House Republicans tells Wall Street to "F--- Off and Die!"

John "the bonehead" Boehner has just admitted that the bailout failed, not on its merits, but because the House Republicans decided to engage in partisan politics. According to CNN:
"I do believe that the vote could have succeeded," Boehner said in a news conference. "But the speaker had to give a partisan speech ... that poisoned our caucus."
Frankly, it is no surprise to anyone that the GOP would be willing to let millions of Americans lose their jobs and their financial security just to bitch-slap the Majority Party. Heck, you think Boehner's going to lose his home as the stock market plunges like the comet that killed the dinosaurs?

Shocking, isn't it? We're all about to lose our retirement packages because the assholes who precipitated this mess are feeling all pissy about it. House Republicans are punishing the entire country because Nancy Pelosi hurt their feelings.

Well, don't you believe it.

Only Boehner is a big enough asshole to vote down the bill simply because he hates the Democrats.

The rest of them voted against it because they just don't give a rat's ass that the economy is going in the shitter like burritos coming out of a Yankee in Tijuana.
"I fear that it is too much bailout and not enough work out."
-Rep. Jeb Hensarling,. R-Texas

“People’s re-elections played into this to a much greater degree than I would have imagined,”
- Rep. Deborah Pryce, R-Ohio

“This is a huge cow patty with a piece of marshmallow stuck in the middle of it and I am not going to eat that cow patty,”
- Rep. Paul Broun, R-Georgia

"If, like me, you came here because you believe in limited government and the freedom of the American marketplace, I urge you vote in accordance with your convictions..."
-Rep. Mike Pence, R-Indiana.
Well said, Mr. Pence. When your constituents are broke, unemployed ,uninsured and homeless, and need to come up with money to cover their medical bills, just remind them they are free to spend their convictions.

Conviction and $2 will buy you a cup of coffee. So far, anyway.
