Republican Rep. Pete Sessions of Texas sure said a mouthful yesterday…
“Insurgency, we understand perhaps a little bit more because of the Taliban,” Sessions said during a meeting yesterday with Hotline editors. “And that is that they went about systematically understanding how to disrupt and change a person’s entire processes. And these Taliban — I’m not trying to say the Republican Party is the Taliban. No, that’s not what we’re saying. I’m saying an example of how you go about [sic] is to change a person from their messaging to their operations to their frontline message. And we need to understand that insurgency may be required when the other side, the House leadership, does not follow the same commands, which we entered the game with.”
Learning tactics from the Taliban to oppose Obama’s stimulus plan?
What do you say to this?
Is he out of his mind?
And do note he doesn’t back down from the “insurgent” talk…
“I think insurgency is a mindset and an attitude that we’re going to have to search for and find ways to get our message out and to be prepared to see things for what they are, rather than trying to do something about them,” Sessions said. “I think what’s happened is that the line was drawn in the sand” by Pelosi.
Sessions said the GOP’s 178 members stand by their votes against the bill.
“I don’t think any one of our members today feels like they would take back that vote,” he said. “… There’s no remorse.”
This should show up on Drudge any minute now…
