The news was reporting that the newest reports on pork spending are in and rating the Congressmen on a scale of 0-100% where 100% being the best at not spending on pork and 0% the worst pork spenders.

McCaine 100%
Obama 10%
Biden 0%

And Obama and Biden are the ones who are going to reduce spending?

Even funnier is that AL kept all of earmarked Bridge to Nowhere money. Heard a Republican from AL talking about the bridge this morning. People in the Ketchikan area are still pissed that this project got scraped. People have to take a boat to get to the airport, which is what the bridge was about.

I wasn't aware ALabama had a bridge to nowhere too. Maybe McCain will build one in AriZona, or the Clintons will build one in ARkansas...:)

Please explaine how if they rejected the bridge that they still got to keep the money for said bridge. Did the dimowit congress just tell them to keep it.:)sphss If they had it would be all over the news to refute the fact that Palin vetoed it.:)bulb Do you use common sense when you think about these things.:)hand

Oh by the way Alaska is Ak not Al. Maybe you'll get it right some day.:)hand

I watched an older speech by Palin last night for when she was running for govenor and she was clearly in favor for the bridge before it got shot down my the rest of congress. She's bragging now that she vetoed it, but in the beginning, she was all over it.

Not hating, just stating facts like everyone likes.

There is a fine line between getting more facts and changing your mind and "flip flopping".

Bottom line is she started out with a weak position and changed her mind to a better one..

Very true, just curious of her motive is all. Did she change her mind because it got shot down by congress and had no chance, or because she thought it out and figured it was nothing but pork?

All I'm saying, is no ones perfect. They (politicians) are all out for themselves. IMO.
