Yeah, right. Next you're going to tell me Pat farking Robertson is for the legalization of pot.

"Republicans were able to block Bill Clinton's health care reform effort in 1994 because they had "a positive alternative approach" to health care. "

we call that alternative approach "OBAMACARE"

And for the record, Lee Atwater is dead, and isn't he more responsible than Gingrich?
 
2013-08-14 05:57:17 PM  
I think it's telling. When Newty Newt says you're being too big of an asshole, you really start looking at your life and wondering how you got to be such a giant gaping asshole.

Obstructionism is a good thing when you're blocking bad, unconstitutional or just plain evil legislation.

For the negative part maybe. He didn't have anything to do with the obstructive part. Newt deserves that recognition more than anyone else.

Amazingly, when Republicans controlled the House, Senate and Presidency for 5 years, there was NOTHING bad, evil or unconstitutional. So not evil, they nearly destroyed the economy.

Only NOW do people like you whine and cry. AMAZING!!!

Obstructing and criticizing the ACA without having any concrete ideas for a better program makes the GOP's default position that of maintaining the status quo, which, as an alternative, can be demonstrated to be unsustainable. The ACA needs to be improved, and that would be a constructive goal.

/By the way, Mr. Gingrich - the GOTP has *loads* of health care ideas.  Unfortunately, they are all geared to *destroying* health care in this country.

Gingrich, who was speaking at the opening session of the Republican National Committee's summer meeting, fielded a question about "Obamacare" and recalled that Republicans were able to block Bill Clinton's health care reform effort in 1994 because they had "a positive alternative approach" to health care.

Again, as if nobody else ever lived through that time except him so he thinks he can get away with saying any fool farking thing that falls out of his mouth, Newt "Moonbase" Gingrich is lying.

This is what killed Hillarycare and it was paid for by the insurance companies.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dt31nhleeCg

That and every media outlet questioning out loud if there was really a health care crisis at all because Bill Kristol told them to.

Nobody should ever listen to Newt. Ever.

Damnest thing is, I'm not a rapeublican either.  I oppose much of what those assholes support as I oppose much of what the emocrats want.  I want almost all of the bullshiat stopped because that's what the Founding Fathers would have wanted.  What they didn't get right had been taken care of within 100 years.

Smeggy Smurf: that's what the Founding Fathers would have wanted


The founding fathers are all dead and you have no idea what they would have wanted. They fought with each other over practically everything when they were alive. Let's hear no more about what the founding fathers "would have wanted" because that's just a load of horse exhaust intended to add legitimacy to a position; a rhetorical trick and a stale one.
 
2013-08-14 07:24:19 PM  
Hypocrisy is intrinsic to right wing obstructionism.
 
2013-08-14 07:31:57 PM  
Who was it with the quote about 'We're going to be known for what we oppose, rather than what we support.'? I remember one of these assholes saying it after Obama won, but I can't find it. Seems like it was Rove, but I'm not sure.

Are you thinking of this:

"We should not be judged on how many new laws we create. We should be judged on how many laws we repeal," Boehner said.
 
2013-08-14 07:43:02 PM  
So the "don't get sick, and if you do get sick, die quickly" crowd is too extreme even for Gingrich.

No, I think there was another one, I think it was before that, right after the election(the first one).

Does that include filibustering your own bills? Because the GOP has done that too.

"Republicans were able to block Bill Clinton's health care reform effort in 1994 because they had "a positive alternative approach" to health care. "

Well, letting poor people die because they can't afford health care IS part of the Republican core belief system, so I guess they would consider it a positive.

That shameless duplicitous sociopath has a point.

I'll do you one better. They didn't even agree with themselves throughout their lives. You can seriously take almost any issue, and find at least 1, but usually as many as 4-5 quotes from any "founding father" and easily use that quote to justify why they did or would think something.
Madison tried to all but get rid of the states with the constitution and was a total federalist.  As soon as Jefferson got back from Paris and Washington was elected though, Madison was a states right nut.  Later, he moved back towards the center.
Jefferson went on and on and on about how 'if its not in the constitution, you can't do it" in a way that would have got on Ron Paul's nerves.  But when it came time for the Lousianna Purchase, he suddenly didn't have time to worry about the constitution's lack of authority.

so seriously, anytime a person brings up "founding fathers" in a debate,  I instantly know three things about the person I am talking to.
1. they don't have two cues to bang together about history or "the founding fathers".
2. they can not think for themselves because they are more worried about the opionions of people who have been dead for almost 200 years.
3. they most likely suffer from some serious cognitive dissonance issues and contradict themselves with their ideology at least as much as Jefferson did.

Thread over with the headline.

In Newt's defense, back in his day they actually knew the difference between policy and rhetoric.  Now the rhetoric is the policy.  But then Newt is the one who planted the seed and made the initial Faustian pact.
