…Dennis Rehberg, GOP incumbent to the U.S. House, who is pictured here cutting the ribbon this week for a Montana road project near Alzada that is being paid for using with the Recovery Act that Rehberg voted against, calling it “failed spending” and a “boondoggle,” among other things. (Is he…no…grabbing the ribbon cutting scissors from Conrad Burns?)
Yet Rehberg raced to eastern Montana to take credit for a major project there funded by the Recovery Act, something he has done several times before. The project will invest around $8.6 million into the highway and local economy, no thanks to Rehberg. As a spokesman for the Montana Democratic Party said:
Rehberg showing up at this event is the very definition of a poseur and is akin to lying to the people of Montana.
Hmmm… saying one thing and then doing another? I’m pretty sure there’s a word for that. Oh, yeah. There’s an award for it too. Congrats, Denny Rehberg, you’re the Montana Cowgirl Blog’s GOP Hypocrite of the Week.
Though this is the first time we have given Rehberg an award, it is just one small example of Congressman Rehberg stomping on the fingers of rural Montana and our small business economy as he continually climbs the ladder to wealth and power, screaming about his own importance all the way.
UPDATE: It gets worse.
