He was talking about President Obama’s attempt to use unconstitutional means to bully companies into supporting him and his party. But really, Hatch’s comments sum up the last four years of Reid/Pelosi and Obama/Reid/Pelosi government:
They want to intimidate all of the corporations in this country and other businesses from giving money that might help Republicans. And they know it’s unconstitutional what they’re doing, they know it’s wrong, but they’re going to go do it anyway, because it’s political time to them. And frankly, it’s been political time from Day One with this president. They play politics very, very tough, they play it well, and they don’t give a damn about what’s right and what’s wrong.
Orrin Hatch is a fine Senator and a solid conservative. There have been rumblings about a primary challenge to him; in my opinion, that would be dumb. The conservative movement has limited resources and we are operating in a target-rich environment. Let’s not eat our own.
