Grumble.

Charlie (Colorado)

Well, I'm back to my old avatar. That's the first cheery thing this morning.

Barry Dauphin

Well, I'm back to my old avatar.

Valerie Jarrett interprets that as a sign Iran will back down.

Jim Glass

How about more Krugman versus Krugman on the debt?

PK yesterday:

"Correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t remember a lot of stories [in 2003] calling that spike in rates a sign of imminent US bankruptcy."

PK in 2003:

"... last week I switched to a fixed-rate mortgage. It means higher monthly payments, but I'm terrified about what will happen to interest rates once financial markets wake up to the implications of skyrocketing budget deficits...

"But what's really scary, what makes a fixed-rate mortgage seem like such a good idea, is the looming threat to the federal government's solvency..."

The man is still champion!

Cecil Turner

It's all perrfectly consistent, Jim. Left unsaid is that it's only a problem if a Republican is in the White House. (Kinda like the homeless problem.) You just need to get your mind right.

Jim Ryan

KLo says Crist didn't rule out running as an independent. We have some great candidates for GOP nom against Perriello here in VA-5, some of whom won't rule out running as an independent if a RINO gets the nom (namely the RNC's fave Robert Hurt who is not obviously a RINO.)

A Dem House and Senate is is then!

Strawman Cometh

I would never act on it, but I have to confess I've had this impulse.

MoodyBlu

Attended my 3rd Moody Blues concert last night. Thanks for the memories guys, but it's time to hang it up. I'll have to find other means to relive my youth. The Moodies just made me feel old(er).

Jack is Back!

Charlie Crist hasn't a prayer. I already have my Rubio bumper sticker as do thousands here in Florida. Have yet to see a Crist bumper sticker. You'd think all those people who voted for him as Governor or Obama as POTUS would be plastering them on every Subaru Outback and Prius out there.

If he runs as and indy he takes votes away from Meek not Rubio and his own internals are telling him that. He is also running out (or is out) of money and Rubio is raking it in.

To this day, Crist refuses to acknowledge that his presence on stage in Tampa with The Won and giving him the big welcome hug had anything to do with his drop in the polls. Another tone deaf, irresponsible politician, Florida style.

By 52% to 30%, voters believe members of the Tea Party have a better understanding of the issues facing the country than members of congress.

Danube of Thought

One of the great finds of the young century, Jim Glass. Does anyone have any ideas how to a) publiciciz it, and b) put it in Krugman's face?

bio mom

???I thought Crist said he would not run independent?? Said he will support the R candidate if he loses the primary.

They really gotta ramp the demonization up now, then.

Jim Ryan

This is one of those "have a nice day" posts. From one of the links to the guy's own blog:

Then it is over. We either drastically reduce the welfare state (Social Security, Medicare, the new healthcare program, etc.) or resort to printing money to fund it. Either entitlements are cut drastically or hyperinflation appears. We will be either Greece on steroids or Weimar Germany. Neither choice is a good one. That is what happens when problems are ignored and allowed to grow beyond manageable bounds.
Have a nice day.

Jack is Back!

Jim Glass,

You should write a short letter to the editor of NYT's and point out his "little" discrepancy in memory and/or truth. See if they publish it.

But then the NYT's is famous for contradicting itself depending on who or what party is in control of the nation.
Krugman is just living up to those high standards of anticipation that have been set by the Times.

JM Hanes

More goodies from Rasmussen: A comparison of this pair of stats on the By the Numbers page seems modestly encouraging. Check out the rankings on important issues, and then the issue by issue favorables of Republicans vs. Dems. On the same page, Obama's issue favorables don't look very good in this context either, but I was stunned enough by the percentages on the ethics question to wonder about Rasmussen's demographics. Unfortunately you have to pay for the crosstabs.

Rasmussen Numbers

Elsewhere at Ras, 49% favor state lawsuits against Healthcare Plan (37% against) and 55% favor repeal (42% oppose). Keepin' hope alive since March 23rd!

Matt Crandall

My new meme:

"One healthcare horror story is a tragedy; a million healthcare horror stories is Obamacare."

Proposed civil disobediance. "Phony Doctor Visit Day" -- everyone who hates this new health bill calls and makes a Dr's appt on the same day. It's a denial of service attack on the health care system. If it works, maybe we should start doing it every day until this thing is repealed.

