University of California, Berkeley Professor Christina Romer, the Obama administrations first chair of the White House Council of Economic Advisers, appeared on HBOs Real Time with Bill Maher Friday night. Romer who resigned in 2010 after inaccurately predicting that the $800 billion stimulus would lower the unemployment rate said that the S&P credit downgrade was a sign that we are pretty darn f****. The long run budget situation is abysmal, Romer said. And it has been abysmal going back at least a decade. So it was never an immediate emergency. And it is something that we

Why do liberals use profanity in public settings so much???
Yes I know Dick Cheney said a bad word, and that snot nose 12 year old girl at the Democrat convention called him out, amid cheers from the good Democrats there. However, Cheney said that directly to someone privately, not broadcast publicly like this.
Except for this Dick Cheney incident, have there been other incidents of prominent conservative politicians/commentators using F bombs or other profanity in public? Joe Biden said that Obamacare was a big blanking deal in public. It just seems so much more common for liberals to go into the gutter when they express themselves.
Hmmm. Well I'll have to rethink my pessimistic position regarding the US economy.
After all, if a clueless, economic ignorant, Keynesian loser professor, thinks we are fu#ked, maybe things aren't so bad after all.
Hmmm - Prozac Lady (my personal nickname for her since day one) now getting risque and feisty since she broke the bonds of BHO’s dictatorship?
“It just seems so much more common for liberals to go into the gutter when they express themselves.”
Of course it is - they’re so much more “liberated” than us up-tight, repressed conservatives, dontcha’ know :-)
who’s the guy on the left who looks like he crapped his pants?
Christine was the smartest man in the room.....
He deserves to crap his pants......over and over.
Good thing some folks can sleep thru all of this.
Never hang with a used rope. Always use a new rope because you cannot be hanged twice - if the rope breaks, you go free.
That is a great one! God Bless.
And in every other way.
Mary Matalin explained the phenomenom 15 years ago: Everybody expects Democrats to be slimy, dishonest, immoral, etc., and so when they demonstrate what they are, absolutely nobody is surprised or outraged. Why would they be? Republicans, on the other hand, are expected to be decent, honest, civilized, and moral and have a sense of shame. Therefore, when a Republican falters people are shocked. It makes headlines. Republicans resign their offices without having to be pressured into doing so.
It's just the way it is, and the way it has been for a long, long time.
(shrug) What can you do?
Hey Christina, throw your fat ass in a jail cell where you and your old boss belong for destroying this country.
I give Larry credit for ticking off the feminists. But only for that.
You can use it to understand that Americans are very forgiving people, in general, but they detest hypocrisy.
Then, you use that understanding to guide points of argument. For example, you don't just say, "Algore is bad"...you say, "Algore tells others to cut energy usage while he increases his own" (and cite supporting details).
Remember when Eliot Spitzer's involvement as a client of a prostitution ring came to light. Look at the difference of the reaction on FR from that in America or New York in general. Much of America/NY didn't care about his involvement with prostitution very much, per se, but the issue had great traction because of how he'd prosecuted several prostitution rings previously. He'd made many enemies, and they pounced on the hypocrisy.
IMO, this is one of the biggest disconnects between many conservatives and the general public/electorate--and, therefore, the place where we can make the biggest gains in getting our points across.
When used the liberal way, Profanity is the attempt of a weak mind to express itself
” pretty darn f****.
She wouldn’t say DAMNED because THAT would be profane, but filling in the blanks in F%^&#@ was just fine because to a liberal saying words like this in public shows how serious things are in their little minds.
“And it has been abysmal going back at least a decade”. Ah, it’s Bush’s fault.
With her self satisfied well fed smirk in place.
Ha! Now what makes you think she thought she was using profanity? I doubt if she has ever had any experience with the word or its meaning.
Typical vile leftist. Not a brain for intelligent conversation having to resort to swearing to speak
Excuse my French, but we all know the country’s been effed since November 2008. And we know nothing will get better until the socialists are out, AND a bunch of RINOs too, in Jan.2013.
Hang on, it’s still going to be a bumpy nightmare for 17 more months.
Who is the one on the left doing a one cheek sneak?
