Fmr Dem/Actor Paul Rodriguez Begs Obama to Side w/ Farmers Over Endangered Fish
NewsBusters ^ | September 18, 2009 | Brad Wilmouth

Posted on 09/18/2009 5:49:10 PM PDT by kingattax

As FNC's Sean Hannity devoted his show Hannity on Thursday evening to the plight of California farmers who are suffering unemployment because the federal government is withholding water from their crops in favor of saving endangered fish, Hannity began the show, specially titled "The Valley That Hope Forgot," by interviewing comedian and former Democrat Paul Rodriguez, chairman of the California Latino Water Coalition. Rodriguez, who last year supported Barack Obama but famously turned GOP after Democrats refused to help him and other farmers obtain water for their crops, made a plea for help to President Obama on Hannity's show:

Mr. President, with all due respect, we pray that you will read our letter and look at our dilemma. We don't want you to give us a loan. We didn't do anything wrong. We did everything right. We grew more food than anybody else with less water. And for that, our reward was you cut the water off. Come on, what's up?

After Rodriguez observed that it is a "bad comedy" and a "bad joke" that unemployed California farmers are having to wait in line at food banks to collect food grown in other countries because America's government will not allow them to use the existing water supply to grow crops that could feed much of the nation, Hannity first brought up Rodriguez's past support for Obama:

SEAN HANNITY: Let me ask you this. There's a political side to this, Paul. And, by the way, we won't hold it against Paul, but you supported Barack Obama.

PAUL RODRIGUEZ, LAUGHING: You had to bring that up

What Paul happens to be experiencing, along with many others duped into voting for the Kenyan, is the political equivalent of "coyote morning"
Elections have consequences...

“Deja vu all over again”,didn`t we fight this battle against and land grabing watermelons during the Slick Willy regime?Thats about the time I joined Freerepublic,and why I turned from lurker to full blown Conservative blogger. I wonder how many people Obarky has kicked off their complacent asses.

Just like they do with oil. There's a pattern here. And it has nothing to do with fish, caribou or clean air... and everything to do with crippling a nation of free men so they may be transformed into slaves.

Being disappointed w/ Obama doesn’t mean Rodriguez is a “former” Dem. Did he say he was?

Huh? I didn't know that Paul Rodriguez did anything "famously"

Not to mention I have to question the motivation of people who change from Dem to Repub after years of being a liberal lackey, especially when it's only because it suits their purposes.

Seems to me that these farmers need to take the water back and the h&!! with some 2” fish. Range wars were fought over less. When the law is used against the innocent, there is no law.

Just another way for the communists in peta and administration to control. Smelt dance all along the west coast every year, millions of them. So what’s so special about this smelt? Control is the name of the game. People wake up!!

Hey, Paul Rodriguez has been asking for this for decades.

When it's finally his oxe that is getting gored, he finally wakes up and cries "foul".

Screw him and the horse he rode in on.

How's that "Rope and Chains" working out for you, Paul?

These people voted for the BEPLN/BOH and now they are paying for it. Should the water be turned back on by BOH, these not too bright people would pee on themselves, parade in the fields and venerate the idiot in the WH and in the next election vote again for the mullato, islamic, DemoRat.

Suffer for your political ignorance and Hannity, why don’t you find something more constructive to do... like staying home and playing with your kids and your dog.

When they are not wrecking the US cause they are out of power they are working over the UN and making plans for the US for next time Americans forget and put them in power again. They NEVER go away. They are anchored in the Universities and UN. We fund them with our tax money.
