- Infuriating! Disgusting! Neil Cavuto’s favorite “moderate Democrat”
I doubt there is a bigger phony in Congress than Joe Manchin. He poses as a “moderate Democrat’. In this way he is a “go to guy” for any equally disingenuous “TV anchor” who wishes everyone thought of him as just a nice, happy, honest, self-deprecating, ‘news’ guy…like Neil Cavuto.
Manchin’s specialty is to pose as a politician with a righteous commitment to everything ‘non-partisan’, a Constitution adherent, and, with a total dedication to the prosperity, well-being, and freedom of the American people.
Actually, Joe Manchin is just another partisan Democrat hack. He glibly says one thing and does the other; when Chuck Schumer says, “Joe, you can drop the crap for a minute, we need your vote” . And dutifully, ‘Joe’ drops “the crap for a minute”.
If any body thought that a 50-50 party split in the Senate would yield policies beneficial to anybody except the Democrats’ power hungry leadership because Joe Manchin was there, look no further than this guy’s latest behavior :
MANCHIN SAYS SENATE SHOULD CONSIDER REMOVING JOSH HAWLEY AND TED CRUZ UNDER THE 14TH AMENDMENT
JANUARY 15, 2021
The moderate Democrat says he doesn’t know how Hawley and Cruz ‘can live with themselves’
Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin (W.Va.) said in an interview this week that he believes the Senate should consider removing GOP Sens. Josh Hawley (Mo.) and Ted Cruz (Texas), arguing the Republicans were complicit in insurrection when they objected to certifying some Electoral College votes the same day a pro-Trump mob attacked the Capitol in protest of the election results.
What are the details?
In an interview posted Friday, PBS “Firing Line” host Margaret Hoover asked Manchin, “Would you support, Senator, the removal of Senator Hawley and Senator Cruz through the 14th Amendment, Section 3?”
“Well they should look—absolutely—basically, that should be a consideration,” Manchin replied, adding, “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual and I get along fine with Ted. But what he did was totally outside the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges that we have.”
Hoover had reminded her audience that Section 3 of the 14th Amendment reads, “No Person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress…who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof.”
Manchin, a moderate, recalled that while the Capitol building was under siege on Jan. 6 and Senators waited in a secure location before returning to the upper chamber to continue their votes, he tried to persuade Hawley not to continue contesting the election results.
The West Virginia Democrat told Politico the same thing, saying an interview last week that he told Hawley, “please think of what you’re doing, please reconsider what you’re doing.”
Manchin was also critical of Cruz, in particular, for continuing to fundraise on his vow to fight the election results on behalf of President Donald Trump, who has insisted the election was “rigged” against him in favor of President-elect Joe Biden.
“There’s no way they cannot be complicit in this,” Manchin said of the Republican senators that voted against certifying the election results. “That they think they can walk away and say, ‘I just exercised my right as a senator?’ Especially after we came back here and after they saw what happened.”
He added, “I don’t know how you can live with yourself right now knowing that people lost their lives.”
