More Stimulus Response Behaviour

The ability of certain Republicans to sound dumber and dumber over and over again never ceases to amaze me.

From $787B stimulus package passes through U.S. Congress:

"The bill that was about jobs, jobs, jobs has turned into a bill that's about spending, spending, spending," said House Republican Leader John Boehner on Friday, tossing the 1,071-page document to the floor in Congress.
Isn’t spending the very definition of a stimulus bill? Didn’t that guy who used to be president before Barack Obama want everyone (including the government) to spend all the time? Didn’t he say it was good for the economy? Wasn't he a Republican?

From Huckabee: Stimulus is 'anti-religious' by Andy Barr:
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee warned supporters Tuesday that the $828 billion stimulus package is “anti-religious.”

In an e-mail that was also posted on his blog ahead of the Senate’s passage, Huckabee wrote: “The dust is settling on the ‘bipartisan’ stimulus bill and one thing is clear: It is anti-religious.”

The former Republican presidential candidate pointed to a provision in both the House and Senate versions banning higher education funds in the bill from being used on a “school or department of divinity.”

“You would think the ACLU drafted this bill,” Huckabee said. “For all of the talk about bipartisanship, this Congress is blatantly liberal.”

“Emily’s List, radical environmental groups, etc. all have a seat at the decision making table in Washington these days,” he continued. “Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are in charge and they are working with an equally ‘progressive’ President Obama (remember his voting record is more liberal than Ted Kennedy!).”
It is hard for me to decide whether Huckabee is extremely dumb, or extremely smart. I do know that he is simply wrong. Huckabee needs to be reminded that the non-religious, the ACLU and its supporters, liberals, the supporters of Emily’s List, “radical” environmental groups and progressives are all made up of American citizens. American citizens that are supposed to be represented in Washington. He doesn’t like that they are being represented in Washington now? How Un-American of him. I say it’s about time. Obama wants to include Republicans in the political process, why can’t Huckabee include Non-Republicans in the political process? Let’s remember that we are all in this together.
