Holy Chameleon: Just Listen to Some of the Things Coming Out of the Mouths of the Deranged Right-Wingers on this Debt Ceiling Crisis...




Talk about a broken record. From the congressional floor:

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can't pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that 'the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America's debt limit."

Can't the republic partisans do any better than that? The same tired old talking points as they try to hold the American people hostage. This is about saving life on this planet as we know it, and these creeps are out there spouting sound bites from 2010 stump speeches?

Oh wait. I think I got this wrong. That's actually a quote from Senator Barack Obama in 2006 as he explained his opposition to George W. Bush's desire to raise the debt ceiling at that time. Sorry about that. Feel free to disregard.

  1. Postscript: I was aware previously that Obama -- the half far leftist ideologue/half partisan hack -- in 2006 voted against a debt ceiling increase, while now he pushes for such an increase. But I hadn't heard before yesterday that rather astounding quote from him in 2006. What a disingenuous piece of shit!

  2. Yeah, but the difference is that now it's his idea so it must be a good one and if you disagree, you are racist =) Don't these politicians have some guy in charge of continuity? Shouldn't he have someone working for him that would give him a gentle heads up that he gave a speech in 2006 that was the total polar opposite of what he's saying now? What a bunch of losers. Really though.

  3. Well, on the leftist side of things, Obama has the support of a complicit advocacy organization known as the "mainstream" media. That allows him to say one thing one year, and the precise opposite the next year, without hardly any "journalist" so much as questioning him on any of it. I would so like to be allowed to ask questions in the White House press corps just once. But oh well, THAT'LL never be allowed!

  4. And what did you think of the Okama Chameleon reference and video? Okama does tend to come and go, without any real conviction, like the snake reptile that he is and as referenced in the song. Although, truth be told, I think the chameleon may be an amphibian (sp). But regardless: Same difference. Changes his colors and blood type at the drop of a hat, with no real character or conviction behind any of it. OH MY GOD HAH, I'M SO DAMN RACIST OVER HERE!

  6. I'm racist against Irish and Germans, since I can't help but always call them Micks and Krauts.

  7. I think there really is a difference between HOW and WHY someone uses a term such as Mick or Kraut, etc. I mean, we're PEOPLE, not robots. Sheesh. : ) Why can't "absolutists" out there understand that?
