At the rate it’s been going, the northeast United States is gonna have piles of Glo-Bull Warming in their parking lots in May! I just hope Mrs. Crawfish can escape in April.
With the vast majority of the American people opposing the Obamacare plans of Queen of the House Red Nanny P-Lousy and Dingy Harry Reid, Reid is threatening to ram the bill through by contorting Senate rules to suit his desires. When questioned on the matter, he told the GOP, and the whole nation, to “stop crying” about it. The Imperial Democratic Party knows what you need.
Dan Calabrese of North Star National has another great analogy concerning the health care summit. It takes a Minnesota Vikings fan to come up with this one, but it fits perfectly.
Folks, I just simply cannot make this stuff up. Back in 2005, the GOP was considering changing Senate rules to have a simple majority end filibusters on judicial nominations. In this video, you will see Senator Obama strongly opposing it. You will see Senator Hillary! strongly opposing it. You will see Senators Feinstein, Schumer, Baucus, and Dodd strongly opposing it. Senator Reid will call it “arrogance of power” and so will Senator Biden. Biden will even say, “I pray God when the Democrats take back control we don't make the kind of naked power grab you are doing.” So here we are in 2010 with those same characters supporting the nuclear option in order to destroy the health care industry in America? These jerks wonder why voter unhappiness with Congress has reached an all-time record of 71%, with only 10% saying that they’re doing an excellent job? I didn’t know that 10% of American voters were close relatives (or employees) of Congresscritters.
The health care summit…The Crawfish ain’t gonna bore y’all with a lot on that fiasco. His Majesty said he wanted to hear what the GOP proposed, but he himself spoke more than the GOP contingent, and his allies also spoke for longer than the GOP. When the GOP presented facts, Obama responded with lies. Senator Alexander said that the CBO reported insurance costs would rise, and Obama said that insurance costs to families would drop, conveniently not mentioning that those families who would see prices drop would be those who switched to Medicare or gummint-subsidized plans, while private insurance plans would see rate increases and all of the “savings” from the other families would be paid for with tax dollars. The telling point was that the Obamedia outlets switched off their coverage of the summit because their side was looking so bad. Even better was my check of CNN.com on Friday morning, when the summit wasn’t even mentioned in the 7 headlines for the POLITICS section.
I was one of the many who thought the GOP should not have attended, but I was wrong. They showed up with knowledge of what was actually in the plans and had the numbers and page/paragraph references ready to go. When Obama couldn’t lie in response, he just wanted to move along. He even accused the GOP of playing theater and pulling stunts because they had the unmitigated gall to have the whole bill in front on them.
You knew it was going to be a complete farce when Senator Alexander’s call for an end to Democrat talk of using the “reconciliation” option was answered by Dingy Harry Reid’s screech of, “No one’s talking about reconciliation!” Uh, Harry? Four of your own Dim-ocrat Senators requested that you use that plan in a letter to you on February 16th. His Arrogance, Press Nitwit Gibbs talked about it last week. You even talked about it on a public affairs show when you took The Anointed One to Nevada this month to campaign for you, followed by your comment that Republicans should “stop crying” over your plans to shove Obamacare down the throats of our nation. For more on Reid and the whole Blair House Bomb, check out Michelle (***sigh***) Malkin’s article from Friday.
YEEEEEEAAAAAAAARRRRRRGH! Howard Dean is at it again. He spoke at George Washington University and said the the Tea Party Movement is all about a bunch of white racists. “(T)he Tea Party is about a generation who grew up in an America where everyone looked like them.”
Krazy Kernal Qaddafi Duck is at it again. He’s got his tent in a twist over the recent vote by the citizens of Switzerland to oppose the Islamification of their nation, and has declared a holy war against Switzerland. That sounds an awful lot like a declaration of war, and should be immediately and decisively dealt with. If the Followers of the Pedophilic False Prophet don’t like the new laws of Switzerland, they can always move back to their sandboxes.
