What can you do with a glossy blue pamphlet?

Instead of an actual budget, the Party of NO, er, the Republicans in Congress offered nothing but a Glossy Blue Pamphlet to the American people. Must've been tough to come up with that number. Oh, wait it didn't include any numbers. Hmm...

I have to admit, I am completely uneducated when it comes to what is happening with the budget right now, I have done NO research on it-but this was pretty funny! Maybe now I'll do some research to see what's going on...

The DNC Web ad is obviously a very unbiased (yet comical) view of the House's GOP "pamphlet". I don't know whats worse, Pres. Obama promising Timothy Geithner will have a plan the next day...and him having nothing prepared, or a pretty blue pamphlet with zero details. What else is worse? Drawing insanely large numbers out of the hat like $787 billion, somewhere in the trillions, or not giving a price tag yet. And did it really take them all this time to come up with that? I'll just sum up I'm not impressed.

And again I feel like both parties are "damned if you do, damned if you don't" at this point. They will not please everyone, and they are almost to the point of pleasing no one. Republicans can either be the "party of No" as Lula and Robert Gibbs have stated, or "stand back and watch this administration shoot itself in the foot or have wild success", either way it is lose-lose for us.

I find it sadly funny how both sides try to embarrass the other, how they try to one up each other, even more so now than I've noticed in a long time. How very high school when the Rep's and Dem's compete like rival teams in the same football league. To bad we're not all on the same team here. Oh, but wait, we're supposed to be on the same team. You could've fooled me.

That was pretty funny. I hadn't heard about this. It does seem a bit like saying, "I have the cure for cancer but I forgot to write out the process for it."

I wish both sides could just work together and figure out what is best for our country, not what looks best for democrats or what looks best for republicans.
