#4 A friend of mine was pulled before his bosses due to his fondness for "long lunches"
The first question they asked him was if he had a drinking problem?
No,he said; "only when I'm broke"
So no, it's not a false argument to say that Washington has a "spending problem." especially when it's broke

#7 As any alcoholic or druggie will tell you, it's a supply problem, not a behavioral problem.

#9 I got a nose bleed reading this article.
For all of those who point at Bush's last four as the real reason for the recession, just remember WHO was SOH and WHAT party controlled both the HOR and the Senate...geez, the abbreviation for House of Representatives is so appropriate for them these days

#10 It's A 'False Argument To Say We Have A Spending Problem'
It's a LIE to say (As you do) That we DON'T.
Gotcha, or do lies NOT count, well if you're in power, I guess they don't (Until election time)

It's sad to think of who put her in office--particularly if they think she makes any sense. One would think she has been hittin the California mind bender medical marijuana or Thai Stick before the interview.

#12 Don't forget LSD. Her eyes look a bit dilated in the video, especially considering all they lights they must have been using for a televised interview.

#14 Sooner or later the global banking system is gonna crash. With this kind of denial in positions of leadership, and outrageous trading practices by banks and hedge funds, the outcome is pretty much guaranteed. Everybody still thinks they've got their own place at the betting table ... but no-one wants to admit that their checkbook is empty.
A crash may not happen this year ... but it's gonna happen. I hope that people like Bernanke and Pelosi get pelted with eggs when it does go down.

#15 I agree Raider, & this woman is a pathological liar; as are many in her profession. She can be comforted by the fact that 20% of the electorate will be so stupid as to believe it. Another 20% will be too apathetic to care, and the last 20% will be the die-hard statists that don't care because they're good w/having future generations be tax serfs. The sad fact is this - neither side really wants to cut, and it might be too late anyhow. Bring on the cliff, the sooner, the better. Or just shut down congress to essential DOD functions to protect the country from outside attack. Although I think our internal stupidity has already runined us.

#16 Ditto BH6. I would only add "feckless pathological liar".

#17 I can see the future and in the future, when it collapses and the riots begin, Nancy of Morons will say, "Let them eat red tape"
Posted by Silentbrick 2013-02-11 18:34||
#18 ..the riots will be in the dark blue disarmed urban areas. Those beyond the outer belt won't have much of a problem other than keeping the refugees confined to the interstate on their way to the next deep blue urban area. Just tell them the 'free' stuff is over there ->

#19 Well, after listening to her for X amount of years, I think the woman's problem is that she's just a fuckin idiot.
