It Takes a Special Kind of Ignorant Asshat...

...to blow the state budget up by more than 30% over two years - knowing full well we DON'T HAVE THE MONEY to pay for it - and then turn around and say that those opposed to such fiscal lunacy have "lost their minds".

The thousands of taxpayers who gathered in several locations around the Granite State on Tax Day “didn’t even know what they were protesting,” according to the state’s top Democratic Party official.

“They looked like they lost their minds,” said Ray Buckley, Chairman of the New Hampshire Democratic Party of the protesters.

Buckley’s comments came during a debate against Republican State Chairman and former New Hampshire Governor John Sununu last night. The debate was hosted by the Manchester Chamber of Commerce.

Buckley seemed unwilling to acknowledge tax increases that recently passed the state house during the debate. Instead he threw personal barbs at Sununu and protesting taxpayers.

Be sure to click over and leave your comments for this champion of the "progressive" cause at the link above. My two cents:

Since talking control of the legislature in Concord, the New Hampshire democrats have proposed or passed the following new taxes or tax hikes:

Candy tax
Sales tax
Income tax
Beverage container tax
Cigarette tax
Cigar tax
Estate tax
Meals tax
Capital gains tax

And, those are just the ones I could recall off the top of my head this morning. Add to that their efforts to restrict the people's right to bear arms, and to use the power of the legislature to manipulate and restrict people's personal behavioral choices (wait a minute, I thought Democrats were "pro-choice"...guess not) through seat belt laws, smoking bans, trans fat bans, etc.

Tell me again, WHO'S LOST THEIR MINDS???

Your party has become a body of self-parody, Mr Buckley. To claim that your ideological opponents don't know what they're talking about is a grave insult to the people of New Hampshire that will reverberate throughout the state come election time.

Enjoy your position of power and prominence while you still can.

Have a nice day.
