It is a bad omen for Robme's endorsement of Paul Ryan's Austerity budget. Who do these rightwing nutcases think they're fooling? Only their low information voters AKA Fux watchers.
Willard Robme is a maroon.
The GOP is extremely UNAMERICAN and anti-democratic.
Vote them ALL OUT in 2012!!!

The French voted in a Socialist(aka commie), just like Odumbo. Goodgawd, the world has gone mad, and you democrat clowns are stupid enough to think that is what the US constitution is all about. You are a product of public schools and the liberal brainwashing those ex-hippie teachers cram into your mushie heads. Obamma is poised to sell our country down the tubes to the UN. Are you ready to give up all our liberties and make the USA a subservient state? You are ll traitors.

"What’s wrong with the prescription of spending cuts as the remedy for Europe’s ills? One answer is that the confidence fairy doesn’t exist — that is, claims that slashing government spending would somehow encourage consumers and businesses to spend more have been overwhelmingly refuted by the experience of the past two years. So spending cuts in a depressed economy just make the depression deeper.

Moreover, there seems to be little if any gain in return for the pain. Consider the case of Ireland, which has been a good soldier in this crisis, imposing ever-harsher austerity in an attempt to win back the favor of the bond markets. According to the prevailing orthodoxy, this should work. In fact, the will to believe is so strong that members of Europe’s policy elite keep proclaiming that Irish austerity has indeed worked, that the Irish economy has begun to recover.

But it hasn’t. And although you’d never know it from much of the press coverage, Irish borrowing costs remain much higher than those of Spain or Italy, let alone Germany. So what are the alternatives?"
