Democrats offended that Republicans use the O-word on the House floor

by editor on February 22, 2011

If you’re like us, and for your sake we pray to god that you’re not, you’re probably wondering what offensive word begins with the letter “o.”

TheHill.com has the story of Republicans’ o-verly o-ffended o-pponents:

House Republicans and Democrats started Friday morning’s debate over whether to defund last year’s healthcare law, and as part of this debate sparred over whether members should be allowed to call that law “ObamaCare.”

After two House Republicans called it “ObamaCare,” Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) asked the chairman whether these “disparaging” remarks should be allowed on the House floor.

“That is a disparaging reference to the president of the United States; it is meant as a disparaging reference to the president of the United States, and it is clearly in violation of the House rules against that,” she said.

Of course, Wasserman Schultz’ idiotic plea only egged on Republicans, who ratcheted up their efforts:

… Rep. Denny Rehberg (Mont.), who sponsored the amendment to defund the law, said he refers to it as ObamaCare and said, “You would think he wants his name attached to his signature legislation.

“So we call it what it is,” he continued. “It is ObamaCare. It’s a travesty. It is big government. It is not controlling healthcare costs, and it needs to be repealed and today we’re going to try to defund it to the best of our ability. And if we’re not successful this time, we’re going to try again and again and again until we either have a Senate that’s willing to pass it or a president that understands that we cannot do this to the American people.”

If they’re going to begin banning words from the floor of the House we can think of three more they should consider:

Debbie. Wasserman. Schultz.

Wasserman Schultz is clearly the Miss Manners of House civility and decorum.

Remember how outraged she was when her fellow Floridian stood on the House floor and disparaged Republicans by saying they want Americans to “die quickly?”

Not.

Well she may be offended by the use of Obamacare but I am offended she represents the district right across the street from me, luckily I am in Allen West’s district.

What are the most significant and most telling of Ms Wasserman-Schultz’s words?

“…it is meant as a disparaging reference…”

“…meant…”

MEANT!!!

In other words, “we don’t like what you’re thinking, and we know what you’re thinking from the words you use”. And the only reason they “only” want us to stop using that term is because the 20% in the middle who swings elections will frown on re-education camps. Otherwise, they would not even bother with their harumphing-fest and just ship the offending republicans off to sensitivity class.

If there was ever any doubt that the “liberal/progressive” side is the thought police (not that there was much among sentient people with half a brain), this should end it.

And they call us “fascists”?

Were they making their “O-face” when they said it?

Why does she consider it a “disparaging” term when obama is the one who likes it, wants it and came up with it?!? His whole platform was on this. Knowing the narcissist he is, I’m sure he LOVES it being called “obamacare”

That’s what I thought. You’d think they’d be proud to have it named after their dear leader. Just no understanding libs.

Let em snivel, little worms! Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) is a Jew hating Jewess! These people are deranged and dangerous, the sooner we oust them the sooner we heal as a nation! (I’m not talking about Jews here, I’m talking about marxist-socialist libtards)!

When I saw the headline, I thought the “o” meant Oprah.

I was thinking about something else, like what liberals feel when they have successfully screwed us taxpayers out of our hard earned money.

Hey, administrator! What did I miss? I try to go to work for a while, be a responsible taxpaying citizen, and what does it get me? Nothing. I missed the deletion of a comment here, something I have not seen before. Must have been pretty good, or bad, to warrant such actions!

Why doesn’t everyone get issued a ball gag and lock at birth? I’m sure that would make the liberals quite happy.

As long as it was being shoved down are throats and they had control obamacare had their blessings. When it became a noose around their politcal necks, they could not get off the ship fast enough. Worse than rats on a sinking ship.

They are all afraid that this will end their cushy jobs at tax payer expense. Call it what it truly is. ObamaCare and socialism.

Unfortunately this assclown was re-elected last November with 2/3 of the votes from her district. 63% of her constituants voted her back in for another SIX YEARS, BTW her constituants according to her, the people she represents, and this is straight from her lips, are the jewish, black & gay communities. My question is who represents the rest of district 20?

I am also a Floridian, fortunately living in District 9, so Wasserman “I KNOW NOTHING” Schultz doesn’t represent me! I do however live in the same TV market as those she represents, so I am regaled with her stupidity whenever she gets face time with the local libtard news teams.
This woman is a completely self-hating Jew, and only campaigns to the gay and black constituancy in her district, which has convieniently been drawn in such a way as to keep morons like her in office in perpetuity.
Fortunately, mr mojo risin is incorrect about one thing, she’s in the house, which has 2 year terms, not the senate that has 6 year terms. There is the possibility that this lame excuse for a congresswoman might be revealed for the loudmouth, do-nothing person she is, and become involuntary retired in 2012.

Whew! I’m so glad I was wrong, thanks poppajoe. I feel much better now.The idea of 6 more years was depressing.

When you’re down to being offended by the term used, you have lost the argument.
