Instead of tax cuts? Maybe you missed the part where Obama's group cut taxes.

So... it's a budget... with no numbers?



The only numbers on the thing are in reference to the budget in question.

Even reporters from the right were wondering why they were even AT the press conference, and asking why there were no numbers in the budget. All the GOP's would say is "we'll have details next week".

The GOP has become the OP.

Any chance you would be willing to answer some questions in defense of the Messiah if we start an "ask gpamp" thread about your opinions of what he has done so far and what he is responsible for?

The Obama supporters seem to have left once the Messiah started backtracking on ALL of his campaign promises and you just now returned.

You up for it?

a) The guy's been in office for 2 months, and you already have your Obama hate goggles on. At least most of us on the left gave Bush 4 years. Maybe you hate Obama because he's black, maybe you hate him because he's the President of the United States, and you secretly hate America, I don't know, but...

b) I refuse to play your stupid game of "Paladin posts bullshit then expects everyone to fly around the internet trying to prove his bullshit to be bullshit".

We'll never agree, dude. Why do you care? You have Obama hate googles on, and those things are plastered to your brain.

PS: Why didn't you defend the fact that your party had no numbers in their BUDGET?? You should be defending that right now. Because even Bush, as Governor knew that there were numbers in budgets.

So asking about campaign promises he has already backtracked on is unfair? Hell, you gave Bush no chance, claimed he was lying when it was clear he hadn't, and now we are supposed to let the Messiah lie to us and not respond? That is why you are ridiculed so much on here, you are a hypocrite.

Considering the first post I've posted in months was "the GOP has a lame budget with no numbers" and all you can do is say "well what about __________", I'd say you're a horrible debate opponent. Either that, or I'm right, and you won't admit it, therefore you move to something completely different.

Everyone was with Bush until he invaded Iraq. We were united against 1 enemy, and he used that unification to do something that half the country disagreed with. THAT'S when over half the nation turned on him. Give Obama at least 2 years before you start reaming him for every little thing he does.

No sir. You've ALWAYS been the hypocrite, but you've also always been a manipulator, and attempt to slant everything in your direction. You're a liar, a hypocrite, and you're kind of a douchebag. You haven't changed, at least.

Yet there are STILL no numbers in that budget.

the GOP is now Sarah Palin, Michael "You da man!" Steele, Rush Limbaugh, and a numberless budget.

Sorry. Not my fault.

I love how the libs tried their damnedest to make Limbaugh the "leader" of the Republican Party, and it failed, big time. All it did was raise his ratings more than 20%, and dropped Barry's. You notice how they've backed off that, right?

No, the only hope that ANYBODY has is in themselves. (R)s are just as bad as the (D)s. I don't have any faith in the government. The only faith and hope I have, lie in God, my family and myself.

I'm sorry but THESE Republicans are the same ones that showed no fiscal discipline when they had control of both houses. It is one of the reasons they are no longer in control

Yes, Obama is ever worse when it comes to spending but it is a telling sign when the last balanced budget was under a Democratic President.

The fact is that neither party gives a shit about a balanced budget or capping the growth of government. BOTH parties are responsible for a huge growth in government over the last decade. Only Clinton reduced the size of the government and the budget.

Fuck'em both. When does the shooting start?

Why does it need numbers? It's the GOP budget plan. The GOP isn't in power anymore. Everything in it goes against the dems agenda so even if it had numbers, would it matter?

This is the equivalant of my wife and I getting in a car and she is driving. She wants to go to Garden Ridge and I want to go to the titty bar. Why would I bother asking what the cover charge is when I know that no matter what I say, we're still going to Garden Ridge?

haha, no, it's more like your wife wanting a new pair of $700 shoes, and you wanting a new plasma TV.

When she says "I'd like these $700 shoes, and I think we should get them, not your plasma tv." and you say "I think buying the plasma tv is a more economically sound decision" and she asks "how much is it?" and you say "I don't know."

For the sake of conversation gpamp, you should specify who you relate the objects of comparison to. shoes=R tv=D ?

Sorry, thought it was obvious that the party who doesn't have numbers in their budget would be the one who doesn't know the price of the TV.

You're out of your mind. Actually, it's wishful thinking on your part. Ron Paul is deader that disco, my friend. You will see conservatives come out of this that will make Reagan look like FDR. Barry is doing what no Republican could do...make the GOP rise from the ashes and be stronger than ever. Carter did the same thing in 1980.

Soon, I think. Something will happen at one of the TEA parties that ACORN raids and that will be the beginning of it all. A fight, stabbing or a shooting will set it all off. I am lickin' my chops. Too bad it probably won't happen here in little ole San Angelo. It might in Dallas though.

I'm tellin' ya man. This country is a slow building powderkeg. A totally fucked up economy is a damn good fuse for it. All it takes is a key assassination and BOOM. Politicians will over react (as they did with the Patriot act and the Stimulus bill) and try to go draconian on us. That's when it hits the fan.

