    Default US politics: much more forceful than ours, Dem Gov shoots Obama's bill with real gun

    In general US politics is a lot more confrontational / forceful / hyperbolic than ours

    West Virginia Gov. Joe Manchin, the state's Democratic Senate nominee feels the need to show that he is against some of "city boy" Obama's policies ... and so starts a shootin' at the Cap and Trade bill


    Manchin actually puts a bullet through Cap and Trade bill – CNN Political Ticker - CNN.com Blogs

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIJORBRpOPM&feature=player_embedded]YouTube - Dead Aim - Joe Manchin for West Virginia TV Ad[/ame]

    Is thsia good or bad aspect of US politics ?

    A couple of posts seemed to disappear there. What happened?

    Unfortunately, just like the hypocritical Blue Dog Democrats that you donít hear much about nowadays, when it actually comes to standing up against the Obama/Pelosi/Reid triforce of Progressive reform, Gov. Joe Manchin will be switching out his ammunition and only shooting blanks.

    Isnít electioneering grand. You can lie your arse off, and not be held accountable for your prevarications until years later when elections come around again.

    The ad seems to have worked, last I heard Manchin had surged into a 10 pt lead. Seems Obamas coattails have shrunk.

    Mr Manchin is a clever man .He dosent overestimate the intelligence of his audience . He must surely have a career in the american media if he dosent get elected . Though to be honest , I will be surprised if that man is not president within ten years .
