  That sounds funny coming from a man who

"I'm listening to the president's appearance today at the House Democratic retreat -- an analogue 
  to last week's appearance before the Republicans. And I notice that whereas the message from the 
  Republicans last week was 'you Democrats sure do suck', the message from the Dems standing and 
  asking questions of Obama seems to be 'we Democrats sure do suck.'"

The deficit blame game
 by Gene Lyons


If President Obama's recent face-to-face meeting with congressional Republicans had been a prizefight, 
they'd have stopped it: Obama by TKO. It was such a mismatch that Fox News, unofficial network of the GOP, 
basically conceded defeat by cutting away 20 minutes before it ended. Other networks showed it all.

Republicans appeared to make the elementary mistake of believing their own ... um, propaganda. 
Believe it or not, Obama's use of Teleprompters has convinced GOP stalwarts that he's kind of thick. 
I get frequent e-mails to that effect from people who marveled at the wit and wisdom of George W. Bush.

I know, I know. That's what they think, is all I'm saying.

House Republicans shouldn't have allowed the encounter to be televised. 
But then believing their own disinformation is basically what makes them Republicans.

ha ha

Does anybody say it better than Gene Lyons?

Subject: Obama in Baltimore

Bart, that Quin Hillyer wrote about Obama:

> "What an arrogant so-and-so...His tone was utterly inappropriate, his body language even worse." 
Uppity, wasn't he?
 Suzanne the pillar

Did you notice how they have to criticize him for imaginary things?
They can't find fault in his words because he just listed a bunch of facts.

So they go after his tone, his body language and "He acts as if..." and
"his sense of his own exaltedness."

Quin also called him a "prevaricator," which means liar, but of course,
he was unable to mention a single lie he told.

They have to attack him on intangibles 
because he kicked their ass on all the tangibles.

Republicans VS. The Military


For much of the Bush-Cheney era, Republican leaders characterized themselves as more than just allies 
of the military establishment, but also deferential to the military's judgment on national security matters. 
"Listen to the commanders on the ground" became a common adage in GOP circles.

But over the last year or so, it's become increasingly apparent that it's President Obama and his team 
that are aligned with the military establishment, leaving Republicans at odds with the brass they used to revere...

Obama has spent a year following the guidance of military leaders, and Republicans have spent a year 
breaking with the judgment of the military establishment.

It's a fascinating dynamic. On everything from civilian trials to Gitmo to torture, we have two distinct groups
-- GOP leaders, the Cheneys, Limbaugh, and conservative activists on one side with Obama, Gen. Petraeus, 
Secretary Gates, Colin Powell, etc. on the other...McConnell and his Republicans cohorts are reluctant to admit it, 
and political insiders have been slow to acknowledge it, but what we're witnessing is exceedingly rare
-- the Republican establishment openly rejecting the judgment of the military establishment.

Who is President Matters


It does matter who is in the White House. It does matter which party he belongs to.
I hear otherwise every day here. "Republicans and Democrats are no different". 
"Bought and paid for by the same corporate masters".

The only problem with those assertions is that they are wrong. It is hard to analyze the differences 
between parties and politicians much of the time, since there is so much going on. Yes, campaign 
contributions come from big business as well as from individual donors. Yes, one party ends up 
incorporating proposals from the other party to get bills passed.

But the two parties are different. Yes, they are. You may not like either of them, and that's fine. 
Go out and start one of your own, or just stay at home and bitch about it while doing nothing. Fine.

But, if both parties are bought and paid for by the same corporate masters, then why don't 
Democratic Presidents give them their money's worth? Why do the Republicans consistently 
deliver for big business, but Democrats frequently turn around and stab their masters in the back?

I'm not sure I get what he's saying, but I've always said if both parties 
serve the same master, why do Democrats surrender so often?

The Republicans make demands and those demands are met.
Democrats sheepishly beg for a handout and they are told to GFY.

Subject: Rahm's 'fucking retarded' comment

Hey Bart,

I think Rahn should have called the plan for liberal groups to run ads against 
conservative democrats "nigger-rigged" and then see what the fall out would be.  

