  1. The Obama administration’s response that you quoted is, of course, pathetic. The only thing causing this recession (or unusually weak recovery) is *their* policies.

    I mean that in both past and present senses. As Senator, Obama, like his fellow Democrats, failed to support reforms proposed by Bush and by McCain (I believe) which would have reined in the reckless practices of Freddie and Fannie, and thus reined in the housing bubble. Senator Obama also supported the big-spending, Big Government, anti-growth and anti-employment policies so typical of Democrats and, sadly, somewhat typical of the Bush administration.

    Now as President, Obama has intensified those same policies: for example, burdening the economy with $1.5 trillion deficits instead of the (already unwise) $100-$400 billion deficits of Bush.

  2. On a semi-related note, Planned Parenthood shut down an abortion mill because of Chris Christie’s budget cuts.

  3. And the response from the Democrats to the Republican’s Pledge: “If we cut spending, we’ll become a Third World country”

    Comment by V the K — September 23, 2010 @ 7:45 am - September 23, 2010

  4. It also occurs to me that the Pledge shows firmly that the Tea Party is in control of the GOP, since it embraces the same extremist, radical, dangerous policies of fiscal responsibility, limited government, and accountability that the Tea Party advocates.

  6. Our government taking us massively into debt to “create jobs” that produce little, and therefore mostly shouldn’t exist. I believe that makes us a Third World country.

  11. Obama’s response: It’s Bush’s fault. I’m paraphrasing of course, but Obama essentially said this as a response to the Republicans Pledge to America.

    I don’t even listen to Obama anymore; he says too much of nothing when he’s talking.

  12. People like “Proud Liberal” above, can say what they will, but from what I’ve gleaned this is a pretty impressive document. Though it doesn’t have the concision and the bite of the contract of 1994… it says just enough to definitely help get Republicans elected in 40 days.

    The lame response from the Democrats was expected too, but if I were them, I’d be more concerned by the goings-on within their own party. The real question that’s begging to be asked of the left during these desperate times has to be, “Why are almost all democratic candidates retreating from just about every part of Mr Obama’s agenda?????? When’s the last time anyone’s heard a campaign speech by a democrat heralding the success of Obama care and the Stimulus ??????

  13. “Though it doesn’t have the concision and the bite of the contract of 1994″

    That could be intentional. They could be declaring their intent, but without tipping their hand. It’s like promising ‘Hope & Change’ without ever defining what ‘Hope & Change’ means.

  14. And just to remind Democrats, the government “surplus” usually touted by liberals as ‘proof of success’, occurred only after the now-famous Clinton speech;

    That’s the funny part. They compare Republicans to Hitler while supporting and endorsing Ahmadinejad, who has praised Hitler AND endorsed eradication of all Jews.

    Probably because Ahmadinejad wants what they also want — the extermination of those evil Jews. After all, that’s what Obama’s preacher, Jeremiah Wright, screamed about every Sunday for those twenty years that Barack Obama claimed he was in the pew every Sunday.

  20. Samll Government? I´m not impressed! I want to know what the goal is. How small do they want to make the government? My comment #27 (unchallenged) under the post Christine O´Donnell &Gays I stated that Newt Gingrich was a falure. My comment #14 (apparently passed overunder the pòst Does GOP need a new Contract with America, explains why. I referred to an op-ed article which appeared in the (May?) 1998 edition of Fortune Magazine by Doug Bandow a senior fellow of the Cato Institute. In it he states that domistic spending increased 34% over the previous decade, adjusted for inflation, He cites the reason for increased spending is that ¨The GOP majority has reneged on its promise to eliminate unnecessary and wasteful federal agencies and programs.¨ Only a few were cut. He At that time 342 federal programs devoted to economic develop,emnt survived as did 163 to job training and 131 to helping juveniles in various ways. Relic from the New Deal continue beyond their usefulness like the Rural Utility Service.

    The Pledge has a graph of the departments and the number of agencies within. Yet there is no mention of how many be consolidated or eliminated for duplicating services. That would ttell me that the pledge is for real and not campaign rhetoric. The one item that was in the Contract, which ,many failed to adhere, and lacking in the draft of the Pledge that I saw is term limits. Whether it is the lates Robert Byrd, Strom Thurmond, and the living Barney Franks, Barabara Boxer have been in the job too long. Cleaning House every eight yyears and the Senate every 12 years should reduce corruption, and certain provide a stream of fresh and innovative ideas.

