Congressman Roy Blunt (r – lobbyists) posted a flurry on Twitter about President Obama. Sarah Steelman (r), his probable rival for the republican U.S. Senate nomination in 2010, will post something on Twitter in 5, 4, 3, 2… Or not.

While we wait we can read what “daddy” Blunt had to Twitter:

AP reported Robin Carnahan was with Barack Obama today to celebrate his first 100 days. When did this turn into a campaign event? about 13 hours ago from mobile web

Uh Roy, in case you didn’t notice, Robin Carnahan (D) is the Missouri Secretary of State. It’s a statewide office. One would think that you would be cognizant of that little fact, given that you and your son once occupied the same space.

Who else was in Arnold, Missouri yesterday?:

THE PRESIDENT:…We’ve got one of the finest new governors in the country, Jay Nixon.  (Applause.)  Where did Jay go?  There he is.  An outstanding Secretary of State and somebody who I think may turn out to be pretty good in Washington if she just so decides — Robin Carnahan.  (Applause.)  We’ve got Attorney General Chris Koster here.  (Applause.)  State Treasurer Clint Zweifel.  (Applause.)  A great friend who was with me from the start — Susan Montee, your State Auditor.  (Applause.)  We have our outstanding host today, Mayor Ron Counts, of Arnold.  (Applause.)…

What, no Roy? If President Obama were truly evil he would have had Sarah Steelman up there, too. Heh.

Oh, Roy Blunt’s (r – lobbyists) Twitter madness from yesterday gets even better:

In less than 100 days, the $3 trillion budget Obama sent Congress will result in more national debt than all previous presidents combined. about 13 hours ago from mobile web

Bush Administration Adds $4 Trillion To National Debt

Posted by Mark Knoller

…On the day President Bush took office, the national debt stood at $5.727 trillion. The latest number from the Treasury Department shows the national debt now stands at more than $9.849 trillion. That’s a 71.9 percent increase on Mr. Bush’s watch.

The bailout plan now pending in Congress could add hundreds of billions of dollars to the national debt – though President Bush said this morning he expects that over time, “much if not all” of the bailout money “will be paid back.”

But the government is taking no chances. Buried deep in the hundred pages of bailout legislation is a provision that would raise the statutory ceiling on the national debt to $11.315 trillion. It’ll be the 7th time the debt limit has been raised during this administration. In fact it was just two months ago, on July 30, that President Bush signed the Housing and Economic Recovery Act, which contained a provision raising the debt ceiling to $10.615 trillion

[emphasis added]

That was before the bailout bill went through Congress under dubya’s watch.

Roy Blunt also wrote it at the Springfield, Missouri News-Leader:

…In fewer than 100 days, the $3 trillion budget plan President Obama sent Congress will result in more national debt than all previous presidents combined….

…In fewer than 100 days, the $3 trillion budget plan President Obama sent Congress will result in more national debt than all previous presidents combined…. Where have I read that from Roy before?

I’ll give you this: Roy Blunt (r – lobbyists) is relentless on his fact deficient message.

Who was in the republican leadership in the House while President George W. Bush was on his way to amassing such massive public debt? Just asking. I wonder if it was some Washington insider?
