Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders slammed Republican obstructionism as “undemocratic” and “unAmerican.”
The Hill reported:

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) slammed Republican obstructionism in the Senate as “undemocratic” and “unAmerican” and urged filibuster reform after Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) blocked his own bill earlier this week.

“In a time of disfunctionality in the Senate, and all kinds of absurdity, this probably takes the cake when you filibuster your own” bill, the self-described “democratic socialist” lawmaker told MSNBC’s Ed Schultz Friday evening. “The American people want action and it is undemocratic, it is unAmerican when a small minority can deny the majority from going forward.”

Sanders made the remarks after McConnell on Thursday called for a vote on legislation giving President Obama unilateral power to increase the nation’s borrowing limit, the so-called debt ceiling. McConnell had hoped to demonstrate that Republicans and Democrats alike oppose what he described as a “power grab” by the president, but he was forced to object to a simple majority vote after Democrats agreed to move forward.

  1. Socialist moron. Ignore the jerkoff and take away his pension and give it to the poor along with 50% of his salary

  2. If Dems hadn’t filibustered the Republican efforts to clean up the mess at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the banking crisis may have been averted, and we might have escaped the miserable Obama bad-joke-of-of-presidency.

    Imagine what the Dems would have done if Republicans had tried to do away with the filibuster.

  3. Rot in he’ll you piece of crap.

  4. Funny how its always “Its the will of the majority so DO IT!” when the Democrats are in charge.

    Funny how compromise ALWAYS means, “Do it the Democrat way.”

    Funny how “reasonable” ALWAYS means, “Democrat.”

  5. And the minority running what the majority wants is exactly what the ACLU, athiests, and Global warming factions expect from the American people.!!

  6. OBAMA HIM-SELF IS UN-AMERICAN

    What this idiot does not mention is that the Dems and esp Barry Sotero are un-American.

    Barry Sotero is a Kenyan.

    For Dems (and Indies like him) to call Repubs unamerican is like a cannibal preaching vegetarianism.

  7. Here is a prime example of why the country is in the shape it’s in today. What the hell gives a socialist the right to call anybody Un-American. What part of “I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies” does he not understand. He swore to that oath when he took office and he certainly has not lived up to or honored that oath, that not only makes him Un-American but also dishonorable.

  8. The American people could have easily replaced those Republicans in the House of Representatives during the last election.

    They chose not to.

  9. Axelrod no doubt came up with the term “obstructionist” and the lapdog media grasped it immediately as a neat little label to demonize Republicans. And sadly, no one in the GOP bothered to correct it by pointing out (in an equally compelling fashion) that Saving the Country from Crushing Debt is not “obstructionist” — it is standing by your conservative principles.

    I’m sure the Dems have a list of catch words and phrases they have all memorized, and are instructed to use in every speech, media appearance etc. Warm, fuzzy, emotional words like “fair”, “balanced”, “patriotic” etc are under the D column, and nasty, selfish words like “obstructionist”, “un-American”, “liar”, “tax cheat”, “heartless”, etc are all under the R column.

    Obama has one goal, and one goal only in this whole fiscal cliff charade: to destroy the GOP. And it appears he may be succeeding.

    The GOP can’t even seem to make an effective argument against the completely ridiculous notion that Obama has a mandate while, apparently, the Republicans in Congress don’t!!

    GOP would do well to spend a whole lot of money buying themselves the best wordsmiths and spin doctors that money can buy. And then find a team of surrogates that can go out and “sell it” with a couple of memorable memes and catch phrases.

  10. You know what’s unAmerican, Senator? Violating THESE laws….God knows you violate all of the rest of them

    8. Thou shalt not steal.

    9. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

    10. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.

  11. Dems need to review their behavior during Bush’s years in office. Hypocrite=Democrat. I don’t know how they spew their lies with a straight face, but they do. Quite adept at it too. People must be awfully stupid and uninformed to fall for Dem’s BS year after year after year. What the Dems want to do is stop any and all opposition to what they want to do. Stifle free speech. Take away our rights. It’s as simple as that.

  12. #10

    You sure got that right!!!!!!!!!!

  13. “The American people want action and it is undemocratic, it is unAmerican when a small minority can deny the majority from going forward.”

    Let’s see, Sanders is of Jewish descent, right? Let’s try this:

    “The German people want action and it is undemocratic, it is unGerman when a small minority can deny the majority from going forward.”

    Sounds like something a certain Austrian corporal would say, huh?

  14. Hey Sanders. .Socialism IS UN-AMERICAN. . .

    BOYCOTT BEN & JERRY’s and other Vermont made products!

  15. By the way Sanders. .67% of Americans say NO to Obamacare yet you and your DemocRATs force it upon us. . sounds undemocratic!

    And taking from producers and laborers while grossly overspending and causing country to loose AAA credit rating and incur massive debt. . sounds undemocratic. . .

    Let’s put it out there Sanders!!!

  16. This country has seen obstruction dating back to the constitutional convention. What we need to do is stop being lead by the nose by the political class.

  17. “McConnell had hoped to demonstrate that Republicans and Democrats alike oppose what he described as a “power grab” by the president, but he was forced to object to a simple majority vote after Democrats agreed to move forward.”

    If you give them the slightest inch they will take it, and never give you the slightest chance.

    And the Democrats are all socialists, and most of the Republicans as well.

  18. Stand aside, Republicans. Let them Own It.

  19. No Bernie, ‘unconstitutional’ is ramming the Obama-don’t-care down our throats using lies, threats and payoffs. And come to think of it … when was the last time someone from your tainted side of the aisle compromised on anything? Your idea of ‘compromise’ is the GOP toeing the socialist line. Run your scam on the truth somewhere else – ain’t working no more, dude.
