Grijalva Explains Democrats Failure: We Didn't Spend Enough!

According to Arizona District 7 Rep Raul Grijalva, the reason for the failure of Obamacare, deeper Recession, higher unemployment and and spiraling housing prices? Well, three of four would all be Bush's fault, but, according to Grijalva, Dem's simply didn't burden our children with enough debt:
The party should have added a public option to the health-care reform bill and focused more on job creation in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, plus other "bold initiatives that were compromised out by people in more vulnerable districts," he said.
See, in Grijalvanomics, The way to solve economic problems is to spend more. if your pay goes down at work, ignore reality and spend more. Can't afford car payments? buy a bigger car! Like your doctor? keep him/her but spend more. Want to earn enough money to take care of yourself? Screw You!
See in Obamaland, the only thing that matters is fixing wrongs. wrongs from 200 years ago, wrongs that have already been fixed or can't be fixed, wrongs that might occur in the future, imaginary wrongs; none of that matters. Democrats WILL fix all the wrongs. or they will DO something to fix all the wrongs even if what they do is stupid and creates more wrong than it fixes. You see Dems don't care about actually fixing anything, they care about people associating DEMOCRAT with FIX.
The problem is that some things can't be fixed. some things must be lived with, handled head on, or ignored. Democrats like Grijalva can't deal with that.

Nogales Mayor Arrest: Did He do anything Really Wrong?

Nogales mayor Octavio Garcia-Von Borstel's recent arrest on fraud charges sounds like a problem for Dems in Southern Arizona, or is it just Democrats throwing Garcia-Von Borstel and his father under the bus for something that stretches far beyond the mayor's office? The story broke today with an announcement by Terry Goddard, attorney general and Dem nominee for Governor. Why a Dem breaking a story about  another Dem doing what Democratic border mayors have always done? Two possible reasons: A) the FBI and DEA are running the show and, fearful of Von Borstel and his father breaking for Mexico, decided on the time and place for the arrests, giving Goddard a chance to make the announcement at the last minute. or 2) Goddard, aware that this corruption could break much deeper and worse if it broke closer to November for reelection of Democrats in Southern Arizona. Either way, the arrest of a 21 year-old mayor and his father with 3 million in laundered money is just the tip of the iceberg. 
But are the actions of Garcia-von Borstal (asking businesses for "protection money" for contracts and funds) any different than those of District 7's own Raul Grijalva. Both were born in Mexico and came to Southern Arizona on free rides. While Grijalva has never "worked" for himself, Von Borstal is a successful businessman. Von Borstal could claim he was helping both businesses and the city. Grijalva claims he is helping Arizona. Von Borstal allegedly took money from businesses and deposited the money in his father's cash loan business. Grijalva takes money from unions and liberal interests and "launders" them in his campaign accounts. Von Borstal shaves daily and wears a tie, Grijalva . . . wears a bolo. 
My point is that Democratic politicians, no matter what the level, are basically all master's of extortion. Some just get caught, and that really isn't fair.
