Today we are going to play, “They really said that.” Our first example comes from a meeting of morons making asinine statements. Meet:
Conservative Sen. Jim DeMint who stressed an unyielding agenda for Republicans during the opening speech today at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).
DeMint, a South Carolina senator and conservative extremist, made one thing perfectly clear; the idea of compromising with Democrats during a time in which political strife has dominated Capitol Hill is out.
"We don’t have shared goals with the Democrats,” Dimwit declared.
After his stinging losses to Rick Santorum on Tuesday, Mitt Romney has responded with this message: He’s the only Washington outsider left in the race and, thus, the only one capable of changing its culture.
"I happen to believe that the American people recognize that if we’re going to see change in Washington, we’ve got to see some new faces," Romney said at a campaign event in Atlanta. "I haven’t spent any time working in Washington. I spent my life out in the real economy."
Say what? Whose an outsider? Romney’s numerous Washington connections are the reason he’s running for the presidency.
I could go on, but I’m sure you have the idea. The hot air out there could launch a fleet of balloons!
