burndtdan: timmy_the_tooth: doling out tax cuts to the needy, like middle class people who make over $5,000,000 a year.

i could change "stimulus plan" to "budget proposal", but i'm too lazy.


The GOP: You're gonna love our TruckNutz!

No, no, no, you've got it all wrong. It's patriotic to question the Neolibs but treasonous to question the Republicans. Got it now?

That is completely unfair. They did a find and replace. How were they supposed to know that Word had a known liberal bias?

You know, I'm gonna give'em a break.

-No one but a few morons believe they have any good ideas.
-No one wants to hear their same lame ideas.
-They have zero political capital to get anything passed. Why actually work up a real budget?
-Their constant supporters don't read anyway.
-Rush'll tell them it's an excellent plan, and the other morons will applaud and proclaim a win.

They know that in these troubled times, what the average American REALLY cares about isn't keeping his job, life savings or home, but about the president's birth certificate and his use of a teleprompter.

then you'll love the republican party. it's led by a black guy and an indian, and instead of a budget they have a crayon drawing of a bald eagle high-fiving jesus.


Where can I buy my bald eagle high-fiving Jesus t-shirt?

NewportBarGuy: I'm just gonna leave this here:


That map doesn't make sense. All the interventionists should be clustered together around Bush/Reagan/Nixon. It's also missing the non-libertarian paleoconservatives - the Pat Buchanans who want to both GTFO of foreign policy and want invasive, Christianist-based controls on other people's behaviour and free expression.

OOOHHHH!!!!

As an English Major, their petty use of "Democrat" really offends me on several levels.

/including the one where I got a fluffy LIBERAL Arts degree
//can't help but hear Michele Bachmann's voice saying that word
///she auto-called my parents' house when I was there the other day and I tried pushing buttons hoping that I could leave HER a message telling her.. well, very rude things!

And I thought they couldn't make a PDF file worse than that "100 Things Bush Admin accomplished" or whatever the hell that was they actually dared put up at White House homepage before the end of their team.

If only they could get elected to control all the branches of government for, say, 6 years. Then we could see all of this really put into action.

I'd be shocked if they then immediately abandoned their political philosophy of fiscal conservatism. I just can't see that happening.

Oh, was it deliberate? OK.

I got all busy judging it on its lack of merit as an infographic. It doesn't visually represent the Republican party at all.

Unfortunately the Dem budget replaces the "miracle occuring" quote with a "Who cares if it works or not? We all gettin' paid".

While all of these graphs are good for the lulz, the truth is that this is just some "blueprint" thing that doesn't really explain anything, from what I can tell. When asked for examples of what would be cut, Boehner said "wait until next week". It's like trying to figure out the plot of a movie from a mysterious trailer.
