Someone could have a full time job tracking the nutty things Democrats say. Here are just two examples.
Via The Daley Gator comes this ripe quote from our Vice President:
Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday bashed voting rights requirements — calling them “immoral, callous” — and warned of political consequences for those who try to impose barriers to casting a ballot.
“To me it is the most immoral, callous thing that can be done, the idea of making it more difficult to vote,” Biden said at the annual gala dinner of the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, a minority-focused public policy organization…
Heaven forbid people should be required to prove who they say they are before they vote.
But Sheriff Joe was outdone in nuttiness by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee. Hold on to your seats for this.
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee took to the House floor Monday night and implied that the right to health care and education exists in the Constitution because it says so right there in The Declaration of Independence. If that sounds confusing it should as the Congresswoman mixed up (or has no knowledge of) this nation’s founding documents.
“One might argue that education and health care fall into those provisions of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” she said.
Sorry Ms. Lee but the life, liberty pursuit of happiness “provision” as you described it is in the Declaration of Independence not in the constitution. Perhaps they didn’t teach you the difference in elementary school social studies, or perhaps that day you were pulled out of class for remedial shoes-tying class.
Ms. Jackson Lee added, “I think that what should be continuously emphasized is the president’s leadership on one single point: that although health care was not listed per se in the Constitution, it should be a constitutional right.”
It seems that the more the Democrats’ policies hurt the American people, the more nutty they become in their assertions. Oh well, I suppose it’s a good thing for them that there are always plenty of crime stories to keep the public distracted.
