Fester has previously documented the Democrats’ growing disdain for the American public. To recap: we’ve heard unions call for “taking out” the SOBs in the Tea Party; President Øbama fancying himself a middle-class warrior and calling for what sounded a lot like a race war; Van Jones threatening widespread revolt; and Roseanne Barr saying bankers should be sent to reeducation camps and possibly beheaded. Along the way, we’ve experienced the offensive hippie offensive known as Occupy Whatever. These events range from ridiculous to disturbing. But the most serious development of all has been the emerging Democrat theme that voters are standing in the way of real progress, y’all. And today we learn that the Dems’ theme continues to develop.
As we’ve noted before, Obama’s former OMB Director Peter Orszag recently wrote a column in The New Republic proposing that we “counter the gridlock of our political institutions by making them a bit less democratic.” Then, a couple of weeks later, North Carolina’s Democrat Governor Deb Perdue proposed suspending Congressional elections for two years — presumably so that Congress could enact more cramdown legislation without having to worry about We the People.
And now, as reported in The Hill, we have Democrat Steny Hoyer lamenting that the voters have made very, very naughty decisions and are now receiving their well-deserved spanking:
“The American people have every right to be angry [and] disappointed by the performance of the Congress,” Hoyer told reporters in the Capitol. “Of course, the American people have also elected people with hard stances, so that to some degree the American people are realizing the results of their votes.
“If elections have consequences — which I think they do — some of those consequences are getting what you vote for,” Hoyer added. “In this case, many people voted for people who thought compromise was not something that they ought to participate in.”
Translation: “Stupid voters! Next time vote for more liberals so that we don’t have to deal with such … such principle!” Read the whole story here.
So by their own admission, Democrats despise voters — well, except the dead ones. We’ll hear more of this elitist drivel over the next 13 months. Let’s all give Steny his wish and end the gridlock by ejecting any remaining leftist bilge from the halls of Congress.
