Talking Points Tuesdays – Hypocrisy

Hy·poc·ri·sy – a pretense of having a virtuous character, moral or religious beliefs or principles, etc., that one does not really possess.

I am starting to believe that Republicans like Senator Jim Bunning (R-KY) suffer from bipolar disorder; on Friday February 26th Sen. Bunning decided that he had to stand up for the American people. If he had to be the only voice of reason in stopping needless spending by the United States government he would stand and stand-alone.


This nutbag all of a sudden had an epiphany and decided that he had enough of poor government spending. So how would this delusional out of touch cantankerous moron display his displeasure with the Senate and their frivolous spending ways???? The only way a privileged piece of shit would see fit; holding up a $10 billion dollar spending bill. Not just any spending bill, his block on the bill forced some 2,000 federal employees into unpaid furloughs, put jobless benefits in jeopardy for millions and halted more than 40 highway projects.

Bravo Senator Bunning, you definitely proved a point… unfortunately you only proved how much of a dumbass you are! Why not stand up against something that would hurt big business instead of hurting millions of Americans who are struggling to survive while trying to find a job as we recover from this recession. Here’s a thought, why not stand up against increasing the defense budget? Instead you choose to hurt the people you serve, the American people you claim you are protecting from big government spending. I wonder if Senator Bunning ever faced the possibility of missing a mortgage payment or looking at his kids not knowing where their next meal was coming from. I am guessing he never had to wonder about that!

Jim Bunning, the former MLB pitcher now Senator representing Kentucky continued his insanity Tuesday morning; once again blocking a vote. It’s as if he was having a flash back to when he was a pitcher on the mound stalling while he decided his next pitch. What did he hope to gain from all this?

Continuing his delay Bunning decided to lecture the senate about spending, he talked about the hypocrisy of the government to ask Americans to be wise in budgeting while it’s government shameless continued spending on programs they had no idea how they would be paid for ($10 billion dollar spending bill). As he stood at his self-proclaimed bully pulpit he spoke of utilizing a method President Obama asked Congress to enact a little over a month ago; Pay-As-You-Go aka PAYGO.

I have to admit that Senator Bunning has a point, on January 28th Congress voted in favor of enacting PAYGO. So I applaud Bunning for wanting to stick with that initiative, the only problem with Bunning calling on PAYGO is that the dumb shit voted along party lines against PAYGO! Since PAYGO was an initiative supported by President Obama, no way he could support that as a Republican, WTF!!!

This is what I am talking about; HYPOCRISY! The gall of some of these Republicans, they write letters begging for Stimulus funds and how it will benefit their constituents. Only to turn around months later and demonize Stimulus as big government out of control spending. In another case of hypocrisy they demand the president focus on job creation, so when the president suggest using repaid TARP funds to fund these programs Republicans turn around and say NO!

And now we have Sen. Bunning and his lone crusade with first voting ‘No’ on PAYGO and now calling for the Senate to utilize it! We need to continue to call out the hypocrisy of the Republican party. Let it be clear that Republicans are not alone in this game; Democrats should also be called out when it comes to hypocrisy. No one is allowed to bend the truth to make themselves look good, as the late great Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan once said:

“Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not to his own facts.”


With skyrocketing unemployment the American people don’t have time for the back and forth, we need action!

Late Tuesday night Sen Bunning finally removed his block of the spending bill and it was voted thru the Senate with a overwhelming majority. It will now go to the House for approval, hopefully it will not be too late to still help those in need. All this for nothing, no lessons learned; except for millions of people without unemployment benefits. Obviously to Senator Bunning that’s nothing but a drop in the bucket, right?

It’s time for Democrats and Republicans in both the Senate and the House to STOP THE BULLSHIT!!!!!!

As always….
If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!!

    Again very informative and well said. So when are you running for office?


  2. Mimi · March 3, 2010

    So what is it going to take to get rid of some of the Hypocrisy in Washington?

    This is really frustrating. I believe that the Obama administration is laying out the true cost of everything and the Republicans are stalling everything for no good reason other than to be obstructionists.

    It’d be nice if there were some exchange of ideas instead of sound bites in Washington.
