    Why Pols Need Press Secretaries

    Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Nowhere) said AIG executives should follow the Japanese example and kill themselves. His press secretary clarified that Sen. Grassley didn’t say the executives should kill themselves. To wit:

    Sen. Grassley: “I would suggest the first thing that would make me feel a little bit better toward them [is] if they’d follow the Japanese example and come before the American people and take that deep bow and say, I’m sorry, and then either do one of two things: resign or go commit suicide. And in the case of the Japanese, they usually commit suicide before they make any apology.”

    “Grassley spokesman Casey Mills said the senator isn’t calling for AIG executives to kill themselves, but said those who accept tax dollars and spend them on travel and bonuses do so irresponsibly.”

    Thanks, Casey, I’m glad you cleared that up for us! What would your bloodthirsty boss do without you? Personally, I agree with the senator — they should fucking kill themselves. But why stop with the AIG executives? The whole Republican Party, which got us into this mess, should follow their example … hey, just kidding! That ol’ Ann Coulter humor, ya know?

    Barry Ritholtz, held in high esteem by many a Democratic here said blame is 60% Republican cuz Bush was in the White House and 40% Democratic because the Democratic in Congress blocked both Clinton and Bush banking reform attempts. Puddy realizes the Ritholtz information is over 24 hours old and you need to make another worthless point in pixels.

    Hi Puddy–
    Still in Wisconsin…64 and sunny today.
    The lake ice is melting fast.

    I figured out why the idiot stood you up the other day. He heard you were Big and Black…and got scared! It’s obvious when you look back thru the threads.

    These “users” of race are as bad as Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton…the ultimate pimps of poverty and shakedown.
    They have zero Black friends….and cannot stand it when Conservative Whites have Conservative Black friends. It drives them so nuts…they are forced to call you names like Oreo and Uncle Tom…proving YOUR point.
    I love it when you smoke out these USER RACISTS Puddy. It’s gotten to be mere child’s play for you on this HA bastion of White Guy Progressive Racists.

    Keep up the fine work.
    Your comments show 100% truth with humor.
    The humorless KLOWNS are oh so serious and oh so self-righteous.

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    Obama went up a point over yesterday’s rock-bottom level (Obama claimed he was part Irish and wore his Lepruchan costume and picked up some Irish support today!)
    From todays Rasmussen (the number 1 poll in accuracy vs. the #21 poll the KLOWNS repeatedly quote)

    Tuesday, March 17, 2009

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 37% of the nation’s voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-two percent (32%) now Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of +5

    From +32 to +5 in less than 2 months.
    His idiot Press Secretary isn’t happy with this massive drop and obviously wants to see it drop more so he mentions Limbaugh again.

    We have seen clear and compelling evidence that the KLOWNS are all about winning elections…but once in power, quickly disintegrate with self-inflicted wounds (JUST LIKE THE P-I!!!)

    It’s hysterical.
    These KLOWNS are entirely rudderless.
    All they can do rather than lead is blame Bush, Cheney & Rush. The idiot Press Secretary ought to have his head examined bringing up Rush’s name again in a petty way.

    I hope we can work out that lunch with GBS. We trade barbs, but I do enjoy his commentary (even if he is wrong, wrong, wrong most of the time). Same thing with SJ…I gave him a hard time for failing to stand up to the Higher Ed Bureaucracy in a meaningful way…..hoping that he would do more. He KNOWS the huge wasteful spending areas. Not sure SJ has it in him to really rattle the establishment. He is obviously smart enough…but like the cowardly lion, lacks the courage.

    I think Rog the Pelletizer might be suffering from a condition of senility found in many rabbits as a result of choking down his own pellets. It’s called “shitferbrains syndrome”.

    Did you see Democratic Senator Dodd had an amendment in the Stimulus which absolves and exempts bonus payments paid before Feb 2009 for AIG and others? Looks like they new this months ago.

    While the Senate constructed the $787 billion stimulus last month, Dodd unexpectedly added an executive-compensation restriction to the bill. That amendment provides an “exception for contractually obligated bonuses agreed on before Feb. 11, 2009,” which exempts the very AIG bonuses Dodd and others are seeking to tax. The amendment is in the final version and is law. Preznit Obama signed it.

    Also, Sen. Dodd was AIG’s largest single recipient of campaign donations during the 2008 election cycle with $103,100. See opensecrets.org.

    The heat is on Obama about AIG:

    Lawmakers Turn Fire on Obama Administration Over AIG Bonuses
    Though President Obama pledged last month to crack down on executive pay for companies that take “exceptional” amounts of federal bail-out money, the administration now seems to be struggling to do anything about the bonuses AIG says it is contractually obligated to pay.


    Tuesday, March 17, 2009

    Though President Obama pledged last month to crack down on executive pay for companies that take “exceptional” amounts of federal bailout money, the administration now seems to be struggling to take action to retrieve the bonuses AIG says it is contractually obligated to pay.

