The Tea Party Terrorists Awards 2011

Courtesy of The Media Research Center.

Those people most hated by the Left because they want to cut government bloat and government spending.

The Tea Partiers. Those Nazi racist terrorists who will explode and kill you all if given a chance! 🙂

“We don’t have proof yet that this was political, but the odds are that it was. She’s been the target of violence before….Her father says that ‘the whole Tea Party’ was her enemy. And yes, she was on Sarah Palin’s infamous ‘crosshairs’ list. Just yesterday, Ezra Klein remarked that opposition to health reform was getting scary. Actually, it’s been scary for quite a while, in a way that already reminded many of us of the climate that preceded the Oklahoma City bombing….Violent acts are what happen when you create a climate of hate. And it’s long past time for the GOP’s leaders to take a stand against the hate-mongers.” -Paul Krugman on Gabrielle Giffords 3:22pm ET January 8  less than 2 hours after the shooting.

You remember, Obama came to Tucson and talked about a “New Tone” and “Civility” and the left ignored it immediately, they just expect everyone else to follow it — aka shut up and stop bitching at us.

Salon’s Joan Walsh: “These people, the Tea Partiers and their friends and their enablers and their corporate friends like Dick Armey, they have created this shrieking on the right….They’re paying the lowest taxes in 50 years — more than 50 years, more than my lifetime — and they are still complaining. And some of them aren’t complaining. There are some good business people who know this game of chicken, in particular, is deadly and it’s wrong and it’s hostage-taking. And you shouldn’t negotiate with hostage-takers.”

Host Chris Matthews: “I agree with you. I agree with you. I agree. It’s terrorism.” — MSNBC’s Hardball, July 5.

Nope, No Media Bias here…And it’s not all about Taxes, Joan, CUT SPENDING! something a liberal isn’t capable of.

“You know what they say: Never negotiate with terrorists. It only encourages them. These last few months, much of the country has watched in horror as the Tea Party Republicans have waged jihad on the American people….For now, the Tea Party Republicans can put aside their suicide vests. But rest assured: They’ll have them on again soon enough.”New York Times columnist Joe Nocera, August 2.
Are we seeing a pattern of “talking points” here among the “fair” and “balanced” left wing media? 🙂
“If sane Republicans do not stand up to this Hezbollah faction in their midst, the Tea Party will take the GOP on a suicide mission.”New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, July 27.
Yes, sir, we are.
“There’s a nihilist caucus which is, ‘Listen, we want to burn the place down.’ I mean, they’re not, they’ve strapped explosives to the Capitol and they think they are immune from it. The Tea Party caucus wants this crisis, and do we want to do this again six months from now?”— Bloomberg columnist and former Time reporter Margaret Carlson on Inside Washington, July 29.
But you really want to see the hate, call their messiah, Barack Hussein Obama a “socialist” and watch the raptor claws and the dripping contempt come out.

Newsweek editor-in-chief Tina Brown: “I think they’re the suicide bombers in all of this.” — MSNBC’s Morning Joe, July 6.

No groupthink going on here!!

And now the obligatory Obamagasm…

“Can we just enjoy Obama for a moment? Before the policy choices have to be weighed and the hard decisions have to be made, can we just take a month or two to contemplate him the way we might contemplate a painting by Vermeer or a guitar lick by the early-seventies Rolling Stones or a Peyton Manning pass or any other astounding, ecstatic human achievement? Because twenty years from now, we’re going to look back on this time as a glorious idyll in American politics, with a confident, intelligent, fascinating president riding the surge of his prodigious talents from triumph to triumph….’I am large, I contain multitudes,’ Walt Whitman wrote, and Obama lives that lyrical prophecy….Barack Obama is developing into what Hegel called a ‘world-historical soul,’ an embodiment of the spirit of the times. He is what we hope we can be.” — Esquire’s Stephen Marche in a column for the magazine’s August 2011 issue: “How Can We Not Love Obama? Because Like It or Not, He Is All of Us.”
Oh, he is the embodiment of his time. That’s the problem. That’s why the Democrats are running a “Vote for Me! The other guy’s an extremist asshole!” campaign.
And we end with Liberal Hyperbole for a “Journalist”:
“We thought we’d bring you up to date on those protesters, the Occupy Wall Street movement. As of tonight, it has spread to more than 250 American cities, more than a thousand countries — every continent but Antarctica.”— Diane Sawyer on ABC’s World News, October 10. On a later edition, Sawyer corrected her still-absurd hype: “…more than a thousand cities around the world.”
Today, we saw America’s money trouble meet a reality, a human reality, as teachers, nurses, tens of thousands of state workers took to the streets in this country protesting cuts by the governors, saying to these governors, a promise is a promise. One lawmaker looked out at the crowds gathered in the Wisconsin capital today and said it’s like Cairo moved to Madison.” — Diane Sawyer opening ABC’s World News, February 17.
Are they saying that now?  Nope. They are largely ignoring the stories of  ACTUAL rape, murder, and violence amongst the Occupiers because it doesn’t fit the liberal meme.
And that folks is our award show for the year and it didn’t run over by 3 hours with self-congratulatory speeches but we did have a lot of hot air…:)
“This week: people power making history. A revolt in the Midwest and a revolution sweeping across the Middle East….Populist frustration is boiling over this week — as we’ve said, not just in the Middle East, but in the middle of this country as well.”
— ABC’s Christiane Amanpour opening This Week, February 20
But Tea Parties are the violent, racist, terrorists….
Good Night. Sleep tight. Don’t let the Liberal bed bugs bite! 🙂

It’s the Spending, Stupid!

