    It’s the Republicans’ principle of Fiscal Responsibility.
    -
    You know, where they not only don’t pay for two wars, but pass tax cuts while at war. Austerity is also demonstrated by passing the Bush stimulus and Medicare Part D, also without paying for them.

    The Dems prefer to do nothing so they can get a few more Scared Votes before the entire system collapses. Then they’ll just blame somebody else, as always.

    “I’m hoping Obama will explain it to you.”

    Wow! TT totally nails it! The Elephants are SO all the time trying to weasel their way out of their weaseliness (sorry weasels, and elephants for that matter…), as well as projecting on to everyone else their own rank nastiness.

    As every reputable pundit keeps pointing out, ‘entitlements’ are an incredible waste that is bankrupting the US. People pay payroll taxes for Medicare and Social Security for their entire working lives and expect to get something back??? This is clearly wrong, and MUST be stopped if the US is to remain a great nation. Those payroll taxes are desperately needed for much more important things than keeping elderly hypochondriacs alive. A decent society would not return one cent to those people who were forced to pay in, but would let them either save enough to live on, or find themselves an ice flow, like all decent old folks do.

    Who has been pointing out this fallacy of thinking?
    -
    Entitlements have been already paid for.
    -
    The waste and fraud is all in the military/espionage complex. Start there.

    Things are better now under Obama than they were under the last year of Bush.

    The ultimate difference between Democrats and Republicans—Republicans are assholes until they are personally affected by one of their asshole policies. Democrats employ this thing called “empathy” instead. We don’t have to be gay to value equality, or brown to fight against racism, or a woman to fight for women’s issues, or poor to fight for the underclass.

    “@Omnius

    Yes things have improved so much the past four plus years under a narcissist."

    Well it’s good to see howgozit is finally coming around. though I don’t know if calling someone a narcissist is relevant. Just like I don’t care if a president gets blow jobs in the oval office, so long as the country and world run as well as they did under bill Clinton, i’m fine with his stress relievers. After all I didn’t vote for a ‘saint in chief’, or a ‘moralist in chief’ or a ‘theologian in chief". but back to the matter at hand.

    yes, things are much better now than they were under the bush administration by any and every metric.

    wars ending, Unemployment trending down, housing up, stock market recovered and at al all time high, us oil production at an all time high AND ON PRIVATAE LANDS (just how the republicans claim they want it), US on the way to energy independance.

    and all this in spite of the disloyal opposition doing everything it can to thwart an economic recovery so that it doesn’t happen under a democratic administration and to hell with the country.

    let’s see, narcissist or hubris? i’ll take the narcissist, thank you very much

    and howz – welcome to the fold.

    Here the plan we take all the people on welfare and the people in jail and all the people on SS. And we send half to attack india and the other half to attack china. This way It helps cut the over population in china and india. And it leaves more money for SS because they will be no one left to collect ss and the jails will be empty cost saving and the same with welfare. God the politican will have a bundle to waste. He and then we can extend it to insurance companies then they can get rid of the entitlement also

    Our country’s military budget exceeds the outlays of the next ten countries COMBINED. Start there if you want to talk about taxation, bankruptcy, and where the money is going.
    .
    Empathy is a fundamental human trait that goes beyond politics but is reflected in politics. I will gladly vote for a party that gets this, instead of one that only cares about the top 1%, and is actively funnelling all wealth and all power to this top 1%.

    Jeez, listening to the Republicans on this feed is interesting, but it’s getting disconcerting. You’re getting more incoherent all the time, guys. What’s this new crap with India and China? Is Obama sending all your tax money or guns or something to them?

    It’s kind of like listening to CPAC. A bunch of fringers agreeing with each other until they all go over the far right edge together, hand in hand and all still agreeing with each other that Obama’s bad.

    Have fun out there in the wilderness, guys. Keep digging.

    And far better than they would have been if we elected President John"Hoover" McCain.

    @ConserveGov

    Actually, the Dems prefer to govern. It’s this weird concept Republicans don’t understand, so they filibuster any attempt, or just prevent them from getting to a vote in the House, rather than actually do their job and pass laws.
