Another Whiny Loser Republican Calls Us Racist Demagogues

posted at 7:41 pm on July 9, 2010 by Jimmie Bise, Jr

Help me out here, soon to be unemployed Congressman Inglis. What you’re really saying is that demagoguery isn’t leadership when people you don’t like do it, but your demagoguery? Well that’s just fine. Does that about sum it up?

[Bob Inglis] cited a claim made famous by Palin that the Democratic health care bill would create “death panels” to decide whether elderly or sick people should get care.

“There were no death panels in the bill … and to encourage that kind of fear is just the lowest form of political leadership. It’s not leadership. It’s demagoguery,” said Inglis…

“I think we have a lot of leaders that are following those (television and talk radio) personalities and not leading,” he said. “What it takes to lead is to say, ‘You know, that’s just not right.’”

As it happens that’s exactly what South Carolina voters said to Inglis when they voted more than 2-1 against him last month. Instead of praising them as leaders, though, he whipped out the race cards and whipped them around like he was dealing the world’s fastest poker hand.

Inglis said he was shocked during the health care votes as he watched protesters jeering Rep. John Lewis, a Georgia Democrat who was beaten as a leading civil rights activist in the 1960s.

Inglis said he was too far away during the jeering incident to hear whether the protesters shouted racial epithets, as Lewis and other black lawmakers have claimed. But Inglis said the behavior was threatening and abusive.

“I caught him at the door and said, ‘John, I guess you’ve been here before,’” Inglis said.

Inglis, 50, who calls himself a Jack Kemp disciple because he has emphasized outreach to minorities as the late Republican congressman did, thinks racism is a part of the vitriol directed at President Barack Obama.

“I love the South. I’m a Southerner. But I can feel it,” he said.

I am about sick to death of these whiny Republicans who, when ejected from office like a tomato from a catapult by voters who have had enough of their spend-happy ways, turn around and cry like a bunch of babies with soggy diapers. Like those soggy-diapered babies (and doesn’t “Soggy-Diaper Republican” have a nice ring to it?), Inglis wants everyone to cater to his whims. In his world, he gets to tell us how it’s going to be and we meekly sit back and take it. That worldview has no place at all in the Republican Party. Heck, it doesn’t have a place in America.

If Inglis really thought that “death panels” was an extreme characterization of what lay inside Obamacare, he could have fought it vigorously in the arena of ideas. He didn’t because he was too busy pushing for his very own bill that, like Obamacare, would have forced you to buy health insurance whether you wanted to or not. Inglis claimed to be “shocked” by the anger that faced at town halls but he conveniently left out the part where he stoked the anger by accusing people who disagree with him as Glenn Beck-watching drones incapable of thinking for themselves.

We’re better off being rid of Bob Inglis and his petty, sniveling sense of entitlement. Maybe he can have a little lie-down in a pastel-colored, daisy-printed room to settle his jangled nerves.

Get a real job, chump. And good luck doing it in the post-ObamaCare hiring environment.

Cicero43 on July 9, 2010 at 7:48 PM

Another whiney one bites the dust … I wonder what there is about representing people he didn’t get.

So why appoint Dr Death Panel to oversee Medicare and Medicare in the dark of night. Seems like in order to insure people knew there were no death panels, you would want open hearings where it was all laid out in the sunlight. But for some reason, even the Democrats didn’t want to do that.

hmmmm I wonder what the problem is other than lying.

You know what, Bob Inglis?

It just isn’t right that you won’t let your wife go door-to-door in “da hood” selling Avon after dark! That’s just not right! That kind of fear as no place in our national debate! That’s NOT leadership, Bob!

Bob, since you are a Southerner, and can “feel” the racism, I imagine you’ll be delivering pizzas after dark in the non-White neighborhoods only. I admire that, Bob. You now have the life expectancy of a machine gunner in Vietnam, but damn, you practice what you preach!

A real American Hero!

bluemarlin on July 9, 2010 at 8:24 PM

As a Southerner, I am sick of ‘Southerners’ calling me a racist because I don’t agree with their politics. What Inglis uttered are fighting words in the South. You know where you can stick it, Mr. Inglis, and if you want to meet me behind the woodshed, I am at your service, Sir.

JimP on July 9, 2010 at 8:26 PM

“I caught him at the door and said, ‘John, I guess you’ve been here before,’” Inglis said.

…If you mean making baseless accusations and accusing people of racism simply because they disagree with your policies….then yes Inglis..they have been there before…and now so have you.

….so tell us genius….are you going to rebuke your democratic friends for lying to the American people when they stated the Health Care Bill would be:

…deficit neutral


……..our premiums would not go up


…………our quality of care would not go down


…………… we would be able to keep our current Health Care provider

………………..and the tax increases on the middle class that we were promised would not happen.

……..would love to see your whiny a$$ address this all in the spirit of:
“I think we have a lot of leaders that are following those (television and talk radio) personalities and not leading,” he said. “What it takes to lead is to say, ‘You know, that’s just not right.’”

…real leaders don;t have to lie to get their policies enacted Mr. self righteous….

We’re better off being rid of Bob Inglis and his petty, sniveling sense of entitlement.

I attended one of his town halls late last summer and heard his anti-Beck pronouncement for myself. What was more offensive than his opinion was his delivery: weak-kneed sarcasm of the most pathetic kind.

I voted against him a few weeks ago because of his hypocrisy. He ran for 3 terms on a platform of term limits. He called himself a citizen politician and promised to serve only 3 terms. He changed his tune with term #4 and has become a Lindsey Graham-ite ever since.

Goodbye and good riddance.

Bob was my congressman and i am so glad he was defeated a few week ago.When he first got elected in 94 he was a good conservative but like a lot of them he caught pantomimic fever.He did not just get defeated a few weeks ago he got demolish 78% to 28%.Just last year on our local talk station he said he had to support the climate change bill because his children said they would not vote for him if he did not support it.He has turn into a Lindsey Graham clone.So Bob good by ,farewell and Amen thank God your gone you Rino.

GarandFan on July 9, 2010 at 10:16 PM

I don’t even know this guy, Bob Inglis.
But it’s clear why he lost in the primary.

I guess any given “Soggy-Diaper Republican” would be shocked as he watched protesters jeering Rep. John Lewis, a Georgia Democrat, take a path that Congressmen don’t normally take just so they could thumb their noses at those who were there to oppose Obama Doesn’t Care.

J_Crater on July 9, 2010 at 10:16 PM

It felt GREAT!!! to vote for Bob’s opponent both in the primary and run off

Sadly it will be another 4 years before I can bestow the same honor on Graham. I would even seriously consider voting for Alvin Greene over Graham. Seriously. I like his idea of making little action figures of himself. Most of Washington feels that way too. He just has the guts to say it. Can you imagine what they would do if his dolls started selling like hot cakes? They would trip all over themselves having their own dolls make.

Laura Curtis on July 10, 2010 at 11:53 AM

Inglis is a RINO. He’s not smart enough to realize why he was “flushed” from office. The “death panel” this idiot referred Palin as lying about are actually “end of life counselors”. Just because Obama uses terminology to deceive his intent, does not change that intent. Rationing is a part of this healthcare reform as Gerwick made that very clear from his first statement. Inglis is just another idiot that can’t comprehend reality.

volsense on July 10, 2010 at 12:05 PM

The Death Panel metaphor is still reverberating through Washington DC.

We see now who Inglis’s constituents agree with, and it ain’t Bob.
