John Stewart highlights an exchange between Obama and Eric Cantor, with Obama pointing out that “we could probably have a system where food could cost less, if we fired the meat inspectors” (paraphrase, not a quote).
Stewart also takes a shot at cable news shows for being obsessed with finding a winner.
Health Care Summit coverage starts 2 and a half minutes into this clip.
Recently it came out that the president’s chief of staff called some progressive democrats “fucking retarded”.
Sarah Palin took offense to that, calling for Rahm’s resignation on facebook.
She’s certainly trying to learn the right-wing media art of stirring up her idiot followers.
Palin remember, quit her governor’s job to go make money with Fox and tea party speeches.
Yes, believe it or not, someone pays her to speak, lol.
Her outrage over the word ‘retard’ is strange, considering she apparently called her own son her “retard baby”, and naturally her outrage is selective.
Here’s Saturday Night Live’s take on Rahm’s apology for using the term “retard”.
” …deficit fear-mongering has become a key part of Republican political strategy, doing double duty: it damages President Obamaâ€™s image even as it cripples his policy agenda. And if the hypocrisy is breathtaking â€” politicians who voted for budget-busting tax cuts posing as apostles of fiscal rectitude, politicians demonizing attempts to rein in Medicare costs one day (death panels!), then denouncing excessive government spending the next â€” well, what else is new?”
How stupid are conservatives? They think the deficit has grown under Obama. Can you believe that? 1.2 trillion before Obama to half that amount this year means the deficit is growing to mentally ill conservatives. Conservatives have exclusive ownership of the idiot gene.
