Yeah, the timing on that could have been better.


Oops. Oops again.

If it's not the sort of risk that you can throw an armoured division or aircraft carrier at, they don't want to hear about it because it reeks of liberals or something.

Is it true that Neo-Cons don't get the flu? Why bother planning when you can spend billions cleaning up the mess.

Red Tory said...

Bad timing, yes, but Collins and Specter weren't off the mark here. Those expenditures should have been in a different appropriations bill. Urgh. Sorry to disagree with you CC, but this really deserves better treatment than this cheap kind of partisan sniping. As in... the whole issue of how these "omnibus" bills are crafted in the first place.

CC said...

RT is correct -- apparently, even Dems voted for that cut. Bad analogy. Movin' on.

You're right, CC. It's time to move on.

Not only did the Democrat Socialist Party abuse the Stimulus Process by trying to slip an unneeded and wasteful liberal program into it, but this whole swine flu thing is nothing but an Obamaplot to stampede the US Senate into confirming the nomination of baby-killer Kathleen Sebelius as Secretary of Health & Human Services. http://www.washingtonmonthly.com/ You were really off your game trying to make something out of this one.

Getting back to the swine flu, not only did they get the swine flu they got the earthquake. Must be more gays in Mexico City than New Orleans cuz New Orleans only got one disaster.

Speaking of Obamaplots, this speculation is interesting:

I see two possibilities: either Obama really is just another standard-issue tool of the Financial Plutocracy, and Volker resigns in disgust within a year to protect what's left of his once-sterling reputation, or Obama is giving the Banking Plutocracy all the rope it needs to hang itself. In that case Volker is the "Trojan Horse" in the system, the one who will emerge after the extremes have finally goaded the public to an anger which cannot be diverted by propaganda and "entertainments".

Probably wishful thinking, but still...
