First thought: Overspending by $1.6 Trillion must be the new Normal
Second thought: Yes, we need to raise revenues and only a Failed Leader would even suggest raising taxes on a struggling economy. In the USA a growing economy raises revenues: cut taxes and spending, regulations and increase energy supply.
Well I'll be damned and here I thought it was for the good of the Nation. So this twit thinks the Repubs should just be exploding with joy that they even received an offer ya how about blow it out your ass hmmm.
Typical brain dead liberal rampant hypocrisy and ad homenim attack because they are too intellectually devoid to argue any other way. And the NY Times is speaking for moderation, LMAO
I was slow to pick that up...it must have been an attempt at comedy by Brooks. I didn't see it until just now
LOL, poor David Brooks. He had jumped the shark. who gives a shit what he has to say.
I suppose he is going to TELL US the Democrat party IS FRIGGEN NORMAL..
Not to worry though, if we had the DON as president, the solution would be simple, "you're all fired".
Who appointed David Brooks to define "what's normal." Hell, the jury thought Casey Anthony was normal. fuck normal.
Didn't 42 House Republilcans help to eliminate the Ethanol subsidy? That, in their spin, is a tax increase. Why do you suggest that raising taxes in a struggling economy would reflect poorly on the President?
Normal has always been overrated. I'd rather strive for exceptional.
Is your icon a Failed Leader?
That's cutting spending, Dear
No, per GOP babble, it is a tax increase. Unless of course, they voted for it, right?
If Ronald Reagan was offered 80% of what he asked for, would he take the deal?
FTR, gun to my head, if I had to make a bet right now, Romney is President in 13.
This entire thread is based on the incorrect premise that the Republican party was once normal.
oh so witty one. I ONCE thought many many moons ago the Democrat party was somewhat Normal, but that was then. Now they have been taken over by radical environmentalist, commies, perverts, labor Unions who give not one hoot bout the rest of the people WHO DON'T BELONG TO ONE..
The Democrat party has become a DANGER to our country and US PEOPLE. it's a shame more idiot people don't see that.
"Democrats trying to blame the Republicans for the shitty economy FAIL!"
Good article with some excellent points. A rational person would see that compromise involves 2 sides conceding something to meet a common point. A rational person would acknowledge that the fastest way to fix a financial issue is to BOTH cut spending and increase revenue.
But we aren't dealing with rational here. We are dealing with people who's sole goal is to get re-elected. Let's be honest, they have their own best interests at heart, not the nations.
It ceased to be a "normal" party starting with the election of Ronald Reagan. It's been getting worse since.
This would be true if we were talking about a business. The government is not a business. I put up a thread about a week ago to illustrate that government spending fosters business (of course no conservative was able to make that connection).
Government cutting spending during a time of financial distress is lunacy.
