Nostrilitus: GOP 'Rooting Against' USA

A massive dose of projection from The Ugliest American.
Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.), who has had an eventful couple of weeks to say the least, believes House Republican opposition to climate change legislation and the stimulus indicates they’re cheering against the good ol’ US of A.

“It appears that the Republican Party leadership in the Congress has made a decision that they want to deny President Obama success, which means, in my mind, they are rooting against the country, as well,” the powerful House Energy and Commerce Committee chairman told WAMU radio host Diane Rehm on Tuesday morning, promoting his new book, “The Waxman Report.”
So now voting against economy-crushing legislation is unpatriotic? Seems to me legislation specifically designed to stifle economic growth is un-American.

Of course, Democrats openly rooting for our defeat in Iraq was merely dissent, the highest form of patriotism. These turds spent eight years undermining George W. Bush at every turn, yet if you questioned their patriotism they squealed like stuck pigs.
Michael Steel, spokesman for House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio), quickly demanded an apology from Waxman — who clashed with Boehner during the climate change vote last month.

“That is an outrageous statement, and obviously Chairman Waxman owes the American people an apology,” Steel wrote in an e-mail to POLITICO.

Frankly, this sort of irresponsible rhetoric smacks of desperation from a chairman who just forced members of his own party to walk the plank on an unpopular national energy tax and is having trouble convincing them to do it again on a government takeover of health care,” he added.
It'll be curious to see the anemic sales for his book. Obviously "The Waxman Report" isn't a book on grooming advice for men.

It's currently No. 382 on Amazon. The publisher wisely left his face off the cover. No doubt that would frighten away potential customers.
