Cheers and Jeers 04/19/09

I am trying something new here at RMG looking at the week in review.  It’s done in many other places.  If people respond well I’ll try to do one each Sunday.  Cheers are good Jeers are bad.

CHEERS!  To Richard Tisei:

“Perhaps the Lieutenant Governor should spend more time tending to his own backyard. I understand there was an overflow crowd of over 2,500 people in Worcester yesterday who are strongly opposed to the Patrick-Murray Administration’s proposed tax increases. The Administration’s rampant use of patronage, overspending and mismanagement of the state have ignited a firestorm of outrage in every city and town throughout the Commonwealth.”

 Nice.  I love it when our leadership fights back on things.  http://www.scalingthehill.com/…

JEERS!  To the Sales Tax:  Sales Tax increases, cigarette tax increases, gas tax increases, tax tax increases.  Let’s keep raising them until you have to go to NH to afford a box of Tic-Tacs.  http://redmassgroup.com/sh…

MORE BELOW THE FOLD….

CHEERS!  To Liberty:  …and to Worcester.  The Tea Party’s were a huge success around the country.  It feels like Liberty is finally making a comeback!  http://worcesterteaparty.com/

JEERS! To Obama:  For repeatedly misleading the public about “90% of guns.”  http://www.foxnews.com/politic…

JEERS! to Chris Dodd: Less than 1% of his money cam from in state.  If CT were an average state he would have gotten 2%.  Ouch!  Maybe this deserves a “cheer.”  his problems have potentially blue a blue state in play.  http://www.connpost.com/ci_121…

CHEERS! to Gov. Rick Perry:  Okay, I don’t actually want Texas to leave the union.  Yet, as someone who follows politics as a hobby I found this to be fantastically entertaining.  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/…

CHEERS! to the New York Times: For calling out Obama on false budget cuts.  In the face of liberal media establishment newspapers failing across the country, dare they make an outside the box move and behave like actual journalists?

Three-quarters of those “reductions,” however, reflect assumptions that the nation would have had as many troops in Iraq in 10 years as it does now, even though President George W. Bush signed an agreement with Baghdad before leaving office that would result in the withdrawal of all American forces within three years.
