Video: Landrieu Blames ABC Report of $100 Million Buyoff on 'Partisan Republican Bloggers'
Newsbusters ^ | November 21, 2009 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 11/21/2009 11:31:39 AM PST by Rufus2007

What's $100 million of taxpayer money between a few U.S. Senators?

After reports surfaced, originally from ABC News, and subsequently commented upon by prominent lefties, like U.S. News and World Report's Bonnie Erbe as my colleague Noel Sheppard pointed out, Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., took the Senate floor on Nov. 21 to announce she would vote in favor to proceed forward with the Senate Democratic leadership's health bill. But she also took time to respond to allegations that $100 million earmarked for the Louisiana was added to that legislation to sway her vote by referring to the likes of ABC News correspondent Jonathan Karl and Erbe as "very partisan Republican bloggers."

"I know that might time is up, but I would like to ask personal privilege for just one more minute to address an issue that has come up unfortunately in the last 24 hours by some very partisan Republican bloggers so I need to respond I think and will do so now," Landrieu said. "One of the provisions in the framework of this bill that I've just decided to move on to debate has to do with fixing a very difficult situation that Louisiana is facing and any other state that might have a catastrophic disaster - let's hope they don't - like we did in 2005."

Spin it all you want bitch, you took a bribe, and a bribe with tax money... nothing more. You are a perfect example of what exactly is wrong with the American political system.

This is proof that Obamacare will distribute healthcare based on politics—how powerful your Senator or Congressman is, how important your state is, whether you’re a member of a favored demographic group, race, or sex, or whether you’ve got political pull in Washington. They are already doing it, and the bill has not even been passed yet.

Thomas Jefferson would have never approved of this Louisiana purchase, but William Jefferson would be proud of the new Louisiana purchase: Mary Landreiu. I see a tv commercial here. Which Jefferson does Mary Landreiu most resemble? The Louisiana purchase has a whole new meaning now.

My guess in addition to the items we know about benefiting her state they also promised her all the $$$ she could want for her re-election campaign + what ever celebrities she wants, backing of some other pieces of major pork barrel legislation, a high paying job if she loses reelection and maybe a book deal or something similar so she can personally benefit.. The alternative if she votes no is being stripped of all committee assignments, blocking all bills she’s interested in that benefit her state, running an primary candidate against her with the full power of the Democrats and their various allies including SEIU and ACORN working against her, getting media allies to trash her family, etc. Now since Senators offered her between 100=300 mill for her district and who knows what else it’s legal.

If I tried the same thing I’d go to jail and she would to if she accepted. We need to know everything she was offered!!!!

"partisan" means Republican to liberal scumbags.

Just as "hate speech" means anything that goes against their kool-aid approved ideological talking points.

Even hookers get their cash in public. This $100 m bribe was tucked into the bill with no mention of Louisiana or Sen. Mary Landrieu. This was payment under the sheets.

Of all the things wrong with this Bill and Government run health care in general. What you state is by far the most insidious.

Mary, Mary, Mary,

Don’t you just hate when you are outed by those that are supposed to be helping you sweep the pesky payoff details under the rug????

Meanwhile the taxpayers are footing the bill for the payoff to you and for the health care bill that we don’t want in the first place. Me thinks that this payoff should be included in the health expense total.

The Guilty always blame the innocent. ALWAYS.

Hmmm, So Mary, it is just coincidence that you were on the fence regarding the ObamacareHealthControl Bill a week ago, but are strongly for it now that there is a curious $100 million add-on for Louisiana?

You are a traitor to our Nation, and I pray that you and the other socialist/liberal sell-outs in the House & Senate will be brought to justice - As Obama’s teleprompter so eloquently put it - in this life or the next.

How in the world is this woman still in office? It’s my recollection that the major reason that Katrina flood relief efforts were so badly bungled was because Landrieu was playing politics by trying to coordinate with Dem. party hacks sent from Washington rather than working with the Bush Administration. I had assumed that she had the sense not to run again after her incompetent performance. I’m surprised to see her name still popping up as an elected official.

Partisan Republican Blogger???? HUH? you mean we are not supposed to question, or it wasn't supposed to be known what you did in secret? How much of that money goes directly into your pockets at the expense of LA's future generations and ours? Looks like you will retire out in Great Style. Traitor!!!!

This is criminal what they are doing.

*Partisan GOP bloggers*?? Considering it is the same provision that 0bama promised GOP Rep. Cao, I don't see as how she can blame this on partisanship.

The jig is up, dope -- sorry, you got bought and we all know it. As for Lincoln, ironic that she will find herself in the same shoes as her former Blue Dog colleague in the House, Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky. Lincoln was right there and saw the Dem leadership twisting MMM's arm to vote for Clinton's first budget, she held out long past the time for voting had expired, but in the end, some promise from Clinton got her yea, she had her vote bought over the express wishes of her constituents -- and they sent her home.

Most of us already knew that Mary Landrieu was a whore (just like her father and others in her inbred family).

Harry Reid haggled on a price for her services.

And once again Americans everywhere are expected to pay the price for the screwing we are about to get from the whores in DC.

Benjamin Franklin once asked a woman at the court in Versailles:”Would you sleep with me for a million francs?”
She replied:”Oh monseiur, of course.”
Old Ben then asked:”Would you sleep with me for one franc?”
Highly indignant, the lady replied: Monseiur, what do you think I am?”
Ben answered:”We already know what you are, we are now discussing price.”

Chubby Mary got bought like a two-bit New Orleans whore.