    This, despite the fact the government, with its $170 billion in assistance, holds about an 80 percent stake in the company, and just pledged another $30 billion.

    “It seems like they are an administration in disarray,” House Minority Whip Eric Cantor, R-Va., said Tuesday.

    Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., suggested Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner does not have a handle on the AIG matter.

    “We need to find out when these bonuses were approved and more than that, when they were contracted for. And who knew this?” said the ranking Republican on the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee. “Did Secretary Geithner know and look the other way?”

    The senator, a harsh critic of the Treasury’s bailout program known by its acronym “TARP,” or Troubled Assets Relief Program, said members who voted for the program bear some blame, but he put much of the fault at Geithner’s feet.

    “There’s either competence or incompetence going on here, and it looks like a lot of incompetence,” Shelby said, adding: “I think this is the tip of the iceberg.”

    “I think Secretary Geithner does not have his hands around the details of this, and if he does, then there’s a lot more questions to be asked,” he said.

    Shelby, interviewed on CBS’ “Early Show,” raised the possibility of resignation, saying: “I don’t know if he should resign over this. That’s up to — you know, he works for the president of the United States.”

    Outrage continues to spread through the halls of Congress, as members’ offices are inundated with calls from angry constituents. The Federal Reserve as well as the Treasury Department are coming under a harsh spotlight, since both gave taxpayer dollars to AIG (though the majority of the funding came from the Fed).

    White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs was peppered with questions at his daily briefing Monday on why the administration didn’t act earlier — like when it was offering another $30 billion to the company in early March.

    Gibbs said, “Based on what I read in the newspaper,” the administration learned about the bonuses last week.

    Obama and his band of USEFUL IDIOTS are so firmly in control of this, that they learned about it in the newspaper!!

    Now he and his crony’s are using lines like Obama “has inherited the most difficult first 100 days of any president, I would argue, including Franklin Roosevelt.”

    The truth is obama was never ready to lead our country and never will.

    He has spent more of his time attacking the other side than working on the pressing issues facing America. We hear Looney’s defend him and his first 100 days is laughable.

    @37 “Democrats wrote the big payout in the bill.

    Puddy can explain this to you as he explained the 1964 Civil Rights Act to me. You see, when a Democrat president submits something to a congress controlled by Democrat majority, and it passes due to the votes of a handful of northern Republican senators, then the Republican party claims ownership of the whole damed thing. It is by this very reasoning that Puddy concludes that only Republicans are to be credited for the 1964 Civil Rights Act. He gives no credit whatsoever to the Democrat presidents Kennedy and Johnson nor the Democrat controlled congress. Now, we all know Puddy would never stoop to being situational in his values or reasoning so I’m here to tell you that Republicans own the whole damned burrito, including the recently passed budget that you and Mr. Klynical whine about here every day – heh, all thanks to a handful of northern state Republican senators. Yup, you own it. I’m sure Puddy agrees.

    So straighten up, boy, act like a man, and quit the fucking whining, BEEE-ATCH!

    Until you Google this and understand you’re rants make no sense.

    Where did Puddy say anything like you wrote above? Let’s see it.

    You are implementing revisionist history. The Democratic needed the extra votes to pass the original Kennedy bill. Sure Johnson signed it but you have to give credit where credit is due. And just think there is the Richard Russell Senate Office Building named after a segregationist.

    Yes, credit the Republicans for the budget. Just as you do with the Civil Rights Act.

    Now, don’t you start squirming. Makes you look bad. Just accept that, by your own reasoning, Republicans own the present budget just as you say they own the Civil Rights Act.

    Tell you what, you simply copy and paste a comment from the open thread discussion where you credited anybody but Republicans for the Civil Rights Act. That ought to shut me up.

    You can’t do it, can you? You only gave Republicans credit for the Civil Rights Act. Not once did you give credit to a Democrat – not Kennedy, not Johnson, nor the Democrat congress. By the reasoning you used in that discussion, Republicans own today’s budget. Well, let’s not say “own”. Let’s just say the Republicans are the only party deserving of credit. Oh hell, you own it.

  48. 56

    Yes, Republicans proposed amendments. They were voted down. Republicans introduced bills. They were not passed.

    You see, it takes a thing called votes to pass a bill, or an amenndment. The American people took the votes away from the Republicans, because they were being very naughty with their votes.

  49. 57

    Steve spews:

    Didn’t I mention that excessive squirming is unseemly?

    Do you know how many Republican senators from southern states voted for the 1964 Civil Rights Act? Zero. That’s seven less than the number of southern state Democrat senators who voted for the act. Just like Obama and his budget, Johnson needed northen state Republicans to show some common sense and decency to get Civil Rights passed. I only look for Puddy to be consistent and give no credit to Democrats for the current budget just as he gave Democrats no credit for the Civil Rights Act. That leaves the credit to go to who? Republicans.

