Sick… Top WaPo Columnist Says Republicans Are ‘Suicide Bombers’ for Wanting to Cut Spending

The enemy of the left is the Republican Party.
The liberal media, Barack Obama and the Democrats prove this every day.

They even liken Republicans to “suicide bombers.”

Republicans want to cut runaway spending and debt. This infuriates liberals to the point that they are comparing the GOP to Islamic killers.
Greg Sargent at The Washington Post reported:

Big news. Eric Cantor has just made it official: The GOP leadership is prepared to agree to a three month debt ceiling hike. This is a major de-escalation of the crazy and effectively means Republicans have all but taken the threat of default off the table completely.

First, the key bit from Cantor’s statement:

We must pay our bills and responsibly budget for our future. Next week, we will authorize a three month temporary debt limit increase to give the Senate and House time to pass a budget. Furthermore, if the Senate or House fails to pass a budget in that time, Members of Congress will not be paid by the American people for failing to do their job. No budget, no pay.

Here’s why this matters: This increases the debt ceiling to authorize borrowing to pay the country’s bills well into April. That punts the debt limit deadline until after the deadline for funding for the government to run out, which is on March 27th. In other words, Republicans will now use the threat of a government shutdown along with the coming expiration of the sequester to extract the spending cuts it wants. Presuming this all gets resolved by then, or soon after, it means the threat of default is no longer a factor. This will all but certainly get resolved in advance of this three month deadline, and a long term debt limit hike will get attached to that agreement.

Unfortunately, we still have a Republican party that believes you can play nice with these thugs. And America suffers because of it. And our debt continues to pile up.

    More good stuff from the non-biased media:

    How did the rest of the media miss this? According to the new issue of Newsweek online, President Obama, who this weekend begins his second term–the third president in a row to do so–is “The Second Coming.”

    With flattering photographs, the magazine edited by Obama fan Tina Brown holds out hope that in his second Inaugural Address, Obama can inspire and show that he can also lead.

    The conservative media watch dog, Media Research Center, first noticed the God-like cover.

    “Conservatives have long joked that the national press corps see Barack Obama as the second coming of Jesus Christ. Today, Newsweek – at least what’s left of it, an online product for tablets and e-readers – made it official,” said Center Vice President Brent Baker

    “Next to a side shot of Obama’s head, the ‘Inauguration 2013’ cover story pronounces: ‘The Second Coming.'”

    Baker notes that the author, long-time Newsweek veteran Evan Thomas, gave Obama God-like qualities during his first year in office, saying on MSNBC, “In a way, Obama’s standing above the country, above — above the world. He’s sort of God. He’s going to bring all different sides together.”

    Well, the Republicans will just have to “reach out to our friends across the aisle” to clear up this misunderstanding and admit they are WRONG, EVIL, and REALLY ARE SUICIDE BOMBERS. (Quote is from McCain – that disgusting RINO).

    Yet MORE evidence that the Democrat party is the EVIL party and the Republican party is the STUPID party.

    Every “deficit dollar” is also another “tax dollar”, either currently (the current year), or in the future (the following year and beyond with interest too), or lastly through modern day seigniorage (the Fed’s inflation tax).
    So the real question being asked yet again is actually, why do the Republicans want to cut taxes.
    We’re “deficit spending” more than 20% higher than prior to the recession, that means we’re also taxing more than before the recession. That’s why the economy is so weak. It’s great if you’ve participated in the government largesse lotto, not so much for the other 47%… sorry WaPo, but the real suicide is continuing on the current path. Guaranteed.

    This begs the question, WHY did they not add this to that Sandy relief bill?

    Clearly they are moving with ‘last ditch’ mentality now.

    As for spending cuts, the Republicans should simply settle for one. They should force the END of BASELINE budgeting. This would be about an accounting gimmic which no one will understand, or even be able to seriously attack them for demanding!

    This one action will also force Reid into producing a budget for 2013 as the massive hidden increases will no longer fit into a continuing resolution.

    Shocking New Revelation: Reporters Swooned Over Obama!

    Shocking New Revelation: Reporters Swooned Over Obama!
    January 18, 2013
    By Lonely Conservative

    There’s a shocking new revelation in a book by one of BuzzFeed’s writers – reporters swooned over President Obama! Swooning, I tell you!

    Actually, the only thing that’s shocking is that one of them admitted it so openly.

    [Michael] Hastings reveals that a reporter’s life on the trail is monotonous and difficult, save for a few sweet unscripted but always off-the-record moments.

    One of those off-the-record moments was an event where President Obama joined reporters for drinks while the campaign was in Orlando, Fla., an event that Hastings partially details in the book.

    “The behavior of the assembled press corps was telling. Everyone, myself included, swooned. Swooned! Head over heels. One or two might have even lost their minds,” Hastings writes, as each reporter had a chance to speak personally with the president. “We were all, on some level, deeply obsessed with Obama, crushing hard, still a little love there. This was nerd heaven, a politico’s paradise, the subject himself moving among us — shaking our hands, slapping our shoulders!”

    Hastings reveals that the president spent “over an hour” with reporters who later stayed up late buzz over every detail of the evening.

    “Did this inform our reporting, did seeing the man in the flesh, in a somewhat staged and casual setting, provide new, deep, and lasting insights?” asks a reflective Hastings in his book. “Yes, I would say, but again, I’m not at liberty to share.” (Read More)

    Is it any wonder the public is so confused considering the way the media idolizes Obama?

    H/T to Jim Treacher who has more on BuzzFeed’s nasty reporters, and links to a piece at American Glob that’s also a worthwhile read.

    The American media will go down in history as one of the major contributors to the collapse os our society. They have no objectivity or honesty. They have no concern with finding truth(Benghazi, fast/furious, etc) that would improve America. It is almost a badge of honor to be insulted by the MSM–means you’re doing something right.

    Flashback 2011: Greg Sargent howled that Palin’s “crosshairs map” and “rhetoric contributed to a political climate that may have helped lead to the Arizona massacrec”…. “asking her to be more mindful of the potential consequences of incendiary rhetoric.”

    Civility for me… but not for thee.

    We’re “deficit spending” more than 20% higher than prior to the recession,
    OK, it’s probably much more than 20%, but OK.

    that means we’re also taxing more than before the recession.
    You’ve lost me. How does that mean we are taxing more? Especially considering revenue has been about 15% of GDP since 2008, as opposed to 18>5% in 2007.
