Quick Recap:Senator Jim Bunning tarred and feathered, because he dared to hold Obama at his word.
The only thing Senator Bunning did was "hold Obama to his word". For him believing Obama, Bunning was tarred and feathered as being the grinch who was trying to deny people unemployment benefits. The Republican leadership was pathetic in not standing behind and supporting Seanator Bunning. How can these jokers talk about fiscal restraint when the cameras are on them, yet they run for the hills when they have to back up those words in a real life situation? The simple fact is that there was no funding source to pay for the transportation bill and the unemployment benefits. I've noticed that Obama also stayed clear in not saying anything on the matter. Lie, distort and smear has become the liberal's three prong attack stratetgy in congress and outside of Washington. I truly believe their attacks on Senator Bunning will not help them come November. In a congress that is seen as being way out of control and out of touch with the American mainstream, Senator Jim Bunning was seen by many as a person who stood up on the principal of fiscal responsibility, and his actions showed that Obama, Pelosi, Reid and their media allies could care less about integrity.
