AP is reporting the spineless Dem’s have reached agreement on the Senate healthcare bill. Reportedly, it does not include the Public Option. Reuters on the other hand..reports that Harry Reid has stated the Public Option is not dead. Which is it for Christs sake?
Fuckers…you worthless, ball-less fuckers. I hope you lose in Nevada Harry Reid. By a fucking landslide.
When he went to The Hill Sunday..he did not take them with him, as he only chatted up the Democratic Caucus.
WTF? Did you leave them in your other pants? The Dog ate them?
I know our methods are incredibly different, the Big O and I, but for the love of Christ dude..give those fuckwits a hard time when you make the effort to address their sorry asses. Slap them around a bit. They are the worst set of elected representatives this side of Tom Delay.
Ok, maybe not Hot Tub Tommy, but still..wtf, rip em a new asshole ok? The Rethugs are all on the same page, or nearby it..yet the Dem’s all go off half-cocked and in six different directions.
Fuckers need to be herded like the dumbass bovines they are. The lobbyists have sure friggin figured it out, why the fuck can’t you dude?
He called it a ‘pep talk’. Give me an effin break. Those sumbitches don’t need a pep talk, they need a sharp object rammed under their fingernails, and a set of electrodes attached to their balls.
Good question pal! Many of us have wondered the same damn thing. From TPM muckraker:
In a motion hearing in federal court today, U.S. District Judge John Bates questioned why Congress didn’t simply arrest former White House counsel Harriet Miers and Chief of Staff Josh Bolten after both refused to respond to subpoenas issued by the House Judiciary Committee:
Congress has the authority to hold someone in contempt, U.S. District Judge John Bates said. Did it really need to go to court? House counsel Irvin Nathan said it did.
The Constitution gives Congress the ability to arrest and hold people that are in contempt of a congressional subpoena. It has been interpreted this way since SCOTUS ruled in the 1800’s:
The Supreme Court upheld the practice in 1821, reasoning that without it, Congress “would be exposed to every indignity and interruption that rudeness, caprice or even conspiracy may mediate against it.” The ruling gave Congress the right to imprison uncooperative witnesses for contempt, but for no longer than the duration of the Congress that passed the citation.
This is a no- brainer for me. It shows once again how spineless these Democrats really are. Perhaps BushCo would take them more seriously if they tried it. fuckers..
Well hell, so do most of mine. Probably why I read his stuff. His most recent writeup for RS really rips the Congressional Critters we elected in 06 a new one. He also takes to task many of the anti-war activists..most of whom I know of and get daily or weekly emails from on ‘action’ items for progressives from. This little snippet from page two is a real gem:
Rather than use the vast power they had to end the war, Democrats devoted their energy to making sure that “anti-war activism” became synonymous with “electing Democrats.” Capitalizing on America’s desire to end the war, they hijacked the anti-war movement itself, filling the ranks of peace groups with loyal party hacks. Anti-war organizations essentially became a political tool for the Democrats — one operated from inside the Beltway and devoted primarily to targeting Republicans.
This supposedly grass-roots “anti-war coalition” met regularly on K Street, the very capital of top-down Beltway politics. At the forefront of the groups are Thomas Matzzie and Brad Woodhouse of Americans Against the Escalation in Iraq, the leader of the anti-war lobby. Along with other K Street crusaders, the two have received iconic treatment from The Washington Post and The New York Times, both of which depicted the anti-war warriors as young idealist-progressives in shirtsleeves, riding a mirthful spirit into political combat — changing the world is fun!
But what exactly are these young idealists campaigning for? At its most recent meeting, the group eerily echoed the Reid-Pelosi “squeezed for time” mantra: Retreat from any attempt to end the war and focus on electing Democrats. “There was a lot of agreement that we can draw distinctions between anti-war Democrats and pro-war Republicans,” a spokeswoman for Americans Against the Escalation in Iraq announced.
Just made my friggin Saturday to read that entire piece. If you don’t mind getting pissed off, its a great read.
Kiss my rotund ass you bag of batshit bastards. I suppose you didn’t have a problem with the swiftboaters going after Kerry?? That one got a pass? How about when they went after Vietnam Vet Max Cleland? That one ok too you fools?
So..A hearty “Fuck you” the stupid 22 Dems who voted against the MoveOn ad regarding Petraeus the lapdog. Clinton and Dodd voted no on that bullshit and frankly I have more respect for them now than at any time prior to this ridiculous vote on the Senate floor today to condemn a paid for ad by a third party group.
All is fair in love and politics..so if the swiftboaters can use their smarmy tactics…no one has a right to bitch about the MoveOn ad..period. You bunch of spineless pricks. Here is the list of who voted:
