Town haul

Senator Ben Nelson spoke to the Lincoln Rotary yesterday, and both the OWH and the LJS reported on it. Though only the OWH mentioned the Americans for Prosperity protest going on outside.

You think if say, Jane and the Boldies, had a protest outside a Mike Johanns speech, The Don would have mentioned it in his article? We are pretty sure of the answer to that.

In any case, the AFPers were complaining about Nelson’s failure to hold any publicized Town Hall meetings during the August recess — unlike the rest of Nebraska’s Congressional delegation who have all had several.

We suggest playing the “Chicken Dance” song for him at the next gathering.

***

And Nelson continues to tell those that will listen that there is lots of “misinformation” about ObamaCare, and that people shouldn’t believe what they hear about it.

Sounds remarkably similar to what the President told a farmer about new Ag regulations, while on his bus trip across the voting public. That was just before a reporter spent a day and half trying to find out about the regs, and then never got any of the answers.

Gee, could there be unknowns and unexpecteds in ObamaCare? Could such a thing be possible? Well, maybe you should just trust the President and the Senator. They know best.

***

And Yahoo! News reports that MOST Members of Congress are skipping TownHall meetings — like Senator Nelson — this break. They note that 67% of Democrats and 50% of GOPers in the House are skipping out. But that does NOT include Lee Terry, Adrian Smith or Jeff Fortenberry.

And the story includes Terry at a TownHall (from a KETV report). Interesting though, at Terry’s meeting he gets a loud tongue-lashing from some gray-haired dude about Terry NOT raising taxes.

Wait, that can’t be a Tea Partier then, right? We have heard that Tea Partiers hate raising taxes. But we have also heard that it is only loud Tea Partiers that raise their voices and yell at such meetings. And this guy (at :37 of the report) certainly does not use his “inside voice”.

Oh, we are so confused.

But just in case you were worried that Terry’s meeting wouldn’t be saved for posterity, we see that a Tracker is there to video the whole thing. And it seems that said blonde-haired Tracker just got back from Zimbabwe, by his choice of blouse.

We are told that it is an outside group that is paying for this videography. Hmm, just the type of out of state group that Senator Nelson says is putting undue influence on Nebraskans. We are sure that “on the one hand” such groups are bad but “on the other hand” they’re good.

***

And speaking of constituent meetings, we see that during yesterday’s East Coast Earthquake, Jane and the Boldies were scurrying from the Senate Office Buildings, after meeting, apparently, with the Nebraska Senators’ staff. Jane had complained that the House members didn’t set up meetings to discuss hating oil.

But then, Terry, Smith and Fortenberry are all in…Nebraska. At public TownHall meetings.

To quote the great Homer J., “I’m livin’ in a cuckoo clock!”

***

And we see that Janie was quoted in Politico as follows:

“This is not just some liberal tree-hugging effort. This is regular folks telling Obama that we’re serious.”

Whew! Glad we finally got Jane to admit that her’s is a liberal tree-hugging effort.

But next time Jane, please put a “President” in front of that “Obama”. Oh, and also let us know how you “regular folks” financed your trip, accommodations and bail for your multi-week trip. ‘Cause all “regular folks” have their own zillionaire sugar-daddy, yeah?

And thanks to all of you Leavenworth Street sugar…cousins (?) who continue to buy your Amazon.com loot via L.St.’s Amazon link. You are helping us to keep the lights on and treating yourself to a brown box at your doorstep all in one click! (And it is zero extra cost to you!) Mucho appreciado.

    Who watches those three children of hers while she is burning more carbon in the last 2 weeks than I did in the last 8 months?

    Did Sugar buy her a live in Nanny? I can’t see Scott doing that 24/7, isn’t he supposed to be blowing hot air into peoples homes to prove that they need to hire him to make them more energy efficient?

    Wait, if Jane is never home, and the Nanny is their 24/7, then who is tending Scott’s garden?

    And now Ernie wants back in the Legislature………. Do ya think he will win it back?

