Open thread: Sunday morning talking heads

posted at 8:01 am on March 17, 2013 by Allahpundit

This morning brings a grab bag: A little pope analysis, a bit of navel-gazing over CPAC and the future of the GOP, and a whole lot of yakking about the new Democratic and Republican congressional budgets with Paul Ryan, Chris Van Hollen, John Boehner, Dick Durbin, and the rest of the usual suspects. Expect a few lame “what St. Patrick’s Day means to me” speeches from the various hosts as well.

Meanwhile, Dr. Ben Carson will build on his CPAC speech with an appearance on “State of the Union.” The line-up via National Journal:

Meet the Press hosts Cardinal Francis George, Rep. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, former Oklahoma Gov. Frank Keating and former Maryland Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend

Face the Nation hosts Ryan, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., and RNC Chairman Reince Priebus

This Week hosts Boehner and Rep. Xavier Becerra, D-Calif.

Fox News Sunday hosts Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin, Freedomworks president/CEO Matt Kibbe and former Rep. Steve LaTourette, R-Ohio.

State of the Union hosts Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger, D-Md., Rep. Tulsi Gabbard. D-Hawaii, Rep. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., American Conservative Union President Al Cardenas, Rep. Raul Grijalva, R-Ariz., and Dr. Ben Carson

A little pope analysis,

Speaking of Catholics…

Here’s a somewhat less dignified Irish blessing for Patrick’s Day:

May the wind at your back be not caused by the corned beef & cabbage you had for lunch.

the future of the GOP

…seems pretty good.

We’ve got about 30 GOP governors & nearly that many GOP legislatures in the US.
So we’re affecting our nation big-time already.
As the effects of the policies of, say, Wisconsin are publicly compared to, say, Illinois, a conservative president & Congress are guaranteed.
If people haven’t totally forgotten how to think.

The only way we could destroy such hopes?
By alienating social conservatives.

itsnotaboutme on March 17, 2013 at 8:11 AM

Paul Ryan never met “Big Government” spending he didn’t sigh up for.

Term limits!

Jayrae on March 17, 2013 at 8:13 AM

a conservative president & Congress are guaranteed.

That’s what we said after O was elected the first time. Nothing is guaranteed when the OFA machine is put into action.

The mental masturbation these politicians put out is appalling. The politicians live by their “code” and it’s becoming more and more obvious that the BS is overwhelming when anyone can checkout the BS. There are 1300 federal agencies, Google (list of government agencies) while you’re at it Google the (number of staff for Congress) over 23,000 under different titles but still considered staff that are appointed by our supposed Representatives that we have no say, on who, what or where.

Did I read Ryan’s budget correctly, it increases spending by 3.4%?

The only one that has any Papa analysis seems to be Meet the Press. I’m surprised that it is Francis George, not Timmy D., on the program.

Meet the Press hosts Cardinal Francis George, Rep. Chris Van Hollen, Communist-Md., House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, former Oklahoma Gov. Frank Keating (long time RINO) and former Maryland Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend

Face the Nation hosts Ryan, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Communist-Minn., and RNC/Eunuch Chairman Reince Priebus

This Week hosts Boehner and Rep. Xavier Becerra, Communist-Calif.

Fox News Sunday hosts Sen. Bob Corker, Eunuch-Tenn., Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin Communist-IL, Freedomworks president/CEO Matt Kibbe and former Rep. Steve LaTourette, Eunuch-Ohio.

State of the Union hosts Rep. Mike Rogers, Eunuch-Mich., Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger, Communist-Md., Rep. Tulsi Gabbard. Communist-Hawaii, Rep. Tom Cotton, Eunuch-Ark., American Conservative Union President Al Cardenas, Rep. Raul Grijalva, Eunuch-Ariz., and Dr. Ben Carson

…..I can’t think of one of these that doesn’t have firm roots in the D.C. Ruling class. Even Kibbe and Freedomworks, who wasted $8 million in that payoff for services to Dick Armey, is a Steve Forbes guy.

Mignon (?!? — What, is she a choice cut?) Clyburn, daughter of Rep. James Clyburn, makes the pitch for Obamaphone recipients. After all, how else are OFA activists to stay connected, eh?