Also - just general ornery-ness. I've decided to stop donating blood. In the immortal words of DailyKos, fuck 'em!

Letters to the NY Times are a waste of time. They need to be lampooned--and hard--from the outside.

Jim Glass,

LOL @ the idea that the Duranty Times would publish anything that doesn't confirm the narrative. It's not like there's some inner conscience that's struggling to be exposed. They hate us, plain and simple.

Pagar

"By the numbers"

I've been hearing about/watching/ politics for over seventy years now. I have never ever figured out why any American would trust a Democrat on any issue.

Extraneus

And those ethics/corruption nums indicate that if Republicans get control of either house come November, it's bring on the hearings time.

MarkO

Nothing would be better than to have a conservative company purchase one of the three networks and make the news department tell the truth.

Danube of Thought

Here's hoping that when those execs show up on April 21st they'll bring their spines with them. If so, that'll be a first.

I hadn't realized that they're appearing before a subcommittee chaired by none other than Bart Stupak, who will get yet more face time on the tube. Not sure he wants it this time. Bryon York has it here.

Melinda Romanoff

Going to meet ManTran in a few minutes, talk to you all later.

Pagar

As the Democrats try to move from healthcare fraud to immigration fraud, it may be worth repeating This.


IF YOU CROSS THE NORTH KOREAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU GET 12 YEARS HARD LABOR.

Jim Ryan

He's losing 75% of Congress. Cracks are appearing in the foundation. What percentage of the 75% are beginning to realize that Obama isn't a well man?

JM Hanes

Now that's poetic irony, isn't it, DoT?

Extraneus:

"And those ethics/corruption nums indicate that if Republicans get control of either house come November, it's bring on the hearings time."

Actually, given those numbers, I think they can skip the hearings and concentrate on not screwing up themselves for a change. The general public hates that tit for tat, partisan, stuff, and I have to admit that I, for one, have had it up to the gills with backward looking politics.

Danube of Thought

The twit Christopher Buckley seems to be trying to become another Ron Reagan. "I myself haven't done jack shit, but I know my father would say blah blah blah..."

MarkO

Christopher Buckley rather easily humiliated his dad and mom in his book. How do you credit the opinions of someone who would do that?

JM Hanes

DoT:

In case you didn't see it, I left instructions for taking screenshots on a Mac, over in the Trust Fund thread.

Al Asad

From Tim Murphy:

"In keeping with the "lost in the desert" theme, the Tea Partiers I've spoken with remain united in opposition but totally scattershot in how to set things right. One man suggests Paul Ryan. Another Scott Brown. And of course, Governor Palin. To them, the movement’s apparent contradictions aren't flaws; they're signs of free will. I asked a supporter of J.D. Hayworth, the talk show host who's challenging John McCain from the right (an increasingly difficult task) in Arizona's GOP primary, whether he was dismayed that his other hero, Palin, had endorsed the traitor McCain.

"We don’t march in lockstep," he responded. "We're not Democrats.""

Now, that's a Mad Hatter Tea Party for you.
Tea-baggers seem to have an apocalyptic view of their own political future. It's nice when self-fulfilling prophecy unfolds before one's eyes. But it is sad when you lose a worthy opponent. It's hard to measure progress, when the bad guys kick themselves out of town.

JM Hanes

Sometimes, the idea of history repeating itself doesn't seem all bad: On this day in 1834 the US Senate voted to censure President Jackson for the removal of federal deposits from the Bank of the United States.

narciso

He stepped out on his wife, the daughter of an aide to a former employer, CIA man Donald

judgement.

Jim Ryan, Read the KLo post again. Crist DID rule out an independent run.

Oops! Thanks for the correction.

"But it is sad when you lose a worthy opponent."

I really detest passive-aggressive posters. Would it hurt you to be honest?

Hi there, Al! Think we can outsource the Tea Parties to make them commercially viable?

bio mom

Obama is in Afghanistan.

Porchlight

WaPo poll has lots of carpy news for Dems and that's even after they increased the Dem party ID four points since they last ran the poll in February.

Imagine the numbers with a realistic ID split, or even just with the split they used the last time.

Al Asad

"Hear anything from the Phony Marine today?"

Just that you are the leading contender to
retain the coveted title "JOM's Favorite Trollop"

Danube of Thought

Thanks, JMH. I'll give it a try.

