Posted on 03/02/2013 10:24:34 AM PST by Kaslin
Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) this week made another in a series of absurd comments actually claiming that 170 million people would lose their jobs if the budget sequester was enacted.
NBC Tonight Show host Jay Leno actually began his show with Waters claim Friday saying that it explains "why were in this situation in the first place" (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):
Jay Leno monolog on Maxine Waters
After the opening theme and credits, Leno walked out onto the stage and said, Welcome sequestration survivors. Yes!
As you know, Congress did not reach an agreement, he continued, and Congresswoman Maxine Waters said today that 170 million jobs could be lost because of it.
For the most part, the White House has been able to fearmonger this issue with cataclysmic predictions that totally defy reason.
As this has been happening, the stock market has approached an all-time high showing absolutely no interest whatsoever in what came out of this budget battle. Traders all around the world were saying that the size of sequestration cuts would have absolutely no impact on the economy whether they went into effect or not.
But the White House was still allowed to issue dire warnings with little pushback from their obedient media.
With this in mind, its not just the ignorance of people in Congress such as Waters that has brought us to this point.
Its the medias support and dissemination of untruths that not only misinforms the public on key issues facing the nation thereby distorting their opinion on them, but also encourages left-leaning politicians to continue to present falsehoods knowing full well theyll never be called on them.
It therefore seems impossible at this stage of our nations history to imagine a well-informed electorate being governed by honest leaders that have their best interests in mind.
It would be so nice if the GOP would come out of hiding and play up these democrat stupidity and lies. Call them on their bull and don’t be such wimps.
There is an opportunity to showcase the complete ignorance and truth evasion of the democrat party and their messiah zero.
My name is Marxine Waters ... and I'm dumber than a box of door knobs!
Maxine Waters, like Nancy Pelosi, is evil. Stupidity is bad enough but evil is...
The scary part is these idiot libs from locked in blue districts get to the top of the seniority list and become committee chairs when Dems have control.
Just why are you picking on door knobs?
Agreed 170 million percent!
There goes Jay’s invite to the Image Awards.
That Maxine keeps getting re-elected says a whole lot about the mental capacity of the voters in her district. Lyndon 'coup-man' Johnson woudl be so proud of the dumbed down dependents he's created in his 'great society' ... if he could stop screaming long enough in Hell to see it.
“North Korea is so secluded, they thought Dennis Rodman was Barack Obama.....”.....LOL!
This is what happens when you vote for someone based solely on the color of their skin. And that is not a racist statement. She and Obammy are perfect examples.
Where you Maxine, when these 170 million jobs were being lost? Aren’t you an elected representative who swore to obey the Constitutition?
One would think that to be the case. But since the majority of the GOP are on the Democrat AAA, AA and A teams they don’t want to hurt their chances to make the big leagues of liars, demagogues and deceivers.
This is all very simple. We’ve never gotten into a recovery. Eventually the media will have to admit it. Now they can say republicans’ budget cutting killed it and put us back into a recession.
Like my pastor stated last week, “Political power comes at a price...your soul.”
Breathing in autonomic very little brain activity is required. All you need is a living brain stem and an intact Phrenic nerve.
It is her walking that is amazing. Walking requires balance and coordination.
I am continuously amazed that her brain can sustain the coordination required to maintain her body upright. With the statements that come out of that mouth I am amazed that her brain has the capacity to coordinate chewing gum with her eyes open let alone walk!
Marxine Waters is a dyed in the wool communist. She surrendered her soul long ago
Love it >>>> :O)
She’s dumber than a box of hammers, which is more dangerous than a box of AR15’s
What’s amazing is Maxine Waters is pro-open borders with a grade of “F” from NumbersUSA. She is damaging the very people who voted for her and who she represents.
Her constituents are being replaced by South-of-the-Border illegal invaders, but her minions vote her in time and time again.
Don’t worry. Her district will soon be so overwhelmingly full of Hispanics that she and other blacks won’t have a chance. She has sold “her people” down the river...
You are exactly right.
NOTHING is free.
170 million people have jobs, and pay the salary of this mental midget.
Low Information Congress Critter representing Low Information Voters.
“Hey state run media, why don’t you idiots ever challenge these lies?”
If the alleged opposition party won’t challenge the lies, why should the media?
Obongo Bozo is not dumb — he is sly, and he is smart.
He driven by his LIEberal/Socialist/Marxist/Fascist ideology and his hatred for America and Americans, which is basically incomprehensible to most Real Americans.
Why, after all, would anyone so blessed to be living in America, hate it?
I don’t have a good answer for that question, but suffice it to say that he and his goons are dead set on destroying America.
So far, they have been successful beyond their wildest imagination, and unless stopped, they WILL destroy America.
WAKE UP AMERICA!
Sounds like it’s part of Obama’s new organization to confuse the right.
I agree with part of that, but the Republicans could be screaming the truth from the steps of the capitol steps every day and the low information voter will say "Just because nbc, abc, cbs, pmsnbc, cnn did not report it, the Republicans are lying". The American media is enemy number one to this country.
I agree with you on the media. However, if the Republicans voice no objections there is zero pressure on the media. In addition, if they fail to challenge the lies they lose support of their base.
There is no cost to challenging the lies and certainly some benefit in keeping their base energized. Who knows, as the recent Woodward episode demonstrates, someone in the media might actually take notice.
I would not say he is “dumb” about US History. What I would say is that he has been brainwashed to accept the Marxist view of history.
He really believes the Marxist LIE that the US is evil, and has set about to make America safe for the LIEberal/Socialist/Marxist/Fascist New World Order.
Clearly Obongo Bozo is a classic example of the Peter Principle at work — he has been promoted at least six or eight times above his level of competence.
HST, there is no “there” there — he is a hollow shell, filled with LIEberal slogans and Communist Crap “feel goods.” The fact that whenever he goes “off script” and flubs his dub is indicative of just how empty his suit is.
What really burns my ass is that he will not have to pay the price for his lies and treachery — the American people and our former allies around the world will pay dearly.
Unless we can somehow impeach, convict and imprison Obongo Bozo and his henchmen, he will retire, having destroyed America, to a life of ease and luxury.
It is all a result of him pulling the biggest con job in the history of the known world!
That arrogant, condescending sonofabitch is laughing at us as I write these words!
He fooled enough of the people enough of the time, didn’t he?
Shame on us!
The problem is, the GOP basically agrees with every Democrat premise such as Govt spending helps the economy and taxes are still too low.
Just why are you picking on door knobs?
Good point..No, Excellent point!
Mad Max makes door knobs look smart..
This woman is as dumb as Obama.
