House Hearing Room Bursts Out Laughing at Obama's ‘Red Line’ on CR
(CNSNews.com) - People attending a House Rules Committee hearing on Saturday evening burst into laughter when Rep. Jim McGovern (D.-Mass.) affirmed to House Appropriations Chairman Hal Rogers (R.-Ky.) that President Barack Obama, by threatening to veto a continuing resolution to fund the government past Monday if it includes a House amendment to delay Obamacare, has thus “drawn a red line” on the CR.
The committee was meeting to approve the rule by which the House would consider the Senate-passed CR and amendments to it that would repeal a tax on medical devices and delay Obamacare for one year. >>>
The ensuing exchange between Rogers and McGovern on Obama’s veto threat caused the committee chamber to burst into laughter.
Rogers: “Would the gentleman yield?
McGovern: "I happily yield."
Rogers: "You say the president has threatened to veto the bill?"
McGovern: "No, he hasn’t threatened. He said he absolutely will veto."
Rogers: "He’s drawn a red line has he?"
At this point, the small hearing room—which was largely filled with committee members, other members of Congress who had come to testify and congressional staff—burst into laughter.
You've got to love it. The mask has fallen off the Kenyan Greek actor, and the styrofoam columns are in pieces on the ground. He's a laughingstock at home and abroad as more and more of his most famous quotes are becoming punchlines. It even looked like McGovern himself may have finally realized what a laughing stock his party has become under Barky (until he caught himself) or... maybe it was just some gas.