Thanks to contributor “Rob O” for this one. Ladies, you need to get this procedure done. Trust us, it isn’t for US. It’s for your own safety. REALLY!!!
President Obama is set to name a University of California-Berkeley law professor of Taiwanese ancestry to the 9th Circus Court of Appeals, the most overturned court in America. While the prof has occasionally supported some conservative-backed programs, he is the chairman of the board for the American Constitution Society, which despite its name opposes the belief that the Constitution means exactly what the Constitution says.
Congresscritter Xavier Becerra evidently thinks that the suggestion to start a meeting with the Pledge of Allegiance is so idiotic that it is laughable. Of course, the meeting was set up by one of the top Democratic Party unions, the SEIU, and was to discuss “comprehensive immigration reform” which we all know really means amnesty for all current and future illegal aliens and open borders.
The House Ethics Committee is investigating a multitude of charges against Charlie Rangel, the Chairman of the House Ways & Means Committee. So far, they have only taken action on the most innocuous charge, relating to a corporation-sponsored junket to the Caribbean, and they have admonished Rangel. Look for him to get slammed when they discuss the major charges, including cheating on taxes and using rent-controlled apartments illegally as campaign offices.
There seems to be a bit of controversy over the new logo of the Department of Defense’s new Missile Defense Agency. The new logo seems to be made up of two main elements. There’s the omnipresent campaign logo of The Chosen One and the star and crescent moon of Islam. Why does he keep up this charade of not being a muslim?
When a retired Admiral of the United States Navy publicly admits that the Administration has committed a felony that is an impeachable offense, why doesn’t the media make mention of it, the Justice Department investigate it, and the House and Senate hold hearings on it? Oh, silly Crawfish forgot for a moment that this is a DEMOCRAT Administration instead of the Bush White House. You see, my dear readers, retired Admiral (and Congresscritter) Joe Sestak was interviewed recently, and he just happened to mention that the White House offered him a high position in the Administration, possibly Secretary of the Navy, if he would just drop his Democratic primary challenge to Arlen S.P.E.C.T.R.E. That’s a violation of 18 USC Section 211, and it is not the first time this Administration has done so. Where do they think they are? Chicago?
Wow! According to a new poll released by CNN, 56% of Americans say that the federal government is too big and threatens the rights of the citizens. Since that is a CNN poll, the actual number is probably closer to 60%.
The racist, vulgar, anti-American, marxist-leninist Van Jones is going to be honored as an “American Treasure” by the racist, vulgar, anti-American, socialist NAACP at their “Image Awards”. Despite all of the evidence presented in his own words, writings, associations, and actions, Jones’ supporters still say he’s a great man that has been smeared with lies.
The Canadian women’s hockey team won the gold medal by defeating the US 2-0. That’s not big news, as it was expected. The Canadian team celebrated on the ice after the fans had left, and their celebration is causing a controversy. The Crawfish says, “Party on, girls! You deserved it!”
What in the wide, wide world of sports is going on here? The Anointed One is now throwing our greatest ally under the bus, while cozying up to the muslims, Chavez, and any other leftist or anti-American he can find? Why isn’t this news being shouted from the rooftops (or at least MENTIONED by the lamestream media)?
How can I get a gig like this? A guy gets FIRED from his job, and then 8 months later gets hired back as a consultant for about $3,000.00 an hour. He’ll make more in a month of working a whopping 20 hours than I will working full time. Oh, never mind. He was fired from Government Motors by Obama and hired back by Obama (not officially, but Obama DOES control that company now).
Y’all ain’t gonna believe this one, but the Tea Party Movement has spread even farther afield than any of us imagined. The Conservative Party in Britain is throwing a Tea Party rally of their own in Brighton this Saturday!
Who knew? There really is a “hockey stick” style graph dealing with man-made Glo-Bull Warming that is accurate!
