If that is indeed the case, then I'm siding with Dems on this one. The tornadoes and Irene were extraordinarily damaging and one of the things I pay taxes to support is help for my fellow Americans when something like this happens.

    The House-ruld GOP voted down a GOP-sponsored budget?

    wow, there may be some light at the end of the tunnel. Obama should totally include this as part of his campaign message.

    He cant...the Congressional Black Congress has already declared the Tea Party republicans as a bunch of hate filled racists that want to see black people hanging from trees. Kinda tough to spin that beeeeyotch into a positive now, aint it.

    correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't it only ONE member of the CBC who said this, and this person isn't even the chairman of the caucus?

    One said that, another said they could all go to hell, several others continue to make derogatry comments about them...and hey...when you want to tout their merits because of a fiscally conservative vote, and members of your party are suggesting they are nothing more than a lynch mob...BECAUSE of their fiscally conservative votes that wont allow you to spend money like crack whores...well...maybe you ought to just let this one go...

    And if Im not mistaken...several liberal minded folks here made derogatory comments about the Tea PArty folks holding the country hostage...BECAUSE of their fiscally conservative votes that you now are whoot whoot in about...

    Like I said man...just walk away...

    The conservatives are who voted against this bill. Not for the reasons you would likely support but it was they they killed it. Because of their promise to not pass anything not paid for.

    ah, so you admit the CBC didn't officially say that, and the comments don't even represent the views of the chairman?

    I congratulate you for your honesty.

    Ive never suggested it was. Nor are the hate filled comments limited by members of the CBC.

    lets have MORE fun with semantics!

    or not. It does bore me so.

    The simple fact is it wont work for Obama to tout this sudden spirit of cooperation when it is the democrats that joined the Tea Party vote against the spending bill. The Tea Party republicans have maintained a consistent position on fiscal accountability, both during the spending cap debate and during this spending legislation. In this instance it is the democrats playing politics.
