Well we have a living breathing example of that idiot right in the House of Representatives. His name appropriately is Weiner. Anthony Weiner from New York is the consummate loser who always wanted to get noticed and consequently talked a lot of talk he could never walk the walk on. With the anniversary of the Unconstitutional Health “INSURANCE” law looming Weiner has decided he is the little 12-year-old who is going to beat up the 16-year-old who is twice his side. And after reading what the Democrats lap-dog Dana Milbank wrote for the Washington Post today you will see he is also the kid who forgets to bring backup. No strike that. He is the kid who nobody will help because he talked bad about them too. Here is Milbank’s deluded article from the Post today.
Rep. Weiner sinks meat hooks into health-care law’s attackers
By Dana Milbank, Wednesday, March 23, 6:56 PM
Democrats would be better off if more of them acted like Weiners.
As the first anniversary of the health-care law approached this week, many Democratic lawmakers went to ground, leaving unanswered Republican accusations that the legislation is socialist, unconstitutional, bankrupting the country, destroying the medical system and generally bringing about the apocalypse. But not Anthony Weiner.
The New York congressman, a Brooklyn-born street fighter, held six events Wednesday to defend the law. His message was, predictably, a collection of snappy comebacks to Republican accusations. But he also delivered a call to arms to his Democratic colleagues, who have been passive to the point of wimpy as Republicans press for repeal.
“If Democrats believe it’s going to go away, they’re wrong,” the fast-talking Weiner said. “I don’t represent the hide-under-the-desk wing of the Democratic Party. I believe we’ve got to lean into this fight.”
Nancy Pelosi, he said, has been “inartful.” President Obama, he said, hasn’t provided “air cover” for Democrats in Congress. The White House “hasn’t done a very good job” confronting critics. The administration needs to make its case “more forcefully.” And his colleagues are limp, Weiner said: “We have to stop cowering.”
Weiner, certainly, doesn’t cower. The liberal Democrat who aspires to be mayor of New York often earns his surname with his partisan rants on the House floor, his campaigns against Clarence Thomas and Glenn Beck, and his opposition to Obama’s tax-cut deal last year.
In general, neither Democrats nor Republicans lack for hotheads. But in this case, Weiner’s brand of politics has some merit. As Republicans push daily to undermine the new law, the Democrats play under Marquess of Queensberry rules, answering the opposition’s often-scurrilous allegations with earnest pleas not to “relitigate” the past. In wishing away the fight, they are losing it.
Many Democrats and Obama administration officials observed Wednesday’s anniversary with events touting the value of the health-care law. But “it’s not enough just to say, ‘Here’s this great bill,’ ” Weiner countered. “We haven’t done a particularly skillful job in the last year of rebutting some of the basic thrusts of the Republican opposition to the bill.”
The congressman offered a few examples, employing the sort of rhetoric used to wage an argument in a schoolyard. Big government takeover? “No.” Transformation of the economy? “It wasn’t.” Socialism? “Polar opposite.” Raiding Medicare? “Nonsensical.” Burdens on small business. “None.” The individual mandate? “Ain’t a big deal.” Even the administration’s liberal granting of waivers didn’t indicate flaws in the law, but flexibility; in fact, he said, he might seek one for New York City.
Along the way, Weiner dismissed the Supreme Court, which he expects will rule the law unconstitutional, as “a corporate-dominated wing of the Republican Party.” He disparaged the Congressional Budget Office as “propeller-heads,” and he accused GOP presidential candidates of “overtly lying.” Even White House officials Jack Lew and Gene Sperling made Weiner boil because they lack “a competing narrative” in the budget debate.
But more damning was Weiner’s roast of his own colleagues. “There’s a lot of people who just want the debate to go away, who got roughed up with ads and yelling at the town hall meetings,” he said. But “most Americans, whatever your party, value the idea of standing up for the things you believe in.”
