YIKES !!! - The Next Michelle Bachman ???


GOP: Obama's first 100 days all spending, taxing
1 hour ago

<snip>

WASHINGTON (AP) Republicans say President Barack Obama's first 100 days in office can be summed up in three words: spending, taxing, borrowing.

In the party's weekly radio and Internet address, Rep. Lynn Jenkins (R - Kansas) chided Obama and Democrats in Congress for pushing through a $787 billion stimulus package and a $3 trillion federal budget for next year that she said will waste taxpayers' dollars and burden future generations.

"The plans they've passed in the first 100 days will add more to our nation's public debt than all previous presidents combined in 200-plus years," said the Kansas Republican, a former state treasurer. "They've taken away President Obama's promised middle-class tax cut and paved the way for a new national energy tax to be paid by every American who dares to flip on a light switch."

Pointing to the stimulus package, Jenkins contended millions of dollars have already needlessly gone for a homeless program in a town which doesn't have such a problem, an artwalk in New York as well as sidewalks and trash cans outside a Michigan casino.

"This bill was supposed to be about jobs, but it's gone off the rails in practically no time at all," she said. "It's quickly turning into a symbol of everything wrong with Washington, D.C. unchecked spending, no accountability and oversight."

Jenkins said Republicans believe they can help rebuild people's savings, revitalize the housing market and create "twice as many jobs as the Democrats' 'stimulus' at half the cost."

"Middle-class families and small businesses across America are tightening their belts and making sacrifices each and every day during this recession, and Republicans believe that it's time for Washington to do the same," she said.

Lynn... you Republicans believe a bunch of things that have no basis in reality.

7. Yes. I can think of two possibilities for the original image:
1. She's Pinocchio's sister and they had to remove the fact she was makin' big-ass lies...

2. She's the Love Child of Michelle Bachmann and Dumbo the Disney Elephant and they had to get rid of the big trunk...

13. Someone, please wake this person up...
She's stuck in some 2000-2008 time warp because she's yakking about "unchecked spending, no accountability and oversight."

We KNOW! That sort of nonsense, year after year after year (oh, and the deliberate use of torture to validate an invalid war, among other things) is one of the primary reasons we find ourselves in the serious crisis we're in! A crisis so deep, destructive and pervasive that our current Administration (equipped with actual cognitive ability - I know, shocking after all these years, isn't it?) has no choice but to enact massive, unpleasant measures of oversight, even management, ownership and responsibility because the idiots holding this dance card at the last hoe-down did nothing but fling manure and pick pockets of the distracted or diverted revelers.

Actually, maybe it would be more amusing to let her keep talking in her sleep...

Her maiden name is Moran, perchance?

15. SSDD
This lady along with most of the GOP are still spouting the same old tired lines. Thankfully, most Americans have caught on by now. The GOP bragged about having all the power and the ramifications of that are right in front of us. They look like hypocrites because they ARE.

18. Can't help but note "little black dress w/pearls" .
Not sure exactly why I'm bothered by that, but maybe she just seems like a walking cliche.

How many of the Stepford wives are out there?

It wasn't so bad when their main roles were "wives", but now the Repukes have "wised up" & are putting them in the power positions knowing that they are programmed to do all their bidding while also looking the fool.

These women are a disgrace to my gender. They are bimbos :silly: on an entirely different level. We must defeat them & expose them for what they are.

Wait....maybe they're doing it on their own! :rofl:

20. apologies to Ogden Nash
I've never seen a penis nose;
I hope I never see one.
But I can tell you anyhow,
I'd rather see one than BE one.

21. It's bizarre to hear reich-wingers screech about spending.
The last balanced budget was under a Democratic President.

Reagan, Bush I and AWOL Bush put us into ruinous debt.

24. How's the marriage going, Lynn?
Fucking family values my ass.

At least having someone with a penis nose is kinda funny when they talk about stimulus packages...
