Oh My: Moonbat Liberal Henry Waxman Gloats: The Good News Is That The Democrats Who Get Slaughtered In November Are the "Most Difficult" Ones To "Pull Into Line"

Addition by subtraction!

I believe Eric "Otter" Stratton had a keen observation about the perils of trusting someone.

This quote would usually, I think, be inflammatory and cause all sorts of problems within the raucus caucus.

But now? Gotta think that the fact that it's true, and that these "difficult" Democrats now depend on the less-difficult ones to help them get lobbying jobs, makes it less of a thing that it otherwise would have been.

Still... his gloating over screwing over more moderate Democrats and giggling about their impending ouster is unseemly.

“I think a lot of the House seats we’re going to lose are those who have been the toughest for the Democrats to pull into line — the Democrats that have been the most difficult,” Waxman said.

Waxman, one of the Democratic Party’s stalwarts, is simply voicing publicly what many in his party have said privately as the reality of the looming November elections sets in. If Democrats retain a majority, it will be smaller but more cohesive.

He's "simply" doing that? Protective much?

As Waxman sees it, the fractious coalition of Democrats that House leaders have cobbled together to pass sweeping healthcare and energy bills is not markedly different from the bipartisanship of the past, when Democrats partnered with centrist and liberal Republicans, whom Waxman says are “practically nonexistent at the moment.”

“We’ve been trying to get the Democratic conservatives together with the rest of the Democratic Party, so in effect we’ve gotten bipartisan support among Democrats in the House,” the chairman said with a laugh. “Now we’ll have to work on genuine bipartisanship in the future.”

Laugh. Giggle.

Hey wait -- I thought they were trying to be bipartisan and it was the GOP acting as the Party of No...?

Here we have Henry Waxman admitting that the only "bipartisanship" he practiced was liberal Democrats offering concessions to less-liberal Democrats -- no actual bipartisanship extended to the other actual party.

You'll never see mention of this quote again.

After all, he was "simply" publicly voicing what many Democrats concede in private (but which the MFM refuses to report).
