Conservatives wanted lower income taxes for the wealthy, and Obama signed off on bigger tax cuts than any that Reagan ever dared propose.
Maybe we can agree, irrespective of the IRS scandal, that the existing tax system is a wash, and we need something shorter & clearer. The irony is that we have crusaders like Her Majesty wailing about the need to tax the rich, while pumping the loopholes like mad. But that's the sort of prevarication one expects from our neo-aristocracy.
Conservatives resisted health care reform, so Obama signed off on a giant corporate give-away to the lobby that owns more senators and representatives on both sides of the aisle than any others.
I mean, your Orwellian claptrap is ruin. What sane person wants your ruin?
Conservatives resisted closing Guantanamo, so it hasn't happened.
I'm sorry, have elections had consequences?
Conservatives resisted ending the war in Afghanistan, so we are still there.
Hey, didn't the no-talent rodeo clown campaign on the 'Stan as the correct war?
Conservatives resisted doing anything to make college more accessible to lower-income Americans, so we have the same broken system.
The only thing that can improve college access is getting the federal government out of education, which was and remains a 10th Amendment violation.
Conservatives wanted to see the PATRIOT act continued on, so we see it continue on.
Was it a party-line vote like the Affordable Care Act, please?
How many more examples would you like?
It was silly of me to expect other than crap from you.
I'm curious which 'conservatives' you mean
Conservative, in the sense of any elected official in the federal government who has an (R) after their name, or anyone who supports them enthusiastically.
So you say 'Conservative' where I would say 'Progressive'. Fine.
. . .determined to dedicate unfathomable volumes of time and treasure towards bringing the current administration to an early end. If the government were indeed guaranteed to fail regardless then why bother trying to bring down the current guy to install your favorite in his place?
I don't think reform-minded Americans have spent even a fraction of the boodle
Thankfully, lip-service is relatively cheap. Yeah, conservatives haven't spent much so far on impeaching Obama, but that is because they haven't started any procedures yet. The tab will skyrocket if they actually do.
More so, anyone who is genuinely "reform-minded" should focus on more effective ways to deal with the situation. Wasting billions on impeachment when we are this close to the end - arguably much closer to the natural end of the term than to any conceivable end for an impeachment trial - would not be a useful act of reform.
I kind of agree with you, from the standpoint that BHO is pure concrete galoshes for the Democrats. The more of their crypto-Marxist twaddle he blows up and takes with him, the better.
senselessly blown on General Motors
I understand that you see job preservation as terrible because you hate working class Americans. However, the federal government has actually been paid back by GM - and ahead of schedule at that. I don't recall the war in Iraq ever paying us back in the ways that the administration who started it promised it would.
Look at your cheap deflections! GM is about crappy domestic policy, not crappy foreign policy. And I'm all for the workers, and dead-set against the UAW.
I'm not sure what you have against people who work.
What I have is a useless President. Every time that clown 'pivots to jobs' another fistful get whacked. Stand by for him to stand up and request another Keynesian coke-hit to keep him buzzed until Her Majesty arrives.
... and, back to your war against reading we go, apparently.
Should I read that liar, Dana Milbank?
the reformers should spend more time winning elections
Then go out and help on a campaign. Stop advocating for senselessly wasting money on an impeachment that won't change anything.
Now who's the illiterate one? I've been arguing the unlikelihood of impeachment for a long time, and actively against it for the last few weeks. See above in this reply.
in addition to the rear-guard action of halting the rodeo clown's depravities
You just negated everything you said by going back to the "rodeo clown" bullshit. Stick to one side of the story, please.
Rodeo clown, rodeo clown, rodeo clown. Apparently the high percentage of validity contained in that description bothers you. Rodeo clown.
