Here at Conservative Daily News, we read what you probably don’t have the stomach to digest. All the liberal tripe out there is what we wade through each day, and that includes getting that nonsense in our inbox. Today’s little gem comes from the folks over at Organizing for America – the perpetual Obama-campaign machine – and they are more than a little upset over the budget vote today. Of course, that’s not surprising since their boss was bellyaching over it already on Twitter.

What has them so angry is that the GOP members of the House added a measure to defund Obamacare in their bill to fund the Government for next few months. As reported in The Washington Post, here’s the tally:

Final tally: 230 to 189
How many Republicans voted for the bill?: 228
How many Democrats voted against the bill?: 188
How many Republicans voted against the bill?: 1
How many Democrats voted for the bill?: 2
How many lawmakers didn’t vote?: 14
How many seats are vacant?: 2

As for OFA’s response? Well, they’re operating under the assumption that John Boehner can’t control his House. Yes, you read that right. It couldn’t possibly have anything to do with constituents of the Representatives telling them that they don’t want ObamaCare. No, it must be that Boehner can’t keep his ducks in a row. Well, for those of you that can’t believe the audacity of that assertion, here’s the letter itself:

  1. Oh, it has NOT escaped us that the Democrats in general and Obie specifically don’t get it. I think the resounding NO to war with Syria by 91% of the people might have given him an inkling that the people might have a voice in all of this (Oh say it isn’t so, joe) but because he sees Government as the caretaker of the stupid masses he CANNOT connect the Dots! When the Gun Grab bill went down he blamed the Republican and Democrat traitors in the Senate – NOT We the People! It was US who put that Bill DOWN, Obie! US! Saying NO to OUR legislators. US who out voiced the tear jerking, Grief Whores, the Sandy Hookers and all the other Emotia-Whores! He thinks Congress is the big ball n chain holding him back! He thinks he is the President to Congress, Not the People. Shows, doesn’t it?

    But then why WOULD he take We the People seriously since “we” are so stupid as to elect a Usurper to the White House in the first place?

  2. OFA has more lives than a room full of cats & a car load of Energizer batteries & more legs than a centipede. We will escape only when we work our way close enough to chop off the head,…and that appears to be one leg at a time….(no one said it would be easy…& it’s not!)…….Keep in mind, these people have already succumbed to slavery & no longer have a need to think for themselves…
    Then there are those that are along for the ride & never were capable of service. Obama is apparently not the only smooth forked tongue..they got elected also and want to be again ..KEEP YOUR AXES SHARP & KEEP CHOPPIN’…..WE CAN DO THIS…..
