Examiner ^

Posted on 08/20/2012 3:51:35 PM PDT by Perdogg

Retiring Sen. Jim Webb, D-Va., said Monday charged that President Obama's handling of the sweeping healthcare overhaul unnecessarily caused a great deal of fear in the country.

The Virginia Democrat, in a wide-ranging interview on MSNBC's "Daily Rundown," told host Chuck Todd that it was his "great regret" that the Obama administration scared Americans with a large bill that lacked direction.

Webb does not regret it as much as I do. I am sure that rich p.o.s will be able to find a doctor and pay cash.

I don’t think he realizes he’s admitting to one if two things: either he’s a lying POS, or a stupid POS.

He is as responsible for it being thrust upon us as much as the Obama admin. Amazing how these guys collect the pay check, and lifelong benefits vote for .......and then express regrets that bad things are happening to us (directly from their actions) as if they weren’t even around.

I remain unconvinced the DNC isn’t cutting it’s losses.

Supporting this guy signs you on to a whole new level of KNOWN baggage.

They could lie about him in 2008. Now everyone knows this road-apple for exactly what he is.

Hope he retires somewhere else.

Harry Reid paid a whole carton of cigarettes for Webb, and made sure he got his money’s worth.

Webb, here’s an idea, buy a house in Maryland.

SEN. Webb, just go away.

You are a worthless POS and you always have been.

You were not a good Marine, you were a worse Sec. of the Navy, and you were a failure as a Senator.

God help Virginia.

Yo Webb, you substandard puke, hope you die with tears in your eyes for the country you stabbed in the back and sold out to the commie pig.

You demoKaRatz have A LOT to answer for. And guess what Webb, don’t come round here looking for forgiveness or sympathy.

You can go find sympathy in your Funk and Wagnalls, somewhere between Sh!! and Syphilis.

Oh Boy, did this drudge up a memory.

My bro rescued little abandoned dogs in a big way. One day, the UPS truck whips up into the yard at full speed, out jumps one of Holder’s People. He’s in a hurry because he probably spent lunch with a doobee.

So, he whips the truck in reverse and runs over one of my bud’s buds. Blood everywhere.

No sorrys. No Oh Sh!!. It was “Yo, MF, your piece of sh!! dog got sh!! all over my van man!”

My bro got arrested for some serious assault. Holder’s People went to the zoo for some serious repair. UPS at first tried to press charges and get restitution, then tried to “settle”, then gave up and fired Holder’s People and paid for everything.

This is what we are up against.

“I said that directly to the president about two weeks ago: How in the name of the Lord can the Democratic Party, the party of Andrew Jackson, only be getting 28 percent of the white male working class vote?” Webb said.


It shocks me that 28% of white men vote for Dems. That’s disgusting. Dems have made perfectly clear that they HATE white men. They have whipped up black racist mobs to attack, beat and murder white men. They have designed diversity studies that debase, scapegoat and inspire pure hatred and revenge for demon white men. Insane.

You were not a good Marine, you were a worse Sec. of the Navy, and you were a failure as a Senator.

Jim Webb might be a terrible senator and a horse's ass to boot, but he was one of the finest small-unit combat leaders of the Vietnam War. In his four-year post-Annapolis career, Webb was awarded the Navy Cross, the Silver Star, two Bronze Stars (with Combat "V") and two Purple Hearts - and that from the medal-stingy Marine Corps. I have no disagreement with the rest of your rant, but I will not let that false charge go unchallenged.

Sure we was a fine Marine combat leader, but Jim Webb forgot the most important attributes needed to serve the people of Virginia and America, namely honor, courage, discipline, and honesty. He is completely devoid of these qualities today.
