Republicans are insinuating that Obama's "delay", aka, seeking input from naysayers and congress before making a decision regarding strategy in Afghanistan, is indicative of weakness on Obama's part. Apparently, Republicans have been suppressing Congressional War Powers and the Constitution for so long now that they just assume it's a given that everyone does so, and failure to do so is smugly rebranded as "delay".
Republicans have sold the meme that they just need more “time” to draft a good health care reform bill. More time? They had control of the House, Senate and WH for 6 years and they never even brought this issue up! They’ve had all summer to review the various plans and come up with an idea. Heck, they took us into a pre-emptive war with a sovereign nation quicker than that!
Sarah Palin’s ghost-written book, “Going Rogue; An American Life” is set to come out early, on Nov 17, in time for the holiday season, and I’m really impressed that she has now managed to complete, albeit with the help of 4 writers and who knows how many editors, one speech and one book! Looks like she may not quit everything she starts….just those things icky, hard like being governor of a state facing financial difficulties after years of being flush. When the going gets tough, the pitbull gets quittin’!
Sarah Palin actually managed to show up for her speech in Hong Kong, which wasn't surprising because apparently all it takes to get her to go anywhere is a healthy paycheck. Palin spent her first speech on foreign soil trying to equate herself with President Obama, and going on the attack. Welcome to the new definition of patriotism in the GOP.
Republicans and Joe Wilson shamed this nation, shamed their party, shamed South Carolina, and shamed their office last night. Having established that our Republican representatives are liars and/or illiterates, it seems that being Republican representative should be considered a pre-existing condition. As such, We the People no longer wish to pay for their healthcare, which they currently receive for the duration of their lives after serving.
In an interview with World Net Daily, Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann claimed that Democrats are sabotaging both her and Sarah Palin because they want to see a Democratic woman become president first. Bachmann said, "So they're doing everything they can to, I think, sabotage women like Sarah Palin."
Levi Johnston keeps dropping bombs on Sarah Palin as in the new Vanity Fair piece where he claim wanted to secretly adopt, her teenage daughter's baby, “Sarah told me she had a great idea: we would keep it a secret—nobody would know that Bristol was pregnant. She told me that once Bristol had the baby she and Todd would adopt him."
In what’s been described as the "American Ding Dong goes to Hong Kong" by astute international posters, Mrs Sarah Palin (failed beauty contestant, failed VP candidate, and aborted first term Governor) has been asked to speak at the CLSA Investment Convention in Hong Kong, where she will give a speech on a topic such as geopolitics.
We keep hearing from the far right that they want their country back. What country are they talking about? I fear they mean the brash, cruel America of the last 8 years, instead of the America built on the ideals of social justice for all. When they say they’re losing their “freedoms”, they’re referring to not healthcare, but their guns.
This week in politics brought us irony so thick you can cut it with a knife, as the Republicans waged war against the American people’s right to healthcare, using their standby shock and awe campaign. What’s shocking is that The Royal Republicans haven’t come up with another game yet. Terror, shock and awe? Is that all you got? Looks like they blew their wad in August.
Republicans are playing the terrorism card to dissuade Attorney General Eric Holder from investigating torture. Nine GOP lawmakers have sent a letter to Holder warning that the U.S. could face a terrorist attack if the attorney general appoints a special prosecutor to investigate the CIA’s use of torture against “war on terror” suspects.
Just because Michele has Crazy Eyes, doesn’t mean that God doesn’t love her. Not only does God love Bachmann, but God speaks directly to her. Opens doors for her. Anoints her, even. And now He wants her to run for President. Take that, you anti-American liberals!
Apparently, the Republican Clown Show is making decisions for us right now, even though we are in the majority. Sarah Palin’s infamous “death panel” lie has infected the dialogue and Newt grabbed her torch of cynical dishonesty. Newt, as you know, needs no help doing or saying whatever is most politically expedient for him. From there it spread to Grassley and then invaded the majority of the Republican representatives. They now won’t commit to whether or not they think Obama wants to kill grandma.
In the case of Sarah Palin's accusation against Obama, I guess I'm gonna have to go with all three (stupid, lying, and lazy), with a strong emphasis on #2, because during her administration, the state so mismanaged Medicaid that over 250 people died waiting for the program. Hundreds more did not receive treatment. Over eight lawsuits were filed against the state division, bringing the attention of the state auditors, who notified Alaskan officials on June 26 that the entire program was being shut down due to mismanagement. In fact, the Supreme court ruled last year that the state had improperly cut off or reduced services to more than 1,000 needy people.
Ex-governor Sarah Palin stands accused of the federal crime of attempted bribery in addition to violating the Alaskan constitution, in connection to a lawsuit previously filed against Palin. The Plaintiffs, who filed the amendment to their original lawsuit in federal court on Aug 3, 2009, allege that Palin offered state funds and support of legislation to third parties in exchange for those parties convincing Plaintiffs to drop their original lawsuit in federal or state court.
Just when you thought Real Americans were going to be shut down in Town Hall meetings across the country, democracy thwarted yet again by the Thug Tactics of the right, we hear a rallying roar from our union brothers and sisters.
A leaked memo reveals what’s behind the crazies claiming they "don’t want no socialized medicine" at recent Town Halls. Republicans are coordinating an assault and harassment campaign of Democratic leaders’ Town Hall meetings in an effort to kill Health Care Reform and fool lawmakers into believing there is wide-spread opposition to the notion of human beings in a civilized nation being given access to health care.
Why so angry, Sarah? It seems an Alaskan blogger, Gryphen, who writes at The Immoral Minority and the Alaska Report broke a story Saturday morning that the Palins' marriage was in "spitsville" due to affairs on "both sides". In response, Palin's lawyer shook his fist at Gryphen, and threatened that if he did not take down his blog report by 3 PM, he will be served papers at the kindergarten where he works!
So, there you have it. It’s the evil liberals’ fault that the birthers have made such a fuss. It certainly had nothing to do with the many Republican senators who refused to sign a bill celebrating HI as a state, which just so happened to mention that President Obama was born there. Naw. Republicans are really mad at HI and just don’t want to acknowledge the state. Just cuz. Stop asking questions.
The Thrilla from Wasilla who just a year ago was touted as the country’s most beloved Governor (a statistic that had NOTHING to do with her socialistic program of sending thousands of dollars from the oil companies to each Alaskan citizen) is no longer a contender.....
