They express their dismay that information is coming out way too soon, and folks won’t have enough details to make an informed -or any- decision. What they’re really worried about is the backlash that will hit the Dem-controlled Senate when people find out their premiums are going to skyrocket (see Dem Senator Wyden’s comments at the end of the quote).

What’s not to like? Never had a job that produced anything; only sucked off the public teat, or that of progressive agenda-funders. He’s cast from the same mold as the Dear Leader, so it’s only natural he’d be the selection.

UPDATED: See the pic at the end for a different presentation of what sequester cuts will mean to federal spending. Hint: not much.
Barack Obama himself said we can’t go from “one manufactured crisis to another.” Dewey from Detroit has a little story to explain what’s going on:

And, more than twice as many people are killed with hands and fists than are killed with rifles. Could it be that people really kill other people, with whatever they can find, and the Democrat’s attempt to ban certain types of rifles is really just misguided self-serving demagoguery? The Reverend Al Sharpton wanted to go after knives after they ban handguns and rifles. What’s next? Licenses to carry an assault hammer?

Michelle Obama basically said that Republicans are rampant liars when it comes to defending Americans’ right to vote (White House Dossier). Of course, as is the pattern with liberals, she didn’t give even one supporting bit of evidence to back her claim. It’s just the seriousness of the allegation that makes it newsworthy to the liberal media.

Note: It’s sad, but I found myself debating whether to post this, as I’ll probably be seen as racist by some folks for bringing it up.
Or, should it really matter? Apparently, it does matter in Jesse Jackson Jr’s Chicago-area district. Black leaders there are lamenting the number of black candidates for Jackson’s seat, afraid that the black vote will be split among them, and the one white candidate will sneak away with a plurality. Can you imagine someone saying “we can’t afford to lose a white voice in Congress?” Does it really matter what race a Congressional representative is, so long as they represent the interests of their constituents?

Looks like the Dems are getting desperate in Florida.

At the recent DNC and in media channels, democrats repeat the claim that the bailout of Government Motors and Chrysler saved 1.5 million jobs in the U.S. The editors at NRO debunk that false claim, and others about the auto industry bailout, which was a bad deal for taxpayers and bondholders.
Vampire Capitalism is Good When You Benefit: Major State and Municipal Pension Funds Invest over $1 Billion with Bain Capital
By marfdrat on September 4, 2012
Democrat operatives in the Obama campaign have wailed long and loud about Mitt Romney and the “vampire capitalists” at Bain Capital. Funny, though, when it comes to investing their funds, outfits normally associated with the Democrat party seem to think investing with Bain is a smart idea. Deroy Murdock of the New York Post takes a look at some of the organizations that invest with Bain Capital.

David Burge -also known as Iowahawk- tweeted this weekend: “Paul Ryan represents Obama’s most horrifying nightmare: Math.”
Erick Erickson explains why Paul Ryan as VP is a stroke of genius for the Romney campaign.

I wonder why no one in the media is interested in his financial background? The guy’s been in the senate since 1987, and never made more than the current $174,000 salary. So how’d he get to be worth $10 million? I saw somewhere on the internet where he’s had some shady financial dealings – it’s a pretty reliable source, so I think it’s up to Reid to prove he hasn’t done anything illegal.

Mike Shannon tries to divine reason from the Democrat’s insistence that requiring photo ID to vote, or requiring a woman to view an ultrasound of her unborn child before an abortion is some kind of infringement of “rights.” Last time I checked, neither voting nor access to abortion were rights – they’re privileges. Though I hesitate to classify the ability to end the life of another human as a privilege, that is unfortunately where we are as a society today.

Just when you thought America’s opinion of Congress couldn’t get any lower, there’s a new Rasmussen poll that says random names drawn from the phone book would do a better job.

This is a great history lesson. Despite the left’s attempts to tag Republicans as racist, fascist and greedy, history shows us the real truth. Bill Whittle does a great job giving the facts. Thanks to Michael Fletcher for the tip.
The Stark Divide Between Classical Liberalism and Progressivism: The Tea Party vs. Occupy Wall Street
By marfdrat on December 3, 2011
Here’s a great video presentation from Declaration Entertainment on the stark philosophical differences between the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street. The divide between classical liberalism (what we know today as conservatism) and the progressivism that’s embraced by our president, his party, and the Occutards could not be more clearly demonstrated. It’s about six minutes long, and worth the time.
