“I am appalled, I am outraged, I’m ashamed of the Republican Party” [Darleen Click]
When Hugh Hewitt blasts Paul Ryan…
Conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt slammed Rep. Paul Ryan Tuesday in a heated exchange over the federal spending bill’s pension cuts for active duty military servicemen.
“This will destroy retention, it will destroy morale and it is deeply unfair to the American military,” Hewitt told Ryan, the Republican chairman of the House Budget committee. “…On every level it is an outrage to what we stand for in the Republican party.”
“If you think I wanted to do this…that’s not true,” Ryan said, later adding, “Look, I didn’t write this bill that’s coming to the floor tomorrow…this isn’t a bill that I wrote.” Ryan said that the House Appropriations committee wrote the bill that is expected to pass Wednesday. Ryan repeatedly claimed that he didn’t want to have to support veteran cuts.
“Didn’t want to have to”? Really? When facing Barry’s Mighty Pen and Phone, this is all you can bleat because … because … COMITY?
As Hugh later said
I am appalled, I am outraged, I’m ashamed of the Republican Party.
Welcome to Hobbiton, Hugh.
