Mitch McConnell is making a fool of himself once again. While most of America waits to find out exactly what happened and who was responsible for the bombings in Boston McConnell has set out to do one thing. Score political points and somehow validate the failed reactions to previous terror attacks that he rubber-stamped. So now instead of waiting with the rest of us and trying to find out the truth behind the bombings in Boston he is doing what he does best. Hypocritically blaming someone else. He seizes upon one terror attack and completely ignores many others.
One thing we can all be certain of. The Mad Doctor with the twisty curls who became the Mad Senator now very much wants to be the Mad President. However, one thing that stands in his way is one simple fact. The American voter sees things a little different and is a little less forgiving than the voters of Kentucky for radical views. So to actually be President Rand Paul is going to have to embark on a "cleaning up" tour of radical statements he made that were forgiven in his Kentucky Senate campaign. Today, that "cleaning up" tour began in Washington D.C. at Howard University.
While Mitch McConnell whines to the FBI today about the tapes that show the inner workings of his campaign the campaign to defeat him is still in high gear. The Senate Majority pack is up with a website showing just why Mitch is so wrong for Kentucky.
One thing we have always been sure of around here. Mitch McConnell is a Washington politician that will do anything to keep hold of his power he uses to destroy America and the interests of American workers. One need only look at his record of bailing out the bankers, but refusing to allow any funds to be used to create jobs in our country. Indeed, after obstructing progress for America as a whole and enriching himself in the process McConnell has seen his favorability plummet. Now, it has come to light just how low this piece of garbage would seek to continue shipping jobs overseas and redistributing wealth upwards.
One thing Kentucky can definitely lay claim to. Our two Senators are not only out of touch with the worries of everyday Americans, but they are so out of touch with reality it is frankly embarrassing. Not only that, it seems that these two Corporate radicals are constantly twisting words around to make legislation they oppose sound like it is something it is not because the main thing that gets people like them elected is sheer ignorance and idiocy.
Rand Paul has been making a lot of headlines lately. It appears as if the Mad Doctor with the Twisty Curls has his sights set on one thing. Being President, something his father never even got close to. In that regards it seems as if Rand Paul thinks his brand of anti-government at all costs libertarianism will help Republicans do something they have only done once in twenty years. Win the popular vote in a Presidential election. However, as with his filibuster on drone attacks on American soil one fact continues to ring true. Even when Rand Paul says or does something that seems on the surface to be the right thing, he must lace it with a poisonous dose of hypocrisy because of the underlying dark truth of his true vision for America.
Disclaimer: Here at Hillbilly Report we do not condone the use of the Hillbilly Heroin. It makes you into Rush Limbaugh.
As expected it has already begun. When real Americans try to use common sense there is one thing you can depend on. Idiotic people will automatically knee-jerk against them because well, they are idiots. I guess at least one idiot in America at least has somewhat of an excuse. His brain has been fried by the Hillbilly Heroin.
It is a most magnificent thing to watch. The implosion of the modern Republican Party. This election cycle seems now to be proving to America that while you can fool some of the people all the time, you cannot fool everyone. Now America seems to be wising up to the Republican Party and their nominee. And while some may say Romney is a victim of his own party I say he is a symptom of it. Now, his candidacy seems doomed by the very things that have long elected Republicans. Greed, hypocrisy and ignorance.
You can always tell when the Senator for Communist China, Mitch McConnell's mouth is moving. Something hypocritical, selfish or just plain idiotic will spew forth. Among his fellow elitists, racists, hypocrites and idiots at CPAC Mitch McConnell today was spewing forth garbage once again. However, what one wonders is how McConnell can blame anyone else for anything. You see, now he is whining about being treated like he himself has treated others. One question for McConnell, how can you blame anyone for anything when you have been in power in the Senate for so long, a time when all these evils have occured.
The Republican Party really has some nerve. They are constantly whining about having to sacrifice for the problems that they themselves created. They are a party of hypocrites suffering from mass selective amnesia. Their choice of a "responder" to President Obama's State of the Union speech should tell America all they need to know about the sorry state of the modern Republican Party.
One continuing theme in this country right now. Republicans are determined to keep the 1% from paying their fair share and will wage warfare on the working-class to insure that they do not. They are the party of "tax breaks" as long as those breaks go to the very few. Their new counterproposal, the brainchild of the Senator for Communist China Mitch McConnell shows just how far they will go.
In another demonstration of the rank hypocrisy of Republicans Darrell Issa, Chairman of the House Oversight Committee is sparking a subpoena war against the National Labor Relations Board. At stake is documentation relating to the case against Boeing for opening a new plant in South Carolina to avoid having to negotiate with unionized workers. It appears as if Issa is not satisfied with the 5800 pages already provided and is demanding documents which will impede future litigation by the NLRB as well as threatening Constitutional seperation of powers. The worst part is that although Issa wants to profit from his office, he does not want hard working Americans to achieve the middle-class honestly.
