Live-blogging Day 2 of the Democratic Convention.

5:34 Central Time: I jump in, watching C-SPAN, just in time to see the ever-bold, ever-confident Chuck Schumer stride onto the stage. He says: "Tonight, we welcome a New Yorker: President Bill Clinton as our prime time speaker." He does a little fist pump on "speaker." "It's no accident that Democrats celebrate" — a bigger fist pump — "our past Presidents, while Republicans virtually banish theirs" — biggest fist pump and a big smile.

6:40: Emanuel Cleaver gets the conventioneers fired up, but the hoarse-throated yelling doesn't play so well over the television, just like the Howard Dean scream seemed nutty outside of the room where the scream was screamed.

6:48: "Mitt Romney doesn't know a thing about hard work or responsibility," says the president of the AFL-CIO, Richard Trumka, who likes to portray work as "mopping, vacuuming, and picking up our trash."

7:01: President Obama has focused on jobs since Day 1, says Nancy Pelosi. So... do we get to judge him by the result, or does he get reelection for effort?

7:07: Lots of Dems tonight are talking about "the American Dream," as, of course, the GOP did last week. It's kind of nice to see so much consensus about the idea of individuals working hard — for themselves and their families — and succeeding economically, and interesting that everyone's enthusiastic about calling that "American," as though they're into patriotism, even though I imagine it's the dream among all human beings to be able to achieve economic well-being for themselves and their families through their own work. The real question, rather obviously, is which party will do better for these American dreamers of the American dream. What is the Democrats' argument here? I really don't see it. They seem to be copying the Republicans' theme, criticizing the Republicans for saying it, and insisting they have some dream-boosting methodology.

7:15: Another parade of women. Last night's was the women of the House. Now, it's the women of the Senate. This segment was preceded by a treacly video with a song about "a woman's voice," which apparently, "can sing any song." Okay. Sing "A Boy Named Sue." Gotcha! Didn't I?

7:25: American Idol runner-up Jessica Sanchez sings "You're all I need to get by...." And then a video of Barack Obama comes on.

7:28: A young woman promotes Planned Parenthood, where she found a nurse who was able to diagnose her endometriosis, after a whole lot of doctors had no idea what was wrong with her and even accused her of being some sort of drama queen. What the hell kind of crap doctors was she going to? Come on. Endometriosis is a standard ailment. Are we to think misogyny prevents its detection? (I can't be fact checking, but, seriously, who were these doctors who couldn't diagnose endometriosis?)

7:32: The president of Planned Parenthood asserts that "Mitt Romney says he'll get rid of Planned Parenthood." Can I get a fact check? I just don't believe that.

9:16: Sorry I haven't updated in a while, but I've been bored to tears. Now, it's Elizabeth Warren, so...  She's excited about going on before Bill Clinton, who "had the good sense to marry one of the coolest women on the planet."

9:20: "The system is rigged," Elizabeth Warren asserts.

9:36: I found Warren pretty boring. When the crowd chanted "Warren, Warren," it sounded like "boring, boring." What was boring was mainly what was boring about so many of the other speeches. So much talk about economic opportunity, with no noticeable plan for furthering it, other than statements about how other people out there — not you! — ought to pay their "fair share" of taxes, and this doctrine that you've got to build the economy from the middle out. She got fervent about the notion that corporation are not people. They don't have hearts, and they don't die, and so forth.

9:38: Bill Clinton says: "I want to nominate a man who's cool on the outside, but who burns for America on the inside."

9:58: Clinton goes on at great length on the topic of how Republicans won't cooperate and compromise and work with the Democrats. Then he says he watched the GOP convention last week:"Did y'all watch their convention? I did."
In Tampa, the Republican argument against the President's reelection was actually pretty simple, pretty snappy. It went something like this: We left him a total mess, he hasn't cleaned it up fast enough, so fire him and put us back in. But they did it well. They looked good. They sounded good. 
And he says he was convinced they were "honorable people," who really believe what they said and will keep their commitments, so the key for Democrats is to make sure people understand what they believe.

10:09: Wow, he's going on a long time. It's reminiscent of his DNC keynote speech in 1988, when his going on too long turned into a huge joke. That was Clinton's original national reputation: The guy who talked too long.

