    So what? 42 million people are on food stamps. Does that disqualify them from rejecting the regime that put them there, not wanting to stay on it forever, and wanting to change it? Are they stuck with this forever?



    Lisa Murkowski is a country club Republican. Good riddance.

    This seems like a non-starter to me. Do we no longer applaud Horatio Alger stories in this country?

    He's being strung up (by Murkowski, who votes for all this crap) about opposing bigger and bigger social safety nets.

    Do you think the 8 million new people on food stamps since Obama was immaculated consider that welcome event? Or would they rather have jobs?

    If, as Nancy Pelosi said, food stamps create jobs, where the hell are the jobs that 8 million new people on food stamps should have created?

    Ain't it a bit hypocritical of any Democrat, nevermind Obama, to lash out at a Republican for opposing social services when they reduced food stamp awards to fund the "New Teachers and Firefighters" initiative?

    Or how's about this?

    It is one thing if a GOP candidate runs on a platform of reducing waste and inefficiency in social programs and then votes to cut them. It's another if a Democrat runs on a platform of increasing everyone's entitlements and then plays "hide the pea" shell games to defeat those very expectations.
