Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) calls Republicans "dead-beat debtors" among other things during a Democratic press conference on Wednesday morning.
"The debate and fight is not between Democrats and Republicans. It's between some Republicans and their sort of cult fringe as I refer to them out there," Harkin said.
"Democrats are willing to do whatever is necessary to raise the debt ceiling, not for future borrowing but to pay the debts that we racked up in the past. Which, mostly was racked up by a Republican House, a Republican Senate and a Republican President in the last 8 years. Yet, they're not willing to pay the bills," Harkin said.
Hey Tom, who has run up more debt in the last two years than any previous President? You helped him out, voting for things like Obamacare and the phony stimulus that added TRILLIONS to the debt...all under the Democrat's watch.
Facts are inconvenient things, because back in 2006, Harkin, Obama, and every Senate Democrat voted against the increase of the debt ceiling. Since liberals are addicted to our wallets, keeping them from more of our money is like taking booze away from a drunk. So they act irrational and attack, or give campaign speeches at memorial services (5:45 in video/audio).
Harkin is as phony as his claims he fought MIG fighter jets in Vietnam, hence the "phony fighter jock" headline. (Instapundit via Michelle Malkin).
Harkin even went with John "Lurch" Kerry to Central America and proped up Marxist dictator Manuel Ortega in 1985.
You wanna talk about "fringe," Tom?
