Republicans are "crazies" (?)

Asked to clarify President Obama's remark about the "crazies" who oppose him, White House spokesman Eric Shultz on Tuesday said the president "may have been a little flip in his language."

Obama told a Democratic fundraiser near Las Vegas late Monday that he and Senate Minority leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) had spent time "figuring out how we are going to deal with the crazies in terms of managing some problems."

Schultz told reporters, "After spending a few weeks away from the hustle and bustle of Washington, the president came back from vacation and was remarking with Senator Reid at the challenges they face this fall.

And he may have been a little flip in his language, but we have seen Republicans do wildly irresponsible things in the past, and that includes shutting down the government for ideological reasons. That's a prospect that came to fruition a few years ago, and it's something that Republican lawmakers in both the House and the Senate are floating this time as well."

Once again the Democrats get away with saying the Republicans shut down the government for ideological reasons which is a half truth. There would not have been any government shutdowns had the Democrats not held their own ideological position.

When is the media going to start calling out such half truths?

"Crazies" is the perfect word for the religious right.

Why would the media call those out? They're the ones pushing those half truths*!

(*Half truth: a lie of omission.)

How do we know he wasn't referring to some of his own party that disagree with him?

BTW, when has Obama NOT been flip?

"Religious right", ah so that is what they call the followers of Islam now days.

1:09 AM Right. It took two to arrive at a shut down. Although, IIRC, Republicans did attempt to negotiate by giving Obama something in the taxes he wanted. But Obama wanted everything or nothing. In the end it was a presidential decision to shut everything down despite Republican efforts to avoid it.

1:27 AM Also for the far left,religious or not.

!:48 AM He most likely was referring to those in his party who disagree with him. After all, one has to be crazy to disagree with the Emperor.

Dean: I have always described Democrats saying Republicans shutdown the government like my friend claiming his parents made him fail history in middle school. We had all semester to work on a project that was 50% of of our final grade and he put it off until the weekend before it was due. Only that weekend, his parents went out of town and weren't there to take him to the library and buy supplies and such. He ended up just not doing the project and failing the class. But hearing him tell the story, his parents made him fail that class.
