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.
