Obey/Pelosi Whacked by White House

This Congresscritter is another Joe Biden.

Rep. Jim Cooper (D-TN) -- one of the lead Blue Dogs -- made a startling admission to lefty Liberadio on Sunday, suggesting the White House quietly encouraged him to buck House leadership on the stimulus.

...I got in terrible trouble with our leadership because they don’t care what’s in the bill, they just want it pass and they want it to be unanimous. They don’t mind the partisan fighting cause that’s what they are used to. In fact, they’re really good at it. And they’re a little bit worried about what a post-partisan future might look like. If members actually had to read the bills and figure out whether they are any good or not. We’re just told how to vote. We’re treated like mushrooms most of the time."

Keep talking, Jim...

While Dave Obey has managed to keep a low profile on the Porkulus Bill, his fingerprints are all over this thing. Porkulus is perfectly in keeping with his 1930's mentality and Rasputin-esque power-madness.
