New Democrat Scandal: F***Gate

Posted on | December 10, 2010 | 6 Comments

The House Democrats were talking about the president’s “package” yesterday and . . .

The frustration with President Barack Obama over his tax cut compromise was palpable and even profane at Thursday’s House Democratic Caucus meeting.
One unidentified lawmaker went so far as to mutter “f— the president” while Rep. Shelley Berkley was defending the package the president negotiated with Republicans. Berkley confirmed the incident, although she declined to name the specific lawmaker.
“It wasn’t loud,” the Nevada Democrat said. “It was just expressing frustration from a very frustrated Member.” . . .

“Member,” “package” — gosh, there’s certainly no shortage of double-entendre material here.

“Will the New York Times Editorial Board castigate Democrats for allowing partisan fury to overcome reason, or for creating a dark mood that increases the chance of political violence?”
