"The message he wanted to send with the stimulus package -- a new tone of bipartisan cooperation
-- has been lost in old Washington games, as the opposition party finds its voice. If Obama's going to 
salvage something out of his first bipartisan push -- other than Super Bowl leftovers -- it's going to 
have to happen here and now, with the men and women he once called colleagues." 
      -- Rick Klein,   Link

 Why did Obama expect to be treated with respect?
 Why did he expect the rapid dogs to stop biting?

 I'm afraid he's coming off as naive and that's not helping.

The South Vs. Obama 


On January 28, Obama's $819 billion stimulus plan passed the House of Representatives, despite the solid opposition 
of the Confederates. By the Confederates I mean the Republican Party and their allies among Southern conservative 
Democrats. The battle in Washington is not between liberals and conservatives; it is between the Union and the South.

The Republican Party that voted unanimously against the stimulus bill is, in essence, the party of the former Confederacy. 
In the House of Representatives, there is not a single Republican representative from New England. In the U.S. Senate, 
there is not a single Republican from the Pacific Coast...The vote about the stimulus package was not about economics. 
It was about nullification. It was the bipartisan Confederacy sending a message to the rest of America, stricken by the 
greatest crisis since the Depression. That message? Drop Dead.

Why is Obama trying to sway Republicans and backstabbing Democrats?
Are they threatening to veto the Obama Recovery Package?

If I was Obama's Chief of Staff, I'd advise him "Let them fucking try."
People losing their jobs and people losing their homes do not want this package killed.
Whoiever leads the charge to kill this recovery (that's how I'd frame it) will lose the next election.

 Subject: Re: Stimulus and Republicans


Perhaps Obama can offer to cut spending in the states in the stimulus bill for Republican Senators 
who would like the spending cut in their states? All they would have to do is let the Senate leadership 
know that they don’t want some or any of the money that is to be spent in their states cut.

 Subject: Isn't it time to finally legalize Pot?

Now that Michael Phelps has been caught smoking marijuana isn't it about time that we legalize it? 

Marijuana is hardly even a drug and is far less dangerous than legal hard core addictive drugs like alcohol and tobacco. 
Phelps is the latest in a list of successful role models who have smoked pot which includes president Bill Clinton, Al Gore, 
Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dan Quayle, Bruce Lee, Carl Segan, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, John Denver, Oliver Stone, 
Ted Turner, Steve Martin, Chris Rock, Willie Nelson, Tommy Chong, Johnny Cash, and Neil Diamond. 

So isn't it time we stopped this crazy obsession with a substance that is virtually harmless and just legalize it? 
We have enough real problems without having to fight artificial ones.

'Hope is Flickering' on Obama's Torture stand


The ACLU, which has been harshly critical of Bush and praiseworthy of Obama, has fired a torpedo across the Obama bow.

After the British High Court ruled that evidence of a British resident's rendition and harsh interrogation at Gitmo must remain secret 
because of Bush threats to halt intelligence sharing, the Obama Administration offered a terse statement supporting the BBC.

"The United States thanks the UK government for its continued commitment to protect sensitive national security information 
and preserve the long-standing intelligence sharing relationship that enables both countries to protect their citizens," a spokesman said.

In response, the ACLU's executive director, Anthony Romero, shot off a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton asking Obama 
to clarify their position. Romero also said "Obama has now offered more of the same."

"Hope is flickering," Romero said in a statement. "The Obama administration's position is not change. It is more of the same. 
This represents a complete turn-around and undermining of the restoration of the rule of law. The new American administration 
shouldn't be complicit in hiding the abuses of its predecessors."

So - what do we do IF Obama becomes pro-torture?
And this is 16 days after declaring in his inaugural, "America will not torture."

IF Obama threatens to halt intelligence sharing, isn't he, in effect, pro-torture?

 Subject: We'll probably never know

If Bush had a medical device on his back, or illicit help from a wire in his 2004 debates.

If he was drunk in the White House. Fainting from eating a pretzel? 
How stupid do they think we are? Don't answer that.

Bush's missing weekends, his missing year, or three (the one in Alaska, the one doing community service
for no crime on record), Robin (Gertner) Lowman abortion. Lying about his drinking for his flight medicals as a civilian pilot.

So much about his background and condition just slid by the press and the public. 
Now we pay for eight years of an incompetent at the top.

Scott, we'll never know because the whore press and the too-timid Democrats failed to ask.

Cheney warns of new attacks 
 Did he Green-light Osama to attack?


Dick Cheney warned that there is a “high probability” that terrorists will attempt a catastrophic nuclear or biological attack 
in coming years, and said he fears Obama’s "No torture" policies will make it more likely the attempt will succeed. 
Cheney unyieldingly defended Bush administration’s support for torturing helpless suspects. 

And he asserted that Obama will either backtrack on his stated intentions to end those policies or put the country at risk 
in ways more severe than most Americans — and, he charged, many members of Obama’s own team — understand. 

“When people are more concerned about the Constitution than torturing helpless suspects, then I worry,” Cheney said.

Bipartisanship at What Price?
  by E. J. Dionne Jr.

