Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison (R TX) Is A Traitor

Kay Bailey Hutchison the former cheerleader, political reporter, and undistinguished member of the Texas House of Representatives, beat abuse of office charges and engineered her election to replace Senator Lloyd Bentsen in the same year, 1993.

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.

Traitor she is!
against all enemies, foreign AND DOMESTIC,.... (Emphasis added)
1 down. 64 in the Senate to go.

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 . ..
Yes siree! This is good and going to get heavy. I love it. When you get them all lined up, it should be a book. I'm thinking - what would be a good title?

Look at little miss innocent there, just ripping off the people left and right. I'm remember that name. Kay Bailey, rotten politician.
All, just to be up front about it, I'm going to do the 5 of 8 Senators (in the four states in which I've lived) who voted for the detainee bill. I'm enlisting other bloggers to hit their own Senators. I figure 64 posts with the title "Senator XXX Is A Traitor" will have a pretty big impact...I hope.

Peacechick, Kay Bailey Hutchison is a particularly bad example senatorial uselessness, and she replaced Lloyd Bentsen! Errrggggggg!
This is going to get interesting. I didn't realize you were including the Republicans. The worst traitors are the Dems.

link to my post. Just emailed it to you.
Her Democratic opponent is Barbara Ann Radnofsky, a great lady, a terrific dancer, and most importantly, someone who's opposed to torture. Go to her website today and give her some love.

Yes, she's a traitor. She's also two-faced and inconsistent. She was one of the ringleaders of Clinton's impeachment. She was just appalled and shocked that a president would perjure himself by lying about an affair. Then, she referred to one of the recent Bush White House scandals (I forget which one; there are too many to keep track of) by saying "it's only perjury. It's only a technicality."

She's gotta go.
The Better Know a Traitor series.
LC, I've read a bit about Ms. Radnofsky. Does she have the resources to defeat Hutchison?

Tom, the perjury comments were in relation to Fitzgerald's pursuit of Scooter Libby.

SA, that's what I'm working toward.
But is she a pederast?
here via granny..
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..
Oh kvatch - great idea. I can do Kansas...unless you think it's just too easy ;-).

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!!
Cartledge, not to my knowledge and to boot she's not a Representative, but hey who knows...

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.
"LC, I've read a bit about Ms. Radnofsky. Does she have the resources to defeat Hutchison?"

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.
You people do realize that these terrorist folks are trying to KILL you?

What a bunch of freaking lemmings.
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.
"You people do realize that these terrorist folks are trying to KILL you?"

So were the Nazis, yet we managed to make it through that war without suspending the writ of habeas corpus or legalizing torture.
Kay is a JOKE! This mean bitch, the former prom queen and sorority girl from UT, is a disgrace to the United States Senate.

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.
