When Republicans were in the minority conservatives were routinely called “extremists”, “domestic terrorists”, and worse.
Ergo, following the same logic – today as the minority party, Democrats, openly defy 70% of the American Electorate, and refused to support a veto override of the Keystone Pipeline, they are positioning themselves as the extremists and domestic terrorists.
(Via The Hill) The Senate failed to override President Obama’s veto of legislation approving the Keystone XL pipeline, falling five votes short of the two-thirds majority needed in a 62-37 vote.
Nine Democrats voted with Republicans to override Obama: Sens. Joe Manchin (W.Va.), Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.), Mark Warner (Va.), Claire McCaskill (Mo.), Bob Casey (Pa.), Joe Donnelly (Ind.), Michael Bennet (Colo), Tom Carper (Del.) and Jon Tester (Mont.). (link)