  21. Small government?

    Comment by Roberto — September 23, 2010 @ 3:02 pm - September 23, 2010

  22. Roberto – You are correct about the smaller government and increase spending, etc., which is why Republicans were fired in 2006. They just might have stopped being in denial and aknowledged that fact this cycle (and then again, maybe not).
    Where I diverge in your honest opinion is the need for term limits. Living in a state that has term limits, the (once) golden state of California, I would say that we are in worse shape with term limits. This is because the individuals with knowledge of how the system runs and should operate are not those that can be voted out of office (our representatives), but rather the career staffers who go from one termed out pol to another, and I would argue that they have much more power, just because of their knowledge base. Also, we have term limits, they’re called elections. I hope that we term out ma’am, that my mom terms out Reid, etc, come election day.

  28. While I think the tide is turning for a great run in November, I am VERY concerned that we’ll get punked again by the GOP once the new crop end up in Washington. It’s just too tempting to “buy” votes from certain constituencies to keep an elected post.

    How many of the new House reps or senators will be willing to vote for a base closure in THEIR OWN STATE if a trustworthy military analysis deems such a closure in the best interest of the armed services and the country as a whole? Or to vote against a bloated entitlement when dozens of would-be “victims” protest their office on Capitol Hill?

    Smaller government doesn’t mean merely reducing the “rate of growth”. Smaller government means SMALLER–as in CUTS. Not only will this new crop need iron-strong convictions, each one will have to be a “Reagan” as well, constantly re-educating and assuring a fickle class-warfare-susceptible society that less government is the best prescription for a robust economy and for the preservation of individual liberties.

    The first two pages of “Pledge” are about the most quintessentially “American” excerpt I have read in a long time. The fact that it finds so much opposition for its declarations of what I would consider foundational and essential concepts of American political theory is disheartening–and demonstrates how far we have yet to go to counteract the decline of intelligent discourse and the pervasive influence of socialism.

  29. HCN

    I was one of those who voted for term limits. When I was a member of the LARCCC, the A.D. chairman said, now we have to get rid of term limits. His response to my defense of term limits was that it was merely a ruse to get rid of Willie Brown. I guess that is why so many of the signers of the Contract reneged on that promise as well as reduced spending. Something else in the draft of the Pledge that I didn´t see and would like to, a moritorium on, or better yet, an end to earmarks. JC Watts was the earmark leader from the Contract group.

  31. Responding to “1.” – the weak recovery is due to massive job exports that are due to deregulation. Other than lumber & agricultural subsidies, “America First” policies are now a distant memory – the blame for deregulation falls on Reagan, Clinton & GW Bush, not on Obama. The impact of Freddie & Fanny was dwarfed by that of the catastrophic meltdown of international institutions like AIG, FBA & Lehman Brothers – Goldman Sachs has already admitted that it knew back around 2006 just how bad the real situation was – in fact they bet heavily on the impending collapse & have since made huge profits from same.

    The boilerplate about marriage is there explicitly to placate the Religious Right, who are not exactly delighted that 6 years of total Republican control left prayer out of schools, Roe v. Wade intact & led to the first legal gay marriages in the US. “Honoring traditional marriage” does indeed mean DIShonoring same-sex marriage to the Religious Right, & their party of choice is hardly a secret. To claim otherwise is laughable.

    As for repealing HCR, even the GOP itself admits that this is a dead issue. The benefits are simply too manifold & the political cost of returning to the bad old days of lifetime limits, recission & pre-existing conditions is too dire – as is the logistical nightmare of implementing repeal … but they know nobody is going to hold them to this promise, because they’re not going to be in a position to uphold it any time soon. Even in the unlikely case of majorities in both Houses, Obama will veto any such attempt, & the wishful thinking of Obama as a one-term POTUS is comical: with their lack of either credible candidates or solid policies, 2012 looks to be an absolute bloodbath for the GOP compared to 2008.

    PROTIP: don’t focus on what people say they’ll do, focus on their actual behavior. Regardless of what it says to get elected, the GOP has neither reduced the size of government nor practiced fiscal conservatism for at least 30 years – every time they get control of the Executive Branch, government & deficits both balloon to gargantuan proportions. Real conservativism creates surpluses, not massive deficits: Clinton is the only successful fiscal conservative America has had in the White House in my lifetime. Obama’s revenue-neutral/revenue-positive policies would’ve likely produced another, if not for the ongoing economic disaster & more than $11 trillion shortfall that he faced on his first day in office.

    Comment by jim — September 23, 2010 @ 10:59 pm - September 23, 2010

  32. Jim,

    Clinton was a fiscal conservative only because a Republican Congress held his feet to the fire. Seven years later they went helter skelter and GW didn´t have a veto pen in his pocket and the Congress became a rubber stamp for his spending bills and increasing the size of government as we know now it.

