Opposition: The Act of Opposing or Resisting
Dumb?Senator Diane Feinstein descibed the opposition as the biggest stumbling block to passing her proposals. Well Duh?
"The opposition is venal. They come after you, they put together large amounts of money to defeat you," she said on CNN's "State of the Union." "They did this in '93, and they intend to continue it." Sen. Feinstein
Substitute NRA for opposition and you'll have the exact quote. But think about it for a minute, isn't the opposition supposed to oppose? If they were in agreement with you they wouldn't be the opposition.
Dumber?Our President recently said that Republicans:
"may not feel compelled to pay attention to broad-based public opinion, because what they're really concerned about is the opinions of their specific Republican constituencies,”Who does he think Republican representatives are supposed to represent? Should the Republicans of Colorado's 5th congressional district be representing the interests of the democratic voters in Colorado's 2nd? Need we point out that the representatives are doing their job representing their constituencies? The representatives of Colorado's 5th or California's 42nd are not supposed to be representing anybody else, let alone 'broad-based public opinion'.
