Good commentary by Rachel.

Good commentary by Rachel. Thanks for sharing.

I liked her seccession idea best...

She acts like it is obvious that socialist/progressive ideas are the best, but to the victor goes the spoils, but I think it is high time for Republicans to adopt live and let live socialist policies. But mark my words, progressives will not ever except liberty ideas becuase they believe in big government and are certain they are smater and more enlightened than anybody else. I don't agree that evolution is a thing, I think it has become a religion by being anti-religion. As of this second, I consider you RP dumbasses to be my poltical enemy - I'm joining the democrats and get a free obamaphone.

Rachel knows how to drive the knife home

both pompous and "humble"

She was dead-on though about Republicans.

The Neo-Cons ruined the party -- Reagan allowed them in by partnering with Bush Sr. (they then shot him and drove out all the Goldwater libertarians by '81).

Here's the new Repub theme song:

Gotta get off, gonna get
Out of this merry-go-round
Gotta get off, gonna get
Need to get on where I'm bound

Rachel Maddow.

Very poetic. Much like obama.

We have work to do.

"The deficit is dropping, actually" ????

Excuse me, sure it is. Some truths with some more media propaganda.

Thats DemoSpeak.

The DEBT isn't coming down. Its going up by roughly $1.5 trillion per year.

But the DEFICIT (thats the money we have to borrow in a given year)has gone down very incrementally from $1.6 trillion to $1.5 trillion, as more taxes are collected and fewer bailouts happen.

$1.5 trillion is still the 3rd or 4th highest deficit ever by far - but it is slightly less than last year - it will go up again. You ADD deficits to the debt.

But the DEBT is going nowhere but up.

Cyril's picture

+1. And guess in which direction

+1. And guess in which direction the growth, the GDP, the DOW JONES industrial average, the Nasdaq's, etc,

... all are - ACTUALLY - going...

Not too difficult to guess.

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

The figures that I saw for

The figures that I saw for the Federal Deficit in 2011 was 1.3 Trillion as opposed to 1.1 Trillion in 2012, so she may have gotten that right.

She wasn't saying total debt, just the deficit for the year, which hopefully becomes even smaller in the next few years once we exit out of Afghanistan and the bush tax cuts for the 1% go away.

Okay, understandable...

Obama is now driving us off the cliff at 90 mph unlike the 100 mph he was at a couple a years ago. The problem is Obama, nor Romney for that matter, can't find the brake pedal because his foot is stuck on the gas pedal.

The destruction of the dollar is inevitable.

Don't you see?

These days when "that special someone (let's say it's you)" is elected president, you take that long walk down the tunnel to shake and kiss the hands of those that got you there. They offer you a "reward", again, this time with a brand new pair of shoes (your principles). You respectfully decline noting that the ones you have on are just Fine. "They got me here, didn't they?", you ask. Your "friends" correct you while pointing to the pair on your feet, "Remember when we gave you those? You agreed to put them on. You WILL agreed to put these on." Knowing what's best (you are the President after all) you agree, again, with a smile. Now your "friends" show you to White House driveway your pimp-mobile. A Brand new, fully Loaded "Ground Force One". You are aghast, thinking to yourself, "I could fit the whole country in this". And true to form you write an Executive Order "Proclaiming" it so. They suggest you take it for a spin and you concur. Writing another Executive Order telling "everyone to get on board!" When everyone has fastened their seat belts you hit the gas...only to realize, "There's glue on my shoe."
