Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

ObamaCare claims its first Democrat victim

Remember when the Moron-in-Chief and his buddy Axelturf said they welcomed the opportunity to run on ObamaCare this November?  I say “Full speed ahead, Barry!”  Details:

Democrat Alan Mollohan became the first member of the U.S. House to be ousted this spring primary season after his opponent mounted a campaign that questioned the 14-term congressman’s ethics and support for federal health care reform.

Mollohan conceded after unofficial returns showed that with 82 percent of precincts reporting, state Sen. Mike Oliverio was ahead 56 percent to 44 percent. It ends his 28 years in the House.

Mollohan was dogged by ethical questions, and the more conservative Oliverio ran an aggressive campaign portraying him as corrupt and out of touch. Conservative media rallied around Oliverio, along with anti-abortion groups angry over Mollohan’s support of health care reform.

Mollohan defended his record, arguing that most of his constituents wanted the reform he has championed for years. He said he worked hard to ensure no public funds are used for abortions and is confident the legislation achieved that, even though the National Right to Life Political Action Committee endorsed Oliverio.

Mollohan sounds like Stupuke and Ben(edict) Nelson with that canard about federal funds not being used for abortion under ObamaCare.  With Stupunk’s amendment stripped out, and a toothless executive order afterwards, there is nothing to stop federal funds from going to insurance plans that cover abortion.  These vermin are disingenuous…but then again, they’re Democrats.

Mollohan was also demonstrably corrupt, and that may have also doomed his campaign.  But with his opponent having been vocally against ObamaCare, and with most Americans (including 34% of Democrats) wanting ObamaCare repealed, there’s no other reasonable way to interpret Mollohan’s defeat as anything other than a rebuke of him and his support for ObamaCare.
