WASHINGTON (AP) A congressman who was spat on by a protestor on Capitol Hill says he is declining to press charges, but turns out the Capitol Police say they made no arrests.

Missouri Democrat Emanuel Cleaver was making his way through a group of angry protestors when the incident occurred. It was one of several ugly incidents in a day of protests against President Barack Obama's health care overhaul measure, which faces a House vote on Sunday.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A congressman who was spat on by a protestor on Capitol Hill says he is declining to press charges . . .

. . . once he found out that the whole incident (or lack thereof) was caught on tape.

always the victim. It’s ALL the Dems know how to do. God forbid, they help create jobs, balance a budget, etc...that would take hard work. Nah, much easier to go with the victim thing.

They’re looking America straight in the face and saying F*** YOU.

If they cram this down our throats, they’ll soon be wishing for the day when it was only a little verbal abuse and well place loogies hurled at them.

We’re NOT gonna take this sh!t!!!

Why not put a tag line on it and post it to refute the accusation. The only FRs that see what you have now are FRs going through the trouble of fighting through Robinson’s pesky posts about Romney and clicking to this thread.

Flashback:

Attendees at a Hilary Clinton for president event, I believe it was a kick off event in NY, actually did spit on a event planned Military color Guard, carrying a us flag.

I am SURE the LA Times reported on the REAL occurrence.

When they start this crap, it means they are trying to fire up the idiots in their base. Amazing that we live in a time where Pravda tells the truth and the American media are the worst kind of delusional lying scum.

Cleaver ran Kansas City into the ground as a corrupt mayor.
He has fared no better in congress.

I say “Show Me” the evidence.
Videos pretty much say he is a liar.

All those cops didn’t twitch? Please...can we get this out to the press somehow? Get it to Fox? Did you hit all of their mailboxes with it? We should all send it to whoever we know...I’ll do it now, but no guarantee how many will need to be sent to get some through. Fox will play it.

The delusions of the black caucus are grandiose. They just knew it would be like Selma when they sashayed thru the crowd. To their disappointment, the crowd was civil as well as color blind. Although the orchestrated charade failed them, they went on with the lie regardless. Still stuck in the sixties, they totally missed the concept everyone has digital recording devices which can readily disprove any lies anyone might attempt later. Stuck in a time warp and delusional.

If it passes, we need to ensure that all the incoming Republicans are committed to undoing it and if the Dems try to stop us, we need to show them what fascism is really all about. I'm talking about a whole new level of political ugliness.

By tomorrow the media will be reporting how the black congressmen were beaten and bloodied while Tea Party people stood by with their children...and cheered.
