Dem Representative Admits: Obama Has Become a Political Liability
Worst. Socialist. President. Ever.
Representative Dan Boren (D-OK) admits Barack Obama is becoming a political liability…
But, he has voted with him 81% of the time anyway.
The Politico reported:
Rep. Dan Boren, a conservative Democrat in the reddest state in America, Oklahoma, says in the bluntest terms imaginable that President Obama has become a political liability:
“Barack Obama is very unpopular,” said Boren, who represents Oklahoma’s 2nd Congressional District. “He got 34 percent of the vote statewide, and less in our district. If he were to run for re-election today, I bet it would be even worse.”
Boren points out that he does support some of Obama’s initiatives, like the economic stimulus package. He has voted for Obama-supported bills 81 percent of the time, according to a recent Congressional Quarterly study. But despite this, he said the president is too liberal.
Remember: There is no such a thing as a blue-dog democrat– But certain liberals do vote occasionally with the GOP to stay in power.

UPDATE: Tom W. offers this:
Call or e-mail your senators and representatives. Tell them you oppose cap and trade and nationalized health care. It’s having an effect. They’re listening to us. If we kill these two policies, we rob Obama of his political capital and he’s over.
Here’s what I wrote:
I am writing to express my opposition to both the Waxman-Markey bill and President Obama’s proposed health-care reforms. They will cost far too much, reduce my choices and standard of living, and limit my freedoms. As an American, I find them unacceptable. This nation was founded on the concepts of personal responsibility and individual freedom. It is not the role of the federal government to make my life worse, particularly when the policies in question are based on debunked science and failed political philosophies.
We have the power. We can stop Obama. Make your voice heard, and we will win.
