Open Line Friday!

  • by: Colorado Pols

“[Democrats] blamed the Republicans for sabotaging the economy and purposely wanting the economy to do poorly, purposely destroying jobs all for their reelection chances….everybody knows that the Democrats own this destruction. Obama and the Democrats, you own this, kids. You have done this. Your fingerprints are all over it. The unemployment, the home foreclosures, the stock market, the coming inflation, the massive deficits, the subprime mortgage business, the fact that people’s homes are underwater, you did this, there is no question you did it…”

–Rush Limbaugh, yesterday

    1. despite the common trend, is that the two Гјber-crazies that have been heard most about nationally (i.e., Brewer and Walker) have the smallest falling off?

    1. It would be nice to pay off our debt over time.  However, the point of the exercise is to exhibit just how silly the panic over the debt is.

      All we have to do is let tax rate laws expire and return to their previous values and withdraw from Iraq and Afghanistan, and the deficit crisis is solved.

      I wonder just what the Republican “budget negotiators” current criteria are for “no new revenue” – does is include extending the current unsustainable tax rates indefinitely?

        1. I make more than a little money off of the low end skill drivers.  And I suppose a good autonomous system wouldn’t be a bad thing.  But given the proliferation of hackers in the news lately, I would be very nervous about any centralized system running multiples of 1-5 ton objects around.

        1. AT…ataxia-telangiectasia, a rare genetic disease in children that affects the nervous, immune, and other body systems. He really is off doing good.

        2. how with Ellbee gone we haven’t heard a peep from Libertad or Mark G., et al . . . . Hmmmmm???

          (Anybody ever seen a picture of these folks all together at the same time?)

  1. Andre Miller back where he belongs, I just hope the up-coming NBA season doesn’t get screwed up. I barely make it through normal length off-season withdrawal as it is. Please, please no lockout! So many channels, so little to watch with no B-ball!

  2. Packin’ my hat and boots. Off to Texas for a couple days to see my pony. It’ll distract me from being sad about the fact that our state is losing droll today. Arkansas is getting a heckuva good deal on this one.

    Safe travels, droll, and don’t forget all about our funny little square state, eh?

        1. I’m a Chicago Jew and the first time I met a Jew with a southern drawl I thought it was hysterical.  The joke was on me though. There were more Jews fighting for the confederacy, cotton merchants sons, etc., than for the Union in the Civil War.    

  3. …gawd, what a bunch of asshats. The Repubs in the House storm out of budget talks like a little kid denied an action figure at Toys R Us…

    Now they get his full attention thru the Senate, where the last time they “negotiated” with him over the Millionaire Tax Cut, they ended up giving him extended unemployment, a new nuclear treaty, and some other unexpected concessions.

    Wonder how this will end?

    Obama takes lead in debt talks

    President Barack Obama signaled on Friday that he is ready to take over the debt-limit negotiations, summoning Senate leaders to the White House next week as the continuing impasse pushes the country closer to a potential default.

    Obama will meet separately with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Monday. The meetings follow the collapse Thursday of talks between Vice President Joe Biden and congressional leaders.

    The sticking point, as expected, is taxes. Democrats argue that any deal to reduce the deficit and raise the country’s borrowing limit must include new revenues. Republicans say they won’t go there.

    “The president is willing to make tough choices, but he cannot ask the middle class and seniors to bear all the burden for deficit reduction and to sacrifice while millionaires and billionaires and special interests get off the hook,”
    White House press secretary Jay Carney said Friday. That’s not “a fair and balanced approach.”

  4. A street party erupted outside the Stonewall Inn, with celebrants waving rainbow flags and dancing after the historic vote. The Republican-led Senate approved legislation Friday night that will make gay marriage legal in the state. Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo has promised to sign the bill.

      1. In Hawaii they get everything except the word marriage – because the state constitution defines “marriage” as between a man and a woman. So the legislature & Governor did everything within the constraints of the constitution.

        Of course, when they passed it under a Republican Governor, she vetoed it. So it was Republicans & Democrats in the legislature plus a Democratic Governor.
