‘Unconscionable’ Worm Harry Reid Demonizes Republicans For 60 Vote Requirement: READ REID’S OWN PREVIOUS WORDS

July 31, 2011

Harry Reid is a worm.  He can’t be negotiated with or compromised with because he is a pathologically dishonest hypocrite who can’t be trusted.

Here is Harry Reid demonizing Mitch McConnell for not allowing his smoke-and-mirrors bill to have a straight up or down vote.  Never mind that Reid had just got through tabling not one but TWO Republicans bills without allowing a vote at all.  And just how in the hell does that foster anything but a bitter and poisonous climate?

“It’s fair to say that the engagement there is not in any meaningful way,” Reid said. “Republican leaders still refuse to negotiate in good faith.” […]

He suggested that delaying tactics being exercised by his Republican colleagues are preventing a measure from advancing in the upper congressional chamber to raise the debt ceiling. The Democratic leader spelled out the word f-i-l-i-b-u-s-t-e-r to make his case.

“You can put lipstick on it, a nice suit, even a skirt on it sometimes, it’s still a filibuster,” Reid said in comments directed at McConnell. The Nevada Democrat suggested that it’d be “unconscionable” for Republicans to use the maneuver to prevent a bill from passing to avert default.

Filibusters (requiring 60 votes)_ are “unconscionable,” are they?  Let’s see how Harry Reid applies that to, oh, Harry Reid.

What is funny” is that I actually had a hard time finding these quotes even though I actually had the VIDEO of one of them.  The mainstream media’s dishonesty, corruption and propaganda are reaching sickening new depths.

Sen. Reid: ‘It’s Always Been The Case You Need 60 Votes’
Jul 29 2011

Sen. Reid Says: ‘The Need To Muster 60 Votes… Is A Tool That Serves The Long-Term Interest Of The Senate And The American People And Our Country.’

SEN. HARRY REID (D-NV): “In the Senate, it’s always been the case you need 60 votes.” (PBS’ “Charlie Rose Show,” 3/5/07)

SEN. HARRY REID (D-NV): “As majority leader, I intend to run the Senate with respect for the rules and for the minority rights the rules protect. The Senate was not established to be efficient. Sometimes the rules get in the way of efficiency. The Senate was established to make sure that minorities are protected. Majorities can always protect themselves, but minorities cannot. That is what the Senate is all about. For more than 200 years, the rules of the Senate have protected the American people, and rightfully so. The need to muster 60 votes in order to terminate Senate debate naturally frustrates the majority and oftentimes the minority. I am sure it will frustrate me when I assume the office of majority leader in a few weeks. But I recognize this requirement is a tool that serves the long-term interest of the Senate and the American people and our country. It is often said that the laws are ‘the system of wise restraints that set men free.’ The same might be said of the Senate rules. I will do my part as majority leader to foster respect for the rules and traditions of our great institution. I say on this floor that I love so much that I believe in the Golden Rule. I am going to treat my Republican colleagues the way that I expect to be treated. There is no ‘I’ve got you,’ no get even. I am going to do everything I can to preserve the traditions and rules of this institution that I love.” (Sen. Reid, Congressional Record, S.11591, 12/8/06)

SEN. HARRY REID (D-NV): “60 votes are required for just about everything.” “I have talked with Senator McConnell about this. You know, we may have to come up with a number of resolutions that require 60 votes. Because, as you know, in the Senate, a lot of times 60 votes are required for just about everything. So that’s certainly one of the things we’re taking into consideration.” (Sen. Harry Reid, Press Conference, CQ Transcriptions, 1/30/07)

I don’t have to quote some Republican to show that Harry Reid is an “unconscionable” dishonest little hypocritical worm.  All I have to do is quote Harry Reid at a slightly earlier time.

Or how about simply point out what Harry Reid is actually doing RIGHT NOW while he himself filibusters even as he demagogues filibustering?

Democrats enforce filibuster against their own debt bill
by Stephen Dinan
Published on July 30, 2011

Senate Republicans want a 60-vote threshold for a debt-limit bill to pass the chamber, but it’s actually Democrats who are enforcing the filibuster on their own legislation, insisting on delaying a vote until 1 a.m. Sunday morning.

Republicans offered to let the vote happen Friday night, just minutes after the chamber voted to halt a House Republican bill. All sides expect Democrats’ bill will fail too, and the GOP said senators might as well kill both at the same time so that negotiations could move on to a compromise.

