ObamaCare Passed by Drunks: Senator Max Baucus In A Drunken Tirade On Senate Floor
David Horowitz's NewsRealblog ^ | 26 December, 2009 | Nancy Morgan

Posted on 12/27/2009 7:32:49 AM PST by Michael van der Galien

During the general debate on the health care legislation that recently passed the Senate, Senator Max Baucus, Democrat from Montana, took to the floor of the Senate and engaged in a drunken tirade. Oblivious to the fact that he was slurring his words and mangling his sentences, Senator Baucus shouted down opponents as he let loose a rambling, and at times incoherent, tirade against those dastardly Republicans who refused to be bipartisan.

This drunk is the Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, charged with overseeing our taxpayer dollars. As is clearly evident from this video, the less than honorable Baucus should not be in charge of a toll booth, much less have a say in the crafting of legislation that will affect every single American.

For shame.

Watch the video at NewsReal. Baucus is truly pathetic.

“Was Democrats’ Health Care Strategy Written In Federal Prison?
Rep. Schakowsky’s husband, Robert Creamer, used to be the leader of Citizen
Action/Illinois. He also founded its predecessor, Illinois Public Action, in which Ms.
Schakowsky served as Program Director. He runs a political consulting firm, the
Strategic Consulting Group, which lists ACORN and the SEIU among its clients and
which made $541,000 working for disgraced former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich.

“Creamer resigned from Citizen Action/Illinois after the FBI began investigating him for
bank fraud and tax evasion at Illinois Public Action. He was convicted in 2006 and
sentenced to five months in federal prison in Terre Haute, Indiana, plus eleven months of house arrest.
While in prison—or “forced sabbatical,” he called it—Creamer wrote a lengthy political
manual, Listen to Your Mother: Stand Up Straight! How Progressives Can Win (Seven
Locks Press, 2007). The book was endorsed by leading Democrats and their allies,
including SEIU boss Andy Stern—the most frequent visitor thus far to the Obama White
House—and chief Obama strategist David Axelrod, who noted that Creamer’s tome
“provides a blueprint for future victories.”

Because they have a filibuster proof majority n the US Senate, and think they can do what they like, and piss on the American people with impunity.
But patience. Every day brings us closer to the 2010 elections. It's going to be a bloodbath for these vermin.

2010 elections will be way too late . We need a national strike NOW and we need to use the tactics of the Left back at them. Massive demonstrations , sit ins., boycotts , blocked traffic and aggressive protest are needed.2010 elections ??? What make you think there will be elections in 2010 ? Maybe the appearance of elections will happen but that’s it .

Watch the video at NewsReal. Baucus is truly pathetic.

They are all pathetic - nothing but well-dressed thieves. A reckoning is coming and they are gonna be mighty surprised. And I'm not just talking about the 2010 elections.

I love swatting ‘RATS as much as the next FReeper, but I’d look before I lept on this one. The slurred speech could be from a speech impediment or neurological condition (e.g., a mild stroke or Parkinson’s disease) and if so, we’d look like jerks. I’d suggest getting some corroboration before attacking him as a drunk.

(Of course, if does have a neurological condition and has been concealing it from his constituents, the coverup is a legitimate issue.)

Good grief! I love how the DEMS talk about bipartisanship, when it is they, who in reality, won’t work with the Republicans. Any amendments they put forth or ideas are shot down, or voted down. They want them to take up their banner, but, refuse to pay any attention to what the Republicans want.

I hate this bunch of sleezeballs and liars!

I watched Baucus for hours during his committee’s discussion of the bill. He has no speech impediment. Stop making excuses for these jerks who are drunk on power.
