‘Gentleman’ Jim Moran Can’t Differentiate Between Allen West And A Hyena; Thinks That Barack Obama Is The Lion King

Must see video that I can’t embed. Hard to tell when on Tuesday this was shot, but the possibility of immediately after a hydraulic lunch comes to mind*:

“People like Mr. [Allen] West, and Governor Brewer and so on, particularly Mr. West, is not only not representative of the African-American community or of the Republican Party, let alone of the American public. So what he says really is of little or no consequence, but it’s unfortunate,” Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA) said about Rep. Allen West telling liberal leaders to “get the hell” out of the country.
“He just seems clueless not that he has climbed abroad ship. He’s climbed this ladder of opportunity that was constructed by so many of his ancestors’ sweat, sacrifice, blood, you know they did everything they could for his generation to be successful. But now that he’s climbed abroad ship, instead of reaching down and steadying the ladder, he wants to push it off. ‘I’m up here. If you’re not with me, too bad.’ And President Obama, fortunately, is the kind of guy that says ‘I was very fortunate to get where I am and I’m going to spend my life trying to steady that ladder of opportunity by reducing college tuition and training our workers, trying to get a decent job for everybody. Making sure that while I’m African-American, it really doesn’t matter. What matters is my commitment to public service, my love for this country and I’m going to leave a constructive legacy,'” he said.
Moran says that Obama “doesn’t engage in this nonsense” and calls him our “Lion King” while comparing his Republican detractors to “hyenas.”

    Moran must have had a hand in getting Bubba Clinton labeled as the first black President.

    The freaking Lion King?

    Who is he trying to persuade, second graders?  Talk about condescending bs of astronomical magnitude.

    “People like Mr. [Martin] Bashir and Congressman Moran and so on, particularly Congressman Moran, is not only not representative of anyone with a lick of common sense, or of the Republican Party, let alone of the American public. 
    But they do represent the Democratic Party quite well.

    I can’t wait to see Col. West’s reply!
    I wish he was running for POTUS.
    West/Rubio or Rice – can you imagine?!!!!!

    Folks – Moran’s absolutely correct! West is not an example of an African-American.

    He is an excellent example of an American.

    Don’t bother pointing that out to Moran, he might get DTs.

    I feel sorry for the poor old chickens I would pluck if I could get close to people like Moran with a bucket of hot tar. But then it occurred to me, I don’t really have to go that far. It wouldn’t be right. I could just rip all of Moran’s clothes off and turn him into a fucking little tar baby.

    Having spent his squalid political life running blindly in the middle of the pack, Moran really has no other frame of reference EXCEPT hyenae….

    Extra snark points to American Glob for pointing out that this is an awesome start to Black History Month.

    This is great.  Now anytime any “civil rights leader” or “community organizer” makes any comment regarding race, I will demand they obtain written confirmation from Jim Moran certifying to their qualifications to discuss the issue. 

    It seems everyone on the left is jake with Jim being the decider.
