GOP Seeks to Punish Democratic Lawmaker for 'Die Quickly' Comment
Posted on 09/30/2009 1:49:49 PM PDT by Nachum
Republicans are likening Rep. Alan Grayson's remark to Rep. Joe Wilson's widely criticized shout of "You lie!" during President Obama's address to Congress earlier this month. Taking a page from Democrats who disciplined Rep. Joe "You Lie" Wilson earlier this month, Republicans are seeking their own pound of flesh from a Democratic congressman who said Tuesday that the GOP wants Americans to "die quickly"

Getting up and lying is just as bad, if not worse, than calling someone a lair ...

Why is anybody surprised by what he said? It's been their tactic since the dawn of liberalism to distort the truth and cast evil shadows upon anything on the right.
The guys a hack trying to make political points with senior members. Kinda like the jerk who gets real tuff when he's got a bunch of friends backing him up and outnumbering his opposition in a fight.

This is worse, Obama WAS lying.

Once again congressional Republicans show why they’re the “stupid party”. After all the past examples of why they should never apologise for speaking the truth, and then turn around and expect the rats to apologise for lying, what do they do? The same thing again! They shouldn’t be called the stupid party, they should be called the crazy party, because one definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome.

(Seniors, the new shovel ready project under socialized medicine.)
That’s a real case of projection. What president said the elderly should be given pain pills and sent home to die?
I heard this distortion and I was amazed at the level of evil that walks this land.

Geez, this guy could have at least gotten it right.
First we want to cut your social security check, causing you to lose your home and having to live in the street. Likely the gutter. Then, because of your loss of income, we want you to have to eat dog food.
And if thats not bad enough, right before you die, we are going to force you to dig your own grave.
Get to it seniors!

I heard this this morning.
It was just puerile ranting and, as such, an insult to anyone of intelligence in his audience.

Get this guy censured by Nancy Pelosi. Think that will happen?

It’s been said over and over on MSNBC, he’s merely repeating the talking points. However, the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives is NOT the place for that type of remarks.

A great response to this outrageous claim would be to have a televised news conference and lay out in detail what the conservative plan for healthcare would be!
I am sick and tired of hearing that the "Republicans have no plan!"
NOW would be an opportune time to lay out the conservative plan for the public to see what a "Comon Sense" solution to the so called healthcare problem would look like!
Show the public that we do not have to introduce Socialist Government as the ONLY solution to providing healthcare for the 20 million people that don't have or don't want it.
Besides, the whole idea of socialized medicine is unconstitutional anyways! Not to mention the introduction of an entire governmental overhaul to a socialist government!

Grayson has a terminal case of projection. Which party is the party of ‘euthaniasa’ and ‘right to die’? Hint: It ain’t Republicans.

(If liberals could do math, they would be conservatives.)
“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi now has an opportunity to condemn the very behavior and tone of this health care debate that she claims will ‘incite violence,”’ he said, referring to Democratic concerns that the bitter tone of the health care debate could lead to attacks.
That’s what I was thinking!

Republicans need to stand back and enjoy the meltdown. Grayson is desperate and public opinion will judge his words.
Getting Dems to apologize is like herding cats.