  33. Responding to “1.” – the weak recovery is due to massive job exports that are due to deregulation.

    Don’t you love it when these children string together unrelated buzzwords and think they’re making sense?

    Links, please. Evidence. This is a blog for grown-ups; you can’t just repeat Obama Party talking points and think anyone believes them. Can you do that, little boy?

    The impact of Freddie & Fanny was dwarfed by that of the catastrophic meltdown of international institutions like AIG, FBA & Lehman Brothers

    Again, this only works for Obama Party children. Perhaps we should acquaint you with facts instead of your amusingly-childish Obama talking points.

    Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are so big — they own or guarantee roughly half of the nation’s $12 trillion mortgage market — that the thought that they might falter once seemed unimaginable. But now a trickle of worries about the companies, which has been slowly building for years, has suddenly become a torrent.

    Virtually every home mortgage lender, from giants like Citigroup to the smallest local banks, relies on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to grease the wheels of the mortgage market. Virtually every Wall Street bank does business with them. And investors around the world own $5.2 trillion of the debt securities backed by the companies.

    So this little child is telling us that these two organizations worth six TRILLION dollars and backing over five TRILLION dollars are irrelevant and that companies a fraction of their size who are dependent upon these two organizations are to blame for everything.

    I mean, we all know that children cannot tell the difference between a billion and a trillion, but really, this goes beyond simple immature intellect.

    And perhaps, child, you can tell us for what “FBA” stands? Can you? Are you able to pronounce words that big? Or was it just another thing that came off your talking points that you’re repeating because you think it makes you sound like a big boy?

    Seriously. The lack of intellect among Obama supporters and puppets like this “jim” is almost terrifying. No wonder they need laws guaranteeing them jobs based on their sexual orientation — no individual this infantile would last in the simplest job for more than a week.

    Yeah, it has nothing to do with the USA having the second highest corporate tax rate in the world, the massive new environmental and labor regulations heaped on businesses by social-democrats hostile to business, a Federal Government that is stacking the regulatory bureaucracies with aggressively anti-business appointees, or a massive debt-and-entitlement bomb the Democrats are building.

    No, the weak employment picture has nothing to do with the current administration’s policies at all.

  35. Responding to “1.” – the weak recovery is due to massive job exports that are due to deregulation.

    Funny that… As an employee of a company that did outsourcing in the late 90′s, it was because of Government regulation in a compeditive Marketplace. We estimate we ‘Outsourced’ roughly 10% of our workload, so the remaining 90% could still be employed here, instead of go out of business. In the 2000′s we had a massive uptick in business and growth, because people were hiring. We even have a ‘processed in the US’ option on our plans now. Strangely, since 2008, we’ve now gone through 4 cycles of lay offs and staff reductions, not including attrition. Wow… what happened in 2007?

    Plus, let’s not forget, it’s the Watermellons in the ‘Green’ movement who are sending our jobs to China. (Lightbulbs anyone?)

  39. If elected, Republicans promise to privatize Social Security

    And allow people to save and use the enormous amount of money taken out of each paycheck for their own purposes, instead of the government wasting it on the lazy and welfare-addicted

    cut back Medicare

    Again, allowing people to keep the money they make and make their own plans for retirement medical coverage

    oppose more jobs programs

    Which spend $111 million to “create” 55 jobs

    raise costs for student loans

    so that people who are going to waste every bit of it and default like Proud Liberal think twice about borrowing and consider sounder financial alternatives, rather than forcing taxpayers to pay for their defaults

    cut protections for credit card holders so banks can raise your rates

    And so that banks can actually charge deadbeats like Proud Liberal and those who refuse to pay their bills the actual cost of extending them credit, instead of forcing those who work and save and don’t to pay the additional cost

    attack consumer protections for mortgage holders

    So that banks can actually charge deadbeats like Proud Liberal and those who refuse to pay their bills the actual cost of extending them credit, instead of forcing those who work and save and don’t to pay the additional cost

    defend Wall Street bonuses for bailed-out banks

    which are perfectly OK when they’re corrupt and illegal and benefit black and gay Obama Party members

    oppose efforts to cut back outsourcing of U.S. jobs

    so that hardworking Americans are not forced to subsidize drunk, stoned Obama Party union members like ProudLiberal from their own paychecks and in the price they pay for goods

    support more tax cuts for the most wealthy

    Because their spending is a key economic driver

    use taxpayer money to hire partisan Republican Congressional staff to turn the House of Representatives into a subpoena-churning partisan political operation

    Which the Obama Party already did.

