Neanderthals

We're Neanderthals now, according to Maxine Waters (D-CA), who says that Senate opposition to our President's healthcare plan can be won over by a tough stance. Then Waters made a public appeal to Obama.
"The people of this country elected you and gave you a Democratic majority in the House and the Senate. . . . Yes, we know that you are a nice man, that you want to work with the opposite side of the aisle. But there comes a time when you need to drop that and move forward," Waters said. "We're saying to you, Mr. President, 'Be tough. Use everything that you've got. Do what you have to do. And we have your back."
She's right. The Democrats have commanding majorities in both houses. All they need do is call it to a floor vote. Own it. But Waters saves her best shot for the Democrats who oppose the President.
"Not only are we going to do everything we can to organize and put pressure on the senators -- some of whom are Neanderthals -- we're going to say to the president, 'We want you to use every weapon in your basket in order to get those senators to do what they should be doing,' " Waters said.
Neanderthals. Dude!

I can see the new headline now.
Opposing the President. So easy a caveman can do it.

Maxine Waters has repeatedly demonstrated that she hasn't nearly the intellect of cold dishwater.

The more she babbles, the worse the democr.....American Communists look.
