Cathy McMorris Rodgers is being horrible again.

“This is a Democrat party that has no interest in working with Republicans — one that’s openly hostile to American values and the Constitution,” said McMorris Rodgers, a member of the House Republican Leadership.

House Speaker John Boehner and Rep. Cathy McMorris-Rodgers, R-Washington. They have resisted strong, Senate-passed Violence Against Women Act bill, but appear resigned to letting it pass.R-Wash., Republican leaders in the House

McMorris Rodgers did not identify which “American values” to which her Democratic colleagues, including eight in the Washington delegation, are hostile.

“Just look at President Obama’s actions on Obamacare and immigration — he has been using unprecedented executive power to rule by decree: The Left will stop at nothing to achieve their goals,” added McMorris Rodgers.

Man, the imaginary Obama is really a horrible person. Why first he gets a moderate health care plan through Congress and then he doesn’t support repealing it! Then he supports immigration reform and takes some minor actions on the fringes that are well within his power as he waits to push reform more broadly and still deports lots of people! Is there nothing this monster isn’t capable of?

Seriously, there have been things that the executive has done that I don’t like: NSA spying is too far, and as I say, I wish there were a lot fewer deportations. Mostly though, it’s the routine executive overreach that we see in every administration. But she can’t very well write a fundraising letter, “Obama has a rather broad interpretation of his war powers, but it’s less than Bush, who I supported. Also, most other presidents since Adams almost got us into an undeclared war with the French have had a pretty broad idea of their war powers. Finally, the drone program that I supported under Bush is following it’s natural course, but we should probably reign it in. A contribution of $25, $50, or $100 will make sure we can continue to have nonsense hearings on whatever the right wing echo chamber is blathering on about now.”

Smart lady.

What’s the big deal? It’s a fundraising letter. These things are designed to scare the rubes into parting with whatever money they have left after walking past the lottery-ticket dispenser in their local supermarket. McMorris-Rodgers didn’t even write it, she just got a template from some GOP campaign committee or other. I get similar-toned stuff from the Democrats. Everybody does it.

3. Puddybud - Back to the Original! spews:

Looks like McMorris is right… Senate DUMMOCRETINS are backing away from Scary Reid on the new budget deal.

And all you HA DUMMOCRETINS eat up the shit proffered by Joel Connelly and other left wong morons! Y’all screamed over how Republicans discussed their budget differences while it passed and meanwhile not a peep on Senate DUMMOCRETIN confusion!

DEMS SLIPPING AWAY FROM REID ON BUDGET DEAL – Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin told CBS’ “Face the Nation” that his team will need at least eight Republicans to pass a two-year budget deal approved last week by the Republican controlled House. That’s his way of saying that three members of the Democratic conference have already told him that they will not vote for the deal.

What? Daily Kooks, The Putrid Maniacs and Media Morons don’t have the story? Do you leftist pinheads read anything that it’s not leaning out of left field bleachers?

4. Skooter spews:

I haven’t been here in a while, so it’s astonishing to see the decline of Puddy. I know, Puddylevel was very low to begin with.

6. don spews:

@2

What? Daily Kooks, The Putrid Maniacs and Media Morons don’t have the story?

Daily Kos posted the story at 8 am, an hour before you posted that screed above. But Durbin’s comment is already moot as the Senate just invoked cloture by a vote of 67-33. That means instead of the 8 Republicans Durbin said he needed, he got 12. Fox News got their “prediction” wrong as all 55 Democratic caucus votes were in favor of cloture.

Hey hey hey, Now that Martin Bashir is gone… time to place the spotlight on Dead in the Head Schultz

Schultz tacitly admitted that he doesn’t pay his workers health insurance by using a third-person construction to describe their situation, even though he regularly attacks companies that don’t offer their workers health insurance.

“I have a North Dakota corporation that’s based in Fargo. It’s called Ed Schultz Broadcasting,” Schultz told his audience during the Ed Show on May 19, 2013. “It’s been in business since 2004 when I started my national radio show. And I have employees who have insurance. I have some that don’t.”

Amazing how much of a scumbag this misogynist klown is and held in high esteem by HA DUMMOCRETINS!

Person who pretends to be Puddy, I don’t bother doing more than skimming your posts because I find your posts to be gibberish and stupid. They just make you seem ignorant. Maybe you are ok with that, but you are giving your fellow black republicans a bad reputation by association.

However, if you change and exhibit a pattern of posting in clear English, drop the insults and include valid links, then I will read your post in depth.

Otherwise you are just noise and I tend to ignore you.

Lost in Piddles bowel movements is the usual not seeing of the forest.

