In perusing the headlines at HP, I stumbled upon a very interesting article by Congressman Eric Massa of New York. Apparently, the most recent personal attack on President Obama by a certain former vice-president has finally provoked a strong response from a Democrat. In the article, he also cites Senator Jim DeMint for his obstruction in the confirmation process for the head of the TSA.

“Bring It On” Dick Cheney and Jim DeMint

It is time, as Rep. Massa states, for Dick Cheney to “put up or shut up”. His critique is no longer valid, nor is it sought by anyone who recognizes the horrible mess left to our new president by Cheney and his cronies. Mr. Cheney no longer has any credibility on national security or any other subject for that matter.

Rep. Massa writes:

Vice President Cheney, Senator DeMint, it’s time for both of you to be held accountable for your failures and your poor decisions.

I challenge both of you to stand in the light of day and debate your record with me. Your partisan attacks are nothing but empty rhetoric and it’s time to declare that we can no longer stand by while you attack our President for working to protect our Nation and for having an honest dialog about what went wrong.

Let’s make a New Year’s Resolution to call out hypocrisy in 2010. Stand against it and any time that former Vice President Dick Cheney opens his hypocritical mouth to continue uttering blather, he needs to be challenged in a straight forward factual manner that will demonstrate the emptiness of his rhetoric.

Let us hope that the good Congressman has stoked the fire, that he has inspired others to speak out loudly. It is time for some good old-fashioned pushback! It is time to control the message! It is time to call out the hypocrisy!

It’s New Year’s now in the UK. Have a good one. I’d rather not fuck Dick Cheney … I’d rather just use him for target practice.

Here’s a bit of trivia: If everyone thinks Mr. Frampton was a nobody of the 70s….

Oh, …and another nobody named little Stevie Wonder is playing the keyboards on this one as well….LMAO~

Another dry one heard from. Here’s lookin’ at you, kid.

Imagine my surprise. I got old. I retired. Instead of taking up birding and knitting, I took up politics. Cross between a soap opera and a horror movie.

May countless blessings rain upon Franken, Grayson and Massa, upon our President (although I am rather disappointed), and upon all the people I am getting to know here at Planet. And on me, too, please and thank you.

Why does the media continue to listen to Cheney and Rove??? In other phases of life, most people do not continue to listen or hold in regard anyone who has REPEATEDLY been discreted.

It appears that hypocrisy does not affect these people. What we need is good, old fashion shame – or JAIL TIME!!!

I was perusing Hp a little while ago and the Main is all about Hairyanna and her fellow bots telling everyone to go to community banks and the sheeple are acting like this is the idea of the century. I tried to get in a few posts but any that were critical of Ms A were blocked, figures. So I just used the term “they” to critize the post.

How long have others been talking about going to smaller banks and credit unions? She is about a 2 years late on the uptake.

The hubris coming from her these days is incredible.

escribacat
Member

People have been saying that in the HP comments sections for months and months.

Marion

Apparently, she came up with this wonderful idea while out at dinner with two well-known names, who probably told her what common sense it made. It’s not rocket science and anyone would suss it. Just goes to show how removed from the scheme of things she is, for ordinary people. That there are people there who do reasonable impressions of nodding car dogs means that there are as many ‘dittos’ on the Left as on the Right. Fame WHORE.

I so agree about the hubris – every time she farts, it makes headline news there; but on her latest BRAG, about telling Joe Scarborough that people were angry with Obama because he preferred Wall Street to Main Street, she’s taking some serious flak in the comments. One commentator said that, like Sarah Palin, he wished they’d both go away. HA!

I just have trouble fathoming why the likes of MSNBC and George Stephanopolous, amongst others, give her so much time. She is such an intellectual lightweight. The British saw her shallowness from the very beginning, which is why she could never make it seriously in the media in the UK.

OH, how I would LOVE to see her have a mighty fall onto her feta-cheesed ass in 2010. I’m a bitch, me.

Many of us in her NON blog-o-sphere have been advocating this for YEARS. My first brush with community banking came decades ago with the South Shore Bank in Chicago (now just Shorebank I believe) that made all its loans in poorer neighborhoods and to small, largely minority owned businesses as well as to homeowners. We’ve known the benefits of community banking and credit unions. Right after “the fall” last year, I was able to secure a 5-year CD at 5% per year when all banks offered was just over prime. (That has changed, but the credit union is still ahead of commercial banks!) So she’s now taking credit (‘scuse the pun) for information the community banking world has known forever. She is too late to the party, is Ms. A. What a fraud.

And she leaves out the banks and lenders to the Muslim-American population that offer interest-free (“riba” free) home loans. They were recommended by ME to the community banking world because they do the only HONEST rent to own, interest free homeowner program in America. Very cool people. Very stable banking program (Bank of Whittier in CA does these, among others.) Let’s see if she will suggest as I have that the entire world could emulate MUSLIMS. HAH! Believe she will do that when I see it!

Dang, I went there, scrolled down and saw a photo of President Obama shining Sarah Palin’s shoes and I hot footed it right on out of there.
Media Matters needs to cover HuffPo the way they do Focks and Fiends. I have emailed them about my concerns, I think I may keep up with that. The Greek Whoracle has deceptively acquired too much influence.

Slightly O/T – but, nontheless:

Arianna H., the Queen of Table Waters, is killing her own New Year’s edition of the NuffingtonToast by forcing her queen’s own, MASSIVELY off-topic blog-post as main thread upon her devoted followers.

How self-indulged can one positively be, to press such a nonsensical thread upon her readers, instead of giving them a free New-Year-thread and let them blast away unmoderated by the tens of thousands?

Finally, the queen has positively, completely and permanently lost ground contact for good.

Awaiting her long-overdue space-launch in a blaze of glowing hot air in ten, niner, eight, seven, six…

I agree with Nellie’s comment,I gave a lot of thought to Rachel Maddow last night. She is one of the few on cable that is doing investigative reporting and not just rehashing AP headline stories.
She does an excellent job, but then you’ve got DeMint on GMA or the Early Show talking shit about President Obama and the TSA not having a director, but not one mention that it’s because he’s holding up the nomination on false pretenses.
So if the “MSM” isn’t going to hold anyone accountable, how does the message that Rachel is addressing, reach the people that really need to hear it?
I watched a (very boring) movie last night about Murrow and the McCarthy era, it took a strong and determined media presence to take him out. Getting out in front of the propaganda is one of the more difficult tasks we are facing in this coming year.
Democrats in leadership positions need to get a voice. Where’s Grayson when you need him?

Khirad

I about lost it when I saw that and shouted at the screen on that point about holding him up on nominations in he first place.

What I would looooooove, is for him to do recess appointments to see them whine about it. Then again, I don’t want him to be like Bush out of spite, I just thought it was a humorous thought.
