I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

What We Need In Congress Is A Guy Like Daniel Hannan

Daniel Hannan has been a Member of the European Parliament representing Southeast England since 1999 and he’s become rather well-known today for this dressing down of British Prime Minister Gordon Brown at the European Parliament in Brussels:

Incidentally, Hannan dressing down Brown in part for the fact that he has left Britain with a deficit equal to 10% of it’s GDP is interesting considering that, thanks to Bush’s bailouts and Obama’s budget, our deficit will be 12% of GDP.

The important question, though, is this — why aren’t there guys like this in our Congress ? If Gordon Brown deserves a dressing down, and he most assuredly does, then so does the American President, be it Obama or Bush before him.
