New DNC chair: Paul Ryan’s budget would be a “death trap for seniors,” a “tornado through nursing homes”

posted at 6:29 pm on April 6, 2011 by Allahpundit

Two clips for you via Mediaite and the Daily Caller respectively. See now why I thought choosing a Florida liberal for DNC chair was a master stroke? Any leftist can (and will!) accuse Paul Ryan of wanting to kill off the nation’s elderly en masse, but a leftist from Florida knows just what colorful details to add to make that talking point really speak to senior citizens. “Paul Ryan hates grandma” is boring; “Paul Ryan is a tornado tearing through a nursing home” is downright literary. I’m looking forward to seeing what vibrant new metaphors she works up to as she gets more comfortable in office. “Paul Ryan’s budget is like a heavy bookcase that’s fallen on our nation’s seniors, trapping them beneath.” “Don’t our nation’s seniors deserve better than a lethal dose of austerity from Paul Ryan’s budgetary medication?” “After all our nation’s seniors have done for America, Paul Ryan’s heartless reforms are tantamount to forgetting to call them on their birthday.” I know you can do better, Debbie!

Go read Ace for a reminder of what sort of budgetary medication Dr. Wasserman-Schultz voted to dispense last year. Eighteen more months of this, guys. Eighteen. More. Months.

That Long Island princess knows squat about budgeting, believes money from government is free money, and cares not one bit about seniors.

As DNC Chair, didn’t she get the Memo about toning down the rhetoric?

Oh, yeah, that was only for Conservatives. My bad.

Because the GOP leaders suck in the self defense department, Boehner will probably cry and the Media will carry her lies as the Gospel!

President Obama’s top Muslim envoy has been overseas encouraging devotion to Islam, including in terror hot spots like Afghanistan. In fact, Rashad Hussain, U.S. special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference, just returned from Afghanistan, where he told locals the antidote to Islamic violence “is Islam itself.”

Paul Ryan is a tornado tearing through a nursing home but the democrats 500 billion dollar reduction in Medicare is awesome!

Because that $500 billion – that’s with a capital B - you and the Democrats voted to take out of Medicare last year was what?

A vitamin B12 shot?

$500 Billion buys a lot of Fancy Feast…

catmman on April 6, 2011 at 6:41 PM

Well, she is certainly not giving up on Expansionist Rhetoric.

She mentions “end of life care” as if that hasn’t already been erased by Obamacare’s bureaucratic mumbo-jumbo. And talking about the needs of the greatest generation: bad news Deb, they’re all pretty much in their eighties and nineties. Which means they’re not a large demographic for your pandering. Should have stuck with “tornadoes thru the hippie communes” or some such; much bigger demo. Or not, depending on how many moved to Babs and Pelosio’s districts.

Robert17 on April 6, 2011 at 6:42 PM

I’m confused. I thought Reagan killed off most poor people in the 80s and Bush finished the job in the 00s.

Where are all these new poor people coming from that Paul Ryan will now kill?

angryed on April 6, 2011 at 6:43 PM

Good thing she is getting it out of her system now. Of course she may be just warming up.

Debbie certainly knows how to pile on the bovine excrement. And here I thought Joey Biden was the #1 cowpie thrower.

I wonder if gorebull warming will be causing all these tornadoes. Will insurance companies be rasing rates after repairing the damage of the nursing homes. Will any other structure be in danger of be damaged.

Get with the program Ed. To the left if you are against Obama care you are for people dying for lack of medical treatment. (See Alan Grayson’s rant a few years ago)

Now if you vote to cut the deficit then its all about making the poor go hungry and leaving the elderly to die.

The left has always pulled this stuff.

Compassion should never come from a government agency. That is the talking point conservatives never get.

William Amos on April 6, 2011 at 6:49 PM

To what end? Like this is some new evidence that the media or Democrats are lying hypocritical unserious a$$clowns? Like *this* will be the final straw and people will start to believe it, or change their ways, or… ?

10 years from now, some future Democrat will say something exactly like DWS did (as they have been saying routinely for years already), and someone exactly like us will say, “remember this when the media starts…” (as we have been saying routinely for years). And future Republicans (if there are any) will ‘tsk tsk’, wish the Democrats wouldn’t behave that way, then tromp down to the polling booth to lose another election to the criminal Democrats (as has been happening for years).

Why is compassion only suppose to come from government and not people ?

How does it help people get off welfare by offering them more welfare ?

Why do we force our elderly to live off of social security if it really doesnt take care of them ?

If entitlements help monorities why are blacks always amoung the most poor in America ?

How does a high speed train help an unemployed blue collar worker ?

How many rounds of golf does it take to make a decision ?

Problem is the Democrats use this type of language because it works. If you’re going to scare seniors, it’s easy to do so. They’re the least likely people to read blogs or other alternative media. They’re most likely to watch Katie Couric who just parrots the DNC talking points.

(Yes I know, not every senior falls into the category, but as a group they do)

The comments about Ryan wanting seniors to die? Your just phoning it in with that one. It’s insulting that you just don’t care enough to blather your usual goonybird absurdities that only can come from someone who is mentally unbalanced. You didn’t even net one senior with that half bakes but tired propaganda. Are you on medication that dulls your usual incoherence? It shows

Liberals Twist Sarcastic Rush Riff Into a Call for Segregated Buses!
September 18, 2009
********************
====================

And at that time we were in the middle of the budget debate, the school lunch cuts and the
************************************************************

Democrats were calling around saying that Republicans were engaging in their usual stuff of cutting Social Security and Medicare and Medicaid and they run around saying that food stamps and senior citizens were soon going to have to make the choice of eating dog food and being able to buy medicine or eating real food and not buying medicine.
************************************************************

So all this is banging around Washington the whole week before I get there. So I open up the speech by thanking the GOPAC people for inviting me. “It’s really great to be here and, I’ll tell you what, I’m so happy the Democrats are doing what they’re doing because I have heard them and Iwant you people to know: I love my mother and I love old people.
========

************************************************************
“And since the Democrats have told me what’s going to happen, what I have done is I went out and I bought my mom a new can opener so that she can get the dog food easier when she has to eat it,” and the place busted up laughing.
************************************************************

Well, now, this was televised on C-SPAN. Pat Schroeder went to the floor of the House the next day and said, “This is what it’s come to! This is it! Rush Limbaugh actually said he’s going to buy his mother a can opener so she can have dog food. Wow!” I could not believe it. These people are humorless. This guy Potok, in addition to being ugly, has no humor whatsoever.
