Arrogance runs abound in that cesspool known as Capitol Hill. But there is one man, who believes he is smarter than everyone else and that is Sen. Chuck E. Schumer: Super Genius. I wouldn’t be surprised if he had that moniker blazoned on his business cards, stationary, and website. And after the stunt he played on the tea party the other day, I’m sure he’s basking in the glow of his own brilliance. The Daily Caller reported the following:
New York Democrat Chuck Schumer was the U.S. senator who decided that a group of tea partiers couldn’t meet in a Capitol hearing room with lawmakers on Thursday, new video shows.
“The chairman tells us this event has to be moved,” Lynden Armstrong, the chief clerk of the Senate Rules Committee told Republican Utah Sen. Mike Lee in the video.
When Lee then asked Armstrong who the chairman is, the staffer replied: “Schumer.”
The meeting that Schumer said couldn’t happen in the Russell Senate office building had long been scheduled for tea party activists and lawmakers to discuss the results of the “Tea Party Debt Commission,” a project of the tea party-aligned FreedomWorks organization.
But that’s okay Chuck E. Schumer: Super Genius. The tea party thwarted your little stunt and held their meeting elsewhere. It looks like you’ve been foiled again.
