DEMOCRATIC DESPERATION FUELS OUTRAGEOUS RHETORIC

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.

    Well yes, but this is the party that made birth control free in their healthcare law, knowing full well that religious organizations would object. They did this so they could then scream “War on Women!” If they cared in the slightest about the health of the American people, they might have made diabetes supplies free, or how about free blood pressure medication, two conditions that are much more prevalent for the poor and have very high costs. But no, it was birth control, a cheap product that is already readily available free at clinics all over the U.S. Everything that Obama does is political, and by requiring free birth control, his party quite neatly turned a non-issue into a campaign rallying cry. They are the most callously cynical politicians we have ever produced.

    …and Dems have the gall to label conservatives “haters!”

    Birth control and abortion are the commitment of Democrats to hedonism and the rejection of traditional religious costraints on sexual behavior. They are intentionally appealing to voters who “feel” (mostly sexually) rather than think, who want instant gratification rather than self control. What realy scares those people about the prospect of a Mormon president is that government would expect from everyone the kind of moral self-discipline that Mormons teach and live.

    Michael, you need to talk to your wife about a thing called Projection. The president is accusing the republicans in congress of deliberately creating a defunct system to discredit the system because he has been unwilling to compromise and so make progress with republicans for exactly that reason; to make it look like they are to blame for Washington’s Dysfunction.

    I would add Nancy Pelosi’s comment:
    “It would be very important for Democrats to retain control of the Senate. Civilization as we know it today would be in jeopardy if the Republicans win the Senate. It’s really important,” she said on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher. 9/15/2014
