Senator Whitehouse joins the pro-ObamaCare smearmongers
It never stops (via Jim Hoft):
After explaining why absent GOP members who did not vote for the Department of Defense spending bill was tantamount to a “no” vote, he went on to say that Republicans and their supporters just want to “break” the momentum of President Obama.:
“Voting ‘no’ and hiding from the vote are the same result. Those of us on the floor see it. It was clear the three of them who did not cast their yes votes until all 60 Senate votes had been tallied and it was clear that the result was a foregone conclusion. And why? Why all this discord and discourtesy, all this unprecedented destructive action? All to break the momentum of our new young president.
They are desperate to break this president. They have ardent supporters who are nearly hysterical at the very election of President Barack Obama. The birthers, the fanatics, the people running around in right-wing militia and Aryan support groups, it is unbearable to them that President Barack Obama should exist. That is one powerful reason. It is not the only one.”
He said that during a floor speech yesterday prior to the “historic” 60-40 vote for cloture on ObamaCare. You can watch the video here.
We’ll just add this to the long list of insults and smears thrown at opponents of ObamaCare from the so-called “tolerant” left over the last year, like mobsters, “un-American,” Astroturfers, fascists, terrorists, brownshirts, racists, assassins, and Neanderthals.
Weren’t these the same ones who threw temper tantrums whenever they felt like their patriotism and commitment to the American people were being questioned during the Bush years, who were saying that the tone in Washington, DC needed to “change”?
Just more “change” – in attitude – that you can believe in.
