Is Congressman Kratovil Getting The Message?

I recently wrote about my Congressman, Frank Kratovil of Maryland’s First District. He is an alleged Blue Dog Democrat and he won the traditionally Republican District by a small margin thanks to the large amount of money infused by the Obama special interest groups and the endorsement of former MD 1 Congressman Wayne Gilchrest. This RINO endorsed Kratovil because he was upset that he lost the primary to a Republican who actually IS conservative. I don’t think Kratovil will be in his seat for long but I do know that he will hasten his exit by supporting the liberal/socialist positions of Obama.

I wrote of Kratovil’s lie. I called his office and his staffer assured me that Kratovil had not taken a position on the health care bill. He already voted for Cap and Trade so it is obvious he is not a Blue Dog but a lap dog. After I spoke with his staffer the “uncommitted” congressman was out hawking for Obama and his health care plan. Kratovil had indeed taken a position and it was contrary to the one held by the majority of his constituents.

My reminder to the staffer that Kratovil won by a small margin must have made it back to him. I am sure he has also received quite a few reminders of this by others in his district.

FT.com is reporting that several first term congressmen are reconsidering their positions.

Frank Kratovil and Tom Perriello, who as freshmen congressmen would be expected to back the party leadership, both say proposals for expanding coverage to the uninsured are un­acceptable in their current form and should focus more on cost savings.

Mr Kratovil, who was hanged in effigy by a healthcare protester at a town hall meeting in his state of Maryland, said he would have voted against legislation if it had come to a vote last month.

Kratovil NOW says that he would have voted against the bill in its current form so why was he out hawking for Obama? Why was he trying to sell the boondoggle to his constituents when he held his town hall meeting? Now that he has heard from his constituents he is singing a different song. That is good because he should be listening but make no mistake, he is all for the Obama agenda but he is also worried about being reelected. In the final analysis he knows that his constituents are the people who will put him back in office, not Obama and the party mob bosses.

Losing elections is why the Democrats want to have Republicans on board for this. If they can get Republicans to vote for it they can allow their vulnerable members (like Kratovil) to vote against it and be able to tout his Blue Dog credentials. No Republican should vote for this. Force the Democrats to pass this without any Republican support and force people like Kratovil to choose between his party and his constituents. We cannot give these people an easy way out of the mess they created.

I will be holding Kratovil accountable for his votes and right now he is in trouble for his vote for cap and trade. I worked very hard to get rid of Gilchrest and I will do the same to get rid of Kratovil.

We must get rid of all enemies foreign and DOMESTIC.

Anyone that votes for these socialistic programs is a domestic enemy. Kratovil is in good company with all the enemies of the state in the Obama administration including the chief thug Obamadinejad.

Kratovil had better straighten up and fly right. He needs to remember who he works for and he better do what we want. Gilchrest played games and lost his job. Kratovil will go a lot faster in the conservative First District of Maryland.

    There will be an accounting when the dust settles, but I am more hopeful than I was a couple of weeks ago. This “vacation” might just make some Senators look twice at Cap and Tax when it comes to the Senate floor. I certainly hope so.

    Hey Dog –

    You must have been at the wacky tabacky again. Let,s throw a little light and cold truth at your twisted interpretation.

    Kratovil won in district that went heavily for McCain. He won because he was and is a competent, decent, moderate individual who ran a respectable campaign.

    His opponent was/is a dishonest, right-wing extremist who ran a despicable campaign, both in the primary and the general election. His main support was from “The Club for Growth” (or, as Mike Huckabee refers to them, “The Club for Greed”). His supporters are typified by the grinning, contemptible yahoo last seen “lynching” Frank Kratovil.

    The people of the Eastern Shore (and other parts of District 1) have more decency, intelligence, and plain old common sense than the wingnuts give them credit for.

    Right, Inspector. Kratovil is a decent guy who won against a bad guy who happens to be a naval officer and a doctor.

    Kratovil got a lot of Gilchrest’s voters after he endorsed him. The district went for McCain and the ONLY reason Kratovil won is the money from the left and the LIES in the ads added to the Gilchrest endorsement.

    Yahoos on the Eastern shore had the wool pulled over their eyes and were not bright enough to figure it out.
