The question comes to mind:
How is Solyndra different than the hundreds of billions or trillions of dollars spent over the last decade on defense contracts to develop weapons, vehicles, planes, etc, that have failed or have never been built. Solyndra was a very public failure. If any of you GOPers knew how many defense projects are started, paid for in billions but never made it into production or on the battle field – would that would really pi$$ you off?!

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, venturing into late-night comedy with a visit to NBC’s “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” on Friday. When asked for her thoughts on Paul Ryan, the Wisconsin congressman that Mitt Romney has picked for his running mate, Mrs. Pelosi said:“I don’t really know him well because I’ve never been to the gym.”
HEE- HAWWH!!… HEE- HAWWH!!…
(Whew… sorry. We continue:)
Mr. Ryan is well known in Washington circles for his pre-dawn House gym workouts. Mr. Fallon egged on the longtime California congresswoman, asking if she’d seen her House colleague shirtless.“Oh please,” she said.
HEE- HAWWH!!… HEE- HAWWH!!…
“You know, I did at one time consider a career in comedy. I remember the first time I saw Don Rickles’ album,‘Hello Dummy’— I couldn’t help feel Rickles was reaching out to me in some psychic manner. Unfortunately I got side-tracked by my first botched plastic surgery, after the wrong parts came in the mail. So I had to put the comedy idea on hold. But I did run into Rickles before tonight’s show, and I ran my Ryan jokes by him. He said,‘Nancy, now I know why they have handicapped parking in front of the gym. I could never figure it out, until you just mentioned it.’ He’s funny. But I did finally get my opportunity to make a supreme clown of my self during the two years I was Speaker of the House — so the ‘Hello Dummy’ thing may not have been too far out after all. So Jimmy, you want to see my abs? Here, see?… How about my boobs?— Come on, take a peek…"
“Jimmy? Where are you going?…
Where’d he go?….”
Oh God!…. BLEEHHH!! Oh my God!….
(MUSIC UP: Fallon’s misogynist band plays the song “Lying Ass Bitch” they are so fond of playing when introducing women on the show)

Unearthed Video Shows Obama Supporting Late-Term Abortions
by Steven Ertelt | Washington, DC | LifeNews.com | 8/22/12 5:14 PM
“The Washington Post reports that President Obama is running his reelection campaign as a “culture warrior,” trying to cast his opponents as extremists on such issues as abortion in the case of rape and requiring religious institutions to pay for contraception. But could Obama’s own extremism on abortion come back to bite him?” McCormack asks.
As an Illinois state senator, Obama was so supportive of late-term abortions, he resisted efforts to protect unborn children born alive after failed abortion procedures.
When Obama opposed a bill to stop infanticide as a member of the Illinois legislature, he said he did so because it reportedly contained language that would have contravened the Roe v. Wade decision. However, documents uncovered during the 2008 election show Obama has misrepresented his position.
Obama, as a member of the Illinois Senate, opposed a state version of the federal Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, a measure that would make sure babies who survive abortions are given proper medical care.
It also protected babies who were “aborted” through a purposeful premature birth and left to die afterwards.

Frank that is real stupid talk ?
#46157 Aug 23, 2012
Exactly how is he owning it by still blaming Bush? You talk out of both sides of your mouth. Typical of the Libtads.
More jobs are heading overseas because of Obama's constant war on business. Obama is fixing nothing. Unemployment is still at 8.3% with no end in sight. Actual unemployment is near 13% when you include the people that have stopped looking for work.
People like you are sheep. Just doing what your told so you can keep sucking on the welfare teet.
I could say you were stupid, but that would be an insult to the stupid.

A Moral Outrage
Senate Democrats Poised for Power Grab
Senate Democrats are going to be working over the Christmas break to deliver a lump of coal to the American people in the form of a radical changing of the Senate’s rules. This is a naked power grab by liberals in the Senate pure and simple.
The National Journal reports that Senate Democrats are laying the groundwork to chip away at the filibuster on January 5, 2011. They are going to push the idea that a simple majority of the Senate can abolish the filibuster rules, or radically change the rules, in a new Congress.
All Democratic senators returning next year have signed a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., urging him to consider action to change long-sacrosanct filibuster rules. The letter, delivered this week, expresses general frustration with what Democrats consider unprecedented obstruction and asks Reid to take steps to end those abuses. While it does not urge a specific solution, Democrats said it demonstrates increased backing in the majority for a proposal, championed by Sen. Tom Udall, D-N.M., and others, to weaken the minority’s ability to tie the Senate calendar into parliamentary knots.
They are angry that they could not railroad through the Senate legislation imposing Card Check, a Public Option for ObamaCare and Climate Change. Now it is pay back time
Ironically, it is Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) who has caused the unprecendented number of Senate filibusters with his strong arm tactics. Bill Wichterman, former high ranking Senate Republican leadership staffer and expert in the Senate’s rules, wrote over at at National Review Online in a piece titled “Blame Ried, Not Republicans, for ‘Obstructionism‘” that Reid is to blame for the large numbers of filibusters over the past two years.
We’ve all heard the complaint: Republicans are the “Party of No.” But the GOP’s historic number of filibusters is the only viable response to Sen. Harry Reid’s unprecedentedly authoritarian rule of the Senate. Senator Reid has blocked the minority from amending bills more than any Senate majority leader in history — and more times than the last four Senate majority leaders combined.
Wichterman explains the way Senator Reid has abused his authority as Majority Leader to stifle the free amendment process in the Senate. Republicans responded with filibusters.
Yes I know this says 2010

Understanding the Filibuster – And Why it Has to Go
130 Filibusters Attempts in Last Two Years – That’s Around 129 Too Many
Between January 9th, 2010 and the end of the year, the 111th Congress has registered a whopping 132 moves to filibuster. That means 132 senators formally threatened to take to the Senate floor to rant for hours on end in order to halt the political process. By way of contrast, in the entire period of 1955-1961, this happened just once. But back then, a filibuster was a filibuster — any senator who wanted to prevent a vote on a bill that the majority was about to pass actually had to get up and talk, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington-style: Video
Now, nothing of the sort — in fact or fiction — ever happens.
Now, US Senate rules have gradually mutated to allow a mere threat of a filibuster to grind proceedings to a halt. This effectively means that each and every bill that passes the Senate must have a minimum of 60 votes (that’s how many it takes to override a filibuster). Clearly, this isn’t democratic. Over the last 20 years, the use of the filibuster has risen exponentially, utilized both by Democrats and Republicans when each party is in power. Liberals point to the last couple years as being particularly egregious, but the trend for falling back on the filibuster has been growing for decades now. Neither party’s hands are clean.
To put all this in context, Independent Vermont Senator Bernie Sander’s 8-hour speech protesting tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans wasn’t even an official filibuster — there was never any motion to cloture. It evoked the principles of a filibuster and it embodied what a filibuster should be, but it didn’t obstruct the bill’s passage. However, it was undeniably a stirring piece of political theater.
