Republican Tom Coburn of Oklahoma and Democrat Chuck Schumer of New York say they will sit together during B.O.’s State of the Union address.
Isn’t that sweet…
Schumer says, it’s a symbolic move but one he hopes ‘will help set a more civil tone.’
This coming from one of the most partisan hacks the Democrat party has ever known. Politicians really do think you are stupid.
I mentioned this idiocy in an earlier post dealing with John McCain’s latest butt-nuzzling of Obama.
My advice to the Republicans who fall for this charade is – don’t wear a watch and keep your wallet in your front pocket!
By way of Sister Toldjah, here are more of the losers who signed on to this childish ploy.
Senate signers are as follows: Sen. Begich (D-Alaska), Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif), Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.), Sen. Kristen Gilibrand (D-N.Y.), Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.), Sen. Jack Reed (D-R.I.), Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), and Udall for the Democrats and Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.), Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska, and Sen. Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) for the Republicans. In the House, all nine signers are Democrats.
Notice that all the Republicans are the usual RINOs who played a big role in getting us into the mess that we are in.
Is Civility-in-Chief, going to throw in something about tolerance and civility in his State of the Union speech? Let’s hope not, but it seems the Democrat are intent on establishing the play ground rules for the next congress – be nice to the President!