I see the word "nigger rigged" as something sloppily thrown together in a lazy manner 
by a bunch of morons with no expectation that it will last or even work. 

I don't understand why anybody with a nigger as a loved one would be offended by that.
 Joe with a special needs child

I can tell you're trying to make a point, but I don't get it.

"Nigger" is a word that's in a category all by itself. 

My point is that the word "retarded" does NOT apply to your son or daughter
but, if I read you correctly, you're insisting that it does, which I find confusing.

When you look up the word "retarded" in the dictionary, it warns the reader
that the word is sometimes offensive - but you seem to be saying it's always offensive.

I think the word "retarded," like the Dr Laura Naked pictures, is too widely disseminated
to try to mount a campaign to get people to stop using it - especially comedians..

I agree the president's chief of staff ought not to be using it.

O'Reilly the scared pussy

He had Jon Stewart in his studio - on tape.

He knew Jon might get the better of the argument so they taped the interview
so the O'Reilly assholes could cut out Jon's best points to give Big Pussy an advantage.

Not only that, but he never let Jon finish a sentence.
Jon would get 6-8 words into it and O'Rielly would break in to kill his rythym.
That's a trick the liars use - never let the other guy make a point. 

That's one thing Stewart has on everybody - that's why rethugs love going on The Daily Show,
because they know Jon will let them make their point and complete their pitch.

But O'Reilly is too much of a coward to face Stewart man-to-man.

...and Jon's on O'Reilly again tonight.

Fool the Dems Twice


Senate Democrats have pivoted, at times clumsily, from a universal focus on health care reform 
to a universal focus on jobs legislation. But is jobs destined to get bogged down by the same 
legislative morass that ultimately stymied health care? Democrats say not on their watch.

Yesterday, Politico reported that Sen. Max Baucus (D-Backstabber) had told Democratic leadership 
that he'd like to take a crack at some elements of the Democrats' burgeoning job proposal in his 
Finance Committee. The news gave progressives, and rank and file Democrats flashbacks to the 
Baucus-led Gang of Six negotiations on health care reform, which dragged on for months and 
ultimately failed to secure any Republican votes.

But numerous Senate aides said today that the jobs push is--and will be--different. 
They say the sense of urgency is greater, and that leadership is busily figuring out how to 
enact a meaningful jobs package as expeditiously as possible...

Ultimately leadership will make that decision, and a Democratic Senate aide confirms that 
Baucus will support whatever decision Harry Reid makes.

"He is definitely on board," the aide said.

So, after killing health care reform for everybody, 
now Baucus wants to be a team player and contribute?

Subject: socialized health care

Bart, 20 years ago, I met a Canadian who had come to the US for a liver transplant at the same time as my brother 
had his. They were hospital roommates. Back then you didn't have much chance of getting a transplant in the US if you 
couldn't pay most of the expenses yourself.   I can't say for sure what Bill's surgery cost but my brothers cost over $100,000.  

The Canadian government paid for everything for Bill, including medications that were prohibitively expensive back then. 
And his wife stayed in the US - all expenses paid by the gov.- for the entire six months he was here. At the same time, 
I met an American woman in that same hospital who needed a kidney transplant, the easiest and most successful kind 
at the time, who couldn't get the surgery because she was on welfare. 

It's hard to believe the Democrats could screw this up as badly as they have.
Obama refused to come to work and people will die because he didn't do his damn job.

You'd think selling "health" would be a no-brainer, but not for the Democrats.

Somehow, the Rethugs have convinced a majority of idiots that they'd rather surrender 
to death than subject themselves to something as horrible as "socialized medicine."

There is no limit to Democratic laziness or stupidity.

Gibbs: Democrats are helpless without GOP


There was a spirited exchange between Robert Gibbs and reporters at today’s press briefing 
that may irk those diehards who are still holding out hope that Dems will try to reform the filibuster:

GIBBS: One party is not going to solve these - not going to solve all these problems. One party is not going to make –

QUESTION: Why not? Why is one party not capable  - when one party controls the House, Senate and the White House?

GIBBS: No, no, no, no, no - welcome to Washington. One party is not going to be able to solve all these. 
             The American people want both parties to work together to solve these.

