Here, you are urged and encouraged to run your mouths about something important.

If people thought Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson had it bad back home with his constituents after the "Cornhusker Kickback", just wait until Bart Stupak's constituents are heard. Actually, they're already being heard via a flood of donations going to Stupak's opponent, Daniel Benishek, who is a pro-life surgeon.

Via the Cypress Times:
Daniel Benishek is running for Congress against Bart Stupak. Since Stupak announced that he cut a deal with Barack Obama and will now support Health Care Reform, Benishek’s Facebook page has been on fire with well-wishes, and commitments of donations.
Be sure to check out Benishek's Facebook page, which is seeing quite a bit more visitors lately.

It would not surprise me in the least if Bart Stupak was Obama's ace in the hole all along. Perhaps he was hoping the he and his posse could stay on the sidelines and watch as 216 other Democrats made the difference. Maybe he even told Obama only to count on him as a last resort, that he didn't want to have to face his constituents as the man responsible for passing this health care monstrosity.

Based on the video of him at that town hall back in October, it's quite likely. Being the "ace in the hole" may just turn out to be worse for Stupak because as the leader of the alleged "pro-life" Democrats, he's not only the face of that bloc of House members but he's also the face of the deciding vote. Regardless of how wide the margin of victory will be for the House vote, it may as well be 216-215 with Stupak casting the final vote. He's cast himself as the person he so desperately wanted to avoid being.

The name Stupak could one day very soon become synonymous with the likes of Benedict Arnold, Woodrow Wilson, and Neville Chamberlain. Sleep well Bart, though you may need some medicinal help doing it. Don't worry, as a congressman, you'll have access to anything you need.

Look for Las Vegas to be taking bets on when Democrat Bart Stupak (D-MI) is going to have his Woodrow Wilson moment - the latter realizing what he had done to his country by convincing a then Democratic congress to pass the Federal Reserve Act. He reportedly told his closest friends and family, on his death bed that he had "betrayed his country". He is reported to have said this after realizing how much damage he had done. One look at the U.S. Dollar / Federal Reserve and it's quite clear that Wilson didn't know the half of it.

As it stands now, Bart Stupak could end up being the man responsible for thrusting his country into bankruptcy via government-run health care / takeover. As head of the pro-life Democrats and apparently the only obstacle standing in the way of Obama and Pelosi, Stupak appears to have sold his vote for an Executive Order signed by Barack Obama.
Under the agreement, President Barack Obama would sign an executive order ensuring that no federal funding will go to pay for abortion under the health reform plans. In addition, Stupak will get to state his concerns about abortion funding in the bill during a colloquy on the House floor during the debate.

And then, Stupak and several other Democratic holdouts over abortion will sign on to the bill, the sources said. The agreement would almost certainly give House Speaker Nancy Pelosi the 216 votes she needs to secure an historic health reform vote by day’s end — capping a yearlong drive to achieve Obama’s signature legislative goal.
What's amazing here is that it is laughable for Stupak to actually think he can trust any commitment made by Barack Obama. Perhaps Representative Paul Ryan put it best:
"That is not the rule of law. That's the rule of man. One man can sign an executive order and one man can repeal that again, the president of the United States," said Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis. "So for those of us in the pro-life movement and the -- and my Democrat friends who are pro-life, that doesn't cut it. A executive order is not something that is permanent law."
The irony here is that this deal Stupak made will trump all of the other special deals - Cornhusker Kickback, Louisiana Purchase, et. al. - in its significance yet its intrinsic value, unlike all those special deals is less than $0 when you consider whose signature he's relying on. Something tells me that Stupak very well may know this EO is worth nothing. This video of him at a town hall in Cheboygan, MI this past October may indicate he's been looking for nothing more than a way to tell his constituents that he fought for pro-life, knowing full well, he did no such thing. Caught on video, admitting that he would vote for a bill that allowed taxpayer funded abortions if it came down to brass tacks.

Either Bart Stupak has deceived Americans into believing he is pro-life or he is allowing himself to be deceived in order to appease them. Regardless, his name very well could live in infamy in America's history books. Despicable is far too weak of a word to describe what he's done.
