Republican idiocy

Tuesday Twitter roundup

Why worry about substance when empty rhetoric is so readily available?

The Affordable Care Act already does those things, and does them so well people like you are forced to talk about some nebulous other program that will supposedly eclipse it. It's time to find a new monster to fear, because Americans have outgrown this scary bedtime story.

GOP jobs plan: Take your "Sleepy Hollow" somewhere else

Wilmywood fading into film industry obscurity:

Fox Television Group chairman Dana Walden had previously told the StarNews that if the show was renewed for a third season, it would move production to the Atlanta area in the wake of North Carolina’s new grant program that caps the amount of money projects can earn at $5 million.
Industry members say $5 million is considerably less than the 25 percent rebate of total spending the show got for each of its first two seasons.

According to several local crew members, people who worked on the show in Wilmington may have opportunities to apply for jobs whenever and wherever it resumes production. As of now, however, nothing is confirmed.

Cue the right-wing Twit brigade to proclaim: "Nobody is losing their jobs! They can keep them if they want to!" If they want to move to Atlanta, that is, where there are tens of thousands of unemployed and underemployed workers that will be scrambling to take those jobs away from the NC folks who do go there. Gee thanks.

Burning down your house because you don't like the wallpaper:

The last time somebody pulled a treasonous stunt like this, a whole lot of American soldiers died because of it:

Mr. Pittenger goes to Israel

And disparages his own President with idiotic historic references:

The Charlotte Republican accused the president of appeasement in negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program.

“Benjamin Netanyahu is the Winston Churchill of our day, warning the world about Iran,” Pittenger said. “President Obama is the Neville Chamberlain of our day, in seemingly total denial of the enormous risk and … (how vulnerable) we are to their nuclear capabilities.”

This idiot has no business sitting in Congress, much less on any committees that have any national security implications. Obama hasn't "given" anything to Iran, and he's actually bullied the rest of the world into not doing business with the regime in Tehran. As opposed to the right wing's hero Ronald Reagan, who gave Iran very heavy weapons:

The NCGA laser-focused on jobs and the economy:

Um, what? Seriously, what? So, if you're in a 55 mph zone, and the car in in front of you is going 30, you're stuck there. *sigh*
