Yea, This is Productive … Iowa Democrat Senator Tom Harkin Says Politics Have Reached Civil War Levels
Good grief, Really?
Just how desperate and off the hinges are Democrats these days? Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) said on the Senate floor on Friday as a possible government shutdown loomed that the United States was at a danger point in American history and it was “every bit as dangerous as the break-up of the Union before the Civil War.” Wow, really? Talk about your Boy Who Cried Wolf exaggerations. What about the other 17 government shut down since 1976, were they Civil-War like as well? But what else can we expect from Democrats when the current occupants of the White House refer to Republicans as terrorists as Barack Obama actually talk to real terrorists?
Sorry, but all Democrats rule by trying to scare and uniformed people.
As the clock ticks down toward a possible government shutdown, Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, isn’t holding back.
On the Senate floor before 10 a.m. Friday, the senator gave a speech describing how American politics have reached the level at which “a small group of willful men and women who have a certain ideology”—read: the tea party and Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas—have been able to take over the congressional budget debate in the last week. “Since they can’t get their way,” Harkin said, “they’re going to create this confusion and discourse and hope that the public will be so mixed up in who is to blame for this, that they’ll blame both sides.”
This isn’t just congressional business as usual, Harkin said. It’s much, much more dire:
It’s dangerous. It’s very dangerous. I believe, Mr. President, we are at one of the most dangerous points in our history right now. Every bit as dangerous as the break-up of the Union before the Civil War.
