I just have a gut feeling that Byrd will stay off the floor even if feeling better, to deprive Obama of his majority vote. I don’t think Byrd likes Obama (maybe shades of his Ku Klux Klan past, or maybe because Byrd is actually much more moderate than Obama, and sees that Obama is trashing his beloved Constitution).
I think Byrd is a lot more honorable than Obama, believe it or not, and would intentionally deprive Obama from carrying through with his radical agenda, if he can possible aid in doing it. Byrd sent a letter to Obama from his sickbed protesting, I think the Chrsyler/GM stuff and how it was being handled. I think Byrd doesn’t like Obama. Just a gut feeling, as I said.
You may be right. Byrd may truly not like Obambi!
Oh yeah! Byrd was a dixiecrat and you can take the boy out of the south but you can’t take the south out of the boy/
He does not like Obama, that is a given. And now with selling our great country down s^^ts creek without a boat or paddle, he will do all he can even from his death bed.
