Sorry, you Biden-puffing Democrat piece of work. I don’t care if you ran through Hell and put out the fires with a shovel.
Rep. Seth Moulton (MA), an Iraq War veteran and progressive Democrat, has refused to apologize to critics — including Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) — for his decision to take an unauthorized trip to Kabul to witness the Biden administration’s Afghanistan withdrawal operations firsthand — and he continued to blast the Biden administration in a tell-all interview with New York Magazine.
I don’t know anything about this can o’ paint — never heard of him. And despite some good deeds done recently, and at personal risk, he can just sit right in the benches on his side of, you know, the thing.
I have no room in my heart for Biden-voting Republicans, no matter what excuse, so this Democrat is not getting any grace from me. Rats from a sinking ship, all. And if he has truly woken to the horror of his party — too late. Ride that ticket to the grave, loser.
A Republican joined him on the trip — I never heard of him either, but I presume he’s okay. Here’s hoping he didn’t also vote for Biden. [EDIT: Actually he did vote to impeach Trump, so he can eat off the floor with Moulton. No wonder they’re friends.]
Moulton said that he and another veteran in Congress, Rep. Peter Meijer (R-MI), knew they would be criticized for the trip, and tried “to be as efficient as possible at finding the truth and saving a few lives.” The pair flew commercial to the United Arab Emirates, where they used connections to get on board a C-17 bound for Kabul, taking seats that would have been empty otherwise. He added that the trip was designed to create minimal interference in the mission and that he and Meijer felt forced to use military contacts when repeated requests to take an official trip were denied.
I’m glad they both went, but one of these things is not like the other. I have no room in my heart for any of these Democrat deep-state cowards. If you got in the musty bed with the party of Biden — stay there and rot.
Alright, I looked up Moulton. Harvard BA in Physics (do they not have a BS program?), four tours in Iraq, USMC Captain (O-3). All sound fantastic. Then why the deep-state socialism? The disconnect is between his service and his politics, not something on this side.Published in
