Rep. John Boccieri (D)OH 16th district is this weeks ASSHAT of the week. He was quoted yesterday in saying
"“Having flown missions in and out of Iraq and Afghanistan, I know what it’s like to be in harm’s way. But I never imagined serving in Congress could feel the same. While Members of Congress, including myself, experience threats against our lives, our families, and our staff in the wake of the historic health care vote, I am calling on our leaders to be responsible with their remarks, especially those with a national microphone.
“We need to have a respectful conversation about contemporary issues, however once that discussion crosses into incendiary and dangerous remarks, it is time for Members of Congress to speak up.
“As passions run deep, violence will never solve our problems. I demand responsible leadership on both sides of the aisle because progress should not cower to the politics of fear.”
Personally knowing many Marines who have served as lost men in thier Conpanies in Iraq, his staement is absurd at any level. Of course this is the lefts mantra now, the same people who openly appluded the talks and films on the killing of President Bush now think that poeple who oppose the government takeover of our lives are dangerous and not patroti. Maybe the reprasenative should start looking for a real job since his yes vote on healthcare should have hom on the street this Novenmber.
