    Congressmen not willing to sell their vote for hospitals and Medicare exemptions and judgeships for their brothers are not "douchebags." They're representing the the wills of their constituencies. >>

    They should heed the people's wants, but sometimes they lose control. As Gutman said to Sam Spade: "In the heat of a battle, a man may forget where his best interests lie."

    An obvious attempt to discredit Obama based on a groundless assumption. A typical Rep trick.

    <<The White House just sent out a press release announcing that today President Obama nominated Matheson's brother Scott M. Matheson, Jr. to the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit.

    ?Scott Matheson is a distinguished candidate for the Tenth Circuit court,? President Obama said. ?Both his legal and academic credentials are impressive and his commitment to judicial integrity is unwavering. I am honored to nominate this lifelong Utahn to the federal bench.? >>

    If it were Bush, I might believe the connection, but not Obama. He's too straight arrow for his own good. Chances are he doesn't even know what quid pro quo means.

    If that were true, he would never have become a politician.

    The people are fully aware that their best interests aren't being served by the liar sent to the White House in 2008.

    Their interests lie dead on the House and Senate floors while the Democrats can't figure out how, with vast majorities in both Houses, to pass this nightmare the Messiah is demanding.
