They NEVER Learn: Tammy Baldwin Responds To Condescending GOP Senator - HuffPo

Tammy Baldwin To Ron Johnson: 'I'm Quite Confident' I Understand The Federal Budget
Amanda Terkel - HuffPo
Posted: 11/09/2012 2:42 pm EST

<snip>

WASHINGTON -- Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D), Wisconsin's new senator-elect, is confident that she will be able to understand the federal budget without the assistance of Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.).

In an Associated Press interview on Wednesday, Johnson said he hoped he would be able to work with Baldwin in the Senate -- as soon as he explained the "facts" of the budget to her.

"Hopefully I can sit down and lay out for her my best understanding of the federal budget because they're simply the facts," he said. "Hopefully she'll agree with what the facts are and work toward common sense solutions."

"I was a double major in college in mathematics and political science, and I served for six years on the House Budget Committee in my first six years in the House," Baldwin responded in an interview with The Huffington Post on Friday.

"And I am very confident that when proposals come before the U.S. Senate, I will be able to evaluate them as to how they benefit or harm middle-class Wisconsinites. A yardstick of 'does it create jobs,' 'does it lower the deficit' and 'does it help grow the middle class' is an important one. I'm quite confident that I have those abilities," she added.

Baldwin has served in Congress since 1999; Johnson took office in 2011.

103. yup. i have learned from du, minimal words, no emotion and still... all the adjectives are hurled

at me. there is no way i can speak up and out without being one of those unfeminine uppity women. so fuck it.

the more women with a voice, loud and clear, alone with karen hughes, repug, saying tired of the damn neanderthel mentality. keep your fuckin mouth shut on rape unless it is to say what a horrible crime it is.

no more tippy toeing, trying to coddle men in our speech to not ruffle their feathers. if it opposes their view, we have stepped over the line.

so fuck it

uppity and sharped tongue, you know b..... . as one duer said, it is not a sexist term becuase she does not have to be one.

you really think the men did not call this woman exactly that?

speak up, and regardless, that will be the name.

17. To me this is the most telling line:

"Hopefully I can sit down and lay out for her my best understanding of the federal budget because they're simply the facts," he said. "Hopefully she'll agree with what the facts are and work toward common sense solutions."

He hopes she "agrees" with the facts? Sounds to me like he wants to brainwash her with RW propaganda. LIke having a republican tell me to watch Faux News for the facts and that they hoped I would agree with the facts.

I think this is as much of a partisan thing as a sexist thing.

I think Tammy Baldwin can handle working on the budget. However, I do not think Johnson was trying to be condescending. He was just stupid. It seems to me that he was not trying to say that she was not competent enough to under the budget, he just wanted her to see his facts and agree with him.

Guess what, Mr. Johnson. A human brain does not require a penis to function. It sounds like Ms. Baldwin is MORE THAN CAPABLE of understanding the federal budget without you. In fact, it sounds like she can teach you a thing or two, if you can set aside your misogyny long enough to listen.

54. Hah! That was patronizing. What an ass he is. Well, Wisconsin, at least you have one

good Senator now (or you will when she takes office, that is).

I think we may well see more of this. We need to push back. We need to assert ourselves. For all you closed-minded, Pox Noise-sucking, willfully-ignorant deniers out there, NOW HEAR THIS:

Women will NOT go back. We're here and we insist on total unquestioned sovereignty over our bodies.

Blacks are HERE. And they are every bit your equal. As a matter of fact one African-American in particular showed your own best and brightest who's boss, not once but TWICE. GET OVER IT.

Latinos deserve RESPECT. They actually ARE the American Dream if you really wanna know. Coming from elsewhere to this wonderful country of hope and endless possibilities, and struggling and working their fingers raw and their muscles screaming. They earn it the hard way, and every last one of them is his or her own living breathing Horatio Alger story. GET USED TO IT.