Ezra Klein recently posted a New York Times graphic supporting his view that the deficit is primarily the fault of former President Bush and his predecessors, rather than President Obama. Interestingly, he makes no attempt to claim that Obama’s policies have reduced the deficit, just that Obama’s deficit increases were smaller than Bush’s.

Leave aside for a moment the fact that Bush’s entire eight-year record is being compared to policies enacted during Obama’s first two and a half years. The fundamental flaw in the New York Times graphic is that it assumes that a president’s fiscal policy is confined to “new” policies enacted under his watch. Every year, the president proposes a budget that contains a mix of new policies and old policies. The result is a comprehensive vision of what federal tax and spending policy ought to be. A president who simply continues the fiscal policy he inherits must bear his share of responsibility for its consequences.

A prime example of this is the “Bush tax cuts,” which the New York Times graphic charges solely to President Bush, conveniently ignoring the fact that President Obama supports making most of the cuts permanent and signed into law a two-year extension of all of them. President Bush also signed a new Medicare drug benefit into law. But President Obama didn’t repeal this new spending, he expanded it.

Below is a graphic that focuses on the results of fiscal policy, not simply on adjustments made on the margins of fiscal policy. If anything, the analysis is overly generous to President Obama because: (1) it assigns full responsibility for Fiscal Year 2009 to President Bush, despite the enactment by Obama of the stimulus, higher domestic appropriations and an expansion of TARP spending during that year; and (2) it gives Obama credit for the policies he intends to enact for the rest of his presidency, since we cannot judge his actual future record. The graphic compares the records of these two presidents based on the deficits, revenues and spending incurred by the federal government on their watch, expressed as a percentage of GDP.

The results show one surprise — thanks in part to the recession and tax stimulus measures which have temporarily lowered federal revenues, Bush and Obama tax policies yield virtually the same amount of revenues on average. But the real story is the comparison of spending. Obama’s policies result in historically high spending as a share of the economy, which in turn results in historically high deficits.

To President Obama’s credit, he has begun to embrace the need for a change in direction, though he was dragged there kicking and screaming by Republicans and continues to insist that significant spending cuts be linked to higher taxes. In contrast, Bush’s initiatives were opposed at every turn by congressional Democrats, who insisted on even higher spending.(DC)

Bush was wrong. Obama IS wrong. Period.

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising  America ‘s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure.  It is a sign that the US Government can not pay its own bills.  It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies.  Increasing  America ‘s debt weakens us domestically and internationally.  Leadership means that, “the buck stops here.’  Instead,  Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren.   America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006

Mind you, he only said it to bash Bush, not because he had any convictions on the matter. But it is instructive in how Liberals will say anything to gain power and will say anything not to cede any power thy get.

Political Cartoon

The Scott Heard Around the World!

Kryten From “Red Dwarf”: <<Engage Gloat Mode>>

The people of Massachusetts sent a message to an oppressive government yet again.

Democrats from all over Massachusetts sent a message to Washington D.C last night, they voted for a Republican.

DEMOCRATS IN MASSACHUSETTS VOTED FOR A REPUBLICAN!!  🙂

Scott Brown, the pick-up driving (since Obama made fun of that last Sunday)  Republican is now the Senator-Elect.

And it wasn’t even close.

It was a Smackdown.

But were the Democrats in Washington D.C. and the Liberal Intelligentsia listening?

I doubt it.

Rep. Chris Van Hollen of Maryland, head of the House Democrats’ campaign effort, said Coakley’s loss won’t deter his colleagues from continuing to blame the previous administration.

“President George W. Bush and House Republicans drove our economy into a ditch and tried to run away from the accident,” he said. “President Obama and congressional Democrats have been focused repairing the damage to our economy.” (MSNBC)

So it’s George W. Bush’s Fault! 🙂

Ezra Klein on the “Rachael Maddow Show” on MSNBC- He wasn’t sympathetic to the “exhaustion” he was hearing from some on Capital Hill because they were “tired of Town halls. Tired of angry constituents. Tired of fighting with Republicans…and compromising…”

He and the Host (a Former Hate Air America leftist) both were commiserating that The Democrats needed to pass Health Care Reform even more now than ever!

That the they’d spent the last year on this and to come up with nothing means they failed and to go to the voters in November as a failure would hurt them greatly.

Which to me says, they didn’t get the message.

If you pass Health Care Reform now, as it is, You’ll have a “Political Jonestown” (Patt Cadell, Democratic Pollster On “Sean Hannity” earlier in the day) on your hand in November.

Drink this Kool-Aid, it’s toxic.

