This lip service to tax cuts is being hailed as a sort of moment of Obama coming to Jesus (a huh, a huh huh huh) on the economy. Forgive me if I choose to remain a doubting Thomas on that point.
The only struggle going on here is the one where liberals have to choose between their ideology and reality.
It's not at all a coincidence that the states having the biggest problems with money and scratching their heads in bemusement are the ones that liberals have a death grip on (California, New York, Michigan). They like to sneer at Reaganomics but it worked no matter how many times they make unchallenged pronouncements that it didn't.
I know next to Obama FDR is their great "progressive" liberal hero, after all, both smoked, one needed crutches to walk, the other needs a crutch to think....
FDR had more VP's than Biden has brain cells. There's the "New Deal," the "Big Effing Deal," and wasting money is an ass they can definitely kick.
One thing is certain. Reagan's economic policies didn't need a world war to finally get the country out of its economic funk. Furthermore...wait a sec, that quote said Obama wants to help the economy by giving MORE aid to...states...aaand...OMG they want more stimulus again?!? Wont these people ever learn?!?
I forget, what did Einstein say was the product of doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results?

The media wanted to sit on this amazing scientific find, but photos leaked out, here is a magnified view of the virus.
Scientists are calling the petri dish the "Culture of Corruption"
New York Times conservative columnist Ross Douthat attended the Restoring Honor Rally and wrote a column on it that must've really unnevered the opinion editor, who was undoubetly forced to choose between that and the letters to the editor detailing "eyewitness" accounts from "readers" like Daureen Moud and Kaul Prugman, who saw Beck turn into a dragon and forced everyone to repent or face the hellfire clamoring for release from his demonically conservative gullet.
You can read the piece here, or you can see the concluding paragraphs, which give a pretty good idea of the direction it went in.
I know Douthat has some pretty impressive credentials, but this is supposed to pass for the conservative voice at the Times? I guess over there conservative = "medicated liberal."
Douthat was ALMOST there wasn't he? But like Biden holding a flash card of when television was really invented...
...he completely misses the point about Glenn Beck's mission. He's not trying to be the conservative Michael Moore (as stated near the beginning of his column). He's fighting for ideals that are more univeral and enduring than the result of any one election.
I don't know, he writes for the most liberal rag in the country, so maybe he's just trying to speak to them slowly...
...and dumb down the column in terms that even a Manhattan liberal can understand...
By the way, I want to apologize for not knowing of a good web-safe font to communicate "idiot" for the above questions.
The bottom line is this, Beck is the 21st century Paul Revere, not for the political world...for the spiritual one. Fighting for God in our hearts isn't the fad that tub Michael Moore turned out to be, it is SO MUCH MORE than that, and I hope Douthat knew this and was just being forced to play to his audience.

And that precludes
Horny politicians who
Only listen to
Hail from the greatest nation in all their hand
It also precludes
who live as They choose
When it all hits fan
They demand to understand
Where the hell He went
A three pronged attack
an attitude that
Leads to a Life, Christ-like Hope
You can plainly see
The fork in the road that lies before you
And you know exactly
What it is you need to do....

YES WE CAN! didn't...

Congratulations and Godspeed to Glenn Beck and everyone making the Restoring Honor rally happen. To those who made it there, I am SO jealous, and have fun!
