netcentric: (quoting from Forbes): The most imperial president in American history,


Every time I hear that Obama is an "imperial" president, I think what they really mean is

GoldSpider: Corvus: BillCo: Fearmongering???  Obama is the one who is saying the world will come to an end because of the sequester.

I thought you guys wanted less government services so why are you complaining that they are going to go away.

I still haven't figured out why the GOP isn't celebrating this as a victory for their fiscal philosophy.


Because at least one white person will be adversely affected.

At times, it seems as if "we have a $16 trillion debt" is the sum total of the party's argumentation.

Hey now, that's not fair.  They also have rape and guns, and being raped for your guns, and being raped because you didn't carry a gun, and all the other lovely combinations of rape and guns that they can come up with.

netcentric: Ha ha ha.....     Obama asked for sequestor.    He had Joe Biden walk the docunents up to the Hill.
giggle.   Now he's doing the ERHMAGERD!

Classic Quote of Today:    from Bill Freeza of Forbes"Well, Jay Carney, explain this to me: The most imperial president in American history, a man who boasts that he will rule by Executive Action if Congress refuses to pass legislation he favors, can't figure out how to direct spending cuts in a way that does the least harm to the American people?...I can't wait."


At this point, because of the way the GOP has acted for the last 4 years, and in particular the last 4 months, I'm prepared to accept "Because Fark You, Bill Freeza" as the WH response.  Eventually, and I'll be honest, it took some time, but eventually you exhaust all your good will and everyone just hates you and doesn't rightly give two farks what you think, what you have to say, or how 'clever' you're being.

So... basically...

Too late, assholes.  You lost the messaging on this one and if you can't figure out how to get back on that gravy train you're going to find yourselves in a world of hurt in 2014.  I know personal responsibility is something y'all struggle with, but you've got nobody to blame but yourselves.

The first time I saw you doing this, I thought you were having a stroke.

joonyer: TFA starts out well, but then fades into mumbling and grumbling about celebs and the liberal elite. It's essentially the same thing much of the right has done for years, and that's paint all non-GOP folks as immature children who lack substance, moral or otherwise.

Keep going with that, it's worked pretty well so far.


That was a lot of herp at the end of that derp. Seriously, it was like the article was trying to steer the reader's opinion by getting into a wagon rut and then going off the beaten path. Like the author was hoping you'd end up agreeing with the article's conclusion just because the introduction seemed 'reasonable' on the surface.

Then, oh look.

all you people about to lose your job just remember, Obama offered up 4 trillion in spending cuts and Boehner walked away and left it on the table to protect the top 1%'s tax cuts.

the Republican Party and I are similar. We are both going through a turbulent transition in our lives, where we aren't sure who we are anymore. The ideals we once held were great- solid. We were steadfast in our belief that we had the best in mind of ourselves, our family, the future. But now, damn...I don't know. I had an event in my life- losing a crucial person in my life, being forced to demote to a 4K-per-year less position within my company, loss of confidence- and these things have taken their toll. I mean, in my desire to get back on track, I feel like I've traded some of those values I once held to get ahead, 'making friends' with people for the connections; people I would never ever want in my life normally. But here I am, and now I don't know where to go or who to be. Maybe the Republican Party and I need to go to counseling.

Fearmongering???  Obama is the one who is saying the world will come to an end because of the sequester.  At least, he was until last night when he saw that it might actually come to pass.  Now he's all "you probably won't even notice it".
