Welcome Instapundit Readers!!. While you’re here, check my post on how Democrats believe their victory means that opposition to their policies must cease. And please help me find the best short summaries of the “stimulus.”
Once again, President Obama appears to be guilty of the sins of which his predecessor was accused, in many cases by those who would come to support the Democrat.
So, if the three Republicans who sided with the Democrats in the Senate are “patriotic,” what does that make the rest of the Senate Republicans, or the House Republicans who unanimously voted against the Democrats’ pork-fest? Unpatriotic? Isn’t that a natural inference?
In a similar vein, Tom Maguire wonders if the president is saying that “bill opponents are not patriotic? Or are less patriotic?” And he asks for “analogous examples” of such definitions of patriotism (as support for president’s proposals) “from the Bush era.”
For the record, I think he’ll be hard-pressed to find them in the statements of the former president.
