What’s the deal with members of Congress named Sessions? Via HuffPost, here’s Rep. Pete Sessions (R–Tex.) describing Barack Obama’s nefarious scheme to destroy capitalism:
In an interview, Mr. Sessions cited rising unemployment in asserting that the administration intended to “diminish employment and diminish stock prices” as part of a “divide and conquer” strategy to consolidate power.
Mr. Sessions, in his seventh term, said Mr. Obama’s agenda was “intended to inflict damage and hardship on the free enterprise system, if not to kill it.” By next fall, he predicted, voters may regain appreciation for the era of Republican governance when “many dreams were achieved,” the size of the economy doubled and employment and financial markets hit record levels.
Every party has goofballs who say stupid things. But the GOP is apparently trying to get itself into the Guiness Book of World Records or something. I’d sure like to see a complete transcript of this interview, if only for the entertainment value.
