Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay said Sunday that Americans saw the Constitution burned by Democrats as the current Party in power rammed through healthcare reform legislation the citizens clearly said they didn't want.
Speaking to Fox News's Geraldo Rivera after the historic vote, the man formerly known as "The Hammer" said, "Not only did they not listen to the American people, they shredded and trashed the Constitution and then stood there on the floor of the House and lied to the American people."
Despite what fawning and gushing liberal media members have and will continue reporting concerning what happened in our nation's capital Sunday, DeLay spoke the really inconvenient truth that might haunt this country for generations, "You saw the Constitution burned by the Democrats in the House of Representatives tonight" (video embedded below the fold with partial transcript, h/t PoliJam):
GERALDO RIVERA, HOST: Tom, first of all, welcome Mr. Majority Leader. Are you in mourning right now, Tom?
TOM DELAY, FORMER HOUSE MAJORITY LEADER: No, I'm sickened. I'm sick to my stomach for all this.
RIVERA: You really are? So, you, you believe as John Boehner's emotional presentation to his colleagues suggests that this is a seminal event, that this is a departure from previous debates over contentious issues, that this is somehow very, very different?
DELAY: The speech by Speaker Pelosi is why Congress is held in the worst disregard in the history of the House of Representatives. Not only did they not listen to the American people, they shredded and trashed the Constitution and then stood there on the floor of the House and lied to the American people.
This is, this is, I, I have never witnessed anything like this. I guess it may have happened when they created Medicare or Social Security, but this is, this is unbelievable. It's not, you didn't see the Phoenix rising out of the ashes Geraldo. You saw the Constitution burned by the Democrats in the House of Representatives tonight.
Ouch indeed, yet it seems a metaphysical certitude few in the Obama-loving media will share DeLay's sentiments.
