Now one thing is clear scare tactics are par for the course for the Democratic Party.
It was just months ago little liberal group ran this ad depicting a Paul Ryan lookalike running poor old -- -- off a cliff.

I and of course it's rife with double standards.
Particularly when it comes to the column the tenor and the lack of quality of arguments of Debbie Wasserman Schultz herself.
When it comes to the quality of of her argument she is nothing more than Alan Grayson and he'll holes and it -- it when it comes to the home -- up her rhetoric she's nothing more than.
If any -- only an octave high here.

And I guess that comes a point when people are telling you know these bald face lies about you.
Said it angers you.
This seems to be and that -- -- many in the media calls amount on it Republicans react.
And many colonel west maybe went too far here I'll let him decide that.
What is being lied about is just as bad and that's frustrating because I don't think any a lot of people in the country know that.
Right and here is where I salute colonel west.
If it's in his -- instinctual.
Desire to push back when so few has have pushed back before and that is why.
He has garnered the respect of so many in the Tea Party movement it's why He earned.
Public often as some in this in that -- -- week.
He He embodies this sense of disgust.
Among ordinary average grass roots on Americans just -- -- as.
They've done that that you're not just gonna stand for being lied and lied and lied about -- definitely and it's been demagoguery.

And I got another tape.
And this shows the hypocrisy of the left -- nobody else is pointing this out.
This is in fact Harry Reid saying the same thing -- Obama and Biden.
These deficits have resulted in an unprecedented.
And dangerous borrowing spree.
Told that during this spring has grown by trillions of dollars.
How can -- Republican majority and -- congress.
Explain to their constituents.
That trillions of dollars of new debt is good for our economy.
How can they explain.
That they think it's fair to force our children our grandchildren great grandchildren to finances get to higher taxes that's what we'll have to be.
Why is it right to increase our nation's dependence on dependence on foreign creditors.
They should explain this.
Maybe they can convince.
The public -- right.

Throw it right back in their faces keep calling their bluff.
Reminding the American people about their hypocrisy there selective concern about deficits and and the debt limit.
