Who are the NERD fund donors Mr Snyder?
The Midas Touch
Bart Stupak was one of the first congress critters to self destruct and became quite toxic when voting for the Obamacare plan that does indeed provide a mechanism where babies can be slaughtered in the womb with payment by taxpayers. He betrayed the trust of his constituents, a decidedly right to life community of Upper Peninsula and Northern Lower Michiganders.
Stupaks betrayal came at a cost. He realized quickly enough that his upcoming campaign was probably a lost cause, and announced his decision to not run for reelection April 9, 2010.
In fact, many of those critters still pursuing the dream of perpetual political payoff through a lifetime of "service" are realizing they "stepped in it," and are currently running back home shaking off their jackboots so maybe it doesn't stink so much come November 2nd. The spell apparently has been broken, and the realization that overstepping constitutional authority might come at a cost.
They are pretending THEY didn't support the health care plan... though they might have voted for it.. another case of what "is.. is.." perhaps. They have gained new smarts as judgment day approaches in a month from now.

Somehow, that 20-20 brilliance has escaped Michigan Democrat Gary McDowell, who apparently doesn't understand the impact of association with failure. He proudly displays the endorsement of the man he would replace, the man whom showed such a failure in leadership, that made it impossible to hang on to a mere semblance of principle, and remain the defender of the unborn.
A man with the blood of the undefended on his hands.
McDowell's response to the endorsement of Stupak? To proudly display it on his election site. Where Stupak's words ring without a hint of remorse for his breach of trust with CD1 voters.
"Together we have accomplished a great deal. However, much more work remains to be done. The people of northern Michigan need a strong leader who will continue to fight for us in Washington. Northern Michigan needs Gary McDowell!"
McDowell is proud to pick up the baton for the last lap around the track.
McDowell, like Stupak, claims to oppose abortion, yet what happens when the party that spends too much puts a little pressure on to test that stand? Bart Stupak Knows, and its likely that Gary McDowell would find out quickly enough and might cave as well. Whether Democrats can be allowed to hold such a trust again in Michigan's 1st congressional district is certainly open to debate.
Stupak's word should have been golden. But touched by the leadership of the Democrats in Congress, it was soon discovered to be one for fools.
One would suspect Dan Benishek might offer the better alternative.
