Posted on 07/20/2011 12:23:31 PM PDT by MissesBush
Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) calls Republicans "dead-beat debtors" among other things during a Democratic press conference on Wednesday morning.
"The debate and fight is not between Democrats and Republicans. It's between some Republicans and their sort of cult fringe as I refer to them out there," Harkin said.
"Democrats are willing to do whatever is necessary to raise the debt ceiling, not for future borrowing but to pay the debts that we racked up in the past. Which, mostly was racked up by a Republican House, a Republican Senate and a Republican President in the last 8 years. Yet, they're not willing to pay the bills," Harkin said.

THE COMMUNIST PARTY (I quit calling it the democrat party after they passed obamacare) IS DESTROYING AMERICA AND THEY ACTUALLY THINK THEY ARE DOING SOMETHING GOOD. WE ARE IN DANGER AND NEED TO START ACTING LIKE WE ARE AT WAR.
I contacted Sen Harkin and corrected him on a couple of points. I am sure he won’t make the same mistakes again.
according to ‘treasurydirect.gov’, 4.5 trillion that the R’s racked up from 1994 thru 2006 is equaled to the amount that the D’s racked up in 1/3 the time, from 2006-2010.
Also told him that I was thrilled that he wants to raise the debt ceiling ‘not for future borrowing’ but to pay current debts. He and I agree on this - no more borrowing for the future, just pay the debt. I also informed him that we make a lot more every month than the debt costs, so we don’t really need to worry about default.
Knowledge is power, and I am sure he will do fine with correct info...
LOL! I wonder if he really believes this?
Tom Harkin, who the heck is that? I’ll tell you, a worthless liberal dunce from head to toe that has been braindead for years!!! Pubbies in the House!!! Do not give in. Let the Senate defeat your bill or, if somehow it passes the Senate, send it immediately to POTUS Obama and dare him to veto it!!! Call the POTUS Bluff!!!
Common tactic of Dems-—accuse others of doing what you are doing. Isn’t that an Alinsky tactic?
Obama is a member of a cult? because he is the only one holding up a deal.
Harkin in a Marxist.
Okay Tommy boy, get off your hemorrhoid infested fat ass and show us YOUR plan that YOU have worked so hard on to save the country financially!
Or are YOU what you are calling those who are actually creating a vision for the future!
These people are so effin' worthless outside of campaigning it isn't funny!
Good for the “cult”!
What a douchebag.
Senator Harkin, we are not fringe; we are the fabric. And, we’ve finally decided that we’ve had enough of you and your blood-sucking colleagues.
Allen West did say something like “anyone who still has an Obamama bumper sticker is a danger to society”...
Every Democrat who’s still in the Senate since 2006 voted against raising the debt ceiling in 2006. Obama, Clinton, Biden, and others.
Lousy rat hypocrites.
I’m supposed to TRUST this crowd of America haters who have long said that Americans must give up driving what and where they want to, must give up air conditioning and other creature comforts?
Don’t forget refusing to defund Planned Parenthood, PBS/NPR, the NEA, et al.
How in the world does this s##thead keep getting reelected in Iowa? I could understand if it was here in the People’s Republic of Illinois (we have the hellhole of Chicago to deal with) but you folks in Iowa don’t have that excuse.
Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) calls Republicans dead-beat debtors
Is that part of that new era of civility that the turdburger in the White House referred to after the Giffords shooting?
Is he really so stupid as to try to get people to believe that we can BORROW our way out of debt?
Harkin is a Socialist “cult fringe” all unto himself!
He would have fought in the streets side by side with Lenon’s relatives in old Russia before the revolution. (as old as he is, he really might have!)
Tom “I was a combat fighter Pilot in ‘nam”
Epic lying asshole.
“The American Cult. That would be Americans who are not Communists.”
Really, you blibbering old fool? Your yellow dog cadre held the House hostage for 4 years before the voters kicked your ass last November.
Hey Tommy, you know that when you retire, a Republican is going to take your seat.
Thomas Jefferson was apparently an early member of that “cult fringe”.
“I, however, place economy among the first and most important republican virtues, and public debt as the greatest of the dangers to be feared.”
“We must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our election between economy and liberty or profusion and servitude.”
“As the doctrine is that a public debt is a public blessing, so they think a perpetual one is a perpetual blessing, and therefore wish to make it so large that we can never pay it off.”
Gomer, you're an embarassment to your children and grandchildren.
“$1,791,000 by Senate Agriculture Appropriations Subcommittee member Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) for swine odor and manure management research in Ames”
By far his most useful accomplishment (aside from the fact that a more logical site for this particular research would be at the US Capitol).
So I am now a member of a “cult? Sen. Harken, you have been in the sun too long!!!!!!!!!!!!
He is another Senate fossil living in those thrilling days of yesteryear . Onward into the past.
“By far his most useful accomplishment (aside from the fact that a more logical site for this particular research would be at the US Capitol).”
ROFLOL...you nailed that!
Then he is willing to scrap ObamaCare? These dems are liars. The American people are fools to put up with them. Sometimes I hear references to the "wisdom of the American people". I don't believe it for a minute or we wouldn't be where we are right now with $1.5T annual deficits. It is not just the politicians' fault. It is the peoples' fault.
Time to bring it back
Harkin is a liar.
When HarkinIdiot acknowledges that the far left is a “cult fringe” and that the left’s enviro-idiots are a “cult fringe,” I will perhaps consider halting in calling him an IDIOT. =.=

“Democrats are willing to do whatever is necessary to raise the debt ceiling, so we can spend more of someone else’s money.”
There, fixed it.
This harkin imbecile is a pathetic waste of skin. harkin is a liar and a duplicitous dupe. harkin, you fool...go back to Iowa where you can blend in well with various manure piles.
Please Iowa, I beg of you, throw this fool out of office.
How the heck do you pay a debt by getting more credit cards? This guy must be on crack.
I am certain he was referring to Obama and his little fascist Czars as the cult fringe that is wrecking everything. He mispoke when he blamed the Americans.
Was Harkin wearing a crack pot on his head when he said this or was it a basket case?
GoPM: Communist tyrant politicians trying to crash the economy through radical spending.
He thinks all Republicans will vote for it but not even 1 Democrat will vote for it.
Says "Gang of Six" is at best 1 to 1, cut to tax hike according to the handout he was given.
I love it! Gonna make a bumper sticker out of it!
Harkin is an old-line communist sympathizer, starting with his Con Son Island fraud, his Vietnam Vet status fraud, and his help for the marxist dictatorship in Nicaragua during the 1980’s.
If there is a “fringe” and “cult” around, it is the marxist one that he belongs to. His records tells the truth. His mouth tells lies and spouts disinformation.
As you said MissesBush, “Comrade Tom” is “obsessed”. I call it mentally ill. He needs a straightjacket ASAP.
He sounds like a retard person on drugs...out in front of WalMart.
