Words He Will Regret

Jan
08

Oh, oh! Speaker of the House Paul Ryan reacting to Obama's veto of the GOPer bill to repeal Obamacare (link):

“We have shown now that there is a clear path to repealing Obamacare without 60 votes in the Senate. So, next year, if we’re sending this bill to a Republican president, it will get signed into law,” Ryan continued.

Yeah, that's a real incentive to vote for a "Republican president". I wouldn't be surprised if the DNC had it already in a 30-second spot in preparation for next year.

Someone Ask WBBM: Is Bill Foster an Extremist?

Dec
10

Interesting interview by WBBM's Craig Dellimore of outgoing Congresswoman Judy Biggert. Biggert went on and on about the moderates being replaced in Congress by radicals of both extremes. It might have been nice if Dellimore had asked her view on how much of a radical left-wing extremist her opponent was.

Joe Lieberman - Al Gore's Biggest Mistake?

Jan
19

Steve Benen does a fine job summing up what most of us from a liberal persuasion are likely to think of Sen. Joe Lieberman's departure from the Senate.

If I were to think of some of the more damaging things he's done, I'd have to include his negative role during the Health Care debate where as Steve rightly says, "...Lieberman was chiefly responsible for killing the public option..."

The Daily Pelosi

Mar
19

-- Shameless admiration bordering on sycophancy --

On whether there'll be some side agreement in order to appease the anti-Abortion Dems in order to get their support for HCR:

Nancy Pelosi: "I haven't heard any of that. What I have heard is that this bill is about health care, not about abortion..."

Nuclear Option

Mar
05

I just don't see how we're going to avoid it -- not on HCR, that's a done deal (please God) -- but on getting any other bills or nominations through the Senate in the next few years.

I mean, the obstruction we've seen from GOPers this year isn't suddenly going to diminish simply because their numbers will have increased thanks to the mid-terms in November. In fact, it's likely to get far worse.
