New DNC chair: Paul Ryan’s budget would be a “death trap for seniors,” a “tornado through nursing homes”

posted at 6:29 pm on April 6, 2011 by Allahpundit

Two clips for you via Mediaite and the Daily Caller respectively. See now why I thought choosing a Florida liberal for DNC chair was a master stroke? Any leftist can (and will!) accuse Paul Ryan of wanting to kill off the nation’s elderly en masse, but a leftist from Florida knows just what colorful details to add to make that talking point really speak to senior citizens. “Paul Ryan hates grandma” is boring; “Paul Ryan is a tornado tearing through a nursing home” is downright literary. I’m looking forward to seeing what vibrant new metaphors she works up to as she gets more comfortable in office. “Paul Ryan’s budget is like a heavy bookcase that’s fallen on our nation’s seniors, trapping them beneath.” “Don’t our nation’s seniors deserve better than a lethal dose of austerity from Paul Ryan’s budgetary medication?” “After all our nation’s seniors have done for America, Paul Ryan’s heartless reforms are tantamount to forgetting to call them on their birthday.” I know you can do better, Debbie!

Go read Ace for a reminder of what sort of budgetary medication Dr. Wasserman-Schultz voted to dispense last year. Eighteen more months of this, guys. Eighteen. More. Months.

She forgot to add that Paul Ryan is an angry Mothra-like alien intent on laser-beaming-from-his-eyes grandpa’s living room while he’s saying his evening prayers for world peace.

I’m disappointed, frankly. She’s lost her edge.

Remember, Little Debbie, Obamacare’s death panels got snuck back in before passage. Talk about a death trap!

However, the death panels are nothing compared to Obamacare’s illicit deal with AARP.

That deal with the devil will kill lots more seniors than Ryan’s budget …1) doctors will quit before they treat us for almost nothing but can still get sued ’til the cows come home. 2)None of us will be able to find a doctor that is qualified or speaks English.

Schultz looks like somebody fed her rock candy with a slingshot. Plus, she’s so inane, I just can’t get scared when she threatens me with starvation.

these people are such losers….speaking of which, really, how much of a loser is O?:

“If you’re complaining about the price of gas and you’re only getting 8 miles a gallon, you know,” Obama said laughingly. “You might want to think about a trade-in.”

8-mpg??? who gets 8mpg?

Why do I think the guy hasn’t driven a car in 20 years?


“Gas prices? They’re going to still fluctuate until we can start making these broader changes, and that’s going to take a couple of years to have serious effect.”

Seriously, wtf is this loser talking about?

I get the impression Debbie and Paul aren’t on smooching terms.

karl9000 on April 6, 2011 at 7:37 PM

With a puss like that, I doubt she’d be on smooching terms with a toilet plunger.

ROFL!! Poetry! Sheer poetry! I bow to the master.

Marbel hit it on the nose. The whole purpose of Obamacare
1. Decrease the surplus population . (dem fantasy)\
2. Save Social Security through euthanizing as many seniors possible either directly or refusing meds etc.
The Dems are gutting medicare to pay for Obamacare. If he gets reelected it’s last nail in America. We are well on the way to becoming a third world socialist nation.

SANTA on April 6, 2011 at 8:38 PM

Well Paul, it looks like the Dems didn’t waste any time demagoging the issue.

PackerBronco on April 6, 2011 at 8:49 PM

A PATH to poverty provided by Republicans!!?? My God, seniors will no longer have to worry about budgets, budget cuts, debts, deficits and insurance under the Democrats!!!!!!!! As we sit here in 17% U6 unemployment provided by lying Democrats, they who could would not pass a budget now have the entire government in disarray for their own lack of principles and desire for one-party rule.
Effin’ DEMOCRATS !!!!!!!!!
How about that charming turn of phrase for Democrats that they are earning every hour of every day: OBSTRUCTIONISTS !!!!!!

I was thinking that someone used her face for a stump-grinder, but the rock candy thing works as well.

The biggest problem is that there is a large group out there who will buy her bullsh!t because the MSM will not call her out on her hypocrisy, and they will take at face value the malarkey that is spoon-fed to them.

Yup, she’s getting right to work! She may even outperform Howard Dean! I am truly amazed that ANY of the US populace swallows any liberal drivel.

I think I dislike her more than I disliked Kaine. I wish he’d lose his Senate race…I think I’ll send money to – where is it? Virginnie?

New DNC chair: Paul Ryan’s budget would be a “death trap for seniors,” a “tornado through nursing homes”

…As opposed to the DNC plan…by which political appointees on Death Panels deliberately execute seniors one by one???…

It was the Democrats who started taxing Social Security, who made up phony inflation numbers so they had an excuse to deny Social Security COLAs, and who are trying to destroy Medicare Advantage, and who are chasing doctors out of Medicare…out of Medicaid…and out of the USA!!

Truly one of the most repulsive figures in American politics today.

Dopenstrange on April 7, 2011 at 1:45 AM

They must keep all their talking points in a file labeled, Use this to demagogue pubs for…and then sub files for each situation. They drag them out so fast and even the media has the points so they’re all singing the same tune at the same time. Broadway should be this good.

“Paul Ryan’s budget is tantamount to salmonella on the meatloaf at Luby’s during the early bird special, sickening America’s seniors!”
