Earmarks Are ‘What We’re Supposed to Do’

Didn't Obama promise numerous times that he would end earmarks? Heck when he gave us the failed stimulus bill he promised that that would be the last time a bill would have those earmarks. Obama better grow some balls and tell Congress that he wont sign any bills with earmarks in them like he had promise so many times in the past.  Obama needs to start acting like a leader and keep him promises.

Washington Times reports:
Preparing for a final showdown on the massive $1.1 trillion spending bill, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid defended the thousands of earmarks in the measure as the basic function of Congress.
“That’s our job. That‘s what we’re supposed to do,” Mr. Reid, Nevada Democrat, said as he chastised fellow senators who, while having requested pork-barrel spending earlier this year, are now decrying their inclusion in the spending bill.
Mr. Reid challenged those senators to voluntarily agree to strip their own earmarks out of the bill, and said so far, nobody has taken him up on that.


  1. You want Obama to 'act' like a leader, well send him to Hollywood.

    What this country needs is a leader in the White House and this POS would not make a pimple on a real leaders ass.

    Leaders are born with an instinct and the capability to do so, they need not 'act' the part.

  2. "this POS would not make a pimple on a real leaders ass" LMAO!

    Did you see the link I posted on my blog about the 6000 earmarks that would have been attached to the Omnibus?

    90% of this is absolute waste. Reid has hundreds of them.

  3. If the democrats stop earmarks how will they buy votes?

  4. Good point Anon. Maybe the Republican Party needs to make earmarks illegal. It will cut the source of the Democrats power(paybacks).


Please keep it clean and nice. Thank you for taking the time to post you thought. It means a lot to me that you do this.
