It appears that those who screamed the loudest about "civility" are using in the debt ceiling debate some of the same uncivil rhetoric they accused conservatives and the Tea Party of.
Let's start with Stingy Hoyer of Maryland (Michelle Malkin):
“I think we’re playing Russian roulette with the nation’s credit-worthiness. Unfortunately, all the chambers seem to be loaded on the House side. They want to shoot every bullet they have at the president.”
Never mind that Stingy said back in January:
"I think we need to all take cognizance of that and be aware that what we say can, in fact, have consequences."
Then there's "Dingy" Harry Reid, the cowboy poet, who thinks those of us in the Tea Party are not real Americans. Yeah, only union members are, especially when they can be called on a dime on election day to swing the election in Dingy Harry's favor.
Then there's tax cheat and race baiter Charlie Rangel, who calls Republicans "hostage takers" who "don't care about our country."
Nancy Pelosi, who was unnerved by "swastikas" supposedly carried by Tea Party members, said (StoryBalloon.org):
"Budget deficit is an excuse for the Republicans to undermine government, plain and simple. They don’t just want to make cuts, they want to destroy. They want to destroy food safety, clean air, clean water, the Department of Education. They want to destroy your rights."
Seems to me Obamacare and bigger government proposed by liberal Democrats like you is what's destroying our rights, Bella-Pelosi.
Then we have the Alan Grayson in a skirt named Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (aka "Thunderlips"). The racist DNC chair said (Gateway Pundit):
“This is not leadership. This is almost like dictatorship. I know they want to force the outcome that … their extremists would like to impose. But they are getting ready to spark panic and chaos, and they seem to be OK with that. ...They start the day with trying to incite their caucus with, essentially, violent movie clips – pushing their people to inflict pain and hurt people.”Notice that Wasserman-Schultz, who is so concerned about violence and misogyny, has been silent in allegations of Democrat David Wu having sex with a teenager.
Just like we saw two years ago, the fear mongering and uncivil tone has reached a fever pitch, because liberal Democrats know they're losing the debate.
