Mitch McConnell "doubling down" on not compromising with Obama.
""Over the past week, some have said it was indelicate of me to suggest that our top political priority over the next two years should be to deny President Obama a second term in office..."But the fact is, if our primary legislative goals are to repeal and replace the health spending bill, to end the bailouts, cut spending and shrink the size and scope of government, the only way to do all these things is to put someone in the White House who won't veto any of these things," the Kentucky Republican will say. "We can hope the president will start listening to the electorate after Tuesday's election. But we can't plan on it."
While Democratic leaders said Republicans should be prepared to compromise to pass legislation, McConnell will make clear that he wants the administration to "move in our direction" if it wants his party's cooperation.
Lets get something straight not compromising is the compromise. This election was the only thing standing between Democrats who are ruining the meaning of the word "progressive" and the point of a real life pitchfork.
Maybe they're trying to save face. Maybe they viewed the election returns through a mirror....
One thing is for sure, they are failing to realize that their hubris over the last two years has been nothing less than nuclear in its damage to what this country is supposed to be.
Conservatives have been ignored, marginalized, laughed at, impersonated as racist, lied about, and forced to say "Vice President Biden" for two long years because Democrats thought their win in 2008 was an affirmation that we wanted them to run our lives for us.
The Tea Party warned them this was wrong, public opinion polls warned them, even the cockroaches were running away from the bomb the Dems were daring the Tea Party to blow.
That the Democrats retain control of the Senate is the blessing (for them) of having only 1/3 of them up for election at a time. Even Obama is on notice that some unknown Republican named "Generic" is beating him in the polls ONLY HALF WAY through his
first only term.
It needs to be understood that Dems have nothing to really bargain with right now. Their agenda has been roundly and unequivocally rejected. November 6, 2012 is going to be National Tissue for Liberals day if they think now is the time for their "enemies" to humbly compromise with THEM.
How else can we make this any clearer? Maybe a telegram will get their attention...
Dear Democrats, STOP
Man up and pay the piper NOW before we take more of your children away.
America's Voters WONT STOP
Thats a weird way to end this, I know, just go with it...thanks.Add a comment
The edits on the profanity are my own...(my comments in yellow)
“I got so obsessed with [C-SPAN] LOL! I'm sure she did that it was kind of interfering with my life. Sarah Palin came on, and I thought, Oh, f**k, this is the end. Because a dumb woman is a dumb woman.” YOU DON'T SAY CHER! On the subject of Arizona governor Jan Brewer, Cher says, “She was worse than Sarah Palin, if that is possible. This woman was like a deer in headlights. She’s got a handle on the services of the state, and I would not let her handle the remote control.”
Read the full article at Vanity Fair here for more gems of Cheracuda wisdom
I'm so glad to get to be able to get insight from pillars of intelligence like Cher. The only thing more artificial than her entire being is the notion that she is smart enough to unleash her intelligence on even the dumbest of magazines, let a lone Vanity Fair.
This is a grown woman who will be collecting social security checks any day now, and "da bomb" is in her vocabulary.
When Barbie is running low on plastic she borrows some from Cher.
Styrofoam bio degrades faster than she will.
I barely want to get liberal political opinion from people who are qualified to give them let alone from someone like her who could call a "dunce cap" a "cap."
It's times like this I wish the smart half of Sonny and Cher was still alive.Add a comment
Its hard to imagine it was 2 years ago today...it has felt like a f@#$ing eternity...
New GOP majority assures humbled Obama that their decision to just "not compromise" is, in fact, a compromise.
Obama insists the election was not a repudiation of his agenda itself, just what it is doing to the country.

The 2010 election is a huge step in the right direction, but we need to remember that this needs to be the first election where we win the battle and then we don't go home when its over, ever again.
We have to hold people who accept the label of conservative accountable, because the last two years is what we get when bad Republicans make the body politic so sick to its stomach that they make exlax look like Halloween candy.
Honest conservatives have known since November 5, 2008 that this wasn't going to end well for the Democrats. They knew this wasn't an affirmation of crazy liberal policies, but a rejection of the people who were entrusted to carry the torch of real American values who kept pissing on the torch and calling it rain.
"People out there are still hurting very badly, and they are still scared. And so part of the reason that our politics seems so tough right now, and facts and science and argument does not seem to be winning the day all the time, is because we're hard-wired not to always think clearly when we're scared," Obama said at a Democratic fundraiser Saturday in Boston. "And the country is scared, and they have good reason to be."

