    Yes, that was seriously released by the Republicans. Avoiding for a second that if I or any other professional gave a client something that crap I'd be laughed out of the pitch, lets just conduct an analysis.

    So what's it saying?

    Step 1: Reform (actually "Reforms", good job on the typo) medicare and medicaid.

    Step 2: Universal access to affordable healthcare

    Step 3: Collect Underpants

    Step 4: Profit!

    This is pathetic.

    Dear Republican Party,

    I am available for all your graphic design needs. I don't suck, as whoever you're employing currently does. I cannot help you with the ****tiness of your content, but I can present it in a coherent manner (at least as coherent as its general incoherence allows).
    I'd like to see you include "collecting underpants" as that would make the chart complete.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Hmmmm...AFAICT President Obama was talking about a blueprint, whereas Boehner said they were introducing a detailed plan.

    "Two nights ago, the president said, 'We haven't seen a budget yet out of the Republicans.' Well, that's not true, because here it is, Mr. President," Boehner told reporters. "Today, we're introducing a detailed 'Road to Recovery' plan and our plan curbs spending, creates jobs, and cuts taxes while controlling the debt."

    Did someone jump the gun? Who's in charge?

    Darn...where's that GOP leadership poll when ya need it...LOL

    But he [Paul Ryan] and [Eric] Cantor were reportedly told by Boehner and Republican Conference Chairman Mike Pence (R-Ind.) they needed to move more quickly to counter Democrats' charge they were becoming the "Party of No," according to House GOP staffers.

    [...]

    "The problem is that somewhere along the line, someone got the mistaken impression that we were going to roll out a budget alternative today," he said. "What we all signed off on was a preview—the real [alternative] is coming next week."

    Still, when he was asked what purpose today's preview served, Ryan directed me to Pence's office: "You've got to ask the conference this question, I can't answer that question."

    The leadership appeared united a press conference this afternoon, with Pence and Boehner holding copies of blue-jacketed budget outline as photographers clicked away.

    Some clever liberal on Kos already beat me to the joke:

    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    Re: House GOP releases budget blueprint

    Did anyone notice that they rescheduled their release to Wednesday?

    They came in, ****ted on Obama and then when pressed for actual content they told us that it'd come later. This is a excellent metaphor for the entire Republican strategy.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    Congratulations Republicans, you've just entered humor (that thing liberals are always going on about). Sadly you're being laughed at, rather than with.

    This is the new internet macro.

    Does that mean I should take out the original?

    I guess the original isn't so much funny as tragic and retarded.

    I CAN HAS BUDGET NOW?

    The only number in their entire "plan" was to give gigantic tax cuts to rich Americans! Cutting from 35% to 25% is outrageously STUPID, neigh, RETARDED!

    The only thing the party of NO can ever suggest are tax cuts and of course, "DRILL BABY DRILL."

    How did that strategy work out for the Party of No last Fall? Maybe we should ask President McCain and Vice President Palin?

    It's not really what works best for the party or not, its what will pay our debts while still allowing the government to function at a reasonable level.
