It’s Official: Dems Declare War on Teapartiers (aka Right Wing Extremists)
Fox News is now reporting the Dems are coming after us, fellow 912er’s and tea party participants. According to Fox:
Senate Democrats, seeking to breathe new life into their 2010 electoral prospects after their shocking loss in Massachusetts last week, are unveiling a new war strategy: divide and conquer the GOP.
The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee passed out a memo Tuesday advising Democratic campaign managers to define their Republican opponents early and to highlight the differences between moderate voters and tea party-style conservatives.
“Given the pressure Republican candidates feel from the extreme right in their party, there is a critical — yet time-sensitive — opportunity for Democratic candidates,” the DSCC wrote in the memo, which was obtained by FoxNews.com. “We have a finite window when Republican candidates will feel susceptible to the extremists in their party. Given the urgent nature of this dynamic, we suggest an aggressive effort to get your opponents on the record.”
The memo encourages Democratic candidates to compel their opponents to answer a series of questions on issues that have helped boost the tea party movement and reveal cracks in GOP unity, including health care, taxes and President Obama’s citizenship and ideology.
It goes on to list some of the questions:
“Do you believe that Barack Obama is a U.S. citizen? Do you think the 10th Amendment bars Congress from issuing regulations like minimum health care coverage standards? Do you think programs like Social Security and Medicare represent socialism and should never have been created in the first place? Do you think President Obama is a socialist? Do you think America should return to a gold standard?”
I have a few questions for them:
Do you believe in the Constitution of the United States of America?
Have you personally read the Constitution of the United States of America?
Since you took an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America, can you tell us when exactly you plan to start doing that? Of course if you haven’t memorized the Constitution yet, can you tell me what makes you qualified to hold the job you do?
Exactly where in the Constitution of the United States of America does it say you can abuse your power by attempting to ram so called “reforms” down the throat of citizens who do not want any part of them?
Exactly where in the Constitution does it say you are entitled to luxury health care and entitlement programs not available to and paid for by hard working citizens of this country?
Exactly where in the Constitution does it call for Executive Orders? Bills to be “negotiated” behind closed doors? Vote counts to be corrupted? Lobbyists to buy favor? Expense accounts for government representatives that dwarf the average worker’s salary? Salaries for elected officials to be over 5 times that of the average worker? Where exactly does it say you can take my rights given me by GOD? Where exactly does it say you may impinge on my free speech? Where exactly does it say you can hand out free sex kits to my children at school? I would like you to point out the part that says you can send our jobs overseas, drive down the value of our dollar and steal the equity in our homes. I would also like you to point out the part that says you can fund banks, insurance companies and auto companies with our tax dollars. As long as you’re at it show me where it says the size of government is supposed to exceed that of the private sector.
Instead of preferring we get our news from stations with anchors that mention Lincoln as their favorite founding father, why don’t worry about studying the actual founding fathers and their intent.
If you think you have issues now with the American voter.. go ahead and ask your questions, that way we will know exactly who to vote for. It sure as hell is not going to be any of you.
The days of the Progressive in Washington DC are numbered. You may as well wear signs that say “endangered species”.
Just in case you pull an Obama on us and pretend our memories are about a day long, we have your records and we aren’t afraid to look them up.
Mr President, I know you’re going to try to sound like a moderate during the State of The Union Address, but we have a LOT of video we can repeatedly roll out to remind people you are for FUNDAMENTAL CHANGE – only now, many of us know exactly what that means, and we’re not buying it.
You said you would rather be a good one term president that a bad two term president ??? I think you left out an option there- just sayin’.
Those of you who heard the rumors but didn’t believe citizens who cherish the Constitution and a sound financial system were labeled “Right Wing Extremists” by your government – do you need more proof?
