    As per the incredibly stupid Chuck Shumer, aka the 'schmuck':



    "So I would urge my Republican colleagues, no matter how strong they feel — you know, we have three branches of government: we have a House, the Senate, we have a President, and all three of us are going to have to come together and give some. But it is playing with fire to risk the shutting down of the government, just as it is playing with fire to risk not paying the debt ceiling."



    Chuck Shumer's Three Branches of Government: House, Senate, and President | American Conservative Values


    This man serves on the judiciary committee deciding who should be on our federal courts. :rolleyes:

    Ha.....

    Give the guy SOME credit, at least he was able to count THREE. It would've been way better if he said 'We have the Nina, the Pinta and also the Santa Maria."

    He says "all three of us have to come together" when a democrat says that it means that some republicans like Snowe, Collins and the new guy Scott Brown should join the dingobats but God Forbid a democrat goes with the Neo Cons.
    Lieberman was Bi-Partisan they wanted to kill him.

    Never trust a man that always has a sneaky grin on their face (Schumer)

    I think we waste far too much time on these trivial word police games, which plays right into the narrative that Coke, Pepsi, and the drive-by media hopes for. I don't think Shumer believes that those are the 3 branches of government. I think he's simply refering to the 3 parts of the government that need to work together to resolve the financial issues we face. I really hate when people focus on stupidity like this. It only serves to dumb down the overall conversation to the mental migit level. For example, certain media outlets will post this noon and night, and talk about this instead of the real issues we're facing. All sides do this to the detriment of what's important. Instead of talk about candidates or their views on the issues, they talk about some word they misused. Such a shame. It's like the people in here who criticize someone's spelling. As if a person's spelling matters to the actual issue or point being discussed.

    BTW, this isn't to say that there aren't incidents where people, or pols, say something that does warrant a "wow is that dude dumb" criticism tossed their way.

    Focusing on substantive issues is the key.

    perhaps he's just saying what we all know: that the judicial branch has become nothing more than a vessel for soulless corporate initiative, not any "branch of government."

    certainly their rulings the past 10.5 years bare that out.

    I'm hoping that when he realized that he mis-spoke, or said something that, if taken at face value, wasn't what he intended, he clarified his remark. If that's the case, anybody still making an issue of it is just being a jackass.

    I see, you think those are the 3 branches of government? Of course it was a mistake.

    And really, with wolf gone, you may the last one here who should ever make an attempt at calling anybody out on partisanship. "Partisan bastards" indeed...

    Remember all the legislatures who when asked what amendment of the constitution gave them the authority to force people to buy a product or be fined/jailed laughed but couldn't cite a constitutional basis. Shumer is representative of this mindset.

    As an aside this is a minor issue cited only in the conservative blogosphere, if something this stupid had been uttered by Bachmann we can only imagine the front page headlines.

    Yes, we can only imagine! Poor, persecuted righties.

    (You see Bachmann on front page headlines a lot, do you? I guess you're subscribing to the harry newswire)

    Ah yes, that would be a good example of the type of thing that would get a deserving "wtf?". ;)

    I admit I'm Partisan, my gripe is how the democrats are always bleating about Partisanship but they only want the republicans to practice it, if a democrat breaks ranks and crosses the aisle they disown him.

    I HAVE SAID MANY TIMES "I AM A FLAMING NEO CON" THE FAR WING DID THAT TO ME, I WAS ONCE A MASSACHUSETTS DEMOCRAT, FOR MANY YEARS, THEN ALONG CAME THE LOONS WITH ALL OF THEIR SOCIALIST, FAR LEFT, BLEEDING HEART BLAME AMERICA, ANTI LAW AND ORDER, SEX SEX SEX DO-GOODER BULLSH!T, THE DEMOCRATS TODAY REMIND ME OF "MTV" DIP SH!TS.
