Gov. Ed Rendell: GOP ‘flat-out crazy’
Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, a Democrat, marked the unofficial kickoff to the fall campaign by branding the opposition as “fruit loops” and “flat-out crazy.”
Speaking at a Democratic National Committee rally in Philadelphia, Rendell highlighted Republican desires to repeal portions of the 14th Amendment and belief within some conservative circles that President Barack Obama was not born in this country as reason to not put the GOP in power.
“I sure as heck am worried about people who want to do away with the 14th Amendment,” said the term-limited Rendell. “I’m sure as heck worried about people who don’t think the president was born in the United States of America. I sure as heck am worried about people who think that workers are staying home because of unemployment benefits.
“They are nuts,” he said of Republicans. “They are flat-out crazy.”
After stating his case that Republicans are “crazy,” Rendell asked if voters were really “going to turn the reins of the Congress over to these people who are more and more dominated by the wacko right?”
