Where’s the barf alert?
The Washington, DC Party and their propagandists in the state media, and their hacks in the new media, even on FreeRepublic, are all spinning, ie lying, at warp speed today. I hope they don’t throw the earth off its axis!
hahahaha don’t you get it? The economy was recovering before the Tea Party gutted the budget and threw us into a double-dip recession. Wait for it... ;-)
“but the Tea Party is now running Washington.”
Ri-iii-ght. The TEA Party would agree to fantasy spending cuts amounting to a week’s Federal spending “sometime over the next ten years”.
So now Obama and his people can force a Cloward-Piven total col;lapse and blame someone else (other than Bush).
It is IMPOSSIBLE for the left to run on a positive uplifting message. They need to run against someone.
The fact that liberal Beinart wrote this article is also proof.
There was a similar WaPo piece that also declared the TP the winner.
If the MSM says the Tea Party won, than it probably didn’t.
yep. Just like after the 2011 CR. The media wants to make the people think we won so we become responsible for future downgrades and downturns. Boehner and all need to go on the offensive today and speak to the American people that they moved the ball 2 yard, but have 98 to go. That the economy is weighed down by a massive debt and our credit rating remains in danger because we could only get minimal cooperation from the Democrats who control 2/3 of the process.
No celebrating. This is a minor victory in a skirmish that is the beginning of a long process to rein in an out of control government.
The author lies and lies and lies.
Obama can only dream about 7.7% GDP!
You know this stuff has gone way over the edge. The media had influence over the power of the TEA party how ? Please detail.
Is this guy totally stupid? You don't get economic growth under conditions of uncertainty. Make permanent tax and spending cuts, including tax cuts for businesses, and watch what happens. It amazes me that someone with a journalism major is all of a sudden an economics expert.
the dems and their “bipartisan” fool mccain
were both bad-mouthing the tea party.
I noted articles op-eds in both Washington Post and NY Times, written by the
Center for American Progress (a noted leftie think-tank) complaining about the US debt, generally sounding like Conservatives - and calling for a 3RD PARTY IN 2012.
Splitting the Republican/Conservative vote by with a 3rd party candidate is Obama’s ONLY CHANCE - and the Progressives know it. Expect the MSM to chime in any time on this theme also
No war? When the hell did that happen?!
Oh, he must mean "no war with a Republican in charge."
Bush warred for oil. Obama wars only for peace. Love bombs and bullets of groovy.
There hasn't been a legitimate 'left wing' movement in over thirty years. It's an illusion kept going by dem war room tactics - fake letters, paid protestors, victim groups on the take... paid trolls to work the internet... That's why liberals can't pull off large demonstrations - not enough money for rent-a-mobs on that scale.
This is BS. Freshmen Reps, just say Hell No. Don’t break down due to threats. Let the people know what’s going on with the huge military cuts (after Obama threatened them and put boots on the ground in Libya, Somalia, Yemen), other cuts starting in 2013 (never happen), but in ten years everything grows huge.
Fox had Joe Walsh on; He’s telling the real deal, Hemmer proceeds to quote the WSJ about how glorious it is (never mind Walsh read the bill and is on the floor), he tells him exactly why it sucks vs CCBalance, the financial guy agrees, then as Hemmer tells of the NYTs slamming Obama for being a tool of the right and getting nothing in this plan (a damned lie), he brings for a response on how democrats may vote and act... wait for it... Lynn fricking Sweet from Chicago. Hello? Did I miss something, is she in Congress?
What shills at Fox. Mind you I caught that while turning.
Gohmert said the ten trillion cuts don’t start till 2013. There is no enforcement mechanism. If the OMB is a buddy of the prez, won’t happen. Same crap that always happens, dummies falling for it again. Louie said if you want to get around the cuts, you call it emergency to get around caps, he mentioned the census, even though we knew it was coming (duh)>
People need to call and ask specifics on what it does and when, are the cuts guaranteed (NO), what stops him from spending and why non-essential personnel and all the crap committees, orgs, groups started by Obama since he got in weren’t chopped (don’t even ask about Obamacare and the bill, should’ve been a first cut).
They think we’re all sheep, this guy gave more to unions, ACORN, GE, etc. than he’s chopping the military, and that’s huge. In any other country, it would be inklings of a coup. No accountability anywhere, it’s time to impeach.
BTW, the bill opens the door to higher taxes.
Ask yourself, what DOES the bill do?
How better to demonize the Tea Party, than to credit them with a victory?
That the ‘victory’ is debateable, delinquent, incomplete and bears no direct resemblance to actual Tea Party demands is beside the point, if you are an MSM ‘journalist’.
For them, it is enough to make this kind of a spurious association and the idiot Liberal viewers will take it for gospel.
I never bought into the whole Tea Party thing....
