It Takes Two, Baby
Like Paul Debbie Downer Ryan (R-WI)wasn't enough to rebut the President's State of the Union Address, rabid teabagger and agitator Michelle Batshit Bachmann (R-MN) put on her own dog and pony show, courtesy of CNN.
In fact, CNN hyped her up like she was an officially designated GOP spokewitch by running her screed right after Big Ears Ryan droned.
What, the GOP is in such disarray with the teabaggers on board that they have to have two mopes speaking?
I confess, I didn't listen to Bachmann's remarks because I prefer my fiction in book form. But I did hear Paul Ryan's speech, and apparently he thinks it's too late to do anything anyway because our best century is behind us.
The GOP has forgotten that Clinton left a surplus, Bush 43 spent all of it, then ran us to the brink of bankruptcy.
They call the bailouts a terrible error, but they haven't noticed that Wall Street is rallying, the economy is healing and banks are starting to pay back the money Obama loaned them.
I liked the president's speech, but he used some pretty slick terms regarding Social Security and Medicare and I hope that doesn't mean he intends to mess with either of them. If he does he's toast.
But compared to Debbie Downer and Batshit Bachmann, Barack Obama is a brilliant orator with dazzling rhetoric.
If Ryan and Bachmann are the best the GOP's got, we Democrats are in good shape.
