    42 Freshman republican reps sent a letter to the White House asking President Obama to cease and desist on pointing out to the public that the Ryan plan they signed puts an end to medicare as we know it

    Republican freshmen ask Obama to 'stop the political rhetoric' on Medicare
    By Julian Pecquet - 05/10/11 04:05 PM ET
    House Republican freshmen wrote a letter to President Obama on Tuesday urging him to get Democrats to "stop the political rhetoric" and abandon "Mediscare" tactics.
    The letter was signed by 42 freshmen who voted for a budget blueprint that has come under intense criticism for its proposal to replace Medicare with subsidies to purchase private insurance.


    in other words ........

    Yeah. This is the most amazing thing I've ever seen. I can't believe after they have called Obama and the Dems every name under the sun, they're whining about rhetoric.

    The Dems would know about whining. They did it incessantly from 2000-to-2008. In fact, they are still whining about those years. Whaaaa Whaaaa Whaaaa, It's Bush's fault...Whaaaa Whaaaa Whaaaa Dick "Darth Vader" Cheney...Whaaaa Whaaaa Whaaa "He Lied".....Whaaaa Whaaaaa Whaaaa icon_rolleyes.gif

    I wouldn't be claiming bragging rights about the bush / cheney years, because we're just two years out from their admin. and what keeps showing up is not a pretty picture, and added to that is from the way things are turning out the dems should have been doing a lot more 'whining', because they stood back too much and thereby allowed obsene waste and fraud to take place in bush's unecessarry Iraq adventure, including the travesty of torture which according to most professionals rendered no real useful actionable intelligence.

    This current case of the letter signed by all those freshmen repubs shows a lot of hypocrisy, but if you've noticed the far right religious politicians are like their christian backers, they are always right, they can do no wrong, they justify any amount of hypocrisy with no embarassment at their bate and switch tactics. A REAL CLASS ACT !!!!

    Let's not forget that for most of the above-mentioned, the Dems actually voted in favor of them so they could be possible. Of course, if these things went well, the Dems would be reminding us every 5 minutes of this fact. However, they didn't go so well so they seemingly had nothing to do with any of it icon_rolleyes.gif

    In this you are right !! I wish there were more from both sides with some real courage of their convictions that would lead them to being consistent and talk out of one side of their mouths. Dems were weak as wet noodles through most of that term of bush / cheney. Sanders of Vermont remained true though, but he's only one and an independent, we need about a hundred more like him.

    You and others are likely only perceiving them as "weak" because many of the policies they also happened to vote in favor for didn't turn out the way many, including the Republicans, had hoped. Had they turned out differently, you'd probably be praising them for being so strong.

    Which of those policies turned out poorly?
    The stimulus, which averted another depression?
    The GM bailout, which has turned the company from bankrupt to one that just reported $2.5 billion in earnings?
    The health care law, much of which hasn't taken effect yet, but the part that has has prevented insurers from revoking coverage from sick people and prohibited insurers from using pre-exisiting conditions to deny coverage?

    I'm curious, too, Curious. Which of these (and others) do you think disappointed anyone?




    Curious lives in a FOX "News" fantasy, where Bush did a good job and is thought of fondly by the American people.
    LOL!
    HA!
    The fact is that the only president in modern history who is disliked more than Bush - is Nixon.
    Not only that, but Bush is also blamed by the American people for the lingering economic woes that were caused by the Bush recession.
    RIGHTLY SO!

    Politicians are a lot like nappies (diapers) They should be changed frequently and for the same reasion.

    With the misleading statements coming out out of the White House at this time, I feel it's time for a change, as it all smells like shit to me.

    I was talking about policies during the Bush administration when the Democrats had control of congress and voted on and passed many things that didn't turn out so well. Both parties were to blame but, of course, many of you libs with selective memory only want to blame the Republicans

    The irony is that YOU quote things on FOX NEWS (that is, when you're not regurgitating something from MSNBC) more than I ever do. In fact, I never quote FOX NEWS. It's not even my news channel of choice. As for Bush being thought of fondly by the American people, I can only speak for myself, and many MANY others that I know, in saying that Bush has far more supporters out there than you and others here may choose to believe. So please quit speaking for "The American People" because you don't have a clue from down there in Sierra bum fuck Vista what "The American People" think.

    Too true!

    The Repubs just have no shame, and think they can say ANYTHING - and that enough clueless idiots will believe them, that it will work for them.
    And because they have the extensive propaganda machine of Fox and right-wing talk radio backing them up, they often get away with it!

    It's so destructive for our country that we have a political party that doesn't care about doing a good job for the American people.
    Instead - all the Repubs care about is trying to win elections, and if the cheap and easy tactic of LYING works for them , they're more than happy to go there!

    Unlike you - I'm not offering my opinion or meaningless personal anecdotal experience.
    I'm just reporting the facts.
    AS PER GALLUP:
    71% of Americans blame BUSH for the economic woes we continue to suffer with as a result of the 2007-2009 Bush recession.
    ONLY 48% blame President Obama.
    http://www.gallup.com/poll/143024/Bush-Takes-Brunt-Blame-Economy-Obama.aspx

    And that poll was taken last September - right before the Repubs took the House - when Obama's poll numbers were lower than they are today.

    But, you and Geezer can continue to live in a delusional pro-right-wing fantasy on Bush.
    Fine by me!
    The more you Repubs defend Bush's record on the economy - the better!
    A strong majority of the American people DO NOT AGREE.

    Sorry

    When it comes to .... Ahem stretching the truth and out and out lying there is NO comparison when it comes to FOX news

    There are whole careers that have been made making fun of them
    And it's an accepted .... Iguess vice of the press these days
    Have the pundits say something on your Non News shows then repeat the lie on the news (sic) portion of your airtime

    I think Steven Colbert's and Jon Stewzrt's families thank you very much

    ___________________________________________________

    This is what comes from Congressmen who side with the religious far right who in their minds are always right because "GOD" is on their side to "TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK". An attitude of our side with "GOD'S BLESSING, against the evil 'them'. They cannot be embarassed even by such stupid and hypocritical an act as this letter, "GOD" is with them so they need show no embarassment for "GODS CAUSE" and no such thing as "COMPROMISE" is necessary with "GOD ON YOUR SIDE".

    Wherever religion is found behind problematic Ideology, you'll run into this same mind bending shamelessness. Its the same mentality as Israel has toward the Palestinians. The only way to deal with them is to double down and give them hell with the truth, expose their idiocy with facts untill they like spoiled children see that they cannot have their cake and still eat it.

    That's all well and good, as long as you are clear that the results of a "Gallup Poll" are not necessarily "Facts", they are just results of a poll. Sorry, but polls do not necessarily reveal anything factual other than the people polled felt a certain way. I know you like to spew these poll results ad nauseum as if they somehow should be taken as the gospel but, sorry, they only tell part of the story.

    Screwy Louis from Sierra Vista thinks that he is speaking for the American people when in reality he is only speaking for the extremist liberal hens that never seem to stop squawking out loud on here with anti GOP this and anti GOP that. Go figure.
