The hypocrisy in Washington is astounding
By Neal Boortz

The hypocrisy in Washington is astounding. It is as if they have not yet realized that we now have computers and the Internet we can use to refresh our memories on their past actions and comments.  Example?  This little goodie from none other than Harry Reid.  Take a look at what he had to say on the floor of the Senate in 2006 …
How can the Republican majority in this Congress explain to their constituents that trillions of dollars in new debt is good for our economy? How can they explain that they think it’s fair to force our children, our grandchildren, our great grandchildren to finance this debt through higher taxes? That’s what it will have to be. Why is it right to increase our nation’s dependence on foreign creditors?
Let’s stop right there for a moment to bask in the glory of the fact that Harry Reid questions the “fairness” of financing our debt through tax increases.
They should explain this. Maybe they can convince the public they’re right. I doubt it. Because most Americans know that increasing debt is the last thing we should be doing. After all, I repeat, the Baby Boomers are about to retire. Under the circumstances, any credible economist would tell you we should be reducing debt, not increasing it.  Democrats won’t be making argument to supper this legalization, which will weaken our country. .”
Under the circumstances?  In 2006, George Bush was looking at a $248 billion deficit, which is a lot considering it was just $158 billion in 2002.  Now under Barack Obama we have seen those numbers top $1 trillion.  I’m not saying that George Bush is not to blame here.  The guy is a hero to those who love big government.  But if Bush is a hero, that would make Barack Obama a superhero.

In 1984, debt debate looked different to Biden, GOP

With time running out on a looming debt crisis, the president and his allies in the Senate are fighting to win a raise in the government’s borrowing limit, only to be stymied by a minority insisting that a spending freeze be part of the deal.
Sounds like present day, but it was October 1984 — when the partisan roles were reversed. Republicans controlled the White House and the Senate, while Democrats controlled the House. Democrats also could sustain filibusters in the Senate and were balking at raising the debt ceiling unless it was attached to big spending cuts
That year, Democrats defeated a debt-limit increase by voting it down in the Senate and forcing Republican leaders to send Air Force planes — at a cost of more than $4,000 in taxpayer money — to collect absent senators and rush them back to Washington for a revote that ultimately passed.
One of the leaders of that 1984 Democratic revolt — a man who tried to impose a spending freeze and fought for a smaller debt increase than President Reagan wanted — was none other than current Vice President Joseph R. Biden, then a senator from Delaware and now President Obama’s right-hand man in negotiations with Congress.
“I must express my protest against continually increasing the debt without taking positive steps to slow its growth. Therefore, I am voting against any further increase in the national debt,” Mr. Biden said in a floor speech just before helping fellow Democrats defeat an increase of $251 billion on a 46-14 vote.
He wanted a smaller rise in the debt limit of $157 billion and seemed to emphasize spending cuts rather than tax increases — a different stance from what he takes as part of the Obama White House.

Mr. Biden’s office declined to comment for this article.

Ann Coulter ‘sick’ of ‘free publicity’ for Maher, misogynist language from Schultz
If you’re keeping score, HBO “Real Time” host Bill Maher has a growing tally of denigrating sexist remarks he has made about former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and GOP presidential hopeful Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann. But what are the motivations for these comments?

According to Ann Coulter, it’s not done in the name of humor. Instead, it is done to intentionally drum up publicity for shows like Maher’s. On Monday night’s “Red Eye,” Coulter questioned why so much time was devoted to these statements from Maher and his guests.

“[I] am sick of this show getting so much free publicity just because they use the f-word, the c-word, say something stupid,” Coulter said. “It is exactly what liberals falsely accuse me of all the time. You just put in that thing about the Jersey Girls so people will complain to get publicity. Well no, all they are saying is ‘I hate Michele Bachman,’ ‘I hate Sarah Palin.’ Except they’re saying, ‘I [expletive] hate Michele Bachmann,’ ‘I [expletive] hate Sarah Palin.’ And then conservative blogs and this show say, ‘Oh, they use the f-word,’ and then they get 8 billion times more viewers. Why aren’t we talking about your show that will lead into this show? It is ‘Five at Five’ or the two-hour feature film, ‘Greg Gutfeld on Fox.’”

Coulter later argued that if these comments with “vulgar words” had not gotten so much traction in the blogosphere, no one would even know about the shows.

