2008 Obama said Bush's 9.5 trillion dollars debt was unpatriotic....but somehow Obama's 2013 debt of 17 trillion is just fine.

Liberal progressive thinking at it's worse!

Boehner also has a problem. He doesn't represent the conservative point of view. He doesn't speak for me or my family. I think it's time to retire some of these embedded politicians.

I'll go a step further. Carl Rove is nothing more than part of the problem in Washington. Lobbyists,consultants and their connections to crooked politicians. They are bought and paid for. Rove's snarkie response to Palin's CPAC comments. What Rove doesn't understand is Palin didn't finish her term as governor because the state of Alaska had to pay for her legal expenses because she was governor. The left was filing every bogus lawsuit they could dream up and the Alaskan taxpayer had to pay to defend Palin. She cared more than her state than she did about what political hacks would say about her. Rove is a political hack in my opinion, he's loyalty is how he can leverage power for personal gain. Whether you like or dislike Palin she didn't use her people in Alaska when she could have so easily to "save" face. All the lawsuits never prove any wrong doing on her part they were a political stunt. It worked in marginalizing her voice. To me if you wanted to improve America why not marginalize Nancy Pelosi? That would be a worthy cause!

Donnie was a single guy living at home with his father and working in the family business. When he found out he was going to inherit a fortune when his sickly father died, he decided he needed a wife with which to share his fortune.

One evening at an investment meeting he spotted the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. Her natural beauty took his breath away.'I may look like just an ordinary man,' he said to her,'but in just a few years, my father will die, and I'll inherit 20 million dollars.'

Impressed, TAMARA obtained his business card and three days later, she became his stepmother.

Senator Tom Coburn was invited to address a major gathering of the American Indian Nation two weeks ago in Catoosa, Ok. at the Hard Rock Casino.

He spoke for almost an hour on his future plans for increasing every Native American's present standard of living, should he one day become the first Okie President. He referred to his career as a Okie Senator, how he had signed 'YES' for every Indian issue that came to his desk for approval. Although the Senator was vague on the details of his plan, he seemed most enthusiastic about his future ideas for helping his 'red sisters and brothers'.

At the conclusion of his speech, the Tribes presented the Senator with a plaque inscribed with his new Indian name - "Walking Eagle". The proud Senator then departed in his motorcade, waving to the crowds.

A news reporter later inquired to the group of chiefs of how they come to select the new name given to the Senator. They explained that "Walking Eagle" is the name given to a bird so full of sh*t that it can no longer fly.

RNC Report: Voters Think GOP Does Not Care About People
Public perceives party as 'scary, narrow minded and out of touch,' Republican group says

Voters think that the GOP does not care about people, the Republican National Committee said in its much anticipated autopsy released Monday. The report offers some self-reflection and analysis of the shortcomings that led to losing the 2012 presidential election.

It's a perception that "is doing great harm to the party and its candidates on the federal level, especially in presidential years. The group called it a major deficiency that must be addressed. "Instead of connecting with voters' concerns, we too often sound like bookkeepers," the report said. "We need to do a better job connecting people to our policies."

The report said public perception of the party is "at record lows" and points out the need to appeal to young voters.

"Young voters are increasingly rolling their eyes at what the Party represents, and many minorities wrongly think that Republicans do not like them or want them in the country. When someone rolls their eyes at us, they are not likely to open their ears to us."

Asked to describe Republicans, focus group participants used the words "scary," "narrow minded," and "out of touch." They said the GOP was a party of "stuffy old men," the report says.

The GOP caring depends on skin color. Of course the GOP will tolerate a token or two. If they cared about inclusion of blacks in society for instance as created equal, how could they maintain their sense of superiority as human beings? They couldn't. racism is the basis of their sense of worth and value. They must see blacks as born inferior to them, and do everything to make it seem that way, otherwise most would commit suicide. Their life would have no meaning.

Lets remove from the equation the nepotism, the related, the peers, the cronies, and the "friends" of the various programs who make congressional members wealthy. Lets also strip away their golden-parachute retirement perks- such as pensions and health insurance for life. I see no evidence by their actions and deeds that would support a statement of describing their compassion for the average person. We the people make it pretty clear what we want, they ( congress) choose to allow others do the real voting for them via special interest. The difference between the two parties, in this respect, is that the GOP allows far more of this proxied-in and leveraged interests, and almost always at the cost of John Q Public. Its hard to shake a negative perception, right or wrong.

