Chris Matters kicks Rep. Thornberry's !@$!#$ (VIDEO)

For the record, Mac Thornberry (R-TX) is a lying sack of--

The amount of time, he spends twisting and contorting himself into a pretzel, labelling the torture at Abu-Gahrib a "systemic failure" that no one should be held accountable for. Ever.

Declaration of War...

The Obama Administration is nearing a near that will put Health Care Reform through the Budget Reconciliation Process, basically immunizing it against Republican Filibusters in the Senate.

The Republicans have said if Democrats resort to Budget Reconciliation, that bipartisanship is dead.

Well, if the Teabaggers are any indication, bipartisanship has been dead. You guys killed it.

Best of all, at least to me, the Obama Administration has declared war.

In a meeting with House Republicans at the White House Thursday, President Obama reminded the minority that the last time he reached out to them, they reacted with zero votes -- twice -- for his stimulus package. And then he reminded them again. And again. And again.

A GOP source familiar with the meeting said that the president was extremely sensitive -- even "thin-skinned" -- to the fact that the stimulus bill received no GOP votes in the House. He continually brought it up throughout the meeting.

Obama also offered payback for that goose egg. A major overhaul of the health care system, he told the Republican leadership, would be done using a legislative process known as reconciliation, meaning that the GOP won't be able to filibuster it.

Congress has until October 15 to pass health care or student lending reform under the normal process. If it doesn't, reconciliation can be used to eliminate the 60-vote requirement.

Hillary vs. Pence (VIDEO)

Everyone's been talking about Hillary's "exchange" with the worthless Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), but her pushback against Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN) (A 2012 wannabee) was ten times better. Professional. Firm. Honest, and best of all...she threw an elbow.
