Says GOP, “Balanced Budget? Psshh…that’s for Democrats!”

WASHINGTON – The Bush administration, moving to cope with soaring budget deficits, says it is bringing back the one-year Treasury bill that it stopped issuing seven years ago when the budget was in surplus. (7 years ago…budget surplus….Democrats…). 

The Repblicans have year after year spent more money than they have in their budget.  And borrowing from Commies?? These Republicans can’t say they’re “Reagan” followers – Ron would never have put us so far in debt to Communist governments and Arab dictators.  (He’d still put us deeply into debt with non-communist countries, of course).

The title “Fiscally Responsible” is now awarded to the Democrats.

Ferraro helps out the Obama campaign

Barack Obama

Obama has been battling back—with the help of a key Clinton supporter.  “If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position,” she said. “And if he was a woman (of any color) he would not be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept.”

For a politician to go on record saying this is… ludicrous.   

Of course it’s insulting.  Minimizing his success and attributing it solely to being a minority?  But she also insults his supporters by saying that anyone who is supporting Barack is simply “caught up in the concept”.   

Ferraro’s remarks serve no purpose.  When Clinton’s supporters do this, it just feeds fuel to the belief that Hillary is too polarizing/divisive.  Some are supporting Obama because he is less polarizing and is perhaps more likely to get things done. Personally, I’m tired of politicians criticizing my views when I don’t support them.   

Her camp has 1 person saying Obama supporters are the ‘latte sipping crowd’ and another person saying basically that his supporters aren’t thinking straight, they’re just caught up in the concept of a black president (as opposed to a female president).   

For Hillary to NOT denounce Ferraro’s comment about those prefer Obama over Hillary is more evidence that she is too divisive.
