Rhetorical Backflip Of The Day

March 22nd, 2010at 08:52pm Posted by Eli

From David Vitter’s Stand With Me To Repeal Obamacare e-mail blast:

And, instead of listening to us, [my opponent Charlie Melancon] voted three times for last year’s Obama budget that included the very reconciliation tool being used to railroad Obamacare into law, knowing full well how it would be used.

So… Vitter is attacking a Representative for voting yes on a budget that was passed via reconciliation in the Senate? Which is what reconciliation is actually for?

Wow.

Honorable Mention goes to Randy Neugebauer:

Texas Republican Rep. Randy Neugebauer acknowledged Monday that he is the lawmaker who shouted out “baby killer” during a floor speech by Rep. Bart Stupak, an antiabortion Democrat whose vote was crucial to passing the Democratic healthcare bill Sunday evening.

(…)

Neugebauer said his exact words, referring to that agreement, were “it’s a baby killer.”

Right.  Because that’s totally a phrase people use.

(h/t Julia for the Neugebauer quote)
