In Passing

Indiana Rube Self-Identifies

‘‘You fucked up. You trusted them.’’  Dept

Rep. Marlin Stutzman (R-IN) says that House GOP leadership... duped him into switching his vote on the procedural measure that set up the 1,774-page, $1.1 trillion cromnibus spending bill backed by House Speaker John Boehner and President Barack Obama to pass.
Stutzman says he switched his vote on the floor because House GOP leadership... promised him that if the rule passed, the cromnibus would be replaced by a short-term spending measure...
...and a pony.  There has to have been a pony!

But no!
‘‘Earlier today, I supported the Rule because I was informed by Leadership that the CROmnibus was dead and a short term CR would take its place,’’ Stutzman said in the statement.   ‘‘I was very surprised and even more disappointed to see the CROmnibus back on the floor.  The American people deserve better.’’
Certainly, ‘‘the American people’’ do.  Too bad that what they’ve got is you.
All of this comes after Boehner and GOP leadership engaged in procedural chicanery to substantively alter a bill... that was supposed to be the cover vote against Obama's executive amnesty for Republicans last week. Instead, leadership inserted language that actually provides a legal justification for Obama's executive amnesty into the bill.
IOW, they’d already lied to you once.

Hellofajob, Marlin!

UPDATE (141214):  Chris Muir nails it.
