Bachmann: investigate Obama quid pro quo: judicial appointment for ObamaCare vote

Will this become known as Matheson-Gate?

The president entertained Jim Matheson (D-UT) at the White House on March 3, 2010, and convinced him to switch his vote on Obamacare Nay to Yea.

The same day, March 3, 2010,… the president appointed Rep. Jim Matheson’s (D-UT) brother, Scott Matheson, to the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.

The press release from

The We Will Pass ObamaCare “by any means” Socialist Gameplan apparently triggered Obama to break the law by arrogantly indulging in an illegal manipulation of a Congressional Representative by engaging in this apparent quid pro quo… (this for that).

It’s called abuse of power, Barack

Many Americans, when learning of this apparent quid quo pro, feel the same as Rep. Michele Bachmann who has called for an Independent Investigation; Corruption is a VERY SERIOUS ISSUE:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

When asked about this controversy today, Robert Gibbs, the WH Press Secretary, characterized the questioning of the apparent quid pro quo as “silly.”

    Go Michelle Go.

    VF, great scoop! I like Bachmann’s spunk and articulate way she presents her views. She handed that dem his butt when he tried to dodge the issue. If the story is true, Obama will be vilified. It will be a major straw on his back.

  2. rosehips says:

    actually, vilified is not the correct word. He will be condemned, justifibly.

  3. samhenry says:

    The President has learned too much from Nancy Pelosi. He should pick another mentor or rather mother.

    Great posts today indeed.

  4. VotingFemale says:

    Rose, Barack gives the impression he is free to do what ever he wants to get ObamaCare passed… and the total left wing loon Alan Grayson, though well behaved when speaking to Michele, dismisses the incident as not relevant to passing ObamaCare… as if anything is permissible so long as it furthers achieving that goal… these people are so compulsive about passing this bill it is clinical.

  5. VotingFemale says:

    Thanks SamH, I always appreciate hearing folks like the blogposts. I work really hard on them.

    Obama’s Arrogance was learned at a young age, according to his step-sister.

  6. VotingFemale says:

    SamH? have you noticed a shift of tone? now that there is serious traction in opposition to Obama?

    I am not nearly as frustrated because Obama now only gets a pass from the far left. Most Moderates/Independents woke up and are standing up.

  7. samhenry says:

    Yes, I have noted the tone change. No longer the silver tongued orator in chief who puts us under his spell. The REAL Barack is emerging. The one who has been formed by two bears licking him into a form (as in that myth) Pelosi and Emanuel. He has emerged a full-fledged dictator and he is ruling by fiat.

    I have the TV on behind me and one of the members of the black caucus is on – James Clyburn He says that the public option not in this but as in the past with social security – they will put it in with future legislation. The absolute nerve. Spoken like a Muslim terrorist! We’re coming to get you and take over your country and your little dog, too.

    You are right, FOX

    What happened to Rose and CAT? I miss them.

    Barry is in quicksand and he knows it.
    We have to be determined to keep the water flowing.
    He can talk all he wants to, we know what he is by now, a charlatan, a liar, a pseudo dictator.

    “We the People” will never let that happen.

    You are correct samhenry.
    His policies are far too extreme.
    This country will not kneel to the socialistic policies they are attempting to ram down our throats without a major fight.

    There has been a shooting near the Pentagon at the rail station. I am certain it must be the Pentagon City station where you can get off and reach that marvelous mall or go to the Pentagon.

    When I lived in the area, on gray kind of depressing days, I would hop on over there. The wonderful open clear story architecture of the place always lifted my spirits. Just one more happy place where happiness has seeped in because of the times in which we live.

    I hope morning will dawn and there will be other beings here on board the great ship VF. I spent the night on board to see if anyone came. Woof, woof.
