Well, in older vernacular, a person would say “that’s rich”!
On Thursday, White House press secretary Jay Carney launched into an attack on the Tea Party, suggesting that conservatives were thwarting the will of the people and perverting House leadership on the debt ceiling issue and the government shutdown. “We should put everything on the table,” Carney said. “But what we cannot continue to do is punish the American people which is what the Tea Party Republicans are doing in the name of trying to extract partisan demands.”
Oh, right, it’s those evil Tea party people running around putting up barrycades and removing spigot handles ……. oh, wait!!!!
No one but, the most blindly, unthinking leftard will believe that nonsense. Projection after the fact, reduces the argument to the prepubescent meme “I know you are, but, what am I?” Hysterical!
Carney added, “The president has always said he will talk about anything. What he won’t do is pay a ransom…in exchange for Congress doing its fundamental job.” He continued by blaming the Tea Party, saying, “the Tea Party can’t get what it wants through normal legislative means or the ballot box.”
Uhmm, no, actually, we did get it at the ballot box. That’s why you see so many Republicans in the House of Representatives. And Zero has made it clear that he has no intentions of talking to the Repubs. He’s stated over and over again that he will not negotiate.
Over and over again, Carney blamed what he called the Tea Party subsection of the Republican Party for the current shutdown situation, despite the administration’s unwillingness to pass any piecemeal budgeting for particular portions of the government. “It’s spite, it’s deliberate harm to average folks out there,” he said of the Tea Party’s insistence on Obamacare changes. “They’re doing harm to the America people, they’re doing harm to the American economy, and they’re doing harm to the Republican Party, which by all accounts is bad for America,” Carney said, saying the country benefits from two strong parties working together, and ripping “one faction of one house of one branch of government.”
Well, division is something the Spite House excels at. But, I don’t think anyone is going to buy this pile of excrement.
