It's a Republican way of solving a problem which we face as a nation



Now everyone just forget that ol' Mittens wholly supported an insurance mandate, 'kay? That goes double for you SCOTUS peeps.

Seems everyone wants to ignore, or at a minimum convienently forget, the healthcare lessons of Maine, Wisconsion and Massachusetts, not to mention New York's 1199 SEIU.

The Republicans have made the individual mandate the element most likely to undo the President’s health-care law. The irony is that the Democrats adopted it in the first place because they thought that it would help them secure conservative support. It had, after all, been at the heart of Republican health-care reforms for two decades.

Then there's this:

“I believe in the idea of amnesty for those who have put down roots and lived here, even though sometime back they may have entered illegally.”

Reagan is probably referring here to the Simpson-Mazzolli immigration reform act. Bi-partisan legislation. Not bloody likely to create something bi-partisan since the Congressional GOP has decided it's lot more fun to conduct themselves as insurrectionist clowns rather than as a loyal opposition.

I just wish the "so-called" liberal Main Stream Media would call these people out for their lies. Where are all the "Tepublican" posters on this blog to expalin to us how Mittens isn't really lying or flip-flopping?

Erin O'Brien said...

I watched CBS's Bob Schieffer give Mittens a total pass on the HCR controversy last Sunday on "Face the Nation." It's unbelievable to me, but apparently, we are to believe that the Republican-borne solution of the individual mandate is Obama's SOCIALISM!

fecking wankers.

VideoDude said...

Well, as seen with Scheiffer's questions on immigration, Mitt would no have answered anyway. The "so-called" Liberal Media constantly give Teapublicans passes on thier lies!

All we know about the Teapublican Party and Mitt Romney is what they hate: The Black Man in the White House!

And, speaking of haters, who do you hate, VD?

Then there's this:

"Darrel Issa(R-California)is preparing to hold AG Eric Holder in Contempt of Congress for refusing to relaese documents related to Operation "Fast and Furious" in which weapons issued by the US Gov't were found in the hands of foreign nationals and used to commit murders."

I talk to men on pretty much a daily basis who were issued weapons by the US Gov't which sometimes wound up in the hands of foreign nationals and were used to commit murders. Where is the outrage?

Pre-emptive war strikes, indefinite detentions, the legalization of illegal search and seizure.

Outrage? There is no outrage. I don't even think there will be outrage when armed drones are shooting gangland "suspects" or potential "illegals."

But, but, but ... it's keeping up safe!

Osama bin Laden won this war, folks.

Bill said...

And then there's this. The President asserts executive privilege over fast and furious docs. What's he hiding?

VideoDude said...

@Bill. I hate liars and bigots who prefer to crash our economy and hurt our country for fear of giving the Pres. a political win!

"And then there's this. The President asserts executive privilege over fast and furious docs. What's he hiding?"-Bill 10:35 am.

He's protecting the power of the presidency per classic GOP protocol.
See: Richard M Nixon. See Ronald Reagan. See: Bush II, D. Cheney, Scooter Libby...etc, etc, etc...
Darrell Issa is a bigger whore than the Mayflower Madam.

Total 100% agreed, RJ!

By the way, "Fast And Furious" was began under the GWB Admin.

Local boy makes good. Issa first got into the car-alarm business in Garfield Heights. That's his voice on the Cobra car alarm system.

I very highly recommend Ryan Lizza's excellent profile of Issa in The New Yorker.

Issa's businesses had a very inconvenient habit of burning down for the insurance money. In at least one instance, right after some important documents and hardware had been removed from the building.

I suspect that's why Mr Issa's been rather circumspect since taking over this committee until now. Scorched skeletons in your closet tend to make one more reflective before casting aspersions on the motives of others.

RJ,

Please don't forget to add Bill Clinton to your list.

Dear Anonymous,

Any regular reader of this here blog knows Bill is a troll that finds flaws with Obama, et al because they represent "The Left."(not to be confused with THE LEFT but that's another post.)Due to a weak mind and poor impulse control I regularly rise to his bait and the aforementioned post is no exception. The point obviously that if evoking Executive Privilege
indicates some sort of deception there has been ample modeling of deceptive behavior from recent GOP Presidents. It is also a matter of fact that a "Strong President" model has been the standard in the U.S. so it is sometimes appropriate for the Prez to say "Fuck you Congress, I'm The Prez." Yes, Bill Clinton sometimes said "Fuck You" or, in the alternative, "Wanna Fuck?"

Bill said...

O said he didn't know anything about f @f and was not consulted about it. Holder said that he didn't discuss it with O. Exactly why would He need to use this tactic? Are you gonna blame it on Bush? Btw, under Bush there was another disaster called wide receiver. Don't believe everything you hear on msnbc, SD.

Here's the story, so far, of the outrageous efforts of the CIA, that RJ is concerned about:

Appreciate the link Bill but is there a message in their somewhere? Looks like the same old shit to me. U.S. operatives determine who the good guys are and give them guns then deny they've done it. Reckon they might inadvertently give a gun to someone who has less than U.S. interest in mind who might then use it to kill someone who may be more inclined to support U.S. interests? Or, in the alternative, a bunch of innocent people just trying to make it through another day. And then when a western journalist reports the story he will be excoriated by you and your right wing buddies as a member of the anti-American liberal media. You fuckers just don't get it, never did never will. Dump a bunch of weapons and ammo somewhere bad things happen. It's ok in (name of umpteen countries here) but not in Juarez? Clueless.
