Before today I didn't even know who this guy was, so i guess I shouldn't be surprised he's from the liberal bastion that is San Francisco where adulterous mayors illegally marry gays, poor people suffer and stem cell research reigns. Yet, you'd think a politician would know better than to allow Rosie O'Donnell and the rest of the loons on the George Soros-run far Left to edit his public remarks. But since Stark is a liberal perhaps he just knows no better because liberals just can't make debate their points without getting nasty and making personal attacks. Disagree with them and they get downright vile. It's just the way of the world for the same hypocrites who claim to speak for "tolerance", but in turn are the most intolerant bunch when it comes to people who dare to hold different viewpoints from theirs.
WASHINGTON (AP) — A House Democrat accused Republicans Thursday of sending troops to Iraq to "get their heads blown off for the president's amusement."
The outburst from Rep. Pete Stark as the House debated a children's health bill drew immediate condemnation from Republicans who demanded he retract it.
Instead Stark, known for his liberal views and volatile temperament, issued a statement saying Republicans should apologize for voting against an expansion of children's health care.
By a vote of 273-156 the House failed Thursday to override President Bush's veto of legislation to expand the popular State Children's Health Insurance Program.
Stark, who's in his 18th term representing the liberal East Bay near San Francisco, took to the floor to accuse Republicans of funding the Iraq war but not children's health.
"You don't have money to fund the war or children," Stark declared. "But you're going to spend it to blow up innocent people if we can get enough kids to grow old enough for you to send to Iraq to get their heads blown off for the President's amusement."
Liberal comedian Joy Behar calls Michelle Malkin a "selfish bitch" because Malkin supports President Bush's veto of SCHIP. Rosie O'Donnell throws up a picture of Elizabeth Hasselbeck with devil horns on at a recent concert? Why? Because she's still mad at Hasselbeck's conservative views. One can only imagine the cheers the MoveOn heads gave Stark after he spoke and Lord knows how much dough Soros has "invested" in the loon from the Bay. Yet, for his disgraceful remarks on the House floor today, Pete Stark not only owes the President and our troops an apology, but he should never be allowed in the halls of the House again. If the GOP has any guts they should do everything they can to not only make Stark forever regret his vile remarks, but condemn every Democrat choosing to remain silent on the matter. Bush Derangement Syndrome didn't work for John Kerry and the hateful Left back in '04, now the President can't even run for office again and liberals are showing us four years later that they still haven't learned a damn thing. I swear, most of the time they're their own worse enemy.
