Biden Says Tea Party Republicans Like Terrorists Holding Guns to Heads

Hey, whatever happened to all that talk from the Lefturds in Washington about needing to tone down the violent rhetoric in the wake of Gabrielle Giffords’ shooting?  Oh, wait.  Now I get it; that gag order only applies to Conservatives:

Biden: Tea partiers like ‘terrorists’

By JONATHAN ALLEN & JOHN BRESNAHAN – Politico

Vice President Joe Biden joined House Democrats in lashing tea party Republicans Monday, accusing them of having “acted like terrorists” in the fight over raising the nation’s debt limit.

Biden was agreeing with a line of argument made by Rep. Mike Doyle (D-Pa.) at a two-hour, closed-door Democratic Caucus meeting.

“We have negotiated with terrorists,” an angry Doyle said, according to sources in the room. “This small group of terrorists have made it impossible to spend any  money.”

Here, let me fix that quote for you:

“This small group of terrorists have made it impossible FOR US to spend YOUR  money.” 

Yup, that’s better.  And…More accurate!

Biden, driven by his Democratic allies’ misgivings about the debt-limit deal, responded: “They have acted like terrorists,” according to several sources in the room.

Biden’s office declined to comment about what the vice president said inside the closed-door session.

Earlier in the day, Biden told Senate Democrats that Republican leaders have “guns to their heads” in trying to negotiate deals.

The vice president’s hot rhetoric about tea party Republicans underscored the tense moment on Capitol Hill as four party leaders in both chambers work to round up the needed votes in an abbreviated time frame. The bill would raise the debt limit by as much as $2.4 trillion through the end of next year and reduce the deficit by an equal amount over the next decade.

Democrats had no shortage of colorful phrases in wake of the deal.

Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) called it a “Satan sandwich,” and Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) called seemed to enjoy the heat analogy, saying: “the Tea Partiers and the GOP have made their slash and burn lunacy clear, and while I do not love this compromise, my vote is a hose to stop the burning. The arsonists must be stopped.

The deal was consummated Sunday night, the text of the bill was posted in the wee hours of Monday morning, and the House was expected to vote first on it Monday afternoon or evening. But there are still plenty of concerns in both parties and in both chambers.

Liberal Democrats have had the most averse reaction to the plan, which ensures between $2.1 trillion and $2.4 trillion in deficit reduction over the next decade without requiring any of it to come from tax increases.

Biden told Democratic lawmakers that the deal would take away the tea party’s “weapon of mass destruction” — the threat of a default on U.S. debt obligations.

“They have no compunction about blowing up the economy to get what they want,” Doyle told POLITICO after the meeting.

By the way, in case you haven’t figured it out on your own, the established Repuglicans and DemonRats are under orders to vilify anyone associated with the Tea Party.  Hence, you will be hearing a lot of rhetoric like this in the future.  Of course, they are doing this because it takes the heat off of them (the Repuglicans and DemonRats), as well as the Commander in Thief, while whipping the new batch of Tea Party Conservatives back into line.

Of course, in their effort to vilify Tea Party Conservatives as terrorists, they seem to have put blinders on to the actions of their own lefturd constituents, today:

  2. Dukem Says:

    I liked the comment, that if the Tea Partiers were terrorists, they would also have been welcomed with open arms like the islam terrorists have been. The Dems must think there is a difference.

  3. Big Frank Says:

    The real terror is the confiscation of what little we have left in our wallets due to the insane policies of our “Dear Leader’ and his taxaholic and spendaholic regime.

      If you have not read this four part essay by El Inglés over at the dreaded Gates of Vienna its well worth the time. A bit ahead of the predicted time schedule though,imo.

      Gonzo, the Tea Party destroyed Motor City don’t cha know! Oh wait, it wasn’t the Tea Party it was the Auto Union. I know, I just couldn’t resist. Of all the Tea Parties I have attended I never was offered or et a burnt store bought cookie. Could be a clue.

      • Gonzo Says:

        That whole 1400 year bloody rift between the sunni and shiite after p.mo. died – that is all the Tea Party’s fault.

        My my my, but the new world order seems to fear this grass roots effort. Seems quite prudent for me to take a substantial look at it and perhaps join the cause. I tend to like Herman Cain, so it shouldnt be that difficult of a transition.

        • tgusa Says:

          Herman Cain is a good man, even if he doesn’t win the Presidency theres a place for him at the table. Our current pres is completely the opposite. Visit W3Schools.com!

            WTH, Should read Visit Big Government.

            regarding the article, actually, that thought crossed my mind. Not because he is black, but that it is part of a method of discrediting blacks in politics. Again, I go back to the resonating Herman Cain, a conservative, and what may be white guilt’s way of saying that hating Obama had nothing to do with being a racist.

            I think the repubs fear the Tea, and the elitists are feeling a sense of loss of control. Between elitist politics and socialists politics, is it any wonder that Joe avg is looking for a none-of-the-same to vote for?

            I’ll take a straight shooter anytime now in politics….anyone……anyone……</cue cricket noise

            I agree, they only want to protect the status quo. And really there is no coherent plan of any kind for any issue. We may need to just disband the current guvmint and start over from square one. Of course we would have to shutter most of these avg Joe killing departments that are making it illegal to even provide for ourselves, our families or friends. They are regulating the USA out of existence and asking for more taxes at the same time.
