Republican Senator Orrin Hatch: Obama Is A Con Artist

http://www.addictinginfo.org/2012/12/01/republican-senator-orrin-hatch-obama-is-a-con-artist/




Projection: the act of accusing others of doing something you, yourself, have done or are doing. It can either be a psychological defense to protect yourself from the truth of what a lying prick you are OR it can be a cynical ploy used so other people won’t realize what a lying prick you are.

The GOP lives and breathes projection as a matter of survival.

****

And then there’s this via ThinkProgress:

Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) ripped into President Obama’s opening offer on a package to avert the so-called fiscal cliff, during the GOP’s weekly address on Saturday, characterizing the proposal as “radical” and a “classic bait-and-switch.” “Maybe I missed it but I don’t recall him asking for any of that during the presidential campaign,” Hatch said. “These ideas are so radical that they have already been rejected on a bipartisan basis by Congress.”


*****

Perhaps Sen. Hatch is so bitter over losing this year’s election that he’s developed some kind of amnesia. More likely, he’s just shilling for his corporate masters who don’t want to pay their fair share and Hatch just doesn’t want people to realize he’s a dick.

6. Hatch (R-UT) was re-elected. Brown (R-MA) and Lugar (R-IN) lost this year.


Richard Lugar lost his primary election,
and Brown lost in the general election.

Joe Lieberman retired.

16. Hatch really needs to pull the sour pickle out of his butt

It has affected his so-called "thinking." Oh, wait, I forgot, he's a Republican.

How tragic for him and for America.
