“In battle, when you accidentally shoot your own, it’s called friendly fire. When you deliberately shoot your own it’s called fragging. Republicans, stop fragging the American economy and the American people.” – Democrat Jan Schakowsky –
“Any faction in America that would put a gun to the head of 310 million people and say ‘If you don’t do it our way, we will blow your dreams away, we will blow a hole in the American economy.” – Van Jones, Obama Adviser –
“I have to downgrade Charles [ Krauthammer] here. You initially said why don’t Republicans, you know, take the victory. And it’s because there’s a nihilist caucus which is, “Listen, we want to burn the place down." I mean, they’re not, they’ve strapped explosives to the Capitol and they think they are immune from it. The Tea Party caucus wants this crisis, and do we want to do this again six months from now? This whole two-step process is another thing which is they like the drama. They want to do it again.” – Margaret Carlson, Liberal Pundit –
The above quotes are an example of the “new tone” in Washington. It’s ironic…left wingers accusing Republicans and the Tea Party of being terrorists. I wonder if Ms. Carlson has ever heard of Obama friend and mentor Bill Ayers…a man who participated in the bombings of the Capitol building in 1971?
More later. – Lew –
