I watch this and I shudder. This woman was a United States Senate candidate. Christine O’Donnell calls herself a policy wonk a little after 2:20 and Soledad responds a little later with “You’re a policy wonk now? When did that happen?”. Love Soledad O’Brien.
O’Donnell also said:
“A lot of people would disagree with me to say when they hear these I believe Marxist sound bites coming from our own president. I would say they’re Marxist because of the things that you hear coming from him about share the wealth, economic equality – and these sound bites might sound good and noble on the surface, but the problem is there’s quantifiable data that prove that they simply don’t work and we’re a free market economy that’s supposed to empower the individual, let each person use their gifts, use the rewards to create a better life for themselves instead of what Barack Obama is posing, a tax code that punishes hard work, a tax code that reduces everybody to exactly the same.”
Well – that’s not what Obama is proposing and if she is a policy wonk … I’m a french fry.
