"'I don't think [liberal voters won't show up],' he said, 'because I think what's at stake in November is too important to do that.'"Wrong, asshole. And you should check out the primaries from this week. The Dems who WON received fewer votes than the Repubs who LOST.
What a great campaign slogan. 'We suck a little less than the other guys'.
Fuck Gibbs. Asshole.
The Rude Pundit:
"So, let's get this straight, Bobby G. We on the left warned your boss and the Democrats that every time you reached out your hands to the Republicans, those fuckers would just gnaw on 'em. But you kept on with the effort of bipartisanship, watering down bills and watering 'em down. Anyone with a lick of sense knew that the GOP was just setting you up: force 'em to compromise and then make sure that what gets passed does just a scintilla of what could have been done. On bill after bill these mad negotiations occurred, and now you're accusing us of not living in reality? No, really, truly, fuck you, man."
AMERICAblog News: Shattered Expectations: My 2 Cents:
"He ran on this incredibly inspirational platform of hope and change. There was a real sense that Obama could be the guy to stop business as usual in Washington and redeem government. I know I'm not alone in believing he recognized the time had come to remind lawmakers whom they worked for - the people - and remind the people that government could be on their side.
However, it's been almost 2 years, and no one feels that way.
What permeates is the sense that the President has compromised his alleged values and backtracked on his campaign promises in a way that jaded insiders would say was to be expected but the general population hoped wasn't the case. We wanted to believe. We really did. I know I did."
Rep. Grayson Unleashes On Gibbs: "Bozo The Spokesman" (VIDEO)
No one could have every predicted. Heckuva job, Obama. Heckuva job.
Hispanic media turn on President Obama - Carrie Budoff Brown - POLITICO.com:
"President Barack Obama has lost the most trusted man in the Hispanic media.
Univision’s Jorge Ramos, an anchor on the nation’s largest Spanish-language television network, says Obama broke his promise to produce an immigration reform bill within a year of taking office. And Latinos are tired of the speeches, disillusioned by the lack of White House leadership and distrustful of the president, Ramos told POLITICO."
The spiritual leader of the Republican party is a hypocritical asshole? Shocking.
Newt Gingrich = Every Republican.
Newt Gingrich = Every Republican.
Newt Gingrich's Second Wife Dishes Hard To Esquire: His Money Woes, His Philandering, His Meltdown | TPMMuckraker:
"Esquire goes on to describe the financial pressures faced by the new couple: Gingrich declared keeping a budget 'too stressful,' so Marianne took that over, looking to maintain homes in Georgia and D.C., pay Gingrich's alimony and child support and reduce his massive personal debt. A Vanity Fair article from 1995 indicates that Jackie, too, was in charge of the household finances because of Gingrich's spendthrift ways: in fact, the debt the couple faced when they married in 1981 wasn't paid off until 1994.
In 1997, Gingrich was fined $300,000 by the House for ethics violations related to college courses and a non-profit. He and Marianne didn't have the money, so he began to write a book. But the book didn't turn out as anyone expected: it was a dramatic apology that Marianne described as 'weird.' With his inner circle, she attempted to edit it into something publishable -- but they ended up scrapping the manuscript entirely.
After the book petered out in 1997, Marianne said that his behavior began to deteriorate."
