Chronicle of America’s Death Foretold

“President Obama on Tuesday said he cannot guarantee that retirees will receive their Social Security checks August 3 if Democrats and Republicans in Washington do not reach an agreement on reducing the deficit in the coming weeks.” [CBS]


Sometimes voting against your interests has an unintended amusement factor especially when it backfires on those idiots who assumed that gubbiment had NOTHING to do with Social Security or Medicare.

Who do you think will get the frantic hate-filled calls? Who is going to cave?Democratic congressmen and women, not the fucking bastard Republicans that put the country in this fix.

He’s playing poker with them now.

A twisted tail… A thousand eyes… trapped forever! Epa… epa… epa!

Lots o’ buzz this afternoon about McConnell sorta backing down, but I’ll wait for the fallout. Which includes, so far, Erick Erickson calling him Pontius Pilate.

@nojo: One of FDR’s great successes was not getting Congress to do what he wanted with the economy, but rather getting Congress to allow him to do what he wanted.

@nojo: Ya think McConnell got some calls from Wall Street and the corporate fat cats who depend on Wall Street financing?

@Dodgerblue: That’s why this debt ceiling farce is just ridiculous. If the sadistic psychopaths that control our eCONomy and political system thought for one second that Orange Julius and Cantwhore were threats to their system of payments and dollar-denominated assets–of which they own plenty–they’d have those two assassinated instantly and replaced with puppets that will approve. It’s amazing even at this point that no one is publicly stating the obvious.
