Desperate Sen. Hatch Uses Cuss Words: ‘Dumb-Ass’ Health Reform
March 1, 2011
(ChattahBox Political News)—The Senate’s Mormon serenader, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT), is so desperately afraid of being primaried by a tea party candidate in 2012 that he is resorting to using cuss words to get attention. In a speech, and question and answer session organized by the student Republicans at Utah State University, Hatch tried out his new potty mouth shtick. Hatch, who has served in the Senate since 1977, lambasted the healthcare reform law, using the words “crap,” and “ass.” Oh my! Apparently responding to the jaw-dropping expressions from his tender-aged conservative audience, Hatch apologized for his profanity, promising to “repent” for his sin. Just look at the photo of Hatch meeting with the late Mother Teresa. What would she think of Hatch’s use of cuss words?
“USU College Republicans Chairman Terry Camp referred to the health care reform bill as “Obama-care,” a euphemism that pundits and politicians who do not agree with the bill have adopted.”
‘”Every state has different demographics, every state has different problems,” Hatch responded. “It’s good to allow them to work out their own problems rather than a one-size-fits-all federal government dumb-ass program. It really is an awful piece of crap.”‘
“Hatch apologized for swearing and said he does not swear often. He said he is passionate about the health care debate and would repent for using the words that he did.”
Hatch also told the young crowd that he was down with the tea party.
“I agree with the Tea Party people. I think it’s about time we reared up in this country and said ‘Enough, we’re spending way too much, we’re going into debt too far,’” Hatch said. “Should President Obama be re-elected, they’re sending you young people down the river.”
Hatch is desperately afraid of losing a Republican primary to a teapartier. And he is attempting to make some noise by pivoting to the far right to avoid becoming another Sen. Bob Bennett (R-UT), who was tossed out like yesterday’s garbage by radical teapartiers.
But besides resorting to profanity, Hatch, already a far-right conservative, doesn’t have much right-wing real estate left. Hatch has already denounced Democratic healthcare reform, as “diabolical” and “Socialize medicine.”
Hatch says about his upcoming election, “Anybody who wants to can run against me, that’s their right, but all I can say is I intend to win.”
If cuss words don’t work, Hatch can always resort to peddling anti-Obama birther smears and wild Glenn-Beckian conspiracy theories. Better yet, Hatch can follow in the footsteps Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA), and laugh in response to a question about assassinating President Obama.
Now that’s a candidacy the tea party can get behind.
