Anthony Weiner's rant captures Dem impotence
The Washington Post's The Plum Line ^ | July 30, 2010 | Greg Sargent

Dems pursued a procedural tack that required two thirds of the House to prevail, enabling Republicans to defeat it, and obviously opposing this bill was a morally questionable thing to do. But I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that Weiner's rant doesn't do anyone any good -- least of all Dems. Republicans want Dems to respond this way -- to fulminate and rant about procedure and about their inability to pass legislation, even though they enjoy comfortable majorities.

Notice how the WaPo Jourbalist is coaching and siding with the Democrats? They don't even pretend to be non-partisan anymore...

I saw the rant on Fox tonight. That guy is a full blown kook. Reminded me of a 5 year old throwing a tantrum.

Dems would be far better served if they kept calmly repeating that Republicans want government to fail

Those of us with measurable IQs know the government has already failed.

Nobody talking about how this “billions for health care” will paid for - we are 1.7 TRILLION in debt now.

NO MORE freebies. as far as ‘morally wrong’ - the author needs to get a grip.

Between Weiner, Grayson, and Rangle...all I know is they can keep coming for the next 60 to 70 days for all I care. Keep blowing up boys! November is coming and you know you are finished.

Weiner has a strong opponent this year. his name is Bob Turner. this is not on any ones map now but that does not mean it is not winnable. The seat only has a Democrat performance margin of 5%. So it is one of the two winnable districts in New York city. This retards actions may well make it more winnable. Bob turners site is below.

Really? Folks in, say, Iowa, should be taxed to pay for benefits to local Firemen and Police in NYC?

If this is so damn important why doesn't NYC raise the money?

They might be starting to melt down at a faster pace, in the face of horrific internal polls.

Michael Barone has essentially said Nov “could” be a historic landslide.

Obama has now thrown Rangel under the bus publicly, a looming Sept House trial the worst possible thing they want to endure.

HAHAHA

Here’s what it boils down to: The Democrats thought some House RINOs would cross over and give them cover, and when they didn’t, they got pissed. They’re frustrated because the jig is up. Republicans get shut out of the debate but then are expected to carry the Dem’s water.

I just love it when Democrats lose control and wet their pants. You can just feel the frustration and rage. Just like a little kid who doesn’t get his way. I’m surprised he didn’t hold his breath.

WaPo call its analysis “The Plum Line”? Don’t they mean “The Plumb Line?”

Are they illiterates or is this some sort of inside joke among the homosexuals in the WaPo news room (are plums the new gerbils?)?

It’s getting out that the dems attached a bunch of CRAP to this bill (illegals’ bennies) and THAT’S why the republicans voted it down. The repubs were ALL FOR aid to the first responders....the dems just wouldn’t pare it down to that, so, IMHO, it makes the dems look like THEY don’t care about our firefighters, cops and rescue workers. (and, they don’t).

Dems are acting cocky ‘cause their puppetmaster/keeper (see tagline) is going to “buy” the Secretaries of State before the 2010 elections:

I’m sorry, but civil servants already have benefits that are far more luxurious then what can be found in private sector. Why noshould the taxpayers be made to foot the bill to further extend them more benefits when our deficit is so out of control.

What is so evil about fiscal responsibility???

I guess his recent marriage to Huma Whatzhername hasn't mellowed Congressman Weiner one bit. I'm so glad. As Hannibal Lector said to Mason Verger, "I prefer you the way you are." I'm looking forward to lots of videos of the loudmouth lunatic lefty from Long Island.

I yield back the balance of my time.

It’s an opinion column so he gets to say whatever he wants. Sort of how the other members of the media criticize Fox for being right-wing when most of the program is news analysis and opinion.

Impotent Weiners can be such an embarrassment when you're trying to score points. LOL!

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

He’s not told the whole story either of course. They had the votes to pass the bill. They needed 218 and had 255 but the House leadership changed the rules so they’d need 290 votes.

Sounds like sabotage to me...then they blame Repubs and their slaves in the MSM will carry the water for them.

Weiner intentionally inserted a poison pill in his bill so that he could rant. I am not sure that is a winning strategy in today’s political climate. The right wing, at least, is not that stupid.