10:27: It's almost 20 minutes since I said "Wow, he's going on a long time," and he's still going. This is insane. His inflections are getting wacky, like he's in love with how cute he is.

10:38: Finally, it's over. He spoke for 50 minutes. That was really self-indulgent.

11:04 (my time, after pausing): Obama comes out to interact with Clinton. Clinton gives a low bow. And now, they still have to do the roll call. I feel sorry for the kiddies in the crowd. It's late!

This was allegedly one of Obama's signature legislative achievements.

Yet the Dems are still screaming about "equal pay"

Funny how that works, huh?


A very astute point.

AllieOop said...

Meth you moron, many people do not agree with defunding Planned Parenthood.

garage mahal said...

Opposition to your sickening agenda must either be killed (the preferable option) or declared "lunatic" and be administered shock treatment till they "get it right." What truly execrable filth you are.

You misunderstood. I don't care if God or Jerusalem is in the Dem platform. Could not care less either way. I would prefer it not to be, but I'm only one person. It's when Dems kow-tow to fucking whiners and ghouls like you banging their cages is when it bothers me.

Paddy O said...

"Just for the sake of discussion, let's say Althouse decides she will pay each of her regular commenters"

Wait a second, you're not getting paid? Why would anyone comment for free?

Matthew Sablan said...

But, should the government be funding a political group?

After the DNC, it is clear that Planned Parenthood is a partisan group with a substantial amount of their activity focused on lobbying and political action.

I don't think it is appropriate for the government to fund non-profits, who then shill for them.

Democrats are not pro-choice they are pro-abortion. They tried to bring-up the other choices during interviews at the DNC and they had no idea how to respond.

Wonkette says Democrats are insane

I was somewhat amused by Wonkette's whine that recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel "goes against longstanding U.S. policy".

Oh, so it's kind of like recognizing gay marriage, then. :)

Saint Croix said...

In fairness I don't think they're booing God. They're booing the dishonesty of the chair.

"Let me do that again."

Like a deer caught in the headlights.

Apparently Democrats don't actually like Israel. Or God.

So now it's pure cover-up.

It'll be fascinating to see how much the media covers this. Will they spin it? Or will they actually cover it?

Bob Ellison said...

I still think I'm Michael Jordan! Someone pay me a billion dollars!

How does this differ from the "equal pay" argument? The implication is that because one can establish a statistic (like moss tends to grow on the north side of the tree), one can proclaim discrimination.

Can someone please show the causality that would solve the mystery?

Matthew Sablan said...

Hm... sounds like an example where private charity and community solved problems the government could not.

Synova said...

I am my sister's keeper.

So pay up, bub, my sister needs some money.

What does being your brother's or sister's keeper have to do with an over-regulatory and bloated government.

So Jaytard or Meth head will now call the good sister a slut, right?

97% of Planned Parenthood's services to pregnant women are abortions.

Bullshit.

Revenant said...

Planned Parenthood does far more birth control than abortions. How difficult is that to understand, who is being obtuse now?

Still you, I'm afraid. Although the idea that you can cancel out immoral behavior by handing out free condoms does have its humor value -- kind of a secular form of buying indulgences, eh? :)

Synova said...

Some religions feed the poor and run charities.

Nuns on a Bus shake down the public.

Matthew Sablan said...

The RNC did a lot less yelling at each other than the DNC, just a note.

Critter said...

even the nuns are for abortion.

Patrick said...

Allie,

PP's existence is extremely offensive to me. Nevertheless, if given the power to do so, I wouldn't "get rid of it." I would, however, end all government funding for it. Those are very different things.

DrSquid said...

This is comical. The NFL season has kicked off, and the comment thread here has ground to a standstill. Enjoy the Dem's show diehards.

Wally Kalbacken said...

What am I missing here? Sandra Fluke appears in the WaPo schedule as "Sandra Fluke, Lawyer and Activist". She just completed her law degree at Georgetown Law Center in June. May have taken the bar somewhere in July (but seemed a bit busy on the Obama campaign to be prepping for that), and would not know the results from that for at least 3 more weeks (longer in some states.) I don't think she is admitted anywhere yet. I'd call her a person with a JD, and not a lawyer.

Matthew Sablan said...

Watching the DNC is like... everything is seen through a distorting lens that completely ignores what the RNC actually said and proposed. One thing about Republicans is that, in general, they have a much, much, infinitely better, handle on what Democrats think and believe.

edutcher said...

