First they create the mess.

Fuck it.

Tried 5 times to fix it.

Tired.

Do it later.

Maybe.

Everyone keeps talking about bipartisanship

The bipartisanship angle hasn't worked for President Obama since Jan. 20, 2009. At least not enough to make much of a difference.

I give him credit for trying. But he needs to use the political clout of his office more often. He needs to call the crazy bastards out on their lies. Not all of the lies because that in itself would be a full time job. Maybe one or two a week.

But he's to nice.

He needs to give them a jobs bill to vote on every week or two. Rotate it with an infrastructure bill, budget bill and a minimum wage bill.

Do it every week. Week in and week out. Then, when the bills are constantly voted down, let the country know what the assholes are doing. If nothing else it may be good ammo for the elections.

If the repukes start bitching about it, make sure to remind them that they seem to have no problem with trying to get rid Obamacare by voting against it. What? 39 or 40 times now? Even though it is now law.

He needs to start hammering away on them and not let up. Even when Faux News, OxyRush, Crybaby Beck and Shammity start with "the angry black man" crap.

And he can't let up.

Bring up the meeting that Bill Cantor, Paul Ryan, Jim DeMint, Kevin McCarthy, Pete Sessions, Pete Hoestra, Dan Lungren, Jon Kyl, Tom Coburn, Bob Corker, John Ensign, Newt Gingrich, Frank Luntz and Jeb Hensarling had the VERY EVENING of the inauguration to intentionally sabotage and prevent an economic recovery by voting against virtually everything that President Obama proposed.

Hell, make a big-assed poster with their names and pictures on it, that can be displayed behind the President and every democrat that makes a speech or a public statement. Imagine that backdrop at press conferences?

Now some may think that this that's a little over the top, but President Obama and the democrats need to do something, anything, other than what they are doing now.

I know that there are a few dems that are speaking out (FINALLY) and even President Obama has given us a few flashes of encouragement by speaking out against the rethugs from time to time.

But he... we... us... need to do more by standing up and calling the republicans/ teabaggers/right wing nuts, out on their lies and bullshit.

Sure, maybe it's a good thing, for us and the upcoming elections, that there are so many on the right that are talking so crazy. But, if there is no counter point to the sewer slop that comes constantly from so many of the lying assholes, that's what people will remember.

We can't afford that.

The country can't afford that.

The world can't afford that.

Just to let everyone know. I really like President Obama. I think that he was what this country needed to help it recover from the shitpot that Bush the Lesser and his cronies left the country in.

I don't always agree with him, especially lately on a few things, but I think that he's helped the country heal and given it back some of the respect that was lost during the previous debacle.

And yes, I do what I can. I have for some 40+ years now. I stared getting involved when I was 15 or 16. Only now it isn't much lately since my health went south.

I guess I'm about done now. Sometimes I get going and don't know when to stop. Since I've been sick these past few years the intertubes has been one of my main means of communication and interaction with people. Friends and relatives tend to visit and call less and less if you can't go and see them it seems.

Sorry if my rant went long. Sometimes I just get going. That, and I have to get started some time.
