Dan Rather: Obama's Opponents 'Want to Cut His Heart Out and Throw His Liver to the Dogs' By Noel Sheppard Created 05/05/2013 - 11:28am
Dan Rather on Sunday once again made a comment about President Obama's opponents that some might find a bit over the top.
Appearing on the syndicated Chris Matthews Show, Rather said, "These people politically want to cut his heart out and throw his liver to the dogs" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
DAN RATHER: All of these things weve said about what the president could do, should do, might have, could have, but the central thing to keep in mind is his opponents - you talk about taking them out to dinner, making nice with them - these people politically want to cut his heart out and throw his liver to the dogs. That does make it very, very difficult to come on nice to them.
CHRIS MATTHEWS, HOST: Yeah, it causes indigestion over dinner dont you think?
KATTY KAY, BBC: Is that what they do in Texas Dan?
MATTHEWS: By the way, Im with you Dan because I dont know how much, I do think he doesn't enjoy the company of his fellow politicians. Excuse me, Mr. President, youre one of them.
For those that have forgotten, Rather made the same comment on the Chris Matthews Show back in November 2010.
Wouldn't you say that's a bit of an overstatement?
More importantly, hasn't the President since the day he was first inaugurated treated his opponents with the same disdain?
Liberal media members rarely consider that.
Well, we are assuming Buttcrack has a heart.
Enterprise, at post #40...
Rather does have a way with words, doesn’t he. Maybe it is the only way he can get attention.
A little bit of history:
"Presently a large fire was seen, around which were more than thirty warriors, and about double that number of boys and squas. As soon as the Colonel arrived, he was stripped naked, and compelled to sit on the ground. The squas and boys then fell upon him, and beat him severely with their fists and sticks. In a few minutes, a large stake was fixed in the ground, and piles of hickory poles were spread around it."
"Colonel Crawford's hands were then tied behind his back; a strong rope was produced, one end of which was then fastened to the bottom of the stake. The rope was long enough for him to walk around the stake several times and then return. Fire was applied to the poles, which lay in piles at the distance of six or seven yards from the stake."
"His ears had been cut off, and the blood was streaming down each side of his face. A terrible scene of torture now commenced. The warriors shot charges of powder into his naked body, commencing with the calves of his legs, and continuing to his neck. The boys snatched the burning hickory poles and applied them to his flesh. As fast as he ran around the stake, to avoid one party of tormenters, he was promptly met at every turn by others, with burning poles, red hot irons, and rifles loaded with powder only; so that in a few minutes nearly one hundred charges of powder had been shot into his body, which had become black and blistered in a dreadful manner. The squas would take up a quantity of coals and hot ashes, and throw them upon his body, so that in a few minutes he had nothing but fire to walk upon."
Rather is another hysteric on MSNBC.
What’s with the left and these hysterical outbursts?
They sound like they need meds.
Well, it would be only fair for the dogs to get a chance to fight back.
I just want him gone as president.
Dan Rather is still alive?
Well, he did say “politically”, so he’s not claiming they want to do him physical harm. Is he claiming it’s wrong to want to win policy fights and defeat those whose policies are opposed by those who entrusted you with office? That’d be news to Democrats, I’m sure, and even Rather himself, if it applied to Republicans.
I’ll be happy if Obama quits.
I just want Obama to pack up and go home.
“With sow fave beans and a nice chianti.”
How about Castor beans and Ripple instead?
I don't know. I know that I feel the same way about Rather as I do about Obama.
I really looked at this picture for a long time & realized that every person in it is laughing at Obama or smirking at him or shocked. Now that IS embarassing.
P.S. By posting on this thread, we are now on a government hit list.
It’s a start, Dan...
It’s only fair. After all, he ate dogs as a kid, so why not feed him to them? “It’s the Great Circle of Life, Simba!”