The Demos voted against God and Jerusalem before they voted for them.

Michael Haz said...

This convention is a freak show.

Consider this: It is being held in North Carolina, a state Obama really needs to win. A state in the Bible belt.

Despite that, the convention has been about abortion, mandatory insurance coverage for abortion and abortifacients, same-sex marriage, and today, a hearty booing (three times) of the mention of God's name.

Buh-bye NC electoral votes.

Revenant said...

What does being your brother's or sister's keeper have to do with an over-regulatory and bloated government.

If my preferred Presidential candidate had a brother living in poverty in Kenya that he was doing precisely fuck-all to help, I'd find a smarter biblical reference than "am I my brother's keeper".

But I'm an atheist, so what do I know.

Matthew Sablan said...

Wait... you're worried that Romney hasn't forgotten his extremely generous and giving ways?

Synova said...

Well this guy looks Happy.

Maybe she's one of the "ayes"? There is still some soul left in the Democrat Party, though it is waning. I predict this will boast Villagairosa's career. It was sort of a reverse Gavin Newsome move.

el polacko said...

y'know there were complaints about how the repubcon was being selectively shown on cnn and msnbc but, tonight, both of those (cough) news channels have ignored nearly this whole event. they have just yammerred on and on about 'god' and how repubs hate social issues, etc. while not showing ANY of the speakers. you wouldn't even know that there's a convention going on during their panel discussions. it's almost like they don't want anybody to see what their party is all about either.

TWM said...

I don't know what the percentage of PP's services are, but they did 330,000 abortions in 2010. And that's from their own annual report.

No doubt if you were to check the records a very high number of those, perhaps most, would be minorities.

Make of that what you will.

Matthew Sablan said...

Mitt Romney learned to save missing girls and show compassion to dying kids.

AllieOop said...

Patrick, I fully understand that, but I respectfully disagree with you that it shouldn't recieve government funding. It's offensive to me that we went to war in Iraq and that many lives were lost needlessly and much money went down that black hole.

Synova said...

Oops... the smile should have been a clue.

He's about to slander Romney's character, probably going to share Romney's secret thoughts and motivations.

Matthew Sablan said...

... No. Your shareholders is -everyone.-

Matthew Sablan said...

So... he's FOR Romney lowering everyone's taxes like he plans?

Jay said...

AllieOop said...
Jaytard, I do not trust you to state ANYTHING accurately. You keep repeating these "facts", where is your cite?


Awwwww, it has to hurt to see your worldview utterly obliterated.

One could view the Planned Parenthood annual report.

And this Planned Parenthood fact sheet

But you're not interested in facts, at all.

chickelit said...

I'm with Penny: "activist" is a dirty word and a calling.

TWM said...

"It's offensive to me that we went to war in Iraq and that many lives were lost needlessly and much money went down that black hole."

So you can see how it might be offensive to others than 330,000 babies were aborted in 2010 I am sure. Especially since they are funded by our tax dollars.

Patrick said...

Jake,

I don't know what the percentage is, but PP litemizes its services, so it counts only an actual D & C as an abortion. Most of its other services are related to that service.

Jay said...

Jake Diamond said...

Bullshit.


Keep telling yourself that you intellectual coward.

Life is easier that way.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Ooooohhhh!!!! Let's bash the Jewish Delaware Governor's Israel creds. Or something.

Odd, Jewish statements I read called the cave ridiculous and pandering. Jews vote overwhelmingly Democratic, year after year. maybe they know something right wing conservatives don't.

Revenant said...

I wouldn't "get rid of it." I would, however, end all government funding for it. Those are very different things.

That's because you don't share the totalitarian view of the modern political Left (and much of the Right) that everything desirable is to be funded and everything undesirable is to be taxed or banned.

There are still some Americans -- although, sadly, not a majority -- who still disagree that "freedom" and "government support" are synonymous.

Synova said...

At least he's not yelling.

... wow, he seriously just said that it's good business practice to destroy your market and your business and pocket the spoils.

I'm calling shenanigans on the "proud capitalist" thing. Fellow is telling fibs.

Jay said...

So as we see:

332,278 abortions / 7,021 prenatal clients / 977 adoption referrals leads us to 97%

Of course silly wittle Jakie shouts "Bullshit: and those facts become untrue.

