Senator's Thing Exposed in Snowstorm

2/4/2009 12:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Voters won't have to worry about Senator Richard Burr pulling a Tom Daschle. The gentleman from North Carolina pulled away from the Capitol yesterday in a 1974 VW Thing he's owned for 18 years. And here's the thing -- he drove with the top down in the middle of a snowstorm.

The only time Daschle drove himself was during his 1986 campaign video ...

Ooooo Noooo!    

What is with the Obama appointments with corruption charges and tax dodging? Oh, wait, I almost forgot--Obama is a Chicago politician! Can;t wait for all the pork in this so called "stimulus" package to hit the country. It's all a good time until the tax payers have to pony-up for the bill.

How come we never saw a TMZ article ripping the stimulus bill's (now defunct) item that would allow studios to write off 50% of their production costs? 50%?! WTF?!

With each new year having better and better box office receipts, I don't see why we need to line the pockets of the L.A. mafia.

How 'bout some fair and balanced, Harvey?

Hey, it's not just Chicago Dems, don't forget Charlie Rangel Chairman of the House Ways & Means Committee! A September 14, 2008 editorial in The New York Times called for Rangel to resign for cheating on his taxes. But guess what, Charlie's still in charge.

George W. Bush, and his Boss Richard-Head Chaney got us into this mess...Yeah, yeah, you can blame the "Democratic Congress" all you want, but the reality is that the Republicans were in charge regardless, and their president (who STOLE the election anyway...) got us into a WAR we didn't need to enter, that has no end,( and consequently is getting NO press right now...is it over?) and his BIG OIL Industry and Military Industrial Complex Big Wig friends have been sucking $$$ out of the Troff for his entire administration...Now Obama comes in and tries to begin to fix it....IT NOW BECOMES HIS FAULT.....
AS IF that "Old Geezer" and that Alaskan Fool he regrets hiring could do a better job! I'd rather have a NEW CABINET with a few Tax "cheats" than certain other individuals that would risk our children, fathers, brothers, sisters, sons and daughter's lives for a false WAR in a country that has Billions of $$$ worth of oil, but won't even use it to protect themselves......
And IF that OLD GEEZER had won, he'd be putting MORE $$$ into this false war that we're now into forever....How many books by how many individuals from George W's administration have been written telling us this fact?!?!?!?!
but I guess it's ALL the New guy's fault.....Hmph.....

More Congessman need to take a page from this guys book. How many of the hogs at the trough would :

A. Drive themselves
B. Drive themselves in an econmy car that is 30+ years old.


My guess is not many.

Obama is a liar, and he already broken promises he has made, in less than 100 days. Is anybody suprised that ANY politician would keep their campaign promises??

Sorry, no excuses for King Obama. I hope he does a good job, but, he is still a lying, coniving, out for his aganda only politician. No different than any of the last Presidents. Not one bit.

Remember Kennedy was a terrible President, he almost got us nuked, and his morals were in the toilet. The ONLY reason we love him is that he was asassinated. Otherwise name one good reason he WAS a good President.

I stand behind the President , because I have no choice. He has four years to show:

Change we can beleive in. So far, I am not drinking the Kool-aid.
