Dems don't get it:
We're proud to be the "Party of NO"

Every one of the polls--every one--is telling these politicians in Washington "NO" to passing the health care bill. But they aren't listening. They tell us, as if we were children, that they know better, that a few years down the line, when we've all gotten used to this bill, we're really going to like it. Hell No.

The latest WSJ poll says that only 32% think passing the bill is a good idea.
The latest ABC News poll: 51% say passing the bill is a bad idea.
Gallup: 49% oppose the bill.
Rasmussen: 56% oppose the bill.

Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) defended the Party of No: “We’re accused of being the party of no,” he said. But “no is a wonderful word. When your child is misbehaving, you say no. When someone’s stealing liberty, you say no…Saying no at the right time saves lives. Saying no at the right time saves money…Saying no at the right time saves liberty.”

The rhetoric in the Senate as these assclowns work to pass this craptastik health "reform" bill would be hilarious if the issue weren't so serious. The Leftists have "calling names" down to an art form.

Here's Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) giving us one for the books as he talks about passing the $636 billion Pentagon spending bill; he said the deficit "mushroomed" under Bush "because these fiscally conservative, flinty-eyed, styptic-hearted Republicans engaged in a war that they wouldn't pay for.

Then there's Sen. Sholden Whitehouse (D-RI), who tops even Durbin's overblown rhetoric.

“Voting ‘no’ and hiding from the vote are the same result. Those of us on the floor see it. It was clear the three of them who did not cast their yes votes until all 60 Senate votes had been tallied and it was clear that the result was a foregone conclusion. And why? Why all this discord and discourtesy, all this unprecedented destructive action? All to break the momentum of our new young president.

They are desperate to break this president. They have ardent supporters who are nearly hysterical at the very election of President Barack Obama. The birthers, the fanatics, the people running around in right-wing militia and Aryan support groups, it is unbearable to them that President Barack Obama should exist. That is one powerful reason. It is not the only one.”

Let's see, did he miss anything? Running around in white sheets, maybe? What an embarrassment this clown is. Here's the video, h/t Gateway Pundit.

And here's Ed Morrissey's [HotAir] answer to this fool. Beautiful.

When an idiot can’t answer an argument, he tosses ad hominem bombs in an attempt to silence his critics and provide cover for his intellectual deficiencies. When a politician does it, we should all wonder why he’s unable to provide support for his position. In Whitehouse’s case, it may be either that he’s a foul-mouthed fool educated far beyond his mental capacity to process the information, or that he’s defending an indefensible position and has nothing better to offer. Or, in Whitehouse’s case, it could easily be both.
