    Pelosi, Rahm do not scare Rep. DeFazio

    Pelosi, Rahm do not scare Rep. DeFazio - TheHill.com

    Don’t think we’re not keeping score, brother,” Obama told DeFazio during a closed-door meeting of the House Democratic Caucus, according to members afterward.
    An obvious product of his environment. Chicago machine politics and a racially intolerant/race baiting church.

    First, the threats from The Obama are telling.

    Second... I thought it was the GOP that was holding up the health care bill...?

    Yeah, it tells you that he's honest. Has there ever been a politician (or a human being) that doesn't keep score?

    Yes. There are much more of them that oppose it.

    As Presidents:
    Do you think Reagan kept score?
    Washington?
    Adams?
    Bush 41?
    Bush 43?
    Carter?

    Don't think so.

    We know Obama is that type of person.
    We know The Clintons are that type of person.
    We know Nixon was that kind of person.

    It also reveals his rhetoric of Hope, Change and Unity was manure... sugar coated for public consumption.

    A lot of people ate it up.

    Now they realize it doesn't taste so good, and no amount of Kool-Aid is going to help smother that taste.

    Of course if you tell the whole story it's just not juicy and gossipy enough for the howlers.

    I know it won't make any difference, but here it is.

    "I know you think we need more for that because you voted against" the stimulus bill in February, Obama told DeFazio during a question-and-answer session with about 150 House Democrats at the Capitol.

    "Don't think we're not keeping score, brother," Obama added, as other lawmakers howled with laughter.

    DeFazio, a 12-term lawmaker from Springfield, was the only member of Congress to oppose the final stimulus bill after supporting the initial version. The chairman of a House subcommittee on highways and transit, DeFazio complained that the revised bill did not do enough for transportation and infrastructure.

    Later in the meeting, Obama told DeFazio he was "messing" with him and that he needs the veteran Democrat's vote on his budget proposal.

    DeFazio said Tuesday that he took the president's verbal jabs in good humor - and instantly became a kind of Capitol celebrity. A fellow lawmaker approached him at the House gym and said he should be honored that the president called him "brother."

    DeFazio said he agrees.

    DeFazio stimulus vote gets Obama?s attention
    *anyone wanna bet that the next tangent will be about how DeFazio should be honored that President Obama called him 'brother'...LOL

    Of course the president is going to react to anyone calling him out on his blatant hypocrisy...
    Thats Chicago backstabbing political basics.

    The administration prefers revisionist history to actualities.


    Lying sacks one and all.
    Thank you

    Lying to the public and revising history to suit an agenda is something that is sadly a common feature in government. We seen it in almost every administration in the past century.

    DeFazio sounds like a guy I could get along with, despite me not liking quite a few of the things he wants.
