Nelson Complicates Obama's Plans To Demonize GOP As Obstructionists

Nelson Complicates Obama's Plans To Demonize GOP As Obstructionists

Commented Feb 9, 2010 at 16:10:13 in Politics

“I think Rahm was talking about people like ChipD and lovbug... If Dems in Nebraska get rid of Nelson, we can be absolutely sure he'll be replaced by a Republican. And not a moderate Republican that would consider voting "yes" on the stimulus, healthcare reform, Obama's budget, financial reform, or anything else that progressives want to accomplish (with Nelson's votes)- but a Republican that is on the far fight. Do you really want to make that trade because Nelson won't support a nominee to a labor relations board?”

“He's a Democratic Senator from Nebraska- a state where having an "R" behind your name is basically a prerequisite for public office. He stuck his neck out for the Democratic party on health care reform. Unless you'd rather have a Republican in his place you have to give him some freedom to break party ranks. Opposing a labor nominee is probably a good time to do that.”

“You are right. Democrats talk about Republicans not tolerating their moderates. Why is Nelson being attacked so much?”

“Unless he votes with his party on procedural matters, he's worse than useless. Let him vote his conscience when Becker comes up for a vote, but to vote against cloture? He's the same as Lieberman; he doesn't belong in the Democratic caucus.”

“Why this nominee? Is he afraid of having his "RIGHT TO WORK LAW" overturned? Right to work laws keep people in a state of poverty since companies can pay minimum wage regardless of the work involved and the inflation rate of their state.”

“When is he not breaking party ranks?”

The Answer is Clean Energy Jobs. (No, really)

“100,000 job by 2015 in the Midwest alone! $500 billion in net savings through energy efficiency by 2020. A healthier environment. Less fossil fuel dependence. This is a win, win, win, win. Why haven't we jumped on this opportunity already?”
