Former Obama economic advisor and car czar lies about calling “tea party guys” suicide bombers

Shameless

[Steve] RATTNER: You know, the problem with this is it’s like a form of economic terrorism. I imagine these Tea Party guys are like strapped with dynamite, standing in the middle of Times Square at rush hour and saying, ‘either you do it my way, or we’re going to blow you up, ourselves up, and the whole country up with us.’ So you tell me how those kinds of standoffs end.

Sounds like Will has a better grasp of what Rattner said that morning, dontcha think? But I again digress:

WILL: Anyway, what you, you do know that 95 House Democrats voted against raising the debt ceiling as compared to only 66 House Republicans. You do know that 26 Democratic Senators voted against raising the debt ceiling?

Indeed.

What liberals like Rattner have totally ignored was that if interfering with an agreement to raise the debt ceiling was an act of terrorism, Democrats in both chambers of Congress were far more guilty than Republicans.

Alas, one would have to be an impartial journalist to figure that out, and such a thing really doesn’t exist anymore – certainly not on MSNBC where Rattner contributes.