“We would be happy to have that vote tonight,” Sen. Mitch McConnell, Republicans’ leader, offered.

But Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid objected, even though the vote would occur on his own bill. He instead said the chamber would have to run out the full procedural clock, which means a vote in the early hours Sunday morning.

He said he would be willing to move up the vote if Republicans didn’t insist on a 60-vote threshold, which has become traditional for big, controversial items to pass the Senate. But the GOP held firm on that demand, so Mr. Reid said he would insist on the full process, which he said would show the country that Republicans were being obstructionist.

“There is now another filibuster. That’s what this is. It’s a filibuster to stop us from moving forward,” he said.

Mr. Reid complained that if the House had been held to the same super majority rules the Senate often operates under, Republicans’ proposal never would have passed over there earlier in the day….

I will always wonder how Democrats’ skulls don’t literally explode from trying to contain all the massive hypocritical contradictions that so quintessentially define them.

Then there’s something that I actually didn’t realize: the so-called “Boehner plan” was actually a compromise between Republican leaders, Harry Reid and Barack Obama.  Until Democrats cut and ran and pulled out the rug from their own damned compromise:

CR Editorial Note: Sen. Reid, aka “Quirog of Greazidom” had already worked out the House plan in a compromise with Boehner that blew up the House and the Tea Party as many must have heard today. In other words, this was the negotiated plan that Reid worked out and then promptly voted to table as dead on arrival when it finally arrived in the Senate.
 
 Why did Reid table his own compromised plan?

Enter Barack Hussein Obama, who read Reid the riot act after his smary talk on compromise and needing to “get something done.”
 
You see, a compromise would totally go against Obama’s Cloward-Piven plan to bring everything crashing down around America.
 
That story line is becoming more and more convincing as more facts are unearthed.

Boehner didn’t get ONE single Democrat vote (fact: he got FIVE Democrat votes for the MUCH more conservative cut, cap and balance bill that Senate Democrats trivialized, demonized and tabled) for this compromise plan due to the hard-core partisianship of the Democrats.  Boehner stuck his neck out a mile to compromise with Democrats and his reward was a Democrat chopping block.  Because Boehner couldn’t get any Democrat support for his compromise bill, he had no choice but to “conservative-it-up” to get enough Republicans to pass it.

This entire debt ceiling fiasco is quintessential Democrat hypocrisy.

In demonizing George Bush and then voting “NO” on a debt ceiling increase, Barack Obama lectured:

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure,” he said. “It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt limit.”

And since we were talking about the personal dishonesty and hypocrisy of Harry Reid, what did Harry Reid say when Bush was president and he was the same vile piece of rotten filth Senator he is now?

REID: “If my Republican friends believe that increasing our debt by almost $800 billion today and more than $3 trillion over the last five years is the right thing to do, they should be upfront about it. They should explain why they think more debt is good for the economy.

How can the Republican majority in this Congress explain to their constituents that trillions of dollars in new debt is good for our economy? How can they explain that they think it’s fair to force our children, our grandchildren, our great grandchildren to finance this debt through higher taxes. That’s what it will have to be. Why is it right to increase our nation’s dependence on foreign creditors?

They should explain this. Maybe they can convince the public they’re right. I doubt it. Because most Americans know that increasing debt is the last thing we should be doing. After all, I repeat, the Baby Boomers are about to retire. Under the circumstances, any credible economist would tell you we should be reducing debt, not increasing it. Democrats won’t be making argument to supper this legalization, which will weaken our country.”

WHY DON’T YOU ANSWER YOUR OWN DEMAGOGIC QUESTIONS NOW, HARRY REID?!?!?!

Republicans are standing firm for a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution which would require both Republican and Democrat administration and Congress ALIKE to spend within their means.  And Democrats – who constantly deceitfully TALK about cutting spending and having balanced budgets – are willing to fight to the death to avoid allowing EITHER.

Democrats are actually opposing a plan that would entail just a one percent spending cut a year for six yearsJUST ONE PERCENT!!!  So you can rest assurred that everything they say about cuts is nothing more than a lie, and all their bills that claim to “cut” are smoke-and-mirrors lies that rely on bogus premises and meaningless rhetoric and non-binding resolutions and promises of future cuts that future Congresses are in no way bound to uphold.

