Another Politician has stepped into the OVER THE TOP category with these remarks:
Governor Deval Patrick [D-MA], even as he decried partisanship in Washington, said today that Republican opposition to President Obama’s agenda has become so obstinate that it “is almost at the level of sedition.”
Patrick says Obama critics are 'almost at the level of sedition'
After the forum, Patrick explained his remarks.

“I think that the number of people in the Grand Old Party who seem to be absolutely committed to saying ‘no,' whenever he says ‘yes,’ no matter what it is, even if it’s an idea that they came up with, is just extraordinary,” the governor told reporters after the forum.

But did the opposition really border on sedition?

“That was a rhetorical flourish,” Patrick said. [Emphasis Mine]

This kind of Political Posturing does not help.
