Ya want a left one or a right one upside your butt.
Where is the compromise in mutual assured financial suicide?
Look who popped back up out of his Chicago gopher hole
the DNC’s best and brightest
Shut the #$@! up, you astroturfer!
Let’s see. First they told us it would never happen if we raised the debt ceiling. The tea party said BS we are going to be lowered if we do raise the debt ceiling.
Then they said there was a $2 trillion error so S&P was wrong to downgrade.
Now they are saying it’s the tea party’s fault. Well maybe. I guess if they had stuck together and fillibustered the senate to prevent us from raising the debt ceiling we wouldn’t be in this mess. But blaming them for not being able to stop the democrats is just silly.
Get off your lame butts, and tell democrats they are full of crap and they know it.
Say it! Stop being such weenies.
Wasn’t what’s his name, the spokes nerd, saying Obama was involved in this deal from beginning to end? Isn’t this admitting that he gave in to the tea Party?
I love how the dems act like the Tea Party is more of a threat than Al Qaeda. These are Americans who are using their voices. When leftists do it it’s ‘speaking truth to power,’ when conservatives do it it’s thuggery and terrorism.
I have written this here probably a dozen times, but it really fits: I never thought I could loathe this administration and the Democrat party more, but they’ve managed to top themselves again.
It is Bushs fault, the credit rating company used phony numbers, it is because he is black, the republicans are at fault. Turbo Tax Tim did it! The Pesky TEA Party did it!
Axelrod also blames the tea party for his itsy bitsy teenie weenie underdeveloped penis
Thought he had returned to Chicago.
Looks like Obama's calling in all troops.
We need to stop acknowledging their name calling and inform them matter of factly, Our numbers are increasing and we will win. Period.
Chicago = broke.
Illinois = broke.
The Executive branch of the US government is now run by Chicago Politicians.
And it’s OUR fault we’re being downgraded?
The Big Lie is a propaganda technique. The expression was coined by Adolf Hitler, when he dictated his 1925 book Mein Kampf, for a lie so colossal that no one would believe that someone could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Hitler believed the technique was used by Jews to unfairly blame Germanys loss in World War I on German Army officer Erich Ludendorff.
His primary rules were: never allow the public to cool off; never admit a fault or wrong; never concede that there may be some good in your enemy; never leave room for alternatives; never accept blame; concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything that goes wrong; people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it.
Obama has to blame someone, he can’t blame Bush any more.
CBS and the NYT has a poll out that says that public support for the TEA Party has been cut in half since the debt deal.
Blame the TEA Party is the new talking point.
But of course, do you think he’s going to tell the truth and say that it’s because of Zero’s non-existent leadership skills?
You know you are lying and that you are wrong.
When Clinton left office, the debt to GDP ratio was 57%. When Bush left office (eight years later), the ratio was 69%. After 2.5 years of the Obama-Axelrod/Mugabe Rule the ratio is 97%.
The Senate has not had a budget for more than 800+ days. Obama, after being warned by the rating agencies proposed such an irresponsible budget that it was voted down by the Reid Senate by 97-0.
Obamas best buddies, Pelosie and Reid have had control of the House and Senate from January 1 2007. He and his fellow Democrats have been in control of the purse for 4+ years now.
The Repubs have had the House for just 7 months now. They have passed the Ryan bill which Obama attacked ferociously. The House passed the CC&B bill that was tabled by the Senate and was declared DOA by Obama. How is this fiscal mess the Republicans fault?
OBAMA/Axelrod = EPIC FAIL
They did compromise you f’n liar! They wanted Cut, Cap, and Balance! Let me guess, nobody challenged this lying snake’s BS!
It is Bushs fault, the credit rating company used phony numbers, it is because he is black, the republicans are at fault. Turbo Tax Tim did it! The Tea Party did it in the Library with the wrench!
