I knew John Conyers (D) was what he is. I was surprised (mildly) at his comments. I am saddened that he isn’t the only one – there’s scumsuckers like this all through our government in both parties. Thanks American Thinker for catching this one.
“This is the first time that I can remember being confronted by members of the Congress, my colleagues, who say, ‘I don’t care if I get reelected or not, I want to cut the budget by $100 billion or whatever,'” said a bewildered Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.), who was first elected to Congress in 1964. “I’ve never seen that kind of a member before. … It’s a dangerous point of view from my perspective.”
Yeah, it’s awful dangerous to run into people who do the right thing. And this idea of not doing whatever it takes to get re-elected? Why, that’s just crazy talk.
As Conyers makes clear, this is a concept completely alien to Democrats.
Way to go, Conyers, you ass. You have illustrated, better than even the most eloquently gifted Tea Party member could, just what is totally broken in the system. An utterly complete lack of morality or sense of honor.
I’m loving Fark for the text in this link. “One in four Americans don’t know that July 4th is the day we celebrate the anniversary of our independence from France”
Problem with e:mail and writing letters when you are angry in general is that once you put it down on paper, it’s no longer something you have plausible deniability over.
