    Geithner: ‘I Don’t Understand’ Why Debt Ceiling Debate Is Back — Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner told the PBS NewsHour’s Jeffrey Brown during a factory tour Thursday that he couldn’t understand why the debate over the federal debt limit is back again. “Because look at how much damage it caused the country last August. I mean, it was terribly damaging for the country. And the idea you can govern effectively at this time in American history — you know, we’re fighting wars. We’ve got a major financial crisis in Europe. We have all of these challenges for the rest of the country with political politicians threatening to default if we don’t adopt a partisan political agenda. It’s deeply irresponsible. There’s no basis for it.”PBS NewsHour

    "USED TO BE KNOWN AS UNPATRIOTIC: “There is no need to butt into a fast moving story when the secretary of state is in Beijing with delicate negotiations and say it’s a day of shame for the Obama administration. Hillary Clinton is waking up right now. Let’s see if she can pull this off in the next 12 hours or so,”"

    American companies that aren’t investing in the U.S. are unpatriotic — Jim Hoffa →

    “I think the president should challenge the patriotism of these American corporations that are sitting on the sidelines. The problem in America isn’t that we don’t have enough money. We’ve got more money than any other country in the world. The problem is American businesses not spending it and not getting it in the game.”Jim Hoffa, president of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, blasting American companies who are not spending their capital in the U.S. as “unpatriotic”

    Hoffa says that as if American businesses would be shamed by such a label. We’re teetering on the verge of Corporatism, and the only allegiance being pledged by American (multinational) companies is to their CEOs and their stockholders. There are no more ‘countries.’ There’s no such thing as patriotism anymore.

    Video: Wisconsin Teapartyers CHEER when blamed for the USA’s credit downgrade

    Patriots, plain and simple. (And THAT’S called sarcasm.)

    I see ONE HEAD without gray hair in this crowd of idiots — and you and I both know that probably means the majority are drawing government assistance (Social Security / Medicare):

    They really are  childish, aggressively stupid, resentful, angry fools who lash out like crabs in a bucket.

    Watch “Patriot” Bill O’Reilly interrupt the President of the United States A TOTAL OF 48 TIMES during his interview

    As Bill Maher said last night on Lawrence O’Donnell’s show, “…and Bill O’Reilly, who claims to be such a patriot — how unpatriotic, in my view, to treat a President that way. How does that look to other countries when you’re interrupting and belittling?”
