“It’s interesting, and a bit suspicious, that this treaty vote only came up just now during an all-out political war against the Republicans.” From TB’s post “Of course I hadn’t read it before”, below.
This is a treaty originally proposed and still backed by many Republicans, negotiated by George Bush, honoring what is already American law. It isn’t opposed by the GOP UNTIL Obama signs it; when suddenly the TParty goes on the warpath to stop it. They unleashed their loonies: the same gang who proved Obama’s parents planted phony birth announcements in Honolulu when Barack was born in Kenya, so that 50 years later he could legally run for President.
And now you have the the utter, unmitigated, unctuous gall, the burnished brass balls, to accuse the Democrats of being the ones who are playing politics with it?
Do you actually expect us to believe the Dems took a Republican idea, supported it, but then refused to bring it to a vote so that they could do so someday in the future when they somehow knew the Reps would be against it? That they planned this all ahead of time just so they could then use it to humiliate the Republicans in a budget negotiation three years later? Tom, do you really think we are stupid enough to believe that? Do you really think we are stupid enough to believe even you could believe it?
Tell me, is there anything the left can propose that you won’t vilify? And is there anything their enemies will oppose where you won’t automatically join them? Where and when did you become so saturated with hate? How long does it take to accumulate so much poison? Did some liberal steal your lunch money when you were in third grade?
You really are a piece of work.
