Skip to comments.George Will Confronts MSNBC Analyst for Comparing Tea Party to Terrorists
Posted on 08/09/2011 2:39:47 PM PDT by radioone
Steve Rattner is a regular guest analyst on MSNBCs Morning Joe and a former Obama adviser. Recently he labeled the Tea Party economic terrorist for not in his estimation playing fair during the debt ceiling negotiations. According to him, it was unreasonable for Tea Party congressman not to consider any tax increases, and it was wrong for them to threaten not to raise the debt limit unless such increases were taken off the table.
As the debate continued, Will pulled out his ace in the hole. See, what Rattner failed to realize or realized but didnt want to admit is that there were actually more Democrats in the House that eventually voted against the compromise than Republicans. That point wasnt lost to Will:
You do know that 95 House Democrats voted against raising the debt ceiling as compared to only 66 House Republicans. You do know that 26 Democratic Senators voted against raising the debt ceiling?

That’s not the right point.
The correct point is the Dems had overwhelming majorities in both houses less than 1 year ago. They could have raised taxes any time they wanted. It was THEY who had the power to raise and chose not to raise.
I suspect because The Massiah didn’t want that blot on his record come Nov 2012.
It wasl also the RATS who failed to pass a budget in over two years...
Rats are filthy, disgusting miserable creatures.
Rattner wasn’t even allowed to answer. The B*tch saw where Will was going and immediately sidetracked the conversation into “entitlements”.
The reality is that the democrats only want to push tax increases as part of some other package to avoid taking the blame. They want a bipartisan tax increase they aren't going to get.
Ooops my bad - turns out that was the work of an elite terrorist cell known as the democrats.
Only an observation....but they must be fairly scared to run up these bogus comments almost daily now. I don’t think you can watch twelve minutes of MSNBC without Tea Party and terrorist being used in the same sentence.
You wrote: “I dont think you can watch twelve minutes of MSNBC without Tea Party and terrorist being used in the same sentence.”
Why would anyone want to spend twelve irreplaceable minutes of their life watching MSNBC? Of course, I am biased as we have not owned a television nor watched any television since 2002.
Jordan is one tough SOB. Not one to back down:
“Jim Jordan was raised in Champaign County, Ohio, graduating from Graham High School in 1982, where he was a four-time state champion in wrestling with a career record of 150-1. He went on to earn a Bachelors Degree in Economics from the University of Wisconsin, where he was a two-time NCAA wrestling champion. He later earned a Masters degree in Education from the Ohio State University and a Law Degree from Capital University in Columbus, Ohio.”
