Bayh Abandons Ship while Obama, Reid and Pelosi Continue to Rearrange the Deck Chairs
In his farewell to the Titanic address Indiana Senator Evan Bayh said “I love helping our citizens make the most of their lives." Really, you sure had a strange way of helping your citizens. For the past year you along with your sidekicks Pelosi and Reid have plowed full speed ahead with your attempt to ram Government Takeover of Healthcare down your beloved citizen’s throats. All the while these same citizens were screaming against it and begging you to focus on unemployment!
You went on to describe congress as dysfunctional. What is dysfunctional my dear friend is your far left Democratic Party. You guys controlled both houses of congress as well as claimed allegiance to the empty suit that occupied the Oval Office and yet you couldn’t get any of your liberal Saul Alinsky agenda passed. And for you to now appear before the American People and deliver this Pontius Pilate Speech; I wash my hands of the entire process is at best disingenuous and worst, the height of hypocrisy.
You, along with your fellow charlatans folded like cheap suits every time Reid or Pelosi put any pressure on you to follow in lock step with their liberal agenda. The only reason you are standing here now delivering this Oh Woe Is Me Speech is because you saw the handwriting on the wall when Scott Brown was elected. The charade was over; the American People had awaken from their slumber and were mad as hell and not taking it anymore
I knew I could count on you to conjure up that most sacred of all Democratic Spirits; the one guaranteed to stop Republicans dead in their tracks every time you guys can’t get your way; the Beelzebub of all the demons; you evoked the lack of Bi-Partisanship as the main reason for leaving! Yes you actually claimed you were tired of the partisanship. Tired of the Partisanship, for crying out loud you had 60 votes. You are mad because no Republican would cross over and provide cover for you so called Moderate Democrats. Had Susan Collins or Olympia Snow capitulated, then maybe just maybe you and say Blanch Lincoln could have pretended to be moderate and voted against the Senate Health Care Bill. As it was you were exposed for the Hypocrites you truly are and like any spoiled child when he’s caught cheating you are now taking your marbles and going home!
You have made the greatest contribution to your state and country you could possibly make by resigning. Now hopefully the people of Indiana will follow suit with the citizens of the Peoples Republic of Massachusetts and elect a Republican to replace you. One by one; little by little we the people may take back our country one vote at a time; one senator or representative at a time! Maybe now with your resignation, the good citizens of Indiana have a legitimate shot at getting their jobs back!
