  •  Just saw Rendell on MSNBC again 30 min ago (11+ / 0-)

    with his standard by-line "Former Democratic Governor of Pennsylvania."

    He was discounting the Sequesters deadline -- for the more pressing issue, of "our huge national debt problem -- as you well know Alex [Witt]."

    "It's costing us a billion dollars a day -- we can't keep going this way, etc. etc."

    Ed Rendell predicted another "can kick" on the Sequester,
    and that we should "finally get serious about America's real debt problems in the upcoming months."

    Funny how Rendell, never said a word about the Peterson "Fix the Debt" group -- that he is now co-chairman of.

    Not ha, ha Funny, either.

    (MSNBC failed to mention it too.)

    •  "Can kick" is a fix the debt buzz phrase (2+ / 0-)

      Even have a big can as a mascot and shirts that say something like "this can kicks back"...

      IIRC this mascot can even taught Alan Simpson how to dance Gangnam Style a few months ago - it's all about outreach and making the astroturf seem harmless.  

      If you're not talking about what billionaire hedgefund bankster Peter G. Peterson is up to you're having the wrong conversations.

      on a CNBC program before the Presidential election last year.

      Oh, and he also insults the Democratic Party base.

      Watch this, if you want to see sickening!

      Sorry about the extra spaces--couldn't eliminate them.
