A spokesman for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi defended the plan, saying it was “crafted based on the advice of some of our nation’s leading economists.” Spokesman Nadeam Elshami said the CBO report did not examine the tax and mandatory-spending provisions in the plan, which he said could be more quickly enacted.it's all young and fun and skiing and then one day you login and it's relationship advice, gomer glacier tours and geezers.

Obama as authoritarian.
For everyone who scoffed at the notion that Obama is a power hungry authoritarian who sees the constitution as a obstacle to be overcome:
Byrd: Obama in power grab
Sen. Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.), the longest-serving Democratic senator, is criticizing President Obama’s appointment of White House “czars” to oversee federal policy, saying these executive positions amount to a power grab by the executive branch.
In a letter to Obama on Wednesday, Byrd complained about Obama’s decision to create White House offices on health reform, urban affairs policy, and energy and climate change. Byrd said such positions “can threaten the Constitutional system of checks and balances. At the worst, White House staff have taken direction and control of programmatic areas that are the statutory responsibility of Senate-confirmed officials.”
In too many instances, White House staff have been allowed to inhibit openness and transparency, and reduce accountability.

You keep saying that Pelosi's spokesperson keeps backing the initial "report". Yet every quote you've provided has said exactly the opposite. Please show us where Pelosi backs the initial "report". Even that last one, you highlighted where they said there were problems with the "report" but backed the plan.Goals for the season: -Try and pick up a sponsor.--Phill

Hey everybody - want to see a true butthurt stalker at work? Go to my profile and look at the recent visitors - for like the past 9 months Assbush hasn't fallen off that list once. The guy's obsessed with me.
Assbush - read what you typed in your last post. It doesn't make any sense. I'm not saying I'm surprised, I'm just pointing that out.

Hands of Obama Officials Seen in 2008 BofA Talks
WASHINGTON -- The Obama administration is being drawn into the drama over Bank of America Corp. because of notes taken by bank executives suggesting Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and Lawrence Summers, the president's top economic adviser, supported efforts last year to pressure the bank to consummate its merger with Merrill Lynch & Co.

When Obama made his first run for political office, articles in both the Chicago Defender and the Hyde Park Herald featured among his qualifications his position as chairman of the board of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, a foundation where Ayers was a founder and guiding force. Obama assumed the Annenberg board chairmanship only months before his first run for office, and almost certainly received the job at the behest of Bill Ayers.
With Obama heading up the board and Ayers heading up the other key operating body of the Annenberg Challenge, the two would necessarily have had a close working relationship for years...
Obama as a secret Muslim/terrorist/anti-American.
If you want to put the alphabet media and H-Wood on the same level as the redneck contingent on the Right, by all means, go right ahead. I'm not sure what H-Wood is going to think of that but he can take that up with you if he doesn't like being compared to them.
Obama the socialist (still trying to get that one to stick--probably plays OK among Americans who don't know what socialism is).

Hi there--sorry I missed all the excellent tangentry.
Rubicon, I've only read bits of Alinsky's stuff, but I've read enough, and enough background to say that I don't find him or his ideas frightening, or even very radical. Frankly, I feel the same way about Ayers. You've got every right to your opinion, but my point is that most people don't find Obama's "associations" "troubling"--even after Fox, etc. and the alphabet media flogged it relentlessly during the campaign.
After the last eight years where the boys running the show (Nixon disciples like Cheney, Rove, and Rumsfeld) were associating with creepy evangelists, criminal lobbyists like Jack Abrahamoff, and criminal corporations like Enron... holding up boogeymen like Ayers and Alinsky while muttering darkly about socialism just isn't going to get any traction. In fact, it actually gives a lot people a little glimmer of hope that maybe they won't get fucked quite as badly as they did during last round.

Investigators said they also found a notebook in the car with handwritten notes saying, "The Holocaust is a lie. Obama was created by Jews. Obama does what his Jew owners tell him to do. Jews captured America's money. Jews control the mass media."Damn shame, throwing away a perfectly good white boy like that

I've read more than "bits" of Alinsky's stuff which is why I knew you hadn't when you made the above statement.
Dude, you just made that up out of thin air. How are you not full of shit on this?

Fox News hosts are wondering aloud, why Obama keeps bringing up Their Network. So far they don't get it. Here's the reason. Rule #13 from Rules for Radicals....
13. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. In conflict tactics there are certain rules that [should be regarded] as universalities. One is that the opposition must be singled out as the target and 'frozen.'...
"...any target can always say, 'Why do you center on me when there are others to blame as well?' When your 'freeze the target,' you disregard these [rational but distracting] arguments.... Then, as you zero in and freeze your target and carry out your attack, all the 'others' come out of the woodwork very soon. They become visible by their support of the target...'
"One acts decisively only in the conviction that all the angels are on one side and all the devils on the other." (pps.127-134)
He's in the early stages of setting them Fox up to be vilifyed, marginalized and format dismantled through the use of the fairness doctrine or some other method of eliminating opposition. Fox isn't FAIR.
