Skip to comments.Max Baucus Denies Being Blotto on Senate Floor. Take Poll and Tell Us What You Think
Posted on 12/28/2009 4:20:09 PM PST by Shellybenoit
Yesterday we posted the video below, of Senator Max Baucus is making a weird rant on the Senate Floor. The Montana Senator is slurring his words and it seems as if he delivered this impassioned speech on the Senate floor a bit "Pickled."
Today, Tyler Matsdorf, spokesman for the Baucus, released the following denial:
"When his friend of 30 years Ted Kennedy, with whom he had fought so hard to provide health care to children, was being used as a cheap foil to oppose health care reform, Senator Baucus gave a passionate defense. Unfortunately, those who want to kill any meaningful reform, turned it into an unfounded, untrue personal smear internet rumor. This is beyond the pale and this type of gutter politics has no place in the public sphere. It is this type of slander that makes Montanans, and Americans, disgusted with the politics as usual in Washington. And what is even more sad is that such a personal attack would be given any validity

And someone thought he wouldn’t.
Possible Drunk? Possible neurological problems? Possible minor stroke? Possible low blood glucose levels?
I think drunk is more likely. Just my humble opinion.
I watched that whole fiasco live, and the mention of Teddy’s name came up when the R (Wicker?) made the comment, that despite Teddy’s liberalness, he really believed in true bipartisanship, and that if he were still alive he’d be appalled at the way the R’s were shouldered out of the whole Obamacare mess—he also brought up something to the effect that this democrat party was NOT the same one John Kennedy had believed it.
That’s when Baucus took over the floor and rudely began berating the R’s in a drunken stupor! Sorry, Baucus flunkey, no can do! That excuse ain’t flying!
Baucus is rather aggressive....Unbecoming of a senator...
He was absolutely Sh*t-faced drunk.
Ked Tennedy would have been plowed... I mean, proud today..."
So far, “Drunk” and “Sh*t faced” running neck and neck....
Ok, what ever it was it’s permanenet and no one is surprised! Could be the end result of liberal progression.
Well, that’s the end of that. After all, I’ve never known a politician to lie.
“Drunk, stupid and Democrat is no way to go through life.”
His cup runneth over !
Invoking Ted Kennedy did not help his case.
From now on I will refer to him as WAX Baucus. HEY MONTANA!!! Your boy just dissed you all the way down. What a disrespectful way to represent such a beautiful state.
It’s the allegation that counts. The video is the kicker.
He’ll never escape that video whether he was cold sober or not.
Myself, I’ve seen enough drunks in my life to know what one sounds and looks like.
Just a guess....from the slurrrr.....I’m thinking vodka or gin....wave the vermouth cap over the glass, toss the olive in the trash and shoot it down.
He was drunk out of his mind.
The man clearly has great moral shortfalls. He’s had multiple divorces, affairs, and was a running buddy with Ted Kennedy.
Yeah, he was drunk.
This poll doesn’t make the Lid look very good. Only 107 people voted so far? And that’s with a steady bump of their site on FR.
I watched the video. Guilty.
Baucus ain’t got nothin on Biden....
Sure looked and sounded like he was sauced, IMO. Of course, there are other prospective reason...illness, stroke, etc. But, I’m putting it down to alcohol.
It’s time to take back the country.
Those asswipes need a drug test and an alcohol test before every vote. The results would be very revealing.
And the idiots continue to vote for them......
I can be a quite naive about these things but even I know the guy was drunk.
So is it “Baucus” or is it “Bacchus”? He isn’t responsible for his last name... but one has to wonder if there isn’t a little cosmic joke going on!
Good thing someone grabbed Max’s keys before he hopped in the car with his new honey and headed across the 14th Street bridge.
Yes a drunkard! It’s a great day for freeping tisn’t it? The Dems are falling apart right in front of our frinkin eyes!
If he wasn’t drunk he needs to go into entertainment. He could fill the void left by the death of Foster Brooks
Please ... didn’t want to go there. Maybe his ghost is still in the Senate Chambers.
I have never seen this in all my years. To have someone on the floor drunk. IF he was drunk. I do not know for sure but all indications point to it. If he did have a strok or something else then it would be out there. Disgrace all of them. Every single one of them.
This would be a great campaign poster...for whoever runs against him - maybe with an umbrella-equipped taxpayer in the water...
