Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ): “Negotiating With Republicans Is Almost Like Negotiating With Terrorists” (Video)


Oh that Democrat civility …

No wonder Democrats can’t call it a war on terror and feel the need to treat all Americans in airports like they are terrorists … liberal Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) stated during a press conference that negotiating with Republicans is almost like negotiating with terrorists. Really, it is like negotiating with terrorist, really? Where is the comparison of saying that the GOP is like Nazis or calling them racists as well?  How sad that Democrats are more concerned with partisan politics and talking points for 2012 election than the American people and jobs.

Senator Menendez in an over the top partisan manner took aim at Republicans for opposing his party’s plan to extend the Bush-era tax cuts only for the middle class, accusing them of holding the cuts “hostage.” Since when is preventing raising taxes during a recession and a jobless economic recovery a bad thing? A note to the American public, raising taxes on anyone during a recession holds the America economy hostage.


ABC News’ Jonathan Karl reports: Did Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) just compare Republicans to terrorists?

Well, not really.  But he did compare negotiating with Republicans to negotiating with terrorists.

At a press conference with fellow Democrats, Menendez lashed out at Republicans for opposing Democratic efforts to extend the Bush tax cuts for the middle class while allowing the tax cuts for the wealthy to expire.

He accused the Republicans of holding middle class tax cuts “hostage” to tax cuts for the wealthy.    That’s a common Democratic line, but Menendez took the analogy a step further.

“Do you allow yourself to be held hostage and get something done for the sake of getting something done, when in fact it might be perverse in its ultimate results? It’s almost like the question of do you negotiate with terrorists.”

House Republican Whip Eric Cantor responded, ” Um…No Senator, it is not. Not at all.” How clueless and out of touch could a party be to so trivialize terrorism and how terrorists deal with others. What an offense to the American public. No wonder Democrats suffered massive defeat in the 2010 midterm elections.

      Bobby M. is representative of those who would
      rule the world if given the chance. So many of
      these self-proclaimed mentally elite are simply
      ‘mental’. We must have a very powerful vacuum
      cleaner running in 2012 to suck these suckers
      off our payroll.

      On behalf of liberals everywhere I want to apologize for Sen Menendez’s comments. Negotiating with Republicans is NOT like negotiating with terrorists.

      It’s like attempting to reason with retards.

      See? Civility is back in style!
      SM: Oh you are just so funny, typical A$$hole liberal. So you use the word “retard” as a negative? Nice. Just like your President who mocked Special Olympics. What makes you idiots such wrotten POS?

      BTW TBogg, get used to it after the new Congress is put in place, you Libs are toast.

      Wait until 2012 when you lose more House seats, more Senate seats and the Presidency. You will just be a joy to deal with. Should we put y’all on suicide watch?

      Humphrey Bogart became covered with leeches
      pulling the African Queen thru the swampy part
      of the river. Uncle Sam is covered with leeches
      too. Political Parasites and entitlement excesses
      are sucking the blood out of our Country.