DNC Report: Voters know Progressive Liberals Do Not Care About People. The Public perceives this new democrat party as 'scary, narrow minded and out of touch and definitely out of their minds, the Democrat group says.

All Voters know that the DNC does not care about people anymore since the Progressive Liberals highjacked the Democrat Party, the Democrat National Committee admitted in its much anticipated report released. The report offers some self-reflection and analysis of the illegal activity and voter fraud that led to winning the 2012 presidential election, as plans are developed to rig the 2014 mid-term elections if possible.

It's absolutely a fact that it "is doing great harm to the democrat party and its candidates on the federal level, especially in mid-term election years like 2010. The group called it a major deficiency that should be addressed but the weak yellow dogs are running scared. "Instead of connecting with common sense voters' concerns, they too often sound like Plantation Keepers," the report proves. "They are trying to do a better job connecting people to Republican policies but make it appear it's their policies lying every breath they take."

The report proves the public perception of this liberal hack infested party is "at record lows" and points out the need to completely expose it and let it self-destruct. "Young voters are increasingly rolling their eyes at what the Progressive Liberal Retard Party represents, and many minorities wrongly thought that Republicans did not like them or want them in the country but this report proves otherwise. When someone rolls their eyes at these liberal retarded douche bags, they are not likely to open their ears to them spewing regurgitated douche-juice."

Asked to describe these Progressive Liberal Douche Bags, the focus group participants used the words "very scary," "really very narrow minded," and "totally out of touch." They said the DNC was a party of "sick pukes," this report proved.

In fact, the “History” section of the Democratic Party’s website isn’t exactly fabulous. Also, it starts by mentioning the Party’s 200 years of history but skips to start during the 1930s, conveniently (and understandably) glossing on past the Party’s connections to slavery, Mob Lynching, Jim Crow laws, started the Klu Klux Klan to enforce Jim Crow etc.

Oh Really? Let’s see here now! Obamacare comes to mind!

Let’s meet Liz Fowler: Architect of ObamaCare! Liz Jumps Ship To Johnson & Johnson.
In recent days it has emerged that Liz Fowler, who is said to have been one of the key architects of ObamaCare, is doing what any good revolving door crony capitalist would do. She is moving to the private sector to receive her payoff. Trudy Lieberman of the Columbia Journal Review explains that:

Herewith is a brief Liz Fowler curriculum vitae: In 2001 she had a plum job as chief counsel for the Senate Finance Committee, which deals with healthcare bills. As Greenwald’s old Salon post notes, her biography says she “played a key role” in the 2003 Medicare prescription drug law that created a new senior drug benefit, a benefit provided via private insurers, not the government, as is the case for other Medicare benefits. A few years later she landed a position at Well-Point as a vice president over-seeing the giant insurer’s lobbying activities.

Liz Fowler then returned to Senate Finance in 2008 to work for Sen. Max Baucus, a Democrat who chaired the committee, which was becoming Action Central for health reform. Fowler and Baucus pretty much wrote the bill that became Obamacare and which, we should note, did not include a proposed “public option,” which was popular with ordinary people but not the insurance companies that lobbied hard to make sure it was out of the mix.

Then this week Politico’s Dave Levinthal and Anna Palmer had a scoop: Liz Fowler is returning to the private world, this time to a senior level position leading global health policy at Johnson & Johnson’s government affairs and policy group. Imagine that!

Obamacare will increase the long-term federal deficit by $6.2 trillion, according to a Government Accountability Office (GAO) report released today. Senator Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.), who requested the report, revealed the findings this morning at a Senate Budget Committee hearing. The report, he said,“confirms everything critics and Republicans were saying about the faults of this bill,” and “dramatically proves that the promises made assuring the nation that the largest new entitlement program in history would not add one dime to the deficit were false.”

President Obama and other Democrats attempted to win support for the health-care bill by touting it as a fiscally responsible enterprise.“I will not sign a plan that adds one dime to our deficits either now or in the future,” Obama told a joint-session of Congress in September 2009.“I will not sign it if it adds one dime to the deficit, now or in the future, period.” The new report exposes the “lack of honesty” surrounding such claims, Sessions argued.“The big-government crowd in Washington manipulated the numbers in order to get the financial score they wanted, in order to get their bill passed and to increase power and influence,” he said.“The goal was not truth or financial responsibility, but to pass the bill. This is how a country goes broke.”

