CHICKENHAWK REPUBLICAN TANCREDO STORMS OFF MSNBC SET AFTER DAILY KOS' MARKOS CONFRONTS HIM ON VETERANS HEALTH CARE
On MSNBC Friday night, David Shuster (filling in for Ed Shultz) addressed hateful signs at Thursday's Capitol Hill "House call" against health care reform.
But the discussion escalated into a fight that led a Republican guest to walk off the set.
Former Colorado congressman Tom Tancredo refused to criticize Republican leaders for participating in the event, saying there were equally offensive signs at anti-Bush rallies in the past. He said they should talk about the policy, not the signs.
Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitas defended health care reform, pointing out that the military uses government-run health care. Tancredo said veterans complained about their health care and would much rather have a private choice.
"Tom, I'm a veteran. Okay?" Moulitas responded. "I did not get a deferment because I was too depressed to fight a war I supported in Vietnam. I'm a veteran. They want a more effective V.A. ..."
"You're not going to do that. You're not going to try to insult me that way and then pretend like we're just going on and talk about that. You either apologize ..." When Moulitas did not apologize, Tancredo simply took out his earpiece and walked away.
As a Republican student activist, Tancredo spoke out in favor of the Vietnam War but did not serve.

Tancredo said he went for his physical, telling doctors he'd been treated for depression, and eventually got a deferment.
