Fmr. Senate Candidate Christine O’Donnell Hates On the Unemployed

Riddle me this. How are you standing in the (proverbial) unemployment line, yet throwing stones at others in the same line with you?
That’s the case with former Delaware U.S. Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell. She has taken great issue with Monday’s agreement by President Obama to grant a 13-month extension of unemployment benefits. Never mind that the deal came with an across-the-board continuation of the tax cuts. She supports that part.
“Tragedy comes in threes. Pearl Harbor, Elizabeth Edwards’s passing and Barack Obama’s announcement of extending the tax cuts, which is good, but also extending the unemployment benefits,” O’Donnell told an audience in Virginia earlier this week.
What in the hell is she talking about? How do you compare Elizabeth Edwards’s passing to unemployment benefits? Then on top of that she compares it to this week’s anniversary of a historical event? This woman makes absolutely no sense.
It also doesn’t make sense that she’s kinda unemployed after losing the Senate race in Delaware last month, but she is hating on Americans receiving unemployment benefits. Also, how do you support the tax cuts that cause more debt, but want to do away with other benefits that also add to the same debt? Get this heifer a calculator ASAP!!
Of course, O’Donnell has every right to look down on the unemployed because their hands are out for assistance. Not everyone has the luxury, like she did, of using campaign funds like a personal ATM to pay their bills.
It’s funny how these losers still end up on top, though. Ms. O’Donnell can pass on her unemployment benefits for now because she received a book deal after losing her Senate race. According to the New York Daily News, she is also forming a political action committee.
