Democrats’ Greatest Hits: A 2013 Video Retrospective (Now Send Us Your Favorites)


The Washington Free Beacon has put together a video montage of the stupidest things that Democrats have said in 2013, drawing from the oratories of leftist talking heads, elected officials and Obama Administration appointees to compile a train wreck of gaffes, dissemblings and bone-headed obfuscations.

Our favorite is State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki telling the AP in August that “there was a determination made that we need to — not need to make a designation” over whether the U.S. would regard the ouster of former Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi as a coup d’état. It’s almost painful to watch Obama’s staffers die inside, little by little, each time they attempt to maintain dignity while telling mind-bendingly absurd lies that hew to the party line.

But there’ll always be a special place in our hearts for Vice President Joe Biden’s “boom!” pantomime in January, when he stood up in front of a bunch of mayors at a Washington, D.C. conference, put on his best wooden-toothed grin, and pretended to shoulder-fire his most beloved 2nd-Amendment-approved weapon: the humble 12-gauge.

What do you think? Did they miss any other silly sayings from Democrats in 2013?

Hey, while you’re at it, give us your favorite (or least favorite) one-liners from Republicans as well. We’ll put them in a separate, year-end post if we get some quality submissions.

Personal Liberty

Ben Bullard

Reconciling the concept of individual sovereignty with conscientious participation in the modern American political process is a continuing preoccupation for staff writer Ben Bullard. A former community newspaper writer, Bullard has closely observed the manner in which well-meaning small-town politicians and policy makers often accept, unthinkingly, their increasingly marginal role in shaping the quality of their own lives, as well as those of the people whom they serve. He argues that American public policy is plagued by inscrutable and corrupt motives on a national scale, a fundamental problem which individuals, families and communities must strive to solve. This, he argues, can be achieved only as Americans rediscover the principal role each citizen plays in enriching the welfare of our Republic.
