Or possibly of the year. Long-time BMGer centralmassdad tells it like it is. Some language NSFW.
This is a good reason
why, over the last 9 years or so, I have gone from being a Republican-leaning independent to an independent that has nothing at all but contempt for Republicans.
It is your collective ability to stick your head so very far up your ass, as is nicely demonstrated by this little vignette.
Bush started the GM bailouts, and got some short term loans through the lame duck Congress. Then, once Republicans realized that Obama would benefit from the program, they opposed it, which meant a closer call for the companies, which all did some rather major cost-cutting as a result, and eventually wound up using the bankruptcy system because the Republicans deadlocked the government. Indeed, these very two guys
Now, Republicans want to support the bailouts, but blame the administration for not getting more? They want to cut Medicare, unless Democrats can be seen to have made a cut, and then they support it? They support Medicare, absolutely and unconditionally, for people who are 66, but if someone who is 65 gets those benefits, it would be a Stalinist gulag?
It is as if I borrowed your car, and promised not to crash it, and you took it back and crashed it, deliberately, and then said: well, you said it would crash. Words mean things..
In 2012 Republicans are either stupid or utterly unscrupulous liars. They certainly are no longer “conservative” except to the extent that conservative means “thinks hurricanes are God’s punishment for gay marriage.”
You can buy all the bullshit you want from the Limbaugh show, if you are stupid enough to eat that shit. But don’t come here and pretend it is a “conservative” viewpoint. It isn’t. It is idiocy, and idiocy is not a viewpoint. Idiocy is market share for Limbaugh, and little more.centralmassdad @ Thu 30 Aug 5:48 PM
