Nutter Rhetoric from Philadelphia Mayor

“Meager Budgets Cuts Now Declared an ‘Un-American Atrocity'” by the Mayor of Philadelphia,” blogger JammieWearingFool notes:

“When you have a bazooka pointed at your head, it is hard to think about what you will have for breakfast tomorrow,” Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter explained.

He described the House bill as “un-American” and said it is aimed at hurting the poor, elderly and children.

“You cannot run a country while attacking its own people,” he said.

Somehow, I think if I were a Democratic mayor of Philadelphia, I’d find less incendiary language to describe any sort of budget cuts.
