White House Compares Calls for Spending Restraint to Kidnapping, Arson

Posted: September 28, 2013 at 5:15 am   /   by

If you’re a top Democrat in Washington, first you say you “won’t negotiate” to address these challenges, then you angrily lash out at others for trying to do so.

Some recent examples include a senior White House adviser comparing House Republicans to “suicide bombers, kidnappers and arsonists” in an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper. The Senate Majority Leader said Republicans are “fanatics” and he won’t bow to GOP “anarchists.” The House Minority Leader called Republicans, “legislative arsonists.”

Then of course there’s former President Clinton, who thinks food stamp cuts in a bill that doesn’t have food stamp cuts are “chilling” and “spiteful.” Former VP Gore called the GOP “political terroris[ts].”

And despite President Obama’s “oft-stated call for civility,” even he’s “slamm[ed],” “taunted… and ridiculed” Republicans in what have been called “ill-timed” and “odd” speeches.

At a rally yesterday, the president also attacked the GOP “for trying to delay ObamaCare” … literally minutes before his administration announced it was delaying another part of ObamaCare.

Keep all of this in mind over the next few days.

Republicans are trying to work in a bipartisan way to address Washington’s spending problem and strengthen our economy, and give all Americans the same protection from ObamaCare the president has given big businesses.

Meanwhile, top Democrats say “[t]here’s no need for conversations” with “people with a bomb strapped to their chest” (another one of their euphemisms for Republicans, by the way).

It’s pretty clear who’s serious about addressing America’s challenges and who isn’t.
