crazyhead commented on the blog post Majority Think Republican Control of the House is Bad for the Country
Unfortunately these assholes are elected district by district. It’s going to be tough for the Dems to take back control after the redistricting that took place in 2010.
The Republican party is much better at concentrating on the long game than the Democrats are. The Dems made a pathetic effort in 2010 and now the country has to pay for it for a long time.
A real news organization would be asking why no one is going to jail. Executives at Chase, WAMU, and Bear Stearns approved and profited from all of this activity. Yet they are keeping all of their ill gotten gains. If Obama and the Justice Department had any balls or any sense of justice they would [...]
crazyhead commented on the blog post FDL Book Salon Welcomes Ellen Brown, The Public Bank Solution: From Austerity to Prosperity
It’s hard to imagine that states like Texas, Florida, North Carolina, etc. wouldn’t politicize these banks the same way they politicize everything else. They would make them havens for business cronies, climate change deniers, Christian fundamentalists, and gun nuts.
The take away from this speech, Obama’s going to cut SS and Medicare. He’s wanted to do this since he was first elected. It is the only part of this entire speech that he can accomplish. It’s what will make him the most money after he leaves office.

Wow, people away from home getting laid and doing drugs. What would our founding fathers say? Thomas Jefferson… Ben Franklin… oh yeah, they did the same shit.
Once Obama’s policies lead to another Republican victory in the off year elections Obama can use the right wing majorities in both houses to enact even more of his “centrist” programs. Then he’ll leave office and cash in his chips with his 1% pals.
For Jay Carney to say that this reflects the people’s will is an out an out lie. The people are overwhelming against making cuts to SS and Medicare.

Obamabot meme: “Must hate Clinton…must hate Clinton…”
Because Obama sucks by any comparison.

The MSM constantly rewards the people who are constantly wrong as long as they constantly tout the position of the 1%.
crazyhead commented on the blog post The Grand Confusion: The “Fiscal Cliff” is an Austerity Program
A big part of the problem is not that the conservatives live in an information bubble but that the MSM buys into that bubble. There were no talks of austerity when Bush busted the budget and ran the deficit and the debt up. This only becomes a problem when a Democrat is in office. The reason is that the ravings from inside the right wing bubble are bought into by the MSM.
If there is a deficit under a Republican administration it’s no big deal, under a Democratic administration it’s the end of the world.
If dozens of people are killed at American embassies during a Republican administration, well shit happens. If there is the same sort of activity during a Democratic administration it’s a scandal and proof that the Democratic president is incompetent.
If the lunatics inside the right wing information bubble say that something is a problem/scandal then the MSM repeats the lunacy as if handed down from on high.
crazyhead commented on the blog post Now Democrats Have the Big Electoral College Advantage
Republicans never give up and never back down. (As compared to Democrats who can’t wait to give up and back down.)
Look for Republicans governing in swing states to work hard to change the way their electoral college votes are divided. This was talked about in Pennsylvania and it is being talked about today in Ohio. Wisconsin, Michigan, and Iowa will probably take a look at this scheme.
Republicans in swing states will try to prevent Democrats from a winner take all electoral vote count. Republicans in the South will keep to a winner take all system.

Any settlement that does not include felony admissions and jail time for bank execs is total bullshit.

Well, Brad Sherman just lost my vote. I was going to voter for him over Berman but now I’m leaving the space blank.
crazyhead commented on the blog post Stripping Away Political Debate, Romney Lied on a Federal Form
If Mitt says he didn’t do any work I believe him. I mean we’ve all had a job someplace where a lazy, no talent, frat boy type with connections would have the big title and the big paycheck and not do a goddamn thing. That’s the sort of executive Mitt says he was and just the sort of president he’d be. Anyone who can’t handle that is promoting class warfare.
I gave up reading most of our “progressive” writers when they fell for Obama’s bullshit in ’08 and became knee jerk Obamabots. Some just didn’t seem so bright others were obvious careerists.

Heat doesn’t bother conservatives since their vision for America is a living hell.
crazyhead commented on the blog post On Eve of Contempt Vote, Revelation that Fast and Furious Is a Convenient Fiction
Obama, Reid, and Pelosi played “paddycake” the with Republicans. Now the right is playing hardball. The Dems pride themselves on NOT impeaching Bush, NOT holding the banks accountable, NOT standing up for the constitution. Now they are paying the price. They did not look like the only adults in the room. They just look like weak chumps who are gonna get punked.
crazyhead commented on the blog post Don’t Expect Wide Popular Outrage Towards an “Activist” Court
Let me get this straight. The same people that Obama told to go fuck themselves while he passed a Heritage Foundation Health Care Law that these people didn’t want are now supposed to be outraged that the right wing partisan jerks on the Supreme Court are going to undo this crappy bill. Sounds completely logical if you’re a corporate Democrat.
crazyhead commented on the blog post Earth to the President: voters and donors you need are checking out of the process
“Wake the F up, people. Do you really want Romney as President?!”
No, wake the F up, Democratic Party!
I will not vote for Obama! I don’t care if Satan, or his Mormon equivalent, is running against him. Obama and the Dems have been a disaster over the past 3 1/2 years. It’s time to throw out the whole leadership and start over.
Pres. Obama has treated the liberal wing of the party like lepers for his whole 1st. term and now his campaign and Obamabots are telling us we have to vote for him. Guess what, we don’t and many of us won’t. That’s not our fault it’s his. So, please, don’t tell me to, “Wake the F up,” Obama’s problem is that I have been awake.
Do I, “Really want Romney as President?!” No, but apparently Obama does.
