Ironic that democrats roundly blistered Anne Romney isn’t it? It’s also pretty clear that Ms. Akbar didn’t build this horse ranch by herself…
WASHINGTON (AP) — Pursed lips. Frosty glares. Polite demurrals. Icy silence. Women in politics are grappling with the distinctly unfunny choice of restraining themselves or letting rip what they really think about Rep. Anthony Weiner’s X-rated online conduct and whether he belongs in Congress. They’ll be vexed by the question awhile longer because the 46-year-old Democrat from New York City told the New York Post on Thursday he won’t resign.
The scandal presents a maddening choice for these female leaders, none shy, between speaking out or keeping quiet about behavior that, at best, is disrespectful of women. “You’re right, I don’t like” questions about Weiner, Sen. Dianne Feinstein said with a smile.
Feinstein, D-Calif., was elected in 1992, known as “the Year of the Woman.” She said she’s shocked and saddened by the matter, which grew worse as the week went on, and she wished she could say something lighthearted about it. Does she think Weiner should resign? “I’m not getting into that,” she demurred.
It was an apt illustration of the bind in which female lawmakers, particularly Democrats, find themselves as Weiner’s tawdry saga unfolds. They represent a party trying to position itself as the best choice for women in the lead-up to the 2012 congressional and presidential elections, yet the most senior among them have not called outright for Weiner’s resignation. Most, in fact, have said nothing publicly at all. LINK
And that ladies and gentlemen is what you call a gutless, cowardly, female politician. Each and every one of them knows how disgusting and amoral Anthony Weiner is. Each and every one of these so-called “feminists” know how they really feel about Weiner. But they are so wedded to their anti-family, anti-morality platforms that when there is a rat in their very own wood pile they have NO CHOICE but to ignore it. They can’t bring themselves to stand up and say “Yes Anthony Weiner is a disgusting, sleazy, creepy little man who has brought great shame and ill repute on himself, the office he holds and the Congress of the United States of America and he should RESIGN”. Except that in sex scandal after sex scandal democrats rally around these guys and defend the indefensible. Yet they claim to support marriage… EXCUSE ME?
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — New York Congressman Anthony Weiner refused on Wednesday to deny that he’s the one in the lewd photo sent to a college student. It’s the $64,000 question in the so-called “Weinergate” Twitter scandal. “Was that a picture of you?” CBS 2’s Marcia Kramer asked the six-term Democrat. “The picture” in question is the one of a man’s bulging underwear that was sent from the congressman’s Twitter account to a pretty coed. Weiner wouldn’t say Wednesday with certainty whether it was him or wasn’t him. LINK
Couldn’t happen to a bigger tool… SNARK! Anthony Weiner is an arrogant, foul mouthed little bully. He’s also a creepy guy who sends out all sorts of e-mail and twitter messages to young women although he is recently married. I actually thought he was gay! Surprise! Safe to say this couldn’t happen to a nicer guy…snark again! Like the even creepier Elliot Spitzer he’s a democrat who just can’t seem to be honest with the taxpayers or in this case his own family. As a US politician he’s a embarrassment. As a person he’s lacking in fundamental morals.
It’s pretty clear he sent this picture otherwise he would go screaming to the police and have whoever is responsible for allegedly HACKING HIS ACCOUNT arrested. I know that if my name was allegedly smeared like this I’d be looking for payback. Now that he’s caught his first reaction is… surprise- to LIE! Typical scumbag politician. I wonder what else he’s been up to? Weiner is a slimy disgrace and should resign before this gets any more creepy. Somewhere Dominique Strauss-Kahn is smirking…
PORTLAND, Ore. — An Oregon congressman facing calls for his resignation from some of the state’s largest newspapers said the mental health condition from which he suffers doesn’t prevent him from doing his job. U.S. Rep. David Wu told KGW-TV in an interview aired Saturday that he won’t specify his mental health issue. LINK
Oh yeah, this is PRICELESS! Of course we know insanity is no impediment to being a liberal Democrat congressman. Hell it’s almost a pre-requisite! Insanity hasn’t slowed Nancy Pelosi down one second. Why would Wu let it get in between himself and his Tigger jammies? We are in DEEP TROUBLE FOLKS!
Somewhere, Christine O’Donnell is laughing.
