Another Massachusetts Moonbat

A very wise and well known religious figure told us "out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks." I find this is a wonderful guide for judging our leaders.

Recently, one of our Congressmen put his brain on hold and spewed forth what was in his heart. John Olver D-Massachusetts described Republicans in this way - "They are nihilists. They are jihadists."

What inspired this vitriol? Here is part of the article from CQ.com:

This year’s appropriations tug-of-war between a new majority in Congress and a president of the opposing party does not appear to be headed for a government shutdown, but a rhetorical taboo was lifted when the word became part of the partisan message of the moment.

“The obvious plan of the Democrats is to not do appropriations bills but put everything together in a giant omnibus appropriations bill in a kind of legislative blackmail with all of the policy and increased spending, to in effect threaten the president to either sign the bill or be accused of shutting down the government,” Sen. Jon Kyl of Arizona, the chairman of the Republican Conference, said Wednesday.

President Bush has threatened to veto seven appropriations bills because together they would exceed his discretionary spending limit by more than $20 billion.

Congressional veterans are certain the two sides are headed for a whopper of a fight over a catchall, omnibus appropriations bill.

Democratic leaders insist, however, that they really want separate bills to pass and that they prefer to avoid an omnibus.

“That is not our intention at all,” said Senate Majority Whip Richard J. Durbin, D-Ill. “If they want to cooperate with us and bring the bills to the floor, we have six or seven bills that have cleared committee. We’re ready to move.”


So, because Republicans won't bend over and take the Democrat koolaid on spending, Olver thinks they are Jihadists? What an ignorant man. Here is his voting record as a Representative. Here's more on his voting record. He's also been a Representative since 1991 - that makes him a poster child for term limits, too!

Here is something else John Olver believes:
He is deeply concerned whether we will actually have an election in Nov. '08, as he believes this administration will likely strike Iran from the air, declare a national emergency, and cancel the '08 elections.
Moonbat, anyone??

It's hard (if not impossible) to feel sorry for a group of people that would keep re-electing Ted Kennedy for 40 years.

To elect an idiot once and re-elect them again is one thing, but to re-elect them over & over again is just stupidity.

I don't feel a bit sorry for them.

Neither do I. If the people of Massachusetts want to remain mired in the legacy of their leaders, and keep such far left, detached representation....fine.
