Nabb1: Are you kidding, submitter?  He just released this to the press:

"Honest... I ran out of gas. I... I had a flat tire. I didn't have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn't come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake. A terrible flood. Locusts! IT WASN'T MY FAULT, I SWEAR TO GOD!"


Howard: Come on then, let's have it. Every day you're late and every day another crazy excuse. What is it this time? Lego avalanche trapped you, did it? Your pajamas turned into nitrogen and you got stuck on the ceiling of your bedroom? Giant kingfisher came into your room and pecked you under the duvet? Got your jodphurs caught on a magic hedgehog? I write them down, you know. What is it? A scarecrow took you to Paris?

Zeppelininthesky: tenpoundsofcheese: Sliding Carp: The deficit is shrinking much faster than anyone predicted.  Does that suit you, subby?

Thanks to the GOP winning the House and taking a hard line on the budget and over-spending.

No thanks to the GOP trying to tank the economy because Obama is in office and doing their job would make Obama look good.


wow.  so much derp in so few words!  Nice job.

Yeah, people thought that getting spending under control was going to tank the economy ("oh no, spending controls automatically means full austerity and look what happened in Greece") when in fact the GOP was right.  They proved that with better spending controls and by not dramatically raising taxes (they gave in on some increases) the deficit could improve and businesses would have the confidence to hire again.

they also proved that the sky is falling panic of the sequester was just BS.
 
2013-05-15 06:03:49 PM
Yes. The administration is responsible for plenty of things. You never hear about them, however, over the sound of the GOP's five year tantrum over made up shiat.

/ Is _that_ a scandal yet?

cman: Baz744: cman: Bhopal disaster: CEO had nothing to do with it. He left managers in charge of the day to day operations. People are still calling for his arrest. No one can sit there and believe that the CEO of Union Carbide is responsible for what his underlings did but Obama isnt responsible for what his underlings do.

The CEO of Union Carbide and Obama both are morally responsible for the conduct of their underlings only if:

1) they had prior knowledge of it, and failed to stop it, or

2) they knew about it afterwards, and explicitly or implicitly ratified it, or

3) they created a culture or incentives within their organizations which encouraged what their underlings did, whether or not they knew about it in advance, or ratified it afterwards.

Touche

I am gonna have to think about that one


There are a few nuances, like "willful blindness." If the CEO or the President have a pretty good idea shenannigans are going or have down, and decline to look into them, then the relevant knowledge may be imputed to them whether they had actual knowledge or not.

LOL, tell us that again when you're crying about Obama's "record spending".

Because the GOP didn't win the House until the shellacking of 2010 and because they can't fix everything at once.



This just in: Abortion Bills and Obamacare Recalls have fixed the economy.

tenpoundsofcheese: Because the GOP didn't win the House until the shellacking of 2010 and because they can't fix everything at once.


The GOP got elected in 2010 because of JOBS. When they got into office, they were an bunch of idiots who focused on destroying medicare, attacking women's health and the right to choice, union-busting, making sure brown and black people couldn't vote, tanking the economy and lowering our trade rating, reminiscing about Ronald Reagan, destroying medicare, pretending there is no problem with guns in this country, sucking the cock of big oil companies while hating on gays, and BENGHAZI. Needless to say, the GOP lost the senate and Romney got his dancing horse served to him with a side of mashed potatoes. And the GOP has learned NOTHING since then.

So no, 2014, you guys are losing the house. Your only hope really of keeping the house is the fact that you gerrymandered the hell out of districts. The GOP is farther in the weeds than the Democratic Party was in the 80's.
 
2013-05-15 06:09:59 PM
It's been responsible for a lot of things, just none of the ones the GOP wishes/says it was.

Michelle found a big pile of shiat in the White House garden and was so pissed off that she ordered the science czar to take the shiat to his laboratory and do an analysis to figure out who did it. A week later the science czar reported back to Michelle "Well, I did a complete analysis of the shiat and determined with 100% certainty that it is dog shiat.". "Dammit!", Michelle exclaimed, "I told the servants not to let Bo outside without a leash!". The science czar replied, "Um, no Ms. First Lady, I'm saying the shiat consisted mostly of dog".

JerseyTim: Here's the thing that kills me: the President not really being down with the day-to-day operations of the DOJ and IRS is ideal. That's the way it should be. Granted, he should have strong leadership in place there in order to guide things in a responsible, legal manner, but the president should not be involved in operations.


Too bad the head of the IRS stepped down last November. I would blame Obama for not appointing a new one but the GOP would probably just block the nomination anyway.

they also proved that the sky is falling panic of the sequester was just BS.


Actually the sequester is BS because of the way it cuts funding rather than just telling all departments heads spending must be reduced by 10%, it blindly says all budgets get reduced.  That lead to crap like the air traffic controllers being furloughed rather than the secretary of X just terminating some congressman's bottomless money pit pet project (aka bridges to no where, tanks the army doesn't want, etc...)

And no the economy improvement is due to fracking and housing rebounding, sequester had nothing to do w/ it (well it may have reduced growth by 1% depending on which economist you listen to)

He's also an empty suit, gormless fool who successfully hoodwinked everyone about his Kenyan birth and Muslim faith and will destroy this country because he hates white people.

When the truth is that he's just a regular guy who approached us and asked if we could help him out. All he wanted was a cushy middle management position in the salt mines and scholarships for his daughters. We said, "sure!" Probably won't even eat the guy.

You are implying that there are only two modes:  overspending and austerity.
That is why we can't have nice things.  Fiscal responsibility is considered to be austerity by people like you.
