Poor Maxine Waters seems to be confused. We realize it’s tough to tell the difference between a confused Maxine Waters and the normal Maxine Waters, so let’s just let Maxine be Maxine.
In this case, the California Democrat seems to be confused about who wants to do something to turn the economy around and who wants to continue the policies that got us into this mess. In her confusion she lashed out at the Tea Party.
The Los Angeles Times explains:
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Los Angeles) came out swinging against Republicans in Congress on Saturday as she addressed the unemployed during a forum in Inglewood.
The event occurred a day after new statistics were released showing that California’s jobless rate last month went up to 12%, from 11.8%. California now has the second-highest rate of unemployment in the nation, trailing only Nevada at 12.9%, and its jobless rate is well above the U.S. average of 9.1%.
Waters vowed to push Congress to focus on creating more jobs. “I’m not afraid of anybody,” said Waters. “This is a tough game. You can’t be intimidated. You can’t be frightened. And as far as I’m concerned, the ‘tea party’ can go straight to hell.”
More than 1,000 people attended “Kitchen Table Summit,” which was designed to give the jobless an opportunity to vent to elected officials and share their struggles about finding a job.
Typical liberal concept. “Come on down. We won’t do anything to help you get a job, but we’ll explore your feelings about how tough it is to get a job.