  53. 64

    Steve spews:

    Weeeell, excuuuuse meeee.

    It was 0-10 in the house, 0-1 in the senate. Either way, “zero” makes my point about the northern state Republicans, which your Wiki reference supports. You never address the faulty reasoning you used to deny credit to Democrats for the 1964 Civil Rights Act. When that same line of reasoning is applied to the current budget, with passage credited to northern state Republicans, Democrats deserve no credit at all. Just like the Civil Rights Act where you gave no credit whatsoever to Democrats. You credit Republicans for the one, you must credit them for the other.

    It’s not so difficult. Just give Republicans 100% credit for the current budget. Either that or you can give 100% credit to Democrats for the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Either one and the inconsistancies between your two arguments are eliminated.

  54. 66

    Steve spews:

    Heh, not a single southern state congressional Republican voted for the Civil Rights Act. Tell me, Puddy, how many southern state Dems voted for it? And tell me this, in which geographic region of the country are the Republicans still picking up support? The south, you say? Hmm, how about that. We call it the Republican “Southern Strategy”. Not that it worked out in the end.

    Oh, and when you see Cynical, please tell him that I miss the posts where he’d list all the black cities with black mayors and then rag about them being, um, black, I guess. I’d like to follow up on that one. I’d like to see if it was indeed the thinly veiled racism that it struck me as being at the time he posted that stuff.

    Just to summarize Puddy’s reasoning here, when Republican votes helped with passage of the Civil Rights Act, Democrats deserve no credit for the Civil Rights Act. When Republican votes help passage of the Obama budget, Democrats deserve all the credit for the budget. Put another way, Puddy is saying that Republicans own the Civil Rights Act, Democrats own the budget. Hmm, we seem to be dealing with absolutes. No consistancy in Puddy’s reasoning. Instead, whatever line of reasoning makes the Republicans look good and Democrats look bad, that’s the right line of reasoning for Puddy. Hmm, that strikes me as being situational. There is apparently no compass on board Puddy’s ship. Don’t you agree?

    As for St. Patrick’s Day, my brother used to joke that the one color you don’t wear in Dublin on March 17th is Orange, but then again, if people are celebrating the Patron Saint of Ireland, I would expect the locals to be waiving Irish Flags, which is Green, White, and Orange(a little bit like Italy and France’s flag), Orange signifies the protestants, Green the Catholics and Irish, and White in the middle signifies peace.(I saw footage online of a parade in Limerick and there were people waiving Irish flags, and a few other countries, celebrating diversity in Limerick) There had not been much problems between the faiths in the Republic of Ireland since independence, it was mostly in the North, and despite a few radical splinter groups, the Troubles are behind the people of Belfast, or so they think. Recent attacks on the PSNI and British Army soldiers are testing the resolve of the vast majority of people on both sides who want peace, and are behind the Good Friday Accords. The current First Minister of Northern Ireland is a Protestant, while the Deputy is a former IRA leader. The Real IRA thought the Army guys they gunned down as they were getting a pizza were occupiers. They were not, in fact, they were shipping out the next day, to Afghanistan. Sappers(who disarm IEDs) who were needed at the front. Up until this attack, Belfast was probably the favorite station for British Soldiers, a backwater compared to Basra or Kandahar.

    Steve, why you asking me when the data speaks for itself from WikiPedia. You tried to perform revisionist history on the vote. Pudddy busted you above so now you change your tune. Yeah you are squirming so now you change the attack on 1 Southern Republican senator. Big Wow Steve.

    Puddy sees you are squirming in the wind Steve.

    Steve, Puddy rags on black mayors all the time. The criminal Kwame Kilpatrick. The almost criminal John F Street of Philadelphia.

    Keep trying but Puddy not gonna kiss your ASS Steve. Keep trying to spin it anyway else. The facts are the facts and your revisionist historical attempt ain’t working. Spin squirm and shiver bud.

    See ya. Without Dirksen the VRA and CRA die. Johnson has nuthin to sign. Revise the historical fact any way you want.

    Puddybud, Hey it's the new year... spews:

    Just to summarize Steve in #70, Puddy didn’t say that. Steve has to make something up because Puddy showed the world the voting facts. Puddy always shows the URLs. Steve showed nothing above except faulty synaptic actions.

    It’s called the Dodd Amendment. He admitted to writing it on national news. AIG gets the bonuses.

    Revisionist history again.

    Steve @ 70: “whatever line of reasoning makes the Republicans look good and Democrats look bad, that’s the right line of reasoning for Puddy. Hmm, that strikes me as being situational. ”

    Indeed, I don’t think we need to go any deeper to analyze Puddy’s “thought” process. He’s a simplistic fellow who doesn’t like intellectual challenges. If you were to present him a policy dilemma and tell him to figure out what side he’s on, but without telling him which side the GOP was on, you would see the definition of flummoxed. He’d be reduced to a pool of drool in minutes.

