The willingness of democrats to commit political suicide to appease their party leaders never ceases to amaze me. It is much more understandable among the liberal 'true believers,' but even moderates like Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.) are willing to throw themselves on their swords for Barack Obama, Harry Reid or Nancy Pelosi. When fifty-seven percent of voters nationwide oppose Harry Reid's health care bill (likely more in Nebraska), how can Senator Nelson rationalize voting against his constituents on such an important issue? Republicans aren't passing up this golden opportunity. They have launched a Give Ben The Boot website.
My Way News reported:
The chairman of Nebraska's Republican Party declared Nelson's decision to be the end of his political career in Nebraska, and within hours of Nelson's announcement, the state GOP launched a Web site, , to collect funds to oust the Democrat in the 2012 election.http://www.givebentheboot.com
