I have often thought about starting a thread about the Drudge Headlines


it is amazing how he completely rewrites or reinvents them to suit his agenda

and sometimes the article is 180 degrees different than how his headlines state it.

and even more disturbing, these (false) Drudge headlines often times become sound-bite talking points for responsible news outlets.

Financial overhaul falls short in procedural vote

Quote:
Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.) joined Republicans in voting to prevent debate from proceeding

. When the outcome was clear, Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) also voted no, a move that allows him to reintroduce the measure later.

Huffington Post

Conservative firebrands were out in force in Tyler, Texas over the weekend, speaking at a Glenn Beck-headlined "Taking Back America" rally.

"I believe that Barack Obama is God's punishment on us today, but in 2012, we are going to make Obama a one-term president," declared Texas state Rep. Leo Berman (R-Tyler) according to the Tyler Morning Telegraph.

Berman's extreme words were accompanied by other comments from conservative figures, including Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Tex.), who, in the height of the health care debate last month said that "demons" had invaded Washington and were causing Democrats to mislead voters about the merits of the bill.

Glenn Beck, speaking at the event, said: "Do you believe this is God's land? Do you believe our constitution was divinely inspired? Why do you believe those things?" Beck asked. "If God is with us, who can possibly stand against us? The answer is no one."

Texas Gov. Rick Perry also made an appearance and called the Tea Party an "army" that was gathering to "take their country back and send a message to this administration, to this Congress," an army that he said he was "proud to be in."

Can we just give Texas to Mexico and be done with it?

Edit: Also, what does divinely inspired mean? I've never heard the constitution called that. But not surprising considering the amount of GOD talk there is now in this country, or from the GOP/TeaParty.

It's getting to the point where I will probably have to keep my mouth shut or just flat out lie about being a "God Fearing" individual. At least I went through the whole catholic process so I still remember enough crap to bullshit if needed.

And i love all this talk about army, and taking the country back. it is so much calling to arms and driving the fucking wackos even more wack.

Can you imagine the crazy that will come out in 2011 - 2012????

I am getting nervous about 2012

I may have waited too long to stock up on my ammo.

Most of the shops I go to are sold out, or they are rationing it at unreasonable, unconstitutional amounts.

I've had thoughts about this as well. I just can't see the country being that crazy by 2012 where i feel like i need to protect myself with a firearm....

but then i keep reading the crap spewed forth by the talking heads and leaders at these Tea Parties and I wonder if it'll turn into violence at some point. Walking out of voting areas and people getting angry over how they voted...etc

or it'll just be all talk and hot air

Why do you guys think all the Tea Party hate speech will lead to violence?

I don't see how all this anti-Dem talk will inspire people to start shooting sprees.

I mean- Americans can't be THAT nuts.

All Presidents are at risk.

I think the level of dislike for W was strong enough to lead to violence, too.

i don't think bush was every legitimately in trouble, though. any lefty who would've wanted to kill him knew cheney would be put in power which would've been 10,000 times worse. now though, who knows. though i don't see the point in killing a president after the fact (or ever, but i digress). it's all over and done with.

though people are nuts, so who knows.

RNC: Obama playing on 'class warfare and race'

The Republican National Committee Tuesday night accused President Obama of making "an appeal based on class warfare and race" after Obama outlined his party's midterm strategy of returning people who voted for the first time in 2008 to the polls in November.

Obama, in a video released this week, spoke in the demographic terms more commonly -- though very commonly -- used by political consultants, saying Democrats must appeal to "young people, African-Americans, Latinos, and women who powered our victory in 2008 [to] stand together once again."

The Wall Street Journal reports Wednesday on another Democratic strategy to fire up the base, a planned speech by DNC Chairman Tim Kaine that will reportedly allege that Republicans aim to suppress minority votes, a frequent Democratic charge that is inevitably mirrored by GOP claims of vote fraud.

"Only days after our post-racial president made an appeal based on class warfare and race, Gov. Kaine is doing the same thing," said RNC spokesman Doug Heye in an email Tuesday. "It tells you how bad things are for them. Desperate times call for desperate measures, only now it's on an advanced timetable."

In an email blasted to reporters Wednesday morning, National Republican Campaign Committee spokesman Ken Spain charged DNC Chairman Tim Kaine with playing "the race card from the bottom of the deck."

Stupid people baffle me.
