    Well – If your premise while very subject to interpretation is correct then it is time for Obama and his entire cabinet to resign in disgrace. Three strikes? Hell I stopped counting at constitutional runarounds and programs designed to void our laws yet garner votes such as promoting illegal invasion of the US.

    What time did you get this Soros/Media Matters Hit piece last night? Were they on the ball or did they pick one of the prepared articles?

    LET’S move the conversation to budgets and the economy…Let’s.

      What time did I get this?? Let’s see, I sat down and wrote this between 1am and the published timestamp of 2:18am EDT.

      3 words: Prove Me Wrong: [email protected]

      You want to talk about budgets and the economy? LET’S do that, shall we?

      The Ryan Budget Plan has the United States financial ledger running a deficit every year for the next 30 years – only THEN will we see an annual surplus.

      Further budget analysis from his voting record is not much better:
      -Voted YES on TARP (2008)
      -Voted YES on Economic Stimulus HR 5140 (2008)
      -Voted YES on $15B bailout for GM and Chrysler. (Dec 2008)
      -Voted YES on $192B additional anti-recession stimulus spending. (Jul 2009)

      The Ryan Plan also addresses entitlements – specifically Medicare and Medicaid. The problem is that there are no changes made to Medicare for 10 years, which leaves a full decade for the Medicare program to expand on it’s current $83.3 TRILLION unfunded liability.

      And again, to refer back to Paul Ryan’s record on entitlement programs:
      -Voted YES on providing $70 million for Section 8 Housing vouchers. (Jun 2006)
      -Voted YES on extending unemployment benefits from 39 weeks to 59 weeks. (Oct 2008)
      -Voted YES on Head Start Act (2007)

      …..so please… LET’S talk budgets, economy, and entitlements (which fit naturally into that mold)

      And I will agree with you on Obama and everyone else around him.

      I despise Obama, and everything that he’s done, doing, and wants to do.

      I’m not some idiotic liberal, as you rudely insinuated.

      I am a Conservative, and I have no problem pointing out when Republicans are not Conservatives — and most aren’t.