You look down your nose at these people at your peril. You regard them as less than you and you show YOURSELVES to be the lesser ones. You scoff and smirk and patronize them at your own folly.

bill o'reilly has it all wrong. The "traditional" America is NOT gone. It's been rejuvenated. The old clothes just grew filthy, moldering with bacteria and stench. Besides, most of us have long since outgrown them. And they've had to be replaced. The American tradition is evolving all the time, as any basically healthy living organism does. We as a society have been creating new and timely, more relevant and even sacred traditions. Face it. Yes. Evolution IS worth taking seriously. This country is its living proof if you ask me.

And for the kkkarl roves of the world, who once described a new reality his side was creating that the rest of us would be left to study, while they act and then act again? Well, I've got news for him! There really IS a new reality being created. We're ALL living in it, whether we choose to accept or believe it. It just cut you off at the knees on Tuesday evening. And WE created it. WE BUILT IT. Everyone around you has been building it. Your reality is what's dying. Hell, it never really lived except in your own selfish greed-driven imagination, and then given a propaganda machine in the limbaughs and Pox Noises of your world to document your alleged reality and make it seem factual.

The Obama world is what's real. The crowds at his rallies are what's the real America. EVERY TIME, I looked and saw the rainbow. EVERY TIME, I scanned the crowd behind him or in front of him or on line waiting to shake his hand. And there was a rainbow. Every size and shape of people, every color of people, every age and gender of people. It was living, physical, actual proof of what kind of President we have with Barack Obama - the visual evidence is there for all to see - he's the President of EVERYBODY. Just as you could see, watching the GOP's CONvention and wrongney crowds, it was apparent that mitt would be the president mainly of those who looked more or less like he did. Monochromatic, stiff, cold, and from another era.

It will be interesting to see whether enough of the other side begins to wake up, and come around to what IS, as opposed to "the numbers you have as a republi-CON to make you feel better," as your own megyn kelly would opine.

71. I think that this post of yours is most definitely good enough for a stand-alone thread.

You have written something truly valuable and good.

Thank you, my dear calimary!

That is way beyond stupid.

The first openly gay Senator versus (unfortunately not) the first openly stupid Senator

This moron has 4 years left in his terms. Not too early to be thinking about replacing him.

I guess since she's gay he feels her parents didn't tell her the facts of life either or she would know a guy's winkie is supposed to go in her hoo ha.

This condescending prick who bought a Senate seat is going to teach someone about Congress and the budget who's been in Congress three times longer than he has. Just curious to know how he amassed his fortune and if he has money in off shore tax havens.

83. Translating teabagger to English is always fun

To teabaggers, the only thing wrong with the budget is overspending, overregulation and overtaxation.

To teabaggers, common sense solutions to budget deficits always start with tax cuts.

Rational people automatically think, "if the problem is a lack of money, how the fuck does taking in less of it do anything but make the problem worse?"

98. The jackass can see its' feet at all times, unlike , say a horse, which cannot view its' back feet.

 

This is why they are used in mountain climbs, on steep terrain, where the going is narrow.

This is also why they know when to stop, and to 'not go there'; and nothing will make them.

They have a well-designed brain for the climb.

91. Baldwin wasn't the only one he was explaining things to yesterday

He decided to school the voters a bit too:

"If you aren't properly informed, if you don't understand the problems facing this nation, you are that much more prone to falling prey to demagoguing solutions. And the problem with demagoguing solutions is they don't work," Johnson said. "I am concerned about people who don't fully understand the very ugly math we are facing in this country."

93. Ron Johnson

 

is an example of who the Democrats should target when he is up for re-election if they obstruct the President's Policies in a Blue State. All the GOP's representatives are not in safe red states. They should be recruiting people right now to target these people that march in lock step with the GOP instead of representing the needs of their states. Nobody can blame the President for the state of anything in the country,because he has been dealing with these people.

Unfortunately, that description also works for the other one from my state

Only 4 more years before we can get ride of that loser. What a horrible Senator he is. Utterly unresponsive to his constituents. Ugh. Tammy is a breath of fresh air and is FAR more progressive than Herb Kohl ever was.
