Representative John Conyers: a pattern of promoting victimhood for political advantage?
Smooth talk, half-truths or omitted details make the stimulus package dangerous ...

Rumors continue to circulate that Arlen Specter might be considered by the Obama Administration for a Supreme Court nominee for his role in serving as a Judas Goat betraying his party and giving the Obama socialists their big win: a stimulus bill which will turn the Country left.

In terms of bumper sticker logic …
