From a March 21 BigJournalism.com post, titled, "Bart Stupak: Liar, Cheap Date, Soon-to-Be-Former Congressman from Michigan"
Holy Mackinac Bridge, Batman. The blogosphere is calling Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) a "cheap date."
Considering what it took to get him to vote for the U.S. Senate health care bill, that's a fitting way to describe Slick Stupak. According to Stupak, he struck a deal with President Obama, trading his 'yes' vote for a 'worthless, non-binding' executive order prohibiting federal funding for abortions. And perhaps an airport or three.
Meanwhile, the President's pledge to sign an executive order to restrict abortion funding is hollow. Experts agree that such an order cannot stand constitutionally in the face of legislation to the contrary. Stupak, a law school graduate, must know that. Also, one executive order can giveth, and another can just as easily taketh away.
Really cheap date.

From a March 21 RedState.com post:
Already we have a few Republicans positioning themselves in grand theatrics to call for full repeal of Obamacare. But these same Republicans in the past have talked about the good parts of the bill and how repeal should be measured. The only way to ensure today's rhetoric turns into future consistent actions is to surround these Republicans with true conservative warriors.
Friends, if we are going to destroy the Democrats, we must first build up an army of real conservatives in Congress. Half measures, Democrat-lite, and men who compromise in favor of more government must be unacceptable.
There is a God, there is good, and there will be a last day. And on that last day we will win. Victory comes though we know not when. So we must be happy warriors until the end -- warriors willing to fight with a smile and willingness to sacrifice for freedom.
We have not yet begun to fight.
From the March 21 WorldNetDaily article titled, "Bloody Sunday, 2010: House OKs health bill":
Democrats in the House needed 216 votes to pass the Senate's version of a sweeping health-care package Barack Obama has been pushing with all his presidential might.
They tallied 219.
Democrats hailed the vote as a landmark victory.
"Today is the day that is going to rank with the day we passed the civil rights bill in 1964," said Rep. John Dingell, D-Mich. "Today we're doing something that ranks with what we did with Social Security or Medicare. This is a day of which we can all be proud."
"This is an American proposal that honors the traditions of our country," said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., summing up the initiative in one word: "opportunity."

In case you're wondering what got him so mad at Ezra Klein, it was this tweet: "So Paul Ryan says European systems unsustainable? And yet, if we had their spending, our deficit problem would disappear entirely."