Wisconsin Republicans on Sunday upped the pressure on Democrats who fled to Illinois to return home and vote on an anti-union bill, with the governor calling them obstructionists and a GOP lawmaker threatening to convene without them.
Gov. Scott Walker said the 14 minority Democrats who left Madison on Thursday were failing to do their jobs by “hiding out” in another state. And Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald said his chamber would meet Tuesday to act on non-spending bills and confirm some of the governor’s appointees even if the Democrats don’t show up — a scenario that should outrage their constituents. LINK
All I want to say is that when the Democrats held the power advantage in Congress over the last two years, they did as they pleased. They shoved Obamacare down the throats of the Republicans and our country and laughed while they were doing it. Now that these Wisconsin Democrats see that they can’t stop the legislative process LEGALLY and win their point by debate what do they do? THEY FLEE THE STATE LIKE THE COWARDS THEY ARE. Imagine if the House Republicans did that to President Obama? Holy HELL!
These coward lawmakers are being PAID by the taxpayers to do a job and they refuse because they can’t get their way. No maybe we can understand why we are in such financial disarray! Like these idiot teachers they should be FIRED! I’d send the State Police to track them down and drag them back. Our Democracy and the rule of law is more important than these selfish children.
Mayor Squidward uses cops as props for his anti-public safety agenda. Here he specifically outlines his plan to raise taxes and “REFORM” pensions yet again for cops and firefighters. This is indicative of big-city politicians who spend money on pet, liberal social projects that are designed to do nothing but get them re-elected, while cutting essential services, the services needed to keep a big city running safely and smoothly.
Nutter did in fact close seven fire companies permanently, and browns out three more every shift city-wide. That’s TEN fire companies put out of service. Yet magically we are still supposed to have enough manpower to send guys to Camden since they laid off so many of their firefighters. Like most Democrat-controlled big cities, Camden is bankrupt too. In true liberal style they want us to bail them out. That’s insane.
Tell me again about Chris Christie…
CAMDEN, N.J. – February 9, 2011 (WPVI) — Camden’s city council has to again start trying to figure out how to balance the city budget after rejecting a plan Tuesday that could have brought back about 60 laid-off police and firefighters but also would have raised property taxes 23 percent.
The city outside Philadelphia is among the nation’s poorest and most crime-ridden. It’s been in a fiscal crisis for decades, but it’s deepened as tax revenue has declined and the state has cut its aid.
Last month, the city laid off nearly 400 city employees, about one-fourth of all its workers. The cuts were deepest in the police department, which lost nearly half its officers, and the fire department, which lost one-third of its firefighters.
The 23 percent property tax increase that Mayor Dana Redd proposed would have been the first in the city in nearly a decade. The cost would have been about $160 per year for the average homeowner.
That was not an easy sell in a place where residents are fuming about how they’re already getting less for what they pay. There’s also upset over the city’s first property value reassessments in 18 years, which will result in higher taxes for some homeowners – and lower bills for others. LINK
Camden, New Jersey is a failed city. It’s been run exclusively by Democrats for as long as anyone around these parts can remember. Recently they decimated their police and fire departments because they have mismanaged their budget forever. Public safety, like national defense, is a frequent targets of cutbacks for liberal administrations. Democrats have been systematically destroying these departments (usually the most effective) across the country while at the same time propping up the failed, social welfare agencies they support. Areas like public housing and all manner of social services that are usually black holes of taxpayer dollars are getting big funding while the public safety infrastructure, much like the municipal infrastructure gets cut to the bone. Here in Philly for example, the Housing Authority (PHA) for example is in the middle of an enormous corruption scandal that will cost taxpayers millions. It’s par for the course.
Camden’s Mayor proposed tax increases (almost non-existent in Camden in half a generation) to help restore some of the desperately needed public safety personnel. But alas Camden residents in keeping with their “something for nothing” mentality have decided they don’t want to pay for them. They would much rather HAVE PHILLY FIREFIGHTERS RISK THEIR LIVES putting out Camden’s fires… YOU GUESSED IT… FOR FREE! While we are off fighting fires in Camden, the taxpayers of Philly will be minus the fire protection they pay for. Keep in mind Philly residents already pay 2% more in sales tax than the rest of Pennsylvania in part to pay for the services needed to keep this city running as safely as possible (no small task).
