Rubio is a conman and a traitor. A better liar than Romney and more dangerous.

Heidi & I are both tuned into watching body language, and Boehner offered plenty of fun as he kept subconsciously signing that he knows he is living a lie.

Rubio was the best! He started to talk and then he started to lie, and then subconsciously started his body language, indicating that he knew he was lying.

I suspect that are millions of Americans and Ameri---cons that will vote for Rubio, but he will likely lie his way out of contention in the Presidential Primaries.

with the republican party cleaving itself down the middle - half saying their message isn't strong enough and doubling down on pushing harder on that message and the other half realizing they better change their tune - it's going to take a pretty special human to sew them back together and put up any sort of fight in four years. Occam's razor - not gonna happen. Bye bye grover and teabaggers.

Oh! So that was it. I just thought he must be constipated again.

It really was a little interesting checking out the righties. Like Ryan for instance. they all seemed a little subdued.... maybe even a little awed? I didn't notice to many as#@&%es jumping up to yell "you lie!" this time anyway.

The Obama Message:
We can do great things if we work together!

The Republican Rebuttal
No we can't

the reality of what the Republicans want

We will fight you against everything good, we want the American Government to fail and go bankrupt

So we can prove to you once and for all, All Government is bad

Well F-You, we want to fix the Governement, and we want good things, like we had when we worked together

Marco Rubio Has Learned Nothing

Because his party has learned nothing.

OK, back up: this morning the papers and the web are full of nuance-sniffing, as people try to find omens in the SOTU and the GOP response. I don’t think I can add anything useful to all that. But there was one important point in Marco Rubio’s remarks that I don’t think has been highlighted. It’s true, as Andy Rosenthal says, that Rubio mainly reminded us that Republicans don’t like government or taxes; surprise! But he also reminded us that Republicans don’t like reality.

Here’s the passage:


This idea – that our problems were caused by a government that was too small – it’s just not true. In fact, a major cause of our recent downturn was a housing crisis created by reckless government policies.

OK, leave on one side the caricature of Obama, with the usual mirror-image fallacy (we want smaller government, therefore liberals just want bigger government, never mind what it does); there we go with the “Barney Frank did it” story. Deregulation, the explosive growth of virtually unregulated shadow banking, lax lending standards by loan originators who sold their loans off as soon as they were made, had nothing to do with it — it was all the Community Reinvestment Act, Fannie, and Freddie.

Look, this is one of the most thoroughly researched topics out there, and every piece of the government-did-it thesis has been refuted; see Mike Konczal for a summary. No, the CRA wasn’t responsible for the epidemic of bad lending; no, Fannie and Freddie didn’t cause the housing bubble; no, the “high-risk” loans of the GSEs weren’t remotely as risky as subprime.

This really isn’t about the GSEs, it’s about the BSEs — the Blame Someone Else crowd. Faced with overwhelming, catastrophic evidence that their faith in unregulated financial markets was wrong, they have responded by rewriting history to defend their prejudices.

This strikes me as a bigger deal than whether Rubio slurped his water; he and his party are now committed to the belief that their pre-crisis doctrine was perfect, that there are no lessons from the worst financial crisis in three generations except that we should have even less regulation. And given another shot at power, they’ll test that thesis by giving the bankers a chance to do it all over again.

to all you cali liberals who support obamacare,

if you've heard that obamacare will lead to a doctor shortage, relax, your liberal legislature is going to prove their liberalism by liberally redefining "doctor"

yep, when cali runs out of "doctors", your health care bureaucrat will just send you to your optometrist...or your pharmacist...or maybe even your vet (ok, that last was just a joke...for now)

Hey bookworm.

Seeing a vet would be a lot better than the options I currently have.

Seriously.
