Turns out President Obama’s statement on Michael Baisden’s radio show about “hand to hand combat” was only the second most extreme statement he made in that interview. Here’s the first:
Here’s the statement about hand to hand combat.
Remember when liberals were outrageously outraged about Sarah Palin’s map and her statement that conservatives shouldn’t retreat but “reload.” At the time, Paul Krugman wrote:
you’ll search in vain for anything comparably menacing, anything that even hinted at an appeal to violence, from members of Congress, let alone senior party officials…
Turned out that wasn’t true when Krugman wrote it, but it’s certainly not true now. You can’t get much more senior than the President. So do references to hijacking and hand to hand combat count as an “appeal to violence?” If not, then is Paul Krugman willing to admit that Palin’s “reload” reference was no more offensive? I await his concession on the point.
Addendum: Also, on the hijacking of democracy…the Daily Caller had a nice rundown of who is spending what on races around the country. No surprise, Democrats have hundreds of millions in union money to throw around this cycle. Why isn’t that hijacking democracy?
