I would bet that most of you who Rock with me On the Right Side probably are not on the President’s mailing list. I am.
Call it espionage, if you must. Actually, I just find the way the Obama regime manipulates its subjects so entertaining.
Today the administration is blasting Max Baucus for finally – finally – representing his Montana constituents. And as they almost always do, they lied to their gullible subscribers without shame. Here’s the e-mail they sent me:
Senator Max Baucus is hoping you weren’t paying attention.
Last week, he was one of 45 senators who decided to stand with the gun lobby, blocking a bill to expand background checks — a measure that 79% of Montanans support.
OFA supporters across the country are holding their senators accountable — today, Senator Baucus needs to hear directly from the people who sent him to Washington. One simple, very public way of doing that is to get on Twitter.
Tweet @MaxBaucus now:
We have your senator’s Twitter handle and a sample tweet ready to go, but feel free to make it your own. As long as Senator Baucus hears from you today, that’s what counts. And believe me, the senator and his staff are watching their Twitter accounts pretty closely.
The reality is, keeping guns out of the hands of criminals and the mentally unstable should be a no-brainer. It’s overwhelmingly popular. Senator Baucus could have easily stood up to the gun lobby and said, “I have to do what my constituents sent me here to do.”
Instead, he caved and we took a step backward in the fight to prevent gun violence.
Whenever this happens — whenever Congress chooses to cater to special interests at the expense of the common good — OFA is going to hold them accountable in a very public way.
It’s why we’re here.
After years of selling out to the big political contributors who got him re-elected six times, Baucus finally grew a spine. He admitted that the Obamacare program he co-sponsored is “a train wreck”. He voted against the Democrats embarrassingly bloated budget, saying it raised spending too much. He stood up to the over-reaching gun control extremists – and by the way, if you believe 79% of Montanans support gun control, you have never whiffed one breath of Big Sky air.
The left is on him like magpies on a road-killed whitetail. Washington Post: “Baucus Retires, A Grateful Nation Cheers”. The Daily Beast: “Good Riddance, Max Baucus”. And, of course, the divider-in-chief, through his puppets, grabs his smelly bite of scavenged meat, booting his once-faithful comrade to the curb with snarling contempt. Stay classy, Mr. President.
Announcing his retirement, Baucus said in an AP interview, “I don’t want to die here with my boots on. There is life beyond Congress.” I think it’s kind of cool that he finally bought a pair of boots. He hadn’t seen Montana for so long, I doubt he knows which one goes on which foot.
One of the last letters I wrote Senator Baucus was a promise. I told him that if he continued to push for ObamaCare I would do everything in my power to see that he would never be elected again. We both lost. ObamaCare became law, and Max will never be elected again.
I guess Montana lost twice, though. Here comes Brian Schweitzer.
Tom Balek – Rockin’ On the Right Side
No one knows what it’s like to be the bad man
To be the sad man behind blue eyes.
No one knows what it’s like to be hated
To be fated to telling only lies
But my dreams they aren’t as empty
As my conscience seems to be
I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance that’s never free
