Those two years Bobby Schilling spent in DC must have really messed with his mind because the kinder, gentler servant’s heart Schilling has been replaced with the unhinged frothing Heart of Chris Matthews.
In a statement after the vote to defund Obamacare but to continue to fund the government in which Dem Rep. Cheri Bustos (D-Durbin) voted lockstep with her party, Bobby Schilling wasn’t having any of that statesman-like b.s.—oh, no. He was all about “…a reckless and irresponsible vote by Rep. Bustos…eager to put this nation’s economic security at risk in order to make a political point to her wealthy liberal friends in Washington…Rep. Bustos has a troubling history of wanting to shut down the government…” etc. etc.
I’m no Bustos fan and I realize there’s a campaign going on, but would it have really hurt Schilling to take the high road and congratulate his GOP buddies in the House and say he was eager to rejoin them to help implement the rest of the Defund-Repeal-Replace plan and BTW Bustos really wasn’t helping by her vote to defund the entire government in order to save Obamacare, etc.
It’s only September but Schilling is going nuclear at every opportunity. Where will he be and what will be left in his arsenal if his nuclear capability is depleted before October ’14?
A little less bombast please, and a lot more thoughtfulness.
