Bachmann: Repeal Obamacare Before It ‘Literally Kills’ People!

Apparently Bachmann couldn’t keep a low profile for long and burst back on the stage with a string of hyperbole and falsehood so outrageous she is being described as the G.O.P.’s Bachmann Problem: People like Bachmann represent everything that is wrong with the Republican Party. She and her colleagues are hyperbolic, reactionary, ill-informed and ill-intentioned, and they have become synonymous with the Republican brand. We don’t need all politicians to be Mensa-worthy, but we do expect them to be cogent and competent. When all the dust settles from the current dustup within the party over who holds the mantle and which direction to take, Republicans will still be left with the problem of what to do with people like Bachmann. And as long as the … Continue reading

So Paul Ryan Sought Obama Stimulus & Argued For Bush Stimulus. Does Anybody Care?

A link came scrolling across my twitter this morning blaring, PAUL RYAN HYPOCRISY, with a story/video link from MSNBC show, Up With Chris Hayes. The video clearly shows Representative Paul Ryan, now Republican Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan, advocating for a government stimulus package which he now claims does not work: Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy The subsequent storyline is that Ryan, who also sought Obama stimulus dollars while claiming they didn’t work, is a hypocrite for doing so. My initial thought is probably similar to most Democrats who roll their eyes and see just another conservative hypocrite who claims to hate government but only when it is convenient for them.
