King Louis XVI: You said it! They stink on ice!

A few of the responses to Representative Vicky Hartzler’s (r) Facebook post on the passing of former Representative Ike Skelton (D):

[….] And likewise you could learn a lot from Ms. Hartzler if you would only wake up and smell the coffee on liberals and the demonrat party!!!

[a response from a commenter to a previous comment]

And that same commenter later continued:

[….] He never once represented me! AND he voted yes on cloture after Ted Cruz’s marathon speech last month. All I ever asked of any elected official — Blunt, McCaskill, Hartzler, or Skelton — is that they vote no on cloture that one time, and Hartzler was the only one who did that.

Almost too stupid to remember to breathe. Ike Skelton (D) left office in January 2011 after 34 years in the House. He was defeated in the 2010 election and replaced by Vicky Hartzler (r). Members of the House do not vote on cloture in the U.S. Senate, since they are not members of the U.S. Senate. In case you were wondering.

Another commenter:

[…] I voted for Ike Skelton for years until he voted for ObamaCare. Sympathy for his family and friends.

As someone pointed out later:

[….]Ike was one of the few democrats who voted against Obamacare. It’s in the congressional record. [….]

Someone else added:

[….] it was a symbolic vote because Ike knew the bill would pass without him. Just politics. Overall, he went hard left when Obama came in office.

The Obamacare opponent added:

He was an Obama follower and that’s why he lost his seat.

Just the facts, right?
