IWA For Sunday 080711

What in the Blue Hell did you WANT?

Hey folks,

You know, as we wrap it up with the Idiot of the Week, I really have no idea how to describe my anger and disappointment. I really don't. In 2010, we the People spoke loud and clear. The Message to those folks in Washington was a simple one. Cut spending, reduce the size of Government, FREE the Private Sector so that they can do what they do. Make America GREAT again. No more Politics as usual.

During the Debt Ceiling debate, we saw glimpses of greatness and signs of hope, that those in the House, the NEW Leadership, that WE gave them, the New Leadership in the House HEARD us, and was starting to listen for the first time in a LONG time.

What happened? In the end, they cut NOTHING, and Raised the Debt Ceiling over two TRILLION MORE Dollars that we do not have. They INCREASED Spending, and cut NOTHING. Obama got EVERYTHING that he wanted, including a back door way to raise Taxes on EVERYONE and wash his hands of it at the same time. {Sigh}

So what did the Speaker have to say about the deal?

"When you look at this final agreement that we came to with the White House, I got 98 percent of what I wanted. I'm pretty happy,"
You got 98 percent of what you wanted? What in the Blue Hell did you WANT? It was OBVIOUSLY NOT what the People wanted. But this is NOT why I award you the Idiot of the Week. Let me explain it to you this way.

Music Plays. Pyro explodes. Boom boom bang bang bang boom! Lights come up and the Crowd goes wild... "Ladies and Gentleman, Welcome to the Show." Crowd goes even more wild. "Tonight, the main event will be for the World Heavyweight Championship. First the New Champion, {Played by Speaker of the House John Boehner} will defend his newly won title in a Match against the Challenger {Played by Harry Reid} in a No Holds Barred, Last Man Standing match. Lets see what they have to say about this. First the Challenger. Dirty Harry. What do you have to say?"

Dirty Harry. "The Champ is an Idiot. He has no idea what he is doing and he is wasting his time listening to all these Pencil Neck Geeks {Played by you} out there. He is going DOWN! I will mop the floor with him. I know, he has all the cards. I know he is one tough SOB. But I will win. I will get the Championship. I have no doubt about it."

"OK, Paul Revere? Champ? You easily won the Title last pay per view. {The Tea Party Voted you into power in a LANDSLIDE} Everyone knows that you have all the cards. You have the Leverage. YOU have the Power to take Dirty Harry out. He thinks he is going to just walk in an take your title from you. What do you have to say about that?"

Paul Revere "Well, it's simple really. I'm the Champ. I do have ALL the Advantage. The PEOPLE are on my side. I can't lose. Dirty Harry is going DOWN. And that's all I got to say about that. The PEOPLE will still have their Champ when this match is done."

Bell rings, Chair shot to the head. DH put through a Table. Names and object thrown at each other left and right. 5 minutes pass. 10, 20, 30, "How long can this thing go on?" Out from the back comes running down to the Ring, the Self Proclaimed 'The Chosen One' {Played by Obama} who hits PR over the head with a chair. Then the time keeper's bell. Then the Title Belt itself. The Ref tries to restore order when another Theme Song starts playing. Out of the back comes running down to the Ring 'The Truth' {Played by Rush Limbaugh} who hits 'The Chosen One' with his Patented "Absolute Truth" Move.

Running out of the back is now 'The Chosen One's Minions. Then the 'Truth Army' Chaos ensues. 40 minutes, 50. Both the Champ and the Challenger lay bloodied and beaten in the middle of the Ring. Ref Counts 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 "That's it. Ring the bell. No one wins!"

So now, the Champ says, "Hey, I won. I'm still the Champ." The Challenger says."He never beat me. No one won. But next time, I'll get him." But the Music plays, the Credits roll. Lights go out and the People go home. In the back? The Champ and the Challenger pop a beer and tell each other that it was a hell of a show. They embrace and pat each other on the back for a Job well done.

I know, I can hear ya now out there. "Pete, this is not the WWE! This is way to important for them to play this type of game. We Voted the Libs out of Power in the House to STOP these games. This was just to difficult for us to understand. We have to trust our Representatives and Trust that they will do what is best for the Country." Really? The Speaker Boehner was on CBS News with Host Scott Pelley who asked him THIS. Here is the Exchange.

Pelley: Folks at home have been watching the acrimony, name calling, finger pointing. And I wonder whether the Congress has lost something, an ability to talk to each other, to settle down and make agreements?

Boehner: Well, there's the public noise and then there's the private discussion. Some of the most liberal members of Congress are great friends of mind. But the American people don't see the cooperation that exists off camera that really are the glue that holds this place together.

Pelley: Are you saying it's not as bad as it looks?

Boehner: It's not as bad as it looks.
Ding ding! Shows over. They are in the back playing it up. Read that again. "Well, there's the public noise and then there's the private discussion. Some of the most liberal members of Congress are great friends of mind. But the American people don't see the cooperation that exists off camera that really are the glue that holds this place together." "What'cha going to do Brother, when the Champ runs wild on YOU?" {Sigh}

Congratulations Speaker Boehner. Hell of a show. Hell of a Show! Thank you for confirming what we all suspected. Without a DRASTIC Change in Leadership, the Games will continue to be played in Washington that got us where we are today, and that will not only KEEP us here, but make things even WORSE. We did not grant you the Leadership in the House to play games and Politics as usual. No. We put you there to STOP the Games. If the Liberals are such great friends of yours. Then why not stop wasting time and just lay down and let them cover you for the Three. You are without a doubt, the Idiot of the Week.
Peter
