Elected D's are abadoning their posts like rats bailing from a sinking ship.

First they have left Wisconsin and now they have left Indiana.  WTF ?

I hear they will be bailing from Ohio next.

The whole place is upside down.  Now Democrats don't want to vote ?

This is really the best exhibition of sore loosers ever witnessed in American politics.

And they will probably want to get paid while partying hiding in other states rather than showing up and doing their elected job.

The Teachers on strike in Wisconsin have even gotten sympathetic doctors to write them phony excuses to say they were sick while protesting.

And Obama has given his blessings to this behaviuor.

This is freaking insane.  And these are adults ?

VP Biden explained that there was no question that the $$$ was distributed correctly, or that it wasn't account for, just that it wasn't filed correctly.

I have worked for companies that have launched software programs which take months to get straightened out.

Yes, I will criticize. As I did Mr. Bush, Mr. Clinton, Mr. Bush before, Mr. Reagan, Mr. Carter...and those before. Yes, I will. I refuse to see this administration with blinders. I have not afforded any other administration, Congress, Party, invidual, a free pass when they did something that warrants comment and criticisms when appropriate. Especially if it involves The People.

When you have to throw something together...        As in TARP, the stimulus, and now, a massive overhaul of our health care system with the Government, from which it is ridiculous to expect perfection (or competence, efficiency, predictions...), offering proposals no one can truly follow. If the past serves as a guide to the future, expect any bill of the sort resting in The House and under initial review by The Senate, to morph beyond its original scope and intent and to explode a new hole in a bleeding-to-death spending spiral.

Ok, we must believe VP Biden only because he said it was, for the most part, done correctly. And how does that excuse what should be a Congressional Investigation into the creation of new Congressional Districts, some of which are listed as having jobs saved/created? You don't make that degree of error without a purpose.
This has the distinct stench of typical Chicago-style politics. You know, where the dead arise on Election Day to vote blue.

You have to be purposefully inexact to create whole Congrssional Districts.

I don't see anything that makes this guy a Communist.  His worst sin was signing on to a document that raises the far fetched suspicion that the US government looked the other way as 9/11 happened.  Even then, it calls for an investigation rather than making a condemnation.  If everyone who subscribes to a paranoid CT is a Communist, then we're a Marxist state right now.  I'm not aware of it.

Calling Republicans assholes doesn't make anyone a Communist, nor does comparing Bush to a drug addict.  As if even worse terms haven't been used on Democrats!  It's just a symptom of the nasty political climate that exists now.

Obama has retained the Secretary of Defense from the Bush administration.  He has reappointed Ben Bernanke, a Republican, to the chairmanship of the Federal Reserve.  My God, that must make Obama a closet...Republican!!!

 

Mr. Jones declared himself to be a Communist. No one's words or thoughts, smear or slander. Simply Mr. Jones confession on the matter.

I don't consider myself a truther or a wild conspiracy theorist, but really, is it too much to ask why, fifty minutes after the WTC was hit, Washington D.C. was left completely unprotected? I understand DOD was running war games that day, but damn, our fighters have a range of about 1500 miles an hour.

 
I agree completely that it's not too much to ask why this happened.  Along with a lot of other hard questions about the whole disaster. 

But, turf wars, personal rivalries, arrogance, butthole obstinacy, self-delusion, bad organization, and good old incompetence - you know, the usual - should be thoroughly considered before entertaining the concept of malicious conspiratorial motives.

How about his own declaration to that effect?
“I met all these young radical people of color – I mean really radical, communists and anarchists. And it was, like, ‘This is what I need to be a part of… I spent the next ten years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary…I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th, and then the verdicts came down on April 29th..By August, I was a communist.”
 
And...?  The rest of the story?  Plenty of people have moved to the center, or even the right, after their student activist days.  David Horowitz is one of the more famous examples.

What's the guy now?   Looks like he embraces eco-capitalism

Here's another of his declarations, from his book, The Green Collar Economy :

"So in the end, our success and survival as a species are largely and directly tied to the new eco-entrepreneurs - and the success and survival of their enterprises. Since almost all of the needed eco-technologies are likely to come from the private sector, civic leaders and voters should do all that can be done to help green business leaders succeed. That means, in large part, electing leaders who will pass bills to aid them. We cannot realistically proceed without a strong alliance between the best of the business world -and everyone else."

We need enterpreneurs - to survive, even
Needed technologies will come from the private sector
The populace and its leaders should help certain business leaders succeed  
We need an alliance between the business world and everyone else

If you didn't know the author, you'd think this came from a Chamber of Commerce.   And that's probably why the Obama administration hired him.