Just ask the Democrats in Massachusetts I saw on FOX  (yes they were on FOX) and there was a room of about 25 of them. Every single one of them voted for Obama. Only 2 Voted for the Democrat, Martha Coakley.

They said things like “sending a message to Washington”  about their “arrogance”  “spending” and “tired of the one party rule”.

One day shy of the first anniversary of Obama’s swearing-in, the election played out amid a backdrop of animosity and resentment from voters over persistently high unemployment, Wall Street bailouts, exploding federal budget deficits and partisan wrangling over health care.

“I voted for Obama because I wanted change. … I thought he’d bring it to us, but I just don’t like the direction that he’s heading,” said John Triolo, 38, a registered independent who voted in Fitchburg.
He said his frustrations, including what he considered the too-quick pace of health care legislation, led him to vote for Brown.
(MSNBC)

And these are DEMOCRATS in MASSACHUSETTS!

Where they have had Universal Health Care since 2007 (which is also causing premiums to go up!)

Yikes!!!

But the real story is the Independents. Like me.

We have spoken!

Thank you very much. I’ll bet they can hear all this cheering down in Washington, D.C.

And I hope they’re paying close attention, because tonight the independent voice of Massachusetts has spoken.

From the Berkshires to Boston, from Springfield to Cape Cod, the voters of this Commonwealth defied the odds and the experts. And tonight, the independent majority has delivered a great victory.

I thank the people of Massachusetts for electing me as your next United States senator.

Most of all, I will remember that while the honor is mine, this Senate seat belongs to no one person and no political party – and as I have said before, and you said loud and clear today, it is the people’s seat.–Senator-Elect Scott Brown

And the Republicans better beware of us too!

But first be vigilant on the Far-Left. There are still many who want to cram the THE AGENDA down regardless.

They want to ignore last night. Say it doesn’t matter. That they must press on.

Soldier on to the end.

Would you like some Kool-Aid to quench your thirst for power?

They aren’t going to give up this easily.

So They need be reminded constantly through November that “We are Not Amused” as Queen Victoria famously said.

Newsweek Column “The Gaggle”:  To their credit, Washington Democrats haven’t given up. The White House is weighing a plan to pass the Senate bill immediately through the House, which would, with Obama’s signature, make it law automatically without Scott Brown or anyone else in the Senate getting another crack at it. Then the Democrats would use “reconciliation” budget rules to fix problems in the Senate version with 51 votes, per the agreement Obama has been working on for the last couple of weeks. This is a messy approach but doable.

The impediment is the herd-like habits of professional politicians. So-called “Blue Dog” Democrats from moderate-to-conservative districts are desperate to get right with their mad-as-hell constituents. But killing health care now won’t help these vacillating members. Those who have already voted for it will get attacked this fall as tax-and-spend liberals. That’s inevitable. But if they now vote against it, they’ll get attacked as tax-and-spend liberal flip-floppers whose party can’t deliver for the American people — a more searing indictment. With a bill, at least Obama and the Democrats could play some offense, charging that Republicans side with the insurance companies against working people facing soaring premiums, a costly “donut hole” on drugs and the threat of medical bankruptcy.

So it’s not much of a choice, is it? Any moderate House Democrat with half a brain should vote for the Senate bill, which is much more to their liking than the House bill that many of them supported in November. Of course it’s the half a brain part that’s a cause of worry. Some of these guys are as politically clueless as Martha Coakley.

Muddling through this period (and that’s the very best that can be hoped for) requires that the President and congressional leaders accept the message of Massachusetts–that voters are mighty PO’d–without succumbing to the GOP’s interpretation of it as a mandate for No Change.

Obama plans to spend most of the year in Campaign Mode (ed: Campaign Mode is not Leadership!), not Congressional Sausage Maker Mode. That will help. So will proving that Washington can still deliver something big for the American people.

So what’s missing in this analysis is staring her right in the face: INDEPENDENTS.

But, before the Senate crammed down the Health Care Bill on Christmas Eve, had anyone ever even heard of Scott Brown??

He went from zero to hero in less than 3 weeks!

But partisanship has become so vitriolic and so black-and-white that they miss the real point.

And I think the Democrats will continue to miss it; and I hope the Republicans don’t miss it either.

This wasn’t really their victory.

It was the People’s Victory.

It’s the Independents, Stupid! 🙂

CBS: Registered Democrats outnumber registered Republicans three-to-one in Massachusetts, yet Brown was able to win because independents broke heavily in his favor. President Obama’s approval rating among independents has fallen to 40 percent in the latest CBS News poll, and 64 percent of them say the country is on the wrong track. Two in three, meanwhile, disapprove of the way the Democrat-dominated Congress is handling its job.

If they want to limit their losses in the midterms, Democrats must find some way to win at least some of these independents back. That could be a challenge, because their party is now widely associated with the unpopular government bailouts, as well as federal spending levels that have helped create an anti-incumbent mood. Expect to see Democratic lawmakers ratchet up their rhetoric on issues like Wall Street bonuses in the coming months in an effort to co-opt the populist mantle that has been driving many independents into the waiting arms of the GOP.

And Expect me to call them on it. Republican or Democrat.

I’m an Independent, Hear Me Roar! 🙂
