Steny Hoyer, family psychologist

January 6, 2011

I’m getting so confused. You see, I thought I and others like me opposed ObamaCare and other liberal-fascist Democratic programs because we believe strongly in limited government that operates within the bounds of the Constitution and that those same programs were actually harmful to the nation. In other words, we were acting in good faith and on principle.

Silly me.

Since the (Social) Democratic Party was given free reign with the election of President Obama, we’ve been variously told that we’re Nazi sympathizers, racists, and an angry mob that makes a fetish of the Constitution.

Now we know the root causes of our irrational rage. It’s not our fault — we’re victims!

According to Steny Hoyer (D-MD), former House Majority Leader and apparently a specialist in Family Psychology, our opposition to all the wonderful things the Democrats have done for us is rooted in our dysfunctional families:

There are a whole lot of people in the Tea Party that I see in these polls who don’t want any compromise. My presumption is they have unhappy families. All of you have been in families: single-parent, two-parents, whatever. Multiple parent and a stepfather. The fact is life is about trying to reach accommodation with one another so we can move forward. That is certainly what democracy is about. So if we are going to move forward compromise is necessary.

Representative Hoyer said that two days ago. Contrast his arrogance with the humility shown by John Boehner as he was sworn in yesterday as Speaker. Isn’t it usually the loser who’s humble and the winner who crows?

Hoyer’s “diagnosis” is yet another example of the stunning arrogance and patronizing contempt for their fellow citizens that permeates the progressive wing of the Democratic Party, which is to say the majority of what’s left of their caucus on the Hill. It is the attitude of an arrogant oligarchy that cannot come to terms with having some of their power taken away and facing the prospect of losing the rest of it in two years. They’re like an employee fired for incompetence who refuses to own up to the truth and instead whines that his boss was out to get him.

Steny, I think you’re the one who needs the psychologist. Not us.

Monday links fiesta

August 10, 2009

It’s a busy, busy day, today. (Why is it the day before a vacation is so hectic? At wits end) So, in lieu of a real post, here are some links to keep you amused, enlightened, and on the White House enemies list:

Global Warming Climate Change Junk Science Watch:

One of the major problems with the computer models cited by global-warming alarmists is their utter failure to accurately model the past or predict the future. Ron House at Watt’s Up With That? looks at one, the failure to find the predicted atmospheric red spot. For more background on this, check out David Evans’ 2008 article in The Australian: No smoking hot spot.

Guess what? The sun and variations in the Earth’s orbit are the cause of ice ages, not CO2.

More on CO2 and climate change: it’s a trailing indicator, not a cause.

On the Svensmark theory that cosmic rays influence the Earth’s cloud cover and thus Earth’s climate:

Sarah Palin Watch:

The former Alaska governor last week denounced the proposed health-care reform plan as evil. That caused a predictable firestorm, even on the Right. Rick Moran, normally a level-headed writer, denounced her for outrageous demagoguery. Smitty at The Other McCain, on the other hand, drew his sword to defend Mrs. Palin and denounce Mr. Moran as a blowhard. In this case, I’m with Smitty. Palin may have engaged in a bit of hyperbole when she used the words “death panel,” but, as Despina Karras shows, she wasn’t all that far off the mark. Legal Insurrection points out the underlying accuracy of her words, too.

Fishy Activities Watch:

Opposition to ObamaCare continues to grow, despite the Democrats best efforts to clap their hands to their ears and scream “I CAN’T HEAR YOU!”:

First, believe it or not, President Obama wants you to just shut up.

Meanwhile, enjoy this video of peaceful, unionized supporters of health-care reform kicking the crap out of a conservative Black man who dared to voice dissent. (More from Fausta and Hot Air.) And here’s a video of the victim attending a protest in a wheelchair a couple of days later outside of the local headquarters of the ever-peaceful SEIU, whose goons administered the beating. Why does this ring a bell?

More on SEIU’s commitment to democracy.

Meanwhile, did you know that the Speaker of the House of Representatives of the United States, the woman second in line for the Presidency, and the House Majority Leader both think that vocal opposition to ObamaCare is un-American? Way to build that majority, Nancy and Steny! I’m sure slagging large swathes of the American people will bring loads of new voters to the Democratic banner. Minority Leader Boehner, on the other hand, takes predictable (and justifiable) exception to their editorial.

And, hey, if you object to being called un-American, how about being compared to Oklahoma City-bomber Timothy McVeigh? NiiiiceWaiting

Finally:

I always like to end linkapalooza posts with some humor. Tito found this hilarious blast from the past, Don Rickles roasting then-Governor Ronald Reagan. Enjoy.
