That’s because Congress has become the domain of the evil white Republican that can, according to community organizer Alinskyism, be simply ignored as reactionary forces to the ultimately prevailing revolution.
The Constitution doesn’t matter, as long as the Supreme Court decides it doesn’t, like this past Summer over Obamacare.
I’m convinced that the Republic is dead. All hail the glorious people’s revolution!
Wallace counters Geithner and says the ‘winding down the war’ spending is a budget gimmick.
Geithner claims it is real.
Wallace implies that the Obama Admin would then need more wars to have that amount to apply to the budget.
“A lie repeated a thousand times becomes truth”
—Hitler, in Mein Kampf
Timmy said they have lots of budget cut. They're counting the money they're cutting by winding down 2 wars ... Chris Wallace was shocked!
All hail the glorious peoples revolution!
Yes, we are there. I well remember the years when Americans were inconvenienced by industrial workers’ strikes. As a lover of language I noticed what was said, and then reported about the positions and demands of both sides in the negotiations.
Summary: the workers asked for the moon, knowing that they would advance as far as they could intimidate the ‘suits’ into accepting.
This is exactly what Geithner, Obama, Jarrett and the other Red Diaper Doper babies in office today are doing.
There is NO way that Republicans can ever win the approval of the media and the general public, so they have to face this fact. The suits in long gone industries never had the support of the media and the public - they were the RICH!!!
What happened, though: the entire workforce lost their nice incomes in the quest for ever more.
I see our country in the same position as, for example, the steel industry of the 1980s.
Scary and extremely depressing.
Saw Geithner on FNS, I could feel my blood pressure rising just watching the smarmy little weasel.
Boner now up with Wallace denying Geithner’s positions talking about RATs taking us “over the cliff”.
WE’VE ALREADY GONE OVER THE CLIFF!
Boehner says the Admin would spend all the money if they got it.
Wallace, almost incredulous, ‘they wouldn’t pay down the debt with it?’
Boehner laughs, ‘no they wouldn’t.’
Wallace starts a list of what will and won’t be cut.
[typical of setup for a ‘gotcha’]
Boehner doesn’t take the bait, says he won’t debate specifics with Wallace unless/until Wallace has authority to sign any budget deal.
WOw - hope your big day goes smoothly. I’m sure you will look beautiful and sound like angels! Blessings to you and your congregation today!!
On the other hand, I am dumbfounded by Obie's audacity with a request for unlimited debt limits. It's so over-the-top, R's are forced to say no.
So, which game are we playing with our country's well being ?
Sorry folks, but Boner sounds as smarmy as Geitner.
I am SO sick of politics right now and all the wrangling, whining, backstabbing, never-ending campaigning, crooks running government, etc. that I do not have the stomach to watch any of them on TV these days. I’ve been watching a lot of Christmas movies every evening (Hallmark, etc.). It’s ‘escapism’ ... but necessary for my psyche. Thanks for the thread - at least I can find out what the current version of the latest lies happens to be without having to actually watch them utter the words.
You make it happen by continuing to get more TEApublicans elected until they take over leadership within the House and Senate Republican Cockeye.
This could happen in the next election. IF TEA-activists and candidates "git-er-done"
Meanwhile over on mtp dnc dave is apoplectic in getting our side to admit that we ware willing to bend over and raise tax rates and break our no tax pledge. Its a if dnc Dave is Hitler and is demanding that we raise taxes even though it wont help.DNC dave is desperate to get us to admit that ozero is a legitimate potus and he should demand respect. Never gonna happen.
DNC Dave phrases every argument that its always our fault for not raising taxes,never a word about cutting spending.
Let it bleed!
Excellent job, keep up the good work sir.
Take a look at what they DID. They've now been in there for a while, the TEApublicans were mostly freshman, and the others have a longer track record.
Any of them can be taken out in two years. It's time to get ready for the next mid-terms.
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN....START YOUR ENGINES!
Fox news panel. All should roll over for Obama. The press still covers his butt left or right.
