(Washington Post)   The GOP is at war with itself over what their "poverty agenda" should be. Should they continue to ignore poor people, expand upon calling them lazy, or initiate some sort of bootstrap distribution program (with a commensurate tax cut for the rich)   ( washingtonpost.com) divider line

jakomo002: I'm a Republican shill if I rightly criticize Obama??!

If you were doing that, no one would be giving you shiat. Since you're picking random output from the outrage machine, we have to assume you're a Republican shill and appropriately ridicule you for it.
Because it's not like we can find common ground on something the left actually criticizes Obama for, like NSA surveillance. The minute it's tried, up come the cries of "YOU'RE GIVING HIM A PASS ON GITMO?" because of some nebulous reasoning like he folded too fast, he didn't resist Republicans enough, he compromised at all, he didn't have 20/20 foresight, he wasted his political capital on healthcare, and a thousand other little things that we know you're going to bring up over every little thing Obama has or hasn't done.
We've seen the song and dance before, and it's had one political party criticizing his condiment choice. We can spot your Lite version from a mile off.

jakomo002: People who genuinely want to "end poverty" don't go into US politics,

Funny...during my morning drive I heard one GOP politician say "we shouldn't extend unemployment benefits, we need to DO SOMETHING to address the root cause"...!!!

jakomo002: People who genuinely want to "end poverty" don't go into US politics, they work amongst the poor, volunteering or trying to HELP people.  Real people, face to face.

Well said.

LOL. When the poor get it, it's a handout. When the rich get it, it's a tax cut.
