Obama, Corzine, and the Radical Left Agenda

A lot has been written about how hard Barack Obama worked in a failed effort to get Jon Corzine re-elected as Governor of New Jersey.

o-corzine

In just the last two weeks, Obama made three campaign appearances for Corzine.  Obama’s VP Joe Biden made two campaign appearances for Corzine.  And a top Obama advisor was put in charge of the Corzine campaign.

As Hot Air noted, Obama and Corzine made it clear before the election just how closely aligned they are:

“He’s one of the best partners I have in the White House. We work together,” Mr. Obama said.

Mr. Corzine, entering the final push of his close re-election bid, wrapped himself in Mr. Obama’s brand, calling him “our friend, our partner.” Citing Mr. Obama’s win a year ago, he said a victory on Tuesday would help him support the White House’s agenda.

Michelle Malkin noted how Corzine paid homage to Big Labor and pluged Obamacare.

What I haven’t seen discussed much is how Obama and Corzine were “partners” in a radical left-wing agenda when they were both in the U.S. Senate.

In my opinion, some of the most radical left-wing Senators were those who voted against:

Confirmation John G. Roberts, Jr., of Maryland, to be Chief Justice of the United States

and

Motion to Invoke Cloture On The Nomination of Samuel A. Alito, Jr. of New Jersey, To Be An Associate Justice Of The Supreme Court

(Additional radical leftists joined in to vote against…

Confirmation Samuel A. Alito, Jr., of New Jersey, to be an Associate Justice

… but the most radical ones not only voted against confirmation but also voted against cloture in an attempt to filibuster the nomination).

Corzine voted against the confirmation of Roberts, and after Corzine became Governor of N.J., his hand-picked successor to his Senate seat, Robert Menendez, voted against cloture on the Alito nomination.

Look at the other names who voted against confirmation for Roberts and against cloture for Alito. In my opinion, they are some of the most radical leftists in government, and look at the positions they hold today. Here are the names, with just a few highlighted for emphasis, but they are all bad …

Akaka (D-HI)
Bayh (D-IN)
Biden (D-DE)
Boxer (D-CA)
Cantwell (D-WA)
Clinton (D-NY)
Corzine (D-NJ)
Dayton (D-MN)
Durbin (D-IL)
Feinstein (D-CA)
Harkin (D-IA)
Inouye (D-HI)
Kennedy (D-MA)
Kerry (D-MA)
Lautenberg (D-NJ)
Mikulski (D-MD)
Obama (D-IL)
Reed (D-RI)
Reid (D-NV)
Sarbanes (D-MD)
Schumer (D-NY)
Stabenow (D-MI)

    The most recent example is how PelosiCare wants to send you to jail if you don’t participate in their plans.

    You sure about this one? I’ve heard this claim before, but I can’t find any actual evidence of it, and I’ve tried searching the nearly 2000-page bill (the one the House voted on) for all relevant keywords (e.g. ‘jail’, ‘prison’, and ‘criminal’). Help me out here.

    As to my calling him an enemy combatant, I think his actions speak for themselves, starting with the title of his book in Indonesia:
    Assault Hope: From Jakarta to the White House

    I’m not sure how a translated title of a book counts as “his actions”, unless you think Obama translated it himself. And if you think that, I guess you don’t know much about the publishing industry.

    I don’t want to distract from the topic of that post (Support U.S. Armed Forces), so I’m responding to Jonah’s comments here in this post.

    My response:
    1)

    Ranking Member of the House Ways and Means Committee Dave Camp (R-MI) released a letter from the non-partisan Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) confirming that the failure to comply with the individual mandate to buy health insurance contained in the Pelosi health care bill (H.R. 3962, as amended) could land people in jail. The JCT letter makes clear that Americans who do not maintain “acceptable health insurance coverage” and who choose not to pay the bill’s new individual mandate tax (generally 2.5% of income), are subject to numerous civil and criminal penalties, including criminal fines of up to $250,000 and imprisonment of up to five years.

    2) Obama spent several years living in Indonesia, with a Muslim Indonesian step-father. Obama knows what the book title means. To suggest otherwise is naive.

  2. Ryan says:

    That fine is for “not paying your taxes”. I could just as easily say that the state forces people to pay for state executions under threat of fine or jail-time, even if they don’t agree with capital punishment.

    As for the title of the book, authors almost never have any say over what the title will be, especially in translations. Your first translation used the word Jihad, but you have since toned it down a bit.

