    Great. I will now spend my day imagining tsunami’s of vomit. Rooms full of spew. Orphans swimming in Urrp. A chain reaction of technicolor yawns. Not to mention oppossums riding cotton ponies.

    “Job creators need ponies!” Pitch perfect—couldn’t have summed up the lower and middle class’s willingness to sacrifice self at the altar of the rich any better!

    The difference between then and now? We have forgotten that the purpose of government is defending individual rights. Not solving problems. Not managing the economy. Not redistributing wealth. Not doling out charity. Not granting favors to cronies or constituents.

    “…to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men…” Remember?

    Again with the possum jokes. Will it never end?

    pschearer, your comment doesn’t really make sense. the government has evolved to fulfill the wishes of the people. also, your statement about how it used to be is highly simplistic and does not accurately assess the early US government’s role in the lives of the people.

    @pschearer- from the document you folks want us to take verbatim, unless you don’t agree with it:
    “We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution…”

    Van Jones is on the mark when he says teabaggers are only one third patriots, real patriots don’t just want liberty, they want liberty and justice for all.

    And to clear up any possible confusion, “our posterity,” doesn’t mean the back ends of horses.

    At least those menstruating opossums finally got their dues.

    “It is too early for politicians to presume on our forgetting that the public good, the real welfare of the great body of the people, is the supreme object to be pursued; and that no form of government whatever has any other value than as it may be fitted for the attainment of this object.”
    — James Madison, Federalist Paper 45 [emphasis added]

    And Tom again does NOT get it about the “negotiations.” Hostage crisis, Tommy boy, NOT actual negotiation. ALSO, the Republicans got next to nothing of what they wanted. So who bowed to whom?

    One may make the argument that a nation should be brought to its knees by a minority of ideologues, and that when said nation is crippled it is to be picked over and cannibalized for spare parts. One may make the argument that the majority should suffer. Just get the hell out of my bar when you do it.

    jimjammer, it depends on whom the Repubs nominate to run against him. It seems the Tea Party is the Tail that wags the Elephant, so if they hijack the GOP convention and insist on a nominee that passes THEIR muster, Obama keeps the center. McCain got as many votes as he did in 2008 because he was the LEAST scary of the Republicans.
