Maxine Waters: "Se-Crest-Ation" ?

170 MILLION Jobs < Lost > ?

AHaHaaaHaaaaaa ...!

What's wrong with this woman? Can't she get anything right?

She can't even pronounce the word SE-QUES-TRA-TION correctly, let alone state The Facts regarding the number of jobs that would be lost due to "SE-CREST-ATION"; which she said at least 6 times. Can we get a 7th? A Hellelujer?

170 MILLION ? GTHOH !!! Sit Down AND STHU Maxie !

AHaaHaaaHeeHEE !!

Our deeply unbalanced fiscal debate
At a presser today, President Obama was peppered with questions from reporters who demanded to know if there is anything he can do to dislodge Republicans from their no-compromise stance. One suggested locking Republicans in a room until a deal is reached. Obama responded that he is “not a dictator.”
This is already being met with skepticism (see Ron Fournier, a determined advocate for the “GOP is uncompromising but the president must lead” point of view).
Let’s put aside the question of whether there is more that Obama could do to lead the GOP out of its intransigence. It’s becoming apparent that many simply don’t appreciate the true nature of the actual GOP position in this debate. So here’s a thought experiment designed to drive it home.
Imagine that Mitt Romney had been elected president last November with 51 percent of the vote. Obama’s platform — a mix of tax hikes and spending cuts, including cuts to entitlements — was soundly rejected, ending his presidency. Instead, voters chose Romney’s vision — we must get our fiscal problems under control only with deep spending cuts.
In that context, imagine if the lead article of the New York Times this morning had said this (warning: this is not a real article):
Reid halts talks on cuts, and Democrats cheer
WASHINGTON — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has come around to the idea that the best negotiations are no negotiations.
As the president and Congressional Republicans have tried to force Mr. Reid back to the table for talks to head off the automatic sequestration set to take effect on Friday, Mr. Reid has instead dug in deeper, refusing to even discuss any more spending cuts and insisting in his typical colorful language that it was time for the House to produce a measure aimed at averting the crisis.
“The spending cut issue is now closed,” Mr. Reid said Thursday, before the Senate left town for the weekend. Mr. Reid argued that Democrats had already agreed to $1.5 trillion in spending cuts in 2011, and that the dispute with Republicans amounted to a question of “how much more money do we want to steal from government programs the American people rely on.”
“I’m for no more,” Reid said.
Senate Democrats could not be more pleased with their leader for drawing a line against any more spending cuts, and for insisting that our remaining fiscal problems be resolved only with new tax hikes.“Friday will be an important day that shows we’re finally willing to stand and fight for liberal principles,” said Senator Jeff Merkley, a leading liberal.“That will be a big victory.”
This is, of course, a tweaked version of the article that actually did lead the New York Times today, which reported that John Boehner is leaving town without budging from his no-new-revenues stance, to the “cheers” of House Republicans. I’ve simply substituted Reid and Democrats for Boehner and Republicans, and subbed in a fictional position for Democrats — no more spending cuts of any kind, ever; we must only resolve our fiscal problems through tax hikes. This is a rough approximation (in reverse) of the current GOP stance.

Are you talking about Warren Buffet? Maybe Al Jazerra Gore or John "Hienz" Kerry?

No, you must be referring to former Governor/DemoCreep Jon "lost the billions of other people's money" Corzine, Obama's money handler former CEO of MF Global?

You're knowledge of industry is pathetic pal.
Chrysler is based in the USA and is piling up profits on top of profits paying worker bonuses and all the other yada yada. Jeep in Toledo is producing at it's highest rate in history helping that city crawl out of near bankruptcy to become one of the healthiest economies in the Midwest manufacturing (rust) belt.
Go play in a freeway, troll. I never said anything about where Chrysler was based. A foreign company is getting most of chrysler's profits, and like chrysler (and toyota for that matter), the pipeline will create american jobs. you leftwing sheep are so blinded by partisanship that you can't comprehend simple statements.

president nobama is much like you. He lives in La La Land. He submits budgets that he knows will not pass. The budgets he offers are so phoney he can not even get a single democrat to vote for them.

Whether you like the budgets or not does not change the FACT they were submitted.

If you were an educated, informed person you would know the budgets submitted by the Presidents are not voted on but rather go to the various committees for evaluation & changes.

Putting the submitted budget to a vote is just playing politics

Nice spin

"No one wants to fight for their protection, they want the government to do it. The same government who at one point hosed us down with water, attacked us with dogs, wouldn’t allow us to eat at their restaurants and told us we couldn’t own guns.[...] The only person responsible for your safety is you. Cops can’t always be there. Obama definitely can’t be there. Guy telling me to get rid of my guns when I need them the most, isn’t my friend, isn’t looking out for my best interests and doesn’t speak for me or the community that I’m part of."

here's the point (for realtime's sake)

"The only person responsible for your safety is you. Cops can’t always be there."

I know, right! Have we got a budget for this year yet? Everybody knows there has been no budget for over 1400 days. They just can't bring themselves to own up to the fact that they voted an empty suit. Not once but twice. Wasn't there something about fool me twice?

"The California Air Resource Board set up a way to hide billions of dollars in Cap and Trade revenue through a corporation “owned” by the public. This is beyond shady and suspect but not surprising. California has been setting up virtually all their redevelopment projects (5 billion dollars a year worth) as Delaware Corporations for years. Delaware LLcs are anonymous shell corporations that don't reveal any individual ownership.

In short they provide a legal form of money laundering and bribery.

So in an effort to collect and spend Cap and Trade money outside public view they set up a Delaware corp to deal with the 50-100 billion dollars that will be generated by this money. Earlier this week the Democrats in the Assembly refused to allow an audit of the CARB—and now it's clear why. "
