Senator Max Baucus (D-Montana), one of President Barack Obama's point men in the health care reform debate, is the first Democrat to publicly criticize the president for his recess appointment of Dr. Donald Berwick to oversee Medicare and Medicaid.

This liberal rat is just trolling for votes in his upcoming reelection. He pushed 0care, he needs to go down in flames.

The Senate was only in recess for the Independence Day holiday. They will be back in session on Monday. This couldn't have waited until then?

How’s it feel to be a useful idiot, Max?

You’ve screwed the pooch long enough and hopefully the good people of Montana know it.

Baucus, it would seem, really endorses this person if not his policies, but for some reason he is telling MT people differently. They are very easily fooled in MT too.

Unfortunately this rat was re-elected in 2008 so he will be around a while. Why states like Montana and the Dakotas elect rats I’ll never know!

He doesn't seem as concerned when Bozo issues his EOs, which also by pass the legislative process and in many cases are unconstitutional. EOs were never intended to be used to make law.

Loud complaints followed by quiet "Yes" votes.

Professional parasite.


Frowning takes 68 muscles.
Smiling takes 6.
Pulling this trigger takes 2.

This is just complete window-dressing for Baucus— “protesting” - oh really Sen. Baucus, are you going TO DO anything—and will any of your Senate colleagues do anything about having Dr. Death in charge of the poor and the old (that would be M’Caid and M’Care).
