"Obama's nominees are far, far, far left."
Who, and how?
The Republicans under the tutelage of Mitch McTurtle attempted to govern by obstruction & sabotage. They then put this destructive creativity to work by campaigning that government doesn’t work. And for a large segment of the population, such propaganda was quite effective.
But - they got cocky, tied the senate into a political Gordian knot and dared Harry Reid to try to untie it. Thankfully he did.
It (the nuclear option) only applies to most nominees — it doesn’t cover the nominees to the Supreme Court or legislation.
In case you’re interested.
Filibusters of nominees: Eisenhower 0, Kennedy 0, Johnson 0, Nixon 0, Ford 0, Carter 2, Bush I 0, Clinton 9, Bush II 7, Obama 44.
See anything slightly peculiar?
Nice one today Clay.
Harry Reid finally called out the Republicans on their never ending (and oxymoronic) ‘silent filibuster’ . Real filibusters (which are pretty rare) remain unaffected. Republican official policy of obstructionism Über Alles isn’t about Obama’s nominees per se, but that he’s tried to nominate anyone at all.
This then re-enforces the intent of Article II, Section 2, Clause 2 of the US Constitution (not Republicans wishful interpretation), which clearly states that the Senate’s obligation of advice and consent is based on majority support, not super majority support.
Turtle Man McConnell and his reptilian contemporary’s got what they deserved.
Come on now! Try to tell us all, 'Ooh we just HATE majority rule. It's sooo gauche ---- and then use everything in your (dirty tricks)playbook to gain the majority next year & in 2016.
Shh --- Shh, What’s that sound? It is the sound of babies crying in the distance.
It's elitist leftist Vocabulistic sorcery PlainTruth.
”Nothing worse than an elitist leftist.”
Sure there is...
Annoying hand painted sandwich board bellowers - right next to you when you get the red light.
Oh, sorry Jesse,
The "slack jawed mullet cut trailer dad" bit cut a little to close to home did it?
And yes, I would like fries with that.
I have to admit Zableedofisterix, your scenario. ”Obama rolls in the tanks to seize all the Walmarts” is absolutely fabulous.
Sometimes I just can’t help myself, so...
I can just picture it. M-1’s crashing into your local WalMart parking lot – honking wildly – Obama’s head sticking out on top of the turret with that big folksy smile. Fat women in electric scooters whizzing around to avoid being crushed like the lines of shopping carts being tossed and flattened before them. Pajama wearing mothers and wailing kids with half eaten candy bars dangling from their mouths, in stunned disbelief, are unable to move.
Stopping about 50 meters in front of the main entrance Obama barks the command. BIDEN Obama care round – LOAD. A few seconds later he hears - UP! FIRE!! Instead of a mighty BOOM, there is only a muffled boop. The round goes about 5 meters and is now rolling around into a cart corral. Mmm..sh!t! BIDEN -Propaganda round -LOAD NOW! A few seconds later he hears – UP again. BOOM – direct hit thru the big star. He looks back down inside the turret. "Who Aimed that shot?"
Meanwhile Hillary’s tank is performing a flanking maneuver around the side of the building at the auto service center. Up over a berm the Abrams roars. But what’s this!? There seems to be a struggle in the hatch. She and McCain are fighting over the 50 cal. McCain can’t lift his arms high enough, so the enraged blonde harridan grabs Ma Deuce. Seeing a group of slack jawed mullet cut stars & bars wearing trailer dads by the service bays, she opens up – spraying bullets everywhere. McCain yells out, Hillary! You have to AIM the damn thing!! To which she loudly snarls, What "Difference Does It Make?"
And then they all go to McDonald's.
In the Capital yesterday, things got a little testy during an impromptu discussion about unemployment with John Boehner and a couple of pesky Democratic house members when the speaker (very annoyed) accidently blurted out:
"I don't know how many times I have to tell you people. I don't give a FU#K about jobs"!!
C’mon all you cranky consumers
Wal Mart has entirely too much comedic value to waste time arguing whether Maximus is an ex black slave owing confederate commie church building dictatorial fascist – with leather! Or I’m a Lee Harvey Oswald Che’ Guevara Saul Alinsky Mexican loving burrito eater. Or Jesse’s a trout snapping van camping truck diving rifle jammer. Or wasting time wondering when PlainTruth will start a crying jag because the cartoon isn’t about Obama.
NO I SAY!
Let’s kill two birds with one stone.
For all you die hard Republicans - that for the life of them cannot understand how Obama could ever have been re-elected. Go to Wal Mart, (In your jammie's of course)--- You'll know!
For Democrats. Their unspoken motto is:
We hate it, but we shop here.
Anyone up for a game of Wal Mart bingo?
