The latest clueless Democrat Congressman to spout off about the healthcare bill is Rep. Phil Hare. View the absolutely priceless video of Rep. Hare makning a fool of himself several times over, including saying that “I don’t worry about the Constitution on this, to be honest.” Yes, that is clearly an honest, off the cuff remark. In the days to come, let’s see how he and his co-horts spin that one. Sadly for Rep. Hare, he also confuses the Constitution with the Declaration of Independence,.
He’s also called out on a lie as blatant (and stupid) as the denial a five-year-old caught with both hands in the cookie jar.
“I don’t worry about the Constitution on this, to be honest…” Hmmm.
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.
He doesn’t worry about his oath of office. He’s taken it twice. If it were a Republican, wouldn’t that be considered treason?
Of course he also lied about his vote on the healthcare bill itself, saying last summer,
“The purpose of having a public option — and that’s why I can’t vote for any bill that doesn’t have one — is that without the public option, people don’t have any place else to go, except for the insurance companies.” [emphasis mine]
But there’s one extenuating circumstance which excuses all his ignorance, his lies, and his flip-flops: He’s from Illinois. He does business the Chicago way. The President’s way. Which is rapidly becoming “business as usual” for America.
It’s up to us to make sure that “the Chicago way” does not end up being synonymous with “the American way.”
Rep. Hare is up for re-election this year. Let’s be sure to vote this ignorant, flip-flopping, lying, treasonous bum out. It’s the least we can do for our country.
