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 hes 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 Presidents 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 at least his wife now will be working next to Mrs. Obama in case he loses his job for selling out
He comes away from this with an ipod loaded with Obama speeches and a set of 25 DVDs selected by the American Film Institute.
“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”
Whew! At least the guy didn’t check in with any of them “constituants”.
Kucinich is just a moonbat. Principles? Sheesh.
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.
Maybe Barry promised him a pair of lifts for his shoes, so he could see eye to waist with his wife.
Do you like gladiator movies, Dennis?
When the adminstration holds a hostage over an open door, how long would it take you to break and “sign”?
Ever been in a cockpit, Dennis?
instant freeper spewer comedy classic post
The Munchkin From Mars sells out. Knock me over with a feather.
Will sell out to be a charter member of Obama's Mile High Lewinsky-Kucinich Club
He is a loon, but I’ve never seen him violate his principles, however whacky they are.
AND, an 8x12 Glossy, suitable for framing.....
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.