Meanwhile, the United States is borrowing 43 cents out of every single dollar that it spends.  And Democrats refuse to do anything to even slow it down.

Medicare is going to go bankrupt in less than five years.  And Democrats refuse to do anything other than lie and demagogue and demonize to stop that from happening.  They will not cut spending and make it possible to extend the life of these programs in any way, shape or form.  Meanwhile, they just outright lie about the Republican agenda.

The Democrats are dishonest by definition at this point. The entire party is the party of “God damn America,” the party of hell.

Debt Ceiling Fight: Despite Lamestream Media Propaganda Claims, Sometimes ‘Compromise’ Is NOT A Good Thing

July 25, 2011

1 Kings 3:16-25

One day two women came to King Solomon, and one of them said: Your Majesty, this woman and I live in the same house. Not long ago my baby was born at home, and three days later her baby was born. Nobody else was there with us. One night while we were all asleep, she rolled over on her baby, and he died. Then while I was still asleep, she got up and took my son out of my bed. She put him in her bed, then she put her dead baby next to me. In the morning when I got up to feed my son, I saw that he was dead. But when I looked at him in the light, I knew he wasn’t my son.

“No!” the other woman shouted. “He was your son. My baby is alive!”

“The dead baby is yours,” the first woman yelled. “Mine is alive!”

They argued back and forth in front of Solomon, until finally he said, “Both of you say this live baby is yours. Someone bring me a sword.” A sword was brought, and Solomon ordered, “Cut the baby in half! That way each of you can have part of him.”

Splitting the baby in half in the name of “compromise” is NOT a good thing, for the record.

Democrats are people who are VERY happy with a dead baby.  The nearly 54 million babies they have killed in the abortion mills ought to be proof enough of that.

You can’t turn on your television or read a newspaper or a magazine without being told that compromise is good, and the Republicans are not compromising enough.

Obama ranted at a recent press conference, “Can the Republicans say yes to anything?”

Well, to quote the idiotic chant of certain famous fool, “Yes, we can!”

Republicans said “yes” to the Ryan Plan.  They also said “yes” to the ONLY plan that actually is in writing and actually passed in either branch of Congress.  Both the Ryan Budget and the cut, cap and balance bill would have averted the debt ceiling crisis that looms in front of us now.  But could the DEMOCRATS say “yes” to anything?  Not only did they say “no” to the Ryan budget, but they actually refused to say anything at all regarding the cut, cap and balance plan as Harry Reid tabled it without allowing a vote.  Harry Reid shut down debate and refused to allow the House-passed plan to come up for a vote because he doesn’t want the Democrats to have to go on record rejecting a balanced budget amendment – which would prove that whenever a Democrat talks about balancing the budget or actually cutting spending they are LYING.

Reid also demonized the cut, cap and balanced bill as “the worst legislation in the history of this country.”  Because he must have been all FOR the Democrat-passed Fugitive Slave Act.

And of course, you find out that Democrats couldn’t even say yes to the Obama budget, which would have increased the debt by $12 TRILLION and which failed in the Democrat-controlled Senate 97-0.  And that was an abject disgrace and proves as much as anything what a completely failed leader Obama truly is.

So it’s demagogic and dishonest to say that the Republcans somehow can’t say yes to anything, or even to suggest that the Democrats can.  For the record, the Democrats have produced NO plan; they have utterly FAILED to lead.  So they frankly have nothing to say “yes” to to begin with.

Barack Obama and the Democrats are despicable liars and demagogues.  Unfortuntely, the American people are becoming the sort of bad people who believe lies.

If the country were at some 50-50 balance between liberalism and conservatism, maybe one would be justified in calling for “compromise” with Democrats now.  But thanks to Obama, it simply isn’t.  We’ve veered wildly to the left, and so at this point when were more like 70-30 liberal, “compromise” just means status quo Obama liberalism.  No thanks.

After the 2008 election, Republicans came hat in hand seeking compromise with newly crowned King Obama.  But King Obama said unto them:

“Elections have consequences, and at the end of the day, I won.”

It’s kind of funny now that – after a historic ASSKICKING of Democrats by Republicans in 2010, suddenly Republicans are supposed to “compromise” with the Democrats who ran roughshod over them for the preceding two years of libery tyranny.

Is it a good thing to compromise, the way the media keeps framing this issue?

