Nebraskans so disgusted with Ben Nelson they canít even eat around him
Hot Air ^ | January 14, 2010 | ALLAHPUNDIT

If this guy was up for reelection in November instead of 2012, he’d already be preparing for a permanent vacation a la Dodd and Dorgan. As it is, he’ll limp along for two more long years — unless he finally crumbles and decides to be the 41st “no” vote after all. Or rather, the 42nd, if/when Scott Brown wins.

Tell me again about running on ObamaCare in the midterms, champ.

Nebraska Sen. Ben Nelson and his wife were leaving dinner at a new pizza joint near their home in Omaha one night last week when a patron began complaining about Nelson’s decisive vote in favor of the Senate’s health care bill.

Other customers started booing. A woman yelled, “Get him the hell out of here!” And the Nelsons and their dining companions beat a hasty retreat.

Bill Nelson in Florida and Representarive Cathy Castor of Tampa are afraid to show their faces too. They are babbling about a high speed rail from Tampa to Orlando that is supposed to create jobs. What a joke these people are. But dangerous.

I would have walked over to his table and told him what I think and it wouldn’t have been very pretty.

Before this is over, these bastards won’t even venture out in public.

Within a year, there will be very, very few 0bama bumper stickers to be seen.

People are getting beyond PO’d.

He even said he didn’t hear any complaints when at the pizza joint. He said people there came up to him and thanked him. Seriously, I can’t remember where I read it but his spokesman said it.

He can't - his price has been met.

It's that Sleeping Giant that Mister Nelson and his collectivist chums have tripped over and awakened, while conspiring to take from you your health plan, and to confiscate your earnings and put you in a nice, lonnnnggg line to see nurse Ratchett.

(They still don't grasp the sheer magnitude of the voter revolt.)

Had Ben found a new Pizza Joint with a menu OVER a 1000 pages long? If not, how could he have wanted to be there?

Did Ben bring his DC staff, to decide what he’d like?
He doesn’t seem to respect the insights of his “in-State” staff, or had he sent the menu to the DNC & Harry Reid?

I’d never heard of her until she made her absurd comments about the Tea Party patriots over the summer. Agreed though . . . she is awful!

They are babbling about a high speed rail from Tampa to Orlando that is supposed to create jobs.

Make that "union jobs." And it will supposedly be built in the middle of I-4 which is recovering from "It's not really a sinkhole, it's only a depression" problems with 4 lanes squeezed down to one and alternate routes recently closed due to sinkholes.

Thhey probably did, but, not in those exact words. They may have been saying “you” but I don’t believe that it was preceeded by “thank”.

Is there enough courage in the state to repeal his election?

I’ve called Bill Nelson’s office more than seven times since the summer. Left our names and address, first asking for tickets to the town hall (he never held any) and then to let him know how we felt about what he was doing to my 92 yr. old MIL and all her friends. Nothing. Nada Zip Zilch.

I don’t care if it’s Jack the Ripper running against him next time, I’m as so there!

Can you imagine the traffic to build that White Whale that will get about as many riders as the YBOR Shuttle. And Castor the other day opened a new Housing project for the welfare Queens. They Gotta Go!
