Cruel Irony

In less than 24 hours, a story about a shady, secret bipartisan effort to rescue members of Congress and their staffs from the rough seas of Obamacare has turned into a much less controversial tale about Obamacare implementation problems ensnaring innocent Hill staffers.

What I imagine makes all this unusually annoying for Democrats is that this particular Obamacare problem only exists because four years ago a Republican Senator tried to embarrass them with an amendment nobody really thought was good policy.

But that’s all deep in the dustbin at this point. In 2013, every Obamacare implementation screw up is presented and viewed as the direct consequence of bad Democratic legislating. Even in cases where the legislative measure in question was written in a fit of pettiness by a Republican trying to kill the bill.

Rachel Maddow tore into the conservative media on her Wednesday MSNBC show for what she called "taking the gloves off" during its coverage of the Boston bombings.

Maddow discussed what she considered the problematic ways members of the conservative media from Matt Drudge to Bill O'Reilly have been covering the bombings and how it relates to Islam.

She ran multiple clips from various Fox News programs and said, "The right is taking the gloves off after the Boston bombing." She added, "The most influential conservative media online is full on embracing the conspiracy theorists who say it was the government that staged the Boston bombing as a 'false flag' attack. On the televised conservative media, it is a full on religious war:'The problem is Muslims. The solution is an American war on Muslims.' These forces have always existed on the right, and they are now as mainstream as they have ever been. Where are the countervailing forces on the right? And where does this all end?"

As usual, morons like you want America to shoot first and aim later.
Just because you are willing to shove or have anything shoved into your mouth doesn't automatically mean you are free to put words into my mouth, too.

BTW, how did you know the the VP, Obiden, has no balls?

Republicans: The Boston Marathon Bombing Was the President's Fault! Impeach!

In the days and months after 9/11, even hinting that Bush had acted poorly in the wake of the attacks or had perhaps not done enough to prevent them (he was warned -- a lot) was immediately beaten down as unpatriotic or "with the terrorists." The sentiment was universal. Democrats and Republicans alike agreed to lay off the president for a while, an attitude that definitely lasted for way too long and enabled a slate of hard-right laws that passed with unanimous bipartisan support -- laws that we're still trying to unravel today. It's not a stretch to attribute this reaction to both Republican partisanship and jingoism and the strange Democratic psychosis involuntarily forcing them to be easily suckered into coitus with political enemies.

Conversely, none of the same courtesy has been extended to our current president following the Boston Marathon bombing. Not so shocking, considering how it likewise didn't happen in the aftermath of the Great Recession, or after the killing of Bin Laden, or after the end of the Iraq War. It certainly didn't happen following each of the various gun massacres -- terrorist attacks at gunpoint. And, as we're all aware, an outright conservative inquest was launched following the consulate attack in Benghazi, in spite of the fact that 11 similar attacks took place during the Bush years with considerably greater body counts.

Suffice to say, if another attack were to occur at or even below the level of September 11, this president would likely be impeached within a week.

Worse, the conspiracy theories first marketed by Alex Jones last week are being mainstreamed throughout the conservative entertainment complex. In the Bush post-9/11 context, imagine not only broad liberal and Democratic attacks against President Bush within a week of the attacks, but also the mainstreaming of the various 9/11 Truther conspiracies.

....I think you get the idea. It's been just over a week and all of the usual suspects are engaged in nonsense far worse than anything Natalie Maines ever said. In fact, I'm waiting for Dinesh D'Souza to release another movie about how the president's "anti-colonialism" caused the bombing. Just wait another few days and it'll be in wide release. Actually, I wouldn't be shocked if the Republicans elevated the Saudi conspiracy theory into another Benghazi-style coverup plot.

It's all yet another case study in how the Republicans too often comport themselves in the wake of a disaster -- these self-proclaimed "patriots" are merely selective, fair-weather patriots, only willing to lend their unified support when the president is from their own party and prepared to bomb the hell out of brown people somewhere. They will not give an inch on anything. They will contradict themselves, ignore their own records, jump to paranoid conclusions, risk embarrassment and generally do whatever it takes to disrupt and sabotage the Obama presidency. And they're willing to brazenly and unapologetically exploit these tragedies as a means of doing so.

Here's the real story from CBS...not an opinion pioece.
Patrick Orders Inquiry Into Bombing Suspect’s Welfare Benefits
"“I mean, there are good and bad people on and off public assistance, but it’s obviously concerning that people who have done this kind of damage to us all would have been on the public dole for some period of time,” the governor said.

Our American Senate: When 90% of Americans say we want background checks, they can't pull it together on that to make it happen.

But when their flights get delayed because of budget cuts? Somehow they can pass a bill to rectify that (and only that) immediately and with near unanimity.

That 90% statistic evaporates when you inform them that a father-to-son gift requires a background check at substantial cost.

Occupy has a new target: the National Rifle Association. Check this out: http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2013/04/o... "Demonstrators protesting the US Senate's inaction on gun violence gathered in Washington's McPherson Park on Thursday before marching to the front doors of five lobbying firms that have worked on behalf of the National Rifle Association. The payments those firms received from the NRA in 2012 were displayed on giant novelty checks that demonstrators held up for photo-ops in front of police officers guarding the entrances.

That wasn't the original plan, exactly. The protest's organizers, which included Occupy the NRA, Public Campaign, and CREDO*, had intended to drive a hearse full of caskets to the firms back on April 16. " Tell the U S Congress to stop working for the N.R.A.!

Saudi national Ali Al-Harbi has visited the White House multiple times since 2009

This could definitely explain a lot, including the record manipulation Beck has been talking about.

http://www.therightscoop.com/saudi-national-a...

The latest information on TheBlaze’s investigation into the Saudi national reveals the State Department is trying to prevent as many people as possible from accessing the information. When federal officials attempt to access this Saudi’s file – they won’t get very far.
