Liberal Lies

It's a beautiful and encouraging time in America for conservatives and libertarians!

Liberalism is undergoing a worldwide collapse, American are wise to the failed tactics and policies of progressivism, and liberals here in the US are coming unhinged
  • Nanny states everywhere are groaning under the weight of unsustainable pension plans and public debt, and our politicians foolishly offer us more lollipops, rainbows and a ponies...
  • Former hit songs by Obama and The Pelosicrats have been resigned to the 99 cent bargain bins.
  • Ron Paul could beat Obama in a head to head match-up
60% of Americans want the health care travesty repealed, and it just may happen since congress inadvertently forgot to exempt themselves
"the law may “remove members of Congress and Congressional staff” from their current coverage, in the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, before any alternatives are available. 
 The confusion raises the inevitable question:
If they did not know exactly what they were doing to themselves, did lawmakers who wrote and passed the bill fully grasp the details of how it would influence the lives of other Americans?" (New York Times)
Now, the sniveling cowards in the Democratic party are dodging a basic congressional responsibility:
Congressional Democrats said Tuesday that they may be unable to approve a budget plan this year because many lawmakers are unwilling, in the run-up to the November midterm elections, to ratify a spending blueprint that is certain to include large deficits. 

Although a budget resolution is "important," House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (D-Md.) said, "it is difficult to pass budgets in election years because, you know, they reflect what is the status. And the status of this country was brought into deep debt by the economic policies of the Bush administration." (Wapo - Political Digest)
I hope "It's all Bush's fault" is the Democrat campaign motto this November.  They are too stupid to realize even moderates with no love for Bush are tired of hearing that tune.

Hateful Republicans insist Congress obey the laws it passed
The Senate remains embroiled in a debate over extending jobless benefits as Republicans push for the legislation to be paid for and Democrats try to vilify the GOP for keeping needy people from getting their unemployment checks.  (Washington Examiner)
The Democrats passed Paygo this year, swearing they would find offsetting cuts or raise taxes to pay for new stuff.  How dare the GOP have the temerity to hold them to it!

Political promises are not worth the paper they're printed on, even if that paper is the federal register of US Code that contains the catalog of laws the congress passes and then exempts itself from.

Come November, it's time to take out the trash, America.

I would like to see responsible politicians taking the lead on country-reform, not from the Dem party nor the Rep party but from the Common Sense party.

I have seen republicans do nothing about social security, and democrats destroy our capitalistic society.

The solution to the problem is everyone pays equal amount of taxes! time to deflate the gov so taxes are not so high for everyone.

Where was 'Anonymous' when Bush tried to reform Social Security in 2005?

He (she) says 'I have seen republicans (note the little 'r' here) do nothing about social security...'

Bush gave it a shot, and was resoundly booed. Bush was a Republican, right? Kinda?

TKZ said...

Yes, "kinda" is the right word, I think, Fredd. I don't like claiming Bush as one of my own, personally, but that's just me. At least he tried on the Social Security thing. People think that because that agenda item failed that it must have never been attempted. It seems that those people now assume that a president can and/or should act dictatorially without regard to the will of Congress to push through his agenda. Just because it didn't make it through doesn't mean he didn't try. They want to see "change" so they're OK with giving Obama powers he was never intended to have under the constitution in order to get things done. That's a big problem. Some people want a dictator and they're getting what they voted for.

Say, what happened to the "He's president, get over it" and the "he's the president, we need to support him" and criticizing the president is emboldening the enemy" even when his approval was in the toilet -- that position is no longer operative, I guess.

Talk about comic relief!

The president does not serve at the will of the congress! The Republicans do not have a majority in either house, remember?

If 60% want the insurance reform repealed, I'd be quite surprised as public desire for health care reform was in the area of 70 - 75% in 2008. If it's lower, the lies about death panels and the rest of the hysteria hasn't helped.

Of course his ratings are now below 50%, but when Bush's were 24% the mantra was still that we have to support the president who was a great man for "standing on principle." What a difference a party makes.

Yes, a "dictator" Certainly that's not supercharged hyperbole - oh no. Far be it from me to talk about "conservative lies and demented hysteria or any other kind of rhetorical excess like them pesky, stupid, tyrannical, marxist, fascist, wild eyed "libs" do.

It just wouldn't be fair to make jokes about someone reasonable enough to equate health insurance with tyranny and the kind of Marxist exploitation you find in Switzerland and Massachusetts and Hawaii.

Nice pic of the denture lady! I see Janet Reno and Janet Napolitano now have some keen competition for the annual "Regressive Beauty Pageant."
