Yesterday, Mike Arcuri admitted to an audience of Democrats that he didn't bother to read the pro-torture law before he announced that he supports it.
Yes, you're reading that correctly. Michael Arcuri told everybody last week that he supports HR 6166, the Republican law that will...
... but when Michael Arcuri made that announcement at last week's debate, he hadn't even bothered to read the bill!
What's more, a week has gone by now since the text of the legislation was available, and Michael Arcuri still hasn't read it!
You want a congressman who doesn't bother reading a law before he votes on it? Then Michael Arcuri is your man.
Michael Arcuri came to that meeting and promised that he would not be a rubber stamp for George W. Bush. But what's the reality?
The reality is that Michael Arcuri was told to support HR 6166, and he did what he was told, without asking questions, without reading what he was being asked to sign onto.
That's the definition of a rubber stamp.
The worst thing of all: If elected to Congress, Michael Arcuri won't be a rubber stamp for the Democrats. Michael Arcuri will be a rubber stamp for George W. Bush and the Republican Party.
Why doesn't Michael Arcuri just cut to the chase and switch his party affiliation to Republican now, and be honest about it?