Because they make wittle Jakie butthurt.

Odd, Jewish statements I read called the cave ridiculous and pandering.

The only person who "caved" was Villaraigosa. The measure to reintroduce the Jerusalem language failed to garner the necessary support for passage.

So, no, the Democrats didn't pander; they rejected the pro-Israel language outright. They were simply overruled by their leaders.

AllieOop said...

Jaytard, from your own link, abortion services, 3%. How stupid are you?

So Allie, we agree that pretty much most of what government does will piss someone off.

How about: "The less of it, the better."

Matthew Sablan said...

Let's roll unemployment numbers again. When Romney left Mass? Full employment (~5%).

Obama? About 8%.

Who likes creating jobs again?

They don't need a political party to enforce ethnic solidarity.

330,000 abortions. It sounds so much more disgusting than a percentage don't you think?

Oh and I love the party of slavery & Jim Crow whooping about abortions.

48% of which are done on black babies.

Quick Jakie, yell "bullshit"!

It will make you feel better, I promise!

Or do we need to send your ugly ass to remedial reading?

How about you just shut up and stop proving how dumb you are?

Matthew Sablan said...

Let's roll out those "are we better" numbers.

Matthew Sablan said...

Remember: Obama's tax cuts, brilliant. Romney's tax cuts: Unpatriotic.

Synova said...

See now because... The "refinery" owner doesn't make money for the shareholders when the refinery goes out of business. No one makes money by going out of business. No one lines their pocket or serves the bottom line by firing workers and closing factories.

Business is win/win.

Why do Democrats who lie about being "proud capitalists" insist that Business is the enemy.

sleepless nights said...

I know ppl whose doctors misdiagnosed endometriosis. Good doctors, etc. It's become more common to catch it, but it's one of those things that is easy to misdiagnosis. It's not *misogyny*, but rather a different focus. Nurse practitioners are famous for getting it right - especially at a Planned Parenthood or otherwise femalecentric clinic. Remember you live in a university town. That kind of focus is built in.

Saint Croix said...

Disappointing in the sense they capitulate to lunatics like you way too much.

They're not capitulating to the Republicans. Are you kidding? When does Obama capitulate to Republicans?

A sizable percentage of Democrats are Christians and Jews with a strong faith in God. They were adding that language because they want to appease this very large part of the Democrat party.

Like African-Americans who are Baptists.

And Hispanics who are Catholic.

And Jews.

But your party decided to fill it's convention with very secular people, many of whom are obviously hostile to Israel. And God.

The DNC knows that's not going to fly. You think they're "capitulating" to Republicans? Ha!

Atheism might be tolerated--although we've never had a President run on disbelief.

But hostility to religion? It's idiotic. It's beyond stupid.

And I'm not making a moral or theological argument here, just a pragmatic political one. They screwed the pooch.

elkh1 said...

If Obama has focused on job since day 1, it only proves that he has no ideas what he was doing, he is totally incompetent. And we should re-hire him to focus another thousand days on one thing that he has failed miserably in the previous thousand days?

Have mercy on those stupid youths who voted for him four years ago, and are languishing in their parents' basements all these times.

That is a philosophical argument you are making genius, not a political one. As a political argument there are 10's of millions more people than you can drum up that would love to see federal funding for the death house you so love to defend, you disgusting human being.

2. Prenatal Care
3. Adoption referrals

When you add those numbers up and evaluate them, you realize 97% of the services to pregnant women are abortions.

Hysterical.

Politifact is a Democratic party organ.

Also, note how they prove this is a "lie"

It ignores other statistics, such as the 1,158,924 pregnancy tests the group provided, and the fact that those 332,278 abortions were just 3 percent of the 11,383,900 total procedures that Planned Parenthood health centers provided that year to its 3 million patients.

By of course pretending a pregnancy test is a service to pregnant women then shifting back to the 3% talking point.

Good job Jakie, you proved yet again you have not critical thinking abilities.

Whenever I hear jaytard spewing his toilet-level invective (the most gracious he's capable of), I'm reminded of two scenarios from the animal kingdom, neither of them human, of course.

Wittle Jakie actually thinks this is a rebuttal!

First, it assumes that pregnant women only go to Planned Parenthood for one of those three options.