They’ve been running in SW Ohio on Fox Cable for about a month. In the one run here, a young veteran is sitting with his nodding with as he explains his epiphany on SSM since he learned his brother (and best man at his wedding) is gay. He now wants to be best man at his wedding. My problem is that in watching the ad, I can’t help thinking the married brother is on the down low.

That’s what I’ve read in the WSJ. At the same time, the AP report carried in my local paper this past Tuesday mentioned “dramatic cuts.”

I hope we can prosecute the media when the roof caves in on our economy and on our society.

It’s like Fatso’s budget in NJ. christie cut the rate of growth his budgets have all been larger then the prvious gov of NJ. when most politicians talk about cuts they are only talking about cutting the project future increases. I only know a couple people who actually made real cuts where gov spending was smaller than the previous years. Its all smoke and mirrors.

“Former Rep. Steve LaTourette, R-Ohio” was absolutely painful to listen to.

Throat Wobbler Mangrove on March 17, 2013 at 10:36 AM

“Allow me to set the record straight,” said Mignon Clyburn, a Democratic member of the Federal Communications Commission according to The Hill. “Without this program, 15 million low-income families would literally be choosing between feeding their children or going without a dial tone that potentially could save their lives and put them on a better economic path.”

Then get off your lazy a**** and get a f***** job. Provide for your own damn family. If I have to pay for your family to have basic services, then I want control over what you do with your time. Otherwise STFU you worthless piece of crap.

Coddling the lazy and poor minded needs to stop.

But see, in this country we robbed them, stole their families inheritance and generally are all whitey robber baron filth. So we should be patriotic and give them “a hand up” and let them have some time on the federal sows’ teats.

Drink of the warm milk of slavery to the sow you Obamaphone teaters. But a warning….. when that federal pig turns on it’s piglets it can be ugly.

PappyD61 on March 17, 2013 at 9:31 AM

Look at the landscape. You are in a world where you have Fox News constantly under attack for being a propaganda network. You have a leader who was the most leftist member of the congress for the few years he suffered there, and that same leader jokes that the remainder of the media is “his base”. What would the producers of those shows feature?

I hope we can prosecute the media when the roof caves in on our economy and on our society.

We will probably have them control the post crash options, too. Look at the examination of the last crash and the solution!

Jaibones on March 17, 2013 at 12:13 PM

Wanna deal with the other philosophy?

Here is a comment from March 11 on NPR under the heading of Ben Carson Says No Apology Needed After Controversial Speech:

Really, so you’re telling me that rich republicans don’t have an affinity for taking money from the middle class and poorest Americans to give to the rich? And before you answer that, remember, I have the ENTIRE Republican policy platform that I can reference to prove that fact, starting with Paul Ryan’s budget plan, right down to every Republican who is still fighting to dismantle the only social safety nets that people in poverty have, with the express intent to divert the “savings” to those who have amassed their fortunes from the declining wages of those whose hard work keep industries running. And when those greedy Republican’s greed gets too much and bankrupts everyone except the share holders, or they buy a company with the express purpose to sell it off for parts, or force a company to go bankrupt, leaving all of the employees jobless, yet they walk off with massive profits, that’s not a problem, right? But yeah, rich liberals want to take other people’s money… WHATEVER. Get a new talking point!

cmsinaz on March 17, 2013 at 9:09 AM

Yep. He probably would. In fact, Dolan has already gotten that question.. like this is the U.S. Presidential elections or something.

Seriously, it is very clear what Dolan was using the whole conclave for. I don’t think that he ever thought that there was a chance that he would be picked but he shrewdly used the talk to generate positive media and raise his profile. When you have a few political battles that you are fighting at home, all the positive press is good. Although it would have been fun to watch Obama’s head go explode-y over Timothy Dolan as Pope.. but Papa Francisco will be just as fun as we can point out all the ridiculous excesses in Obama’s royal court in contrast.

Keep in mind that these very same people that Mignon Clyburn cries about get food/nutrition support from WIC, EBT, and SNAP subsidized by taxpayer dollars. They probably have help from local community and church food banks, too. Their school-age children are given breakfasts, lunches, and sometimes dinners.

Where does this mooching stop?

Either Boehner is an utter idiot, or Obama has tape on something he’s done.
