When You Throw a Rock into a Pigpen……the one that squeals is the one you hit.

President Barack Obama’s second inaugural address:

We do not believe that in this country, freedom is reserved for the lucky, or happiness for the few. We recognize that no matter how responsibly we live our lives, any one of us, at any time, may face a job loss, or a sudden illness, or a home swept away in a terrible storm. The commitments we make to each other – through Medicare, and Medicaid, and Social Security – these things do not sap our initiative; they strengthen us. They do not make us a nation of takers; they free us to take the risks that make this country great.

Paul Ryan responds:
Oh Please do Proceed to the Link.....
http://www.politico.com/story/2013/01/paul-ryan-slams-obama-straw-man-inauguration-speech-86558.html


Ryan said earned entitlements such as Social Security — where you pay your payroll taxes during your working like to get a benefit when you retire — are “not taker programs.”

“When the president does kind of a switcheroo like that, what he’s trying to say is that we are maligning these programs that people have earned throughout their working lives,” he said. “So it’s kind of a convenient twist of terms to try and shadowbox a straw man in order to win an argument by default.”

Jay Carney press conference, January 23:


Q Jay, do you have a reaction to Congressman Paul Ryan saying that the President used a “straw man” argument in his inaugural address when he talked about the fact that the United States is not a nation of takers? Congressman Ryan has said that the President misconstrued what he meant, what Ryan meant when he used that term, “nation of takers.”

MR. CARNEY: Well, I’m not sure that President mentioned Chairman Ryan, but that phrase has been used by a number of Republicans, including Paul Ryan.

Squeal, piggy, squeal!

1. Excellent Find, ,she!

Keep digging, Lyin' ryan.. your species is already lower than koch/cockroaches.. let's see how low you can dig.

The jackal WH Press tying to get some controversary going over lyin's whinin'. I read they asked about Beyonce's "lip synching" too.

Tweet found @ the obama diary..

Liberal Librarian @Lib_Librarian

Can I assume we'll have House hearings on Beyonce lip-synching before we have House hearings on gun violence?

2. Once again, I was trying to play catch up when I got home...

I saw something about Beyonce...thought it was a joke and just passed it by. Dear God...it was real???? Are you serious!

Holy Shit....let's just sit back and watch the show. These guys have nothing anymore. Not one thing! They're most serious concern is Beyonce lip-syncing? They are Imploding here, and damn I just love that picture in my head!

Thanks Cha, you just made my day!!!!!

3. And, to make it even worse..

It seems Beyonce WAS NOT lip synching!

Beyoncé Wasn’t Lip-Syncing

A professional musician goes deep on the inaugural non-scandal.


It's bunk. That lady was singing live. She sang to a prerecorded track—a canned band—and perhaps there was a guide vocal in her earpiece, audible only to her, but that was absolutely a genuine performance.

Kelly Clarkson performed to a prerecorded track, too. So did the choir.

4. Well, Joe knows the truth!

For me, the most compelling evidence that Beyoncé was doing it for real is the HELL YES smile on Joe Biden's face. Now, that is, clearly, a dude standing two feet from an electrifying lady singing like a motherfucker.


Joe rooting for Beyonce! You go Girl!


As for Paul Lying F***king Ryan...the party of No...the Antiquated Knuckle Draggers of the GOP... the hate hate haters of the people of this Great Nation. I hope they Rot in Hell! And they will, they surely will!

Thanks Cha,
I feel cleansed now!

9. I saw her yank her earpiece out shortly after she began singing.

That's what's hanging out from her shoulder in that picture. So if that earpiece had the "guide vocal," she did just about the whole song without it.

7. Jon Stewart touched on this tonight

He dug up a video clip of Ryan stating he felt Social Security recipients WERE takers. Great laughs ensued and his lying was duly noted. Be sure and catch the rerun or watch for latest show to be posted here.
