An ironic bookend to that Richard Cohen column I linked earlier accusing the GOP of being a cult that cant face unpleasant realities. Look out here for actual chanting about how allegedly un-broke we are. (Even The One is more reality-based than that.) Youve seen this schtick before remember Michael Moores disgusting speech in Wisconsin about the 400 little Mubaraks who have stolen our money? but watch it anyway to see how slippery Jones is with the actual numbers. Turns out theres a lot of wealth out there that could be used to reduce the deficit; not enough wealth to keep up with a metastasizing government, especially with entitlement spending set to explode, but still, its a lot. No need to sweat the details.
James Poulos says it better than me:
In the wake of David Brooks instantly infamous column calling Republicans an abnormal party on account of its tax-cut fatalism, its just about time for someone to declare the Democratic party deeply abnormal as a result of its (lets be frank) moronic fatalism on entitlements. I know for a fact that many liberals are not, in point of fact, morons. That makes it all the more disturbing that their party insists, as a matter of political principle and whatever the consequences, that the federal government expand without limit the reach and comprehensiveness of its entitlement regime.

The left defines broke as actually being totally our of money, not going into debt because the amount being spent is greater than the revenues generated.
When the US cannot meet any of it’s obligations and cannot raise tax revenue, then it will be broke.
Ahhh, America’s favorite Communist, Van Jones.
But hey, California’s governor wannabe, Whitman, says that
he is a “wonderful man”.
And you are not a Shiite Load of Hauxpium...
Van Jones meant to say Van Jones is not broke because of his scams.
Thank God for Van, I was worried about it for a minute or so. Darn glad a stinking, communist, radical black leader finally told the truth. SARCASM ON.
What will we tell all those business owners who have gone south, and those guys who lost their homes, and those guys who lost their jobs, and those guys who can’t find a job?
Oh, well, what do it matter. Van Jones says “America is not broke” and that’s all that matters:)
"You want fries with that?"
This is van trying to be anti Tea Party and start a new movement.
Here is the problem good ole van is going to run into.
