Expecting Fiscal Responsibility from a Republican Administration: The Triumph of Hope Over Experience

George Will tells what should be a joke about Republicans and fiscal responsibility:

Why, then, should we expect Romney to reverse Republican complicity? Because by embracing Paul Ryan, Romney embraced Ryan’s emphasis on the entitlement state’s moral as well as financial costs.

There are not many “closing arguments” for Romney less persuasive than this one. Will acknowledges that decades of experience teach us that Republican administrations are not normally fiscally responsible and have contributed greatly to the expansion of entitlements, but now he thinks we should expect fiscal responsibility from a Romney administration because Romney has “embraced” Paul Ryan. This is the same Paul Ryan whose record is littered with votes in favor of every major Bush-era piece of legislation, including several that added significantly to the debt and one in particular that added trillions more to the government’s unfunded liabilities.

Ryan was complicit in the largest expansion of the welfare state in a generation when he voted for Medicare Part D, and it was done entirely at the expense of future generations. This is a perfect example of “piling up public debt that binds unconsenting future generations to finance current consumption.” When it comes to “mugging our descendants,” the members of Congress responsible for passing Medicare Part D take first prize. If this degrades our political system, Ryan was on the side of degradation until very recently.

Before he became a fiscal conservative hero in the last two years, Ryan was a typical Bush-era Republican with all of the considerable baggage that goes with it. The idea that we can trust a Romney administration to be better fiscal stewards than most of their Republican predecessors is to ignore everything we know about how Republicans typically act once in power. Assuming that Ryan’s presence in that administration is some sort of guarantee of fiscal responsibility is simply the triumph of hope over experience.

Obama does not have a aversion to wealthy people. He just doesn't want to keep handing them money.
He most certainly does, a**hole.
Whose money is it anyway? He didn't earn it. Net income is NOT a gift from the government and we don't exist by the beneficence of Obama.

That's almost as bad as expecting fiscal responsibility from the party that survives on pissing money away on people who'll never pay it back.

Looks like you are the one that is money hungry,but don't want to work for it, little Lily.
You sound like you are jealous that Mitt has money. Well, little lady, he didn't rob anyone for it, or stole it. Like a good born here American does, he worked hard for what he has made. Mitt don't live off of something as stupid as Obama Care ..welfare to work.. not to work act, and he don't want anyone in the US to live that way either. You don't want Romeny to win, because he will get your lazy ass a job, and you'll be out of the house to work. LOL

Subject: Why do Taiwanese want to recommend President Obama to the U.S. President re-election? &#65288;evidence and photo are in here&#65289;


I am Taiwanese from Taiwan, according to Japan recorded the history of Taiwan in 1592, Taiwan was a Nation which named "Takasago Nation ", and her people used the Cyrillic, that is Taiwanese language at present, please see the evidence which Taiwanese sign the trade contract with Chinese:
Thus proved that Taiwanese are Slav, not Chinese, please see my photo:
Taiwanese “Takasago Nation “was destroyed by Chinese in 1662, thus Chinese occupied Taiwan, therefore, Taiwanese are not Chinese!
The United States transported the people of the Republic of China to Taiwan after the World War II.
The Republic of China is the evil, she regards the trusteeship residents Taiwanese as her slaves, and she continuously exploits and suppresses Taiwanese and condemns Taiwanese property by her evil laws no matter how Taiwanese efforts to work hard, please see the evidence:
The Republic of China lets her people become the rich, and Taiwanese yet become the permanent poor.

The evil of the Republic of China officers collaborated with businessman, causing the tragedy which Taiwan mountain avalanched to the stream of soil and stone, and many Taiwanese were buried alive by the stream of soil and stone, please see the evidence:
The evil of the Republic of China shot many Taiwanese who advocated “The Democratic of Taiwan” to genocide, all sufferers were younger men, please see the evidence:

The evil of the Republic of China fabricates the history of Taiwan to educate Taiwanese that Taiwanese come from China, and she made an attempt on destroying Taiwanese race and culture to occupy Taiwan.
The United States made the biggest disaster to Taiwanese, so the United States must assume moral responsibility to Taiwanese and repatriate the Republic of China and her people to China and help Taiwanese to restore “The Democratic of Taiwan” for the world peace!

When the United States fostered the Republic of China in Taiwan after the World War II, she has already buried the crisis of the World War &#8546;, that is the American crisis in the future!

