Anthony Weiner, in response to Republicans objecting to the partisan nature of the President’s deficit speech. (via comeondontbullshitme)
I SAY TWO THINGS.
Rep. ANTHONY WEINER (D - NY), reacting to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R - VA) calling for the proposed “Government Shutdown Prevention Act,” to become law if passed by the House but not the Senate.
(via The Daily Show)
New York’s 9th District Representative, Democrat Anthony Weiner, reacts to a Republican-sponsored bill that would redefine the definition of rape in an attempt to reduce government funding of abortion.
“Don’t let anyone who supports this bill ever say to you, ‘I’m for less government regulation.’ You’ve gotta be kidding. You can’t vote for this thing and then say you’re for less government regulation. This is the regulation of an individual woman in a room with her doctor — and Congressman Pitts, evidently.”
“I think most Americans of all political stripes believe there’s a basic right to privacy. Is there anything more basic than your body?”
When I think of who the Republicans are talking up as possible Presidential candidates, I laugh, because none of them are even one-sixty-fourth as qualified, passionate, or correct as Democrat Anthony fucking Weiner is. And he doesn’t even wanna be President.
New York Democratic representative ANTHONY WEINER, challenging Republicans to follow their own rules requiring bills to include a statement attesting to the constitutionality of a proposed law — which they can’t in this case, because restricting abortions violates the Constitution!!!
But they just ignore shit like that, because they’re fucking Republicans, and they can’t be bothered with things like Supreme Court rulings.
And oh yeah — Frank Pallone (D - NJ)? He kicked ass in his follow-up, too.
Republicans violated a procedural rule that they put in place regarding citing the relevant Constitutional passage when putting forward a piece of legislation (the specific piece of legislation they were trying to put through was with regards to cutting funding for abortion clinics.) The Democratic Representative from New York, Anthony Weiner, called them out on it and spent 54 minutes arguing the point with them. I found it kinda fascinating to watch, if only because he’s clearly a motivated, clear speaker and it’s an insight into the American legislative process.
I know I’m a dork, but I LOVE THIS SHIT.
I also love when Republicans trip themselves up in their own bullshit. And this chair is a complete fucking joke.
New York, man.
Oh my fucking GOD, Anthony fucking Weiner, y’all. Here comes a quote.
Anthony Weiner: SOTU Prom Date Search
Rep. ANTHONY WEINER (D - NY), taking to the rostrum yesterday to slam Republicans for “repeal” of the healthcare reform law.
He later said that he “eat this rostrum” if the GOP could “come back with legislation that will accomplish” all that has been accomplished in the current healthcare reform law.
$20 he’ll never eat that rostrum. Anthony Weiner is my hero.
