A little slice of rhetorical pie from Dennis Rehberg

Dennis Rehberg, on August 1, 2007, after voting against the House CHIP bill:

[Rehberg said the bill is] based on an "extremist political ideology" to expand government-run health care....

"They (Democrats) are pushing forward an agenda of eliminating affordable, reliable health insurance from private providers and shifting to an inefficient, costly, government-run health care plan," he said in a statement late Wednesday.

Me, on August 3, 2007:

I suspect once the sh*t starts hitting the fan, Representative Rehberg will do an about turn. Kinda like he did on Real ID. It's dang hard being a radical conservative in this day and age!

Me, on August 7, 2006:

Well, to be fair to Dennis, I did say he'd probably change his opinion on the issue once he realized how popular it is. Expect some backtracking from his quotes this week later next year.

(BTW, while that's written as a slam, it's also acknowleging DR's political skill in appeasing the base while simulataneously not obstructing popular legislation...)

Denny Rehberg on August 10, 2007:

Montanans have heard a lot in the news in the past several months about the Children's Health Insurance Program, or CHIP. Since the program was started in 1997, it has done wonders for kids who don't qualify for Medicaid but can't afford private health insurance both in Montana and across the United States.

In fact, as of last month, 14,304 Montana kids are enrolled in CHIP and have benefited from the coverage it provides. This program is working and it should be reauthorized so it can continue to work for the kids that need it most.

Classic Dennis Rehberg! Now he can say he supported CHIP, while voting against it on technicalities, and, by the way, it's extremist ideology! A little slice of rhetorical pie for every Montanan.

Ugh (0.00 / 0)
I think I see a new series in your future.  I like the title rhetorical pie. 

Esh, this is exactly what I was ranting about last night.
