Liberal always put pork into everything. I guess its their way of still trying to prove Obama isn't muslim. I think he better hurry with his fake negotiations so he won't miss Ramadan in Hawaii.

If our idiot government gives 60 Billion to those blue stater's, then everyone that has a tree branch blow down in their yard during a windstorm should get compensation. Have that a-hole Obama give his voter's some greenback's out of his own pocket. We pay for enough free stuff that is doled out to Obama's constituent's.

I'm shocked!!!!
"Our" government involved with wasteful spending?
How could this happen with Harry Reid in the Senate and the King of Pork in the White House?
Sit back and enjoy as the idiot DemocRats bankrupt the country. At that point, you will be glad that you bought your weapons before that effing a-hole in the White House "improved" gun control for your safety... Or perhaps call your Congressman and tell him to shove Obama's proposals where they came from - UP HIS EFFING A$$.

WASHINGTON -- Rep. Tim Scott, a freshman tea party Republican, will become South Carolina's first black senator, Gov. Nikki Haley, announced Monday, appointing the congressman to fill the seat left vacant by Jim DeMint.

"It is a great day for South Carolina," Haley said, speaking at the statehouse in Columbia. "It is a historic day for South Carolina."

Haley was joined by Scott and DeMint, as well as the state's senior senator, Lindsey Graham, and members of its congressional delegation.

Scott, accepting the appointment, heaped praise on his predecessor.

Republican put blacks in leadership rolls, Liberals do like they did with Pelosi, and make the black her second and third fiddle for a token.