The preceding message was sponsored by the corporation for NEVER LETTING A CRISIS GO TO WASTE.
Which is a better instance of voters "not thinking" clearly? Voting to give power to the party that wants to repeal a health care takeover they never wanted, or "you know what, Vice President Biden has a nice ring to it."
College girls 10 tequila shots deep and using absinthe as a chaser at a fraternity party titled "Lets Have An Orgy" make more responsible decisions than the throngs of ZMBIES wetting their panties over a man who, as they are just now realizing, has less substance than a hollowed out cheese puff.
November 3, 2010 needs to go as the first day of the rest of American conservatism's long, and hopefully immortal life.Add a comment

If there was any year that the GOP could make something happen in California it was this one. That state is officially lost...at least we know for sure now.

I'm bringing this post from last week back because IT'S ELECTION DAY! So get out there and...
I'm here for the Restoring Sanity rally! No, I'm NOT 3 days late.
I hereby declare this election day Operation: Kick Dem Asses!
Obama thinks Republican's should sit in the back of the bus..I understand why, I just think its weird they would put the steering wheel back there.
Schumer is getting ready to replace Leader Reid...altogether now....WHATS UP CHUCK! Wait, thats not right.......oh yeah, its LETS UPCHUCK!
Will Pelosi's tears dissolve her tissue?
Looking for help from up above?
Maybe he'll see the light tomorrow...
If a Democrat falls in the Congress and nobody is there to hear it, does Hillary still cackle like a cat in a blender?
Will Barney Frank finally be left behind, or will he win and get some celebratory left behind?
Did you know the parking lot where I parked to vote is not just home to registered Democrats, it is one too?!?
Harry Reid is right, Obama is like the miners....before the cave in.
Looks like Nevada is about to bet it all on a different kind of red than what they've been getting with the Dems.
Only because I want the Senate too...Go McCain.
Christine O'Donnell is a good witch, Pelosi is a bad witch, and Osama bin Laden is a sand-witch. (h/t to the great John Pinette on the inspiration for that one)
I hope Al Franken is watching the returns for Dems so he can finally see what a joke really is.Add a comment

How did Democrats go from "its a new day" to "run away, run away" in just two years?
Basically, 2008 was like going to a car dealership because your 2000 model was about to be discontinued, and the few parts that actually made it work would've been impossible to come by. Besides, it had been breaking down constantly for the last two years (it also wanted you to let people who were in the car illegally drive it until it could come up with a way to give them their own car with your taxes)
Being disillusioned with cars in general, the salesman at the dealership directs you to a new make and model that turns out to be the most beautiful car in the lot. Its black with red upholstery, and in spite of the fact that even the manufacturer had never test driven it EVERYONE wanted one.
While you inspect it you hear the engine rev up something fierce even though the key wasn't in the ignition. You think thats pretty weird, but you look past that because it looks like a REALLY sweet ride, and you REALLY need a car that will get you from point A to point B. Also, you've never had one that came with teleprompters before!
So....you're sold! The dealer tries to show you a model that has been around longer, is proven on the road, and is married to a popular car from the 90's, but much like it's husband you're not interested in driving that model anymore.
So you buy the black car with the red interior with a four year loan of $4 trillion. About 6 months in to the love affair you find that the damn thing NEVER stops revving it's engine, everywhere you go it revs up so everyone will look. What you used to think was kind of cool is now obnoxious. You start to think your new car is a bit of an attention whore. Also, you hate how it constantly bows before foreign built cars and offers you health insurance...or else.
Now you want to take it back to the dealer to see if there's a way to fix the problems. They refuse at first because they never gave you a receipt for your purchase and that would disqualify you from the warranty on the car. To make matters worse the dealer also informs you that the pink slip looks like a forgery and that you might want to get that checked out.
After some haggling over a cup of tea the dealer agrees to at least run a diagnostic on the car, and they figure out what the problem was....you're a racist.
Then you're told that if you try to get rid of it they'll climb over fences, parachute over walls, and interrupt Botox parties to force you to take it back. So you're stuck with this sour socialist lemon of a car for at least 4 years.
While feeling a complete sense of despair over this you learn that while you can't get rid of the car, you can change dealerships so you can, at a minimum, try to change the way the car operates. New motor oil, a better smelling air freshener, a bumper sticker that says YU LIE! Little things here and there until you can trade it in for something better...way better.
And THAT is how you blow up a Democrat majority faster than Joe Biden with a lighter trying to figure out TNT.Add a comment
