Nothing, really. It's her reflexive go to argument,
As did Ronald Reagan, as well.
Funny on one level, disheartening, even outrageous on another. No wonder this country is so fouled up these days.

IRS Admits Wrongdoing, Fined $50,000

Actually, sanctions against the IRS shouldn't come in the form of cash payments, as it's only just another form of wealth redistribution, with the taxpayer on the hook yet again. The only set of proper sanctions for bureaucrats, regardless of agency, should START with job/pension loss, then progress it's way into prison time.
The two most frightening words in any Democrat's vocabulary are "comprehensive" and "omnibus," as they are just cover for all manner of legislative mischief.
I hold little hope for Congress being rid of Pelosi, short of retirement, or passing away. And that's just a shame for America as a whole.
And this is the same government that is trying to demonstrate its incompetence at email retention, while at the same time trying to tell us that government is the best choice for health care administration, among other strange, mind-blowing dichotomies. Amazing, isn't it?
Somehow, I kinda doubt that Libtroll possesses the ability to utilize any common sense. Even the addition of the phrase of "even if you put a gun to his head," would be, in Libtroll's case, little more than a waste of time and effort.
lst sez: "Guys this is not about enforcing regulations, it is about common sense and the well being of the future of all Americans." -- Well, actually, it IS about enforcing regulations. After all, what other way can a liberal impose his generally useless beliefs upon the populace as a whole. Common sense has little, if anything, to do with it. As to your other clause, it is little more than an abstraction of fairly high order, thus is capable of near endless definition, or even none, depending upon who is utilizing such a concept. Such fluidity renders it useless. "...we US citizens should unite and socially boycott these large 16 ounce cups on our own." -- If you wish to take such action, for yourself, and in your own name, then by all means, feel free to do so. What you do not have, and probably never will, is the ability to push your agenda in my stead, quite in spite of what you may think, or believe. If you can convince me, and the other skeptics out there, that your agenda is worth the time of day, then fine, go right ahead. But you haven't done any convincing of anyone, other than perhaps yourself. As for the rest, it is merely one fairly large assumption. "We are the consumers and we should direct the companies what they ought to sell us. " -- That's actually a factual statement, but here is where you, and other liberals stray into error: your belief in the "rightness" of your cause du jure makes you think that should your belief lose economically, that gives you perfect right to then use the power of government to ensure that your view ultimately prevails. That's the sort of thing that does little but get you into rhetorical trouble, because that right you presume to use doesn't actually exist outside your own head.

The 'Obama Brand' in Crisis

Perhaps I would label those supporters of Obama, at least outside his inner circle, with the broad brush of ignorance. The inner circle however, is an entirely different story. That group I would label as cynical, arrogant, to use just two adjectives. The inner circle of Team Obama knows precisely what they are dealing with, and the same could be said of your average conservative in this country.