    In developing independent investigative capacity, Republicans would pursue a model practiced by the panel’s outgoing chairman, Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., when he served as ranking member from 2001 to 2006. Waxman, who is leaving the panel to become Energy and Commerce chairman next month, used a highly regarded investigative staff to highlight Bush administration failures.

    and bring their K Street project to seek special interest campaign money, this time in secret

    Which is hilarious, given how dependent the Obama Party is on special interest money and unwilling to disclose it.

    So what we see here is that the only people who have anything to fear are welfare-dependent deadbeats who will lose their ability to steal from hardworking Americans to pay for their drug and alcohol habits and prop up their corrupt Obama Party thug politicians.

    Which would nicely describe the Obama Party base like “Proud Liberal” — lying, racist, welfare-dependent deadbeats.

  41. Loud Priberal:

    What have the Obamunists done about social security?

    How about all the cut backs Obamacare has dropped on Medicare? When will the Obamunists fix that mess?

    Which jobs programs did the Obamunists start? Oh, I know, government employment in exchange for votes.

    Credit card protections under the Obamunists are terrific. Why not just get the banks out of the picture and let the government handle credit cards directly with some of that snazzy government insurance for deadbeats who default?

    Mortgage holders are doing great under the government system, unless they have a job and are upsidedown because of the Frank-Dodd Freddie and Fannie fiasco. Why not just take the houses from the working stiffs and transfer them to the people who want a house but don’t have the patience, skill or work ethic to earn one?

    What is it with you guys and your Wall Street contributors? Where do all the Democrat fat cats get their money? Wall Street. These guys are your guys and you pretend to hate them. Let’s try doing college endowment funds, insurance, savings and pensions without banks and Wall Street. Suggestions, big guy?

    You Obamunists slam business and demand higher wages and then scream when they go off shore. No doubt about it, a little bit of vinegar makes the socialism more attractive. You hate jobs flipping burgers, you crave illegal aliens to pick your crops instead of machinery and you demand unions build your cars in bankrupt factories and then you cry about out-sourcing. What a concept.

    I see you really fear the Republican payback for Leahy and Waxman. Well, we will be too busy cleaning up debris from your graft and bribe system to waste time on dressing your turds up to look like circus clowns.

    K Street and secrecy. This from the party hack of the most ethical Congress ever that specialized in transparency.

    Good gosh, child, you fear we will give you a dose of what you specialize in. You lie with dogs and you have fleas. We will just fumigate you and toss a bone now and then. Now, go chase an ambulance.

  42. As Paul Krugman notes, the Republican Pledge claims that “everything must be cut, in ways not specified – ‘except for common-sense exceptions for seniors, veterans, and our troops.’ In other words, Social Security, Medicare and the defense budget are off-limits. [Krugman should have also mentioned service to the existing debt, which is one of the biggest single items in the federal budget today, and absolutely cannot be touched.] So what’s left? Howard Gleckman of the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center has done the math. As he points out, the only way to balance the budget by 2020, while simultaneously (a) making the Bush tax cuts permanent and (b) protecting all the programs Republicans say they won’t cut, is to completely abolish the rest of the federal government: ‘No more national parks, no more Small Business Administration loans, no more export subsidies, no more N.I.H. No more Medicaid (one-third of its budget pays for long-term care for our parents and others with disabilities). No more child health or child nutrition programs. No more highway construction. No more homeland security. Oh, and no more Congress.’”

  43. Loud Driveler:

    Paul Krugman? Do you have any idea of what his batting average is? Do you suppose that is why he can’t hold a high paying job where economic analysis counts?

    Krugman aside, what is it with you progressives that you only need the smoke and mirrors of “hope” and “change” and some styrofoam columns to send you into a rapture, but when the Republicans lay out their pledge, you suddenly need a force feeding of specifics?

    Read what you quote and wrote and answer me this: After Obama taxes the wealth out of those earning over $75,000 a year, how will his scheme balance the budget ….. ever? Now add the other big ticket programs your team is salivating over.

    Funny how you want to hold the feet of conservatives to the fire of fiscal discipline while the Obamunists print debt faster than the presses can spin.

    I hope you strapped a headlamp on, because you might as well do a self conducted colonoscopy while you are in the rectal-cranial inversion mode.

    Democrats who are 100% safe seat incumbents are suddenly worried. The public is really fickle. You guys had best have a coup and set up your dictatorship pronto, because the villagers are coming after you with pitchforks and torches. You are the masters of demagoguery so why can’t you ACORN your people into shutting down the Republicans? Maybe you could get Krugman to speak to them.

  44. Krugman has already proven that he will completely contradict himself and claim the exact opposite of what he did previously depending on political affiliation.

    But that is typical for liberals. Liberals, lacking any sense of intelligence or principle, simply think that everything reverses and spins in the same way that they do.
