Senate majority leader Harry Reid – most recently putting his foot in his mouth for likening Republicans speaking out against socialized healthcare to the backwards slave owners fighting against freeing said slaves – has just managed to get his foot stuffed halfway down his digestive tract. I thought that was anatomically impossible, but he’s just proven me wrong.
He referred to Obama as a “light-skinned” black man with “no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.”
At this point, after all his grandstanding on the healthcare overhaul and the multiple name-calling sessions he’s held to bash Senate Republicans (and Steve will forgive my Japanese here), I’m waiting for the announcement from his doctor that he needs medical leave after he shits his shiny shoe.
This is what’s pointed out in an as-yet-unreleased book called “Game Change” by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin, who documented the 2008 campaign trails and all the gossip that went on. Included are revelations that Bill Clinton is having another affair, Hillary’s staffers were waiting for her to blow up, and Elizabeth Edwards and all of her hubby’s staff knew about his affair LONG before the National Enquirer caught on.
Meanwhile, back on the farm…
Harry Reid has deflected real questions about the healthcare debacle by taking aim at Republicans who refuse to support the legislation, calling them racists in more ways than one (the “slavery” remark was only one that was made). Finally, after the House managed to pass a bill, the two bills – the one passed by the Senate differs greatly from the one passed by the House of Representatives – now need to be patched together and both Senate and House need to vote again. Normally, this goes through committee processes before being whittled down to a final product.
Democrats have circumvented this process and taken the two bills into a backroom hashing session to avoid public scrutiny. In response to questions from the press about Obama’s promises to lead the “most open and transparent administration in history,” Nancy Pelosi laughed, shrugged it off and said…that it was as open as it could be.
I beg your pardon?
I don’t like this legislation to begin with. Not a single conservative in America does. Now, however, we’ve got the President who promised transparency and openness and all of his minions refusing to allow the voters to know what’s going on. When they’re called on it, they’re brushing it aside and telling us that it’s as “open as it can be.” Translation: we promised this reform, but we want to get our foot in the socialist door, so we’re going to do what we can and we expect our liberal shills to support us as loudly as they can.
Most “open and transparent” my Texan ass. Those of you who bagged on Bush for tearing down our rights, look at what’s going on right now and tell me that our guy really attacked our rights. Look at the body scanners being put up in our airports, our senators and representatives forcing bills down our throats that they don’t want us to read until it’s too late, and the accusations that are tossed about by liberals who don’t want conservatives to have a voice. Here at gayconservative.org, we’ve been called racists, bigots, even anti-gay (that one was a hoot), all of it in an effort to shut us up.
In the meantime, the Democrats are driving us right over the socialist cliff.
