When the Democrats controlled the House and Senate they were too chicken to do anything.
Now that the Republicans control the House, they’re going off the deep end.
GOP Congressman Paul Ryan, the boy genius who came up with a budget that includes the “Kill Medicare as we know it” plan, can’t fess up to the fact that the Democrat who won the House seat in upstate New York’s “Conservativeland” was because of his dimwit idea.
Now Ryan is accusing Democrats of trying to scare America, using the new catch-word [Fox News talking point alert!!!] “Mediscare.”
Mama Grizzly certainly will, once she starts to parrot it. Which is soon if not already.
Republicans blaming Democrats for trying to scare the bejesus out of old people. They can’t do that, it’s the Republicans calling card.
Like Otter said to Boon in “Animal House”: “They can’t do that to our pledges. Only we can do that to our pledges.”
Democrats using Medicare to scare voters. It’s not like the scare tactic was used two years ago by Republicans to fear-monger about President Obama’s health care plan.
Lest we forget the now infamous “Obamacare wants to pull the plug on granny.”
Turn about is fair play. And there’s hardly any fair play in politics.
On Wednesday, 40 Senate Republicans voted for the Paul Ryan “Kill Medicare as We Know It Plan.”
Five Republicans voted against it. One of them was Rand Paul, the Tea Party’s poster child. Go figure. This guy is actually capable of good judgment.
Not to worry, GOP, 40 is the new 30. That could only be good if it refers to making someone feel good about getting older.
But in this case, 40 is the new 30 means the GOP could lose 10 Senate seats in 2012.
OK, that’s a long way off. First thing you guys have to do is get that scare thingy back in your column.
Whereas the Dems own the issue of Medicare, fear-mongering is pure Republican —- from Nixon to W.
Heck, if you guys lose that to the Dems, you may as well nominate Palin the Parrot. There’s always that “Keep America Stupid” ace in the hole. It’s good for a truckload of percentage points.
Speaking of ol’ “blood libel,” coming soon to a theater near you, Sarah Palin the Movie.
First it was Palin the book.
Then Palin the TV show.
Now it’s a flick called “Undefeated.” Obviously in the fantasy genre —- hello! 2008 presidential race losing ticket.
The only thing you need to know about this movie?
It’s four-hours long, but suddenly quits half-way through.
