorado families before the Washington special interests.”

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

 

 

Ah – politics in America!

Yep. ‘They’ did it so were agonna too!

‘Reader HRA sent this in (from here, click to embiggen), and it turns out that the site that sold it is currently down’:

‘Stumpy Stickers also once replaced the face of the president with the image of an ape accompanied by a cartoon of hooded members of the Klu Klux Klan, with the slogan “The original BOYS IN THE HOOD.”

‘To be fair, I’m sure these aren’t quite the words Mitt Romney would have used, Bill Maher said something racist once, and liberals criticized George Bush’.
