FACT-FINDING MISSION? “YOU LIE!”

|| By FITSNEWS || It’s exhausting being U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson … you know, casting all those votes in opposition to the best interests of American taxpayers (basically doing whatever liberal “Republican” Speaker John Boehner tells him to do).

All that selling out can make a status quo politician tired!

Anyway, Wilson found time to refresh himself during Congress’ August recess, though, spending a week at a five-star resort in Hawaii.  Wilson and fellow “Republican” U.S. Reps. Randy Forbes, Vicky HartzlerRichard Nugent, Paul Cook, Robert LattaSteven Palazzo and Randy Hultgren joined Democrats Joe CourtneyPete Aguilar and Brenda Lawrence on the trip.

Spouses were also invited …

Who paid for this vacation?  You did.

That’s right.  Rather than calling this trip what it was – a vacation – these congressmen referred to it as a fact-finding mission designed to familiarize them with “Hawaii’s Department of Defense assets” and the military’s various “missions within the region.”

Wow … really?

According to The Washington Post, these lawmakers (all except Aguilar and Lawrence, who flew commercial) departed the nation’s capital on August 31 “via military jet (business class) to stay at the oceanfront Sheraton Waikiki in Honolulu.”

That’s a four-star resort, people.

“Dinners were planned at the famous Hy’s Steak House – the superb porterhouse is always worth the $88.95 – and the upscale Roy’s Hawaii with its great fusion menu,” the Post’s Al Kamen reported.

Also, Kamen noted that the lawmakers’ schedules “thoughtfully included substantial ‘executive time.'”

Ah yes … “executive time.”

Guess Wilson needed to rest up for future sellouts …

Congressman Joe Wilson September 10, 2015 at 4:36 pm

Yeah, do you still have that Tango guy on here. Last year in the mid-terms he had left me a voice mail asking me to post an op-ed on his site, SC Political Digest or something like that. He went on and on about what a great member of Congress, a conservative beacon of light I think he called me. Said I was a true patriot and steward of the people’s money. We were talking about him on that little vacation, when we were having those $90 steaks. Some guests asked if we should order the chocolate volcano dessert, for like $35, and I just couldn’t stop laughing. Of course we had the desserts with brandy. But still, so funny.

Anyone with an ounce of reasoning knows that it is possible for Joe to both be correct in his Obama assessment AND be a DC POS. Pointing out he is a POS doesn’t mean Obama is not also a POS.

Isn’t it time for Joe to send out another one of those meaningless “constituent surveys”?

I’m talking about the ones that list categories such as crime, foreign policy, abortion, gun control, defense, immigration. etc, and where you rank these issues in order of importance. The problem with that is, he doesn’t have a place for you to note HOW you feel about those issues such as “for” or “against”. Of course, it doesn’t matter anyhow. Joe will just vote as Boehner tells him to after 0bama tells Boehner what to do.

dude, did your uncle/daddy hit you today? Are there tires on that truck in front of your singlewide or cinderblocks? (the double wide is the rich guy in your trailer park and it isn’t you). Again name one relative you have that actually fought for that flag you claim to have a connection with for some reason even though it had nothing to do with this state. I bet you cant as your mom didn’t even know your dad (other than he was somehow related). Heritage for you means doing your sister huh? Go back to chewing tobacco and eating squirrels redneck Joe.

12 years and out, total, house and/or senate. Never to be repeated. After their terms, a five year waiting period to become a lobbyist. Cancel all junkets of any kind. They can ‘fact find’ via the internet, like the rest of us.

A starting point.

When he can go to Piglocie and get enough Dims to make up the loss of Republican votes, he is pretty much bullet proof. And the way he gets back at those who oppose him , the vote has to be about nailed down to risk losing a committee chairmanship. Kinda like a rock and a hard place.

Until we stifle ignorant FUCKS like you…and concentrate on the BIG, True and most-corrupt political criminals…this country will swirl down the toilet…

Uneducated, incompetent, lemming, lockstep media – propped up by character-less, SELFISH politicians like Mark Sanford, just make the problem worse.

Police are being shot down in the streets, hardworking families have no insurance, even though they pay for it, jobs have been cut drastically, energy is WAY up since 2008 and salaries have bottomed out. ALL of it Obama’s (Democrats’) FAULT..and you act like a Fucking Know-Nothing every time a drop of the truth trickles out.

You are either really Fucking stupid, or you are one sinister bastard.

Listen, “four star” is a stretch. I have stayed at that exact hotel and paid the government rate for my room, which was $179. So, I am hardly horrified by this expenditure and the article loses credibility by failing to recognize possible need for military business in one of our nation’s largest, if not the largest, naval installations.
