On Hardball Mike Pence is asked about the Tea Partiers who mocked the man with Parkinson's disease at the rally in Ohio. You can tell it was killing Pence to even have to answer him because he's been out there helping to whip these people into a frenzy and doesn't want to cross them. Pence calls the behavior "despicable" and awful and claims he doesn't want to excuse what the man did and then goes on to excuse it in the next breath and says they have a right to be angry. Never mind the part he's played in helping to incite them along with his fellow members of Congress. I cannot imagine the Democrats going out there and giving the kind of speeches we've heard out of the likes of Bachmann, Pence, DeMint and the rest of them and not being asked if they felt any responsibility for the actions of the protesters by the media. As always IOKIYAR.