    The whole Ben Nelson issue is getting easier and easier to deal with. He voted for the bill without reading all of it, and now he says he would vote for it again. Yet now we know, hind sight being 20/20 and all, that the bill is fundamentally flawed and unconstitutional. Yet Ben would still vote for something he knows we the people don’t want, and is UNCONSTITUTIONAL, Should be pretty easy to campaign against him on that alone, not to mention the national spot light on the KICKBACK!

  3. Terry Lee says:

    Anon mommy- agree with Jane or not at least her opinion is sought nationally. The only one that will listen to you and you Lee Terry love- laced message is Leavenworth st

  4. Terry Lee says:

    When they invite Jane to be on a show that is sought. If she for instance posted on this blog that is offering. I believe the former not the latter is the case..

    Btw vote for Terry Lee 2012 presidential canidate

  5. Lizzie says:

    Hahahaha “Terry Lee” Apparently you have not read all Janiepant’s unsolicited comments on this blog; some under fake names like “Terry Lee.”

    Hey Sweeps! Refreshing as always to read what you got going on. Did you see formerly famous actress and mental-breakdown survivor/advocate Margot Kidder got arrested at Janiepant’s protest at the President’s more-vacant-than-usual house? Janiepants and Scooter and BoldNE are so good at surrounding themselves with quality people.

    Poor Ms. Kidder has had major mental health problems and the fact that this “protest” is the only thing she could find to hitch her wagon to in an attempt to increase her stock in trade, is sad and pathetic. Very sad, and very pathetic.

  6. Thanks for the kudos Lizzie.
    Who else was at the protest, and who do they hang out with?
    Let’s find out tomorrow, only on…Leavenworth Street!
    (duh, duh, duuuuuhhhhh!)

    I hear Tantoo Cardinal, another famous actress, expects to be arrested. What, you have never heard of Tantoo Cardinal? She was described on Edmonton AM radio as a ‘reasonably well-known Canadian’.

  8. Kortezzi says:

    I’m not surprised Ernie Chambers wants back in the Legislature. I am surprised Brenda Council actually thinks she can win that seat against him.

    C’mon Brenda, Ernie will whip you 3 to 1, easy. She should be able to see that coming.

    Then again, Brenda plays the slots a lot – – which means she doesn’t realize it when the odds are stacked against her.

    USA Today reports that Adrian Smith won’t give out the information on his town halls. Why isn’t Americans for Prosperity hollering over that?

  10. not a rich guy says:

    the story of the day is bruning’s wealth. how did a career politition become a multimillionairre? sounds fishy to me.

  11. Interesting on Terry Haters says:

    Saw Lee Terry on the news again last night–this time for his recognition of folks making a real contribution in the field of the arts. Probably 75,000 folks saw the story.

    Good contrast with the bile offered by the Terry Hater above who posts under multiple names.

    I love how they talk alot–they just can’t get votes for their candidate. lol

  12. Huh says:

    Contrary to what you might think the people that do not like Terry is not one person. There are several. I have actually concluded that the recent Terry media blitz is because he is worried in an election year. If I was a sure fire bet I wouldn’t go out of my way to be seen everywhere. I unlike others do not hate Terry but just hate the job he has done. You realize you can disagree with Terry without having you run to his defense. Differing opinions makes America great

  13. Nelson Ben says:

    Terry Lee, everyone here thinks you are the real Congressman Lee Terry. But you aren’t. Isn’t that so funny? We really have these elephants all twisted around in circles. Someday I hope to write as well as you do. But I imagine you have most of your teeth and are married to nothing closer than a third cousin, so I am at a disadvantage. I was born a Democrat with the cord around my neck, which mom, I mean sis, I mean mom, promised wouldn’t be a problem. And here I am today with the backwards name of a US Senator who outranks your backwards name of a Congressman. And do not even think about writing as Obama Barack or I will get an even bigger backward name to kick your backward name’s butt.

