Perhaps you should follow your own advice. I treat you as you treat me. the "/sniff sniff" is yours after all.
The relationship to what? The two bills? I'm not complaining, I'm clarifying for you as you obviously didn't even read the OP before launching into your assault. The OP was regarding the FY2009 Ominbus spending bill, you linked a video to the stimulus bill and went on the attack. You were corrected three or four times about this before you realized your mistake. Why are you backing up and going on the attack after already realizing you were caught?
I am at a loss as to what the hell you are talking about now. Obama promised no earmarks, while I linked him saying it about a different bill, it in no way diminishes the fact that he promise to cut this wasteful spending...
I can't make it any simpler for you, sorry.
He's a politician, I don't expect him not to break his campaign promises. If his lips are moving he's probably lying. "Read my ilps!" It's nothing new. Both he and McCain were selling us a bill of goods on earmarks. They are around one percent of the total budget....OOHHHHHH huge fight against wasteful spending there. I don't care about earmark reform because it's a political ruse to take the focus off our governments inefficiency and mismanagement of much larger spending issues.
Well it's called "integrity", both of these canidates lied. I find your "because everyone does it" as lacking in moral character.
Well here you are being deliberately insulting to me. I think I clearly stated I did not know if he had ever promised to end earmarks, in fact your own article doesn't cite him "ending earmarks." It says he promised to reduce them to 1994 levels. I also found where he said he would not offer earmarks himself as a Senator and he would reduce earmarks. Now, can you show me where he promised to end ear marks? Please? It's your argument and you are beating me up over it. You can however continue to insult me all you like.
You spend your forum life insulting me up here. I find your refusal to see facts rather humerous. Sorry you find that insulting.
No, stop and please read...really read....what I posted. I've asked for evidence that Obama said he would end all earmarks. Please show that first. So let me ask you something. You have said he promised to end earmarks, now you are saying he promised to take a scalpel to it. Which one is it? Or did he make both promises. The scalpel comment I remember, and it's inline with his promise to reduce earmarks to 1994 levels and fight pork (he obviously isn't doing that with this bill).
Oh boy, the semantics game...
He said both, see my new link, I have a bunch of them.... I am just letting you have the rope a little at a time. It was fun last time, so why the hell not right lerxst.
Well your own link in no way shows any promise by him to end earmarks. So rather than blatantly insult me, why don't you go find us some actual evidence of him promising to end all earmarks. Remember, this is your case, not mine. I pointed out that he promised not to offer earmarks as a Senator during his campaign. Which he kept. He promised to "reduce" earmarks to 1994 levels, which is included in the article you followed up with. He is probably going to fail this as well should he ever see the actual bill.
You can drop the insults anytime and focus on the issues. You have some substantiating to do. I'll wait.
Are you going to complain in each and every post you make to me? Please let me know, thanks!
