Overnight: FDR Warning about today's Republicans

Republicans, through the years and now, with few exceptions (Teddy Roosevelt, for instance) are the enemies of the American people, certainly in this century.  It is pure hypocrisy when Republicans characterize themselves as being members of 'the party of Lincoln'.

FDR warned us about them in this video clip below:

Rick Perry Isn't Stupid -- He's Just Ignorant Of The Facts

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Perry

CPAC is going on this week and wraps on Sunday. You all know what CPAC really stands for: Conservative Pinocchio Activists Convention. It's where lies are your friends and truth is your fiend. Longest nose at the end of the week wins and so far, it's a tight race but one of the leading candidates is Texas Republican, Gov. Rick Perry.

This year, in addition to his garbled rhetoric came new packaging. He's got glasses. Someone might have warned him that wearing big oversize spectacles doesn't make you smart, or even look smart, they just bring more attention the ever-growing proboscis.

Rick Perry seems to have really made a popular comeback this week while addressing the crowd, tossing them one piece of raw meat after another. Not that his bon-mots had any relevancy to fact, but he sure got that good ol' time religion feeling going. He stoked the crowd more than anyone else.

So I was interested in doing a little fact-checking on one of his claims. It seemed to fly right into the face of what I had been reading. I live in California now and pay great attention to our fiscal outlook here in my adopted state. According the Perry and reported by YAHOO NEWS:

Perry said Democratic governors lead states with higher taxes, more regulations and fewer jobs. He singled out New York and California as egregious examples.

The Los Angeles Times reported this, recently:

"We now find that California’s state budget situation is even more promising than we projected one year ago," said the report from the Legislative Analyst's Office. "The state’s budgetary condition is stronger than at any point in the past decade."

The state is on track to end the current fiscal year next June with a reserve of $2.4 billion, more than twice the original estimate of $1.1 billion, thanks to higher-than-expected tax revenue, the report said. California's school funding formula is also expected to send $3.1 billion more to schools.

Schools could see an additional $3.1 billion sent to them? Education? Gov. Perry, aren't you the one who wants to eliminate the department of education altogether?

Oh, and according to your own Texas Medical Association, doesn't Texas leads the country in uninsured residents? I know you strive to be number 1, but you do it in the worst possible way.

Governor Perry, how do truth and official reports jibe with your statement condemning Democratic run states? Not so much. Suffering, are we, from the big hat, little cattle syndrome, Gov. Rick? Or is it little brain?

But while you're at the Pinocchio convention, maybe you should talk to your fellow governor from New Jersey, who like you aspires to be elected President in 2016. Governor Chris Christie's state ranks dead last in fiscal solvency, according to the US Economy Report reported by NBC.

Do you really think either of you has a chance to run a nation when you can't even run your own states?
