POTUS mocked the peanut earmark Sanford Bishop got put in the War supplemental.
“I like peanuts just as much as the next guy,” the president said Saturday, “but I believe the security of our troops should come before the security of our peanut crop.”
It’s not pork,“ Bishop said Wednesday from his Columbus office. ”It’s no different from any other supplemental appropriation bill that has been passed in the last six years under the Republican Congress.
“Every dime, every dollar, every penny he asked for is included in that bill,” Bishop said. “What the president does not like is he is being asked to be accountable. We’ve been writing blank checks for four years.”
Actually Congressman, what we don’t like is you had to be bribed to vote for the bill.
