Still More Bribery in the Obama White House
At first it was revealed that The White House has a Bribery Problem and then there was More White House Bribery Revealed. Now, after after he promised to run the most above board, honest and ethical government in history of our country, there is Still More Bribery in the Obama White House.
The good news; Barak Obama has finally found a reason to create a few jobs for the American people. The bad News; Our President only seems to be able to create a job when he needs to influence other government officials. This time the White House is using a cushy judicial appointment to bribe sitting US Congressman with the express intention of swaying his vote in favor of Obama’s $2 Trillion Healthcare Reform Bill.
The Weekly Standard is reporting that President Obama has nominated Scott M. Matheson Jr. to the US Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit. Scott is the brother of Rep. Jim Matheson (D, UT). Jim Matheson was one of the 39 Democrat votes against the Obama Healthcare Reform Bill that was passed in the House this fall. President Obama has targeted Matheson and nine other Democrats for the wine, dine, and bribe treatment, hoping to place enough pressure on them so that they have no other choice but to vote “yea” in the upcoming Healthcare Reform vote.
We knew when President Obama was a Community Organizer from the mean streets of Chicago before he came to Washington and we knew that he would do anything that he had to do in order to get his healthcare bill passed, what we did not know was how sleazy, corrupt and thug-like the President’s politics were.
Once again, I would like to remind the reader and the White house:
