NOW they want a Gov't Takeover

Guess who said this. If a student turned this in as part of an essay, they are staring at a solid 'D'.

Not one proper sentence. Read it out loud.

How do you get on every TV channel, every magazine, every radio show? Practice? Nope. Be a complete and utter fucking moron.

****fact-free commentary on Paul and BP****:
"'I think there is certainly a double standard at play here. When Rand Paul had anticipated that he'd be able to engage in a discussion, he being a libertarian-leaning constitutional conservative, being able to engage in a discussion with a TV character, a media personality, who perhaps had an agenda in asking the question and then interpreting his answer the way that she did, he wanted to talk about, evidently, some hypotheticals as it applies to impacts on the Civil Rights Act, as it impacts our Constitution. So he was given the opportunity finally to clarify, and unequivocally he has stated that he supports the Civil Rights Act.'"

Bob Cesca: Republicans Demand a Government Takeover and Bailout of the Oil Spill:
"The dominant centerpiece to all of this outrage has been the Republican idea that the states and the free market should be left alone to deal with problems and crises on its own without 'socialist' -- or even 'communist' depending on which AM radio station you listen to -- interference from big government and our America-hating president. No government takeovers. Freedom! Liberty! And no stupid volcano thingees also.

Americans dying from a lack of health insurance? Too bad. No government takeover. The economy about to sink into a second Great Depression? Too bad. No government takeover. The Earth growing warmer due to the burning of fossil fuels? Too bad. No government takeover.

That is until last month."

On Blaming Bush - Paul Krugman Blog - NYTimes.com:\
"And one thing is clear: the financial crisis occurred on Bush’s watch. To demand that everyone let Bush off the hook for where we are now because 16 months have passed under his successor is to defy the overwhelming evidence of history."
