Obama Praises ‘Courageous’ Markey (CO-4) for ‘Risky’ Votes
National Review ^ | October 14, 2010 | Michael Sandoval

Barack Obama named three Democratic Representatives that stood out for their “courageous” and “risky” votes given the circumstances of their own districts:

Cory Gardner’s campaign responded, agreeing with President Obama that Markey’s votes have put her congressional future in jeopardy. “The President may want to spin Representative Markey’s votes as being courageous, but the people of the 4th Congressional District see things differently,” said Rachel Boxer, spokeswoman for the Gardner campaign. “Supporting the President’s healthcare takeover and massive stimulus bill is going to cost Representative Markey her job.”

That’s similar to the Kennedy Center “Profiles in Courage Award” which is often presented to some swing vote Dem who votes for another Tax increase upon the great unwashed.

Obama is going to do for them what he did for Governors races in Virginia and New Jersey and Martha Coakley.

It’s a truly courageous act, to stand up and tell those you “rule”, that you know whats good for them better than they do.

Sometimes, the ignorant masses just gotta be told to shut up and obey.

I wonder how this coming debacle will affect Bill Clinton’s reputation as a Dem superpolitician? After all, he assured these “courageous” folks that it was the failure to vote in HilaryCare that caused the ‘94 electoral shift and that if they just held their noses and voted with Obama, all would be well by their next election.

... the circumstances being, not representing the people she was elected to represent. I.e. breach of duty.

What a kiss of death. If Colorado voters didn’t have enough reason to dislike her, the official seal of being a Obamabot should clinch it.
