Maxine Waters Threatens the Blue Dog Democrats

Now this is funny! – Waters warns Blue Dogs to beware in 2010

Liberal frustration started to boil over in the House on Tuesday as negotiations over healthcare reform with centrist Blue Dog Democrats dragged into a second week.

The delay prompted Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) to lash out at the Blue Dogs as hypocritical and even hint that more liberal Democrats might challenge them in primaries.

“On the one hand they don’t want to spend money, but on the other hand they want to spend money when it benefits them or their district,” Waters said on MSNBC, referring to Blue Dogs’ demand to increase Medicare reimbursements for rural physicians.

Seven Blue Dogs on the House Energy and Commerce Committee have effectively blocked the panel from working on the bill for more than a week, saying it’s too expensive and puts too much of a burden on small employers.

Asked if she would recruit more liberal candidates to run against Blue Dogs, Waters said, “That’s normally not done.”

But she added: “There may be people out there listening and observing all of this who may get motivated based on what they’re seeing and throw their hat into the ring.”

What stupid liberal Maxine Waters does not realize; is that the Blue Dog Democrats are there for that very reason, because they are “Blue Dog Democrats!” In words, the only reason why they were elected is because they were so Conservative, that the people felt comfortable electing them. In other words, they are the Democratic Party’s version of RINO’s or Democrats In Name Only or DINO’s. If the Democratic Party decided to do something foolish like run some extremely liberal Democrat in that district; the Republican Party would absolutely annihilate them! 

You would think that someone like Maxine Waters would know something like this. But then again, we are talking about Liberal Democrats.