Well, when you have 3 services you perform specific to being pregnant, that would be commonly understood as services to pregnant women.

But when you're unsuccessfully defending the indefensible, you have to change the definition of terms.

That always helps.

CBS is covering it.

According to Jay, only women who know they aren't pregnant are permitted to take pregnancy tests.


Right dumbass!!

Because that's totally what I said!

Really, it is!

Oh, and pregnancy tests are like services to pregnant women, even the women who test negative for a pregnancy.

They are!

Idiot.

Don't worry simpleton, you have to attack strawmen, you've already proven you're gullible. So it was the logical next step.

Jake Diamond said...

Politifact is a Democratic party organ.

Instead of Jay's typical denial of reality, he's created a fantasy about Politifact so that he can ignore the facts.

Keep spinning, Jay! The more you spin, the more I laugh.

"Some people still refuse to believe the reality of Juanita Broaddrick."

Yes but look who it is. A well known Jew hating nut job. I wouldn't worry about it too much.

===============
Even though the Jews are the lomg-time masters at milking Victimhood in a way that puts black race card players to shame, it has gone on long enough.

And blacks basically learned you call any disagreement with a black issue raaaaaaacist!!!!! from Jews that had learned to intimidate and shut down debate on some of Israels more odious policies and some of the Wall Street corrupt bankers by screaming "anti-Semite"!!!!!!

Matthew Sablan said...

I love how Politifact focuses on "exact words" like "walk in" and "mugged" for Republicans, but tries to find "context" for Democrats.

Lem said...

My people? Mi Jente?

Are they Americans?

OMG.. She is lying about Romney!

She is saying that Romney would put people on foodstamps?

Her voice is trembling...

Saint Croix said...

ABC has it on the front page, but buries the lead.

No news here! Look away!

Damn!

I missed Slobbering Barney, although it may be everybody's trying to keep him as low profile as possible after the voice "vote" earlier in the proceedings.
PS One way Little Zero has changed things for the better - just watch Hannity eat Jessuh Jackson's lunch.

The Rev was absolutely stunned that he could be talked to that way. Race is no longer the protection it once was for someone like him.

Now we know why Jessuh wanted to emasculate our Choom 4 years ago.

Um, what facts?

Were the numbers disputed?
No

Was another service to pregnant women identified?
No

Can you bring yourself to realize you believe propaganda?
Of course not

But you'll shout "facts" as if you even know what that means.

Its easier that way.

Arizona's immigration law asks for ID less frequently than the people who attended the convention are required to present.

Or all the people on lists, waiting, to come here.

I'm not the one linking to to utter dreck such as:


Schmidt’s claim also overlooks that pregnant women who "walk into" a clinic could be there for any reason, not just for pregnancy-related services.



I'm liking to the actual services performed.

Want to guess why you're doing that wittle Jakie?

Hint: it has to do with projection.

Methadras said...

Lem said...

Dear God (oh wait), we can't have Romney trying to compete with Urkel, why that would be just, oh I don't know, trying to usurp the Democrat principals of government charity. And by gum, that's unAmerican!!! MAN THE CANNONS!!!

Lem said...

Obama bought her!

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Also, Jewish Democrats count too, but they vote against their own best interests.

Actually, they're voting for an interest called morality and civilization.

They've had a lot of practice living in societies that showed them plenty of inferior alternatives. One of which would include the platform put forward by the RNC.

Jake Diamond said...

Well, when you have 3 services you perform specific to being pregnant, that would be commonly understood as services to pregnant women.

Yeah Jay, we get it... Your brain doesn't function properly. You see, pregnant women can take advantage of services that aren't exclusively offered to pregnant women.

In conclusion, Jay is full of shit. But everyone knew that already, right?

Saint Croix said...

NBC doesn't mention it at all. Wow.

Kind of like Kevin Bacon in Animal House. "All is well!"

Matthew Sablan said...

The economy's looking up? Let's roll those numbers.

Jay said...

Schmidt’s claim also overlooks that pregnant women who "walk into" a clinic could be there for any reason, not just for pregnancy-related services.

Notice none are named.

Gee, I wonder why?

I mean, its not like they're going to give a pregnant woman a mamogram.

They don't treat colds.

A pregnant woman doesn't need birth control pills.

Notice this examination is all way, way too complicated for wittle jakie.

