Less than two weeks after one of the nation's deadliest school shootings, the No.2 Democrat in the U.S. House, Steny Hoyer, compared Republican tactics for dealing with the nation's debt limit to someone threatening to shoot a child hostage.
"It's somewhat like taking your child hostage and saying to somebody else, 'I'm going to shoot my child if you don't do what I want done.' You don't want to shoot your child. There's no Republican leader that wants to default on our debt, that I've talked to," Hoyer said at a Capitol Hill press conference.
Hoyer's comments came in response to a question about the Treasury Department's notice that the nation was approaching its debt limit. He criticized Republicans for previous resistance to raising the debt ceiling and used the gun analogy to argue that the issue should not be part of the negotiations involving the fiscal cliff.
The repubs are going to have to start slinging some mud back in their face or continue looking weak to the nuts that elected the fraud. See you on the battle field.
The media has no sense of right and wrong to let him get away with such a statement! I wonder if he has a weapons' permit?
Hoyer is just another phony democrat who thinks he's intelligent. The fact he's been elected tells me even his electorate is of the same mold.
Trying to use fear to get me to do something you want is like adding gasoline to a house fire. It just pisses me off even more.
By the way, Hoyer, take the flag off your lapel. You communists aren't American.
No! we do not need to sling mud! We need to sling Facts!
The Rabid, Radical, Left will sling all the mud and lies. We, the calm, Right know how to tell the truth.
We love honesty and truth and God.
We have our Book that teaches all truth.
Let the truth prevail.
Does Stenny Hoyer have a permit to carry?
The part about waiting for the GOP to do something Patriotic is past.With some young Tea Party as a exception the GOP is dead and buried,their heads stuck in the corruption trough with their liberal brethren.The truth is that it is the time to recruit and educate all you can.Shut off all donations to the GOP.Instead support with money and efforts the Tea Party and sites like this.We have no free press,we have no judicial system,we have no legislative system.Jobs are going away,food is going up,TSA is looming large,and all the illegal activities of this administration are never addressed.So if we are going to have any say at all it will have to be from the TP who both sides hate.This story about a true socialist like Hoyer using a child murder scenario in describing our legislative process is the level of disrespect they show to the American people.All the while we are supposed to find some sympathy for the brain dead"OBama Phone Lady" on their side.This is a dog and pony show to get us to be distracted while they install a Communist Regime.You should be active ,there should be no time left in your actions to decide ,just do it!!If you don't like you tea party group tough! suck it up make it better ,the next few months are critical.
Robert you are so right (correct) in the things you said. Thank you
Very good points Robert..we have to fight fire with fire and Hoyer should be where they start right now today. You are right about cutting funds to this republican party they are useless when it comes to standing up for conservatives that support them .
WHAT A MORONIC MAD MAN !!!!! Quick ! take his fancy ass office pen, pencil set away from him, before he signs something! He's going to kill us all with his support of OBAMA !!!!
I swear MANY DEMS. / LIBERALS HAVE GOT TO BE EATING THOSE FUNKY MUSHROOMS !!!! WHAT A CRAZED MANIAC !
Republicans should now be all over this clown and embarass him . Call him out or we'll throw you republicans out.
Dan ...... I so, agree with you. The G.O.P. NEEDS TO DO WHAT ROCKY DID IN THE MOVIE ... CHASE THAT DAMNED CHICKEN AROUND FOR A WHILE, UNTIL IT GET'S TIRED, AND WE GET A STRANGLE HOLD, ON THEM!
Thanks Freedom .....If any of you are on Twitter then post Hoyers remarks on Twitter and call for republicans to defend us. Twitter is a good way to connect with the leaders and prominent people and get our word out which is " We won't take this anymore " .
