Oh, and RINO Boner, DO Learn to Speak English!

Not much to add to Jackboot’s excellent rant below, His Imperial Majesty just has one request in general:

The next time the auto-fellating RINOs and their sycophantic “pragmatic” bloggers use the word “cut” or, even worse, “historic cut” about the pittance of spare change that Boner et al are crowing about, patting themselves on the back and preening like partridges, kindly kick them right square in the mouth.

The paltry $38.5 billion (out of well over $3.5 TRILLION) weren’t “cuts” in any useful definition of the word, but that’s what they want you to think.

A “cut” is a reduction in something that already exists, in the exact same way that extending the Bush tax cuts never, ever was a tax “cut” since we merely extended something already in existence.

A “budget cut” would have to be a reduction in the last existing budget, and Boner the Weeping RINO’s “victory” was nothing of the sort. It was a tiny, insignificant, utterly irrelevant reduction in a socialist fever dream that had never been passed. Heck, it hadn’t even been put up for a vote!

For Boner’s “cut” to be an actual cut, it would have to be a budget $38.5 billion lower than the budget for 2010.

In other words, the feckless RINO pussies just told the Democrat Socialist and their Führer, Ogabe, that OK, they can have the Lear Jet, the Lamborghini, the 40,000 sqft mansion, but they can’t have an ice cream cone.

THAT is the extent of Weepy Boner and his RINO Circus’ “victory.”

May they choke on it, and may their bones be left for vultures and coyotes.

Thatisall.

Your Majesty, It seems to be even worse than originally reported. We got rolled, in theory, because military pay would be blocked if the government was shut down. Pretty much everybody saw the solution as soon as it was brought up. Pass a bill separating out military pay as a single item that the Democrats would not dare be the… Read more »

While some in the Republican establishment are referring to Boehner as their “Sun-Tzu”, he is closer to Italian Marshal Graziani in North Africa in WW-II….

All of this is merely theatre. There is practically nothing the Republican Party can do while we hold only the House. Consequently, it is the 2012 elections that matter; we can only get the cuts we want if we hold the House, Senate and Presidency. There are a great number of incumbent democrats in the Senate up for election in… Read more »

The debt ceiling is a forgone conclusion. The Marxists will screech about Armageddon if it not raised and the RINOs (who want to be on the A list for parties) will roll over like a whipped dog. Paul Ryan can just give up because his budget is DOA and Bohner will just hang him out to dry anyway. Meet the… Read more »

That’s unfair. No one is as bad a commander as Rodolfo Graziani.

This all assumes that anybody, meaning the great unwashed, give a flying shit in 2012 about Boner’s gamesmanship or even remember it Maybe they won’t, but if Boehner shut down the government and the public blamed him they would sure as hell remember that. It isn’t a matter of courage. It is a matter of common sense. Only a fool… Read more »

Only a fool takes a wild chance when he is almost certain to win without it. And therein lies the flaw in your premise, Patton. The GOP is not “almost certain” to win it – not by anything even remotely resembling a longshot. Thanks to Dubya and his supplicative homage to “new tone” (i.e, capitulating to damn near everything the… Read more »

I’m going with Patton up at numbers 3 and 8. I believe there IS a plan, but we will need those magic numbers so as to be unbeatable.

Response to Darth Venomous @ 10: I’m looking to them getting a bit dirty here. I’m hoping that there will be the “Rommel, you magnificent bastard, I READ YOUR BOOK!” moment. Draw them in to the proper ambush position, and hit them hard.

On the plus side, the GOP did manage to jam Obamacare right up Harry Reid’s ass.

Part of the “budget deal” is a debate and vote in the Senate for its repeal.

Can’t say I’m very impressed with what has to be seen as a complete capitulation by these gutless wonders. The fact that they couldn’t make the obvious case that it was NDSWP intransigence in insisting we drive in to the fiscal abyss that would have been the cause of a government shut does not speak well of the command of… Read more »

#15 Elephant Man It is good if we can get the Democrats in the Senate on record as continuing to support Obamacare before the election.

Hugely OT, but seems worth mentioning …

You’ve probably seen this about the school shooting in Brazil

…but I had to go through the India Times to get the part that the MBM won’t allow to be uttered

Maybe not so hugely OT after all, since it’s just another example of our society committing suicide.

The so-called extension of the Bush tax cuts was nothing more than a lie as well. My federal retirement pay amounts, before deductions, to about $35K per annum, far from “rich man” territory. In fact, barely “middle class”. And guess what? My Federal income tax deduction increased this year as the Bush-era tax cuts miraculously failed to extend as advertised.… Read more »

Er, I don’t understand why everyone here is so pissed.
