kxs401: Reading every word of every single bill sounds a) impossible and b) like a pointless waste of time.
yakmans_dad: He doesn't read every bill. Nobody could. Why say crap like that?
Fart_Machine: yakmans_dad: He doesn't read every bill. Nobody could. Why say crap like that?Not meant to be a factual statement.
Majick Thise: He's Tea Party most of the time but when it's re-election time suddenly he's all GOP and butthurt no one will give him any moneyJust because you stand on your principles doesn't mean your principles are good or even right and as for .. 'read every single word of every bill' Detroitnews.com must really be a partisan rag if they believe that crap
Headso: he's a teabagger type but he voted a bunch of times with democrats... teabaggers are a weird group in that they have learned the republican party doesn't support them or have middle class interests in mind but they are still influenced by the years of propaganda telling them liberals should be killed so they can't build any coalitions on issues leftists support even though they also support them but for different reasons.
Gulper Eel: Considering the alternative in Michigan is big-government Republican hacks and sleazy-ass Detroit Democrats. he's practically George Washington.
spcMike: I imagine it's a bit like when Bush said he reads 60 books a year.

Rapmaster2000: I'm impressed that he was able to read all 9 million pages of Fartbongocare.[img.photobucket.com image 517x495]
Pichu0102: I'd have a headache after reading all the legalese in bills just after an hour. Why don't we make bills more human readable, with an addendum that if someone finds a loophole because it's not in legalese, tries to be coy, and skirts around the law, they get smacked harder for being dicks?
Mitt Romneys Tax Return: I wouldn't vote for him, but the country would be better off if more Republican politicians were like him.
EricTheHalfABee: I seem to remember reading about a guy, a few years back elected to congress who in fact did read every bill before he voted. I remember that he only voted on about half the bills because it was impossible to read them all and if he didn't read the bill fully, he wouldn't vote. He was a republican and he angered his party by abstaining from an important vote because they rewrote the huge bill around 3 times in the last few days and he couldn't read it. This sounds like the same guy.
yakmans_dad: I have an optimistic suspicion that people can tell if someone is honest.
