How did that work out for ya in 2006? Or 2008? You like those results? That's some good bipartisanship! Mmmmmmmm, how bipartisan can you get? In modern lingo, bipartisanship for the average American means getting bent over and assraped by BOTH political parties instead of just one at a time.
Every step we take towards government controlled health care is another foot in the grave for this country, but we're supposed to be happy because it's bipartisan? Just because there's two fingers on the trigger of the gun being held to our heads doesn't make pulling that trigger any better for us. Could someone please wake the
Second, for him to continue to say that he does not hear the Republican party admit its failings or problems is to ignore some of the loudest and brightest lights in the party. From Jim DeMint to Tom Coburn to Mike Pence to PaulEmphasis is mine, because that's the part I want to answer right away - The GOP is not led by Michele Bachmann. The GOP is not led by Paul Ryan. The GOP is lead by a bunch of spineless milktoasts who have spent just as hard and just as fast as the Donks wanted under GWB. If the end results are the same, highlighting the supposed differences between people in Congress is nothing more than a fantasy. "Oh, but Barney Frank is different than Paul Ryan!" Really? Wow. Thanks for that little nugget of information, Bill. Now, when Bawney the taint-sucking parasite was running Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac into the ground under the GOP led Congress, what Republican did a damn thing to stop him? And what exactly is the punishment for wrecking the US economy with his corruption and malfeasance? Oh, nothing? Nothing at all?
Ryan, any number of Republicans have admitted the excesses of the party and done constructive and serious work to correct them and find and promote solutions. Even John McCain has said again and again that “the Republican party lost its way.” These leaders, and many others, have been offering real proposals, not ill-informed muttering diatribes that can’t distinguish between conservative and liberal, free enterprise and controlled markets, or night and day. Does Glenn truly believe there is no difference between a Tom Coburn, for example, and a Harry Reid or a Charles Schumer or a Barbara Boxer? Between a Paul Ryan or Michele Bachmann and a Nancy Pelosi or Barney Frank?
I don't give a shit if Ryan and Frank are different. Because Bawney Fwank still did whatever the fuck he wanted to do, aided and abetted by the GOP.
If the GOP had actually stuck to it's principals from 2000 to 2006, the Donks would have never won Congress in 2006, and Obama wouldn't be president right now. But when you show all the restraint and morals of a diseased Filipino whore, you're going to lose conservatives. And when conservatives are your voting base, pissing them off means you lose elections. Just ask John McCain, the least disgusting Democrat running in 2008.
So now the GOP is going to meet with the Teleprompter Jesus in a show of "bipartisanship". Oh. Joy. That just means we'll get fucked over twice as hard. I'm perfectly happy being the party of obstructionism. And the GOP whines "but but but..... Obama has a bully pulpit, and he'll use it to make us look like big meanies!" Hey GOP - if you weren't such a bunch of braindead fucking jackasses you'd have grabbed ahold of the New Media with both hands and FUCKING USED IT! You're no longer constrained by the Obama-fellating State Run Media! You have other options! But I think that you don't even WANT to use those other options, because that would mean growing a damn spine and standing up to the damned Marxist in Charge!
The only good I see coming out of this little "summit" is that the Tea Parties will take over the GOP that much faster. And the GOP will die, and be reborn. Maybe. But I don't know if we can repair the damage that will get done in the meantime.
UPDATE: Ahem. If it brays like a jackass, and acts like a jackass, it's a fucking jackass. Got it?
The top earmarkers in both the House and Senate are Republicans, even after the GOP has spent much of the past year making fiscal restraint and runaway government spending the centerpiece of its political message.
Rep. Bill Young (R-Fla.) and Sen. Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) — both atop defense spending panels — led their respective bodies in securing earmarks, according to an analysis by the nonprofit Taxpayers for Common Sense
Hey, here's an idea - if you don't want people think that you're just like the Donks, STOP ACTING JUST LIKE THE FUCKING DONKS!!!! HOW HARD IS THAT TO UNDERSTAND?!?!?!?!
