This Is Not Politics

This is obstructionism at its worst.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) tried to bring up the House-passed payroll-tax bill for a vote with the intention of summarily rejecting it, but Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) objected. McConnell pushed for the Senate to first vote on an omnibus spending bill that would fund much of the federal government through 2012 and avert a shutdown after Friday night.

The two leaders ended their exchange with no immediate path forward. McConnell urged Reid to negotiate with Boehner, but Reid said “the Speaker can’t negotiate with me until this bill is killed” — referring to the payroll-tax measure.

No Thanks POTUS

No Thrill Up His Leg

Seems Chris Matthews might be seeing no light at the end of this Administration’s term? Is that right?

What? Is Chris Matthews trying to become Conservative?

Don’t make me laugh.

Screwed Yet Again

Because the Pres**ent B Obama loves to play politics (but with real cause and effect), we will not get any additional oil from Canada (due to putting off the Keystone Pipeline decision until ….. later, much later).

Apparently, BO thinks this is smart politics.

At the expense of 300 million citizens of the United States. (Because, Canada will now sell to others.)

Just like he has done with Obamacare.

He only cares about himself.

Come November of 2012, let’s care enough to open the door for him – and shove him out.

Occupiers Have Money For Bail

And they opened an account in Wells Fargo to hold it for them.

Wait. Weren’t they protesting Wells Fargo?

Oh, it’s TEMPORARY. Oh THAT makes all the difference then.

Protesters Don’t Want Jobs

You figure it out.

And, while you’re at that, think about their supporters.

It Takes Two

According to the Mayor of New York City, one-percenter Bloomberg – if there is anyone to blame for the mortgage crisis that led the collapse of the financial industry, it’s not the “big banks,” but Congress.

I’d go along with that but for one thing – it takes two to tango.

Congress (aka, Barney Frank) may have tilted the field by pushing and allowing Fannie & Freddie to ‘relax’ loan policies, but this has to spread to the banks in order to complete the process. And don’t forget, President Bush sounded warnings about this and tried to get Fannie & Freddie investigated – but Congress, aka, Barney Frank and others, prevented that.

You’re pandering again, Mayor, you reeally need to clean up the place. Starting with the park.
