Dan Rather: GOPers ‘Seek to Cut Out President Obama’s Heart & Throw His Liver to the Dogs’ By Brad Wilmouth Created 11/21/2010 - 12:00pm

By Brad Wilmouth | November 21, 2010 | 12:00

On Sunday’s syndicated Chris Matthews Show, panel member and former CBS anchor Dan Rather - currently with HDNET - made an over the top metaphor about the Republican Party wanting to "cut out President Obama’s heart and throw his liver to the dogs." The panel was having a discussion of the likelihood of gridlock, with substitute moderator Norah O’Donnell asking, "Isn’t there some pressure on the Republicans not to deal?"

Inspiring hysterical laughter from panel member Katty Kay of the BBC, Rather quipped: "All kinds of pressure, and I think they stated it straightforwardly - some may say it is harsh - but politically they seek to cut out President Obama’s heart and throw his liver to the dogs. That’s what it’s gonna be. They’ve said it directly that’s in their political interest, and that’s what they’ll be trying to do between now and 2012."

He makes it sound like that's a bad thing.

And there's a problem with this??

I would suggest abut 30 days of on-again, off again waterboarding before the "heart - liver" thing....just so he knows a little something regarding what he's talking about.

Absolutely not.

For the record, 0bama doesn’t need us for any of that.

If the man had any honor he’d commit seppuku here and now.

Figuratively speaking, of course.

Metaphorically speaking, absolutely correct.

What the Left did to Bush should be visited on "Obama", tenfold.

The one good thing to come from 0bama is that he’s done a wonderful job of rehabilitating Bush’s image.

Bush will be seen as a pretty decent leader when future historians look back on his administration.

0 deserves everything he is getting and then some.

He WAS a news pig who accidentally got caught faking documents. Why is ANYONE still listening to this liar?

Besides that, his mother was a hamster and his father smelled of elderberries.

LOL! What a drama queen.

You just know that the stories of starving grandmas, homeless puppies, jobless fathers and suffering children are going to be ENDLESS now that the GOP holds the House.

The media will search high and low and no rock will go unturned to find the multitudes in misery that went undiscovered until now.

For sane people, that is a pejorative.

For liberals, being certifiable enhances their likelihood of being certified for a position of power.