  3. Frin says:

    Does it just kill you that your man, your idol, your “Values Voter” winner Huckabee thinks you’re a fool?

    “The conservatives’ obsession with Barack Obama’s country of birth, for instance, gets an eye roll. “Honest to God, if there was something to that, Hillary would have long before found it and used it in the primary,” he says.”

  4. Frin, no man is my “idol”.

    And while Obama claims to have been born at Kapi’olani Medical Center in Hawaii, he has yet to release any proof of that claim.

    When I see a document, certified authentic by the Hawaiian government, showing the name and signature of the delivering doctor at Kapi’olani Medical Center in Hawaii, then I’ll believe he was born there as claimed.

    Not a single member of Congress, and not a single elector for President, inspected any birth certificate for Barack Hussein Obama II certified and released from the state of Hawaii.

    It doesn’t matter whether someone thinks there’s “something to that” or not. The complete lack of due diligence is mind-blowing. It is a failure to keep their oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States.

    But regardless of his birth location, Obama is ineligible because his father was not a U.S. Citizen, so Obama was not born a natural born Citizen of the United States of America.

    No you won’t. You’ll find something else to complain about it. You already believe the Hawaiian health department is part of a conspiracy, why would you believe anything they release?

  6. I stand by what I said. Are you calling me a liar?

  7. Math says:

    I stand by what I said. Are you calling me a liar?

    No I’m not. I’m just extrapolating how you’ll react based on you have sliced and diced everything that was released by the Hawaii health department so far (hyphengate comes to mind).

    I guess we’ll have to wait for them to release what you claim will convince you and see.

    When the Republican Party regains control of congress obama will become a footnote in history (worst president ever) because the Republicans will require presidential candidates prove their citizenship. This (hopefully) may be the last hurrah for the democrat(oo) socialist party. May they all be tried and sentenced under their own hate crime(s) law.

  9. Wow. I am very impressed with the honesty and integrity of this post:

    We live in strange, strange times indeed.

    We are now officially committed fans of George W. and Laura Bush. We are fans of Dick Cheney. Our gratitude for them makes us newly protective of them, and the continued role they play in this country.

    After the primary battle of 2008, we never thought we’d go back to Texas for anything, but sometime in 2010 we want to find some event in Dallas the Bushes will be at so at least one of us can go up to them, tell them we are deeply sorry for ever thinking ill of them, and thank them from the bottom of our hearts for their service to America.

    We’re sure they will just stare at us and wonder why these gay Chicagoans are crying, but we don’t think we can get through a meeting with them without being emotional.

    What they did at Ft. Hood for those families humbles us. Every day, the Bushes are most likely doing something just like it behind the scenes.

    We hope if any of you encounter them you will let them know this is deeply appreciated beyond partisan lines.

    We will never look at the Bushes, the Bush presidencies, or their legacies the same again…and someday when his presidential library is built, we will be so proud to visit there and tell anyone will listen about November 10th, 2009, the day we finally appreciated former President George W. Bush and his wife Laura.

    Thank you for your service, Mr. President. We’re sorry we didn’t appreciate you while you were in office, but we thank Heaven we’ve wised up and can see the good you are out there doing, under the radar, today.

    Thank you former President George W. Bush and former First Lady Laura Bush

  10. statism always comes with handcuffs, and those cuffs always get explained by either fairness or patriotism. In this case, Pelosi uses both.

  11. Senate Republicans should follow the example set by then-Senators Obama, Biden, Clinton, Kerry, and by current Senators Reid, Schumer, Leahy, Durbin, Murray, Boxer, Feinstein, Menendez, Mikulski, Reed, Stabenow, Wyden, etc., and vote AGAINST CLOTURE on Obama’s SCOTUS nominee.

  12. Archive of Remarks of Senator Barack Obama on the Confirmation of Judge John Roberts

    In my opinion, some of the most radical left-wing Senators were those who voted against:

    Confirmation John G. Roberts, Jr., of Maryland, to be Chief Justice of the United States

    and

    Motion to Invoke Cloture On The Nomination of Samuel A. Alito, Jr. of New Jersey, To Be An Associate Justice Of The Supreme Court

    (Additional radical leftists joined in to vote against…

    Confirmation Samuel A. Alito, Jr., of New Jersey, to be an Associate Justice

    … but the most radical ones not only voted against confirmation but also voted against cloture in an attempt to filibuster the nomination).
