The edge of the fiscal cliff; with nowhere to go but up

December 18, 2012

0

It fascinates me to watch (often reluctantly) the endless parroting of Republican sound bites, talking points and blanket statements about the “dangers” of the fiscal cliff. One should not that the same partisan pundits who are bashing the President for having a bad plan are the same malcontents who spent the last year dutifully passing […]

F.A.C.T.S.; The Republican Acronym

October 12, 2012

0

The Republican definition of “facts” is that it’s an acronym: GOP House of Representatives F.A.C.T.S. = Fictitious Allegations, Contrived Theories and Spin GOP Senate F.A.C.T.S. = Farcical Antics, Conspiratorial Theater, and Spin Romney F.A.C.T.S. = False Attempts to Convince TEAbaggers of Sincerity Ryan F.A.C.T.S. = Falsify Anything to Create a Theocratic System    

The reasons Mitt Romney is losing

September 29, 2012

  There are two major reasons for why Mitt Romney is trailing behind Barack Obama in virtually every poll, regardless of the political leanings of the polling entity, and regardless of the “unskewing” of polls that Fox News claims as proof-positive that Romney is actually crushing Obama in public opinion (on the Bizarro-Reverse world). The […]

September 19, 2012

Republicans continue to claim that they “seldom, if ever” use the filibuster to get their way. Well, today must be “seldom day,” because U.S. Senate Republicans blocked The Veterans Jobs Corps Act that would have created 20,000 jobs for military veterans that would have provided $1 billion over five years to help veterans find work […]

Republicans: “Abortion? Because of rape? That’s a lotta hooey.”

Occasionally, I’m accused by some commenters of “skewing things against Republicans,” or that I’m a “shill for Obama.” So, today, to underscore how wrong those assessments are, and to hopefully drive home the point that my “attacks” against Republicans are neither unwarranted nor untrue, I’m simply going to post some verbatim quotes by Republicans and […]

The Romney qualification fact list

Since Mitt Romney has flat-out refused to discuss or provide any details whatsoever about his Bain tenure and experience, his record as Governor of Massachusetts, or any of the professional and personal financial tactics that he claims are what make him the only ideal presidential candidate in the country, I thought I would provide a […]

More empty GOP rhetoric still creating ZERO JOBS

June 5, 2012

It’s time for a fresh look at the Republicans in Congress and how they’re maintaining that “laser-like focus on jobs, jobs, jobs.” If you go to the Republican Congressional website — http://www.gop.gov — and then click on “Bills,” you’ll see a complete list of all bills currently proposed by any Republican in Congress, you get […]

Not 1 cent in tax increases for the rich, but GOP seeks to slash benefits for disabled workers

November 10, 2011

Republicans on Capitol Hill are looking to cut benefits for federal workers disabled on the job, a budget-trimming move that critics warn could leave many injured civil servants and their families without enough to live on in retirement. With support from senators Joe Lieberman and Susan Collins, the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government […]