Keep in mind, the Republicans won a landslide victory in November 2010 after Democrats utterly refused to do anything to cut their reckless and radical spending.  They didn’t “compromise”; they were dragged to this point by the most massive political defeat in more than 70 years.  To try to claim that Democrats are “compromising” now is rather like claiming that Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan graciously decided to “compromise” after World War II.  They got their asses kicked over their ears, and the rest is just reality, not “compromise.”

And the Republicans ALREADY HAVE compromised.  Keep in mind the do NOT want to raise the debt ceiling; rather, they want to cut spending NOW (and if we WERE to cut spending now, we wouldn’t NEED to increase the debt ceiling).  The Republicans are willing to raise the debt ceiling; they are NOT willing to go back on promises they ran on and won on and increase taxes.

Also keep in mind that Democrats have also ALREADY RAISED TAXES BY $500 BILLION (i.e. half a TRILLION dollars).

Why on earth should “compromise” mean that they should agree to raise taxes again?  Particularly when Democrats have produced ZERO plans to cut spending and are essentially saying “Trust us not to screw you like we did the last three times we told you to trust us on cutting spending.”

Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner apparently actually had an agreement in principle with Obama to raise taxes by yet ANOTHER $800 billion on top of the $500 billion ObamaCare tax hike.  But almost immediately thereafter Obama welched on his own deal, demanding an extra $400 billion.

The New York Times – falsely and demagogically characterizing the Republicans as “The Party That Can’t Say Yes” (That already demonstrated to be an outright dishonest lie above) said of this reneged-upon deal:

“So, on the eve of economic calamity, the Republicans killed an overly generous deal largely over a paltry $400 billion in deductions.”

A paltry $400 billion.”  Only liberals could be so stupid and so utterly depraved.  This is proof-positive that hundreds of billions of dollars mean absolutely nothing to these people.  They are recklessly irresponsible fools before this country collapses never to rise again.

If the New York Times was honest (they are not, of course – which explains why they are virtually bankrupt), then they would be pushing Obama to agree to accepting $400 billion LESS in revenues.  After all, it’s only “a paltry $400 billion,” right???  These people live in a realm of dishonest lunacy.

Is compromise a good thing?

How about this for a compromise.  Suppose we propose to eradicate the 72 million registered Democrats in the United States.  Get out that great big giant can of RAID and just wipe out all these cockroaches.  Well, the “reasonable” thing to do according to liberals would be to compromise.  So obviously on this principle Democrats would be all for a plan to eradicate 36 million Democrats; because that would be going halfway, after all.

Obama and the Democrats have repeatedly cited “corporate jets” in their recent demagoguery and demonization.  This is EXACTLY parallel to the fiasco of the “luxury tax” that annihilated the yacht construction and maintenance industries in the early 1990s:

The general thinking is that the rich can afford it, and an extra 10 percent tax isn’t going to stop the fat cats from indulging in their toys. What most people don’t realize is that those able to buy a new boat also have the ability to decide not to buy. And that is what they have done.

Since the luxury tax came into effect last Sept. 30 for newly ordered boats, nobody has bought a new boat on which the tax would apply! The National Marine Manufacturers’ Association, the industry association that tracks such things, can’t find a single sale in the whole country! Not one! However, the association has been able to document in excess of 100,000 layoffs (blue-collar workers — not fat cats) and numerous boat manufacturers going out of business. All during which not a single dollar of luxury tax has been collected.

A more detailed article on the 1990 tax and how it is remarkably similar to what Obama and Democrats are now proposing is available here.

It is the same failed fools with the same failed Marxist class hatred mindset.  The Democrats rescinded that tax in 1992 – but not until they destroyed more than a 100,000 jobs.  Their policy was based on Marxism and hate.  And it failed then just like it will fail now.

EVERY SINGLE TIME we have cut income tax rates we have INCREASED REVENUE.  And EVERY SINGLE TIME we have increased income tax rates we have DECREASED REVENUE.  What history proves is that when we increase the income tax rates “on the rich,” the rich respond by sheltering their money as they are forced to massively cut back on their job-creating investments by protecting themselves.  And what invariably happens is that the percentage of tax revenues paid by “the rich” dwindle while the percentage of tax revenues paid by the poor (in the form of excise taxes) increase.  This is a documented fact going back to the days of FDR:

Do you see what happened?  FDR kept raising income tax rates on “the rich” and demanding they pay more; but revenues from income taxes fell from 38% of revenue to only 24% of revenue (and corporate tax revenues fell from 43% to 29%) , while revenue from excise taxes borne mainly by the poor (e.g., liquor taxes, cigareete taxes) skyrocketed from 19% of total revenues collected to 47% of total revenues collected.

