Every Anti Obama-Care Democrat Has Won

From a tear-stained Politico:

Dem health bill foes escape payback

After 34 House Democrats voted against the health care bill in March, liberal groups and their allies in the labor movement vowed to exact revenge.

The threats ranged from crippling primary election challenges to a withdrawal of support for some of the offending lawmakers. In a few cases, activists even went so far as to say they would run third-party candidates against the Democrats in November.

But five months later, the group of 34 has emerged from primary season not much worse for the wear. Every one of the 30 lawmakers who voted against the health care bill and is seeking another term won re-nomination.

The last of the group to be tested, Massachusetts Rep. Stephen Lynch, won his primary Tuesday, dispatching former Service Employees International Union Regional Political Director Mac D’Alessandro.

“The last man standing — the last primary challenger to a Democrat who voted against the health care bill,” is how D’Alessandro labeled himself in a recent post on the liberal Daily Kos website

What a perfect Democrat standard-bearer. A SEIU thug who is also a Daily Kos writer.

While they may have dodged a bullet during primary season, it’s not entirely clear what effect the no votes will have in November. Some of Democrats still must confront residual resentment from party activists whose support will be critical to their political survival on Election Day

So don’t worry. If any of these 30 Democrats fail to win their general elections, our media will still trumpet their losses as definitive proof that they should have voted for Obama-care.

    Every Anti Obama-Care Democrat Has Won …. bovine scatology. There is no such animal as a Anti Obama-Care Democrat. There are those smart enough to lie about being “anti” in order to try and get re-elected …. and those who are rookies and thought staying on message and hanging tough with the DNC and the boy in the White House would pay off. And those rubes got whacked.

    There isn’t any such thing as an Anti Obama-Care Democrat

    There are only Liars and Thieves.

    The thieving liars won their primaries These will suddenly see the light following November’s wins for the Dems and return to the Obama-coven and again take up their screeching for The Cause.

    I like your thinking, Jack. Trust no one. These 30 may be the most dangerous of all if they win for one very obvious reason. THEY’RE STILL AROUND!

    This is hilarious. Reading the entire article you see the amount of money spent by these “winners” vs. the amount spent by their opponents… it is to laugh. Some of the magic 30 coasted without any opposition at all!

    Oklahoma Rep. Dan Boren plowed more than $920,000 into his primary campaign – much of it on TV ads highlighting his pro-gun record – to drown out state Sen. Jim Wilson, who dispensed a meager $18,000. That’s $51.11 for every $1 spent by his opponent. Wow… shocker.

    If they hadn’t won THAT would be real news. The fact that they won illustrates one thing. People that are running (even disingenuously) on conservative values are winning. Which in turn means voters hate Obie-care. HELLOOO a democrat running on not only a no vote on Obie-care , but a pro gun position? And he won in a democrat primary? Whoda Thunk?

    Whatever it takes to keep a grip on power, they will do it. If it means throwing Obama under the bus, it doesn’t matter, they will pick him up after the election.

    After what they have done over the past few years, NO DEMOCRATS are believable!~