I'm not advocating violence but I think the writing is on the wall. It is just a matter of time. People are starting to realize that they don't have control of this government. The financial sector of this country does. Taxpayers are nothing more than little pockets of revenue generation. All Goldman Sachs and others have to do is keep feeding a little cash to Congress.

You guys give ACORN way more credit, power, and duties than they have. I realize it was a catchphrase during the election, but damn. They're community organizers.

I mean...

"ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, is a community-based organization that advocates for better housing and wages for the poor, more community development investment from banks and governments, and better public schools."

Jesus. They might as well be terrorists!!

One thing you're missing though is why would she even bother asking how much the TV is?

She has the wallet. She makes the financial decisions. If she likes shoes (govt expansion and deficit spending) and hates plasma tv's (conservatism), why does the price of the TV matter? Her agenda is to waste money on a pair of shoes and she holds the credit card. His input on why the TV is better is a moot point. She has already made up her mind.

He could talk til he was blue in the face and all she would do is turn to him and say "I won. I've got the CC. I'll trump you on that...."

Well said. But the GOP budget came about because the President said "show me something". And they came up with a numberless budget.

Well then I still don't understand why they need Barry to get em off their ass. And I guess they had a good reason for keeping their "best candidate" over RP hidden this last go round. That didn't go so well for em...us.

Truth is, I think they need a "permission slip" from wall street to make a fair decision. "Fair" to the US citizens that is.

Talk is cheap because supply exceeds demand!

Barry will get them off their asses the same way Carter did. RP will be (is) too old. While I did, admittedly, agree with some of RP's principles, he didn't have a chance. You also know that McCain was not my guy, but better (far better) than what we have now. I voted against Barry, not "for" McCain. If RP had run against Barry, he would have had my vote, too. Hell, Fidel Castro would have gotten my vote, if we had known then what we know now.

Jesus. They might as well be terrorists!!
I used ACORN as an example, maybe because if this and several other places I have heard of:

Sounds like it is happening already.

Maybe people be from people more like this:

The guy who defends ACORN as not having much "credit, power, and duties" in the Obama administration and the current Democratic party thinks Rush Limbaugh runs the Republican party. Yeah, you are too stupid to be commenting on political issues dude.

ACORN is a very powerful force in your Messiah's administartion, just like the ACLU, Gay and Lesbian Rights groups, and all the other left wing crazies that have his ear.

How much money did ACORN get from the government and how much money did Rush get from the government in the last 8 years? (I bet you ignore this little question)

FYI, remember I don't listen to Rush, so don't go lying again like you did about me supporting Rudy. It cost blackie his pride when he took your lies on that little tidbit as fact a few montsh ago.

I have to agree with a quote from former Treasury Secretary William E. Simon: "Bad politicians are sent to Washington by good people who don't vote."

We need to turn this thread into a time capsule. Hits our email in 6 months, 12 months, 2 years, and 4 yes. Let's see exactly how many campaign promises are broken. Let's see where the taxes fall. Let's see where our economy is. Let's see how much of the private sector is highjacked by our ever growing government. I'll gladly admit I was wrong if proven.

All I know is I'm going to work much harder, make alot more money, and the government is going to take more than ever, and give it to those who don't work as hard. They will blow it, or pay bills with it. I would have invested it.

Let's all sit back and watch.

I'd gamble on the fact that you don't know the true answer to that question, yourself. You don't know how much money Rush got from the GOP to speak at their pep rally. You don't know if they're feeding money (or fed money, under the Bush admin.) to him under the table. You can never know that. And whatever number you pull to say ACORN recieved, is probably innacurate.

Your points are usually based in assumptions and outright lies.

Limbaugh doesn't get paid for that...he could buy the whole RNC out of his ass-pocket! LOL! Hell, last I saw, he made about $25 mil a year just off his radio show. He won't be bought, because he doesn't need the money. It's all for the exposure.

You're kidding right? Prove to me he didn't get paid.

Former presidents, most of whom are far wealthier than Limbaugh, get paid BIG bucks to speak at things like that. Why wouldn't Rush get paid? Exposure? If he's such a high paid entertainer, he doesn't need the exposure. He gets paid because a TON of people listen to him.

Are you fucking serious, dude? You're discounting anything he says based on assumptions and you just said it yourself. Come the fuck on man.

# $1 billion stashed away in Community Development Block Grant money that ACORN often vies for successfully.

# $10 million to develop or refurbish low-income housing, a specialty of ACORN’s.

# $4.19 billion to stave off foreclosures via the Neighborhood Stabilization Program. Vadum states the current version of the bill would allow nonprofits to compete with cities and states for $3.44 billion of the money. Some $750 million, however, would be exclusively reserved for nonprofits such as ACORN

I verified these numbers using the Wall Street Journal's 'Bailout Breakdown' graphic, for further proof.

The original point I was trying to make is that ACORN is not some secret organization that's pulling strings in the White House and bringing down the country, as Paladin and Blackedout think it is.
