Being a Dick or Prick? III

Having written here on Dick Armey before, Being a Dick or a Prick?, and just viewing a video clip of the "Bill Moyers Journal" this director of FreedomWorks, whose organization has been funding disruptive town halls and Tea Party marches all around the country including the 9/12 march in Washington last week, Dick is sounding more and more like a prick.

Below is an exerpt of what Bill Moyers says of Armey after showing a video clip of protesters at the 9/12 march in Washington who say that they are more afraid of President Obama than Osama and afraid that President Obama would do what Hitler was not able to do, destroy America. Although I have included an except below, the video is a must see. You can watch Moyers expose Dick Armey's hypocritical history in the House of Representative and his deceptive leadership of Tea Party protesters here.

Here's the catch. Something these marchers who came to Washington at Armey's urging could hardly be expected to know. For most of his adult life, their leader has benefited from just the kind of government tax-supported health care he's fighting to keep them from having too.

It's a fascinating run down of Armey's adult life working in universities and for the government, made comfortable and secure by state-funded health care -- "the Cadillac of coverage."

Dick Armey is the epitome of those people with power and privilege who are insured against the vicissitudes of life and want no government assistance for any suffering except their own."
Uh, pretty pricky, eh?

Wouldn't it be great to see the enlightened and perceptive Bill Moyers lead a counter "army" of responsible, informed individuals who could undermine Dick Armey's agenda? I can see the signs now, "America can bloom again, just weed out one prick at a time."

Yeah, Marion. he's sounding more and more like a prick. I hated the exchange he had with Joan Walsh. He appears to be mysognistic as well and he's married--poor woman! His wife actually appeared with him side by side at the Tea Party in Washington. That was a first I think. I wonder if he needed her for a show of unity. These politicians often use their wives for such showings.
