Comments on: Washington Extra – START not yet finished Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 By: GetpIaning Fri, 24 Dec 2010 20:41:41 +0000 Yes, that’s your strategy, isn’t it? Always change the subject back to the talking points you want to hammer at, regardless of the real topic. It shows how empty your arguments are when it comes to real discussion.

Some are saying that this Congress was the most productive since the 1960’s, despite the relentless obstruction of the regressive conservatives. That does give us all cheer, as do the monthly checks from my many progressive sponsors.

The Democrats will change the Senate rules to put a stop to the secret holds and other juvenile tactics of your regressive caucus. Mitch McConnell says if we think he was an obstructionist over the last two years, wait ’till next year. Should be fun.

At least now your progressive friends can’t do any more damage…

For that we can be thankful this Christmas season.

My gift to you is to give you the last word…

Merry Christmas. I hope all the money you earned writing your diatribes gave you much happiness…

I guess you just create your own reality as you go along. You really are like a zombie, you just keep popping up to repeat your talking points.

George Soros says happy holidays!

By: TyC Fri, 24 Dec 2010 14:33:08 +0000 Sure thing…

All I know is that you disappeared for a month after you and “your” side suffered the worst election loss since the 1930’s. I am sure you had to regroup with your staff to come up with the spin you so eloquently write. After all, that’s what you are paid to do…

No matter how you spin it, you lost…get over it…

By: GetpIaning Wed, 22 Dec 2010 18:26:15 +0000 The majority is now 67 votes, and the majority vote for ratification should be over 70 votes. So it looks like the American people DO want this. The minority 28 senators opposed to the treaty, all of them conservative Republicans, are having a fit because their colleagues have the audacity to overlook John Kyl and Mitch McConnell’s incoherent and dishonest whining and bizarre habit of moving the goalposts after the White House agrees to their demands. The majority of senators are voting for this pending treaty because they are listening to the unanimous judgment of military and diplomatic leaders, instead of the bitter tirades of a few confused ultra-conservatives.
There is no way to spin this. You are wrong, and no amount of zombie talking points about “what the American people want” will change it.

By: TyC Wed, 22 Dec 2010 16:12:51 +0000 Yeah right…the progressive republicans are most certainly signing on to these last moment…before the time runs out of the progressive democrats who control the agenda….leave office after being thrown out by the American people.

The American people don’t want this and that is why these threw the bunch in power out…I mean literally threw them out.

It is up to people like you to spin this. You have been wrong for over two years and you are wrong now.

I can’t help but wonder who pays you for your drivel…

By: GetpIaning Tue, 21 Dec 2010 05:12:23 +0000 Mitch McConnell is muttering something about “trying to rush things right here before Christmas Eve,” which might make sense if the treaty hadn’t been sitting in the Senate since April.
The only organized groups on the planet hoping to see the Senate fail to ratify this treaty are Iranian officials, North Korean officials, hardliners in Russia, and most Republicans in the nation’s capital.
