"WE'VE GOT REPS"

Thanks to Butch from Waukegan who put a link to this hilarious YouTube video on my last post. It's so good I have to share it more directly here.

I saw the video earlier today on Raw Story. Funny, but true.

Republicans have a couple of fools, sure (not to agree with the list). Democrats have a tax dodger and financial falsifier of his disclosure form in a crucial House Ways and means chairmanhsip in charge of tax legislation. Republicans get rid of their bad actors. Democrats protect theirs.

umm - Republicans do? Seems like there have been some Republicans who the party covered for as long as they could.

That was just fantastic.

Tom,
Name them.

you're a smart guy - i don't think i have too.

Tom,
Your tactic is familiar and common from the left. They make an accusation like racisim, core dishonesty of a party, lies told by Fox News and then are unable to back it up with even one example. No wonder only 20% of Americans identify themselves as liberal.

yeah - but in the last election, the majority were democrat - and i believe its because they believe in democracy - not the divisive, fear-mongering version of government that the rightwigs allowed under the previous administration - and look at the reps that were represented on butch's video - they're an embarrassment to government - and they're only a sampling of what the republicans have to offer ...
thanks to butch and lall for the humor - sad as it is ...

Maybe this is the reason Jlm is not getting an answer to his question.

Paul,
The majority voted for Obama, who promised moderate non partisanship, hope and change. He did not promise socialism, curtailment of free speech, communist czars, govt. takeover of finance, autos and health care 10% unemployment which is really 17% unemployment when the people who have quit looking are counted. He did not promise a war on business and jobs. He did not promise international ineptitude. He won the Democrats, Independents and some Republican because he ran a fraudulent election in which he hid who he really was.

yeah, unfortunately his assessment of eight failed years were a bit optimistic - i guess we can only be grateful for his tenacity and his administrations hard work as the smoke screens lift ...
got to admit, your appraisals are humorously exaggerated ...
i guess another sick fantasy you can play out is; that if mccain/palin would be there - we'd be on the brink of ww3 with 'bomb,bomb, bomb, iran' and probably korea - and we'd be increasing our military as part of job expansion and exporting our war machine as a very gross national product - not to mention the fear factors that would diminish all the domestic issues under the guise of patriotic sacrifice [or fear of retribution for not adhering to party lines] ...
man, you guys have it all wrong - at least you have your media to console and affirm such stupidity ...
even rush admitted in recent interviews that he says things that are outrageous and inflamed to garner ratings and attention - its entertainment not philosophy ...

JIm said...

Paul,
If McCain were in there, I would like to think we would not had a nationalization of the autos. I would also like to think we would not end up with nationalized health care, however I do not think Sarah could have kept him in check. I suspect Iran, Russia and North Korea would treat us very carefully. Bomb, Bomb Iran was only partially in jest.

Thoughts on “American Exceptionalism, NOT!! From Pres Obama – Time Magazine

Inspirational words written by the American Dear Leader, from his Columbia thesis, follow. If these don’t imbue you with optimism you must be on of those dirty rotten free enterprise nuts.

“… the Constitution allows for many things, but what it does not allow is the most revealing. The so-called Founders did not allow for economic freedom. While political freedom is supposedly a cornerstone of the document, the distribution of wealth is not even mentioned. While many believed that the new Constitution gave them liberty, it instead fitted them with the shackles of hypocrisy.” Barack Obama or Barry Sotero or what ever his name was that year.

Re the comment directly above.

Fake Obama Thesis Story Goes Viral, Because Of Stupidity.

These tea baggers are so gullible. Am I being too charitable? Last month they believed there were 2 million people at their 9.12 protest.

How can anyone take these people seriously?

(It would have been absolutely OK with me if Obama had written what was falsely attributed to him.)

Mea Culpa,
When you are wrong. you are wrong. A few weeks ago I accused Butch of being an a**hole for shoddy documentation after calling Rush a racist based on an incomplete quote. Well, this time I am the one who acted like an anal opening. I do note that Butch is perfectly fine with the socialist and ant-American philosophy of the fictional thesis. I suspect Butch would has many compatible sojourners on this blog.
