The Mendacious Harry Reid Kills a Debt Ceiling Deal, Goes on Vacation

The Mendacious Harry Reid Kills a Debt Ceiling Deal, Goes on Vacation

Senate Democrat Harry Reid, whose party controls all the scheduling for the Senate, had this to say yesterday: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Thursday said House Republicans’ pending “cut, cap and balance” proposal is among the worst pieces of legislation to appear on the floor in Senate history. … “I think this piece […]

Cut, Cap, and Compromise

The White House has chosen to take the low road today in the debt ceiling debate: [blackbirdpie url="http://twitter.com/#!/jaketapper/status/93015804483866625"]   Not only was it a low-class thing to say, it’s also an outright lie. The GOP’s “Cut, Cap, and Balance” plan isn’t a dodge or a duck (or a dip, dive, or dodge either). I honestly don’t know if Tapper challenged his […]

I’m no professional poker player, but I’m pretty sure that if I saw someone throw a hissy fit that ends in “Don’t call my bluff” at a table, I’d know two things: He’s bluffing. He’s about to get his bluff called by everyone at the table. That’s where we sit right now with the debt […]

I don’t know how I managed to get through the first half of Episode 102 and not use the phrase “A pox on both their houses”. I think the entire budget/debt ceiling debate has gone so far past silly that it’s looped around back into silly again. The Democrats have no interest in putting a […]

What a wonderful representative for the city of New Orleans former Mayor Ray Nagin turned out to be, huh? Not only did he botch the city’s response before, during, and after Hurrican Katrina about as badly as it could have been botched, but he’s also one heck of a conspiracy theorist. The former mayor of […]

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz Doesn't Own This Economy, and We Shouldn't Let Her Claim It.

Conservatives have made a lot of hay this past week over DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s contention that Democrats now “own the economy” and for good reason. Democrats have owned the economy for quite a few years as its been Democrats whose Brobdingnagian budgets have acted as a fairly steady brake on the economy. It was […]

So Anthony Weiner took the long walk to the microphone today and resigned his position as member of the House of Representatives. If you haven’t been following the story, well, God bless you. You’ve missed a real mess — a tale of arrogance, sex, a porn actress, some young girls, lies, politics, more lies, and […]

In my last post, I committed an act of wanton and premeditated mathematics upon Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’ proud contention that Democrats have, with trillions of dollars of our money, created 2.1 million jobs in 2 1/2 years. Then I got to thinking a bit more about those numbers. Sure, it’s sheer lunacy to spend more than […]

I’m sure Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Chair of the Democratic National Committee, thinks she’s super-clever, but I don’t think the “Be thankful we got that foul Bush economy turned around” strategy is going to be a big winner in 2012. What’s that? You think I’m wildly exaggerating? You don’t believe that she of the ego large enough […]

It’s not every day you see a handful of Senators try to demagogue themselves right out of office, but today appears to be that day. Sen. Benjamin L. Cardin was one of five Senate Democrats — all of whom are up for reelection next year — to sign a letter to Vice President Joe Biden […]
