In politics, money is power. If we get someone in office who's serious about cutting the federal budget, then that's a huge threat to the Big Government Statists' power. They are going to fight tooth and nail to hold onto that power. It's gonna get very ugly before November.
Whenever liberals accuse their ideological opponents of supporting "greed", I always respond with a simple question: What's greedier, to keep more of what you've earned, or to take more of what someone else has earned?
Governments, like people, tend to do what's best for their own self-interest: whatever gives them the best benefit for the least amount of work. As long as the possibility of getting a bailout exists, countries like Spain will always choose that over making real reforms that would fix their problems. Get a new infusion of cash, kick the can down the road for a few more years, rinse and repeat. The only way these countries will turn themselves around is if the cash spigot gets shut off for good and they are left with no choice but to fend for themselves.

Impacting Poverty

This is what happens when you have people in charge of the private sector who have never owned or managed a business in their lives. They assume that if they raise the minimum wage, business owners will just start paying their employees more money, and that will be that. But if they understood how the business world really works, they'd realize that most business owners can't afford to pay their employees more, so to recoup the costs they will have no choice but to either (a) cut some jobs or (b) pass the cost on to customers by raising prices. Either way its a detriment to the business and to the economy as a whole.

If being fat and passionate was good enough for Winston Churchill, it's good enough for Christie.

Obama's Savage Administration

Liberals feel the same way about bullies as they do about the rich: they have no problem with them, as long as they're on the right side of the aisle. Or should I say, the left side.
Bush meets with Saudi leaders? Liberals scream about how he's in league with them for oil. Obama meets with Saudi leaders- and BOWS to them? Crickets.
Leaders get things done, but celebrities win elections.
Obama's entire campaign message: "It's not fair that some people are really successful, like me! So for the sake of fairness, those people have to give more of their money...to me!"

MTV's 'Savage' Schoolyard

"In an online promo, Savage boasts "straight people correctly intuit that gay people know more about sex than they do."" Gee, that's funny, because I thought it was a homophobic stereotype to assume that gay people are more sexualized than straight people.
