GOPs’ Lie To The Electorate Is Officially Confirmed

In their much ballyhooed “Pledge To America”, Congressional Republicans promised the electorate that they would roll back non-discretionary spending to 2008 levels before TARP and the Stimulus and would therefore, cut $100 billion dollars from the budget in their very first year. As is always the case with the G.O.P., promise made, promise broken.

CNN reports “GOP Budget Chairman Paul Ryan’s committee released its official spending targets for the rest of the 2011 fiscal year, indicating Republicans plan to cut $58 billion in non-security funding, but when their overall spending target is compared to current spending levels for that same time frame, the cuts amount to $32 billion. Either way, the proposed House Republicans’ cuts fall short of the House GOP’s campaign pledge to cut at least $100 billion in non-security federal spending “in the first year alone”.”

Of course, GOP aides declined to specify where even these meager cuts to meet this overall target would come from.

CNN also reports that “Congressional Democrats pounced on the release of the official numbers, highlighting that the GOP was not meeting its own targets”.

“As Republicans conclude their first month in charge of Congress, they have not only failed to create jobs and strengthen the middle class, now they’re breaking the very promises they made to get elected,” said Jesse Ferguson of the House Democrats’ campaign arm.

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) has already unveiled a video which calls out the Republicans for their failure to follow through on their unrealistic campaign promises.

As the saying goes, “Republican promises were meant to be broken”.

PROUD TO BE A REPUBLICAN

(sung to the Lee Greenwood song “God Bless The U.S.A.”)

If tomorrow all my brains were gone
And I was just plant life
With a feeding tube shoved in
Against the wishes of my wife
I’d thank my lucky stars the G.O.P. had their way
And curtailed my family’s freedom
Made them watch me waste away

Boy, I’m proud to be a Republican
Like Huckabee and Romney
And I won’t forget Glenn Beck who cried
Right there on Fox TV
Cuz they’ll gladly stand up next to you
And berate your union pay
I just love those hate filled flames they fan
They hate the U.S.A.

Bachmann hates in Minnesota
Alaska has Sarah P.
Rick Perry down in Texas
They’re in the Tea Party
Not Detroit nor in Boston
Too liberal, black and gay
There’s no soul in any Republican heart
And they love it just that way

Yes, I’m proud to be a Republican
Just like Rush and Hannity
And I love the facts they do deny
Right there on Fox TV
And I’ll gladly stand up next to you
And castigate Tina Fey
Cuz I never doubt those Red State men
No matter what they say

Oh, I’m proud to be a Republican
As I sit here sipping tea
Palin’s “death panels” can’t be denied
They say on Fox TV
Sarah sends a Twitter –  text to you
Six or seven times a day
It’s Republicans that love this land
In our per-ver-ted way!

  1. Blah, blah, blabbity blah. Who can even listen to the GOP liars at this point.

    Thanks for posting this.

  2. Oh but weren’t they just going to start kicking a$$ when they got control- jobs! deficit! jobs! Yeah, right. Rachel M had a good piece last night on what’s been done since they’ve been in charge, pretty much zip, zilch, nada.

  3. Pyramid Scheme

    “New Rule: once the people of Egypt and Tunisia are finished rising up against the corrupt, monied, entrenched powers that have kept them down for so long they must tell us how they did it”-Bill Maher

    Republicans never run for office on the promise of “sticking it” to their hapless constituents: spending cuts are really a pledge to the reactionary billionaires who benefit from the extension of the Bush tax cuts.

  4. From the GOPers and WTFNews play book:

    “The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly – it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over.”–Josph Goebbels, Nazi propaganda minister

    “A lie told often enough becomes the truth.” —Lenin (1870 – 1924)

  5. Rand Paul upsets McConnell

    He has pushed a proposal to cut $500 billion in federal spending over the course of a single year. That has applied pressure to GOP leaders, including Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell, to take a similarly hard approach or risk looking timid to Tea Party activists.

  6. The Tea-Bagging idiots that voted to re-elect these liars were duped.

  7. One of my other fav blogs:

    Professor Chomsky: “Gentlemen, without question our ignorance can be divided into problems and mysteries. When we face a problem, we may not know its solution, but we have insight, increasing knowledge, and an inkling of what we are looking for. When we face a mystery, however, we can only stare in wonder and bewilderment, not knowing what an explanation would even look like. However, there is NO mystery…and there is NO bewilderment to the mere fact that all Republicans are, indeed, fat, tiny-penised, worthless, christian pussies. This much can be linguistically measured.”