Now, 192 the House of Representatives and 45 Federal Senators signed the petition to threat the President Obama for sale F-CD fighters to the Republic of China, and the Republican candidate Mitt Romney has agreed to sell F-CD fighters to the Republic of China, they intentionally make the international clash to set off the World War for protecting the Republic of China, please see the evidence:

The U.S. people will face to the world war for defending America, and they will lose their family.
Dare the U.S. electors support Republican candidate Mitt Romney and those politicians for the war?

War is an arch-criminal of economy recession, because I see a truth that the Iraq war brought the economy recession to the United States and the world.
If American voters hope to own the prosperous economy, American voters should support the President Obama for re-election and support Congressmen who must have the same conception with the President Obama and help the President Obama to finish policy, let them solve to terminate the Republic of China to rule Taiwan trusteeship, and help Taiwanese to restore “The Democratic of Taiwan” by foreign forces, and completely conclude the long struggle of China's internal affairs with peace method for bringing the real world peace, thus, the United States will become the prosperous economic Leader in the world again, and solve all problems including the debt and unemployment of the United States.

Thank you for your reading.
Welcome to forward for the world peace.

God bless President Obama to the U.S. President re-election for the world peace.

He's a nasty POS that one is and whoever briefed him on today's version of Benghazi was way off the time line.

After going on and on about videos from inside the consulate and from drones, Scheiffer asked him if he'd actually seen the videos and nearly sht himself before answering NO and the quickly trying to move on.

He's chairman of the Senate committee for Armed Services and hasn't seen the videos??? Attack occurred on 9/11 today is 10/28__WTF has he been doing?

Hey stupid! It's not Obama's policies that have failed it's the radical right in the GOP that are blocking any kind of legislation that would put people to work and improve the economy. The worst part is that they're doing it on purpose. A prime example is the American Jobs Act which according to several non partisan sources would have had a positive effect on both jobs and the economy;
–Moody’s Analytics estimated the American Jobs Act would create 1.9 million jobs and add two percent to gross domestic product.
–The Economic Policy Institute estimated it would create 2.6 million jobs and protect an addition 1.6 million existing jobs.
–Macroeconomic Advisers predicted it would create 2.1 million jobs and boost GDP by 1.5 percent.
–Goldman Sachs estimated it would add 1.5 percent to GDP.
But the Republicans true to their blood oath to obstruct anything that could help the American people blocked it at every turn.
Democrat Jon Tester was one of two Democrats who sided with Republicans stating:

"We shouldn’t be sending billions of dollars in bailout aid to states. And I can’t support tax gimmicks that do little to create jobs and fail to address a much bigger underlying problem: The need for a big, broad and bipartisan plan to cut the deficit and to make sure we can pay our bills and rebuild our economy.

"Moving forward, we need to focus on investing in the things that create jobs in this country: Our critical infrastructure, education, and research and development. We need significant but responsible cuts to government spending. We need a wholesale reform of our tax code to make sure that millionaires and corporations pay their fair share, and to make taxes more fair for working families. And we need to ensure that critical initiatives like Social Security and Medicare are built to last, so they can benefit our kids and grandkids.

"This measure does none of those things. It is an expensive, temporary fix to a problem that needs a big, long-term solution. And I look forward to working together, putting politics aside, to find a solution that’s right for Montana and the nation."

...Maybe that's why the Republicans voted against the American Jobs Act too.

Tester sounds just like a Republican, actually. He's probably just one of many moderate Democrats who could vote for Romney.

If you think you've heard it all, how about this?
The Democrats are already putting together their excuses for Obama getting thrown out of the White House. The early excuse they're putting out is the hurricane coming to the northeast will cause Obama to lose the election.
What will they think of next?
... stay tuned. The excuses are just beginning.

Did Obama Refuse To Aid Our Men In Benghazi?

Red State ^| October 27, 2012 | streiff

In the month and a half since our consulate in Benghazi was sacked and our ambassador and three other staffers killed the Obama regime is no closer to presenting a coherent, truthful narrative of what happened before, during, and after the incident than it was when it uttered its first deliberate lies and misdirections on September 12. Right now we are being treated to the vision of the highest level of the ongoing criminal enterprise that governs us playing the equivalent of a game of musical chairs.
