Yep! It's come time for Torches and pitchforks: Rush: Pelosi, Obama & Democrats Are Lying Through Their Teeth About AIG Bonuses
Rush Limbaugh reported yesterday that Democrats are lying through their teeth about the AIG bonuses... "It was in the stimulus bill that was written in Nancy Pelosi's damned office."
"The Congressional Budget Office..." Everybody was waiting for this number today. "The Congressional Budget Office says that the federal deficit this year will now top $1.8 trillion." That is exactly half of Obama's proposed budget: $1.8 trillion. The Democrat Party was having cows when the Bush deficit was $400 billion. This is $1.8 trillion, and there's no end in sight to the new spending. This is to destroy the individual and liberty and freedom and the capitalist system that made this country great. $1.8 trillion. But we live in a bipolar culture, and the people who blindly support Barack Obama, who think of him as nothing more than a cool celebrity, don't even have an idea what a budget is, much less a deficit -- and they certainly don't think it's bad if it's his...
...A $1.8 trillion budget -- that's trillion with a "T". Tim Geithner. Thanks to Ed Morrissey at HotAir.com: Tim Geithner, the tax cheat and the secretary of the Treasury, and Congress claim that they were blindsided by the AIG bonuses late last week before anybody had a chance to stop AIG from paying the bonuses. I can't tell you how flipping mad what happened yesterday in the House of Representatives makes me...
...It was in the stimulus bill that was written in Nancy Pelosi's damned office! Those bonuses were exempted, limits on those bonuses were exempted. The bonuses were known when they wrote the stimulus bill. It happened in Nancy Pelosi's office, and Barney Frank helped write it. They passed a law, and they sent it to the president, and good old Special Olympics- teleprompter Obama signed the damn thing. Would never have happened, had they not exempted it. It was in the bill, it was in the law, and they act yesterday like they got blindsided. And they act yesterday like somebody pulled a trick on them. I detest these people. If the mob is mad, if the mob is angry -- go ahead and be mad at AIG, if you want, if you want to follow popular sentiment.
I won't even start with Rush Limbaugh because that's a whole other topic. I'll just say that if you're gonna be a conservative, at least choose a more intelligent source.
Anyway, I am not going to argue that Obama and his team are on their way to resolving this crisis, but Bush's team wasn't doing any better with it. In fact, if Bush's team had done better, then maybe the mess wouldn't be so bad right now.
The bottom line is this is a difficult crisis for which there is no easy solution regardless of who's in office. I think if old man McCain and retard Palin were in charge right now, the country would be just about finished.
good old Special Olympics- teleprompter Obama signed the damn thing
Your post is good, but what's with the "teleprompter" crap?
Bush, the DUMBEST F*K EVER for PresiDUNCE HAD to use a teleprompter.
Obama graduated Magna Cum Laude from Harvard and doesn't NEED a teleprompter.
John McCain graduated at the BOTTOM of his class at the Naval Academy. And at 75, he's 1/2 senile.
So cut the "teleprompter" crap.
It makes your post lose credibility.
stretch -- chill out... you are missing the point of the message.... he does use a telemprompter.... big deal.... the person wrote the article and I think he/she was just quoting Rush Limbaugh.... It is not the fact that obama uses a telemprompter, it is the massive spending and alleged deceit that is coming out of Congress that the post is all about.
