the raw footage is everywhere,
but, for whatever reason, tonight, i
feel an abiding need to speak truth
into the face of his arrogance. this
man is paid by me — he works for
me — he is supposed to listen to me.
dick — are you listening? two-thirds
of us, your bosses — we are speaking to
you — and we have been, for nearly three
and one half years, now. this is not a
fleeting “fluctuation” of fickle opinion.
this is almost all of your second term.
[this is the sort of arrogance
that, over eight-hundred-years ago,
brought sir william wallace’s steel
to bear mightily, upon the reign
if england’s edward longshanks,
dick — be mindful of your tone
with me. if you act like a king,
you may expect the same eventual
outcome — the end of your way of
governing. . . and perhaps, the
end of your continued-liberty.
