Well, the efforts to be civil between the Republicans and the Democrats in Washington, D.C. this week did not last too long. Once again, Representative Steve Cohen, (D/TN) calls the tea party movement, which is to be given credit for making a conservative GOP USA House majority possible, reprehensible, yet Rep. Cohen has NO PROBLEM with his nazi comments. How ironic this is, because it was the same Rep. Cohen who called for more civility to tone down the rhetoric not that long ago after the horrible tragic aftermath of the recent Tuscon, AZ, USA, shootings.
Could it be that Anderson Cooper is trying to dig deep for the real reason why Rep. Cohen would use what I call the nazi card? Also Rep. Cohen made references to compare tea party members to that of the KKK. Rep. Cohen, are you THAT AFRAID of every day Americans doing what the USA Constitution allows for us to do, to meet and rally against the massive growth in both government spending and regulations in peaceful assembly? What concerned Americans are doing is simply expressing which is Americans right, the frustrations of this out-of-control federal government. IMHO, what is truly reprehensible is a federal government that cannot live in its means or respect the rule of law.

“Nazi” should be the other “N” word.
You won’t find any leftists who want to take away his fortune. They all stick together in one big criminal family.
They just want to add taxes on those “greedy rich people” trying to support their families on 50k a year.
Words cannot describe how much I hate these vermin. There is nothing good or even human about them. They need to be destroyed. Preferably by peaceful means but they need to be destroyed asap.
Giant Ping List!
I don’t think that is the same cohen.
Isn’t this guy an ex-hedge fund banker worth billions?
Don’t ever listen to hypocrits. Its contagious.
Differnet Steve Cohen
Career Politician, never held a real job.
Stephen Ira “Stevo” Cohen (born May 24, 1949) is the U.S. Representative for Tennessee’s 9th congressional district, serving since 2007. He is a member of the Democratic Party. He previously served as a Tennessee State Senator for 24 years.
Tennessee’s 9th district includes almost three-fourths of Memphis. Cohen is Tennessee’s first Jewish congressman. Cohen is the only non-black representing a black majority district in Congress.
While serving for three years as Legal Advisor for the Memphis Police Department, Cohen rose to political prominence when he was elected to the Tennessee Constitutional Convention of 1977 at the age of 27. The Convention elected him its vice president. Cohen was then elected to serve as a commissioner on the Shelby County Commission, an office he held from 1978 to 1980. During his time at the Commission, Cohen was instrumental in the creation of The Med, a community-funded regional hospital. In 1980, Cohen served as an interim Shelby County General Sessions Court judge. He has also served as a delegate to the 1980, 1992, and 2004 Democratic National Conventions.

Its not his first open mouth and insert foot moment.
Dem. Rep. Steve Cohen (TN) I submit to you, Mr. Speaker, that the parties have differences. But if you want change, you want the Democratic Party. Barack Obama was a community organizer like Jesus, who our minister prayed about. Pontius Pilate was a governor. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.
I submit to you, Mr. Speaker, um, that the parties have differences, but if you want Change, but if you want change, you want the Democratic party, uh, Barack Obama was a community organizer like Jesus who our, uh, minister prayed about, uh, Pontius Pilate was a governor.
Lawmaker: Thank God Bush is gone
July 22, 2010,
There are many Democrats and at least a few Republicans on Capitol Hill who say theyre glad former President George W. Bush is no longer in office, but Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) this week went one step further: He thanked the Almighty for it.
Cohen took to the House floor on Tuesday, where he delivered remarks titled Thank God Bush is Gone.
Cohen blamed the 43rd president for the financial crisis, calling him Hoover George Bush, after former president Herbert Hoover.
Now all [people] can say is Bush is gone, Cohen said, Nobody can defend him.
The lawmaker took a few more swipes at the former president over tax cuts and the Iraq war before concluding, Now all they can say is that hes gone. Thank God hes gone.
How ironic it is that Mr. Cohen is actually the kind of collaborator who would, if he could, work with the very kind of evil tyrants he projects on others.
Took a look at the video of the one of which Rep.Cohen throws out the news reporter. What a hypocrit!
Yeah, and now he’s going to get a handgun permit...I have news for him it ain’t no good in DC.
