These are bully tactics what is next are people going to start having accidents or take long vacations?


"Don't think we're not keeping score, brother." That's what President Barack Obama said to Rep. Peter DeFazio in a closed-door meeting of the House Democratic Caucus last week, according to the Associated Press.

A few weeks ago, Mr. DeFazio voted against the administration's stimulus bill. The comment from Mr. Obama was a presidential rebuke and part of a new, hard-nosed push by the White House to pressure Congress to adopt the president's budget.He has mobilized outside groups and enlisted forces still in place from the Obama campaign.

Its targets were initially Republicans, as team Obama ran ads depicting the GOP as the "party of no."
But now the fire is being trained on Democrats worried about runaway spending.


Americans United is going after Democrats who are skeptical of Mr. Obama's plans to double the national debt in five years and nearly triple it in 10.

The White House is taking aim at lawmakers in 12 states, including Democratic Sens. Kent Conrad, Ben Nelson, Mary Landrieu, Blanche Lincoln and Mark Pryor.

MoveOn.Org is running ads aimed at 10 moderate Senate and House Democrats.

And robocalls are urging voters in key districts to pressure their congressman to get in line.

Looks like most of the stuff stated you can look up and either confirm or prove false. No opinion about it.
