POMPOUS IS TOO NICE OF A WORD

As Jonah Goldberg said, this video clip will hurt your brain.

This is why people are fed up these days.  Our politicians are dimwits who cuss at and belittle their constituents when asked simple questions of fact.  

People are straight-up tired of pompous politicians, jerks who think they're better than us because they appropriate our money to fly around on fancy jets. 

I'm with Glenn Beck: if Congress can't agree to this simple 5 point pledge, then they're worthless.

The more we borrow, the richer we are...seriously?  That is the dumbest thing I've ever heard.

1 This video was infuriating. I didn't find the interviewer's questions offensive in any way. They were the same type of questions I would have asked.  The arrogance Stark displayed was hard to fathom. I hope this goes viral and costs him his seat. He deserves it.

2 Oh for the love of all that is holy...  INFURIATING.

What a pompous douche.  And he's ALWAYS been a pompous douche, too (I lived in his district at one time). 

Oh, and his degree isn't in economics, either.  So perhaps instead of attacking someone else's ability to question, he should find someone who fits his apparent definition of who is allowed to explain. 

And finally - Stark actually called a military member who had written him a letter critical of his vote on Iraq and left this message for him:

Dan, this is Congressman Pete Stark, and I just got your fax. And you don't know what you're talking about. So if you care about enlisted people, you wouldn't have voted for that thing either. But probably somebody put you up to this, and I'm not sure who it was, but I doubt if you could spell half the words in the letter, and somebody wrote it for you. So I don't pay much attention to it. But I'll call you back later and let you tell me more about why you think you're such a great goddamn hero and why you think that this generals [sic] and the Defense Department, who forced these poor enlisted guys to do what they did, shouldn't be held to account. That's the issue. So if you want to stick it to a bunch of enlisted guys, have your way. But if you want to get to the bottom of people who forced this awful program in Iraq, then you should understand more about it than you obviously do. Thanks

And yet he continually gets re-elected.  By enormous margins.

4 People are straight-up tired of pompous politicians

"People"? You mean the millions who elected Obama and who will vote for us socialists forever? The masses who will never regret keeping St. Ted (Barack bless him) in office for decades?

jerks who think they're better than us

We are better. We have power. We love it, and aren't afraid to (ab)use it. Might makes right! (With a small r, of course.)

People love the powerful. They want dynasties - Kennedys and Obamas.

"5 point pledge"? How about a five-year plan?

The more we borrow, the richer we are...seriously?

Seriously. The richer he is. The richer we the elites are! We cannot create, only legislate ... confiscate. Take. "Borrow" is just a prettier way of putting it.

We can do anything and you cannot stop us. When Omerica collapses, we will just flee to some Eurabian resort.

And yet he continually gets re-elected.  By enormous margins.

Just like other Great Leaders. If it weren't for Republican wreckers, results would look more like these from the DPRK:

The election committee also stated that 99.98% of all registered voters took part in voting, with 100% voting for their candidate in each district. All seats were won by the Democratic Front for the Reunification of the Fatherland, under the control of the Worker's Party.

Soon you will all vOte the prOper way.

5 It makes my eyes bleed to hear that jerk.

6 This totally reminded me of the commercial where the guy brags about all the stuff he's got, all the spending he's doing and how wealthy a life he is living. Then he asks, "How do I do it? Oh, I'm in debt up to my eyeballs" Classic.

7 There aren't really words to express my opinion of this man's arrogance...

8 I don't need a degree in proctology to determine that Pete Stark is an A-hole.

9 J@ck. @$$. >

He must by why California is collapsing under the weight of its debt so very very prosperous and wealthy!

10 Not just California, Deltasierra, but all of Omerica (emphasis ours)!

America's public debt is already 55% of GDP, twice its share in the '80s, and the US budget deficit is expected to hit $1.6 trillion this year and a further $9 trillion by 2019. If what we are witnessing is not somehow reversed, the dollar will collapse exactly the way of the Russian ruble, the Thai baht and the Malaysian ringgit did last decade, in response to their governments' fiscal derelictions. The only difference will be that a traumatized dollar will take with it America's geopolitical sway.

Who needs that? We'll be rich!

11 So rich that we won't have to worry about rising unemployment. Enjoy your coming funemployment! Sure, Pete Stark isn't too smOOth, but trust him. He graduated from MIT (Chomsky Central!) and Berkeley. He is smart. He is a Great Leader. Follow him to utOpia! If you were him and saw guys like Jan whathisname being skeptical about the prOgram for prOsperity, you'd get angry too.
