The media making lemonade out of lemons

…He bet $1000 a hand instead of his usual $30,000 a hand. But I knew. The trick with whales like Ichikawa was they can’t bet small for long, he didn’t think of it as win­ning $10,000 he thought of it as los­ing $90,000. So he upped his bets. Until he dropped his win­ning back and a mil­lion of his own cash. In a Casino the car­di­nal rule is to keep them play­ing, and keep them com­ing back, the longer they play, the more they lose. In the end we get it all.” Casino 1995

This story at the Wash­ing­ton Post is…interesting:

The mod­er­ate mid­dle wins the day

…really? The “Mod­er­ate Mid­dle” were anx­ious to pass actual tax increases, the mod­er­ate mid­dle didn’t want the deal that they finally voted for. The Estab­lish­ment voted for this bill (par­tic­u­larly the Democ­rats) voted for this Bill because their lead­er­ship had pushed it.

Rush made a lot of the White House Web site tout­ing the deal, but what else could they do? They cer­tainly couldn’t put up, “Vote for this deal because I got rolled and I need to be bailed out Stat!”

The mid­dle lost, the pres­i­dent lost and the media needs to turn this into a win for some­one other than the tea party. What else can they do? Admit they lost? HA!

The GOP needed 42 votes, and democ­rats en-​mass hung back until the num­ber was estab­lished and then jumped on board because they didn’t want to keep the lead­er­ship along and wanted the demo­c­ra­tic party credit for being “responsible”.

Tea Party Repub­li­cans were split, just as tea party sup­port­ers on-​line were split. I think that a vote either way was jus­ti­fi­able and I also think that if the bill didn’t pass you would have seen the 14th amend­ment card played by Obama and the debt ceil­ing would be gone…per­ma­nently.

This was like a pair of friends at a Crap game, after 8 straight points one friend decides to get off the bus and take their win­nings. The other friend doesn’t want to stop, they are on a roll, but the first friend is the ride so they have to go. The sec­ond guy will be mad all the way home until when he gets home and find his bills paid and money to pave the dri­ve­way and replace that dryer that is held closed by a base­ball bat and a hunk of wood.

This is deal or no deal, the tea party came home with a $50,000 case. I would have liked the mil­lion but for now $50,000 will be just fine.

This was and always has been a polit­i­cal bat­tle, and we won, BIG.

And next year we will win bigger.

Update: If you won’t believe me will you believe Sarah Palin ?

We shall take this vic­tory and make sure our politi­cians in office today are learn­ing from this vic­tory,” Ms. Palin said Mon­day night on Fox News, where she is a paid con­trib­u­tor. “It’s not a 100% pure gen­uine vic­tory. We just handed the most lib­eral pres­i­dent, I believe, in U.S. his­tory a $2.4 bil­lion debt increase.” …

what a RINO.

The moderate middle wins the day

…really? The “Moderate Middle” were anxious to pass actual tax increases, the moderate middle didn’t want the deal that they finally voted for. The Establishment voted for this bill (particularly the Democrats) voted for this Bill because their leadership had pushed it.

Rush made a lot of the White House Web site touting the deal, but what else could they do? They certainly couldn’t put up, “Vote for this deal because I got rolled and I need to be bailed out Stat!”

The middle lost, the president lost and the media needs to turn this into a win for someone other than the tea party. What else can they do? Admit they lost? HA!

Tea Party Republicans were split, just as tea party supporters on-line were split. I think that a vote either way was justifiable and I also think that if the bill didn’t pass you would have seen the 14th amendment card played by Obama and the debt ceiling would be gone…permanently.

“We shall take this victory and make sure our politicians in office today are learning from this victory,” Ms. Palin said Monday night on Fox News, where she is a paid contributor. “It’s not a 100% pure genuine victory. We just handed the most liberal president, I believe, in U.S. history a $2.4 billion debt increase.” …
