Speaking Of Warner Quotes, Who Is The Real Partisan?Oct 06, 2008
(This post was updated on October 9 to include the actual audio on this thread rather than the link to its Web page. - The admin) We posted the transcript of this quote a while ago, but it comes back to our attention since now it is available on YouTube. At least the audio of it is. Unless you doubt someone's real attitude, despite what he says about being "bipartisan," listen to his actual rhetoric. For example, below is the audio of an infamous quote from former Governor Mark Warner, now the Democrat nominee for the U.S. Senate in Virginia. Former Governor Jim Gilmore is his Republican opponent. The transcript is below the audio box and is more complete than the one provided in the box. Read it as you listen: It is Mark Warner telling a group of Democrat partisans what he really thinks of Christians, gun owners, pro-lifers, home-schoolers and others.
One of the things you are going to see is a coalition that is just about completely taken over the Republican Party in this state and if they have their way it's going to take over state government. It is made up of the Christian Coalition, but not just them. It is made up of the right-to-lifers, but not just them. It's made up of the NRA, but not just them. It is made up of the home-schoolers, but not just them. It's made up of a whole coalition of people that have all sorts of differing views that I think most of us in this room would find threatening to what it means to be an American.
Funny how he said this to a particular group when he thought rural voters, Christians and others whose votes he courts posing as a "moderate" weren't listening. Remind anyone of where and under what circumstances someone else's "bitter and clinging to their guns and religion" comment was made?
