Yukon, are you implying that JLM and Cliffy are wise? That is what you seem to imply, you seem to be saying that they are wise but don’t keep their mouths shut.
Democrats must be ruthless and merciless in cutting spending; the deficit monster must be slain at all cost. It may cost Democrats control of the Senate and the House (people generally don’t like it when governments cut spending). But that is not too big a price to pay to balance the budget.
A judicious combination of spending cuts and tax increases is the only way to balance the budget.
Just curious about all the pork added onto the stimulus bill's by way of earmarks.
If as sjp says that the dems are so fiscally prudent how in a democrat held house and senate did this pork get into said stimulus?
"We forgot to mention Colin Powell, seems he is trying to get back in the good graces of the Republican party. Challenging Rush Limbaugh. I still cannot believe that anyone could consider Rush Limbaugh as leader of the party."Quote has been trimmed, See full post:
Colin Powell's most enduring legacy is standing in front of those maps of Iraq and pointing to all the places Saddam Hussain was supposed to have hidden weapons of mass destruction. He did that with appropriate glee and loyalty to the Bush Administration, in which he served as Secretary of State and Security Advisor. All his seemingly futile efforts are in order to distance himself from the President he pledged alligence to but had no trouble to stab in the back, when the opportunity was ripe to support a charismatic punk for nothing but (half) race.
Then the unthinkable happened: a charismatic half-breed punk who chose to be black in spite that anything black in his life dropped him like yesterday's garbage, became the nomineee of the Presidency. He knew what he was doing: if you are black you are immune to criticism, because all those who dare to criticize you are RACISTS.
As one half-breed to another what else could Powell do?
What else? Give up principles as weak-spined and calculating people usually...
Colin collapsed under the politically correct weight of reverse racism.
Limbaugh had the spine and character to stick by what he believes in.
I think Limbaugh is a blow hard but the Obama Administration sure gives him a lot of attention.
