Rush Limbaugh Calls Troops ‘Welfare Queens, Moochers’
From the upscale Palm Beach corporate headquarters of his Excellence in Broadcasting Network, right-wing radio host Rush Limbaugh unloaded on America’s men and women in uniform, insinuating their motives as less than pure.
The comments came during Limbaugh’s second hour on Monday. A caller had voiced support for President Obama’s signature Affordable Health Care Act, the crowning achievement of Obama’s administration thus far and a piece of legislation that conferred health care coverage on 40 million of the nation’s poor and middle class. When the caller identified himself as a retired Army Master Sergeant, and compared the AFA to the military’s free medical care for all servicemembers and their families, Limbaugh cut him off and began the controversial response.
You see, Master Sergeant,” began Limbaugh, rubbing his hands together,“you have exposed yourself. I thank you for the call — and I thank you for your service, I really do — but you’ve exposed yourself. Of course you like the idea of the government putting a b to war, you get free medicine, free food, free place to sleep, even free clothes to wear to work every day. The taxpayer even gives you years-long paid vacations to exotic foreign lands.....
“You’ll also probably think, well—” and here Limbaugh inclined the intonation of his voice to imitate that of a child,“Mr. Limbaugh, if only everyone could have fwee ice cream, Mr. Limbaugh, then the world would be all sunshine and unicorns and happiness. The only problem,” continued Limbaugh, returning to his normal voice,“is that ice cream, folks, like health care, is not free.... And if you believe otherwise, you are not a defender of the nation. You’re a welfare queen — or more appropriately, a welfare grunt.”

It used to be, back when I was of age to serve, back in the Vietnam era, that soldiers were stout, upright, conservative young men. They were Southern. They voted Republican. Their wives stayed home and had babies and knew their place. Cooked dinner, had a highball waiting when the husband got home, so forth. But nowadays we have a .well, in this case, you can change a leopard’s spots, folks. But he’s still a leopard. Still a moocher.

Bloated Government? Federal Employment at 47-Year Low
By FLOYD NORRIS

It was the summer of 1966. Lyndon Johnson was in the White House and the Great Society was roaring. In August, the federal government had 2,721,000 employees.

Now it is the fall of 2013. There are complaints from Washington about a bloated federal government. Another Democrat, Barack Obama, is president.

In September, before the government shutdown, the government had 2,723,000 employees, according to the latest job report, on a seasonally adjusted basis. That is the lowest figure since 1966. Until now, the lowest figure for the current century had been 2,724,000 federal employees in October 2004, when George W. Bush was seeking a second term in the White House.

Now, the federal government employs exactly 2 percent of the people with jobs in this country. In 1966, the figure was more than twice that, 4.3 percent.

All these figures, by the way, are for civilian jobs. Members of the armed forces are not counted. If they were included, the contrast would be even sharper. In 1966 the Vietnam War was going on, and around 2.6 million people were on active duty. This year the figure is around 1.4 million.

While the federal government continues to shrink — the September figure is down 3.1 percent from a year ago — state and local government jobs have begun to grow again, albeit slowly..."

