Haven’t they been doing this already? Their enablers in the media certainly have. Politico, while actually reported on the “unnamed Democrat” who suggested this, is also adding their own left wing bias to the issue.
Some Republicans have scrambled to portray alleged shooter Jared Lee Loughner as an unbalanced loner, and pointed to a high school classmate’s account that, four years ago, he had left-wing views.
Politico, like other left wing media slurpers seem to forget about all the peaceful talk and image creation by the left wing loons during the Bush years. I know, it’s easy to forget when you ass is so far up Obama, Pelosi, and Harry Reid’s asses.
Now the unnamed Democrats cited by Politico are saying this:
“They need to deftly pin this on the tea partiers,” said the Democrat. “Just like the Clinton White House deftly pinned the Oklahoma City bombing on the militia and anti-government people.”
Another Democratic strategist said the similarity is that Tucson and Oklahoma City both “take place in a climate of bitter and virulent rhetoric against the government and Democrats.”
This Democrat said that the time had come to insist that Republicans stand up when, for example, a figure such as Fox News commentator Glenn Beck says something incendiary.
And people wonder why things are so polarized right now.