This is the emerging talking point from the White House and Congessional leadership: 
Dems will never be able to get anything done without cooperation from Republicans.

But the Republicans never had this problem.
When a GOP president barks, "Get behind me," the Democrats wimper and obey.

Worse, our Democrats obeyed Bush and told Obama to GFY.

Why can't Dems think?


When, oh when, will this administration wake up?

Bit by bit, circumstances are forcing President Obama and his aides to come to grips with reality. 
The original plan to try Khalid Sheik Mohammed in New York City has apparently been aborted. 
It finally occurred to the Justice Department that cordoning off much of Lower Manhattan and placing 
a security perimeter around the financial district not only would cost something like $200 million a year 
but also would destroy the economy of the area. A trial there would give KSM, as he is called, 
a second shot at devastating downtown New York.

It is amazing that no one thought this through. Published reports say that the Justice Department informed 
Mayor Michael Bloomberg of its plan just about the time it was announced. This alacrity was clearly the 
product of some excitement down at Justice -- yet another chance to show the world that George W. Bush 
was gone and with him the odious attempts to treat terrorists as if they were, well, terrorists. A civilian trial! 
Right in the heart of Manhattan! Obama ought to ask his friend Attorney General Eric Holder what in the 
world he was thinking -- just as we might ask Obama why he has such faith in Holder's judgment.

"Nancy Pelosi - I swear - does anybody else think that Nancy Pelosi is beginning to look 
  a little like Skeletor?...Is it just me? Am I remembering her more fondly or has she had like 
  massive plastic surgery lately? And every time she blinks it’s getting so stretched and I feel 
  like it must hurt when she blinks. Ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow."
      -- Glenn Beck,     Link

 We must assume that Beck loves Pelosi's politics.

 If he had a problem with anything she stands for, he'd mention it, right?
 But apparently Pelosi's political positions are identical to Beck's.

 Otherwise he would attack her for something of substance, 
 not silly personal attacks on her appearance.

Random thought...

I don't understand why people criticize Obama for "saving the banks."

You'd have to be really old to remember the Great Depression first hand, but if the 
banks failed in late 2008, wouldn't that have led to mass panic and war in the streets?
Wouldn't every city in America become another New Orleans after Katrina?

Pick two examples - gasoline and food.
Your local gas station is out of gas because the bank failed and there's no way
to purchase gasoline because there's no more credit cards or checks - right?

And forget going to the grocery store because the giant food companies
(Kelloggs, Del Monte, Coca Cola etc) can't ship any products because
there's no gasoline and even if there was some, the store can't write checks
to pay for the food so why bother to deliver it?

If the big banks fail it stands to reason that your local bank would fail 
and what condition would America be in then?

I Hate Gays Quotes

"Does anybody care about don’t ask, don’t tell anymore?   If the military would say 
 'Look, in our culture with the military recruiting mostly conservatives, (all the polls show that) 
  and traditional military families. They’re not comfortable with openly gay people in the barracks.' 
  I think that’s a moral issue that is a legitimate issue." 
      -- Bill O'Reilly (R-Big Pussy),    Link

 So, what if the cavemen in the military aren't comfortable with Blacks?

 What if they're not comfortable with Jews?
 What if they're not comfortable with women?
 What if they're not comfortable with Mexicans?
 What if they're not comfortable with Muslims?

 Why pick on the gays?

"Open homosexuality is incompatible with military service because it 
  undermines the military ethos upon which success in war ultimately depends." 
      --Mackubin Thomas Owens, Whore St. Journal,     Link

 I'm hearing, "Soldiers MUST be homophobes to fight effectively."

 Is that really what this asshole said?

"I think Rahm Emanuel is offensive. But at least he's real.  And he has now apologized. 
 And at least he used the term metaphorically. Palin, in contrast, called her own campaign prop 
"her retarded baby" in private, according to an eye-witness account from Levi Johnston. 
"I was just in shock the first time I heard it," Levi Johnston told CBS. Unlike Sarah Palin, 
  Johnston has not been caught in multiple indisputable lies. I believe him over her. 
  In fact, in any factual dispute, I believe anyone over her."
