GOP Limp Dicks Set to Cave Again

As hysteria over “the GOP’s refusal” to increase Ogabelini’s credit limit when all the NSDWP is asking for is tax hikes, thus making it the GOP’s fault that we’re about to default, explode, oceans running red with blood, old people falling off cliffs etc. ad nauseam, our friend Bill Quick predicts Weepy Boner and his GOP court jesters’ next step:

Now watch the GOP cave – again. And come away babbling that because they’ve “cut” the deficit by 3% annually over ten years, they’ve achieved a gigantic, resounding victory.

Yes, my expectations for these Boner Bozos are low. Aren’t yours?

We’d dearly love to say that we don’t agree, but we’ve long ago made the promise not ever to lie, so we can’t.

And we still remember the last “victory” of Weepy Boner’s which added up, once the creative book-keeping had been filtered out, to about $3.75 in actual savings. We also remember how that “victory” was immediately, by every “right wing” outfit, proclaimed to be something only slightly less momentous than the battle of Stalingrad.

We fully expect this to be no different.

Thatisall.

At a time when the federal government really needs to roll up it’s sleeves to make some cuts to the budget we get token cuts here and there that don’t amount to squat. At the same time they ignore the only two serious budget proposals from Congressman Paul Ryan and Sen. Rand Paul.

Prediction Time here. Any real cuts will come from DOD and will affect line bunnies what wear uniforms, not one single DOD civilian will be affected.

Anyone care to bet?

And the mask slips further from the ruling class countenance. Timothy Geithner complains that he and our ruling class betters will have to do without if we the people refuse to be robbed of more of our hard earned money The unmitigated arrogance of this innumerate jackass. But as we all know, to Tiny Tim, taxes are something only the… Read more »

LC fxpcpa, He’s got iit exactly right but backwards. Shrinking gummint is precisely why our taxes MUST NOT grow. By the way – you know why Little Tim got his job? I don’t know either, but … In April 1981, Stanley Ann Dunham was given a two year contract as a “program officer” with the Ford Foundation sponsoring her “research”… Read more »

Unfortunately you are probably right on the money on this one. Damn DOD civilians and contractors live high on the hog at the expense of those they are supposed to… Read more »

Well … at least they’re slowing down the rate of growth. They have an uphill battle when the D/s say they’re “sabotaging the ‘recovery'” and are making it stick. (I know, it’s a weak defense.)

LC Rurik, Knight of the Empiresays n April 1981, Stanley Ann Dunham was given a two year contract as a “program officer” with the Ford Foundation sponsoring her “research” in Indonesia. The director of the Ford Foundation’s Asia Program responnsible for that decision was Peter Geithner, Little Timmy’s daddy. I was going to say something completely different until I re-read… Read more »

they’ve achieved a gigantic, resounding victory.

But, but, but…even if it seems they’ve caved in, they’re merely saving their fire for the NEXT big, I tell you, BIG battle next time. /sarc

LC fxpcpa @10, Brilliant! thank you for that follow-up. I am certain you got the right guy Geithner. And so he’s a White Elephant – officially as well as colloquially. I cain’t help wondering if Pere Geitner’s name is one of thiose on a lost of recommendations in Little Barry’s sequestered Harvard application files. No, I don’t know, and can… Read more »

Good grief. The first and foremost thing this country needs to do is dramatically shrink the overall size of government. The way to do that is easy: End all foreign aid, and corporate welfare. End most government funded research. Cut wages and benefits of government employees Reduce the number of government jobs Get rid of needless programs including the department… Read more »

Those cuts would be a nice start but the only way to truly balance the federal budget is to take on so called mandatory spending such as medicare, medicaid and social security.
