Kucinich in Obama's crosshairs
Washington Post ^

Posted on 03/15/2010 10:11:21 PM PDT by Chet 99

Air Force One took off from suburban Maryland today at 11:13 a.m. and landed 48 minutes later in Cleveland.

For Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) -- who says he plans to vote no on the president's health-care bill -- it must have felt like a much longer flight.

Obama invited Kucinich and undecided Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) to the ultimate pressure cooker as he tries to nail down a majority for his top domestic priority.

What was said at 35,000 feet is anyone's guess, and Kucinich is -- for once -- not talking. The president talked one on one with Kucinich aboard Air Force One on the flight, a White House spokesman said. But Obama's onetime presidential rival just smiled as he walked across the tarmac upon arrival in his home state.

It’s like a carnival. He must have been tall enough to ride. Obama said “here little boy, if you’re above this line you can go on the big boys ride. Airfarce 1.

President 0bama flew the most sophisticated and expensive Boeing 747 in the entire world from Washington, D.C. to Ohio?
He is seriously out-of-touch with sane people. I wonder what that absurd jaunt just cost the U.S. taxpayers?

The MO. is let us hang the American people and discontented for this bill in a mass of protests, government bureaucracy and laws, so they become dependent and cannot de-vote this bill.

It’s spun as seat insurance. The only health insured in there will be to traitors of the American people until the terrorists eat their hearts.

Tea Party are planning a protest at the Millington TN office of Rep John Tanner tomorrow just before noon.

Defeat Obamacare call list: List now contains the new MAYBES culled from FR posts. Be sure to call KNOWN RINOS too.


Code Red” - House Target List on Health Care

The National Republican Congressional Committee has published a target list on health care. In addition to continuing to contact the five Tennessee Democrat Congressmen, you can go to contact some of these targets. Much of the talk following Obama’s announcement has focused on how to defeat this second bill through reconciliation, but that is misleading because the first step to defeating Obamacare is not by concentrating on defeating the “fixer” bill but by defeating the Senate bill in the House when it goes to the floor for an up-or-down vote on Thursday, March 18th.

On the Bubble (Major developments from the “yes” and “no” columns in the House)

Congressional Dems on Twitter

And here are toll-free numbers we can use to call any Senators or Reps.
At the first number below you must wait through a tape recording urging you to tell your Rep or Senator to vote “yes” for the health care bill. Just hang on and when the recording is over, you will get the Capitol operator. Just ask for your Rep or Senator’s office. Then you will either talk to an aid or have the chance to leave a message for him/her to vote NO on the health care bill.

When you use the second number and the Capitol operator comes on, just ask for your Rep or Senator’s office. Every time I use this number I get the Rep or Senator’s answer machine, so it may be set up that way all the go to their answer machine. Either way you can leave a message to vote NO on the health care bill!

We need to use these toll free numbers that have been set up for the health care/ BO supporters and illegals to use! After all they are FREE!
1-800-828-0498 , 1-866-220-0044, 1-866-338-1015, 877-851-6437, 877-210-5351

Kucinich, Herrod Brown, George RINO Voinovich, they should all be proud of what they’ve done to Ohio, destroyed it.

Cleveland, just voted the worst place to live in America. Cincy, Toledo, Youngstown, all the large cities in Ohio are democrat cesspools.

Save us Obiwan Kasich!
