Obama Brings Dennis Kucinich On Air Force One For Health Care Speech
By Sam Stein | Huffington Post

Traveling to the Cleveland area to make yet another major speech for passing health care reform into law, President Barack Obama chose as a travel companion one very skeptical lawmaker.

Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) is from the area where Obama is speaking. That would normally make his appearance on Air Force One Monday morning a non-event.

And he has hinted strongly that his vote, which could be the deciding margin, is firmly in the "no" camp.

Nice to see someone honest in representing the public who elect them. But, be careful Dennis; you may get thrown out of the plane. And we will catch you, for a safe return to us. Thanks again for your courage my friend.

I believe in you, Dennis, and KNOW you can't be bought. Thank you for your tireless efforts for "We the People"!

Also, think about running against your lying, corporate-owned travel companion in 2012!!!

We will have to seee.....Kucincih has capitulated to the Democratic whoring machine before.........Still, let us hope Obama's class and imperial whoring, bribery, fails

...and always will be on Dennis's integrity.

I hope you will post the follow up to this.
