Quote of the Day: “Darn That Stupid TARP! Er, Sorry, Bro.”

August 31st, 2010 by mopns · No Comments

Since Robin now feels it’s necessary to throw her brother Russ under the bus to win an election, we thought we’d help her by highlighting Russ’s profligate spending with an excerpt from a 2008 post:

“Carnahan, who was elected in 2004, has managed to pass two bills while in Congress; an arterial road in Jefferson County and the renaming of a post office that’s 250 miles away in – Kansas City! Now we learn from his Republican opponent Chris Sander, that Carnahan wants to add to this impressive list of accomplishments by sending $300 Million dollars of our money overseas for “family planning.” Read more…

Is Obamacare the next bus poor Russ should look out for:


“Time provides further evidence that ObamaCare support is hazardous to political health. Democratic Senate nominee Robin Carnahan, whose brother Rep. Russ Carnahan voted for ObamaCare, could muster only a “lukewarm statement” of–well, we guess we’ll be generous and call it support:

The statement by spokesman Linden Zakula was cryptic: “If the issue is approved by the voters, there is some question about what would be the practical implication since it would be an issue of state law pre-empting federal law. But when it comes to this issue in general, as a breast-cancer survivor [Carnahan] takes the issue of health care very personally, and thinks it makes a lot more sense to fix the things that still need fixing instead of repealing the entire bill, or opting out, and going back to insurance companies making out like bandits and denying coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.” Read more…

Does Robin also believe that people who oppose Obamacare are “attack[ing] our representative form of government?”
