Democrat Blasted by Former Marine in Viral August Town Hall Video is Retiring

U.S. Congressman Brian Baird (D-Wash.) got blasted by a former Marine in what many considered to be the best August health care town hall video. This Video went viral on YouTube and has been viewed over 1.2 million times.

Now, Congressman Baird has decided he can't take the heat and he is retiring. He is the third Democrat from a 'competitive' district to suddenly announce retirement in the last three weeks.

Politico reported:

His decision came as a surprise to House Democrats, and will surely heat up the speculation that other vulnerable House Democrats are looking towards the exits.

“With this being the third retirement by a swing-district Democrat in as many weeks, it is clear that members of the Majority are feeling the ground shaking beneath them," said National Republican Congressional Committee chairman Pete Sessions, in a statement released less than a hour after news of Baird's retirement broke.

This was great!! The former marine really blasted the Democrat. That's good news that he and other Dems are retiring. I guess they just can't handle the heat- good.

Ah well! The best thing is the basic misunderstanding. For instance, the Chicago Football team is named the Bears, does this mean their are actual Bears comprising the team?

I wonder if my Marine brother declined VA health coverage for his injuries because it comes from the government?

I say, "Farewell Congressman Baird. Don't let the door hit you in the butt on the way out."

Somebody stand by the door and make sure it hits his butt on the way out.

The Liberal Mind: Psychological Causes of Political Madness by Dr. Lyle Rossiter
Based on strikingly irrational beliefs and emotions, modern liberals relentlessly undermine the most important principles on which our freedoms were founded,”
“Like spoiled, angry children, they rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood and demand that a parental government meet their needs from cradle to grave.”
“A social scientist who understands human nature will not dismiss the vital roles of free choice, voluntary cooperation and moral integrity – as liberals do,”
"A political leader who understands human nature will not ignore individual differences in talent, drive, personal appeal and work ethic, and then try to impose economic and social equality on the population – as liberals do. And a legislator who understands human nature will not create an environment of rules which over-regulates and over-taxes the nation’s citizens, corrupts their character and reduces them to wards of the state – as liberals do.”
“The roots of liberalism – and its associated madness – can be clearly identified by understanding how children develop from infancy to adulthood and how distorted development produces the irrational beliefs of the liberal mind,” “When the modern liberal mind whines about imaginary victims, rages against imaginary villains and seeks above all else to run the lives of persons competent to run their own lives, the neurosis of the liberal mind becomes painfully obvious.”

If it does hit his butt, somebody make sure to sterilize the door.
