As elections approach, the president and other desperate Democrats have resorted to outrageous rhetoric in a last ditch effort to demonize the opposition.
J.T. Smith, a Congressional nominee in Alabama, shamelessly tweeted: “Actions of Republicans in congress are worse than #ISIL.” Really? John Boehner and Mitch McConnell are guilty of video-taped beheadings and mass murders?
Meanwhile the president himself called Congressional Republicans “the most ideologically rigid, most unproductive, most cynical group that I have ever seen.” At a fundraising dinner in Purchase, New York, he derided the GOP’s “cynical genius” in deliberately imposing “broken” government to make the public “cynical about government and its possibilities of doing good for everybody.”
Politicos normally accuse their rivals of incompetence, corruption or bad judgment, but it’s irresponsible to claim the other side wants to hurt people and damage the country out of ideological malice.
