Gangsters, Terrorists and Hostage Takers Oh My!!

So we're either terrorists, gangsters, (wait, isn't that the Chicago Way?) or we held the American middle class hostage. Will the left ever run out of hyperbole?

Nadler: Obama gave in to 'a bunch of gangsters' in tax deal with GOP
By Vicki Needham - 12/12/10 12:25 PM ET

Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) called Republicans "a bunch of gangsters" who blackmailed Democrats to ensure that the nation's wealthiest retain their tax cuts.

Nadler, appearing Sunday morning on CBS' "Face the Nation," characterized the Republican stance on the bipartisan compromise on extending the Bush-era tax cuts of "nice middle class tax cut you have there, pity if something would happen to it unless you give millionaires and billionaries" a tax cut. "Unless you give the wealthier a tax cut we're not permitting the middle class to get it."

Nadler expressed concern that Republicans will continue pressing Congress and President Obama for a permanent extension of those tax cuts and if we "succumb to blackmail" now why should there be any expectation that they will have the "political gumption in 2012 to not submit again."
More after the jump

And maybe it will work. Here's hoping anyway. I doubt Nadler heard any Conservative actually say the statement quoted above, but I'm sure he knew thats what they meant.
