Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Schumer accidentally telegraphs talking points on conference call with press and fellow Democrats

When he’s not busy working on stealing Republicans’ identity, Chuck the Schmuck likes to pass the time rehearsing his talking points with his fellow Senate Democrats…unaware that the phone call is not muted and reporters are picking up his marching orders.  Details:

Moments before a conference call with reporters was scheduled to get underway on Tuesday morning, Charles E. Schumer of New York, the No. 3 Democrat in the Senate, apparently unaware that many of the reporters were already on the line, began to instruct his fellow senators on how to talk to reporters about the contentious budget process.

After thanking his colleagues — Barbara Boxer of California, Benjamin L. Cardin of Maryland, Thomas R. Carper of Delaware and Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut — for doing the budget bidding for the Senate Democrats, who are facing off against the House Republicans over how to cut spending for the rest of the fiscal year, Mr. Schumer told them to portray John A. Boehner of Ohio, the speaker of the House, as painted into a box by the Tea Party, and to decry the spending cuts that he wants as extreme. “I always use the word extreme,” Mr. Schumer said. “That is what the caucus instructed me to use this week.”

A minute or two into the talking-points tutorial, though, someone apparently figured out that reporters were listening, and silence fell.

Heh.  Schmucky robotically parrots the “caucus” talking points.  Obviously, the Dems are laying the groundwork for a government shutdown, and these talking points are merely practice for their justification for a shutdown: “These extremely extreme extremists are responsible.  Not just responsible, but extremely responsible!”

And right on cue, Babs Boxer seizes the opportunity to…well, to stick with the telegraphed message.  Isn’t that like a pitcher telling the batter “I’m going to throw a fastball down the middle” and then actually doing it?  She just pretended like no one had heard it!  😆

Then the conference call began in earnest, with the Democrats right on message.

“We are urging Mr. Boehner to abandon the extreme right wing,” said Ms. Boxer, urging the House to compromise on the scale of spending cuts and to drop proposed amendments that would deny federal financing for Planned Parenthood and for government agencies like the Environmental Protection Agency.

Those extremists!  Why, they don’t want to federally subsidize PP’s baby slaughtering or child sex trafficking!  The nerve!

In the end, I don’t think this hurts Schmucky that much.  After all, we’re talking reporters here…AKA Democrat constituents.

  1. Schumer is a jerky faced jerk-face. I only use jerky faced jerk-face because that is what the caucus instructed me to use this week.

  2. And, the demonrats continue to make the case that they are idiots. Now what needs to happen is for the other side to start laughing every time the demonrats use the word “extreme” to describe anythng, not just the Tea Party. Or, possibly, any time they say something illogical or that doesn’t make sense. Could be a lot of laughter up on the hill at the expense of the donkeys(aptly named).