Al Asad

"I really detest passive-aggressive posters"

It's also sad when some lack the intelligence to recognize rhetorical questions, or the ability to separate sarcasm from passive-aggression.

bgates

When I think of Congressional hearings, I think of the way Norm Coleman coolly induced George Galloway to make several outrageous statements that will lead directly to perjury charges, any day now.

What are hearings supposed to accomplish anyway? I'd envision them going something like this:

Administration Official: "And then President Obama told us to roam around Georgetown at night and dig up dead pets, because Satan told him that consuming their essence would give him the power to impose Communism on the United States. I found one kitten that was so fresh it wasn't even rigid yet, and-"

Republican Congressman: "Frankly, sir, I'm less interested in the details of the kitten than I am in this Satanic Communism business."

Headline the Next Day: "Republicans 'Not Interested' in Dead Kitten; 'I Loved Mr Snuggles,' Says Sobbing Child"

They've got thousands of pages of bad laws to repeal.

The 4 questions I vaguely remember from Larry King's Interview of Snoop Dog last evening:

1) (Larry King) How is Obama doing?

(Snoop): Magnificent.

2) (Larry King) What about Tiger Wood's?

(Snoop): Good people can make mistakes, especially after they watch "Girls Gone Wild number 87", which they can order back copies of on video from San Quentin Films, 99-502, for 23 Dollars COD. Do you want me to comment on the Pope?"

3) (Larry King) Not necessarily Snoopdog. More important, Is Lady Gaga the next Michael Jackson?

(Snoop's entourage)---"WTF"!--

(Snoop) "Calm down"

(Snoops entourage): "Even when he says dumb shit like that?"

(Snoop) "Especially when he says dumb shit like that."

4) (Larry King): Can I ">http://www.popeater.com/2010/03/24/photos-larry-king-snoop-dogg/"> drive your yellow convertible caddie? If we wait long enuff' maybe Christianne Amanpor will finally flash us a glimpse of her forehead beneath her bangs, and that'd be hot---Angie Dickenson hot! Hubba hubba.

Here's why he went. 46/46 for Obama in gallup today.

Ignatz

Cleo's 12:34 is remarkable for what it reveals.
I read the body of it thinking it revealed a healthy, tolerant debate taking place within the Tea Party.
Cleo reads a healthy, tolerant debate as an insufficiency of close minded, intolerant, lock stepping conformity, as invariably displayed by the left.
Not only is the former a measure of the intellectual health of a movement and the latter a measure of its sclerosis, the free wheeling debate within the tea party would seem to argue rather persuasively against cleo and the other fembot leftys' tiresome, projected meme of close minded intolerance on the right.
Perhaps if cleo weren't so preoccupied with getting off what he thinks are brilliant semantic zingers which invariably land in the ditch, he might devote a tad bit of time to forming a coherent thought.

Jane says obamasucks

KLo says Crist didn't rule out running as an independent.

That's not how I heard it. I think he did rule it out.

I'm reading Rove's book: After Bush lost NH Laura told him:

"If you want to win, don't let them define you".

We tea partiers need to heed that advice.

narciso

Lol, daddy, Laura Ingraham's "Is Larry King
Alive" seems more apt.

Compelling you to comment........one post at a time.

Jim Ryan

My mistake reading KLo's post, Jane. Bio mom corrected me.

But my favorite candidate running against Perriello here in VA-5 told me in a lengthy chat last week that he would rather see Perriello re-elected than see what he takes to be a RINO beat Perriello. For that reason, he says he will run as an independent if the perceived RINO get the nom, although he is otherwise excellent. And for that reason, I no longer support him for the nom. There is a lot of inside baseball/hurt feelings between the rank and file Republicans and the RNC down here. The result may be a re-elected Perriello.

Ignatz

Don't know if this has been linked but here is Yuval Levin's take on Obamacare and the fiscal disaster it portends. About as clear as it gets and well worth the read.

Danube of Thought

By God, am I loving the post-healthcare bounce.
The Plan is at -9 at Pollster.com; the one is 47% in the RCP average and underwater by 16 in Raz's Index.

Second prize is two healthcare bounces.

