Kentucky Sen. Jim Bunning, who single-handedly blockaded extension of unemployment benefits to 400,000 and forced the furlough of 2,000 workers, is a Republican Superhero. He personifies the mean-spirited, hypocritical, wealthy-serving, obstructionist GOP.

The corporatist-centrist politicians, such as Judd Gregg, Kent Conrad, Evan Bayh, no longer afraid of a total collapse of the world economy, are using deadly innocent frauds, scare, myths, and lies about the deficit and the national debt to undermine the possibilities of progressive change in the United States. It seems, also, that they’re now being led by President Obama, who has emerged as a full-throated champion of deficit hawkism, while pretending to be concerned about the well-being of the Middle Class, during his first State of the Union speech, where the President treated us to the following statements, about the debt, and the deficit, among others.

One of the things that have always astounded the Dog is the number of myths or if you like your political commentary neat, lies that surround the Republican Brand. The idea that they are the only ones who can be effective in foreign policy, that they are the tough ones who make the hard choices, that they are the party of fiscal responsibility. These are all lies, damned-able lies.

It does not take much to find expose these lies, though it seems that most of the traditional media and the American public can’t be troubled to do so. The foreign policy trope is easily refuted by the facts that North Korea now is a nuclear power, that world is no longer willing to listen to us on issues of human rights and torture, that we are involved in two wars, one of which was preemptive and completely our choice.
