Let's just give you three candidates and let you choose, shall we? Vote in the comments thread if you please?
CANDIDATE NUMBER ONE: Richard Lugar, current Senator and claiming the Republican Party as his brand, although he has been dubbed "Obama's Favorite Republican" even before helping prepare the then-candidate for the Democratic Party to debate John McCain before the 2008 election.
But this time it isn't about Lugar's confusion about which party he belongs with, but rather what country he wants to help out. You see, right now Americans need jobs. Lugar's opponent, Richard Mourdock, has campaign shirts and they are naturally made right here in the good old USA. But how about Lugar's shirts? A little birdie pointed me to a post on Politico:
Lugar's T-shirts: Made in El Salvador - David Catanese. Linked post below:

CANDIDATE NUMBER TWO: Barack Obama. Now for our second of three worthy candidates for HOM, Barack Obama, the President of the United States who has spent more than any President in history, thrown more "stimulus money" at cronies than you can count and whose administration has done as much as possible to cripple energy production in the United States and make life hard for businesses. He wants to take over the health care system and even wants the government to tell you what light bulbs to buy? The guy who is choking the economy with both hands was quoted in AP like this:
You know anyone who could affored to pay $38,500 a couple to listen to some guy whining about the milk he himself has spilled? This blogger deals with businesses around North America, many of them with headquarters in a foreign country. I know for a fact that businesses are afraid to invest in America because of Obama's energy-and-business hindering policies as enforced by agencies like the FDA and the EPA and by executive orders. Look at what the deficit and unemployment rate was when BO was elected and compare those numbers to now. You might be astounded at how much damage he has done so fast. You cannot accuse Republicans of "crippling America", Mr. President, when you are absolutely expert at it yourself. No matter how hard the Associated Propaganda, er, I mean Press spins stories to make you look better!
But we have to give him one more part to today's entry because of his possibly illegal connections and actions associated with: "Obama changes law so his donors, CA Dems get Solyndra $ before taxpayers
Posted on September 26, 2011 by Donald Ferguson.
President Barack Obama raised eyebrows when he exempted the now-bankrupt and FBI-raided Solyndra solar experiment from a federal law requiring taxpayers be placed ahead of private creditors when a federally-funded corporation goes bankrupt.
Now we may be finding out why.
“Out of the hundreds of out-of-work employees, vendors, investors and other creditors in the bankruptcy of government-backed solar-panel maker Solyndra LLC, one name stands out: the California Democratic Party…One investor, Argonaut Private Equity, is tied to George Kaiser, Oklahoma billionaire and fundraiser for Mr. Obama’s 2008 campaign,” The Washington Times reports this morning.
Solyndra will not reveal how much cash the California Democrat Party may be receiving. The Party claims to know nothing about the deal.
Solyndra received over a half-billion dollars of taxpayer money from the Obama administration after the Bush administration refused to give the cash.
“Just two years ago, the company received federal loan guarantees of more than $500 million, money it burned through but hasn’t repaid. Because of a subsequent loan restructuring, taxpayers won’t be repaid before the private investors who poured $75 million into the company earlier this year as it tried to stay afloat,” the Times reports.
Obama made Solyndra the centerpiece of his failed “green jobs” political campaign, and the partnership may have paid off handsomely. “This announcement today is part of the unprecedented investment this administration is making in renewable energy and exactly what the Recovery Act is all about,” the Obama administration announced when making the handout.
While taxpayers are stuck with a half-billion dollars in lost cash while Obama donors and California Democrats are first in line for repayment, federally-funded Solyndra donated $7,500.00 to the California Democrat Party and $1,000.00 to three California Assembly Democrat candidates.
“Solyndra employees have donated more than $20,000 to federal lawmakers over the years, most of it going to Democrats. A breakdown of donations by the Center for Responsive Politics shows 72 percent went to Democrats, 27 percent to Republicans and 1 percent to Libertarian candidates,” the Times reports.
When questioned how the Obama-connected firm managed to get a half-billion dollars in taxpayer money the company’s predicted bankruptcy prevented it from getting most private loans, Solyndra executives exercised their right to avoid implicating themselves in a crime.
“In the wake of the company’s collapse and subsequent raid by the FBI this month, Solyndra’s top two executives, citing their Fifth Amendment rights [against implicating themselves in a criminal matter,] refused to testify last week before the House Energy and Commerce investigations subcommittee, which has been looking at the Solyndra loan deal for months,” the Times reports."
When you hear Barack Obama say "reforms", he means socialism, blocking energy sources, ruining businesses and handing off taxpayer's money to supporters and contributors to his campaign. He did bring Change, but Hope? Not so much...
Anyway, could there possibly be any candidate worthy of being mentioned with these two incredible hypocrites? Yes, actually:
CANDIDATE NUMBER THREE: The Lake County Democratic Party aka I am shocked, shocked, that there is corruption in the Democrat party!
"Time to Change the Culture of Corruption
Lake County has seen at least fifty democratic public officials convicted of some form of public corruption since 2000. For those of you who don’t remember the names, here are a few: George Pabey, Bob Cantrell, Frankie Kollintzas, Robert Pastrick, James Fife, Jewell Harris Sr., Katie Hall, Will Smith Jr., Dozier Allen, Jojuanna Meeks, Peter Manous, and Kevin Pastrick. Now we have our current Coroner, Thomas Philpot, charged with theft for the time he was County Clerk!
How much longer are we going to stand by and let these people fool us? The Democratic Chairman said last year, "I'm two decades younger than these guys. We're all embarrassed by the reputation Lake County has. But I'm not part of it. I just happen to live here.” Really? You aren’t part of the problem? Isn’t it your party that keeps sending a message out to “Punch 10” no matter who is on the ballot to try to ensure that democrats, even if they are charged with a crime like Carol Ann Seaton last year, still get elected? Aren’t you the one that went downstate and hired lobbyists to stop the funding of Operations and Maintenance of the Little Calumet River Commission so your pal democratic surveyor George Van Til and you could cook up a new scheme for your friends and family plan? You Mr. Chairman are good friends with Mr. Woerpel who is the Hammond Democratic Chairman and was caught growing pot in his home. You are also good friends of Mr. Philpot who was just indicted! Excuse me sir, but you are part of the problem. You are the reason why the rest of the state doesn’t respect us. This culture of corruption must stop!
Indiana is ranked 5th in the Top States for Doing Business Survey. However, out of the top 50 public corporations in Indiana only one is located in Lake County. The democratic chairman had this to say concerning that one, NIPSCO, “Somebody has to stand up to this company…. NIPSCO’s done nothing to help me.” Do you mean NIPSCO hasn’t lined your pockets?
As the Republican Chairman in Lake County, I have given voters of Lake County a choice this Election Day. We have attracted many good, honest people to run for mayor and council positions this fall. You can “Punch 10” like you are told by the weavers and continue to pretend the emperor is wearing beautiful clothes or you can vote for honest people who want to be public servants and turn this culture of corruption into a culture of respect and prosperity."
Well, there you go! Which candidate makes the Hypocrite of the Month?
