Dave Obey

Dave makes some errors, mainly he's conflicted about being a Roman Catholic & a free citizen. He does, however, say & do many good things. Years & years ago, in fact, during Dave's first run for a full term, my father was running for county clerk. I was bartending at the local Labor Temple & there was a meeting of all the Democratic candidates. At the time, I was under the influence of the county Democratic chairman, who, it turns out, was an O'Konski (a local ReThug) plant. Dave Obey, while in line with the local Democratic candidates looked at this person & said something to the effect of "Why don't you go join the party you really belong to?" It was, as I found out, true. A good beginning in politics. My dad lost his election, but Dave Obey won & hasn't lost since. Here he says a lot about the present ReThug behavior in Congress.
Angry Democrats lashed Hastert for trying to change the outcome of votes in the conference committee he did not like. "What is this, the Soviet Parliament?" asked ranking House Appropriations Committee member David Obey, D-Wisc., accusing the leadership of making "decisions behind closed doors, regardless of the rules."
That's right on the money, "...regardless of the rules." Just like the Bu$hCo & Cheney, The ReThugs don't want to govern, they want to rule. Their way, or the highway.
