Mindless Republicans are heeding the iron discipline of conservative talk radio hosts Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh, House Financial Services Chairman Barney Frank (D-Mass.) told reporters after President Barack Obama’s address to the nation on Tuesday.
“I don’t think we found any Republican minds today,” Frank told a reporter minutes after the president had finished his speech. “[T]hey shut their minds down. That they are so afraid of being yelled at by Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity that they won’t even clap for him [Obama] when they agree with him.”
Umm, Congressman Frank could it be that they just honestly disagree with his policies???
Lets not forget 57 million Americans voted for the John McCain so I think it’s a fair to say that a sizable percentage of the population disagrees Pres. Obama’s vision.
By the way I seem to recall a large number of Democrats sitting on their hands during Pres. Bush’s State of the Union speeches. Were they afraid of being yelled at by liberal talk radio hosts or did they simply disagree with his ideas?
Actually, I watched the SotU if you want to call it that, and there were a few places where republican’s did stand. Maybe Barney Frank was to busy worshiping obama from his own seat to notice.
Well unfortunately, even though many people voted for McCain, most of them didn’t seriously understand his policies verses Obama’s policies. The two are fundamentally one in the same. They both want intervention in the marketplace and overseas. They both are just fine with infringing on personal liberty, and neither of them talk about restoring fiscal responsibility in terms of cutting spending overseas, with welfare, and getting rid of the income tax without replacing it with any other alternative tax.
Barney Frank is a moron though.
