In an interview with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt, Sen. Orrin Hatch predicts that the Democrats will play rough and dirty over the next two years as they attempt to shore up their liberal base and get Pres. Obama re-elected.
HH: Do you think you can get the NLRB…I mean, do you hear from your Democratic colleagues that the President has overreached, and that Obama has to back of the attack on Boeing?
OH: I think they’re blatant. I think they figure they can do anything they want to, and they’re doing anything they want to up to these next two years, figuring that they’ll get away with it. And even though they know it’s wrong, you know, it’ll help them shore up their liberal base all over the country.
HH: Wow. And the executive order on the Disclose Act, do you expect that to issue as well, Senator Hatch, 30 seconds?
OH: Well, that’s what they want to do. They want to intimidate all of the corporations in this country and other businesses from giving money that might help Republicans. And they know it’s unconstitutional what they’re doing, they know it’s wrong, but they’re going to go do it anyway, because it’s political time to them. And frankly, it’s been political time from Day One with this president. They play politics very, very tough, they play it well, and they don’t give a damn about what’s right and what’s wrong.
