Nobody likes me, everybody hates me, I think I'll go eat worms!

The party of gNO!p is at it again, (and again and again):
At President Obama's talks with Senate Republicans, little is accomplished

President Obama went to Capitol Hill on Tuesday for a rare meeting with Senate Republicans, but the 75-minute session yielded little progress on hot-button topics and left some senators with bruised feelings.
Did President Obama huut yur por wittl feewins!? Good.

From day one of Obama's election repugs bragged about being the party of no and obstructing everything even if they had voted for it before. (See Waterloo, Presidential appointments, legislation, &c, &c, &c.)

What's hard to believe is that Dems keep falling for this monkey flinging crap. Obama & the Dems keep adopting rethug legislative compromises to get the rethug votes and then the rethugs turn around and still vote NO.

At what point does one just say F**k you and do the right thing? (BTW, senator roberts, the POTUS doesn't need to take a valium, you need to take lithium. Your chemical imbalance from voting NO on things you proposed shows signs of Bicameral Disorder.)

GOP: U.S. can't afford to fund health 'entitlement program' for 9/11 rescue workers

Republicans argued Tuesday that it would put the nation's finances at risk if Congress gave aiing Sept. 11 responders a permanent, guaranteed program to ensure they get health care.
Speaking to dozens of responders gathered in a Capitol Hill hearing chamber, Rep. John Shimkus (R-Ill.) argued that their demand for the federal government to help "would be just if we weren't spending money already."
Gosh Shimkus, you mean like spending money that you've voted for on wars on countries that had nothing to do with 9/11?

But his statement is all you need to know about republican philosophy.

If the REPUBLICAN administration in charge on 9/11 had been truthful about the air quality at Ground Zero, maybe they wouldn't need the healthcare money.

I have long maintained that a republican would not stop their limo to piss on a poor persons face if it were on fire. Why do you think Christine Todd Whitman quit the E.P.A.? CNN covered it nicely, commenting: Environmentalists have long suggested Whitman was unhappy with the White House over several key environmental policies, but she has steadfastly said she was happy in her work.

In a statement, Sierra Club Executive Director Carl Pope said Whitman was often at odds with the Bush administration on policy matters.

"Under the circumstances, Christie Whitman did the best she could at the EPA, but the Bush administration simply wouldn't allow her to do the job," Pope said. As an example, he cited what he described as a broken campaign pledge by Bush to curb carbon dioxide emissions."

One of the main "policy matters" that brought about her resignation was gwb's refusal to allow her to speak out about the poisonous atmosphere at Ground Zero.

But it comes to me as no surprise that our government allows the deliberate poisoning of Americans as being an Agent Orange victim myself I feel as if I am qualified to make that statement without equivocation.

Just as the government sought to not reveal the dangers of Agent Orange it fought off, and temporarily won, the battle to keep truth of Ground Zero's atmosphere a secret.

Maybe it would have been too embarrassing to let bin Laden know the full number of people killed and later poisoned. bin Laden engineered the planes bringing down the towers, but it was the gwb administration that killed and wounded so many subsequently by hiding the truth.

How embarrassing it would be to admit this and provide lasting health care for the real heroes of 911.
