Arrogant US Senator Sheldon Whitehouse(D-RI) in angry diatribe called opponents of Senate Health Care Reform racists on the Senate floor. Sen. Whitehouse used editorial major lame stream media as examples.
“Let’s Look At What Current Observers Are Saying As A Possible Early Indicator Of The Judgment History Will Inflict. Recently, The Editor Of The Manchester Journal Inquirer Editorial Page Wrote Of The Current G.O.P. Which He Called ‘This Once Great And Now Mostly Shameful Party,’ That ‘It Has Gone Crazy, Is More And More Dominated By The Lunatic Fringe And Has Poisoned Itself With Hate.’ He Concluded, ‘They No Longer Want To Govern. They Want To Emote.’ A Well Regarded Philadelphia Columnist Recently Wrote Of The Conservative Paranoia And Lunacy On The Republican Right.”
The Whitehouse continue on his half-cocked dissertation accusing Republicans who did not the Department of Defense appropriations bill as tantamount voting no and trying to stop President Obama’ momentum.
“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.”
When a Washington Post Reporter Kerry Picket confronted Sen. Whitehouse he denied called Republican senators racist. But he stood by his statement attacking the GOP.
Picket asked Senator Whitehouse what he meant by “aryan” he responded “No, I didn’t say that….again, pay attention to the speech.”
What is it with these Democrats? It seems as if they have lost their natural minds? Who elected these people? I wonder the mindset these people. Was ACORN involved in getting these people elected? One wonders?!?!?!?!?!
