    americans are gullible to believe that hr1 and ryan's budget are real, hard numbers?

    one would have to be out of touch with reality to perceive otherwise

    meanwhile, where's the plan from the party in power, heading into year 3?

    in times like these?

    is the slasher still stumping on ipab and tax hikes on the rich?

    gullibility, anyone?

    leadership?

    I don't think Obama knows what plan B means and if he does, he doesn't know what to do. This man is incompetent.
    Catch me if you can.

    wednesday: Bill Clinton: Brief U.S. Default Might Not Be ‘Calamitous’ - Washington Wire - WSJ

    according to msnbc this morning, chief of staff william big-shoulders daley and nec gene sperling then got to bubba who's taken it all back

    the former president from the dlc is certainly giving the white house some trouble this week

    you heard what he whispered to ryan the morning after erie:

    Bill Clinton confabs with Paul Ryan, warns Dems against doing nothing

    "call me"

    well, half way thru year 3 it certainly appears bubba's bothers are becoming bonafide

    you can this about bubba, say that, but one thing he is NOT is loyal

    he's too ambitious

    remember when his mrs leaked she just couldn't take it anymore, the "indecision," the "amateurs," the folks upstairs who "don't know if today is tuesday or wednesday"

    Obama’s indecision on Libya has pushed Clinton over the edge

    of course loyalty isn't one of the slasher's strong suits either

    ask rev wright

    ask aipac

    republicans will NOT allow this roof to be raised---especially NOT high enough to accomodate november, 2012, the slasher's raison d'etre---WITHOUT major short and longterm cuts as well as REAL structural reform

    medicare, medicaid and social security MUST BE SAVED

    hurry up, harry

    They are gullible if they believe:

    virtually every republican is clear---we will NOT raise the roof UNLESS there are significant FIXES
    Ain't happenin', no way. Anyone taking bets?

    When you put out a budget that only cuts 60 billion when you want to cut trillions, that is a compromise. When you don't eliminate Medicare from existence when that is in fact what you want to do, that is a compromise. The very fact that they started those debates in compromised positions says they compromise. Just think I haven't even went into the process itself yet and they already gave up everything.

    dnc debbie wasserman schultz on face the nation 5 minutes ago:

    "all sides agree there must be 4 trillion dollars in deficit reduction"

    well, that's new

    just 3 months ago the slasher sent forth his budget which actually INCREASED borrowing an obscene TWENTY PERCENT

    which is why it went down in the senate thursday, NINETY SEVEN to ZERO

    dws this morning insists taxes on the rich be on the table

    but 4T worth?

    stay tuned

    but you're gonna have to be real patient

    it's hurryup harry who's holding obama's bucket

    Pure political posturing, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. The Republicans are no more fiscally responsible than the Democrats are.

    As you say, stay tuned. We'll see the debt ceiling raised, with only symbolic cuts. Just wait and see.

    Why is everyone talking about $4 trillion in cuts over a decade? So that no one can be held accountable for not following through with it? Why don't we talk about how much we plan to spend over a decade as well? Or in even longer terms?

    "Well MY plan is to cut 50 quadrillion dollars over the next five centuries..."
