- John Kerry on funding the Iraq War -
The always entertaining John Kerry just said the following on Meet the Press:
It’s the Tea Party’s downgrade. The debt downgrade was caused by the Tea Party.
About ten seconds later he said this:
Speaker John Boehner has tried to politicize this by accusing President Obama of causing the debt downgrade.
We are accustomed to hypocrisy in our politicians, but rarely do we ever find proof of it in a twenty second soundbite.
I am sure Mr. Kerry sees no inconsistency in these statements. He is about as self-aware as Michael Scott of the Dunder Mifflin Paper Company.
¹ Last week John Kerry appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe and with a straight face said that the media must start censoring the right (emphasis added):
And I have to tell you, I say this to you politely. The media in America has a bigger responsibility than it’s exercising today. The media has got to begin to not give equal time or equal balance to an absolutely absurd notion just because somebody asserts it or simply because somebody says something which everybody knows is not factual.
It doesn’t deserve the same credit as a legitimate idea about what you do. And the problem is everything is put into this tit-for-tat equal battle and America is losing any sense of what’s real, of who’s accountable, of who is not accountable, of who’s real, who isn’t, who’s serious, who isn’t?
Remember this whenever you hear Mr. Kerry and his friends on the left claim to be proponents of the first amendment. These folks are hypocrites. Just ask Don Imus, Dr. Laura and conservative talk radio hosts, all of whom at various times have been the target of the left’s agenda to silence speech it doesn’t like.
By the way, the left also opposed the recent Supreme Court decision in Citizens v. United States which expanded the protection of the first amendment by applying it to corporations.
