Toad's Likely Questions for the President Tomorrow on MTB

I wonder if Toad will toss to the President the same softball questions he always pitches Graham, McGrumpy, and the rest of the Rethugs. Unlikely. A few sample questions for your viewing retching:

Why have you let all of President Bush's gains in Iraq be lost?

Are you going to shut down the government this September like you did last year?

When are you going to meet Senator Cruz half-way on his serious proposals?

Can you take responsibility for the tone of politics today in Washington?

Why is everything about race with you?

Will you reimburse the taxpayer for your extensive golf outings?

Doesn't Benghazi sum up your foreign policy?

When do we see the "real" birth certificate?








Lott and Breaux--Putin's Lobbyists

snip:

Gazprombank GPB (OJSC), a Russian bank targeted with sanctions by President Obama over the Ukraine crisis, has hired two former U.S. senators to lobby against those sanctions, according to a new disclosure filed with the Senate.



Don't see much of this story in the media. I seem to recall Lott being one of those clowns calling out the Dixie Chicks back during .

Idiot Pundits Promoted--What a Surprise

http://www.salon.com/2014/09/05/stop_promoting_idiot_pundits_nbc_revamps_meet_the_press_with_always_wrong_joe_scarborough_and_luke_meritocracy_russert/

When NBC finally removed David Gregory as moderator of “Meet the Press” and installed Chuck Todd in his place, the network conducted a self-examination to try to figure out why its once-proud Sunday morning news program had become a barely watched joke. The diagnosis? A lack of “insider cred.

I stopped watching the Sunday Morning rethug regurgitation fests two years ago. The promotion of these idiots just proves that the bottom of the media cesspool has yet to be reached. Toad and Scaborough with a side order of Smarmy fratboy Russert on Sunday morning, that is a guaranteed shoe through the TV. I will continue to pass.

Rmoney Says Make The Military Mighty

http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/mitt-romney-the-world-needs-a-mighty-us-military/2014/09/04/f5234064-342d-11e4-a723-fa3895a25d02_story.html

Russia invades, China bullies, Iran spins centrifuges, the Islamic State (a terrorist threat “beyond anything that we’ve seen,” according to the defense secretary ) threatens — and Washington slashes the military. Reason stares.


Does that mean any of Rmoney's 5 sons are signing up to make the military mighty?

No, I think they will be building a perimeter around their dad's private underground garage.

One percent priorities. Make the world safe for their Mercedes.

Chuck Toad Wants to Demystify Washington on MTP

http://www.politico.com/story/2014/08/chuck-todd-meet-the-press-110309.html?hp=l7
snip:

NBC News chief White House correspondent and soon-to-be “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd said Monday that he plans to “demystify” Washington, D.C., in his new position.

Hey Toad let me help you with this demystifying--you are right wing shill for a Washington society defined by a government controlled by one percent grifters, chickenhawks, Elmer Gantry wannabes, science deniers, and teahaddists.

There toad, that wasn't so hard.

SCOTUS Idle Speculation

If the scenario should develop over the next two years that one of the 5 Rethugs should leave the court (illness, death, impeachment) what are the chances the Senate would allow President Obama pick their successor? I say get ready for the filibuster of the century. He would never get a left of center nominee through. For that matter, any nominee.

Bank of America Grifters Not in Prison-Veteran Goes to Jail For 25 Dollars

http://www.msnbc.com/msnbc/doj-announces-1665-billion-settlement-bank-america
snip:

The Justice Department has not singled out or punished any individuals for wrongdoing in the settlements. Holder said the civil settlements do not preclude criminal prosecution of the banks, but the Justice Department has not publicly taken any such actions so far

snip:

If Mr. Papa had been able to pay the first $50 installment toward his debt on the spot, he would have been able to walk out of court. But he only had $25 on him. Mr. Papa told the judge he would get his first paycheck in a week. He pleaded not to be thrown in jail for falling a mere $25 short: "I tried really hard to get this job, and I'd really like to keep it," he said.

I think we can all pretty much agree that helping a vet find stable employment after service overseas is a right thing to do, something our laws and regulations should help to achieve, not disrupt. Well, here's what happened instead: Mr. Papa found a job, but because of a judge's decision to jail him for $25, he lost it.

Instead of letting him go to work, the judge ordered Mr. Papa to serve 22 days in jail for nonpayment of his fines and fees...


The state of America. Grifters don't even need a get out of jail free card because they never go to jail. To the Veteran-welcome back to the Kleptocracy you put your life on the line for.

Attacking ACA Not Working for Rethugs and Teahaddists

http://www.salon.com/2014/08/20/gop_surrenders_on_obamacare_why_they_slashed_spending_on_anti_aca_ads/
snip:

Republicans seeking to unseat the U.S. Senate incumbent in North Carolina have cut in half the portion of their top issue ads citing Obamacare, a sign that the party’s favorite attack against Democrats is losing its punch.

The shift — also taking place in competitive states such as Arkansas and Louisiana — shows Republicans are easing off their strategy of criticizing Democrats over the Affordable Care Act now that many Americans are benefiting from the law and the measure is unlikely to be repealed.

Thus died the Republican dream of riding Obamacare to a crushing midterm victory. As Bloomberg put it, the focus is shifting from simply attacking the ACA to linking it to economic ills, like the slow recovery and the weak job market. “The party’s experience across the country shows that Republicans can’t count on the issue to motivate independent voters they need to oust Democrats in Arkansas, Louisiana and Alaska,” Bloomberg reports.


Teahaddists need new strategy--Benghazi (not working), IRS "Scandal" (yawn), Border crisis (please), wait for it....President Obama plays golf on vacation. Yeah--that's the ticket.
