Hoyer: Tea Party People Come From Unhappy Families
On the eve of his demotion by voters from House Majority Leader to House Minority Whip, Rep. Steny Hoyer, D-Md., Hoyer offered this insight into the psychology of the Tea Party movement:
There are a whole lot of people in the Tea Party that I see in these polls who don’t want any compromise. My presumption is they have unhappy families. All of you have been in families: single-parent, two-parents, whatever. Multiple parent and a stepfather. The fact is life is about trying to reach accommodation with one another so we can move forward. That is certainly what democracy is about. So if we are going to move forward compromise is necessary.
So there you have it… it’s all the crazies fault!! Whew! I was beginning to worry that the policies, ideology and methods of the (Globalist Marxist ) Democratic Party had been rejected!
I don’t know about you, but as a Christian, I don’t compromise on values. If something is wrong or illegal (legal doesn’t make it right either) I hold my ground. I don’t tell white lies, I don’t steal pens from work, I don’t agree to do something that makes me feel sick to my stomach. I do what I know is right no matter the consequences or who gets angry. That’s called a moral code. Compromise for the sake of expediency is for those who don’t have morals… they just have an agenda.
My preference is for leaders who know right from wrong and are willing to die for the right, not compromise to make the opposition happy… they never compromised with us when they were in power, did they? And who said that ” We’re in a family?” Can they show me where “accommodation” is mandated in the Constitution?
As we say in Indiana…”What goes around, comes around.”
PS: As for repealing vs. “fixing” the unnatural acts of the last Congress, in knitting and cross stitch one often needs to tear out a few rows to correct a wrong stitch… I never regret the time it takes to get it right.
