Whip me, beat me, take away my Big Green Egg grill... Stop the presses...

Is Obama finally coming to his senses? Is he going to prove to be a democrat after all? rut roh... He's invoking the Cat Food Commission...

If he gets through this with an iron clad promise to keep SS, Medicare and Medicaid -- no weasling out -- I will cook and eat a crow that someone sends me and post the pics on this blog and face book. Has he found spine enough to stand up to His Majesty Mitch?

I'm off the hook... he doesn't expect the final outcome to look like what he's laid out today.The flip side of that is that once again, he's allowing the crazies to rip the country even farther to the right and make the formerly-far-right Simpson-Bowles Tag Team the "new center."

If Republicorp Obama Cared a Wit About Deficits (Updated obviously)

You see, the growing surplus deficit exists because taxes are too high low and government is charging more less than it needs. The people of America My Base The base I will never win over no matter how hard I try , the rich and corporations, have been overcharged undercharged, and on their behalf, I am here asking for a refund redo.

from Dubya's Obama's 1st 2nd 1st SOTU address (or his address today)

Please shoot me if I ever understand the failure of Tea Baggers Obama to understand the basics of cause and effect what it means to be a true Democrat: A Liberal.

So today... I sit here dreading obama's upcoming address. Will it be the near inevitable coup de grace to the democratic party? Or, as we saw after the first republicorp Depression, will the party rise from the ashes to undertake the rebuilding of the destruction they and their ally Obama have wrought? Will we finally see evidence of a spine from Mr I-can't-have-gridlock-I-have-to-govern? Or will he continue along that path, willingly settling for ONLY those options the republicorp legislation Czar, Mitch McConnell allows?

I hear so much talk of the possible political ramifications of whatever Obama happens to do or say, and NO talk about what's truly good for the country. In the last hours before Obama's last capitulation, the compromise that met republicorp halfway on their side of their line, Former president Karl Rove come out with the statement that they needed to avoid a shut down as having one would increase Obama's chances of re-election (as if that would be a bad thing for their goals). Not ONE single solitary fucking word about what would be good for the country; that a shut down would be bad, not (just) for republicorp, but for the country... people.

Fuck the political. Try for a change to do what's right. And by that, I don't mean do what's right wing.

I hear so much talk about how courageous Paul Rand Ryan is, by trashing medicare, fucking future generations to save them from crushing government debt by assuring them a crushing personal debt due to health care costs. I doesn't take courage to be a heartless sociopath. It takes a near unimaginable depth of mean spiritedness.

Will the baggers finally learn where their actions, supporting these wanna-be-serial killers, are taking them? Will they stop before frauds like Joe "unemployment is unconstitutional" Miller, Sharon "never mind that my husband and I live on government pensions/payments, we need to do away with them (for all of you)" Angle, Christine "I'm not a witch, I'm a professional candidate" O'Donnell, and whoever they intend to find to the right of Orrin Hatch... These are your "champions?"

More to my point today, when will Obama loyalists finally realize how insane it is to think about finding common ground with these people? The idea that we have a president who talks of finding "things we can all agree on," when the other side is crazy... Wall Street needs our retirement money. We must answer the call.

From the Folks Who Brought You Ketchup as a Vegetable

We now have the claim of "saving Medicare" by destroying it.

So is I live to be 90 like my mother, I will be given vouchers to go buy my health insurance. From the same companies that were orgasmic to turn over any responsibility for old people over to the government.

Google it yourself. It's all included in Budget Czar Paul Ryan's latest horror publication. Makes me wonder what the fuck is in the water in Wisconsin.

I was chastised earlier for saying this a few days ago, but I repeat:

To vote for these crazies you need to be a rock dwelling, self loathing... OK, I'll pull back on the rage-aholic label, but it's only by willful ignorance that anyone with access to any means of obtaining public information wouldn't know what these fuckers are up to. This is not conservatism. This is Reaganism: The destruction of ALL social safety net programs. And it's never been a secret. If you aren't old enough to remember what Reagan was really like, if you believe the historical Republicorp-re-write, Go find Rush's claim that "Roosevelt is dead. His policies are still here, but we're doing something about that."

If you want an iron-clad guarantee that the quality of your life will go to hell in an imitation plastic handbag, by all fucking means, vote Republicorp.

Don't accuse me of defending Obama; he's the asshole who thinks there's some benefit to finding common ground with the authors of this insanity, and thus fucking us. I'm just thrilled beyond ecstasy that he's meeting with congressional leaders on all this budget shit. After that great two-for-one deal on rich fuck tax cuts for unemployment and the slashing of social security funding he got us, how the fuck can we lose. Just like those tax cuts, I'm sure whatever capitulations he gives in trade for the bones that he hopes will make us believe he's on our side... he'll fight over in 2012.

I would agree with Dwight Eisenhower who declared that the killing of Social Security would be the death of Republicorp, but I don't think he could ave conceived of an asshole like Obama. With him on their side, there's no telling what Republicorp can destroy.
