Despicable, absolutely despicable. And any Republican who went along with this should be ashamed of themselves. There are dozens and dozens of things we could cut, but we target disabled vets? Every single member who voted for this should be thrown from office.
A note about the clip from Patty Murray promising to fix the problem, after the bill is passed. Why after? Why not fix it now, before passing it? This is just more double talk from our Congress. Don’t worry about this bill, we will fix it later, right, sure you will Congresswoman.
Another note about our politicians in Congress. Only the Tea Party members seem sincere about fixing our fiscal house. The career politicians seem far more concerned with retaining power than serving their country. We can change this culture of Congressional entitlement, or begin to at least, next November. We need to retake the Senate, and keep the House, but we also need to support more Conservative candidates like Milton Wolf in Kansas over incumbent Republicans who have forgotten what their job is.
God bless them! Stephen Green as some thoughts on this you should read at the link
Martin Bashir said some very nasty things about Sarah Palin last week, and either his bosses, or Bashir himself decided he went too far. Donald Douglas has Bashir’s apology I will leave it to you to decide how heartfelt it is. To me it sounded less scripted than most apologies we hear today, so maybe Bashir actually means it
And by suck, I mean sucks in a sucktacular fashion! Matt has more
Imagine that a five year old is surviving Leukemia, and has had this fatal disease since they were a toddler. Now, also imagine that Make-A-Wish arranged to make the little guy Batman for the day, and get him some recognition. Sounds like a wonderful story, doesn’t it? Well, not to some liberals, who thought it was terribly unfair! Stacy McCain has some more…
Here is the Tweet from a Racially Obsessed Moonbat and Matt’s response, which is dead on target!
I’ve said before that liberals have a rather narrowly defined world view. Thanks to critical theory, AKA, Political Correctness, AKA, Cultural Marxism, liberals subsist on a victim narrative. In their little world, someone is always exploiting or abusing someone else, and even good news is bad news, because someone’s good news created bad news for someone else. So, this little kid got to be Batman, but to make that happen, some little dark skinned kid must have been deprived of something. I know, it’s asinine, but liberals always look stupid when they try and shove any possible story into their victim narrative. But that won’t keep them from trying.
This also qualifies my belief that Liberalism is an ideology for the pessimistic folks in society. Think about it, is there any group that loves them some pity parties more than Liberals?
GREAT Tweet from RS McCain today
Democrat 2014 campaign slogan: “Now That We Totally Fucked Up Your Health Insurance, Give Us a Chance to Fuck Up Everything Else, Too.
Go read the post that goes along with that Tweet, it is pure gold
If you want to see a microcosm of the problems looming for Democrats in their 2014 mid-term campaign to recapture the House, look no further than New York’s 23rd Congressional District:
Martha Robertson is the Democratic candidate challenging Republican incumbent Tom Reed in NY-23, my home district.
We have highlighted Robertson many times before regarding her unsubstantiated fundraising claim that “GOP ops” tried to take down her website. Robertson’s campaign never has provided proof of that claim, leading to a fair amount of negative local television coverage and even national press attention.
The fundraising scandal, which I doubt is over, likely will be overshadowed by a much bigger problem: Robertson is a long-time and vocal supporter of mandates with the ultimate goal of single-payer.
In light of the Obamacare debacle, and the inability of the federal government even to set up a website portal, a complete federal government takeover of the health care system is a hard sell.
Basically, the Democrats own the train wreck that is Obamacare. The GOP has a GREAT opportunity here. Can they take advantage? They damn well better. Here is a bit of helpful advice from me to the GOP establishment. If a long-time Republican gets a primary challenger from the Tea Party, do not whine. If the incumbent is a Conservative they ought to welcome debate, and their challenger as well. And, if the incumbent loses the primary, then the establishment ought to welcome and support the Republican voters choice! Respect your base, without them, the GOP is done. In other words care more about America, than about your power.
To the Tea Party. Feel free to primary a less than stellar Conservative, I think it is great for our party. Challenge them, and debate them, but if you lose to them, support them anyway. Remember, the less Democrats in Congress the better. Basically, we need to have open challenges among ourselves, and then we need to support the winner. Again, recall that not one Republican voted for Obamacare in 2010, NOT ONE! A less than stellar Republican is better than a Democrat!
To any anti-gun weenies who are afraid of guns, and thus deeply aggrieved and offended by real men, AKA Conservative men this is for you. I hope you are so offended you cry yourself to sleep tonight
How many governors would take this picture? Certainly not New Jersey’s Stay Puff Marshmallow Man Yeah, exactly! H/T The Blaze
The media, and of course Democrats will point to the defeat of Ken Cuccinelli in the Virginia governors election and say that this is a huge, massive, epic, and crippling defeat for the Tea Party, and Conservatism. And when they say that, they will be either lying or engaging in a bit of propaganda. If any entity failed in that race, it was the GOP leadership, which allowed Democrats to outspend them 10-1, and a finger of blame might also point at Chris Christie. Christie, with his reelection assured was asked, repeatedly, to come campaign for Kuccinelli. He declined, how is that for team work? Thanks Governor, really
By the way, it seems that Kuccinelli won among the middle class voters in Virginia, while McAuliffe won among the poor, and wealthy. I guess the duel Democratic strategies of make the rich feel guilty, and promise the poor you will give them everything worked. Odd, because those who will be hardest hit by McAuliffe’s Left wing policies will be those poor that were so busy voting with their hands out that they could not understand that the promises of leftism NEVER materialize.
