Best Friends Forever at the SOTU

Well, President Obama is going to focus “like a laser on jobs” in the State of the Union address – one more time.

But this just about takes the cake for elected officials of the United States of America to engage in playing little kindergarten games such as this.  I am not even going to watch this charade.

For the first time in history, we have a president who is not able to stand up in front of a congress weighed against his party and take it like a man.  The whole thing is designed to make things  easier on him and the democrats because none of them ever thought there would be a republican speaker of the house sitting behind him.

Come on, President Obama.  Come out and ask them not to do this, to cut out the foolishness.  It will make you look like a statesman.

They are choosing partners to sit with.

  • Mary Landrieu and Olympia Snowe are BFF  for the SOTU
  • Dick Durbin and Mark Kirk  are the Land of Lincoln Laddies
  • Chuch Schumer and Tom Coburn are Partisan Pals
  • Southwest Soul-mates are McCain and Udall
  • and the Cutest Couple is Thune and Gillibrand

Lord have mercy.  No wonder our country is in the shape it’s in.  These are pretty much the same people who have been there for years presiding over the decline.  Well, Kirk is new, but the rest……

I hear that Mitch McConnell said he would sit where he always does.  Good for him.  I just hope these other guys at least buy a new pair of panties to wear.

Republican Congressmen who voted “Yes” to Cap and Trade

It’s amazing just how hard it is to find out who voted how on this vote.  The MSM is saying it passed with “virtually no Republican support.”  “Virtually no” turns out to be 8.  (219 to 212)

Thanks to Michelle Malkin, here’s who the 8 Republican weasels are who did support it:

Introducing the GOP’s Cap-And-Tax 8…

The 8 cap-and-tax Republican turncoats again are:

Bono Mack (CA) (202) 225-5330
Castle (DE) (202) 225-4165
Kirk (IL) (202) 225-4385 (And he’s seriously considering running for Senate!)
Lance (NJ) (202) 225-5361
LoBiondo (NJ) (202) 225-6572
McHugh (NY) (202) 225-4611
Reichert (WA) (202) 225-7761
Smith (NJ) (202) 225-3765

Reminder: The two Republicans who didn’t vote: Jeff Flake (AZ) and John Sullivan (OK).

Here’s why: Flake had a “family conflict” (his daughter is reportedly in a beauty pageant in Alabama tomorrow) and Sullivan is undergoing alcohol treatment. As I noted earlier today, Dem. Rep. Patrick Kennedy was pulled out of rehab to cast his vote.

Thank you so much, Michelle, for this information.  I hope you don’t mind too much me copying you but I want to get this out and it is almost impossible to find. (Got the tip from your Twitter post).

See: Michelle Malkin.com for a list of the 44 democrats who voted against the bill.

Full roll call vote here.
