I Think Sometimes We are Truly a Stupid Movement

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, of gratefulness and rejoicing, I’m not going to rant too much, or insult people’s intelligence, or insinuate that some people’s entire political existence is a complete waste of time and money. Nor will I question many of the conservative donors’ political acumen and how they invest hundreds of millions in pointless efforts. I will even restrain myself from completely insulting people who think robo calls or door literature drops or bus tours are meaningful. In. Any. Way.

You see, I have a little theory on why we as a movement, and Republicans lose: because we’re stupid. No, I take that back. We could actually stand to be a little more stupid and do the obvious. I think we sometimes are too smart for our own good. We think if we come up with some twist of phrase or some great idea the masses will rise up and we will be victorious. Folks, there is no silver bullet in politics. You can’t blow up the Death Star with one amazing shot and think you’ve won because the Empire never dies and it always strikes back....

Do believe I've asked this before? What is an 'Unfunded Tax Cut'? Just answer that question?
I said the CBO said 10% of the blame on Obama.

When the payroll tax cut was last extended, both Republicans & Democrats wanted to extend it, Yet they were arguing about how to pay for it.

"Pay for it" is funding.

When you just issue tax cuts without corresponding spending cuts or other revenue increases, then that tax cut is unfunded.

Bush & the Republicans cut taxes while increasing spending due to expansion of government & a time of war. There were no corresponding spending cuts nor were there ay revenue increases.

What Republicans Can Do to Adapt (But Probably Won’t)

....Carl DeMaio, a Republican who narrowly lost the San Diego mayoral race this month, has some good advice for his co-partisans:“Californians like government, and voters want government to work again. Too often, Republicans have taken an ‘end it, don't mend it’ stance.‘New’ Republicans can offer a vision of making government work that is still consistent with our principles.”

Unfortunately, I don’t think DeMaio’s message is likely to be acceptable to conservatives in California or nationally. But as it becomes increasingly clear that the share of the electorate that reacts with Pavlovian consistency to “You Didn’t Build That” is not a majority, Republicans may be forced to offer such a message.

Imagine a person being so obsessed about whether a woman takes contraceptives or not?
That argument "as long as I don't pay for it" doesn't hold any water, yet they keep repeating it like parrots.
Everyone pays for everything in insurance; everyone pays for everything with taxes. No one gets to pick and choose.
Why is that so difficult to comprehend?
Because that argument "as long as I don't pay for it" is the only one which makes 'logical' sense to them, so they keep repeating it like parrots. They refuse to admit that their freedom to pick and choose what everyone else's insurance covers, is actually nonexistent. Wonder if they'd think it was okie-dokie for me to choose not to cover their erectile dysfunction, or their self-induced diabetes resulting from obesity? I'm thinking 'no'.

I don't think my premiums should cover a procedure just because she made a stupid decision then doesn't want the hassle of raising a kid. How a bout this, let her take the guy who knocked her up to court and make him pay for her abortion the way fathers are required to make child-support payments. If he still wants to keep boinking her, let him pay for her damn birth control too.
I'm glad insurance covered my husband's counseling, following his diagnosis of sterility. It was a real blessing. Thanks for paying his insurance premiums for the last 40 years. I'm sure he really appreciated it!!

Gas prices continue to plummet. Tensions are easing in the Middle East. Unemployment claims are steadily dropping. Our standing in Asia greatly improved during his recent trip. I urge all Americans to give thanks for President Obama this Thanksgiving.
Unemployment claims are dropping because we have a president who tells us we "didn't build that" and that the cure for unemployment if welfare, food stamps and free phones. People are accepting his defeatist attitude and giving up looking for work.

As for Asia, he probably set up a deal to give them food stamps and Obama phones. Funny how he takes credit for all those "gifts" like the money that pays for them comes from his own pocket, ain't it?

Thank goodness, Spending cuts, I'm all for them. Except the military. The Giverment, Barack Hussein Obama et al, didn't list any spending cuts. Your reasoning still falls short though.. You "doesn't has to 'fund' a tax cut". Just don't ask the taxpayer, you know the guy who pays the bill, to send the money in.... Simple really. A tax cut puts more money in my pocket, and in your pocket. You if your employer wasn't required to send so much money to DC and your State, you might get more than and 'atta boy, good job'.......in your pay envelope.

Mitt Romney's Sneering Farewell to the '47 Percent'

Now before dispensing with Romney for good -- as most Americans (including many Republicans) are understandably eager to do -- it is worth noting that these churlish excuses to his donors represent the ultimate falsification, not only of his campaign but of his own character.

Recall how he disowned the "47 percent" remarks when he realized how damaging they were to his chances for victory, telling Sean Hannity on Fox News that what he had been caught saying at a $50,000-a-plate Boca Raton fundraising event was "just completely wrong." His mea culpa was factually accurate, of course -- as we have discovered again lately with the news that so many food stamp recipients reliably vote Republican. Those who don't pay income tax include plenty of Republicans, especially the elderly on Social Security and military personnel on active duty and poor white evangelical voters who simply don't earn enough. They also include thousands of wealthy Romney supporters who, like their candidate, have learned to manipulate the tax system.

But as a matter of feelings rather than facts, Romney evidently cannot stop himself from sneering at society's struggling people and the politicians who seek to improve their lives. It is not as if the donors he was addressing don't want "gifts" from government -- such as the big new tax breaks that Romney had promised them, the huge increases in defense spending that would swell their profits, or the various individual corporate favors that they regard as their very own "entitlements." Just don't expect that kind of honest introspection from Romney or his crowd.
