Here’s a photo of who attended a Senate Budget Committee meeting yesterday, and it explains a lot:



Ed Morrissey at Hot Air has more:

The meeting was broadcast on one of the C-SPAN channels, so this isn’t exactly a secret. Only three Democrats bothered to show up at all, out of a dozen assigned to it. Republicans showed up, prepared to cast votes to finally bring the ignominious streak of 1,085 days (as of yesterday) without a budget resolution to an end. Sadly, Democrats — who control the committee, the chamber, and the White House — don’t have the same sense of responsibility.

Oh well… like Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-elusional) says, “Budget? We don’t need no stinking budget!”

    Just pass another continuing resolution!

    That'll teach those rascally Democrats a lesson.

    I think we need to continue the Tea Party Takeover in November. Then, we can get the RINOs to finally switch over to the D's, and then complete the takeover in 2014.

    Hey Doug, give the Dem's a break. They needed to sleep in. You know it is a lot of hard work spending our great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great grandchildren's money…./sarc

    Although such things as this C-span photo with shopped text might be helpful to a certain point we really don’t need pictures and diagrams showing what and why things are broken, we need people with the balls to do something about it.

    That’s why Reagan is and was so loved and reviled.

    Dems know they are required to pass annual budgets, but not doing so has proven they can get away with not doing their jobs !

    Dems also know that a budget has itemized spending listed for all to see. They cannot let the ordinary citizens and real conservatives see what they plan to do to the country ! That would surely sound their death knell !

    Watch out, SPG… Talk like that will have you sitting next to Ted Nugent in the SS waiting room…

    I`ve said far worse and meant every word ! Meeting the Nuge would no doubt be quite memorable !

    “That would surely sound their death knell !”

    Quite possibly, but I wonder.

    You’re giving the Dem’s, the unions, the current educational system, 99%ers, and others the assumptions of a rational, America First, American exceptionalism, American capitalistic exceptionalism, thought process when many, or maybe even most of them have actually morphed over the years into selfish, me first, “hope and change”, full-blown anti-constitutionalists that want little more than national mediocrity in the name of so-called fairness.

    Even for those who have become societal leaches and produce and/or contribute nothing to American greatness and are not willing even to fight back when attacked on our own shores.

    Yes, I do tend to try to start out thinking the best of people and let them refine my impressions. Sometimes you do well to get an ounce of gold from a ton of ore !

    Zero was elected by 52Ish% of the electorate / those who could be bothered to turn out and cast a vote. Do I remember correctly that fewer than 50% of eligible voters turned out in `08 ?

    "You`re giving the dems, …."; The number IS alarmingly high, but as I understand it, conservatives make up about a third of the electorate while libs only comprise about a fifth, surely less than a fourth. Voter apathy is a serious problem among all groups, especially conservatives. Too many insist on being thrilled by a personality rather than paying close attention, thinking about the real issues and then voting for the candidate who "best fits" their beliefs. No one is perfect and as Rush explains, too many good people avoid politics because of the "Anal Exam" and poison arrows they know they`ll get in the campaign !

    I recall MM saying "Conservatives turn out the vote time and again to… defeat ghey marriage and for 36 consecutive tries, it is defeated soundly! THEN on the 37th time liberals try to cattle prod it thru and many Conservatives will say; ghey marriage ( didn't we defeat that about 3 dozen times 'already'? and simply stay home! )

    So I hardly blame Conservatives when prog-legislators and activist judges CONTINUE to allow this cr@p on the ballot time and again simply because the same people that signed the Measure LAST go round remained on their mailing list and were called into 'action' yet again?

    I'm paraphrasing of course.
