Senate hopeful withdraws support of healthcare, trade bills

Rep. Kendrick Meek (D-Fla.) on Wednesday abruptly withdrew his support from a controversial trade bill and legislation to create a single-payer health insurance system.

The decision to remove himself as co-sponsor of the two bills suggests that Meek is moving to the political center. Meek is the clear front-runner for the Democratic nomination for former Sen. Mel Martinez’s (R-Fla.) old seat after Rep. Corrine Brown announced she would not challenge Meek for the Democratic nomination.

So who else is in the race? Or do we have a third party candidate?

Where conservativism is now mainstream Democratic policy.

Can we stop with the fucking "blue dog" shit now? Its everyone. If they aren't conservatizing the Democratic Party more and more they sure as hell don't seem to care where things are going. Obama meant the acceptance of conservative legitimacy. His whole fucking campaign was premised on that.

The abruptness is interesting, isn't it? It's almost like somebody, well, jerked his chain.

And fuck Meek, cowardly sack of shit. He should get no grassroots support if he's not going to fight for single-payer.
