Liberal Shit 8-28-2011

"What it's about is building a car that is safe to drive and economical to keep that will get an honest to goodness 60 MPG and save families real money at the pump."

John Stossel asks, "why does the government have to force it?"

John, it makes sense but the problem is our market is held hostage by global oil price shocks that we can't control, that's why Detroit keeps getting blind sided by them, the last time that happened we almost lost GM and Chrysler and only because the American Taxpayers stepped up with an 80 Billion Dollar Loan, saved that from happening.

-Bob Deans (Natural Resources Defense Council)

Wow, we gave them a loan. The way I remember it, they held a gun to my head and told me to give them the money.

-President Obama

-Robert Gibbs

When did that time end Robert?

"I should point out, when you talk about the SNAP [Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program] program or the food stamp program, you have to recognize that it's also an economic stimulus. Every dollar of SNAP benefits generates $1.84 in the economy in terms of economic activity."

-Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack

"We don't put pressure on the president," Waters told the audience at Wayne County Community College. "Let me tell you why. We don't put pressure on the president because ya'll love the president. You love the president. You're very proud to have a black man -- first time in the history of the United States of America. If we go after the president too hard, you're going after us."

-Maxine Waters

“We now have a group of U.S. politicians seeking political purity, who seem to have much in common with the Taliban. They are Tea Party members, and because of blind adherence to smaller government, they seem intent on destroying what American political leaders have constructed in more than two centuries of hard, often painful, work. Like the Taliban, they see compromise as an unacceptable alternative.”

-Martin Frost

"It's very hard to get inflation during a depressed economy", "If we discovered there was an immanent alien invasion and we needed a massive military build up to counter that, we would be out of this slump in 18 months"

"The media has got to begin to not give equal time or equal balance"

"And I have to tell you, I say this to you politely. The media in America has a bigger responsibility than it's exercising today. The media has got to begin to not give equal time or equal balance to an absolutely absurd notion just because somebody asserts it or simply because somebody says something which everybody knows is not factual."

"It doesn't deserve the same credit as a legitimate idea about what you do. And the problem is everything is put into this tit-for-tat equal battle and America is losing any sense of what's real, of who's accountable, of who is not accountable, of who's real, who isn't, who's serious, who isn't?"

-John Kerry (This morning on "Morning Joe")

"I'm not sure whether the bitterly fought debt agreement will be enough to avoid a downgrade of the U.S. top-tier credit rating. "

"going to take a careful look" at whether Washington politicians have the will to act to bring deficits under control. "

-Timothy Geithner

"Republicans (Or TEA Party Republicans) got too much out of the debt ceiling deal, ...they acted like terrorists."

Joe Bidden (Allegedly)

"I rise to congratulate the TEA Party for starting a deal in their image and their image alone. The cuts will be deep, they will be lasting and they will weaken an already depressed economy. Whats clear is that the TEA Party is so illogically driven to kill government that they're willing to kill the private sector, kill jobs and kill growth in the process. What's more these cuts will be loaded on the backs of the seniors and the American middle class all while asking the wealthiest among us to risk nothing. The Rich will feel no pain and vulnerable will pay for their spoils."

- Maxine Water

"Obvious what is being done in the House is not compromise. It is being jammed through with all kinds of non-transparent dealings, people shuffling in and out of the Republican Leader's office. We're recognizing that the only compromise that there is, is mine,"

-Sen. Harry Reid

"When you put forward a position... it becomes charged politically and your chances of actually getting an agreement diminishes significantly. That's how it works. You know that's how it works. You don't? Well you should. Others do."

-Jay Carney (White House Press Secretary)

And my Favorite.

"We have engaged in fierce and passionate debates about the issues of the day, but from slavery to war, from civil liberties to questions of economic justice,"

-President Obama

Matt Damon is an idiot

“Yes, the wealthy are paying less than they paid at any time certainly in my lifetime and probably, probably, you know, in the last century.”

“ The really rich, guys like me, you know, or raise it to 50% after $5 million,”

“ Well, I didn’t go start a small business with my tax break,” Damon told a reporter. “And I don’t know anybody else who did. No, everybody’s socking their money away. That did not create any nobody went and started a business with their Bush tax cut. I don’t know who would believe something. That just defies common sense.”

- Matt Damon

Now why is Matt an idiot besides his typical liberal B.S.? I guess he forgot about Project Greenlight which he helped produce through a Production Company "LivePlanet" that he co-founded. The business enterprise started in 2000 and ended in 2007. I believe that qualifies as job creation, no? I guess Matt didn't count that towards any tax breaks he might have received.
