‘The laziest cat fight ever’
I found this over at the good people from Horses Ass : http://horsesass.org/.
This needs to be the Democratic message.
The press has decided to use the word ‘Mendacity.’
A nice enough word meaning :
[ men dáss?tee ]
1.telling of lies: deliberate untruthfulness
2.lie: a lie or falsehood
But why not just use the words ‘lie’, liar’, ‘lying’?
Why don’t democrats and the press tell the truth and admit AND expose Mitt Romney Lies?
‘Context: in the right corner we have Grandpa McCain yelling at Romney to get off his campaign finance yard. On the other, we have Romney–hanging in the dressing-room–cowardly hiding, speechless, after after McCain said–and I quote: “corporations are [nizott] people too.” Not, people…not’!!

Mitt Romney – “I’m not concerned about the very poor — we have a safety net there,” he said. “If it needs repair, I’ll fix it”.

Is THIS how you and Republicans want to ‘fix’ it Mr. Romney?
‘Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s (D-NY) fight to preserve funding for food stamps in the farm bill currently being hammered out in the Senate drew an attack from Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) Wednesday afternoon’:
“Under this reasoning, we ought to increase the food stamp program 10 times,” Sessions said with incredulity. “Why not? We’re going to get more money back. Somehow it’s going to create more stimulus, and it’s going to bring in more money for the treasury and make the economy grow. Why don’t we just pay for your clothes, pay for your shoes, pay for your housing?”
‘Sessions continued—and bear in mind he’s talking about feeding the poor here’—
“Is that a moral vision for the United States of America, just to see how many people we can place in a situation where they’re dependent on the federal government for their food?”
‘As if food stamps are preventing people from getting food via unicorn delivery. No, actually, as if people like to be poor because that way they get an average of less than $4.50 a day in nutritional support from the government. And who doesn’t enjoy trying to feed their kids on that kind of money’?
‘Speaking to Al Sharpton on Thursday evening, Gillibrand basically took the “Hang on, Jeff Sessions wants to talk about morals?” approach, saying’:
“In Matthew 25, the first question Christ asks on Judgement Day is, ‘Did you feed the poor?'” Gillibrand said, referring to the first book of the New Testament. “It’s unacceptable that we have Republican advocates who are saying it’s immoral to support food stamps.”
‘That may be biblical morality, but it’s not the morality of today’s congressional Republicans’.

‘A few days ago the Congressional Budget Office released a short analysis explaining why the $5.6 trillion surplus they projected for the decade following 2001 instead turned into a $6.1 trillion deficit. Bruce Bartlett summarizes’:
‘Putting all the numbers in the C.B.O. report together, we see that continuation of tax and budget policies and economic conditions in place at the end of the Clinton administration would have led to a cumulative budget surplus of $5.6 trillion through 2011 – enough to pay off the $5.6 trillion national debt at the end of 2000’.
‘Tax cuts and slower-than-expected growth reduced revenues by $6.1 trillion and spending was $5.6 trillion higher, a turnaround of $11.7 trillion. Of this total, the C.B.O. attributes 72 percent to legislated tax cuts and spending increases, 27 percent to economic and technical factors. Of the latter, 56 percent occurred from 2009 to 2011’.
‘Even if we absolve George W. Bush of responsibility for those “economic and technical factors” – mainly the Great Recession – his policies are still responsible for a turnaround of about $8.4 trillion in the deficit projections’.
‘In other words, if we had merely hung onto the policies of the Clinton administration, paid for things like Medicare Part D, and avoided the disastrous war in Iraq, we would have entered the Great Recession with one of the lowest debt levels in the advanced world’.
‘But none of that happened thanks to Republican economic policies. This year, they swear they’ve learned their lesson and will never do this again. Do you believe them’?
