The Democrats start growing a backbone?

I’ve been enjoying watching Alan Grayson take the Party of No to task, and wondered if other Dems would catch on. It looks like they might be.

In response to Republicans attacking Obama for winning the Nobel Peace Prize, the DNC sent out the following email:

The Republican Party has thrown in its lot with the terrorists – the Taliban and Hamas this morning – in criticizing the President for receiving the Nobel Peace prize. Republicans cheered when America failed to land the Olympics and now they are criticizing the President of the United States for receiving the Nobel Peace prize – an award he did not seek but that is nonetheless an honor in which every American can take great pride – unless of course you are the Republican Party. The 2009 version of the Republican Party has no boundaries, has no shame and has proved that they will put politics above patriotism at every turn. It’s no wonder only 20 percent of Americans admit to being Republicans anymore – it’s an embarrassing label to claim.

Of course, now the RNC is complaining about the DNC equating them with the Taliban and Hamas. However, Rush Limbaugh even stated that he he is on the same side as the Taliban. Seriously!

Our president is a worldwide joke. Folks, do you realize something has happened here that we all agree with the Taliban and Iran about and that is he doesn’t deserve the award. Now that’s hilarious, that I’m on the same side of something that the Taliban, and that we all are on the same side as the Taliban.

And it isn’t the first time the Republicans have tried to be more like the Taliban.

Personally, I find it hilarious that Limbaugh can call Obama a worldwide joke after eight years of Dubya.

    I for one am not on the same side as the Taliban. I do not believe in chopping off hands because people went to vote. I do not believe in taking woman away from their jobs as doctors, nurses and teaches. I do not believe in women having no education. I do not believe in women staying completely covered in public. I do not believe in women having no heath care, dying in child birth. I do not belief in terrorism, blowing people up in the market place. No, Rush Limbaugh, we are not all like the Taliban. You are like the Taliban. You like to buy your woman. You hate black. No, Rush Limbaugh. I’m not a bit like you. I belief in the country that my ancestors fought for in the Revolution. I believe in “one nation under God with liberty and Justice for all.” Not that “I am on loan from God with liberty for Rush Limbaugh and to hell with Liberty and Justice for all”. No, I’m not the same as you. I come from a long line of fighters for our country: Revolution, Civil War, both north and south, Spanish American War, World War II, Vietnam. No, Rush, you and I have disagreed since you went on the air. I am embarrassed by you as saying you are a part of the United States. You are part of the party of “NO”

  2. I concur with Eva’s sentiments, except for “embarrassed.”

    I’m disgusted.

    I think that when he said “we” he was referring to his listeners, but I might be giving him the benefit of the doubt, which he doesn’t deserve.

    Limbaugh calling Obama a ‘worldwide joke’ after the international community sends him a big “we love you” (Nobel Peace Prize.) Yeah, that makes a lot of sense.

    The stuff Limbaugh says is so crazy – it’s hard to believe there are people that buy into it.
