One of my mentors, the Anchoress, wisely points out that the elite press railed against President Bush whenever he warned of consequences if certain actions were not taken. Mysteriously, the same press is deathly mute when Obama warns of dire problems should we all fail to roll over for his grand new vision.
In related news, the Great Mortician, Senator Harry Reid claims to have 60 votes in the US Senate.
Reid said he believes at least two Republicans of “good will” would support the Democratic-crafted package.
“Do we have the votes? I believe we do,” said Reid.
Since Las Vegas is the home of the Big Bluff, I am inclined to think Harry is lying like a rug. However, I will not gamble on it myself, so I am spending the day contacting moderate Democrat Senators and Reid to express my displeasure at this spending extravaganza.
As a reminder, I urged people to contact as many Republicans as they could. So, now I am providing some pertinent Democrat contact information.

MUT NOTE: The Anchoress also suggests sending complaints about the deluded and biased press coverage of Obama and this plan to the elite media. I concur, and will be back on this blog to assist on this effort later this week. The Founding Fathers envisioned the Press as the penultimate watchdog against corruption, abuse, and power-mongering. They are failing miserably.
