Rep. Patrick Kennedy said something particularly illuminating at a Young Democrat’s meeting.
We hear that Kennedy told the crowd: "I don’t need Bush’s tax cut. I have never worked a [bleeping] day in my life." With that he got the audience’s attention — the dropping-jaws kind. "He droned on and on, frequently mentioning how much better the candidates would sound the more we drank," a witness told us.
Indeed, that sums up the attitude of the current Democratic leadership. We’re rich, so we don’t need tax cuts. In fact, we can also pay for restrictive environmental regulations, higher medical costs, and all the other problems associated with maintaining a social welfare state to pay off our core constituency. If you can’t, well, too damn bad. You peons in flyover country with your antiquated notions of personal freedom and responsibility don’t matter. The people who have never worked a (bleeping) day in their lives are the ones running the Democratic Party. No wonder they have such little regard for the hard work of others.
