I'm trying to figure out why the so-called "liberal" media keeps asking Senator McCain what he thinks about things. I don't remember Senator Kerry getting this much post-election loser exposure in 2005.
I'm also trying to figure out why my "liberal" Senator, Kay Hagan, is joining a so-called "moderate" (code word for conservative) group of Dems that plan to oppose Obama on spending plans. She apparently didn't notice that at the same time she beat Dole, Obama turned a historically red state blue. Even Clinton didn't do that. Does she really want to be on the opposing side of the most popular president in recent history? It's not like Obama is asking to allocate a trillion dollars into the investigation of missing left socks. He's trying to jump start a very neglected economy and provide health care for all citizens. How on earth is 0pposing (or reducing) any of that a good thing for Americans, let alone your own constituents who are very deeply affected? Balancing the budget right now will give us the exact same outcome as when Hoover did it in the early 1930's. FAIL.
Right now, Hagan is not making her Democratic constituents happy in her state. In addition, it's not as if any Republicans will ever vote for her anyway. Why is she doing this? If she keeps this up, I'm voting in the primary against her in 2014. She is better than Dole (Dole was notorious for doing little for NC and when she did do something, it only helped her uber-wealthy friends), but she is very far from being a Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT).
