Bloviating Zeppelin: How the Demorats phrase it

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

How the Demorats phrase it


From a recent DSCC e-mail:

They’ve really done it this time. Health care. Pell grants. Now Medicare’s on the chopping block.

Democrats think Medicare is a promise. Republicans think it’s a litmus test. Candidates who aren’t willing to kill it won’t get anywhere in 2012.

Look, the GOP’s got a vision for America, and it’s no place you’d want to live. Only four Senate seats stand in their way. We can block their idiocy – for now. But if we lose our majority in 2012, we’ll also lose Medicare, Social Security, health care reform – the safety net Americans depend upon.

We CAN prevent this, and I need your help. Your gift to the DSCC will help protect our majority and stop the GOP assault on our values, but you need to give right now.

Give an immediate $5 to the DSCC, and Democratic senators will match your donation. It’s like giving a $10 donation for only $5. But you must act quickly. We need to raise $231,871 by May 31 to protect our Democratic firewall!

Meeting this goal is so important that Democratic senators will match every dollar you give, doubling your impact. I know it’s easy to get distracted by the three (or four, or five) ring circus that is the presidential race. Thing is, if we lose the Senate, President Obama’s agenda is dead. If you think a Republican Senate will work with him, then I’ve got a nice piece of land in Wasilla to sell you.

I need you to step up, because the right wing sure is. Exhibit A is tomorrow’s NY-26 special election. Karl Rove’s American Crossroads bought more than $700,000 in ads supporting the Republican candidate. For a single, solitary House seat. You can imagine what they’ll be willing to drop on each of these Senate races.

And boy, we’ve got a ton of them. We’re defending 23 seats. The Republicans have 10. If they gain four, they’ve got the majority – and free rein to implement their awful agenda.

The DSCC gets more than 90% of its donations from the grassroots. Your $5 can make a real difference on the ground – especially with the May Match. The match means your $10 gift will only cost you $5 – if you act today.

Democratic senators will match your gift today and help the DSCC reach $231,871 by May 31. That means your $10 gift only costs $5. It’s a great deal – and the best way I know to defend our Democratic majority!

The GOP’s got a vision all right – and a severe need for corrective lenses. We can stop them, but it’s going to take all of us. Thanks for standing up for what’s right.

Sincerely,

James Carville

The Demorats repeated bleat:

"If they gain four, they’ve got the majority – and free rein to implement their awful agenda."

-Less spending
-Less government

-Balanced budgets

-ObamaKare elimination

-Fewer taxes

-Fewer regulation

-More drilling to = energy independence

-Belief in American sovereignty

-Adherence to the Constitution


Man, I gotta hand it to the Demorats. They're absolutely correct. Adherence to those above bullet points? That's absolutely beyond awful!

Meanwhile, bipartisan slaps to Mr Obama abound -- and rightly so:
House lawmakers from both parties are siding with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over President Obama in their differing approaches to the Israel-Palestine border dispute.

Rep. Robert Andrews (D-N.J.) said Tuesday that Obama is "tilting toward Hamas" – a reference to the Palestinian group the United States and Israel consider a terrorist organization. He emphasized that Congress would never base its approach to Israeli aid on such a position.

"A majority of the Congress disagrees with him,” Andrews said of Obama.

Rep. Austin Scott (R-Ga.), for one, said the president "absolutely … made a mistake" with his 1967-borders proposal, and suggested it would harm — rather than bolster — the chances of renewed peace talks.

"With all of the political turmoil and unrest in the Middle East, I don’t understand why the president injected himself into that issue right now," he said.

Both Rep. Steny Hoyer (Md.), the House Democratic whip, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) have also rejected Obama's proposal in recent days, telling the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) that preconditions have no place in the negotiations.

Further, what you suspected is actually correct. The Demorats under Mr Obama would indeed like to completely remove Americans' ability to defend themselves -- by Executive Fiat. From HotAir.com:

On March 30, the 30th anniversary of the assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan, Jim Brady, who sustained a debilitating head wound in the attack, and his wife, Sarah, came to Capitol Hill to push for a ban on the controversial “large magazines.” Brady, for whom the law requiring background checks on handgun purchasers is named, then met with White House press secretary Jay Carney. During the meeting, President Obama dropped in and, according to Sarah Brady, brought up the issue of gun control, “to fill us in that it was very much on his agenda,” she said.

“I just want you to know that we are working on it,” Brady recalled the president telling them. “We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar.”

The statement reinforces an article in the Huffington Post describing how the administration is exploring ways to bypass Congress and enact gun control through executive action.

The Department of Justice reportedly is holding meetings discussing the White House’s options for enacting regulations on its own or through adjoining agencies and departments. “Administration officials said talk of executive orders or agency action are among a host of options that President Barack Obama and his advisers are considering. “


Yeah, those wacky Republicans and Conservatives, who want government to live within its means and continue to provide citizens the ability to defend themselves. How crazy is that?

Good one, and it's really NOT about Medicare, but Medicaid, food stamps, sec 8 housing and a host of other entitlements...

And, NFO, I thought you would respond to not only the Demorat stance, but the subverted but yet naked attempt to remove lawful guns from lawful Americans.

Like you.

It is all about raising money and "energizing the base."

One consequence is the further polarizing of the population. Intentional? Who knows.

The fearmongering approach works, much as I hate to say it. just look at it's record of success.

As half or better of this country enjoys being depressed, angry, and seeing the glass as half empty all the time, such people really suck up such crap. I'd like to tell 'em to grow up, but, don't think they have any desire to.

Democrats? I think not. Domestic enemy more aptly describes the Party of the Gilded Jackass.

who does Carville think believes Dem senators are going to match incoming funds? :-) They're getting desperate and will bring in tons of money while the Republicans fall apart and consider lightweights who could NEVER get elected. man, what a nightmare.
With a media as complicit as ours is with Obama, we can't nominate anybody who won't get creamed...

OLD NFO watched Dick Morris on FOX last night, obviously. He said that very thing.

That is precisely why I closed my eyes, held my nose, clenched my teeth, said "I can't believe I'm doing this." and voted for McCain two years ago.

I'll say this for the Dems: they know how to rally their people.

What really worries me is that the GOP doesn't know how to do the same.

Of course, one reason that the Dems are so successful in unifying is that the media are complicit with the Dems and promote Dem propaganda via every mainstream media outlet.

And, if you've been reading accurately, sought-after 62% tax rate for the "wealthy." Remember, Our Mr Obama says $250K is wealthy.