So I took a bit of a break this past month, and I figured by the time I came back y'all would have things sorted out: people would be surely by flying around with jet packs by now, God would have sent fires and floods to smite the unrighteous, and, if I really got lucky, Barack Obama would have "grown a pair".
And now that I'm back, debt negotiations are about to commence between that same Barack Obama and the Republican Congressional Leadership, things like Social Security and Medicare cuts are apparently on the table in order to protect tax cuts for the rich, and certain quarters of the Republican Party aren't even trying anymore to hide their racism.
All of which suggests that I shouldn't be looking for a jet pack anytime soon.
But there is some good news: God is apparently working hard, and states like Oklahoma and Arizona and Florida and Georgia and Texas have been alternately aflame or aflood, apparently as a result of their unrepentant behavior...and on the economic front, New York City's Stonewall Inn is going to make a ton of money this summer hosting weddings.
That gives us a lot to talk about...so let's get right to it.
As the debt limit showdown threatens to destroy our country's credit rating one theme is remaining constant. The hypocrisy of Republicans in dealing with the debt they created and blamed on someone else. Now as the logjam continues we are confronted with more of that hypocrisy. Yes, Republicans in Congress, including the Speaker of the House of Hypocrites the Prince of Orange John Boehner, are calling for President Obama to "get serious" about reigning in debt and spending. However, a closer look shows just how serious these Republicans really are.
As if we needed another example of rank Republican hypocrisy. Remember when the Republicans sent tea-party zealots into townhall meetings on the healthcare law to make idiots of themselves by spewing lies and propoganda? Well, after that shameful display now Republicans are crying foul. Why?? Because on Easter break they got a taste of their own medicine. The only difference was instead of lies and talking points Republicans were forced to defend the truth of their attempt to destroy Medicaire.
Ah the hypocrisy of Republicans. Sometimes it is just astounding. From blaming Democrats for the economy they crashed, to giving Bush credit for the death of bin Laden, to inventing "death panels" for their brain dead masses to absorb the modern Republican Party instead of being ripe with any successful ideas has instead become a party of spin and hypocrisy. That is because their ideas for our country are always wrong and at every turn are proven that way. Now Paul Ryan, the author of their draconian vision of the world is showing that rank hypocrisy that has defined the failed Republican Party once more.
Just about 40 seconds after (Yes, He's Actually The) President Barack Obama brought forth his Certificate of Live Birth unto the world Donald Trump was accusing Obama of somehow sneaking his way into some University or another.
If Trump's to be believed, Obama was a terrible student at a College, and then he somehow snuck his way into a University; after that he basically grifted his way into becoming the President of the Harvard Law Review.
Trump would tell you that he's a hustler, that Obama is, and we've got to do whatever it takes to figure out what kind of semi-illegal shenanigans Obama's University experience was all about.
But here's the thing: Donald Trump has his own history of semi-illegal University shenanigans-and it appears that some of his semi-illegal shenanigans continue to this very day.
There are lots of big tough words coming out of our friends in the Tea Party these days, especially when it comes to the permissible functions of the Federal Government.
"If it's not specifically enumerated in the Constitution," they say, "It must be a function of the States-and the 10th Amendment says so!"
None are tougher in their language than those living in the States located below the old Mason-Dixon line-and by an amazing coincidence, just this weekend pretty much all of those States got a bit of a "gut check" in the form of dozens of tornados that slammed into the area.
So we're going to put the Tea Party philosophy to the test today, and see just what exactly the Federal Government should-and should not-be doing to fulfill the Tea Party vision and to help those folks who were hit by this particular natural disaster.
On Libya the Republican hypocrites are stepping out of the woodwork once again. After years of rubber-stamping a failed leader as he bumbled two failed wars and dropped the ball on bringing Osama bin Laden to justice they just cannot stand the fact that another leader may have better ideas in another country where the people have already risen against a despot. I guess it must disturb them that the new President is not willing to risk thousands of American lives and treasure for years in a bottomless pit to bring change. Indeed this leader is doing something Republicans would never dream of. Giving rebels trying to shake a despot what they asked for and not forcing American troops upon them.
Yesterday, a "bi-partisan" group of Senators sent President Obama a letter asking him to lead the charge in dealing with America's debt and deficit. However, one thing seems lost on these hypocrites from both parties and they will consider only one thing to deal with our debt. Despite all their bluster these hypocrites in the Senate have already given the only folks who can afford to bring the national debt down a free pass by extending the Bush Tax Cuts for the very rich wasting almost $800 billion. Now they are asking the President to cut the deficit but only want the working class to pay for it.