So Fox news had the biggest decline in viewership 18-55 of all the news networks. Fox News audience is now well over 80% 55+.

Piddles thinks that’s GREAT. Trees. (HarX45)

25. No Time for Fascists spews:

Having an fascinating discussion about class in another space. The idea that some people are simply better than other people, they are a better class. In Europe this was tied to genetics, nobles, by virtue of birth, were simply better people than the serfs. Here in the states, class is linked to wealth and genetics. We have both the evil concept that whites are a better class of people because of the color of their skin, than other people, and the rich are a better class of people than the poor.
Too often the thinking is that because the lower classes are inferior to their betters, it is acceptable to inflict upon them low wages, sick environments, little or no health care and terrible educations.
Best I can tell, American put up with that crap thinking because they cling the myth that some day they will be come rich through hard work and luck and be able to lord over the little people too.

26. Michael spews:

Puddy, once again,hijacks an entire thread and instead of working to get cool people elected or advance a liberal/left/progressive anything HA posters waste their time talking about Puddy.

I’m calling this one: Puddy FTW.

27. No Time for Fascists spews:

I thought this was a valid comment on the ratings results

“IMHO the problem is that there is very little good news for the masses. We’re tired of tuning in to hear how corporations got their way again, the will of the people was ignored to please lobbyists, and no one in DC represents the average American. Ratings were up in 2008 when many Americans believed there was hope for change. When they found out it was business as usual, they quit watching”

The fox viewers need their daily fear to maintain their bubble so they keep watching.

Now why would Puddy want to work to get more DUMMOCRETINS in power Michael?

The libtard progressive way is why we have fewer jobs in our economy today and why NYC DUMMOCRETINS are feeling the pain of Obummercare!

32. Puddybud - Back to the Original! spews:

Even libtard news channels are starting to tell it like it is!

“More back tracking now from the Obama administration admitting that some Americans will pay more for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act,” said the Florida news anchor. “During a visit to Miami, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stopped at a local library to talk to local residents about enrolling on the health insurance website. She also acknowledged that some people will pay higher premiums under Obamacare.”

Oh no… Nancy Pelosi claimed otherwise Kathy. Nancy Pelosi is the smartest woman in Da House. Just ask her; so one of you is lying…

33. Roger Rabbit spews:

@32 Does this mean you’re in favor of private insurance company death panels, arbitrary insurance policy cancellations, soaring insurance premiums, hospitals charging patients $50 for a 5-cent aspirin, middle class families facing medical bankruptcy, children dying because their parents can’t afford medical care, and so on?

Sure sounds like it.

34. Roger Rabbit spews:

Puddy, you’re an asshole and you’re full of shit.

35. Puddybud - Back to the Original! spews:

Another law of unintended consequences HA DUMMOCRETINS… and it’s right here in your back yard. So FartyArt and other old farts… lookie here….

As thousands of state residents enroll in Washington’s expanded Medicaid program, many will be surprised at fine print: After you’re dead, your estate can be billed for ordinary health-care expenses. State officials are scrambling to change the rule.

So you did have to pass the law to find out what was in it. Pelosi was right and DUMMOCRETINS pay the price!

he way Prins saw it, that meant health insurance via Medicaid is hardly “free” for Washington residents 55 or older. It’s a loan, one whose payback requirements aren’t well advertised. And it penalizes people who, despite having a low income, have managed to keep a home or some savings they hope to pass to heirs, Prins said.

DAYUM the more you read one notices how stooooooooooopid the “trained people” are about this provision!

You voted for this mess DUMMOCRETINS… no you have to live with it since Obummer won’t entertain any other notions on this putrid law!

Take you own advice and look in da mirror dumb wabbit!

37. czechsaaz spews:

Piddles is cute when he thinks he has a point. He likes to say checkmate. I don’t think he’s ever played chess.

Did you look at your own link to demographics. Obviously not.

I’ll round to make it easy for you to understand.

On an avearge day, Fox has 1.2 million viewers. Of those, 230,000 are age 18-54 (your link includes the kind of irrelevent 35-64 demo.)

We could quibble that the 2+ number includes all those 25 and younger but if you think the number of YA, teens, tweens and toddlers watching cable news is more than a teeny slice of the audience

So of the 1.2 million average daily users 230,000 are under age 55. 230/1200 = n/100, n=19% (rounded)

To sum up, 81% of Fox’s audience, even by the demographics you supplied to rebut, is over 55.

Piddles wandered up to a game of Chutes and Ladders, thought it was a noble ancient game, Hit the big slide and had to start over and then yelled, “Checkmate!”

