I didn’t see these fools up in arms when a REPUBLICAN President and a REPUBLICAN Congress were spending like mad and dragging us into expensive wars, did you?!

Sink or Swim for the Big Three?

The Big Three Auto CEOs are back in DC.  This time they drove hybrid cars, offered salary cuts, and had some type of plan.  Now, I’m in now way saying what they’ve got is a good plan, but for the moment they appear more desperate than arrogant.

According to a poll by CNN, 61% of Americans oppose a bailout.  I hear ya.  I feel ya.  And on many levels I agree with ya but….lets be real here for a minute.  How many jobs will be lost by those employed by the Big Three?  And how many jobs lost by companies that will go under if the Big Three go under?

I also wonder if this is a more emotion decision for many of us rather than an educated decision.  We keep watching Big Business CEOs rake in big bucks, crap all over workers, and then hold out their hand for our tax money.  I’m not just talking the Automobile Industry…how many investment/banking institutions have come to the government hat in hand?

I’m leaning towards a bailout here I’ll admit, but not without some serious oversight and concessions!

Well How Very Big of them

Apparently Congress will be back at work early in the New Year.  Typically they don’t start voting on anything till mid to late January.  However this year they will be working on a huge economic stimulus package the new President wants. 

Good.

Broke Ass Big Three…

Fly private jets to ask Congress for a handout.

Apparently one spokesperson from the Big Three stressed security as the reason.  Did I miss something?  Do CEOs really need to fly private jets?  They also stressed other CEOs fly private jets.  I guess my question is, do other failing companies needing a cash infusion from the government fly private? 

GM spokesman whines that “Making a big to-do about this when issues vital to the jobs of millions of Americans are being discussed in Washington is diverting attention away from a critical debate that will determine the future health of the auto industry and the American economy.”  What I think he is missing is his own point….that jobs should be the focus and by continuing down the path of wasteful loses jobs. 

I say sell your jets and keep a worker or two.  I’m not opposed at this point to aiding GM, Chrysler, and Ford.  What I am opposed to is funding companies that can’t seem to accept changes will need to be made.

Broun…Worst Person…

Here’s Keith Olberman having a good time with Paul Broun back in March.



Who is Dumber?? Alaskan Republican Voters or the Citizens in Minnesota’s 6th Congressional District

I know I’ve already gone over the fact that some IDIOTS in the state of Alaska voted for a convicted Ted Stevens…but I wanted to share with everyone that they were not alone!  Michelle Bachmann wins reelection in Minnesota in the 6th Congressional District.

Remember this bimbo claimed Obama and liberals were Anti-American.  She also called for the press to begin an investigation of her fellow Congress Members to root out the other Anti-Americans.  Stupid.  Stupid.  Stupid.

Obama: Not IF He Wins…but how BIG of a WIN!!

I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before, but one of my favorite websites is Charlie Cook’s.  That is where I go for goord analysis.  Not biased self serving analysis, but well thought out coverage.  I only wish he’d update and post more.  I’m greedy what can I say.  I, however, am not going to jail for my greed like the good Senator Stevens may be.  Okay, that was a cheap shot, but still fun and that’s what matters most…my enjoyment.  And while I enjoy the Cook Political Report for its unbiased content, I’ve never claimed to be unbiased myself and it’s my blog so get off my ass already!

Now Charlie Cook has not said in anyway the election is over.  He has merely pointed out it would take something huge for McCain to win.  He has also predicted 7 Senate seats for the Dems and 20 House seats. 

Both would be great, but hey I’m greedy, I want 9 Senate seats and 30 House seats.  Just to show I can be not greedy, I’ll take 9 Senate seats and 20 House seats.  Then my people can tell Joe I’m a Real Asshole Lieberman to take a flying leap!
