Pick me! Pick me! I was married to Bill! I have experience!

Because people don’t think…

This is why I loathe mainstream media. No one –  No. One. – expected Obama to win in PA, but the news is making it seem like it was a blowout. Seriously – he was down by 20+ points a month ago. We all knew that he wasn’t going to overcome that gap. I was hoping for 3%, but the official spread the day after  was Clinton 9.2% in Hill’s favor.  Okay, in my Math class, that rounds down to 9%, but in media they round up to 10% so that they can get their double-digit. Oh well, it will be a moot point when all is said and done.

I wander over to MSNBC and find this little quote:

Kathleen Gavin, 44, a psychotherapist in Allentown, said Clinton, the former first lady, earned her vote “10 years ago.”

“I don’t think [Obama] has the experience, the wisdom or the presence that Hillary has,” Gavin said. clinton wins in pa

And that’s what pisses me off, I don’t think. Well for God’s sake, use the brain that you were given and THINK!!

Here are some FACTS
Obama v. Hillary’s experience

“Senator Clinton, who has served only one full term, which is 6 years and another year campaigning, has authored and passed 20 twenty pieces of legislation in her term of six years into law.

(1) Establish the Kate Mullany National Historic Site.

(2) Support the goals and ideals of Better Hearing and Speech Month.

(3) Recognize the Ellis Island Medal of Honor.

(4) Name courthouse after Thurgood Marshall.

OBAMA’S Experience

During Senator Obama’s first 8 eight months of elected service he sponsored over 820 bills.

He introduced 233 bills regarding healthcare reform

125 bills on poverty and public assistance

112 bills on crime fighting

97 economic bills

60 human rights and anti-discrimination bills

21 ethics reform bills

15 gun control

6 veterans affairs and many others.

In his first year in the U.S. Senate, he authored 152 bills and co-sponsored another 427. These included:

(1)the Coburn-Obama Government Transparency Act of 2006 that became LAW,

(2)The Lugar-Obama Nuclear Non-proliferation and Conventional Weapons Threat Reduction Act that became LAW

(3)The Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act that passed the Senate

(4)The 2007 Government Ethics Bill that became LAW

(5)The Protection Against Excessive Executive Compensation Bill that is in committee just to name a few.

In all since he entered the U.S. Senate, Senator Obama has written 890 bills and co-sponsored another 1096. An impressive record, for someone who supposedly has no legislative record. Read the facts and not emotion.”