Matthew Sablan said...

GM is doing so great there are rumblings that it might need another bailout.

Revenant said...

I always have to wonder what people who followed the rules think of illegals.

In my experience the most vocal opponents of illegal immigration are legal immigrants, especially ones from Asia.

They're also the most vocal opponents of communism -- or at least the ones from China, Cambodia, and Vietnam are. :)

Jake Diamond said...

Were the numbers disputed?
No


Yes they were. You need to find someone to help you with your poor reading comprehension.

Was another service to pregnant women identified?
No


Yes, other services were identified. You need to find someone to help you with your evident stupidity.

Jay said...

Jake Diamond said...

Hysterical.

You keep changing those definitions and shouting "bullshit"

Your silly political beliefs become logical when you do shit like that.

"Suppose instead that commenters paid for the privilege or Althouse went private with a subscription? That would quickly sort the wit from the chafe commenter-wise."

Sure. It's headed there, chick, but in the meantime? I'm just here enjoying myself, and when the time comes, I'll ante.

But that's been a MUCH harder sell for me with major news providers because they continue to ignore their role as the fifth estate.

"Fair and Balanced" is a HIGH standard, and I honestly have faith that Americans from either party will know it when they see it, or hear it, or feel it in their gut.

But they have to WANT that.

When heads do the vertical "nod and bob" for more than ten minutes?

Change channels, read a different newspaper OR... call yourself a fuckin' rouged out, roughed out, rugged Independent!

Jay said...

Jake Diamond said...
Yes they were. You need to find someone to help you with your poor reading comprehension.


Really?

Point me to the part of the article that disputed 332,278 abortions / 7,021 prenatal clients / 977 adoption referrals.

Thanks, I can't wait to read all about it.

wildswan said...

Hagar
What is your source for saying that there was a slave market in Taos in 1930? and for the rumor about Mabel Dodge Luhan? I know a bit about her and never heard that rumor. Are you channeling Harry Reid or what?

Jay said...

Jake Diamond said...

Yes, other services were identified.


You keep telling yourself that.

Really, it helps you live with these lies.

And, it shows you don't have any critical thinking abilities.

Because if anyone would know about unfair accusations of anti-Semitism it would be Cedarford.

I have never heard any Jew denounce criticism of Wall Street as anti-Semitic.

Has anyone?

Cedarford is certainly one of your more imaginative specimens here. He probably imagines that the Jew-Evil of the Google that powers this Blogger comment board was removed by special anti-Jew sanitizing practices.

He sounds like someone in an insane asylum, screaming about how a Jew gave him the evil eye.

Althousians must feel very proud of him.

Jake Diamond said...

Wrong again! Reading isn't your forte, is it Jay?

Matthew Sablan said...

I'd be better too if the government shoveled millions to bail me out.

Synova said...

Like Ford isn't a US automobile company.

Matthew Sablan said...

If anyone believes that Obama didn't think about Michigan's electoral votes when he took money from the rest of the country's pocket to pump up theirs, they're silly.

Jay said...

By the way, I just loved this from these big "fact checkers"

Planned Parenthood does not collect information on the pregnancy status of every female patient who comes into our health centers

So they dispute numbers they can't actually provide evidence to dispute.

Oh, but don't worry, Jakie is counting pregnancy tests, (remember: you don’t know the total number of pregnant women it is based on) because, um, that's like logical and stuff!

Who's this lamer pretending that conventional bankruptcy wasn't an option for GM?

The idea that a dictator has to be counted on to save every company that fails -- for whatever reason -- is insane. It's a great way to ensure that CEOs and boards of large companies will learn they can be as irresponsible as they wish...

Saint Croix said...

It's really interesting to see how reporters spin an event.

Boos are a story! Who are the Democrats booing? Who do they hate?

You know if Republicans booed gay marriage, the media would flip out.

It's just remarkable to me how the Washington Post spins this into a non-event.

What an awesome rorschach test for media bias.

Lem said...

Planned Parenthood does far more birth control than abortions.

A bad business model.. if you ask me.

Dont they charge more for abortions?

Michael said...

Gas touching four dollars a gallon. One eighty at the start of this administration. Average income down four grand. 16 trillion in debt. Gigantic rise in food stamp usage. One million people suddenly on disability.

But, heh, their hearts are in the right place.

