Sen. DeMint: "Obama Admin. the Most Anti_American, Anti-Business in My Lifetime"

Original post made by agreed, Amador Estates, on Aug 11, 2011

I wholeheartedly agree with Senator Jim DeMint.

Here is an excerpt of the link below...
"We saw within a few days that this President was going to be heavy-handed, he was going to implement his agenda and pay back his political allies, and it just went on from there to ObamaCare and then to Dodd-Frank. It has been the most anti-business and I consider anti-American administration in my lifetime. Things that are just so anathema to the principles of freedom, and everything he has come up with centralizes more power in Washington, creates more socialist-style, collectivist policies. This president is doing something that’s so far out of the realm of anything Republicans ever did wrong, it’s hard to even imagine," Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) "Janet Mefferd Show."

The only thing I would add is that many many Congressional Democrats also have demonstrated their Anti-Business, Anti-American especially include Representatives Pete Stark and Jerry McNerney.

Senator Jim DeMInt DRAFT DODGER. I wonder why he did help defend the United States of America during the Viet War?

Great posts, Cholo. Thank you! It shows DeMint's cowardice. And the missing cards in the deck of those who advocate such BS.

Great posts, but they have nothing to do with the original topic. ADHD much?

Senator DeMint gives conservatives a bad name. He is worthy of the label "radical" because he is so right of even the most conservative members of congress that he is outside the realm or reason. He is a big friend of big oil, big corporations, and big donors, and seems to lack any compassion.

Just a sampling:
Voted NO on repealing tax subsidy for companies which move US jobs offshore.
Supports banning openly gay teachers from public schools.
Voted YES on more prosecution and sentencing for juvenile crime, including prison time for 14 year olds.
Voted YES on prohibiting needle exchange programs and banning federal funding for needle-exchange programs.
Voted YES on allowing school prayer during class time.
Voted NO on removing oil & gas exploration subsidies.
Voted NO on tax incentives for energy production and conservation.
Voted NO on campaign finance reform banning soft-money contributions.
Voted YES on decreasing gun waiting period from 3 days to 1.

And his stance on restricting access to birth control for all minors is nothing short of regressive.

He will never get my vote, and I have always called myself a conservative.

I don't get it? What's not to like? Has he ever voted to raise taxes on the rich? I rest my case!

After the obsessive posts about Dan Quayle the past few days, I think he would have no problem getting a restraining order against you stalkers.
I am glad to see you've moved past Bush and back to Quayle. Now that's progressive!
