Dennis Kucinich Sells Out His Principles on Obamacare For Frequent Flyer Miles
David Horowitz's NewsReal Blog ^ | Paul Cooper

Posted on 03/17/2010 11:06:29 AM PDT by Michael van der Galien

What do principles matter if you get to fly on Air Force One with President Obama? Senators Ben Nelson and Mary Landrieu needed millions of dollars to throw out their principles. Congressman Dennis Kucinich of Ohio only needed a joy ride. I hope the guy at least got to meet the pilot and take home a pair of tiny wings for his jacket.

Kucinich has vehemently attacked Obamacare since it first appeared to have no universal coverage. The Congressman has passionately pursued universal, single-payer health care since he’s been in office. It is his big issues (besides being a complete pacifist when it comes to war issues). Yet with one ride on the President’s plane, Kucinich has flushed all his principles on the subject. And to make matters worse, he offers no real reasons why. He wants Obama to do well is the closest reason he gives. Kucinich merely promises to keep on fighting for what he wants while he votes for a bill he hates.

“I do not retract (my) criticisms (of the bill)…I have doubts about the bill. I do not think it is a step toward anything I have supported in the past. This is not the bill I wanted to support…However, after careful discussions with President Obama, Speaker Pelosi, my wife Elizabeth, and close friends, I have decided to cast a vote in favor of the legislation.” – Rep. Dennis Kucinich

Well, the last time I checked, Kucinich’s principles were a little flaky. This comes as know surprise to me.

Liberals, especially immature whack-jobs like Kucinich, have no principles. They're available for the highest bidder.

Dennis Kucinich and the word “principles” do not belong in the same sentence. Kucinich is null and void!

I think it went more like this:

Obambi: You want Socialized Medicine, I want socialized medicine. But we cant get it right now- so we need this foot in the door- we will drive the insurance companies out of business and then take over- got it? That’s been my 20 year plan all along, you little sh*t so vote for it or I will have Rahm Enanuelle slap you silly. And take off that ridiculous hair piece.

STOP! ... EXTREME DANGER AHEAD PROCEED AT YOUR OWN PERIL, DENNIS.

When/if you change your mind about selling out your belief system it will be TOO late. Your career is over. Your HONOR is in the gutter.

No one will have any trust, or faith in your word ever again.

STOP!!!

If solar energy ever supplies 100% of our energy needs, it means that vast fields of solar arrays are shading most of the earth.

I wonder where plants are going to get their solar energy for photosynthesis?

Dennis was vocally pro-life for years until he decided to run for president & "switched" his position.

(Of course, this puts him in the company of many before him on the abortion issue - from both parties)

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 http://www.votervoice.net/link/clickthrough/ext/94697.aspx 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.

Congressional Dems on Twitter
http://www.arrghpaine.com/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 time...to 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!

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 time...to 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

You all don’t get it, it wasn’t just the airplane ride, it was what Obama promised him while up there. . . .

A trip to Area 51 to meet his parents.

Harry Truman managed to retain his principles, but observed, “My choices in life were either to be a piano player in a whore house or a politician. And to tell the truth, there’s hardly any difference”.

Kucinich is an ultra-liberal and did not sell out his principles at all! This is the real deal for him.

He was just having some fun with Fox and MSNBC pretending that he was going to vote against it.

Rahm Emmanuel threatened to throw Kucinich off Air Force One mid-flight if he didn’t change his vote. That’s the way it is done in Chicago!

Did he like the probe he got on Air Force One better than the one he got aboard the other alien’s flying craft?

The phone numbers in Ohio are auto forwarding to voice mail boxes that are full and the DC phone is always busy!

He is a loon, but I’ve never seen him violate his principles, however whacky they are.

You apparently don't recall that Dennis Kucinich was for years a dyed in the wool pro-lifer. Until he inexplicably got the presidential bug. He then miraculously reconsidered and decided that killing babies in the womb was actually OK with him after all.

Dennis Kucinich is a proven spineless weasel who has sold out before for whatever he thinks is politically expedient. This flip-flop does not surprise me much, if at all.

No he didn’t. He always wanted the public option. Obama whispered in his ear on that flight to Ohio that the insurance companies would eventually fail under Obamacare and he would get his wish — a public option.

Thanks, I didn’t know that.

Yeah, I remember GHWB switching to run with Reagan.
