I think it's the nation's talking points. Look for Obama to show up on Fail Blog soon.

(7949.09 - 7223.98) / 7949.09 = 9.1% != 30%

Therefore, your math is off by 229%

Thus, accurate conservative caricatures are in order, ergo a thread wrt Boss Limbaugh.

In that regard, Boss did graduate high school, however I seriously doubt that Boss could do the 5th grade math shown above.

Rush the Double Naught Spy;

I should have said since being elected. (9139-6574)/9139X100=28% Wall Street and Teh World are giving Obama a big vote of "no confidence". The Dow opened at 8237 on 1/20. While Obama was being inaugurated the market was going down.


Rush! Palin! Token Black man for the RNC! Bush's fault!

But you didn't, and that's the whole point for a thread such as this one.

Does the DJIA get to vote? I kind of don't think so.

Was the DJIA unaware of the Inauguration? I kind of don't think so. I mean, the DJIA almost increased back to it's 1/19 close the very next day (1/21).

In other words, prove causation between the Inauguration and the drop in the DJIA the very same day.

Then you can proceed to prove causation between everything the Obama administration does and everything the DJIA does.

Have fun with that one Luntz.

Frank. Give it a rest. The right doesn't give a shit about "reality". I'm sure that when the market ticks up a little Dana Parino well go on the teevee and claim the credit should go to Bush.... oh, wait!

WTF are you talking about? Conspiracies have got nothing to do with HEAD-ON IN-YOUR-FACE revisionist history currently taking place wrt Bush.

Isn't it interesting, the bookends to Bush's presidency? If you were to listen to Ari Fleischer and guys like you you'd think Bush WASN'T the president during 9/11 (that was, apparently, Clinton's watch) and that he wasn't president when the economy melted down in September (because Obama was running for president, so it wasn't his fault then either because...you know...he was just riding the last couple of months out).

Funny that.

Exactly. It's kinda like when Ari Fleischer went on Hardball and said we all ought to be extremely thankful to Bush for keeping us safe. WTF? Are you joking? Hello! The greatest terrorist strike in the history of the U.S. happened on Bush's watch!

Of course the bonus thingy is a distraction from where the billions paid to AIG went. Which was never a mystery to me. Talk about double dipping bailout! Holly Transfer of Wealth Batman!
post #55 of 111
This thread is supposed to be about Rush, but seems to be also about various things...


A GOP senator, Grassley, said the AIG admins should either quit or commit suicide. I agree with the notion; why stop just with the dorks over at AIG?

 

Your = the possessive of you, as in, "Your name is Tom, right?" or "What is your name?"

 

You're = a contraction of YOU + ARE as in, "You are right" --> "You're right."

Rush! Palin! Token Black man for the RNC! Bush's fault!

Ignoring 1) that tying presidential success or failure with the daily machinations of the market is stupid and
2) Obama somehow being responsible for the market prior to his presidency

does that mean it's OK to blame GWB for the 40% drop between October 2007 and October 2008? Was that Wall Street and The World giving George a big vote of "no confidence"?

But I guess since he was the favorite Obama's to blame for everything since March 08 when it became evident he'd be the nominee?

Or maybe it was all George Bushes awesomeness that go the market up past 14,000, and then "Wall Street and Teh World" realized a democrat would probably win, so they're responsible for it all?

Obama: No earmarks for 2009

Quote:
"We can no longer accept a process that doles out earmarks based on a member of Congress' seniority, rather than the merit of the project," Obama's statement said.


Obama bans earmarks from economic package

Quote:
He told reporters at his transition office that his package will set a "new higher standard of accountability, transparency and oversight. We are going to ban all earmarks, the process by which individual members insert projects without review."

So I assume then you'll demand that Darrell Issa return the $7.6 million in pork, $142,500 of which is for the French Valley Airport Feasibility Study and $400,000 for the City of Oceanside Community Safety Partnership Collaborative.

Or I'm sure you'll be equally as pissed off at Sen. David Vitter's 142 earmarks totaling $249.2M, $6M of which is for researching subterranean termites. Yeowza!

Maybe James Inhofe's $80.2M pork package for animal waste management will do it for you? Stinky.

Perhaps the $25.8M in pork projects Jon Kyl of Arizona threw in to the bill will get you going?

I'm suspecting the $75.5M in forage animal production research in Kentucky has got you really pissed of at Mitch McConnell, Bitcher #1.

Orin Hatch is a good guy, so I'm sure you won't be too bothered that he snuck in $63.2M in pork projects for parking lots on Ohio? Right?

Shall I continue?

I thought it was funny how mad Mel Martinez got at all the pork in the bill considering he took $106.7M in pork for the lovely state of Florida. $106M is a lot of shekels.

I'm sure John Ensign's furious outrage over pork spending wasn't spurred by his $52.6M for bus facilities in Nevada.

When Jim Bunning of Kentucky shouted "CUT THEM ALL OUT", he wasn't referring to the 13 earmarks for weather warning sirens.

As Saxby Chambliss was waxing poetic about the evils of Obama's pork he was secretly thankful he got 67 earmarks totaling $45.7M for blueberry production and cotton inspection.

And lastly but not final, Doc Hastings took $16.8M in pork after issuing a statement about how "disappointed" he was by the amount of pork in the bill.

Just what exactly are we not supposed to be paying attention to with Obama?

If they ask for it and make a case they'll get it. Because the american public wants this recession to end. According to a recent poll the public believes the Democrats more likely to bring an end to the recession.

The one thing I've learned lately... the louder Republicans bitch about something the more full of shit they really are. Rail against pork. Point out they've got big fat all over hands. Change the subject.

There's a simple solution, really: anyone who rails against "pork" should have their pet projects stripped from the stimulus bill, immediately, end of discussion.

Same way the governors fulminating against evil federal money should simply stop getting such money, immediately, the end.

This should be between elected representatives and their constituencies. If such representatives want to use money flowing to the people that elected them to score cheap, hypocritical political points, they should be held to their convictions. Then the voters can decide what to do with them.

Yes but using clips I could make a politician declare they are humping a goat. There is a reason we have this concept called context.

Besides, we all need to remember Stewart's own defense when people try to hold him to journalistic standards... he's a comedian and his show follows sock puppets making crank calls.

I'll laugh at your source and mock it because that is what it wants and demands.
