These days is just one big "PENIS!" game.
Here's a fun exchange on CNN this morning that neatly encapsulates that culture. It starts with Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) -- the top Republican on the Senate Budget Committee -- attacking President Obama's budget proposal for not reducing the deficit by more than $1 trillion over 10 years. From there, Sessions dodges the expected questions about why his party doesn't take the first swing of the ax at Social Security. And after clumsily passing the buck back to Obama, Sessions admits that $1 trillion is a pretty good start ... when Republicans propose it!
"A one trillion reduction is insignificant," Sessions insists. "This is nowhere near what's necessary to avoid the fiscal nightmare that this nation is facing. ... It doesn't touch any of the entitlements, it only has some reductions in the discretionary accounts."
Read teh rest. If it's not clear to you by now that Republicans are NOT serious about the budget and the deficit, you have not been paying attention. No matter what the subject may be whether it's "entitlements", defense cuts or health care their response is simply to SCREAM LOUDER!
We should giggle every time one of these clowns opens their mouths.
