Commenter on NBC news site:
"Let me remind you of a similar, albeit more cowardly, refusal to compromise that happened in 2011 in a quaint little town called Madison Wisconsin.
If I recall correctly it was similar in that a certain bill, The 2011 Wisconsin Act 10, was opposed by the Wisconsin Liberals/Progressives. Not only did the cowards try to stop the passage they took it to the adolescent point that all 14 Senate Democrats fled the state and hid like rats in the other Liberal bastion of criminality, Illinois.
So that exhibition of patriotism was proudly voiced as "This is what Democracy looks like" but the current opposition from the evil bogeymen Republicans and TEA Party is being denounced as unpatriotic, terrorist, extortion and any other pejorative possible.
The level of hypocrisy is overwhelming. Not only did the cowards on the Democrat side run like little girls from their responsibility of governance they advocated near riots and vandalizing the State Capitol.
That little dog and pony show lasted 20 days and was praised by the Liberals/Progressives and their complicit media as heroic. Disrupting a whole States ability to be governed as they hid was OK, but this protest is considered tyrannical, criminal and any other pejorative imaginable.
That was the Liberal/Progressive response as the "Flee Party". Along with unions goonions shipping in thousands of violent protestors, schools required to close for weeks as the teachers took to rioting rather than teaching, students were pulled out of class to give the illusion of "solidarity" even though most of them had no idea what the protests were about and over $270,000 worth of damage to the Capitol was all acceptable "debate".
This is the level of hypocrisy of the Liberal/Progressive unwashed masses. If they do it, it's OK. If the Republicans do it, it's wrong.
Their hypocrisy is only surpassed by their ability to lie so easily.
