    For more reasons that one, babykiller Stupak decides that it's no fun to be in Congress anymore.

    TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. – Democratic Rep. Bart Stupak, targeted for defeat by Tea Party activists for his crucial role in securing House approval of the health care overhaul, said Friday he would retire from Congress this year.

    The nine-term congressman told The Associated Press he could have won re-election and insisted he wasn't being chased from the race by the Tea Party Express, which is holding rallies this week in his northern Michigan district calling for his ouster. Instead, Stupak said he was tired after 18 years in office and wanted to spend more time with his family.

    He was going to lose anyways, just one of many democrats who have sold out their districts and are now "shocked" that they are going to get voted out.

    Gee do you think that someohow Obama promised him some cushy job in the administration for his vote? How long before he gets some Obama appointment?

    For everyone who rails against "big business" could you imagine the indictments that would follow if a business acted in the manner that the Democrats have in passing this legislation? How is any of this not bribery?

    Not sure about points 1 and 3, but I agree with you on 2. Back room deals are what they are and always have been. Wouldn't surprise me if Stupak landed with a golden parachute. I think it's funny, though, how some people (not necessarily you FTW) are cranking about that now as if their presidents never did this.

    Thanks, grammar dick.

    Sorry I did not have proper grammar when insulting one of the high foot soldiers of your messiah. Please forgive me, oh Obamanite.

    I'm having a great day. Any day that I am not in one of Obama's fema internment camps is a beautiful day.

    I didn't know until today that he'd been a cop. Did anyone else know that?

    I also have a new respect for him after finding out that he worked full time while getting his bachelors (and also graduated Magna cum laude) and his law degree.

    Those are not easy things to do.

    Of course, he's also reported to have lived in the C Street House and to be affilliated with The Family, and that loses him some of those respect points.

    Win some, lose some.

    Wouldn't want him watching my back, he has no character, he caves in under pressure, again, good riddance, he can now go home and play with his cat.

    Yes, he was going to be the poster-boy of conservative Democrat betrayal. Now we need someone else to pick on...
