Democrats must sit around thinking up new and creative ways to vilify the Republicans and make them look like total ogres.
Today the folks in the White House accused the GOP of wanting to steal Christmas because they won’t agree to raise the debt ceiling long enough for Obama to get re-elected. This, coming from the party that gave us the Christmas Eve Taxpayer Massacre. And no, I’m not referring to Obamacare that got rammed down our throats on Christmas Eve in 2009.
If that wasn’t bad enough, the woman who helped make all of the Democrats’ Christmas surprises possible, Nancy Pelosi, claimed the Democrats are simply trying to save life as we know it from Republicans.
Nancy Pelosi on today’s vote: “What we’re trying to do is save the world from the Republican budget. We’re trying to save life on this planet as we know it today.”
Good grief, what will they come up with next, you know, besides juvenile name calling?
Update: Now Dem. Rep. James Clyburn is comparing raising the debt ceiling to the Emancipation Proclamation. Is that what they were saying in 2006 when they voted against it? What, were they upset that it wasn’t $16 trillion? What about last year? The Democrats could have raised the debt ceiling to $95 trillion if they wanted to. What were they waiting for?
Update 2: It just keeps getting worse. Pelosi is now telling people to “Kiss your Medicare goodbye.” If she has her way, the whole thing will be blow up under the crushing burden of her spending and debt.
Update 3: From the Desk of Lady Liberty linked – thanks!
