Who's Trying To Be Divisive?

Oh not Republicans. But then Rep. Robin Hayes went and said "liberals hate real Americans that work and accomplish and achieve and believe in God." Yep, it's the whole "I'm more patriotic than you" garbage that Republicans have been pushing the whole week. I guess they get to decide who REAL AMERICANS are. What's funnier is at first he denied even making the statements. He called the story it appeared in "irresponsible journalism." Oops, just one little problem. There was a recording made of the event. Here's Hayes' statement:

“I genuinely did not recall making the statement and, after reading it, there is no doubt that it came out completely the wrong way. I actually was trying to work to keep the crowd as respectful as possible, so this is definitely not what I intended.”

Robin Hayes an expert on who liberals hate?

Hmm, isn't that the same Robin Hayes who voted to protect Corporate Welfare for Oil Companies and fought against the Minimum Wage Increase before the summer recess?

Yeah, Mr. Hayes...too bad you're not a "real American".

Real Americans are the ones who are getting screwed without getting kissed by the very people who are supposed to help them.

Again, I am not surprised.

Sen. McCain and Gov. Palin keep saying that Barack Obama isn't telling the whole truth about his relationship with Bill Ayers.

How would they know? Unless!... they were part of the big terrorist conspiracy too!
