Leave-it and Barbie: two politicians made for each other

We all know the deal about Tim "The Liar" Leave-it and Ridgefield Barbie.

The Liar was elected because he, well, lied deliberately and repeatedly about his stance on ripping all of Southwest Washington with his toll scam.

Ridgefield Barbie was elected because she was parachuted in here after an 11 year absence to scam the establishment nod to run for Congress.

She was utterly worthless in the Legislature, and has lived up to that accomplishment in Congress. She's proven herself gutless with her ongoing refusal to face her constituency unless they bring their checkbooks.

The Liar kicked her face in after a worthless letter asking for an equally worthless gerrymandered CTran tax district vote on loot rail.

The Camas Manikin has the ability to kill the entirety of this project... by herself... if her demands aren't meant.

She can end the funding for all of this at the federal level. She has the ability to make sure this entire project is put to a countywide vote, and her worthless letter to The Liar was designed to fool people into believing she actually wants a vote.

She doesn't.

Barbie supports the entirety of the CRC project; much like, come to think of it, Marc Boldt, who was the reason Babs got the appointment in the first place to the legislature.. since he made a deal with two male democrat county commissioners from Cowlitz... one of whom, Axel Swanson, now works for Boldt at an absurd $80,000 or so a year.

She doesn't WANT her constituency to BELIEVE that, so she sent a couple of letters asking for a vote.

The Liar, who mistakenly believes himself to be all that politically, caved her ass in... publicly.

She, had she been possessed of even an idea of what testosterone is for, could have beaten him around the head and shoulder reason with a loot rail bridge piling.

Instead, she did her nails... or something.

So, today, these two, neither possessed of an ounce of integrity or courage, "met." Now its all sweetness and light... and we, the people, are going to get screwed because of it... and her... and him.

Yup... they're made for each other, because they're exactly, precisely alike.

Worthless and a danger to our community for generations to come.

Herrera Beutler, Leavitt meet face to face

After sparring publicly, congresswoman, mayor try to bury hatchet

Congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler and Vancouver Mayor Tim Leavitt met last week to bury the hatchet — but signs say there may still be some of the blade sticking up.
The pair met Thursday in Vancouver for a one-on-one talk, Leavitt said.
“I felt it was time and it was appropriate to sit down face to face with our congresswoman and discuss details of the Columbia River Crossing, look for common ground and work to bury the hatchet on previous public interactions and correspondence,” Leavitt, 41, said.
Leavitt and Herrera Beutler, 33, have sparred publicly over the CRC, exchanging letters calling each other’s motivations into question. Herrera Beutler has called for an immediate vote in the entire service district on a C-Tran sales tax increase for light rail and bus rapid transit. Leavitt has urged the board to take its time to ensure members have all the information they need before going to voters.
Demanding a vote from such a small number of people... people who can force tens of thousands of us who weren't allowed to vote to pay their tax shows how worthless she is.

This entire project SHOULD have had a county wide vote $140 million or so. Babs COULD have made that happen, and hasn't.

Figure that out.

Could Herrera BE a bigger idiot?


It's simply not possible.

They must have to stick a key into the middle of her back every morning and wind her up to get her moving.

Her reliance on the voices of a PITTANCE of voters as to what the vast majority believe or want shows this woman is so stupid, she is literally dangerous.

Here's a memo, Barbie: the CTran district vote that you're so hot and bothered about will be a tiny, tiny percentage of the electorate, and it will in o way represent anything CLOSE to what your "constitiuents" think about this rip ff, save for the few thousand who will be allowed to vote to assign these taxes/fees/tolls to the rest of us.

Are you really that moronic that you don't KNOW that?

In the article, she babbled:
A new bill would make a difference in securing the $450 million-plus of federal highway funding that the controversial project needs to get off the ground. Yet at the same time, the freshman Republican told The Columbian’s editorial board a vote on light rail would give her a better idea of local support for the $3.5 billion highway, light rail and bridge project.
Fine... IF it's a county-wide vote instead of that gerrymandered, all-the-no-votes-silenced vote that she seems to favor.

But it won't be. And when she mumbles THIS:
While she said she’d like to see an overall up-or-down vote on the entire project, she said that legally and practically, a C-Tran vote on the operations and maintenance of light rail is the best route. Should the measure pass, then she said she knows her constituents support the plans as they stand. If it fails, then Herrera Beutler said the need for a new bridge does not go away, but “it does mean we’re going to have to redraw things.”
She's flat, fricking lying.

