Although there are many who are vocal in their criticism of how the authorities are handling the Christmas Day underwear bomber (specifically, reading him his Miranda rights) - there is no difference in how he is being handled by the current administration versus how Richard Reid (the shoe bomber) was handled under the previous administration. 

The strident criticism is, in fact, hypocritical.

You bitch, pissed and moaned about the Republicans when they were in office, spending $400 billion on the war. I'll give you the Iraq part, not Afghanistan that is a given.

So what's your problem now? The Democrats have been in charge of both houses and can't get anything done amongst themselves. They're dropping like fly's before the midterm election, before they get their heads handed to them by the American public for bankrupting this once mighty and proud nation. We are in such a hole right now that it will take our Great, Great, Great grandchildren to pay the Chinese off for their stupidity. Is this something to be proud of?

I want to see you over spend the way they do on your income and budget. You'll be thrown so fast into incarceration you'll ask "where's my kiss"?

 The only thing that they can do is SPEND SPEND SPEND. At last count, Nancy the queen is condensation, has put through $4 Trillion, I said $4 TRILLION not Billion as under the Republicans.

So lets say "It's the economy stupid". Well we have the major idiot from our state in charge as the Chairman of the House Finance Committee. Freddie Mac. Fanny Mae and Wall Street all fell under his watch after repeatingly being told 2 years in advance of the collapse what was about to happen. Ineffectual to say the least in his duties.

So when you blame the Republicans for this mess the trouble is on both sides of this dysfunctional legislative branch.

I'll still stay with the billions spent by the Republicans over the TRILLIONS wasted by the Democrats.

Looks like you've been listening to the lying Republican liars on radio and TV.  The 3 GOP Presidents Reagan, Bush 1 and 2,  took our national debt from about $1 trillion to $11 Trillion.

NATIONAL DEBT

Reagan 1980-1988 $1>$3 trillion

Bush 1- 1988-1992 $3>$5 Trillion

Clinton -1992-2000 $5>$5 trillion

Bush 2 -2000-2008 $5>$11 trillion

After the Republicans have brought the US economy down from 25 years of Voodoo Trickle Down economics of huge tax cuts for the super-rich and deregulation of the banks and everything else,  we now have to spend hundreds of billions to jump start the economy again.

If the stimulus is a failure then why have 110 Republican congressmen praised it IN THEIR OWN STATE—- after they voted against it??

The stimulus has saved 100s of thousands of state jobs like teachers, police and firemen.

In 1929 after 3 Republican Presidents with huge tax cuts on the super rich and deregulation of the banks we had a bank, real estate and stock market boom and crash. Sound familiar?
 Hoover, like a good Republican, sat on his hands for 3 years while the economy kept plummeting-down to 25% unemployment by the time FDR got in in 1933.  His New Deal brought the unemployment rate down to 12% and then WW2 in 1941 was a huge stimulus that dwarfed our current one. We then had 100% employment.

 Another expose' of  Republicon blatant hypocrisy today that the Corporate Media will never cover or report.  
Every human is guilty of lies and hypocrisy. But the Republicans have mastered it to an artform.

How else could they get so many votes from the middle class when they really represent the interests of the wealthy top 2% and their transnational corporate campaign contributors??

The # 1 BIGGEST and most consistent Republican Hypocrisy:
The Budget and National Debt!
Bernie Sanders sets them straight in this Congressional speech In Feb. 2010


by MinistryOfTruth

  Wed Feb 10, 2010 at 04:52:31 PM PST

    I've got to hand it to Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), he knocks it out of the park on this. Republicans with their phony deficit concerns want to put the blame of their failed Conservative policies on Democrats and President Obama. But the money quote is right here.

    "I really don't like being lectured on deficits when you (Sen. Gregg) and many members of your party (Republicans) helped cause the situation we are in right now."

~snip~

    "Please, please, spare the lectures on deficit reduction."

    ~ Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT)

 


Sen. Sanders (I-VT):
    "Let me begin by saying something to my friend Senator Gregg, through the chairman, through the chairman. I really don't like being lectured on deficits when you (Sen. Gregg) and many members of your party (Republicans) helped cause the situation we are in right now. "

    "People voted, Senator Gregg, I believe you are one of them,
for a war in Iraq, which some people will think will cost two or three trillion dollars, but you forgot to pay for that war.

You and other people voted for tax breaks for the wealthiest 1%, costs $600 billion dollars, forgot to pay for that.

