Baucus denounces video as ‘personal smear’
helenair.com ^ | 12/28/09 | MIKE DENNISON

Posted on 12/28/2009 8:34:58 PM PST by Nachum

Sen. Max Baucus' office Monday denounced a widely viewed Internet video that suggested Baucus was drunk on the Senate floor last week, calling it an "untrue, personal smear" designed to attack Democrats' health-care reform legislation.

"This is beyond the pale, and this type of gutter politics has no place in the public sphere," said Baucus spokesman Ty Matsdorf.

At least 60 senators had to be bombed out of their minds to pass this train wreck.

I watched the video and I honestly couldn’t tell if he was drunk.

However, I could tell that his words claiming to have reached out to the Republicans and seeking bipartisanship were wholesale lies. So maybe claiming drunkedness is a good defense for his empty words.

Yeah, now that you mention it, I guess it is not so easy to tell a drunk RAT from a sober one. Neither makes sense.

I still think he was punch drunk.

He would know about the gutter, no doubt having spent some time passed out drunk there...

Love the pictures!!!

If Baucus wasn’t drunk (and I say he was) then he needs to see a doctor right away because he had a serious stroke for his words to be that slurred and his thoughts that jumbled!!

Take care Max baby, or your girlfriend will be without her sugar daddy.

“This is beyond the pale, and this type of gutter politics has no place in the public sphere,”

He’s right of course; gutter politics is the exclusive domain of the Rats. They are really good at it, much better than Conservatives.

That's pretty rich. A public pronouncement by himself, on C-Span, in his own words and gestures, and it's a "personal smear". Democrats just do not like the public to notice their strategy of routine petulant truculence. When the pubic does notice, then they really start to whine.

I bet the Democrats could win the college vote if they turn the Baucus speeches into a drinking game.

The guy was drunk, on drugs, having a stroke, or some other medical issue.

My bet is he was drunk.

The article claims he’s not slurring his words. Then posts/links to the video.

Of course, he’s slurring his words. I believe he’s drunk or under the influence of something or several somethings: Power, fatigue, alcohol and/or prescription drugs.