The GAO report is essentially the first attempt to isolate and calculate Obamacare’s impact on the deficit beyond the traditional ten-year budget window. GAO ran two simulations “based on broad sets of assumptions about health care spending and other components of federal spending and revenue” over a 75-year period. First, a baseline-extended simulation, which “illustrates the long-term outlook assuming federal laws (applicable at the time the simulation was run) remain unchanged,” and second, an alternative simulation, which “illustrates the long-term fiscal outlook assuming historical trends and policy preferences continue.” The baseline scenario is far more optimistic, largely because it does not take into account the concerns expressed by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Trustees, and Medicare’s chief actuary about “whether certain cost-containment mechanisms included in PPACA can be sustained over the long term.”

However, the GAO report concluded that even under these “more optimistic assumptions,” Obamacare’s cost-control provisions “were not sufficient to prevent an unsustainable increase in debt held by the public.” The alternative scenario, which incorporates the more realistic “alternative projections” suggested by CBO, the CMS trustees, and the chief Medicare actuary, is even more dire. Under this scenario, the “primary deficit” increases by 0.7 percent of GDP over the 75-year period. The GAO does not put a dollar value on that figure, but Senate Budget Committee staff has calculated, and GAO has confirmed, that it would amount to a $6.2 trillion increase in the federal deficit.

Mary Falin and her driver were cruising home along a country road one evening when an ancient cow loomed in front of the car.

The driver tried to avoid it but couldn't.
The aged cow was struck and killed.

Mary told her driver to go up to the farmhouse and explain to the owners what had happened and pay them for the cow.

She stayed in the car making phone calls.
About an hour later the driver staggered back to the car with his clothes in disarray.

He was holding a half-empty bottle of expensive wine in one hand, a huge Cuban cigar in the other, and was smiling happily, smeared with lipstick.

"What happened to you," asked Mary?

"Well," the driver replied, "the farmer gave me the cigar, his wife gave me the wine, and their beautiful twin daughters made passionate love to me."

"My God, what did you tell them?" asked Mary.

The driver replied, "I just stepped inside the door and said,'I'm Mary Fallin's driver and I've just killed the old cow.'

The rest happened so fast I couldn't stop it."

Dear Abby,

I am a crack dealer in Norman, Oklahoma who has recently been diagnosed as a carrier of HIV virus. My parents live in Tulsa. One of my sisters lives in Muskogee and is married to a transvestite.

My father and mother have recently been arrested for growing and selling marijuana. They are financially dependent on my other two sisters, who are prostitutes in Oklahoma City.

I have two brothers: one is currently serving a non-parole life sentence at McAlester for the murder of a teenage boy in 1994. My other brother is currently in jail awaiting charges of sexual misconduct with his three children.

I have recently become engaged to marry a former prostitute who lives in Duncan . She is a part time "working girl".

All things considered, my problem is this. I love my fiancé and look forward to bringing her into the family. I certainly want to be totally open and honest with her.

Should I tell her about my cousin who supports Mary Fallin for Governor?

Signed,
Worried About My Reputation

Mary and a Cowboy

Governor Mary Fallin (R), on an airliner bound for Texas, finds herself seated next to an older, weathered man in a western snap shirt, faded jeans, and a cowboy hat.

Thinking herself above the old cowboy, she decides to make sport of him.

"You know," she says, "I've heard these flights go much more quickly if you strike up a conversation with a fellow passenger.

So, let's talk."

The cowboy looks at her wryly and says, "Well I s'pose that'd be all right, m'am. What'd ya like to discuss?"

"Oh, I don't know," says Hillary with a slight hint of sarcasm.

"How about Obamacare?"

"Hmm," says the cowboy, sensing an attempt to perhaps belittle him, "That could be an interesting topic. But let me ask you a question first: Horses, cows, and deer all eat the same stuff--grass. Yet a deer passes little pellets, a cow turns out a flat patty, and a horse makes muffins of dried poop. Why do you suppose that is?"

Dumbfounded, Governor Fallin replies, "I haven't the slightest idea."

"So tell me, then," says the cowboy with a smile. "How is it that you feel qualified to discuss Obamacare when you don't know sh!t?
