Republicans Are Clearly Happy to Destroy the Country…If They Can Get Political Leverage Out of It
On Sunday’s edition of “Fox News Sunday,” host Chris Wallace asked Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint if the Republican Party was ready to “shoot the hostage” and shut down the federal government over funding Obamacare.
Wallace asked DeMint, “But, Senator, what they say, you know, is you don’t take a hostage unless you’re prepared to shoot him. And if you’re going to go down this road, are you prepared to shut down the government? Because the Democrats are not going to go along with this.”
Unfortunately, DeMint dodged the question, and didn’t say whether or not Republicans were ready to “shoot the hostage,” in this case, the American people.
Jim DeMint refused to answer Chris Wallace’s question, but the real answer is that Republicans have been “shooting the hostage” ever since President Obama was first inaugurated. Their “hostage taking plans” were laid out back on the night of January 20, 2009, while the President and many others in Washington, D.C. were attending inaugural balls.
