With the Coleman race still being decided, the Obama team came up with a plan to snatch another Senate seat from Republicans by offering “in the spirit of bipartisanship” the Secretary of Commerce position to Senator Judd Gregg of New Hampshire.
“But Fred,” you say, “didn’t the Democrat Governor of New Hampshire say he would appoint another Republican to fill that spot?” Yes, my dear readers, he did. Nancy Pelosi also promised bipartisanship with integrity before she changed the house rules to prevent the house minority representatives from taking part in the writing of the bills and eliminated the minority party’s ability to attach amendments to the bills.
Interestingly enough, the Republicans put these safeguards in place at the Democrats request when the Republicans had the majority.
President Obama lost in his plan to make a guaranteed veto-proof Senate as Senator Gregg turned down the appointment offer.
The WSJ reported Judd announcing: “The bottom line is this was simply a bridge too far for me. The president asked me to do it. I said yes. That was my mistake, not his. I should have focused sooner…on the implications of being in the cabinet.”
He also disagreed with changing the way the Census is being taken to allow for Non-Citizens to be more readily counted.
In other words, after the great feeling of being offered a cabinet post was soon overpowered by the stark reality that Liberals are Liberals and their Marxist policies were too much for him to stomach.
Does anyone really believe that the number of House Representatives should be determined by the number of non-Citizens?