  14. Interesting on Terry Haters says:

    BTW–where’s that target list against Terry that the Hater posted about yesterday? The post that Sweeper called them out on–where’s the list?

    And, “Huh”–after all of your postings and diatribes you have “several” people who don’t like Terry? Wow. Good work. Keep it up. You’re on a roll! lol

    USGS geographic coordinates put the earthquake closest to the town of Cuckoo, VA. If ever a quake was destined to impact goverment, this was it. But the damn thing missed Congress and the White house. Maybe that cuckoo quake is still circling around underground looking for the quickest path to the Unicameral.

    And now Lavon Hiedeman is in a race for Regent:) Bet the University Elite don’t come after the man who holds the purse strings!

  17. Matt Pinkerton-Kleeb says:

    I am switching parties because defending Lee Terry’s voting record is a full time job and I am stretched too thin

  18. Never left the Neb says:

    You must be new at this game if you think Lee Terry is more visible this summer than ever before. It is a constant state of being seen. It is the way he was raised. If you serve the people, then damn it, be accessible to them.

  19. Anonymostly says:

    I think Brad Ashford and Jerry Springer were separated at birth.

    And the Neb Dems have a lot of cash to spend trying to take down John Bruning. Full page ad in the Lincoln paper and, sounds like, another in the Omaha paper. Complaining how wealthy John has become as a public servant. (Unlike Ben Nelson who’s only the 21st wealthiest member of the U.S. Senate.) And we’re still MONTHS away from even knowing who the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate will be (Bruning.)

    Oh, and John cost taxpayers sooo much money buying to execute a convicted killer the State Dems say “should have been executed long ago.” (That was freakin’ hilarious, by the way, reading an ad by the State Dem Party, complaining we haven’t moved quickly enough to execute a prisoner.) Of course, that’s chump change compared to the $200 Million that Ben cost Nebraska taxpayers for his BAD FAITH political shenanigans in trying to circumvent the low-level radio-active waste compact.

    It’s appropriate that the Dem party mascot is a donkey, because these people are a bunch of dumb asses.

  20. Anonymostly says:

    Dang. More proof-reading issues. Hate that. Sentence in 2nd paragraph above should read, “Oh, and John cost taxpayers sooo much money buying [drugs overseas] to execute a convicted killer the State Dems say ‘should have been executed long ago.’”

  21. Anonymostly says:

    I shoulda known you’d already posted that, but you know what they say about great minds.

    And that Ashford/Springer post was several years before I started reading LS (or even knew about it) so it’s something we came up with independently.

    Good on ya, sweeps.

    What’s going to be fun is to see how the Dem, Dick Holland et al, spend money to defend not only Nelson but the other elected D’s. There is the open seat of Sen Howard, and Cornett, and re-elect Nordquist & Mello, Council & Cook. There is a substantial reserve in the Governor’s war chest to keep things quite interesting. Then there is the new district in Sarpy county too work too. Again it will be interesting to see what Dem will suffer the defeat because Nelson sucked up all the oxygen in the donor’s tent:-) Perhaps yet another seat or two will swing to the Republicans side in the Metro area?

    Then again maybe Nelson knows he is tied to Obama and the failed policies of the PoTuS, and he is just doing what he can to spend down the coffers to keep the Gov from dumping $$$$ against the 4 Omaha libs? Who by the way are way to close to the Union Debacle and mayor Shuttle (sp).

    Lots of fodder for Sen/Prof Avery to blather about when defending his precious Unconstitutional campaign finance law.

  23. Terry Lee says:

    Just wanted to give you an update I will be going to lunch in a few. Probably will go with a ham sandwich but most likely I will flip flop on that decipn a few times before actually ordering.

    Stay tuned for more minute by minute updates from my campaign

  24. Interesting on Terry Haters says:

    Glad to see you were able to make a decision on what to eat for lunch. Impressive!

    Interesting that we still haven’t seen the ‘target list that Terry Haters mentioned–probably doesn’t exist.
