How does the media reconcile these conflicting beliefs? Thus far, the media has ignored Barack Obama's connections to Goldman Sachs. Otherwise, one might be forced to ask the uncomfortable questions: Does Obama care more about Wall Street than Main Street?

Rather than drive or fly commercial planes, a small group of lawmakers has billed taxpayers for the convenience of getting to Tallahassee on private planes -- some of them linked to lobbyists and companies with a stake in the decisions legislators make. The 19 Democratic and Republican legislators took private flights totaling more than $37,000 during the recent legislative session, state records show. That represents a fraction of the state's $66.5 billion budget, but it raises questions about the relationships between lawmakers and the groups seeking their votes. And in a time of deep bud

It comes down to this: Each "representative" that voted to pass Cap and Trade has violated their Congressional Oath of Office to "well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office." How on earth can you--in good faith--fulfill the duties of the office by voting to pass 1500 pages of legislation YOU HAVEN'T READ?!

So here's my own personal Oath: I do hereby solemnly swear to remove from office every representative who thinks it's ok to pass 1500 pages of ill-conceived legislation without knowing what's in it.

Seriously. The gloves are coming off. Who's with me?
