A few days before the Republicans taking over the House of Representatives, a few of the Democrats get cocky on Face the Nation.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) and Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY), square off against Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), Rep. Rep. elect Mike Kelly (R-PA) to make their case for the 112th.
Now I am impressed with Rep Kelly. He is a beltway outsider. Someone from the real world of America who's been engaged with real world, everyday American issues and has a good approach, conviction, work ethics and attitude towards on how he will be involved in righting the American Government ship.
He comes in to congress and appears to be a fighter for the citizens of his district and not for boys and girls of the beltway.
Catch the exchange between Kelly and Wiener and how Wiener becomes cocky when Kelly said "I live in the real world, when people actually have to pay for things. And I loves the fact the 'We are going to pay for it' We are not paying for nothing, not we in Washington, but the American taxpayers. There is such a disconnect between this town (Washington) and the rest of the world"
Weiner response, "This 'real world' business is going to get old real fast This is serious business here"
Wiener just proved Kelly right. There is a disconnect between the Dems in Washington and the rest of the nation.
I got to hand it to Kelly for keeping his cool and not knocking Wiener in to next year.
