    she has NO shame in her biased ageanda.

    she represents a bunch of uppity, utopian wannabe rich assholes in Williamson County, on the south side of Nashville Metro. I've met her in person, and immediately though of "bitch".

    Excerpted from the interview:

    DAVID GREGORY: All right, Congresswoman, before-- before we move on, make the case for why, as Ron suggests, the Republican Party is on the right side of this economic debate in this election year.

    REP. MARSHA BLACKBURN: The reason the Republican Party is on the right side of this economic debate is simply this. The election is going to be about freedom, and the American People know that being dependent on the federal government for home loans, for your health care, for your education, for your jobs, even for the kind of light bulb that you want to put in the fixture, is not the aspirations of a free people. And because of that, we are on the right side of this argument. Everything that we're doing--

    DAVID GREGORY: What did-- hold on, Congresswoman.

    REP. MARSHA BLACKBURN: --discussing here effects--

    DAVID GREGORY: What did freedom get the American People during-- that led to the financial collapse? Is that not a fair question about the limits of-- of the free, capitalist system?

    REP. MARSHA BLACKBURN: We know-- we know that if you let free markets work, there is no expiration date on the free market. There is no expiration date on the American economy. What the American People do not like is the overreach of government--

    DAVID GREGORY: I'm sorry, Congresswoman, my question was what did the free-- what did the free market get us-- what did freedom get us in the economic collapse? You had an absence of government regulation, and you had the free market running wild. Look what the result was.

    REP. MARSHA BLACKBURN: And you need-- and you need more oversight. We all agree with that. And the financial bill that Senator Corker and them are working on would lead to more oversight. The Goldman charges that have come forward now, David, they have come forward under existing SEC rules. More oversight, which I have always been a proponent of--

    What a liar!! Speaking out of both sides of her damned mouth!! THIS IS PROOF OF HOW THE GOP IS PULLING A CON ON AMERICA!

    The Republican economic ideas currently being proposed are the same economic proposals that Bush and the Republican controlled Congress implemented from 2001-2007, and that led to the 2007-2009 Bush recession.
    They're offering ZERO new ideas.
    They've learned NOTHING from their mistakes of the past decade.
    Having a party that cannot learn from it's mistakes ( like Bush couldn't) running the country again - is a truly frightening prospect.
    We haven't even completely recovered from the damage they did during the Bush years yet.

    The Repubs are trying to repackage and rebrand and sell the same tired, old, failed, policies that caused the worst recession since the Great Depression, to the American people again.

    Going back to the Bush Republican economic agenda is the LAST thing our economy needs.

    For Blackburn, a hopelessly biased, partisan Repub liar, to say that the Repubs support "more oversight" - when the Repubs in Congress are TOTALLY obstructing the Wall Street reform bill that the Dems are trying to pass, and to say that she has "always been a proponent of" more oversight - which is a blatant LIE - is the kind of EXTREME DECEPTION that the Repubs are resorting to, to try and fool voters into voting for the same failed Republican economic policies that wrecked our economy and led to the high numbers of people who are still unable to find a job.

    The "tea party", which she speaks so glowingly of, is also NOTHING but an attempt to REBRAND the Republican party.
    The fact that the teabaggers are ONLY supporting Repub candidates for the 2010 election shows VERY clearly that the teabaggers are NOT non-partisan and independent.
    They're just Repubs trying to disguise theirselves as something else by using a different name.

    Tea party = Republican party.
    Period.
    Anybody who denies that is either full of shit or butt ignorant.

    They do a replay of "Meet the Press" on MSNBC and the other NBC cable channel later today. I'll make sure and check it out. I usually watch, but got distracted this morning.

    David Gregory deserves credit for not allowing her to get away with the illogical and dishonest BS she was spouting.
