I made a lot of fun of Mitch McConnell last month when he said this:
MCCONNELL: I think we clearly do need to make sure Americans know what we would do and we’re gonna make that announcement in late September so the voters will have an opp…And it turns out he wasn't bluffing - they had a thing in mind! And now it's out for me to make more fun of! Note: the whole document I'm linking too is hosted by CBS news, which means you shouldn't believe anything in it.
HOST: But you have an opportunity right here to spell it out.
MCCONNELL: Yeah but I think I won’t scoop myself. We’ll be making that announcement in late September.
I'm a little short on time today so just a few remarks:
I'm glad they're dropping that whole "reducing the deficit thing," because it would just be troublesome.
Check this out:
Unfortunately, the metrics used to hold Congress accountable are often flawed. Rather than using the scale of how well elected representatives represent the views of the people, the scale is often currently measured in bills passed, dollars spent, and programs created. This must change....Any ideas on how to judge you on that, boys?
Every American must ask: what has Congress done to ensure opportunity and to safeguard my liberty and the freedoms guaranteed to me in the Constitution? We stand ready to be judged by that standard.
And, of course, any ideas? We've been waiting for this for a while now, and and far as I can see the ideas are LESS TAXES (because taxes are really low now and the economy is just soarin' like an eagle) and reducing the size of government, just like GW Bush and the Republican congress and senate did after they promised to in 2000.
And, apparently, an unspoken pledge to license massive amounts of clip art, thus stimulating the clip art sector.
