Sigh. Yet another misleading attack Ad against Paul Ryan

These people are so predictable and the ad itself is really, really bad.

Does anyone wish to inform these morons and the useful idiots seniors that were protesting Ryan that Obamacare cut $575,000,000,000 from Medicare?

Leftists demagogue that conservatives want to cut Medicare, but leftists actually CUT Medicare.

And in spite of all of the manufactured hysteria from the Democrats, Ryan’s budget is still a deficit spending budget. It’s just not as reckless as Obama’s budget.

The Republican budget plan would produce deficits totaling $3.13 trillion over the next 10 years – significantly below the $6.39 trillion in deficits that the Congressional Budget Office says Obama’s fiscal 2013 budget plan would produce.

And never mind the fact it has been 1055 days (nearly 3 years) since the Democratically controlled Senate has passed a budget.

Breaking: Eric Cantor drops out of bogus Biden Debt Commission

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor spoke about the Deficit Reduction Commission one month ago.  Remarkably, the talks have hit an impasse and he’s finally figured out that it’s a waste of time.  Bye Biden.

According to the Wall Street Journal:

Mr. Cantor, in an interview after a negotiating session he described as bitterly contentious, said he would not be attending Thursday’s scheduled meeting of the bipartisan deficit-reduction leadership group because he believed it was time for the negotiations to move to a higher level.

“We’ve reached the point where the dynamic needs to change,” Mr. Cantor said. “It is up to the president to come in and talk to the speaker. We’ve reached the end of this phase. Now is the time for these talks to go into abeyance.”

Update:  Meanwhile, Democrats are worrying that their president will offer too many concessions to the Republicans in order to get a deal on the budget and debt ceiling.

As bipartisan debt limit negotiations between congressional leaders and the White House rev up, a number of Democrats are worried that President Barack Obama will agree to a deal with the GOP that cuts federal spending too deep, undermines the social safety net, slashes entitlement programs and does not include a single dime in tax increases.

Did you know that linking spending to debt is ‘irrational’?  What geniuses we have up on the Hill.

Some liberals, such as Reps. Keith Ellison of Minnesota and Jim McDermott of Washington, said it’s “irrational” to link spending cuts to the debt ceiling debate. 

It’s no wonder the two sides are at an impasse.

Mitch McConnell dancing to the beat of a different drum

After listening to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s detailed discussion on the Debt, the Budget and Spending on Saturday, along with Congressman Paul Ryan’s assertion that the people are way ahead of the political class on Meet the Press yesterday, there seems to be a disconnect with establishment Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s vision of the way forward.

McConnell’s appearance on Fox News Sunday left me scratching my head, because his apparent biological predisposition to compromise with Democrats was in stark contrast with House leadership.

No video or transcript of FNS’s McConnell segment is available at this time, but Roll Call has a little blurb about it.

Cantor was dismissive of the President’s latest ‘Commission’ headed by Joe Biden, as he was of Pat Toomey’s Bill, ceding the power of the purse to the President.

Eric Cantor is not exactly a Tea Party Republican, but the contrast between him and RINO boy is vast. Cantor gets it. McConnell does NOT.

If Republicans take the Senate in 2012, the very FIRST order of business is to make sure that McConnell no longer holds any leadership position.

This is not negotiable.

 

Eric Cantor on Israel, Obama and the future of Middle East Alliances and Power

This comment, delivered yesterday in Hanover County, VA, was in direct contrast to what Obama said on Thursday, which he just walked back before the American Israel Public Affairs Committee a few minutes ago. Matter of fact, it sounded like Obama lifted many of Cantor’s comments, so his tradition of saying different things for different audiences remains unblemished.

Let’s see if American Jews fall for Obama’s triangulation, or are they liberals first and Jews by birth only with no real attachment to Israel.

AIPAC speech will be added when it becomes available.

John Boehner and Eric Cantor are cowards

This Republican leadership obviously didn’t get the memo. They speak the words but their actions are unserious. Did you not hear us, boys?

CUT SPENDING AND DO IT NOW!

$61 Billion isn’t even 1/3 of last month’s deficit spending.

Cato illustrates this nicely.

Mr. Boehner. Mr. Cantor.

Do you think Americans rose up, held Tea Parties and Town Halls to entertain ourselves? Do you think we got ourselves to Washington repeatedly to send a message for the entertainment factor? Do you think that we gave you an overwhelming majority in the House so you could get better office accommodations?

Your probation period is over. Your careers are about to be, as well.

Do you really think that the American people give a DAMN about shutting down the Government?

Our patience has run out.
