Skip to comments.Senator Max Baucus not drunk on Senate Floor (He was really just tired and angry alert)
Posted on 12/28/2009 6:00:46 AM PST by Zakeet
There's a video going around that claims Montana Senator Max Baucus is drunk on the floor of The Senate as he spiritedly takes on Mississippi Senator Roger Wicker in a talk about Health Care Reform.
In fact, the video that started the Conservative's nasty attack on Baucus is from Think Progress, which pointed to Baucus' articulate claims of Republican partisanship"
I want to tell the Senator that that is not what happened. I was in the room constantly, constantly. I talked to those Senators many many times. That is not what happened. I'll tell you what did happen. Your leadership pressured them, pressured them, pressured them not to work together. There is no European style effort in that room, that is a totally untruthful statement. Totally untruthful statement. None whatsoever...That assertion of working towards a European solution is entirely untrue. It's entirely false.
Now, if you can read that, and you can, then you have to agree Baucus was not "slurring" or "drunk" , or "slobbering" when he was speaking. Otherwise he could not have got off such a great blast against Wicker.
And Conservatives know it.
Rather, Baucus was just plain tired and really angry. The product of long hours of debate against Republicans who just don't play fair at all.

So who are you Freepers going to believe -- me or your ly'n eyes?
He was up, really, really late the night before trying to score a job for his, whore, uh, I mean, girlfriend! Yeah that’s the ticket...
“Rather, Baucus was just plain tired and really angry.”
“our TSA system is working perfectly”
“and, if there were any problems, they would all be Bush’s fault”
they’re all children
Happy Hour is when I say it is.Do you know who I am?
No, they don't play fair at all. How dare they oppose trillions in spending on a bill that is based in false pretenses! The uppity bastards!
He’s not drunk. He’s just another lying weasel democrat trying to ram a junk bill down our throats any way he can.
What happened to just reporting the news and letting the chips fall where they may?
The press has long ago discredited itself... sticking up for one drunk Democrat after another.
They enabled Teddy Kennedy to murder a mistress while in a drunken stupor - he never served a minute in prison.
Republicans who just don’t play fair at all.
Yeah that’s it we dont play fair,Bush’s fault(hic)
I am not as think as you drunk I am.
I bet Baucus’ email and phone calls from his constituents has been OVERWHELMINGLY in favor of the socialized health care bill he is cramming down their throats. Or not.
No wonder he is pissed and/or hitting the sauce.
I know drunk when I see it and he WAS drunk...
Haul them out of the car and order a blood test after screening. 95% sure the guy was in the bag.
I heard him call republicans liars. I thought that was against the rules.
It sounded like he had marbles in his mouth. And just because I can read doesn't mean he wasn't drunk.
Drunk, tired and angry, a wery weeeery bad coooomination.
Role tape and watch the drunken liar yourself.
Or, simply put, the loser was DRUNK!
Imagine being a United States Senator. What an honor that once was. Not any more. What we have in Congress are at best street bums and at worse traitors.
"our TSA system is working perfectly"
"Of course you won't have to wait a year for a heart operation like they do in Britain and Canada".
The way he throws his loose jointed arm around. Pugnacious (you republicans are a bunch of cowards). Repeating himself, ignoring everyone around him. I hope he took his limousine home.
