The FIGHT for The RIGHT!

Why Obama is really “NOBAMA”!

Here is the proof! It comes from the left leaning MSNBC program “The Raw Story” The information shown below is on all three Presidential candidates.

McCain’s lifetime attendance record is fairly solid — he’s missed 11 percent of votes since 1987 — and he’s nowhere near as missing from the Senate as Sen. John Kerry four years ago, when he missed 72 percent of votes in 2003-04 alone, says the New York Times. Clinton has missed 27 percent of Senate votes, while “NObama” missed 37 percent of Senate votes.

It seems the Democratic candiates have missed the most votes by far. One thing that is NOT STATED above is that in McCain’s 31 years in the Senate and only missing 11 percent of the votes for that period, he ran a campaign for President back in 2000 just as he is now. “NObama” who has only been a Senator of 3 years has more than tripled the amount of missed votes in the Senate over John McCain and more than doubled those missed votes of Hillary Clinton.

Maybe “Nobama” looks toward John Kerry, who lost his only bid for the Presidency, as an idol figure?

Does “NObama” only cast votes for the bills HE is interested in or worse, only for those that are not controversial in nature?

Was he too busy traveling or possibly it was more important that he write a book or two!

I think the voters (especially Illinois residents who he allegedly is representing) have a RIGHT to know and that he has an obligation to tell us with specifics!

Obama missed another Vote – To Busy I guess!

Once again our Senator Obama failed to vote on a serious bill before the Senate:

Recent Senate Votes

National Defense Authorization Act, FY2008 – Vote Passed (91-3, 6 Not Voting)

The Senate approved a modified version of the defense authorization bill, which addressed concerns that caused President Bush to unexpectedly veto the original bill last month.

Sen. Richard Durbin voted YES……send e-mail or see bio
Sen. Barack Obama voted Not Voting……send e-mail or see bio


However, by the way the vote turned out, it shows he is not even needed in the Senate. They are so used to him not being there that they do just fine without him.

It is shameful that he puts his own interest ahead of the people of Illinois who he is supposed to be representing AND he is getting paid to do!

I see in the paper his non-associations with Anton Rezko got him donations in an amount near $150,000.00 – pretty good for not having anything to do with the man! He refunded the money or gave it to charity but this has been going on for YEARS!Stay tuned on this one… There must be more to come!

Another Obama missed vote – Maybe we should call him NO-bama!

Maybe we should be calling him NO-bama! Because of his less than impressive voting record in the UNITED STATES SENATE! Here is another VERY IMPORTANT bill that he was not around to vote on.

Consolidated Appropriations, FY2008 – Vote Agreed to (76-17, 1 Present, 6 Not Voting)

The Senate passed H.R. 2764, a 2008 fiscal year omnibus appropriations bill that provides additional war funding.

Sen. Richard Durbin voted YES……send e-mail or see bio
Sen. Barack Obama voted Not Voting……send e-mail or see bio

Even Durbin voted YES on this bill! He must have not gotten through to NO-bama with his instructions on how he wanted NO-bama to vote!


He is making up lame excuses for all the “PRESENT” votes he cast while an Illinois State Senator but neary a word is said about his less than stellar representation of the People of Illinois since he has been The United States Senator from Illinois!

They can make all the excuses for him they want, HE DOES NOT DO HIS JOB. We are payiung his salary to “follow his dream” of becoming President. In addition we are paying for his security and only god knows what else. At the end of November he has raised over $80 Million dollars – he could certainly pay for security but no way, he gives money to other politicians for their campaigns so they will support HIS. Sounds like pimping the issue to me!

February 5th you will do well to VOTE NO-bama!