What are the Rinoish characteristics that he sees, if he's for cap n trade, and mandated healthcare, maybe, but otherwise

Mike, at Cold Fury, on the Social Democrat's demonization of the Right (they, they are threatening us, those evil RETHUGLICANS who elected BOOOOOOSH! and we just sat there for 8 years, quiet as church mice, never saying or complaining one little bit, oh no, we were perfect little citizens)...

Libs want to play hardball? Well, good; let’s sharpen our spikes and go after them like a nation of Ty Cobbs. In this game, the fate of our former Constitutional Republic is at stake. Winning isn’t everything; it’s the only thing. And the Democrat Socialists proved a long time ago that, in the words of one of their typically corrupt, scum-slathered heroes just last week, there are no rules.

Some of us have been negligent and inattentive to our duty; the GOP has been all but useless, trying to maintain an above-the-fray, dignified appearance — to keep from dirtying their expensive suits during a knife-fight — while the nation was being attacked and brought to its knees by the enemy within. That seems to be finally turning around, and it’s about damned time. More, and faster, please.

We know what the Left did for those 8 years, we watched as they threatened, cajoled, protested, burned and shat on our flags, spit on our troops, marched and whined and acted like we were getting ready to round 'em up and put 'em in concentration camps.

Screw 'em all, these leftists and their whining. They've done more damage to this nation than any Republican ever, with their handouts and social entitlements that will bankrupt us; with their overreaction to invisible 'global warming' threats they'll kill our industries.

Fuck dat. We've had just about enough. Come November, the ballot box. Until then, we have to find and inform the real Americans.

Danube of Thought

I'm shocked, shocked:

"After a year of crippling delays, President Barack Obama’s $5 billion program to install weather-tight windows and doors has retrofitted a fraction of homes and created far fewer construction jobs than expected."

Well, one reason for all of this is that the law requires that the jobs go out to companies charging the "prevailing wage," and there is a lot of green-eye-shade government work involved in determining just what that is.

But not to worry: they'll run your healthcare for you just fine.

Narciso, he says Hurt will vote whichever way the wind blows and has anecdote and scuttlebut to support that. Hurt voted for a tax increase a time or two. There is a lot of hurt feelings, like I said, about the RNC anointing its pick. It's to bad because my fave really is otherwise excellent. Very successful businessman, raised in abject poverty, smart, commonsense, says slash the budget, etc. Great. But I can't support him.

Okay. Obama just passed the most unpopular legislation in the past 25 years. Now he is out trying to sell himself like that obnoxious Aussie on late night television.

Next, we're told he wants to reform Wall Street, immigration, energy, Campaign finance, and the right to arm bears. Anybody getting the drift of this scumbag yet?

He's going to go down as the destroyer of the American Experiment. Stalin couldn't do it, Hitler and Tojo couldn't do it. The Depression couldn't do it.The Civil War couldn't do it.

He has a propaganda machine that churns out just enough plausible bullshit to keep the mushy middle and left hypnotized by the shiny ball while he's taking down the whole of our Constitutional system.

Ignatz- Thanks for linking that article.

That's the kind of analysis that can get everyone's attention.

Wait until the law firms that are gleeful at an increase in business from all the new regulation see the increases in the firm's health insurance coverage premiums.

Nothing like real increases in cost manifested in the paycheck to make even confirmed libs less strident that this will be great.

Well, I will make an exception and say this:

As you have noticed, you can post here as freely as you like.

If I tried to post at DKos, HuffPo, or other lefty blogs, I would be banned and all my comments deleted.

Anybody undecided politically who read the blog would be absolutely unable to detect that any debate had happened, that any inconvenient fact had been posted, or that any alternative view had been stated.

I know this because it's happened to me, and I am sure that others here can attest to similar experiences.

There is rather a large difference between ignoring a tiresome and insulting person (which you are) and out-and-out suppression of opposing views.

Happy Birthday Al Asad!!!!!!!!!!!!!11!1!!!1!!

This gives a better view of the economic tide
we're facing now, in the LUN

Rick Ballard

"Anyone know the approximate percentage of private sector employees v public sector employees?"

The actual numbers are here. The denominator of 135,185,230 does not include self-employed or military and "Federal, state, and local government" at 9,748,080 does not include education. Education would add 12,655,780 (less the private component which would account for about 10% of the total). The self-employed and active military total roughly 12 million.

