Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison (R TX) Is A Traitor
Hutchison is not known for her daring legislative initiatives, but her time in the Senate has not been without achievements. She lied about limiting herself to two full terms. She greatly enriched Big Oil by keeping the Dept. of the Interior from collecting full royalty payments on federal land leases...while at the same time accepting $1.2M in industry contributions. She has voiced her tolerance for perjury...when it can be used a bludgeon against a federal prosecutor. And she voted twice to keep the minimum wage at $7.25 an hour, only relenting when Republicans held an increase hostage to an estate tax giveaway of millions to the wealthiest 1/2 of 1 percent of Americans.
And now...she's a traitor. On Thursday, she voted with 65 Senators to place the President above the Constitution on the subject of detainee trials, habeas corpus, and treaty authority. She violated her oath of office:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God....making herself an enemy of our founding document, and in doing so has betrayed her country. That is the definition of a traitor.
Damn do I wish American citizens had a Clue about our Rights and the duties of our elected representatives! But so many of these Traitors in office - both the House and Senate - KNOW their voters are Ignorant so have traded their human integrity and the integrity of our Constitution for support.
Yet again . ..
Look at little miss innocent there, just ripping off the people left and right. I'm remember that name. Kay Bailey, rotten politician.
Peacechick, Kay Bailey Hutchison is a particularly bad example senatorial uselessness, and she replaced Lloyd Bentsen! Errrggggggg!
link to my post. Just emailed it to you.
She's gotta go.
Tom, the perjury comments were in relation to Fitzgerald's pursuit of Scooter Libby.
SA, that's what I'm working toward.
as you can see by my name im slightly democrat...
im also from texas...and no one rankles my ass more that that two faced lying bitch(with pardons to all female dogs)
but what disgusts me more are the traitorist bastid dems who voted for it...i will personally see that the goddess bips the shit out of them..
cant wait for the next installment..
Hutchison is just another great embarassment (or worthless piece of Sh*t) to come out of texas. TX needs to go back to being blue, and pronto!!
Yellowdog Granny...welcome! I'm of the opinion that the Dems and Rethugs here are exactly the same. Even Republicans should honor their oath to the Constitution.
Pam...please do! I can use all the help I can get. I'd like to get these posts all over the Blogsphere.
She's raised over a million dollars, which is fairly astonishing for a Democrat in Texas, she's been campaigning like crazy all over the state and KBH is below 50% approval in the polls. Obviously, it would be a tough fight, but if we can take down KBH is a state as red as Texas then we can win control of the Senate.
What a bunch of freaking lemmings.
You would be referring to the Senators that rubber-stamped Bush's power grab? No?! Then I suppose that you're ok with a Democrat president having the power to make you disappear--no trial, no legal recourse.
The country is the Constitution. Destroy the Constitution and you've destroyed the United States. In George W. Bush, Osama bin Laden has gotten everything he could possibly hope for.
So were the Nazis, yet we managed to make it through that war without suspending the writ of habeas corpus or legalizing torture.
She has her nose so far up Bush's ass that it isn't even funny.
She got re-elected, and how sad. How sad for Texas...and the Senate.
