More drivel from PuffHo...I mean HuffPo (is there a difference?).
Here's a major reason why the Republicans are still a viable party: they don't mind getting loud. They're willing to flagrantly lie out loud, while also making a huge production out of insignificant and contradictory nonsense that heretofore was never even considered to be a political trespass -- shamelessly and unapologetically amplifying it all to a level of noise that forces the press and voters alike to pay attention.
Really? This from the party that pays people to disrupt speakers they disagreee with? The party that just lied about whose policies won the war in Iraq? Seriously.
Elsewhere, Rep. Eric Cantor released a statement about the president's invitation to the Republicans to attend a televised health care summit later this month. The statement lead off with the words "government takeover." So right there, when greeted with an outreached hand, Cantor insulted the reform bill by referencing Frank Luntz's completely exaggerated "government takeover" line.
Again...really? The stated objective of The Chosen One is Single-Payer. We have seen so much Leftist incrementalism over the last 50 years, it is reasonable to believe the innocuous-sounding "Health Care Reform Bill" is another.
John Boehner, meanwhile, held a press conference in which he discussed the president's bipartisan outreach. And at one point Boehner used the epithet "Democrat majority." Out loud and on television, Boehner used a pejorative term for the Democratic Party designed to emphasize the "rat" syllable. I'm actually shocked he didn't accidentally refer to the president as "Osama."
Wow...they really believe that? The "Democrat Party" term is used to indicate that there is nothing democratic about it. Toe the line or else. The only "rat" inference is in their small minds. And "epithet"? Dude, "Teabagger" is an epithet, not "democrat"...In fact, you guys have referred to yourselves for decades as "Democrats".
There's more, but I just can't sullie these pages with the amazing BS coming from PuffHo.
Suffice it to say, if they want to get loud and fearless, "bring it".
