Say It Again, Joe

Filed under: Government,Obama — DRJ @ 3:09 pm

[Guest post by DRJ]

VP Joe Biden admitted the Stimulus information provided by the government is not 100% accurate:

Biden: “Making this amount of information available to the public, in this level of detail, this quickly, is quite simply something that has never happened before in the federal government. *** And so, folks, this is an unprecedented undertaking … and we know, we know that it’s not 100% accurate. This has never been attempted before, and that further updates and corrections are going to be needed. But we are pleased, we’re pleased to make this information available publicly and so promptly …”

Once again, we learn the government can’t provide accurate information about the money it spends. But, hey, it’s fast!

So tell me again how the government is going to provide health care for Americans.

  1. In other news, Obama announced today that he has created or saved 15% of his administration’s credibility since taking office.

  5. DRJ asked, “So tell me again how the government is going to provide health care for Americans.”

    Easy, the tax and spend party is going to save lots of money by cutting half a trillion dollars out of Medicare. Then, they’re going to tax every medical device known to man, like prescription drugs and wheelchairs, then they’re going to withhold treatment so old people will die more quickly, that should about do it.

  6. They better keep funding the Trauma Care facilities…
    Where else will they be treated when the masses rise up and smite them mightily, from crown to arse.

  7. The metrics they are using to count a job as created or saved are pretty remarkable. Very few of the articles I have seen note that the vast majority of the jobs created or saved are public sector, and the level of govt used “stimulus” dollars to provide a short term patch for long term budget problems.

  10. Joe Biden is like having a mole in the Obama administration. He can’t shut up. I loved the bit about Axelrod and Plouffe meeting him for the VP interview.

    The [first] meeting started with Biden launching into a nearly 20-minute monologue that ranged from the strength of our campaign in Iowa (“I literally wouldn’t have run if I knew the steamroller you guys would put together”); to his evolving views of Obama (“I wasn’t sure about him in the beginning of the campaign, but I am now”); why he didn’t want to be VP (“The last thing I should do is VP; after 36 years of being the top dog, it will be hard to be No. 2″); why he was a good choice (“But I would be a good soldier and could provide real value, domestically and internationally”); and everything else under the sun. Ax and I couldn’t get a word in edgewise.

    It confirmed what we suspected: this dog could not be taught new tricks.

    Hilarious except when Joe is talking to Russians or Chinese, or Indians, or Iranians, or… You know what I mean.

  13. Dear Mr. Jones,
    we’re sorry that we informed you that your CAT scan was normal. Actually, you’re dieing of a brain tumor.

    Sorry…”But we are pleased, we’re pleased to make this information available publicly and so promptly …”

    Good luck,

  16. It’s a bit unfair to complain the Stimulus Bill hasn’t resulted in renewed economic activity.

    It never was about the economy. Stimulating the economy was only a convenient excuse, the political equivalent of “sheep’s clothing.” It’s a common trick: a variation on Bait and Switch.

    The name is warm and fuzzy, most everyone gets taken in at first, but it’s false, the name misrepresents the actual intent of the bill. That’s the unfair part, the name, the bill stimulates nothing but more debt, it hurts the economy at the worst possible time.

    Actually, the bill was designed to fund leftist organizations, initially to cover current expenses, but most importantly to fund campaign activities in 2010 and 2012. That’s when lots and lots of ACORNs will be sufficiently stimulated to get jobs working on Democrat campaigns, and taxpayers get to pick-up the tab. Cute trick.

    For anyone slow on the uptake, that means (short list) re-electing Democrats, advancing Obama’s collectivist agenda, suppressing freedom, supporting dictators and tyrants, and increasing government bureaucracy.

    Had the bill been intended to stimulate the economy, the money would already have been spent. But, major portions of the funds aren’t scheduled to be released till they can be used to make sure the institutions of government remain safely in Democrat hands.

    Same with the health care reform bill, it’s designed to destroy Medicare and tax everything they can list. That’s why it’s so many pages, there are so many new things to tax.

  17. As usual, Monty Python’s Flying Circus proves to have been ahead of its time.

    Politician: Gentlemen, our MP saw the PM this AM and the PM wants more LSD from the PIB by tomorrow AM or PM at the latest. I told the PM’s PPS that AM was NBG so tomorrow PM it is for the PM nem. con. Give us a fag or I’ll go spare [asking a colleague for a cigarette]. Now, the fiscal deficit with regard to the monetary balance, the current financial year excluding invisible exports, but adjusted of course for seasonal variations and the incremental statistics of the fiscal and revenue arrangements for the forthcoming annual budgetary period terminating in April.
    First Official: I think he’s talking about taxation.
    Politician: Bravo, Madge. Well done. Taxation is indeed the very nub of my gist. Gentlemen, we have to find something new to tax.
    Second Official: I understood that.
    Third Official: If I might put my head on the chopping block so you can kick it around a bit, sir…
    Politician: Yes?
    Third Official: Well most things we do for pleasure nowadays are taxed, except one.
    Politician: What do you mean?
    Third Official: Well, er, smoking’s been taxed, drinking’s been taxed but not … thingy.
    Politician: Good Lord, you’re not suggesting we should tax… thingy?
    First Official: Poo poo’s?
    Third Official: No.
    First Official: Thank God for that. Excuse me for a moment. (leaves)
    Third Official: No, no, no – thingy.
    Second Official: Number ones?
    Third Official: No, thingy.
    Politician: Thingy!
    Second Official: Ah, thingy. Well it’ll certainly make chartered accountancy a much more interesting job.

    — Think it isn’t coming? Just wait until AlGore or one of his Libtard friends comes up with a study showing all of the harmful emissions resulting from sexual activity. Hell, when I watched him kiss (or was that “maul”) his wife at the 2000 Dimocrat Convention, I almost made a harmful emission . . . of the puke variety.

  18. Yes, I can see it now:
    We’ll have to purchase “Sex Stamps” at the Post Office – in advance!
    No Stamp, No Sex!
    And, of course the corollary is, that you won’t be able to buy any birth-control devices without having a suitable supply of stamps in possession.
    The mind boggles on how far this could be taken.
    Plus, excise taxes on “sexual paraphenalia” as defined by some faceless bureaucrat working deep in the bowels of the Treasury.

  19. Don’t write “sexual paraphenalia” and “deep in the bowels” in the same sentence.

  21. So tell me again how the government is going to provide health care for Americans.

    The government will provide health care like this: “H1N1 Vaccinations To Be Offered To Guantanamo Bay Detainees…” (from Drudge)

    Meanwhile even pregnant women cannot get the vaccine.

  22. I hope they’re giving them the shots with the really active stuff – they deserve only the best.