Ok I have HBO and I have HBO on Demand and I have NEVER watched a single episode of his show and I don’t fucking understand why anyone who is not high, or at least have a couple of brain cells to rub together would watch that idiots show. Bill Maher is a dickhead and has been a dickhead forever and I don’t understand why people give this guy the time of day.
This kinda reminds me of why I no longer watch Meet the Press. Ever since Tim Russert’s death the show is unwatchable because Gregory sucks ass he is a horrible host and he is so partisan it is annoying. I loved Russert because he did not give a damn who the guest was dude always conducted a fair and tough interview. Now I don’t know if Gregory has gotten any better but I don’t care. We all make choices on what to watch and I decided that if you have a show and you are an idiot I’m not going to help make that host rich. Maher is just stupid and you have to slightly neurotic to tolerate his show, just like folks who watch Olbermann or just about any program on MSNBC. But hey there is no accounting for common sense or intellectual taste.

Rep. West blasts Wasserman Schultz as ‘not a Lady’ in email
A Republican congressman from Florida turned to email on Tuesday to call a Democratic colleague from the state “vile, despicable and cowardly” after she called into question his stance on Medicare during the debate over a spending cap and balanced budget bill before the House.

Rep. Allen West, a first-term Republican from south Florida, wasn’t shy about his online outburst. He sent his peppery email to numerous lawmakers as well as his target, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee.

The subject line of the email: “Unprofessional and Inappropriate Sophomoric Behavior from Wasserman Schultz.”

The e-mail said: “Look, Debbie, I understand that after I departed the House floor you directed your floor speech comments directly towards me. Let me make myself perfectly clear, you want a personal fight, I am happy to oblige. You are the most vile, unprofessional and despicable member of the US House of Representatives. If you have something to say to me, stop being a coward and say it to my face, otherwise, shut the heck up.”

Some Reads also from Boortz
In 1980, after 190 years of federal spending, the national debt was “only” $1 trillion. Now, just 30 years later, it’s sailing past $14 trillion.

Rob Woodall wrote an article about the FairTax and its ability to make America competitive again.

The media is suddenly very concerned about Michele Bachmann’s capabilities as a presidential contender … because she gets migraines. 

Newt Gingrich says that Republicans should have more courage in confronting Barack Obama in the showdown over raising the debt ceiling.

Herman Cain addresses Sheila Jackson Lee’s recent comment about Barack Obama, the deficit battle and his race.

The latest Rasmussen polls show that Obama now earns his lowest level of support yet against a generic Republican candidate in a hypothetical 2012 election matchup.

As recently as 2007 only 5 cents of every dollar spent by the federal government was borrowed. In just four short years, that number has skyrocketed to 43 cents

Bush was terrible when it comes to government spending .. but what if Barack Obama had just stuck to Bush’s spending levels?

Would you be happy with $2 trillion in cuts?  Read this and you may think otherwise.

ObamaCare is supposed to increase health coverage and slow spending. The promises of RomneyCare in Massachusetts were the same. The results?

Rep. Peter King is going to have another hearing later this month on Muslim radicalization in the United States.

Now Michele Bachmann is having to battle media reports that migraines will prevent her from doing her job.
Government education at its finest … Less than one-third of elementary and high school students showed proficiency in geography.

Want some taxpayer waste?  How about $300 million for two Navy ships that have never been used and are now headed for the scrap yard.

Is Herman Cain dooming his campaign?

2012: The End of the World As We Know It

By Peter Ferrara

Like a replicating amoeba, America is pulling apart into two separate cultures. One is strongly committed to the birth of an even more robust, pro-growth, entrepreneurial capitalism. The other thinks Che Guevara and Karl Marx had important social insights relevant to America today, and wants to follow the path of Juan Peron 's Argentina, if not Hugo Chavez's Venezuela. This is the stark choice facing the American people in 2012.

This is also why the vast majority of the American heartland feels more cultural affinity with the people of New Zealand and Australia than with the people of San Francisco and Seattle, at least as reflected by the majority of those two benighted cities. But the replicating amoeba analogy is not apt, because amoebas split into two equal new entities. What the American people are about to demonstrate in 2012 is that the heartland's vision of a booming economy restoring America's traditional world-leading prosperity and superpower might is shared by far more citizens than you might think, and that the long outdated socialist vision of the "progressive" American Left, for whom that traditional American prosperity and superpower status is a moral embarrassment, is fading into oblivion.