This is what happens in actual FACT.

If that isn’t enough, even OBAMA acknowledged that it would be stupid to raise taxes in a recession:

…In August 2009, on a visit to Elkhart, Indiana to tout his stimulus plan, Obama sat down for an interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd, and was conveyed a simple request from Elkhart resident Scott Ferguson: “Explain how raising taxes on anyone during a deep recession is going to help with the economy.”

Obama agreed with Ferguson’s premise – raising taxes in a recession is a bad idea. “First of all, he’s right. Normally, you don’t raise taxes in a recession, which is why we haven’t and why we’ve instead cut taxes. So I guess what I’d say to Scott is – his economics are right. You don’t raise taxes in a recession. We haven’t raised taxes in a recession.”

Our economy is still in terrible, terrible shape.  79% of Americans say we are still in a recession.  And to quote Obama, “you don’t raise taxes in a recession.”

So how about if I listen to Barack Obama and argue that raising taxes would be an utterly TERRIBLE “compromise” to make.

Debt Ceiling Fiasco Again Shows Obama Polarizing, Dishonest And In Over His Head

July 23, 2011

First of all, this debt ceiling issue is critical and could literally lead to the complete collapse of the United States.

The U.S. dollar is the official global “reserve” currency.  Commodities such as oil are bought and sold exclusively in dollars.  And because of this status, the United States is not only able to purchase these commodities much more cheaply than other nations, but it can borrow more and finance its debt at far cheaper interest rates.

Here is an article dated 10 February 2011 containing a VERY ominous threat to the status of the dollars as the reserve currency:

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — The International Monetary Fund issued a report Thursday on a possible replacement for the dollar as the world’s reserve currency.

Major countries such as China, Russia, India and Brazil have already determined that they want to END the almighty status of the U.S. dollar.

And note all of these articles precede the current “debt ceiling fiasco.”  Which is to say that this was ALREADY a growing crisis.

If the United States defaults on any of its debt – or even if the U.S. credit rating is downgraded – the consequences could be utterly devastating.  Our low interest rates will shoot upward beyond our ability to continue financing debt; we will suddenly have economy-killing oil and commodity prices.

This wouldn’t have been such a terrible crisis if Obama had been honest and promised that the U.S. would and could meet its obligations.  Instead he used the debt ceiling deadline (said “deadline” already having been changed three previous times) to dishonestly demagogue and fearmonger the crisis ala Rahm Emanuel’s “never let a serious crisis go to waste” advice.  In short, OBAMA LARGELY MANUFACTURED THIS CRISIS.  Because all the rating agencies have done is take Obama’s demagogic rhetoric seriously.

I have said a number of times on this blog that when the Unites States financially implodes, it will happen very fast.  And this could be the last card in the house that makes the whole unstable structure come crashing down.

And here’s the thing.  Who is leading America through this minefield?

Barack Hussein Obama.

He is THE most inexperienced and unqualified president in U.S. history.  Hillary Clinton RIGHTLY ran the “3 A.M.” ad against him:

Joe Biden RIGHTLY said Obama was not ready to be president:

Sen. Joe Biden (D-DE) Reaffirmed That Obama Was Not Ready To Be Commander In Chief. ABC‘s George Stephanopoulos: “You were asked is he ready. You said ‘I think he can be ready, but right now I don’t believe he is. The presidency is not something that lends itself to on-the-job training.’” Sen. Biden: “I think that I stand by the statement.” (ABC’s “This Week,” 8/19/07)

Sen. Biden: “Having talking points on foreign policy doesn’t get you there.” (“Biden Lashes Out At Obama,” ABC News’ “Political Radar” Blog, blogs.abcnews.com, 8/2/07)

Barack Obama’s primary qualification for being president was that he had been a U.S. Senator for only 142 days prior to announcing his run for the presidency.  Prior to that, he had been a nobody.  He had been a nobody Illinois state senator.  He had been a community agitator.  He had NEVER ran a business and he had NEVER met a payroll.

