Sen. Grassley writes nonsensical tweets attacking Obama.

Sen. Grassley writes nonsensical tweets attacking Obama.

In his weekly radio address, President Obama declared its time to deliver on health reform. The White House is sending the message to lawmakers and the American public that it is preparing an intense push for legislation that will include speeches, town-hall-style meetings and much deeper engagement with lawmakers. Apparently over-sensitive to the White Houses public calls to deliver on health care reform (or upset that the President is visiting Paris), Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) wrote these nonsensical tweets against Obama today:



While Grassley was popping off, White House officials were showering him with praise. Senior adviser David Axelrod said on CBS: I would hope people of both parties would get together. I was encouraged by Sen. Grassleys comments in the last few days suggesting that he thought we could get there. The AP notes, Grassleys attitude is significant because any hope for bipartisan consensus on health care rests on an alliance between Grassley and Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, D-Mont.


:wtf:




:rofl:

1. I really thought the guy was coming around to our side.
I figured he would jump before Specter.





Sorry Iowa, 1/2 of your representation in the Senate is pure crazy.

Or does he think that's how the kids talk on the ethernets?

7. I think Grassley needs to rein a staffer in.
One, Grampa Chuck is among those senators least likely to Tweet. I'd be surprised if he's ever gotten the hang of e-mail. Two, it doesn't sound like him.

9. Poor punkins - having to work on the WKEND!
It's not like it's the future of American health care at stake. And that, as Congress, they're responsible for creating the plan that they should have created LONG LONG ago.

So, I'll send Grassley a donut so he doesn't starve.

11. Grassley's attempts at internet talk are kind of cute
much like a doddering old grandparent trying to send an Internet Mailage to his children is cute.

Coming from a legislator, it's just pathetic.
