The Word Of The Day Is Being Held Hostage

The Democrats have been going over their talking points and have decided that the word of the week will be “hostage.” They have described Tea Party members as racist and terrorist, but now they are hostage takers. President Obama first used the hostage metaphor in December of last year when talking about the Bush tax cuts. “I’ve said before that I felt that the middle class tax cuts were being held hostage to the high end tax cuts. I think it’s tempting not to negotiate with the hostage takers, unless the hostage gets harmed. Then people will question the wisdom of that strategy…In this case, the hostage was the American people and I was not willing to see them get harmed.” During the debt ceiling debate the Democrats started cranking the hostage metaphor out again on a regular basis and they are still using it today when discussing the FAA debate. They probably got to much slack for calling members of the voting public terrorists, so they have decided that hostage takers are nicer. They will at least give in when their demands are met, whereas terrorist just kill and terrorize people. If we get lucky some of those hostage takers will grab up Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, John Kerry, and maybe even Charlie Wrangle and try to get a ransom from the American public. It will turn out like “The Ransom Of Red Chief”, and hostage takers will pay us to take them back. We could solve the budget crisis that way.