 Whore Post

The coming week will test the strength of President Obama and the Democrats: Will they lose their nerve?

That's a stupid question - even for E. J. Dionne.

Or will they face down a rapidly forming conventional wisdom that would allow them to claim victory 
only if their economic stimulus package passes with substantial Republican support?..

The president's quest for a new tone in Washington also has a practical motive. He believes that economic recovery
is about psychology as well as money and that Americans will have more confidence in the future if they see the nation's
politicians cooperating to resolve the crisis.

Good luck with that.
Rapid dogs can't be reasoned with.
They can be caged and they can be put down.

If achieving bipartisanship takes priority over the actual content of policy, Republicans are handed 
a powerful weapon. In theory, they can keep moving the bipartisan bar indefinitely. And each concession 
to their sensibilities threatens the solidarity in the president's own camp.

Bailouts for Bunglers super-rich Thieves
 by Paul Krugman


Question: what happens if you lose vast amounts of other people's money? 
Answer: you get a big gift from the federal government - but the president says 
some very harsh things about you before forking over the cash.

Am I being unfair? I hope so. But right now that’s what seems to be happening.

Just to be clear, I’m not talking about the Obama administration’s plan to support jobs and 
output with a large, temporary rise in federal spending, which is very much the right thing to do. 
I’m talking, instead, about the administration’s plans for a banking system rescue - plans that are 
shaping up as a classic exercise in "lemon socialism": taxpayers bear the cost if things go wrong, 
but stockholders and executives get the benefits if things go right."ipartisan

The money was stolen by the bastards we now have to bail out.   Why can't they just audit 
the Wall Street bastards and see who made all the millions in the last few years?

These guys got paid every time they made a bad loan - why do we reward that?
And the same guys are still in charge, but now that it's OUR money, they're no longer 
making loans to qualified people and the housing and auto industries are going under.

"A quick word to anyone who wants to bring change and hope to a deeply divided America: Pay your f***ing taxes. 
Tom Daschle failed to pay $128,000 in taxes. That's not $128,000 for a car and driver. That's $128,000 in taxes on
maybe 400,000 dollars. If you're paying $300,000 to $400,000 for a driver, you're driving too much. ' That's how much 
money it would be for Miss Daisy if her driver was actually Morgan Freeman. So Tom Daschle, pay your taxes. 
And stop having Alfred bring you to work in the Batmobile. It's too much money."

Carville: A History Lesson for the Pigboy 


Limbaugh proposes that because the Democrats got roughly 54 percent of the votes to the Republicans’ 46 percent, 
the stimulus package should be allocated along his definition of ideological lines, i.e. 54 percent towards infrastructure 
improvement and 46 percent toward tax breaks for Limbaugh and his friends."...

And he is serious. 

However much one may disagree with the current "daddy" of all Republicans (Beg to differ? See Rep. Phil Gingrey, 
who apologized last week for doubting Rush), you have to admire El Rushbo's principled stance and his well-known 
consistent ideology.

Why surely it seems like just yesterday that Al Gore won the national popular vote in 2000 (and arguably won the 
popular vote in Florida too). Limbaugh must have called for the incoming Bush administration to allocate ideas based 
on the proportion of election returns.

James, take it from me - there's no point in arguing with the vulgar Pigboy.
He has the consistency of warm baby shit and he cannot be reasoned with.

GOP to Rename Midland, TX Courthouse After Giggling Murderer


During the past few months, Bush and his Fascist dogs have been working diligently to shape his legacy. 
Their efforts have included rewriting history in the last days of his presidency, creating the Bush-Cheney Alumni 
Association website to "set the record straight", and working on the “partisan” Bush library and "think tank" at SMU.

Now, the Dallas Morning Whore reports Bush may be getting some help from his friends in Congress:

Texas lawmakers are pushing to name a Midland courthouse for the Giggling Murderer.
Rep. Michael Conaway, R-Midland – Bush’s longtime toady – is pushing the idea. 
All 20 Texas Republicans in the U.S. House have signed on, as well as 10 of the 12 Texas Democrats.

The name change would be ironic considering Bush’s penchant for abusing the justice system. 

Hey, I don't care if they rename the entire state Texas for the sick bastard.
As long as he's gone and can't hurt (or murder) any more people,
anything in Texas that they want to name after the son of a bitch is OK with me.

 Subject: Pigboy's remarks about our president 

You know, Bart, when I learned that the Vulgar Pigboy said that President Obama should be 
"more frightened of me than of Mitch McConnell", and those are his words, not mine, that raised a red flag with me.

When a person says that another person should be frightened of them, I take that to mean that the person 
who makes the remark has something in mind for the second person, and it's not good.

I take Limbaugh's remarks as a serious concern, and I called the Secret Service two days ago to register my concern. 
The person on the other end told me that this would be given to an agent and if there was cause for investigation, the agent would call me. 

I hold out hope that I will get the call, because this time, the Vulgar Pigboy should not be allowed to skate away 
scott free, if you will.  He should be held to account.

Keep Swinging the biggest Hammer in All of the Known Universe, Bart!
