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!

Palin’s Primative Punditry Provokes President

Palin is "over her head"

Sarah Palin suffered a dose of “right back at ya” prescribed by the Democratic National Committee this week. CNN reports that the former Republican vice presidential hopeful (and potential 2012 presidential hopeful) is not letting up in her constant drumbeat of criticism directed about President Obama. But the Democrats, in turn, called her out as well.

After saying Sunday that Arizona’s female Republican governor has more “cojones” than Obama when it comes to immigration and border security, Palin suggested Wednesday night that the 44th president is still trying to figure out his governing philosophy.

Asked about her ongoing narrative that Obama is too weak when it comes to issues like national security and immigration, Palin shared her insights on Fox News Channel (where else?) about why she believes Obama is not doing more to secure the borders. She said,

I think he’s quite complacent, and I think he’s in over his head. And I think he has poor advisers around him. And I think he’s really in flux kind of when it comes to what his governing philosophy actually is. Some of this though is a result of he not having much experience and then a complicit media and maybe some voters who chose to not to allow him to be vetted very closely. It’s a combination of things that’s resulting in a president who’s not taking a strong stand on those things that are the will of the people. Obviously, the will of the people is to enforce the laws that we have on the books.

Think about that quote for a moment. Sarah Palin, the half-term ex-quitting governor of Alaska and current reality television series host believes that President Obama is “in over his head” and was not “vetted very closely”. This, coming from a failed politician who cannot speak in public without resorting to palm printed crib notes. This, coming from an undereducated former candidate who was incapable of coherently answering questions of policy posed by Katie Couric, Charles Gibson or even Fox friendly Bill O’Reilly. If anyone was ever over their head or not vetted properly it was Sarah Palin and the Democrats are now telling the American people. In a response statement e-mailed to CNN, the DNC wrote,

While former half-term governor Palin is certainly an expert in not being vetted, we put our trust in the judgment of the American people who rejected not only the broken policies she and Republicans continue to call for, but also this very kind of childish politics she continues to engage in. What’s been fully vetted and thoroughly rejected by the American people is the failed approach in tone and substance offered by Sarah Palin and her ilk.

Ouch! Take that, Sarah Palin!

I’M OVER MY HEAD II

(sung to the Fleetwood Mac song “Over My Head”)

They say DC is paradise
Before going there, I better think twice
I’m over my head
And it don’t feel nice

Nothing to say when I take that mike
I’m just a clown and yet they just might, think I’m crazy,
It’s such a plight

My thoughts are like a ferris wheel
They’re spinning all the time
Sometimes I can’t help but feel
That I’m losing all of my mind

Over my head Mmmm …

I hope I don’t just grunt and squeal
Perhaps I better mime
Why did I accept this deal
For a measly couple of dimes

They’ll be staring at my backside
I will be losing all of my pride
I’m over my head
And it don’t feel nice

I’m over my head
And it don’t feel nice

I’m over my head
And it don’t feel nice

Sarah Palin Is A “Liar, Liar Pants On Fire”

palinLIAR

It looks like the world will soon know that Pinocchio Palin’s nose is growing. President Obama was not joking last month when he said that if someone spreads lies, falsehoods or misconceptions about the Democratic party’s health care reform bill, he would “call them out” about it. The Democratic National Committee has just released an informative video ad which takes direct aim at Sarah Palin, the former ex-quitting governor of Alaska for doing just that.

The ad exposes each lie that Palin told about health care reform including, but not limited to, her fictitious “death panels.” Jen O’Malley, the executive director of the D.N.C. said, “The more we push back with the truth, the more Sarah Palin and others like her will have to think twice before they promote lies, and the less they’ll be able to derail progress.” Those certainly sound like fighting words. Please watch and enjoy the ad.