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will declare the glitches in a new health care website "unacceptable" on Monday and outline ways for consumers to sign up for insurance while his team scrambles to fix problems that have tainted the rollout of his signature health care law.
http://news.msn.com/us/obama-to-call-health-c...
Someone should tell him his "signature law" was tainted from the get-go.
In fact, his entire administration has been one big glitch after another.
You're acting like this hasn't happened before Carol. When the Bush Medicare Part D was enacted it was at the outset an unmitigated disaster. Ohio Congressman John Boehner, future Speaker of the House, admitted as much to Fox News in February 2006 when he lamented that two years after its passage, "The implementation of the Medicare plan has been horrendous."
In 2006, the bill went into effect. It was a disaster. Computer systems didn't communicate with one another. Seniors were confused. Some of the poorest and sickest enrollees -- "dual eligibles" who qualify for aid under both Medicare and Medicaid -- weren't able to get their drugs. It was so bad that in his 2006 State of the Union address, Bush "said nothing about the new Medicare prescription drug program, an initiative Republicans once hoped to trumpet but has angered many seniors in its implementation," reported the Washington Post.
Much like Republican opponents of the Affordable Care Act in 2010, most Democratic Senators and almost all Democratic House members voted against Bush's Medicare Rx plan because they considered it an unnecessarily expensive, unfunded giveaway to insurance companies and pharmaceutical firms. But unlike Republican obstructionists who went to the Supreme Court, attempted to repeal and defund the law, blocked the expansion of Medicaid, refused to set up their own state health care exchanges, sought to cut-off funds for Obamacare "navigators," tried to halt spending on outreach and customer service, and even proclaimed they would refuse to answer constituent calls, Democrats at all levels helped save Bush's signature health care achievement from its disastrous roll-out. As then-Senator Hillary Clinton reasoned in 2006:
"I voted against it, but once it passed I certainly determined that I would try to do everything I could to make sure that New Yorkers understood it, could access it, and make the best of it."
That's the difference between Democrats and the current batch of Republicans Carol. Once the law was passed the Democrats got on board and actually helped it work. The ACA is making it even better by shrinking the donut hole and providing seniors with rebates to help them afford their medications.

Ray Donovan asked you a question. Why won't Sebelius testify at the congressional hearings?
Here's the answer you should have given: Because this administration has perfected the art of stonewalling and sweeping dirt under the rug, and the liberal media doesn't give a damn.
It has nothing to do with Republicans expecting to be included in the political process.
What's there to testify about Carol? Yes, the overwhelming response to the exchanges created an overload on the system. The same thing happened with Medicare Part D as I've already demonstrated. There weren't any congressional investigations then and there's no reason for them now. Unlike the Democrats who actually helped resolve the problems with the Bush/Republican plan, the Republicans only want to obstruct any progress.

""French see Bush as the ugly American
By Vivienne Walt, USA TODAY
PARIS — In France's popular television satire, Les Guignols d'Info (The News Puppets), a Sylvester Stallone puppet struts on screen nightly, threatening to shoot 'em up against the Iraqis. French viewers clutching their sides in laughter understand who the show is lampooning: George W. Bush.
The disdain for Bush among many French people — exacerbated by the U.S. administration's aggressive push for a war in Iraq — is just one of several factors tearing the two allies apart. But it is the most visible. The view here and across parts of Europe is that the U.S. president's style and policies embody all that is brash, crass and impolitic about America. One reason the level of frustration may have reached a new high is many here feel there is little they or their leaders can do against America's overwhelming power.(Related item: Many Europeans oppose war in Iraq)
The shift in attitude is dramatic since Sept. 11, 2001, when French regularly stopped Americans in Paris to express their solidarity. France's Liberation newspaper published a poll 10 days later showing 73% of the French public believed their country should participate in any military action by U.S. forces in response to the attacks. On Sept. 12, 2001, the front page of France's largest newspaper Le Monde declared, "We are all Americans."
But they will be all French on Saturday, when thousands are expected to gather here as part of worldwide protests against a war in Iraq. A poll last week by the firm IFOP found that 77% of French adults oppose a war in Iraq, even if the U.N. Security Council gives its endorsement. And 81% said they didn't believe U.S. arguments that Saddam Hussein has been developing weapons of mass destruction in defiance of U.N. resolutions. Polls in Germany and several other European countries have shown similar opposition to the U.S. push to disarm Iraq by force.""

You're a filthy liar, nothing less.
You pull up a news article over a decade old roughly a month before the 2003 Iraq invasion. It exposed how a nation of surrender monkeys reacted to the potential of losing one of their top (mostly illicit) trade partners. After the 1991 Gulf War the French jackals were one of the biggest violators of UN imposed Iraq trade sanctions.
