…does it seem each time a politician refers to their budget as “bold” or their ideas as “bold,” or their plan to do anything as “bold,” one can easily replace the word “bold” with “stupid,” or “poorly thought out,” or “really screwing the poor and middle class so don’t look too close, go see the Smurf movie instead, it’s family-damn-tastic!”
Take this example from a Think Progress article where John Boehner tried to say the S+P didn’t downgrade US credit because of GOP unwillingness to consider revenue increases, but instead because Obama (kinda-sorta) wouldn’t let them eliminate Medicare:
“The President and the Democratic leadership in Washington are trying to blame the tea party, because they know this downgrade is on [the Democrats] (Hmm…that’s a lie). When we took the bold step of proposing entitlement reforms, they reacted not by embracing them and joining us, but by demonizing those proposals for political gain.”
See how that works?
Bold…as in, “Hey man, I was thinking we could save a lot on Grandma’s health care if we were to just tie her hands and feet and throw her off the Crescent City Connection, taking that strong an inititiative would be a truly bold move.”
Have a nice day.

It sounds about right. GOP’ers tell others to STOP BRINGING UP BUSH every day then turn around and cry about Clinton 10+ years after….their stupidity knows no bounds
Ask them a tax question and they will scream and yell all talking points that Fox News gave them but as usual, zero in-depth substance will be included
Now, now, why so cynical? Substance…that is something obviously for the intellectual elites who would sooner have you living under the red flag of socialism than this land of the free…for those who can afford it.