That’s easy for Weiner to say, coming from a safe district. And Democratic leaders have made many of his colleagues believe that the value of the legislation would become self-evident after it passed. But that didn’t happen. A Kaiser Family Foundation poll finds that, by 46 percent to 42 percent, Americans have an unfavorable view of the legislation, unimproved from last year. “When you’re in that kind of a 50-50 situation,” Weiner said, “most elected officials say . . . ‘Let someone else handle the debate.’ ”
That someone so far has been the pugnacious New Yorker, who originally favored a single-payer system. On Wednesday alone, he made his case in chats on Twitter (he mentioned his “Jew fro” and corresponded with somebody nicknamed “sassbutt”), Facebook, Daily Kos and Reddit, as well as in a teleconference with reporters and a speech to the liberal Center for American Progress.
At American Progress, former administration official Neera Tanden introduced Weiner by confessing that “on this anniversary, there are those who are a little weary from the attacks.”
Weiner’s wisdom: Live with it. “There are some people who are cringing every time health care comes up,” he said. “It’s not going to get any better. We’re going to have this discussion whether you want it or not.”
It doesn’t happen often, but this is one time when Democrats should follow Weiner.
Right off the bat, he insults the rest of his party as a bunch of wimps. Now I was not the biggest kid growing up. And I had my share of fights. But I always made sure my friends knew I had their back and they had mine. If I had a beef with a friend I would not take it to my other friends I would take it to that person. Weiner on the other hand likes to blast his opinion to hell with the consequences. Calling your party a bunch of wimps is not a wise idea. He attacks party leadership and names, names. Pelosi and The White House? Even the President is not safe from this little man who wants to be the lion that roared.
Now on to the rest of this silly article about a stupid man by Dana Milbank. The piece touches on Weiner’s attacks (Milbank calls them campaigns) Against Glenn Beck and Clarence Thomas. Beck is a TV host so he seems to be fair game. Plus Beck can retaliate on his show although I don’t think that Glenn has mentioned Weiner in a while. He was pretty much amused by him when he did mention him though. But Clarence Thomas? A sitting Supreme Court justice? Who has no real options to respond to this maniacal spin masters lies. Milbank of course wet his pants just thinking about it. Thomas to his credit could easily make Weiner look foolish without once yelling.
I need to attack one particular paragraph one comment at a time. Here we go it begins this way:
The congressman offered a few examples, employing the sort of rhetoric used to wage an argument in a schoolyard.
Big government takeover? “No.” Mandating the citizens to buy insurance? Yes it is!
Transformation of the economy? “It wasn’t. So many companies can not afford it they got waivers!
” Socialism? “Polar opposite. Back to the Mandate. That one thing is socialist any doubt in your mind?
” Raiding Medicare? “Nonsensical. Really? Explain the money drain and double spending that just won’t work.
” Burdens on small business. “None. How about an increase over 30% on some Health Insurance due to mandates in the law.
” The individual mandate? “Ain’t a big deal.” It sure is just ask two federal judges. It is Unconstitutional
Even the administration’s liberal granting of waivers didn’t indicate flaws in the law, but flexibility; in fact, he said, he might seek one for New York City.
I won’t even answer that last line the first few took care of that.
This blowhard even went after the entire Supreme court calling them corporate-dominated? Huh? The same court that could go either way on any case? With a clear 4 and 4 with one who vacillates. Then he railed against the CBO. Do you think he felt that way when the CBO issued its numbers before the vote on National Health Insurance? Hell no this extremely hypocritical whack job was pleased as punch to hear those numbers and voted yes so fast your head would spin.
In summary Anthony Weiner is the lowest form of person. A man who would throw everybody but himself into the line of fire to get what he wants. And Dana Milbank once again shows just how amoral he is for even writing positively about this hack. Weiner cares about Weiner and no one else. Nobody should be following him as Milbank suggested. Because when the poop hits the fan Weiner will use his followers as a shield. Just read the article. It says it all.
Oh and as for the opening sentence. Most Democrats do act like Weiners!
