Burris denied seat in US Senate to succeed Obama

WASHINGTON (AP) – Roland Burris announced Tuesday he was rejected for Barack Obama’s Senate seat, in a bizarre rainy-day scene on the Capitol grounds as lawmakers awaited the gaveling of the 111th Congress into session.

Standing amid a huge throng of reporters and television cameras in a cold and steady rain, Burris, 71, declared that he had been informed that “my credentials are not in order and will not be accepted.”

The former Illinois attorney general said he was “not seeking to have any type of confrontation” over taking the seat that he was appointed to by embattled Gov. Rod Blagojevich. But Burris also said he was looking at options for taking the seat.

It was a spectacular demonstration of political gridlock at a time when the Democratic-controlled Congress has been eagerly awaiting Obama’s inauguration while nervously anticipating tense work on a much-discussed stimulus program to steady the faltering economy.

I can’t wait to hear the libber left and their cries of *RACISM*, you know that some of them want to. But wait! It’s not the Republicans or the hated Conservatives that are stopping Burris from taking his seat in the U.S. Senate, it’s the Democrats.

Yeah, I know! Those Democrats, liberal and progressive Democrats. Can you imagine? They actually grew a set and are standing up for what’s right for a change. I hope this doesn’t disrupt the whole Earth, Space and Time Continuum thing!

This isn’t about Roland Burris, and most folks DO realize that. It’s about his appointment being made by a man that is thought by many to be THE most disgusting and corrupt politician in America today, one Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

This isn’t about RACE either, it’s about right and wrong. But I’d be willing to bet serious money that there will be many screaming that Roland Burris wasn’t seated simply because he is a Black man! In fact, I would count on it!

For those of you that are too young to remember the folly of the Jimmy Carter administration, pay attention, pay close attention. This Democratic Congress and Senate, coupled with the imminent swearing in of president elect Barack Hussein Obama, they collectively will make Jimmy Carter look a lot better than even the current Moron in Chief has done.
