Rep. Maxine Waters is drawing fire for her description of House Republican leaders as “demons.” Fox News reports that the California Democrat made the comments last weekend at a convention in San Diego while rallying support for her party to win back control of the House in November

"I saw pictures of Boehner and Cantor on our screens (at the convention). Don't ever let me see again, in life, those Republicans in our hall, on our screens, talking about anything. These are demons," she told the crowd. "They are bringing down this country, destroying this country, because they’d rather do whatever they can do destroy this president rather than for the good of this country.”

Needless to say, those comments didn't win her any friends on the other side of the aisle. "That is a sad and unfortunate speech from a senior House Democrat, particularly at a time when we should be trying to find common ground on ways to get Americans back to work," Cantor spokesman Brad Dayspring said Wednesday.
