Skip to comments.Mark Levin Talks Budget Deal
Posted on 04/09/2011 2:34:10 PM PDT by FreeReign
Let’s pretend that O did not introduce billions more in spending that will not occur.
Evidently curtailing O’s spending is a bad thing, eh?
Are they cutting thin air??
As usual, Levin is the voice of honesty and common sense. Hacks like Reid and Boehner don’t even understand the language he speaks.
Well, I don’t agree. I heard him on Fox and he was mean and acerbic.
We need to embrace this as a victory, and go on to more victories.
Whining and blaming Boehner are easy if you are on the radio.
You must not have any children. MY kid’s grand kids are going to be paying this mess.
Our side is still stuck in the notion that if you don't get every single thing you want, it's a loss. Barbra Streisand.
Why the personal comment because we happen to disagree on this issue?
You’re right, even tho it’s not popular to say so here.
Ezra Klein wrote a pretty good piece for the WaPo saying that Dems have lost a lot more than they realize because this has solidified Boehner as a powerful Speaker who can rally his troops even when they don’t agree and deliver the goods. (Remember that as much as we disliked her, Pelosi was very good at her job). Moreover the cuts set a precedent that will lead to more policy defeats in the coming months, and policy defeats will diminish Obama and the Democrat power just as we’ve already seen happen as Obama has had to abandon most of his campaign promises (Gitmo, Bush tax policy, Bush anti terror policies, etc.
It will never register with many who post on FR but this is what registers with the center-right and independents. The more they see Obama and the Dems as losers, the better the chances of defeating them in coming elections and rolling-back their destructive policies.
You won’t hear Rush talking like Levin, because he knows this has always been about defeating Obama’s policies.
The Democrats didn't pass Obama's 2011 budget. They failed to do it while they were in the majority, all of last year.
You are using a budget that failed to pass as a baseline to define spending cuts.
Yes, strategy, this was a golden opportunity to do more, they were ill prepared to take full advantage of it. Next time, add more cuts if Democrats try to stop the bill.
Well I don't agree that it was a victory.
“Why the personal comment because we happen to disagree on this issue?”
It wasn’t a personal comment, it was a statement of fact. His grandkids and everyone else’s grandkid WILL pay (and pay) for the ongoing debt binge we’re still involved in.
The dollar is already well on its way to becoming worthless toilet paper as we, with reckless abandon, print ever more money to cover our deficits and buy our own debt.
The $30+ billion “victory” is laughable against the $1+ trillion we’re wracking up every year. If this is the best we can do, we are all in serious trouble to say nothing of future generations, who will rightfully curse us all.
levin is expressing his opinion - just as you are - except that he did not call your opinion "whining" like you did
levin did not take boehner's job - i assure you that if he did, this bill you like would not have been accepted
the above is not a personal attack - what follows is
for someone that twists language of others as a 'personal attack', you should consider not calling the opinion of others 'whining'
Levin is a public figure. I can characterize him any way I choose.
I am a private poster on Free Republic. My family situation is none of your business.
Anyone who thinks this a victory in any way must either be a Statist, a government worker, or incredibly naive.
Mark Levin was right on the money. $38B out of nearly $4 Trillion is a victory? It's nothing. Our Founding fathers are crying because our so called leaders are weak and unprincipled beyond words.
The Rep leadership deserves nothing but our contempt. Levin is brilliant, not mean or acerbic.
i don’t care about your family situation - no one asked you about it - but something must be wrong because you seem awfully sensitive about it
seeing how you chose to become a public figure here and all
I won’t pick on you...but you are wrong. The most important thing Levin said was if they fold from 100B to 61B to 38.5B (and 10 Billion of that is rumored to be the 10B in cuts from earlier CR’s then its no victory. The next two fights will be harder. His next point was more important, when we have no answer to being accused of starving old people and murdering women then we really have no real plan. Charges like this need to be answered.
I say all this with respect and of course your opinion is welcome.
