Rep. Grayson: GOP Would Only Win a ‘Nobel Prize for Hatred’ Fear, Racism

October 10, 2009

(ChattahBox)—Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson from Florida, continues to pull no punches, when it comes to his opinions of Republicans and their obstructionism. Appearing on MSNBC’s Ed Schultz show on Friday, Grayson let loose on the right-wing’s classless and vitriolic statements regarding the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize to President Obama.

When Ed Schultz asked Rep. Grayson to comment on the Republicans’ across the board negativity, hysteria and hate directed towards President Obama, after he received the Nobel Peace Prize, Grayson noted that the GOP would not be receiving such a prize in the near future.

Grayson: “I think I understand their disappointment. They’re not going to be winning the Nobel Peace Prize themselves anytime soon. They probably wish there was a Nobel Prize for fear, a Nobel Prize for hatred, a Nobel prize for racism. You know, then they’d be in the running, but I don’t think they’re going to be winning a Nobel Peace Prize soon.”

Ironically, earlier in the week, Grayson spoke on the House floor blasting the Republicans, as the “Party of No” who opposed the President, no matter what he proposed, regardless of the cost to Americans.

Grayson: “They [Americans] understand that if Barack Obama was somehow able to cure hunger in the world, the Republicans would blame him for overpopulation. They understand that if somehow Barack Obama could somehow bring about world peace, they would blame him for destroying the defense industry. In fact, they understand that if Barack Obama has a BLT sandwich tomorrow for lunch they would try and ban bacon. But that’s not what America wants.”

Grayson went on to say that the Republicans’ extreme and petty reaction to Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize, would hurt them in the eyes of the American people.

“People are going to be embarasssed to be Republican before much longer,” said Grayson