Barack Obama is also THE most liberal and radical president.  He was THE most liberal Senator in the entire nation prior to announcing his run for the presidency.

Barack Obama is also the most divisive and polarizing man to ever serve as a president of the United States.  And to quote:

“President Barack Obama is the most polarizing president in American history, according to a poll released by the Gallup organization Monday.

The average difference in Obama’s approval ratings between Democrats and Republicans turned out to be 65 percent — the highest first-year gap of any president so measured.”

And Obama is the most cynical and dishonest president in United States history.

Obama ran as a transformative candidate who would transcend the political divides.  As the New York Times wrote:

WASHINGTON — At the core of Senator Barack Obama’s presidential campaign is a promise that he can transcend the starkly red-and-blue politics of the last 15 years, end the partisan and ideological wars and build a new governing majority.

To achieve the change the country wants, he says, “we need a leader who can finally move beyond the divisive politics of Washington and bring Democrats, independents and Republicans together to get things done.”

But this promise leads, inevitably, to a question: Can such a majority be built and led by Mr. Obama, whose voting record was, by one ranking, the most liberal in the Senate last year?

History proves that was an evil lie.  You just TRY to show me how this country is more unified now than it had been.  Anybody who isn’t an abject MORON knows that’s ridiculous.  And if you’re a liberal and want to argue that Obama’s failure to fulfill the above promises was somehow all Republicans’ faults, then let me simply point out that it was an incredibly STUPID as well as incredibly dishonest and cynical promise to make.  Because only the worst and frankly most demented of fools would not have realized that the other party would not follow him like some pied piper.

But when you read my article that refers to the New York Times article above, you will immediately see that Obama never even bothered to TRY to live up to his “core promise.”  He was divisive and imperious from his very first day.  Obama poisoned the well between Democrats and Republicans with his “I won” crap.  He shoved a “stimulus” that ultimately was a $3.27 TRILLION Keynesian boondoggle down the nation’s throat on a bunch of false promises that it would create jobs and get America out of recession.  He shoved a terribly unpopular socialist takeover of our medical system.  Everything the man has done has polarized and divided the nation.

By the way, Obama’s dishonesty literally permeates from Obama’s very first decision to even break his promise and run for president:

SEN. OBAMA: I will serve out my full six-year term. You know, Tim, if you get asked enough, sooner or later you get weary and you start looking for new ways of saying things, but my thinking has not changed.

MR. RUSSERT: But, but—so you will not run for president or vice president in 2008?

SEN. OBAMA: I will not.

Governor Chris Christie has similarly promised he would not run for president.  I have a feeling that Christie is a far more honest man than Obama and will stick to his word.  More on that later.

Obama began his presidency by breaking his promise not to run for president.  Obama’s “core promise” is now clearly revealed to have been a cynical lie.  The man has lied without shame so many times it is unreal.  And it becomes ridiculous to try to keep track of his lies.

Obama is also a pathetic incompetent.  He is a disgrace to the presidency.  He presided over a Democrat Party that had complete control of both the House and the Senate and his government couldn’t even produce a budget.  It was an unprecedented dereliction of a basic duty.  And we’re at something like the 815 day mark since the Democrats last passed a budget.  And Obama was the man in charge of this abject fiasco.

And then when Obama himself finally came up with a budget earlier this year, it was just a useless piece of garbage that it was voted down 97-0 in the DEMOCRAT-CONTROLLED United States Senate, with not even one DEMOCRAT able to say, “This budget WASN’T the brain-dead result of a complete fool who is an utter disgrace to this country.”  Obama is out doing press conference after press conference pretending that he wants to reduce the deficit; BULLCRAP!  That terrible budget fiasco he submitted would have added $12 TRILLION to our debt!!!

And if you’re fool enough to try to argue that Obama ISN’T incompetent, you explain those two facts.  You explain how Obama and his party could preside over this kind of complete failure to perform even the most basic function of governance.

Yesterday Harry Reid shut down any vote of the House-passed cut, cap and balance bill.  That bill has the distinction of being the ONLY bill that has passed either house of Congress or the White House that would solve our debt ceiling crisis, for what it’s worth.  No vote.  No debate.  Harry Reid just shut both down using his status as Majority Leader.  Reid called the cut, cap and balance bill “weak and senseless” and “perhaps some of the worst legislation in the history  of this country.”  Apparently because this racist bigot Reid liked the Fugitive Slave Act that his Democrat party once passed.