    I revise nothing. I watch you squirm as you still can’t bring yourself to give one iota of credit for the 1964 Civil Rights Act to a Democrat. Nada. Zip. Nothing. Or, as with the southern state Republican Civil Rights votes in 1964 – zero. Oh, did I miss where you did give a Democrat any credit whatsoever? You need only post it and you win. Alas, you have nothing. Nada. Zip. Zero. For some reason you simply can’t bring yourself to give Dems credit when due.

    Thanks for making my point for me.

    “Steve, Puddy rags on black mayors all the time. The criminal Kwame Kilpatrick. The almost criminal John F Street of Philadelphia.”

    You never posted the list along with the inferrance that those cities are fucked up simply because they are populated and governed by blacks. You wouldn’t do that, I’m sure. However, Cynical did. So did troll. I call such posts thinly veiled racism. Far different than your quite proper criticism of mayors who just happen to be black.

    Steve, GBS and Puddy had a long multi-day conversation over this and the Philadelphia Project of Nixon and The Reagan Southern Strategy.

    Was covered at length and Puddy don’t need to cover it again. You already pestered me on the bad Republican behavior. Once Puddy produced you had to apologize. You want to have to save face and squirm and twist in the wind again?

    “What Jon Stewart needs is Jon Stewart. He could use a droll comedian to temper his ferocity and correct him when he’s wrong, as he was about the financial media, particularly CNBC and its excitable analyst Jim Cramer. They didn’t cover up the story of financial shenanigans. They didn’t even know it existed.”

    But Richard, that doesn’t stop the HA leftist buffoons here from understanding the truth! Good job Richard. For once Puddy agrees with you.

    An apology? Ha! You know the rules. Puddy got no link, Puddy get no apology.

    Let’s go back to this black mayor/city list of Troll’s and Cynical’s. I hadn’t given it much thought other than, “racist asshole”, but I was thinking about it on the drive home tonight. You remember those posts, don’t you? They put the list up many times. Lists of cities with large black populations, black mayors and high murder rates. Why black? Why not left-handed, one-eyed Irish or Filipino dwarfs? And did you notice as I did that Troll and Cynical never put up any commentary to go with these lists? It was like there was some self-evident truth to be gleaned from the cherry-picked data. An equation, maybe? Hmm, black plus black equals murder?

    Maybe you could do me a favor, Puddy. Next time you and Cynical are hanging out, take a moment and look him in the eye and ask him, “Why did you post those lists of black mayors?” Then tell me what he had to say for himself.

    Puddy @ 83
    I hardly read all threads, and I generally skip your posts on the threads I do read. I don’t fancy your repetitive, self-adulatory nonsense. In any event, your explanation of why you use the third person to refer to yourself is utterly irrelevant. Plainly, any person with an inflated sense of self would think that such explanation matters, but it would hardly matter to a diagnostic psychologist. Puddy, you are so full of yourself. You are not a serious thinker. You can’t be reasoned with, so bashing you is the only rational option.

    This just in from FoxNews:

    Florida Republican Rep. Connie Mack called for Treasury Sec. Tim Geithner to lose his job Wednesday, becoming the first Capitol Hill lawmakers to call for his ouster over AIG’s using tens of millions of taxpayer dollars for executive bonuses.

    “Quite simply, the Timothy Geithner experience has been a disaster. The Treasury Department is in disarray. Taxpayer dollars are being wasted. America’s economy hangs in the balance. America needs and deserves a treasury secretary who can truly lead us forward,” Mack said in a written statement.

    He called on Geithner, the former New York Federal Reserve chief, either to resign or be fired, and said President Obama should nominate a new secretary with “the experience and leadership skills America deserves.”

    Obama is really “raising the bar” “giving us hope and change we can laugh at” etc.

    While FINALLY Obama understands he won the election and now, for the first time in his life, must be a cheerleader and defender of his actions……….while Obama is telling us things aren’t that bad..his runnin’ mate, Joe “The Chronic Liar” Biden tells us a whopper that the economy is WORSE than the Depression!
    What a whopper!
    Depression unemployment===24.5%

    Can’t wait for the next whopper Joe!

    Obama is leader of the gang that can’t shoot straight. After DEMANDING the wheel at the helm of our Country, Obama has done nothing but provide humor…careening from ditch to ditch trying to steer the bus.

    Let’s recap. I said that it seems to me that you are incapable of crediting John Kennedy, Robert Kennedy, Johnson or any other Dem for passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Rather, you credit only Republicans. Repeatedly. You offer no rebuttal, no links, nothing whatsoever that says otherwise.
