PatriotPost.US BS from BO: "Too often, the Republican leadership in the United States Senate chooses to filibuster our recovery and obstruct our progress. Think about what these stalling tactics mean for the millions of Americans who've lost their jobs since the recession began. Over the past several weeks, more than two million of them have seen their unemployment insurance expire. ... They say we shouldn't provide unemployment insurance because it costs money. So after years of championing policies that turned a record surplus into a massive deficit, including a tax cut for the wealthiest Americans, they've finally decided to make their stand on the backs of the unemployed." --Barack Obama
The BIG Lie: "The fact is, most economists agree that extending unemployment insurance is one of the single most cost-effective ways to help jumpstart the economy. It puts money into the pockets of folks who not only need it most, but who also are most likely to spend it quickly." --Barack Obama
"What they don't know can't hurt us": "The vast majority of the American people and a lot of people really involved don't even know what's inside the packages." --Vice President Joe Biden, when asked by ABC's Jake Tapper if the administration "is getting enough credit" for the financial bill, the health care bill and the "stimulus"
Predictions: "I don't think the losses are going to be bad at all. I think we're going to shock the heck out of everybody." --Vice President Joe Biden on the November elections
Non Compos Mentis: "[Democrats] are against anything that could cut off a path to citizenship for hard-working people in this country. I'm talking about people that just -- don't just work hard, many of these people have served in the military. They have been injured. They have lost their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan. ... Let's not punish these people who have given so much so you and I can enjoy the freedoms we currently have." --Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC) claiming that Demos oppose Arizona's immigration law because illegals serve in the military -- except they can't
Nothing to see here: "I think that any information you have in that regard is absolutely without foundation. That may be someplace, but it's not here in Nevada." --Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid claiming there aren't illegal construction workers in Nevada
What's in a name? "Cap and trade has certainly been demonized. I think that's unfortunate. ... So we'll just call it something different." --Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD) More: http://patriotpost.us/edition/2010/07/21/chronicle/print/