Al Asad

"Anybody undecided politically who read the blog would be absolutely unable to detect that any debate had happened, that any inconvenient fact had been posted, or that any alternative view had been stated."

Ignatz

--I am saying Tea-baggers are unified, but can't find an acceptable leader, therefore facing extinction. Credulity is long gone, maybe irretrievable.--

Well then it is your reading comprehension that needs work.
Your own citation said they were only united in what they are opposed to but not in what they are in favor of. Which is entirely consistent with what I said; a healthy debate is seen as a weakness by you and a strength by me.
The only language actually susceptible to comprehension by an outside party in your comment was Mr. Murphy's. Yours was the usual unjustifiably smirking, semantic, gibberish which some authority figure in your formative years must have, unfortunately, complimented you on.

bio mom

Did I mention, Obama 46/46 in gallup today!!

Janet the Luddite

LUN is the video of when Condoleezza Rice was attacked by the Code Pink lunatics. Really, she and the entire Bush administration were such class acts compared to these thugs we've got now.
I don't remember seeing Miss Rice on news programs accusing Dems of being racists. Or the media having fits over the racism and hatred of the Democrats.
Matt is exactly right "He has a propaganda machine".

Jim Ryan

Ha!

Jack is Back!

Bio Mom,

I never said he would run as an Indy but only that if he did he would take votes away from Meek since he is more popular with Dems than Indies or Repubs.

I don't trust Charlie like I don't trust any RINO and he is a RINO, in my opinion. His radio ads about how he is the fiscal conservative and so darn concerned about debt and deficits when he was the big debt giver's cheerleader tells me his untrustworthy with my kid's financial future.

Pofarmer

Been doing a little digging in Title IX of the health care bill as passed. If you are interested in how they intend to fund all this stuff, this is where it's at.

For those with HSA's.

Anything your employer contributes they are gonna tax. Anything you don't use they are gonna tax again at 20%. And,they are limiting the amounts and contributions.

Yeah, this is all about lowering the cost of healthcare.

BTW this is all in sections 9004-9005.

Bad is dead.

Hilarious, 'doomed to extinction from lack of a leader'. A 'Dear Leader' you mean? And smarter? Well, sicker if that delusion is any measure.

LUN for the cagematch into Round 28 and getting BETTER. Scroll to 'Global Average Temperature. If you don't want to read 900 plus comments, just read backwards from the end.

You got it JiB, whatever Crist says is subject to revision. As for the HSA, I was wondering why the Times was making such a big deal about them surviving, not surprisingly
they never read the bill either, or they did
and they're lying, take your pick

Pofarmer

The more I look at this "healthcare" bill, the worse it gets.

Danube of Thought

For me, the choice between a Dem and a RINO is as clear as that between a RINO and an actual R. Say what you will about the RINO, he caucuses with the R's, and he counts as much as an R does when it comes to determining who gets to be speaker, who gets what committees, and a lot more.

For anyone who favors a third-party candidate--ever--I urge yout to consider that if that fool libertarian hadn't run for the Montana senate seat in '06, we would never have had a filibuster-proof Dem senate.

And of course if deranged madman Ralph Nader hadn't run in Fla. in 2000, deranged madman Al Gore would have become president.

qrstuv

And if Perot hadn't run in '92, we probably would not have had Clinton.

Danube of Thought

I dunno about that in 1992. The conventional wisdom is that Perot swung the election, but ever single poll I saw had Bubba winning either way.

Pagar

"The more I look at this "healthcare" bill, the worse it gets."

The bill is set up exactly the way the Communists wanted It.

"Medicaid expansion could potentially break the budgets of many states around the country."

"Popular pressure could then be mobilized to force drastic federal intervention to deal with the ensuing crisis, possibly including the implementation of single payer."

They have set the bill up to vacuum up every dollar in the US. The same way Castro and Chavez are doing it, people who have no funds have a much harder time overthrowing communist regimes.

Thanks, Janet. The shelf life of those instructions in my brain is woefully short.
DoT, I don't need a brain, because I've got Stickies. This is an app on every mac (/Applications/Stickies.app) that acts like a post-it note. Whenever you need to stash some factoid somewhere, open up a new stickie and just type. I use it for everything from directions for running software, to frequent flyer numbers for everyone in the family, phone numbers, usernames and passwords, girl scout cookie transaction IDs, the people on my prayer list, tax deductions...
