Pete Stark who stood on the Senate Floor and declared that “you don’t have money to fund the war, or children, but you’re going to spend it to blow up innocent people if we can get enough kids to grow old enough for you to sent to Iraq to get their heads blown off for the president’s amusement…” stood by his words and was steadfast in his 1st amendment rights to speak his mind. Even Olberman said it was a refreshing to hear it. I agree, we don’t have enough politicians out there willing to stand up and say they hate george BushHitler! Way to go you trendsetter!
During his outburst, the Fremont lawmaker said “you don’t have money to fund the war, or children, but you’re going to spend it to blow up innocent people if we can get enough kids to grow old enough for you to sent to Iraq to get their heads blown off for the president’s amusement…”
When asked if he would take back any of his statements, Stark told KCBS “Absolutely not. I may have dishonored the commander in chief, but I think he’s done pretty well to dishonor himself without any help from me.”
He added the real dishonor is that Republicans refuse to expand the State Children’s Health Insurance Program. “The fact is that I do support the troops in Iraq. They’re there fighting to protect our children here,” said Stark. “I think (Republicans) owe the troops in Iraq an apology for not protecting the children that those troops left behind.”
Pete Stark says the president is waging the war in Iraq for the fun of seeing innocent Americans get their heads ‘blown off,’ but Democrats still support him. Keith Olbermann calls Stark’s comments ‘refreshing.’ And Stark has been warmly embraced by the Daily Kos, where he thanked the site’s readers for their support. But they all support the troops, right? Oh, and the children, too.
