News Busters ^ | Swptember 3, 2013 | Noel Sheppard

Democratic Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton said Tuesday that at the current time, the only reason she would vote in favor of an attack on Syria was out of loyalty to Barack Obama.

Appearing on radio's Bill Press Show, the non-voting delegate from the District of Columbia also said if the President actually gets the votes he needs, "it’ll be because of loyalty of Democrats. They just don’t want to see him shamed and humiliated on the national stage"

Ms. Holmes should speak for her country, America, not for the color of her skin. Too many in our government who are self-serving like Ms. Norton....this is the ultimate tragedy for a nation...Obama has already disgraced himself to the nation and to the world as one of the weakest leaders in history as well as the most self-serving POTUS.

Wow. Even Eleanor Holmes Norton is to the RIGHT of John "'I'm Going to Support the President's Call for Action' in Syria" Boehner.

Is anyone in the media seeing the hypocrisy of liberals clamoring for war?

The blind, loyal stupidity of the Democrat Party on full display. Dems are all about groupthink and walking in lockstep with each other, even if it means not thinking for yourself or for the people who voted for you. This is why the Left fears “American individuality”, they don’t like people thinking foe themselves.

The Democrats shame and humiliate themselves by supporting their slavemaster instead of their country. The National Uncle Tom Party has an unspoken loyalty oath to Der Schvartze Fuhrer.

All HAIL!

Norton is not a congresswoman. She is DC’s “representative delegate” in the Congress. Her vote is not binding in the least.

Valerie just checked my offshore holdings and issued the "Obama
Doctrine:" the bombing mission must protect my image. Any
resulting damage---mitigated by war profiteering---is an
acceptable trade-off.

================================================

BACKGROUND MUSIC---"That Old Black Magic Has Me In Its Spell"

" This'll get done fast---I gotta get back to golf."

"A few measly bombs will pump-up all of our resumes,
especially Benghazi screw-ups Susan Rice, candidate Hillary...
and that pontificating jerk, Kerry. "

"And at $50 billion per day for the incursion, all who support me,
Republican and Democrat, will get a cut. Should be in the
neighborhood of a few $hundred million each. "

"War-profiteering is big bucks. Just ask the 'bombs-away neocons."
That damn *itch Michelle's nagging me for new diamonds and a
pricey Vineyard house."

I can’t believe we lose to these people

She ‘s loyal to Obama.

Does she have a clue in her small mind what Obama is loyal to?

I'll get jumped on for this, but, isn't this what liberal black Americans do. They will destroy the schools, fill the prisons, bankrupt the country with entitlement programs... rather than be embarrassed by the truth.

Loyalty to Obama trumps the good of the nation to these people. Be it party loyalty or black solidarity, it is dangerous and wrong.

I received an email from MoveOn.Org on Saturday, after Obama’s announcement that he was requesting Congressional approval. The email included a video about Syria and the petition was a plea to Obama to not return violence with violence. I didn’t watch it immediately.

Yesterday, I began to wonder if MoveOn was going to go against Obama and decided to click on the video . What happened was that the video was short circuited. I could only watch the introduction and half of the first speaker. Next to the video was a statement that the petition now states that MoveOn opposes military action unless Obama wins the support of Congress. The flip flop was a dead give away to their position.

But what about for the children? What about for the oppressed and disenfranchised women and minorities? Aren’t you supposed to care about them first and foremost above all else, Ms. Holmes? Guess not, even though your party supposedly commands you to do so without question.

The only reason I would support the Holocaust is because of loyalty to Hitler.

Actually she support Obama because she and he are black.

She also support freeing Mumia.

Nothing like the race card to get a free pass from judging a person based on color instead of character...the real racists are the ones who won’t look at the character (that is substitute policy/beliefs for character), but only the color and gave free pass based on that.
