tenpoundsofcheese: Wessoman: 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.

Glad you think so.  JOBS have improved.  Your welcome!

So no, 2014, you guys are losing the house.

Meh, you guys said the same thing for the 2012 elections and never thought you would lose in 2010 much less in such a huge shellacking.


Seems like the GOP can't win anything else besides the House these days. ;)
 
2013-05-15 06:37:49 PM

Wessoman: So no, 2014, you guys are losing the house.


As much as I would like that, it's pretty doubtful. For the reason you mentioned.
 
2013-05-15 06:39:51 PM
Based on the press conference the President just gave, I would say yes.

tenpoundsofcheese: 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.


Oh, I don't know.  Having your cancer treatment suddenly stop seems like a pretty big deal.

But it's not you, so you don't give a f*ck.

Lt. Cheese Weasel: DarwiOdrade: Wessoman: Lt. Cheese Weasel: Zeppelininthesky: Let's see:
Killing Bin Laden  Seal Team Six did that.

OH LOLS. Seal Team Six was around for years before Bin Laden was killed. Why didn't Seal Team six kill Bin Laden when your favorite President was in office?

Think hard before you answer.

Why would they kill bin Laden when Reagan was president? Reagan's the one who turned bin Laden into the terrorist kingpin he became.

You're on a very slippery slope here considering the doings in Syria right now and who Obama is giving guns and aid to.


Yeah, you're a real credible source. LOL.

Keep on shillin', you ignorant waffletoad.

It is comforting to know that if the GOP holds on to the house in 2014, its only because they have sucessfully gamed the system, and not because their crypto-facistic policies are embraced by Americans.

Lt. Cheese Weasel: Improving the economy despite the GOP obstructing everything  Might want to let the folks in Detroit know how well things are going.


Detroit is improving.  There's still MAJOR structural problems (tax base fleeing to the suburbs, the best highway system in the US aiding and abetting the tax base fleeing to the suburbs, the Catch-22 of no taxes to pay for services and no services to attract people to pay taxes, the fact that 90% of the city has been abandoned by the cops...), but downtown and midtown are recovering, the Emergency Manager thing can't make anything worse, and the metro area itself has been fairly affluent since the metro area got really going 60 years ago (with the caveat that all the high 5-figure/low 6-figure manufacturing jobs went away, and a lot of those people are now more or less underqualified for fast food).

/I was getting salary offers for 80% of my current salary, with housing costs at 1/10 - 1/4 of what they are here.

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

That's funny that you think the cuts are why the economy is back on track.  VERY cute.

/looks over at Europe to check how austerity works out in a recession

That is really funny!
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.


So then whats the difference exactly?

What's the difference for the cuts Republicans are calling for and the failed austerity plans of Europe?

What's better than desperate Republicans trying to paint Obama with the Dubya brush?  Obama being such a good president that Dubya looks even worse by comparison.

Remember:  Democrats give everybody health care.  Republicans quadruple the price of gasoline.
 
2013-05-15 06:55:06 PM

Because spending and austerity during a recession are exactly the same as spending and austerity during a boom?

Jesus Christ, if you think Democrats and their supporters are leftist, you may want to examine the policies of Benito Mussolini. There's quite a bit there I imagine you'd like.


I don't know, I don't see many posts by Mussolini supporters on this thread.

So, Europe is being fiscally responsible and hasn't enacted austerity? Or are they continuing to overspend?

The corporate State considers that private enterprise in the sphere of production is the most effective and usefu [sic] instrument in the interest of the nation. In view of the fact that private organisation of production is a function of national concern, the organiser of the enterprise is responsible to the State for the direction given to production.Fascism is definitely and absolutely opposed to the doctrines of liberalism, both in the political and economic sphere.                                                                        -Benito Mussolini, 1935Like I said, very little daylight.

I'm still wondering how the Obama administration is responsible for the IRS issue, when BY LAW they are not allowed to be involved in IRS decisions.
 
2013-05-15 07:34:16 PM
Here's a thought.  Instead of prematurely ejaculating every-farking-time someone even farts something that sounds like the word "scandal" - do the goddammitsomuched leg-work and find out who actually is to blame and nail that sumbiatch to the cross.

Or just go back to reading dumbass shiat (like Real Clear Politics) and have your political fan-fiction written out for you nice and neatly.

Corvus: What's the difference for the cuts Republicans are calling for and the failed austerity plans of Europe?


because even republican "Cuts" arent actual cuts in the budget - they are cuts in the overall rate of growth.  A reduction in the deficit is still overspending.  That is not Austerity.

Europe has no choice but for Austerity.  The Euro isn't the global reserve currency so they cant just print however many euro they want in order to keep things afloat.

Just ask someone to explain what Austerity is, since you havent the slightest farking clue.

Especially the part about Europe not having a choice regarding austerity. It isn't like the whole basis for that policy turned out to be bad math or anything like that.

I think somebody here is mistaken in believing expansionary fiscal contraction is not a form of Austerity. So, in layman's terms, there is not much difference between what the GOP proposes and what was applied in Europe. There are differences, but still, Austerity measures of any kind don't actually work.

Of course, as Whidbey said, you are a climate-change denier, so in a way I will take your advice on what Austerity with the same weighted credibility I reserve for people who don't believe in Oxygen or think the world is really 6000 years old.
