Stupak fight all part of the grand scheme
When you watch this video you will understand something we should have known all along. Namely, Stupak and his supposed “anti-abortion” Democrats basically were going to vote “yes” all along.
In the tactics with Nancy Pelosi the plan surely went like this: We will let you pretend to fight to the very end, press your “strong moral convictions”, and then at the last minute we will come in with a way for you to vote in the affirmative. Plans within plans, people.
The problem is that the American people are now aware of how these people play their games–we will not be fooled any more. I have said the same thing about Minnesota Congressman James Oberstar, a man who does not even live within the state he say she represents. Oberstar has always tried to say he was a “moderate” Democrat via his positions on abortion and gun rights. With his yes vote on this bill, we know he does not have a strong position against abortion–it was just a stance he took to appear as moderate. But it seems there are few moderate Democrats left in either the house OR Senate. And what about Representative Oberstar’s “Strong stance against gun control”? How long will it last? Only until it comes up for a vote is my guess.
Remember and do not be fooled.
Getting back to Bart Stupak, an anti-abortion group that was about to award him has changed their mind:
Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund President Marjorie Dannenfelser said the group was revoking its “Defender of Life” award to Stupak, which was to be awarded at its Wednesday night gala.
“We were planning to honor Congressman Stupak for his efforts to keep abortion-funding out of health care reform. We will no longer be doing so,” Dannenfelser said. “Let me be clear: any representative, including Rep. Stupak, who votes for this health care bill can no longer call themselves ‘pro-life.’”
They are not being fooled anymore, either.
Remember the name, Dan Benishek, he is Bart Stupak’s opponent. I set forth a plan, among others on facebook, to “send a message” to Congressman Stupak after betraying his constituents. The plan was to get to 5000 “friends” from where he was before the betrayal, when he was at a mere 756. Last night, he broke 7,776 members, and today is at 13,328 on his facebook page “Benishek for Congress”.
People will send a message, and they will be heard.