Meanwhile, the Democrats who refused to even DEBATE or VOTE on the ONLY bill that ANYBODY has passed to solve our debt crisis continue to say that Republicans are “unreasonable.”  Because apparently shutting down discussion on the ONLY piece of legislation we’ve got to save this country is “reasonable.”

So Democrats don’t have anything to offer but demagoguery and demonization.

Obama is discussing some kind of deal without bothering to have anything on the table.  Speaker of the House Boehner has described negotiating with Obama as trying to negotiate with Jello that’s been left out of the refrigerator.  He’s all over the place because he doesn’t have any proposal of his own to adhere to.

Senator Jon Kyle said:

SEN. KYL: But we have no idea what he’s talking about.  That’s the problem. Republicans are not willing to make a deal based upon some vague commitment that, sometime in the future, the president might be willing to look at something that he won’t identify.

It is an abject disgrace and a complete failure of leadership that Obama doesn’t have a plan to argue from or rally consensus to.

Oh, oh.  I just said “failure of leadership.”  Which forces me to quote Barack Obama on what even asking for an increase in the debt ceiling means in his own words:

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure,” he said. “It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt limit.”

That remark from Barack Obama alone epitomizes why this fool has ZERO BUSINESS being president of the United States.  The VERY WORST THING any Democrat can possibly say about Republicans is that they are being as despicable and cynical as THEIR OWN WORTHLESS DISGRACE OF A PRESIDENT.

How DARE this fraud lecture anybody about anything related to the debt ceiling after his own shrill demagoguery?!?!?

And so here we are.  We’ve got a president who is clearly incompetent, who has proven himself untrustworthy, attempting to pass a deal without having any kind of a plan whatsoever about what he wants to get done.  Republicans have nothing to examine and nobody to trust.

Republicans have been burned more than once by dishonest Democrats who want tax hikes now and promise cuts later.  The fact of the matter is that no agreement can bind a future Congress.

We may well be going down because we voted for the Antichrist’s useful idiot.  In voting for Barack Obama, we voted to cut our own throats.

Just remember this is God damn America.  And we’re getting precisely what we voted for.

One last thing.  The ONLY reason we “need” to raise our debt ceiling is because Washington CANNOT get it’s act together and CANNOT stop itself from reckless spending.  We need to cut spending, not raise our debt ceilings over and over again.  We need a balanced budget amendment, not four more years of Obama’s reckless policies.

Why Haven’t Democrats Passed ANY Budget Plan? (Hint: Because They’re Vile And They Know They’re Vile)

July 21, 2011

Today marks the 812th day since the Democrats passed a budget plan of their own.

They did not bother to pass any budget whatsoever in 2010 – in spite of having total control of the House, the Senate, and the presidency.

Barack Obama has been demanding that Republicans cave in and agree to his plan without even bothering to HAVE a plan.

In fact, the last budget Obama submitted was so utterly and completely terrible – demonstrating that he is an inexperienced failure in way over his head – that his plan go shot down 97-0 in the Senate.  Without one single Democrat willing to support the inexcusably pathetic and asinine Obama “plan.”

Where is the president’s plan?  Where are the Democrats’ plan?

That is a complete failure and abdication of leadership.  Why would they do that?  And why would they rely on blatant lies to push their agenda through fearmongering instead of offering any plan whatsoever???

Republicans have offered up several.  They passed a budget (the Ryan budget).  They passed a cut, cap and balance bill that would give Obama the increased debt ceiling he needs.  Why won’t the president or the Democrats offer a plan?

Let me answer the question: because they are evil and vile, and they KNOW they are evil and vile.

If they had the courage and integrity (either of which all Democrats were born without) to openly and honestly put their own idea on the table, the American people would recognize that Democrats are evil and vile.

And Democrats know that.  They know they have to hide their true identity and values the way cockroaches have to hide when the kitchen light gets turned on.

Democrats’ plan, therefore, is to wait for Republicans to lead, and then to attack them and demonize them for their plan.  They have no plan of their own that can stand the light of day, so they demonize the Republicans’ openly revealed plan, even as they cunningly craft a dishonest plan of their own in secret, behind closed doors.

The sad thing is that the American people are becoming more and more vile and evil.  Vile and evil people allow lies and deceit to win the day.

