nevermind that republicans are getting more earmark money per senator than the dems.

Would that have anything to do with there being more Dems than Reps ?:mad2:

Uh, no.

Wouldn't you think the party that is kicking and screaming over earmarks would have much less of a piece of the pie adjusted for senate membership?

Turns out they are more on the take than the dems.

Everyone sucks.

If the Pubs were to get more of the earmarks, then wouldn't that give the Dems even more justification to vote against it especially taking into consideration the promisies made by their president?

If the Pubs were to get more of the earmarks, then why did over 2/3 of them vote against it but only 2 Dems?

Because they know the dems will pass it. This way they can have their cake and eat it too. 1. Get money from taxpayers to help their states 2. Look conservative for voting against the money they are taking.

And people are buying all this BS?

sad

Dude, why oh why oh why did Obama put the fate of his presidency in the hands of Pelosi and Reid? Stupid, stupid, stupid.

Bottom line...McCain promised to get rid of earmarks (he's been a huge proponent of doing so for years), and Obama knew he had to do the same to get elected. Now we're seeing he was less than truthful about it. What did Colbert call it? Truthiness?

I don't think Obama has a choice on who the senior members of Congress are.

I didn't expect immediate earmark gratification - we will see if there is a marked decrease in this stuff over his 4 year term. Even this year with no bickering, earmarks are down 5 percent I understand.

The stock market's down a lot more than that. Those are the people who know what's up. Not the little dipshit economics professor wearing a bowtie.

So you fully expect Obama to reverse the course this country is on in a mere 6 weeks? Oh, that's right, the Dow was at 14,000 on January 20 this year. I must have forgotten. He caused it all. Meat, please accept my sincere non-apology.
