Democrats Fightin’ Amongst Themselves

donkey-fightsI read this on Redstate.com and just had to repost it.  It centers around comments made by Carolyn Kilpatrick (D-Mich.) regarding the blue dog democrats opposition to a public option in the health care legislation in the house.

Kilpatrick: Public Option the Only Option for Blacks

Posted by Mark Impomeni, Thursday, July 30th at 5:30PM EDT

There’s a revealing quote buried inside Politico’s account of a revolt by liberal members of the House Democratic caucus over the deal between Rep. Henry Waxmam (D-CA) and four members of the Blue Dog Caucus. Liberals are upset that the deal effectively guts the public option in President Obama’s healthcare takeover. And as is usually the case, when liberals get upset, the truth about the contempt that they harbor for their core constituencies begins to show. How else can this comment by Rep. Carolyn Kilpatrick be explained?

At one point, Carolyn Kilpatrick (D-Mich.), a former Congressional Black Caucus chairwoman, expressed outrage that conservatives would insist on significant cuts and a weakening of the public option, arguing that many of the Blue Dogs were letting down their black constituents, who make up 25 percent to 40 percent of their voters, in some instances.”

Yeah, that’s right. Opposing the public options on cost grounds betrays blacks. Because, you know, all blacks are destined to be on the public dole, right Congresswoman?

Interesting.  Democrats fighting amongst themselves.  Sounds fine to me.

Of course, this is just my opinion.