We’ve got surveys showing 95% of students have admitted to cheating in the last year.  And the liberal Democrat public school teachers are being caught having cheated to make themselves look better.  This government school cheating scandal is particularly bad in the Democrat-controlled stronghold of Atlanta (see also here) (yes, Mayor Kasim Reed is very much a Democrat, which tells you how this city votes).

Democrats and future Democrats should clearly be happy; their cheating ways are secure, and clearly are getting stronger and stronger.

Add to that a mainstream media – which has such a documented history of profound liberal and Democrat bias it is not even funny – and the slanted, prejudiced, distorted, biased way they routinely cover the news, and you have a case of the blind and evil leading the blind and evil.

As an example, Obama gave a news conference yesterday.  Of the 16 questions asked, 14 were of the so-called “gang of six” plan – which isn’t anything close to a “plan” in that nothing has been seriously put to paper; versus only 2 questions for the cut, cap and balance bill that just passed the House of Representatives the day before.  Further, the language routinely used to describe the Republican-passed bill (e.g., “ill-fated“) has been overwhelmingly negative and critical.

The “Gang of Six” plan is not a plan at all.  It is not on paper.  It cannot even possibly be written up before the August 2 “deadline.”  It certainly would not be scored by the CBO prior to its passage if it was acted upon.  It is nothing more than a bunch of behind-closed-door agreements and promises.  It also NEVER gets to a balanced budget.  It relies on the gimmick of confusing reductions in the budget baseline with actual budget cuts.  The Gang of Six “plan” reduces the baseline by $3 trillion.  BUT THE BASELINE INCREASES THE DEFICIT BY $9 TRILLION.  Which is to say, the Gang of Six plan increases the deficit by $6 trillion.  It’s a bunch of smoke and mirrors and lies and deceit that is being sold as a good “compromise” that will solve our debt ceiling crisis.

If the Republican-controlled House passes a plan, it is deemed meaningless by the mainstream media.  The Republicans must COMPROMISE their basic values.  Which is to say that a Republican House bill is “ill-fated” because it won’t pass the Democrat-controlled Senate.  BUT WHAT ABOUT A DEMOCRAT SENATE PLAN THAT WON’T PASS THE REPUBLICAN HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES???  Not that there IS such a creature, of course (remember, Democrats know their plans are vile and evil, and could never pass such a plan on their own; rather, they have to cover themselves behind a couple RINO Republicans the way cockroaches cover themselves under the refrigerator); but how is it that the Republican House vote can be so casually disregarded?

The answer is profound bias, combined with an arrogant, snotty attitude both of which will ultimately put this nation in its grave.

I’ll quote myself from just yesterday.  The Republicans are asking Obama, “Where’s YOUR plan?”

Obama has set forth no plan to deal with anything whatsoever regarding the budget/debt ceiling crisis:

SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE JOHN BOEHNER (R-OH): Where’s the president’s plan? When is he going to lay his cards on the table?

Senator Marco Rubio understood this when he utterly destroyed Bob Schieffer on CBS’ “Face The Nation” program after Schieffer – in his masquerade as a “neutral reporter” cited the Obama talking point as the “objective” view:

OK, so where’s the plan?  Where’s the president’s plan?  I’ve never seen a piece of paper with the president’s name on it that’s his plan to solve this crisis.  I’ve seen press conferences.  I’ve seen lectures that he’s given to the Congress.  I’ve seen these press avails where the camera comes in and takes a bunch of pictures.  I haven’t seen a plan.  Where is the president’s plan?

And President Obama’s failure to lead is undermining negotiations.  From ABC’s “This Week”:

MS. AMANPOUR: You also heard what Jack Lew said if there was part of a big deal, it would involve entitlements –

SEN. KYL: But we have no idea what he’s talking about.  That’s the problem. Republicans are not willing to make a deal based upon some vague commitment that, sometime in the future, the president might be willing to look at something that he won’t identify.

But neither Obama nor the other Democrat cockroaches will ever offer a plan, no matter how much they need to or how irresponsible they are for not doing so.  Because if they offered a plan, people would see Democrats and the Democrat Party for what they and it are.

Bad people believe lies.  And the bad people are starting to win, because the Democrats feed a steady diet of lies day in and day out.  Ultimately the bad people and the sea of lies and the Democrats will truly win out – and then we’ll have the Antichrist and the full curse of God damn America until we are truly and deservedly extinct.
