Duane Lester notes that William Yoemans at Politico has, apparently managed to place his head quite far up his own arse!
Regarding the Tea Party’s desire to have a balanced budget amendment, or even cuts that will not take place a decade from now, Yeomans has decided that is enough to qualify conservative activists as “full blown terrorists.”
It has become commonplace to call the tea party faction in the House “hostage takers.” But they have now become full-blown terrorists.They have joined the villains of American history who have been sufficiently craven to inflict massive harm on innocent victims to achieve their political goals. A strong America has always stood firm in the face of terrorism. That tradition is in jeopardy, as Congress and President Barack careen toward an uncertain outcome in the tea party- manufactured debt crisis.
Well, what can I say here? Clearly Yeomans hasn’t the foggiest idea what a terrorist actually is. He might not even have an idea what a coherent thought is either. It is pathetic that this person thinks it OK to demonize patriotic Americans in the worst possible way.
Perhaps someone could explain to Yeomans that the President has REFUSED to work with House Republicans. The Tea Party has not promised to veto every proposal that John Boehner has offered up. The Tea Party has not spent money it did not even have. The Tea Party merely has pointed out the looming fiscal crisis and fought to change course. For that they deserve gratitude, not scorn!
