Waxman: Not supporting Obama’s agenda means you are “against America”
Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.), who has had an eventful couple of weeks to say the least, believes House Republican opposition to climate change legislation and the stimulus indicates they’re cheering against the good ol’ US of A.
“It appears that the Republican Party leadership in the Congress has made a decision that they want to deny President Obama success, which means, in my mind, they are rooting against the country, as well,” the powerful House Energy and Commerce Committee chairman told WAMU radio host Diane Rehm on Tuesday morning, promoting his new book, “The Waxman Report.”
This is just one more in a growing list of examplex of how the oft-used (during the Bush administration) phrase “dissent is patriotic” flew out the window the moment candidate Obama was elected President. This has become a pattern with Waxman, who uttered similar remarks at the end of last month as well over the debate on ObamaCare.
I guess he, and others – like Kruggie – continue to “choose hope over fear.” Er – or something like that.