I can recommend a good therapist and a remedial math teacher for your new meds and work with numbers. Anything else you want to bleat?

38. herzog spews:

39. czechsaaz spews:

@37

I see I typed 18-54 when I know, on a professional level, that it should be 25-54. There’s a reason why cable news doesn’t break out the under 25 demo. Too small. Too Depressing. Keeps the execs from thinking too hard that their business model isn’t more than a decade or two behind newspapers for extinction.

checkmate… Whatever you rant about… Fox News Kicks all other ASS. Keep looking for that minutia to help your favrit Cable News channel PMSNBC. And their 25-54 demographic is STILL HIGHER than PMSNBC! And from the last few weeks they are kicking all others combined.

Quibble all you want checkmate! We all know from Jimmy Kimmel and Jay Leno man on the street videos… DUMOCRETINS are the lowest of the low information voters. That’s why those 18-30 year olds are shocked by Obummercare. They don’t pay attention. Now they have to live with their low information vote!

“It calls for reducing annual cost-of-living adjustments (COLAs) in retiree pay by 1 percent, but only for those who retire after 20 years of active service, are not disabled and generally are still in their 40s.”

http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/reform-of-military-benefits-is-a-hard-battle/2013/12/16/99c722d2-6429-11e3-aa81-e1dab1360323_story.html?tid=hpModule_308f7142-9199-11e2-bdea-e32ad90da239

@34 That doesn’t even begin to cover it. He’s more full of shit than a Sanikan at a chili cookoff.

48. Puddybud - Back to the Original! spews:

Golly “K” you should read the fine print

An original copy of a summary of the budget agreement, obtained by the Free Beacon, explicitly stated that disabled veterans would be exempt.

“This provision modifies the annual cost-of-living adjustment for working-age military retirees by making the adjustments equal to inflation minus 1 percent,” reads the summary, which was sent on Dec. 10. “This change would be gradually phased in, with no change for the current year, a 0.25 percent decrease in December 2014, and a 0.5 percent decrease in December 2015.

“This would not affect servicemembers who retired because of disability or injury.”

The summary now posted on the House Budget Committee website removed the sentence relating to disabled retirees.

So let’s see if the WaPo revises it’s position!

Proving once again “K” farts are very smelly and what “K” puts forth are lies and ignorant rants!

50. K spews:

@48 Puddles, from your own link:

“Specifically to your question,” Allison said, “the COLA provision does not include additional exemptions, but to clarify: The Bipartisan Budget Act does not affect any benefits provided to veterans in compensation for disabilities suffered as a result of their service.”

51. K spews:

But go on and spin your bs, proving once again why you should be ignored

52. Puddybud - Back to the Original! spews:

Man “K” you have no clue… It’s not the benefits for the disability you moron, it’s their retirement benefits because they are forced to retire early due to wounded warrior injuries… So you missed this on purpose? Must be…

Wounded servicemembers are entitled to Veterans Administration Disability Benefits, which remain unchanged by the budget deal. However, the change to Chapter 61 retirement could account for about 55 percent of a wounded service member’s disability pay, according to a Senate aide.

For example, a 28-year-old staff sergeant (an E-6 rank) who is forced to retire after 10 years would see approximately $50,000 in lost compensation over the next 40 years.

Man being a DUMMOCRETIN is an attention deficit disorder… Puddy has been discussing their retirement all this time “K”. You are naturally stoooooooooopid!

It really SUX to be “K”. Wait for the “K” Spin… Any second now!

53. K spews:

If the disability payments are insufficient, fix that. Did we find the only retirement provision anywhere which Republicans believe are untouchable?

The early retirement for federal workers allowing “double dip” is a favorite target, should that be OK here?

And your hero Rep. Ryan signed off on this.

54. Puddybud - Back to the Original! spews:

Wow… look at “K”… changed his “tune”. Did you FINALLY READ the article “K”?

Liberalism is a mental disorder of the primary kind! “K” Should be ignored FOREVER!

55. K spews:

No tune change and certainly the same old song from you. All this proves is that the Republicans are not interested in solutions, they are interested in excuses for obstruction, or in your case excuses for argument. If this was truly their issue, why not raise it when it could have been addressed, not after significant numbers of House Republicans voted for it and got the hell out of town, preventing any amendment?

56. Puddybud - Back to the Original! spews:

Blah blah blah… more pablum puke material from “K”. Maybe Paul Ryan thought that’s the only thing he could do to stop the additional largess spending Nancy Pelosi wanted. Didn’t you get the DNCC embrace the suck budget memo? It was on The Putrid Morons!
