No, no, no….
I don’t mean that in the way Democrats mean it when they accuse Republicans of questioning their patriotism. She didn’t bring up uncomfortable truths that might lead people to see them in an unpatriotic light. She didn’t insinuate that they were unpatriotic.
She actually came right out and said that they were “very unpatriotic”, a charge that Dems are soooo very sensitive about, themselves, they often verrrry indignantly accuse Republicans of smearing them with it. They are OBSESSED with patriotism, because they know how their actions look to average patriotic Americans.
So now the unhinged crone is accusing Republicans of being unpatriotic…..because they neglected to show up for negotiations earlier in the week.
But according to Democrat, Rep. Paul Kanjorski, they were left out of the negotiations:
Rep. Paul Kanjorski (D-Pa.) on Friday suggested Democratic leaders did not solicit enough input from House Republicans on the financial rescue package…
Asked whether House GOP lawmakers are right to believe they were slighted, Kanjorski replied, “I don’t know that we included them in enough, and that’s always a dangerous thing in politics. Remember, you’re dealing with egomaniacs. We’re all egomaniacs down here.”
Kanjorski, who faces a difficult reelection race, is a key player on the bailout package. He is chairman of the House Financial Services subcommittee on Capital Markets, Insurance, and Government-Sponsored Enterprises.
Kanjorski said, “Now, what we have to do is open that door for the House Republicans, bring them on in and say, ‘Guys, you know, we can’t cast your idea aside.’ Let’s listen to it … I think we have to allow them to talk their idea out. We have to be willing to listen.”
The craven wench is lying through her teeth; accusing Republicans of being unpatriotic for not showing up to negotiations they were purposely left out of.
But not surprising. These are the same tactics they tried in 2004; repeatedly accuse Republicans of questioning their patriotism, while constantly questioning Republican’s patriotism:
Democrats claim that Republicans either have questioned or will question their patriotism in this campaign, but actually the only accusations of lacking patriotism have come from Democrats.
Sen. Bob Graham (Fla.), when he was a candidate, said that Bush’s Iraq policy was “anti-patriotic at the core.” Last September, Kerry said that Bush “lives out a creed of greed for he and his friends” and that it was “unpatriotic” for Bush’s “friends” (i.e., corporate executives) to move jobs offshore. It was a regular staple of retired Gen. Wesley Clark’s campaign to say that Bush’s policies were “not patriotic.”
Howard Dean, when he was a candidate, charged that Ashcroft “is no patriot. He’s a direct descendant of Joseph McCarthy.”
How blind must people be not to see through this?