Bread and circus.

jrberg3 said...

So how much of the taxpayer bailout money found its way back into Obama's re-election fund and the democratic party pockets?

Jay said...

Jake Diamond said...


Wrong again!


Did you stamp your feet when you typed that little girl?

I mean, it is totally logical to pretend "breast exams" are specific to being pregnant because everyone knows that services to pregnant women doesn't mean what yo want it to mean.

bagoh20 said...

Just require comenters profile to include their real name, photo, and address. Then most of the bullshit would end. A lot of what goes on here would get some asses kicked face to face.

rasqual said...

Another yammering nut.

Since when is the rule of law -- bankruptcy law, and laws governing the fiduciary responsibility of CEOs and their boards -- second to a petite dictator beckoning grateful union workers to kiss his freakin' ring?

jrberg3 said...

When American medical device companies start to fail due to Obamacare's taxes are they going to get a government bail-out too?

UAW members in the crowd heard snickering while digging elbows into each other.

Good to see another fellow who is against political venom and is going to warn us about the Republicans who want to destroy everyone.

Out of mean-ness.

The economy is built to last so much that GM might need another bailout,

O Ritmo Segundo said...

When Althouse thinks of her blog I wonder if she ever visualizes Methadras, Jay and Cedarford.

A trifecta of ill-mannered ugliness, idiocy and paranoia.

rasqual said...

LMAO

The Labor Day holiday was actually "about" a paranoid Grover Cleveland signing legislation from a frightened Congress, following the horrendous Pullman strike. A federal sop tossed to the ARU. "Here! Now please be nice!" LOL

Jake Diamond said...

It's really amusing to watch Jay associate himself with the lunacy of serial liar Jean Schmidt.

Matthew Sablan said...

I'm so confused!

Obama kills the only thing that was working in the government...

NASA.

But pumped billions in to a boondoggle called GM.

GM is a disaster. Had you been stupid enough to invest in their ipo you would be lookin at a loss you will not recover. Had it gone BK it might have righted itself but it is toast.

Matthew Sablan said...

Ooh. Look. We're going to get ANOTHER parade of horribles for our two minute hate.

Jay said...

Presuming that 11% of the people walking into Planned Parenthood are pregnant, that would mean

332,278 abortions
7,021 prenatal clients
977 adoption referrals
82,236 breast exams on pregnant women

Or: 75% of services to pregnant women were abortions.

Wow. Those "fact checkers" are super duper to the cause.

Jake Diamond said...

It's also hilarious to see Jay insist that women aren't actually pregnant until a pregnancy test confirms it.

You can't make up that kind of goofiness.

Matthew Sablan said...

The truth is, instead of all of us losing our jobs, we were able to keep going for seven months or so instead of all of us losing everything.

It is really amusing you can't bother yourself to admit you read & believe actual propaganda.

You are the one changing words, and shouting "bullshit" as if it is an argument.

Of course you're an idiot, so we expected as much.

Synova said...

So these guys ran their companies into the ground and thought they shouldn't get fired?

Lem said...

BK is a mechanism to restoration.

Obama only postponed it.. creating, extending the pain.

Check this out Union people claiming to know "economics".

Matthew Sablan said...

Businesses that were not failing did not go to Bain. That some of them failed is because they were already failing.

jrberg3 said...

Romney will close down America and take all of our tax money to the Cayman Islands!

Jay said...

Jake Diamond said...
It's also hilarious to see Jay insist that women aren't actually pregnant until a pregnancy test confirms it.


Of course you can point to nowhere I said that.

This is just par for the course for you, dumbass.

Of course you'll also pretend a negative pregnancy test is a service to a pregnant woman if it helps you obfuscate while making an utter fool of yourself.

Synova said...

And *she* is saying that her company was strong, secure, and then Bain showed up and ruined everything?

Jay said...

Jake Diamond said...
It's also hilarious to see Jay insist that women aren't actually pregnant until a pregnancy test confirms it.


People who attack things I never said are big truth tellers, you know!

jrberg3 said...

I understand that some companies fail, that is, other people's companies..not mine!

Matthew Sablan said...

Romney's term as governor? Full employment (5% or so unemployment).

Obama's term? 8% unemployment.

Clearly, we should stick with the guy who created more jobs -- Barack Obama! Wait... what?
