Michael Steele On Cliff Negotiations: 'A Lot Of It Is, Let's See How Big Yours Is Versus Mine'
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 12/03/2012 5:58:25 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest

On today's Morning Joe, asked by substitute host Willie Geist how much of the tough talk by Republicans and Dems over the fiscal cliff was posturing, former RNC Chairman Michael Steele said that 80% was posturing, then added "a lot of it is, let's see how big yours is versus mine."

Steele was careful to suggest he was simply talking about the size of the two parties' respective . . . plans. But between the smirks, raised eyebrows—and an immediate intervention from Geist—it seemed obvious that Steele was making a macho allusion to something else.

His comment barely qualifies as a double entendre (though that was his intent)...but it is still tacky.

(Why $16 Trillion Only Hints at the True U.S. Debt)

[snip] Why haven't Americans heard about the titanic $86.8 trillion liability from these programs?

Why haven't Americans heard about the titanic $86.8 trillion liability from these programs?

1) They have.
2) They don't care.
3) They watching TMZ.
4) They want their monthly check.
5) They're covering their ears.
6) The media ignores it.

Or some combination of the above.

Steele is wrong. Obama wants to create a Constitutional Crisis and set a precedent for the subjugation of Congress on appropriations and the debt ceiling.

The Republiucans should walk away and let Obama own everything that happens. That is a necessity if we are to keep the Republic.However Boehner is weak, and so are his colleagues.Boehner is like a dog , still wagging his tail at the Master who beats him, when in fact Boehner should attack Obama and tear his arm off.

Do not appropriate Obama one cent.

Photobucket

*********************

Walkin in a Winter Wonderland:

*************

Leftists sing, are you listening,

In Bohner’s brain, Reid is pi$$ing

A beautiful sight,

We’re happy tonight.

Walking in Obama’s wonderland.


**********

Gone away is the budget,

All we can do, is try to nudge it

Obama sings a love song,

As we go along,

Walking in Obama’s wonderland.


****************

In the meadow we can build Rice’s snowman,

Then pretend that she is Secretary State


*******************

She’ll say: Are you married?

We’ll say: No man,

But you can do the job

If thats your fate.


*****************

Later on, we’ll conspire,

As we dream by Reichstag fire

To face unafraid,

The treason we’ve made,

Walking in Obama’s wonderland.


********************

In the meadow we can build a snowman,

And pretend that he’s Obama’s clown

We’ll have lots of fun with mister snowman,

Until the Constitution knocks Obama down.


*******************

When in debt, ain’t it thrilling,

Though your wallet gets a chilling

We’ll frolic and play,in the fascist way,

Walking in Obama’s wonderland.

This guy is certifiable. Alan Keyes has more credibility.

Well, maybe not. But I actually had to think about it for a minute.

Disclaimer: I voted for Keyes three times before the aliens stole his brain. As foe Steele, I don't think the aliens would be interested in his brain.

Between Boehner laughing ineffectually at Geithner and Steele talking about how big his youknowhat is ...

I'm starting to think that the Adults actually won the election in November.

The GOP is a dead party of weak-willed children.

Wow, you need to pay more attention. It was McConnell who laughed at Geithner - which by the way - is EXACTLY the opposite of what Steele did by making this just another political cock measuing contest.

With due respect, you could not be more wrong.
