There's something very wrong with liberals. Very, very wrong. They love to take political advantage of the dead, whether it's Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Freddie Gray, Benghazi or the Amtrak dead.
The bodies of the dead in the Amtrak crash weren't cold- and perhaps hadn't even been recovered yet- when the left began using the Amtrak tragedy to hammer Republicans, blaming budget cuts for the crash. You see, it was budget cuts that made the train go twice as fast as it was supposed to be going. Predictably, the NY Times jumped in with both feet:
Such spending now represents about 1.5 percent of total economic activity, down from about 1.8 percent on average from 1993 through 2008. Its at its lowest level in at least 22 years. (A hat-tip to Joe Weisenthal, of Business Insider, who calculated this statistic in 2013, after the collapse of a bridge near Seattle.)Did you see it? Did you see that history ended in 2008? We're going to get to that in a minute, because history did not end in 2008 and then start up again once the GOP took the House and Senate in 2012. Let's call it "The Time of Missing History."
Megyn Kelly was ripping angry at democrats' exploitation of the horror:
As we've noted, according to the left history stopped in 2009 and then began again in 2012. Well, let's crank up the Wayback Machine once again and find that lost history. Back in 2009 there was something called a democrat controlled Congress and something else called a democrat President. And back in 2009 there was something called a "stimulus" passed by that democrat Congress and democrat President. It came to about $800 billion or so.
At the moment, democrats can't complete a sentence without the word "infrastructure." OK, let's check out how important that was to them back in The Time of Missing History. democrats promised a "historic" investment in infrastructure:

How do budget cuts make the train go faster? Sounds to me as if what made it go faster is the wrong person at the controls!
Amtrack was not a priority for Obama and the Democrat House and Senate in 2009, when they passed their $890 billion “stimulus bill.” Their priority was Solyndra and other massive Green failures. The GOP had nothing to do with this utter waste of taxpayer money that enriched fat cat Democrat donors.
Remember when they performed a run of political speeches at various funerals? Remember when they tried to ban guns off the deaths of those children in Connecticut?
They love to kill babies...so I know they could care less about the lives lost in that train crash or the school shooting. They do not mind inciting blacks to murder and beat white people for political gain so I know that they are not inspired by love for people or by protecting people.
They have a total power political agenda and they don’t care if it helps anyone or not as long as they have total power over everyone. They are in a roar to overcome the constitution and free will of people. When that happens, those in power murder millions of people.
