Randy Neugebauer: I yelled 'baby killer'
Politico ^ | 03/22/10 | JAKE SHERMAN

Posted on 03/22/2010 11:18:33 AM PDT by OldDeckHand

Texas Republican Rep. Randy Neugebauer was the mysterious lawmaker that shouted “baby killer” during Rep. Bart Stupak’s (D-Mich.) floor speech Sunday night, his office said Monday.

Rumors that Neugebauer was the yeller began swirling Sunday night, after several lawmaker surmised that the scream was tinted with a southern accent.

“Last night was the climax of weeks and months of debate on a health care bill that my constituents fear and do not support,” Neugebauer said in a news release. “In the heat and emotion of the debate, I exclaimed the phrase ‘it’s a baby killer’ in reference to the agreement reached by the Democratic leadership. While I remain heartbroken over the passage of this bill and the tragic consequences it will have for the unborn, I deeply regret that my actions were mistakenly interpreted as a direct reference to Congressman Stupak himself.”

He yelled the truth. Stupak is a baby killer supporter. His actions of recent are proof of it.

We’re so evil, yelling “baby killer” as opposed to the dems voting tax money to kill babies.

Well it is a little like congressmen decrying the bigotry of tea party members while referring to them with a sexually charged pejorative/epithet. Welcome to the rabbit whole.

What a world.

Now yelling a phrase containing the words “baby killer” is worse than killing babies.

He doesn’t owe Stupak an apology. Fact is that stupid Stupak beleives the Executive order means something. EO’s don’t trump Federal law and the bill contains $11 Billion for “Community Health Clinics” which can be “Planned Parenthood Clinics”. If anyone tries to stop funding them, some Federal Judge will just rule that the Executive Order cannot prevail over Federal Law. End of dispute.

He was right whether he was referencing the bill or Stupak. No need to apologize for speaking the truth.

Wonder why they didn’t celebrate over in Suitland or Prince George’s County, or in the District, where there constituents are?

Randy, you and Joe Wilson need to hang out together and stop the apologies. We have to be able to label these people and events for what they are. Obama lied and the HC bill is a baby killer. Who can argue?

Why apologize? I’d love to have 10 minutes on the floor with CSPAN camera’s on... I’d use every 4 letter word in every imaginable combination and tone along with hand gestures to match and the only thing not beeped out would be, “NO I WILL NO YIELD THE REST OF MY TIME TO ANY OF THESE..” and then continue on.

Stupak did not make abortion legal for heavens sakes...what he asked for was a bill that made sure the taxpayers did not pay for ELECTIVE abortions. I do not want my tax dollars to pay for anyone’s ELECTIVE abortion. My daughter is 38. She has a friend, who by the age of 30, had five....FIVE...elective abortions. And..by the same doctor. What doctor would do this? Why did he not tie her tubes? I certainly do not want to pay one cent for her elective abortions!

What is there to apologize for?

What he shoudl have said:

“Last night was the climax of weeks and months of debate on a health care bill that my constituents fear and do not support,” Neugebauer said in a news release. “In the heat and emotion of the debate, I exclaimed the phrase ‘it’s a baby killer’ in reference to the agreement reached by the Democratic leadership. While I remain heartbroken over the passage of this bill and the tragic consequences it will have for the unborn, I deeply regret that is has gotten so far that my actions in speaking out where needed now more than ever. I am sorry Stupak didn’t get the point and vote wis his concious in mind and instead sold out for 700,000 pieces of silver. And I am sorry to the American people that this Abomination of a bill was passed.”

For yelling it. Stupak did not have anything to do with abortion being a legal procedure. I do not understand why people are upset with him. Please read my above post..And...hello Frogjerk.

Wouldn’t it have been awesome if they could have, say, back when Reagan was in office? “You say I can’t fund the Contras? Oh, really? BOOM! Now I can.”

“what he asked for was a bill that made sure the taxpayers did not pay for ELECTIVE abortions”

And when he didn’t get it, he signed on anyway.

I’m sorry that your crew was stupid enough to fire on a station filled with a quarter million civilians, including your own people. And I’m sorry I waited as long as I did before I blew them all straight to hell! [pauses] As with everything else, it’s the thought that counts.

Texas Republican Rep. Randy Neugebauer has balls but doesn’t need to apologize to any one. I don’t believe God will condemn him.
