Senator Tom Cotton: Pence deserves better treatment. Where were you Senator Cotton for Obama?

***GOP senator: Pence deserved better treatment at Notre Dame***

http://thehill.com/homenews/senate/334636-gop-senator-pence-deserved-better-treatment-at-notre-dame


***I bet you gave a similar comment every time your team disrespected President Obama.***

...........................................................

1. The birther fiasco (2009-2011). No evidence. No proof. No documentation. But the story traveled on for years. Yes, Hawaii is part of the United States of America.

2. “You lie” (Sept. 2009). That any individual — no less a member of Congress watching a U.S. President during a joint session on live national television — is so lacking in self control that this moment was made possible is incredible — even in an age of incivility. Remember this happened only nine months into Obama’s presidency and is another “we can’t remember that ever happening ever before” moment. Close your eyes and pretend Rep. Maxine Waters was Wilson doing this to President Bush and image the reaction.

3. Signs of the Tea Party (July 2010) and Naked Racism (April 2011). Anyone remember California GOP official Marilyn Davenport’s racist e-mail? Did she ever resign for that? I remember all the criticism of the NAACP – particularly from Black Republicans — for their “Tea Party resolution” of 2010. Where was that indignation regarding what can be viewed in this video? Click here.

4. Donald “unchecked ego” Trump inflames birther fiasco, media assists (April 2011). The mouth of Donald Trump is a powerful thing when joined with a 24-hour cable news cycle desperate for viewers. That news organizations invited Trump on the air unchallenged with zero proof of what he was saying speaks volumes on the state of journalism. That Trump was completely comfortable demanding that a U.S. President “show him his papers” displays a superiority complex that exists among those who can’t accept someone they view as “lesser” in a position of power over them.

4. Deadbeat dad and probable one-termer thinks his presence before the President actually matters and needs to tell everyone (Sept 2011). The disrespect isn’t that probable one term Congressman Joe Walsh (R-IL) wouldn’t attend the President’s Sept. 8 speech. The disrespect is that Rep. Walsh actually believed that everyone knowing he wasn’t attending was important. That he needed to announce he would not attend on national television, as if anyone cared, was yet another delusional superiority episode. That proudly showing public disrespect towards the President is a winning strategy in some political circles reveals a lot.

5. Newt Gingrich’s “Kenyan anti-colonial behavior” comment (Sept 2010). Even Washington Post columnist and conservative thinker George Will slammed this attempt to define the President as “foreign.” Never mind the facts: President Obama wasn’t reared by his father in Kenya with whom he spent only a month of his 50 years on this earth. The strategy to define the President as a “foreign” or “alien” being was started by Sarah Palin in 2008.

6. One of the underlying premises of disrespect towards the President is that he can be ordered around and dictated to like he’s Tipi the laundry boy. The presumption that a U.S. President can be ordered around is a new phenomenon that appears to have gotten underway around January 2009. From big mouth Congressmen to millionaires with nothing to do, you name it — they all inherently believe they can order President Obama around. At least Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is an actual leader of something. Regardless, read this and ask yourself if you think this would have happened to Presidents Bush, Reagan or Clinton.

**You know Tom...respect is not an entitlement, it is something that you have to work darn hard to earn. Neither trump or pence deserve respect because they do not respect our Constitution, this Country or it's people. So Tommie...STFU!***

1. Great list...........

and the one to this day that STILL gets me SO PIZZED OFF is #2 - "YOU LIE!"

Can you imagine what Cheeto (along with the press and every F**KING RePug would do if a Democrat had done that at Orange Cheeto's first SOTU?

The blind ignorance and short memory of these douche bags just blows my mind!

2. It's worse than that.

Sen Cotton is neither ignorant nor suffers from a failing memory. He is disingenuous, he knows exactly how dishonest he is being.

I live in Arkansas and have watched Sen Cotton since he first entered the public eye. He is dangerous exactly because he is intelligent. Imagine how dangerous Trump would be if he was intelligent - that's Sen. Cotton. It's clear to those of us in Arkansas watching Sen Cotton with growing alarm, that he intends to be the next President from Arkansas.

6. Ditto. And I love his sometimes form letter replies. I write him

regularly and protest at his locked Springdale office.

5. Great list. However...

... I take issue with describing Wilson's "You lie" as a spontaneous loss of control. I believe it was a calculated, planned piece of theatre.

7. Pence could consider earning respect rather than assuming he has it based on his office.

Hate breeds hate and Pence is a master at disguising his behind his Bible thumping.
