Chris Murphy wants a promotion. But promoting Chris Murphy would be akin to promoting an employee who shows up late for work, hangs out at the water-cooler while his team members are in conference, takes an extended three-martini lunch, and leaves early. That, in capsule, is Murphy's record of participation in Congress. We could get an empty chair to do that—the Obama model. But it's far worse than that. Murphy does show up for scheduled votes, just as directed by Nancy Pelosi. He voted for the $800 billion "stimulus" of non-existent "shovel-ready" jobs, cap and trade (which would have raised per family energy costs by $4,000 per year by 2032), cash for clunkers (that took perfectly good cars off the road at a cost to taxpayers of $75,00 each), Obamacare (that will bankrupt us while stealing $716 billion from Medicare), "card check" (which takes away the secret ballot in union organizing elections), Dodd-Frank (that places excessive and poorly crafted regulations on the financial sector). while supporting billions in crony capitalist grants to major Obama campaign donors in the "green" energy business, all of which went belly-up. A promotion? No way! He's awful at the job he has now.
