The DNC – Unforced Errors Edition

Well, the convention is over and it was a spectacle to be sure. Along with buttons that read “Once you vote black, you never go back”, we were witness to the following dysfunction:

– Delegates booing the forced inclusion of God back into the platform along with recognition of Jerusalem, which not only enraged the Jews but the Palestinians as well.

– DWS lying through her teeth which did not please Israel

– Health Sec. Kathleen Sebelius stating that prior to Obamacare, being a woman was a pre existing condition and that motherhood was a liability. I am sure that warms the hearts of many great mothers out there.

– Sandra Fluke stating that prior to forcing religious institutions to pay for abortifacients, women were lost in the wilderness of an oppressive society.

– Gov. Jennifer Granholm auditioning for Glee

– Joe Biden forgetting to speak in the past tense with respect to his father.

– And Mr. Obama hitting the replay button on his 2008 nomination speech absent the Greek columns and reverberation.

The convention truly did have all the elements of an NBC mini series complete with the maniacal red headed step sister, the crazy uncle, the drunk aunt, and the arrogant cousin, which was all set up by the MSNBC crew who began the morning celebrating alcohol from a bar. They really have coined a new definition for the term political “party”.

    They even had some lame attempts at slight-of-hand magic — of the budgetary type:

    OBAMA: “I’ll use the money we’re no longer spending on war to pay down our debt and put more people back to work — rebuilding roads and bridges, schools and runways.

    That may sound great to the dumbed-down masses, but there is no pile of money there, The wars were paid for with BORROWED money. So even if not a single dime is spent from now on on war (something that would please just about everyone), the money he would spend on roads and bridges, schools and runways is still going to be borrowed. And if borrowing doesn’t stop and actually go negative (a surplus), the debt is just going to continue to grow, not get paid down.

      Well that line certainly contradicts their persistent claim that the wars were put on a credit card, doesn’t it? But no worries, the media will point that out ……….. oh wait.

      ” And if borrowing doesn’t stop and actually go negative (a surplus), the debt is just going to continue to grow, not get paid down.”

      In your opinion Spook, what are the chances that this will happen under a new Presidential administration?

        G, IMO, the best we can hope for under a Romney administration is to slow the rate of growth unless the Republicans get a working majority in both the House and the Senate. I really do think that Romney would love to solve the debt problem we face, in stark contrast to Obama, for whom the debt not only isn’t a problem, it’s actually part of an overall strategy to “fundamentally transform the United States of America”.

        I think if we’re ever going to actually turn the country around, we’re going to have to go back to the mindset that prevailed in the GOP from 1995-2000. I think the Tea Party Caucus realizes that, but there are still too many establishment types in both the House and the Senate for that view to prevail unless the leadership in the WH turns them in that direction. The one thing I can say with a great deal of confidence is that a Romney Presidency couldn’t be any worse than the last 3-1/2 years.

        . The one thing I can say with a great deal of confidence is that a Romney Presidency couldn’t be any worse than the last 3-1/2 years.

        the only thing that could be would be the resurrection of joe, mao,adolph, OR another 4 years of Ochimpy.

        Interest on national debt projected to explode

        The Washington Post:

        Interest payments on the national debt will quadruple in the next decade and every man, woman and child in the United States will be paying more than $2,500 a year to cover for the nation’s past profligacy, according to figures in President Obama’s new budget plan.

        Starting in 2014, net interest payments will surpass the amount spent on education, transportation, energy and all other discretionary programs outside defense…. Only the amounts spent on defense and Social Security would remain bigger under the president’s plan.

        Unlike with discretionary spending or even entitlement programs, the line item for interest payments cannot be altered except through other budget cuts.

        The phenomenon is a bit like running up the down escalator. Without interest payments, the president’s plan would balance the budget by 2017. But net interest payments that year are expected to reach $627 billion, up from $207 billion in the current fiscal year.

        “We’re running a gigantic deficit, and we’re not growing very fast,” said Kenneth Rogoff, an economics professor at Harvard University and former chief economist at the International Monetary Fund.

        “We’re on a dramatically unsustainable path.”

        Again Spook, in your opinion, what would an acceptable level of deficits for the next administration to be considered successful?

        In my opinion, the trillion dollar deficits are here to stay. Also in my opinion, the next administration will be more than happy to exercise the power that has been given to it by executive order.

        I will be pleasantly surprised if this were not true in either case but it is not the nature of governments to give up power voluntarily.

        The bar keeps getting lower. Low much lower can it go?

        When do you plan to run for office GMB?

      • neocon1 September 7, 2012 / 4:53 pm