You voted for a prescription drug medicare bill which will cost $400 billion dollars but doesn't negotiate prices with the pharmaceutical industry, forgot to ask how that was going to be paid for,

you voted for the $700 Wallstreet bailout

and I believe you want to repeal the inheritance tax, which will cost a trillion dollars over a ten year period, benefiting the top 3/10ths of 1%
. I voted against all of those things, so please, please, spare the lectures on deficit reduction."

    Later in the video, Senator Sanders mentions the fact that America's top 1% of wealthiest citizens earns more income the bottom 50% COMBINED. RNC Chairman Micheal Steele says that a million dollars after tax isn't that much money, but it is, a lot more than it was before George W. Bush's and the so called Fiscal Conservatives passed tax cuts for the rich without considering how that would affect America's ability to raise the revenue needed to balance the budget. Of course, Fiscal Conservatives will claim that all one needs to do is cut spending too, unless it is for war. But if war is so necessary why isn't health care reform, or cutting back on pollution, or a number of other issues. Maybe it is because the only thing fiscally conservative about so called fiscal conservatives is the fact that they insist on calling themselves fiscal conservatives.

    In the real world, taking something without paying for it is called STEALING. It's like Robin Hood in reverse, fiscal conservatives like to rob from the poor and give to the rich.

    But what so called fiscal conservatives are really trying to do can be best summed up by the example I have provided below.

    Imagine sharing an apartment with someone and going grocery shopping and then watching your roommate, who didn't spend a dime of his own money, clean out the fridge while you are at work. When you get home and discover what has happened your roommate immediately blames you for the mess and then insists that whatever food is left must be rationed between the two of you. And your roommate will not let you cook what you want, only what he wants.

    The same story works with booze as well, and would be appropriate, because the so called Fiscal Conservatives of the GOP and their BushDog/ConservaDem counterparts have spent like drunken sailors on shore leave when in power, and only when they are out of power and beginning to sober up do they start actually caring about deficits and debt, but fortunately, they don't ever remember what caused those deficits. How can they remember that THEY caused the deficits if they are trying to blame it on Democrats and the current Administration?

    The best way to counter this move by Conservatives to try and blame Democrats for our deficits and hamstring our ability to pass our agenda is to simply tell the truth. The truth is that so called Fiscal Conservatives such as George W. Bush, Ben Nelson, Judd Gregg and Eric Cantor didn't even try to pay for any of their plans, instead they left all of their deficits on the White House front door

More blatant Republican hypoocrisy

REPORT: After Voting To Kill Recovery, 110 GOP Lawmakers Tout Its Success, Ask For More Money
ThinkProgress has investigated opponents of the Recovery Act, reporting throughout the year that many of the lawmakers who tried to kill the legislation have been returning to their home states to claim credit for popular stimulus programs. In a new research report, ThinkProgress finds that over half of the GOP caucus, 110 lawmakers - from the House and Senate - are guilty of stimulus hypocrisy. Among some of the key findings:

- Top Republican Senate Recruits Are Stimulus Hypocrites: As ThinkProgress reported, Rep. Mike Castle (R-DE), a candidate for Senate, touted over $5 million in stimulus programs he voted to kill. Rep. Mark Kirk (R-IL), the GOP nominee for Senate in Illinois, signed a letter urging Gov. Pat Quinn to provide "Recovery Act (ARRA) funding to expand the Illinois Community College Sustainability Network."

- GOP Leadership Leads The Way In Hypocrisy: Although he regularly slams the stimulus as a waste while in DC, McConnell has returned to Kentucky to take credit for stimulus programs, even taking time to request more funds. ThinkProgress attended two job fairs held by Cantor, where we found dozens of employers able to hire directly because of the stimulus. Indeed, even Boehner's office released a statement boasting that the stimulus will create "much needed jobs."

- The Audacity Of Hypocrisy Knows No Bounds: Many opponents of the stimulus have been quite brazen with their ability to try to claim credit for the program. For instance, Rep. Jack Kingston (R-GA) spent the morning of July 28th railing against the stimulus, yelling "Where's the stimulus package? Where's the jobs?" on the House floor. On the same day of his rant, Kingston's office sent out multiple press releases bragging that he had secured hundreds of thousands in stimulus funds to hire additional police officers in his district. Other stimulus opponents, like Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-GA) - who has called the stimulus a "trillion dollar debt bill" - have printed out jumbo-sized ceremonial stimulus checks to present to local communities to try to garner positive press.

Individually, over half of the entire Republican caucus has hailed nearly every aspect of the stimulus as a success - from infrastructure funds, to food programs, to education grants. But politically, admitting its success might harm the GOP's chances in November. So with Republicans fixated on winning politically, they have focused on deceiving the public by calling the stimulus a failure, while pretending successful programs aren't stimulus funded.
