AdolfOliverPanties: I think that there is oftentimes the impulse to suggest that if the two parties are disagreeing, then they're equally at fault and the truth lies somewhere in the middle, and an equivalence is presented - which reinforces I think people's cynicism about Washington generally. [The debate over deficit reduction] is not one of those situations where there's an equivalence. I've got some of the most liberal Democrats in Congress who were prepared to make significant changes to entitlements that go against their political interests, and who said they were willing to do it. And we couldn't get a Republican to stand up and say, we'll raise some revenue, or even to suggest that we won't give more tax cuts to people who don't need them.

So, GOPers, where is he wrong?


there is noting wrong with this as presented. but, as we all know, there is a lot more going on in any congressional debate that just the simple statements that are relayed to the public.

we all know its a popular tactic to put retarded things in bills just so you can make a statement, just like the one above to make the other side look bad.

i cant believe all you super smart libs fall for it every time.

Barry Hussein Sombrero Fartbama: President Barack Obama: sammyk: I have heard this exact same argument hundreds if not thousands of times right here on fark.
OK, President Obama, What is your fark handle?

Here I am, biatch.

That guy's a poseur. I'm the real guy.


You can't fool me you sly sumbiatch. I know your using multiple alts. I always figured you were trolling us with black animals and wronged southern men.

MyRandomName: AdolfOliverPanties: He's wrong in suggesting gop wasn't willing to raise revenue. They wanted to do so by removing tax deductions which is one way to raise revenue. He is lying in Saying the gop wasn't willing.

Also the tax compromise of 86 shows how much bullshiat a raise taxes now cut spending in the future is. Guess how that turned out? Hint... Cuts never happened, in fact spending increased at a faster pace.


*ahem* Reagan deficit and Reagan defense budgets.

/And the taxes were raised on the backs of the poor and middle class, revisionist history farkwit.
 
2012-04-04 02:25:35 PM

qorkfiend: This absurdity was then compounded and highlighted by the insistence of the GOP to let the payroll tax cut lapse, accompanied by a deafening silence from Mr. Norquist.


Can't give in if it means a win for Obama (unless somehow they are shamed into it by their constituents screaming "WTF ARE YOU GUYS DOING THIS FOR!!!")

Lurking Fear: That year we would barely make a dent in the 16+ trillion debt. And even less than the 2.3 trillion the federal government collected in 2011, because a good deal of that went to pay the interest on the debt.


Your math sucks. The $16 trillion would drop to about $14 trillion. That's what I call a good start. The "good deal" of the $2.3 trillion that went to servicing the public debt was about $425 billion, so the bulk of the $, about 4/5ths, would go to reducing the debt..

Being black.

But one of his parents is white. Shouldn't he be white like this guy:

I do think that at least some of the media are starting to move away from the intellectually lazy "both sides are equally loud, and therefore equally deserving of consideration" assumption. For example, it seems like most of the stories in the mainstream media (i.e., not Fox News) I see these days about global warming, whenever there's a reference to the deniers, will have a disclaimer somewhere like "A large majority of climate scientists believe in human-caused global warming."

Right, present all of the ideas as if they are all equal and let the people decide. Great.

Personally, I think it might be nice if we had some sort of unbiased, reliable filter system to choose what ideas are worthy of presentation to the consumers and what are not. Perhaps even to distill the ideas down into a more quickly or easily consumed format. But whatevs.

Is there no lie this man will not tell?

He says: And we couldn't get a Republican to stand up and say, we'll raise some revenue, or even to suggest that we won't give more tax cuts to people who don't need them.

The Washington Post dismembered this claim. So now he goes to the press and says "hey, stop looking for answers that I haven't pre-approved."

To recap the last couple weeks, alone (and skipping instances where one might dispute whether Obama was the one picking the fight):

1. Obama has attacked the Catholic Church and its pratitioners
2. Obama has attacked the Supreme Court
3. Obama has attacked the Press

I can see why you're all such big fans. Clearly, you found yourself a fighter.

Philip Francis Queeg: skullkrusher: lennavan: Right, present all of the ideas as if they are all equal and let the people decide. Great.

present the ideas without editorial commentary. Present facts related to the issue. Don't, however, take sides.

And when a Republican says something that is factually untrue like "The University of California does not teach American History", should that be presented without commentary?


no, that would fall under the category of factually relevant, don't you think?