Yet come election day they will be re-electing Democrats in Camden, you can bet on it. Good luck with that, Camden.
Good to see Screamin’ Howie has a handle on the libtard talking points:
Appearing on “Fox News Sunday,” Dean, who’s also a former Democratic national chairman and hero of liberals, asserted Fox News failed to vet video footage of a speech misleadingly excerpted to make it appear that Sherrod was boasting of using her post as an Agriculture Department official to discriminate against a white farmer.
“I don’t think Newt Gingrich is a racist, and I don’t think you’re a racist,” Dean told Fox News host Chris Wallace, “but Fox News did something that was absolutely racist. They took a – they had an obligation to find out what was really in the clip. They had been pushing a theme of black racism with this phony Black Panther crap and this business and this Sotomayor and all this other stuff.”
The “phony Black Panther crap?” Is Howard Dean smoking crack – crack that he must have received from the Black Panthers? The Black panther case – which happened here in Philly, by the way – was caught on tape. Watch the video and tell me that race did not play a role.
Nothing to see here. Just another hypocritical Democrat.
John Kerry, who fights on behalf of the little people on whose backs the rich get richer by avoiding taxes most Americans can’t afford to dodge, is seeing to it that the little people aren’t burdened by an extra $500k in his home state’s tax coffers:
Sen. John Kerry, who has repeatedly voted to raise taxes while in Congress, dodged a whopping six-figure state tax bill on his new multimillion-dollar yacht by mooring her in Newport, R.I.
Isabel – Kerry’s luxe, 76-foot New Zealand-built Friendship sloop with an Edwardian-style, glossy varnished teak interior, two VIP main cabins and a pilothouse fitted with a wet bar and cold wine storage – was designed by Rhode Island boat designer Ted Fontaine. But instead of berthing the vessel in Nantucket, where the senator summers with the missus, Teresa Heinz, Isabel’s hailing port is listed as “Newport” on her stern.
Could the reason be that the Ocean State repealed its Boat Sales and Use Tax back in 1993, making the tiny state to the south a haven – like the Cayman Islands, Bermuda and Nassau – for tax-skirting luxury yacht owners?
Cash-strapped Massachusetts still collects a 6.25 percent sales tax and an annual excise tax on yachts. Sources say Isabel sold for something in the neighborhood of $7 million, meaning Kerry saved approximately $437,500 in sales tax and an annual excise tax of about $70,000.
Imagine, this idiot was almost elected president.
The new $28 billion state budget was part of a deal that would boost state borrowing by as much as $600 million to pay for construction projects such as new public buildings to be named after U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter and late U.S. Rep. John Murtha. About half of the projects it will finance are being hand-picked by Gov. Ed Rendell. Legislators expect to assemble a second list in the coming months that also must be authorized by legislation before they can receive money. Rendell is earmarking $10 million for the Arlen Specter Library at Philadelphia University and another $10 million for the John P. Murtha Center for Public Policy at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown. LINK
That’s right folks, this bankrupcy brought to you courtesy of the Democrat party. As our city and state struggle with the delivery of basic services, the services our taxes are supposed to fund, the politicians in Harrisburg, most notably the Democrats, still manage to find the money to waste on their pet projects.
Here in Philadelphia the emergency services are struggling with crushing workloads, especially EMS. The fire department is stretched to the breaking point on a daily basis. Instead of a bullshit library for the creep Arlen Specter we could use about thirty more ambulances in Philly. How’s that for ignorance based on arrogance? Ed Rendell has been a zero as a politician his entire career. He will not be missed in this state by the average taxpayer.
As a conservative and a Republican I had enormous disagreement with my party over their undisciplined spending during the Bush years. Oh how I long for those heady days of Republican largesse. These people make that Congress look down right stingy. As my previous post pointed out another example of unchecked waste the hits keep coming. These politicians are lying to us constantly and setting us up for more tax increases to fund their unrestricted giveaway programs.
There is plenty of money coming in to our government. It’s a simple matter of how it’s being spent. They can find money for “Low income” computer centers while closing libraries. Does everyone realize that libraries already have computers to serve the “poor”? The administration of American government is approaching the threshold of criminal malfeasance. I for one have had enough.
