Step aside, Joe Biden. Steny Hoyer has made the most insensitive, stupid comment of 2012.

“It’s somewhat like taking your child hostage and saying to somebody else, ‘I’m going to shoot my child if you don’t do what I want done.’ You don’t want to shoot your child. There’s no Republican leader that wants to default on our debt, that I’ve talked to,” House Minority Leader Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD) said at a Capitol Hill press conference on Thursday.

    Can we take down this post, I find it to be in poor taste and no one is posting anything new to move it down the page. Someone please post a Happy New Year message or something, but I. Tired of looking at it.

    Three weeks ago in PD I commented “Hillary, and Bill, do not look to be in the best of health to make such a run and do it with the tenacity energy one needs to win a presidential election.” I think the Hillary 2016 coronation is way to early and her latest health problems seem to suggest as much. I hope Hillary good health and longevity. I am concerned with the toll her current job has had on her health and I seriously doubt she will even want to go through the turmoil of a Presidential campaign.

      Especially since her concussion seems to be keeping her from testifying even after all this time.

        I find it funny that Dems are now proudly denouncing anyone who questioned Hillary’s “concussion” story. As if the irony of the timing of her ailments should not raise questions in people’s minds. Seriously?

        Now her blood clot in her leg is reported as proof of her concussion? Any evidence the two are connected?

        I assume Hillary’s ailments are in fact legit. But, to not question the timing of them would be an act blind acceptance of whatever we are told to believe regardless of how politically convenient they appeared to be.

        Apparently we are all insensitive jerks who are cynical of Washington’s politics. As if such cynicism is unwarranted from all the honest straight shooting we get fromour nation’s capital.
