Aw poor Eric

"If you read the newspapers today, I for one am increasingly concerned about the growing mobs occupying Wall Street and the other cities across the country,"

By the way Eric these "mobs" as you so endearingly call them just happen to be Americans. Look I know the kneejerk reaction of every right wing Authoritarian out there is to get out the hoses and horses, but the people have a right to be heard. Just because the scare the bejeebus out of you and your friends doesn't make them any more of a mob than a gathering for a jolly regatta.

Then he has a bout of total amnesia:

"Believe it or not, some in this town have actually condoned the pitting of Americans against Americans,"

Psst...Tea Party...birthers...Obama is a muslim...you remember now?

You know where he said this?

At the Values Voter Summit, you know that little hate fest taking place in the capital.

May one ask what you are doing associating with this rabble?

Hypocrisy thy name is Cantor.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
