The Nation loves Marcy (Kaptur)

My headline refers not to our nation as a whole, but to The Nation magazine, a left wing magazine and Web site that has named U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur, D-Toledo, one of its "Most Valuable Progressives of 2008."

Kaptur gets the nod as the "Most Valuable House Member." The House has 435 members, so The Nation must like our Marcy a lot.

The magazine's article also bestows liberal love on Policy Matters Ohio, a Cleveland think tank whose studies on foreclosures in Ohio have been cited in this paper, and on University of Ohio professor Peter Linebaugh's book, "The Magna Carta Manifesto, Liberties and Commons for All." Bernie Sanders of Vermont is the magazine's favorite senator and they love Rachel Maddow, too, if that gives you an idea of where the Nation is coming from.

Congresswoman Kaptur, meanwhile, has marked the new session of Congress by issuing a press release noting that she is the "longest serving Democratic woman in House history."

Her press release notes, "The Ohio delegation now stands at ten Democrats to eight Republicans, the first time since 1934 the delegation has had a two seat Democratic margin."

i like Mrs.Kaptur's stance on many things, including the bailout, or not to bailout. she's pretty sharp. for many of her stances over the years i have agreed with her.
as far as rachel maddow goes, she should throw herself in front of a bus and save the world from her liberal veiws. keith olberman too for that matter. there's a couple of real losers for ya. msnbc trash network. the liberal democrat news channel.

This morning in his uh press conference, President-elect Uh-bama, complained that he uh, uh is 'inheriting' a uh trillion dollar budget deficit and then he uh went on to say that uh he intends to uh spend even more.

Gotta luv the conversation fillers of Caroline ‘you know’ Kennedy and Barack Uh-bama.

Hillary ‘uh’ Clinton is another one…

Have these people never heard of Toastmasters or a good speech coach?

I like how Ms. Kaptur is referred to as a 'progressive' and not a liberal or a socialist.

'The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of 'liberalism' they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.'

Socialism is on it's way...The goverment is trying very hard to bail--uh--buy out everything...
Obama complained about the deficit, yet he will double it. watch...and see.

How surpising that a collectivist magazine loves a collectivist thug.
