You know that Democrats must be getting desperate when they resort to name-calling. This is exactly what we've seen this week from liberal leaders in Washington.
Let's start with Crazy Uncle Joe. He's been remarkably silent on the issue of Syria. Then again, the pedestal of incompetence and gaffes has been assumed by John Kerry and Barack Obama when it comes to Syria. But anyway, Biden thew a reception in his home yesterday to mark the passage of the Violence Against Women Act. Speaking on the issue of Republican resistance, Biden referred to conservatives as “neanderthals.” Here's the quote in context, courtesy of the Weekly Standard:
"'I think I understand the Senate better than any man or women who's ever served in there, and I think I understand the House ... I was surprised this last time ... The idea we still had to fight? We had to fight to reauthorize?'
Biden blamed 'this sort of Neanderthal crowd' in the House for stalling the legislation.”
Then we have Harry Reid. He is upset that Tea Partiers are obstructing progress on an energy efficiency bill by offering amendments on ObamaCare. I find it laughable that he is so upset that this bill is being “diverted totally” from what it is about – As if that weren't the case in Washington with every bill. He goes on to lament that this is the case because “the anarchists have taken over … People who don’t believe in government — and that’s what the Tea Party is all about — are winning, and that’s a shame.”
Liberals must be incredibly dumb if they cannot understand that limited government is not the same as no government. Tea Partiers believe in government, they just don't want to see it perverted to be something that it was not originally intended to be. The Constitution outlines specifically the role of the federal government, and yet decades of progressive policies have made a mockery of this. It doesn't mean that no government should exist, but that government should exist in the form it was originally intended as outlined by the Constitution. But I guess I wouldn't expect Democrats to understand that, seeing as they generally view the Constitution as nothing more than a speed bump for the implementation of their liberal, utopian ideals.