"Should the measure pass...." are you fricking KIDDING me?

65,000 commuters will be kept from voting if they live out of the tiny CTran district, cut to force us to pay the tax while simultaneously keeping us from having any say on the issue.

She will have no idea "what her constituents" think about this, because hundreds of thousands of us WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO VOTE.

This vote, to have ANY goal of showing her "what her constituency thinks," MUST BE COUNTY WIDE< IF NOT REGION WIDE. And if there ARE legal reasons why that can't happen (and, of course, there aren't) then SHE should set about to fix them legislatively... instead of sticking her finger up her nose and saying, "... oh, gee, well, I guess I'll just keep pushing this sham vote..."

My God, that woman is stupid.

She is an embarrassment. I would almost vote for another Obama before I would ever, EVER, vote for her.

So, wondering about the next trillion Ridgefield Barbie and the GOP will be forking over to Obama?

I had a few things to say at the time:

Monday, August 01, 2011
Congressman Hinton would be a "no."

With the GOP's betrayal of the people of the United States with this con job that fixes NOTHING in our budget, I've got to say this in words even Ridgefield Barbie can understand:

Congressman Hinton would be a "no."

I get that she's all a flitter about avoiding "default." But this is where I remind Babs that when it comes to cowardice, a hero only dies once.

Barbie's political cowardice?

In viewing all of this, Congressman Hinton has only one question: does this legislation SOLVE THE PROBLEM?

Of course not.

It's so far from "solving" anything that I am... again... ashamed of the party I have worked so hard and sacrificed so much for over the years.

NOW is the time to address the issue. People like Barbie lack the courage to confront the issues NOW, either not knowing or caring that as time goes on, this problem will get worse... and worse. Ultimately, the trouble surrounding our impending bankruptcy, which is still confronting this Nation, will make this controversy look like a fender-bender.

This scam has no cuts. This scam changes nothing. This scam makes no changes while forking over ANOTHER $2.4 trillion for Obama to waste, making the GOP WILLING participants in our fiscal rape... just as guilty as the fringe leftists that have put us in this position in the first place.

And Babs doesn't have the guts to fight for what's right.


And before that, this:

More stupidity: How Obama screwed the GOP and us all on the debt ceiling scam.

So, the news is out: The deal is cut and we're screwed.

The claim?
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Ending a perilous stalemate, President Barack Obama and congressional leaders announced agreement Sunday night on an emergency deal to avoid to avert the nation's first-ever financial default. The arrangement would cut more than $2 trillion from federal spending over a decade.
This is an out and out lie.

The "deal," "cuts" nothing.

That's right, I said it: There will be NO cuts.

What the "deal" does for a short time is reduce the increases scheduled for upcoming budgets.

NO budget will be ANY SMALLER then the budget we have now.

Only in DC and Olympia does a "cut" somehow equate to spending hundreds of billions more then we are spending now.

And the GOP, including that clueless moron representing us in Congress now, will go along with this... this.... abortion.

And now, as we hurtle over the cliff both parties are shoving us over, we have to wonder: what was all the fuss about? After all, we now all know that Greece, Ireland, Portugal and Spain are the models we're following. Who in their right minds believes for one second that under these conditions, our outcomes will be any different?

This columnist sums it up far better then I ever could:
Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them...

Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?

Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?

You and I don't propose a federal budget. The president does.

You and I don't have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.

You and I don't write the tax code, Congress does.

You and I don't set fiscal policy, Congress does.

So, thanks to Boehner (Who already came out here for one of her infamous checkbook-only town hall meetings) and the rest of the morons in the House, we caved and blew through the bogus "debt ceiling" like it's not even there. Because, after all, with clowns like this running the show, it ISN'T there.

And now, these same idiots are reminding people of their stupidity, much like the Camas Manikin and her colleagues screwed up handling Reid's scam plan and the payroll tax cut extortion, instead of sticking it out and seeing it through.

And now? Now we get to fork over ANOTHER trillion-plus so Barbie's democrat buddies and Obama can vaporize it and bury us under an even bigger mountain of debt... $16.4 trillion or so.

Thanks for all you've done to screw us, Babs. I'm sure we appreciate it.

(I'll be gone for a couple of hours. Need to get a refill of my Congressional GOP Brand of KY jelly)
