I keep hearing John Boehner and Mitch McConnell and a whole slew of second-and-third tier Republicans bashing the Obama jobs speech that will be delivered this Thursday by the President. Several of the GOP D-listers in Congress are trying to scoop some headline spotlight attention by declaring that they’ll boycott the speech because “America needs […]

Protecting the rich and victimizing the poor is GOP’s plan. Palin stays stupid, blaming “lamestream media” for her word-salad. Tax cuts for the rich must be preserved at all costs, but slash Medicare. […]

“But instead of giving Americans what they want, Democratic leaders plan to use the last few days that lawmakers expect to spend in Washington this year focusing on everything EXCEPT creating jobs, which will cost us even more jobs. They’re wasting time with immigratio­n, a repeal of the ‘don’t ask, don’t tell,’ a reorganiza­tion of […]

As a blogger/reporter/thinking individual, I love it when I don’t have to really come up with any pithy, sarcastic or salient points on my own to prove an argument. In this case, regarding the perpetual pissing contest about the debt ceiling going on in Washington between “Our way or no way because all we care […]
